Rename?

In the game data this object is known as "Hoodlum Knight". Should we rename the article? Where does the current name come from? I should point out that not all names in the RHR data seem to match what Rayman 3 uses. Hoodstormers are named "Flyer" and Hoodbooms "Hoodlum Bomber" for example. --Carrot signature.png 13:11, 9 November 2020 (CET)

'Armed Spinneroo' is just a descriptive name which was chosen in the absence of an official one (until now), therefore it might make sense to rename the page to 'Hoodlum Knight', but it's probably worth checking with boombo first since he adopted a different convention on the French wiki, calling it just a Spinneroo. As for the other two, they're quite obviously the same Hoodlums so we can mention the additional names in their respective articles or maybe just ignore them since they were never meant to be official and the Hoodlums already have names anyway. —RRRGBAIcon8.pngRRRGBAIcon0.gifRRRGBAIcon1.png 17:34, 10 November 2020 (CET)
Yeah, I chose a less descriptive name for the French wiki, like for the Hoodboomers and the Grim Keepers of Rayman 3 on Game Boy Advance.
Since game data are official sources, "Hoodlum Knight" should be used instead of "Armed Spinneroo". Plus, it would be coherent with this dialogue in the Heart of the World I completely forgotten:
RAYMAN: This land used to be the domain of the Teensies, now it's overrun by armored Hoodlums.
MURPFY: Be very careful Rayman. André has unleashed a horde of his most dangerous knights!
The article will just have to precise these Hoodlum Knights look like Spinneroos, but they aren't.
"Flyer" and "Hoodlum Bomber" can be mentioned in the articles, although they don't reveal anything new for these enemies. --Boomboleros7 18:21, 10 November 2020 (CET)
