Would it not be better to use more descriptive, and less made-up names for the bosses? For example, "Dr. Robotnik's Mine Machine" should be called "Star Light Zone boss". The current names seem slightly childish to me. - Hivebrain 00:09, 5 September 2006 (CDT)

The names originate from Western strategy guides, so make of that what you will as "made-up," though semi-official. Whatever. Using "Star Light Zone boss" would be more accurate anyways. -Scarred Sun 14:09, 6 September 2006 (CDT)

Actually, coming back to this same name discussion, would it be more appropriate to stick with the Blahblah Zone Boss as a standard, or in the case of Japanese names like Drill Eggman (ドリルエッグマン) for Emerald Hill Zone Boss and just use the Boss standard in absence of a formal name? Conversely, would it be better just to stick that on those bosses' pages? - Scarred Sun 16:58, 28 July 2007 (CDT)

I'd only use those sort of names if they come from the instruction manual. - Hivebrain 17:34, 28 July 2007 (CDT)
Yeah, just went through the JP manual there and they aren't actually listed. Scratch that. - Scarred Sun 18:09, 28 July 2007 (CDT)

"The Hedgehog"

Sonic 1 and Sonic 2 are listed as "Sonic the Hedgehog" and "Sonic the Hedgehog 2", but Sonic 3 is listed as Sonic 3. This doesn't seem consistent to me. But I won't rename pages without consensous. Nineko 03:36, 19 February 2009 (CST)
