Merge to Lava Piranha[edit]

merge 4-1
This enemy is only ever encountered in battle alongside the Lava Piranha, and is in fact attached to it. Lava Buds are merely different heads of the same creature. A rose bush encompasses all the roses, despite them being different stems. It makes no sense to split this enemy, when we already contain similar examples on single articles. Even the official art of the Lava Piranha features Lava Buds alongside them, which suggests they are the same enemy. The difference in name merely suggests a description of development rather than of specieal difference.

Merge to Lava Piranha[edit]

  1. Redstar (talk) - Per proposal.
  2. Zero777 (talk) I am Zero! Tough treated like a seperate being Lava buds are still part of Lava Piranha. Zero signing out.
  3. library_girl (talk) - Redstar's explanation in the comments section makes sense. Per it
  4. Walkazo (talk) - The tattle clearly states that the Lava Buds branch out of the main Lava Piranha stem, meaning they are all part of a single organism and deserve a single page.

Leave un-merged[edit]

  1. Bloc Partier (talk) -- Though it may be an underdeveloped Lava Piranha, it shouldn't be merged. It is a quite different creature at this stage of development, or whatever you wish to call it. Different attacks, appearance, and it cannot talk. Also, if I recall correctly, it can spawn Petit Piranhas, while the mother plant cannot.

Comments[edit]

I recently removed my vote on the Petit Piranha page after careful consideration. I don't know what caused me to think a living being spawned from another living thing is still the original (children aren't their parents, for example). Despite that, I still support the merge of this enemy into the main Lava Piranha page. Same bush, different stem. As for your example of the mother stem being unable to spawn Petit Piranhas, Bloc, I have this for a response: (pardon the analogy, but it's the closest there is to a real-life example) An animal can shoot sperm from their penis, but not any species I know of can do it from their head. Even more specifically, plants are known to have certain parts as the body, and other parts as the sexual reproductive area, in a division far more distant than animal bodies divide their functions. I think the same thing can be held true for this enemy. Redstar 01:08, 19 December 2009 (EST)

Ha. Nice analogy. I definitely see your point, but I guess I'm still voting for the separation since I view it as a separate enemy. BLOC PARTIER.
Earthworms secrete gametes out of their anterior end... Besides that, however, Redstar's got the biology right: same organism, different organs. A better analogy would be Obelia, a genus of animals related to corals and jellyfish that spends most of its life-cycle as a colony of buds, half of which are used for feeding (like Lava Piranha's biting head), half of which are used for reproduction (like the Lava Buds). - Walkazo 00:56, 24 December 2009 (EST)

Picture[edit]

Is the picture that we have for this monster its sprite or is it official box art. We usually use the former, but it seems like the latter. If it is box art, can we get a sprite instead? Jdrawer 17:03, 3 February 2012 (EST)

Above, their is a proposal that was made to merge Lava Bud to Lava Piranha on december 2009 and nothing was made to merge it even if the proposal passed. Well, I will recreate it with the same arguments from this proposal. This enemy is only ever encountered in battle alongside the Lava Piranha, and is in fact attached to it. Lava Buds are merely different heads of the same creature. A rose bush encompasses all the roses, despite them being different stems. It makes no sense to split this enemy, when we already contain similar examples on single articles. Even the official art of the Lava Piranha features Lava Buds alongside them, which suggests they are the same enemy. The difference in name merely suggests a description of development rather than of specieal difference. Like Crystal King and Crystal Bit are merge for the moments.

Comments[edit]

I don't think a follow up proposal is necessary in this situation, the previous proposal clearly passed in favor of merge. Unless you think there will be a different outcome this time, I'd say go ahead and perform the merger. -- Ghost JamShyghost.PNG 20:40, 7 August 2015 (EDT)

Ok, can you please cancelled the proposal? I don't really know how to do it correctly.--LudwigVon Sig.png(TALK) 20:41, 7 August 2015 (EDT)
Done. -- Ghost JamShyghost.PNG 20:51, 7 August 2015 (EDT)
