Do we really need to mention "Them?" They're not poes, and only kinda-sorta look like poes. I could understand mentioning this in trivia, but giving them their own section? I'm deleting the sectiong and moving it to trivia. Onen 00:31, 4 August 2008 (UTC)

"Beta" Imp Poe
The video is very interesting, bit I'm pretty sure the Poe that's there isn't beta. There's really no difference between it and the current model, save for the blue glowy effect - same goes for the "Slugula," which is really just an extinguished torch slug. As the creator of the video stated in the video's comments, he didn't really do a lot of research before making the video and assumed, understandably, that the models in there were all from beta enemies because the folder they were located in was named "Beta." So what I'm wondering is, still note-worthy? If not, and we do end up removing the images from the Trivia sections of this and the Sluggula article, where should we mention the rest of those models?

The etymology of "Poe"
魄 (pò) in Chinese is pronounced the same, and refers to the spirit - which is left behind after an unnatural death (suicide, that kind of thing). It's what makes a zombie a zombie, in traditional Chinese zombie stories.
I would suggest this is the more likely etymology of the word. It is pronounced tama in Japanese, but just as an English speaker would recognise the Spanish "fantasma" as something ghostly by its sound, so too the Japanese with "pò".
Picture of a Hyrule Field Poe?
I'd like to request someone to take a picture of a Poe with a Y-shaped head and add it to the gallery. I don't think there's even a single picture of them on the internet yet. Dekler 14:15, 12 May 2013 (UTC)
