Talk:Space Troopa

From the Super Mario Wiki, the Mario encyclopedia

What is this page for, exactly? So far it covers:

  • An implied species that never explicitly shows up on-screen
  • Astronaut Koopas that may be Space Troopas
  • Astronaut Koopas from Mario's Time Machine that almost certainly aren't Space Troopas

Am I missing something here? Niiue (talk) 07:13, 6 August 2017 (EDT)

They're all Troopas. They're all Spacemen. Spacemen Troopas. Space Troopas. Technically the ones in MTM would be Space Troopas, as they are space-themed Troopas. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 18:55, 6 August 2017 (CT)
I don't like the idea of giving an article to Koopa Troopas solely because they happen to be wearing a different costume, let alone the idea of grouping Koopas together because they happen to look similar. In Mario's Time Machine, at the very least, there is nothing that distinguishes the "space" Koopas from the regular Koopa Troopas besides the outfit change, and that could easily be covered on Koopa Troopa.

I don't see why the Mario's Time Machine ones can't have their own page, at least. Niiue (talk) 01:38, 8 August 2017 (EDT)
There's a precedent for merging elements that are literally nothing but palette swaps. Hello, I'm Time Turner. 17:03, 8 August 2017 (EDT)
Technically these are tile swaps, the palette is the same. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 16:04, 8 August 2017 (CT)
Fair enough, but you know what I meant. Hello, I'm Time Turner. 17:07, 8 August 2017 (EDT)
