Currently the Article is called "Scorpion" but there's nothing to identify as its name. Kankuro has wielded the puppet without its core which contained Sasori and Sasori himself was contained in the cored and therefore it had his name, as that was his true form, the only living form left, so it would seem to make more sense if anything to name this puppet "Sasori's Puppet", "Sasori's Puppet Body", or "Sasori (Puppet)" which would be more accurate as it was his original body and is quoted to refer to it as himself, and his old body in the quote, "Oh yes, its been a while indeed, since I last used myself," in the episode when he fights Lady Chiyo and Sakura. In manga chapter 518, he refers to it as his old body, not something seperate from himself but a possession he no longer uses or has access too (in this case via Impure World Resurrection) so at least I draw these conclusions as being best and not confusing any readers as to when and where this puppet became named as such. —This unsigned comment was made by 188.8.131.52 (talk • contribs) .
- Just before Kankurō reveals the puppet, we can see the scroll where the puppet is stored, it has the kanji for scorpion. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 22:55, November 28, 2010 (UTC)
That scroll read the Kanji for "Sasori" which means scorpion, but its his name and summons the puppet which is modeled from his original body. You could also say the scrolls name is unreliable as the kanji on the scroll for the Third Kazekage reads "three" yet we don't name the puppet three, we name it the Third Kazekage as is what he's called, so the kanji on the scroll can be argued as unreliable and can mislead someone from the actual name of the puppet. All dialogue has referred to the puppet as "my old body" and "myself" by Sasori in all instances in the manga as the user and hasn't been called any name by Kankuro or anyone else. Since Sasori is the only party with connections to the puppet, as its creator, to refer to it with any name it would imply its called "Sasori" and that Sasori was its user and the puppet itself generally speaking while he was alive and his core was inserted in its chest.
- Sasori's name has always been written in katakana instead of kanji, except for on his puppet body. Kankurō's puppet scrolls have always had full names on them. Besides, even if it wasn't the puppets official name — which would leave us with no canon name — it's a very handy way to make the distinction between Sasori and his puppet body clear, without deviating from canon too much and while still remaining consistent with the other puppets' names. —ShounenSuki (talk | contribs | translations) 20:53, November 29, 2010 (UTC)
Fair enough, I'm satisfied with that as an answer.
