Talk:Heroes of Light

From the Super Mario Wiki, the Mario encyclopedia

When is "Heroes of Light" used? I just remember "Four Heroes" from the game. YELLOWYOSHI398

They use Heros of light on one or two occasions. GreenKoopa - Comments or questions?

Oh, OK. Would Four Heroes be more common/a better article name, though? I think it was used a bunch. YELLOWYOSHI398
I wouldn't suggest m oving it to four heros, because officially its Heros of Light, their just called four heros as an abbreveation or a pronoun or something. GreenKoopa - Comments or questions?
Even still, though, it should be at Four Heroes if that's more common. That's what we go by- common names and not more proper ones; Squirps is at Squirps and not Squirp Korogaline Squirpina. YELLOWYOSHI398
Yeah, but that's different, becuase Squirp Korogaline Squirpina is too long to remember.M&L Beware my fury! 20:36, 23 January 2012 (EST)

Is this article really needed?[edit]

It's pretty much just blurbs about each of the playable characters in the game and some information that could easily be found on the Light Prognosticus page. If we do need this, is there some way to expand it?

Considering this is a title that describes something, we should have it for something. The Light Prognosticus page is more about the book at what it says, whereas the Heroes of Light article should be about the characters and their actions and their attributes and-- It could really just redirect to Super Paper Mario#Playable characters, tbh.

So does this need a proposal?

Probably. Or you can just let this discussion continue with other users. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 22:16, 17 April 2018 (EDT)
A lot which seems useless to an experienced user can be very useful to a new one... Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 22:23, 17 April 2018 (EDT)
Not sure I understand, Doc.

Ohhhhhhhh, when I was young I didn't have~
A Nintendo System, oh so sad~
I grew up with a PS2~
Which was fine and all, but I didn't know stuff about Mario until I found this place and every little article was meaningful for me theeeeeeen~
Now do you understand? Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 22:33, 17 April 2018 (EDT)
Yes, perhaps. But pretty much all this article does is give redundant information. If someone wnats to know who the Heroes of Light are, a redirect could take them to Super Paper Mario#Playable characters, as Alex95 suggested, which could possibly read something like, "The player controls the four Heroes of Light during the game, starting with Mario, with the other heroes joining throughout the game." Really, they could just read about or play SPM. We don't need a whole page.

Hey, it took me like 7 months to earn enough money for a Wii back in the day (or five? Or four? I can't remember). If it were to redirect to the playable character section, I'd recommend bolding that term when it is used. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 22:42, 17 April 2018 (EDT)
That seems fine. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 22:43, 17 April 2018 (EDT)
So do I have the go-ahead?
Ultimate Mr L sig.png Ultimate Mr. L (Talk-Contribs-Stats) 22:46, 17 April 2018 (EDT)
Sure. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 22:47, 17 April 2018 (EDT)
