Octagon?

Should we mention that 4kids called it Octagon? WaterKirby1994 20:39, August 9, 2011 (UTC)

This is a very good question. Should we rename it? https://web.archive.org/web/20090201034506/http://www.4kids.tv:80/show/kirby/episodes

Does "Octacon" even come from anywhere? As far as I know, the octopus is only mentioned by name in the Japanese version of the episode, and "Octakon" is used by both unofficial subtitles and as its internal filename in Kirby Star Allies, which is more obviously derivative of the Japanese word tako. If 4Kids is preferred, let's call it Octagon. LinkTheLefty (talk) 14:04, December 1, 2019 (UTC)
Well, it turns out 4Kids does call it Octagon in their short synopsis as linked above. I suppose we'll use that name, since it's the only official English source we have. Filenames tend to be based on the Japanese name, as is already noted. Iqskirby (talk) 20:20, December 1, 2019 (UTC)
