Merge to Mouse (Luigi's Mansion)[edit]

Hi, this is my first time suggesting two pages be merged. I personally believe Blue Mouse and Purple Mouse should merge into a new page, Mouse (Luigi's Mansion), as they are no different from each other aside from their color. Gold Mice are a different story, since they actually relinquish treasure. Results May Vary (talk) 13:58, 31 October 2018 (EDT)

Sounds good to me, given this seems like a red-green Troopa situation, and that's how it already is with the Bats, which also act differently from each other. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 14:34, 31 October 2018 (EDT)
The 3DS version states that the Blue Mouse "wanders around in the hallways" and the Purple Mouse "can scurry through walls" so they do have a noted behavior difference, but as Doc suggested it's not much different than how we (generally) cover the enemy colors. Though, I'd include Gold Mouse as well. LinkTheLefty (talk) 09:55, 1 November 2018 (EDT)
If we were to do that we should merge Speedy Spirit to Gold Ghost, which we probably shouldn't. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 13:54, 1 November 2018 (EDT)
We do have the Luigi's Mansion 2 version of the Gold Mouse in the same article as that game's mouse, however, so my idea was to turn the Gold Mouse article into a disambiguation page (although either way, "Mouse (ghost)" should be the article for the Luigi's Mansion ghost mice).

I honestly forgot there was already a talk on this. Anyways, I think merging Gold Mouse would too be perfectly fine, as Speedy Spirit isn't treated as a color variant. That being said, we usually split off coin-related gold enemies with separate names, which Gold Mouse has but the DM enemies lack. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 16:25, September 26, 2020 (EDT)
