Talk:Shadow (species)

From the Super Mario Wiki, the Mario encyclopedia

Aren't they demons of some kind? I vaguely remember Frankly or Goombella referring to the Shadow Queen as an ancient Demon Goomb-omb 00:45, 24 June 2009 (EDT)

-Actually, yes. You're right. The Shadow Queen HAS been referred to as a demon many times in the game, so it's possible that the Shadow Sirens were, too.

It's probably like when somebody calls something a monster: they mean it's a diabolical, cruel, living creature. Hello, I'm Time Turner.

This is an entirely speculative species that provides nothing of note. There is no information in this article that is not made entirely redundant and ultimately pointless by the existence of other articles, including Shadow Sirens and Shadow Queen. There are plenty and plenty and plenty and plenty of individuals that do not have articles about their hypothetical species, and we shouldn't have them in the first place, especially if we have nothing new to say (and no, restating the obvious and wild speculation does not count). This is to say nothing of the precedent set by the deletion of Piranha Bud, Puff, Goom, Stu, and others. To put it simply, there is no merit to this article; therefore, I want to delete it.

Comments[edit]

@Doc: I took "Shadow Sirens" to be the name of Beldam's group and not the name of their species (and indeed, the wiki classifies it as a group). Hello, I'm Time Turner. 17:27, 26 September 2017 (EDT)

What "species" are they then if this article is deleted? --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 16:12, 7 October 2017 (EDT)
I make a point in the proposal about how not literally every individual needs to have a clear-cut, defined species, especially when it is born of nothing but speculation. Hello, I'm Time Turner. 16:15, 7 October 2017 (EDT)
