    What about Jumpman and Mario I remember that old school shizzle

    I have always preferred Aeris to Aerith. Aerith sounds like the developers had a lisp. I can't stand that!

    I always thought the Balrog/M Bison switch in Street Fighter II was the most interesting.
  • BladedFalcon - July 14, 2014 6:06 p.m.

    It's also the most well known one, which is probably why they might have felt it redundant to put it here XD

    I've never called Robotnik "Eggman." I didn't even know they had changed his name back to Eggman in the States. I knew his original name was Eggman in Japan but.... ehhh... he'll always be Robotnik.
  • cesc_entreri - July 15, 2014 4:47 p.m.

    Agreed, he will always be Robotnik.

    "The Original Super Punch Out!!!" "Super Punch Out" "The Original" Uh GUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUYS
  • GR_HenryGilbert - July 14, 2014 12:52 p.m.

    I know the title is confusing, but there's a 1984 arcade game called Super Punch-Out!! that predates the SNES title!!_(arcade_game) That's what I'm referencing
  • shawksta - July 14, 2014 12:56 p.m.

    I am aware of the arcade game, but it was CALLED Super Punch out? Neat

    What about Koopa and Bowser ?? I remember playing Super Mario Bros. on the NES and he was always called Koopa then.
  • LordZarlon - July 14, 2014 1:08 p.m.

    To me King Koopa and Princess Toadstool are titles. I think Bowser and Peach are their names. I've always felt that they should still be referred to King Koopa and Princess Toadstool in all legal documentation.
  • mafyooz - July 12, 2014 12:05 a.m.

    I will never call Dr Robotnik "Eggman" any more than I will call Marathons "Snickers" or Opal Fruits "Starburst". Nothing wrong with a little local difference ;)

    Every time I've encountered someone saying Aerith over the last few years I thought I was misremembering her name being Aeris, but I never liked FF VII enough to actually look into it. Guess I did remember her right, from back in the day.
  • winner2 - July 11, 2014 10:10 p.m.

    It shall always be robotnik. That egg man thing is ridiculous.
  • BladedFalcon - July 11, 2014 11:41 a.m.

    Neat article, I've always wondered why Peach of all characters got such a drastic name change all of a sudden. Glad it happened though, Peach definitely sounds more adequate than Toadstool. Eggman just sounds stupid, however. I definitely think Ivo Robotnik was a much better name to begin with, but whatever.
  • BladedFalcon - July 11, 2014 11:43 a.m.

    ....Then again, it's the Sonic universe, where stupid names seem to be the norm. Thinking it further, I guess Eggman fits better in a world when you have names like "Cream the Rabbit" or "Big the Cat". ...Yeah, Suddenly, Ivo Robotnik seems too much of a cool name to be wasted on such series and character.
  • Vonter - July 11, 2014 6:31 p.m.

    Only the Genesis era and SAT AM cartoon deserve the Robotnik name. My uncle who introduce me to Sonic and videogames in general called him Robotonik.
  • BladedFalcon - July 11, 2014 7:30 p.m.

    Yeah, from what I know of that series, only in there it seemed fitting.
