In some cases it is
more or less redundant, or at least unimportant to the context it appears in. For example, I took one usage off of the Skylanders page, which previously said:
But you can't just
remove the word, because then you end up with "the new feature of Giants
" (as if there's only one
new feature and doesn't need any disambiguation. Because like most sequels, there are several new features and this one just happens to be, pun intended, the biggest).
I can also agree that it makes sense
to use it in cases where you might otherwise end up repeating the given name in close proximity (as with the Naruto example).
