Are the characters such as goombas, shy guys are confirmed in the game?Because I don't see any of them in any of the screenshots. Now where is the source for that?F gLarrynana.gif

This source was given in an edit summary. - Cobold (talk · contribs) 16:57, 10 October 2007 (EDT)
Where can one see Luigi, Shy Guy and Goomba? -- Booster
A lot of Shy Guy are in the audience, with Piantas and Toads. I can't see Goomba or Luigi...--Caith Sith 17:19, 10 October 2007 (EDT)


Its odd that yoshi has not been confirmed but minor characters have been confirmed... wierd.File:MP8 DryBones.jpgSuper Yoshi10Artwork of Yoshi in Mario Party 8 (later reused for Mario & Sonic at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games)Lookey ThisBlack Yoshi Move.gif

Petey Piranha[edit]

Not that I don't like Petey Piranha, but what proof do you have that he's playable? Can someone show me the exact link?--PeteyPiranhaLover 16:12, 13 October 2007 (EDT)

Notice that all of the characters confirmed so far were in the original. Therefore it proves that Petey is back.Ridley

No, it doesn't. When it hasn't been seen or said, he doesn't belong here. - Cobold (talk · contribs) 05:45, 14 October 2007 (EDT)
Hmm... When were all those confirmed? Can you give sources? Else, it's going to be reverted. - Cobold (talk · contribs) 07:43, 14 October 2007 (EDT)
--ItameMarioFan itameaMarioFan He's right here. Look at the image where there are freezies everywhere. You will see him in the very background. He's also here.


Are those Stadiums officially named? My Bloody Valentine

Yes, Yes thare are. --rwars 18:09, 11 October 2011 (EDT)

Petey Piranha's greenhouse[edit]

I noticed that Petey Piranha's Greenhouse was listed as one of the stadiums in this game, but the very next day it was deleted. Why was that? Did it come from an unreliable source, or what? - Glitchmansig.PNG Glitchman (talk · contribs) Glitchmansig.PNG

What happen with the old article of this game? i can't found it in the Wiki...--Caith Sith 22:42, 5 February 2008 (EST)

What do you mean, exactly? My Bloody Valentine
If you take a look to this talk page, you can see that the first comment was added in October... but the article was created in February... That's weird... Specially considering that i create the article in October and now isn't on the Wiki ._.--Caith Sith 23:03, 5 February 2008 (EST)
Oh, I see. Sir Grodus deleted the article earlier today, but then restored it shortly after. As such, the history of the article was restarted, and thus, it shows Sir Grodus' version as the first edit of the article. So, your first edit to the article has been removed from the history, sorry. My Bloody Valentine

Shy Guy Dome[edit]

Is there any source for this stadium since I can't find anything about this stadium on other sites? I need proof like screenshots and source.F gLarrynana.gif

Get the Info NOW!!! Blue KoopC

What? f_cm_767603a.pngChaos NEEDS MOAR NINJI f_cm_767603a.png I also would like proof.


Hey por que ponen Noki si es Blue Noki y ademas por que no tienen ninguna imagen de ella ni informacion solamente de ella en este sitio.

In English: Hey so that they put Noki if it is Blue Noki and so that they do not only have information of her and no image of her in this site.

Noki would be like Piantas.


Nosotros no quisimos poner a Noki. Alguien mas fue el que lo puso, y el que lo puso no nos da imagenes por que Noki no esta emberdad en el juego. El solo quiere causar problemas y mentir de que el si esta en el juego. El que puso esa informacion toda via no sabe de que tenemos que poner imagenes, me imagino. Paper Jorge ( Talk·Contributions)·

Hey no se para que ponen eso de [citation needed] en los personajes:

Noki [citation needed] Koopa Troopa [citation needed] Goomba [citation needed] Baby Mario [citation needed] Baby Luigi [citation needed] Diddy Kong [citation needed] Dixie Kong [citation needed] Birdo [citation needed] Boo [citation needed] Toadette [citation needed] Petey Piranha [citation needed]

y  King Boo [citation needed]

Nose para que lo ponen, pues a fuerzas estos personajes tienen que salir ya que para jugar baseball se necesitan muchas personas en este caso (personajes) y no creo que Nintendo decida quitar estos personajes y poner otros 20 nuevos ya que eso se llevaria un gran gran tiempo ya que necesitarian hacer diseños nuevos para los personajes, tambien los sonidos de los personajes y ademas no creo eso de parte de Nintendo por que si no se han fijado en muchos juegos desblockeas personajes que no son nuevos es decir como en Mario Kart Wii desblockeas a Diddy Kong y este personaje no es nuevo osea Nintendo si pone personajes nuevos pero de vez en cuando como Baby Peach en Mario Kart Wii o Blooper en Mario Party 8 osea no ponen un monton de personajes nuevos en un solo juego porque si eso hicieran la gente va a querer que pongan a todos esos personajes nuevos en el siguiente juego mas los personajes viejos y mas otros nuevos que tengas que desblockear en fin tiene que haber un orden y regresando a lo de los personajes es seguro que si salgan y a lo mejor se agrega uno que otro nuevo como Baby Peach pero bueno de todas formas tenemos que esperarnos hasta que ya lo confirme Nintendo.

No new info...[edit]

Um...why? We haven't got any since October. I thought we could get a few pics or something... thoughts? Toad allstar

baby daisy/peach[edit]

hey, love the look of this game so far, but will baby daisy and peach be playable,cos if baby mario and luigi can, so can they. not bein funny, just wondering.
The preceding unsigned comment was added by Daisybaby (talk).

I don't see the humor in your suggestion, but they haven't been confirmed. I wouldn't doubt it though. Fixitup

That could happen, and probably will. at least baby peach anyway. Toad allstar

i hope baby daisy makes it in, shes one of my fave characters! baby daisy rules!


--Mauj.gif 22:57, 17 April 2008 (EDT) This characters are confirmed?


Well, and where are the links? hello?
The preceding unsigned comment was added by Birdoshi (talk).

i agree, there shoud be some more links by now, shouldnt there? bam! you just got hit by a flying baseball hit by princess daisy!

Dixie Kong[edit]

I found an Article that mentions Dixie Kong featuring in the Demo of Mario super sluggers.

here is the link:

However, since there are no screen shots proving this should I just wait and see before adding her to the list? (I am aware that she appeared in the previous game, I'm just not sure if an unofficial source is enough evidence) Thoughts? - Despot joil

--Mauj.gif 16:58, 16 May 2008 (EDT)OOwwww!,Birdo are in the image of the box!!!

--Mauj.gif 17:02, 16 May 2008 (EDT)WOW! Baby Peach, Baby Donkey Kong, and Bloooper, are in the game!,I hope, also,that Baby Birdo!!

Why was Baby DK removed from the character list? It's obviously him above Baby Peach. Who else could it be? MDupont 01:00, 17 May 2008 (EDT)

Awesome article in japanese magizine with lots of pics and art[edit]

I have found an article with pics of the characters and art. And each character has their own special shot (instead of mario and luigi both having fireballs, luigi has a tornedo thing as seen in one of the screen shots The character art looks great :)

Here is a link to the magizine: 47949_viploader642253_122_1018lo.jpg

In the very bottom, right hand corner, is that a Mii!?! D= -Moonshine

--Mauj.gif 23:40, 16 May 2008 (EDT)OOh, thanks! Moonshine!,by the Birdo,and Daisy artworks!

I.. can't...BREATH! I love this artwork more than life! Can't wait for a high-res version! ForeverDaisy09

Hey ifyou look at the top right corner...what is that? Possible story mode returning?! :o BTW, I made this buliten thing and forgot to add my signature :p Oh, and moonshine, yes that is a Mii.--YOSHIANDLINK1 08:01, 17 May 2008 (EDT)

I must say, I really like the night and day feature, was it ever in anything besides MP6? I'm really looking forward to it again. -Moonshine

Box art[edit]

What is on the box art doesn't have to be in the actual game. Mario Party 8's boxart had Fly Guys, but they didn't play any role in the game itself. - Cobold (talk · contribs) 20:46, 17 May 2008 (EDT)

So they put Baby DK, Baby Peach, and Blooper on the cover just for the heck of it? MDupont 23:38, 17 May 2008 (EDT)

These characters happen to be on the cover because it was cut to fit Mario at the center. You can see to the far left people in seating box are barely cut out. ForeverDaisy09

We can't base it on the boxart. For one, Blooper might be a referee (or whatever), like Lakitu. It's very likely Baby Peach, but we can't be certain. And that Baby DK may be Diddy Kong. My Bloody Valentine The image is too blurry to be certain.

Diddy Kong on the left side of Mario and I'm certain that is Baby DK. Blooper probably not the ref because, one, of I don't think baseball you need two ref, two, he can't talk. -Pikatwo

Lakitu can't talk, but was he a ref in Super Mario Superstar Baseball? Yes. Giratinabylydarioss8.jpgPalkia47Palkia.png Dialga.png

Did you notice Daisy on the left side next to Diddy?? I dunno I just noticed that. ^_^ User: Supersmashbrosbrawl

Better Quality[edit]

There you go: gLarrynana.gif

All stadiums... Daisy cruiser???[edit]

Here all the stadiums in the game


Next to the Mario Stadium, there´s a cruiser, adorned with flowers and a big daisy. Is that the Daisy cruiser? -- User: Amaral

You don't even have to assume anything to comprehend that it's a Daisy Cruiser stadium. ForeverDaisy09

What's got me confused you can see nine stadiums.... but the thing is this doesn't match up with our list. |Here I see:

  • Mario Stadium 1
  • Daisy Stadium 2
  • Peach Stadium 3
  • Spooky? Stadium 4
  • Jr. Lego? Stadium 5
  • Toy Field 6
  • DK Stadium 7
  • Wario Stadium 8
  • Yoshi Stadium 9

|We have listed:

  • Mario Stadium
  • Peach Garden
  • Yoshi Park
  • Wario Fare
  • Shy Guy Dome Where is this on the map?
  • Ice Palace Where is this on the map?
  • Chomp Desert[2] Where is this on the map?
  • DK Jungle[1]

That's beacuse the list is wrong, and someone who is able to change the list needs to into this list:

  • Mario Stadium (confirmed)
  • Daisy Cruiser (obvious)
  • Peach Rink (confirmed by jeux-france)
  • Luigi's Mansion (obvious)
  • Bowser Jr. Castle (conjectural)
  • Toy Field
  • DK Jungle (confirmed by jeux-france)
  • Wario Street (conjectural, confirmed)
  • Yoshi Park (confirmed)

--Smasher Luigi

Shy Guy Dome would've been AWESOME!!! --MushroomMadness1221

1(or 2) Characters Missing from List[edit]

Rosalina In her article, Rosalina is mentioned to be playable. Please, if she is not really going to be playable, fix her article. If she is playable, add her name to the list, please. Luma(possibly...just speculation) In Mario Kart Wii, a Luma appears as a special accessory of Rosalina's. This has led me to believe thatLuma may make an appearence. I'm not saying that he/she will be playable, but...yeah...w/e.

We can not do either yet. We have no proof that Rosalina will be in, alongside Luma. Giratinabylydarioss8.jpgPalkia47Palkia.png Dialga.png

We don't know yet. We can't approve or disprove of any information as there is none, yet. ForeverDaisy09

Baby Daisy is IN![edit]

Look here:

After it loads, you should get a page with Baby M and Baby L, go to the second orange button on the bottom of the page and click it. -Oteno 15:39, 5 June 2008 (EDT)

You do not find it odd that the artwork is reused from Mario Kart Wii? I know a lot of other artwork was reused already in other games, but as Cobold has said before on this page, Fly Guys appeared on Mario Party 8's boxart, and they were nowhere to be found. This is not exactly foolproof evidence. f_cm_767603a.pngChaos NEEDS MOAR NINJI f_cm_767603a.png

More Characters Confirmed?[edit]

I heard that on gamespot Mario Super Sluggers Forum that people see a wiggler, funky kong,etc. is any of this true? Can some one give me a source? Cause I don't see any of them.F gLarrynana.gif

I have heard nothing of the sort, but if you do find a source, do tell. With Funky's apperance in MKWii, it would not be unlikely. f_cm_767603a.pngChaos NEEDS MOAR NINJI f_cm_767603a.png

Yeah, Funky is most likely in, but Wiggler? I doubt he would suddenly make an appearance-Oteno 17:04, 5 June 2008 (EDT)

I'm fairly certain he has made an appearance before, but do not take my word for it. I don't even have the first. ;P f_cm_767603a.pngChaos NEEDS MOAR NINJI f_cm_767603a.png

If your talking about Mario SUperstar Baseball for the gamecube, he didn't (I have the game). But, check out what somebody there found: I too spotted Kremling, K. Rool, Baby Daisy, Funky, Tiny, and actually, I was right in the fact that characters with multiple colors (Toad, Noki etc) actually are now separate characters... -Oteno 17:15, 5 June 2008 (EDT)

Wait, is that wiggler in the far right on the bottom row? I think we just found out complete roster! -Oteno 17:20, 5 June 2008 (EDT)

I wouldn't call it as the complete roster just yet. There might be more rows or columns like MKDD, MKW, SSBB. -Pikatwo

Quite. f_cm_767603a.pngChaos NEEDS MOAR NINJI f_cm_767603a.png

Yeah, but who else would they add to fill up a whole other row? Rosalina, Baby Wario, and Dry Bowser (most likely) wouldn't fill the entire row. -Oteno 18:25, 5 June 2008 (EDT)

Hello!!! n_n!! check this video!![[1]] Birdo blowing kiss M&LSS.gifBirdoshiYsh-left.gif

Apparently, Yoshi now has alternate colors. Check the picture and you can see he is red. MDupont 12:20, 6 June 2008 (EDT)

I don't see Baby Daisy anywhere. Also, who's next to Paragoomba and the one next to the mystery one?Nintendofan146 19:20, 8 June 2008 (EDT)

Baby Daisy is in a screenshot on the page. SJ derp :P

What is the source for the American release date?[edit]

Birdo blowing kiss M&LSS.gifBirdoshiYsh-left.gif

I'm confused about the picture and the listing of characters.

Oh Wow!!!! I Love The pictures! (I Love Daisy's the most!) User: Supersmashbrosbrawl

Character Confusion[edit]

The picture shows us 40 characters yet the list has 44 characters. II don't see Fly Guy or Dry Bowser anywhere, so their appearance is questionable. Also, Mario isn't seen on the character select screen, unless they get removed from it if they are selected as a captain.MDupont 11:15, 6 June 2008 (EDT)

Just noticed that Rosalina is missing from the picture too. MDupont 11:21, 6 June 2008 (EDT)

According to the New game pipe project, speculations are alowed. These caracters are speculations, but will most likely apear. Since Baby Daisy is playble, Rosalina and Dry Bowser are most likely also playble. Fly Guy appeard playble in more Mario games, why not this one. ArendLogoTransparent.pngrend (talk) (edits)

The only logical conclusions I can think of is that 1.) More boxes are added when more characters are unlocked. 2.) Dry Bowser is an alternate color for Bowser like Fire Bro. and Boomerang Bro. are for Hammer Bro, and may be the same for Fly Guy with Shy Guy. 3.) They aren't in the game at all and perhaps Funky Kong is just in their for kicks. MDupont 12:44, 6 June 2008 (EDT)

We can't say anything now. On the official site of the game, the characters page can't be enterd jet. ArendLogoTransparent.pngrend (talk) (edits)

Okay, I understand the whole "Speculation" thing is nice. BUT WHO PUT THAT AXEL, BABY ROSALINA, AND BABY AXEL WAS PLAYABLE!?!?!?!?! I suggest we protect this page. User: Sonic&Mario Kid

I agree. And only keep the characters, the 40 confirmed ones. Take away Roaslina, Cheep-Cheep, Kass etc. Only the 40 we saw yesterday. -Oteno 15:33, 6 June 2008 (EDT)

Who is Axel? Never heard about him... User:Charmander

I think it was a user's fan-made character. But when I typed it, all that came up with was that User:Piplupaxel had the word "axel" in his/her name. And what about Funky KOng? User: Sonic&Mario Kid

Woah.....lotta characters. Is anyone sure that that pictures legit? And also, on a side-note, Axel is a very popular character from Kingdom Hearts.... seriously, has no one heard of him? - Ultimatetoad

I know Axel. He was actually very easy to beat in KH: CoM... -Oteno 08:20, 7 June 2008 (EDT)

He was cooler in the second one. He had a Catchphrase? Was'nt there going to be a KH/SMB crossover? - Ultimatetoad

No, that was an April Fools prank by Electronic Gaming Monthly. But, this is off-topic. My Bloody Valentine

No kidding. So what about Funky Kong, who or what said he was playable? User: Sonic&Mario Kid


Don't you find it odd that a HUGE caterpiller (bigger than bowser) would play in the game? It would make more sense that the Wiggler we saw in the image is actually a Flutter, ( so, it will float like Paratroopa). -Oteno 13:04, 7 June 2008 (EDT)

Well, a Wiggler has played Tennis..... it makes sense that it could play baseball. It does'nt have to make sense, it's a videogame. - Ultimatetoad


I found the Intro on You Tube. v=mP8vG9ZOv9g GrapesGrapes Grapes


Where were they all confirmed?Nintendofan146 14:28, 8 June 2008 (EDT)

The Japanese page, probably, and there is a screenshot on the page as well that hows them. SJ derp :P

Unlockable Characters Revealed[edit]

--ItameMarioFan itameaMarioFan
Go here and check it out at WiiFolder.

Unlockable characters I see:

There's a possibility of 44 or 42 characters, but I think this:

  • The Arrow Button goes to the next screen (select your course, maybe?)
  • Change your color
  • ????
  • Done

Don't get mad at me because my guesses are wrong.

IGN has its own list, which is sporting a character called "Mare". I sense a typo on their side there. - Cobold (talk · contribs) 16:38, 13 June 2008 (EDT)
Mare?? O.o What's that? ^_^' It's unlikely for Lakitu to be playable, he is the only narrator for Out! or Strike!. And it's really far to guess characters now; but I guess that the Japanese relase will only tell. --ItameMarioFan itameaMarioFan


it says by IGN that Mario SUper Sluggers comes out in NA in August 25, 2008 Source: 20:18, 12 June 2008 (EDT)


I saw lakitu in a famitsu scan where says he is playable is it okay to put him in the playable characters?F gLarrynana.gif

Lakitu is also on IGN's list I linked above. Add with a reference to the site. - Cobold (talk · contribs) 16:58, 13 June 2008 (EDT)
And also it is strongly hinted that he will be playable becase he's blend in with other playable characters.F gLarrynana.gif
That's not a hint, that's a confirmation. Go ahead. - Cobold (talk · contribs) 17:14, 13 June 2008 (EDT)
Are you sure this is confirmation? I mean, the pic we saw of the character select screen dipicted no space for Lakitu. Also, wasn't there a pic or video (possibly a trailer) that showed Lakitu floating behind Donkey Kong? I just wonder if Famitsu got it wrong. Has anyone even translated the text below to see what it says? Futhermore, IGN's Mare may be a typo, but of what? I can draw a few conclusions about Lakitu and the character select screen image. Either A.) It's a beta screenshot and not the whole roster was about to fit on the screen or B.) The character squares get smaller once more than 40 players are playable similar to how it works in Mario Kart Wii. MDupont 19:42, 13 June 2008 (EDT)
With two confirmations, it might still be wrong, but it is less likely wrong. Note that speculative nature is allowed in articles about new games, and I think this is exactly the category that this fits into. - Cobold (talk · contribs) 19:47, 13 June 2008 (EDT)

Yes, but IGN was basing their roster on what they saw in Famitsu. Not sure if they have translators there, but it's still likely that Famitsu is wrong and Lakitu is just "featured" in the game. MDupont 19:55, 13 June 2008 (EDT)

I don't see the other way less likely. We should stick to press information until it is prooven wrong. - Cobold (talk · contribs) 20:11, 13 June 2008 (EDT)
Now why was Lakitu removed? I thought he was "confirmed"? MDupont 13:44, 14 June 2008 (EDT)
He is a umpire, the opening sequence on the Japanese website shows him as a umpire, just because he has art in Famitsu doesn't mean he is playable, it just means he is in the game. -Pikatwo
This is nonsence, everyone. Lakitu is non-playable. There are only 40 characters. In almost every video, Lakitu is shown behind everything. He's an umpire. I'm not deleting him off the characters section, nor am I sure that my statement is true, otherwise I would delete alot of things. --ItameMarioFan itameaMarioFan

Speculation Characters? WTF?[edit]

What the heck is this? When was it ever confirmed that there are infact 44 characters? Can someone please cite these sources like the 44 character thing. Sure, the speculation list is based off characters who have previously appeared in Mario games (except Lanky) but still. It came out of nowhere and I will delete it if need be. I know speculation is allowed, but I'd like to know where it says 44 characters. MDupont 17:48, 17 June 2008 (EDT)

I don't like this speculation rule. People could fill up with characters who "could" make it in. I say we should only post things that are confirmed. Please delete that. BTW, it NEVER siad 44 characters. -Oteno 18:29, 17 June 2008 (EDT)

Japanese Menus (MUST SEE) + Release Dates[edit]

I've been browsing the web and I've been looking at release dates for Sluggers. Here are some:

  • 1UP - December 15, 2008
  • Wikipedia - August 2, 2008
  • IGN - August 25, 2008

I've found some Japanese menu screens of Sluggers. Here are some:

Most of these are from my website. --ItameMarioFan itameaMarioFan

cool =o King Mario f_KMThumbm_38614a2.png If you find the Full Character Selection with all the characters that are unlockable please tell me.

OMG!! It's a video![edit]

[2] No spoilers but its cool anyways...

This video does include handy information. I saw Peach and Luig don't share chemistry anymore. ArendLogoTransparent.pngrend (talk) (edits)

Mega Mushroom is NOT an item![edit]

From the article: Mega Mushroom - Turn giant and stomp a player by the home base.

On the Japanese site, you see Mario getting big and crushing Bowser Jr. near the base by pressing "B" faster than Bowser Jr.. In a new gameplay video on YouTube, the same happens, but with Dixie Kong and Peach. Dixie was runnning to the base, where Peach was. This time, they had to press "2", Dixie pressed "2" the fastest, but did NOT get big, instead, she tackled Peach with her ponytail. What I'm saying is that Mario didn't get big because of a Mega Mushroom, but because of his special attack. The one who presses the random button the fastest, uses his/her special move, Mario's being getting big, and Dixie's being her ponytail attack. FH-sprite.pngFreekhenstraFH-sprite.png

Team Names[edit]

What should we do about Bowser Jr.'s, and Birdo's team names? They're referred to as "Koopa Rookies" and "Catherine Lips" in the gameplay vids. Should we keep them as that for now, or change them to the inevitable (yet still unconfirmed) "Bowser Jr. Rookies" and "Birdo Lips"? -Moonshine

It makes sense to keep them as the Japanese names now, and change them once it is confirmed. MarioKun

Why is Bowser's team name "Bowser Monsters"? Shouldn't it be "Koopa Monsters", since Koopa is his Japanese name (Bowser Jr.'s Japanese team is also "Koopa Jr. Rookies"). Or did they start to use the name "Bowser" in Japanese as well? --Grandy02 13:17, 8 July 2008 (EDT)

Sorry, now I understand, because Bowser's team name was already in the precursor. Sorry again. --Grandy02 13:21, 8 July 2008 (EDT)

Character Types?[edit]

So i take that the type system (Balance, Technique, Speed, Power) from Mario Superstar Baseball was dropped? If it wasn't then could the characters be put into those cateogories, maybe? --Toadster749 19:12, 26 June 2008 (EDT)

I doubt it, besides, I think it's best for the U.S. (English) version to get released so that we can find out the real truth in terms of character types. I'm very sure there are Balance, Technique and Power types; but it's best to wait for confirmation on this. --M. C. - "Mario Gals" Enthusiast! 10:51, 27 June 2008 (EDT)

Dumb Trivia is Dumb[edit]

The trivia on this page is not only incorrect, but it should be on the Daisy Cruiser page. I can't edit this page so someone else needs to clean that up. MarioKun

Most of them are duplicate images, which means two or more images are the exact same thing. Plus, isn't most of this artwork older? For instance, none of these have nothing Baseball-related. TWG

I think all of them are older except the Baby DK one.--YOSHIANDLINK1 16:51, 1 July 2008 (EDT)

Yep, most of these images are "recicled", which means that producers utilize the same image in different games. I'll delete the duplicate ones, and we'll keep with the new as King Boo, baby Peach, baby Daisy, baby DK and the baby bros, because they were wanted...

I think it's also worth noting that the main source is from the recent update at the official Japan game site for Mario Super Sluggers. But yeah, I'm with Coincollector in saying that it's safe to concludee that the arts for King Boo, Baby Peach, Baby Daisy, Baby DK, Baby Mario & Baby Luigi were indeed to be mainly targeted for Mario Super Sluggers. Also the hi-res versions of those materials and the team captain arts have STILL yet to surface. *sighs* I wonder what's taking Nintendo so long to relay us the goods... MeritC

Wait! The Toad image should be kept because his jacket is red and not blue!

Aren't all of the older artworks with their karts? You don't delete an older artwork if there is a background difference, regardless if it is the same pose. You only do that if there's no difference. MarioKun

Are these the same artworks from Mario Kart Wii? They look the same. Also, you should've did a gallery instead of using gigantic images. MP8 DryBones.pngHappy Halloween! Bone Goomba.png

The New "Playable Characters" Layout[edit]

I like it a lot!

But a lot of the pictures are empty...

I have a photo-editing program and i could make the color changes by using the official art. Would it be okay to do that and upload it, rather that having all those blank spots there?

well I doubt that there's gonna be images of the other yoshis, toads, kritters, etc but ok I understand King Mario f_KMThumbm_38614a2.png

Thanks, I'm glad people like the new layout. I based it off of the Brawl characters layout. A lot of them are indeed empty, but I think the Japanese site will continue to update the characters section. Maybe we won't get artwork for every color, but hopefully every character will get artworks of some kind. I thought about recoloring art as well, but as Grandy02 said, it's not allowed for a reason.

That Monty Mole picture is the REAL Mario Super Sluggers Monty Mole picture so I added it back.

I'm not so sure about the Paragoomba art though.....

In the case of the Monty art it's understood as I'm positive it's never been used before, but it is pretty crummy quality. Hopefully that will be one we get in a site character update.FD09

Yeah. I can't find that image in better quality.

But, he have images for Dry Bones in MP8, Hammer Bro. in MP8, Koopa in NSMB, Magikoopa in SMG, Paragoomba, and Boo from MP8.

So we could put those images on the playable characters lay out until the japanese site confirms those are the real images for those characters.....Myeah.

I know I don't have any proof, but it clearly says in the game that Black Shy Guy is Gray Shy Guy. But it also refers to him as Black Shy Guy. It really depends which part of the game that you're in. Challenge Mode for example refers to him as gray!--PeteyPiranhaLover 10:43, 1 September 2008 (EDT)

Then go by which is used more, or more commonly. You don't need something like a reference or source material for something so simple. FD09

Yeah, the profiles and statistics sections would greatly benefit from the information on the cards. Also, special move and stage articles would benefit.

Secondary Teams[edit]

Super-Yoshi recently undid an edit because it was a "secondary team."

Red Toad = Toad[edit]

Well I thought I'd just bring this up as I believe that the red toad is infact Toad. Like how yoshi is sometimes called green yoshi in other spin off titles, he is just named red toad to differentiate from the other toads. It also strongly resembles him as he has a good relationship with Toadette, his bio from superstar baseball notes him strongly like Toad, his importance in the intro and overall scenes(why would they make a random toad so important in the cutscenes unless he was an important toad?), and also his chemistry from superstar baseball has him with good terms with peach, toadette and bad with Wario possibly noting Wario's woods. he's also important in the opening of superstar baseball as well. The reason why he has a red jacket was so he symbolizes the red colour more instead of showing blue as Blue Toad is already there. User:Pichufan93

Well, I was reading the Alternate Team Players section and I noticed that it looks quite empty with no artwork, so I decided to make some myself which I think I made in a good quality, and I know it's not official but I think it'll help to make the article look a bit better, and it helps with a visual concept of the characters, so if anyone has opinions, supports or opposes, please say so, I don't want to upload them and then knowing that those got deleted by any reason.

I know, although I wouldn't call it fan-made artwork, you saw it, it's just a palette swap. And I think it'd look better than in-game screenshots, and it'd fill up some empty space. Castle Toad (talk)
If it's a palette swap, then the official artwork was changed, thus making it unofficial unless Nintendo changed the colours, which they did not.--vellidragon 18:52, 12 October 2010 (UTC)

Can you answer my above comment, then? It's been here for 5 months.

Assistant captain? What kind of term is that in that article? The term for that is simply "captain". I'm pretty sure this term is referring to story mode, where you can't face the "assistant" captain without facing the "leader" captain. It's basically saying that they are not the leader of the team for Story Mode, unlike the Exhibition mode where they can be the leader.

Look at the Bowser Monsters page. It says that next to Bowser Jr.

Characters section[edit]

I have a question. May we take screenshots of the characters in the character selection screen for the table instead of resorting to gameart? I have a Dolphin emulator right now and I am able to take high quality screenshots. I was just thinking about this earlier because we can provide images for the colored team players as well. If you haven't noticed, I've upload high quality screenshots for Mario Superstar Baseball for the tables and it looks splendid. If you disagree, then that's ok. I was just thinking of a way to add some images to the colored team players tables. And if you do agree to this, unfortunately, I lack a completed save for the file so I may not have the unlockable characters yet. BabyLuigiFire.png Ray Trace(T|C)

If it's possible, yeah; but the roadblocks are these -- if you're referring to the Team Players portion -- the Main Team Players chart is fine. However, if you're targeting the Alternate Team Players portion, where in the game would you take screenshots of the characters? Challenge Mode roster itself, or when you get word about those alternate Team Players joining the team? --M. C. - "Mario Gals" Fan! User Page | Talk Page 00:05, 21 September 2011 (EDT)
Well, in the character select screen for minigames such as Toy Field or say Bob-omb Derby, a character does an animation when you choose him. It's pretty similar to that of Superstar Baseball except you have to choose him in order for him to appear. M&SG already took a screenshot of what it would look like, except the version I will take is not full-screen and it will be cropped smaller.

I just personally thought it would be nice to fill out the image-less sections with these, since they are the next best option considering the work I have done on Mario Superstar Baseball article.

Reasons Unreleased in Europe and Australia?[edit]

For what main reason was this game not released in Europe and Australia? We know that Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars originally was not released in those two countries since that game was under construction with Super Mario 64 and the Nintendo 64 console simultaneously but then made its way to those two countries for the first time officially on Virtual Console. Perhaps the main reason Mario Super Sluggers did not make its way to Europe and Australia would be primarily that it was under construction at the same time as Mario Kart Wii. --PrincessDaisyFanatic3883 18:20, 28 February 2012 (EST)

Proposal: In character articles, in their appearances by date chart, stop pointing out unlockable (challenge mode) in the description column.[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.

keep "unlockable" in description column 1-6
Okay, so I believe that this section in the tables is not noteworthy. Seeing as out of 41 characters in the game, only two character are starting characters in the mode (Mario and Luigi), that description is not noteworthy. 39 out of 41 characters are unlockable in that mode so that sure is a huge proportion. My suggestion is to stop listing that detail due to it not being noteworthy. Non-noteworthy things that are not noteworthy in this same way in the trivia sections of articles get removed so why do we have this?

  1. Ghost Jam (talk) - More, accurate information is better than less, per standard Wiki editing practices.
  2. Walkazo (talk) - Per Ghost Jam. Plus, acting as if there needs to be a cutoff number of default players before the rest can be called "unlockable" is a judgment call without any canon basis whatsoever, and thus, has no place on the wiki.

  6. Lumastar (talk) Per all.


First, where is it noted? (seems I'm not good at finding stuff) Also, this is a wiki. If you feel it's better this way, why not just changing it? I don't think there is major disagreement, so this should be closed by Rule 15. YoshiCGicon.pngTSUNAMIArtwork of Plessie with the four playable characters, from Super Mario 3D World.

Right, if all unlockable characters are unlocked in Challenge Mode, there is no need for that, so just do it. I don't see anyone disagreeing with this.

The information in question is listed in the individual character pages. I assume since the complain is specifically about information on the lists regarding Mario Super Sluggers, the TTP was put here. As this involves a large handful of character articles and not specifically this one, I'd have made this a normal proposal. That said, I'd still like to see a few specific examples, as most of them seem to say "playable character" and little else on the appearance by date chart (for those characters that have a chart). -- Shyghost.PNGGhost JamShyghost.PNG 18:05, 16 November 2014 (EST)
So what happened was me not checking myself enough. I have compiled a list of several different characters listing on what it says in that category. The list:

So these pages seem to have that extra detail on them:




But these pages don't:









The unfortunate part of this is that I notice that potential unwanted piece of information on the Daisy article and then double checked myself to see if it was common throughout the entire wiki on the Peach article and both pages ended up being in the minority group among whether or not this detail was present making me thing it was on far more articles than it actually was. On the articles I checked just now, the presence of the detail was 3 yes-8 no. Also as a mark for more potential things that need improvement, the Bowser page has an incomplete table while many others not on this list were excluded because there was no table like that on that specific article.

3D Player 2010 18:37, 16 November 2014 (EST)

That's a good reason, but is this proposal really necessary? This is a wiki: a place where anyone can edit information. Unless it's about something nobody cares about, there are always people that can fix the information. That doesn't mean you can call Peach a swear word or say how bad Bowser's plans are on the wiki, but it means that you can fix an encyclopedia without filling the books with pen marks and sticky notes. Don't worry if you fix the tables without a proposal; there's always somebody who can fix it right up. Proposals are mostly for merging pages, creating pages, editing the Mario Wiki guidelines, and other debatable stuff like that. Madz the Penguin (talk) 21:23, 17 November 2014 (EST)
Generally speaking, any topic that would effect a handful of pages, involve longstanding traditions, spark new discussions on touchy topics or otherwise bring about a more than slightly editorial change are all candidates for proposals. There is a lot of wiggle room built into the process so we can shut down proposals on banned topics or to just give an automatic administrative green light, but by and large we prefer that a topic be brought to at least an administrator if it has potentially long reaching consequences.
Further, some of your assertions are off, but they aren't unreasonable assumptions. Mergers normally only need proposals if they are going to cause problems, creating articles do not need proposals (and are normally closed via Rule 15, but exceptions do exist) and Wiki policy/guideline proposals are normally closed on sight and move to administrative discussion.
For the proposal specifically, it started out looking like a standard "stuff needs to be gone" editorial issue. Removals that aren't part of the normal curating process are routinely brought to the community before steps are taken for several reasons. As it turns out, it looks like it was data that was either intended to be added to the lot or was for some reason removed from the lot, with a couple stragglers that missed the purge. It's also opened us up to the greater issue that many of our character page charts need to be improved. -- Shyghost.PNGGhost JamShyghost.PNG 06:07, 22 November 2014 (EST)

My opinion: It's better if we clarify who's default in every mode except Challenge. Think Challenge Mode like the Subspace Emissary, both can unlock all characters and not every otherwise-default character is available. Otherwise, listing these characters as "unlockable" is confusing, and we don't want that. But either way, this doesn't really call for any major changes, especially considering that few pages have the silly detail anyway. Icon showing how many lives Mario has left. From Super Mario 64 DS.

So what do you think we should do with this proposal? Most of us agreed that it was unnecessary, so should we end it before the deadline? Madz the Penguin (talk) 00:34, 20 November 2014 (EST)
Maybe support it or something. Icon showing how many lives Mario has left. From Super Mario 64 DS. It's me, Mario! (Talk / Stalk) 00:47, 20 November 2014 (EST)
As the proposal seems like it is going to fail, I'm thinking I might just add more detail to the tags to make them more clear instead when it passes it's deadline. 3D Player 2010 07:16, 27 November 2014 (EST)

YP Quiz Questions[edit]

Where inside or outside of the game do I find the answer for the "point difference in a mercy game in baseball"? By "inside/outside of the game", I mean like EG, "how many gondolas are on the Ferris wheel?" I can solve that by going to the ferris wheel in Yoshi Park and looking at it. The answer is six. But for "how many tentacles does Blooper have?", the answer is ten. Because in general, despite seeing eight tentacles on Blooper, it's referring to squids in general biology. Squids have 10 tentacles in real life so the answer is ten. So where inside or outside of the game can I find the answer for the number of points scored when the mercy rule is activated/in use? Also, this question won't let me pass: "if you have a koopa, paratroopa, paragoomba, and boo, how many wings do you have?". I keep punching in 8 as 4 characters X 2 wings = 8 wings total. Help me please on this as well.-- 19:46, 21 July 2016 (EDT)

First of all, it's four wings, as only two of the mentioned characters have wings. Second, I believe the mercy point difference is 10? *looks it up* Yeah, that sounds right. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 20:31, 21 July 2016 (EDT)

References to other games[edit]

I think this needs a "References to other games" section. Baby Peach appears as a playable character, and, that's a reference to Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time. Should we add that section? Sprite of an Ice Snifit in Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga. LED42™ (talkedits) 15:45, 24 September 2017 (EDT)

That in and of itself is not a reference. Otherwise, Mario would be a reference to Donkey Kong. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 15:46, 24 September 2017 (EDT)

...good gravy, there is a lot of stuff here. Are there articles and such about how to steal bases or pitching and whatnot? Not sure if we have any of those, so... Magolor04726 (talk) 13:32, March 1, 2020 (EST)Magolor04726

Maybe I wasn't clear on what I was asking... is there a sections on how to steal bases, throw to first/second/third from the pitchers mound and other plays? I looked at gameplay but didn't see anything about how to. It stated that it was possible, but there was no elaboration. Of course, I could just be looking in the wrong area... -Mags (talk) 19:30, June 28, 2020 (EDT)

Challenge Mode[edit]

Since I brought up the Controls, what about the Challenge Mode? I don't think we have an article of any sort on that. -Mags (talk) 18:38, July 4, 2020 (EDT)
