Ask CSM?[edit source]

Do NOT ask me why the gallery is not cooperating. I won't have an answer. If you know how to fix it, I will accept you as my new personal lord and saviour. Crazyswordsman 01:25, 25 June 2006 (UTC)

Merge with Tonberry (Summon)[edit source]

Been done with the other enemy pages. Doreiku Kuroofangu 14:42, March 20, 2010 (UTC)

We don't make two parents for enemies derived from summons, why should we for summons derived from enemies? Do it! :D 01:24, April 16, 2010 (UTC)
Oh, you wrote that nearly a month ago. Whatever, my point still stands. 01:31, April 16, 2010 (UTC)

Meteor Master[edit source]

Anyone else object to Meteor Master being put here? Yes, there are similarities in physical appearance, but it doesn't attack like a Tonberry and it isn't named Tonberry. It was really just a wiki editor's opinion that got it on the Tonberry page anyway. Baknamys are similar to Goblins; in fact, there isn't really any difference in the case of Baknamys vs. Goblins besides the name, but they have separate pages. That considered, I think Meteor Master should get its own page.-- 19:31, June 23, 2012 (UTC)

Yeah, they don't really look alike.C A T U S E 21:06, June 23, 2012 (UTC)
They actually do, considering the distinct looks of Unlimited to the rest of the series. - Henryacores^ 21:14, June 23, 2012 (UTC)
It could get its own page. But there are quite clear similarities, so the Meteor Master would be included on this parent anyway.
And I would also argue there isn't really much to say about the Meteor Master since it appears in only one scene of an anime. So it's probably best covered here. JBed 21:17, June 23, 2012 (UTC)

Tonberries[edit source]

Is it really needed to mention they're sometimes Tonberries? It's just a plural. 19:19, August 2, 2015 (UTC)

Tonberries (Final Fantasy VI) (and yes, due to how the game works, each singular one is named "Tonberries") -- Some Color Mage ~ (Talk) 22:39, August 2, 2015 (UTC)
Since these pages cover appearances of this knife-wielding creature as a whole, I would take more of a lore approach to names. So no need to mention plurals (unless it's as "(plural: tonberries)"). In the context of VI there is an enemy called a "Tonberry" and another called "Tonberries", but in the context of the series, these creatures have been called "Tonberry", "Pug", and "Dinglberry".

Tomberry[edit source]

I read a place suggest that this enemy's name might come from "Tomb" and "Bury". It's not the pronunciation of "Tomb", but ン followed by a b-sound does sound like an "m".

Also online people keep talking about some Ancient Chinese text, 我刘传/我劉傳/我劉伝, that has a demon called トンベーリ or トンベリ holding a kitchen knife and a latern when attacking people. Except I'm not finding any mention of this anywhere but on places explaining where Tonberry's name came from, and it looks like they've all copied/translated it from each other. So I think BS but if someone can navigate Chinese and figure that out... JBed (talk) 22:54, January 23, 2019 (UTC)

Hi. Thanks for letting us know. I second you verifiability concern because these kinds of made up theories are not exactly unprecedented. Fleet Command (talk) 07:10, January 24, 2019 (UTC)
