merge 13-0
Since Ultimate Chimera was a stage element and was Merged with New Pork City, I suggest we merge this since he's a stage element too.

Proposer: UltraMario3000 (talk)
Deadline: May 7, 2011, 23:59 GMT.

Support[edit]

  1. UltraMario3000 (talk) Per my proposal
  2. Mario4Ever (talk) Per proposal. He has no other role in the Mario series than a stage hazard. Let the Metroid wiki go into the specifics.
  3. Zero777 (talk) per proposal
  4. Reddragon19k (talk) Per all!
  5. SWFlash (talk) Per proposal
  6. Tails777 (talk) Per all. This is just like the Whispy Woods and Ultamate Chimera.
  7. Magikrazy51 (talk) Per my proposal, the Chimera merge proposal and this.
  8. Nicke8 (talk) Per UltraMario3000.
  9. Bop1996 (talk) Per proposal.

Comments[edit]

Hmm, I'm torn. Part of my reasoning on the Ultimate Chimera merge was that there was no other appearance except in New Pork City. Kraid has a trophy and an appearance in Nintendo Monopoly, and that kind of information would not work very well on a stage article. I don't want to support unless there's some pleasing way to integrate the trophy and Nintendo Monopoly appearances into Brinstar Depths.

I've noticed that Kraid's trophy information isn't in the list of descriptions from Melee. Perhaps it can be added there? As for the cameo in Nintendo Monopoly, why not just mention on Brinstar Depths something like this? Kraid, who makes a cameo appearance in Nintendo Monopoly, is a dragon-like monster, a nemesis of Samus Aran, and the stage's most prominent hazard. We could then go on to explain his role in the stage. Mario4Ever
That seems fine... Bop1996 (Talk)
Obviously, nothing's definite. Just an idea I had. :) Mario4Ever
Yeah, I was just waiting for someone to suggest an idea that wouldn't mess up the way the stage articles are formatted, similar to what I did on Ultimate Chimera. Bop1996 (Talk)

AxemGreen33: You're right, but our coverage here only limits Kraid as being part of a stage, so he is classified as a stage element. Leave that to Metroid Wiki for this. BabyLuigiFire.png Ray Trace(T|C)

It doesn't matter at all, the voting period was over when he voted. Bop1996 (Talk)
