  1. GreenDisaster (talk) I've looked over the original nomination for this article, and while I do agree that the article's in good shape, it overlooked one simple detail: the article is short. Yes, there's information on all of his appearances and his general information. Yes, there are a reasonable amount of images and no broken links. Yes, it doesn't have any improvement tags and is written in an unbiased matter. However, all of that does not change one fact: the article is short. Unless you decide to pad it with redundant or unnecessary details, that fact is not going to change. Heck, this article's not even in the top 1000 of the longest articles. I cannot find a single featured article that is nearly as short as this one. If we're arguing against featuring Shigeru Miyamoto because of the shortness of that article, why should this article remain featured when it's similarly short? Also, per the Yoshis. The starting sections is far too small to be placed on the main page, and it does not follow the empty section policy.
  2. Yoshi876 (talk) Per GD, also the starting section is extremely short not sure how it can go on the main page
  3. ThePremiumYoshi (talk) - Per GreenDisaster. I also agree that featured articles should not be short, even with general information. The article is also in violation with the Empty Sections Policy anyway.
  4. King Pikante (talk) Per GD.
  5. Webkinz Mania (talk) This has to be one of the smallest Featured Articles currently, if not the smallest Featured Article.

@Webkinz Mania: Kolorado is even shorter, but that's because the statistics page pad it out in Baby DK's article. BabyLuigiOnFire (talk)

If we're going by bytes, Kolorado is about 3000 bytes bigger than Baby DK regardless of the statistics. GreenDisaster (talk)
