They don't really look that similar. -- Sir Grodus

Looks more like the skeleton of a.... Koopa.

Kolorado's father is a Dull Bones, not a Dark Bones. - Cobold (talk · contribs) 14:23, 1 December 2007 (EST)


Dark Bones is playable in Mario Super Sluggers. Why is that not put here? I will add it. -PJ NVM it's already there. -PJ

Relocate Mario Baseball information[edit]

Settledproposal.svg This talk page proposal has already been settled. Please do not edit any of the sections in the proposal. If you wish to discuss the article, do so in a new header below the proposal.

Move Mario Baseball info to Dry Bones 8-0-0
Disclaimer: I am not a translator, so I would like to be confirmed on my work (See this document [1]).

According to this article, Dark Bones' Japanese name in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door is "ブラックカロン" (Burakku Karon), meaning "Black Dry Bones". It checks out from the footage I could find. I also found a different Japanese name for the Dark Bones in Mario Super Sluggers in a video (see above) and transcribed "ブラッディカロン" (Buraddi Karon), which means "Bloody Dry Bones". Strange as that is, the Japanese version of Mario Superstar Baseball names this character simply "Dry Bones", and the English version calls it "Red Dry Bones".

It's clear that the Paper Mario Dark Bones and the Super Sluggers Dark Bones were not intended to be the same character; the matching English localizations are merely a coincidence. It goes without saying that the two are quite distinct from each other visually. Therefore I propose that the Mario Baseball info be cut from this page and placed into Dry Bones' Mario Baseball section. His other color variants (Green, Blue) should also be given more information in that section.

Alternatively, we could split this article into two: one for Paper Mario info and the other for Mario Baseball. However, creating an article for a color variant seems unwarranted to me, considering Dry Bones' other colors don't have their own dedicated pages due to a lack of substantial info for each. That seems to be the precedent set by similar cases (Pianta, Noki, Kritter, etc.)

P.S. The Minecraft Super Mario Mash-up information will remain on the Paper Mario page either way.

Split into Dark Bones (Mario Baseball) and Dark Bones (Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door)[edit]

Do nothing[edit]


Forgive me for any errors, this is my first proposal ever. R.O.B. MKDS map icon DannyTheDingo (talk·contribs) 03:03, September 9, 2021 (EDT)

One thing I'd like to point out is "Bloody Karon" is similar to "Bloody Hone Noko," ie Red Bones. I wouldn't call it an appearance of Red Bones itself, though it might work as a trivia-type detail. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 03:47, September 9, 2021 (EDT)
