Fresh Juice[edit]

So this has the same JP name and effect as Fresh Juice, seems pretty clear-cut to me. Likely why they called it "soda" is that in Western countries, canned juice isn't as common as it is in Japan (which if Azumanga Daioh is anything to go by is fairly common), which isn't a problem in its TTYD redesign. Anyways, I think we should merge these. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 23:15, October 27, 2019 (EDT)

The Thousand-Year Door item doesn't cure Tiny, so because of that, I'm a bit hesitant on this one. Fresh Juice is clearly meant to be a replacement, but I can't say it's the same item. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 23:41, October 27, 2019 (EDT)
Its Japanese name is literally English for "Fresh Juice" XD Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 23:47, October 27, 2019 (EDT)
I'm aware, but the properties are different. We shouldn't merge things just because the Japanese names between two items are the same alone. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 23:52, October 27, 2019 (EDT)
Tiny is such an uncommon ailment it wouldn't surprise me if they just forgot it did that. Heck, I can't remember if enemies can give Mario that status in TTYD, making curing it irrelevant. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 00:10, October 28, 2019 (EDT)
Pretty sure the Wizzerds and Magikoopas might be good for that off the top of my head. Not absolutely sure, though. --ExdeathIcon.png Lord G. matters. ExdeathIcon.png 01:26, October 28, 2019 (EDT)
Not Wizzerds, but possibly Magikoopas (their bestiary description says "status ailments"). Hammer Bros. could in the first PM, but not the second. Regardless, precise properties of items change all the time, like how pretty much every consumable cures poison in SPM. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 01:31, October 28, 2019 (EDT)
I'm including all variants, but still might be right there. At the least enemies might end up spawning with a Mini Mr. Mini or something. --ExdeathIcon.png Lord G. matters. ExdeathIcon.png 01:41, October 28, 2019 (EDT)
I can't remember if they ever do, actually. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 01:46, October 28, 2019 (EDT)
I'd be in favor of a merge. Niiue - Who has lost his tail? 15:43, November 3, 2019 (EST)

Merge to Fresh Juice[edit]

See above. This has the same basic application and JP name as the Fresh Juice (that literally being "fresh juice"). Canned Juice is more of a "normal" thing in Japan than America, so they probably changed it to soda as a cultural translation. As for the TTYD one, it's obviously not a soda, so they had to go a different route. The only difference in function is that it doesn't cure shrinking, but I honestly can't remember a time when an enemy shrinks Mario in TTYD (Hammer Bros. have the ability removed, for example).
