Talk:King Kaliente

From the Super Mario Wiki, the Mario encyclopedia

What the...? King Magma Blooper--Caith Sith 15:25, 31 October 2007 (EDT)

His name was gotton from the official Prima strategy guide.

Since when is Prima official? - Cobold (talk · contribs) 15:27, 31 October 2007 (EDT)

Sory, but Prima usually makes up their own names. This is not official. 3dhammer.gif 3D, do you have the guide? 3dhammer.gif

But this article is a copy&paste of King Magma Blooper... "King Kaliente" can be a redirect, no the same article with another name...--Caith Sith 17:41, 31 October 2007 (EDT)

The Mission Name Was King Kaliente's Battle Fleet So His Name Is King Kaliente. Case Closed. P.S. You Also won the award for "Most Blind To The Obvious." - User: Thirsty for Power

Please be polite. This conversation happened before the game was released. - 2257(Talk) BbQbf6g.png 20:33, 18 March 2009 (EDT)

Black King Kaliente[edit]

In Bowser Jr.'s Lava Reactor King Kaliente is black instead of orange: [1] FH-sprite.pngFreekhenstraFH-sprite.png

Your point...? GreenBoo 02:16, 20 September 2008 (EDT)

Why?[edit]

Why isn't King Kaliente considered a Goomba if he's an Octogoomba? - Bill-tendo 23:48, 13 March 2012 (EDT)

Where are they called Octogoomba's Raven Effect (talk)
Octo-goomba, I guess? Or was it Octoombas? Mario Green.pngKaBoom! 23:53, 13 March 2012 (EDT)
I think it's Octoombas but I was asking whats the source that calls them Octoombas cause if they are octoombas than yes they should be put in the Goomba category as well Raven Effect (talk)

Kaliente's head resembles an Octoomba, but I don't know if that's enough to merit him as an Octoomba. Mario Green.pngKaBoom! 00:02, 14 March 2012 (EDT)

If it than he's one weird space Goomba...perhaps we should ask someone with the Prima guide Raven Effect (talk)
The Prima guide isn't exactly a reliable source. :P Mario Green.pngKaBoom! 00:18, 14 March 2012 (EDT)
I understand that but it's kind of the only official source unless there's a trading card for this guy...also you can't get it wrong when all the info is new Raven Effect (talk)
It's likely that he has a trading card, since he's one of the important bosses. Also, the category of Super Mario Galaxy trading cards includes him for some reason. Mario Green.pngKaBoom! 00:25, 14 March 2012 (EDT)
Well than we should ask someone with the trading cards if he's an octoomba (also fun fact the trading cards are what confirmed octoombas as goombas) Raven Effect (talk)

Just to confirm he has a trading card, here's the link to the picture. It's just a picture, though. Mario Green.pngKaBoom! 00:28, 14 March 2012 (EDT)

So we need to either get his trading card or the Prima guide Raven Effect (talk)
Okay, then. Mario Green.pngKaBoom! 00:30, 14 March 2012 (EDT)
prima calls it an octopus --ptr
Technically, Octoomba and Octogoomba are the same thing, and mostly, I call them Octogoombas. - Bill-tendo 20:37, 17 March 2012 (EDT)

Splitting the Kalientes?[edit]

Question.svg This talk page or section has a conflict or a question that needs to be answered. Please try to help and resolve the issue by leaving a comment.

I'm not quite sure what the point is. They're both named the same character, and it's heavily suggested that they are the same character just making a return. The black version doesn't exhibit any particularly new strategies or abilities in the boss fight. And, if this were to pass, what of other recurring boss characters, like Knot-Wing the Koopa and the other Woolly World bosses, or even mid-bosses like Jr. Troopa and all? MarioComix (talk) 22:24, March 21, 2019 (EDT)

Look here for the arguments regarding it. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 22:29, March 21, 2019 (EDT)
I think another proposal should be made. --Toasty.jpg FanOfYoshi NSMB - Splunkin Model.png 10:36, April 7, 2019 (EDT)
And i supported the split. (And i agree that it made an inconsistency, now that it failed to get split). --Toasty.jpg FanOfYoshi NSMB - Splunkin Model.png 11:35, May 10, 2019 (EDT)
I asked to Toadette the Achiever what to do with it now that the inconsistency has been caused, but did not get a response yet. I'm patient though. --Toasty.jpg FanOfYoshi NSMB - Splunkin Model.png 11:31, June 12, 2019 (EDT)
Personally, I do not support the split. Obsessive Mario Fan (talk) 11:45, June 12, 2019 (EDT)
They're the exact same character, so no. Just because they appear again with a different tactic doesn't mean they get split. Otherwise, we'd have two Petey Piranha articles. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 11:49, June 12, 2019 (EDT)
Also, out of curiosity, do they, and Gobblegut have separate models? --Toasty.jpg FanOfYoshi NSMB - Splunkin Model.png 13:31, June 13, 2019 (EDT)
Almost positive it's the same model with different textures. Granted, the Piranhas might do the same thing, as the petals are potentially just a texture themselves. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 13:39, June 13, 2019 (EDT)
I don't know about the game, but I looked on the noclip website and the King Kalientes are the same model (with same color) and the Dino Piranhas are the same thing in both games. However, this is not true for the two Gobbleguts. I use noclip since I am not the actual games since, even though I have them, I know nothing about looking into them. Yoshissm-animated walk.gif Yoshi the SSM (talk) 21:00, June 13, 2019 (EDT)

Well since the second time is titled "King Kaliente's Spicy RETURN", it seems very likely that it is the same character Mario Sakuraba (talk) 20:08, June 13, 2019 (EDT)

Exactly. PumpkinheadGoomba.png Spooky Mario Fan MK8DX Dry Bones Icon.png 20:36, June 13, 2019 (EDT)
What are the name of the models? Also, the scorched one has a separate entry in the encyclopedia. --Toasty.jpg FanOfYoshi NSMB - Splunkin Model.png 07:33, June 14, 2019 (EDT)
In Hisstocrat Returns, there is a different Hisstocrat. Despite the name, it is a separate entity, and it is confirmed on Boss Blitz that Hisstocrat and the queen Hisstocrat are different. What about Shadow Mario being split from Bowser Jr.? Same scenario, no? --Toasty.jpg FanOfYoshi NSMB - Splunkin Model.png 06:42, June 15, 2019 (EDT)
I'd ask to LinkTheLefty later about the internal filename. --Toasty.jpg FanOfYoshi NSMB - Splunkin Model.png 14:51, June 15, 2019 (EDT)

All right, I think I finally know enough to weigh in on this discussion: I'd say both Kalientes are one and the same. The color differences appear to be aesthetic, and it's really the battlefield that changes. On the other hand, since the Gobbleguts have slightly differing attack patterns and have a nearly identical battlefield, it's hard to say whether they should be separate or not.

There's also the matter of the mission name referring to King Kaliente making a 2nd appearance. In response to the "Hisstocrat Returns" situation, well, the Japanese naming makes a distinction (Hisstocrat vs. Hisstocrat (pink)) whereas the Japanese mission names use "Otaking" regardless.
