More information[edit]

Are we not going to make a page or mention of the yoshi sphinx/sphinxes found in other desert locations, such as as seen here or here? I think it re-occurs enough to at least make some larger mention. Trig - 10:57, October 17, 2019 (EDT)

Eh, it's basically just a background detail outside of Sticker Star, I don't see why it would need an article. --MK8DX Waluigi Icon.png Too Bad! Waluigi Time! 17:59, October 17, 2019 (EDT)
It still is notable, appearing in so many games, and being an entire level. A do think that this page should be expanded or split to add its appearances in other games. Doomhiker (talk)Topmini.png 18:15, October 17, 2019 (EDT)
How many games is it in, anyway? All I know of is Super Circuit, Mario Kart Wii, and Sticker Star. If anything, we could mention that a Yoshi sphinx appears in those games in the trivia, but I don't see why it deserves its own page. Is there any precedent for recurring background elements getting pages? --MK8DX Waluigi Icon.png Too Bad! Waluigi Time! 18:21, October 17, 2019 (EDT)
It appeared in Super Circuit, Mario Kart Wii, and Sticker Star. And while there is not a precedent, the fact that it is a stage alone makes it worthwhile to create an article for it. The fact that it appeared in previous games is not trivia, as it is part of the subject's history, just like anything else appearing in a background.

Yeah, I'm not at all convinced we need to make a separate article for the Mario Kart appearances. It should just be mentioned here, although I think we should avoid claiming that they're the exact same sphinx, since I highly doubt it. --MK8DX Waluigi Icon.png Too Bad!

Trig said "a page or mention". Other instances of Yoshi-like Sphinxes warrant a mention, per an "Other appearances" section or similar. Not much to argue about once we get past that initial misunderstanding. --ExdeathIcon.png Lord G. matters. ExdeathIcon.png 18:42, October 17, 2019 (EDT)
On the Yoshi Sphinx page we would put the Sticker Star sphinx in the history section, we would just a main article (this) for the level. Doomhiker (talk)Topmini.png 19:36, October 17, 2019 (EDT)
Yeah, this page deserves expansion and a rewrite so let's delete it. I'm fine with mentioning it. TheDarkStar MLBISBJJDarkStar.png 19:55, October 17, 2019 (EDT)
