PEGI rating[edit]

PEGI 7 rating is confirmed in this game, I saw this in Nintendo eShop page. --PetrPro (talk) 11:56, June 21, 2023 (EDT)

Blue Toad[edit]

The article says that Blue Toad is playable. While the Goomba on the key art might be wearing a mushroom cap resembling Blue Toad's, I think that's not concrete proof that he is indeed playable. -Definitely not Sascha (talk)

Seems good enough to me, considering the trailer confirmed at least 4 colors of Yoshi at once. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 14:12, June 21, 2023 (EDT)
I agree. --An unused sprite of Vivian in Super Paper Mario. FanOfYoshiArtwork of Rainbow Mario from Super Mario Galaxy. 14:17, June 21, 2023 (EDT)
Just seems strange to me that they go out of their way to show all the Yoshis, but Blue Toad not once. -Definitely not Sascha (talk)
I'd rather avoid the speculation. A Blue Toad cap being in artwork could mean just about anything this early on, so for now we should avoid saying that he's definitely playable, or even in the game - for all we know there could just be a Goomba that wears the cap for some reason. --Waluigi's head icon in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. Too Bad! Waluigi Time! 15:16, June 21, 2023 (EDT)
I went ahead and removed it, and it should not be readded until we know for sure what the deal is with that Goomba. Bowser Nightwicked Bowser Bowser emblem from Mario Kart 8 17:02, June 21, 2023 (EDT)
Mary's Response: Thanks for this info. I shall now respond!
Hmmm... I think I may have a theory here, based on this infamous "Goomba With Blue Toad's Cap" topic. And that theory is: The game could POSSIBLY have ANOTHER new powerup, where you can MORPH INTO A GOOMBA!?!?
Just think! in the key artwork, the goomba has Blue Toad's cap, right? AND we know that this game will have new powerups, like the Elephant Fruit (That's what I'm gonna call it, anyway). So maybe, there will be a new Goomba-Morph powerup, similar to the Goomba Mask in Super Mario 3D World! It makes sense, don't you think?
We'll just have to wait and see what happens in the game, we're not including anything based on fan theories. Bowser Nightwicked Bowser Bowser emblem from Mario Kart 8 19:14, June 25, 2023 (EDT)
I do agree we should probably wait, but seeing as the spike ball and stretchy forms appear as wonder effects, it's likely the Goomba will as well. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 22:12, June 25, 2023 (EDT)

Well, it looks like Nintendo has cleared the situation up during today's game focused-Direct. Yes, Blue Toad is playable, and yes, you can turn into a Goomba during gameplay. DK Fan

The Flower Kingdom[edit]

According to the world map footage of Luigi, the first two levels are "Welcome to the Flower Kingdom!" and "Piranha Plants on Parade". I was wondering if we should start compiling a "Locations" section to describe parts of levels seen in trailer footage, known levels, and world map areas. I'm also wondering where we could mention that this game will be taking place in the Flower Kingdom. MarioComix (talk) 06:08, June 22, 2023 (EDT)

Missing form[edit]

Just wanted to say that in the part of the trailer where they are falling throught the clouds you can see they are under the effects of the Super Star, I can't edit so please someone add both the Super Star and the Invincible form.
The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk).


Can you please add "Checkpoint Flag" to the items list? I saw some in the trailer. Can you please add "Checkpoint Flag"? Please. 20:45, June 22, 2023 (EDT)

Daisy's artwork: Similar or different pose artwork?[edit]

I notice that Daisy's artwork that it seems to be familiar. It looks like Daisy's pose from London Tour's launch artwork, if we compare to Daisy's artwork in this game and the launch artwork for London Tour, the pose feels slightly different. So here is the comparison:

Should we consider Daisy's pose in Super Mario Bros. Wonder is the same pose or being the pose looks different? --ExoRosalina (talk) 10:45, June 21, 2023 (PHT)

Looks like the same pose. --Whirlwind It's Meester Tweester! 13:03, June 24, 2023 (EDT)

Bowser Jr. Speculation[edit]

I personally think we should refrain from speculating about "A new form of Bowser Jr.". This in no way has been confirmed by Nintendo. 20:31, July 1, 2023 (EDT)SquireTurnbolt

Well, here is a screenshot from the Direct trailer. If you ask me, it certainly looks like Bowser Jr. MarioComix (talk) 21:55, July 1, 2023 (EDT)
Could be a doppelganger. Akin to Dark Bowser, which it also resembles. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 23:21, July 1, 2023 (EDT)

Princess Daisy's appearance[edit]

As Princess Daisy is a playable character in this game, would that make this, excluding Super Mario Run, her Super Mario Bros Debut? Kangaflora (talk) 09:29, July 3, 2023 (EDT)

No offense, but that's basically saying "it's her playable debut if you don't count the game she was playable in previously". Bowser Nightwicked Bowser Bowser emblem from Mario Kart 8 10:27, July 3, 2023 (EDT)
We could say it's her first appearance on a home console Super Mario Bros. game, since her previous 2 appearances in the series (Super Mario Land and Super Mario Run) are both for handheld consoles (Game Boy and mobile phones respectively. BiggestManMario dead in the arcade version of Donkey Kong 14:04, July 26, 2023 (EDT)

New voices?[edit]

Okay, I CAN'T be the only one who's noticing that not just Mario, but even the other playable characters don't really sound the same way they did in past games, right? Defefefe (talk) 17:21, July 11, 2023 (EST)

Could just be different direction, or because they're using entirely original voice clips instead of reused ones. Either way, it's all speculation, so not something that really belongs in the article, unless something official comes out confirming a change. Landfish7 (talk) 17:31, July 12, 2023 (EDT)
Check your newsfeed. It's official. Charles is stepping down. DK Fan
Saw the news as well, it's a shame Martinet is stepping down after so long, so I hope whoever is taking over as Mario and Luigi does a good job succeeding him Defefefe (talk) 14:19, August 21, 2023 (EST)

Bowser 100% Confirmed[edit]

Bowser's just been 100% confirmed to be the main villain of this game (though it was kinda obvious from the trailer): Defefefe (talk) 18:15, July 29, 2023 (EST)

Character exclusive powerups[edit]

So, according to this Brazilian Twitter post, every character will have they're own unique powerup, such as Elephant Mario for example: Defefefe (talk) 17:25, August 9, 2023 (EST)

The screenshots (unless Google Translate is wrong) never mention anything about separate power-ups, only that they can be transformed with "new power-up items". Plus, the second image only mentions Elephant Mario: "Mario turns into Elephant Mario and can use the trunk to defeat enemies!" Even if the post is true, we can't exactly use unconfirmed information from an unofficial source like Twitter. At least it does confirm Elephant Mario uses his trunk as an attack, but that was clear beforehand. Yours truly, RetroNintendo2008. My talk pageMy sandbox 12:15, August 11, 2023 (EDT)

Charles Martinet Retiring[edit]

Not sure if this relates to the game or not, but I think I found out why Mario's voice sounds so different. Charles Martinet is officially retiring from voicing characters: Defefefe (talk) 10:35, August 21, 2023 (EST)

Purple Coin +0.1?[edit]

Is "Purple Coin +0.1" exclusive to "WFX"? Ffffff (talk) 22:47, August 25, 2023 (EDT)

Judging by the trailer, that does appear to be the case. Defefefe (talk) 07:04, August 26, 2023 (EST)


The Flower Kingdom seems to be the setting of the game, although it could also be the first world. A prominent element of terrain is a mountain range made of giant stone warp pipes, which is visible from several levels and parts of the world map. I watched the trailer and found at least 18 distinct levels, although I am not sure about some of them.

  • "Welcome to the Flower Kingdom!" is the first level of the game. It is grassy, with blue dirt. It features brick blocks, ? blocks, pipes (some of which shoot water), trees, and a fountain. To the left, a body of water separates the Flower Kingdom from the Mushroom Kingdom in the background. Enemies include sleeping goombas. Its wonder effect animates pipes. Power-ups include the Super Mushroom and a fruit that turns Mario into Elephant Mario. It has two wonder seeds and a difficulty of one star. (0:03,0:38,1:18,2:05,2:23)
  • "Piranha Plants on Parade" is the second level of the game. It is a jungle level featuring piranha plants and musical note blocks. There is also a background area that looks playable. It has two wonder seeds and a difficulty of one star. (0:18)
  • Very similar to the "Welcome to the Flower Kingdom!" in aesthetic, but features semisolid platforms, spherical hippos and goombrats. It is possibly the third level as seen in the first map shot. (0:22,1:04)
  • A level with cubic structures in the background and sliding rails. Enemies include spiked, leaping enemies and angry thunderclouds. In a higher area, there are cloud platforms and spiked, magenta enemies. (0:25,1:49)
  • A level featuring rainbow music blocks, clouds that rain water, koopa troopas and paratroopas. Wave and shell-shaped islands are visible in the background. An underwater area or similar level features cheep-cheeps and piped nudibranch-like creatures. (0:29,1:44)
  • An autumnal level featuring tall, mushroom-like trees, sloped semisolids, skating koopas and rainbow music blocks. The wonder effect makes Mario, the trees and a Goomba shrink and grow. (0:33,1:06)
  • A cave level where Mario turns into a spiked ball and breaks through brick blocks. Enemies include small bumblebee-esque creatures and Spinies. Buried stone slabs resembling rotating blocks appear as decorations. (1:09)
  • Three potentially different levels with the same aesthetic. A grassy level featuring sliding rails and a skating Wiggler; a level with rainbow music blocks, barrels and a chipmunk; and a level with angular trees where cloud-like ceratopsians stampede during the wonder effect. (1:15,1:30,1:40)
  • Probably the weakest connection. One is a level with balloon-like enemies and giant transparent empty blocks in the background. The other is a level with golden grass on cloudy terrain where Mario uses his hat as a parachute. They have the same cloud style. (1:33,1:51)
  • A deep, junglish level with poison, pipes, a snail and a pipe pusher. (1:35)
  • A ghost house (probably) where pipes are used to traverse background and foreground. In an outdoor area (set against the desert), an ON/OFF switch turns the lights off and on. (1:41,1:46)
  • An autumnal level with bamboo-like enemies, sleeping Goombas, mushroom platforms, orange mushrooms in the background, and pumpkins. (1:47)
  • A level in which the wonder effect makes a giant spiked ball roll towards Mario. (1:55)
  • A level in which players skydive through clouds that clear away when players pass near them. (1:58)
  • A castle in which Mario fights a Bowser Jr.-like boss that shrinks and grows periodically. Bowser's emblem is present in the ceiling. (2:00)
  • A level in which players ride a giant snowball that destroys crystal-like terrain. (2:01)
  • A level set outside Bowser's Castle, featuring Bullet Bill-like missiles. (2:03)
  • Bowser also has a flying vehicle that resembles both a Koopa Clown Car and his castle. It is unknown if this vehicle is a visitable area. (1:38)
  • Several unknown levels appear in a pink cloud world (1:39) 02:11, August 27, 2023 (EDT)

Welcome to the Flower Kingdom! is definitely eligible for an article, seeing as how we have several screenshots of it and whatnot. Piranha Plants on Parade may have to wait a while potentially, and the others will definitely have to wait until either release or more information surfaces. Yours truly, RetroNintendo2008. My talk pageMy sandbox 11:47, August 27, 2023 (EDT)

Possibly Maker games-inspired features[edit]

I feel like there are some features that could be inspired by Super Mario Maker games that are not obvious:

  • The Talking Flowers' dialogue feature feels like it is inspired by in-level comments.
  • The concept of Wonder Effects feel like they are inspired by night theme effects from Maker 2.

Does anyone feel the same? Could we add these as possibilities? Bro Hammer (TalkCont)

Idk, it feels more like a coincidence than anything. I don't suggest adding this until we know for sure if these were intentional references to the Mario Maker games. Defefefe (talk) 14:24, August 31, 2023 (EST)

Doors of Doom implies Doors[edit]

The mimic door enemy Luigi encounters implies real doors will be in the game, similar to the fake pole in Shifty Boo Mansion. I think it's plausible to assume that Doors will be a transportation option, like pipes. (edit: I'm pretty sure you can actually see a door behind Luigi in the characters section of the direct)

Unnamed badge[edit]

I found an unnamed badge in the game's trailer It has a spiral with an arrow going up. Can someone look into this and post it on the main page?

Bloomps & Bulrushes[edit]

Information about what the Bloomps and Bulrushes do, I hope this helps ^_^

(All info taken from the Gamescom 2023 video)


  • Bloomps slowly move and can be bounced on. They deflate the more you bounce on it, before fully deflating
  • They can also be seen getting inflated from green cannons/bullet bill launchers.
  • The pink variations move faster and therefore deflate faster


  • Bulrushes try to ram into the player if they get close, and will destroy any hard blocks in their way.
  • They get knocked out for a bit when they hit a wall and will try to ram into the player again after.

Similar poses on the character select screen?[edit]

I noticed that Peach, Red Yoshi, and Yellow Yoshi's poses on the character select screen might be taken from Mario Party 8, Yoshi Topsy-Turvy, and Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U respectively. Wanted to see what everyone thinks! -- KinokoBlast (talk) 13:02, September 1, 2023 (EST)

I removed SSB4 being a reference from the page earlier, but seeing as multiple of them are similar to past artwork, I think they might be based on them after all. K.K. Slider costume pose in Super Mario Maker Mario JC 13:09, September 1, 2023 (EDT)

Names confirm.[edit]

Wonder effect forms[edit]

Why is Wubba Mario specifically a link, while the others aren't? Seems very, very, strange to meBiggestManMario dead in the arcade version of Donkey Kong 17:18, September 22, 2023 (EDT)

I think it's because the names of the other forms haven't been officially confirmed yet? Not sure if Balloon Mario was officially confirmed though (but it's a form that's been seen before). MarioComix (talk) 00:05, September 23, 2023 (EDT)

Super Mario 3D World[edit]

I am pretty sure that characters turning into beams of light when initiating a Wonder Effect and when waiting too long to enter a Pipe in multiplayer (I cannot remember where exactly I saw this last one, but I do remember seeing it in preview footage) is a reference to Super Mario 3D World where the exact same thing happens with Mystery Boxes, Pipes, etc. in multiplayer. Just wanted to leave this here to hear others' thoughts and to remember this detail.

Bulrush Article[edit]

Would the Bulrushes be eligible for their own article? I feel like they have enough info/media to get one. --MawioMawiolol (talk) 08:49, October 2, 2023 (EDT)

Possible Musical Reference[edit]

This YouTube video ( mentions that the level clear theme may be a reference to a motif from the New Super Mario Bros. series, but I was wondering what you all think since the similarity is pretty weak in my opinion. Jumbo Ray (talk)

Yeah that's not the same thing lmao BiggestManMario dead in the arcade version of Donkey Kong 17:40, October 8, 2023 (EDT)

New Goomba mechanic[edit]

I don't know if this was noticed before, but it turns out players don't take any damage from Goombas if they are either sleeping or have their backs turned: Defefefe (talk) 7:57, October 7, 2023 (EST)

The player can be damaged when a Goomba has its back turned; "Goombas won’t hurt you if you touch them while they sleep and a bit after they wake up" but are still harmful when fully awake, even with their backs turned, as shown in the video. I noted this quality of sleeping Goombas a while back in the main article, though I will add the part about their harmlessness when in the process of waking up. Jumbo Ray (talk)

Lava and poison[edit]

Do lava and poison play different roles in the game?? Both of them will allow Mario to lose a life if touched. There has to be some difference in how they work. An example is that there's a power-up that can allow Mario to walk in lava, but poison will still kill him. 12:12, October 9, 2023 (EDT)

Firstly, by "power-up", I think you mean the Safety Bounce badge. Second, it's still unconfirmed if there is or not but there most likely isn't. We'll have to wait until the game is out (or when more info surfaces) before we speculate. Yours truly, RetroNintendo2008. My talk pageMy sandbox 13:04, October 9, 2023 (EDT)

Forest world known to be World 5??[edit]

This page says worlds 1-3 are known but worlds 4 and 5 are not. A page on one of the forest world's levels, however, says that the forest world is world #5. Can anyone check the truth?? 13:49, October 9, 2023 (EDT)

Fire Flower and Super Star images[edit]

I noticed that the images for the Fire Flower and Super Star are from Mario Kart 8 and Mario Party Superstars. Have these images been used for promotion of the game such as on an official website? --Killer Moth (talk) 14:24, October 13, 2023 (EDT)

Not sure whether they're the exact same image, but they look very similar to these Fire Flower and Super Star images used on the official Japanese website. Blinker (talk) 14:41, October 13, 2023 (EDT)
The Mushroom is the image from the Dash Mushroom from Super Mario Party as well (at least when you hover over the image). Haven't checked the Japanese website yet but there's no mushroom image on the website (I'm on AU) so supposedly we can assume they are placeholders? KTrain5369 (talk) 21:38, November 29, 2023 (EST)

Cloudy Piranhas[edit]

Where is the name Cloudy Piranha used in the game to refer to the big black Piranha Plants? 1468z (talk) 03:16, October 21, 2023 (EDT)

The smokey ones around Castle Bowser or the ones blocking levels? The Cloudy Piranha name is used for the former. Bowser Nightwicked Bowser Bowser emblem from Mario Kart 8 05:27, October 21, 2023 (EDT)
The ones blocking levels. The article uses gameplay as its source but I don't think they are ever named in-game apart from generic descriptions so it might be that the editor confused them with the cloud ones. 1468z (talk) 05:30, October 21, 2023 (EDT)

Bulls Eye Bill?[edit]

Renketsu Search Killer

This right here, probably needs to be considered a different enemy from a Bulls Eye Bill; It looks much different, and behaves a bit differently with the fact its much longer. I am not sure tho - SMM-SMB-DonutBlock.png Donut | just helpin' when I can! (talk) 14:59, October 23, 2023 (EDT)

I agree, we should check the internal name of Bulls Eye Bill in other games and Dragon Bullet in Wonder to see if they match or not.--Alternis (talk) 15:37, October 23, 2023 (EDT)
I don't know anything about how the game's enemies work right now since I'll be saving my playthrough for a later date, but here's what I can say about the Bullet Bills: this is apparently not Bull's-Eye Bill, which, if I recall right, tends to be either shared as a color swap of Killer or goes under KillerSearch, depending on the game. This enemy's model is labeled as EnemyKillerJoinNew.bfres.zs - and, correct me if I'm wrong, but it seems to be one of the enemies that doesn't have a localization string. I guess it would be "Join Killer" going by the direct internal name, since "New" most likely means that there was an old version of the enemy that for whatever reason got deleted. Other oddities: Seeker Bullet Bill is internally named EnemyMagChan.bfres.zs - maybe it wasn't originally a Bullet Bill - and Bloomp is EnemyKillerBalloon.bfres.zs - either it is or was supposed to be a Bullet Bill. And if anyone's wondering, Missile Meg is EnemyKillerLong.bfres.zs - in other words, its Japanese name. LinkTheLefty (talk) 16:28, October 23, 2023 (EDT)

Ok, cool! I suppose I'll go ahead and move this new dragon-like bullet bill to the list of new enemies in a moment - SMM-SMB-DonutBlock.png Donut | just helpin' when I can! 18:06, October 23, 2023 (EDT)

Sproings without the shadow effect[edit]

Hey, so when I was watching a Super Mario Bros Wonder gameplay video, at the penultimate level of the Special World (I think) at one point, we can see the Sproing enemy from the World 1 level Sproings in the Twilight Forest without the shadow effect. From what I remember, their yellow heads looks like a basket, they have green vine springs, and their legs appear to be orange, but this info may be incorrect. Let me know if I am wrong. If it is, do you mind adding the correct info and a picture to the SMBW page? Thanks. 22:09, October 23, 2023 (EDT)

Ok well funny enough I just added some screenshots of em to this page before seeing this lol, and yeah you got the description correct! I sorta see em as acorns or some other sort of nut - SMM-SMB-DonutBlock.png Donut | just helpin' when I can! 22:49, October 23, 2023 (EDT)

I am pretty sure Smogrins (with trailing clouds) and these so-called "Fluff-Puffs" are separate enemies, though the connection with the world name is odd. Jumbo Ray (talk)

Apparently (correct me if i'm wrong) trompettes are just trumpets in french. Could've just been a placeholder name until they got the enemy's actual name, but it does feel a little too specific to just be a placeholder ~ MawioMawiolol Ninji | ( talk )

If you'll pardon the history lesson, Prima guides were bad during the time Nintendo Power made their own. But after the latter ended in 2006, that's when Nintendo started to crack the whip on Prima when it came to quality. It was all on Prima from that point, and their guides were that important. 09:53, November 8, 2023 (EST)
In my (I guess) controversial opinion, Prima guides were almost always better than Nintendo Power guides when both were officially published concurrently in the 2000's, which probably contributed to the downfall of the latter, but that's neither here nor there. I wouldn't be surprised if the Game Informer writer just ignores the question, because hardly anyone wants to be outed as making things up. So until proven otherwise, the names are taken to be conjectural, which is an article title's last resort. Though, I have a question of my own: since these names are getting popularized anyway, would creating redirects be okay? LinkTheLefty (talk) 13:55, November 8, 2023 (EST)

Internal names or conjectural names?[edit]

In the game's page some enemies without an official name are indicated with a conjectural name. In my opinion they should be indicated by their internal name (or the name in another language), since that will certainly be the name used on the respective pages.--Alternis (talk) 12:01, November 3, 2023 (EDT)

The conjectural name would only make sense for similar variants of the same enemy, for example "Bone Trottin' Piranha Plant" or "Big Trottin' Piranha Plant", since they are variants of Trottin' Piranha Plant.--Alternis (talk) 12:06, November 3, 2023 (EDT)
I Agree, if there is an obvious variant like a bone version then we should change their names to that in the article. Maybe also add a title box the same way we do for when there is no official name yet only this title box states that the name is and conjecture based off of what we can reasonably assume the translated name would be.--Sgt.

Wonder and Dark enemy variants[edit]

This is just a thought, but I think that if we have the official name for the normal version of an enemy, I see no reason why the Wonder and Dark enemy variants shouldn't follow the same naming convention.

Standardize formatting of Super Mario Bros. Wonder course names[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.

Consider supertitles to be part of the course name and do not represent line breaks 2-0-11-0

When we started getting wiki article material for this game, whoever first wrote the course names down had to take an arbitrary decision of how to format them. Now that the game is out, I think it's worth reanalyzing it and see what the consensus actually is. There are two interlinked proposals here:

Decide how to represent line breaks in level names

The problem: Stages like The Final Test Wonder Gauntlet are rendered in-game as The Final Test[line break]Wonder Gauntlet, splitting both halves of the name into two strings. The current standard for transliterating these doesn't properly capture this, so we have to come up with a way to represent a line break without using an actual line break.

My solution: I've seen a few pages write them with a colon (Badge Challenge: Parachute Cap I), but I don't think that's a good idea because there are actual stages with a colon in their name, such as The Midway Trial: Hop to It. Personally, I propose an em dash, rendering the name as The Final Test — Wonder Gauntlet. Stages like Badge Challenges and KO Arenas also have a line break, but use a different color for their supertitle. If the bottom proposal passes, the course supertitles would also have an em dash after them.

There might be other, better solutions for how to render this, so please leave them below to add them to the proposal.

Consider supertitles part of the course name

Should stages like Wall-Climb Jump I and Cloud Cover actually be named Badge Challenge Wall-Climb Jump I and Break Time! Cloud Cover? The current standard is that they're not part of the name, but 1) they're never displayed without the supertitle in-game, and 2) I believe it's more informative to have them on the article name. If the other proposal also passes, there would also be an em dash separating the supertitle from the course name.

Proposer: EvieMaybe (talk)
Deadline: November 25, 2023, 03:36 GMT

Represent line breaks with em dashes and consider supertitles part of the course name[edit]

  1. EvieMaybe (talk) i'm probably the person who cares the most about this on the planet.
  2. PopitTart (talk) per proposal. the line breaks should 100% have some kind of separation, and supertitles are still titles.

Represent line breaks with em dashes, do not consider supertitles part of the course name[edit]

Do not represent line breaks with em dashes, but consider supertitles part of the course name[edit]

  1. Rodmjorgeh (talk) This is the Nintendo way, and considering this is a wiki that's trying to be as official as possible I think this is the best route. The dash is not present anywhere and while it does look nicer, it proposes the wrong name and creates incorrect assumptions just like the colon, just not as much of a problem. It's also like this in MSBT files - files that hold the text used in the game. Not only that, but when you place a Standee in a supertitled course (let's say, Badge Challenge Parachute Cap I) and someone uses it, it does say the whole thing, but without line breaks and without dashes: "The standee that was placed in the course Badge Challenge Parachute Cap I has been used.". Nintendo way is best way for sure
  2. MarioComix (talk) Per Rodmjorgeh.
  3. Jdtendo (talk) Per Rodmjorgeh. Moreover, several course names span over two lines whilst both lines are clearly not supposed to be separated ("Welcome to the⏎Flower Kingdom!"), or it is ambiguous whether both lines should be separated ("Pipe-Rock Plateau⏎Palace"). Therefore, choosing when replacing the line break with a dash or not would be arbitrary.
  4. Hewer (talk) Per all.
  5. Sparks (talk) Per all.
  6. Swallow (talk) Per all
  7. FanOfYoshi (talk) Per all.
  8. Arend (talk) I was always supportive of using the courses' full titles, but I was wondering how we should represent the supertitles (since Wiggler Race Mountaineering! and KO Arena Fungi Funk don't convey the message that "Wiggler Race" and "KO Arena" are supposed to be titles nearly as well as Wiggler Race: Mountaineering! and KO Arena: Fungi Funk). But Rodmjorgeh does bring up a good point that the messages for Standees don't use anything to make those supertitles stand out either, so it's probably for the best that we'd do the same. Perhaps we can use color-link templates and the DISPLAYTITLE magic word to give the supertitles a different color like the actual game does?
  9. Camwoodstock (talk) Per Rodmjorgeh--as far as Nintendo's concerned, those are the full titles, and we probably don't need em dashes. Especially since most QWERTY keyboards don't have those inherently, so that'd make them a nightmare to search for. ;P
  10. Biggestman (talk) Per Rodmjorgeh, this is the only logical option in my eyes
  11. Mushroom Head (talk) Per all. As much as I think Nintendo is absolutely stupid, since this option is the way Nintendo chose, I don't see any other option

Do nothing[edit]


Honestly, we could have redirects with em dashes if option 3 passes, or redirects without them if option 1 passes... MHA Super Mushroom:) at 01:01, November 14, 2023 (EST)

To be honest, because the em dashes are not present anywhere in the game, I don't see anyone using them to search for the levels, so I think it's quite unnecessary. If anything they'll search for the non-supertitled name only, which all already have a page and that one would be turned into the redirect. Not to mention as Camwoodstock said, they are not present in most QWERTY keyboards (hey, that's me!) so it's mostly gonna be left unused Official artwork of MarioRodmjorgeh (Psst, let's talk?) 10:09, November 14, 2023 (EST)

Actually, I should mention that when unlocking the final final level, the message you get is "The Final-Final Test: Badge Marathon has appeared in the Special World!", as evidenced in this video. That message seems to indicate that colons are accepted to separate the supertitles even if they don't appear in the level name (at least for this specific course). ArendLogoTransparent.pngrend (talk) (edits) 22:20, November 16, 2023 (EST)

Interesting, although the Standees in that course still don't contain the colon. What I'm guessing is that that's a seperate message from the msbt file containing the course names and they added the colon for better... viewing I guess? because the colon is then not used ever again. It'd be weird to have only that course with the added colon, would create some confusion and inconsistency Official artwork of MarioRodmjorgeh (Psst, let's talk?) 22:29, November 16, 2023 (EST)
sounds like something that could be mentioned in the course's trivia, but yes, i agree that we should prioritize the actual level name EvieMaybe (talk) 08:58, November 17, 2023 (EST)
also, which key is the em dash key again? MHA Super Mushroom:) at 05:51, November 25, 2023 (EST)
An Em Dash is a dash that is the same width as an "m" in normal typography. It doesn't have a designated key on most keyboards as it is considered a special character. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 10:29, November 25, 2023 (EST)
So confusing, i guess that's why we don't use it. MHA Super Mushroom:) at 01:21, November 26, 2023 (EST)

How come custom renders are allowed?[edit]

Custom renders seem to deviate from official/licensed media, so why is it okay for this game? TomAndTheCats (talk)

Same reason any ripped model is. These are just closer to how the game itself depicts them than most of the others we have, since most we have aren't posed or lit properly. Why THIS game specifically is getting more attention than most, I have no idea. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 14:40, November 12, 2023 (EST)
Not only are the models quite high-poly that allows better renders, a lot of enemies lack artwork from Nintendo itself, and I don't see them doing some enemies any time soon. Well, that's mostly why I did it Official artwork of MarioRodmjorgeh (Psst, let's talk?) 15:01, November 12, 2023 (EST)
Are there other games that have custom renders on this wiki? TomAndTheCats (talk) 15:12, November 12, 2023 (EST)
The Game 3D renders category has just custom renders, so you can find the games there Official artwork of MarioRodmjorgeh (Psst, let's talk?) 15:19, November 12, 2023 (EST)

I'm ok with custom renders if, similarly to the wiki's TTYD sprites, they try to replicate what is seen in-game as accurately as possible, same angle and pose and lighting and everything. Whether that idea has been actually put into practice is something I can't say with my current knowledge of the game, though. -- KOOPA CON CARNE 15:27, November 12, 2023 (EST)

Then I'd say that makes them acceptable. Artwork of Donkey Kong in Mario Party Superstars -- KOOPA CON CARNE 15:52, November 12, 2023 (EST)
Should the term be changed to "custom pose" or something? I also think "custom render" sounds a little funky and gave me the false first impression that the models are fanmade. LinkTheLefty (talk) 16:08, November 12, 2023 (EST)
Honestly, "rendered game model" is probably the most accurate and least specific to rendering method. Like if a model was taken from a noclip screenshot, that'd ultimately be the same deal. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 16:11, November 12, 2023 (EST)
"Custom pose" would imply that the uploader rigged the model in a way to create a pose themselves that is normally not found in the game; the pose would be custom-made. But if what Mario said is true, then it's a pose that Nintendo itself has made as part of an official game animation, i.e. not created by the uploader, and not custom-made. "Rendered game model" is fine enough IMO. ArendLogoTransparent.pngrend (talk) (edits) 14:33, November 13, 2023 (EST)
Yes. I document this clearly. The mesh is ripped, the textures are ripped, the bones/rig are ripped, and the animation is ripped. The pose itself is taken from the animation. For example, Robbird's file page. Both the model and animation files are documented in the file pages, with rom addresses pointing to the specific archive file I used and what animation I've used from the archive file (the animation also helpfully points to visibility keyframes, so the eyes and hand poses should be accurate). Nintendo posed this model, which sets it apart from many fan renders which are self-posed. What I've done to the render is angling a camera and lighting the scene (the lighting was my own judgement but I tried to make sure the lighting helps illustrate a model; poor lighting WILL affect how people see the resulting render). Remember, our bind pose models on the wiki are also custom renders, and I thought applying an official animation to an official boneset would at least illustrate the character in a way a screenshot (in which screenshots from emulated games are ALSO technically simulated renders) and basic t-posed model are limited in doing so. I've been somewhat populating the wiki with custom renders created with ripped models and poses for a few years, see Conkdor (file page). I guess the discussion would come up sooner or later but at the time I thought it was a cool thing I could do. Icon showing how many lives Mario has left. From Super Mario 64 DS. It's me, Mario!

As the creator of many of these renders, I try to make it as clear as possible. These renders are not used in the main game article's enemy table (or at least I don't want this) and are found in the gallery section listed alongside other custom renders (pictures of unposed models are also custom renders).

Mario Portal to add enemy gallery on Wonder page later?[edit] Is there a non-zero possibility that they'll add them to this page later on? 18:45, November 28, 2023 (EST)

We're hoping they get proper English names but there is also a nonzero possibility they will never get names too! Icon showing how many lives Mario has left. From Super Mario 64 DS. It's me, Mario! (Talk / Stalk) 18:14, November 28, 2023
You do realize that the other ones do have names, but Nintendo are just hiding them from us. I don't understand what you're saying here. Will they add that enemy list there later or no? 09:52, November 29, 2023 (EST)
I believe what Mario the wiki admin means is what you said. We'll just need to wait and see if Nintendo do reveal official English names for these enemies. Bowser Nightwicked Bowser Bowser emblem from Mario Kart 8 10:05, November 29, 2023 (EST)
I'm not even sure that these enemies have official English names currently. Nintendo relied on internal names when they made the game, and it might be that they don't bother creating official names so long as they don't need to show them to the public. Jdtendo(T|C) 11:35, November 29, 2023 (EST)
The thing is, they do have official names, but they just didn't have the chance to put them out there. It's clear that they're being hidden from us until they get said chance at another time.

(Operation Poplin Rescue) 'Final level' of Fungi Mines?[edit]

I would've added this to the talk page for Operation Poplin Rescue if it existed. There isn't one for Fungi Mines either, so this is the most relevant place to put this topic.

I don't think Operation Poplin Rescue counts as an actual course. It's treated the same as the Poplin Houses in-game.

  • It's listed where the Poplin Houses are on the course selection menu.
  • The retry option and the ability to become a ghost online are disabled.
  • There is no message that appears when 'clearing' the course in online multiplayer.
  • No opportunity is given for the player to change their badge before starting the course.

The only reason I could see it being counted as a main level is its Wonder Effect. If this could be counted as a proper course, why not 'Badge House in Pipe-Rock Plateau' or the short cutscene areas between the book chapters in Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker? 06:42, December 2, 2023 (EST)

Official names for Wonder Effects?[edit]

About that "Hot-Hot Hot" name...[edit]

I think popcorn-like enemies, or Morocon, are literally called "Hot-Hot", that. :/ BlakeMobilesOnMarioWiki (talk) 15:29, December 13, 2023 (EST)

"Hot-Hot" refers to the Hot-Hot Rocks (which are officially named in the "Break Time! Hot-Hot Rocks" level name). I doubt that's the name of the Morocon since the level's name in Japanese is 「灼熱のアチアチストリート」 (Shakunetsu Achi-achi Sutorīto, Scorching Hot-Hot Street), which references the Japanese name of Hot-Hot Rocks, 「アチアチ石」 (Achi-achi ishi), and "Morocon" is already a Japanese-derived name. K.K. Slider costume pose in Super Mario Maker Mario JC 04:46, December 14, 2023 (EST)
I knew Hot-Hot Rocks and "Hot-Hot" share the same name, but Hot-Hot Rocks have "Rocks" at the end of their name. BlakeMobilesOnMarioWiki (talk) 15:22, December 15, 2023 (EST)
You think that since they appear in a level with a repetitive name that must be their name specifically? Where's the title specifically referring to that enemy? This is some Hootenanny-level jumping to conclusions. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 01:50, December 16, 2023 (EST)
There's literally no correlation for the Morocon enemies to be named "Hot-Hot"; the "Hot-Hot" is clearly derived from the Hot-Hot Rocks, as shown with the Break Time level name, which does not feature the Morocon enemies at all, and the name "Morocon" (which comes from Japanese) doesn't include anything from the Japanese name of the Hot-Hot Rocks. Compare that to the internal filename for Revver and the Japanese name for Break Time! Revver Run, the latter including "チョロチュー" (Chorochū) in its name and matching with the former's internal name of "Chorochu". Furthermore, the Morocon enemy itself doesn't really show anything that could possibly match or relate to something being "Hot-Hot". Sure, it reacts to heat, but the enemy itself isn't hot, as it can be defeated with a single stomp just fine. ArendLogoTransparent.pngrend (talk) (edits) 14:54, December 16, 2023 (EST)

Japanese Enemy Names[edit]

So, the official Japanese strategy guide has been released, and it seems like the official names are out there now. I can't verify most of these 100%, but they seem accurate so I figure I should post them here for the enemies that only use internal names. Some of these were already added to articles, but I'll post them again just for posterity's sake. A lot of them are the same as the internal filenames, but some are different.

  • Erin = エリン (Erin)
  • Snail = マイマイ (Maimai)
  • Smogrin = モクモクモ (Mokumokumo)
  • Uminoko = スッポコ (Suppoko)
  • Slidon = スライドン (Suraidon)
  • Chin Anago = シウミウ (Shiumiu)
  • Rumble = ランブル (Ranburu, "Rumble")
  • Morocon = モロコン (Morokon)
  • Takebo = タケボー (Takebō)
  • Mecha Koopa Mk 2 = ホバーメカクッパ (Hobā Mekakuppa, "Hover Mechakoopa")
  • Metallic Takebo variant = メタルタケボー (Metaru Takebō, "Metal Takebo")
  • Houhou = ホウホウ (Hōhō)
  • Meramera = ボーボー (Bōbō)
  • Jump Toge = ビリピョン (Biripyon)
  • Hakandoru = ハコンドル (Hakondoru)
  • Moving Door = トビー (Tobī)
  • Hanabihei = ハナビへい (Hanabi-Hei)
  • Fire Spike = ファイアガボン (Faia Gabon, "Fire Spike")
  • Tsubochan = ツボチャン (Tsubochan)
  • Join Killer = 連結サーチキラー (Renketsu Sāchi Kirā, "Linking Bulls-Eye Bill")

Can't verify these names 100% as they're second-hand, but from what I can tell they're likely the actual ones. Hopefully we'll get official English names for some of these before too long. BubbleRevolution (talk) 21:54, January 1, 2024 (EST)

I acquired the official Japanese strategy guide and I can confirm that all of the names listed by BubbleRevolution are correct. For completeness, here are the remaining official Japanese names from the enemy list:

  • Big Snail = こでかマイマイ (Kodeka Maimai, "Small Big Snail")
  • Medium-sized Smogrin = こでかモクモクモ (Kodeka Mokumokumo, "Small Big Smogrin")
  • Big Snootle = でかコロブー (Deka Korobū)
  • Big Seeker Bullet Bill = でかチェイスキラー (Deka Cheisu Kirā)
  • Big Smogrin = でかモクモクモ (Deka Mokumokumo)
  • Big Trottin' Piranha Plant = でかランランパックン (Deka Ranran Pakkun)
  • Bloomp pump = ブースケ砲台 (Būsuke Hōdai, "Bloomp Artillery")
  • Bone Trottin' Piranha Plant = ランランほねパックン (Ranran Hone Pakkun, "Trottin' Bone Piranha")
  • Dark Koopa Troopa = 影ノコノコ (Kage Nokonoko, "Shadow Koopa Troopa")
  • Dark Mario = 影マリオ (Kage Mario, "Shadow Mario")
  • Wonder Anglefish = ワンダーエイミー (Wandā Eimī)
  • Wonder Gnawsher = ワンダーガシガシ (Wandā Gashigashi)
  • Wonder Hoppo = ワンダーコロンポリン (Wandā Koronporin)
  • Wonder Bulrush Herd = ワンダートッシン群 (Wandā Tosshin Gun)
  • Wonder Smackerel = ワンダーハイデン (Wandā Haiden)
  • Wonder Bloomp = ワンダーブースケ (Wandā Būsuke)
  • Expert (orange Hoppycat) = ワンダーホッピン (Wandā Hoppin, "Wonder Hoppycat")
  • Wonder Missile Meg = ワンダーロングキラー (Wandā Rongu Kirā)

Below are unofficial names created for the strategy guide because no official name exists:

  • Snail shell = マイマイの殻 (Maimai no kara)
  • Giant Konk (during a Wonder Effect) = 巨大なゴッツン (Kyodai na Gottsun)
  • Giant Hoppycat (during a Wonder Effect) = 巨大なホッピン (Kyodai na Hoppin)

You should get the other official guide (かんぺき攻略本 Kanpeki Kouryuakubon by Kadokawa) as well to see if there are any differences. One that I noticed is that Kodeka Kakiboh/"Big Goombrat" is not listed in Nindori guide. SmokedChili (talk) 07:08, January 7, 2024 (EST)

A note on the Game Informer source[edit]

Question.svg This talk page or section has a conflict or a question that needs to be answered. Please try to help and resolve the issue by leaving a comment.

As the person who emailed Brian Shea, I should say I only asked about the names "Trompette" and "Swirlypod" and those are the only two he said were officialy given to him by Nintendo. I had to undo a bunch of edits citing that email response I recieved because any other name used is unconfirmed (such as the Wonder Effect variants and larger versions of enemies) and may very well just be conjectural. As noted with Wow Bud, some of the names used in said article are merely conjectural, so everything in it shouldn't be treated as an official Nintendo-sanctioned name apart from the two enemies I mentioned. BubbleRevolution (talk) 19:33, January 9, 2024 (EST)

Fair enough, the scope of the response was misunderstood, but hold the phone - the Game Informer piece got "Downpour Cloud" before it was mentioned in this very article, and that's in the same boat as Marimba Block, where it has a localized internal string. In other words, it first appeared in Game Informer before it got sourced from the game. That alone makes it pretty clear there's more to this than Trompette and Swirlypod. If he's open to questions, why not reask for clarification on the rest of the names (or, better yet, if he'd be willing to share the list of Nintendo-approved names)? LinkTheLefty (talk) 08:29, January 11, 2024 (EST)
The impression I have from the article is that the Wow Bud is referred to as a "flower bud" 41 times in the article, and only once is that capitalized, so I think the author is indicating that that specific name is being applied here in an informal sense. That one capitalization is most definitely a mistake. I have a different impression from the subjects that are consistently capitalized and have discrete applications in the article. In lieu of any clarification from a more direct source, I think these names, such as Downpour Cloud or Topple Rock, should be treated as official. Names that are lowercase from this source should not be. - Nintendo101 (talk) 12:40, January 12, 2024 (EST)

Jumping off this point, I'm not sure why the wiki is so committed to using game models as the main image in each individual enemy page. I feel like there is no other game where this is standard and it's common to simply use screenshots instead but everytime I put the screenshots as the images it gets changed sooner or later. Do you feel the same way for those pages, shouldn't the models be in the gallery and have the main image be a real game screenshot? I'm not sure where else to put this but this is topically related so there we go. — Qyzxf (talk) 15:29, February 2, 2024 (EST)
Over time I have come to be pro screenshots, but I think they are sometimes integrated in ways that look messy, the subject is out of focus, or the visual fidelity is poor. For the 3D games like Galaxy and Sunshine, I had integrated screenshots that are squared and in focus. I think the uniformity looks appealing, but that might just be saying more about me than anything else. But while screenshots are fine, I think models offer nice neutral displays in the same way 2D sprites do for the older games, and there are definitely contexts where that is preferred over a screenshot. You can still make out the general visual details/shape of a model or sprite when they are scaled down, whereas the subject of a screenshot sometimes gets warped too much. Others might feel differently though. - Nintendo101 (talk) 18:58, February 2, 2024 (EST)
