Untitled[edit]

Being from germany I can tell you that this is a FUN TOY and absolutely fictional. Its is made as a tourist present, most commonly in south germany, swiss and austria, and has nothing to do with sick rabbits whatsoever. --Ollj 18:14, 20 August 2006 (UTC)

So if it's just a toy, where'd the picture come from... Duh-Doo-duh-DUNNNN...

Unnecessary Line[edit]

"Jagex enjoys playing with words. Here, this staff member has used the line, "hear it coming in the air tonight" which is from Phil Collins' song, In the Air Tonight."

The original quote itself has questionable relevance to the article (and is also unsourced). This particular line, however, seems entirely unnecessary. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 90.241.17.32 (talk) 16:45, 4 November 2007 (UTC)

Dürer Painting[edit]

The rabbit picture is by the famous German painter Albrecht Dürer, but of course it's manipulated. Should this information perhaps be added to the description of the image? --Flowi 15:04, 1 January 2007 (UTC)

I noticed that, too, and decided to include the original painting. It's public domain now but still courteous to show the original work.

What does this RuneScape crap have to do with this page, so if any other MMORPG adds a 'animal' or whatever, ie. A tiger. I go and spam the page with "OMG X MMORPG HAS ADDED A TIGER!!!11! on 1st of"

--Phil2611 16:31, 3 November 2007 (UTC) Well, you see it has to do with more than just an animal, that's why it's there with the game.

Zamonia[edit]

The Zamonia bit isn't entirely accurate: The creatures in that book (part deer, part dog) were called "Wolpertings," not "Wolpertingers." It's clearly derivative, but not quite the same. —Qit el-Remel (talkcontribs) 02:16, 15 April 2008 (UTC)

In the original German version, they are called "Wolpertinger". A deliberate change or a mistake by the translator? Anke (talk) 04:29, 22 July 2009 (UTC)

Numerous WoW information tidbits[edit]

Some of the information there is actually interesting. such as the oktoberfest information. However the rest of it just makes the article a tad annoyin. If german students, german tourists, or anyone interested in Germany & it's culture was browsing the article, I'm sure they'd want something on the wolpertinger, rather than how to obtain it in Wow, what it's level is, and what it can do. This should be removed. But yeah, the oktoberfest stuff was interesting. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 123.200.203.80 (talk) 10:58, 20 October 2008 (UTC)

Crisensus bavaricus[edit]

Rilly? Mythical beasties have binomials? Where'd this one come from? Are there more? Can anybody add some explainy or insert a ref? ...or is it bullplop?  • Lainagier • talk • 12:07, 28 April 2011 (UTC)

Infobox[edit]

The infobox was removed, saying that it was "problematic" and "didn't offer anything". The remover also said that it "was influenced by cryptozoology". Would someone like to give me an example of how, in its most recent state before removal, it was problematic and influenced by cryptozoology? öBrambleberry_ meow _ watch me in action 00:20, 27 December 2012 (UTC)
