Conjectural name[edit]

It is written that "Big Ball" is a conjectural name, but it's also noted that it comes from a Japanese guide. I'd like to replace {{conjecture}} per {{anotherlanguage}}, but I'm not quite sure that "Big Ball" is a Japanese name. Is it a translation of the official name?

No official name was given in the guide: only a descriptor (which isn't a proper name). The translation is from another language, but the name is still conjectural so it gets the template. If anyone wanted to see the scan I'll provide it upon request.

Ok I got it. I don't need the scan, I trust you :)

Rename[edit]

Should this article be renamed to Ōkina Ball? Because the Japanese guide says that this enemy is that. --24.188.22.145 09:48, August 13, 2019 (EDT)

If hotaru counts, then this probably should too. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 12:17, August 13, 2019 (EDT)
Probably. --Toasty.jpg FanOfYoshi NSMB - Splunkin Model.png 14:57, August 14, 2019 (EDT)
I found a name in page 16 of the Warioland 4 book: "The next trick she used was a Teddy Bear in a glowing ball." Note that "Teddy Bear" is also used in page 52 for Aerodent's description, but I feel this is more of a name than the current one. LinkTheLefty (talk) 18:30, July 1, 2020 (EDT)
