Hk's Revamp[edit]

I'm planning to revamp this article soon guys. Any suggestions?SaudyTalk!

Not knowing the game, I guess you can do as usual by adding the courses and the gameplay modes. I think it would also fit to add how the game is controlled (like it was done in SSBM). - Cobold (talk · contribs) 16:00, 18 June 2007 (EDT)
K. (I'm gonna play it a lot in the next few days cuz its teh pwnz, and this is a good excuse to.)SaudyTalk!
That's cool. It was one of the articles I was planning on doing over in the near future. If you're doing this, I can focus on the Mario Golf games. Sweet. Here's my brainstorm so far.
  • Game Play overview
    • Game Modes
      • Tourament, Exhibition, Ring, Bowser Court (part of Exhibition), Piranha Challenge, etc.
    • Multiplayer
    • GBC Link
  • Characters
    • Include transfer characters from GBC
    • Include how to unlock all characters
    • Star Characters
  • Courses
    • Include how to unlock each
  • Records
    • What is recorded? (trophies, match-ups, etc)
  • Critical Reception
  • Sources/Bibliography
Thanks for being willing to do this. I'm actually kinda sad I won't get to do it. Well, who knows. We all need a little help, right? Let me know if you need info or a section or whatever, as this game was my obsession for months/years. Man, I remember the days when I would play it with my brother and a friend... I only lost once to her! Stumpers! 00:15, 19 June 2007 (EDT)

D.K. Jr's last game[edit]

I think it is strange that this article has no mention of this being D.K. Jr's last game due to him being replaced by diddy kong in mario spinoff games.User:Partytoad Yes, it is strange. Glitchy Missingno.jpeg SuperfiremarioGlitchy Missingno.jpeg

Court Info[edit]

The courts should definantly have their own page. Information can be added to them such as ball speed, appearances of the court, etc. Kobble

Not all of the courts available in the game are displayed here. There are courts to be unlocked using passwords in the special games, like the IGN court, or the mariotennis.com court. I don't know how to unlock them though. Cwjakesteel

Something about the GBC characters...[edit]

Actually, I think the GBC characters' classification varies depending on the stats you give them in the GBC games. Could you fix that? Rabidchomp 12:37, 17 August 2009 (EDT)

VC[edit]

Platitudinous (talk) The game was released on the North American Virtual Console today, June 28.

characters?[edit]

are the transfer-exclusive characters completly gone then in the VC version? Lu-igi board

Color Schemes[edit]

I think we should mention all of the color schemes for the characters.I dont even know what they are. yoshiyoshiyoshi (talk)

I don't think that's important enough to be mentioned. Mario4Ever

Yes, it is not important enough to be put into the article. Glitchy Missingno.jpeg SuperfiremarioGlitchy Missingno.jpeg

Maybe we should add them in the Mario Tennis section of each individual character. YoshiHeadSSBU.png Tails777 Talk to me!SSBUStockIcon - Robin.png
What use does it provide to our readers? We don't mention the color schemes of each character in Brawl. Why should this be different? Mario4Ever
Well I think we should. I've seen other wikis and they had the alternate color schemes in them. Why doesn't this wiki? YoshiHeadSSBU.png Tails777 Talk to me!SSBUStockIcon - Robin.png

Move to Mario Tennis (Nintendo 64) to Mario Tennis 64[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.

leave as it is 1-10
I think it would be better to call this article Mario Tennis 64 because most Nintendo 64 games end with 64. (example: Donkey Kong 64, Dr. Mario 64, Mario Kart 64) One reason is so we don't get confused with other Mario Tennis games in the series. (because they all share the same name as Mario Tennis.) Same with Mario Golf for the N64.

Proposer: Tails777 (talk)
Deadline: November 1, 2011, 23:59 GMT

Move to Mario Tennis 64[edit]

  1. Tails777 (talk) My proposal so per me.

Leave as it is[edit]

  1. Bop1996 (talk) Mario Tennis is the official name, even if Nintendo named other games with "64" at the end of them.
  2. Mario & Luigi (talk) Per Bop.
  3. MeritC (talk) My "personal" answer: No, no, no, no, no, no, no!!! It's fine as it is as far as I'm concerned (title wise for this wiki). Per all.
  4. M&SG (talk) - Mario Tennis 64 is not the official name of that game. Being an N64 title doesn't mean that its name has to end with 64.
  5. RandomYoshi (talk) - Per M&SG.
  6. Mario4Ever (talk) Per all.
  7. Walkazo (talk) - Per Bop1996.
  8. Magikrazy51 (talk) See my answer for this proposal.
  9. Toad85 (talk) - Last minute vote. Mario Tennis is the official name of the game. The boxart says it, Nintendo says it, Wikipedia says it, why shouldn't we say it too?
  10. MrConcreteDonkey (talk) - Per all.

Comments[edit]

Your proposal's deadline time was one day early, probably because you didn't convert to GMT before setting your deadline time. Bop1996 (Talk)

Well thanks for correcting me. Not good with time. Tails777 (talk)
No prob. It helps to have your time set to the server time in your preferences, to avoid confusion. Bop1996 (Talk)

After thinking about it, I have decided, after reading the votes of the opposers, that the article is fine the way it is. Can I request that this and the Mario Golf proposal be deleted? Tails777 (talk)

Pink Donkey Kong Junior?[edit]

This article and the Pink Donkey Kong Junior has stated that Donkey Kong Jr. has a pink alternate color, but nowhere else I see a mention of it. Not even in http://www.gamefaqs.com/n64/258820-mario-tennis/cheats, where they typically cover every hidden aspect of games. Is this false information? Mario Green.pngKaBoom! 13:23, 29 April 2012 (EDT)

I saw it in the game when I played it with my buddy a year ago ~ Qyzxf (talk)

Partners[edit]

Wasn't there info about partners assigned for doubles? What happened to it? Magikrazy (talk)

•Mario - Luigi •Luigi - Daisy •Peach - Mario •Daisy - Birdo •Toad - Peach •Waluigi - Paratroopa •Shy Guy - Bowser •Wario - Waluigi •Bowser - Boo •Donkey Kong Jr. - Donkey Kong •Donkey Kong - Toad •Yoshi - Baby Mario •Birdo - Yoshi •Baby Mario - Donkey Kong •Paratroopa - Bowser •Boo - Wario

I would add it myself, but I'm on a phone right now, and also I don't know how to make a table. Magikrazy (talk)

Last playable appearance of DK JR[edit]

Why can't we mention that this marks Donkey Kong Jr.'s final playable appearance until not counting later ports of his game of the same name and Super Mario Maker as a costume?--TheGreenBeetle (talk) 21:48, March 1, 2020 (EST)
