Since the Mario Party 8 Captain Shy Guy has been in one game while this Captain Shy Guy has been in two, should this one get priority? PMCS Mustard Cafe Sign.png Scrooge200 (talk) 17:33, January 2, 2020 (EST)

No, just like Captain Goomba doesn't get priority over Captain Goomba. --Magma. (talk) 18:25, June 24, 2020 (EDT)
The proposal done to decide the priority for the Captain Goombas reads "both characters appear in only one game each. At this point, I suggest keeping the identifier for now until either appears in another game, then we can truly decide what to do with the page titles." Now that this Captain Goomba is in both SS+BM and BIS+BJJ, I think it's time to bring this up again. PMCS Mustard Cafe Sign.png Scrooge200 (talk) 18:36, June 24, 2020 (EDT)
Does the naming policy have any guidelines for this sort of thing? Master of Masters KHXBC.png Keyblade Master
Not really. Identifier priority is just something that gets discussed. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 19:01, June 24, 2020 (EDT)
I don't really think being in one extra game, especially when we're dealing with amounts of appearances this low to begin with, is enough for identifier priority. Personally I would oppose a proposal to rename them. --MK8DX Waluigi Icon.png Too Bad! Waluigi Time! 19:03, June 24, 2020 (EDT)
Yeah, since I've never played a Mario Party game before and I have played the RPGs several times, I feel it would be out of personal bias if I voted for this. So I think we should play it safe and keep the names as is. Master of Masters KHXBC.png Keyblade Master
