Does anyone here think that the GBA remake of this game and the other two games should be split into their own article, like the Super Mario Advance article? Fawfulfury65

Personally, I even think the sections in the Super Mario Advance article should be merged with the respective games for the sake of clarity. --Grandy02 17:17, 22 January 2010 (EST)

Relevance[edit]

Are Donkey Kong games really all that relevant to Mario, save for the early ones for the NES? WarioLand 16:56, 26 January 2010 (EST)

Yes. See Mariowiki:Coverage Fawfulfury65

FIX IT NOW![edit]

I recently found the Animal buddy and Item sections are not written properly. Sombody fix that? User:Mecha-Boss Unit

Why aren't they written properly? Also, the sections aren't even finished yet. Fawfulfury65

Make Diddy's Dash its own Page[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.

no quorum 1-1
I know that Diddy's Dash was originally its own page, and it was short, but now looking at how the page was originally created, I have plenty to add. For instance, the original place mentions nothing of Crank Kong's contribution, as he gives feedback on the player's time or stops the player if they can't finish the race within the five minutes. It's also not mentioned how the clock can be frozen if the player kills multiple enemies. Another point to add to the page would be that all DK Barrels are replaced with crate barrels, and how the K-O-N-G Letters do not appear. A fourth point is that the levels can be unlocked when the world there are in is reached in Story Mode. It's also a game mode in a certain game, I know multiple pages of game modes or mini games.

Support[edit]

  1. DKPetey99 (talk) Per proposal. There is plenty information to add on to the original page before its redirect.

Oppose[edit]

  1. Baby Luigi (talk) I still think this can be perfectly incorporated into this article. And if that's the case, as Lefty said, then we should give Balloon Battle, Coin Runners, and Super Duel Mode its own page.

Comments[edit]

What makes this game mode deserving of a page more than, say, Super Duel Mode from Mario Party 5? But I suppose you can compare it to Boost Mode? I've never played the game, so I can't offer much help.

In The Air Tonight[edit]

Not sure where this would go, but is it worth mentioning that the drum beat for Bayou Boogie is very similar to the drum beat from Phil Collins's 1981 song In The Air Tonight? I know Nintendo has taken from popular songs before (New Age Retro Hippie's song from Earthbound), so I don't think it's too far-fetched. Magikrazy (talk)

Boss stages[edit]

Since we have the Donkey Kong Land 2 levels split from the ones in this game, should we also do that for the boss stages? So far, only two articles for DKC2 boss stages have been made (Kreepy Krow (level) and Krocodile Kore), and they include both the DKC2 and DKL2 versions of these levels. Also, what about Stronghold Showdown? PMTTYD Dark Bones.pngSig.png 01:47, 30 December 2018 (EST)

Given both include differences, I'd say they too should have separate articles for consistency's sake. I was going to note that before, but forgot about it. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 02:32, 30 December 2018 (EST)

Title screen[edit]

"Diddy's Kong Quest" is actually hyphenated on the title screen. Should we note this on the article? TheDarkStar MLBISBJJDarkStar.png 13:03, September 22, 2019 (EDT)

Sure, why not. Doomhiker (talk)Topmini.png 13:33, September 22, 2019 (EDT)
