Talk:Chocolate Island

From the Super Mario Wiki, the Mario encyclopedia

Do you think I could put Chocolate Island in the desert category? I've always thought it was supposed to be a desert (the ground looks sandy and stuff), but no official sources say it's a desert. Ruby Star TTYD.png CrystalYoshi Yoshi Egg Sprite.png

Hm... I always thought of it as some sort of canyon or mountain range... Guess you can't say that without a doubt... - GabuGabu.png Gabumon(talk) 22:06, 20 September 2009 (EDT)

There's actually a piece of official artwork that makes it look like a desert. One second, I'll find it. Here we go... [1] Ruby Star TTYD.png CrystalYoshi Yoshi Egg Sprite.png

Well it is possible that it could be a desert, but on the other hand in some occasions it looks like a mountain range or like something completely different. It would be helpful if it were officially called desert somewhere... - GabuGabu.png Gabumon(talk) 22:44, 29 September 2009 (EDT)
To be technical, deserts are just areas with very little precipitation: they don't necessarily have to be sandy and flat, just dry. However, we shouldn't categorize based on semantics, nor should we rely on individual interpretations of images (personally, I thought the picture made the ground look muddy, not dry). Bottom line is: we have no official proof that it's a desert, ergo we cannot categorize it as one. - Walkazo 23:40, 29 September 2009 (EDT)
Ok, Walkazo summed it up pretty good I guess. - GabuGabu.png Gabumon(talk) 23:52, 29 September 2009 (EDT)

According to the Super Mario Kart manual: "A dirt course in the desert." --Mariofan5000 (talk) 07:42, 20 July 2013 (EDT)
