Shouldn't we create an article for him? Or maybe merge the part about Shag to 9-Volt? PeteySluggers.png+MP8 DryBones.png=Dry-Petey

I agree *plants flag that signifies that i agree with this* --Toad1 (talk) 01:59, 21 July 2018 (EDT)

i meant i agree with merging the parts about 9-Volt's pet Fronk. --Toad1 (talk) 02:02, 21 July 2018 (EDT)

I do think we should have separate articles for the Fronk species and the character Fronk (9-Volt's pet). This has been done with Toad and Yoshi, so I don't see why not.--

Fronk actually only refers to 8-Volt's pet, as mentioned here; Fronk's friends are unnamed, and although the article states that "Fronk presumably refers to both the species and the character," the keyword is presumably. Also - and I realize this is still an unpopular thing to bring up - but the Toad and Yoshi examples are outdated in Nintendo's current story, and frankly some rewriting to better align things from the both ways "species and character" perspective is long overdue and much-needed.

What about Garlic/Fronk? It says "Separate the garlic from the Fronks." MarioComix (talk) 02:07, 29 July 2018 (EDT)
It seems to be localization. For example, here is another instance in Game & Wario's "Islands" game, but there is a key difference between the English and Japanese versions: the former tells you to pick your Fronk color, but the latter is telling you to choose your character and has unique names for each of the Fronk friends, and the line "Launch your Fronks!" is simply "Launch!" instead. Either way, the English translation is inconsistent with the character card. LinkTheLefty (talk) 08:56, 29 July 2018 (EDT)
Well, we usually follow English official sources for things after all, but this is getting into the blurry region of localisation differences... MarioComix (talk) 00:36, 30 July 2018 (EDT)
Checking back now that WarioWare Gold is out, Fronk's species appears to have a new name according to "The Claw" and "Tread Carefully" descriptions - "mini Fronk". LinkTheLefty (talk) 17:22, 29 August 2018 (EDT)
Despite this, the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate spirit of five "Fronks" is labeled 「しゃぎぃ」 (Shagii) in Japanese. LinkTheLefty (talk) 23:15, 11 February 2019 (EST)

The Fronk Image[edit]

Hey guys Look at I had founded Fronk WarioWare.png I found it on Photobucket. OMG TINA.png Omg! Its Loana as Tina! Ehhh... OMG TINA.png


Perhaps the article can mention the exact colors that Fronks can appear? I f I remember correctly, they are yellow, red, and blue, but I'm not sure... --VirtualBoy Girl (talk) 21:59, 17 November 2012 (EST)
