Support[edit]

  1. Baby Luigi (talk) I've expanded the intro a bit, talking about its general characteristics to serve as an introduction to the enemy. I've basically rewrote parts of the article that needs rewriting (like the miserable Sticker Star section, I've deleted the words, "If Mario is hit by these Banzai Bills it will cost Mario dearly as such a Banzai Bill takes away 30 HP in one hit which is half of Mario's max health early in the game.") and I've added enemy locations that haven't been listed here (like Super Princess Peach's levels). The article also suffered from abuse of the {{br}} tag, which I got rid of it, and I fixed up some the image clutter. I've also added a characteristics and traits section because why not, many other enemy articles have it too. I think the article is good and detailed enough to be featured on the main page.
  2. Alex95 (talk) I think the image placements could use some work, but it's a minor quirk. Support.
  3. TheFlameChomp (talk) Per all. I feel that maybe the Mario & Luigi: Dream Team could possibly describe what happens if Mario jumps on the cannon before it fires or what happens when he outruns the Banzai Bill, but that's just my opinion.
  4. Yoshi the SSM (talk) Per all.
  5. Supermariofan67 (talk) Per all.
  6. Goomba nr.34 (talk) Per all.
  7. Niiue (talk) Per all.

Comments[edit]

For me, the article isn't particularly detailed. I get that it's hard to describe an enemy whose two characteristics are "is big" and "moves sideways", but all of the sections just seem too sparse for my liking. Hello, I'm Time Turner. 18:31, 16 May 2017 (EDT)

I'll see what I can do. Maybe I can detail the level appearances (for the 2D platformers at least), showing where exactly it appears in, since these enemies are a bit rare and usually have very specific instances of where they spawn (like in Super Mario World's Yoshi's Island, three of them spawn near the area where you can duck and cover). I do have to watch playthroughs on YouTube or research level articles on MarioWiki if I come across them, but that's a way to add some more detail to the sections. As for Flame Chomp's suggestion, I'll also watch a YouTube playthrough of that instance, so I can write it down on this article. BabyLuigiFire.png(T|C) 18:55, 16 May 2017 (EDT)

After Baby Luigi's recent edits, I have rescinded my vote.
