WHY ARE YOU MAKING AN ARTICLE FOR A NON-MARIO GAME ON SUPER MARIO WIKI!!?!?!?! Seriously! "Punch-Out Wii!!" ISN'T a Mario Game! Mario Wiki only has Mario characters, Mario games and non-Mario characters that appear ONLY in Mario games! But making an article for a non-Mario game on Super Mario Wiki is... IT DOESN'T EVEN MAKE SENCE, I MEAN... The only reason non-Mario characters appear in this wiki is because they appear in a Super Smash Bros. game. Plus ALL Super Smash Bros. games are available in this wiki because it has some Mario characters in them. Same goes for all other wikis that have a seperate series in them.

Donkey Kong is a major opponent in the game, you'd know this if you played the game/read the article. Plus the series has ties to the Mario series with Mario appearing as the ref in the first and Peach being originally intended to appear as an opponent in this one.

Yeah, Donkey Kong makes a guest appearance here, meaning the game gets partial coverage (i.e. just an article for the game, and a section in the Donkey Kong article's history section). Admittedly, the article was written in a way that did not make the significance of Donkey Kong's appearance easily understood, so I added an image and some more information to try to make it clearer why this page exists. - Walkazo 20:14, 29 January 2015 (EST)
I found these things on Wikipedia and on videos on YouTube a long time ago. I don't have the game but oh well. Now I know why you do this. Thanks for the info for telling why! Sarantis (talk) 12:08, 30 January 2015 (EST)

It's fine to have the references list as a summary, as well as the main game article. I've gone and replaced the Wikipedia link with the article link over on the references page.

Wouldn't that go against MarioWiki:Once and only once? --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 15:20, 14 November 2016 (EST)

I made a similar argument for Talk:Tetris DS#Character Artwork and Merge Suggestion Questions why this article shouldn't exist and should be merged with List of Mario references in video games. --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 17:19, 17 May 2017 (EDT)
