How are these "undead"? Mario Green.pngKaBoom! 15:00, 19 August 2018 (EDT)

Because ghost design. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 15:04, 19 August 2018 (EDT)
But they're not necessarily ghosts. They only look like ghosts and possible youkai (a type of spirit), but the "undead" classification for them is highly misleading. Mario Green.pngKaBoom! 15:09, 19 August 2018 (EDT)

Big Top[edit]

Is it possible that Big Top from Mario Party 8 could be considered a Bonneter? 18:50, June 10, 2019 (EDT)

No. Bonneters are ghosts that resemble hats, which Big Top is not. Big Top is just a regular hat. Plus Bonneters where not around when Big Top first appeared. Doomhiker (talk)Topmini.png 19:00, June 10, 2019 (EDT)
