Talk:Goomba's Shoe

From the Super Mario Wiki

Goomba's Shoe[edit]

Where was the name "Goomba's Shoe" first used in a game? Hello, I'm Time Turner.

According to TMK, it was already used in the later NES releases of SMB3, which also changed all the original world names to "... Land." The names of the Shoe and worlds were all reverted back in Super Mario All-Stars, but in the latest SMB3 remake for the GBA, Kuribo's Shoe was changed once again to Goomba's Shoe. However, the (more creative) original names of the worlds were kept, only "Castle of Koopa" became "Bowser's Castle." Judging by this, I think we should also use the other world names for the articles rather than "... Land" for every world. Can be discussed here. --Grandy02 08:43, 19 April 2010 (EDT)

Appearance in SMA4 e-level[edit]

Should the appearance in SMA4's e-level be noted? The problem I see is that it wasn't officially released. You can download all the e-reader levels from various places, but since they weren't actually sold, should it be on the site? The level is called Castle a Go-Go.

Actually, never mind. I see it was in the article, but it wasn't clear so I just clarified it a little. Avengah 07:15, 17 January 2011 (EST)

Rename to Kuribo's Shoe[edit]

I think it should be moved to this because thats the name in the game. yoshiyoshiyoshi (talk)

I think the policy says you use the latest released name and in the remake of Super Mario Bros. 3 it's called the Goomba's Shoe there was a proposal about chaining the name [[1]] but it failed to pass Goomba's Shoe15 (talk)

But a new game just came out.Super Mario All Stars 25th Anniversary Edition.Whats it called in that? yoshiyoshiyoshi (talk)

Alright i got in touch with a friend who owns the game and he says they call it the Kuribo's Shoe in the manuel

...*couch* Yes, so it's Kuribo's Shoe in the latest release, meaning we can all go back to calling it that now. LinkTheLefty 13:48, 2 April 2012 (EDT) I will rename this article to Kuribo's Shoe,and NOW!

It was called Kuribo's Shoe in the Wii version of SMAS because that was a untouched port of the original SMAS just like VC games, not because Nintendo decided to revert back to that name. There's no damn reason to go back to calling it Kuribo's Shoe, especially knowing that it's a mistranslation and Goomba's Shoe is not only more accurate, but also the name preferred by Nintendo. I don't see people referring to Final Fantasy III and VI as Final Fantasy II and III respectively just because that's what they were called in their VC re-releases. - Ericss (talk) 22:34, 31 December 2012 (EST)
I'd argue that it was a conscious decision, actually. Considering that the manual was touched up considerably from the SNES release (for example, they retranslated the story sections), I'd say Nintendo certainly had the ability to correct it to the name the localization branch supposedly wanted - they finally changed "Mushroom Retainers" to Toads, after all, and made the item names uniform. Just because it's unchanged doesn't mean it's "wrong". LinkTheLefty (talk) 10:51, 12 August 2013 (EDT)

power up[edit]

is this technically a power up? although the power up song doesn't sound, it acts like ine, giving mario abilities, and losing it by getting hit when walking into a spiny, goomba, etc. User:Boowhoplaysgames

Yes its called one in the original manuel i belive Goomba's Shoe15 (talk)


Technickal posted a comment here about the possibility of renaming the article. I think someone should create a TPP about this. (Not me, because I already have 3 proposals going on.) Personally, I think we should wait for Sticker Star, and see what it is named in that game, because we could rename the article and three months later, have it all be invalid because it was Goomba's Shoe in PMSS. I think if a TPP was created we should have three options, 1. Rename it Kuribo's Shoe 2. Keep it as Goomba's Shoe 3. Wait, and see what it is called in Sticker Star. That's just my opinion, and we should see how this debate turns out. MTORedY.pngYoshi K (talk) Yoshired.png September 2, 2012 15:00 (EDT)

There isn't anything to discuss. Kuribo's Shoe is the Japanese name and the MarioWiki doesn't allow Japanese names to take over English ones (unless of course there was no English name to begin with such as a few Mario games). A similar TPP was to do with renaming King Boo (Super Mario Sunshine) to Boss Boo (his Japanese name). It remained to be called King Boo since MarioWiki only wants English names where possible. So no renaming of this type will happen. Anyway, a redirect is good enough. JackpotPersonolisedMiion3DS.JPGJordan 15:09, 2 September 2012 (EDT)
There's no rule about having more than three proposals running at one time, that's for featured article nominations. MKDS-ROB Artwork.png Master R.O.B.
@Jordan It isn't just the Japanese name, it was the english name in SMB3 and Super Mario All-Stars 25th Anniversary edition. It was a major topic of discussion above. @Master R.O.B. I know, but I personally don't want a big chunk of proposals proposed by me at one time. MTORedY.pngYoshi K (talk) Yoshired.png
Actually we've already had a proposal about this [[2]. Raven Effect (talk)
Wasn't that before Super Mario All-Stars 25th Anniversary Edition though? MTORedY.pngYoshi K (talk) Yoshired.png
Probably. Raven Effect (talk)
Oh, wait, Technickal was just making his point clearer. MTORedY.pngYoshi K (talk) Yoshired.png

Super Mario Maker[edit]

It would be a worthful note that if Mario uses Giant Stiletto, it can break blocks that Giant Goomba's Shoe can not. Also, it can glide similar to Yoshi by attaching Wings on both Big and Small of either Shoe.

Should we make a separate article for "Shoe Goomba"?[edit]

Question.svg This talk page or section has a conflict or a question that needs to be answered. Please try to help and resolve the issue by leaving a comment.

Normally I would be against creating multiple articles about (imo) basically the same thing, but I don't see this as such. In this case, Goomba's Shoe is an item, while Shoe Goomba, which is named so in Super Mario Maker, refers to an enemy riding the said item.

I support a separate Shoe Goomba article.--Platform (talk) 00:06, 21 November 2018 (EST)
I can't remember the warbling voice saying that. But yeah, I'd support it, particularly since it got its own section in the old Perfect Daijiten. Old English source called it "Kuribo's Goomba," as redundant as that seems. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 00:49, 21 November 2018 (EST)
Do we need to propose a split? We should also start collecting names in other languages if gets split.--Platform (talk) 03:49, 25 November 2018 (EST)
This doesn't seem like the kind of thing that would require a proposal, to be honest, given they're different subjects from within the same games. Still, maybe some more input should be given to this conversation. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 04:14, 25 November 2018 (EST)
