Sort of confusing[edit]

Bullet Bills are living creatures, right? Well, if they're made at a factory, they wouldn't be very living. Unless Mario Party 5 was set in an era where living things can easily be fabricated. Hello, I'm Time Turner.

Whether Bullet Bills are living or not differs throughout media. (Or the "Bullet Bills" in one media, such as Super Mario Sunshine, are just artificial imitations) But, I don't read anything about a factory on this page, and nor do I understand why you're asking.

In Mario Party Advance, they were clearly seen as living. Also, I'm asking this since they're fighting inside a Bullet Bill-making factory. I mean, look inside the tower. Hello, I'm Time Turner.
Well, the Mario series has masses of machine-made creatures with an apparently artificial intelligence and consciousness no less complex than those of a living being. Think about TEC-XX, or the Smithy Gang. The origin of a creature seems to not matter much in the marioverse. - GabuGabu.png Gabumon(talk) 20:16, 9 December 2009 (EST)
I'm just curious, that's all. Hello, I'm Time Turner.
What I am trying to say is: The line between living beings and machines blurs in the Marioverse, so an unambiguous answer cannot be given. - GabuGabu.png Gabumon(talk) 20:24, 9 December 2009 (EST)
It doesn't really look like a factory to me. If it was, I wouldn't take much heed of a Mario Party series game, anyways, since they go off on their own canon even more than the main series does... As for in-universe, I don't see why an enemy can't be both artificial and alive. Redstar 20:26, 9 December 2009 (EST)
