Talk:Dark Koopa

From the Super Mario Wiki, the Mario encyclopedia

When has it been officially stated that Dark Koopas are insane? It's not in either PM tattles nor the PM:TTYD bestiary, so was it mentioned in-game somewhere? If not, just because they spin around and make people dizzy doesn't mean they're touched-in-the-head themselves, and that inference should be removed. - Walkazo 22:31, 4 December 2008 (EST)

That's true. Why would they be insane just because they make people dizzy? Lemmy Koopa Fan (talk)

Or for that matter, Punk. 30STM.PNG This Is War 30STM.PNG 15:01, 22 February 2011 (EST)

Good point: they don't seem more "Punk" than any of the other enemy Koopas (they all have shades and spiked collars and whatnot; the only difference is the purple shells)... - Walkazo 15:37, 22 February 2011 (EST)
Yeah. Maybe they're insane because they wear sunglasses in the dark. That's what the article seems to imply. 30STM.PNG This Is War 30STM.PNG 15:42, 22 February 2011 (EST)
Maybe, but it's not our place to imply anything: the only official info regarding the sunglasses is the tattle asking "what's the point?", not saying "they're insane for wearing sunglasses". Seeing as no one gave me a good reason for why they're officially "insane" over the past two years, I'm going to go ahead and remove that speculation. I'll take down the Punk bit too, while I'm at it. - Walkazo 12:35, 23 February 2011 (EST)
Yeah, that's kind of what I meant, but thanks anyway. 30STM.PNG This Is War 30STM.PNG 07:23, 24 February 2011 (EST)

Split into Dark Koopa and Dark Koopa (Super Paper Mario)[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.

split 5-1

Okay, I'm just going to say the reasons I think this should be split.
1. The Dark Koopas have different stats.
2. They have different looks.
3. It's been done with Dark Koopatrol.

Proposer: Mr.C (talk)
Deadline: 2 March 2010, 23:00 Extended: 16, March 2010, 23:59


  1. Red Shell 68066vr (talk) Per proposal.
  2. Walkazo (talk) - Per proposal: they're different enough to warrant different articles.
  3. Reversinator (talk) Well, it should be split.
  4. Bloc Partier (talk) - Per Walkazo.
  5. Mr.C (talk) - Gah! I forgot to put my vote on here! Oh, and per proposal.

Don't Split[edit]

  1. Zero777 (talk) I am Zero! That's not a good reason that we should split them because there states are different, and there's not different in looks between them besides the SPM one. It would be a good idea to merge both of the Dark Koopatrols. Zero signing out.


This doesn't need a proposal. The only reason I didn't split the rest is because I suck at spliting. Reversinator (talk)

Oh, I guess I should get rid of this then? Mr.C (talk)

Do not. I already voted. Red Shell 68066vr (talk)

The Dark Koopatrols definitely shouldn't be merged, since they have different names in original Japanese and other languages. I don't know about the Dark Koopa, though. --Grandy02 15:28, 25 February 2010 (EST)

The Super Paper Mario "dark" enemies are all different from any preceding "dark" enemies, excluding Dark Boo. Reversinator (talk)

K'mon Reversinator, split it. KS3 (talk · contribute)

Fine, fine. I'll try my best, but it won't be good. Reversinator (talk)
