As you may know, this wiki uses the names and terminology from the Japanese version instead of the ones found in the English games and media.

The vast majority of the Medarot franchise was only released in Japan, and during our time on Wikia we found that switching between using English names when available and using Japanese for everything else looked very messy. Not only that, but it also made things much more annoying to organize, so for the sake of consistancy we are sticking to the original names for everything.

Note that this does not mean we are completely ignoring the English version, as English names for a subject should always be mentioned on its page if there is a difference. However, Japanese names should always be used for links and page titles.

Here is a quick comparison of some major names and terms:
