In case...{English Translation}

Shin evangelion (talkcontribs)

Would it be ok if I add the translated In Case... into the English section? and no I did not use google translate.

Astounding Beyond Belief (talkcontribs)

Where does the translation come from?

Shin evangelion (talkcontribs)

a youtube video I seen, let me go get the link real quick.

Meganulon(SP)

Shin evangelion (talkcontribs)

Sorry to bother you, ABB. But I have figured out what the Ultima parasites are and from chatting with other users, we have discovered that there Showa inspired Meganulon. And maybe also a reference to Shockirus as it was also said to be a parasite feeding on Godzilla in the 1984/85 film.

Astounding Beyond Belief (talkcontribs)

Their inspirations are plain enough, but we don't know what the show is calling them yet.

Mothra (SP)

Shin evangelion (talkcontribs)

So does this mean the Yellow Butterflies are Mothra or am I missing something from one of the episodes?

Astounding Beyond Belief (talkcontribs)

Unclear

Shin evangelion (talkcontribs)

Alright, Thank you ABB, The Reason why I asked is because I seen on Singular Point (series) Page as in the Monsters Category it shows Mothra with no parenthese's for (ending).

Astounding Beyond Belief (talkcontribs)

Yeah, I went and changed that

Shin evangelion (talkcontribs)

with the 3 sub-species being closely related to Kumonga and now has made me wonder if Kumonga evolved rapidly using Asexual reproduction and evolving in the same way as Godzilla (Sp), ending off with Ultima at the end of its name, The reason why im bringing this up is because it could be able to merge the Kumonga and the 3 nestmates into one page?

Les (talkcontribs)

They are not "sub-species" of Kumonga. They and Kumonga are apart of the same genus. There's no evolutionary hierarchy there, they are all on the same level. It's the same as a lion and a tiger being in the genus Panthera; one is not a sub-species of the other.

Astounding Beyond Belief (talkcontribs)

We'll weigh any further information the show or official materials provide us, but for now this is just speculation. Hanenga and Kamanga also complicate the idea of a clear progression. If Kamanga evolves into Hanenga, why lose the scythes only to get them back later? If Hananga evolves into Kamanga, why lose the wings only to get them back later?

Shin evangelion (talkcontribs)

unless, Kumonga branches off into two Evolutions Hanenga is one while the other is Kamanga then last one would be Kumonga Ultima, Kinda like some species have differences between Male and Female until reaching Adult stage. or it could also be determined by "Rank" or "Job" like an Ant Coloney, One is a Queen, the Others are Working or either Defender or Scavangers.

Denistyrant (talkcontribs)

So I just rewatched episode 12, and I feel like we have to add the height back to 100+ meters for the Ultima form, since later in the episode they confirm the target, that was 100 meters above the Tokyo Station is over 100 meters. So should I change the height back?

Les (talkcontribs)

I don't think it's remotely clear enough to come to a determination either way. A Singular Point book is coming out at the end of the month, we'll see if that gives stats.

Denistyrant (talkcontribs)

What is the book called?

Godzilla Final wars image gallery problem

Kaijuzill (talkcontribs)

beyond belief, something wrong has happened to Phoebe Price photo, can you please try and fix it

Astounding Beyond Belief (talkcontribs)

Done.

Kaijuzill (talkcontribs)

can I add more? There's more photos of Phoebe and Godzilla that I recently found on Google

Astounding Beyond Belief (talkcontribs)

We've been over this - one is enough

Kaijuzill (talkcontribs)

OK, just wanted to know

Kaijuzill (talkcontribs)

thanks

How do I make a Sandbox page?

TheCarlosfieldParadox (talkcontribs)

Oh thats easy...you make a page and move it/rename so it says "User:MechaniKongZilla/Sandbox/[Sandbox name]" under "User".

MechaniKongZilla (talkcontribs)

How do I make a page?

Astounding Beyond Belief (talkcontribs)

Search for the desired page name and you'll see a button to create it

Takusatsupedia Reference

TheCarlosfieldParadox (talkcontribs)

Hey fellow Admin! Do you mind if I use a little bit of info for the Godzilla/1954 page on the Tokusatsupedia, NO PLAGIARISM?

Astounding Beyond Belief (talkcontribs)

If you're going to change a couple of works and call it original work - yes, I would very much mind.

I'll be blunt: I view the Tokusatsu Wiki as a doomed vanity project, which is to say a typical splinter wiki. You cannot feasible cover a topic this broad from scratch with a handful of people. The logo is stolen, and the founder of the site seems fine with stealing our work too. Nobody seems able to explain what the Tokusatsu Wiki does that wikis already in existence (if not us, than Tokupedia) do not or could not.

TheCarlosfieldParadox (talkcontribs)

Oh...I just realized this now...crap I'm sorry I really wanted to just help out the wiki and become a real Admin.

Astounding Beyond Belief (talkcontribs)

I still get the impression that you're more interested in power and a cool title than the slow, careful work of editing.

TheCarlosfieldParadox (talkcontribs)

Noo! I don't care about the title! Did you see what I did without the reference on that wiki?

Astounding Beyond Belief (talkcontribs)

You asked to be an admin almost as soon as you joined the site, jumped to a site that was immediately willing to grant that request, and opened this topic by touting that title. So I very much think you do.

There are a lot of mistakes on your Godzilla/1954 page:

  • "Godzillasaurus" wasn't a thing until Godzilla vs. King Ghidorah; that origin only applies to a few versions of the character. The first Godzilla's species is not specified in the movie, nor is the reason he attacks Japan. Don't present your own speculation as fact.
  • Ishiro Honda was not the sole creator of Godzilla. Yes, he coauthored the script and directed the movie, but he didn't come up with the original idea (that was Tomoyuki Tanaka), write the first version of the story (that was Shigeru Kayama), or design the creature (that was Akira Watanabe and Teizo Toshimitsu).
  • The first Godzilla didn't fight Anguirus. That was the Godzilla who appears in the rest of the Showa movies.
  • Movie titles should be italicized and (mostly) capitalized. Toho's preferred title for the first Godzilla movie is just plain Godzilla; I don't think I've seen Gojira used outside of the Classic Media DVD and Blu-ray.
  • The atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki are not the only historical events Godzilla references; the firebombing of Tokyo and the Lucky Dragon No. 5 incident are others.

I don't mean to be harsh, but if editing wikis is something that interests you, research is essential. The bonus features on the Criterion Godzilla Blu-ray you own are very informative.

TheCarlosfieldParadox (talkcontribs)

Its ok, its just your job. I am new, but the page is not done yet so I will take your advice and redo it.

Monsterverse - Bagan

2
Shin evangelion (talkcontribs)

Sorry to bother you, but before Godzilla vs Kong was released and before Playmates revealed the figures, I thought that Bagan would have had a great chance for being in GVK, Because the Ghidorah head at the end of Kotm sparked many rumors like, Destroyah, Mecha-King Ghidorah or Biollante, The one that made the most sense to me, Was Bagan, Because in Super Godzilla, it was described that Bagan was made from Ghidorah cells. Poor Bagan, you will never see the light up day except for those 2 games and a cut out game.

Astounding Beyond Belief (talkcontribs)

At this point I think Bagan's chances of appearing in anything again are about the same as any other non-film Godzilla monster, i.e. virtually nil. It's like expecting the Hypno-Hustler to be the lead villain in the next Spider-Man movie.

King Kong (De Laurentiis) weight

2
MechaniKongZilla (talkcontribs)

Why don't you think that was a reliable source? It states Kong as 50 feet, just like his page.

Astounding Beyond Belief (talkcontribs)

Joke answer: The same page says a T-Rex could give Godzilla "a run for his money." Instantly disqualifying.

Real answer: This is a children's magazine published over 20 years after the De Laurentiis Kong came out with no connection to the film; there is no particular reason to think the weight stat it provides is official and not just something the author made up. (Of course, all of this is made up, but the source matters.) Both of the Toho Kong stats it gives are wrong as well.
