Was poking around the maintenance tab and noticed this... Why hasn't it been merged into Lizard-Head Kremling already? That article contains much of the same information with much better quality and presentation. --ExdeathIcon.png Lord G. matters. ExdeathIcon.png 00:46, October 1, 2019 (EDT)

Hell, I'll merge them myself if there's no objections. --ExdeathIcon.png Lord G. matters. ExdeathIcon.png 00:47, October 1, 2019 (EDT)
It was made probably because when you look at the boss you don't exactly think "Hmm that looks more lizard-like than other Kremlings," and as such they didn't realize that that was what that link was for. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 01:17, October 1, 2019 (EDT)
I can guess at why it was written, my question is one of why the idea of merging the two has been left untouched for so long - I'm not seeing any real reason not to go through with it. Now as for the choice of name... --ExdeathIcon.png Lord G. matters. ExdeathIcon.png 01:22, October 1, 2019 (EDT)
Hmmm... Which one to merge with is an issue. --SMW2yoshi.gif FanOfYoshi 02:02, October 1, 2019 (EDT)
"So long?" The template was put on there like yesterday lol Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 04:27, October 1, 2019 (EDT)
Three days ago, as it turns out but you're right. Dunno why it felt like it was here longer... --ExdeathIcon.png Lord G. matters. ExdeathIcon.png 04:39, October 1, 2019 (EDT)
Anyway: Personally leaning towards "Robot Kritter Head", or maybe "Robo-Kritter Head" or something similar. I'll probably take a more informal vote once we reach a significant enough agreement that the pages need to be merged to begin with, and then proceed from there into a proposal. --ExdeathIcon.png Lord G. matters.

I think both should be merged too, because from what I can see, both "Robot Kremling Head", and "Lizard-Head Kremling" talk about the exact same boss. As for the name, I think "Robot Kremling Head" fits more than "Lizard-Head Kremling", since the boss is a robotic Kremling head, and not a lizard head Kremling (Kremlings are already lizards, so the name feels redundant and doesn't really tell us that, yknow, it's a robot head...) Counterpoint: We could always just check how it's named in the data of the game, and then call it that on the wiki, kinda like how the Uckykong's article is named like that due to the internal name. --Metalex123 (talk) 17:57, October 29, 2019 (EDT)
Yeah, there's absolutely no reason not to merge these, it's the exact same subject. I'd say merge it into Lizard-Head Kremling, since that page was here long before Robot Kremling Head - over 9 years, in fact. --MK8DX Waluigi Icon.png Too Bad! Waluigi Time! 18:00, October 29, 2019 (EDT)
Although both names are conjectural names, so I think it would be logical for the merged page to be called "Robot Kremling Head", since it describes the boss better than "Lizard-Head Kremling", which only tells us that it's a Kremling that is a lizard head (which makes no sense cause Kremlings are already lizards, so it feels redundant)... Or we could always check what's the internal name, so we have a more official name :p --Metalex123 (talk) 18:42, October 29, 2019 (EDT)
I don't think the name really matters in this case, we can easily rename it to whatever would be appropriate after the merge anyway. --MK8DX Waluigi Icon.png Too Bad! Waluigi Time! 18:50, October 29, 2019 (EDT)
Yeah that's basically what I meant. The final name of the merged article should be "Robot Kremling Head", but it would make sense to merge the Robot Kremling Head content into the Lizard-Head Kremling page. We could just rename it after the merging. --Metalex123 (talk) 19:01, October 29, 2019 (EDT)
