I've got a BIG problem with naming my monsters.
There are 3 names i've got a problem with. (These names are Dragon Quest III styled, so i want a Dragon Quest III NES-styled name! Less than 10 chars!)
BEE
Just unoriginal. I want a new name for it.

DARKBEE
Don't like it either.
DARKBEE is just a recolor of the bee above.
STINGER
Yup. I just want names for my bee enemies.
STINGER is yet again, a recolor of the bee above.
Here are examples of Dragon Quest III enemy names:
BLACKRAVEN
HUMANABAT
MADHOUND
RAMMORE
FROGGORE
CATULA
DEMONITE
AVENGERBEAK
TORTRAGON
LIONHEAD
HOLOGHOST
MAGIWYVERN
SWORDOID

Latin name for bee is Apis

So for the regular bee I'd say Buzzapis
Dark bee I'd say Umbrapis (Umbra is Shadow)
Stinger I'd say Ictapis (Ictus is Sting)

But if u have to name them like Dragon Quest

BUMBLEBUZZ
DUSKBUZZ / SABLEBUZZ
BLADEBUZZ

Any skills/traits that differ them other than the color?

Well, the purple one uses poison, the white one uses paralysis and ice, and the red one is just an apple.

Make it have a second form of a bull :D

But in all seriousness, Apis is a deity so if the name is added with anything it wouldn't be the same, or so I think

Clark Ashton Smith invented names by rearranging the syllables in the names and surnames of his acquaintances. When I need to come up with a name, I just switch the keyboard layout and type some word, for example cerf,kzlm = Ceraph Kazalum.
This is primitive, but I like it.

I kind of think that the name 'Majorbear' for the Ursamouse is pretty neat--like Ursa Major, but also that it's a bear, and also since Ursa Major is supposed to represent a bear. Plus it sounds neat. I'm not sure about the others, though.

Yeah, I would stay away from using anything related to "apis" for the bee names. I mean...I see where it's coming from, it just...well, it's got the sound "piss" in the name. Umbrapis could literally read as "shadow urination" and I just can't take that seriously. Maybe something like Buzzthrill, Buzzkill and Buzzdrill would be better. I'm not the best at naming stuff myself but I really would stay away from the apis/piss thing.

I didn't see the character limit but I'll leave these for you to mess with.

some test stuff. Empty for now. My other project (this project) needs more attention. The lagging really kicks up when I try to capture gameplay. ✨

When your side job becomes more interesting than your dayjob and you think "do I quit again or finally actually do the same thing for more than five consecutive years..." I don't think I'll ever be able to say that though, I just cannot stick with one thing like you're 'supposed to'.
Does the word "research" imply that you're searching for something that had been found before?
So Dad broke the blinds two days ago and he finally decided to try to fix them. I doubt he'll do very well without some help. And I can't help him myself--I don't know how the stink to fix those blinds. My knowledge is just plushies, mascots, computers, animation, and video game design. And also, I've had to stop family and friends from downloading viruses too many times to count.
