Since when is that called Cheese ? Paratroopart.pngKoopa-Troopa

I don't even think it's mentioned in the game, but if so I wasn't called cheese.

Poisonus Water[edit]

Is it related to graffiti in ANY way? SWFlashSWFlash.svg

Water filled with Graffiti. --Reversinator 18:37, 23 June 2011 (EDT)


With the creation of Goo in Luigi's Mansion 3DS, and it likely having a role in LM 3 (Poltergust G-00), the redirect from Goo to here should be changed soon. Maybe not now, but as soon as there's a decent amount of information on it.

The title of this article should really be Goop. When I "overhauled" the article, I found that the basic form of the substance is referred to as goop, which is applicable to most forms of it, and graffiti specifically refers to goop in shapes. This is also indicated in the Japanese name for electric goop, which calls it 「ドロドロ」 (dorodoro, goop) in The Manta Storm but 「ラクガキ」 (rakugaki, graffiti) in Scrubbing Sirena Beach, where it is in the shape of a Boo. To sum it up, graffiti is goop, but not all goop is graffiti. LinkTheLefty (talk) 10:05, November 5, 2019 (EST)

I don't know. Perhaps split? --Toasty.jpg FanOfYoshi NSMB - Splunkin Model.png 10:33, November 5, 2019 (EST)
I think the article does a decent job of covering multiple types of goop since splitting would cause unnecessary confusion; mainly, the current title is a remnant of the older version of the article where a lot of goop was misnamed graffiti. LinkTheLefty (talk) 11:08, November 5, 2019 (EST)
One of the very first lines in the game is "What is this icky paint-like goop?" Looking over the page, I'll agree with the change. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 12:20, November 5, 2019 (EST)
While I agree, the written dialogue for the first mission alone gives a lot of hilarious generic names, like "ooze" and even "yucky." There really doesn't seem to be a "proper" term, though both the not-so-ace attorney and FLUDD call it "graffiti." Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 13:35, November 5, 2019 (EST)
Are every types separate in the Encyclopedia? --Toasty.jpg FanOfYoshi NSMB - Splunkin Model.png 15:32, November 5, 2019 (EST)
@Doc: The translation is a bit inconsistent, but "goop" appears in the script the most out of any term (even much more than graffiti), corresponding most with dorodoro. It also shows up in the manual at one point.
@FanOfYoshi: Everything listed here is in the Encyclopedia as cited (goop and graffiti too, and sans Glorpedo). It doesn't have individual names for the graffiti symbols, Rainbow M, or Bowser's water. LinkTheLefty (talk) 22:39, November 6, 2019 (EST)

Should it be split into separate articles, or that'd cause more confusion? --Toasty.jpg FanOfYoshi NSMB - Splunkin Model.png 09:03, December 14, 2019 (EST)

I think Rainbow M can be accompanied by an article about Level Gates in general, but otherwise most of these follow the "hazardous to touch, spray them away" formula and have notable differences covered fairly well. LinkTheLefty (talk) 09:32, December 14, 2019 (EST)

Rainbow M[edit]

Shouldn't Rainbow M be split from this page? Unlike other types of goop, it serves as a portal to another area, much like the paintings originating in Super Mario 64. Toadette icon CTTT.pngArchivistToadettefont.png(T|C) 12:40, May 3, 2020 (EDT)
