Banzai bills also appeared in the Super Mario Bros. Film, but had a small role. Should this be added? Pokebub (talk) 17:55, 17 April 2013 (EDT)

We're supposed to cover information from the film separate from everything else because its lack of faithfulness to Mario. Unless it's a name or a mention, then don't mention it.

So since we decided Hotel Mario's "Toad" was a misidentified 1-up Mushroom, should we do the same for this? This is clearly based off Bullet Bill's original artwork, is at a normal size for Bullet Bill, and essentially acts like the diagonal Bullet Bills from Super Mario World. This seems to be a mistake on the manual writers' part. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 15:59, May 6, 2020 (EDT)

Maybe you should write a proposal about this. This is Bull's-Eye Banzai all over again. BabyLuigiFire.png Ray Trace(T|C) 14:39, September 16, 2020 (EDT)
The difference here is that Hotel Mario's "Toad" is also identified as an "Extra Mario Mushroom", which was a name used for 1-Up Mushroom in Super Mario World material. Technically, what's called a Banzai Bill in the manual is still visibly a bit longer than a common Bullet Bill, which also had inconsistent physical characteristics at the time. Besides, some of the game's designs aren't exactly 1:1, such as Spiny or Mecha Koopa. LinkTheLefty (talk) 10:42, September 19, 2020 (EDT)
