User:LinkTheLefty/List of Super Mario Bros. Encyclopedia mistakes and names from the Super Mario Wiki

From the Super Mario Wiki, the Mario encyclopedia


  • [44] Genkotsu is known as "Pipe Fist", which was a conjectural title from 2015 to 2018.
  • [55] Tornado is known as "Tweester" in the Super Mario Bros. 3 section, which was conflated by the wiki from 2006 to 2017. The same oddity exists in Prima Games' Playing with Power: Nintendo NES Classics.
  • [63] Fire P-Pakkun is known as "Fire Jumpin’ Piranha", which is based on the conjectural "Fire Jumping Piranha" title from 2015 to 2018.
  • [75/76] With the exception of "Fireball Boy" (F Boy), nearly every enemy name from Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins is directly lifted from the wiki titles, with macrons removed from romanizations where applicable. This includes "Be" and "Bomubomu", which went under the names B Fly and Bomubomu 1 2 3 in the Japanese version. A similar action was also done to unlocalized enemies from Zelda II: The Adventure of Link in Dark Horse's The Legend of Zelda: Arts & Artifacts. Additionally, "Ant" was a general term and "Bibi" had a name in Nintendo Power, leading both articles to be retitled in 2019.
  • [78] The Moneybag item is known as "Money Bag", which was an unsourced title from 2007 to 2017.
  • [85] In the Super Mario 64 section, the "Boss Bass" entry states that it is also known as "Bubba" in the description, which is not mentioned in the Japanese version. With current information, it is Cheep Chomp that is considered to have had the alternate name Bubba, with Boss Bass being a separate but similar enemy, although Cheep Chomp is referred to as Boss Bass in Yoshi's Island DS.
  • [86] The Moneybags enemy is known as "Moneybag" in the Super Mario 64 section only. This was the same mistake on the wiki from 2009 to 2018.
  • [92] Chair is known as "Killer Chair", which is a translation of an unconfirmed Japanese name styled after Killer Book (Bookend) and Killer Piano (Mad Piano). In the book, the latter two are listed among enemies, while the former is listed among items & obstacles. Additionally, it has a completely different name in the Japanese version of the book (Poltergeist).
  • [92] Keronpa Ball is known as "Kuromame", which is a romanization of an unconfirmed Japanese name used as the wiki title from 2011 to 2017. The Japanese version of the book uses the name Keronpa Ball, which is based on the enemy's appearance as Keronpa in Super Mario 64 DS.
  • [99] Huge Red Electrokoopa is known as "Electro-Koopa (green)", which was a conjectural title from 2015 to 2019.
  • [99] Swoopin' Stu is known as "Gooble", which is an unconfirmed name used by the wiki from 2015 to 2019.
  • [100] Winged Strollin' Stu is known as "Soarin’ Stu", which was a conjectural title from 2007 to 2017.
  • [101] The captain is known as "Pianta Captain", which was a conjectural title from 2007 to 2019.

  • [119] The face block is known as "Platform Block", which was an unsourced title from 2009 to 2019.

  • [126] Comet Tico is known as "Lumacomète", which was a French name used as the article title from 2012 to 2018 that was briefly changed in 2014 and 2015.
  • [127] Spoing is known as "Bouncing Scuttlebug" in the Super Mario Galaxy section only. This is a remnant of when Spoing and Sprangler were erroneously considered Scuttlebugs by the wiki, which was settled via a 2012 proposal that was mistakenly neglected until 2018.
  • [127] Skeletal Fish Guard is known as "Fish Bone". The wiki considered them the same thing despite different appearances and Japanese names until a 2018 proposal.
  • [128] Bat is known as "Swoop" in the Super Mario Galaxy section only. The wiki considered them the same thing despite different appearances and Japanese names (but with basis within internal data) from 2007 to 2017.
  • [127/159] Mini Wanwan is known as "Chibi Chomp". This is a localization of its alternate Japanese name (Chibi Wanwan) that was used as the wiki title from 2016 to 2017.

  • [128/161] Petapeta is known as "Starbag", which is the wiki's fan-translation of its apparent German name used as the article title from 2009 to 2017.
  • [128/161] Jump Beamer is known as "Sentry Beam", with the actual Sentry Beam known by its Japanese name "Laser Pod" in the Super Mario Galaxy section and the name "Mobile Sentry Beam"[160] in the Super Mario Galaxy 2 section. Additionally, Ball Beamer is known as "Bolt Beam"[126] and its description suggests that it is a derivative of the book's Sentry Beam, which is not mentioned in the Japanese version. This is all based on previous versions of the Sentry Beam article from 2010 to 2018, where the conjectural names "Mobile Sentry Beam" and "Bolt Sentry Beam" also appear initially.
  • [128/161] The names of Spiny Piranha Plant and its sequel derivative, Prickly Piranha Plant, are swapped. This mirrors a mistake on the wiki that went unnoticed from 2010 to 2019, when the Piranha Plant guidance from Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Ver. 2.0.0 used the correct names.
  • [136] Banandelion is known as "Fling Flower", which was a separate article using a conjectural title from 2011 to 2018.
