Gilgamesh: Enough expository banter!
This talk page is used for discussing improvements to the page "Bestiary (Final Fantasy XV)". It is not the place for general discussion or sharing stories about the topic of this article.

This page is missing a few categories, like Niflheim, Astrals, and Daemons. Anyone able to add them?-- 02:28, September 7, 2017 (UTC)

Just had to do Costlemark Tower menace dungeon to get the last Daemons - finished now. Until hopefully they add the dlc enemies. DanC07 (talk) 21:28, September 15, 2017 (UTC)

Bestiary entries size/weightsEdit

In Japanese they use metric units (the game binds units of measurement to language, so other European languages also get metric, but not me. I hate this!). So naturally I expect the metric were the original measurements, and the US imperial are just conversions. But in any case, I think we should add both systems because they're official details that exist. Sidenote: The English actually uses lbs and metric tons! Does the US use metric tons?

I would go into the articles and add brackets for the metric measurements, but because we list them in the Bestiary sections and bestiary sections are cut and pasted verbatim from the English bestiary, doing this would give me immense anxiety(?).

If we listed these values in the infobox it would be fine, but then omitting them from the bestiary section that they came from would also feel a little strange.

These are the thoughts that I have. JBed (talk) 01:19, March 8, 2018 (UTC)

If the only thing to take from the other language bestiary entries is the weight (and not the whole entry), then I think it could be placed anywhere, like intro even: In the metric system versions the enemy's weight is x.
The PC version will surely soon have a mod to toggle imperial/metric units. It's a bit odd it doesn't already offer it since both systems are included anyway. Surely the Regalia's dashboard has only one graphic though. Imperial units is canon, it's first on the speedometer! ;)Keltainentoukokuu (talk) 11:16, March 8, 2018 (UTC)
Yeah, you right. I'll have to take a look at the Japanese descriptions for the speed-increasing car components and see if they give km/h speed or still list mph.
Actually, I think I've read that some of the translations of FF15 flavour have been liberal, like Ifrit. So there may be some advantage to lifting the entire Japanese bestiary and doing our own lit. translations. Although I don't think anyone would be up for that, so the infobox route seems best-- and there we can make it clear that the "t" referred to in all versions is metric tons.

Speed limit in Lestallum is "30", which sounds more like miles than km. Hm. That might be the only speed limit in the world.Keltainentoukokuu (talk) 21:50, March 8, 2018 (UTC)
