Is there any evidence of Garf being the brother of Gus, or is that purely speculation? -- Son of Suns (talk)

In the beginning, when Garf and Gus get beaten up by the Piantas, Gus says "Stay down, Bro!". — Stooben Rooben 23:34, 2 January 2009 (EST)
Well, that can be misleading. When guys are really good friends, they sometimes call eachother "bro". SJ derp :P
I'll see if I can find more proof. I know Goombella mentioned something like "I think they're brothers" in a tattle for Garf. If I can't find any solid proof in my 6 game guides, then I suppose it could be deemed as speculation. — Stooben Rooben 23:46, 2 January 2009 (EST)
At the very least we can say they may be brothers in articles, based on the quote (and based on the fact they fought another pair of brothers). -- Son of Suns (talk)

I found this quote from "Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door professional gaming guide". It's got around 200 pages, containing just about everything in the game. Here's what it says:

"Gus is an enemy found in Rogueport, and the only one at that. [...] After defeating him in battle, he'll head back to Ishnail's hideout with his brother, Garf. This is the second time the pair are seen together, the other time being in the very beginning of the game when they are pummeled by Pianta Syndicate brothers, Tony and Vinny. [...]"

I dunno if that helps or not. I got this guide a few years ago; my dad's boss gave it to me (along with several other random game guides) when he saw I had a GameCube. It has the Nintendo seal on the bottom right corner of the cover, so I'm assuming it's official. — Stooben Rooben 00:10, 3 January 2009 (EST)

Well, if it has the seal, then it's official. Good enough for me. SJ derp :P
Cool. Now we can say they are brothers. -- Son of Suns (talk)
