From the Super Mario Wiki

This page should be combined with crab page, minus the Donkey kong crabs as they have no apparent connection. The fact that Japanese sidesteppers use the generic name crab seems Nintendo meant for them to be the same species.
The preceding unsigned comment was added by Nesdustin (talk).

No it shouldn't. They are officially named Sidesteppers in North America unlike a lot of the other crab species, so it gets so be separated. Hello, I'm Time Turner.
Even though the Brawl trophy implies that in English, they aren't just called crabs, but literally "Mr. Crab" in Japan. Whether all "Crabs" referred to as such in English are separate from the Sidesteppers or not in Japan is another story, but definitely not all Crabs are Sidesteppers and therefore the pages shouldn't be merged. --Grandy02 12:01, 10 January 2010 (EST)

Add game appearances table[edit]

Those seem to mostly be being phased out. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 15:35, 1 September 2018 (EDT)
How, Doc? --DyeffersonAzSignature.png (talk) 19:14, 1 September 2018 (EDT)
Why? They're useful for listing chronological appearances, something our history sections don't do. Mario Green.pngKaBoom! 19:22, 1 September 2018 (EDT)

I'm just reporting what I see. I seem to recall them being all over once upon a time, but now there's only a few. I think they're useful, myself. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 19:33, 1 September 2018 (EDT)
Oh, so that's just a case of "the wiki is always incomplete". I think calling it "phased out" is inaccurate, more like "not a lot of edits adding these", but that makes sense because they take effort. So anyway, the game appearances table should be added.

I suppose I had just never asked. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 19:36, 1 September 2018 (EDT)
I use it so much to know the track of THAT character specifically. I'll work on this character appearances table based on the history information. --DyeffersonAzSignature.png (talk) 19:40, 1 September 2018 (EDT)

All right. Try italicizing the game titles. Think like book titles. I also don't think the italics are needed on "cameo", so remove those, and capitalize. Also, remove the period in the Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga part, and remove the bold on Mario Kart 8 (keep that italics, and I don't think it needs a link). I'd also remove the sentence at the beginning; the table by itself doesn't need further description. And there, the table should be done. See, wasn't so hard, right?
