Mr eel?[edit]

Where has it been confirmed that the snorkel snake is a mr eel? -184.56.76.66 09:27, 19 July 2018 (EDT)

SnorkelSnake.PNGMrEel.png The two characters look completely different...? Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 09:29, 19 July 2018 (EDT)
Exactly. Except in the infobox on the page, it says snorkel snake is a type of mr eel. If this is not true, it should be removed. -184.56.76.66 09:32, 19 July 2018 (EDT)
Oh, I see what you mean. I don't know the game too well, so maybe someone that does knows of a connection? If not, it should be removed. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 09:47, 19 July 2018 (EDT)
The reason for this is because of Mr. Eel's name from a Japanese Shogakukan guide basically calling it a little Snorkel Snake. There's only one Snorkel Snake in the game and it's invincible whereas Mr. Eel first appears earlier and is semi-common in two other stages, but if you'd like to change Mr. Eel to a derived species of Snorkel Snake, go ahead.
