Battle Bird Armada

Isn't that the Archie name for it and those never take priority over game or general names? LinkTheLefty (talk) 00:19, June 19, 2014 (UTC)

I think there were two names for it: the Battle Bird Armada and the Battle Kuku Army. I forget which one is the American name and which one is the Japanese, though. MetalMickey272

As far as I know, the organization is completely unnamed in the English versions, I'm fairly certain even in Sonic Gems Collection where they retranslated the story summaries. I'm pretty sure this name actually comes from Archie Comics, but names aren't usually crossed between continuities. LinkTheLefty (talk) 00:59, June 19, 2014 (UTC)

I am responsible for moving the article name to "Battle Bird Armada". This is because there was once written in this article that it was called "Battle Bird Armada" in the English versions. I thought that this name could come from the Archie Comics, but I investigate the article's history and I saw that part about the English name was added in 2007 - which is three years before the Archie comics introduced that group in the comics. As such, I assumed "Battle Bird Armada" was legit.Ultrasonic9000 (talk) 21:19, June 20, 2014 (UTC)
Huh. Yeah, I see that the author made a reference that it was changed to Battle Bird Armada in English...but where, exactly? Looking at scans provided by Sonic Retro, it's nowhere to be found in the Tails Adventure or Sonic Gems Collection manuals, and it's also not on the back of the European box. I can also verify it's not in the game's description in Sonic Adventure DX for GameCube, so that only leaves the back of the North American box and the in-game Gems Collection summary. Sonic Retro's wiki also makes a note that they were renamed the Battle Bird Armada by Archie, so I'm thinking this is like the Sol Dimension thing where it (most probably) unintentionally came from the fandom but was picked up anyway by someone close to Sega...
Interesting. For now, maybe we can leave this as is until (or if) either the foreign language tag gets sorted out or those last two sources can be checked out, then we'll take it from there. LinkTheLefty (talk) 15:14, June 21, 2014 (UTC)
