Rename?

Since official English names are used whenever possible in the Wiki, it should be noted that the name "Drill Eggman" was never used in any official capacity outside of Japanese guides. However, Egg Mobile-D does show up in one particular guide (albeit Japanese) - in clear English. Should that be the name used for the article? The only thing is that it breaks some mild congruity with Drill Eggman II. LinkTheLefty (talk) 21:12, June 7, 2014 (UTC)

Is "Drill Eggman II" even the correct name for Mystic Cave's boss? Mystic Orb (TP.CO.EC) 22:58, June 7, 2014 (UTC)

It comes from a Japanese Sonic the Hedgehog 2 or Sonic Jam guidebook... Specifically, it comes from The Green Hill Zone, which posted obscure names along with English fan-translations of them. It's hard to find these pages online, but I'm going to say they have a decent chance of being accurate since Sonic Generations used Big Arm and Death Egg (Robot) (although, on the other hand, some names like the ones they used for Chaotix enemies appear to be bogus as far as I can tell).

I see then. In any case, I believe in addition to "official English names", recent names are also used when possible (though I might not be too familiar if that's actually true) so I'm comfortable with this being renamed to "Egg Mobile-D" since Sonic Advance came later than the first release of Sonic the Hedgehog 2.
