Talk:Energized Flame Swords

From BIONICLEsector01

According to the BEU p. 50 and the Makuta's Guide p. 39 Jaller Inika had only one Energized Flame Sword, so the Prisoners of the Pit double sword (written about the prototype) is the incorrect, not the set version. Should we rename/redirect the page? — SurelNuva (Talk) 19:20, 4 August 2017 (CET)

Best to check with Greg about this one. -- Morris the Mata Nui Cow (talk) 23:02, 4 August 2017 (CET)
In the BL7 p. 5 Jaller was described having 1 sword. On the page 9. he had 2 swords. — SurelNuva (Talk) 00:07, 5 August 2017 (CET)
So, I only found a quote, where Greg said he needed Jaller to have 2 swords, that's why he wrote it like this. But every other source says that Jaller had 1 Energized Flame Sword. I found no indications yet, that the prototype had two, only that Greg decided that Jaller need a pair of them, so he had them. But in the MGttU Jaller is described to have only one sword though.— SurelNuva (Talk) 19:03, 18 May 2020 (UTC)

Revisit this, can we rename the page into "Energized Flame Sword" as the very first quote in the trivia says it was a typo?--Surel (Talk) 06:45, 24 September 2021 (UTC)

I second this. To reiterate, BEU (p. 50), MGttU (p. 39), BL3 (pp. 47, 80), BL5 (pp. 33, 62, 70, 95), BL7 (p. 5), and only mention one sword. The only mention of two swords is BL7 (p. 9). Here’s a list of all relevant Greg quotes I could find.
Jun 8, 2007[1]
"'Jaller's burning swords...' 'I'll light up my swords...' since when's he got two?"
"Just a typo"
Jul 7, 2007[2]
"Why in the Zyglak battle at the beggining Jaller is said to carry two swords?"
"Cause I wanted him to"
Jan 2, 2008[3]
"Jaller Inika had two swords in BL7, where did he find the other one?"
"Always had it, just didn't in the set"
Jan 6, 2008[4]
"Just to make sure as I get confused about this, Jaller Inika had 2 swords in the story but 1 in the set and Jaller Mahri has 1 sword in both the story and set?"
Feb 25, 2008[5]
"When was it decided that Jaller had two swords as an Inika and Nuparu had a blade as a Mahri? I know they both appeared in the books, but was the decision made earlier? It makes sense that the Jaller set only had one sword to make room for the Zamor, and that Nuparu got a Cordak instead of a sword, though."
"It was decided when I was writing"
Sep 7, 2009[6]
"As an Inika, Jaller had two energized flame Swords(storywise), but as a Mahri, he had only one Power Sword as far as I know. Did the Two Swords become one, does he have two Power Swords, or does he still have one Energized Flame Sword?"
"He has one sword"
Feb 11, 2010[7]
"Does Jaller have two Power Swords?"
"Is he shown having two somewhere?"
Feb 17, 2010[8]
"Did Jaller Inika plainly put one of his swords away after he got a Zamor launcher?"
"More likely, he simply carried it with him in some way."
Since BL7 is the only published source that has two swords, and it suddenly switches to Jaller having two when he only had one a few pages prior (with no explanation of where the second came from), this supports the idea it actually was just a typo, and the page should reflect that.
