Putrid Piranha[edit]

I'd like anyone who can to get the Shogakukan guide for this game so we can get a name for this enemy in Japanese, and see how it compares to Putrid Piranha. If it's the same, a merge may be in order. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 00:25, 27 October 2017 (EDT)

There is such a thing as being overzealous with merging, and one name from one guide should not be the deciding factor. Hello, I'm Time Turner. 01:06, 27 October 2017 (EDT)
What's less viable about this (if the JP name is the same) that two completely-different species of moles with different appearances and official names? Besides, The original Putrid Piranhas were just large, forward-facing regular-colored Piranhas. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 01:14, 27 October 2017 (EDT)
That situation is more complex than you're making it seem, and using it to justify this is shaky at best. Hello, I'm Time Turner. 01:30, 27 October 2017 (EDT)
All I see is a lot of arbitrary bases. Either way, that's not the point of this discussion; the point is that we need to find out what this thing's Japanese name is, so a proposal can potentially be made if they happen to be the same. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 01:32, 27 October 2017 (EDT)
Considering how your first comment concludes that merging the pages may be necessary, I don't see how it isn't relevant. Hello, I'm Time Turner. 01:36, 27 October 2017 (EDT)
I'm saying we'll cross that bridge when we get to it. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 01:37, 27 October 2017 (EDT)
And see, now we can see they have different names. So there won't be a proposal. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 22:35, 30 October 2017 (EDT)
