Lose the quotation marks, they serve no purpose and cause confusion. HellKaiserryo12[ADMIN] (TalkContribs) 20:04, May 15, 2011 (UTC)

How is it confusing? --РoйбoйX (TalkContribsUN) 20:08, May 15, 2011 (UTC)

Makes no sense to people why they are used, why you used them confused me. HellKaiserryo12[ADMIN] (TalkContribs) 20:24, May 15, 2011 (UTC)

Because they are part of the used ingame name. The Dragoon drone has quotes and nobody took those out. --РoйбoйX (TalkContribsUN) 20:28, May 15, 2011 (UTC)

"Humility" class turret etc yeah I know what you mean. That's because they were descriptive classes used to distinguish the turrets ala Hurricane "Katrina". (Don't know if that's often used like that in real life, but its the same system). Its different here because they seem to be doing it to describe the feature, because they dont have a proper name for it (Likely because 'tractor beam' is an overly-used term in sci-fi, so they are just using it so the readers understand its purpose). Therefore there is no need to use quotation marks in the article title. HellKaiserryo12[ADMIN] (TalkContribs) 21:48, May 15, 2011 (UTC)

Yeah, but it's like "the scritters". The Space Pirates don't call it the Urtraghus Virus like on Earth, where the virus is named after wherever it was studied, they call it "the scritters" because they are crude and whatever naming system they have for diseases, if any, must not be good. The same would apply to "tractor beam". Since the sentence is mentioned in the Samus' Notes section, it is technically Samus' term. --РoйбoйX (TalkContribsUN) 22:28, May 15, 2011 (UTC)

Why include the quotations in the first place? Definition of quoation marks says: "Use quotation marks [ “ ” ] to set off material that represents quoted or spoken language". In both cases, the quotations are used to show what the people/pirates are saying. The quotes are not part of the official name (if it even is official).

Metroid Prime 2: Echoes Edit

Should we really be assuming that the ability to absorb Dark Samus' Phazon attack is due to the tractor beam effect of the Charge Beam? The trajectory of the particles isn't affected by the beam at all. SteveZombie 11:25, May 17, 2011 (UTC)


So, any reason this page isn't capitilized at all...? 173.48.197.234 15:46, October 30, 2011 (UTC)

See the Manual of Style. Only proper names are capitalized. The MarioGalaxy2433g5 {talk/contribs} 16:07, October 30, 2011 (UTC)
