トリアナックル & メタルコルトノス

The meaning of these eludes me.

Obviously, it's something like "Toria" Knuckle and Metal "Korutonosu", but those don't sound like anything English that I know of. They're supposed to be concealed weapons, if that helps.KrytenKoro06 07:00, 3 May 2009 (UTC)

After doing a bit of searching I think I've figured out Marsmon's weapon names.

"Toria" seems to be the Japanese word for "thoria" or "thoriated tungsten", a metal that can take quite a bit of heat - probably meaning the large metal knuckles can become red-hot.

"Korutonosu" is apparently a typo of "kotorunosu", or "cothurnus", a type of laced boot from ancient Greece and Rome. I'm assuming they weren't always metal.

Hope this helps! Deadborder 21:48, 4 June 2012

トリア is translated as τρια, which is Greek for "Three". I can find some that translate as "Toria", but that's an obsolete name for a white, radioactive powder that wouldn't be used on weapons. Meanwhile, "Three Knuckle" finds plenty of brass knuckles on google, which makes sense in context.KrytenKoro06 00:29, 10 June 2012 (CDT)

True, I did see that as well - the only reason I hesitated to put that is because it was a Greek term, and the Olympus 12 seem to be based on the Roman interpretation of those gods. I was also leaning more towards the "thoriated tungsten" version; though the weapon is supposed to be hidden, it doesn't look like there's anything resembling a brass knuckle of sorts on Marsmon.
