Talk:Mother Brain

From the Super Mario Wiki, the Mario encyclopedia

Doesn't this belong to List of Implied Characters? She was only mentioned by name and we don't cover Captain N but its main article. She might appear in a WarioWare microgame, but as far as I know, we don't create articles because a being appears in a short microgame (then we would also need to make articles on Eggplant Wizard, Excitebiker, Ducks, Duck Hunt Dog, Nintendogs and many more). --Grandy02 08:19, 7 August 2008 (EDT)

You're mixing up secondary and tertiary importance. In a tertiary importance, characters are listed on the page (Pokemon, Assist Trophy), but in secondary importance, all characters deserve articles. However, no one seems to have made articles on those pages you mentioned... yet. 23:05, 22 December 2008 (EST)
Actually, according to MarioWiki: Importance Policy, there "are no article limits for any area of focus." Since it appears in a cross-over series (Captain N), it can have its own article, as well as each individual Pokemon and Assist Trophy. That does not mean we can't merge info, but Pokemon and Assist Trophies don't have to be merged. And I think all those articles you listed should be created in some form. -- Son of Suns (talk)
I'd go with a "List of Characters in WarioWare Microgames" for the officially named characters (and recurring unnamed characters like the snot nose woman). If this article stays, do all the other Captain N (and Captain Rainbow?) characters also deserve articles? Sorry, I know that I asked a similar question before, but I'm not sure whether separate articles or lists (I'd prefer the latter one) should be used. About Mother Brain, it would get redundant when she is both described in the Captain N and WarioWare characters list, so this article should stay in this case. But by that logic, Excitebikers, the Devil, Little Mac, Nintendogs and so on also appear in multiple relevant media, so they would need own articles, too. Well, I don't have something against covering those all in some way, but some users even wanted to get rid off the Captain Rainbow article. --Grandy02 11:09, 6 January 2009 (EST)
Nothing inherently deserves an article, and nothing inhernetly deserves a list. It depends on individual decisions and/or consensus from the community. It wouldn't really be that odd to have articles about those characters that appear in multiple media, seeing that we have articles about Mega Man, Chucky, and Street Fighter characters, and they only appear in one series (I think). Personally I think everything with an official name should have an article, regardless of the media. Again, the content is protected, so we can write about all the characters in Captain N and Captain Rainbow, but it's kinda up to whoever actually writes that information to first decide whether the information is in a list or is seperated into articles. -- Son of Suns (talk)
