Paper Mario[edit]

What are all the enemies of Paper Mario doing in that list? ôo - GabuGabu.png Gabumon(talk) 11:18, 1 December 2009 (EST)

I'm pretty sure that someone didn't finish...ಠ_ಠ--FREAK ~Game GameBros.png Freak~ OUT!
Yeah, but for such cases we have that nifty little Construction template which I just stamped on the article. Seriously, we cannot create articles, leave them half-finished (with false information in them) and then not tagging it with said template. If visitors see this page and spot PM enemies in a SMRPG bestiary, they'll make a heel-face-turn and leave in a flash. - GabuGabu.png Gabumon(talk) 11:38, 1 December 2009 (EST)
Sorry. I started work on this at around 7 in the morning, after having stayed up all night, so I saved with the intent to finish later. I marked the Summary with that information, but adding a Construction tag slipped my mind. The reason Paper Mario enemies are included is because rather than re-type the entire template, I just work off one that's already done. Redstar 12:35, 1 December 2009 (EST)

You should probably hold off on editing this, seeing as there's a proposal about it.--Knife (talk) 14:11, 1 December 2009 (EST)

Missing enemies[edit]

There are quite a number of enemies (and bosses parts) missing from this Bestiary. I don't know if it is because of a Bestiary taken from another source (such as a game guide), but I think it would be a good idea to add those missing enemies in some way. -- Iamabrawler 19:05, 27 June 2013 (EST)

Isn't is completed[edit]

I check out the list there is no error anymore. I think we should remove that warning.
The preceding unsigned comment was added by ‎Tekniknaldo1 (talk).

The template should stay because the images aren't in a consistent format (all should ideally be .png and static).

Other Stats[edit]

While this page may be a bestiary and all, I'm seeing that stats such as coins and items dropped, experience points, element weaknesses and others aren't listed here. Maybe we should have a fully detailed list of enemy stats like the one shown here?

What do you think? --Zootalo (talk) 10:00, 3 October 2013 (EDT)

I don't see why not.

Removing Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars bestiary[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.

KEEP 0-9

Now that the List of enemy stats in Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars is basically complete, this bestiary should be deleted. Using a hacking program called Lazy Shell, all the stats from all the (non-dummied) enemies in the game are listed on the new stat page -- including obscure ones such as speed, evade rates, item rates, and others not listed from the Player's Guide and perhaps anywhere else. The statistics there should be as accurate as they come, and what's listed in the bestiary are only the basics.

Support[edit]

  1. Gonzales Kart Inc. (talk) Pointless page, can get rid of it.

Oppose[edit]

  1. Baby Luigi (talk) I don't understand why we even need a second page of enemy stats when the bestiary will do; just expand or rework the entire bestiary with the existing new stat page and refrain from making a second one. The whole bestiary thing is inconsistent anyway - there is a Paper Mario bestiary, Thousand-Year Door bestiary, and there's list of enemy stats. Moving the page will further break the consistency.
  2. Yoshi876 (talk) Per Baby Luigi, also this page goes through the boundaries so it looks less professional than the bestiary.
  3. LeftyGreenMario (talk) Per Baby Luigi, and besides,the page you mentioned lacks images it needs, so moving the images from the bestiary is going to involve an amount of work.
  4. Ultra Koopa (talk) Per all.
  5. Walkazo (talk) - This page is good the way it is: it shouldn't be deleted, moved or even changed. If you want the extra info about drop items and whatnot, just check the actual enemy pages, because the table with everything is so busy and uses such small text, it's almost unusable (especially if your computer has a small screen).
  6. Randombob-omb4761 (talk) Per all.
  7. driftmaster130 (talk) Per all.
  8. Megadardery (talk) Per all
  9. Icemario11 (talk) Per all.

Comments[edit]

Besides, the enemy stat page is still very incomplete - it's still missing more than 80% of the sprites. BabyLuigiFire.png(T|C) 19:24, 29 October 2013 (EDT)

@Yoshi876: The page doesn't go through the boundaries at my computer resolution (1920 x 1080). But, ideally, it shouldn't break the boundaries at any resolution. Mario Green.pngKaBoom! 00:01, 30 October 2013 (EDT)

1920 x 1080 is too big, and uncommon for most computers. If it must be so big, at least it should not break the boundaries at (1024 x 768) the lowest common resolution. It even breaks the boundaries at my 1366 x 768 resolution.--

Honestly, I originally planned to expand on this bestiary to include the stats not even listed here in the first place (Spells, Strengths, Weak Points, Exp, Coins, etc.), and when I realized that there were also other important ones not even listed on any other site (FP, Speed, Evade and Magic Evade %, Item Drop %, Transformation %, etc.), I decided to make another chart and the stat page without interfering with the bestiary. Of course, since there are so many enemy statistics from this game compared to the other Mario RPGs, the chart's fonts had to be shrunken down to fit everything.
If the bestiary is to be expanded upon (or merged), we should have viewers be able to see all these stats on a chart without the need to go to separate pages, but at the same time still be within the boundaries of any computer resolution. Any suggestions? --Zootalo (talk) 01:27, 10 November 2013 (EST)

Icons[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.

Every other bestiary solely uses sprites. This one, however, uses artwork when available. While I can understand this, as the spites are prerendered from the same models the artwork uses, it's still quite jarring, as well as inconsistent with itself and other bestiaries. I think it should be entirely sprites, as that's how they appear in-game, and as such, are most recognizeable through them (particularly with ones like Sparky, who due to how the sprites worked in those instances only superficially resembled the artwork in-game). Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 00:34, 11 November 2017 (EST)

Pardon, but which enemies use artwork here? They all look like sprites to me (the only one that's off is Bundt, but according to the file description, it's just a poorly cleaned sprite). Hello, I'm Time Turner. 00:40, 11 November 2017 (EST)
When I see these transcluded onto pages, I often see artwork.... Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 00:43, 11 November 2017 (EST)
That's because the images are being added on the individual pages themselves. They're not being transcluded from here. Hello, I'm Time Turner. 00:50, 11 November 2017 (EST)
OK then, they should be removed from those infoboxes on those pages, as it creates really bad inconsistencies. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 01:27, 11 November 2017 (EST)
It's artwork. Not every subject has artwork. Every subject uses the best image that's available to them, regardless of its source. This is true for every game. We are not gimping page quality anytime soon. Hello, I'm Time Turner. 01:32, 11 November 2017 (EST)
Given that when this page gets a transclusion section, the bestiary box will use the sprite, not the artwork, I couldn't beg to differ more. Also, note how the bestiary pages for Fawful, for example, all use sprites, not artwork, despite their being plenty of art for him as well. It's the exact same thing. It's just very jarring and somewhat cringe-inducing to go onto this page and have the bestiary box have artwork and then go onto its recolor and have it use a much smaller sprite. It's bad aesthetic to be that inconsistent. The Artwork should go somewhere else on the page. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 02:29, 11 November 2017 (EST)
Again, different pages use different types of images for their infoboxes all the time. We're not about to use sprites for every single page just because not all of them have high quality artwork. Should Toadbert not use artwork because Toadiko doesn't have any? It shouldn't matter what kind of infobox is being used, especially when the page only has one. If the artwork gives the best impression of the character, why should that be shoved to the side? Lead with your best foot forward. Hello, I'm Time Turner. 10:51, 11 November 2017 (EST)

Adding links to all entries[edit]

I noticed on Axem Reds page that the status conditions he is weak to (fear, sleep, etc) don't have links. I'm assuming this is because on this page, where the bestiary entries are stored, the links to these and many other pages are done early on without repeating the links in every entry. However, this means that on many pages, like Axem Red, there are no links to these pages, even though its the only time its mentioned on that page.

My proposal is to add a link to any and all occasions where there could be a link, so that it appears in the bestiary entries of every relevant page. I would probably be fine with doing this myself if no one else wanted to, but I just want to put it out there before I do all of that work and it gets reversed.
