This page needs to be organized

I recently slightly reorganized this page in what I thought what was this pages going idea (i.e. that the last word in a name like Big Poe is what mattered) however it was undone so that Phantom Zant came before Watcher. The problem is phantom zant come after things like Rupee Wrath, Shadow and Them. Each of those comes before P but is still here. Also Big Poe and Imp Poe are out of order here to so which is it do we go with the last word or the first? If someone could explain this to me it would be a huge help. --Heroofstuff 17:44, 21 March 2012 (EDT)

Sorry, I had no idea the template was unorganized to begin with. I updated it to use the nav template and separated Poes from the main section of ghosts, seeing how many variations there are. This should clear up the ordering issue. — Abdullah [T] [C] [S]  06:44, 22 March 2012 (EDT)

Removed Watcher

As I have brought up on the Talk page for Watcher, there is nothing in-game to suggest they are undead, ghosts, or anything Poe-related. It appears to have originally been added to the template from before the games came out, so it was based on conjecture at the time. I don't think they're any more "ghosts" than the Guardians are, since they're both found only in the Silent Realms and are designed per their purpose. That they are similar to Poes is most likely a coincidence or an intentional visual reference, but that's it. --KingStarscream 13:24, 31 May 2013 (UTC)

Hmm... Maybe it would be better if we kept Watchers in the Template. They are still very ghost-like enemies after all. Maybe we should change the heading at the top of the Template so that it reads something along the lines of "Ghost and Spirit-like enemies". That way we'd be able to incorporate enemies such as Watchers and Babusus and Phantom Zant (none of which have been called ghosts) in the Template without stating that they are undead. This could also allow us to include other enemies such as the Shadow Nightmares. Dannyboy601Talk 14:46, 31 May 2013 (UTC)
I agree. The "Undead" category should also be removed from the template. They should be added to each page individually when applicable (as is already the case for most pages anyway). As for the heading... "Ghostly Enemies", perhaps? — Hylian King [*] 21:08, 31 May 2013 (UTC)
