I don't really see why we're keeping this page around, honestly. It's a list of the episodes featuring the main character of the show. That's pretty redundant - you'd expect him to be in every episode, and if you look at the listed episodes it really is a list of every episode of the show, furthering my point. Overall, it'd be simpler to just delete this half-finished page, rather than try to finish it and end up with merely a summary of all the episodes - something much better done on the individual pages already.

Support[edit]

  1. Superchao (talk) Per the reasons I stated in my proposal.
    Mario4Ever (talk) Per proposal. In addition to this, the main page about the show already has a list of episodes.
  2. Vommack (talk) We may as well make a "List of main-series Mario games featuring Mario".
    Randombob-omb4761 (talk) Very pointless, doesn't Donkey Kong appear in most of those episodes?
  3. Joseph (talk) He's the main character' so he might appear in almost every episode.

Oppose[edit]

  1. Mario (talk) Not the best action to do. The purpose of this page is not to say, "Oh, look, Donkey Kong appeared in this episode and that episode"; rather, it documents in more detail about the character in the episode in question. As 'kazo said, you have to consider the other pages similar to this one as well. Finally, an unfinished project is an unfinished project, and as long as it isn't a stub, it shouldn't be tossed, especially when it has potential for growth.
  2. Tsunami (talk) Per Mario. It's right this article is partially pointless because under construction, but deleting it only because it's unfinished it's pointlesser. Even if it isn't finished, at least it haves the basic purpose of listing the episodes where Donkey King appeared, but when fully done, it may be very useful. Why this isn't finished is just because there aren't the videos... or because of laziness (second much more probabily).
  3. Glowsquid (talk) Per Mario and Walakzo in the comments.
  4. Walkazo (talk) - Per myself in the comments and per Mario's additional points above.
  5. Ghost Jam (talk) Per Walkazo.
  6. 'Shroom64 (talk) True, DK's the main character, but that doesn't exactly mean he must be featured in every episode to exist. Per all.
  7. Baby Luigi (talk) Per Mario and especially Walkazo

Comments[edit]

This page is actually an example of what we're supposed to be doing: moving all the episode summaries off the character pages and onto "subpages" in order to cut down on their extreme lengths without losing information. We also have List of Super Mario World episodes featuring Mario and List of The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3 episodes featuring Mario, and we should have more, but no one's taken the initiative yet. I'm pretty sure Porplemontage himself has told us to start doing this - I can't remember where or when off the top of my head, but I remember seeing it somewhere... - Walkazo 21:31, 4 September 2014 (EDT)
