Talk:Red Bones

From the Super Mario Wiki, the Mario encyclopedia

That "Red Skeleton Koopa" name was likely the Japanese name. Because I have the German version, and they are called like that in the translation. Dull Bones are known as Skeleton Koopas and Red Bones as Red Skeleton Koopa. - Cobold (talk · contribs) 12:17, 3 September 2007 (EDT)

Oh, OK. You can add that in if you want... But, as it turns out, I got the name wrong. As I watch the trailer again, it really referred to Red Bones as "Red Koopa Skeleton," not "Red Skeleton Koopa." Would the whole Japanese name thing still work? YELLOWYOSHI398
Considering that they turned round the name of Dry Bones in German, too, making them Bone-dry, a similar thing could have happened here. - Cobold (talk · contribs) 12:22, 3 September 2007 (EDT)


Not an One-time enemy![edit]

I Noticed that you can find Red Bones's tattle in Professor Frankly's garbage altough it isn't an One-time enemy. Shall i add it to the trivia? User:MarioMaster720

Red Skeleton[edit]

First, i have to apologize for my bad english, it's not my first language.

Red Bones have many similarities with the enemy Red Skeleton from the Castlevania games. Both are described as "Bloody Skeletons", and both can reassemble themselves. To be fair, every member of the Dry family can, sans Dull Bones, but it should be noted that Red Skeletons are the only kind that can do this in Castlevania. Perhaps this should be mentioned in the Trivia section?

Your English is not bad; I've seen English speakers with even worse grammar than yours, so consider this a compliment. :)
This can be considered a reference, but it would be nice if we got a picture of them because this whole "reanimating corpses" is most likely a video game trope as well.

Really, thank you! ^^ Well, here it is, albeit there's not much information: castlevania.wikia.com/wiki/Red_Skeleton (Just add http:// before the adress, for some reason i can't post external links...) I don't know, but i've never heard any other instance about a Bloody Skeleton in video games or similar tropes. Hence why i think Red Bones could be a reference. --108Specter (talk) 18:43, 24 November 2013 (EST)
