Split the two Cookbooks?[edit]

I imagine that this would be slightly more contentious than everything else I've split up to this point, so...

Why are the two Cookbooks in the exact same article? The only thing definitively similar about them is that both are the key items necessary to allow the chefs in both games to cook with two ingredients. That's it. Thousand-Year Door's Cookbook even has the distinction of being written by the implied Maitre Delish, so I think they should both be split for those reasons.

They do exactly the same thing. Splitting them would be pointless. TheDarkStar MLBISBJJDarkStar.png 23:49, February 9, 2020 (EST)
Yes, one's a cookbook you give to a Toad chef to let her cook with two items, the other's a cookbook you give to a Toad chef to let her cook with two items. Splitting these would be in clear violation of once and only once, because they are, for all intents and purposes, the same thing. Why should one having a specified author make any difference? All that matters is its function and name, which are the same. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 23:53, February 9, 2020 (EST)
I'd split this on the sheer principle that, well, they're both two different objects in two different games. The TTYD one has a whole sidequest about it. By this logic, we should merge every key because, well, you just find 'em and open doors with them. PMCS Mustard Cafe Sign.png Scrooge200 (talk) 00:40, February 10, 2020 (EST)
They're the same item in two different games tho? It's not a "key" type item as there is no further classification like there is with keys. It's just "cookbook." Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 01:21, February 10, 2020 (EST)
It's still a key item, which doesn't necessarily have to include keys at all. Toadette icon CTTT.pngArchivistToadettefont.png(T|C) 09:48, February 10, 2020 (EST)
We don't split Star Pieces, or Badges. We also don't split emails in the Mailbox SP. There's no reason to split amongst the game game OR different games because it just creates more inconsistency. They are identical objects. They serve the same purpose. Their method of obtainment might be somewhat different, but that's what sections per game is for. Keep this page together.
