Talk:Pikmin

From the Super Mario Wiki, the Mario encyclopedia

Does this also warrant deletion? They only make cameos as well. They do, however affect a microgame and if a golf ball hits them, they flee. Is that enough?Knife (talk) 14:21, 3 March 2007 (EST)

no! Max2 (talk)

It's enough. They affect a microgame, and gameplay effects them. If Super Smash Bros had not been made, Samus would still be here because gameplay effects her in MARPGIO. - Ultimatetoad

Actually, Samus doesn't really do anything in Super Mario RPG, shes just kind of, there. -- Sir Grodus

But when you talk to her, she says "I'm resting for Mother Brain..." This shows that gameplay effects HER, if she does'nt effect gameplay. - Ultimatetoad 19:07, 3 March 2007 (EST)

Kind of like Link, right?--Aipom_Banana_2.gif Aipom 424.png--

Right.Olimar, has never APPEARED in a Mario game aside from trophy, and that tech demom (which may/maynot have) been him. Sonic and Earthworm Jim......That was ridiculous. - Ultimatetoad 19:11, 3 March 2007 (EST)

So... is that a yes or a no?Knife (talk) 23:45, 3 March 2007 (EST)

Pikmin should stay. They made a cameo, and well...well they should be in the wiki, they are worth mentioning. Little Mouser.PNGPaper Jorge (Talk·Contribs)|

I don't think cameos are supposed to be taken seriously, but I guess they should stay...Knife (talk) 00:16, 4 March 2007 (EST)

I think there should be a List of cameo by non-Marioverse character in Mario game. page.We could put in page like this one or the Sonic and Earthworm Jim page. User:Gofer

I suggested something like that a while back, but nothing really came of it; sounds like a good idea though, how does "List of cameo appearances by non-Marioverse character in Mario game" or something like that sound. -- Sir Grodus

Better than mine. User:Gofer

Yeah, that is a great idea! Where did you suggest that? Anyway, we can solve the cameo problem like Ridley appearing in SMBM or any others. I think it should be called just List of Cameos. I'll work on it right now.Knife (talk) 12:59, 4 March 2007 (EST)

Whether or not a cameo is supposed to be taken seriously should not be the point, IMO. Isn't this Wiki about information involving all things Mario? I would think that cameos should be here, too if that's the case. But that's just my opinion ;) --Stumpers

I just think that a list is much better than individual articles. Lets vote:

Oppose[edit]

  1. Stumpers-- Isn't the purpose of the Mario Wiki to get away from declaring things too minor to merit an article? That's why I left the original Wikipedia. ;(
  2. Caith_Sith-- Pikmin is a specie independient from Olimar and, in the same way as we have an article independient for Gordo or Waddle Dee -just creatures from a character attack-, Pikmin need an separate article. We have "Marioverse info" about Pikmin, they affect the gameplay, we can talk about her color differences... isn't minor and there are characters after all. If we merge Pikmin with Olimar, we need to merge Pokémon Trainer with Squirtle, Charizard and Ivysaur, and Waddle Dee, Gordo and Waddle Doo with King Dedede. Thats my opinion...

Comments[edit]

Do these Pikmin affect gameplay? If yes, keep as an independent article. If no, move Pikmin to a cameos page or something. -- Son of Suns

No,they don't affect the gameplay in any way.User:Gofer

That's why we'd make a cameo list for tiny cameos.--Aipom_Banana_2.gif Aipom 424.png--

  • (I'm talking to Stumpers)The problem is that the Pikmins are not revalent to this wiki.The Mario wiki was made because you could'nt make a Wikipedia article for say,Barney Bubble.Making article about every characters making a tiny cameo in a Mario game would ruin the essence of the wiki.Using your logic,I could make an article about Bruce Lee because he was mentioned in Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars

User:Gofer

Now that we have the whole "implied" thing, you probably could make an article on him. -- Sir Grodus


We have to have a boundary line somewhere. - Ultimatetoad

Maybe,but making an article on him would be rather stupid as Sonic and Earthworm Jim were deleted for the same reason. User:Gofer

I'm beggining to think the whole implied thing wasn't as good as it seemed. -- Sir Grodus

Implied is good for Marioverse characters,not characters whose only connection with the Marioverse is a gun in a trash can. User:Gofer

I've started this discussion on the main page.--Aipom_Banana_2.gif Aipom 424.png--

Alien?[edit]

Just saying... Isn't Olimar considered an alien?Δ ΔTheuseD.PNGΔ Δ

There's an article for Olimar too, so you could post this over there if no one responds here. Stumpers! 01:41, 27 June 2008 (EDT)

Rock Pikmin[edit]

Since we have a description on all the different types of Pikmin, should we add this as well ? JackpotPersonolisedMiion3DS.JPGJordan 15:06, 5 November 2012 (EST)
