Talk:Puzzle Plank Galaxy
From the Super Mario Wiki
Because the mission's name is The Puzzling Picture Block does that mean that the Puzzling Picture Block is also the name of the puzzle planet, or not? The same thing happens with "Tall Trunk's Big Slide" and "The Magnificent Magma Sea". IGGY7735
- What you have to understand is that the names of the missions for particular galaxies often just refer to a specific area (ex: The Fiery Stronghold) or occasionally a task that must be accomplished (ex: Breaking into Bowser's Castle), and in the case of the former are therefore most likely not intended to represent the actual name for the area or planet in question. For instance, with the example above, "The Fiery Stronghold," the mission name obviously refers to the entirety of Bowser's Star Reactor, though for obvious reasons we do not call Bowser's Star Reactor "The Fiery Stronghold." The same is true with the level Bowser's Fortified Fortress and Bowser's Galaxy Generator. However, at the same time, this does not necessarily mean that the mission names are always misleading. For example, in the Beach Bowl Galaxy, the mission name Fast Foes on the Cyclone Stone refers to the secret planetoid in this galaxy which, without the mission name, would in fact not even have a name of its own. Another example would be Luigi in the Honeyhive Kingdom, which refers to the Honeyhive Galaxy by a different name (Honeyhive Kingdom), though this name is actually confirmed via an in-game conversation with a Bee in this galaxy. Therefore, the thing is, no two mission names are ever alike, and users must use discretion when naming planets based off of them. Although, if I had to hazard a guess in regard to your examples above, I would have to say that in my opinion, "Tall Trunk's Big Slide" would more likely be the actual name of that area/planet than would "The Magnificent Magma Sea," which is probably just there to describe what is encountered in the level (much like Sailing the Sandy Seas in the Slipsand Galaxy) or to direct the player to that specific part of the level.
