Yep, I cancelled the other proposal. It seems that this is the only article on a paper enemy that has never appeared outside the Paper Mario series. Look at Tower Power Pokey. He has only ever appeared in Sticker Star and Paper Jam. We don't have an article on Paper Tower Power Pokey for this reason. Sombrero Guy has only appeared in Sticker Star, Paper Jam, and Color Splash. So why do we have this page? I propose we merge this page into Sombrero Guy. Who's with me?

Support[edit]

  1. YoshiFlutterJump (talk) Per my proposal.
  2. 7feetunder (talk) Per proposal.
  3. Yoshi the SSM (talk) Per proposal.
  4. Waluigi Time (talk) Per all. There's no reason to differentiate the paper version if there's no normal version to begin with.
  5. TheFlameChomp (talk) While I assisted in splitting the paper enemy articles from the normal enemy articles, I do feel that it makes sense to keep Sombrero Guys and Tower Power Pokey merged since there are no normal versions of them.
  6. Toadette the Achiever (talk) Per TheFlameChomp.
  7. Niiue (talk) Per all.
  8. LUIGIRULES71 (talk) Per YoshiFlutterJump and TheFlameChomp.

  1. Alex95 (talk) - "Look at Tower Power Pokey. He has only ever appeared in Sticker Star and Paper Jam. We don't have an article on Paper Tower Power Pokey for this reason." Ah, thanks, I knew we missed one :P Anyway, coming off of one of my proposals, Paper Sombrero Guy was split due to consistency. I suppose there'd be no harm in merging it back, but then it'd be inconsistent with the other paper enemies that also have "paper" in the name.
  2. Chat Man (talk) I was gonna agree with this at first, but Alex95 intrigued me. After all Paper Tower Power Pokey has the royal sticker, but is still a separate character (I think). But I think this would mess up the Shiny Character Pages, which have never appeared outside of Sticker Star or Paper Jam. I'd rather split one page for a good reason, then merge several for a decent one.

Comments[edit]

@Alex95: I think we should merge back enemies that only have Paper forms in the first place. So if Tower Power Pokey has only a paper form, Paper Tower Power Pokey should be merged back to Power Tower Pokey and redirected there. I don't think there's much point into having two articles about pretty much same character. BabyLuigiFire.png Ray Trace(T|C) 17:15, 17 November 2017 (EST)

We actually don't have an article on Paper Tower Power Pokey, which is one of the main reasons why we should merge. But if this proposal fails, we're also splitting Paper Tower Power Pokey and Tower Power Pokey. I don't exactly like that idea, but it's better than the way it is now. -YFJ (talk · edits) 17:21, 17 November 2017 (EST)
Like I said, there wouldn't be any harm in this passing, but the Paper Sombrero Guy (and its shiny counterpart) being on the main Sombrero Guy page would look inconsistent with everything else. I don't remember why Paper Tower Power Pokey wasn't split, either I forgot or a decision was made somewhere... Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 17:21, 17 November 2017 (EST)
i thought we were gonna merge all of the Bloody Paper Forms with their normal non-flat forms until i read it. Hmmm. seems Like he [YoshiFlutterJump] has Got Good points. it gets my Vote. By The Way Happy Thanksgiving Everybody. LUIGIRULES71
Sorry, none of the paper enemies are covered in blood, so that's a moot point. Also you too. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 18:04, 30 November 2017 (EST)
