Talk:Human

From the Super Mario Wiki

Seeing as there is a category for Toads and Koopas, should there also be a category for humans? Almighty Rajah 21:56, 21 August 2006 (EDT)

I think that's fair game. Wayoshi ( T·C·@ ) 23:22, 21 August 2006 (EDT)

Whoa! is Il Piantissimo a HUMAN? (He's a pianta!) Super Mario 256 21:07, 21 April 2007 (EDT)

He looks Human, the Pianta portions of his body just look like costumes parts, a bucket helmet, oven mitt hands, etc. -- Sr Grodus

Dang that guy looks like the running dude from Zelda.. maybe there the same people..... showoff. User:Pal101

Evolution[edit]

Is it ok to remove that line about humans evolving from apes? It is not mentioned in any Mario game, thus is irrelevent here, and it may offend people of certian religions. Waluigi Fan 00:24, 19 May 2007 (EDT)

-Evolution's a major part of the live-action film, so I guess that's why it's mentioned. DrFurball 01:23, 17 May 2008 (EDT)

Mario party 8[edit]

Notable Humans[edit]

Do we really need this list? It includes almost all the humans that are in the template anyway. We could limit it to the really notable humans; but who is notable enough? Time Questions 15:03, 20 February 2008 (EST)

Other species pages have the same lists. Maybe we could remove the "notable", but the list should stay. - Cobold (talk · contribs) 15:22, 20 February 2008 (EST)
With all the humans that are in the template? Seems redundant to me... (Yeah, other species also have those lists, but they usually don't have such a template..?) Time Questions 15:26, 20 February 2008 (EST)

Picture[edit]

I've noticed that we're using a picture of Mario to represent humans. I guess that's okay, but since some species articles show more than one, maybe we should do that. For example, we could use a picture of Mario and Luigi, like Image:Mario luigi jump.jpg. Or maybe there's a different picture of a few humans, like Mario, Luigi, and Princess Peach, which we could use. Anyone else think that's a good idea? 25px CrystalYoshi Yoshi Egg Sprite.png 13:31, 29 July 2008 (EDT)

I think either could work. I don't think there are any rules about whether or not species articles should have multiple members of that species in their picture; for instance, Goomba's image just shows one Goomba. YELLOWYOSHI398
Like Yellow said, we sometimes have a generic member of the species. In the case of humans, generic humans can be found in the DiC animated cartoon series. I believe the comic Super Mario Adventures has a panel featuring Mario, Luigi, and the Salesman (can't remember his name), all of whom are humans. Whatever we do, we gotta make sure that we mention the source of the picture so that it doesn't seem like this is how all generic humans look in the Marioverse. Stumpers! 14:22, 29 July 2008 (EDT)
Okay, so should it say something like "Mario, a human in the Marioverse"? 25px CrystalYoshi Yoshi Egg Sprite.png 14:55, 29 July 2008 (EDT)
Oh, looks like someone found a better picture. 25px CrystalYoshi Yoshi Egg Sprite.png 15:03, 29 July 2008 (EDT)
Yeah, that was me. :) I forgot to mention it here. Stumpers! 16:10, 29 July 2008 (EDT)

Il Piantisimo[edit]

Or whatever his name is... he's actually a human. His face was revealed through hacking. It was a modified version of a Hylian from the Legend of Zelda series (Hylians are the Hyrule equivilent of humans) Stumpers! 16:20, 29 July 2008 (EDT)

Why a redirect?[edit]

The article was replaced by a redirect to the category Humans because it only included a list of humans. I actually think that nothing was wrong with it, as the article also stated what humans are and didn't just list them. Plus, many articles link to it. Any opinions? --Grandy02 13:40, 30 August 2010 (UTC)

Agreed. Humans are a species, and the article actually described them in detail. I don't see why it was redirected to the template. Hello, I'm Time Turner.
I reverted the last edit. --Grandy02 14:50, 1 December 2010 (UTC)

Princess Peach[edit]

I've always viewed her as a Toad who just happens to look Human for some weird reason. --MithrandirOlorin 08:53, 25 June 2012 (EDT)

Cleanup[edit]

The notable humans section is useless, it literally lists every human in the series. Permission to clean it up? --Yoshi2mpds.gif SuperYoshiBros Yoshi2mpds.gif 21:24, 9 February 2013 (EST)

A lot, if not all of that list is covered by {{Human}}. So if the entire list is on that template, then I see the list as redundant.
'Shroom Spotlight Shokora (talk · edits) 21:32, 9 February 2013 (EST)
So, should I clean it up and leave only notable characters then? (Mario, Luigi, Peach, and the likes of them) --Yoshi2mpds.gif SuperYoshiBros Yoshi2mpds.gif 21:33, 9 February 2013 (EST)

Sure.

'Shroom Spotlight Shokora (talk · edits) 21:36, 9 February 2013 (EST)

I'll point out that deciding which humans are notable and which humans aren't can be a very subjective process, especially if it's only being handled by one user. GreenDisaster (talk) 21:50, 9 February 2013 (EST)

I'd prefer to get rid of the list entirely, TBH.
'Shroom Spotlight Shokora (talk · edits) 21:52, 9 February 2013 (EST)
It's honestly what I prefer too, but perhaps a proposal would best decide what to do. GreenDisaster (talk) 21:53, 9 February 2013 (EST)

How's the list now? --Yoshi2mpds.gif SuperYoshiBros Yoshi2mpds.gif 21:56, 9 February 2013 (EST)

It's better. GreenDisaster: did you want to make the proposal, or should I do it?

'Shroom Spotlight Shokora (talk · edits) 21:58, 9 February 2013 (EST)

I'm a bit rusty. You can go ahead and make it. GreenDisaster (talk) 22:00, 9 February 2013 (EST)

Proposal: removing "Notable Members" section on article[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.

remove 13-0
I think the section "Notable Members" should be removed because, as discussed above, user's opinions of which members are notable can vary, and there is already a brief list of Notable Members in the infobox.

Proposer: YoshiKong (talk)
Deadline: February 24, 2013, 23:59 GMT

  8. Aokage (talk) Per all.
  9. Freakworld (talk) Per all.
  10. King Pikante (talk) I don't see why we should have a list of notable humans section. It's just useless and users would bicker all the time who was and wasnt important. They are all important, and it would cause confusion to the reader. All of the humans are notable. There is just too many opinions on who is notable and who isn't. Section is useless. Period.
  11. Walkazo (talk) - Per YoshiKong. The six-entry infobox list is enough for the whole page.
  12. Tails777 (talk) Per all

Lacking[edit]

I feel this page is sonewhat lacking in content if compared to other species pages like Toad. What about their games appearances ? I would update it myself, but I never played them. 191.128.187.29 22:35, 27 July 2014 (EDT)

Notable members[edit]

We could add that list, but it'd probably take an insane amount of time MarioLover54 (talk) 09:53, August 3, 2019 (EDT)

I'm pretty sure we don't actually need that, though. Also, please stop necroing old discussions. --ExdeathIcon.png Lord G. matters. ExdeathIcon.png 09:58, August 3, 2019 (EDT)
