Is there a really a point for having this category? I mean, look at the other subcategories for Characters: there are categories for species, jobs, game appearances, personal statuses (I have no idea how to classify "Children" or "Married" otherwise), organizations, etc. However, this category doesn't exactly fit into any of those sections, does it? It just seems like some sort of trivia point, something for someone to look at and say, "Huh, that's neat," but is that really necessary? Besides, it should go without saying that Lakitu (Mario Kart 7) gets his name from his species. We're just stating the obvious by having a category for this.

Not Delete[edit]


@Baby Luigi: I'm not sure if using sarcasm would be a valid vote... Also Iggy Koopa Jr., you need to provide a reason which accompanies your vote.

if you haven't seen the sarcasm from a mile away then I don't know what to say: my stance is pretty clear and my vote does explain why I want to delete it. BabyLuigiFire.png(T|C) 02:38, 7 October 2013 (EDT)
