Japanese Name[edit]

フクロウ目 is the Japanese name for the order, Strigiformes (目 is a suffix all order names use). Although this describes the same animals as the simple word "owl," it is only used in scientific taxonomy. The Japanese word that corresponds to the English word "owl" is just フクロウ (fukurou). If there is no evidence that the word フクロウ目 is used in the games, the name should be changed.

  • フクロウ is also the Japanese species name of the Ural owl. But the word is used to describe all owls as well. Ok (talk) 15:28, March 6, 2019 (EST)
