Wrong name?

I happened to notice Personal Space Invader among the entries WardPhoenix removed from List of Monsters in a recent edit. Unlike the others, that one struck me as a pretty likely name for a Godville monster, actually — combining a well-known video game enemy with a "personal space" pun would be a pretty straightforward application of Standard Godville Content Formula #7, after all — so I went looking for more info and found this article.

At least if we go by the diary entry SiTheSuperior added in July 2015, this monster should actually be the "Personal Space Invader", not simply the "Space Invader". The entry reads:

!Hero's Diary
09:44 The Personal Space Invader tried to look cool, but soon died of hypothermia. I chipped a status cymbal and 19 gold coins out of the ice around it.

Is there any reason to think there actually is a "Space Invader" monster in the game? Or to put it another way, is there information to suggest that the diary entry is wrong / out of date, and "Personal Space Invader" is not the correct current monster name? Otherwise, I'll plan to move this article to Personal Space Invader and update the relevant entries in the list articles to match. -- FeRDNYC (talk) 08:05, 21 March 2019 (UTC)

Article moved, name is now Personal Space Invader. -- FeRDNYC (talk) 05:56, 26 March 2019 (UTC)
Article moved back, as the move proved ill-advised. -- FeRDNYC (talk) 10:41, 30 March 2019 (UTC)
