There is another article for this same creature- Spiderock. Which is the real name? Honestly, there are a few instances where there are multiple articles for the same beast. Shell Spider and Hardhat Beetle- as well as a section of Octogon- being another example. Which name(s) are correct so I know what to keep and what to throw out?

To be honest it's EXTREMELY difficult to find out which names are accurate. The best first step is to suggest that the two duplicate articles be merged using {{Merge|article name on each page. I'll try and dig out the correct names :) --Adam 05:37, 7 October 2007 (EDT)
Ah, that makes sense. Anyways, just wanted to point out we have multiple articles on the same topics. Dinosaur bob 12:27, 7 October 2007 (EDT)

Merge With Octorok

Despite having somewhat difrent exteriors, Slaroks are basically the Blue Octoroks of A Link to the Past, A Link Between Worlds, and Tri Force Heroes. They act the same as normal Octoroks and can be defeated useing the same methods. Because of the aforementioned similarities with Octoroks, as well as the fact this is a relatively short article, I sugest we move this page to the Octorok page.

No. Slaroks may behave identically to Octoroks, but they are by no means the same enemy. The Dark World and Lorule have plenty of counterparts to Hyrulean enemies (such as the Soldiers and Taros), but they're still distinctively different no matter how alike they are. Besides, we prefer to split different varieties of enemies. I also do not see how this is a relatively short article - it's quite big compared to many other minor enemy pages. - Midoro (T C) 04:28, 25 October 2016 (UTC)
