Talk:Wizzrobe

Name

Wasn't it "wizzrobe?"--Dreyfus 14:43, 18 November 2006 (CST)

That what I have always called it. It's possible that later games changed the spelling. If nothing else, we could make a "Wizzrobe" article that redirects to this one. --Yumil 01:16, 19 November 2006 (CST)
I'll do that.--Dreyfus 20:17, 21 November 2006 (CST)

I'm really confused about the naming (Wizrobe vs Wizzrobe); zelda.com clearly names them Wizrobe (backed up by the screenshot from MM), but I'm 99% certian that the figurines in both TMC and TWW name them Wizzrobe... Wikipedia's article is titled Wizzrobe, and makes a point of saying that the ONLY instance of Wizrobe is when it was "mis-spelled" in MM. Is there any official in-game or official printed game manual confirmation of the name in any game other that MM, TMC and TWW? --Adam 14:27, 14 June 2007 (PDT)

TLOZ, TMC and TWW all call it wizzrobe. ONly MM says wizrobe. Wizzrobe wins. IfIHaveTo 14:11, 1 December 2007 (EST)

OoA and OoS

I'm not entirely sure, as I do not own the games, abliet having beaten both by borrowing them from a friend, but wasn't the OoA and OoS Wizzrobe, much like many of the other enemies, exactly the same as the ones in Link's Awakening (which I do own)?--Magnus orion 22:54, 13 March 2008 (EDT)

No Minish Cap Section?

They're in there - you even have the animated sprites in the gallery at the end. Doesn't anyone know anything about them? I can't write it I'm afraid, I've not seen them in the game yet. ~ GKANG (Ta Co Zu) 10:27, 6 March 2009 (UTC)

Misquoted MC Figurines

I know that the quote for the ice wizzrobe figurine is wrong because they accidentally forgot to remove the "hit them with your fire rod" line in the game, and this line is absent in the quote. Can someone correct this with the TRUE quote?Justin(Talk) 23:41, 1 October 2009 (UTC)

Spirit Tracks?

I do not own spirit tracks (or a DS for that matter), but are they present in Spirit Tracks? Or is spirit tracks the only game (excluding Twilight Princess) they are missing? -- կրակ (խոսել) -- 21:15, 28 February 2010 (UTC)

Wizzrobes do not appear in Spirit Tracks. Note that they were missing in Ocarina of Time as well, however. Ganondorfdude11 04:24, 1 March 2010 (UTC)

Wizzars are not Wizzrobes

Even though they are extremely similar in the way they attack, the Wizzar's appearence in the artwork clearly shows, that the Wizzrobe and the Wizzar looks extremely different. Before you argue that the "The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker" Wizzrobe looks extremely different also, let me remind you that these enemies do not behave exactly the same, and don't have the same names (save for the English Manual, that translated it incorrectly) I demand they have a seperate page for the Wizzar, as we can't categorize the Wizzar in the "Enemies in Zelda II- The Adventure of Link" catagory, as it is currently part of the Wizzrobe page, and Wizzrobe's did not appear in Zelda II- The Adventure of Link. Tharthan 22:00, 14 March 2010 (UTC)

Wizrobe is not a separate article from Wizzrobe Dynalfos and Dinolfos are also not separate articles. Variations in spelling don't mean that these are different enemies. Note that the wiki styles guidelines indicate that we should use the English names because this wiki is in English. The translation hiccup can be noted in trivia or something. Ganondorfdude11 23:52, 15 March 2010 (UTC)
Wizzar is not an alternate spelling however, its a completely different Japanese name. Also, I am not sure they are ever called Wizzrobes in any English media (like the article suggests at the moment). Nintendo Power simply called them Wizards (with a capital letter). Note that Nintendo Power's names were all otherwise accurate and are the ones we use since the manual does not cover the vast majority of enemies. So while they are very similar to Wizzrobes, they are not the same, much like Mago is also not a Wizzrobe, and in the same way that an Ache is not a Keese. On the other hand, the guide for Zelda II specifically refers to Carock as a type of Wizzrobe, implying that Wizards are also a type of Wizzrobe, even though they are never called such as far as I can tell. I would personally consider them a very similar but technically different species, akin to how a Iron Knuckle is (or was, before they used axes) essentially the same enemy as a Darknut, or how a Boko Baba is basically a Deku Baba.

Wind Waker Wizzrobes

Is there actually any proof that they are wearing masks? If the Zora supposedly evolved into the Rito, then there would be no reason why the Wizzrobes could not also evolve to be bird-like. Vuvuzela2010 17:53, 25 January 2011 (EST)

True. It looks more like their real face to me. I edited the page accordingly. But remember, Zelda has no official storyline, and we kind of like to keep theories that relate to the existence of a timeline out of the articles. So if the Wizzrobes suddenly become birds, it's not because they evolved. It's because Nintendo felt like it. ;)
Good job spotting that, though! — Hylian King [*] 19:11, 25 January 2011 (EST)

Similarity

I've always thought that the Wizzrobes look very similar to the Black Mage from Final Fantasy... I saw no mention of it in the article, so I was wondering if anyone else noticed that? Startimer 12:59, 5 March 2011 (EST)

I see the similarity. I went ahead and mentioned it in the Trivia section of the article (that's where that kind of information belongs, by the way). Good spot! Welcome to the Wiki, by the way. You're off to a good start. ;) — Hylian King [*] 15:40, 5 March 2011 (EST)

Info goes... where?

I was reading through the page and noticed that the info for the LoZ and aLttP manuals are placed at the top, even though the MM and tWW sections have the info (Tatl and Tingle's comments) in their respective sections. Which one is better to use? —Darkness(Talk) 22:04, 26 November 2012 (UTC)

Wizzrobe (Boss)

Should the boss Wizzrobe from The Wind Waker get it's own page? I mean it is a mini-boss and has a seprate figurine. Gopherdude12 (talk) 00:17, 6 December 2016 (UTC)

Not only from TWW, but all iterations of mini-boss Wizzrobes as well. - TonyT S C 13:39, 9 December 2016 (UTC)

Header Image?

Shouldn't another version of Wizzrobe appear as the header image? The Majora's Mask design for Wizzrobe was just one off, while the shrouded, and bird wizzrobes appear in more games. Delsait (talk) 04:29, 14 December 2016 (UTC)

The intention with the infobox is that they are supposed to show a picture of the subject's most recent appearance. That would be Tri Force Heroes actually. The infobox obviously hasn't been updated to reflect that yet. - Midoro (T C) 04:55, 14 December 2016 (UTC)
I'd count the Triforce Heroes design as the shrouded Wizzrobe design as its essentially a 3D version of the Link to the Past Wizzrobe design. Do you want to use the 3DS model, or Link to the Past artwork for the header? Delsait (talk)
The artwork in question is only relevant to ALttP. A model from TFH would have to be used. - Midoro (T C) 07:36, 14 December 2016 (UTC)

Breath of the Wild

Wizzrobes have officially made an appearance. Should this be added? http://i.imgur.com/FXArWgi.gifv (Not the picture, Just the information.) Mosaica (talk) 01:06, 25 February 2017 (UTC)

Fire and Ice Wizzrobes

Should the Fire and Ice variants of Wizzrobes (And the Electric ones from BotW) get there own pages, I feel they should, especially if the Spear Moblin, an enemy identical to the regular Moblins in everyway but name have there own page. Madmoblin (talk) 03:44, 10 March 2017 (UTC)
