Split Walking Tree from this page[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 9-1
The Walking Trees (previously known as Moving Trees and currently known as Walking Trees because the guide calls them that) were merged because apparently they're not notable enough. This is to say nothing of the other Mario Kart obstacles that weren't merged, like Bomb-Car, Mushroom Car, and Wiggler Bus, apparently these trees are especially unimportant despite serving as obstacles just like the rest of them. With the current proposal to delete Pit Plant failing and the current proposal to split Bouncing Note in full swing, this proposal is coming hot on their heels. If you're going to quibble about it not having enough appearances, then it's appeared in both Mario Kart DS and Mario Kart 7, which is more than the above Car and Bus, and there are many, many, many subjects that have only made one appearance. To put it frankly, the Walking Trees are officially named entities with unique appearances that interact uniquely with players, and saying that the Mario Kart series is somehow undeserving of having individual articles for its enemies goes against literally every other standard for every other series. Are you seriously going to tell me that Mario's Time Machine deserves to be covered to a deeper extent than the Mario Kart series?

Comments[edit]

I just have one question: What can be said about it other than "It's a moving tree"? All it does is just block the player. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 20:04, 3 September 2017 (EDT)

The same that can be said about a Turtle that does nothing but block the player? Hello, I'm Time Turner. 20:05, 3 September 2017 (EDT)
Well, the Turtle can be interacted with, as in the player can move it aside. Not so much with the tree. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 20:07, 3 September 2017 (EDT)
The drivers interact with the Walking Trees by bumping into them. The Moving Trees shuffle from side to side, and if the players hit them, they are slowed down. It's not a background element that just looks at the racers (and frankly, it can be interacted with more than the birds). Hello, I'm Time Turner. 20:10, 3 September 2017 (EDT)
I'm not set on the available information, but I'll support due to it having a name and to be consistent with the other articles. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 20:12, 3 September 2017 (EDT)
On regards to what can be done, before it was turned into a redirect, I did actually create its article. So there is enough stuff to write for it. Yoshi876 (talk)

@Yoshi co.: They're designed to stop racers from progressing. How is that not hazardous? Hello, I'm Time Turner. 20:30, 3 September 2017 (EDT)
