This doesn't deserve an article. Hello, I'm Time Turner.

This also brings up the question of whether we need Ax. --Garlic Man (talk)
An Ax can at least be interacted with; you have to touch it to use it, so I suppose it qualifies as an item. The cork in the Sub-Con vase only appears during the ending cutscene, where the player's character pulls it out of the vase automatically, so it doesn't even qualify as that.--vellidragon 09:58, 11 January 2010 (EST)
I agree. The Ax is relevant for gameplay, but the Cork just makes a brief appearance in the ending. --Grandy02 11:23, 11 January 2010 (EST)
Doesn't a cork make an appearance in Super Mario Sunshine on the first mission of Noki Bay. You knoe, when the Monty Mole clogs up the waterfall with a giant cork and mains a cannon located on it.--FREAK ~Game GameBros.png Freak~ OUT!
True, but it's still pretty minor. Hello, I'm Time Turner.
Well I think it plays a major role in the Noki Bay missions, because the waterfall is the only way to access underwater, but it is being plugged by a cork. Oh and also a cork appears in level 2-6 of New Super Mario Bros. where it is blocking a pipe to the exit.--FREAK ~Game GameBros.png Freak~ OUT!
Okay, there is no need for deletion now.--FREAK ~Game GameBros.png Freak~ OUT!
Kudos to Gamefreak and Lindsayoris. Article looks a lot more legitimate than it did this morning lol. --Garlic Man (talk)
