Talk:Gargantua Blargg (tall)

From the Super Mario Wiki, the Mario encyclopedia

Gargantua or Crusher Blargg?[edit]

The article on Gargantua Blarggs states that "the name 'Gargantua Blargg' [was] given to a new sub-species that crushes rock and lives up to its name by towering more than two screens high"; I am assuming that would be this enemy, but the article's title and the Island Museum article refer to it as "Crusher Blargg" (the latter does not mention a "Gargantua Blargg" at all). To make matters more complicated, the article itself states that it's a Gargantua Blargg, and then has "Gargantua Blargg" link to the Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island enemy. I haven't played this game so that might have something to do with it, but this is seriously confusing; can anyone explain and/or make it a bit more clear in the articles which name is used where?--vellidragon 18:28, 11 December 2009 (EST)


The YIDS NP guide refers to these guys as Gargantua Blarggs (p. 54: "Watch out for the Gargantua Blargg that crashes up through the rocks." and p.82: "Quickly shoot the Gargantua Blargg with an egg to stun it, then jump up the platforms to reach door i."), even though Crusher Blarggs are supposed to be subspecies of said Blaargs. The Prima guide also calls them Gargantua (p. 185: "There is a flower on the post next to the chambers' right wall, but watch out for the Gargantua Blargg that rises out of the lava-filled floor."). With that in mind, is the "Crusher Blargg" unique enough to warrant a separate article and the authors simply overlooked it, or should the article be merged while using the authors to support it? Hello, I'm Time Turner.

I'd support a merge. Niiue (talk) 21:57, 11 January 2016 (EST)


Is the above comment saying that the Island Museum calls this a Crusher Blargg true? Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 21:48, 18 November 2017 (EST)

No, the Island Museum in the game just shows the enemy in a confined space but doesn't give them a name tag or description or anything like that. Crusher Blargg was just the conjectural name from that article. LinkTheLefty (talk) 08:15, 19 November 2017 (EST)
Looking back, they seem to have been talking about the article for the Island Museum at the time. Oh well. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 01:15, 12 August 2018 (EDT)
