Most RPG Games have a "bestiary" article. Then why not this one? I think it would be better if all the RPG Games have a bestiary article.

  2. Zootalo (talk) The Dream Team bestiary has the same proposal, so this page might as well follow suit.
  3. Yoshi876 (talk) Per consistency.
  4. Icemario11 (talk) Per all.
  5. LeftyGreenMario (talk) Sure, let's do that.

Do Nothing[edit]


Tutorial Bosses[edit]

There's some debate as to whether Bowser 1, Midbus 1, Broque Monsieur and Broggy are bosses. They're unique enemies with the Boss Battle entrance (except Bowser) and death animation, but they aren't too strong and the regular enemy battle music plays. I think I've thought of a middle ground. What if we just listed them as Tutorial Bosses, since that's what they are, bosses meant to teach new techniques. We could use Italics for it. Any takers?

P.S. The game doesn't save after defeating Dark Bowser/Dark Star Core. Therefore, technically speaking, they are always the last enemies encountered. However, the X Bosses are listed after them. Is that important?

I'm going to go ahead and do it.

I think the optional bosses are down there because the whole place is optional with no place to put them. As a matter of fact, since Bowser X is harder than Dark Bowser (or any other boss), he should be last and the others need to be near him.

I think this should also apply to the bestiary for Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time. That game has mini bosses as a pose to area bosses which are fought at the end of the areas and have something to master like a gimmick. The RPG Gamer (talk) (edits) MLPJKingBoo.png 22:23, 6 October 2016 (EDT)

Wrong stat boosts[edit]

I've noticed that a few stat boosts from the Challenge Medal are incorrect. Take Goombule and Elite Goombule for example, it says that Goombule's SPD is 18. This is correct because 12 x 1.5 = 18. But look at Elite Goombule's, which is at 28. 12 x 1.5 does not equal 28. Also look at Bowser. His HP is 40, but 25 x 1.5 = 37.5 (which rounds to 38), which means his HP should be 40. Can anyone tell me why some are this way? DarkBowserBIS.pngDarkBowser777(talk)Dreamy Bowser idle.png 10:33, 27 August 2017 (EDT)
