- We don't know if the racoons in Mario Sunshine are Tanookis or not. Para Yoshi Wahoo! 15:59, 17 February 2007 (EST)
Tanookis are real, we just dont know if the ones in SMS are. Full Metal Moogle
The template seems strange to me, since Tanookis only appeared in one game. Well, they exist outside of the game, but there also Octopus beneath the conjecturally named boss. The article's title is either official or pure conjecture. --Grandy02 15:32, 20 November 2008 (EST)
- The template means that some of the info is officially referring to the concept of "Tanooki," while other elements have not been explicitly labeled as "Tanooki," but seem to be referring to the same central topic. For example, "Tanooki" officially refers to the Tanooki Suit and other similar topics, which conjecturally relates to the unnamed raccoon species the article refers to as "Tanooki." -- Son of Suns
Platitudinous (talk) Let's stop worrying about whether or not the name is conjectural. Why can the Tanooki/racoon (yes, it's ironic that I did that) in the blue coin hut keep all those Shines and get away with it? Similar things apply to characters elsewhere on the island as well.
"In Super Smash Bros. Brawl, one of the names that can be gotten from pressing the "RANDOM NAME" button is TNUKI, a reference to the Tanookis." It may just as well simply be a reference to the folkloric creature (Tanuki) and not the Isle Delfino Tanookis (somewhat more likely actually, since the "u" is used here).--vellidragon 10:27, 5 December 2009 (EST)
