Default Canonical issues.

A few issues have emerged among the editors of the Complete guide to the SoL Universe regarding the canonicity of certain characters. Rather than do any research, like they're paid to do, they decided to just ask the characters.

Anyone with a name change is a retconned character.

Yeah, I used to be canon but then I got retconned into a different character altogether. And then it happened again. What even am I anymore?

From what I understand, Canada doesn't exist in the SoLverse. But then various canonical characters have mentioned visiting Canada.

So "I'm from a tie-in of which the canonicity is not really all that clear"?

To be honest, though, Slowpoke's role as big bad has kind of been eclipsed in recent seasons by new villains like Galdus.

I am the tinkers and Kul Tiras. I am Baelgun Firebeard. I am the South Seas! And soon I will be canon! The seas must flood Azeroth before we can wash away the corruption of greedy and unattentive expansions.
