Where does the name Firefox come from? Was it used for the Arcade or NES versions? --Grandy02 07:51, 11 October 2009 (EDT)
This is called foxfire from a book "How to win at Donkey Kong" published back in 1982 (Mario was named that year when Donkey Kong Jr was released.) Firefox here , , and . --Jumper 11:03, 11 October 2009 (EDT)
- I might rename this article to Foxfire as it may be closer to the original name. Foxfire is part of Japanese folklore (kitsune-bi).--Jumper 11:28, 11 October 2009 (EDT)
火の粉 (hinoko) which means sparks is another name I came about.--Platform 20:49, 13 August 2010 (UTC)
I know this is an old discussion, but for reference, How to Win at Donkey Kong has this to say right on the first page:
- Donkey Kong is a trademark of Nintendo of America, Inc.
- CONSUMER GUIDE and PUBLICATIONS INTERNATIONAL LTD.
- are neither affiliated with nor have any contractual
- relationship with Nintendo of America, Inc. concerning
- publication of this book nor has Nintendo of America, Inc.
- authorized the publication of this book.
- I'm not even seeing "foxfire" be used on the page anywhere. If the book is unofficial entirely, I'm for the redirect deletion. 10:51, 13 July 2018 (EDT)
- So am I. (T|C) 10:53, 13 July 2018 (EDT)
