110 has confirmed for us that the being within the guard rail that kills people during "Radio Gaga Incidents" is said to be a rock creature. So then why is it unnamed on the wiki???? I understand that the creature is never truly named within the manga, but I'm pretty sure its name should be Radio Gaga. My reasoning is thus: the incidents (and also the arc itself) are known as "Radio Gaga", which is a reference to the Queen song of the same name. This wouldn't be enough proof if it weren't for the names of ALL OTHER ROCK CREATURES (other than Iwasuke). All the creatures are named after songs with "nonsense" lyrics and titles. I mean there's "Doremifasolati Do", "Dododo De Dadada", and "Obladi Oblada". It just makes sense for the final rock creature's name to follow the conventions of all others.

I think it makes sense but we can't list it as its name on the wiki since it's still considered speculation. I would have agreed if Joseph or Lucy called the creature itself "Radio Gaga" in chapter 110, but they only refer to it as the "Guard rail" each time. They call the incident itself the "Radio Gaga Incident" because of the creature making gaga noises when each of its victims were killed.

I feel like it's perfectly fair to not name it, given that most of the other rock creatures are given their names so specifically and unambiguously. "radio gaga" in-universe is just the name the newspapers gave to the incident. For all we know Tooru read that article like "Ugh, can't believe they're referring to ol' 「Twist N Shout」 like that!"

The creature is named "Radio Gaga" in the Volume 27 tailpieces, that's why we have it named that way on its page. (Note that this forum post was created before Volume 27's release, so the name hadn't really been confirmed yet at that time.)
