Prima Guide Name[edit]

When looking to citation 2, it takes us to a Prima Guide website (I'm not sure if these are official as the physical guidebooks, but I don't doubt it). This citation was put there to prove this item, the Lucky Bell, is called the "Lucky Cat Power-up" according to them, however this claim is taken completely out of context. Not only does it mention, in bold, the name Lucky Bell (underlined in red), which would mean the correct way to write this would be "also referred to as by", but it also doesn't even refer to the item as such, but instead the actual power-up! To elaborate this, the phrase's origin in underlined in blue, where only "Lucky Cat" is bold, and it is referred to as the power-up, not as the item. Not to mention, which of the two can you use to break through boxes with? Clearly the power-up. So the fact that (as we can tell by the boldness) "Lucky Cat Power-up" isn't a name used by Prima, and context shows that it wouldn't make much sense for the item to be called this, I'm not too sure if this claim is really all that valid. But maybe I'm reading it differently/incorrectly? unknown.png What do you all thinks? LuckyEmile (talk) 16:05, 3 October 2018 (EDT)

Prima is definitely official, though reading that paragraph... it's possible they were referring to the Lucky Cat Suit rather than the item. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 16:08, 3 October 2018 (EDT)
Ah, glad to know we can rely on the website too. And I think I'd agree with you there. LuckyEmile (talk) 16:14, 3 October 2018 (EDT)
It's also worth mentioning that, according to a user I messaged several months ago, Goomba button is also referred to by other names in the Super Mario Odyssey Prima guide, so it's probably better if we choose the more concise name if Prima or another guide has any inconsistencies.
