Hi, I'm MarioComix. Please use the Talk Page below to ask me questions, I guess.


For the favorite character part of your page you should probably make the character links. What you do is ad ''' in the beginning, then the character name, then this, ''' And this is what it will turn out like this: Dry Bones

Petey Piranha's Gender[edit]

Thats your opinion! She's a girl it is totally obivious User:FireFlower

Well,your opinion is that Petey is a girl, and my opinion is that Petey is a boy. However, my opinion is the majority and is used throughout the article on Petey. MarioComix 01:46, 31 July 2011 (EDT)


Could you give me the link where Birdo appears as a boss in Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games? please ^_^ Artwork of Birdo from Itadaki Street DS.BirdobeautiesBirdo

I actually haven't seen it for myself, I just saw it on the Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games page, and since it was already out, I assumed someone played it and added the info. MarioComix 19:34, 16 November 2011 (EST)

Mario Kart Wii Trivia (Character Select Animations)[edit]

Hey there, just noticed you added in this tidbit on this edit saying that some of the returning characters' animations from Mario Kart: Double Dash!! had some "noticeable changes". Care to explain that further to me by any chance? Thanks. --M. C. - "Mario Gals" Fan! User Page | Talk Page 20:42, 30 December 2011 (EST)

Well Waluigi does something that looks quite different if compared to the original, King Boo's tongue is no longer sticking out before you select him, and Birdo's bow is larger in this game. MarioComix 03:02, 31 December 2011 (EST)

My Talk Page[edit]

I left a comment on my talk page, sorry if it takes forever to apply to because it's so big and takes forever to read (I had to write it!) and has a bit of unneeded information (but since it's my talk page I add enough information to satisfy me since it's not an article and there can't be unneccesary information and nobody can delete it... and my page doesn't have many users visiting it so I try to make it bigger. It's way bigger than some of the articles I've read... just needs a picture and it can be its OWN article!) but I would appreciate it if you read through it before posting a comment, as I don't want to answer any of your questions that are already answered in my comment. Thanks for posting on my talk page! Come back anytime, and let's hope the problem gets solved soon! Ciao!M&L Just because you're in red doesn't mean you're strong. Have at you! 21:07, 31 January 2012 (EST)
Once again, I've made a new post. This one is much shorter than the first one, I can't believe how fast it took you to read it and respond. Please talk on my talk page for other reasons besides this issue, as that's basically all people talk to me about: what I'm doing wrong and need to fix or how I'm wrong. I would appreciate this but still remember the current issue needs to be focused on and should be solved first. Thanks again! Ciao!<--(Dimentio reference!)M&L Just because you're in red doesn't mean you're strong. Have at you! 21:26, 31 January 2012 (EST)
Like before, just a basic check-in. I added a comment, and BTW (that stand for "by the way", right?) you never answered my shipping a chandeleir question (which I mentioned in the comment). Thanks! Like my Dimentio reference?M&L Just because you're in red doesn't mean you're strong. Have at you! 21:41, 31 January 2012 (EST)
yes, BTW means "by the way". and I'm not sure if you can ship a chandelier, it was just used as an example. what later came to mind were wine glasses, but I didn't bother to change it. and nice Dimentio reference :P MarioComix 23:43, 31 January 2012 (EST)
Thanks! And in case you didn't notice, my sig contains a Mr.L reference (the whole thing, not just the last sentence) and ignore a part of my latest comment, I wrote it before I commented here, so I didn't know you answered it. And thanks for commenting about me being more mature than other users, even though I know it's true. I think the whole issue has died down, so we can make a new discussion under a new header on my talk page (although we don't really need to, as we've basically started a new one already under the first header) and forget about the issue. See you around!M&L Just because you're in red doesn't mean you're strong. Have at you! 18:46, 1 February 2012 (EST)

Hello, MarioComix. Good job on your recent uploads, but when uploading files, keep in mind that you must correctly use the {{aboutfile}} template. What you were doing looks like this, and it is an inconvenience for other users to fix up the template. It is simple to learn how to format it correctly. The pre-loaded coding is shown below.

|1=Subject of the image
|2=Where you found the image
|4=Describe edits, if any
|5=Other versions (use file link)

Just replace the necessary parts with that corresponding information, and remove the entire line of the variable(s) you don't use. If you do not wish to use the template at all, then it is acceptable to simply remove it before you upload the file. Please consider the above information before uploading more files. If you continue using {{aboutfile}} incorrectly, then a warning will be issued. Thank you for reading, and keep contributing.

Oh okay, thanks, I hadn't realized before. I'll make sure I remember that the next time I upload a file. MarioComix 17:20, 4 July 2012 (EDT)


Mario Party 9 is not the first Mario Party game to have her in it since her debut Mario Party 5 is since it was released 3 days after Mario Kart Double Dash. Raven Effect (talk)

Thanks for the tip[edit]

First off, thanks for reading my column! I didn't think it was too popular, but maybe it's a bit more popular than I imagined!

Secondly, thanks for the new idea for Game & Watch. I can't do much with it now, since the paper is already out, but I appreciate the thought. To be honest, I'm not too familiar with Mr. Game & Watch, so it's good to learn new tricks to use.

RE:Confusion about Dry Bowser's page[edit]

The Upcoming template is only used for games itself, whilst the newsubject template caters for characters, items and whatnot that will appear in said game. DLC is a fiddly subject, however roughly the same rules apply. As the packs are generally the new "games" they get the upcoming template, whilst the characters and whatnot get the newsubject template, as it can refer to the DLC. Yoshi876 (talk)

Okay, thanks. The edit summary was a bit vague and constricted, so this cleared it up for me. MarioComix (talk) 06:37, 2 September 2014 (EDT)

This will sound stupid[edit]

You edited captain Toad earlier very minor edit and it says you added 3 characters. Buuuut... I counted you added 2 "as". How is this possible? Explain to this noob here. Or are you hacking??? Lol jk.Toadbrigade5 (talk) 19:39, 16 October 2014 (EDT)

I guess it's the space? Maybe? Lol I'm not totally sure if spaces count as characters, but that's what it would have to be. MarioComix (talk) 19:38, 16 October 2014 (EDT)
Ah that makes sense. Sorry for being overly critical, I was just being curious.Toadbrigade5 (talk) 19:39, 16 October 2014 (EDT)
Don't worry about it, I can understand how this can be confusing though. MarioComix (talk) 02:51, 17 October 2014 (EDT)

Hi, will you be my friend? I'm also debating about a controversial proposal.[edit]

I notice you are very kind to other users and didn't mind it when I asked stupid questions so, friend request? and also more importantly...

Hi, I'd like to make a proposal regarding the abundance of WarioWare microgames. I feel that they are all perfect articles, but short and that they clog the special random at times. I'm pretty sure no one who looks up Paratroopa means the microgame and not the enemy. My idea is that we merge all microgames with the "List of Microgames in ____ wario ware game". Then we could have a few stronger pages and not an abundaces of stubs. But I feel that since this is a huge job many users may oppose it so I want to see what other people think first. Toadbrigade5 (talk) 22:53, 18 October 2014 (EDT)

Hi. Sure, I'd friend you if I knew how to do that, lol. For the Microgames, right now I think that it's fine because it follows the same format as Mario Party minigames, although the amount of content in either one differs for sure. MarioComix (talk) 01:11, 19 October 2014 (EDT)
I'm pretty sure it has something to do with userboxes, which I haven't started lol. But do you suggest me still making the proposal? I think mario party games are okay since they are a lot longer.Toadbrigade5 (talk) 12:23, 19 October 2014 (EDT)
Personally, I think the microgame pages are fine as they are, but if you want to make the proposal you can see how much support there is and you can also see why some users might want to keep it as it is, to change your mind. Or, you might be able to change their mind. MarioComix (talk) 16:14, 19 October 2014 (EDT)

Bad(?) information about Luma[edit]

Hello. Was my information about the quote of the Luma unnecessary or unimportant or anything? I would just like to know. The True Mario with my girlfriend Samus. 22:26, 27 October 2014 (EDT)

Sorry for not linking my user page. Let me retry. The True Mario with my girlfriend Samus. 22:27, 27 October 2014 (EDT)

Hello. It's just that the reusage of a quote isn't that significant, since the quote in question isn't signature to a different character or anything (like if a Luma went all "I HAVE CHORTLES" then it's a clear reference to Fawful) and it's more of a generic, stock quote. MarioComix (talk) 22:55, 27 October 2014 (EDT)


So yeah, You recently undid an edit that said there will be two stories. Well as far as we know a video showed three episodes, first one is Captain Toad Playable, second is Toadette only, we didn't see the third. Each one was a book with 18 levels and a few video clips. We don't know if they are altenernate storylines or one connected. Toadbrigade5 (talk) 20:59, 7 November 2014 (EST)

Really? Anyway, the main point of my edit was to get someone to add a link to the reference (in this case, the video) that showed separate stories, just to confirm it. MarioComix (talk) 21:05, 7 November 2014 (EST)
We already have that ref, it is the one next to draggadon.
Okay, if you want to copy that reference and paste it next to the story part you can do that. MarioComix (talk) 14:46, 8 November 2014 (EST)

Sorry to bother, but do you happen to remember your source for this? Hello, I'm Time Turner.

If you, the person who added it, don't have a source, it should probably be removed. Hello, I'm Time Turner.

RE:Regarding "Europe and Oceania"[edit]

"Oceania" is now being used to refer to the Australian/New Zealand area, since the two are usually grouped into the same region according to Nintendo anyway. PAL is being used if release dates of games are the same between Europe and Oceania, but there's no problem with them being classified separately. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 10:54, 24 July 2017 (EDT)

Mario Tennis Aces Character Sheet Redesign[edit]

So, you suggested we find a way to include more information on the Mario Tennis Aces Characters. I did a bit of research into tables and think I can pull it off. What kind of information do you think we should include?

I'm thinking everything you listed is enough, but maybe we can find specific stats beyond playing type later on? If so, should I add that to the table or leave it for now? And is there anything else we should put there? Artwork of the Toad Brigade from Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker.Toad and his brigade!Toadette model CTTT.png 13:47, 17 June 2018 (EDT)

All we really know for now are playing type, emblem, primary and secondary colour (for when two players online play the same character, for example), names of Trick and Special Shots, and unlocking criteria. I wonder if eventually individual stats can be datamined, like with the Mario Kart series. MarioComix (talk) 03:11, 18 June 2018 (EDT)

Mario Tennis Aces Characters[edit]

Hello. You removed the changes to the character chart about Dry Bones, Dry Bowser, Shy Guy, Kamek and Boom Boom. Now, I know they're currently not playable, but since they're in the coding, we can't just outright say that they're not playable, especially since the game is only a day old. How should we mention this? We kinda have to. TheIceCream (talk) 20:04, 22 June 2018 (EDT)

The main issue I have with it is that as a wiki we should try to be as complete as possible about the information. Keeping the question marks makes the page look "tentative" and like we're missing information (after all, the main purpose of the question marks is for pre-release coverage to separate confirmed characters and unconfirmed characters). So it's my opinion to keep it based on current playability of characters. Because if you pick up the game right now, these are the only playable characters (granted, the post-launch characters are checked off but they do have the footnote mentioning their post-launch status). And for example on the Mario Kart page, when characters were added by DLC they were changed from X to check, so that is fine. I know they're in the coding but other games have had similar "in the coding" situations (think the Forbidden 7 of Brawl) and the characters are much more complete, but imagine a situation wherein Sprixie Princess's name was found in the datamine but had no other reference to her in the game (even excluding her emblem in an advertisement). One would normally assume her to be a cut character left in the code. So for now, I do stand by my opinion (specifically that the question mark is used for pre-release coverage, and there's been no official hints from Nintendo towards them becoming playable). MarioComix (talk) 00:24, 23 June 2018 (EDT)
Imma chime in here and say that using question marks is perfectly fine. All that means is we don't have all the information yet, in this case, we just know the character exists in the game, but we don't know their role yet. Over time, their role can be fleshed out, but this is why the question mark image exists in the first place. In the case of Brawl, the characters are in the coding, but they have no role. This is a different case, but one that could also turn out like Brawl's. Should that happen, and no word is heard about these characters at all once DLC stops, the question marks can be removed then and the datamined characters can be mentioned elsewhere. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 00:38, 23 June 2018 (EDT)
Well, I would like the page to stand more definitively since the game is released, but if you do have a high preference to keep the question marks, go ahead and change it. I won't change it back as I understand your reasoning and it is a reasonable choice. MarioComix (talk) 02:00, 23 June 2018 (EDT)
I doubt though that they will be DLC characters. Most DLC Character's code is added in a later update (e.g. with Mario Kart 8). They might be more tournament characters, like Koopa and Blooper, although this is only speculation. TheIceCream (talk) 05:09, 23 June 2018 (EDT)

Yoshi Circuit Trivia[edit]

Hello. On the page for GCN Yoshi Circuit, I mentioned that SNES Rainbow Road has returned in another game outside of the original and Super Circuit. The SNES tracks returning in GBA is expected and isn't really counted as a "retro track" since the SNES tracks have appeared in other games too. Since SNES Rainbow Road has appeared in 2 other games outside of SNES and GBA, why wouldn't it be mentioned along Yoshi Circuit and Baby Park? TheIceCream (talk) 16:45, 5 July 2018 (EDT)

Well, SNES Rainbow Road has appeared in SMK, MK:SC, MK7, and MK8. However, it still needs to be mentioned that the SNES tracks all appeared in at least 2 games. So to compare with something like N64 Frappe Snowland, we cannot say that being in 2 games warrants trivia. The main point for Yoshi Circuit and Baby Park is that they are the only two non-SNES courses that have reappeared multiple times. Every SNES course has reappeared at least once. While it's true that SNES Rainbow Road then follows similar criteria with YC and BP, by appearing in 4 games it has its own trivia point over on its own page. MarioComix (talk) 19:31, 5 July 2018 (EDT)


Since I'm the one who moved them, I'll go ahead and answer. We count all official renders as artwork. Now that in-game models are good enough to be used for artwork may make things a little difficult, but if Nintendo rendered it, then it's artwork. I'm assuming these came from some supplemental materials or the game's site, as there's basically no way any third-party person could have rendered the DLC characters accurate to how their specific models appear in that game. Now, in-game models ripped from gameplay screenshots or ones rendered using software akin to what the Models Resource does, those would count as game 3D Renders, provided, again, that they are not official renders or croppings executed by Nintendo themselves. Make sense? Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 18:11, 18 September 2018 (EDT)

Thanks for the clarification, you make good points. I had previously been told contrary (that these renders count as in-game models), but I'll keep this in mind. MarioComix (talk) 23:16, 18 September 2018 (EDT)
OK, just to be perfectly clear, where do they come from? Are they marketing materials, or are they, say, character select portraits? Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 01:13, 25 September 2018 (EDT)
Well, the fact that they've been uploaded before some of the characters were even released makes me think they're marketing materials, and that they're all uniform in the direction they're facing makes it look less like a screenshot rip. (I wasn't the one to upload any of them, so I don't actually know their sources.) MarioComix (talk) 01:17, 25 September 2018 (EDT)


Haven't you heard of Mario kart 64 (slot machine), which we cover on this site and did you look at the source for the Banpresto game that our inactive YouTube account covers? Lord Falafel (talk) 09:54, June 21, 2019 (EDT)

Okay, it's fine to add these to the page. However, what's not fine is simply changing the numbering of the arcade games without listing the 1st and 2nd arcade games on the page, or else reading simply what's on the page would not make sense. (People reading that would also wonder what the 1st and 2nd arcade games were.) If you don't have time to add the info straight away, you could at least add the {{construction}} template to say that info is incoming. MarioComix (talk) 21:25, June 21, 2019 (EDT)

King Boo and Red Boo Crowns[edit]

First off, I get they are not exact 100% exact but similar doesn't mean they are going to be 100% accurate but they still have a very close appearance and it's another non-King Boo wearing a crown and as the administrator Alex95 says, it's worth putting it in the trivia even if you don't agree with it. If you want to know what similar actually means it's "resembling without being identical". That sums up what similar and exact means. Princess Peach also had only red jewelry on her crown in some media so you are going to say that her crown isn't similar to what she has currently? --Gamermakerguy (talk) 00:18, October 25, 2019 (EDT)

Sorry I didn't explain myself. I feel that this type of information is best kept on the Red Boo page as it has to do directly with Red Boos rather than King Boo. Secondly, since the crown isn't identical, it means that saying this references King Boo in some way is a slight stretch of interpretation. If it were identical, yes, this should be added as it appears to be an intentional nod. But when it's not, then it opens the door for other insignificant remarks to clutter the wiki. (Also, as a note, if the crowns were identical, it would be better to add that information into a section in the history rather than trivia.) Finally, I stumbled upon the King Boo (Super Mario Sunshine) page and found that his crown is actually much more similar to the crowned Red Boos, if you want to add the remark there instead. MarioComix (talk) 01:47, October 25, 2019 (EDT)
Ah very good points, that makes more sense. I'm very sorry if I seemed rather rude to you by edit warring honestly I took it too far there, totally wasn't my intention to be mat at you than it seems, I wanted to make it relevant. But you made excellent options there that I certainly give you credit for, I shall add it in. I also see what you mean about the cluttering that makes sense --Gamermakerguy (talk) 02:11, October 25, 2019 (EDT)

Yeah, in any case, I'll see when I can get around to that. MarioComix (talk) 19:26, January 17, 2020 (EST)


The file, formerly titled File:LuigiCirCuitWii.png is now File:MKW Luigi Circuit Screenshot.png. It is used on your main page. Have a good one. Sprite of a coin from the Atari 2600 port of Mario Bros. Wynn Liaw - 02:16, Jan 21, 2020

This edit[edit]

I'm curious, why did you put the artwork back into the SMRPG statbox? Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 14:44, April 29, 2020 (EDT)

That's very weird, because the only thing I wanted to edit was the main infobox image, and adding the 215px. I guess somehow a lot of other edits got reverted, there's also the weird formatting of the main template for Wiggler (Super Mario Sunshine) that I had fixed in an earlier edit, and the same with the Super Mario Maker section where I reworded it in an earlier edit. MarioComix (talk) 15:33, April 29, 2020 (EDT)
That's happened to me before XD. Must have been viewing an old revision and forgot you were. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 14:21, May 1, 2020 (EDT)
Strange, because it usually warns me with like "this is an old revision" or I try to click the "edit" tab, but it's an old revision so it doesn't appear. Oh well lol. MarioComix (talk) 18:07, May 1, 2020 (EDT)
Probably just overlooked it XD. Or it could have even been a database glitch. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 18:22, May 1, 2020 (EDT)

"Support for MKT has slowed"[edit]

While I agree with your reasoning for removing any easily out-dated content (we have a policy for that), support for Mario Kart Tour is still going strong, getting updates every month or so. It's not entirely out of the realm of possibility that karts that only appeared in the beta so far can still make their way into the "final" game. Also, we should still note that the pieces were only seen in the beta so far. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 18:07, May 9, 2020 (EDT)

Well, my biggest point is that until the Valentine's Tour, every tour gave us two Tour-Exclusive High-End characters. From there, the Valentine's, Baby Rosalina, Yoshi, and Flower Tours gave us only one each. The Hammer Bro Tour gave us none. The Vancouver, Mario Bros., and Trick Tours gave us two each also, but it's not nearly as consistent as it was before. It's notable since the first 4 months (September 25 - January 28, New York to Ice Tour) gave us two consistently, but the next 4 months or so (January 29 - May 19, Valentine's to Flower Tour) only gave us two for three out of eight tours.
  • Next, looking at courses, from New York until Ice Tour, every tour except Winter introduced a new course not in Mario Kart 7, thereby requiring them to create new assets for some of these courses, including the real-life courses, SNES Ghost Valley 1, N64 Frappe Snowland, and SNES Vanilla Lake 1. However, for the latter eight tours, the Hammer Bro Tour was the last tour to introduce a course using new assets (SNES Donut Plains 1); GBA Bowser's Castle 2 uses GBA Bowser's Castle 1 assets, and RMX Choco Island 1 uses SNES Choco Island 2 assets. It seems that in the future, they're looking to use existing assets to create new courses, the RMX courses, as opposed to creating new assets for new courses. I know this is speculation, but there has been a noticeable slowdown in the creation of original courses - the Yoshi and Trick Tours don't even introduce a new course (not counting T, R, or R/T variants).
  • Since the Valentine's Tour, the only wholly new characters to be introduced are Hammer Bro (and relatives) and Monty Mole - the rest are variants. Before that, excluding characters who were present in the beta, the following characters were added: Peachette, Pauline, Lakitu, Bowser Jr., Diddy Kong, and Birdo, and only two of them had assets that could be borrowed from Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.
  • Looking at karts, from New York to Ice, only the New Year's Tour doesn't introduce two new karts as the High-End Spotlights. The Valentine's, Baby Rosalina, and Hammer Bro Tours don't introduce two Spotlight karts; in fact, only the Vancouver, Trick, and Flower Tours introduce two new karts as the High-End Spotlights. Looking at total karts introduced, from New York to Ice, each tour adds on average 5.8 karts, while from Valentine's to Flower, it's only 2.4 karts. If we remove karts that were in Mario Kart 7 or Mario Kart 8, then the averages change to 4.7 karts and 2.3 karts.
  • For gliders, it's not as pronounced, but from New York to Ice, every week had a new Spotlight glider, whereas after that only the Vancouver Tour introduced two new Spotlight gliders (some weeks repeat old gliders, or don't have any spotlight gliders). As well, from New York to Ice, each tour adds on average 3.7 gliders, while from Valentine's to Flower, it's only 2.1 gliders.
Taken together, the Valentine's Tour marks when support for Mario Kart Tour began to slow, notably due to it adding only one new spotlight character variant. Once the Flower and Jungle Tours are finished, we'll be able to gauge further if the evidence holds up, as it would definitively mark data for the 1st four months (New York to Ice) and the next four months (Valentine's to Jungle).

And about the Bolt Buggy, the info of it appearing in the beta is still on its own page, but that info is irrelevant to Tiny Tug and Cact-X. It's also why on the pages of the latter two, I worded it as not appearing in Mario Kart Tour in "any capacity", since they weren't in the beta. In contrast, the Bolt Buggy has appeared in Mario Kart Tour, in the capacity of being in the game's files and from the closed beta. MarioComix (talk) 00:47, May 10, 2020 (EDT)
Coding also indicates that at least the Baby Rosalina and Hammer Bro. tours were "emergency" tours, implying the developers are struggling due to, y'know, the massive ongoing pandemic. 00:59, May 10, 2020 (EDT)
Alright, I see where you're coming from. Didn't know Tiny Tug and Cact-X weren't in the beta, I wasn't able to play it myself to find out. I wouldn't exactly call development "slowed" yet (I'm sure it will once people stop playing it), but the pandemic is likely effecting how things are working at the moment. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 01:04, May 10, 2020 (EDT)
That's fascinating for the Baby Rosalina and Hammer Bro Tours, although the former did still introduce London Loop 2, and the latter did technically bring back 2 courses and a whole new character (well, four characters by technicality). Although the Hammer Bro Tour didn't introduce any new karts or gliders, so that could make sense. Besides, it was still the Valentine's Tour that gave the first hint at the eventual slowdown.

Hi, MarioComix! How are you doing? Are you happy that Funky Kong is finally in Mario Kart Tour? Artwork of Yoshi in Mario Party 10 (also used in Super Mario Party and Mario Kart Tour)YoshiFan08(Talk)(Edits)Green Yoshi May 29, 2019, 17:54 (EST)

Hello there! I'm glad that not only have all Mario Kart Wii characters returned in Mario Kart Tour, but I actually predicted he could become a High-End character. It's also great that Dixie Kong debuted along with him, I'd wanted her in Mario Kart since before Mario Kart 8! MarioComix (talk) 19:50, May 29, 2020 (EDT)

RE: About the 3D All-Stars Reused Artwork[edit]

I'll at least restore the transparent Bee Mario, but I really don't think a slight glow around the character is enough to justify another version of the same artwork. Lucina costume pose in Super Mario Maker Mario JC 00:36, September 9, 2020 (EDT)

Hacks on 3D All Stars[edit]

Out of those instances like Sega using fan-made tools to create a game and Industrial Park being used to make/import assets over to Battle for Bikini Bottom Rehydrated, the gamecube game on that port for the All-Stars had it's aspect display hacked for the switch to make Sunshine run on 16:9 and with upscaled texture packs.--Crazy Muzzarino (talk) 04:29, September 10, 2020 (EDT)

We don't cover hacks on this Wiki. Unless there's evidence that the 3D All-Stars version of Sunshine is explicitly using the hacked build, it's nothing official so we won't cover it. MarioComix (talk) 15:29, September 10, 2020 (EDT)

POW Block sprite in Super Mario Bros. 35[edit]

I already talked to Elijah Guy about this, but I discovered a decisive evidence about it. In Super Mario Maker, POW Block's outline is colored white, whereas in SMB35 it is cyan and black. This makes it clear that POW Block's sprite in the game is actually coming from Mario Bros., as can be seen here. Raffina Higashikata (talk) 01:49, October 6, 2020 (EDT)

Leap Shots[edit]

Hey here’s a a screenshot of the leap shot description: [[3]] I assume that the confusion is coming from the actual Jump Shot having a somewhat similar description, but it is a move that is performed by double tapping a button for any of the others shots, rather than by pressing R or ZR.

Also the other part you’ve reverted refers to the amiibo, they can only be played with as a doubles partner but never actually played against, hence the removal of the word. - Ninelevendo's Sig Image

Oh, I see now. You're right. I'd forgotten that lunges were renamed to leap shots. I'll go change that back. MarioComix (talk) 16:24, March 24, 2021 (EDT)

Calico Parafoil[edit]

It was released during the Cat Tour which coincided with Bowser's Fury's release where calico cats play important roles; I would say that's a reference. Lucina costume pose in Super Mario Maker Mario JC 01:16, April 3, 2021 (EDT)

Well, the Japanese names didn't really correlate in any way. Design-wise, while the Parafoil's left ear slightly matches the Calico cat parent's left ear (due to the pink inside and white outline), there are no other notable congruencies; both tricolored calicos (the parent and the Kitten) have a black right ear, but the Parafoil's is not; their tail also has a black tip with the orange band before it, while the Parafoil's has a white tip and no banding colouration around the tail. In my opinion, we should treat it as two designs coming together, but not because one is referencing the other. Calico cats are a popular design for cats, after all, so it's not surprising that the Cat Tour would introduce a calico cat-design glider. Unless the developers outright state that the Parafoil was a reference to Bowser's Fury, or they allude to the kittens in Bowser's Fury when referring to the Parafoil, we should treat it as just two things referencing calico cats.
Kind of a tangent, but it would be like saying Toadette's Japanese name is based on Vanna T.'s name. It might have been a reference, but until stated outright, we would just treat it as their name coming from the same origin (kinopio + -ko). I acknowledge that timing is relevant to the calico case, but, again, calico cats are popular throughout media as well. MarioComix (talk) 03:42, April 3, 2021 (EDT)

About Animal Crossing items[edit]

I'm not sure why you'd switch "Tulip surprise box" to "tulip surprise box" in this edit. Although most of Nookipedia's item pages are title cased for reasons, items in New Horizons in-game has the first word of an item capitalized, as seen here. -- PanchamBro (talkcontributions) 02:15, May 2, 2021 (EDT)

They're capitalised because they're the first letter of a page or entry, kind of like some of our pages (e.g. List of Toadette profiles and statistics). When the villagers refer to items in conversation, "tulip" is not a proper noun so it doesn't get capitalised. Likewise, "tulip" is in the middle of a paragraph so it's not going to be capitalised. MarioComix (talk) 04:33, May 2, 2021 (EDT)

MK7 Wiggler's English Gender[edit]

Actually, according to here, the Wiggler racer should be a "he" in Mario Kart 7. That said, I wouldn't be opposed to using foreign languages to inform us of a character's gender, so long as there are no other contradictions at least. LinkTheLefty (talk) 13:16, May 7, 2022 (EDT)

Well, if the gender is being assumed purely by name alone, "Hana-chan" is rather feminine but isn't, say, a female name being used directly on a character. It's probably referring to the flower on Wiggler's head, and the "-chan" is something that could be used on small animals or babies, of which Wiggler is like a baby of a butterfly (and then Flutter is the butterfly, but still an animal). Now, Wiggler has been seeming more female now that more evidence has piled up, but unless it's confirmed we shouldn't necessarily jump the gun on it. MarioComix (talk) 02:02, May 8, 2022 (EDT)
