Talk:Starfish

This is a good article, but since it's practically confirmed that they're the same person/star/starfish/whatever, shouldn't it be merged with Stafy? It's probably ambiguous enough for them to stay at separate articles, but I'm just throwing the idea out. YELLOWYOSHI398

failed don't merge 4-9

Since it's been confirmed that Starfish is Starfy and it's even mentioned on Starfy, I think this should be merged with Starfy.

Support[edit]

  1. Not Bugsy (talk) Per my reasons above.
  2. Zero777 (talk) I am Zero! Per proposal. Zero signing out.
  3. Booderdash (talk) Second sentence: Starfish is actually Starfy making a cameo in the game -_-
  4. 1337doom (talk) Any cameo could be considered "non-comfirmed". There's a page for Samus Aran but not a page for "Power-Suited Person In SMRPG".

Oppose[edit]

  1. Fuzzipede27 (talk) A starfish is an enemy in SPP, Starfy is a hero.
  2. Reversinator (talk) I know what the article says, but do we have any proof of it?
  3. MrConcreteDonkey (talk) Per Reversinator. That's probably just fanon and speculation.
  4. BabyLuigiOnFire (talk) Per Fuzzipede.
  5. Fawfulfury65 (talk) Per myself in the comments.
  6. Mr bones (talk) Maybe it resembles Starfy, but it's not confirmed! So per all!
  7. Bowser's luma (talk) As a Starfy player myself, Starfy and Starfish are not the same thing. Per all.
  8. Superboo922 (talk) Per Fuzzipede, MCD, Fawfulfury... Well pretty much per all.
  9. Walkazo (talk) - Per all.

Comments[edit]

@Booderdash: Just because it says it in the article doesn't mean it is true. Fawfulfury65 (talk)

Reversinator and pers: It says in a log: "a star-shaped foe rumored to be the prince of a kingdom?", so that's proof and not speculation BabyLuigiFire.png Ray Trace(T|C)
Starfy isn't the only character who can be a "star-shaped foe rumored to be prince of the kingdom". They may be talking about another character. Fawfulfury65 (talk)
Maybe, but then again, it looks like they have someone (Starfy) in mind when they mentioned that. BabyLuigiFire.png Ray Trace(T|C)
@Fawfulfury65 What are the chances of that? PeteyPiranhafliying.gifGalacticPeteyPeteyPiranhafliying.gif
It doesn't matter if it's likely that it is Starfy, you can't be completely sure. Unless it says that this enemy is in fact Starfy, it is pretty much speculation. Fawfulfury65 (talk)

What we need is a source to prove that they're the same, then we can merge them. 22360415-149x149-0-0 ++The+SpongeBob+SquarePants+Movie.jpg Boo der dash 180px-MaskedDedede.png

Go here. You should find some reliable sources eventually. here 22360415-149x149-0-0 ++The+SpongeBob+SquarePants+Movie.jpg Boo der dash 180px-MaskedDedede.png

canceled by proposer
In addition to the in-game description strongly implying that shades-wearing Starfish is clearly Starfy, the Starfish's sprites from Super Princess Peach are obviously a direct edit of Starfy's from Densetsu no Stafy 4 down to the same exaggerated running cycle and manner of sleeping. On top of that, the internal data for the Starfish as a stage enemy is named "p_stafy_00_ncg" & "p_stafy_00_ncl" in Super Princess Peach.

It just so happens that Starfy was merged with Assist Trophy last week, and since there likely won't be any reason to give Starfy his own article anytime soon, the proposal is cancelled. LinkTheLefty (talk) 21:40, 3 November 2018 (EDT)
