Shouldn't their plural form be Neckies instead of Neckys? - Cobold (talk · contribs) 15:41, 2 August 2007 (EDT)

I Google-searched it, and there were twice as many hits for "Neckys" than "Neckies"; but there was nothing official going either way, just FAQs and things. Since "ies" is the grammatically correct pluralization of "y", I think we should go with that until further notice. - Walkazo 15:10, 13 October 2008 (EDT)


Okay, only Mini-Neckies appear in the DK swinging part of the series, however this article has the exact same info, also the Neckys in DK King of Swing and Jungle Climber look alot like minineckies and even have the same attack patterns in their first appearence Mr. Guy the GuyPickle.png Talk!E

Doesn't Necky sound like the name "Becky"? - Chris Helper

Buzzards page[edit]

Now that they have a species name, shouldn't the Buzzards from DK64 (the birds that looked like Neckies) have their own page (or just a species page)? It would be nice for them to get a page dedicated to them, instead of having to share the Neckies's page... --Metalex123 (talk) 20:33, 1 September 2017 (EDT)

They're Neckies. The Kritters were called Kremlings according to the same source. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 19:36, 1 September 2017 (CT)
But they should still have a page, since every other DK64 enemies have a page for themselves. --Metalex123 (talk) 21:31, 1 September 2017 (EDT)
Kritter, Klump, Gnawty, Zinger, Puftup, Shuri, Kroc, Klaptrap, Klobber, Krash, Kaboom.....yeah what you just said isn't true. And the Neckies in this game are hardly even enemies, one's a racer and the other's a glorified moving target that only appears once. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 23:41, 1 September 2017 (CT)
Um... Yes, every enemies & characters from DK64 do have a page for themselves (except recolors): Book, Oyster, Ruler, Beanstalk, Beetle, Owl, etc. And what's wrong with having a page for characters you race in DK64? The Seal, Owl, Rabbit, Beetle & Mini Car all have pages, so why not the Necky/Buzzard? --Metalex123 (talk) 16:31, 2 September 2017 (EDT)
I understand why the racer should have its own page, but what you said initially sounded like you wanted both to be split off into the same "Buzzard" page. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 15:49, 2 September 2017 (CT)
Oh, sorry for the confusion then... Well, why not have a page for the racer Necky/Buzzard, while the enemy one stays on this page? What do you think of this idea? (Oh and I guess we should add the Buzzard name somewhere on the Necky page, since it's an official name...) --Metalex123 (talk) 17:18, 2 September 2017 (EDT)
That makes sense, but the Buzzard name is on the Necky page, under the DK64 section :\ Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 16:46, 2 September 2017 (CT)
Whoops, I hadn't noticed that... Welp, I'll try making a page for the racer... Should I call it "Necky (character)" or "Buzzard (character)"? --Metalex123 (talk) 17:56, 2 September 2017 (EDT)
