What i find fishy is that right with its stats, it says "Enemy type unknown" and at the bottom, it says nexar!!?? Please comment to add your thoughts. Mine is that it is fake. You think too?

Very fake. It’s not in the sprite sheet

It's obviously fake.
If you looked at the sprite sheets you'll see a whole bunch of stuff, this wouldn't be one of those.
There are even recolors of enemies, maybe the devs at one point were thinking of adding a little more diversity, or testing.

Traf, I'm pretty sure you are a developer or moderator, so can't you do something about spamming in the wiki maybe?

I don't know how to alter the wiki at all, not exactly my department

As far as I can tell, the only wiki admins are AgentBunni, DaGGerz, NightRage, Peldor, Spy-1, and the devs, of which only DaGGerz and the devs are even semi-active. IMO, all mods should be wiki admins, but they'd have to arrange that with the devs.

One thing though, is that not all mods know how to set up HTML and various things that webpages use, it's really pointless. Also, all of those admins are inactive.

Wiki pages use wiki markup, the basics of which are, for the most part, fairly easy to learn and use. They can use HTML, but most simple pages (which is most of the AF wiki) won't contain much of it, especially if the most common complicated uses of it for a specific wiki are wrapped in templates (which they should be, and are on the AF wiki). Also, deleting pages, reverting edits, and blocking users just takes a few clicks; it doesn't require you to learn any of that.

Like I said, they're only semi-active (though admittedly, even that's a stretch); DaGGerz did log on a little under a month ago, and from what I've heard, the devs have generally been at least semi-responsive to e-mails from moderators regarding major issues or moderation (though I could definitely be wrong about that). They'd probably be willing to make the mods wiki admins if they asked.

Well, one suggestion about why the person who put this on the wiki is either spamming or making fan-made items, and forgetting to put something like "This is a fan-made enemy".

No... it really wasn’t. Not to any extent.
