Talk:Mario is Missing!

I have a question about this game: I have heard that there is an unnamed woman resembling Daisy in this game. Other things say it was Daisy. Are the people who say it is Daisy just too lazy to say it just looked liked Dasiy? Or has it been proven that it was Daisy and people are too lazy to go back and change what they said about it was an unnamed woman resembling Daisy? WK

I've heard no proof of it. — Stooben Rooben 20:56, 19 August 2008 (EDT)

Actually there is a women that resembles Daisy, but there is no proof that it's really her. Here's the picture:Daisy%20in%20mario%20missing.jpg


Should we mention Weegee on this page? OR should we save that stuff for UnMario? YoshiKart 22:17, 1 January 2009 (EST)

It fanon. That stuff should be at UnMarioWiki. YS Grape Artwork.pngGrapes YS Grape Artwork.png


I forget if I'm thinking of this or Mario's Time Machine, but there's a question in one of those two that asks "Who painted the Sistine Chapel?". The correct answer is Michaelangelo, and the other choices are Leonardo, Raphael (I believe) and Splinter. Would this count as a reference to Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles? Magikrazy51 (talk)

Separate pages?[edit]

As with quite a few 8-16 bits era simultaneous release, the three versions of Mario is Missing! aren't "ports" as much as different games that happen to share a premise and similar assets (same goes for Mario's Time Machine). Wouldn't it be more advisable to have separate pages? --Glowsquid (talk) 07:23, 15 August 2013 (EDT)

It's better than constantly saying, "In this version, this happens, but in that version, this happens unlike the other four versions" so we should probably split it into three. It really depends on how similar these games are, because it can qualify for an extensive "version differences" page. I'm blessed to have never played this game, I guess, so I don't have sufficient knowledge to have a solid conclusion. Mario Green.pngKaBoom! 14:48, 9 May 2014 (EDT)
I'd definitely agree with at least the NES version of Mario's Time Machine since it's an entirely different game, but I'm on the fence with the rest since it appears the other console versions mostly condense, rearrange or omit existing material rather than add new things (except relatively minor gameplay elements like Koopaling encounters and the time travel minigame). Right now, Mario's Time Machine for NES would be the best place to start - the others would probably require a more comprehensive look to grasp what exactly is different enough.

Capitalization of the "is"[edit]

"Is" is usually not supposed to be capitalized in a title. Does anyone have a source of it being capitalized like that? PikaSamus (talk) 14:43, 9 May 2014 (EDT)

Consider the subpages, "List of Mario is Missing! staff" and "List of quotes in Mario is Missing!". I have no idea why "Is" is capitalized. Mario Green.pngKaBoom! 14:50, 9 May 2014 (EDT)
From what I've seen around the net the "Is" is capitalized in the game name. Yoshi876 (talk)
Even Wikipedia? Mario Green.pngKaBoom! 15:25, 9 May 2014 (EDT)
Walkazo said that the instruction book that "is" is lowercase, in an old move log. PikaSamus (talk) 16:18, 9 May 2014 (EDT)
Any other sources? Mario Green.pngKaBoom! 16:30, 9 May 2014 (EDT)
You can't use the game itself as a source, and pretty much all other things are invalid, as Nintendo doesn't list any games before the DS on its site other than those on the specific game support thing, along with the fact that everything else is pretty much unofficial. It is only called "Mario Is Missing!" right now due to what some guy called "improper capitalization" by reverting Walkazo. It was originally capitalized because SmartieMaxx apparently just felt like it. PikaSamus (talk) 19:07, 9 May 2014 (EDT)
Ummmmm, what? The games and game manuals are primary resources: they're the best things to cite (especially with scans, screenshots and youtube videos to back it up). And I checked the SNES manual (and you can see it for yourselves here) and it IS called "Mario is Missing!" multiple times, including the copyright note. I'm not sure why I didn't change it back immediately last time - maybe because it is called "is" everywhere else on the Internet and I didn't remember that I'd already proven the case for "is" before, but whatever: everywhere else on the Internet is wrong, and I'm gonna change our article back now. Better late than never. - Walkazo 19:29, 9 May 2014 (EDT)
This wiki is probably the reason everywhere else followed our incorrect heed and got it wrong. XD Mario Green.pngKaBoom! 19:31, 9 May 2014 (EDT)
I meant that you can't use the game itself as a source since it's all in capitals. PikaSamus (talk) 20:27, 9 May 2014 (EDT)
Ah, I see, just a little ambiguity. But the issue should be resolved by now, right? Mario Green.pngKaBoom! 20:28, 9 May 2014 (EDT)
Well except for the fact that Yoshi876 accidentally broke the move by placing a delete tag on Talk:Mario is Missing! (this link will probably just be bold later) PikaSamus (talk) 20:30, 9 May 2014 (EDT)
Ah, okay. And oops, I didn't notice that the talk page stayed put (my internet cut out in the middle of the move, so things got a little screwy on my end - I know, excuses excuses). Fixing it now... - Walkazo 20:37, 9 May 2014 (EDT)


Not to come off as a troll or a jerk, but there is a flaw. According to the list of Mario games Mariowiki fandom powered by wikia, the alphabetical list, the 1990 Nelsonic wrist watch LCD game Luigi's hammer toss game was the first game to star Luigi. Just trying to help. Lord Falafel (talk) 21:20, May 22, 2019 (EDT)

Ah, wikia. Always confusing people.
I've never even heard of that game, never mind the fact it came out seven years after Mario Bros. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 21:25, May 22, 2019 (EDT)


There is a deluxe version of this game Bobster (talk) 10:59, June 16, 2020 (EDT)

We do make a small note of that in the opening paragraph and cover it in the gameplay section. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 11:03, June 16, 2020 (EDT)
