passed 7-1
Two different items with different names and purposes. Why were these even merged in the first place?

Proposer: Niiue (talk)
Deadline: January 18, 2016, 23:59 GMT


  1. Niiue (talk) Per proposal.
  2. Walkazo (talk) - Per proposal and consistency with all the other items that have individual pages.
  3. RandomYoshi (talk) – Per all.
  4. LudwigVon (talk) Per all.
  5. Time Turner (talk) Per all.
  6. Tsunami (talk) Per proposal and Walkazo in the comments.
  7. Bazooka Mario (talk) It has its own sprite and is peddled as a separate item and stuff. It should get its own page.


  1. Wildgoosespeeder (talk) I hate it when a split happens to an already short article. That just means we have two even shorter articles. The two will just look like {{stub}}s.


Is there a difference between 3 single Gold Bar and Gold Bar x3? Because, if not, why should this be split and not Triple Mushroom, Triple Bananas, Triple Green Shell and Triple Red Shell?--LudwigVon Sig.png(TALK) 14:24, 4 January 2016 (EST)

Yeah, in TTYD, three single Gold Bars cost less than a 3x Gold Bar (3 x 110 = 330 coins vs. 350 coins), although both sell for 300 coins (ripoff); "Gold Bar + Point Swap = Mushroom" but "3x Gold Bar + Point Swap = Gold Bar", which is the only recipe involving 3x Gold Bar afaik, whereas other recipes can involve regular Gold Bars, including turning Golden Leaves into Gold Bars (while 3x Gold Bar can only be bought, never made). Plus 3x Gold Bar only appears in TTYD while Gold Bars are in SPM and both Luigi's Mansion games too. - Walkazo 14:38, 4 January 2016 (EST)
I have the notion that triple green shells and whatever should be split too. They're distinct items with their distinct names in Mario Kart (you don't pick up three item boxes to get them) and they have a unique function different from their singular shelled counterpart (they cover you up). They're also Koopa and Paratroopa's special item in DD. BabyLuigiFire.png Ray Trace(T|C) 15:55, 4 January 2016 (EST)
I'd be all for that too. We split Giant Bananas, so why not these too. Small articles =/= stubs as long as they have all the info we do have about the subject, after all, so what's the harm? - Walkazo 16:29, 4 January 2016 (EST)
Yeah, I'll probably make proposals for the various "Triple" items pretty soon. Niiue (talk) 18:25, 4 January 2016 (EST)
Well, for your information, we have a whole ecosystem of triple items. Mario Green.pngKaBoom! 20:28, 4 January 2016 (EST)
