fictional land shark from D&D --Tobby (talk) 18:26, 29 January 2013 (UTC)

Move to RFV since it might turn out to be used (as the entry suggests) in other places, like perhaps roguelike computer games (they often "borrow" D&D monster types). Equinox 18:28, 29 January 2013 (UTC)
I've added a cite from it was used in a rougelike game called Ancient Domains of Mystery--and a cite from where it's used in a generic way. Plus a couple more cites, the original from The Dragon and a more-or-less generic one from (talk) 06:28, 17 April 2013 (UTC)
I've added a cite from the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game; in 2000, the owners of D&D released the base part of it under a pretty Free license, and thus many people are using creatures like bulette under a license that's for many purposes the CC-BY. I'm not sure where this goes with "fictional universes"; Pathfinder makes no reference to any universe owned by D&D Hasbro (owners of D&D).--Prosfilaes (talk) 06:41, 17 April 2013 (UTC)
  • Keep. The pertinent regulation is probably WT:CFI#Fictional_universes, to wit: "Terms originating in fictional universes which have three citations in separate works, but which do not have three citations which are independent of reference to that universe may be included only in appendices of words from that universe, and not in the main dictionary space. ..." ... Prosfilaes has provided some promising citations at bulette, so unless someone questions the citations, this can be kept. --Dan Polansky (talk) 08:46, 7 December 2013 (UTC)
