Where did this name come from?[edit]

How exactly did Prima with their guide find out what this thing's name was?

It doesn't say it at all in the game.
The preceding unsigned comment was added by Boo Destroyer (talk).

Either Nintendo told them the name or they made up one themselves. We won't know. But since the guide is officially-licensed, I think we can go with it. --Grandy02 07:12, 24 December 2009 (EST)

About the name[edit]

"Reptilian Goliath" isn't a name. It's a descriptive term. I'll spare you the 90 years it takes to load that site. Notice that "a reptilian goliath" is in lowercase. So that site didn't actually name the thing. So I ask: Does Nintendo Power have a name for this guy? I would think that since it had a name for the Greenhorn Ruins boss, it would have one for this thing as well. Otherwise, we should just move this back to "Greenfist".

There is no glitch[edit]

I am almost certain that what they're referring to is a speedrunning strategy where if one Piledrives at the very top of the arena, Greenfist will spin up and fall into the void, dealing two skulls worth of damage. Otherwise, I have no explanation as to the spontaneous two skulls damage. User:Trig Jegman/sig
