Name[edit]

This name is, as it stands, conjectural. This character is consistently called "the professor," in lowercase, in-game. Should we rename this page to just "professor" or go for an internal filename? PMCS Mustard Cafe Sign.png Scrooge200 (talk) 18:27, March 15, 2020 (EDT)

I'd be partial to "Professor (Toad)" since I feel it can be a disambiguation page instead, but for reference, it seems like the filenames are KNP_Prof.bfres.lz (model) and KNP_Prof.Yellow.bfres.lz (textures), unless I'm mistaken. LinkTheLefty (talk) 12:08, March 16, 2020 (EDT)
"Professor" redirects to Byleth at the moment, for some reason. I would prefer not to use an identifier since there's no other character simply called "professor," but "Professor (Toad)" might work. Anything is better than this conjectural name. PMCS Mustard Cafe Sign.png Scrooge200 (talk) 23:54, March 16, 2020 (EDT)
It's pretty common as a generic title, though; for example, Kolorado and Frankly are referred to as "Professor" in a few lines, and I'd be surprised if there aren't more instances of scientist characters nicknamed as such throughout the franchise history, which is why I say the main article may work better as a disambiguation. I do agree that the "Toad Professor" should be moved regardless. If we go the filename route, would "Prof. Kinopio" or the "Kinopio Professor" be better?

"Prof" is used in text data too, so I'd prefer that. PMCS Mustard Cafe Sign.png Scrooge200 (talk) 19:06, May 19, 2020 (EDT)
