Skin[edit]

Skins for the wiki itself. The only way I can see it being changed is if you create your own personal monobook. I'm not sure how to make one though, try asking Twentytwofiftyseven (talk) or Porplemontage (talk). --FREAK ~Game GameBros.png Freak~ OUT!

OK. BNK [E|T|C] 01:23, 6 August 2010 (UTC)

Fourth wall[edit]

Yes, that's how you write fourth wall, but I think if there's like two words, we use capitals for the first letters (Fourth Wall). Like Special Moves - capital 'S' and 'M'. Please leave it as it is. Lucina pose SMM.png Mario JC

I can't find them, could you just delete them all except for the one I have on my page? BNK [E|T|C] 10:43, 26 June 2011 (EDT)

Recent edits[edit]

Hi. We don't update the infobox image until the game in question has actually been released. Yoshi876 (talk)

Understood, I figured I might have been doing something wrong since that info hadn't been updated yet. BNK [E|T|C] 00:56, 29 August 2014 (EDT)

Special Moves[edit]

This should explain why (and here is the revision of the specified section for reference).

I see, thanks. BNK [E|T|C] 14:19, 22 July 2016 (EDT)

lowercase redirect[edit]

Just a reminder don't create lowercase redirect for article pages (read the bold link). Thank you. Alien Bunny Sprite.pngL151Onnanoko transparent WC98.png

Thanks, I wasn't aware. BNK [E|T|C] 14:31, 25 July 2016 (EDT)

Sgt Frog[edit]

Let's see, Japanese series, goofy-looking characters, colors and rank match up...there's only a 3% chance that's unintentional. Stop removing valid information. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 01:37, 17 October 2017 (EDT)

Who cares if they look similar and you have this arbitrary hunch that it's a reference. There's nothing to confirm that Sgt. Frog is referenced at all beyond what you're imagining. Unless you have proof beyond speculation, I'll keep removing that trivia. Blue Ninjakoopa (talk) 01:39, 17 October 2017 (EDT)
If it was just two characters, that'd be one thing. But there's three there is no way that's unintentional. Besides, given it's a very-famous Japanese manga and anime, it'd be like an American work giving a passing nod to Phineas & Ferb. The point is, it is a clear reference. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 01:42, 17 October 2017 (EDT)
Based on what? I could ramble to you about how Tubba Blubba and the entire second half of Chapter 3 in Paper Mario is a reference to Jack and the Giant Beanstalk but I can't validate it. If I did what you're doing, I'd write "Tubba Blubba is giant like the Giant from Jack and the Giant Beanstalk, and Yakkey is like the Golden Goose", which is something I can't substantiate with anything besides my imagination. Perhaps I'd be more convinced that those 3 Bowser minions are a direct reference to those Sgt. Frog characters if you showed me similarities between their personalities, but appearances alone won't cut it. Blue Ninjakoopa (talk) 01:53, 17 October 2017 (EDT)
How is that similar to Jack and the Beanstalk? Also, that's British, ergo is less likely a reference than a Japanese thing referencing another Japanese thing. Either way, the Elite Trio don't really have distinct personalities; being a group of minions loosely based off of characters from an anime series is really all they have going for them. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 02:09, 17 October 2017 (EDT)
Like I implied, it's a stretch, but Jack and the Giant Beanstalk was about a boy who ventured into a giant's castle and stumbled on something valuable that would be of immense help to him. In that case it was the goose that laid golden eggs. In Paper Mario, it was Yakkey, who unlocked the door to the Windy Mill to allow Mario to fight Tubba Blubba's Heart, which eventually led to the freedom of several Gulch and Mansion Boos. The freedom of Boos parallels the riches Jack amassed when he cashed in the golden eggs (or perhaps Mario when he got the Star Spirit). Another parallel is between the giant and Tubba Blubba; both were bumbling and slept a lot, and both ominously talked about how they "smell" what they enjoyed eating. They also chased the protagonist (which makes Mario kind of parallel Jack). Again, stretch, but a connection can be made. The only problem is it's not backed by any official statements. I'll admit the Sgt. Frog reference holds more water, especially considering the likelihood that Japanese game developers watch Japanese animation, but you just admitted that their connection is loose, which is why I'm asking for more info. I guess since it's Trivia it's fine, but the Mario Wiki generally doesn't allow speculation (at least not in my experience) unless it's as clear cut as Mario Party Minigame names (Oil Crisis, Mario Speedwagons, and Track & Yield to name a few). Blue Ninjakoopa (talk) 02:26, 17 October 2017 (EDT)
Imma throw out that only really obvious references should be mentioned in trivia sections; there are only so many stories to tell, and coincidences are bound to happen. And saying that it's likely that it's a reference because they're both Japanese is dumb, least of all because there are many, many, many Japanese works out there.

Idle Chatter[edit]

Hey, how ya doing? Just wanted to stop by and say hello. It's been a long day. Lcrossmk8 (talk) 21:01, 28 October 2017 (EDT)

Kuchuka[edit]

While it is true that we do not usually bring up spelling in articles, it is far from obvious that it is pronounced in such an ungrammatical way; most people would assume it rhymes with Bazuka. And of course, there's the fact that "Kachucker" isn't a word, so people wouldn't immediately get the pun; conversely, "Kuchooka" sounds vaguely like an artillery onomatopoeia, so there's even more reason for people to incorrectly assume that's the intended pronunciation. The Japanese name is the only one that even hints at the pun, simply because the English spelling is so counter-intuitive. See? Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 23:42, 12 April 2018 (EDT)

There's no way to know what "most people would assume" in a case like this, and we can't go around making arbitrary exceptions, especially not ones based on something as weak as "most people assume." Perhaps we could mention its pronunciation in the first sentence within parentheses, but we'd also need to decide which other character names have unclear pronunciations and mention them there as well. Blue Ninjakoopa (talk) 18:28, 14 April 2018 (EDT)
Given that its pronunciation is outright ungrammatical relative to its spelling, that'd probably be for the best. The others seem to follow basic annunciation rules more concisely. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 18:32, 14 April 2018 (EDT)

Rogueport[edit]

There's absolutely no question that in the localized versions of TTYD, the Syndicate is based off of the Mafia., though I hear that in the Japanese version, they're based off of the Yakuza. Anyways, they are certainly based off of varying real-life crime syndicates, with the accents in the localized versions being a dead ringer for stereotypical "Mafia"-type characters. Also of note is that one of them asks Mario if he would consider joining, which is interesting given Mario's own Italian heritage and the rules of the real-life Mafia regarding that. Anyways, I don't see a problem with noting the general idea. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 01:42, 16 June 2018 (EDT)

Re:Would you happen to know...[edit]

Sorry, the Mario Party games are the subseries that I know the least about offhand. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 12:24, 4 March 2019 (EST)

S'all good. Blue Ninjakoopa (talk) 12:27, 4 March 2019 (EST)

Re: How Long...[edit]

Would you believe me if I told you that, despite knowing all the main memes from a rather young age, I didn't actually start watching them regularly until I got to college (and needed something to do when out of class, and no one would be bothered by the noise, and the internet was OK)? Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 21:23, April 13, 2019 (EDT)

Yeah, I'd believe that. College was where I discovered Fesh Pince (it was introduced to me by my suitemates, which was very unexpected but shows how diverse college can be). Do you have a favorite YouTube Poop, or a favorite creator? Blue Ninjakoopa (talk) 21:28, April 13, 2019 (EDT)
My favorite YTP would probably be Crustacean Resurrection Redemption or the Mashed Bandicoot ones (made by NPCarllson), but my favorite YTP creator is probably Jimmy Davis. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 21:40, April 13, 2019 (EDT)
I haven't seen those but I'll check them out. I recommend Deepercutt (a good way to get started with him is to watch the tennis match between him and Captpan, another good creator), Kroboproductions (especially "King Dedede inhales a negative Ion", but he's best known for Fesh Pince), DaThings1, and CS188. My favorite YTP is "Ganon Thinks Your Face will Burn Him." Blue Ninjakoopa (talk) 21:46, April 13, 2019 (EDT)
Try "the Decayer App" from Jimmy Davis, the other ones I mentioned are fairly long. I've seen the Dedede inhales one (along with several permutations of it) as well....there's also an extremely vulgar nonsensical speech from K. Rool in "King K. Rool Files a Complaint at Super Disney Land 3" by Geibuchan I can quote off the top of my head (and in fact did while unlocking him in Smash) Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 21:49, April 13, 2019 (EDT)
