Should this be merged with Spike? "Gabon" is Spike's Japanese name, and he's consistently kept it in most of his appearances in Japanese versions of games. --YellowYoshi398 20:41, 2 February 2007 (EST)

Seems like just the basic subspecies. No merge.

I agree. Don't merge it. Hisak 12:32, 2 June 2007 (EDT)

I also agree, they act, look and are named differently. They could have another name in the Japanesse version, ya'know. Gofer

Just a Character?[edit]

If I remember right, wasn't Gabon just a character in the intermission between levels? Perhaps you guys are looking at a player's guide, but I'm pretty sure that the intermission was just a reference the single character that's mentioned in the article. Basically, does anyone have any proof that this is a separate species and not just a single character? Stumpers! 13:09, 5 January 2008 (EST)


Gabon shares the exact same name with a Kirby enemy, although the two are drastically different: [1] Should I state that as trivia?--FREAK ~Game GameBros.png Freak~ OUT!

It's coincidence. Hello, I'm Time Turner.
Probably, I don't even remember writing this. >_>--FREAK ~Game GameBros.png Freak~ OUT!

Merge to Spike (enemy)[edit]

merge 3-0
This enemy's name is a transliteration of the Japanese name of Spike. Additionally, the two look and act similarly. Therefore, the different name is probably a simple translation oversight.

  2. KS3 (talk) Even though they look so different, they behave the same, spitting spiked balls out that can harm Mario and co.
  3. Turkishcoffee (talk) They act the same and almost look similar. How many other enemies have had massive face lifts between games?



Do you mean Lakilester, Spike_(enemy) Or something else? I landed at a disambiguation page. I don't think many people would support the merging of an article when it's not clear what's being merged. --Turkishcoffee 08:16, 5 April 2010 (EDT)

I believe he's refering to the enemy. Hello, I'm Time Turner.
Lakilester is just the first Mario-related thing I think of when I hear "spike". Looking at the enemy, I'd say we should merge them. As written the proposal wants us to merge this with a disambiguation page. Turkishcoffee (talk)
