Intended to be Beady Long Legs?[edit]

If its name in Japan is the exact same as the Beady Long Legs, then couldn't this have been intended as a redesigned Beady Long Legs, rather than a completely new enemy? 00:59, 7 October 2015 (EDT)

Pretty much. Like how the Iridescent Flint Beetle also got a redesing. Either way, for purposes of organizing the wiki, it's best if we have a page for each because a) the two names are different and b) their battle strategies are radically different. Not to mention that they look different and all. — {EspyoT} 03:55, 7 October 2015 (EDT)
Could at least mention what you just said in the article itself. 09:43, 7 October 2015 (EDT)
Well, we should try to avoid mentioning on an article how the wiki's page organization works. But I can add some more info comparing and contrasting the two enemies, which should implicitly explain why we have an article for each. Good thinking. — {EspyoT} 11:55, 7 October 2015 (EDT)

Should this page be merged with Shaggy Long Legs?[edit]

  • Baldy Long Legs is probably just Shaggy Long Legs, Because when all the hair on Shaggy Long Legs is gone, it looks exactly like Baldy Long Legs. So I think Shaggy Long Legs and Baldy Long Legs pages should be merged.

Baldy and Shaggy have different names when using lock-on, and they are encountered in entirely different situations: Shaggy is Story Mode only, while Baldy is Mission Mode only (and Bingo Battle). Besides, how do we mention it? "There's a hairless version of the Shaggy Long Legs that appears only in Mission Mode?" Phineas81707 (talk) 22:39, 31 May 2016 (EDT)

The article already states differences and similarities between it and other arachnorbs. Although they're pretty much the same creature, I think it'd be too cluttered if we made the Baldy Long Legs a section inside the Hairy Long Legs article. There's still unique stuff, like the technical data, trivia, locations, and, to a lesser degree, the combat strategy. — {EspyoT} 04:44, 1 June 2016 (EDT)

Japanese Name[edit]

Okay, I don't know japanese, but I looked up a video of the Japanese piklopedia, and the name of this creature is apparently ハゲダマグモ, which is apparently pronounced hagedamagumo, which seems to be a mix of はげた (hageta) meaning bald and shaggy's japanese name, kudamagumo. So the whole baldy = beady doesn't seem to be true in either language. 07:26, December 29, 2020 (EST)

Weird, I checked the game files for P3 on the Wii U, and indeed there is no ダマグモ, only ハグダマグモ. Now, the internal name for the Shaggy Long Legs is "damagumo", but that's all there is about the subject. Ugh, what a mess. — {EspyoT} 11:44, December 31, 2020 (EST)
