"Their Japanese name implies that they are shyer than the normal Boos, and, thus, may not be the same enemy." So why are we treating them as such? I'm neutral on the issue right now, but I'd like to see if this is worth splitting. PMCS Mustard Cafe Sign.png Scrooge200 (talk) 15:31, August 25, 2020 (EDT)

I lean towards keeping it as-is for similar reasons as this (I've mentioned the “transcreation” concept a few times, which we recently found out even happened with Fishin' Boo). That said, it's not the exact same palette - Dark Boos have blue tongues in The Thousand-Year Door and red tongues in Partners in Time. LinkTheLefty (talk) 15:40, August 25, 2020 (EDT)
I'm also neutral on the issue; they're similar enough splitting them is not a high priority for me, along with the outright misnamed-in-Japanese Boo Guys (though that may have been a space issue). Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 16:02, August 25, 2020 (EDT)
I don't get it. What are we splitting? --JumpPumpkinPlant SMW.pngDarkNightSMW Pumpkin Plant.png (Boo!) 16:10, August 25, 2020 (EDT)
We'd be splitting the Paper Mario series Dark Boos and the Partners in Time Dark Boos. PMCS Mustard Cafe Sign.png Scrooge200 (talk) 16:18, August 25, 2020 (EDT)
Ok, thanks. --JumpPumpkinPlant SMW.pngDarkNightSMW Pumpkin Plant.png (Boo!) 16:20, August 25, 2020 (EDT)

Honestly, I'm not sure about this one. Master of Masters KHXBC.png Keyblade Master
