Recent Activity: Became the DYK Brigadier, cancelled my proposal, watched the new form of Bull's-Eye Bill discussion fade and die, quarreled over beans, and saw that darn Cheep-Cheep discussion continue, but on user talk pages.
This article is about the user who splits contractions and constantly watches the recent changes. For the actual thing, see the Dark Star.

“Saying that there are Power Stars in Super Mario 64 is like saying there are Goombas in World 1-1.”
TheDarkStar, voicing their opinion on obvious statements.
“It's immune to ice, but it's not immune to ice? What?”
TheDarkStar, confused over Ice Cherbil's article saying that they are immune to ice, but can still be frozen.
“If (parameter5 is N/A) remove parameter5”
TheDarkStar, using their Javascript knowledge to state their opinion on {{aboutfile}}s that do not remove unused parameters, instead using "N/A".

Hello, I'm TheDarkStar.[1] I joined the wiki on February 10, 2019. I usually put my quotes here before putting them on MarioWiki:BJAODN or anywhere else. If you need help with something, please ask me on my talk page.
I can also be found on the Discord server. I administrate the Parallel Universe server.
There used to be a long-winded userpage here with lots of superfluous sections, but I cleaned that up.
CURRENT PROJECT: Adding enemy counts for NSMBW World 4 level articles.
My shiny sandbox.


  • RV: Reverting vandalism
  • PWWB: Previous wording was better
  • PFNWB: Previous filename was better
  • PW: Poorly written
  • RC: Removing contractions
  • CTP: Creating talk page
  • STE: Saved too early
  • MRM: Moving RE: message
  • :/ : What.
  • WiKirby Writing: Poor writing, often of the "this isn't a JK Rowling novel dangit" kind. I tend to use this term while rewriting WiKirby pages, but don't do so often because I know I'll be reverted anyway because I personally don't like editing it. I can't stand the loading times. Also it's one of my least favorite NIWA wikis.

Game reviews

My own reviews of games!
Please assume that all NES, SNES, and N64 games here are on Virtual Console, except Super Mario All-Stars. That one got rereleased on Wii.

Game Pros Cons Notes/Rating Completion
Donkey Kong (NES) They somehow ported an arcade game to the inferior NES. Levels have variety (75m has moving platforms and 100m has a kinda-sorta-boss-fight) Springs make their first appearance (GO NSMB Tram.pngS). Sprites are surprisingly decent for an NES port (except for Jumpman, that sprite is the horrifying face of terrible) ♪Hammer theme♪ Falling damage in a platformer is the sole reason I haven't beat this already. Jumps are way too low for a guy called "Jumpman". He can barely clear a barrel rolling straight at him. For context, in NSMBW, Mario can easily vault over a barrel with little-to-no effort. WHERE IS MY PIE FACTORY?! Not as bad as the sequel.

Oh, and it single-handedly saved video games.
Falling damage keeps me from beating 75m.
Donkey Kong Jr. (NES) Nothing here, nope. I like to pretend this game doesn't exist, while also happily playing Action 52 and watching Foodfight! of my own free will. That should say something about my hatred for this game. Controls are of the sucky variety. Mario is the villain. Apparently, "My Theories Are A Piano!" was right. You may scream in terror when you realize that his awful sprite from Donkey Kong is back. What? No. There are no notes here.
"Hey, Bobby, play that song about never being able to beat level one!" "Sure thing, Johnny!" *thumpity thumpity thump-thump* *cluster chord*
Super Mario Bros. Aw yeah, now we're doing this right! No more smelly apes, just platforming action! I can kill turtles by using their shells like soccer balls. Satisfying does not begin to describe it. Bowser is an enemy in disguise in the first seven castles. That's a really nice touch that I wish was in more games. Music is wonderful. ♪Everything looks awful!♪
♪Everything looks uncool, to the TDS "team"!♪
(You can have a team with one star, right?)
♪Everything looks awful!♪
♪It's a graphical cluster chord, I believe!♪
♪Everything may be better when the Goombas stick together♪
♪Side by side, here they are, about to change stuff!♪
♪Then they get stomped because Mario's still the villain!♪
♪This page is very bloated!♪
♪Only a megafan would read it all♪
♪Because of superfluous stuff♪
♪Like the Wiki Records!♪
Yes, I just parodied Everything Is Awesome. 7/10. 8-2 and its Lakitu can go to the Underwhere.
Super Mario Bros. 2 UNDERWHERE YEAH. This Game has deserved A Divine Sequel for thirty years, but the closest It has gotten to A Divine Sequel is Super Mario Bros. X2. A sequel to a game that got taken down. Yeah. Every boss is equally amazing, but the best would have to be Mouser, for the sole reason that you get to blow him to smithereens with his own bombs. I practically worship this Divine Game. There are no cons, as that would be blasphemy. This is my favorite Super Mario game for a good reason. 11/10. Made it to 7-2 using All-Stars's save mechanic, failed. 7-1 is very hard for a cloud level.
Super Mario Bros. 3 Difficult, but still fun. I love the Raccoon Suit, except for one detail: YOU MUST PRESS THE BUTTON CONTINUOUSLY TO FLY. Death to thumbs worldwide, I guess. New enemies are great, as always. Game is much longer than both its predecessors. No save function? In a game with eight worlds, each with seven, eight, or even ten levels? Either the devs were temporarily replaced with cymbal-banging monkeys for the day, or the devs were too distracted by fighting off Ź̧a̸l҉̶g͝o̧҉͏ to add a save function on deadline. Game gets ridiculously hard at times (I'm looking at you, 7-5) Nice, but not as nice as SMB2. 9/10. Cannot beat World 8-1.
Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars D: D: D: ♪OHHHHHHHHHHH...♪
No, seriously, this game sucks even if you don't sing a song about it. THE TRANSLATORS ARE NEOSQUID LEVELS OF TERRIBLE. Everyone is a doll... EVERYONE...
I think I may have found a game capable of coming a close second to Donkey Kong Jr. 2/10. Ran out of Flower Points at Bowyer's battle, but I didn't have any Syrup. And I saved before I got there, meaning that I was officially stuck forever. The bugtesters must have been sick that day.

TheDarkStar's Guide to Being an Amazing User

This wiki has thousands of users, but very few regulars (relatively speaking, of course). This guide aims to teach users how to be amazing users in a step-by-step manner and grow the amount of regulars we have on the wiki.
Here we go.

Step One: Check your user talk page very often.

What the heck is a user talk page?!

A user talk page is a page in the namespace "User talk", used for discussing things with other users. Everyone has a talk page, except those who haven't had theirs created yet, sorry :(

Wait, how do I get to my talk page?

Your user talk page is easily accessible from the top-right corner of the GUI on the desktop site. For mobile users, tap the menu icon in the top-left corner, then select "My user page" from the menu that pops up. Then tap the discussion tab at the top, and voila. You can also press Alt-Shift-N on your keyboard for easy talk page access.

Hm, that's nice, but what's all this?

The messages on your talk page are organized by a Table of Contents, more well known by its nickname, TOC. Simply clicking or tapping any section in the TOC will take you there.

AAAAAAAHHHHHHH!!!!! I got a reminder!

Reminders and warnings are given to users who break the rules. If you received a reminder for forgetting italics, the appropriate course of action would be to acknowledge that you forgot italics and say you're going to try to remember to italicize now.

Step Two: Check the recent changes often

What's that?

The recent changes is a page where the most recent changes are logged. It's easily accessible in the sidebar on desktop, and can be found in the menu button on mobile. It's pretty easy to use. I personally spend my entire life most of my time on the recent changes just in case any talk page contributions are made.

Step Three: Create your userpage

You already know how to access your userpage (detailed in Step One, subsection two), so it should be easy to create your userpage. Just put anything you want on there except libel of my guide and excessive YouTube videos. Basically just read over MarioWiki:Userspace, as that explains everything better than I could ever hope to.

Step Four: Contribute to discussions often

Discussions are easy to contribute to. Just add a relevant comment to a talk page and you're set. Comments not related to improving the article, known as forum talk, should go on the wiki's forum. The Bull's-Eye Bill talk is a shining example of what not to do on a talk page, as a majority of the discussion was just people endlessly repeating their opinions, myself included. It, however, is a great example of the buildup to a talk page proposal, which I will not be covering here.

Step Five: Contribute to mainspace often

It kinda goes without saying, really.

Step Six: Rejoice, for you have become an amazing user

I hope this guide is a wonderful help to whoever reads it. TheDarkStar MLBISBJJDarkStar.png
