Should we use "Island of the Lost Warrior" as the name of the location?[edit]

Honestly, I feel the conjectural name "Island of Kit Cosmos" makes no sense as I feel the official episode name "Island of the Lost Warrior" is the closest thing this location has got to getting an official name, and also with Kit Cosmos' name in capital punctualization it may look like a conjectural title misconstrued as an official name.

Additionally, Masher 2.0 is named after the eponymous episode it appears in. This might give you some food for thought. However, we should also take into consideration that the Japanese title of the episode would make it refer to it as "Remote Island", which... is kind of a far cry, given that the "lost warrior" in question is referring to Kit Cosmos (which would also make sense to rename the title from "Island of Kit Cosmos").

If you wish to add comments regarding this and if you either agree or disagree with this idea, feel free to do so below. -- KatFL language C.svgKatFL language Y.svgKatFL language O.svgKatFL language N.svg (profile ::: talk) 11:23, 6 July 2023 (UTC)

I feel like both Island of the Lost Warrior and Island of Kit Cosmos are equally valid. I'm not sure if naming the page Remote Island after the Japanese episode title would be any better or not, since while it is clearly referring to this island specifically, you could argue the same thing for the English title with the current name and Remote Island is a generic name. ---PinkYoshiFan 19:41, 6 July 2023 (UTC)
I gave this some thought. To be honest, I always found it weird that the island is referred to as "Island of Kit Cosmos" since that implies some sort of ownership. Purely from a biased viewpoint I like the sound of "Island of the Lost Warrior" more as a title. The argument with Masher 2.0 is valid, too. To be more objective though, I don't think any of the names we can give it can be undeniably considered the name of the island, so it'll probably be conjectural in any case.

I still think that Island of the Lost Warrior and Island of Kit Cosmos are equally valid since both are descriptive, I'm good if we move it to Lost Warrior since that lines up with the episode title but since it's not clear on if that's the actual name of the island (could just be saying that it's a generic island that happens to have a lost warrior on it), it would probably still be considered conjectural and therefore not any better or worse than the current one. ---PinkYoshiFan 13:46, 15 December 2023 (UTC)
Apparently this is named 孤島 in Japanese in the 20th Anniversary Kirby Pupupu Encyclopedia, which translates to basically "solitary island" (link to it in the Japanese Kirby wiki). Point of note that the wiki also mentions that 孤島 comes from the Japanese name of that episode. Anyway, I will check the book in a few to see how that is worded. - Gigi (talkedits) 13:56, 15 December 2023 (UTC)
Agreeing with everyone else about the two names being equally valid. "Lost Warrior and Kit Cosmos" both refer to the same thing, so I don't see a reason to change it. ~☆Starvoid⁠☆ (t · c) 18:36, 26 December 2023 (UTC)
Alright so here is the page the island is named in Japanese. But it appears to be more of a generic name than anything (aka it's more worded like "a solitary island" than "the Solitary Island". I will say though, 孤島 is used in the episode's Japanese name, so I guess if we wanted to do similar we would indeed use the "name" the island is given on the episode's English title, so "Island of the Lost Warrior". - Gigi (talkedits) 18:39, 31 December 2023 (UTC)
If nobody's opposed I'll go ahead and move it to Island of the Lost Warrior soon, although leaving the conjectural tag on. ---PinkYoshiFan 14:50, 18 February 2024 (UTC)
That sounds good to me. - Gigi (talkedits) 18:37, 18 February 2024 (UTC)
