What is the correct name: Moneybags or Money Bags? -- Son of Suns

Moneybags or MoneyBags, no difference. By the way who rewrote the ENTIRE article?

I did, however I actually redirected. It's Moneybags if I'm correct and not Money (NOTICE THE SPACE) Bags MayorPenguinPM.pngPaper Jorge

Official name? Source? Phoenix Rider

Move?[edit]

Well, considering Coin Coffer is it's most recent name, and the one it's referred to as in the article, would a move be necessary, with Moneybag becoming a redirect? Got something to say? ThatPeskyKoopaling Look at all my edits! 14:50, 7 July 2012 (EDT)

I agree, but you should make a TPP. YoshiCookie (talk) 10:15, 10 December 2015 (EST)

Official Name[edit]

So who decided that a Coin Coffer was the same enemy as a Moneybag despite looking completely different? Vent (talk) 13:01, 3 August 2012 (EDT)

Even though they act the same are not the same enemy snice their Japanese and English are different. 23.png

Where did you find that image? I've been looking everywhere for a Japanese name for Coin Coffer to confirm if its the same enemy or not, and it looks like it isn't :O Vent (talk) 15:17, 10 August 2012 (EDT)

For the record, that name says "Gamanē", where as Moneybags is "Gamaguchi". Different enemy but apparently related in some fashion. Vent (talk) 15:20, 10 August 2012 (EDT)

Identifier[edit]

Given that Super Mario 64 will be a more searched-for topic, does this page really need the identifier? Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 21:28, 25 October 2017 (EDT)

I would say "no" if "Moneybag" weren't such an unintuitive name for an enemy. Someone could be searching for the Mario Party bags, since their official name of "Coin Bag" isn't mentioned often. Or they could just be searching for moneybags in general. PMTTYD Dark Bones.pngSig.png 22:06, 25 October 2017 (EDT)
But just how popular is Mario Party, anyways? Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 22:10, 25 October 2017 (EDT)
That was just an example. The point is that "Moneybag" is an unintuitive name that fails to distunguish it from actual bags of money. Furthermore, the Moneybags themselves, regardless of their appearance in a SM64, are not a particularly iconic enemy. They're kind of remote, and their name only appears in guides. You could, on the same note, suggest that the Bats from Super Mario Galaxy have dibs on the "Bat" name, simply because they're from a more popular game than the other Bats.

Except no I couldn't because Luigi's Mansion is among the most iconic. The successor would've had about the same amount of intuitiveness, in not for the "cough" pun. But I digress. I see what you mean. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 23:22, 25 October 2017 (EDT)

True name[edit]

The New Super Mario Bros. Player's Guide, as rife with mistakes as it is ("Thwomp Trap?" "Sumo Bro?"), lists everything in singular form, yet "Moneybags" is written just like that: with an s on the end. Which most likely means that the enemy's name is, in fact, MoneybagS, with an s on the end. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 18:49, 1 November 2017 (EDT)

You raise a very good point. If only we could see if the SM64 guide treated it in the same manner, just with a space. MarioComix (talk) 22:22, 1 November 2017 (EDT)
According to LinktheLefty here, it does. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 20:13, 8 December 2017 (EST)
And the image is now uploaded, I see. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 11:09, 9 December 2017 (EST)
Yep. If you look through the page history, the reason it was changed from Moneybags in the first place is because "The one who spells Moneybag as Moneybags is crazy. I.". LinkTheLefty (talk) 11:22, 9 December 2017 (EST)
Hm, that user's still sorta-active, wonder what they'd say now? Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 11:32, 9 December 2017 (EST)

So, about Super Mario Bros. Encyclopedia... The Super Mario 64 section calls it "Moneybag" (86), but the New Super Mario Bros. section calls it "Moneybags" (115). With or without it, I motion to change it to "Moneybags" since that was the version used in the New Super Mario Bros. Player's Guide and "Moneybag" is a genuine mistake on our end. LinkTheLefty (talk) 15:02, 24 October 2018 (EDT)

I agree to change it to Moneybags. MarioComix (talk) 20:17, 24 October 2018 (EDT)
That's also the same case we use for the Stars enemy, so I'm not opposed to to new title. Toadette icon CTTT.pngArchivistToadettefont.png(T|C) 08:58, 19 November 2018 (EST)
