3 images are enough, arent they? TucayoSig.png ABC

Cannons had quite different appearances throughout the games. There could be more images, however that would require more text or a gallery. - Cobold (talk · contribs) 17:17, 12 February 2009 (EST)
Cannons vary through the games, so couldn't they each be given a seperate article? Hello, I'm Time Turner.
They vary in appearance, but they serve the same purpose and are largely inanimate objects. The only thing I'd call into question on this page is the cannon from Sunshine, because it shoots Bullet Bills. That may suggest it's a Bill Blaster, and that it should be merged to that page. Otherwise, it's a general subject so it's fine where it is. Redstar 14:01, 7 December 2009 (EST)

There are three types of cannons in the article: the cannon that shoots cannonballs, the cannon enemy that shoots cannonballs, and the cannons that shoot you to a new world. Does anyone suggest splitting these into different articles? (There are so many different cannons!!!) Mario jc (talk)

Different Article[edit]

The different types of cannons

1. The ones that take the player to other worlds 2. The ones that fire cannonballs

should be in a different article.
The preceding unsigned comment was added by World 6 (talk).

They are already in two different articles. The ones which take you to other worlds are called Warp Cannons. AND for the millionth time please sign your comments with 4 tildes (~). JackpotPersonolisedMiion3DS.JPGJordan 05:49, 27 August 2012 (EDT)

Mario & Luigi Bowsers inside story Cannons[edit]

AS in the title shouldn't the cannons from these games be included? - Cubeguy2ver.pngCubeguy(talk)

Mario Kart Cannons?[edit]

There are lots of pages for "Cannon", but I cann't found one for the cannons in the Mario Kart series, like the ones in Maple Treeway and Airship Fortress! Should we make a new page for them? Tsunami (talk)

Hmmm.... That's an idea. We could make a section for the Mario Kart series instead. Though I want to see what others think. - Ninelevendo.png BlueLightning.png 05:02, 4 June 2014 (EDT)

Split Red Cannon from this article?[edit]

Question.svg This talk page or section has a conflict or a question that needs to be answered. Please try to help and resolve the issue by leaving a comment.

Should we split the Red Cannon from this article, seeing as how we have multiple Super Mario Maker/Super Mario Maker 2 variants split and/or planned to split? The name comes from Super Mario Maker 2. --Toasty.jpg FanOfYoshi NSMB - Splunkin Model.png 11:19, July 23, 2019 (EDT)

The only thing that's different between the two is cannonball speed and color. Opposing. TheDarkStar MLBISBJJDarkStar.png 12:09, July 23, 2019 (EDT)
What about this? --Toasty.jpg FanOfYoshi NSMB - Splunkin Model.png 12:10, July 23, 2019 (EDT)
That makes no difference since red Cannons can't be customized in the same way that Bull's-Eye Blasters can. Toadette icon CTTT.pngArchivistToadettefont.png(T|C) 12:13, July 23, 2019 (EDT)
Their internal filename is: SenkanHoudaiRed, wonder about the Japanese name though. --Toasty.jpg FanOfYoshi NSMB - Splunkin Model.png 12:17, July 23, 2019 (EDT)
It doesn't matter. Different Japanese name does not mean a split. TheDarkStar MLBISBJJDarkStar.png 12:19, July 23, 2019 (EDT)
I'm out of arguments for the moment. --Toasty.jpg FanOfYoshi NSMB - Splunkin Model.png 12:19, July 23, 2019 (EDT)
It is named separately, and we do split the Koopa Shell object colors (though not Koopa Troopa enemy colors themselves). If Bull's-Eye Blasters were still called Bill Blasters in Super Mario Maker 2 or identified as "Red Bill Blasters", would we have salvaged the article? LinkTheLefty (talk) 12:30, July 23, 2019 (EDT)
If it was Red Bill Blaster, yes, but not if it wasn't distinguished. --Toasty.jpg FanOfYoshi NSMB - Splunkin Model.png 08:53, July 26, 2019 (EDT)
And they're officially named. They're not the same cannon. --Toasty.jpg FanOfYoshi NSMB - Splunkin Model.png 10:20, August 5, 2019 (EDT)
Also, they were not distinguished until Super Mario Maker 2. --Toasty.jpg FanOfYoshi NSMB - Splunkin Model.png 15:09, August 5, 2019 (EDT)
Look, how about this: The Koopas are considered to be the same, while the cannons are considered to be separate. I'm aware that they can't be customized the same way the Bull's-Eye Blaster can. They are two different things. We don't merge two different things. --Toasty.jpg FanOfYoshi NSMB - Splunkin Model.png 12:06, August 8, 2019 (EDT)
They're NOT the same cannon. This seems like not spitting Fire Koopa Clown Car from Koopa Clown Car. --Toasty.jpg FanOfYoshi NSMB - Splunkin Model.png 09:01, August 11, 2019 (EDT)
It's not that they're not the same cannon, it's that there are practically no differences between the cannons. TheDarkStar MLBISBJJDarkStar.png 16:07, August 11, 2019 (EDT)
