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? 50.101.255.28 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. 192.139.237.254 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)
