Shouldn't they be called Venus Fly Traps or Fly Trap or maybe Luigi Trap(just kidding)? DREAMYDARKBOWSER777 (talk) 17:43, 17 February 2015 (EST)

Yes I agree. MarioKart7player (talk) 17:45, 17 February 2015 (EST) Someone shold chang it. MarioKart7player (talk) 17:52, 17 February 2015 (EST)

Yeah, Venus Fly Trap is more specific, but maybe "Venus Fly Trap Monster" is better, albeit, more of a mouthful? Mario Green.pngKaBoom! 18:13, 17 February 2015 (EST)

Yes, I agree! VFTs are smaller than these. DREAMYDARKBOWSER777 (talk) 08:52, 22 February 2015 (EST)

Yes I agree with you both! User:MarioKart7player (talk · edits) User:MarioKart7player/sig 09:07, 22 February 2015 (EST)


For future reference, the Prima eGuide for LMDM has a couple different names for the plants:

  • "You’ll find twisting vines blocking your path, carnivorous plants snapping at your heels, and some surprisingly aggressive critters striking when you least expect it."
  • "If a flytrap gets ahold of you, repeatedly tap the buttons on the Nintendo 3DS system to free yourself.
  • "When you enter the Plant Nursery, two flytraps are snapping at anything that moves."
  • "As you cross the room, move along the room’s south edge to stay clear of the carnivorous plants."
  • "Aim the Poltergust at the nearest flytrap; when the reticle appears, hold to shoot the seed at your target.
  • "The flytrap swallows the seed pod, chokes, and shrivels away. Repeat the process with the remaining flytrap."
  • "Fire a seed pod at each of the flytraps guarding the area, then open the chest to collect the Key.
  • "As you move through the area, make sure you stay clear of the snapping plant."

And so on. Flytrap is the more consistent term (also used for the cardboard plants); I'll probably move it soon if there aren't any objections. Hello, I'm Time Turner.

Flytrap is a far more descriptive name than simply "carnivourous plant" (I think it refers to them as the carnivorous plants referring to Mario as a pesky plumber or something) as the term "carnivorous plant" encompasses a lot of plants of this nature not just venus fly traps, as the plant is clearly based off of, so I'm in support of moving this page to Flytrap.
