Minions and Dark Minions Edit

Can we draw some sort of distinction between Fable III's Dark Minions and Fable's Minions? There is no information in Fable III to suggest that they are related in any way. I assumed Lionhead called them Dark Minions in order to separate them from the originals. Otherwise, wouldn't they just call them Minions, too? TheIndifferentist 21:17, February 22, 2011 (UTC)

To me they aren't connected at all. Fable's Minions seemed to be suits of armor with either creatures inside or possessed by Jack's magic. The Dark Minions are statues brought to life by shadows of a creature from a foreign country. Plus they don't look anything alike to me: Dark minions are full of rotating parts and have bird like heads while Fable Minions have canine like heads and are solid suits of armor--Alpha Lycos 22:07, February 22, 2011 (UTC)
Exactly. But the way in which this page and the Minion page is written seems to suggest that they are the same type of creature, or at least an evolution of the original Minions, and I just wanted to see what the general consensus was before editing. TheIndifferentist 23:06, February 22, 2011 (UTC)
I think the only relation between them is that they look similar, but as you have already stated, not very. Part of the reason they are written in a similar way is that they used to be part of the same page, and were {{Split}} afterwards because they turned out to be unrelated. --Enodoc(Talk) (User Space) 11:16, February 23, 2011 (UTC)

No dispute yet Edit

Since no one has disputed my last edit of the trivia section, I guess there is no need to mark this page as in dispute but I will confirm or reverse my edit soon.Garry Damrau(talk) 14:13, January 9, 2012 (UTC)


Editor introducing the statement about the statue of the Dark Minion of Reaver equaling a "kill" - I tested this empirically, and it is not correct. The missing factor is the "Colin" monstrosity of the DLC the game understands as indistinguishable from "Dark Minion". I am sure the commentator had no ill intent, only naive misunderstanding. I can safely state the real scenario: the editor-player has the DLC content, and killed the "Colin" cyborg - the similarities betwixt the design and model and so on, the "Colin" and the "Dark Minion" are interesting, to say the least, esp. from a developer perspective. Basically, the editor is confused and the statue registers no kill but equally enigmatically, the DLC "Colin" of Understone, is internally coded to "Dark Minion"...
