Talk:Dr. Mario World

From the Super Mario Wiki

Early Release[edit]

I'm not autoconfirmed at the moment, so I can't edit the page, but as seen here and here. There's levels and assistants to be added as well. Iceblock715 (talk) 14:52, July 9, 2019 (EDT)

Dr characters[edit]

Considering that this game has a bunch of doctor characters not strictly limited to only Mario or Nurse Peach any more, I feel like the ones introduced in this game shouldn't warrant articles separate from one other, as it will cause a huge mess of navigation.

I don't really think that each character requires two separate pages depending on whether they're wearing a doctor costume or not. They still have the same lore and they aren't different characters in the same vain that Baby Mario is different from Mario, who is different from Paper Mario. I think the only thing that warrants Dr. Mario having his own page is the major differences between him and Mario in Smash.

I've wrote a proposal concerning this shortly after. You can vote in it if you want. BabyLuigiFire.png(T|C) 15:50, July 10, 2019 (EDT)
I'm wondering if Dr. Luigi should be kept as a separate article because he appeared in other games, but that's the only reason for it. Dr. Mario should definitely stay separate. Super Mushroom Artwork - Super Mario 3D World.png Obsessive Mario Fan MK8DX Mario Icon.png 15:57, July 10, 2019 (EDT)
I have a feeling that's not a strong enough reason to keep him separate because in the future, these doctors may also appear in future games. Not even Nurse Toadstool has her own article and she has more than one appearance. BabyLuigiFire.png(T|C) 16:34, July 10, 2019 (EDT)

Unused assistants[edit]

This really goes for all the unused assistants' articles: I think their pictures in the infoboxes shouldn't be their artwork from this game just yet, because they haven't been implemented in the game yet.

King Bob-omb Level 2[edit]

Can't edit the protected page myself, but I just unlocked this:

Stage Mode: "Grants 10% chance viruses (2) will be eliminated on stage start."

Versus Mode: "If you send viruses to your opponent, grants 8% chance of sending an extra row."

All unreleased doctors should get a mention in their articles[edit]

Data relating to those characters can be found in the game, and especially with their assets done and all, coinciding with other mined aspects of the game such as the world maps designating a particular theme and their unique abilities have been mined. I fail to see that just because it wasn't officially released doesn't mean it's data not at least worth mentioning. I do agree that we should rewrite loaded language such as "intending to be playable at some point" and I got a bit cocky myself when writing the babies' sections on terms of playable plausbility (and I still subjectively stand by my speculation) but there's no good reason to remove valid information just because Nintendo didn't give the greenlight and presentation on their reveal despite that their data exists and that's something MarioWiki should do. The fact that Mario Tennis Aces was used as an analogy (though I'm not versed with how its mined data was presented but iirc it didn't have completed assets like Dr. Mario World did) means that we shouldn't have deleted datamined character info from Mario Tennis Aces from the first place and rather rewrote information to be less speculative.

I agree that content retrieved from the game's files should be covered when we cover pre-release and unused content. What comes to mind specifically are the unused CSS icons for Petey Piranha and Hammer Bro from Mario Kart Wii. These were extracted from the game files, not unlike the Doctor assets from this game, and so when we cover those, we should cover these. Not to mention we've been using internal game files for confirmation of many enemy names and even planet names from the Galaxy games, so this is all valid.
