Just a theory?[edit]

"In Super Mario World one of the airships crashed near the entrance to the Valley of Bowser. It is now the Sunken Ghost Ship" Do we know if this part is true or just a theory? --Sml007.5 13:47, 13 August 2006 (EDT)

It says so in the Instruction Manual for Super Mario World. But it never shows it crashing in the game, it only says that in the manual. Paper Jorge 11:11, 13 August 2006

Plus the exit for the level is one of those ? balls from SMB3. If that's not a clue I don't know what is. And there's boxes all over the level, which look like the ones in the airships.

WHERE does it say it in the manuel? *Max scans through manuel* nothing. Max2 (talk)

Airship in SM64[edit]

Is the flying ship in Super Mario 64's Rainbow Ride an airship? I sometimes think it is... --YellowYoshi398 19:21, 21 December 2006 (EST)

No, not really it isn't It looks very different. Paper Jorge

Although not an Airship in the classic sense of the word, it is an air ship.
- Yoshi Mastar

It's just a ship with wings

Coin airship[edit]

Is there a seperate page for the Coin-filled Airships of SMB3? I can't seem to find it if there is. And this article does not mention it. :O BLOC PARTIER.

It's at Treasure Ship, I believe that's the official name for it. YELLOWYOSHI398
Ah. I'll go make a couple redirects then. Thanks! BLOC PARTIER.

Doomship[edit]

Now I know that not many people will look here, but shouldn't we give the Doomship from the cartoons it's own page? It is a separate Airship, and not an ordinary one either. It seems to be massive, half the size of Kastle Koopa when they were shown together, and doesn't have the ordinary Airship design, either - the SMB3 official artwork for airships portrayed them as we know them today. The creators of the cartoon must have looked at the artwork, as the Koopalings were shown almost exactly like in the game manual, so must have meant the Doomship to be different. There, that's my thoughts. If there's a balanced opinion about this we could turn this into a proposal. Super Shroom TTYD.pngSupershroom QuestionBlock NSMB.jpg+ 20 HP! Yeah!I say 'we' because I've never made a proposal before...

The cartoons' Doomship is based on the in-game SMB3 Airships. The cartoons' Bowser is based on the in-game sprite from Super Mario Bros. and is nothing like the games' Bowser, yet they have the same article. Koopalmier 14:02, 20 July 2010 (UTC)

Yeah, I thought about that, but forgot to mention it. I only really said all that because it appears so many times, it could have a good sized article. Oh, and it's inside is completley original. Super Shroom TTYD.pngSupershroom QuestionBlock NSMB.jpg+ 20 HP! Yeah!

Remove Edit[edit]

I'm probably being really picky about this, but is there a way to remove an edit so it doesn't happen again? Edit in question being the one spammers keep reverting to. (Alex95 (talk) 16:34, 17 February 2016 (EST))

I can think of something but it wouldn't likely be done for something happening on one page. At most, if it keeps happening, the page can be semi-protected. EDIT: It was just protected, so there it is! --TucayoSig.png The 'Shroom 16:36, 17 February 2016 (EST)
If the edits were hidden, they'd just make some new spam. Semi-protection is the best way to cut history clutter. - Walkazo 16:40, 17 February 2016 (EST)
I know it's nearly impossible to stop spammers altogether, but at least we can make it more difficult for them! :) (Alex95 (talk) 16:42, 17 February 2016 (EST))

Donkey Kong series[edit]

Airships (though not the classic Mario kind) feature pretty regularly in Donkey Kong-related games. There's the unnamed zeppelin from Donkey Kong Land, The Flying Krock, the K. Kruizer III, and the King Kruiser IV. Does it merit mention in this article?
The preceding unsigned comment was added by Plastiware (talk).

Not sure. We do cover articles from the Donkey Kong games, but I don't know to what extent. They may be better off referencing the Airships from the Donkey Kong Wiki. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 21:47, 25 May 2016 (EDT)
Those Airships are called Tiki Airships according to the Prima guide so those aren't the same Airships as seen in the Mario series. The RPG Gamer (talk) (edits) MLPJKingBoo.png 21:52, 25 May 2016 (EDT)
I've added a Donkey Kong series section which includes the appearances that you mentioned: it may need to be expanded.

The Rainbow Cruiser[edit]

Resemblance to a specific piece of SMB3 artwork due to wing oars (not exactly an original concept themselves) aside, the Rainbow Cruiser seems to be a very different occasionally-recurring distinct entity, and doesn't have any specific visible connection to Bowser. It should probably be split from this page now that it has a known specific name. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 21:40, March 14, 2019 (EDT)

It is indeed very different from the SMB3 airship as the Rainbow Cruiser has no Bill Blasters or Cannons or Burners. Wynn Liaw Boomerang Mario Artwork - Super Mario 3D World.png 10:20, March 24, 2020
For what it's worth, however, page 90 of Encyclopedia Super Mario Bros. refers to the ship as 「飛行船」 (hikōsen, "airship") in the description for Cruiser Crossing the Rainbow. LinkTheLefty (talk) 11:25, March 24, 2020 (EDT)
Are you sure that's not literal translation? Wynn Liaw Boomerang Mario Artwork - Super Mario 3D World.png 08:03, May 3, 2020 (EDT)
Airship is a ship that flies in the air. To me it fits the bill. [-]€40 vv@(talk · edits)Hyperluigi.gif 08:13, May 3, 2020 (EDT)
