Hi Byakko,

the page you'd need to edit to add that link is MediaWiki:Sidebar. You can't, however, since it's protected and editable only by admins because it's an important interface element. I'll add it for you, but it would be nice if you could tell me a nice caption to write (the raw link is too long, and "Nasu Kinoko Work Glossary" is kinda bland and non-descriptive imo). --Grm wnr 15:06, 11 September 2007 (UTC)

Okay, I added it. I shortened it to "Nasu Encyclopedia" because that way it fits in one line, and added "(ja)" (ISO language code for Japanese). I hope it's okay this way. But thinking more about it, there are probably more links that are very relevant, and we can't keep adding them all to the sidebar. Maybe we should start a "links" page? -- grm_wnr Esc 17:31, 11 September 2007 (UTC)

Re: Levels of Perception on Mystic Eyes of Death Perception Edit

You added the line "while it hasn't been mentionned if Tohno/Nanaya Shiki can or not kill concepts (he has yet to be put in such a situation)," but didn't Melty Blood explain that Shiki couldn't kill Wallachia so long as he remained a concept and it wasn't until Arcuied Brunestud used the Crimson Moon to return him to physical form that Shiki could kill him? This is hazy second hand knowledge on my part, so I'm not sure, but I think that was the case. -Kokotosoko 07:58, 11 May 2008 (UTC)

Wallachia is a *phenomenon*. What Shiki couldn't do was stop Wallachia from "happening". I'm not quite sure Ryougi could kill the entire concept of a cyclone forming under given atmospheric circumstances. She would have to rewrite the entire laws of physics for that. --Byakko 19:50, 11 May 2008 (UTC)
I view phenomenons as concepts. If there's a flaw with this view, please correct me. I also see no reason why Ryougi Shiki should be unable to kill that concept. She once claimed that if god existed, she could kill him. If her abilities extend to being able to annihilate such phenomena, then it seems perfectly reasonable to say that she could kill Wallachia. -Kokotosoko 22:40, 11 May 2008 (UTC)

Please check my answer.

Arondight Edit

Out of curiosity, why was the Arondight entry in F/Z Berserker's entry edited? I think its pretty well established that the name of the sword is Arondight, not Alondite, which is a misleading transliteration.

It's pretty well established that it's Alondite, not Arondight. It's not a name of English origin. --Byakko 08:31, 5 January 2009 (UTC)

Not a name of English origin? Pardon me here, but Arondight is the sword of Lancelot, and Lancelot is wholesomely of English origin. And no, its not well established anywhere but here. 'Alondite', on the other hand, is the name of a sword from other fictional sources (a quick google proves it) and is unrelated to Lancelot.--Undisputed seraphim 08:51, 5 January 2009 (UTC)

'and Lancelot is wholesomely of English origin' In fact, no. He was a character made up when the legend went through France and was rewritten several times there ; he was invented by the French writers, taking feats from other knights, and he didn't appear in the earlier versions from the earlier English writers. The name "Alondite" in other fictions is obviously taken from Lancelot, just like how Excalibur is used in as many works of fiction other than the Arthurian legends. --Byakko 09:25, 5 January 2009 (UTC)

Indeed, but in this context, Lancelot is a Briton. The name of his sword in English is Arondight. At any rate, I tried looking up Alondite in the French websites, and could not find any relevant articles from Google (Arondight came up with results related, on the other hand). I conclude that, regardless of whatever name it has been called in the past, the English name of Lancelot's sword is now Arondight, is an English knight, and hence that's what the name should be.--Undisputed seraphim 10:24, 5 January 2009 (UTC)

He's still called "Lancelot du Lac", which is French, even in all the current English versions. I heavily doubt this makes him an English knight. --Byakko 10:35, 5 January 2009 (UTC)

And Morgan's name is Morgan le Fay, which is a French name too. Yet her origin is Welsh. And is part of the Arthurian legend. Lancelot's name is not exclusively French either, and the French websites didn't recognize the term Alondite anyway. It's a transliteration error.--Undisputed seraphim 11:15, 5 January 2009 (UTC)

After a quick check, it appears that the Matter of Britain spells the sword's name as Arondite, though I don't have a copy of it to check. And "du Lac" is exclusively French and "le Fay" wasn't a problem since it's not the name of someone invented by the French writers. They specifically made him a French knight to have France get its bit of shine in the Arthurian tales, Morgan le Fay was never an issue regarding her nationality. And by the way, I've never heard of any English version that changed him back to being English, even in later English versions, he was still French or just not mentionned. --Byakko 13:29, 5 January 2009 (UTC)
I moved the article to Arondight before I noticed this discussion, sorry about that. Please move it back if you think it's necessary. Though I went strictly by popularity of terms : search for Arondight [1] gives three times as much results as Alondite [2] (first of which is about Lancelot's sword as opposed to sword from Fire Emblem). Arondite [3] fares even worse. -Azaghal 14:16, 5 January 2009 (UTC)

So uh yeah, just FTR, I came across some random info where I read that even if Lancelot himself was made up in Chrétien de Troyes's stories, the sword Arondight didn't appear until those stories were retranslated to English. So the name Arondight doesn't have any French origin, even if Lancelot definitely does - the one in Monmouth's Matter of Britain is probably one of its earliest appearance. It doesn't have a "French version" simply because it didn't exist. So hum ignore everything I've said up here about the sword's name (except Lancelot certainly not being Briton at all). --Byakko 14:14, July 28, 2010 (UTC)

Shiki Tohno Edit

If it so badly worded why don't you change so I don't have to explain it? Cococrash11

Why does nobody write what happen to Shiki in Tsukihime or Melty Blood? Cococrash11

Nothing says it's forbidden, but we do have a policy of WRITING PROPERLY. Look at Arcueid's article for comparison. ---Byakko 17:01, December 7, 2009 (UTC)

Don't undo an edit saying source when i posted the source under maximum targets.

If you mean the Caladbolg II page, I don't recall the Fate/Side Material mentioning its range and maximum number of targets. Though, I can't access it right now so I can't check up. --Byakko 09:33, February 10, 2010 (UTC)
Okay, checked Fate/Side Material and I call bullshit on that. There is no such thing in there. All F/SM has about Caladbolg II is one picture, not even any comment or description. Please post a scan of the page where you saw that, because I can't see that anywhere. --Byakko 16:27, February 10, 2010 (UTC)

Vandalism Edit

"Is it me or is the ability to report vandalism (or any other "problem with this page") gone ?
(yeah, editing the shit out of this page since it was vandalism anyway so who cares, and I don't really know where else to put this)"
- (from deleted page)

Probably a Wikia bug (or a feature >.> ). Articles have a "Report a problem with this page" link, categories don't. There's also Category:Delete, but meh, haven't seen it being used at all. Deleted both vandalism categories --Azaghal 02:14, March 11, 2010 (UTC)

Yo, I notice you changed my edit on archer's page regarding Martin Luther. I do recall a moment in Heaven's Feel when at least the Shroud of Martin was referred to Saint Martin Luther, and in addition to this it's been said here on his page for as long as I remember that the cloak he wears is 'from a certain saint', that being very vague; this was the only logical explaination I could come up with. However I'd like to discuss it with you, since I find no talk about the shroud or the cloak at all on the internet, and maybe we can figure out what it really is if I am wrong.

I forgot to log in, but note if you got the message just now it was me. heh

I have no recollection of the origin of that shroud being specifically "Martin Luther", just "Shroud of Martin". It's not impossible that I'm just missing it though, if you can find the quote naming him. I'll try to look into it as well, but ATM I have serious doubts (and I've never seen any reference to him in other big TM reference sites such as Jonnobi, and I don't remember it on the Fuyuki Wiki either). --Byakko 13:10, April 19, 2010 (UTC)
... For example, I just found this where they're discussing the origins of the Martin of that shroud, and the description they're giving is the life of Saint Martin of Tours, patron of beggars, not Martin Luther. Then again, that's "just a discussion board" and I have no idea how relevant to Nasuverse canon these guys are (so I'm not going to add any of this in here), but still. Can't check the Japanese version of the game ATM, unfortunately.
Besides, Martin Luther isn't a Saint AFAIK. --Byakko 13:46, April 19, 2010 (UTC)

Chronicler V, get this shit off here. As for FHA, FZ and FE, I was talking to Bargadiel obviously, as he's the one who said he "never heard of a Fate sequel", it was a joke - for him, not you. --Byakko 10:01, June 27, 2010 (UTC)

Just heads up : check User:Chronicler V and User:Oblivion One. I'm not going to jump to conclusions, but this better be a coincidence. --Azaghal 18:59, July 2, 2010 (UTC)
Yeah, I noticed when Chronicler V tried to sign "Oblivion One" (just before registering the Oblivion One account) in one of those Talk pages we argued in (probably not realizing it was still written "Chronicler V" in the history), that's why I mentionned his "track record" when I removed his addition about the "Pretender" class :P thanks for the heads up anyway ;) --Byakko 19:12, July 2, 2010 (UTC)
Wow, haven't noticed he did that -_- . OK then, I'll have the banhammer ready for immediate use in case it is needed :) --Azaghal 19:51, July 3, 2010 (UTC)

Od - Odo Edit

Oh, my mistake. I went and checked to see if it was actually Od, and then I went to change it back afterwards but I guess it didn't go through.

Shirou's UBWEdit

Hey there, Byakko, I want to ask ya something, there's a probability that I'm wrong about it, but well here: is it just me or when I hears Shirou's UBW Chant, he add a "no" in between the "tada" and "ichido" ?, I may misheard it though, and I didn't see the kanji in the game firsthand -- Grandia III Yuuki 8:43, July 29, 2010

I don't recall the voiced version, but I'm almost sure his (text) version doesn't have this "no" here. I might have to check that again, though. --Byakko 13:33, July 29, 2010 (UTC), I checked it and I'm sure that I saw the "no" kanji written there. -- Grandia Yuuki III 9:02, July 29, 2010 (UTC)

That's odd, I wonder if it's one of those little details that were changed in Réalta Nua. I can't find an actual screenshot of the PC version ATM, but that's what I remember and all references I can find on the net don't put a "no" there. Oh well. Anyway, you're right, it's there in Réalta Nua. --Byakko 14:27, July 29, 2010 (UTC)

New Mahoyo characters Edit

Mahoyo website was just updated with character profiles. Any chance of you translating three new characters bios in foreseeable future? :) --Azaghal 18:44, August 19, 2010 (UTC)

No --Byakko 19:58, August 19, 2010 (UTC)

Saver Edit

Yeah um there were more picture but i don't care anymore it look great now

fate/stay night question Edit


I would really appreciate if you answer this question: How the merlin hide saber's gender; did he change the nature of her body or did he just use magic like illusion, Secondly, how was mordred born as a clone of saber? its really confusing. I heard that the answers to these question are in the fate/side material but as its in japanese with available translation i couldnt read them.

Thank you

Byakko Edit

Could you talk some sense into Libra? See the Parameters section for details.

Adminship offer Edit

[rant]Ever since I became an admin here at T-M Wikia, my stance has been to impose myself as less as possible on the users and to use my admin right for maintenance purposes only (removing spam, blocking vandalism). I believed that keeping the form and content of articles in the hands of users was the best way to keep this wiki active and useful.
And while I still think so, some recent events have shown me that with some issues a more assertive stance on the admin side would prevent what I perceive as deterioration of quality and integrity of some articles. [/rant]
With you being one of the oldest, most active and most productive users on this wiki, I was wondering if you'd like to receive admin rights that would (in addition to a few handy tools) give you leverage in discussions on talk pages and more authority to stop flame/edit wars?
I don't plan on stopping being active on this wiki, but having another active admin around can imho only lead to improved quality of the content of this wiki.
Also, since Chronicler guy just won't give up (and there seems to be an increase in random vandalism), I'll give you rollback rights - you can now undo all edits from the last user who edited an article with one click in page history. Even if you don't want admin rights, I'll give rollback rights to you and probably a few other most active users to be able to easily remove vandalism.
tl;dr You can now perform rollback, respond if you'd like to have full admin rights. --Azaghal 05:33, November 7, 2010 (UTC)

Eh ? Admin ? I'd be banning EGGS instantly. Anyway, I'm not active and I'm not here that often - I already mentioned I stopped being "productive" after the Extra!Archer issue. --Byakko 00:32, November 9, 2010 (UTC)
Dunno, on the wiki of this size, "active" means "comes often enough to see what's going on". Your contributions say you have a few dozen edits per month even after the Extra Archer incident, so you're being tsundere as qualified as the next guy. On the other hand, I took the last month off, and only came back when my feed had over 150 new edits... So, you can't call me an exemplary 24/7-active admin.
Anyway, I'm not going to force anything on you, but the offer still stands. And if I go through another inactivity period, I'll give you the rights after that regardless. We were left without an admin once already, so imho better to have half-active admins, than to have none at all. --Azaghal 04:24, November 9, 2010 (UTC)

Administration NominationEdit

Due to the lack of an active administrator, Arrancar109 has set up Forum:Administration Nomination. EGGS 15:41, February 3, 2012 (UTC)

Western naming orderEdit

I'd like to switch the character names over to Western order. See Forum:Western order. EGGS 17:24, March 3, 2012 (UTC)
