Anyone have a picture of the full Block version? TheGreatBlockyBoo 17:19, 19 June 2008 (EDT)

Boo Block[edit]

Shouldn't this be moved to Boo Block considering that's the most recent English name (if it's actually official, anyway)? Binarystep (talk) 05:30, 1 April 2015 (EDT)

Boo Buddy Block is official as it comes from the Mario Mania Nintendo Player's Guide, but Boo Block may not be since the page neglects to mention which Yoshi's Story guide it came from, and if not Nintendo Power then it'd basically be irrelevant for the article title under the naming policy. Assuming it isn't - while consistency is nice, it shouldn't be moved like that; like Hyper Spiky Goomba over "Hyper Spiked Goomba" or Para-Goomba over "Para-Galoomba", a species name change only affects the name of the species, not its varieties. Currently, Boo Buddy Block to Boo Block would technically be an unofficial move. (Search me as to why all the different types of Boos from Super Mario World get their own pages and they're not organized together like Chargin' Chucks.) LinkTheLefty (talk) 15:03, 2 April 2015 (EDT)
There's a definite difference in behaviour between them, but perhaps the different Boos are a bit too close to the Koopas and their shell colours. On the other hand, we have Dancing Spear Guy. If, hypothetically, a proposal were to be formed about doing something with the Boos, which Boos would be included? Hello, I'm Time Turner.
I'm not sure which ones should be merged. I'd say Boo Buddy Block should stay seperate, as it acts way too different than regular Boos. Circling Boo Buddies could probably be merged, if only because other ghost enemies do the same thing, but don't have seperate pages for their formations. Boo Buddy Swarm should probably stay split considering we have Shy Squad and Fuzzy Horde. As for the others...not sure. Binarystep (talk) 21:00, 2 April 2015 (EDT)
