Ygoganization has been found faulty at times with effect but I want to complain how the name is mindlessly pasted to yugipedia. Japanese use hiragana to spell foreign name the way they are pronounced. ハール is haaru/har (we could go with this before official TCG name) BUT there is no conceivable reason to interpret it as Hoarr. I’m saying even if people don't know much about localizing names, they shouldn’t blindly follow and instead should make checks like this. Hyoroemon (talkcontribs) 09:13, 25 July 2020 (UTC)

Hoarr and Harr are both correct, if you look around. Atem states we used the University of Victory Reading. But if you check around, Hoarr and Harr are used both for the spelling of the "One-Eyed" title. I think we checked via Japanese dictionaries on ハール, who state it's meant to mean One-Eyed, and then on Wikipedia's own compilation, which had it as Hoarr for "One-Eyed" vs Harr which was cited as "(The Most) High". So it's not like we didn't do research. English is a nightmare language and other languages don't transcribe well into it because it can't convey their sounds properly. You could politely just ask us why we made these decisions, for future reference. NeoArkadia (talkcontribs) 16:53, 25 July 2020 (UTC)
