Talk:Mushroom Genie

From the Super Mario Wiki, the Mario encyclopedia

Split Mushroom Genie and Genie of the Lamp into separate articles[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.

split 4-2
These characters have a similar role and are summoned by similar means, but they look and act very differently; the Mushroom Genie is more lean and gentle to its master, whereas the Genie of the Lamp is far larger and rougher, not to mention they appear to have a different mushroom cap as well as a slightly different outfit. If this proposal passes, I might make a similar proposal for Magic Lamp and Genie Lamp.

Proposer: LinkTheLefty (talk)
Deadline: December 21, 2014, 23:59 GMT.

Support[edit]

  1. LinkTheLefty (talk) Per proposal.
  2. SuperYoshiBros (talk) It's pretty obvious they're different characters. They have different names (even in Japan, which is pretty much solid proof based on past merges/splits) and look pretty different too. Also, even if they do the exact same thing, the way they execute it is different too.
  3. Time Turner (talk) The differing names, looks, personalities, and actions suggest to me that these are different characters. Per all.
  4. Warioad (talk) Per all.

Oppose[edit]

  1. River Piranha (talk) Hardly worth worrying about for such a minor character, and the two articles created from the split would both be extremely short.
  2. Mario (talk) The Japanese names aren't extremely drastic (Mushroom Genie, Genie of the Lamp), and I view the Mario Party 4 incarnation of the genie to be more of a drastic redesign rather than a separate character. So, I'm leaning toward keeping them merged.

Comments[edit]

@River Piranha: The importance of the character(s) and the length of the resulting articles are irrelevant here; what matters is whether or not they deserve to be split. Hello, I'm Time Turner.

I always thought the Genie in Mario Party 4 is supposed to be a joke (a normally muscular Genie lets himself go) to the older Mario Party games. Not to mention, both their outfits and their mustache are the same. It can be just a drastic redesign. Mario Green.pngKaBoom! 22:01, 9 December 2014 (EST)

     Please notice, the Genie of the Lamp has feet, but the Mushroom Genie does not. Warioad (talk) 19:53, 10 December 2014 (EST)
