Talk:Boss Rush

Merge with Mario Party 9[edit]

Settledproposal.svg This talk page proposal has already been settled. Please do not edit any of the sections in the proposal. If you wish to discuss the article, do so in a new header below the proposal.

merge 6-0
Now, while I was blocked, I noticed that this proposal failed because what I was proposing was too vague. So then, I'll address these case-by-case.

What makes this game mode so special that it warrants its own article? Honestly, all it is...is a measly game mode that involves playing every single boss minigame in the game. Now, I said in the aforementioned proposal that Baby Luigi can explain it better than I can, but I'll throw in one more example: Mario vs. Luigi is a larger game mode in New Super Mario Bros. with more sophisticated rules, and yet it still doesn't have its own article. Therefore, I propose that we just merge this into the parent article, Mario Party 9, and call it a day, just like for the other game mode articles that I'm proposing be merged.

Oppose[edit]

#Alex95 (talk) - I supported the other similar proposals, but I'm not liking a merge for this one. The chart I think would be too long for the page. It could be converted into a simple list, but I think the images help when readers are looking through the mode. So no from me.

Comments[edit]

Alex95, the chart can be easily organized into a gallery format per Hot-Air Hjinxs, Decathlon modes, or just a simple list in the order. BabyLuigiFire.png Ray Trace(T|C) 16:00, 29 October 2018 (EDT)

The table is just padding the article. It's really a glorified gallery. Mario Green.pngKaBoom! 16:05, 29 October 2018 (EDT)
Okay, good suggestions. I think I'm more for the gallery look. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 17:34, 29 October 2018 (EDT)

I'm kinda in favor of having a general article covering the times in the franchise the idea of a boss rush is used, since it's a common challenge type.... Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 18:29, 29 October 2018 (EDT)

Could work, we could template:main it in the section if you want. BabyLuigiFire.png Ray Trace(T|C) 18:58, 29 October 2018 (EDT)
Makes sense to me. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 19:04, 29 October 2018 (EDT)
