Family name[edit]

"Krycsiwiki" is not a correct Polish family name - might be "Krysiwicki" instead for example (rough English pronunciation: Cree-she-vee-tskee). I don't know, if this apparent error is in a novel, or in an article only. Pibwl 20:19, 10 Dec 2004 (UTC)

If you're correct then it's most likely an error by the author (if it's an error at all). Google shows that only the spelling Krycsiwiki has mentions of Jaws while Krysiwicki does not. (Although Google attempts to correct the spelling with what you listed). I don't have the novelization so I can't look it up :( K1Bond007 21:08, Dec 10, 2004 (UTC)
Theoretically, a Pole can have a name: "Krycsiwiki" or whatever other he likes (or he inherited) - but it doesn't sound a Polish word. I'd say 99% chance it should be Krysiwicki (which is not common - I've never heard one, but it sounds Polish). It looks to me just a typo in a strange foreign name with many letters ;-) Pibwl 22:28, 13 Dec 2004 (UTC)

GoldenEye game[edit]

This article features a lot of background storyline bits about the Aztec level of the N64 GoldenEye 007 game - but none of it is featured in the game. It all sounds like made-up speculation to me. --128.243.220.21 15:05, 5 Mar 2005 (UTC)

Yeah... theres is an Aztec level and Jaws is in it. It's one of the final missions of the game. K1Bond007 17:21, Mar 5, 2005 (UTC)
It badly needs a rewrite. I'll do it if and when I feel like it.--DooMDrat 12:32, May 11, 2005 (UTC)
Information about a video game hardly needs to be in an article on Jaws. In addition, it was horribly written and gave me a headache just trying to comprehend it. I deleted most of it in the interests of comprehensibility. --Oesor
I just up and rewrote the whole section. I don't know where all this back story came from for GoldenEye. There isn't one from what I recall. K1Bond007 03:53, Jun 21, 2005 (UTC)

Redundancy[edit]

The line "In The Spy Who Loved Me, Jaws was supposed to lose to the shark at the end of the film. However, after test audiences revealed how much they enjoyed the character, the ending was rewritten to allow for Jaws to survive and swim away." basically restates something mentioned earlier in the article, and as such I have deleted it.

Jaws Can Talk[edit]

If you have seen Moonraker you may remember that bit near the end where Jaws opens a bottle of champagne and says to is girlfriend: well, here's to us

That's already mentioned in the article.--Drat (Talk) 22:31, 26 January 2006 (UTC)

Grammar[edit]

"Jaws also has an uncanny ability to survive any misfortune seemingly completely unscathed and come back and challenge Bond again" 

While this is true, saying he was "seemingly completely unscathed" sounds contradictory. I would advise changing it to either "completely unscathed" or "seemingly unscathed."

Untitled[edit]

Jaws escaped from Drax's lair in an escape pod. And by that point he had turned good. I'm changing it.

how to fix the box at bottom?[edit]

How do I fix the large box at the bottom? It's got "Official James Bond film charcters Note: Some charcters may be villians and girls" at the beginning, making for 3 typos in that short amount of space. 65.190.52.238 21:09, 12 June 2006 (UTC)

If you look at the wikicode, you'll see {{James Bond characters}}. Simply take the words and prepend Template: to them, the get to the template itself. Like so Template:James Bond characters. Someone already removed the redundant note bit, but I'll leave the typo(s) for you to fix, for the experience.--Drat (Talk) 05:42, 13 June 2006 (UTC)

Teeth composition[edit]

This could seem nit-picky but I could have sworn I remembered Jaws' teeth to be made (at least partially) of cobalt. I'd like confirmation before I (or someone else) goes and changes that. I'm fairly sure they weren't made of pure stainless.

--Downfall 00:41, 26 July 2006 (UTC)

I don't believe it is mentioned in the film. Maybe it is. The novelisation says it's made out of "platinised steel components." (pg. 94) K1Bond007 01:27, 26 July 2006 (UTC)

Merger proposal[edit]

Per a request at WP:AN/RFC, this discussion is closed with the result being to merge Jaws' Teeth into Jaws (James Bond) -Nathan Johnson (talk) 19:52, 30 May 2013 (UTC)

The following discussion is closed. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made on the appropriate discussion page. No further edits should be made to this discussion.

The information in the article Jaws' Teeth may be notable, but it is currently not enough to create more than a stub article. This article about the character has been lacking in sources for almost a year. Merging the two together solves both issues, and creates a more comprehensive article. Fortdj33 (talk) 14:14, 22 May 2013 (UTC)

  • Oppose: Merging would only serve to source just one part, not the majority of the article therefore it would not fix the sourcing issue. The teeth article had sufficient sources to fulfill WP:GNG and thus should remain. I would suggest that this merge proposal appears to be a bit of WP:ASZ. The C of E God Save the Queen!

  • Support merger of Jaws (James Bond) and Jaws' Teeth. There is absolutely no reason to have separate articles. – PeeJay 15:12, 22 May 2013 (UTC)
  • Support merger of Jaws' Teeth into Jaws (James Bond). Same lines of argument here as there were regarding the Oddjob's hat article: not independently notable from the character, and separation of the "teeth" from the character takes them out of all context from either films or character. - SchroCat (talk) 15:55, 22 May 2013 (UTC)
this point appears to fall foul of WP:ITSCRUFT. The C of E God Save the Queen! (talk) 18:39, 22 May 2013 (UTC)
Not really: saying it's not notable when out of context is hardly the same thing. - SchroCat (talk) 18:49, 22 May 2013 (UTC)
  • Support merger of that into this. Not particularly significant by itself, and definitely not a case in which we need to have separate articles for size reasons. Nyttend (talk) 21:20, 22 May 2013 (UTC)
That argument falls foul of WP:ASZ. The C of E God Save the Queen! (talk) 11:27, 23 May 2013 (UTC)
No it doesn't. The argument is that Jaws (James Bond) is not too big to need splitting, not that Jaws' Teeth is too small to exist separately. – PeeJay 13:01, 23 May 2013 (UTC)
  • Support merger per above. - Fantr (talk) 23:39, 22 May 2013 (UTC)
