Alright, so here's the situation. I've recently stumbled upon a game called "Monty on the Run." You know, the Commodore 64 game about the mole running from the law. Well, here's what tripped me out: His whole name is Monty Mole, which is also the name of a Mario species. So tell me, somebody, where does the name "Monty Mole" come from? It's really bugging me, since it seems like it ought to have origins other than "Wanted: Monty Mole." Any ideas?
I get the damnedest feeling this is in the wrong place, so correct me if I'm wrong. It has relevence to Nintendo, so I thought a Nintendo board, here because Monty the attack mole first appeared (and if I'm not mistaken was named as such) on the SNES.
What we have here is something called independent alliteration. Monty Mole. Cartoon animals usually have names like this, so think of all the names that begin 'Mo'...
Monty Mole is also only the English name for the enemy. Of course, it's possible that whoever did the English translation of the name may have played Monty on the Run, a Europe exclusive home computer game. But it seems just as likely to me that the names were developed independently.
Nester the Lark: Also, I know YL isn't into speedruns, but he might be interested to know that RPG Limit Break is having a Gust marathon all weekend, including several Atelier games.

nocturnal YL: Ah… Bad timing. I didn't read this until now, when it's almost over.

Nester the Lark: Well, if you're still interested, they'll be uploading the replays to their YouTube channel later this week.

Shrikeswind: I like that Mayles put her back in her kneepads. What's the last game they were in? One of the Kongas? It was a good look for her, albeit very 90's.

Shrikeswind: The jokes call to me, their siren song a temptation I can hardly bear, yet I must stay my tongue. Confound my dirty sense of humor.

Nester the Lark: The replies I see to anything Nintendo posts on Twitter are probably an indication as to why they abandoned Miiverse and decided that social media should be someone else's responsibility.

nocturnal YL: As mentioned in Twitter, I'm currently playing Atelier Meruru DX. I'm thinking about writing reviews for the Arland series afterwards, as well as making a second Nintendo Switch review video after I finish either this or my next game.

Nester the Lark: ^ I would be interested in seeing your reviews of the Arland games.

Nester the Lark: So, there's been Hyrule Warriors and Fire Emblem Warriors. But guys, how about this: Punch-out Warriors! It's like Punch-out, but you fight all of your opponents at once!

Shrikeswind: Sounds punchy, but unless it's a real knock-out I don't think it'd be a hit.
