Shouldn't this be under Hokage? Hank is a fan term that Coronis came up and has nothing to do with the actual manga, right? --Zeta 22:03, 20 February 2006 (CST)

We might want to check with someone who has access to the Chuang Yi (Singapore) translations. - 振霖T 01:09, 21 February 2006 (CST)

Well, the Chaung Yi names for Homura (Tabitha), Kakari (Courtney), and Hokage are Mitch, Marge, and Mack. No Hank, purely an invention of Coronis. --Zeta 11:02, 21 February 2006 (CST)

Hmmm, more translation errors I see. (Homura → Tabitha/Mitch etc.) - 振霖T 03:02, 22 February 2006 (CST)

i thought hokage meant fireshadow...Garrison12795 14:18, 3 August 2008 (UTC)

WWWJDIC's definition is "firelight, shadows or forms moving in firelight".--Loveはドコ? (talk contribs) 15:13, 3 August 2008 (UTC)

To clear things up, I for a fact know that "kage" means shadow and I see the fire symbol,火, so its gotta be fire shadow. Yeah, I watch some Naruto and Hokage is in that, and I'm pretty sure it means fire shadow.--DRAGONBEASTX 08:52, 13 February 2009 (UTC)

Yes. This is the literal meaning. But 火影 together mean "firelight" 火 and 影 separately mean "fire" and "shadow". Have you ever heard about idioms? --Maxim 09:10, 13 February 2009 (UTC)


"He was ranked as 14th in a Popularity Poll on Netkun." That's false because Giovanni IS the 14 most popular personnality ... Official "Pokemon Special" Website - unsigned comment from Stry (talkcontribs)

Where is Mack ranked now? I can't read Japanese so I need help with this, but there is a difference between "was" and "is". Does the website update the poll constantly, or is it the same one from way back when it was originally taken? R.A. Hunter Blade 18:43, 24 March 2013 (UTC)
