Ptooie Spiked Balls[edit]

Should the Spiked Balls that Ptooies shoot be mentioned on this article, or are the only Spiked Balls that are mentioned the ones that can roll along the ground? They look the same as the ones that Spikes throw in Super Mario Bros. 3 and Paper Mario: Color Splash, and the only difference is that they do not roll. --FlameChompNSMBW.pngTheFlameChomp (talk) 19:47, 27 March 2017 (EDT)

The Ptooie article has a link to Spiked Ball, so I don't see why not. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 19:49, 27 March 2017 (EDT)
Thanks, I'll add the information. --FlameChompNSMBW.pngTheFlameChomp (talk) 19:51, 27 March 2017 (EDT)


So here's a weird one: on the SmashWiki, Piranha Plant's Ptooie attack is known in the Japanese version as Shuringan, and in the Origins section, it's clarified that Shuringan is the Japanese name for the spiked balls used by Ptooies and Spikes, as another reference to the Jugemu tale (possibly due to the Spiked Ball resembling a Spiny Egg, which Japanese name is Paipo, also from the Jugemu tale). However, nowhere on our wiki is Shuringan listed. Has the Spiked Ball ever been called a Shuringan in the Japanese Mario games? Arend (talk) Arend (talk) 19:11, 30 January 2019 (EST)

This is something that's been unsourced trivia (and actually, it's even in the Super Mario Bros. 3 section of Encyclopedia Super Mario Bros., so it could have been fixed for quite a while). LinkTheLefty (talk) 19:23, 30 January 2019 (EST)
