Paper Mario[edit]

I'm never played RPG, but I have played Partners in Time, so... I don't think that Shooting Star Summit and Star Hill are one and the same. The Summet is much smaller and contains no Star door blocking any not of pure hearts. -Stumpers

Agreed. The article should be seperated into two different articles. -- User: Son of Suns

Bit of an issue... when you search for Shooting Star Summit, it redirects you here, so... how do you make a separate artitcle for it?-Stumpers

Should the {{split}} template be placed on the article? - Yoshi626MKDD Yoshi Egg.png 15:46, 18 December 2006 (EST)
Yeah, as most players probably think of them as the same place. 3dhammer.gif 3D, {{{1}}} 3dhammer.gif
Should it be placed like this? {{split|Shooting Star Summit|Star Hill}} - Yoshi626MKDD Yoshi Egg.png 16:03, 18 December 2006 (EST)

Maybe shooting star summit is on star hill. -Pal101

Proof? --KPH2293 02:49, 19 April 2007 (EDT)

They both link to star road (or something that looks like it. Both are are nearby places where wishes are granted. Its always nightime in both places, and both the ground is purple.-PAl101
The preceding unsigned comment was added by Pal101 (talk).

Shooting Star Summit links to Star Way, not Star Road. --KPH2293 21:43, 21 April 2007 (EDT)

They look identicle though-Pal101

Do you have a source that says that they are the same place? --KPH2293 21:52, 21 April 2007 (EDT)

No but we don't have a source that says Goombossis the Goomba king either.-Pal101

Unless there is a source saying that Star Hill and Shooting Star Summit are the same place, the articles are staying separate. --KPH2293 21:59, 21 April 2007 (EDT)


Pretty smart you are. But that isn't right. The places are named differently and we just don't know.

The names are the same in jappanese, it was changed to Shooting star summit when it came out in english. user:Peachycakes 3.14

Yes, they have the same name in Japanese. Factor in that Shooting Star Summit and Star Hill are located in the same general area in Paper Mario and Partners in Time, and this whole mix-up was one of those freak NoA mistakes. LinkTheLefty 15:25, 12 November 2008 (EST)

Split Star Hill (Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time) from Star Hill[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.


This article implies that the M&L:PiT one is different then the other 2. The one in the PiT one doesn't involve any wishes or anything. They have different Japanese names and etc.

  1. KS3 (talk) Per proposal, and the fact that we merged Goby, Yo'ster Isle, Pale Piranha, etc. (Note that if you click on the links, they redirects to their respective articles), and that we split Piranha Plant (Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door).
  2. Bloc Partier (talk) - Different Japanese names means different places. Or at least that's the standard we've set...
  3. Gamefreak75 (talk) I guess...per all.
Don't Split
  1. Turkishcoffee (talk) If we're merging Shooting Star Summit, we might as well keep this in.

Going with the Japanese continuity, there are two Star Hills: the Shooting Star Hill (Failing Star Hill) (mis-translated to Star Hill then Shooting Star Summit) that is linked to wishes and is dark blue, and the Star Hill that is linked to the Star Shrine and is light blue. We should maybe split Star Hill (Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time) and Star Hill, then fuse Star Hill and Shooting Star Summit ? I don't know, so I'm not voting (yet).

As you can see above this proposal did actually passed but was labeled a No QUORUM however, this proposal is well over a year old and the person who proposed this is currently blocked and this proposal is well over a year old my question is do we accept this proposal and split the articles or do we have another TPP about it Goomba's Shoe15 (talk)

I changed the label to "Passed". Unless anyone objects, the pages should be split. - Walkazo 20:28, 7 June 2011 (EDT)

King's Quest 7[edit]

The music for Shooting Star Summit sounds like the desert music from KQ7. PoisonMushroom 14:15, 16 September 2011 (EDT)

Wait, why the split?[edit]

This is probably very old news, but I don't understand this split... From what I understand, it's because the Japanese name is different from its first two appearances and that there's no demonstration that it has anything to do with wishes, but the names basically translate to the same thing ([Falling] Star Hill), and it's in the exact same location as its Paper Mario counterpart (granted, geography was never consistent in Mario games, but certain ideas like Yoshi's Island being somewhere southwest of the Mushroom Kingdom have more or less been constant). If the Star Hills are going to be split because the Japanese names are slightly different, why not also, for example, go through every instance of Yo'ster Isle and Yoshi's Island in the Japanese games, and split that article up as well? Just like Star Hill, Yoshi's Island also changes appearance every game in appears in, so it'd pretty much be the same thing... LinkTheLefty (talk) 22:55, 28 April 2014 (EDT)

I agree it's silly. You can make a TPP on this matter. --Glowsquid (talk) 23:10, 28 April 2014 (EDT)

Remerge with Star Hill (Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time)[edit]

merge 4-0

Based on the above section. The old proposal ended up splitting Star Hill on the basis of the Japanese names, but that is often not the final authority on this Wiki (we still have, for example, Chancellor and Toad Minister, Para-Beetle and Parabuzzy, and even Boo Guy to name a few). The fact is that even if the name is written differently, it still an essentially identical translation ([Falling] Star Hill), the game series even in Japan already often uses many different names interchangeably for the same concepts like the Koopa Troop, and any perceived significant differences in terrain or function with its Paper Mario counterpart (which is in the exact spot) can be chalked up to time traveling to its past incarnation.
