Talk:Takko

From the Super Mario Wiki, the Mario encyclopedia

Do these creatures count as enemies? I’m just wondering, since they can’t hurt Yoshi and can help him by squirting out ink. I ask this mainly because on the Yoshi’s Crafted World article, Takko is in a separate “Other” section with Snakey, who is definitely an enemy. This leaves only Takko. I was wondering if I should move him to the “Allies” or “Enemy” sections, or keep him in a separate section.

Unlike Snakeys, Takko(s?) are harmless, so they go in the allies section. Super Mushroom Artwork - Super Mario 3D World.png Obsessive Mario Fan MK8DX Mario Icon.png 11:51, January 22, 2020 (EST)
Takko is in the /Game/Assets/Characters/Enemy folder, albeit along with UckyKong, SnowUckyKong, and EnemyRhino (Rhinonos). LinkTheLefty (talk) 15:09, January 22, 2020 (EST)
Why does that matter if Takko's clearly not an enemy? TheDarkStar MLBISBJJDarkStar.png 15:25, January 22, 2020 (EST)
It's a minor detail, but it is our source for the name and could have easily gone in a different folder. LinkTheLefty (talk) 15:33, January 22, 2020 (EST)
On a related note, in GBDK, the Monkkiki and Jumper are treated no differently than most enemies other than not being killable, and in SMO, the only indication Coin Coffers are enemies is NPCs freak out at them. Pretty sure SMG2 guides refer to Pinhead as an enemy too. It could be considered a "harmless enemy," I suppose. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 16:46, January 22, 2020 (EST)

Hmmmm. Interesting. Perhaps Takko is an enemy? If that’s the case, it will be moved into the enemies section, described as harmless. What about the Baby Rhinono, Uckykong, and Snow Ucky Kong? Super Leaf SMAS SMB3 sprite.png The Mansion Super Leaf SMAS SMB3 sprite.png 08:13, January 23, 2020 (EST)

Well as LTL mentioned above, they're in the enemies folder too. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 13:17, January 23, 2020 (EST)
But they don't function as enemies, just like UckyKongs and the Baby Rhinono. Super Mushroom Artwork - Super Mario 3D World.png Obsessive Mario Fan MK8DX Mario Icon.png 19:41, January 23, 2020 (EST)

Takko/s may be considered enemies or allies, but it is important to note very few of them do appear in the game, in the moon portion of The Countdown Begins. Additionally, Little Mousers cannot hurt Yoshi either, but they are also considered enemies. Super Leaf SMAS SMB3 sprite.png The Mansion Super Leaf SMAS SMB3 sprite.png 14:48, January 24, 2020 (EST)
