Talk:Pure Metal

From Zelda Wiki, the Zelda encyclopedia

Crimson, Azure, Aqua?

Okay, I can understand the red Pure Metal being called Crimsonine, since crimson is red.

I can understand the blue Pure Metal being called Azurine, since azure is blue.

But how in the world is the green Pure Metal aquanine? What does aqua have to do with green? Aqua is water! It would've been much more appropriate, and it would have made a lot more sense, to call it Verdantine, or something.

Anyone willing to explain to me the logic behind calling the green Pure Metal Aquanine?

Sorry for this five-month-late reply =P, but I can explain that. The prefix Aqua indeed means water, but it's also the name of a shade of color blue that overlaps with cyan and green, which justifies the Metal's name. I was thinking on putting something about that in the Trivia section when I last edited the article, but I feared someone would delete it for rendering it too trivial, so I put nothing there. --User:K2L/sig 19:56, 30 December 2010 (EST)
