Should This Be Merged with Toadies?
The preceding unsigned comment was added by Count Caterpie (talk).

Actually, thats a good idea. Can an op mergificate them?GreenKoopa - Comments or questions?

Seeing as they behave and look differently, they're probably a different species. And while the article could use some expanding upon, I don't think it should be merged. But, for future reference, normal Users can merge articles: just move the information and then turn the old page into a redirect. If there's not too many pages linking to the redirect, try orphaning it, and then labeling it for a deletion. - Walkazo 20:28, 1 September 2008 (EDT)
No, Walkazo. You're never suppoed to intentionally orphan a page. :\ Marcelagus (TCE) It's... against common sense...
Unless you're DELETING the page. Doing it before the page is deleted just saves the Sysops the trouble of doing away with the red links themselves. - Walkazo 21:27, 1 September 2008 (EDT)
Whoever said we're deleting it? Nice of your consideration to admins, but I really think it to be unnecessary. Marcelagus (TCE)

We're not deleting this page, I said "for future reference", since GreenKoopa seemed to think merging articles was an op-only job. - Walkazo 21:38, 1 September 2008 (EDT)

Separate or same Toadies[edit]

I think that Green Toady and Solo Toady are different species. Yes, i know that Nep-Enut and what called Submarine Nep-Enut is actually a Nep-Enut, and Balloon Boo and Blue Boo which is actually Balloon Boo considered as different species, but these Toadies appear to have a different color. Green Toady, as it name implies, it is green. It has a pale yellow skin and blue shoes. Solo Toady is magenta with purple skin and pink shoes. Should we consider them as separate enemies? --83.156.220.80 03:39, 27 June 2018 (EDT)

There's a reason the "split" template is on the page, because of the color difference as well as the behavioral. And the "Submarine Nep-Enut" actually was in reference to a particular underground Nep-Enut that could not be reached while it was shrunk down due to there being no gapes to get to the surface of the water, hence the reason the guide referred to that one as cowardly. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 03:43, 27 June 2018 (EDT)
I was also talking about Balloon Boo and Blue Boo though. --83.156.220.80 03:45, 27 June 2018 (EDT)
That one did seem to be a fudging on the guide's part, and as such was irrelevant to what I was saying. To be fair, the string isn't visible in the castle area, though the nozzle is, but without context that might be a little hard for some to interpret. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 03:50, 27 June 2018 (EDT)
My bad, it's Boo Balloon. Balloon Boo is from New Super Mario Bros. --83.156.220.80 03:53, 27 June 2018 (EDT)
I'm in support for splitting the pages. The current article could use with splitting. The HD Guy (talk) 08:09, 30 August 2018 (EDT)
Hmm... The color and behavioral difference reminds me largely of Koopa Troopas, but LinkTheLefty translated the Advance 3 guidebook entry for me, and it only mentions the Green Toadies (with the sprite too). I'm starting a proposal.

Yoshi's New Island[edit]

Are you sure they appeared in Yoshi's New Island? I didn't saw magenta Toadies with purple skin and pink shoes and/or Green Toadies with pale yellow skin and blue shoes. I only saw yellow skinned Toadies with either red wearing or purple wearing. Do you mean that the Toadies who wear purple are the Solo Toady? --83.156.220.80 04:06, 5 July 2018 (EDT)

Presumably. Were they alone? Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 04:25, 5 July 2018 (EDT)

I didn't watch a whole playthrough you know. --83.156.220.80 04:28, 5 July 2018 (EDT) I would like to propose that a nice separate model rip of this Bowser minion. https://www.models-resource.com/3ds/yoshisnewisland/model/13348/ The Solo Toady must be separated from the regular one. And yes, in response to your above questions, they are alone. --Hamshamcart (talk) 16:39, 21 September 2018 (EDT)

Split Green Toadies from Solo Toadies[edit]

don't split 1-7
Proposer: FanOfYoshi (talk)
Deadline: November, 23, 2018 23:59 GMT

They are two different species in which the parent species is Toady. 1st, the Advance 3 Guide only mentions the Green Toady. 2nd, the Japanese names don't always make them the same thing. Take exemple on Bukubuku and Blurp. Bukubuku is the Japanese name of a green fish wearing goggles, and that of a shark-like fish.

Support[edit]

  1. FanOfYoshi (talk) Per proposal.

Oppose[edit]

  1. Waluigi Time (talk) The only difference between these is that the pink ones appear out of nowhere, while green ones are already in the level. Not different enough to split, if you ask me.
  2. WeirdDave13 (talk) Per Waluigi Time.
  3. Niiue (talk) Per all.
  4. LinkTheLefty (talk) In retrospect, Green Toady is a color variation of the pink Toady, which we generally don't split. If anything, Solo Toady can be merged with Toady for consistency.
  5. TheFlameChomp (talk) Per all.
  6. Bazooka Mario (talk) Merge to Toady.
  7. bwburke94 (talk) Per all. No reason to split.

Comments[edit]

For future reference, LinkTheLefty added the split template, not Doc von Schmeltwick. --Toasty.jpg FanOfYoshi NSMB - Splunkin Model.png 13:43, 9 November 2018 (EST)

Yeah, I added so many I got confused about which ones were actually mine. Anyways, while they do seem to be different in English, it can be argued that this is more akin to "Seedy Sally," with having the same Japanese names; even Bouncing Bullet Bill got a rename in Japan for YNI. I think that's grounds for some continued discussion, as these are somewhat similar to a red-green Troopa situation, but with three examples. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 15:56, 9 November 2018 (EST)
Seedy Sallies and Short Fuse didn't differ physically from Grinders and Ukikis. --Toasty.jpg FanOfYoshi NSMB - Splunkin Model.png 03:04, 10 November 2018 (EST)
Red-Green Troopa? It might not be a bad idea to merge these with the regular Toady page due to shared JP names and being recolor behavior differences, if you look at it from that angle....not advocating that, just noting it. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 03:28, 10 November 2018 (EST)
As far as i remember, a Japanese source had normal Toadies with a different Japanese name. "Kamek no Teshita". --Toasty.jpg FanOfYoshi NSMB - Splunkin Model.png 03:41, 10 November 2018 (EST)
I don't see it that much as Koopa Troopa. --Toasty.jpg FanOfYoshi NSMB - Splunkin Model.png 04:09, 10 November 2018 (EST)
Also your Bukubuku example doesn't check out, given these are from the same game. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 13:30, 10 November 2018 (EST)

Admittedly, Green Toady is more AGGRESSIVE in its attempts to bring back Snufit Ball steal the baby, and we have Bandit and Coin Bandit split. I don't think we should have Green Toady not getting a distinct Japanese name be basis for keeping them together, when they originally all shared the same name as regular Toady, and Green Toady simply hasn't reappeared since they were all considered the same sort of thing in Japan. Similar to how, also in Japan, Bullet Bill, Bouncing Bullet Bill, and Missile/Bull's-Eye Bill were all considered the same thing as each other, but aren't anymore, and the only "Boo Buddy" types from SMW to have distinct names in Japan even now are the Circlin' Boo Buddies and Block Boos. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 19:48, 10 November 2018 (EST)

Then how you explain Spiked Fun Guys and Needlenoses have the same Japanese name that the normal Pokey do? --Toasty.jpg FanOfYoshi NSMB - Splunkin Model.png 03:55, 12 November 2018 (EST)
Those are clearly different iterations of the normal Pokey, which they didn't bother to distinguish. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 05:14, 12 November 2018 (EST)
And Flutters and normal Wigglers? They clearly have the same Japanese names, but are different in appearance, and slight behavior change. --Toasty.jpg FanOfYoshi NSMB - Splunkin Model.png 03:59, 13 November 2018 (EST)
@Link, a few source called normal ones in Japanese (i romanize) Kamek no Teshita, and were not only called "Kokameck". This is similar to Potted Spiked Fun Guy in which had a different Japanese name from normal Spiked Fun Guys.--Toasty.jpg FanOfYoshi NSMB - Splunkin Model.png 07:08, 13 November 2018 (EST)
I'm pretty sure Flutters should have been called "Pata Hanachan" in Japanese. --Toasty.jpg FanOfYoshi NSMB - Splunkin Model.png 10:27, 13 November 2018 (EST)
The original Shogakukan guide gives their name as Kokamek while describing them as Kamek no Teshita, which tells me that the terms are basically interchangeable. Also, it should be noted that Wiggler and Flutter did not originally appear together, so they did not need to have separate names. LinkTheLefty (talk) 11:00, 13 November 2018 (EST)
The Advance guide treats both as separate, and the name "Kamek no Teshita" isn't the description, but added itself as the main name. --Toasty.jpg FanOfYoshi NSMB - Splunkin Model.png 11:06, 13 November 2018 (EST)
What that shows is that both versions of the book are contradicting sources, similar to whether Puchipuchi L refers to the extra-large enemy in the Marching Milde boss battle or simply the semi-common big version of Milde (which we amalgamate as either size). LinkTheLefty (talk) 11:21, 13 November 2018 (EST)

"Kamek no Teshita" seems to specifically refer to the quartet of Toadies that Kamek sends out at the beginning and appear whenever the countdown ends. If anything, "Kamek's Toadies" should be split from the regular Toady article as a specific group, and not be seen as a "species," per se, similar to how the seemingly-more-individual-than-the-bosses Tap-Tap the Golden is still a generic enemy listed there. Or do something like we have for the Draggadon page.... Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 12:49, 16 November 2018 (EST)

I'll also point out that in the original, these aren't technically recolors of regular Toady, as they have prominent shoes and seem to be missing a few parts of the graphics. These missing parts were added in SMA3 it seems, but the shoes remain distinctive. Observe:


Now unfortunately we don't have an SMA3 generic Toady sprite, but they looked like the originals with desaturated colors. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 14:04, 16 November 2018 (EST)

This seems clunky since the Yoshi's New Island guidebook only mentions the Solo Toady (the purple cloaked one in YNI are indeed Solo Toadies hence their behavior) --Toasty.jpg FanOfYoshi NSMB - Splunkin Model.png 06:51, 17 November 2018 (EST)

I'd agree with splitting Kamek's Toadies from Toady and merging Solo Toady with the main article. LinkTheLefty (talk) 15:29, 17 November 2018 (EST)

Are we allowed to restart a proposal that failed? Results May Vary said that he supported a split above. They're different enough to be split. --Toasty.jpg FanOfYoshi NSMB - Splunkin Model.png 13:33, 23 November 2018 (EST)
In four weeks. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 14:11, 23 November 2018 (EST)
Four weeks if there isn't already a proposal occuring. Should i change the reason of the proposal after restarting one? Or should i let Results May Vary do it? He may know a bit more about it. --Toasty.jpg FanOfYoshi NSMB - Splunkin Model.png 14:15, 23 November 2018 (EST)
Doesn't really matter. Anyways, the only reason I'd see to split is that technically, the name "Solo Toady" doesn't seem to have ever been officially applied to the green one specifically. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 14:20, 23 November 2018 (EST)
I see what you mean. Yeah, even though they both have prominent shoes, the Green Toadies have never been officially applied to Solo Toady. I'd add that in the next proposal. --Toasty.jpg FanOfYoshi NSMB - Splunkin Model.png 14:24, 23 November 2018 (EST)
If they aren't both merged with Toady by then. I can see either way, particularly as in the games after SMA3, They appear to fully be recolors of regular Toady. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 14:28, 23 November 2018 (EST)
Hope so. As you mentioned, they aren't just recolored sprites, because they have shoes. Normal Toadies are barefeet. Hope the page doesn't get merged at this point. --Toasty.jpg FanOfYoshi NSMB - Splunkin Model.png 14:33, 23 November 2018 (EST)
They're barefoot nowadays, though. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 15:08, 23 November 2018 (EST)

Split Green Toady from Solo Toady: Attempt 2[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.

canceled by proposer
Ok, this is getting a bit more intensive than the first one. While the Koopa Troopa gets only one entry in the Advance Guide, Toadies have two. one for normal Toady, and one for Green Toady, but not Solo Toady. Solo Toady is neither referred in the Green Toady's, nor getting an entry. Since i'm not a fan of how they we're handled in Super Famicon guides, i think it's better to trust the Advance 3 Guide. Doc von Schmeltwick sees a reason to split. In this guide, Kokameck refers to Green Toady. According to Doc von Schmeltwick, Green Toady not ever officially applied to Solo Toady.

Comments[edit]

At the same time, I see that guide as potentially referring to the quartet in the "normal" entry and not the species. I can go either way, really, as it's not as clear-cut as other color things. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 02:20, 10 January 2019 (EST)

In the previous proposal, you said that the only reason you see to split is that both have never been officially applied to each other. --Toasty.jpg FanOfYoshi NSMB - Splunkin Model.png 02:28, 10 January 2019 (EST)
Something that merging both to Toady would also solve. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 02:32, 10 January 2019 (EST)
In this guide, Kokameck refers to Green Toady. And as i said, Solo Toady hasn't been applied to it. I do disgress that the Super Famicon guides doesn't do the same thing, but since it's a remake, i think that they decided to call Green Toady "Kokameck". As i said, the only reason you'd see to split is that the name "Solo Toady" wasn't ever officially applied to Green Toady. I don't think it was ever officially applied to Green Toady. --Toasty.jpg FanOfYoshi NSMB - Splunkin Model.png 02:35, 10 January 2019 (EST)
Anyways, it's your choice. --Toasty.jpg FanOfYoshi NSMB - Splunkin Model.png 02:49, 10 January 2019 (EST)
"Kokameck" refers to generic Toadies in JP. Which umbrellas all three colors. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 03:11, 10 January 2019 (EST)
I kinda oppose the merge, and also, i disagree to split Kamek's Toadies. --Toasty.jpg FanOfYoshi NSMB - Splunkin Model.png 11:15, 10 January 2019 (EST)
