"Balloon Bomb"[edit]

This seems to refer solely to the bomb-dropping versions, which pop themselves if I'm not mistaken, while the box and item-dropping ones need popped manually with eggs. So the non-enemy version wouldn't be a balloon bomb. Also, it's uncapitalized, and seems to describe the bomb more than the balloon. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 19:10, 23 December 2017 (EST)

Baron von Zeppelin's original description also specifically refers to it as the enemy bomb version, so we're probably looking more at a split than a rename. LinkTheLefty (talk) 19:32, 23 December 2017 (EST)
Still, proper noun vs. improper nouns are the reason Omodonmeka isn't "Pouncing pincer," to name an example. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 19:47, 23 December 2017 (EST)
I'd say, we'd leave as-is. There are a few possibilities on that translation mistake. 1) They forgot the name "Baron von Zeppelin" and knew what it was referring to 2) They simply decided to change it 3) They didn't recognize it very well. --Toasty.jpg FanOfYoshi NSMB - Splunkin Model.png 13:55, 12 February 2019 (EST)
The Yoshi's Island DS Player's Guide refers "malevolent Item Balloons" on page 98 (near the end of World 4-6). LinkTheLefty (talk) 21:31, March 19, 2019 (EDT)
