Talk:Spiked Koopa

From the Super Mario Wiki, the Mario encyclopedia

Sooooooo... If it was named Koopa in NP, how do we know it's a "Bro.?" BLOC PARTIER.

Because his Japanese name includes "Bro." --Grandy02 14:44, 25 January 2010 (EST)

Not a Troopa[edit]

Can we remove this guy from "Koopa Troopas" now, since the "evidence" that it was a Troopa was disproven? -Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 4:30, 12 June 2017 (CT)

What evidence are you referring to? Hello, I'm Time Turner. 15:19, 2 August 2017 (EDT)
It previously was titled "Spiked Koopa Troopa" saying the name came from Nintendo Power, but then it was changed to "Spiked Pirate" with the source being the same. Since then, "Spiked Koopa" has also been added, so I'm not sure now. -Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 16:15, 2 August 2017 (CT)
It should be noted that Toge Bros. clearly points it to being a member of the Hammer Bros. family, whereas Pirate Koopa can refer to a type of Koopa or Koopa Troopa; if the former, there's no contradiction. LinkTheLefty (talk) 17:21, 2 August 2017 (EDT)
I know. I personally despise it when people just call Koopa Troopas "Koopas," since there are so many other types. I call them "Troopas," but the only media to do so were the DiC cartoons. I personally reserve "Koopa" to refer to all of the Turtle Tribe, or when used specifically, to refer to Bowser's subspecies (which of course has no official name; the closest thing to it is "Royal Koopa," and Walkazo calls them "Dragon Koopas" as I learned recently), but given so many other Troopas are just called "Koopas," who knows regarding this?

I say let's see if the source explicitly called it a Koopa Troopa; if not, it's safe enough to consider a Bro. LinkTheLefty (talk) 21:33, 2 August 2017 (EDT)
This is the source. Hello, I'm Time Turner. 21:38, 2 August 2017 (EDT)
Well, then he isn't. That settles that. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 20:42, 2 August 2017 (CT)
