Name[edit]

Who in the heck decided on the name for this article? This IS Princess Chocola! Vent (talk) 15:21, 16 December 2012 (EST)

I did. And I am aware that this character is one and the same as Princess Shokora. Same with the Black Cat. But we needed a name for this particular form. If you can think of a berrer name, go ahead and suggest. But otherwise, this is not being merged. A Talk Page Proposal on Talk:Black Cat already tried that.

Why not something sensible and easy to find, like "Princess Chocola (Shadow Form)" or "Princess Chocola (Cursed Form)"? "Princess Game & Watch" sounds like a bad fan character. Vent (talk) 23:42, 18 February 2013 (EST)

We don't usually have an identifier title for conjectural names. Also the Black Cat could also be considered a cursed/shadow form of the princess. So I don't agree with your suggestions for the new title.

They're BOTH cursed forms of the princess! Neither one is normal! And since it's clear they're both Princess Chocola, why WOULDN'T you put her name in their respective titles? Vent (talk) 13:26, 19 February 2013 (EST)

Rename To Item Shopkeeper[edit]

Princess Game & Watch doesn't make any sense, the name Item Shopkeeper is better.

Support[edit]

  1. Megadardery (talk) Per Me, conjectural names should be as simple as possible
  2. Glowsquid (talk) - current name is horrible.
  3. YoshiKong (talk) – At the fault of my horrible imagination: per proposal.
  4. GBAToad (talk) Per proposal.
  5. Randombob-omb4761 (talk) Per Glowsquid.
  6. Scr7 (talk) Better name
  7. World10 (talk) Per all.
  8. UltraMario3000 (talk) Per all.
  9. LeftyGreenMario (talk) Such a cheesy name. Please rename.
  10. Yoshi876 (talk) Per all.
  11. Icemario11 (talk) Per all.
  12. Walkazo (talk) - Plain "Shopkeeper" would be better, but this would still be an improvement.
  13. Super Mario Bros. (talk) – Per all, especially Megadardery and Walkazo. If the European website also describes the character as just "shopkeeper" as YoshiKong described in the comments section, it would probably be better to move it there.

Oppose[edit]

Comments[edit]

On the European website, it's simply described as "shopkeeper", but it's not a proper noun.

It may not be a proper noun, but it sure as heck sounds less retarded than "Princess Game & Watch". Vent (talk) 22:38, 18 November 2013 (EST)
