Move to "Jambeliever"?[edit]

Greetings. In light of the recently passed proposal, I think it's necessary to look at the name of this enemy again. I'm not entirely sure if it is necessary to change the name, but we do have an equivalent in Jammerjab who goes by the name "Jaharu Beat" in Japanese, so it would make sense to align this enemy's name with that one as has been done with enemies like Dekofloof and Giga Clanksprout from Kirby Mass Attack. What say you all? --Samwell (talk) 18:40, 13 August 2021 (UTC)

I would be fine with either. Jambeliever makes more sense as consistent with Jammerjab, but Jaharu Believer is more accurate to the Japanese writing. I think Jambeliever is the name Fandom is using, too. StarPunch (talk) 20:51, 13 August 2021 (UTC)
I am honestly torn on this one. I think both names have their merits and are technically correct for different reasons.
I would lean towards Jambeliever if it wasn't for the fact that Jammerjab in Japanese is "Jaharu Beat" instead of "Jaharu Jab", otherwise for me the adapted name would be fine. Also it's "Jambeliever" instead of something like "Jammerbeliever". The latter is way longer but would be more correct. At the end, I'm not sure if using the adapted name like that would be correct, and at the same time "Jaharu" is clearly Japanese.
So I will agree with whichever you all think is the best. - Gigi (talkedits) 21:41, 21 August 2021 (UTC)

I support changing it to "Jambeliever" by the reasons given at the start: To align more with Jammerjab, and taking inspiration of what was done with Dekofloof and Giga Clanksprout.
The only downside that I could see is that Jambeliever potentially wouldn't be the "correct translation" because, following what Gigi mentioned, Jammerjab would have been officially called "Jammerbeat" or something like that if the same system would have been applied. But well, it isn't like if HAL is giving us so much material to work with, and with using what they do gave us, Jambeliever has more sense than Jaharu Believer.
Maybe there could be a better translation, but it isn't like if we have the material needed to reach that point anyways. -Zolerian (talk | contribs) 14:01, 13 October 2021 (UTC)
Looks like the general consensus here is to move the page to Jambeliever, so I will go ahead and do that now. --Samwell (talk) 07:39, 31 October 2021 (UTC)
