Aren't the adults' actions when hit nonintentional? Wa Yoshihead.png TC@Y 11:06, 2 January 2007 (EST)

Yes. They don't come at you. They merely walk back and forth. -- Son of Suns


Would this article fit in Category:Parents? That's sort of a ridiculous question, but they do always come in groups with a mother. --YellowYoshi398 19:58, 16 March 2007 (EDT)

I've... kind of got a feeling that they qualify. (I also had a feeling that no one was going to respond...) I'll add them to the category; if anyone feels that they don't belong, I won't mind if they remove them from it. --YellowYoshi398 20:29, 16 March 2007 (EDT)
Yes, they of course do belong. Paper Jorge ( Talk·Contributions)·

No need to split.[edit]

We should not split, they are the same thing, maybe Yoshi's Woolly World and Poochy and Yoshi's Woolly renames them and redesigns the chicks, which lack a pants, legs and wings, and instead of these three, they have green spots on their body, but they are basically the same thing! The reason why the Huffin-Puffin is called Fluffin-Puffin in this game, is that because the games consists largely (whom less realistic in Poochy and Yoshi's Woolly World due to being in Nintendo 2DS and Nintendo 3DS) of realistic yarn, cotton, fluff, papercraft and sewing. -- 15:17, 23 July 2018 (EDT)

I don't know a lot about the Yoshi's Island games, but based solely on the information given and the visuals, it just looks like a redesign to me. They were repurposed to fit the "craft world" aspect, with the name change meant to reflect this. That said, it does seem like they act differently from the earlier allies. Group the action changes with the name and redesign, it does appear to be a different character. I think I'm going to be neutral on this one for now.

I put the template on there because they act differently and are named differently in all relevant languages. I'd consider them as roughly the same situation as Needlenose and Pokey Pom, which we have separate. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 16:01, 23 July 2018 (EDT)
In this case, should it be split? Yes, Pokey Poms look more like Spiked Fun Guys than Needlenose with the exception of their spikes beign different, but these act more like Needlenose. Unlike previously, the parents can be ground pounded to be killed (which is not good), the chicks also have been redesigned lacking pants, legs and wings, and instead have green spots. Instead of Boomeranging, they leave a cloud path. In this case, it should clearly be split. -- 03:04, 24 July 2018 (EDT)

Split Huffin Puffin and Fluffin' Puffin[edit]

Settledproposal.svg This talk page proposal has already been settled. Please do not edit any of the sections in the proposal. If you wish to discuss the article, do so in a new header below the proposal.

split 8-0
Huffin Puffin as of this game are changed. The adult get killed upon stepping on it, instead of bouncing and the adult runs away. Both English and original Japanese names are different here. The chicks are redesigned: They no longer wear the light blue pants with yellow spots and buttons, they no longer have feet, and instead of all of that, they have green spots on their body. When thrown, they no longer come back, leaving a platform of fluff behind their direction.

  1. FanOfYoshi (talk): Since aside from physical differences, their Japanese name being also different and functioning differently, i think we should split.
  2. Toadette the Achiever (talk) Well, the chicks do have different functions, so I'm inclined to support, given what I proposed for Spark and Magnet Sparky.
  3. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) Pretty sure I'm the one who added the split template. For the separate name and throwing effects.
  4. Niiue (talk) Per all.
  5. LinkTheLefty (talk) I added the template first, but no one seemed interested in splitting at the time, so it was removed... But yeah, per all.
  6. TheFlameChomp (talk) I feel that there are enough changes for it to warrant a split. Per all.
  7. Yoshi the SSM (talk) Per all.
  8. YoshiFlutterJump (talk) Per all.



If anything else, why not instead split out the Huffin Puffin chicks and Fluffin' Puffin chicks? Toadette icon CTTT.pngFont of Archivist Toadette's signature(T|C) 10:38, 13 September 2018 (EDT)

@Toadette, the adult is killed when you jump on it. --Ski Yoshi FanOfYoshi A Dr. Freezegood 10:39, 13 September 2018 (EDT)
They're still defeated in the exact same way. It's really the chicks that have more of a behavioral difference. Toadette icon CTTT.pngFont of Archivist Toadette's signature(T|C) 10:43, 13 September 2018 (EDT)
That may be true, but splitting this article three ways would look rather clunky. Besides, the chicks are closely related to their parents anyway. LinkTheLefty (talk) 13:45, 15 September 2018 (EDT)

You should have a reason in this proposal, rather than just leaving it blank. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 10:45, 13 September 2018 (EDT)

They do have some kind of reasoning in their vote, but it's still better to include a description to give voters context. Toadette icon CTTT.pngFont of Archivist Toadette's signature(T|C) 10:51, 13 September 2018 (EDT)
@Link True! It would be rather clunky to split the chicks! Better to split the Huffin Puffin and Fluffin-Puffin. --Ski Yoshi FanOfYoshi A Dr. Freezegood 14:01, 15 September 2018 (EDT)
@Alex, il specified the reason when you told me to do so. What would you vote for? --Ski Yoshi FanOfYoshi A Dr. Freezegood 16:44, 15 September 2018 (EDT)
So as if i understand, Huffin Puffin and Fluffin Puffin are considered as different creatures? --Ski Yoshi FanOfYoshi A Dr. Freezegood 10:04, 21 September 2018 (EDT)
