Hey,hey,hey,hey,whoa. I clearly note that the Tank Robot is actually called the Guard Robot. It says so in the Keen 1 story!--Xterra1(talk)(work)(?) 22:30, 13 September 2007 (GMT)

Hmm, you're right that the story calls it that way. However, the official documentation with the game, the "Story, Hints and Cheat Mode" sheet contains a list of all the enemies and creatures in Invasion of the Vorticons. There, the name given name is Tank Robot. It is not consisteny with the name in the story, and the Guard Robot is actually another robot in Keen 2. Maybe they decided to change its name to Tank Robot so the Keen 2 robot could be called Guard Robot. I still think the documentation should be used as the official reference.Sega381 23:51, 13 September 2007 (GMT)
The story text in-game (STORYTXT.CK1) is what we can know about the worlds and characters from Keen's point of view. The official manuals and documentation is what we can know from the game author's point of view. This wiki is supposed to be a more formal Keencyclopedia sort of thing, so we should follow whatever is stated in the game authors's point of view, not Keen's, unless there is no such information from the authors.--Shadow Master 14:25, 14 September 2007 (GMT)
