Tornado and Angry Spear-Mask[edit]

Question.svg This talk page or section has a conflict or a question that needs to be answered. Please try to help and resolve the issue by leaving a comment.

I recently noticed the Tornado and Angry Spear-Mask names have been labeled as conjectural titles, which makes having three pages for those enemies pointless. Moreover, even if those names were official, it makes no sense to have three pages, they really aren't three individual beings, the proof of this is that Wario can smash the ground to cycle between the three types of Spear-Masks, showing they are one and the same, so the three types can be perfectly described in one page. --BYLLANT Ak-Un.png 23:41, January 7, 2020 (EST)

Huh, makes me think of the Shy Guy colors in Yoshi's Story...anyways, if that is indeed the case, I must concur. What should make this one the "main" one, anyways? Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 23:53, January 7, 2020 (EST)
This has to be main page because it's the one that carries the basic name "Spear-Mask", we don't have to strictly state the yellow Spear-Mask is the "main" one but rather the lowest in the Spear-Mask rank, assuming it goes like yellow<blue<red. --BYLLANT Ak-Un.png 19:52, January 11, 2020 (EST)
You're not making sense, you treated them as basically equals above. How would they have different "rank?" Do they not all carry the basic name "Spear Mask?" Is the description not accompanied by the artwork on the page? Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 20:18, January 11, 2020 (EST)

I agree with merging the Tornado Spear-Mask and Angry Spear Mask with this page. The instruction manual makes no indication that the three are separate enemies. Spear-Mask is the only official name given in the manual, as the other two names are conjectural. The only differences between the three forms are their color, method of attacking, and number of coins dropped; all of this information can easily be included in the main Spear-Mask page. --Waddle D33 (talk) 23:40, October 6, 2020 (EDT)
