Is this page still under contruction? I was thinking about nominating this for FAs. HyperToad

On a first view, the Crystal Caves and Creepy Castle sections of the table are still empty. - Cobold (talk · contribs) 12:03, 24 January 2008 (EST)\
Is that even really needed? It's seems too much like a Game Guide. HyperToad
  • I worked too hard on the Golden banana Guide to have it deleted -- WarioLoaf (talk) 02:45, 23 February 2008 (EST)
Yeah, actually I'd say keep it. I'll fill those slots in when I get time. HyperToad@Donkey Kong 64HT Sig.png

This game doesn't break the Fourth Wall?[edit]

I was looking around the Wiki & I found a...list thing that says "Games That Break The Fourth Wall" &, um...this game wasn't on it. I have evidence suggesting it does.

  1. 1: Cranky says "Silly 3-D Quest"
  2. 2: In the Wrestling Match at the end of the game, the worm/microphone announcer-thing says, "Welcome to the main event of the game!...Brought to you by Nintendo and Rareware in association with K.Rool Enterprises."

Are those not Fourth Wall breaks? I'd've said this somewhere else, but those list things don't exactly have discussion pages, now do they?

And if you don't believe me, go to Youtube. I'm currently uploading a game of Donkey Kong 64 over there.


Yes to #1 and yes to #2. It breaks the fourth wall. I believe there are more fourth wall breaks as well. HyperToad@Donkey Kong 64HT Sig.png


Can I have the a-ok to make articles on minigames? HyperToad@Donkey Kong 64HT Sig.png

Golden Banana Table[edit]

Ok, I think we need to remove the table this section. I know some user(s) worked very hard on it, but the Mariowiki is a Mario encyclopedia, and it shouldn't have the walkthrough on a whole entire game. Plus, it looks like it hasn't been touched in what seems like months (besides when I fixed a bunch of grammar errors this morning). And as of now, the table seems horribly cluttered and still has several spelling and grammar errors in it (even though it could be fixed at some point). Basically, though, I think we should either delete the whole table, or at least merge it with Golden Banana. I not sure if I really need to make a whole proposal about this so... What do other people think? Fawfulfury65

I think that it should be deleted or better merged...--Mateo (Talk · Contributions) 16:57, 14 February 2010 (EST)
I'd prefer to actually merge it, since it could be good in a different article. Or perhaps the table could be in it's own article, "List of Golden Banana Locations in Donkey Kong 64". Maybe? Fawfulfury65

Golden Banana Table Proposal[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.

merge 4-0
Ok, I think its about time I make a proposal about this the table in this terrible section. I propose that we either delete it or put it into its own page called "List of Golden Bananas in Donkey Kong 64". Really, the table is horribly written, hard to understand, and has been incomplete for well over a year, as far as I know. So, yeah. Merge, delete, or keep it the same?

Delete Table[edit]

Make its own page[edit]

  1. BabyLuigiOnFire (talk) It may be horribly written, but it also can be greatly improved on. It also provides great details of game mechanics, such as the Star Coins. It's just too complex and detailed to be in the Donkey Kong 64 article, so I say that we make its own article.
  2. KS3 (talk) per BWOF.
  3. Bloc Partier (talk) - Table is way too big, but it does contain valid information. It would be best if it had its own page and was rewritten.
  4. Fawfulfury65 (talk) Per all.

Keep it the same[edit]


KS3: Golden Banana locations are a whole lot detailed compared to Star Coin locations. Plus, the 3D perspective game also makes it more complex than the 2D New Super Mario Bros. Wii. BabyLuigiFire.png Ray Trace(T|C)

What about Comet medals? KS3 (talk · contribute) 23:02, 7 May 2010 (EDT)
I know nothing of them, since I'm not bothering to get that wretched, non-innovative game. BabyLuigiFire.png Ray Trace(T|C)

Interesting... This proposer was the same person as the person who came up with the discussion above to merge it into the article in the first place. KS3 (talk · contribute) 23:05, 7 May 2010 (EDT)

Yeah, it wasn't getting enough attention so I made it into a proposal. Anyways, Golden Bananas are a lot different than Star Coins. They all found in much more complex locations, and there a a total of 25 in each level, unlike in NSMB, where there are only 3 Star Coins per level. Plus, all 201 Golden Bananas in the same article is pretty hectic. Fawfulfury65 (talk)

Shouldn't that section be merged with Golden Banana? KS3 (talk · contribute) 09:01, 9 May 2010 (EDT)

Possibly... Fawfulfury65

Side note: Some cells of this table probably could be shortened down to give a general idea where a banana can be found, without turning the article into a walkthrough. - Gabumon from the Digimon franchise Gabumon(talk) 06:24, 13 May 2010 (EDT)

That's true but... how would we do that? Some Golden Bananas involve several steps to find. Some also require you to find another Golden Banana first to find it. Also, Catch Card and List of Catch Cards are both separate, so we probably don't have to merge the table with Golden Banana. Fawfulfury65

Proposal to delete article[edit]

Hi Guys,
do you that this article should be delete because it is part of the Donkey Kong universe and nothing to do with the Mario universe? User:McAusten! · talk to me · my edits 17:48, 13 December 2011 (EST)

First, this isn't how a proposal is formatted. Second, see here. Mario4Ever (talk)
Mario began with Donkey Kong, and Donkey Kong characters are in alot of Mario series stuff, so I suggest reading our rules before you do anything else. Current logo of the company Nintendo.64Fan (Discussion)

First "Mario" game in Spanish?[edit]

This seems to be the first game in the greater Super Mario franchise to be translated to Spanish, even before Mario Party 2.

Is it really the case? If so, should we add this fact as a piece of trivia on this article, and correct the Mario Party 2 article which states that "Mario Party 2 is the first Super Mario game to be officially translated to Spanish and Italian"?

(NB: Donkey Kong 64 does not seem to have an Italian version, so the fact remains true for the Italian version of Mario Party 2)
