Nope, Mean Woody was described by a character as the meaner version of Woody, but that's as official as it gets.Knife (talk) 21:47, 21 June 2007 (EDT)

I could swear he's described in-game as 'Evil Woody'. Vent (talk) 11:01, 21 August 2012 (EDT)

I pretty much find evil more appropriate instead of Mean. --APA TKB 250px-197Umbreon.png 16:35, 22 April 2013 (EDT)
Evil doesn't seem to really fit with Mario, 'Mean' is more appropriate for a children's game Yoshi876 (talk)

Then why is he called 'Evil' Woody in official sources? Vent (talk) 16:13, 31 December 2013 (EST)

What official source? Yoshi876 (talk)
Try the official Japanese site. The section for Woody Woods calls him Warukio (a combination of Waru and Kinokio, Woody's Japanese name), and says this about him (loose translation):

The counterpart to Kinokio, he forces you to go backwards and takes away your coins. --Tailikku1 (talk) 23:08, 9 September 2014 (EDT)


Why is this at a conjectural title if we have an official Japanese name? Binarystep (talk) 20:07, 3 May 2015 (EDT)

The name was added by Tailikku, who has a history of adding Japanese names from the Japanese Wikipedia despite there being no sources, and this seems to be no exception. Hello, I'm Time Turner.
