Giant Bird?

Why did Hunchman change the name? I thought everybody here agreed to call it "Mocking Bird"--Sergiomonty 15:02, 8 January 2012 (UTC)

I believe that the title isn't conclusive enough for the bird being named as "Mocking Bird". That's why. --Sparkle.gifHarukaSparkle.gif 15:49, 8 January 2012 (UTC)
It was conclusive enough for me. The level is called 'To Bubblize a Mocking Bird', and the objective is to bubblize... a Mocking Bird. The fact that the name happens to contain a pun doesn't negate it in my view. 'Giant bird' doesn't make much sense as an alternative, as the bird is only a giant in his corrupt form. —Spiraldoor IconSpiralDoor.png 15:58, 8 January 2012 (UTC)
We needed to hear more opinions because it seems we are splitted. --Sparkle.gifHarukaSparkle.gif 19:04, 8 January 2012 (UTC)
The phrase "Mocking Bird" is the only official source that we have from the game; the game suggests us to simply call it like that. if it sounds ridiculous or not that's not our problem, but "Giant Bird" just sounds poorly made up. No offense--Sergiomonty 01:02, 9 January 2012 (UTC)
I don't find offensive but if we all arrived onto an agreement, regardless what it would be the final name for the bird, I wouldn't mind with anything. I guess you need to convince Hunch, because it was him to apparently named this creature as "giant bird". --Sparkle.gifHarukaSparkle.gif 19:29, 9 January 2012 (UTC)
I completely agre with Spiral. --iHeckler9Life.gif 07:31, 10 January 2012 (UTC)
I've changed my mind. I also remind that "Mocking Bird" is capitalized too. It is already 4 votes. --Sparkle.gifHarukaSparkle.gif 12:36, 10 January 2012 (UTC)
The name of the level is merely a refe rence to the book To Kill a Mockingbird, which is why I don't believe 'Mocking Bird' is meant to be the name of the boss. 'Giant bird' certainly wasn't the brightest initiative, but at least it doesn't take for given what could only be part of a pun. As concerns capitalisation, that's the case for every level so I don't find it particularly relevant to the current issue. Moreover, neither 'Giant bird', 'Mocking bird' are even 'Daisy' are specific enough to designate the corresponding characters. Because a boss is a daisy means we should call it that? Why not refer to them as 'guardians'? After all, that's what the bird is called in the textures: music guardian (more precisely 'Guardian - Music World' according to Electoon). —RRRGBAIcon8.pngRRRGBAIcon0.gifRRRGBAIcon1.png 18:49, 10 January 2012 (UTC)
Music guardian would sound fine to me. --Sparkle.gifHarukaSparkle.gif 20:09, 10 January 2012 (UTC)
I disagree. The guardian bird is the yellow one that you have to fight during the moskito level (check the files, that bird is called "guardian-musicworld" too); it should also be noted that the Mocking Bird is a king, not a guardian.What's wrong with calling it a Mocking Bird anyway? It's a pun? yeah, It's based on a Book? sure! but it's not impossible, the bird does actually look like a Mockingbird (a ugly UGLY mockingbird). We had to accept "Crabby Shellfish" for the Ocean Spider article until we found the real name, why wouldn't we do that with this one?--Sergiomonty 22:36, 10 January 2012 (UTC)

Gender?

Same as here --Carrot signature.png 21:25, 26 February 2018 (UTC)

I'm a bit confused about this too, as the French article says female, meaning both the English and French ones contradict each other. I'd assume they're male, since they're The Four Kings, whereas a female would likely be called a Queen. --Steo sig.png 18:15, 14 August 2019 (CEST)
