I know that the 11th Hero was the main Dragon Quest rep for the Roster and his actual first appearance was Dragon Quest XI while the other 3 heroes as the 11th Hero's alt costume and those three heroes did came before him as well. Did you guys think we should label all the 4 Heroes their appearance in the Character Infobox since this is like confuses the non-Dragon Quest fans reading this article? I was thinking of something like this version of the character info box for the Hero page, I only have Dragon Quest VII through Dragon Quest XI as of right now and I don't know have the biggest Dragon Quest knowledge including putting the three alts for the latest appearance.

I thought about this when I made the article, but that seems overly large. The opening paragraph details more on the origins of each character, but if this is something others agree on, it can be added. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 15:48, June 13, 2019 (EDT)
Actually, I just thought of something while I was exploring the wiki to look and see what we can do with the four heroes. I think we should like split all the four heroes instead similar like how Alph's article was treated since Alph's only role in the Mario series was Super Smash Bros. games since Nintendo 3DS and maybe have the Hero link will only be DQ XI Hero?King Marth 64 (talk) 19:38, June 13, 2019 (EDT)
Alph's page is currently being discussed on being merged. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 19:42, June 13, 2019 (EDT)

So uh... I feel the need to say I despise the current infobox setup. Would it be a bad thing if we skipped the standard character infobox and just used the fighter infobox for Hero? --MK8DX Waluigi Icon.png Too Bad! Waluigi Time! 14:35, August 20, 2020 (EDT)

Actually, with some more thought (and in respect to the impeding Alph merge in a few hours) what if we set a standard so that the character infobox just covers the main version of the fighter, in this case Eleven/the Luminary? I think the portrayal section should stick around, but other than that it seems a bit excessive to list so much information. Imagine if somewhere down the line we get another Bowser Jr.-type situation where every single alt is a different character, except each with a different first appearance, species, and voice actor. That's going to be a long list, don't you think?
Alternatively, and I don't know if this is even possible, but maybe a special infobox that has tabs on the top so you can click on them and switch through each character? --MK8DX Waluigi Icon.png Too Bad! Waluigi Time! 11:29, September 2, 2020 (EDT)
