Super Paper Mario Bestiary[edit]

I noticed that the numbering system is a little off. Be sure to fix it. Yoshissm-animated walk.gif Yoshi the SSM (talk) 16:52, 12 November 2016 (EST)

? Numbering System? Not sure what you mean.

Never mind. I see it.
Ultimate Mr L sig.png Ultimate Mr. L (Talk-Contribs-Stats) 18:56, 12 November 2016 (EST)
Bald Cleft to Bill Blaster have wrong numbers. They should be one less than what they are now. Yoshissm-animated walk.gif Yoshi the SSM (talk) 20:09, 12 November 2016 (EST)
Fixed. The bestiary's coming along great. I just added all enemies up to Francis, as well as some notes on Tippi's unavailability during Chapter 3.
Ultimate Mr L sig.png Ultimate Mr. L (Talk-Contribs-Stats) 20:10, 12 November 2016 (EST)

I see it now. At the Bill Blaster. I'll take care of it.
Ultimate Mr L sig.png Ultimate Mr. L (Talk-Contribs-Stats) 20:50, 12 November 2016 (EST)
I am not trying to sound mean here, but it was at the Bald Clef. It was labeled as number 12 when it should of been 11. I already fixed the numbering system. Brobot is now number 75 (I also found a duplicate of Fuzzy). Try to keep the chronological numbering system straight. It will lead to less work when going back through. Yoshissm-animated walk.gif Yoshi the SSM (talk) 01:41, 13 November 2016 (EST)

When we thought we were done with this, a new plan on how to deal with the bestiaries has emerged. Please make a comment about it on its talk page. Yoshissm-animated walk.gif Yoshi the SSM (talk) 23:35, 21 November 2016 (EST)

Bloated File Sizes[edit]

Your uploads are ridiculous in file size in relation to dimensions and color depth! Use PNG Monstrous man! I shrunk them down to 2-3% of the file size of your uploads. --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 04:46, 15 November 2016 (EST)

Yikes! Sorry about that. I'm not sure what's going on there. My early files were just fine, but my latest ones are ginormous! I'm starting to consider staying away from images altogether. I can't seem to get it right.

If you can use PNG Monstrous (for Windows), then you should be fine with your uploads as they will fix the file sizes to be as small as possible. --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 15:10, 15 November 2016 (EST)


Congratulations on finishing the SPM bestiary! You've done quite an impressive job.
Luigi 64DD.png (talk · edits) 16:48, 15 November 2016 (EST)

Besides some minor changes (I forgot to click the minor change button), the article was very good. By the way, I made a comment on Talk:List of Catch Cards. I was wondering if you can answer it. Not here obviously, but on the talk page. Yoshissm-animated walk.gif Yoshi the SSM (talk) 17:20, 15 November 2016 (EST)
Thanks! The really annoying part was the numbering system. I went through and cleaned those up before saving the page, but there were several times during creation that I screwed up on those. But I think I can safely say that SPM has a total of 196 different enemies.
Ultimate Mr L sig.png Ultimate Mr. L (Talk-Contribs-Stats) 17:32, 15 November 2016 (EST)
And if one would count the Sammer Guys with that number, it would be 396. Yoshissm-animated walk.gif Yoshi the SSM (talk) 17:52, 15 November 2016 (EST)
Speaking of which, I didn't include Sammer Guy, Big Sammer Guy and Small Sammer Guy, as I thought it would be redundant and a bit weird since I can't include exact stats, just a range. Was I right?
Ultimate Mr L sig.png Ultimate Mr. L (Talk-Contribs-Stats) 18:07, 15 November 2016 (EST)
Yes. Yoshissm-animated walk.gif Yoshi the SSM (talk) 18:08, 15 November 2016 (EST)

I just realized that you missed two Ninjoe-related enemies. (they are optional enemies that fight with Sammer Guys. Yoshissm-animated walk.gif Yoshi the SSM (talk) 18:10, 15 November 2016 (EST)

No, they're there. Ninjohn and Ninjerry? They are after Super Dimentio, since they are not fought in the main story, only in the Duel of 100 after completion of the game.
Ultimate Mr L sig.png Ultimate Mr. L (Talk-Contribs-Stats) 18:12, 15 November 2016 (EST)
Sorry if I didn't see them until now. Yoshissm-animated walk.gif Yoshi the SSM (talk) 18:13, 15 November 2016 (EST)

Just realized that I forgot Dark Magiblot. So there's 197 different enemies. If you disregard the bosses, there's 170. If you count recurring bosses only once, 190. Ultimate Mr L sig.png Ultimate Mr. L (Talk-Contribs-Stats) 19:07, 15 November 2016 (EST)

Now that you are mostly finished the bestiary, are you gonna go back to making SMM levels?
Luigi 64DD.png (talk · edits) 19:10, 15 November 2016 (EST)

Maybe. I've also got a few more SPM level articles to rewrite, I believe.
Ultimate Mr L sig.png Ultimate Mr. L (Talk-Contribs-Stats) 19:12, 15 November 2016 (EST)
Do you mind if I help with the SMM levels, since I don't have any major projects other than the Yoshi franchise articles that me and YSSM were working on? Or would you rather do that yourself?

RE: Shadoo Sprites[edit]

To get there, that would take a first pass through Flipside Pit of 100 Trials and a first pass through twice in Flopside Pit of 100 Trials to battle him. That's a long time of playing. Here's what I suggest to shortcut it. We have sprites uploaded of the main playable characters. Just make the entire sprite black (#000000). Select all the transparency in GIMP or something, invert the selection, and use the pencil tool with a radius of whatever (200px I guess) and color it all in. That's Shadoo in all four forms. Judging by the article already, it's not necessary. We have sufficient imagery to show what Shadoo looks like. --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 19:39, 15 November 2016 (EST)

OK, but it's not that much work (I just finished Dark Mario) and I think that of we can get a non-Card sprite, easily, why not?

RE: Images without images[edit]

I don't know if it is possible to resize them. I researched it, but could find no way to do it. One thing you could do is:

  1. Save the image
  2. Resize it in an image editing program (like Paint)
  3. Upload the resized image to an image hosting site (like Imgur)
  4. Link to that

I think you'd need an account on the image hosting site to do that, though. Sorry I couldn't find a better way.

RE:The Adventures of Captain Toad[edit]

I actually have not beaten 3D World 100%, yet. Still working on that. Regardless, there aren't any Gold Stars in the Captain Toad levels, there are Green Stars like any other level, though collecting the Green Stars is a requirement in order to complete the levels. Yes, they are required for 100% and no, you don't need to complete them with every character as the game will only let you play as Captain Toad for those levels. I think I explained that well enough. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 14:01, 20 November 2016 (EST)

Just making sure. OK then, on to World 3. Thanks. (The Captain Toad levels being the only levels without Gold Stars is going to mess with my OCD.)
Ultimate Mr L sig.png Ultimate Mr. L (Talk-Contribs-Stats) 15:09, 20 November 2016 (EST)
You're welcome! ...I don't think there are any Gold Stars in Super Mario 3D World, actually. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 15:14, 20 November 2016 (EST)
When you complete a course 100% (all Green Stars, Stamp, top of flag, completed with every character), the Green Star on top of the flag is replaced with a gold/yellow one.
Ultimate Mr L sig.png Ultimate Mr. L (Talk-Contribs-Stats) 15:37, 20 November 2016 (EST)
Ah, that's what you meant. For some reason, I thought you were talking about some collectable star. :P Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 16:23, 20 November 2016 (EST)

Well, now that I know exactly what Gold Star you are talking about, I can say yes, Captain Toad levels immediately receive a Gold Star on the top of the flag upon clearing the level. Sorry for the confusion. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 18:32, 21 November 2016 (EST)

But I have completed the level, almost all of them, every Green Star. But no Gold Star.
Ultimate Mr L sig.png Ultimate Mr. L (Talk-Contribs-Stats) 19:24, 21 November 2016 (EST)
...Maybe you have to clear all the Captain Toad levels first, then. Looking at my game, they all have Gold Stars. Perhaps you just have to clear them all for the Gold Star to appear? Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 20:25, 21 November 2016 (EST)
A friend of mine, who has beat the game 100%, informed that the only way to turn the Green Stars gold is to beat all the Captain Toad levels.

Hello, sorry for the delay in responding. The only way to protect your talk archives so that no other user can edit it but you, would be to move it to the "User:" namespace, however that is not allowed. Sorry about that. I suggest to just add your archives to your watchlist, so you can be notified if there is the off situation where someone illegitimately edits your archives.

Re: Poll[edit]

From what I've heard, there was a Nintendo Power magazine that had a poll asking what part of Super Paper Mario did fans like the most and the story aspect was the lowest scoring point. So it lead me to believe that's why Sticker Star turned out the way it was; a lacking RPG with no story or character to it. That's pretty much what I meant. I could be wrong, but that's what I've heard around the internet. Shame too, Super Paper Mario's story is what I feel to be the best storyline in any Mario series game. YoshiHeadSSBU.png Tails777 Talk to me!SSBUStockIcon - Robin.png

Not a problem. If you want my two cents on the topic, I think an RPG runs on plot and characters. Solid gameplay is another aspect that I heavily enjoy, which is why I love the first two Paper Mario games and hope for a true sequel to them. Super Paper Mario was accepted in my case because it still kept a grand majority of RPG elements, such as HP, attack power and defense power, the charming Paper Mario appearances for characters and enemies and, best of all, an amazing plot and characters. Sticker Star didn't have that and Color Splash tried to fool us into thinking it had that, but it didn't. Just my opinions though, nothing more or less. YoshiHeadSSBU.png Tails777 Talk to me!SSBUStockIcon - Robin.png

Now what?[edit]

I think my proposal just passed, but I don't know what happens to it now.--EldritchdraaksSig1.pngEldritchdraaksSig2.png 20:46, 29 November 2016 (EST)

You came to the wrong place. The only proposal I've ever hosted was a TPP, so I have no idea what happens to it now. If you're wondering about what to do about the bestiaries because the proposal passed, that's up to you. You started the proposal and therefore get first crack at making the changes that came of it.
P.S. I'm flattered that you came to me for help. That means I'm making progress. Thank you.

Super Paper Mario bestiary[edit]

Alright! I was told you should be the one to upgrade the Super Paper Mario bestiary.
Here's the template you'll need: template:SPMbestiary
Everything should be self explanatory since it's almost no different from placing the enemy boxes. But, I do have a few pointers:
  • Whatever you put next to |name= needs to be exactly what you replace NAME with. However, no two enemies on the page can have the same NAME.
    • Don't worry about setting up the link. By default, |name= is used to link the Enemy's name to it's article. If you get to an enemy that uses extra text like O'Chunks (1), use |altname= for the real link to the article.
  • Please don't alter the code of the template, unless you are changing the colors. In which case, please make sure the color best represents the game, only. Thank you!
  • The stats at the bottom of the code that relate to the catch cards do not appear on the bestiary page, but they still need to be filled in. Those stats are visible after being transcluded to the enemybox.
  • Place the image file link inside {{{image|}}}. This way allows the option to use a different picture in the enemy box, rather than using the one on the bestiary.
  • Oh, and for the |role=, this is the replacement method for using Bold, Italic, Bold and Italic, and Bold First Letter to indicate what kind of enemy it is.
    • Use these: common, miniboss, boss, support, optional
  • Finally, don't change |align={{{align|right}}} because this is the way to change the alignment of the enemybox.
If you want to replace the enemybox on every page, replace them with this
{{:Super Paper Mario bestiary|transcludesection=NAME
Good luck!


Sounds good. Thanks
Ultimate Mr L sig.png Ultimate Mr. L (Talk-Contribs-Stats) 10:36, 30 November 2016 (EST)
Just a heads up, I swapped the |name= and |altname= variables, so now |name= is the true link and will be displayed by default, and |altname= is if the name displayed needs to be different.
--EldritchdraaksSig1.pngEldritchdraaksSig2.png 13:24, 30 November 2016 (EST)

I did. I think I know what your problem is, but I don't agree. I'm guessing you don't think it's necessary to list all of Nastasia's actions in every chapter interlude. But I think that's just fine. If that is the problem, we should get more user input. That's usually my solution to conflict.

Off Waves Recovered[edit]

Hey, hope you're not too upset at Off Waves being deleted earlier. I asked Henry Tucayo Clay (talk) to recover the latest information, so that has all been readded. Nothing has been lost :)

Additionally (and I didn't exactly help much in this regard as I completely blanked on it...), if you want to move the information from one page to another, you have to actually click the "Move" option at the top. If the target page currently has history on it, it won't allow the move, so you have to mark it up for deletion saying something like {{delete|Make way for move}}. Doing this preserves the pages' histories so there's no loss of information. I don't know if you knew that already and blanked out on it yourself like I did, but here's the information for next time. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 13:32, 20 March 2017 (EDT)

I'd be upset if the information couldn't be recovered, but I'm not too mad about the other part. I did not know the protocol for moving a page to a name that already exists, so thanks to you and Yoshi876 (talk) for fixing that up for me.
Ultimate Mr L sig.png Ultimate Mr. L (Talk-Contribs-Stats) 16:47, 20 March 2017 (EDT)

Hi, are you familiar with the account RogueSphere5678 (talk)? You both appear to share the exact same IP address and computer info. Zero Suit Samus pose SMM.png Mario JC 21:58, 28 March 2017 (EDT)

I realized as soon as I saw your message that I had made a mistake. My friend is over and he made an account... on my computer. Don't worry, I'm not sockpuppeting. If this is a problem, I suppose his account could be deleted and he could remake it at his house, but that would screw up the one contribution he made. Is there a way to move the IP info when he goes home?
Ultimate Mr L sig.png Ultimate Mr. L (Talk-Contribs-Stats) 22:03, 28 March 2017 (EDT)

I managed to get by for a few weeks, but eventually, the guys at Nintendo of America quite allowing me to edit this wiki, probably afraid I'd give away new information (I write the stories for the games). So I'm afraid I need to go inactive. I won't be returning. Look for my name in the credits of the next Mario game. Goodbye, everyone. Keep contributing, since I can't. Ultimate Mr. L is real 2401!

Lucky! It'll be sad without you here, but good luck with your new profession! Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 12:15, 1 April 2017 (EDT)
April Fools! While Story Writer remains my dream job, I do not work for Nintendo and will be contributing, hopefully, for years to come. :)

No, you did not. I was just playing along. It would be cool if it happened, though! :) Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 01:00, 2 April 2017 (EDT)
I'm sure if you was working for Nintendo you still would be able to edit the wiki.

Super Mario Maker Sample Courses[edit]

Hey, on your work page, it says that you plan on creating the articles for the sample courses, but is it ok if I create some of them? I accidentally already created four of them before asking. --FlameChompNSMBW.pngTheFlameChomp (talk) 13:48, 2 April 2017 (EDT)

I completely forgot about that project! I'm finally not busy, so I can get back on it, but I don't mind some help.
Ultimate Mr L sig.png Ultimate Mr. L (Talk-Contribs-Stats) 16:05, 2 April 2017 (EDT)
Thanks, I only planned on making a few anyway. I'll probably be able to make at least one tomorrow. --FlameChompNSMBW.pngTheFlameChomp (talk) 17:57, 2 April 2017 (EDT)
I believe that I have made all of the sample course articles I planned on. Thanks again for letting me help! It also appears that Toadette the Achiever (talk) is helping creating sample course articles. --FlameChompNSMBW.pngTheFlameChomp (talk) 17:20, 14 April 2017 (EDT)

re: Shadow Character[edit]

My logic is that there were still wicks to the Shadow Character page when I made the redirect, and when merging pages, I prefer to make redirects so that anyone who remember the original name can more easily look up what happened to the page. --Glowsquid (talk) 23:47, 2 April 2017 (EDT)

Image Replaced[edit]

File:Normal lizardguy.jpg has been replaced by File:Francis SPM trans.png and your userpage is using the now deleted image. Just a heads up. --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 18:57, 5 April 2017 (EDT)

Thanks for the heads up!

How have you been?[edit]

Hey, it's been a while since I've talked to you; how's it been going for you? It looks like you've been less active here the past few months. I've been editing less here, but I've been on the forum a lot. Do you have a forum account?
Luigi 64DD.png (talk · edits) 14:08, 6 April 2017 (EDT)

I do not. And yes, I have been less active, but I'm still on at least once a day to check the Recent Changes.
Ultimate Mr L sig.png Ultimate Mr. L (Talk-Contribs-Stats) 15:17, 6 April 2017 (EDT)


Hello! According to the policy, a proper-capitalization redirect and all-lowercase redirect may exist for each topic, so Afoot in the Foothills, The Sands of Yold, and Monster of the Ruins are okay to have. --FlameChompNSMBW.pngTheFlameChomp (talk) 20:09, 20 June 2017 (EDT)

Oh, okay. Thanks for the heads up. So should I make the rest of them all-lowercase, or should I make a capitalized and lowercase one for each level?
Ultimate Mr L sig.png Ultimate Mr. L (Talk-Contribs-Stats) 20:11, 20 June 2017 (EDT)
You should probably make both, as when I asked Henry Tucayo Clay (talk) about it awhile age, he mentioned that just having a lowercase redirect would cause a red link if the proper name was linked to in an article.--FlameChompNSMBW.pngTheFlameChomp (talk) 20:13, 20 June 2017 (EDT)
Will do. I'll start now. Thanks.
Ultimate Mr L sig.png Ultimate Mr. L (Talk-Contribs-Stats) 20:14, 20 June 2017 (EDT)

On the topic of redirects, please also keep in mind that, according to policy, lowercase redirects are not necessary if searching in all lowercase takes you to the page, either directly or through another redirect, without the lowercase redirect. So "afoot in the foothills" is fine because, without it, MediaWiki's search function won't recognise it as "Afoot in the Foothills". Redirects like "into outer space" are unneeded, since searching that will take me there anyway thanks to another one you created, "Into Outer Space". I would recommend searching first before creating a redirect. Thanks! Zero Suit Samus pose SMM.png Mario JC 02:12, 21 June 2017 (EDT)

Oh, okay. For a lot of them, I used the Search bar, but the redirect still worked. But I thought I still needed a lowercase one (not sure what was going on in my head), so I went to an article, made a link, clicked show preview, and clicked the red link to make it. So no more of that.
Ultimate Mr L sig.png Ultimate Mr. L (Talk-Contribs-Stats) 11:17, 21 June 2017 (EDT)
It seems that we don't need a lowercase redirect if all of the words are capitalized in the proper one. For example, I needed both for A Crag in the Dark because two words are lowercase. But I only needed one for The Sealed Doors Three.

You're cool![edit]

Hey, I got a few userpage ideas from you and think you're really cool! Nice work on your userpage! DarkBowserBIS.pngDarkBowser777(talk)Dreamy Bowser idle.png 20:29, 13 August 2017 (EDT)

Thanks! Your page is cool, too. (I enjoyed Dark Fawful vs Dreamy Bowser vs. SUPER MEGA ULTRA GREAT RUTHLESS GIANT BLIZZARD MIDBUS)
Ultimate Mr L sig.png Ultimate Mr. L (Talk-Contribs-Stats) 21:16, 13 August 2017 (EDT)

Thank you! DarkBowserBIS.pngDarkBowser777(talk)Dreamy Bowser idle.png 09:19, 14 August 2017 (EDT)


I agree with darkbowser, i think your userpage is cool too! --Luigifan312 (talk) 22:38, 25 August 2017 (EDT)

Moving pages[edit]

Something to keep in mind: whenever you move an article, you're also responsible for correcting every link to that article. Victory Parade applies; every article that links to Parade should instead link to that page. Hello, I'm Time Turner. 20:28, 6 October 2017 (EDT)

OK. Thanks for the reminder.
Ultimate Mr L sig.png Ultimate Mr. L (Talk-Contribs-Stats) 13:23, 8 October 2017 (EDT)
The navigation templates also count, and every link there is transcluded onto the articles it's on. In this case, Template:PM still linked to it. Editing the navigation templates first clears out the bulk of the list. Hello, I'm Time Turner.
OK. Thanks a bunch.

Two Minor Things[edit]

Oh, okay, I got it, Black Lightning. As for archiving my talk page, um...I don't know. Alex95 always archives his talk page when it reaches one-hundred topics, so I might have a little bit of space to work with. I don't know, I will have to look into it, but anyway, thanks for the info! I will be sure to keep it in mind, Black Lightning. Lcrossmk8 (talk) 21:11, 27 October 2017 (EDT)

Goomboss Trivia[edit]

Just letting you know, I didn't create that piece of trivia about Goomboss' motives. I just fixed a lot of spelling mistakes and grammatical errors. I even questioned its position as being trivial or not.--Seandwalsh (talk) 12:33, 31 October 2017 (EDT)

Yeah, I know. I'm the one who undid the original edit. See my edit summaries for my reasoning.
Ultimate Mr L sig.png Ultimate Mr. L (Talk-Contribs-Stats) 14:09, 31 October 2017 (EDT)


Don't scare me with that title Yes. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 18:31, 31 October 2017 (EDT)

thanks for reminding[edit]

thanks for reminding me to sign comments

also I am just in a hurry to write a message so if I forget it is because I am in a hurry Mariostar6 (talk) 18:38, 31 October 2017 (EDT)Mariostar6 see I have signed see .Mariostar6 (talk) 18:22, 1 November 2017 (EDT)mariostar6


As I have said before, I don't indent my comments because I don't want this to happen. Lcrossmk8 (talk) 22:28, 4 November 2017 (EDT)


Be careful about removing too many references. Anything that just says "this exists" can be freely removed, but you've also removed a citation from the Prima strategy guide. Since that information is only available in said guide, it should stay. Hello, I'm Time Turner. 10:06, 6 November 2017 (EST)

Oh, okay. Sorry about that.
Ultimate Mr L sig.png Ultimate Mr. L (Talk-Contribs-Stats) 14:55, 6 November 2017 (EST)


I know that, but I've always noticed him doing something with his signature, so that's why I put the reminder there. Again, I was not trying to overreact there, so don't jump off the slippery slope. Lcrossmk8 (talk) 20:58, 4 December 2017 (EST)

He actually has been doing a lot with it, I've noticed every time. That's 14 edits in the past one month. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 20:59, 4 December 2017 (EST)
Looks like Alex95 cleared that up.
Ultimate Mr L sig.png Ultimate Mr. L (Talk-Contribs-Stats) 21:09, 4 December 2017 (EST)
While he does tend to edit his userspace a lot, it really becomes a problem if it's consistent and/or his focus (i.e. more edits to userspace than mainspace). Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 21:12, 4 December 2017 (EST)

The New Guy.[edit]

Hi, Ultimate Mr. L! My name's SafariKid2.

And yes, I'm the guy who accidentally added Peach, Geno and Mallow to the Villains category. SafariKid2 19:48, 9 December 2017 (EST)

An accident.[edit]

Sorry, I just help it...

The former (Scaredy Rat) is just a wee bit of a spoiler for M&LPJ, despite it being already released, and the latter (Mizzter Blizzard) is kind of weird, since you guys don't know is some of the bosses and final bosses are truly villains or not. SafariKid2 20:20, 9 December 2017 (EST)

Metal Face[edit]

Don't tell me, is the boss category sufficient enough for Metal Face as well?

RE: Edit Sniping[edit]

Order of navigation templates[edit]

I elaborated on my oppose vote on this proposal, which I think you might want to comment on, especially regarding the last point. Toadette icon CTTT.pngArchivistToadettefont.png(T|C) 16:08, 18 January 2018 (EST)

You made some valid points, so I added a vote to Option 4, while giving more reasoning for my vote on Option 2.
Ultimate Mr L sig.png Ultimate Mr. L (Talk-Contribs-Stats) 16:43, 18 January 2018 (EST)
P.S. I had to remove your paragraph indents, as those screw up the numbering system. It's a big-ol' block of text now, but there's nothing we can do about it. Sorry.

Userpage transclusion[edit]

Nope. If you're only planning on transcluding your userbox tower onto one page, that's not allowed. Your status can go on a subpage if it's also on your talk, however. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 20:43, 22 January 2018 (EST)

I knew as soon as I saw I had a message that it had to be about that. Darn. I actually felt kind of smart for once in my life. Okay, I'll go ahead and take it down, butI'll look into this matter a bit more. This kind of thing is useful for people like me with insanely long userbox towers, so I want to know the details. Anyway, thanks for the alert.
Ultimate Mr L sig.png Ultimate Mr. L (Talk-Contribs-Stats) 20:47, 22 January 2018 (EST)
It would be a good idea if it wasn't for the policy :P If you want to cut down on bytes and loading time, may be a good idea to go over your page and see what can be done with. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 20:50, 22 January 2018 (EST)

Bowser quote[edit]

One of the Bowser quotes in Super Paper Mario we have listed seems off to me: "That Mr. L freak is a total insano." I don't know what an "insano" is, and the word "insane" doesn't seem to work here. What is this supposed to be? Quote's in Chapter 6. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 12:33, 5 February 2018 (EST)

I have no way of getting all of Bowser's quotes from throughout the game other than playing it again, so I'm not sure. i can't find a single video of Bowser against Brobot L-type, so I can't confirm or deny that he said that.
