Talk:Slurp Guy

From the Super Mario Wiki, the Mario encyclopedia

Biology[edit]

The rules of biology of the Mushroom World must be written either in crayon or on a Magnadoodle if simply sticking a straw in its mouth is enough to make it a new species. Then again, I'm probably taking this more seriously than I need to. 9:12 AM 7/25/2019 (EST) MarioLover54

"Species" isn't really all that defined in the the context of wiki organization. We treat this as separate from Shy Guy not from a biology standpoint but from more of a gameplay + appearance sort of thing. Just as how Beach Koopa is its own "species".

This is why I use "variant" whenever I try to make new wikis for similar franchises. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 15:03, July 25, 2019 (EDT)

Paper Mario: The Origami King?[edit]

In Paper Mario: The Origami King, there is one Shy Guy that appears drinking with a straw, and the articles have called it "Slurp Guy" just because of the straw. The name "Slurp Guy" does not appear anywhere in this game, so I really don't think we should use that name for it and keep all mentions of the name "Slurp Guy" restricted to Paper Mario: Color Splash, including on the Slurp Guy article itself. Does anyone else think so? Master of Masters KHXBC.png Keyblade Master

It's definitely meant as a callback to Color Splash, so I think we should at least mention it in the article, though maybe without calling it a Slurp Guy outright. Niiue - Who has lost his tail? 08:12, August 22, 2020 (EDT)
