amiibo Nickname Discussion Empty amiibo Nickname Discussion

May 30th 2015, 11:38 pm
Just thought I'd start a discussion on amiibo nicknames. Here are some I prepared earlier...

Mario - "Jumpman" (his original name in the arcade classic Donkey Kong)
Yoshi - "Koopasaur" (the character Yoshi in Super Mario World was originally going to be a type of Koopa)
Donkey Kong - "Super Kong" (Donkey Kong Country Returns' help feature who was absent in the sequel...why, Nintendo?!)
Link - "Ravio" (a helpful ally in The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds)
Kirby - "Pinky" (a nod to my favourite Nintendo webcomic, Brawl in the Family)
Pikachu - "Redachu" (a reference to the fan name for Ash Ketchum's Pikachu form, Ashachu)
Ness - "Super Ness" (Ness = NES, Super Ness = Super NES)
-
Samus - "Dark Samus" (based on Dark Samus from Metroid Prime 2: Corruption)

Zelda - "Tetra" (Link's companion in two Zelda games)
Ganondorf - "Vaati" (the evil Wind Mage from the Four Sword portion of the timeline)
Marth - "Mars" (similar to Marth's pre-Romanised Japanese name)
Falco - "Sunny" (Falco's name, when written as "Haruko", can mean "Child of Sunshine"; can also be taken as ironic since Falco's personality is anything but sunny)
-
Mr. Game & Watch - "Game Boy" (named after the Game & Watch's successor)

Meta Knight - "Galacta" (a reference to Galacta Knight from Kirby Super Star Ultra)
King Dedede - "Triple-D" (Escargoon's nickname for him in Kirby: Right Back at Ya!)
Ike - "Aiku" (similar to how "Ike" would be written in Romaji)
Wario - "Bad Mario" (Wario is a portmanteau of "waru", meaning "bad", and Mario)
-
Olimar - "Zed" (Zed...as in a palette-swapped Alph. Read Crystals of Silveria. It's pretty alright.)

Charizard - "Lizardon" (Charizard's Japanese name)
Greninja - "Amphinobi" (Greninja's French name)
Robin - "Glenn" (a modified version of the word "green"; also a male name of Scottish origin, reflecting my roots)
Dark Pit - "Pittoo" (Lady Palutena came up with this nickname for Dark Pit in Kid Icarus: Uprising, and Pit used it every chance he got...which ticked off Pittoo to no end! Razz)
-
Villager - "Townie" (because "City-Slicker" doesn't fit)

Sonic - "Needlemaüs" (a reference to SEGA's Project Needlemouse, aka Sonic Lost World, it has a German flavour, referencing the pause screen jump exploit in Sonic Boom, which was parodied in the Sonic Boom cartoon...plus "Needlemaüs" fits whereas "Needlemouse" doesn't)
-
PAC-MAN - "Buster" (well, he busts ghosts, so...um...who would you like to phone?)
-
Fox - "James" (after Fox McCloud's father)
Pit - "Hermes" (a reference to Hermes, the messenger of Zeus in Greek lore)

Which nicknames have you given your amiibo? Smile

On Wednesday 1st February 2013, a little series named Crystals of Silveria made its “official” début right here on WiiWareWave.

Now, ten years on, the adventures of Zed Starmute and the Crystalbound are on the verge of their TENTH ANNIVERSARY!

The series may have been quietly shelved since then (creative burnout FTL), but the original 17-episode season is complete and remastered, and available to read in its entirety here.

There’s even a one-shot OVA-styled special that continues the story, as well as serving to “tide over” fans during the interim into later, mostly-on-hiatus storylines.

Either way, it’s PARTY FESTIVAL TIME! WOO! victory
