Who is removing the Big Cookie!?

I'm removing the fanon about Tayce T. and Zess T. being sisters. --Son of Suns 20:40, 19 July 2006 (EDT)
Put separate recipes in ( ), to save space. Wayoshi 20:42, 19 July 2006 (EDT)

Oh, it's you. Sorry. I'm annoyed because you keep removing Big Cookie. Oh, and I didn't know it was fanon... I remember the game mentioning that she had a sister in Toad Town that cooked.--Dreyfus2006 20:42, 19 July 2006 (EDT)

I think the game says that it is rumored she has a sister in Toad Town. However, if you can find an in-game source confirming they are indeed sisters, you can put the info back in. Sorry about the Big Cookie thing. --Son of Suns 20:45, 19 July 2006 (EDT)

I RIP CHUNKS OF MY OWN HAIR OUT when I search for Zess T. Recipes and cook a Mistake because I was using Tayce T., Saffron, or Dyliss Recipes instead! - Paperphailurethemariomonster99


For every recipe you include, could you add it to the Recipe Category?

I'm not sure who signed this, but I just added all PM2 items that have articles that are made by Zess T. (including the reverse Point Swap effect) into the Recipe Category. Everyone can help out by looking at Category:Recipes and adding it here. ;) Wayoshi 21:17, 19 July 2006 (EDT)

Thank you! I just forgot to sign.--Dreyfus2006 17:03, 20 July 2006 (EDT)

Too many?[edit]

Should we turn this into a page like Badges or Weapons (SMRPG)? There isn't really much to write about besides the recipe name, the game it was in, the combinations, the picture, and the sell price. This is a sample:

Name of Recipe Sprite Sell Price Ingredient(s) Effect
Apple Pie PaperMario Items ApplePie.png ? Apple
Cake Mix
Recovers 5 HP and 15 FP


I'm saying YYYEEESSS!!!! But how can you fit in all the ingredients in each item when it is made, seriously... RAP.pngRAP...

Sigh. Wayoshi's making me ask again, since I've been gone for 10 weeks. Can we merge the recipes page?Knife (talk) 23:25, 6 June 2007 (EDT)

Red Text[edit]

Uh, starting from "H" all the print between the ingrediants is red, even if it's a non-SPM recipe. Is this on purpose or a mistake? Either way it's confusing and I think we should switch the incorrecly red "+"s and "()"s and whatever to black like in the first few sections. - Walkazo

The recipes shouldnt be in red, as it may be confused with a broken link TucayoSig.png It should be changed to green

PS: And each cook should have its list

New Chart Format![edit]

I turned all the equations into charts, and as a result, I was able to do away with the stupid italics/boldface/green scheme, which was confusing and inconsistent. I replaced all the recipes that were already on the page and added a few more I found when double-checking certain things, but all the recipes aren't on here, and while the introduction says that's on purpose, I think it's pretty stupid considering this is the recipes page. All that aside, the new charts look like this:

Result Recipe Chef
Meteor Meal Shooting Star + Shroom Roast Zess T.
Shooting Star + Shroom Steak

I didn't include as many headers as Knife's example above because the sprites, selling price and effects are already covered on the product's page. I based it on the recipes included on some of the ingredient and product pages, only they list the recipe first, whereas I switch it around to show the alphabetical order. I also swapped the applicable games' titles for the chefs' names. - Walkazo 23:20, 23 June 2009 (EDT)

Recipe for land meal[edit]

I remeber making a bland meal with a mushroom and auper mushroom on my first playthrough of paper mario if anyone can confirm this a valid recipe can they edit the article, although if I find the time I'll probably test it for by myself

All paper Mario Recipes[edit]

I uploaded this photo as all the paper Mario Recipes. What should we do with it?

We can't really use this. The resolution is way too low. Mario Green.pngKaBoom! 14:00, 10 April 2014 (EDT)

What I said on the forums is basically all I'd like to say on the subject. To put it simply, the pages are useless. Besides all the problems with the articles themselves, like the vast number of missing images and the terrible formatting, they're redundant due to the other recipe pages we have, which compiles all of the same information in a simpler format, and I simply do not see anyone specifically looking for what combinations could be made with a single item. Personally, I would rather have what items were needed to create an item I want than have that information scattered across multiple sections or see which items that item itself could create. If I wanted something related to, say, Life Shrooms, I'd either go to its actual page (the individual pages all cover the same info as the "recipe by ingredients" pages, so no information would be lost) or the main Recipe page; sorting them by ingredients is simply an unnecessary step.

  1. Time Turner (talk) Per my proposal.
  2. Vommack (talk) Per all.
  3. SuperYoshiBros (talk) Per T.T.
  4. Mario (talk) When it comes to two nearly identical articles, the more poorly-formatted article should go. In this case, List of recipes by ingredient pages take the cake junk stew. They also break consistency since we don't create variations of list articles like the bestiaries.
  5. Walkazo (talk) - Per Time Turner and Mario.
  6. Baby Luigi (talk) These articles were VERY unnecessary. We don't need two articles describing the EXACT subject. As this one is the uglier one, it's going.
  7. Megadardery (talk) Per Time Turner
  8. Lumastar (talk) Kill it with fi- uh, I mean per all.
  9. LudwigVon (talk) By confusion, I change my vote. Per Time Turner.
  10. Magikrazy (talk) yeah, its too confusing. Delete the unnecessary ones.
  11. Stonehill (talk) At most, merge them with this page.
  12. Newbee (talk) Per TT.

Do not delete[edit]


Say, you said if one wanted to look up what one particular ingredient can do, one can simply look up the pages? Just playing devil's advocate, but wouldn't the List of Ingredients articles be a good at-a-glance resource rather than make someone repeatedly search several articles? Mario Green.pngKaBoom! 17:00, 12 February 2015 (EST)

If they wanted to glacne at a multitude of items at the same time, and I cannot think of a reason as to why they would want that, the standard Recipe pages easily fill in that role. After all, we have shortcuts like CTRL + F or ⌘ + F to help navigate lists. I could get that a person has one or two items in their inventory that are kind of useless, so they'd like to see if they could be combined into anything, but I seriously doubt that someone would have enough of those items at a single time to want a list specifically for that purpose. It'd be like if we created spin-offs of the bestiaries that organize enemies by their location; there's probably people who'd like to know which enemies are in a certain location, but who'd need to know all of the enemies in every location, especially when that information is also either on the individual location pages or the main bestiaries? Hello, I'm Time Turner.
Say, the person doesn't know about Ctrl+F, though. Admittedly, I don't know the proportion of the Internet population that doesn't know about the Ctrl+F feature to make this a valid problem. You do have a good point of how ridiculous it is to create variations of the bestiary article, though. In game, I can imagine one scenario where a "List by Ingredient" would come in handy: "Oh, look, Cake Mix! I wonder what that can be used in recipes", but I'd imagine a quick search accomplishes that better.
P.S. This harkens back in 2010 where I, still a teen at around 15, expressed my concerns about featuring BOTH "List of Tayce T. recipes" and List of Tayce T. recipes by ingredient, "[...]But still, my complaint: this article is too similar to the one by ingredient." I couldn't put my finger on why I don't like it. Thanks for clarifying it five years later. Mario Green.pngKaBoom! 17:16, 12 February 2015 (EST)

@Vommack: You have to add a reason to your vote or it will get deleted. BabyLuigiFire.png Ray Trace(T|C) 17:17, 12 February 2015 (EST)

Speaking of, and by the same way, why does this very page exist? It seems redundant, it's role can be filled by separate list of -chef- recipes.. Hmmmm--

@LudwigVon: Could you elaborate on why you find these pages simpler to navigate in comparison to the others? Hello, I'm Time Turner.

I do not like the fact of changing all this to confuse some people , the list of recipes are much more simple to navigate (you have less research to do) instead to go to lots of different pages for looking for a recipe in particular.--LudwigVon (talk) 18:10, 14 February 2015 (EST)
Currently, there are two sets of pages based on the recipes. There's one (Tayce T, Zess T, Saffron and Dyllis) that's organized by the recipes, and there's another (Tayce T, Zess T, Saffron and Dyllis) that's organized by the ingredients. The second set, the one that's based on the ingredients, is the one that's being proposed for deletion, since it's redundant and pointless due to the other set of recipe pages. Deleting the second set will not result in all of the recipes being deleted. Hello, I'm Time Turner.
Oops! The title of Proposal took me to confusion. Is it possible to change my vote ?--LudwigVon (talk) 18:29, 14 February 2015 (EST)
You can change your vote whenever you want. Hello, I'm Time Turner.

Delete this page. (while keeping the standalone List of 'chef' recipes)[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.

keep 3-5

Okay hear me, this page is a mess. Putting all the recipes from all the different games in one page is messy, The Standalone lists are far more organized, and more updated. Besides, very few recipes are actually shared by multiple chefs. It's redundant and useless. Even some items are named differently per name, having them separated is the best.

  1. Megadardery (talk) This page is an extra, it doesn't provide any additional information; they are all in their respective pages. So why do we have to leave it?
  2. Burningdragon25 (talk) I agree with that! Must go!
  3. Binarystep (talk) It's a confusing mess. Delete with extreme prejudice.


  1. Andymii (talk) Per Mario in the comments. I agree that the page is in bad shape, but that simply means that the page should be fixed, not deleted. Plus, it's convenient to have everything posted on a single page.
  2. Lord Grammaticus (talk) ...yeah, why not just rewrite it?
  3. LudwigVon (talk) Per all. The article just need to be rewrite. Delete this is not necessary.
  4. Tails777 (talk) Yeah per Mario's comment. This is kinda more like the various List of [insert subject here]. Per all on just rewriting it too.
  5. Stonehill (talk) When you stumble upon a messy page, YOU CAN'T JUST OUTRIGHT DELETE IT! You have to rewrite it first! (That's why {{rewrite}} was made in the first place!) If you can't get it right only then do you tag the page for deletion.


I don't know, but if this page is just redundant because the other games cover them, why do we have List of characters, List of items, and List of places? Wouldn't they be technically redundant and useless too? And they're formatted similarly, except it doesn't have price-listings? But anyway, I don't see the need to delete a generic list; I don't think it's redundant because it can be a repository of all recipes that appeared, but maybe I'm wrong. Mario Green.pngKaBoom! 19:43, 28 March 2015 (EDT)

I think the concept behind the page was good, but in its current form, it's a mess. I'm only voting to delete it because there isn't a "Rewrite" section. Binarystep (talk) 21:33, 28 March 2015 (EDT)
List of characters and the rest are far more different lists. They are all generic lists that covers basically, all games. For example, the first supplies the need to show you and let you search for any character you want and the game they first appeared in. This is not a list, I guess this was an attempt to merge all the recipes items into one page, which as mentioned before, is a mess of repeated info. Generally, I'm proposing deleting this page as a 'merge of 3 separate pages'. If you have any ideas of how this page could be (like propose an overhaul), fire ahead. --

List of recipes cover all games in the series. I can argue that the same argument applies to my claim. The problem is, I view this as a list of all recipes in the Paper Mario series rather you viewing it as an attempt to merge all recipes into one page. Slightly different views, drastic opinions on things. Mario Green.pngKaBoom! 04:26, 9 April 2015 (EDT)

@Andymii: Also, I don't see how "convenient" it is to have them all as one page, it's a clutter. Very very few recipes are actually shared by multiple chefs. By the way, I plan on making a dismbig page at List of recipes to link to all the separated links. This could be convenient.--

15:29, 29 March 2015 (EDT)

Your proposed article feels like this page except with merely links to the articles. I don't see how this would be convenient since it doesn't provide the at-a-glance aspect like this one does. But maybe I'm BSing here. Mario Green.pngKaBoom! 04:28, 9 April 2015 (EDT)

Also, I'm proposing to delete this page. Because it is an unnecessary merge that doesn't prove any much more information. Unlinke other list of stuffz, which includes a simplified generic list of stuffz from all the games. The recipes are only exclusive to the Paper Mario series. And the they aren't shared by different games as much as the stuffz in the other lists (list of items, for example).

But this is technically a list of stuffz from all the games in the series. It's a slightly more specific generic list (oxymoron lol), but it's a generic list nevertheless. Maybe we can change the formatting to make it more readable, I don't know. I think this could serve as a convenient navigational article for those interested in seeing how many recipes the Paper Mario series has as a whole, but deleting it? I'm a bit iffy on that. Mario Green.pngKaBoom! 04:26, 9 April 2015 (EDT)

I would support this page to exist if the separate 'List of chef recipes' pages didn't exists.--
