Merge to The Flying Krock[edit]

Question.svg This talk page or section has a conflict or a question that needs to be answered. Please try to help and resolve the issue by leaving a comment.

Conjectural name basing off a later entity. Same design as the original. Same purpose in the story as the original. I don't know why this hasn't been merged. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 18:23, March 2, 2023 (EST)

I'm not sure about a merge, but I have always been skeptical of using this name. The logic behind is that because there's King Kruizer III and IV, there must have been a I and a II. However, the Flying Krock is not called "King Kruizer I", and it looks nothing like the actual King Kruizers aside from being green and vaguely reptile-themed. As a result, there is no reason to assume that the DK64 ship is King Kruizer II, either. It's entirely possible that King Kruizers I and II are simply things we've never seen; after all, we've seen Hermie III but not Hermie I or II. If nothing else, I support renaming this article to something that doesn't have flawed fanon built into it. Alternatively, we could just merge and add a {{part conjecture}} template, similar to Krash.

I'd support it. --Green Yoshi FanOfYoshi 13:24, August 20, 2023 (EDT)
I'd also support a merge. Super Mario RPG (talk) 08:00, January 12, 2024 (EST)
Honestly, each one looks like a different type of aircraft to me. The Flying Krock is a helicopter, this one is a jet, III is a blimp, and IV is a spaceship. Yes, it has the most similarities with Rare's helicopter, but I don't think it's farfetched to say the jet can be interpreted as the missing link to the Paon line. Would it be a stretch to say that "King Kruizer" might have been a Japanese-centric rename due to the Japanese Flying Krock having "devil" in it? LinkTheLefty (talk) 08:18, January 12, 2024 (EST)
