Meaning of "Gyromite"[edit]

Just to clear up some confusion, someone previously wrote that R.O.B.'s "spinning tops" were called "Gyromites" and that "Gyro" was simply a shortened version of the term (also, an older version of the special move template even had the down special move listed as "Gyromite" for the move's name as well). I don't know where that came from, but it was entirely incorrect. Gyro and "Gyromite" are completely different things. Gyros are the "spinning tops". Gyromite is the title of the NES game that used R.O.B. with the Gyros. The game got its title from the words "gyro" (which R.O.B. used for the game) and "dynamite" which was a major element in the game itself. The idea that "Gyro" came from "Gyromite" is nonsensical since that isn't even an actual word. --Bman87301 15:24, 26 March 2008 (UTC)


Is this really a stub? I don't know if there's any other info you could add on. Most Special move pages have less than this and aren't stubs.

Am I allowed to remove the stub tag?

Yeah, you're right. There's not much more to add, it's definitely not a stub anymore. I'll revmove the tag.--Bman87301 (talk) 21:41, 25 May 2008 (UTC)

What's That?[edit]

In the picture of R.O.B. throwing the Gyro, what character is being hit by it?Amycats2 (talk) 02:45, 30 June 2008 (UTC)

AmyCats2 the character being hit by R.O.B.'s Gyro would be Falco. It's a pretty bad photo and his face is covered but you can definitely tell it's him. Falco is an unlockable character so that's where you're confusion might have came from especially, if you haven't unlocked him yet.. L0ZE (talk) 02:53, 30 June 2008 (UTC)

I unlocked all the characters, it's just that I couldn't really tell who it was.Amycats2 (talk) 02:59, 30 June 2008 (UTC)

Fair enough. Yeah, it is a little hard to tell. I'll see if I can find a better pic of his Gyro hitting someone or maybe I'll just take one myself and upload it. Anyways... L0ZE (talk) 03:05, 30 June 2008 (UTC)


How do we know the name of this move? It's not mentioned on the dojo or in the manual. 06:36, January 2, 2010 (UTC)

Yes it's mentioned on the DOJO. Miles (talk) 18:19, January 2, 2010 (UTC)
