From the Super Mario Wiki, the Mario encyclopedia

Is there any evidence that Tatanga was actually hired by Wario to invade Sarasaland and kidnap Daisy? Like, a statement in a manual or player's guide; I mean, just because he was working for Wario in Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins doesn't really mean he was working with him all along. -- Sir Grodus

We could always rewrite the section to state that it is assumed that Wario hired Tatanga to do all that. -- Shyghost.PNGChrisShyghost.PNG 17:52, 6 March 2007 (EST)

I think there was something about it at the end if the game, but I'm not sure.Knife (talk) 20:42, 6 March 2007 (EST)

Which one? Super Mario Land or Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins? I know one guy who has the first one and another who has the second, I could check them, but it could take a while to get/beat them. -- Sir Grodus

No problem, its a short game. Instead of actually trying to beat the game or asking people to beat it for you, you should maybe research the FAQs or other websites.Knife (talk) 20:51, 6 March 2007 (EST)

I just read the manual. It says nothing about him being hired by Wario. Delsait 23:46, 27 January 2010 (EST)


Are all the quotes from Tatanga himself? Does he talk in the third-person? -- Son of Suns

Yes,he talk in third-person. User:Gofer

Though rarely, like most megalomaniacs, he does refer to himself in the third person, in the comics. -- Sir Grodus


There's a problem on Wikipedia where someone refuses to believe Tatanga was in this game. Do any of you know of a reliable source that says Tatanga is in the game? Links to the problem: [1] [2][3] Any help would be appreciated. BAPACop 22:08, 20 September 2009 (EDT)

I don't understand how anyone could doubt that... Just compare the two official artworks on this article. Even if the spaceship's appearance is different, the person who operates it remains exactly (and I mean EXACTLY) the same... Why don't you give that person your japanese sources? If they are official, refusing to aknowledge your edit is invalid. - GabuGabu.png Gabumon(talk) 22:16, 20 September 2009 (EDT)
Well, the problem there is I'm not the person who found those sources, I'm just the one actually holding the conversation. I've asked that poster if he can provide them... I made a huge list of sites (including this one) that say that Tatanga makes an appearance, but he rejected them on the basis that they were "fan-speculation." He'd probably shoot down the official artwork simply because it's on a wiki and not I provided a gameplay video from YouTube, but he discounts that based on that we'd have to "speculate that that's Tatanga", and that YouTube is not a reliable source.

Common sense is my source for believing both aliens are the same.--Knife (talk) 18:39, 21 September 2009 (EDT)

I second that. Wario even hints to Tatanga in the game's manual by mentioning Mario's adventure in Sarasaland. - GabuGabu.png Gabumon(talk) 18:57, 21 September 2009 (EDT)
My experience with the other editor is that he refuses to follow common sense; if you couldn't find a reliable source that said the Earth was a sphere he'd make you take it out. He won't accept hints either, just a sentence specifically naming the boss Tatanga.
Has Nintendo ever published it? Is there a Nintendo Power article on the game I could use? BAPACop 23:21, 22 September 2009 (EDT)

Hold on a minute...[edit]

I think I saw Tatanga in the Astronaut page of Super Mario and freinds when I grow up...
