If Toadsworth was in Animal Crossing...[edit]

What would his favorite furniture series be? Icon showing how many lives Mario has left. From Super Mario 64 DS. It's me, Mario! (Talk / Stalk) 01:43, June 17, 2024 (EDT)

Definitely the Rococo Series from New Leaf. Sadly, it was discontinued in New Horizons. If I remember correctly, his bedroom in PiT looked like the Antique Series, so likely that one if he's playing the most recent game. I think he's had enough of going on island vacations, though.

Rococo series is one of my favorite styles (it also felt special since there's limited ways of obtaining it barring the candlestick), a shame it wasn't in New Horizons (although Elegant Series seems like a successor). Antique is very Toadsworth core though, and I think he has a lot of exposure to like regal and princess-themed things from taking care of Peach for so long, so he'd probably take a liking to furniture series from there.

Re: TTYD character sprites[edit]

I do have the sprites, but TTYD has each character split up into separate parts. I have a way to render and play the animations, but they're not in native resolution and slightly darkened. The best way would seem to be exporting the sprites, then manually assembling them based on the positions of the rendered model -- but this is still not 1:1 perfect. I've been looking into ways to improve it, but I don't have too much experience with sprite assembly compared to some other users.

I appreciate your response. Hopefully someone with some more experience will get to working on that eventually. Sprite of Toadsworth Dr. Baskerville Paper Mario Book- MLPJ.png 02:21, July 1, 2024 (EDT)

Zelda removal redux[edit]

I'm creating this section to discuss my revised proposal for removing certain pages related to the Zelda franchise. If I asked you to share your thoughts, please do so below. Sprite of Toadsworth Dr. Baskerville Paper Mario Book- MLPJ.png 17:43, July 1, 2024 (EDT)

Proposal looks good! While I may still oppose it, the new version is much more manageable and addresses the fundamental flaws in the original argument. However, I will ask one question: what do you make of the four Nintendo Land minigames that we afford articles (which are used in the coverage policy as an example of Mario-based subjects from guest appearances getting their own articles)?

Thank you for the comments! When it comes to the minigames, I would have no objection to them because they feature content originating from / featured in the Mario series. The only thing similar to that on my list of Zelda pages is Yoshi doll, which I think is too insignificant to even have a page by itself anyway. It's also never been featured in a Mario game. See my points about Animal Crossing furniture. Sprite of Toadsworth Dr. Baskerville Paper Mario Book- MLPJ.png 20:50, July 1, 2024 (EDT)
But Nintendo Land isn't a Mario game, so those minigame articles are about Mario-inspired subjects that have never been in a Mario game, like the Zelda articles. The thing separating it from Animal Crossing furniture is that Link's Awakening and Nintendo Land are both classified as guest appearances, which no Animal Crossing game is. Hewer (talk · contributions · edit count) 07:09, July 2, 2024 (EDT)
Perhaps my point wasn't clear. Nintendo Land is absolutely a guest appearance because entities from the Mario series appear in it. Luigi's Ghost Mansion, for example, features Mii costumes of Mario, Luigi, and Wario, Mario characters, running throughout Luigi's Mansion, a Mario series setting, fighting Mario enemies like Gold Ghost. All of these things have an appearance in Mario games. When you look at something like Bombite, it has no appearance in any Mario games; therefore, even though it is visually similar to a Bob-Omb, I cannot see how that can be considered a cameo or a guest appearance. My point is that these Zelda pages have no appearance in anything in the Mario series. Aside from being inspired by Piranha Plants, Manhandla has no connection to the Mario universe. How can something that isn't even from the Mario universe by a cameo or a guest appearance on behalf of the Mario franchise in a different franchise? When we're saying "guest appearance", we're talking about something from Mario appearing in another game. Bombite, Manhandla, etc. are not from the Mario series, so how can they be a guest appearance? Sprite of Toadsworth Dr. Baskerville Paper Mario Book- MLPJ.png 13:48, July 2, 2024 (EDT)
Fair enough. Hewer (talk · contributions · edit count) 16:08, July 2, 2024 (EDT)
