Bullet Bill[edit]

Support[edit]

  1. OhoJeeOnFire (talk) This article is in excellent shape and it is in Wikipedia format, so it should be featured.
  2. Bubbasour11 (talk) It has links to most of the sub-species.
  3. CBFan5 (talk) Overall, this article is pretty good. It has few contractions, and its format is great. Therefore, it should be featured.
  4. FanOfYoshi (talk) Per all

Oppose[edit]

  1. Ray Trace (talk) Article simply isn't ready yet. Compare it to Banzai Bill, and much more information can be used for its sections, such as level specific appearances and perhaps can use a game-by-game evolution of its appearances in a section for general information. I could do a more specific breakdown if you like but as of now, I don't support.
  2. Swallow (talk) Per Ray Trace.
  3. Hewer (talk) Per all.
  4. BananaBarrels (talk) In my opinion, the article is a bit too long to be featured. Featured Articles should be of a decent length, but newcomers should be able to read an article short enough that they can get a basic idea of this wiki.
  5. Waluigi Time (talk) Per Ray Trace.

Comments[edit]

You need to at least say why you think the article should be featured. Swallow's profile picture shown in NEO: The World Ends With You Swallow Rindo Kanade 11:47, October 20, 2021 (EDT)

Here's my issues with the article, using Banzai Bill as a point of reference:

  • Article lacks a sound cue for when a Bill gets shot out of a cannon. This is an extremely important cue for this enemy, as it often gets fired from off-screen.
  • Super Mario Bros.: Where exactly does it appear in World 5-1? And what other levels does it have subsequent appearances in? What levels where it's fired from a cannon, and fired off-screen?
  • No mention of Super Mario All-Stars when that warrants a section header.
  • No mention of Super Mario Bros. Special, except in appearances and nav template.
  • Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels: What levels does the Bullet Bill appear in? Also needs a reference to All Night Nippon Super Mario Bros.
  • Super Mario Bros. 3: Needs level specific appearances, also detailing where it appears in the level.
  • Super Mario World: This is what the sections in this article should look like, where it details their appearances level-by-level, especially for some that appear in some special rooms and whatnot.
  • Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins: Needs level specific appearances, also detailing where it appears in the level.
  • Super Mario 64: It's mostly complete but it doesn't mention how they eventually disappear if shot out for too long. Could use a comparison pic for it and the remake.
  • Super Mario Sunshine: Needs level specific appearances, also detailing where it appears in the level.
  • New Super Mario Bros.: Their level specific appearances could be further detailed.
  • Super Mario Galaxy: Needs level specific appearances, also detailing where it appears in the level.
  • New Super Mario Bros. Wii: Level appearances can use expansion.
  • Super Mario Galaxy 2: Needs level specific appearances, also detailing where it appears in the level.
  • Super Mario 3D Land: Needs level specific appearances, also detailing where it appears in the level.
  • New Super Mario Bros. 2: Needs level specific appearances, also detailing where it appears in the level.
  • New Super Mario Bros. U: Needs level specific appearances, also detailing where it appears in the level.
  • Super Mario 3D World: Needs level specific appearances, also detailing where it appears in the level.

(you get the general idea of the platformer appearances)

  • Paper Mario: Needs images.
  • Game & Watch Gallery: Linked section headers are not allowed, so those need to be edited out.
  • Mario Party: Needs images
  • Super Princess Peach: Section badly needs a rewrite, has remnants of old wiki writing.
  • Article has repetitive "this appears again, once again, reappears" when it should be written to be less repetitive. Bullet Bills are a series staple, it's known they'll make a lot of appearances.
  • Bullet Bills appear in Roy Koopa's move in Dr. Mario World.

This isn't all of it, I kinda fell after I was done with the platformer sections so...yeah now you get why I have issues with this nomination. BabyLuigiFire.png Ray Trace(T|C) 22:09, October 21, 2021 (EDT)

@Banana Barrels: That's not the point of featured articles. The point is to showcase the best articles on the wiki, not necessarily to introduce people new to it. BabyLuigiFire.png Ray Trace(T|C) 04:12, November 5, 2021 (EDT)
