Talk:Coin (Diddy Kong Racing DS)

From the Super Mario Wiki, the Mario encyclopedia

Are you sure it has the Rare-Ware logo? Rare-Ware doesn't belong to Nintendo anymore. Paper Jorge ( Talk·Contributions)·

I have the instruction book, and yes, it does have the Rareware logo on it. It inhabits the entire middle portion of the coin, and I've also noticed a tiny (and I mean TINY) TM on the coin; it's tiny and gold-yellow in color like the Rareware logo. I admit, it is surprising to find the Rareware logo on it though. I'll try to find a picture of it, but I can assure you that it is the actual Rareware logo. — Stooben Rooben Possibly an error left over from the first DKR?
There's a tiny picture of it here: Images 32-34 have the pics. It's the best I could find for now, but I'll keep looking. — Stooben Rooben D'oh!
Ah, ok, thanks. I was surprised by this as well with the whole Microsoft business. Paper Jorge ( Talk·Contributions)·
No problem! I feel bad for Rare, Ltd. though if Microsoft "Vistafies" them. So the article can stay then? — Stooben Rooben Sorry it's a stub. :(
Oh of course. Very, very shorts stubs are deleted. This seems good enough. I hope Nintendo one days goes in Microsoft studious and just saves Rare from the evil. Paper Jorge ( Talk·Contributions)·
I sure hope so. Rare's done a lot of good for the DK series. But, thanks for letting it stay. :) — Stooben Rooben Go for 10,000 edits, Paper Jorge! You're almost there!
Almost there, eh? I noticed sysops (like me) have the most edits. Paper Jorge ( Talk·Contributions)·
That's true. It's just such a large number! — Stooben Rooben I'm about 8000 away from that.

Move to Rareware Coin or Split[edit]

split 0-4-0

As soon as I saw this article, I knew that this had to be done. This article is about both the coins from Diddy Kong Racing DS and the Rareware Coin from Donkey Kong 64, yet the title is Coin (Diddy Kong Racing DS) instead of the more appropriate Rareware Coin. I'm not asking to split the two coins into separate articles; both are silver coins with the Rareware insigna, and both wouldn't make very lengthy articles alone. However, if they are going to stay together we need to have a better title. I think that Rareware Coin would fit the bill nicely and represent the coin's appearance in both games much better.

Move to Rareware Coin[edit]

Split into Two Articles[edit]

  1. Lumastar (talk) Per Baby Luigi.
  2. Mario (talk) If Nintendo Coin exists, then a split containing Rareware Coin, the counterpart to the Nintendo Coin would make sense. Additionally, they items with different names and different purposes, so yeah, a split makes sense.
  3. Pseudo-dino (talk) These probably aren't supposed to be the same item, and they have completely different functions.
  4. LinkTheLefty (talk) Agreed. Rareware Coin shouldn't have been given another game's identifier, and they have entirely different purpose and 'rarity' in both titles.

Oppose[edit]

Comments[edit]

Aren't coins called..."coins" in Diddy Kong Racing DS? If that's an official name for the coins in Diddy Kong Racing DS, a split would be better. BabyLuigiFire.png Ray Trace(T|C) 13:18, 23 February 2015 (EST)

I checked, and they are. I'll add a split option and update the proposals page. Lumastar (talk) SMG GreenLuma.jpg
