Talk:Gold Chomp

Official? Yes, I know it is painfully obvious that these are Gold-colored Chomps, but it seems like a name we applied to it. For all we know, these could be called Chomp Chomps, Gold Chomps, Gold Chain Chomps, Golden Chain Chomps, Gold Incoming Chomps, or Golden Incoming Chomps. We just need to know whether this is an official name and where did it come from, because any one of the above names could be applied to this article in the current title's place.Knife (talk) P.S. We aren't even sure that the rolling Chomp heads in SMG were officially named Incoming Chomps

Citation needed?[edit]

Does this really need a citation if the mission it appears in has its name? If so, how does one properly cite a level as a source? Zakor1138 (talk) 23:48, 10 October 2017 (EDT)

A reference to the mission title helps, so it's been added. Thanks for the heads up. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 23:51, 10 October 2017 (EDT)

Name[edit]

Shouldn't this be renamed to "Gold Chomp"? The name "Golden Chomp" is a simple one-off mention used in a mission name, whereas "Gold Chomp" is clearly more frequently used, appearing primarily in pages 162 and 163 of the Super Mario Galaxy 2 Prima guide.

I'd support changing it. LinkTheLefty (talk) 13:34, November 13, 2019 (EST)
The name used in game should be a higher priority than what's in the guide. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 12:35, November 14, 2019 (EST)
You can say the same thing about the Swimming Beast, the Big Bird, and potentially the Manta Ray in Super Mario 64, but we're using the guide names because they're clear-cut used in the context of the subject's actual name (honestly, I think we should consider level titles to be lower priority if it's the only in-game mention since it seems to just use a subject's description and not its actual name enough times that we should be cautious).
