Does anyone know where Xatu's name comes from? I've had the suspicion that it came from South American mythology, but not much luck yet. -ades - unsigned comment from Ades (talkcontribs)

It's derived from Natu. Simple. - Ferret 16:23, 30 May 2005 (UTC)


How exactly is Xatu pronounced this has bugged me for years and I honestly don't know why Bobtherandomguy 01:17, 24 March 2008 (UTC)

Za-tuu, I think. Tina δ 01:19, 24 March 2008 (UTC)
That's how I say it. The X is pronounced like the one in xylophone. TTEchidna 06:46, 24 March 2008 (UTC)

Crystal sprite

Alright, so I know it's a pain to make the animated sprites, but if somebody could fix the normal colored Crystal sprite, that'd be helpful. It's showing the beak and head feather from two different frames at the same time. R.A. Hunter Blade 20:55, 8 September 2009 (UTC)

The Inspiration for Xatu

I made the edit regarding how a Xatu looks like a Native American kachina doll, but it makes me wonder if the inspiration for Xatu comes from kachina dolls rather than totem poles. Have we gotten any sources verifying either? NoirTheSable 04:07, 11 February 2010 (UTC)
