Hello there:

Yes, I'm the Wiki Creator who approved your wiki, and I came by to check on your progress on this wiki. I'd say it's looking good right now. Thanks for reading this message. DarkMatterMan4500 (talk) 10:23, 17 June 2021 (UTC)

Thanks! User:HannahMontanaFan


Why are you making a mario wiki that's an exact duplicate of the one at, including the reuse of one of their logos? RMV2003 (talk) 19:41, 29 October 2021 (UTC)

Those are just placeholders to get the site up to speed. Those will be reworked in due time. Also, the logo is used because I found it and felt it looked cool so I used it. Also, I haven't made them completely identical, I have been trying to differentiate. Keep in mind the site is still way under construction but when it's completed, it will be much bigger than it is now. Also, I have experimenting with some texts and rewording a couple of the pages (something I may have to do to a larger extent in the future), and I have been making proper amendments to further make my site stand out. I also have a background planned for the site which will further differentiate it. It will be added once I figure out how to add a background. User:HannahMontanaFan

You have over 700 articles, so I would probably advise you to start thinking of ways to differentiate this wiki if you absolutely need to do an alternative. Also, perhaps ask Miraheze staff to change from "Super Mario Wiki, The Encyclopedia for everything Mario" to simply "Super Mario Wiki", as you can add "The Encyclopedia for everything Mario" into MediaWiki:Tagline & url change from to Perhaps add a disclaimer to acknowledge that a lot of this wiki's content is from, as this is what's required under CC-BY-SA. Also yeah I like the logo as well -- it's a classic. RMV2003 (talk) 23:04, 29 October 2021 (UTC)

Thanks for the tips! I will try to think of ways to differentiate, I have already been giving my titles different names, I have also allowed the use of videos on my pages provided they're relevant to the subject. I have also planned some Seasonal variations of the Logo for the site too (like variations for Halloween, Christmas, Valentines Day, St. Patricks Day, and Easter) but those won't come into play till at least next year. The URL looks more better too I don't know why I didn't think of that at first. Thanks! User:HannahMontanaFan

No problem. You can probably ask DarkMatterMan4500 to make the two changes that I suggested:
  • Changing sitename from "About Super Mario Wiki, The Encyclopedia for everything Mario" to "About Super Mario Wiki"
  • Changing url from to

Also, there's a Mariopedia. Perhaps you could've used that for a basis instead. RMV2003 (talk) 23:29, 29 October 2021 (UTC)

For starters, maybe use this for a favicon: RMV2003 (talk) 23:33, 29 October 2021 (UTC)

Thanks for the Favicon! I was actually aware of Mariopedia, I last checked that site out years ago. What did you mean by use it for a basis?

Also, Thanks again! I will ask him to forward those changes. User:HannahMontanaFan

As in reusing that stuff for your wiki rather than Perhaps even wikipedia RMV2003 (talk) 23:42, 29 October 2021 (UTC)

character infobox

I added a different character infobox to Template:Character infobox, which I took from Mariopedia. It allows for more bright colors. Example:

{{Character infobox |bgcolor=red |txtcolor=blue |name=Mario |image= |caption=Mario's artwork from ''[[New Super Mario Bros. Wii]]''. |powers=Fireballs, punching, kicking, etc. |species=Human |affiliations=[[Mushroom Kingdom]] |enemies=[[Koopa Troop]] |games=''[[Mario (series)|Mario]]'' series games |first_appearance=''[[Donkey Kong]]'' (1981) |latest_appearance=''[[Mario Sports Mix]]'' (2010) }}

I want to add to articles like Luigi but those pages are admin protected. Why not just lower it to autoconfirmed? RMV2003 (talk) 23:45, 29 October 2021 (UTC)

Actually, that one looks pretty good! The reason I put it on full protection is because it was a major page and to prevent trolls from trashing/vandalizing it esp. during the early stages of the site. I also have templates relating to requesting page protection/unprotection. User:HannahMontanaFan

I suppose you could make me an admin so that I can edit these pages. Would that be ok? You can do from changing user rights. RMV2003 (talk) 23:57, 29 October 2021 (UTC)

I've just given you the rights, they will be intact for 6 Months, if you do well, you can be a permanent admin! User:HannahMontanaFan

Sounds great -- I might not be fully active though, seeing as I have some other things to do. RMV2003 (talk) 12:48, 30 October 2021 (UTC)


Are there any updates that you can share (regarding wiki name, favicon, url)? Did you request the name change among other things? I also added Template:MarioWiki that you can add on articles that use content from Mario RMV2003 (talk) 02:08, 30 October 2021 (UTC)

Not yet, I've been out for most of the day but I am back now and I will request those. Also, thanks for the template! UPDATE: I just added it now, it should show within the next hour or so. User:HannahMontanaFan

2013-14 mariowiki

I've began to notice that you recycle Mario Wiki content from as of 2013, as the Super Mario series section on the Mario article doesn't go past Super Mario 3D World. Is there any reason in specific for that RMV2003 (talk) 13:00, 30 October 2021 (UTC)

It's because I felt that the 2013-2014 versions have more plentiful information, after that time saw a downsize in the info and it included just moreso the basics rather than interesting facts along with it too. The informations can't be found anywhere else either and the purpose of this site is to expand the knowledge of Mario to those that view it. It's also because it stays in line with the coding for the templates of the site. I got most of them from the wayback machine. I've almost never got the coding from the actual site. Another interesting fact, I couldn't get any version from before mid-2010 as before then, it required you to log in to view the page's source. User:HannahMontanaFan

Yeah for the templates on modern Mario Wiki, they store it in the css. Luckily I know/have practiced quite a bit of css, so I can help you on that RMV2003 (talk) 13:37, 30 October 2021 (UTC)

Thanks! I'd appreciate that! :) User:HannahMontanaFan

Do you want to adopt this wiki (someone hasn't done anything to it as of yet)? You could make it a partner project to this wiki I'm thinking. RMV2003 (talk) 13:19, 30 October 2021 (UTC)

Sure! That would be awesome! :) User:HannahMontanaFan

I won't have time to maintain it, as I edit and maintain several other wikis, so that's why I suggested you adopt the wiki and partner it with this website. RMV2003 (talk) 13:26, 30 October 2021 (UTC)
For example, I run places like and RMV2003 (talk) 13:27, 30 October 2021 (UTC)
Both examples I listed have the traditional format, whereas I've been trying a different format on your wiki if that makes sense. So yeah, I'd say you can probably go right ahead and adopt to partner with this wiki, as it sounds like something you'd be willing to do RMV2003 (talk) 13:46, 30 October 2021 (UTC)

Sure. I could do that! User:HannahMontanaFan

Sounds good. RMV2003 (talk) 13:56, 30 October 2021 (UTC)
What are your plans for what will you use as a basis? what will the coverage scope look like? RMV2003 (talk) 22:04, 30 October 2021 (UTC)
I went ahead and filed a request for adoption so that we can partner it with this wiki. RMV2003 (talk) 13:08, 31 October 2021 (UTC)

Perfect! User:HannahMontanaFan


I gave this nav template its own design to differentiate. I hope you like it RMV2003 (talk) 14:32, 30 October 2021 (UTC)

Looks Good! User:HannahMontanaFan


Is it ok if this shows up on Special:Upload by default? I made a File info template so that the file pages don't look empty. Many are uncategoried & need image categories. Might I suggest, e.g., Category:Super Princess Peach Sprites, Category:Super Princess Peach Screenshots, etc.? RMV2003 (talk) 22:21, 30 October 2021 (UTC)

Sure! That could work! It doesn't already? User:HannahMontanaFan

It does work RMV2003 (talk) 04:25, 31 October 2021 (UTC)

Site name

Darkmatter said that you can change the site name in the site settings, if you want to have a look into that. I'll make a site tagline/pagetitle and propose to you once you've simplified it to simply "Super Mario Wiki." I think to differentiate at least a little bit, you could just go with simply "Mario Wiki." I'll see if I can make a new logo in the meantime. RMV2003 (talk) 04:25, 31 October 2021 (UTC)

Thanks! That's been done, for now I think the logo is fine esp. as I am working on some Seasonal variations for it. User:HannahMontanaFan


are you able to edit Special:Interwiki to add mariowiki:, which would link to$1 ? RMV2003 (talk) 02:17, 1 November 2021 (UTC)

Unfortunately, I don't see an edit button on the page. User:HannahMontanaFan

Should we contact support over this? RMV2003 (talk) 03:07, 1 November 2021 (UTC)

I think that's a good idea. Yes we should! User:HannahMontanaFan


I added loads of file licenses just now, and you'll see them in Special:Upload from a dropdown (and can customize from MediaWiki:Licenses). The licenses are very different from those on mariowiki, and are actually lifted from Final Fantasy Wiki on Fandom but with a Mario theme/spin added to it :) RMV2003 (talk) 03:24, 1 November 2021 (UTC)

Cool! Nice Work! I did get a couple of the templates myself from Wikia as well, (such as the delete template and the non-canon one). User:HannahMontanaFan

I changed the non canon template because the large light blue box felt visually distracting. obv, because this is your wiki, feel free to revert in the end. also, what's with the image in Template:Delete? RMV2003 (talk) 06:00, 1 November 2021 (UTC)

I added the image to give the template some decoration, it was used on the SML Wikia's Delete Template many years ago, it has since been changed and can't be found anywhere else. I thought the image looked funny so I used it here. As for the Non-Canon Template, I got that from Smurfs Wikia. I just added the Flower icon to it myself. User:HannahMontanaFan

I guess the thing about the Delete template's image is that it's unrelated to Mario, so it would prob work better as a personal image. RMV2003 (talk) 14:37, 1 November 2021 (UTC)


Are you someone who plays Pokemon? i'm just curious RMV2003 (talk) 00:41, 2 November 2021 (UTC)

Personally, I've never really been a big Pokemon player, I played once but it was very briefly. Most of the non-Mario games I play are also non-Nintendo games too. User:HannahMontanaFan

Would still be of interest to you once I adopt & start fresh with new layout akin to this wiki's? RMV2003 (talk) 01:02, 2 November 2021 (UTC)

url changed

looks like url has changed to successfully! RMV2003 (talk) 10:25, 2 November 2021 (UTC)

Yep! I was confused as to why the page didn't load but here we are. It's changed! :D User:HannahMontanaFan

Ahhh, that nice alliteration of Mario and Miraheze :) RMV2003 (talk) 10:38, 2 November 2021 (UTC)

Oh Yeah! :) User:HannahMontanaFan


Mind if I changed the sitenotice? I didn't intend for it to be permanent -- I just thought it would be nice to clarify to others what this wiki is all about. RMV2003 (talk) 17:26, 2 November 2021 (UTC)

Sure! What will you change it to? User:HannahMontanaFan
Did you see above? It says "Hello, and welcome to the Super Mario Wiki! Please note that many of our articles are older revisions from the identically-named wiki at, as one of this wiki's aspects is to reflect the other Super Mario Wiki from their earlier days." RMV2003 (talk) 19:58, 2 November 2021 (UTC)

Cool, you could also add the fact that the site preserves more information too but that's entirely your call. User:HannahMontanaFan

What info specifically? RMV2003 (talk) 21:39, 2 November 2021 (UTC)

For some pages (eg. Jolly Roger Bay and Swooper) they are expanded upon. The site also includes variations of pages that aren't on the other site (eg. Blue Podoboo and Chain Chomp (partner)). User:HannahMontanaFan

I know what you mean. The other site likes to merge color variants and subjects that have the same Japanese name but have a different English name. It's interesting. As for Jolly Roger Bay, this revision appears to be from before the missions were split into their own articles. RMV2003 (talk) 22:08, 2 November 2021 (UTC)

Yeah, I also added the fact that they sky remains dark in the DS remake in Jolly Roger Bay's section. I did have plans to add pages on the missions but they would be more of a strategy section. It is kind of strange that they merge that stuff as what if they merge two completely different creatures? User:HannahMontanaFan

I definitely think the missions could have their own articles while also having the information shown on the Jolly Roger Bay page for ease RMV2003 (talk) 23:04, 2 November 2021 (UTC)

Me too, I was planning on giving the mission pages more of a strategy feel (like explaining how to get the Star easier for example). The informations on the pages are the overall layout/terrain of the course in that mission. User:HannahMontanaFan

logo and favicon

Those currently aren't showing up for me, but I let DarkMatterMan4500 know & forward this to the technical support team RMV2003 (talk) 20:31, 2 November 2021 (UTC)

At first the logo wasn't showing up for me but now it is, the favicon on the other hand is still displayed as a bent paper (the default Chrome tab). User:HannahMontanaFan

Splitting subjects by franchise

I wanted to ask you something -- would it be ok if we split certain subjects based on whether they're in Mario, Yoshi, Wario, or Donkey Kong series? For example, the Rope article could be a disambiguation to ropes in the Mario series or Ropes in the Donkey Kong series. RMV2003 (talk) 15:57, 6 November 2021 (UTC) That could work, sure! User:HannahMontanaFan

Low activity

Hi sorry for low activity. I've been working on some other wikis in meantime (and I said I'm on more often than your wiki, but I still check recent changes here daily) but the main reason is because I've been waiting to adopt (I filed the request 2 weeks ago & am still waiting...) RMV2003 (talk) 16:57, 12 November 2021 (UTC)

Okay Cool! I understand if you can't frequent this site but feel free to edit here whenever you choose! I do appreciate the stuff you have done for the site! It's really helped! :) User:HannahMontanaFan

I am very glad you like it! I'm sure we'll have a great holiday season :) RMV2003 (talk) 21:50, 12 November 2021 (UTC)

I do indeed! I'm sure of that too! :D User:HannahMontanaFan

Nintendo Wiki open for editing

I managed to get a Miraheze stuff member to open and unlock Nintendo Miraheze for editing. I made the very first article here. RMV2003 (talk) 16:25, 16 November 2021 (UTC)

Nice! User:HannahMontanaFan
Hopefully all goes well & I can make the design a direct parallel to that of this wiki's. RMV2003 (talk) 21:25, 16 November 2021 (UTC)

New articles

Check recent changes -- I made a few originally written Donkey Kong-related articles :D RMV2003 (talk) 18:03, 17 November 2021 (UTC)

Nice Work! :D User:HannahMontanaFan
Are you ok if I changed the favicon to a Mushroom sprite from the Mario 1 remake for Super Mario All-Stars? RMV2003 (talk) 19:55, 17 November 2021 (UTC)

Main page buttons

Hi, do you want me to redesign the main page with unique-looking button images? I saw them used on MarioWikia once, and I could make unique images for here if you'd like.

For example: RMV2003 (talk) 15:54, 18 November 2021 (UTC)

Perfect I did get a couple concepts from Mario Wikia. Those would definitely work, the current buttons are based on the ones on the Mario Kart Wikia but recolored but yeah, those look great! User:HannahMontanaFan
Okay, I'll see what I can do RMV2003 (talk) 20:39, 18 November 2021 (UTC)
Check the front page now. Some stuff like Mario TV, Mario RPGs were taken off (they can be readded if you'd like -- I'll prob make icons for them as well), but I hope you like how the Main Page looks! :) RMV2003 (talk) 21:45, 18 November 2021 (UTC)
Nice! Looks good! You have done super well! I would appreciate adding the icons for the sub-series' as well. User:HannahMontanaFan
I'll get to that. Sry for removing them -- it took some effort doing the other icons, so I needed to take a pause before getting to some of the other ones RMV2003 (talk) 00:05, 19 November 2021 (UTC)
Okay I added some more spinoff icons. Thank you for the increased administrator rights btw :) RMV2003 (talk) 00:44, 19 November 2021 (UTC)
No Problem and Nice work! :D User:HannahMontanaFan

SSB item page -- Bombchu

Does this look good to you? RMV2003 (talk) 18:46, 22 November 2021 (UTC)

Looks Great! :) User:HannahMontanaFan -- I'm now a bureaucrat

Hi, I'm just letting you know that I'm now a bureaucrat on nintendo wiki. Want to be affiliates? Also, under Special:ManageWiki/extensions (parser hooks) click the CSS option so that we can customize this wiki's appearance. RMV2003 (talk) 15:42, 24 November 2021 (UTC)

Sure! We can be affiliates! :) User:HannahMontanaFan
Awesome, I just added you :D By the way did you enable the CSS extension for this wiki, as the CSS does not work unless it's enabled. RMV2003 (talk) 00:34, 25 November 2021 (UTC)
Oops! I forgot, I've mainly been busy but I will get right to it. UPDATE: Just did it now! User: HannahMontanaFan
For some reason my design changes to common.css and monobook.css didn't go through. Want to ask a steward about this? Also, check out how Nintendo Wiki now looks -- it has a real throwback appearance. I helped DarkMatterMan4500 with designing his wiki as well. :D RMV2003 (talk) 19:08, 26 November 2021 (UTC)
Sure! And I am loving the look, it's a classic (like the 80's and 90's even though that was way before my time) :) User:HannahMontanaFan

hi, are you still around?

Just checking in :) RMV2003 (talk) 23:48, 30 November 2021 (UTC)

I'm still here, I've just been busy with other things but rest assured I am still around! :) User:HannahMontanaFan
Busy with finals? RMV2003 (talk) 00:58, 16 Christmas 2021 (UTC)
Yes! User:HannahMontanaFan


Hold on, why is December listed as Christmas on this wiki (e.g. 1 Christmas 2021). It could be confusing at first to some. RMV2003 (talk) 20:37, 1 Christmas 2021 (UTC)

I did that to make it more unique, The SuperMarioGlitchy4 Wiki once had theirs listed as Christmas as well. That's what inspired me to do it here. User:HannahMontanaFan
Ohhhh I see :) RMV2003 (talk) 22:00, 3 Christmas 2021 (UTC)

two more affiliates

Hi, so I created Smash Bros. Wiki and Pokemon Wiki a few days ago. Also, Nintendo Wiki's url has been updated to but is still on Miraheze. Can they all be affiliates as well? Thank you. :) Also, want to ask Dark Matter Man if Kirby Encyclopedia can also be an affiliate? RMV2003 (talk) 18:09, 14 Christmas 2021 (UTC)

Yes they can! :) User:HannahMontanaFan
Yayyyyyyyyyyyy!!!!!!! :D RMV2003 (talk) 01:45, 15 Christmas 2021 (UTC)

I made a few edits

I just made a few edits. Help pages have not yet been made, but I got rid of the red link as it was bothering me. RMV2003 (talk) 03:53, 27 January 2022 (UTC)

Nice! Sorry I haven't been around lately, just been busy with a bit of work. Once that's cleared though, I will definitely be more active! User:HannahMontanaFan
Actually update I did a lot of help pages. I reused a lot of dead/unused ones from the Final Fantasy Wikia RMV2003 (talk) 17:09, 27 January 2022 (UTC)
Nice Work! :) User:HannahMontanaFan

Fanon namespace

Oh can you please make a Fanon namespace for like flash games and so forth? I'd greatly appreciate that, thank you :D RMV2003 (talk) 15:24, 30 January 2022 (UTC)

Sure! How can I do that again? User:HannahMontanaFan
Go to Special:ManageWiki/namespaces. RMV2003 (talk) 18:15, 1 February 2022 (UTC)
I made an edit, it should be there! User:HannahMontanaFan

wiki activity

Hi, is this wiki still active? I haven't seen edits here in a long while. If you lost interest in developing it, I could become a bureaucrat to try and revive this wiki because I have more ideas how to make it more original. Bawitdaba (talk) 18:14, 24 April 2022 (UTC)

I haven't particularly lost interest in it as of yet, I've just been really busy with other things and it did take a toll on my activity. But sure I could totally give you admin rights and you could help revive the site! :) User:HannahMontanaFan
I am already a temporary administrator -- I was talking about bureaucrat, if that makes sense. Bawitdaba (talk) 01:16, 25 April 2022 (UTC)
Also, Gadgets extension needs to be enabled, as I've added several CSS-related gadgets to this wiki. Bawitdaba (talk) 04:44, 25 April 2022 (UTC)
Sure, I could give you the rights! Also, what happened with Verdana? User:HannahMontanaFan
Ohhhh sorry I must've accidentally overwritten it. One sec Bawitdaba (talk) 10:04, 25 April 2022 (UTC)
Ok it should be back now. Also, I feel a bit bad for removing the time expiration of the rights (come to think of it), as I felt I should've run that past you first. Bawitdaba (talk) 10:21, 25 April 2022 (UTC)
Thank you for the rights Bawitdaba (talk) 10:35, 25 April 2022 (UTC)
No Problem! :) User:HannahMontanaFan

Mariopedia rebrand

Would you be interested in rebranding this wiki to Mariopedia? If you'd like, I even have the domain that I can attach to this Miraheze wiki Bawitdaba (talk) 19:51, April 25, 2022 (UTC)

Sure! We could do that! User:HannahMontanaFan
Do you like some of the gadgets that I've added, like the recent changes refresh and staff highlights? I can make Mariopedia logos just like the Super Mario Wiki one at the top-right Bawitdaba (talk) 12:47, April 26, 2022 (UTC)
They look awesome! :) User:HannahMontanaFan

three settings

is it ok if i request Miraheze to add these three settings to your wiki's localsettings:

$wgDefaultUserOptions['thumbsize'] = 3;

$wgDefaultUserOptions['usenewrc'] = 0;

$wgDefaultUserOptions['rcenhancedfilters-disable'] = 1;

This will switch us back to the old recent changes and fix the issue where your wiki has huge thumbnails. Bawitdaba (talk) 19:02, April 26, 2022 (UTC)

Sure! User:HannahMontanaFan
Again, thank you so much for creating this wiki for me and a few others & allowing us to customize to this extent. An old Mario Wiki (Jorge) user got curious and decided to join (though he'll mainly be observing). Bawitdaba (talk) 05:15, April 27, 2022 (UTC)
That's cool! And no problem, again sorry if I haven't been active as of late. I've been very busy with work and other things and haven't had time to balance multiple sites but I will be sure to edit here whenever I can (which may increase in the future). The site is nearing it's first anniversary so that's also something to look forward to! Again, thanks for your contributions to the site they are most appreciated! :D User:HannahMontanaFan
No prob, we can def look forward to the first anniversary of this great wiki :D Bawitdaba (talk) 12:03, April 27, 2022 (UTC)

mariowiki format

In midst of big changes, i have been adding a lot of the more recent-revision Mario Wiki stuff, including several articles that I wrote & rewrote from there. I've had such a large involvement on to the point where I even added some documentation for infobox templates (like Species infobox) and rewrote categories. Templates like {{ratings}}, {{media}}, {{input}} -- I've already ported those over to several other wikis that I've made (e.g., basically, what i'm saying is that I'm synonymous with the Super Mario Wiki style :P Bawitdaba (talk) 01:19, April 28, 2022 (UTC)

Nice! That's pretty cool, I originally implemented the old ones initially as I preferred the aesthetic although what you made is really cool as well! Also, nice work with the template categories! :D User:HannahMontanaFan
Thank you :) I'm still aiming to preserve the aesthetic Bawitdaba (talk) 12:15, April 28, 2022 (UTC)
How does it look on the Krockhead article? I used our distinct template style and the "classic" one for people who like the Mario Wiki design :) Bawitdaba (talk) 13:13, April 28, 2022 (UTC)
Looks good! You did well! :) Did you get the page from an earlier version or the current one? User:HannahMontanaFan
Sorry, thought I responded... I got it from the current version. I rewrote the entire article on the original Super Mario Wiki Bawitdaba (talk) 23:13, May 1, 2022 (UTC)

Miraheze Gaming Services

Do you want this wiki to be part of Miraheze Gaming Services or do you prefer it to remain separate? Bawitdaba (talk) 23:13, May 1, 2022 (UTC)

If possible. That doesn't sound like a bad idea, I may need to decide on it though. Also, I saw you created the Naming Policy page, nice work! One thing, for the names, I decided to mainly stick with the English names (or English translations) as seen on the policy page as this is an English Wiki. User:HannahMontanaFan
Yeah I was trying to explain that same thing on the Naming page -- I adapted it from Mario Wiki (then again, I did on several other wikis as well) and explained that we go by English speakers' interpretation of the subjects rather than the Japanese, even if the games were originally developed in Japan. I actually added that to the Naming policy. Not to mention there's case-by-case basis when it's obvious when two are either the same thing or different. Know what I mean? Bawitdaba (talk) 23:46, May 1, 2022 (UTC)

The wiki

I been editing your wiki pretty much every day. Also, I hope you don't mind I reused the NSMB template from the Super Mario Wiki (but the coloring is different & I use the distinct style, which I also applied to Yoshi's Island DS and Nintendo DS nav templates as well). I did my best to fix up some of the links, and am glad you managed to fix the rest up (as I was worried about accidentally messing up things). Bawitdaba (talk) 23:00, May 16, 2022 (UTC)

It's okay, you can feel free to use it from there and thanks for fixing up the links, in future to make things easier, you could also use the source from the 2014 version of the page (at the Wayback Machine) which is what I did for most of them but that's entirely up to you! Also, Thanks for the work and you're doing great! :) User:HannahMontanaFan
You're welcome -- I have tried to uphold how you, I, and others have wanted this alternative wiki to be based on Mario Wiki in its earlier days. Actually, when I did Mario's Time Machine, I based it on an older version of the Mario Wiki article from around 2014 but included the historical inaccuracies section. I like the idea of "Mario Cinematic Universe" as well -- did you know enemy family trees go between Mario and Zelda (e.g. Manhandlas are actually a type of Piranha Plant) & there are semi-recurring Mario enemies in Zelda like Thwomp, making them Zelda enemies too, just at a lesser extent. So hopefully you don't mind some of the Zelda stuff that I've been adding (I talk of the main meat, which is Mario,Yoshi,Wario,DK franchises, then the related series/franchises, which as of now are Zelda, SSB, Banjo, and Conker in the extended family). The Legend of Zelda (series) article should describe it quite well. Bawitdaba (talk) 23:44, May 16, 2022 (UTC)
I don't mind actually the more the merrier, that's a pretty interesting fact. I wasn't fully aware of that, there are more examples of Zelda enemies being similar to Mario). Again, Thanks for the effort it really goes a long way! :) HannahMontanaFan
Absolutely, I'm glad to help you out. :) We're an island unto ourselves I feel. Also, I think this wiki has been slowly elevating in Google search, but is still yet to be among one of the first results. Bawitdaba (talk) 01:38, May 17, 2022 (UTC)


I made an article on Poop (recovered from a deleted Mario Wiki article) because, while it might seem off-putting for certain readers and attract spam, it does have relevance to Mario and its related franchises and series. Also, both Conker's Bad Fur Day and Conker: Live & Reloaded are Mature-rated. Should we have an "inappropriate content" template (something like this) and a template that censors swears and other explicit details (but can be clicked on to reveal the uncensored word)? Mario is generally a family-friendly franchise, but we can't deny that there have been a few inappropriate moments within it. What the other Mario wiki does poorly is censor it for family-friendly audiences but still provide a way to see the stuff uncensored. I remember trying to compromise on that a few years ago (I'm not against censorship in the slightest -- I just want to accommodate both types & even did a Conker wiki in the past). Bawitdaba (talk) 14:21, May 20, 2022 (UTC)

Sure, you can feel free to add it but a template at the page's top will do! :) HannahMontanaFan

Current mario wiki

I'm glad you allow me to reuse some of the current revision of Mario Wiki stuff because they have some ongoing proposals to make the site less colorful, and this would include the removal of their DKtable for Donkey Kong-related articles. Building upon that, they are trying to make the use of colors more restrictive. I agree that we should present the content comfortably but not at such a technical level. I made a Rare Ltd. article just now, and I used the latest revision but have been switching it up a bit to make more original for Mariopedia (like how the list table is dark blue like Rare). :) Bawitdaba (talk) 14:58, May 22, 2022 (UTC)

It depends on the scenario really. I know they did not like their old Luigi's Mansion articles because it read too much like a story. It is true that one should keep thing encyclopedic generally (depends on the wiki's rules, for the most part). Example is when they removed info from the Parlor (LM GCN) article in Nov 2012 -- then i think the revision could be more based on from then. Bawitdaba (talk) 15:09, May 22, 2022 (UTC)
Thanks! You are more than welcome to add all the colorful stuff to this wiki. I usually try to go for the earlier versions as the content is more plentiful (at least to me) but if the current version is endangered, that can be used as well. I personally don't have an issue with the story-read pages either, that can be used as well if you choose! HannahMontanaFan
You're welcome -- earlier versions also, imo, provide opportunity to become more original. When they talking about trimming "flowery writing" they accidentally remove info in the process (e.g. in that Parlor article I linked). Bawitdaba (talk) 23:14, May 22, 2022 (UTC)

Species nav templates

I'm thinking we could make a subcategory of navigation templates pertaining to the particular species. For example, {{Snifits}} and {{Pokeys}}. There are characters listed within the species nav templates, but ultimately it pertains to the species themselves. Bawitdaba (talk) 12:06, May 24, 2022 (UTC)

That could work, I previously made a couple myself, sure you can! :) HannahMontanaFan
Thank you for fixing the Goomba one -- I know you know more about Mario and Yoshi-related names than me (especially from making around 800 or so articles on this wiki) so I was going to need your help regardless. There is an underline redirects gadget that I added from MarioWiki that highlights/underlines redirect links (see preferences) so that's sometimes helped me with fixing the naming links around the wiki. Bawitdaba (talk) 12:15, May 25, 2022 (UTC)
No problem and nice! That would come in handy! :D HannahMontanaFan

Special surprise!

Look at the background image that I designed for Mariopedia! In two days, Mario Wiki is going to have their monobook background changed to this, so this will further contribute to the classic MarioWiki-inspired feel of Mariopedia. Bawitdaba (talk) 20:51, May 25, 2022 (UTC)

Looks good! I'm lovin' it! :D HannahMontanaFan
Thank you! :) Bawitdaba (talk) 15:14, June 7, 2022 (UTC)


I restored the PipeProjects from Mario Wiki, which has been abandoned by them since March 2012, on to your wiki. The wiki is quite messy at the moment, so part of why I decided to resurrect it is in hopes that it would organize projects to tidy it up a bit Bawitdaba (talk) 15:14, June 7, 2022 (UTC)

Cool, that could work! :) HannahMontanaFan
I don't know if you've seen, but a lot of content has been in the process of being removed from MarioWiki as of late (like sections in the Mario article, they're voting to remove/trim Game & Watch coverage, and so forth), so a lot of that stuff has been in danger of deletion & I've wanted to preserve the page histories here, if that makes sense. Bawitdaba (talk) 22:53, June 7, 2022 (UTC)
It sure does, if anything seems like it is in danger of being deleted/merged or etc. feel free to add it here! Any information is welcome! :) HannahMontanaFan
Much appreciated. :) You have done me, DarkMatterMan, and others an enormous favor by working so hard to make this wiki a reality. Bawitdaba (talk) 02:05, June 8, 2022 (UTC)
Thanks! :) HannahMontanaFan
No problemoooooo :D Bawitdaba (talk) 12:28, June 8, 2022 (UTC)


No prob if you removed that SMB Encyclopedia part of the template. I think it would be kind of amusing if we listed the name origins of some of the stuff. Like in Trivia section or something we say "the name originated from [x] and [x]" or something Bawitdaba (talk) 00:09, June 11, 2022 (UTC)

Yeah, I'm gonna agree with you on using encyclopedia names. In my opinion, I think that book was unfairly trashed. Paper Jorge (talk)
@Paper Jorge: I own a hard copy of the SMB Encyclopedia. Back in the day I got it a a joke & becaus I wanted to see how much they took from Mario Wiki & I wanted to imagine a MarioWiki in the style of Zelda Wiki and how that would've looked, with citation templates and all (I even imagined a Mario Wiki parodying Zeldapedia -- called Mariopedia -- though the title became a reality here :P). Now even if there's something like name-pulling from MarioWiki that might conflict with other uses of a name (no immediate examples come to mind), I think we can clarify it in the article. Bawitdaba (talk) 01:14, June 11, 2022 (UTC)
That could work, we could list the names in Trivia, I've done a bit of that as you may've seen on the Fire Bar page. Also, I agree Paper Jorge, the book did get of unfair distaste, I got my own copy and while some names were copied, some were also taken from the instruction booklets (like the Super Mario Bros. chapter). HannahMontanaFan

Am I fulfilling your wiki vision?

Slowly but surely this wiki is gradually receiving its own identity Bawitdaba (talk) 02:55, June 13, 2022 (UTC)

Nice work! Yes you sure are! I have also given you permanent admin rights! :) HannahMontanaFan
Thank you I appreciate it :D Are the Mario fandom wikis going alright (I see you also on Mario Kart fandom)? Looks like on Mario Fandom you did some originally written sections for the Magmaargh article, such as Mario Golf: Super Rush Bawitdaba (talk) 11:41, June 13, 2022 (UTC)
No Problem! They're doing pretty well. I've been expanding many of the pages (as well as adding new images), it can be easy and tough deciding what to expand next. I've been on the Mario Kart Wiki for some time now (currently an admin there), there's quite a bit of history of my time on there. HannahMontanaFan
Mario Fandom wiki doesn't have a Baby Cheep article yet, so you might want to create that next I think :) Bawitdaba (talk) 23:17, June 13, 2022 (UTC)
Thanks for the idea! Will do! :) HannahMontanaFan
You are welcome :D Bawitdaba (talk) 00:45, June 14, 2022 (UTC)

Fanon namespace

I saw you mention that Fanon is not allowed, but there is the Fanon namespace (see Mariopedia:Scope). I was just wondering your take on this. Bawitdaba (talk) 12:29, June 14, 2022 (UTC)

Initially (when I first made the site), I considered against having Fanon but having it in separate namespaces should be fine. Just so long as it isn't used outside said namespaces. HannahMontanaFan
This definitely makes sense. I wouldn't want it mixed in with official content either. Bawitdaba (talk) 21:25, June 14, 2022 (UTC)

Hello :)

I'm busy working on creating some navigation templates for some of the Super Mario series games (I already published Super Mario Galaxy one) and am hoping you'll check over them once I'm done. :) Bawitdaba (talk) 18:28, June 23, 2022 (UTC)

I just now made nav templates for {{NSMBW}} and {{NSMB2}}. Bawitdaba (talk) 20:43, June 23, 2022 (UTC)
Nice work! Now it should be easier for users to get from page to page! I also previously created a couple for YIDS and SM64 / SM64DS! HannahMontanaFan
Just in: {{SMG2}} and {{SM3DL}} template created too! :DDDDDDDDD Bawitdaba (talk) 21:49, June 23, 2022 (UTC)
Also, you're welcome I'm happy to help. :) Last nav temp for today: {{NSMBU}}, so now all NSMB titles have a nav template! Bawitdaba (talk) 22:11, June 23, 2022 (UTC)
Nice, Love it! :) HannahMontanaFan
Ty -- is the naming ok for all these templates? I also moved a couple of articles based on some observation with & MarioWikia naming for the articles (I tried taking a close look), so feel free to revert in case I got anything wrong. Bawitdaba (talk) 03:39, June 24, 2022 (UTC)
I haven't got around to modifying those yet but I will when I get the chance, as far as the name changes go, you got most right however I did correct a couple but great job! :) HannahMontanaFan
Thank you, I tried my best :) Bawitdaba (talk) 13:21, June 24, 2022 (UTC)


I remodeled the Chomp article based on the latest MarioWiki revision before it was merged with Chain Chomp. The opening section I restyled by myself, especially to clarify that Chomps and Chain Chomps, while sometimes ambiguous, are separate on distinct occasions. Bawitdaba (talk) 15:13, June 24, 2022 (UTC)

Great Job! I kind of forgot that the page was merged when I created it. :) HannahMontanaFan
Thank you :) And yeah I don't agree with the fact that it was merged. Interesting how a recurring Mario enemy debuted in Zelda, isn't it? Also, I hope you like The Legend of Zelda article that I made. It's from Triforce Wiki (I wrote some parts of it a few years ago), and I added a "Connections to Mario" section. Bawitdaba (talk) 21:45, June 24, 2022 (UTC)
Nice job! You did pretty well there! :) Also, why was it merged?! HannahMontanaFan
Appreciated -- see why I think Zelda can fit into a Mario wiki? The enemy families carry over from Mario to Zelda (not so much the other way around, however). Also, as for why Chomp article was merged on the MarioWiki, see here. I only remembered it just now and remember not agreeing with it Bawitdaba (talk) 22:11, June 24, 2022 (UTC)
Looking at it now, I also disagree with the reasons as well. Also, it is pretty cool to see Mario enemies appear in Zelda as well. Again, Nice work with the page! :) HannahMontanaFan
Appreciated -- a group of folks having disagreements on how certain subjects are handled are part of why we have wikis like this, complete with unique branding and identity. It's kind of like inside one inherently knows that things (e.g. Chomps and Chain Chomps being separate, therefore separate articles). Bawitdaba (talk) 22:36, June 24, 2022 (UTC)

NSMB2 article

ok so I've made an NSMB2 article here, and it based on a July 2014 revision of the Mario Wiki article. How does it look? Bawitdaba (talk) 02:15, June 25, 2022 (UTC)

Looks Good! :) HannahMontanaFan


I was just thinking to myself that we need separate pages for the types of goop. Whenever I see subsections of "Names in other languages" I take that as a sign that the article needs to be split. Bawitdaba (talk) 23:21, June 25, 2022 (UTC)

Thanks! Plus it could really increase what we can put in each of the pages. HannahMontanaFan
I'm still to get to splitting Prankster Comets, Nozzles, and Nozzle boxes into own articles. Bawitdaba (talk) 23:51, June 25, 2022 (UTC)
Those would work as well. I am also for making pages on Invisible Luigi and Metal Wario (from Super Mario 64 DS) as well. For some time, I've had plans to make those pages. HannahMontanaFan
Thank you -- those are forms with a distinct identity, so I'm glad that you're making individual articles for them :) Bawitdaba (talk) 12:13, June 26, 2022 (UTC)
No Problem! :) HannahMontanaFan


While it may seem unnecessary, I founded a complimentary wiki a few days ago called DKpedia, which is like this wiki but focuses particularly on Donkey Kong & related franchises, or stuff within the Mario franchise from the perspective of Donkey Kong (e.g. the DK minigames in Mario Party 7). Hopefully you're cool with that :) Bawitdaba (talk) 00:16, July 9, 2022 (UTC)

Of course I am, it could be used as a sister wiki for this one maybe. :) HannahMontanaFan
Ohhh yea, could we make it so? Thank you :) Then there's also DarkMatter's Luigi's Mansion Wiki Bawitdaba (talk) 11:26, July 9, 2022 (UTC)
Nice! Both wikis can be sister wikis! HannahMontanaFan


Hi, how are some of these America-themed articles that I've made? Particularly the Joe Biden one -- it's not supposed to be political, but he did play Mario Kart Arcade GP DX before in 2021. I just wanted to be sure that I'm not going too far with the coverage. I know you've said "the more the merrier," and I've also enjoyed myself adding our unique country infobox to the United States of America article. I talk about Mario in-universe and in the real world. While Mario is a fictional franchise, it's real in my heart -- some franchises have a way of doing that. Bawitdaba (talk) 16:43, July 11, 2022 (UTC)

That should be fine, as long as it doesn't get too political. Also, I'm the same, I feel it's real in my heart as well. HannahMontanaFan


I think you said you planned to split the different types of goop into their own articles. I got a start on the main type of goop. I used the MarioWiki one as a basis but made sure to distinguish it from graffiti, as the two are not the same thing. Bawitdaba (talk) 20:04, July 15, 2022 (UTC)

Sorry for the late reply, it's a good start, also, we can split the Goop and Graffiti as the two are considerably different substances that Shadow Mario uses. HannahMontanaFan
Yeah they are. If you check the Graffiti article, I did my best to clarify the distinction with Graffiti in its opening section. Bawitdaba (talk) 10:15, July 16, 2022 (UTC)
Nice Work! :) HannahMontanaFan

Banana / Banana Peel / Banana Bunch

I did my best to distinguish their appearances within the main Mario,Yoshi,Wario franchises (DK -- I might do here or on DKpedia, depends). I've been on a roll with distinguishing :) Bawitdaba (talk) 19:37, July 16, 2022 (UTC)

Good Job! The Bananas do function differently in each franchise. :) HannahMontanaFan

Another nav temp

Mind checking accuracy of Template:YI? I just created this navtemp. Bawitdaba (talk) 19:26, August 11, 2022 (UTC)

Sure! HannahMontanaFan
Thank you so much Bawitdaba (talk) 03:11, August 12, 2022 (UTC)
No Problem! :) HannahMontanaFan

Mario Portal

There's new English-translated names for several of the Super Mario 64 enemies, among other pages, on the Mario Portal. Would this affect how we handle naming on this wiki? Bawitdaba (talk) 10:28, August 13, 2022 (UTC)

I will have to check the page, for some reason, the page won't load for me. Is it possible to show some screenshots? Thanks! :) UPDATE: Just checked it on, I would only use those names if there is no other way. Maybe they could work as a last resort. HannahMontanaFan

Chomp / Chain Chomp

So I made article on Big Chain Chomp & expanded the Chomp Shark article. Although some would want to say otherwise, Chomp Sharks are essentially identified separately from Big Chain Chomps. Sometimes Japanese names would want to call ordinary Chomps "Chain Chomps," and there's been lot of confusion over this. The way I go about it is simply "if it has a chain, then it's a Chain Chomp; if it does not, then it's a Chomp" -- it's just like how if Mario jumps on a Paratroopa it becomes a regular Koopa Troopa, know what I mean? Bawitdaba (talk) 12:40, August 19, 2022 (UTC)

Nice work! They are technically separate (eg. the Big Chain Chomps in Super Princess Peach are clearly different from the Chomp Sharks from Yoshi's Island DS.) but yeah, I know what you mean. It doesn't necessarily make them the same enemy just because they share the same name (like we've seen enemies share the same names in English but they're still technically different). Good Work again! :) HannahMontanaFan
I actually ended up splitting the Super Princess Peach enemy from Chomp Shark upon closer inspection. Thank you for appreciating my work by the way -- have you seen the Spiny Cheep Cheep article? I made sure Puffer Fish gets own article... it's very clearly not a Spiny Cheep Cheep. Do you also see why I decided to make Mario Advance 4 its own navtemp? Also, I actually hav a fair collection of guides for naming-related purposes, esp if there's no present scans online Bawitdaba (talk) 13:08, August 20, 2022 (UTC)
No Problem! The ones in SPP are clearly regular Big Chain Chomps especially as they are referred to as such in-game, also yes I have seen the Spiny Cheep Cheep page. It looks great! And yeah, the Puffer Fish is obviously not a Spiny Cheep Cheep as they don't look or even act the same, they're two different types of fish. Also, the SMA4 Template looks great, the game is fit for it's own template! :) HannahMontanaFan

Square, Sega, and Rare news

Hi, so I managed to adopt Squarewiki, as well as Rarewiki (back in June) on Fandom. I just thought you'd think that's cool -- Square did a Mario RPG title before, among a few other things. There's a Birdo article on my Square Enix wiki, for example.

Oh and awesome news -- I began a Sega Wiki a couple of days ago, and it's based on the mariowiki. Here's the Mario and Sonic the Hedgehog articles, to list two examples. Bawitdaba (talk) 17:04, September 2, 2022 (UTC)

Sorry for the late reply, nice! We could partner those wikis with this one! HannahMontanaFan (talk) 23:08, September 3, 2022 (UTC)
Will do Bawitdaba (talk) 14:01, September 4, 2022 (UTC)

Permission for something

Hi, so I was wondering if we could have a Yoshi: and Wario: namespace, even DK: perhaps, and corresponding templates. What this would mean is, for instance, if the article were Yoshi:Shy Guy, it would provide information on Shy Guys from the perspective of the Yoshi franchise & focus on filling in the sections of those who want to mainly focus on their role within the Yoshi franchise + cite Mario franchise if their appearances based on, let's say, Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island found its way back into the main Mario franchise. I drafted up a Shy Guy article from the perspective of Yoshi franchise, if you'd like to take a look. Bawitdaba (talk) 17:43, September 3, 2022 (UTC)

That sounds like a good idea, it could really help this wiki stand out more! HannahMontanaFan (talk) 08:21, September 4, 2022 (UTC)
I'll get to work on it :) Bawitdaba (talk) 14:07, September 4, 2022 (UTC)
Take a look at Yoshipedia:Shy Guy again -- you're going to love the unique customizations that I did for the Yoshipedia namespace alone :D Bawitdaba (talk) 17:35, September 4, 2022 (UTC)
Nice work! You really did well there! :) HannahMontanaFan (talk) 11:39, September 5, 2022 (UTC)
Thank's one on Monty Mole (sry if the Shy Guy one look unfinished -- it was testing & still need more filled in). Bawitdaba (talk) 12:14, September 5, 2022 (UTC)
Good Job! There's always time, we could fill the missed parts in. HannahMontanaFan (talk) 23:09, September 5, 2022 (UTC)

I introduced a person to this place

I brought along the Monty Mole dude Bawitdaba (talk) 13:02, September 5, 2022 (UTC)

Nice Work! :) HannahMontanaFan (talk) 23:09, September 5, 2022 (UTC)


Hi, I was wondering if the Chubby page should be deleted? It was only a name given to Monty Mole in the Mario Kart 64 instruction booklet and not really much beyond that. I am pretty sure it was just referring to Chubby as just the Monty Moles in the general area. Also, I don’t think the Monty Moles in the one Mario Kart DS mission were meant to be Chubby, probably just generic Monty Moles. So yeah, I don’t usually want to delete pages, but this page can have all of its info on the Mario Kart 64 section of the main Monty Mole page. So is it cool if we delete it? MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 16:45, September 5, 2022 (UTC)

I initially thought the same but upon hindsight (and analysis from an old friend (BananasAreAnnoying)), the instruction booklet does refer to Chubby as one specific Monty Mole rather than that being the name for his whole species so that's why there's a page on him as well. HannahMontanaFan (talk) 23:09, September 5, 2022 (UTC)
I know, but the page is not really all that needed cause it was just a nickname given to a singular Monty Mole in the instruction booklet (and considering there is multiple we do not even know which Monty Mole is Chubby to begin with). I personally think that the Chubby page can be removed since all the info for Chubby is already on the main Monty Mole page. If we do keep the Chubby page, mind cleaning up the info for it and removing the Mario Kart DS stuff, since we don’t even know if Chubby returns in Mario Kart DS. And if you were wondering, no other official sources besides the instruction booklet even refers to any of the Monty Moles as Chubby. MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 01:05, September 6, 2022 (UTC)

Things coming together

Things really are coming together for us, aren't they? We have a little mini-community here already, we are coming up with new ideas, and so forth Bawitdaba (talk) 12:13, September 9, 2022 (UTC)

Indeed they are! Let's keep this good thing going! :D HannahMontanaFan (talk) 21:40, September 9, 2022 (UTC)

Monty Mole stuff

Hi, I was wondering if there is any Monty Mole species stuff I can do right now? Also what is up with the name of Podoboo/Lava Bubble? MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 19:37, September 10, 2022 (UTC)

You seem to've done pretty well so far so good job there! As for your second question, what do you mean? HannahMontanaFan (talk) 22:34, September 10, 2022 (UTC)
I mean what is with the weird usage of having Podoboo being named Lava Bubble or something on Super Mario Wiki but other wikis call them Podoboo. I think Super Mario Maker called them lava bubbles to. Also, know anyone who can translate Japanese or wanna help find someone who can? I want help translating the Monty Mole manga stuff. MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 22:40, September 10, 2022 (UTC)
Also what do you think the Monty Mole strip here meant to mean?: MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 22:41, September 10, 2022 (UTC)
I'm not too sure why the Super Mario Wiki did it as that, they did have it as Podoboo back in 2012 (and even before then) but they renamed it for some reason in late January 2013 (this was obviously before Super Mario Maker even came out). Super Mario Maker did use a couple simplified names like it called the Blurp (as well as Deep Cheep) a Cheep Cheep, the Strech a Boo, and the Starman a Star. Other wikis (like this one and Mario Wikia prefer to use the traditional names). The names "Podoboo" and "Lava Bubble" appear to be used interchangeably with eachother as the names "Paratroopa" and "Koopa Paratroopa" are. As for the comic, looks like some kind of riddle, I'm not 100% sure. HannahMontanaFan (talk) 23:44, September 10, 2022 (UTC)
What about my Japanese translation question? Oh and anything Monty Mole related you want to talk about or discuss? Oh and should the Super Mario-kun fall variant enemies have pages? MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 23:57, September 10, 2022 (UTC)
Hi, do you know anyone who can help translate Japanese? MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 02:41, September 17, 2022 (UTC)
I just messaged my old friend BananasAreAnnoying on the Mario Kart Wiki, here's hoping he responds. If not, he will probably see the message when he returns. I'm sure he'll help out, he knows a lot about this kind of stuff! HannahMontanaFan (talk) 05:50, September 17, 2022 (UTC)
Oh cool thanks. MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 14:54, September 17, 2022 (UTC)
Oh I was wondering where you messaged BananasAreAnnoying and also when was the last time they were online? Just wondering. MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 06:37, September 18, 2022 (UTC)
I messaged him on the Mario Kart Wiki (you probably saw that) and the last time he was online from what I can see was on November 20, 2021 (four days before I returned). He does tend to take periodic lengthly breaks from what I can see so I have a feeling he'll be back. HannahMontanaFan (talk) 08:35, September 18, 2022 (UTC)

AUS guide?

There's differences within the Australian guide for NSMB Wii? Bawitdaba (talk) 11:24, September 25, 2022 (UTC)

There's several. A couple examples include (as I mentioned in the summary earlier) that the Mechakoopas are called "Mechakoopas" unlike the American version where they're called "Windup Koopas", there are also a couple other differences too such as the "Sky Ships" being called "Airships" (and "Giant Airships" on one page), the "Propellorhead Mushroom" being called the "Propellor Mushroom", and so on. I purchased my guide from Australia in early 2010 and I noticed a couple differences when I brought another copy while in the USA a year or so later. HannahMontanaFan (talk) 13:20, September 25, 2022 (UTC)
Oh so you're an Aussie? That's pretty cool! Australian gaming needs better documentation, as it's often overlooked because English language like American gaming (whereas UK gaming often has different western European languages present on it as an option as well). I know for a fact Pokemon Crystal in Australia removed gambling references. Bawitdaba (talk) 13:25, September 25, 2022 (UTC)
Was there any Monty Mole species differences in the Australian guide or was it the same in both regions? Also, the only Monty Mole species differences that happened regionally from my knowledge is the European version of Paper Mario: Sticker Star calling the wrenches that Rocky Wrench throw as spanners (though I am curious if the big wrenches they throw in Sticker Star and Color Splash have a name). The only official English Monty Mole stuff I found not from America were some descriptions from the Nintendo Official Magazine from the UK. MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 14:50, September 25, 2022 (UTC)
Sorry for the late reply, yes for the most part the Australian version appears to be copied from the British English versions and yes we could add the stuff mentioned to the article, I own Australian and American versions for most games so I could point out several regional differences between games in the articles. And yes, I am from Australia, I also have residence in the USA as well (but it's mainly in and out) which is how I managed to get some of the USA versions as well (like for example, I own both the American and Australian versions of Paper Mario: Sticker Star and there's more regional differences than you'd think). HannahMontanaFan (talk) 22:57, September 25, 2022 (UTC)
Ok cool, mind helping add some descriptions of Monty Mole species from guidebooks into the profile and statistics sections/pages if that is cool with you? Also, what differences did Rocky Wrench have in the Australian version of Sticker Star (like did the wrench sticker have a different description)? Speaking of that game, is there any official name for the big wrenches that Rocky Wrench throws in Sticker Star and Color Splash? MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 23:05, September 25, 2022 (UTC)
They're probably considered larger wrenches by the game but in real life, those appear to be spanners (like how their common weapon is an actual wrench as opposed to a spanner). HannahMontanaFan (talk) 23:20, September 25, 2022 (UTC)
Well I meant like do the bigger wrenches have an official name in Sticker Star or Color Splash? Also I am pretty sure that the standard wrenches were called spanners in the British English version of the game but I do not know, mind checking for me and also seeing if they have different descriptions? Also, in Paper Mario: The Origami King, the origami Rocky Wrench throw spanners which are just like yellow colored wrenches that are thrown in an arch like the hammers that Hamer Bros. throw. Anyways also about my previous question about helping add Monty Mole species descriptions from various guidebooks (you can also use the Australian descriptions to)? Speaking of which, did the NSMBW Prima guide have a different description for Monty Mole and Rocky Wrench? MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 23:25, September 25, 2022 (UTC)
Another quick question, do you own Mario Strikers Charged? If so, mind helping provide a screenshot that shows like Monty Mole’s skeleton (since their skeleton can technically be seen when Monty Mole is thrown into the electric fence)? MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 22:21, September 26, 2022 (UTC)
I recently purchased a copy of the game but haven't got around to playing it yet but when I do, I will check that out. HannahMontanaFan (talk) 05:09, September 27, 2022 (UTC)
Alright cool, also mind helping add more descriptions from guidebooks in the Monty Mole species pages? MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 05:11, September 27, 2022 (UTC)

Propeller Shy Guy split

Are you cool with Propeller Shy Guys being split from Fly Guys? Bawitdaba (talk) 00:58, October 3, 2022 (UTC)

Yeah, they seem different enough to warrant a page split. I felt the same with like big Monty Mole and Mega Monty Mole since the two felt completely different and the latter is confirmed to be artificially enlarged by Kamek and the former seems natural. Saying Mega Monty Mole is big Monty Mole could also apply for Big Montgomery who was also a standard Monty Mole enlarged by Kamek. Also, I have been recently rewriting some sections on some of the Monty Mole species pages to make them sound better and to make them more unique from the Super Mario Wiki, what do you think on them? Any other sections I could help rewrite to? Also can the Wiggler pages be updated since they feel a bit rough and some pages don’t really talk about more recent appearances past like the early-mid 2010s appearances. MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 02:37, October 3, 2022 (UTC)
Yes those can be split, they have several differences enough to warrant a split just as the Mega Piranha Plants and Piranhacus Giganticus do as well as the aforementioned Mega Monty Moles and Big Monty Moles. Also, yes the Wiggler pages can be updated. HannahMontanaFan (talk) 08:10, October 3, 2022 (UTC)
Cool, also are you willing to help provide a screenshot for Monty Mole being electrocuted in Mario Strikers Charged since I seen nothing online showing that animation for Monty Mole. MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 21:45, October 3, 2022 (UTC)

some original discoveries

iirc you love the New Super Mario Bros. series titles. I made a page on the Balloon Racing minigame from New Super Mario Bros., and I discovered quite a bit of unique things if you want to take a look. Bawitdaba (talk) 18:00, October 4, 2022 (UTC)

Sorry for the late reply, the page looks awesome. It's bigger than the one the SMW has. I remember playing the minigame heaps back in 2008 and not knowing how to play it until later. :P HannahMontanaFan (talk) 06:20, October 5, 2022 (UTC)
Oh wow, you did? So a nice throwback? :O :DDDDDDD Bawitdaba (talk) 11:08, October 5, 2022 (UTC)
Also HM Fan, it still has been a while and we found nobody who can help translate Japanese, mind continuing to find someone to help? MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 22:16, October 5, 2022 (UTC)
Oh also, were there ever any regional differences for the Monty Mole species in any of the games or guidebooks? MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 22:34, October 6, 2022 (UTC)
@Bawitdaba Indeed so! :) @MontyMoleLoreMaster Not yet but I will keep a lookout for them. HannahMontanaFan (talk) 00:06, October 7, 2022 (UTC)
Cool, also do you mind adding more Monty Mole species descriptions to the pages from like various guidebooks you own? Also, do you mind still helping find someone who can help translate Japanese since BananasAreAnniying has been inactive for like nearly a year? MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 00:51, October 7, 2022 (UTC)
Also HM Fan, which Mario guidebooks do you own that are games which feature Monty Moles (regional difference ones can be counted to). MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 04:03, October 10, 2022 (UTC)


Hi, I was wondering Grinder and Ukiki are considered separate species? Grinders were called Ukiki in Yoshi’s New Island. Also, is Play Nintendo a creditable source since I found them referring to the Presenters from Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga as Monty Moles. Proof: MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 07:18, October 11, 2022 (UTC)

They look similar but have slight differences, not to mention that the Grinders act slightly differently (along with their relatives the Seedy Sallys and Short Fuses). Nintendo Power did state that Grinders and Ukikis are related (but didn't say that they're the same). It could've possibly been a naming oversight (which tends to happen sometimes) like how several guides have mistakingly named the Sledge Bros. as Sumo Bros. As for your other question, I left a reply to that on Wikia (or Fandom). HannahMontanaFan (talk) 09:45, October 11, 2022 (UTC)

King Boo

Okay, so I heavily redid both the King Boo and King Boo (Luigi's Mansion series) articles & tried to be extra careful not to mix up or remove anything you added. Not too long ago I found that they deleted information from the (earlier this year). It took me a few hours to sort through all the info, and I essentially wrote most of the General information from the ground-up. Hope this helps. Bawitdaba (talk) 00:58, October 14, 2022 (UTC)

Wait so what happened with all the deleted info? Also, what makes the Luigi Mansion King Boo different from the main King Boo? MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 01:09, October 14, 2022 (UTC)
I took the info deleted & rewrote for this wiki. Also, you'll have to ask HMfan, although i do get a hunch that the King Boo from LM series is different -- or at least a standalone counterpart -- of the main King Boo Bawitdaba (talk) 01:31, October 14, 2022 (UTC)
Do they have different names in other languages? MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 01:37, October 14, 2022 (UTC)
@Bawitdaba Nice work! You did extremely well there! :) @MontyMoleLoreMaster Whilst looking similar, the two King Boos are drastically different in appearance (not to mention the crowns they wear are different as well). Additionally, the regular King Boo's personality is no different to that of a regular Boo (he's only stronger) while the LM King Boo is far more evil and is willing to put his own kind at danger just to destroy Luigi. Also, it is shown in the LM games that King Boo is trapped in a painting and he is shown to've escaped to finish what he started shortly before the events of the sequel. If he really did escape just after the events of LM1 (only to somehow escape again even though he was said to already have) what's to stop him from doing exactly what he was doing in the LM games, why with the sudden shift in goals? The regular King Boo doesn't really go anywhere beyond standard villainy and he's merely helping Bowser in most cases where as the LM King Boo goes way beyond that (in fact, he is considered pure evil as well, not to mention that Bowser would never let a pure evil work for him). Additionally, in Mario Kart Tour, Lakitu refers to the LM King Boo as "The King Boo of Luigi's Mansion" rather than a separate outfit like the other character reskins. Additionally, by Nintendo Power and even Nintendo themselves, there hasn't been any indication that the two King Boos are the same (much like how the SMS King Boo is often treated as a separate entity) so that's why they're split. HannahMontanaFan (talk) 22:33, October 14, 2022 (UTC)
Earlier today I did a Sega Wiki article on King Boo (its Mario & Sonic appearances), though mentioned both on the same page as only one King Boo appear in M&S series but to preserve context of how the Luigi's Mansion King Boo debuted before the general King Boo. not to mention King Boo specifically wanting to rival Luigi in M&S Olympic Winter Games. I know it not on Mariopedia (though I did reuse some my writing from here), but I figured you'd be interested in the approach. Bawitdaba (talk) 22:59, October 14, 2022 (UTC)
@HannahMontanaFan Thanks for answering my question. I also had some questions I asked on your message wall in the Fandom Mario Wiki so do you mind answering those questions? Also, should the moles from Rhythm and Bruise from Super Mario Party get their own page? They are much different from the standard Monty Mole since they are like a plastic version of them. Also, also, does this Wiki primarily use PAL names for some species, just wondering. Also, were there ever any unique PAL region names for certain Monty Mole species or stuff revolving around them? MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 23:11, October 14, 2022 (UTC)

Fawful Express screenshots

Hi, sometime can you provide some screenshots for the Fawful Express in both the original and remake of Mario & Luigi Bowser's Inside Story? Also, can you make sure said screenshots are also high quality? Thanks. MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 05:57, October 19, 2022 (UTC)

Hi, are you going to help with the Fawful Express screenshots soon? MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 00:43, October 20, 2022 (UTC)

I know prefer older revisions

I can see why you prefer those (some of the newer revisions have too much in-line Japanese naming references, like the Koopalings article, when they could go in paragraphs instead). But when I reused the latest revision of the Koopalings article, do you believe I know what I'm doing? I trimmed out some of the excessive references in the Bowser article, in case you've missed. Also, seeing as you liked the King Boo work that I did, I figured you'd also appreciate how I've done my best to properly combine all the Mario and Bowser general information that was deleted on the other wiki, as it can be quite the effort at times. Bawitdaba (talk) 13:11, October 19, 2022 (UTC)

They also like merging and removing stuff for no reason (and I heard you mention they ruined the Mega Mole manga sections recently). I usually get info from older revisions sometimes (usually back when I was on the wiki, but I don’t go like too far since there is the stuff like when they call Undergrunts as Monty Mole species and think Rocky Wrench is unrelated in the older revisions that makes my blood boil sometimes. They also used the proven illegitimate source Mario Portal like it is a creditable source for names. Also what do you think of this cause this part of the wiki is really bad in my opinion: MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 14:44, October 19, 2022 (UTC)
Update: I checked the Mega Mole summary and I can tell you how horrible it is. They removed the entirety of Mega Mole’s appearance in the Chocolate Island 4 themed chapter which was a pretty notable part of Mega Mole’s appearance in that volume (prior to that, he treated that section like it was something that came right after the Valley of Bowser 1 chapter but in reality it was like a completely separate chapter). Besides that, it isn’t AS bad as that horrible Monty Mole manga section rewrite, but it just feels like the same sections only with neutered info. Is it just me, or is the Super Mario Wiki too afraid of people not handling long pages that actually have good info and think that the readers are just babies who can’t handle anything that isn’t summarized and butchered. That is what I was planning with the MarioPedia Monty Mole sections, where I expand on the info and not sugar coat or dumb down stuff (that is also why I do a lot of rewrites of some sections or pages to make them sound more natural). I was also initially shocked with that stupid merge they did to the Glorpedo page when I checked the wiki to help get info for making the Glorpedo page for this wiki (since it wasn’t even there when I first saw that page). I hate how the Super Mario Wiki went in shambles and did stupid merges that don’t make sense, summarizing and dumbing down well written sections due to "flowery writing," and sourcing unreliable sources like the English Mario Portal. Anyways, I am also wondering if the enlarged Monty Moles in Wiggler Park in Mario Golf: World Tour are meant to be big Monty Moles or just a separate enlarged Monty Moles (hell, they could just be normal sized Monty Moles that just look bigger due to the character being shrunk or something like with Mario Party DS)? Also what do you guys think of the recent trash Mega Mole manga section summarization that the wiki did recently? MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 14:59, October 19, 2022 (UTC)
Small bonus addition: I just remembered that the wiki treated Lava Lotus as comparable and not a relative to Piranha Plant DESPITE NINTENDO POWER LITERALLY CALLING THEM A RELATIVE TO PIRANHA PLANT. That is like if Ragumo wasn’t considered a Monty Mole relative on that wiki despite the official sources that confirm that they are. MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 15:04, October 19, 2022 (UTC)
"afraid of people not handling long pages that actually have good info and think that the readers are just babies who can’t handle anything that isn’t summarized and butchered" Not just you -- I've been saying this myself. I understand page length issues, but info removal is definitely not a way to go about it. Bawitdaba (talk) 16:10, October 19, 2022 (UTC)
Yeah true, trimming down some unneeded info is fine, but removing important events and entire appearances because of bad perspective is dumb. I don’t even think the people who removed all the stuff from the manga sections in the Monty Mole species pages even read the manga in the first place (and are just making poor assumptions). I was wondering, what do you think is the worst thing the Super Mario Wiki has done (both Monty Mole species and not)? Also, did you check the Undergrunt talk page on the Super Mario Wiki cause it is really bad? Any other opinions on what I said. MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 16:27, October 19, 2022 (UTC)
Convo seems to be getting pretty long here -- I have read the Undergrunt talk page, tho I still don't fully understand the situation (as I'm not as much an expert on it as you) Bawitdaba (talk) 16:33, October 19, 2022 (UTC)
Oh ok I can explain. So I made a proposal on seeing if the wiki still thinks the Undergrunts were related to Monty Moles or not. And for some reason most of the people treated it like they were related and had absolutely no solid evidence on them being related (since Undergrunts basically have nothing in common with the Monty Mole species and have no official confirmation on them being the same species). Whenever I made like a solid point, they said something dumb and yet people for some reason more people thought Undergrunts were related to Monty Moles, despite the nonexistent proof. I also don’t know why, but they treated related and comparable like they meant the same thing (which I am pretty sure they don’t). So with this added context, what do you think about the proposal? MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 17:07, October 19, 2022 (UTC)
As i said, I don't know much about Undergrunt and Monty Mole, but I take your word for it because you're the Monty Mole expert Bawitdaba (talk) 17:19, October 19, 2022 (UTC)
Ok fair, any bad edits that the wiki has done that you want to mention? MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 17:36, October 19, 2022 (UTC)
No, and it's probably not a good idea to mention any because I don't want us to dwell on the community there (I'm already uncomfortable about the lengthy response I made on your talk page). Bawitdaba (talk) 17:57, October 19, 2022 (UTC)
That's the primary reason I use the earlier versions of the pages, 2013 was when I feel that the site was at it's greatest (and most informative and expansive), after 2015, I feel it started to drop downward in terms of information and it got worse from there (I witnessed some of the downsizing during my time there in 2016). Also, nice work with the Mario and Bowser page edits, also, I kind of see what you're saying MMLM, stuff like that can be a bit irritating (when they unnecessarily merge pages and remove info and such) in fact, I touched upon that in my blog post I made about the Super Mario Wiki a few years ago. And yeah, I remember them talking about "flowery writing" during my time there, like they're just downsizing the info and making the page less informative. And also, as you mentioned Bawitdaba, from what I can see, the page that has the most info is the one that will attract more viewers, that's why when I make pages, I've been making them as expansive as possible. The Glorpedo merge wasn't the only one they did as well, they also merged the Chain-Link and the Fences from the 2D games despite the two being clearly different along with the uncessary page moves (such as renaming "Ball 'n' Chain" to "Spinner" despite the latter name being in only one (rather unreliable) source, the NSMBU Prima Guide, and later sources (such as the Prima Guides for MK8 and MK8D) using the traditional name) and even ignoring viable sources such as the Prima Guide for MKW as well as the Nintendo Power Magazines (and even some of the guides such as the SMB3 Guide), there's more noteworthy factors but the list goes on. HannahMontanaFan (talk) 22:51, October 19, 2022 (UTC)
Actually with that last sentence you said, I am honestly curious about examples of that happening. I know that the wiki puts Lava Lotus as comparable to Piranha Plant DESPITE NINTENDO POWER CLEARLY SAYING THAT THEY ARE A RELATIVE TO THEM. I also find it funny how the Super Smash Bros. Brawl trophy for Grand Goomba clearly says that they are completely different from the New Super Mario Bros. Goomba boss. Also, I am extremely curious on your opinion on the older revisions on the Monty Mole species pages, since at that time they incorrectly treated the Undergrunt species like they were 100% Monty Mole species despite the two mole species being completely different. I also know they treated Rocky Wrench like they were not a Monty Mole species despite them saying that Undergrunts were Monty Mole species. Anyways, I would like to hear your opinion on the older revisions of the Monty Mole species pages cause I am genuinely curious. MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 23:00, October 19, 2022 (UTC)
I actually do check edit history when reusing or do my best to make sure I don't accidentally erase any notes. Actually, while I have done a lot here, part of it is me trying to clean up and fill in some of the maintenance errors around the place (as I have several other wikis to tend to) and help this wiki become more successful (not to mention helping out MMLoreMaster). Then there's several articles I recovered from Wayback, such as Elephant, Florida, Kansas & writing some original stuff like Xbox. And then there's also me enjoying myself, like when I styled RPG infoboxes after FFWikia's old ones or the infoboxes after Zeldapedia's (before they closed in 2019) as sometimes the curiosity of "oh how would this look like on a Mario Wiki?" Bawitdaba (talk) 01:08, October 20, 2022 (UTC)
Cool to hear, I also try making the Monty Mole species pages have as much info as possible and also restoring all the stuff the Super Mario Wiki removed for no reason. I also made pages on unique Monty Mole characters/species like the Golden Monty Moles from Mario Party 6 and the Ghost Monty Moles from volumes 4 and 55 of Super Mario-kun. MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 01:24, October 20, 2022 (UTC)

The big edits

Hi, just wanted to apologize for if some my edits, like the Princess Peach one, are too big. A lot of info has been removed as of late, so I felt the need to preserve it here Bawitdaba (talk) 01:14, October 22, 2022 (UTC)

I don’t mind big edits so it is fine. Also you do have a good point. Sometime, can more of the enemy species pages be cleaned up? MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 01:24, October 22, 2022 (UTC)
It’s all good, preserving information is always a good thing! Feel free to add any more info that has been removed or may be in danger of being removed! :) HannahMontanaFan (talk) 05:51, October 22, 2022 (UTC)
Hi, I was wondering if you were working on helping explain every single Monty Mole species related mistake done in the Super Mario Wiki (both older revisions and newer revisions). Sorry if I come off as a little annoying. MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 06:09, October 22, 2022 (UTC)

Old Mario Wiki Monty Mole stuff

Hi, I was wondering what you thought of the old Super Mario Wiki revisions of the Monty Mole species pages (since you said that you liked most of the older revisions). The reason I am asking this is because the older revisions for the Monty Mole species had plenty of errors and I wanted to hear your opinion on it. MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 22:47, October 30, 2022 (UTC)

I can name a couple; really early on, due to sharing the same name, both the Monty Mole and the Flower Fields Monty Mole from Paper Mario were merged in the same page (but they were later split in late 2012, in January 2013, the page was retitled to "Monty Mole (Paper Mario)" but was changed to "Monty Mole (green)" in early 2016 and then in April 2020, the title was changed back to "Monty Mole (Flower Fields)". They even listed Major Burrows as a notable member of the Monty Moles despite the fact that we've established that he is not apart of the Monty Mole species but rather the Undergrunt species which are very different, they even listed "Whacka" from the Paper Mario games as a Monty Mole relative despite him sharing no similarities, not to mention the Undergrunt / Undergrunt Gunner similarity you brought up earlier. The page doesn't mention any similarity between the Monty Moles and Rocky Wrenches (but yet treats the Undergrunts like they're totally related (when they're not)), they also got the error with how all the Monty Moles were referred to as Chubbies in MK64 despite the instruction booklet applying that name for one specific Monty Mole rather than the whole species. There was also the Presenter thing you pointed out. I'm not sure if the Drill Mole is related or not but I know for a fact Mole Folk and Mukumukus are incredibly different but yet they're still listed as relatives despite the latter having the appearance of a SQUIRREL and the only similarity being their attack patterns but even then, it's somewhat. Despite all this, the biggest error I felt was how they listed Rocky Wrench as a mere relative while listing the Undergrunts as an actual SUB-SPECIES. Here is the page if you want to read the whole thing HannahMontanaFan (talk) 00:18, October 31, 2022 (UTC)
Yeah the old Super Mario Wiki unfairly treated Rocky Wrench dirty for literally no reason yet treated the Undergrunts like they were 100% totally Monty Mole species (I also recall in the old revisions that they no joke said Rocky Wrench was unrelated, despite having far more similarities to Monty Moles then the Undergrunts). Not to mention the fact that for the longest time, the unrelated SMG Monty was treated the exact same as Rocky Wrench despite having literally nothing in common with Rocky Wrench besides throwing wrenches. Like why did the old Super Mario Wiki have to treat the Undergrunts like they were 100% meant to be Monty Mole species, despite literally having no connection at all, no similar names, designs, or attack patterns, everything the Undergrunt species did felt nothing like what the Monty Mole species did. The Undergrunts are like on the same league as like other moles unrelated to Monty Moles like the Moles in Super Mario RPG snd Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker, I seriously do not get why many people had to treat the Undergrunts like they were Monty Mole species when there was nothing unique about them that even hinted at the possibility. Also, the name "Drill Mole" is probably an incorrect conjectural name for Ragumo. Speaking of which, yes, Ragumo is a confirmed relative to Monty Mole (yet even today the actual source that said downright that they were a relative said that it wasn’t defiant he because of it saying it in a shocked manner. Personally, I think it was stating they were a relative, it was likely just saying that as like as a shocking reveal. Super Mario-kun also deliberately redesigned Ragumo in volume 6 to look like Monty Mole). I can kind of understand Flower Fields Monty Mole being merged with the regular ones (even though they have different fur colors, they still share the same name but only stronger), but Presenetr I don’t get. They look completely unique and look more like Mega Mole then Monty Mole, so I have no idea why they were treated the exact same as a normal Monty Mole for so long (although to be fair, I did recently discover the Monty Moles in remake were not Presenters but this was way before the remake anyways so yeah). Lastly, I wanted to mention that the Super Mario Wiki still somewhat thinks the Undergrunts are Monty Mole species (proof: Anyways, what do you think about all of this? MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 22:13, October 31, 2022 (UTC)
Also, a small misconception I know is that I saw two people think the Flower Moles from Mario & Rabbids: Sparks of Hope were Monty Mole variants, but actually they aren’t. MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 22:13, October 31, 2022 (UTC)
That could be added, it is quite silly how they treated the Rocky Wrench one way but the Undergrunt (who's completely different) another way. HannahMontanaFan (talk) 04:08, November 2, 2022 (UTC)
Oh ok, you cool with adding the misconceptions we listed here? MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 04:34, November 2, 2022 (UTC)
Sure! HannahMontanaFan (talk) 22:24, November 2, 2022 (UTC)
Thanks, also weren’t airships spelt differently in the Australian version of the New Super Mario Bros. Wii Prima Guidebook? Also, was the Monty Mole and Rocky Wrench section in the enemies page for the Australian New Super Mario Bros. Wii Prima guidebook different from the American version or is it the exact same? MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 22:33, November 2, 2022 (UTC)
Yes, they were labeled as "Sky Ships" in the USA Guide and in the AUS Guide as "Giant Airships" (or "Airships" on most other pages), from what I can see, the Monty Mole / Rocky Wrench description is similar in both versions. HannahMontanaFan (talk) 04:30, November 3, 2022 (UTC)
I really liked the two sections you added on the list of misconceptions page. Is it cool if you add images of the misconceptions to (like screenshots and stuff)? Also, you really found all of those incorrect names from the English Mario Portal being from unofficial sources (like old revisions of the Fandom Mario Wiki and Super Mario Wiki)? MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 00:12, November 4, 2022 (UTC)
Also, is it cool if you make a Mario Portal page on the MarioPedia that details every single error that it has done (like what the Super Mario Wiki did for the Super Mario Bros. Encyclopedia)? MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 00:14, November 4, 2022 (UTC)
Thanks! I could add several images, some of the incorrect names from the English Mario portal were also taken from both old and new versions on the Super Mario Wiki (several of which were derived from the NSMBU Prima Guide which we've established is unreliable), some names used were also not the correct games used in the game in question (such as naming the Swoopers, Swoops in Super Mario World section despite their name in that game clearly being "Swooper" in that game according to the Guide, Nintendo Power, and even the game itself) and then there are some names which are just either outright false or merely lost in translation like Spinecone or Plurp. Yes I could make a page listing the errors on the English Mario Portal. HannahMontanaFan (talk) 04:19, November 4, 2022 (UTC)
Cool, I am excited to see the screenshots and the errors for Mario Portal. Also, are you down with making a Monty Mole quotes subpage? Also for the weird Mega Monty Mole/big Monty Mole merge, from what I saw on early revisions of the big Monty Mole page, it just kind of happened randomly for no reason and it was just kept. MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 04:49, November 4, 2022 (UTC)
Also have you seen the YouTube videos that treated Major Burrows like an ordinary Monty Mole, despite clearly looking different and having nothing in common with them? Could one of those YouTube videos be a good screenshot for the Undergrunt section, ss well as probably a few other screenshots for that section? Also, you agree the Undergrunt misconception is the most biggest, infamous, and just flatout wrong and stupid misconception about the Monty Mole species? Also, what accent do you think the two normal Rocky Wrenches in Paper Mario: The Origami King are meant to have (I think it is either meant to be country or Canadian but I am not sure)? You can check the quote section on the Rocky Wrench page for reference. MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 05:18, November 4, 2022 (UTC)
I haven't seen those videos yet but I will check them out because it does seem incorrect, I do agree that the Undergrunt misconception is a ridiculous one (and this is coming from someone who's seen heaps of errors over the past several years), I will have to check that out, it is kind of strange that a merge like that went unnoticed though. Also, I made the page, it is still incomplete (there are still sections that I intend to add) but for now, I'd say it looks good! HannahMontanaFan (talk) 12:58, November 4, 2022 (UTC)
I saw the Mario Portal page, and it was pretty cool. One suggestion I would make though is you should cover the errors that Mario Portal made for the Super Mario Land games to, especially considering a lot of enemies in the Super Mario Land games only have Japanese names (especially the sequel). Also, any Monty Mole species pages from Super Mario Wiki that have been deleted overtime? The only two I can think of are ghost Monty Mole and Golden Monty Mole (both were pages I made). The former was deleted when I was new to Super Mario Wiki, and they deleted it due to the lack of info it had. The latter was deleted because of the Super Mario Wiki thinking it was just an ordinary Monty Mole variant that was too generic to get a page (like Golden Ukiki). However, the Golden Monty Moles have their name full capitalized in-game (though I am unsure what the Prima Guide said). I did make both the ghost Monty Mole and Golden Monty Mole pages come back on this wiki though (with the latter being made in the fandom Mario Wiki to). Also, what is that weird alternate name for Slurpie even from? MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 22:48, November 4, 2022 (UTC)
Thanks for working on the Mario Portal page. Although we didn’t get to cover the Super Mario Land games, at least we covered enough to get the point that the English Mario Portal is unreliable. Anyways, you cool with helping add images to the list of misconceptions pages (like screenshots of the misconceptions from like YouTube videos, fan sites, Super Mario Wiki and the fandom Mario Wiki, etc)? Oh and also, what about my question on deleted Monty Mole species pages the Super Mario Wiki once had? MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 16:23, November 6, 2022 (UTC)
Also, do you mind putting more references for enemy names for some of these pages. I get that they are official names, but I think you should source where the name came from (for example, I sourced the name 1-up Mole being from a Nintendo Power issue about Mario Pinball Land). Oh and also, what did Nintendo Power even call the Super Mario Galaxy moles anyways? MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 20:04, November 6, 2022 (UTC)
No Problem! Also, sure I could source the names and add the images for the page. as for the question regarding the SMG Moles, Nintendo Power initially called them Moles but later started calling them Undergrunts, the Undergrunt Gunners had their name found sooner (most likely because the Toad Brigade Captain actually called them that in-game), as for the SML section, that will be done one more is discovered about it. HannahMontanaFan (talk) 03:34, November 7, 2022 (UTC)
Cool, also what about the SMG Monty? Also, did Nintendo Power likely only call Undergrunts as just moles intimately since they knew they had nothing to do with Monty Mole? Anyways, I am excited to see the screenshots and extra use of using sources. Also, about my question on pages the Super Mario Wiki deleted that related to Monty Mole species? Also, also, the Super Mario Wiki treats Monty Moles being called Gophers in Super Mario Kart as the main name, but they were only called that in the Super Mario Kart instruction booklet, and they were referred to as Monty Moles by Nintendo Power. Also, any notable Monty Mole species stuff said by Nintendo Power (mainly later on in their lifespan)? Did the Australian version of the New Super Mario Bros. Wii Prima Guide have the Monty Mole & Rocky Wrench section the exact same or slightly different (or other info given from them)? Lastly, mind helping add more descriptions of Monty Mole species from guidebooks that you own? Thanks, and also, I really do like the idea of noting other English speaking countries of various enemy and character name changes that happened in the regions. MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 03:50, November 7, 2022 (UTC)
Also, know anything on Monty Mole voice acting? Oh and also, you agree that King Choropū existing at all basically proves that Major Burrows is not the leader of the Monty Mole species and also proves that Major Burrows is completely unrelated to Monty Mole as well? Also, is this reliable confirmation that John Stocker voiced Monty Mole? MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 02:01, November 8, 2022 (UTC)
I don't know too much about Monty Mole voice acting as of yet, as for the Undergrunt question, yes, they most likely called them that because they're obviously not Monty Moles, they did the same thing with Monty (even Prima which merely called the Montys "Moles" as well). They did have a tendency to do that, they did the same thing with the Super Mario Bros. 3 enemies (like they called the Nipper Plants "Walking Piranhas" in the SMB3 section (their name in the instruction booklet) despite Nintendo Power calling them Nipper Plants, they also did the same thing with the Blooper Nanny, Boo (which was named "Boo" Diddly in the Instruction Booklet and Boo Diddly by Nintendo Power) and there were a few more (on that topic, I am current making a misconception about the Bomps in SM64/SM64DS), also yes, I could help with that and I will check out the differences between guides. HannahMontanaFan (talk) 04:17, November 8, 2022 (UTC)
Thanks for helping, will you help after making that Bomp misconception? Also, liked the new misconception I added? MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 04:27, November 8, 2022 (UTC)
Also after the Monty Mole description stuff, are you cool with making a page that documents all the Monty Mole quotes (like the section on the Rocky Wrench page)? MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 06:36, November 8, 2022 (UTC)


Thank you for fixing that link on the Koopa Paratroopa page -- i was just trying to clean up the formatting Bawitdaba (talk) 20:27, November 8, 2022 (UTC)

No Problem! :) HannahMontanaFan (talk) 22:30, November 8, 2022 (UTC)
Oh also HM Fan, how is getting the Monty Mole descriptions from guidebooks been going? Are you also going to help with quotes to? MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 23:05, November 8, 2022 (UTC)
Hi, I am still wondering how those Monty Mole species guidebook descriptions have been going (like if you are working on them right now)? Oh and also about my question on if you know any deleted Monty Mole species pages? MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 05:18, November 9, 2022 (UTC)
Also I checked some of the templates seen in Super Mario Wiki, and a lot of them should be improved and updated to include all the species and characters (like the Paper Mario: The Origami King one forgetting to have most of the NPC species and some of the Mario Party ones to like the Mario Party 6 template). Mind helping port these templates with the right info? Oh and also, about my previous questions (like how are the Monty Mole descriptions going)? Oh and quick question, are the enlarged Monty Moles from Wiggler Park in Mario Golf: World Tour meant to be big Monty Moles or a spectate enlarged Monty Mole (since they are much bigger than big Monty Moles), or are just the players in Wiggler Park much smaller while the enemies are normal sized (kind of like what happens in Mario Party DS)? MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 22:48, November 9, 2022 (UTC)
Also, mind helping get the sources for the alternate names for the Chairs from Super Mario 64 sometime to (like while getting the Monty Mole descriptions)? MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 09:03, November 10, 2022 (UTC)
Sorry for the late reply, I've just been swamped with a couple work projects in real life but they're starting to ease down now. Yes I will add the sources for those (and several others too), also the Monty Mole bios are underway, and for the other question regarding the Yoshi Park Monty Moles, those are most likely normal-sized Monty Moles (much like how the SMG Pokeys are often confused for Giant Pokeys despite being confirmed to be regular Pokeys) also sure, I can help with those templates. HannahMontanaFan (talk) 09:59, November 10, 2022 (UTC)
Thanks for the help, I am excited to see your work. Also, does this mean that the player characters in Wiggler Park are just shrunken down and it is just a misconception that the enemies are bigger, but in reality it is just the players that are shrunken and the enemies are just normal sized (like with Mario Party DS)? If this is true, could this be added as a misconception since the Mario Wiki treats the enemies in Wiggler Park as enlarged variants? Also, any other Monty Mole species pages that the Super Mario Wiki deleted? Also there is this one trivia point on the Super Mario Wiki Mega Mole page that always confused me. The trivia point says "In Super Mario 64 source assets, Monty Mole's model is internally labeled "indy" and has its size set to 25% of the base model when implemented in-game, indicating the original intent for them was to be Mega Moles." However, I do not recall any mentions of Mega Moles being planned to appear in Super Mario 64 so do you know if this is true or false? MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 22:31, November 10, 2022 (UTC)
So how has progress been going? MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 22:27, November 11, 2022 (UTC)
I just checked both the NSMBW guides now, I can confirm that the descriptions for the Monty Mole and Rocky Wrench in both regions are the same. As for Wiggler Park, the characters being smaller seems like the more likely possibility as the environments around them appear to be larger as well but who knows (I may have to look into that further), for the question regarding the SM64 Monty Moles, I couldn't see anything regarding Mega Moles on TCRF so probably not. HannahMontanaFan (talk) 23:46, November 11, 2022 (UTC)
Oh ok, anyways, I was curious on what guidebooks you own that have Monty Mole species in them? MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 00:17, November 12, 2022 (UTC)
I own heaps of guides and Nintendo Power magazines that mention Monty Moles, Rocky Wrenches, etc. in them, I could list a couple but most of them may list information that we already know. HannahMontanaFan (talk) 04:55, November 12, 2022 (UTC)

(late) Halloween but

I been breathing new life into the Luigi's Mansion Wiki for the past day or so. Just figured you'd find it cool. You have a visitor (Boo) follow you as you scroll the wiki & there's image of ghosts in the editing box as well Bawitdaba (talk) 03:38, November 12, 2022 (UTC)

Nice! I love it! Looks Spoooooky! :P HannahMontanaFan (talk) 04:55, November 12, 2022 (UTC)
Oh and what about my question? MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 05:24, November 12, 2022 (UTC)
Which one? HannahMontanaFan (talk) 21:38, November 12, 2022 (UTC)
The one about listing all the guidebook bios of guidebooks you have that have Monty Mole species. Also, I added a few images for the list of misconceptions, what do you think of them and do you wanna add more images to that page later? Also, the Super Mario Wiki said that the source that said Ragumo was a Monty Mole relative wasn’t definitive due to it being said in a shocked manner. But isn’t it definitive since it saying in a shocked way was likely due to it being surprising and not questioning if it was real or not? Oh I also asked if you know any Monty Mole species pages that got deleted from the Super Mario Wiki, since you didn’t answer that question. MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 22:02, November 12, 2022 (UTC)
I saw your screenshots and they looked great. Can you add some more (mainly for like the Monty Mole species misconceptions)? MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 17:56, November 13, 2022 (UTC)
Thanks! Sure I could do that, I'm not sure if any more Monty Mole species pages (aside from the ones you recreated) were deleted from the SMW, I know the one I made on the PMTTYD Blooper was (which was created on the same day I ended up leaving for good after the final 90-day ban), also, as for Ragumo, your point on him is more valid than their's as it does seem like a surprise and not so much a question. The guidebook descriptions are also coming soon! HannahMontanaFan (talk) 21:29, November 13, 2022 (UTC)
Yeah, I feel like it was more of a shocked expression rather than saying "oh it was questing if Ragumo was a Monty Mole relative." Also, you agree that there isn’t really any official Mario media that has been confirmed to be non-canon, and the people who say that there is non-canon media are just assuming it is for dumb reasons? Also, should the Wiggler Park enemies being enlarged versions be considered a misconception, as it was likely just normal sized enemies that look bigger due to the player being smaller? Anyways, I am excited for the guidebook descriptions and more images for the list of misconceptions. One last question, do you mind making a page for the list of Monty Mole quotes? MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 21:45, November 13, 2022 (UTC)
Yes, the larger enemies could be considered a misconception as they're not technically larger, just the players are smaller. As for your canon question, it's never been officially stated whether certain medias are canon or not (I myself was once a believer of the canon/non-canon thing when trying to make sense of the timeline but not anymore, nowadays I go by what's been officially stated), also, sure. HannahMontanaFan (talk) 00:51, November 15, 2022 (UTC)
Cool, is it ok if I correct the Wiggler Park mistake on the pages that have that mistake? Also, I usually just consider anything official as canon (besides illegitimate sources like the English Super Mario Bros. Encyclopedia and Mario Portal). Oh and also, how is progress going on the stuff you are working on? MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 00:57, November 15, 2022 (UTC)
Same here, I'm not too rigid about sources either (unless they're unreliable ones like the two you just mentioned), for your other question, it's coming along great! HannahMontanaFan (talk) 08:49, November 16, 2022 (UTC)

Another request

May I request them to add this on Phabricator: $wgDefaultUserOptions['wlenhancedfilters-disable'] = 1; ? This will make the watchlist look like recent changes. Bawitdaba (talk) 18:35, January 2, 2023 (UTC)

Sure! HannahMontanaFan (talk) 20:42, January 2, 2023 (UTC)

Giant Grrrol

Thanks for finding an actual creditable English name for Giant Grrrol and I am curious how you could go into the files of NSMBU to get enemy names? Did Monty Mole and Rocky Wrench have any unique filenames and shared the same model, or is it what you would expect? I am also curious if you are able to check the files of other Mario games and rip models from them (especially Super Mario Sunshine and Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga and its 3Ds remake)? MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 19:11, January 7, 2023 (UTC)

Some enemies have switchable models such as the Hanging Piranha Plants and standard Piranha Plants (piped) but the Monty Moles and Rocky Wrenches are separate (as the Venus Fire Traps and Venus Ice Traps are), as for checking the files of the other games, I will have to get the ROM's for them. I managed to get the ones for NSMB, NSMBW, and NSMBU as well as SM64DS and SM3DL but so far that's all I managed to obtain. HannahMontanaFan (talk) 00:54, January 8, 2023 (UTC)
Ok cool, I am also curious if you are able to rip the models from those games (especially the Monty Tank model and the 3D Land Monty Mole and Rocky Wrench model)? Also I heard people say that Monty Moles and Rocky Wrench shared the same model in New Super Mario Bros. Wii and is that true (since you said that NSMBU had them as separate models and I am pretty sure that 3D Land also had them as separate models as well)? If so, should we point out how later games made them similar, yet separate models and if not, should we point out how different their models are? Also, mind showing me a Rocky Wrench model if the goggles are removed (since no official pieces of media ever shown it)? Also could you get a Mario Strikers Charged rom so that we can rip the skeleton models for the characters (especially Monty Mole)? Sorry if this is a lot of requests, I am just super excited. MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 01:37, January 8, 2023 (UTC)
Sorry if this comes off as a little annoying, but I was wondering if you could help answer my question soon? MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 23:30, January 10, 2023 (UTC)
All good, I will see what I can do about ripping the models for each game, also yes that would be a good pointer. Yes I will get the models of the Rocky Wrench and Monty Mole you mentioned. HannahMontanaFan (talk) 00:33, January 11, 2023 (UTC)
Thanks, just tell me when you do and upload the model images to Mariopedia. Also can you help rip them Mario Sunshine Monty Mole and canon models and the skeleton Monty Mole model from Mario Strikers Charged as well and also the Tank model for Monty Tank (and possibly with the Monty Mole in it as well)? MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 01:47, January 11, 2023 (UTC)
I was also wondering if you could try to get the full body sprite for Rocky Wrench in Paper Mario Sticker Star (either from the files or assembling the sprite from the spritesheet that can be found on The Spriters Resource)? I am also wondering if you could help upload the Yoshi's Crafted World model for Monty Mole, but with the red fur texture (which I am pretty sure is meant for the big Monty Moles when they get hit once, as it is likely that both the regular and big Monty Moles share the exact same model). The model can be found here, along with the alternate red texture. Also when did enemies like Cheep Cheeps and Mechakoopas have a line (-) in the middle of their name? Is it like something that happened in like other English versions of the game (like British and Australian)? MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 05:14, January 12, 2023 (UTC)
I am curious if you want to make a page on Mega Monty Mole’s explosive duplicates from Mario Party: Star Rush, as I am unsure if it should be listed as an object or species (since they are bombs modeled after Mega Monty Mole), and I also can’t find any good images of the explosive duplicates as well. MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 23:38, January 12, 2023 (UTC)
Sure! I could get those sprites and models, yes we can make a page on those. Also, the Cheep Cheeps had a dash in between their names in their earlier appearances such as Super Mario Bros., after Super Mario World, they appeared to be used interchangeably, games such as Mario Kart: Super Circuit had it as "Cheep-Cheep" while others like Super Princess Peach had it as "Cheep Cheep", in New Super Mario Bros., the "Cheep-Cheep" variation of the name was revived (and their variants also had it as well), this would be retained in New Super Mario Bros. Wii however as of 2012, the "Cheep-Cheep" variation has been used significantly less, the last game to have it as "Cheep-Cheep" as of right now was Mario Kart Tour. Mechakoopa is a similar case, games such as Super Mario Advance 2: Super Mario World have it as "Mecha-Koopa" while most others have it as "Mechakoopa", there are a couple that have it as "Mecha Koopa" as well. Interestingly, in their debut (Super Mario Bros. 3), the Micro Goombas' name were spelt as "Micro-Goomba" however more recent games have omitted the dash, for some games however, the regional difference does apply however. HannahMontanaFan (talk) 00:20, January 13, 2023 (UTC)
Oh ok cool, and thanks for the explanation on the different Cheep Cheep name. Did any Monty Mole species have weird names (either regional exclusives or just really old names)? Also about my question about the Mega Monty Mole explosive duplicates? MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 00:33, January 13, 2023 (UTC)
So how is progress been going on the sprites and models I requested? Also, mind helping with sources for names on some enemy species that don’t have sources yet (like the alternate names for the Chairs in Super Mario 64 and a lot of variants for some species)? MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 08:07, January 15, 2023 (UTC)
Sure! I could help with those, also, yes we could make pages on the Monty Mole Fakes. I also found this video that shows a plush toy of a Mega Mole that is only found in Japan, what do you think? It could sit well on the Iceberg! HannahMontanaFan (talk) 08:16, January 15, 2023 (UTC)
I actually did know about that Mega Mole plush (though it was cool it was featured in that video as well), but I could make an iceberg entry on it. Also cool that we can make a page for the Mega Monty Mole fakes, but can you make the page first and I add onto it later? Also thanks for the help with the sprites and models, just tell me when you upload my requested ones on this wiki as images (and also you could possibly upload them to The Models/Spriters Resource as well). Also, you mind helping try and rip the models and sprites for the Tower of Yikk, Fawful Express, Mawful Moles, and the Monty Bros. (especially with their jetpacks) from the giant battles in both the original and 3ds remake of Mario & Luigi: Bowser’s Inside Story (mainly the models for the former two, but I would like the sprites and models of Mawful Moles and the Monty Bros. specifically from the giant battles in the original and the remake, since there are already sprite sheets for them in the overworld)? Also mind helping get Metal Mawful Mole’s above ground sprite in the original BIS as well? Thanks for all the help. Also was there any source stating that Bonefin and Kingfin were related to Fishbone? If not, do you mind if I just consider Bonefins comparable to Fishbones instead of them being related? MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 09:03, January 15, 2023 (UTC)
Sorry for the late reply, sure I could help with those. As far as I can tell, no there isn't a source that states that the two are related apart from their appearance. The two being comparable would be more likely the case as one is a generic skeletal fish while the other is from space. HannahMontanaFan (talk) 05:56, January 20, 2023 (UTC)
Thanks for the info. Also what about that rumor of Rocky Wrench and Monty Mole sharing the same model (like in the NSMB games), is it true or do they have separate (but similar) models? MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 06:27, January 20, 2023 (UTC)

Stepping down

I didn't tell you this, but I personally decided to resign from bureaucrat role in favor of shifting focus to some of the other Mario-related wikis on Miraheze (among several others that I run); for example, Yoshipedia and Wariopedia. I'll still edit here though. :) Bawitdaba (talk) 13:31, January 18, 2023 (UTC)

Thanks for telling me, it is kind of a shame though, however it's good to see that you'll still be around. Of course if you ever decide to change your mind, the position is always open for you! :) HannahMontanaFan (talk) 22:15, January 18, 2023 (UTC)
At least it is nice that you are still helping with this wiki. Also HM Fan, how is progress on those model and sprite requests I said? Also aren’t the Rocky Wrench and Monty Mole model separate in NSMBW, since you said they were separate in NSMBU? MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 23:07, January 18, 2023 (UTC)
Yoshipedia and Wariopedia are wiki spinoffs of Mariopedia Bawitdaba (talk) 17:00, January 19, 2023 (UTC)
As for the models, I will get to those, I've been very swamped with other stuff recently but those will be done! HannahMontanaFan (talk) 22:32, January 19, 2023 (UTC)
Ok cool, just tell me when you get to doing them. MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 22:34, January 19, 2023 (UTC)
Thanks for adding more sources HMFan, but do you mind quoting the page and description of an enemy name that appeared in a guidebook? I hope you don’t mind that cause it is more consist with most other pages like the Monty Mole species pages, and Glorpedo’s page. Also please put the references after either a "," or a ")" if you don’t mind. Anyways, keep up the good work and I hope this can help. Also wanna help with some Monty Mole species pages (and also make a page for Mega Monty Mole’s explosive duplicates)? MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 04:40, January 24, 2023 (UTC)
No Problem! Yes I will add the page numbers, some guides mainly only include the names but I will include a fitting description as well. Sure, I could help with those too and add that page! HannahMontanaFan (talk) 05:09, January 24, 2023 (UTC)
Thanks, also if there is no description, you can just include the page number. Wanna also include those misconceptions I listed right now as well? Also, any cool obscure Monty Mole lore facts you want me to know right now? MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 05:16, January 24, 2023 (UTC)
Sure! Also, yes those misconceptions will be added, as for new Monty Mole lore, I haven’t found much but I did find this funny image of an old painting (forgot what the original was) with a couple Monty Moles. I will show it off once I get back to my Mac as I am sending this from my iPhone. HannahMontanaFan (talk) 06:54, January 24, 2023 (UTC)
Ok cool, good luck with adding that stuff. Also was it like an unofficial Monty Mole painting? MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 07:02, January 24, 2023 (UTC)
Anyways, just checking on how the model and sprite requests have been going? Also mind giving me screenshots or describing what Rocky Wrench’s model/filename in games past NSMBW (that you can rip or look into the files of), since I am curious if any of those games even have Rocky Wrench and Monty Mole sharing the same model (and if not, it could be listed as a misconception, since some people say they share the same model)? Also mind helping finally add sources to those alternate names for the Chairs in Super Mario 64? MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 04:39, February 7, 2023 (UTC)
As for those, it's a little tricker than I thought it would be. Also, which games in particular (like NSMBU), also yes if I find that they don't share the same model it can be added to the list. And yes I will add the sources for the alternate names for the SM64 Chairs. HannahMontanaFan (talk) 08:32, February 7, 2023 (UTC)
I was referring to games NSMBW and beyond that use 3D models and have both Rocky Wrench and Monty Mole (like NSMBW, 3D Land, and NSMBU). Also since I don’t have the models, mind writing the misconception for me? Also are you able to rip models from 3ds games (since models of Monty Mole and Rocky Wrench in 3D Land, all the Monty Mole species models in the 3ds remake of Yoshi’s Woolly World, and the Mawful Mole and Monty Mole model from the giant battles in the BIS 3ds remake would all be great to have on this wiki if you can get them)? MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 14:59, February 7, 2023 (UTC)
Anyways, just wondering if you have an answer to my Rocky Wrench question? MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 22:15, February 12, 2023 (UTC)
Sure! I could write the misconception! :) The RPG Gamer (talk) 23:20, February 13, 2023 (UTC)
Ok thanks. MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 23:23, February 13, 2023 (UTC)


Hi, so seeing as you're a bureaucrat of, would you be ok if we forked it to Yoshipedia? I suppose we could rebrand to Yoshi Wiki somewhere down the line (not sure) but I had this idea and wondered if you wanted to roll along with it. Bawitdaba (talk) 20:02, February 12, 2023 (UTC)

Sure! You can fork the content over to Yoshipedia, that sounds like a great idea in helping the expansion! :D HannahMontanaFan (talk) 22:08, February 12, 2023 (UTC)
Okay, importing is done at Yoshipedia. If you join I can make you bureaucrat Bawitdaba (talk) 13:21, February 13, 2023 (UTC)
Hey Bawitdaba, what about the pages that link to the mini-wiki Yoshipedia (like a few of the Monty Mole species pages)? Can we change that so they link to the main wiki or something? MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 22:38, February 13, 2023 (UTC)
Yes Bawitdaba (talk) 23:01, February 13, 2023 (UTC)

Mario continuity

Hi, I was just wondering if you still think all (or most) of the official Mario media is canon (like the games, shows, books, manga, etc)? The reason I ask this is because some of those other pieces of media might have debatable continuity, but I honestly think nearly everything in the Mario series is canon and take place in the same universe (even the shows and manga). The only thing I think is not canon is likely the 1993 movie. Anyways, what do you think on the Mario continuity (also mind answer what I said on the message wall in the Mario fandom wiki as well)? MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 13:58, February 15, 2023 (UTC)

I've always been confused as to how Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time fits on the timeline as some parts of the game do conflict with a couple aspects that have already been established in the franchise such as the Koopa Cruiser's appearance conflicting with Bowser describing it as his "newest weapon" in the previous game, the Goombas seen in Baby Bowser's Castle despite it being established that the Goombas were not always working for Bowser and initially lived in peace with the Mushroom Kingdom before joining Bowser (their appearance in Baby Bowser's Castle suggests that they were always minions of Bowser despite other sources saying otherwise), the game also shows the Baby Mario Bros. living in the Mushroom Kingdom (and that they would have playdates with Baby Peach) despite their origin story stating that they originally lived in Brooklyn before stumbling upon a Warp Pipe leading to the Mushroom Kingdom where they currently reside, the SMB Instruction Booklet also states that Bowser kidnapped Peach as she was the only one who could undo his curse and later games, he just kidnaps her to take over the Mushroom Kingdom the old fashioned way but in PIT, he attempts to kidnap her as a baby which kind of leaves some room for confusion.

But yeah, it's never officially been established what's canon and what's not so it's honestly safe to say that everything's canon and coexists together, I would say everything takes place in the same universe. There is also no official Mario timeline so that's another thing, to me (and this would probably be the safest way to assume it) each game takes place on the year it was released (for example, New Super Mario Bros. Wii was released in 2009 so it would take place in 2009). The RPG Gamer (talk) 00:13, February 16, 2023 (UTC)

Yeah that is how I feel about the Mario timeline as well, also want to rant about all the "Evolution of Monty Mole/Rocky Wrench (A.K.A Monty Mole/Rocky Wrench history)" videos that we can find? I was especially thinking of ranting on Dr. Wily’s and BowserPower’s Monty Mole and Rocky Wrench videos to show the mistakes they made. Also what do you think about this video that talked about Monty Mole in Yoshi’s Crafted World. Personally, there is nothing really extremely wrong with it (since it didn’t make any stupid Undergrunt misconceptions), but I did have a few things to point out. First, it kind of implies that Monty Moles were the first to attack Yoshi, but considering that Yoshi constantly eats Monty Moles, it is likely that the Monty Moles hate Yoshi due to them constantly eating their species (since Yoshis are basically their main predator, so them attacking Yoshi is kind of self defense). Second, the history part of the video kind of treated Rocky Wrench as just a slightly different regular Monty Mole, when in-reality, Rocky Wrench is a relative of Monty Mole that came before them (also he accidentally got the date wrong for SMB3, as he said it came out in 1990, when it actually came out two years prior in 1988). I think it is evident that Rocky Wrenches are just a relative to Monty Mole and not just a weird alter ego of them, since they coexist in several games (including both remakes of SMB3 ironically enough and several games after Rocky Wrench’s redesign). Anyways, what do you think about that video, and also could we start the rant for the other far worse Monty Mole/Rocky Wrench history videos (and which one is your least favorite)? MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 00:51, February 16, 2023 (UTC)
Also can you upload the skeleton Monty Mole model from Mario Strikers Charged to this wiki, and also the goggleless Rocky Wrench models to use in the Rocky Wrench having the same model as Monty Mole misconception? MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 04:32, February 16, 2023 (UTC)
Sure we can rant about those, you can start. Also, yeah that was a slight error as the Yoshis are the ones that eat the Monty Moles, typically from what I see, the Monty Moles attack those that invade their territories (as seen in the Mario Party DS minigame Mole Thrill where they chase the tiny players (possibly to eat them, who knows)). Personally, I've seen worse videos that that, that one was relatively decent. my least favorite video would've been Dr. Wily's one also, I saw this video here, Number 5 just screams "Mario is Mental", I could go on a rant about that if you'd like. The RPG Gamer (talk) 12:50, February 18, 2023 (UTC)
Yeah the video was pretty decent compared to other crap like Dr. Wily’s bad video. Also it was said in like a DS pocket guide made by Prima Games that the Monty Mole in Mole Thrill is trying to eat the players (presumably because the Monty Mole probably thinks the players are food, due to their shrunken size). Also yeah, the Monty Moles do seem to mainly attack invaders of their territory and the video was likely just trying to slightly demonize them to make them seem like they purposefully torment Yoshis, when in reality the Monty Moles only attack Yoshi due to them constantly eating Monty Moles and basically being their number one predator. Another piece of evidence I had to support the claim you had, is that in the Nintendo Super Secret card it says that all moles (including Monty Moles) hate plumbers due to their leaks in the pipes causing muck to be filled in their tunnels (which is likely why Monty Moles attack Mario and Luigi on sight, due to them being plumbers and could also explain why the Partners in Time being more friendly, since plumbing didn’t exist back then). Anyways, tell me what you think about the Monty Mole attacking intruders theory, cause I think it is pretty good. Anyways, yeah I think you should start the rants (both the Monty Mole history one and the Mario disturbing moments one). Honestly, the moments they chose in that video pale in comparison to actually dark moments like what happens with the Mega Moles in Dinosaur Dilemma and Flown the Koopa, and some of the stuff seen in the Mario manga (such as the dark implications, the ghosts of Mario’s enemies torturing Mario in hell for what he did to them, random inappropriate Monty Mole moments in Super Mario 4koma Manga Theater, etc). You agree a lot of the "disturbing" moments chosen in these videos are just kind of surface level? MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 15:54, February 18, 2023 (UTC)
Also what do you think of the comments I said on your Mario is Mental post (specifically these ones)? I agree with everything else about what you said besides the enemy part (which I will admit, MatPat was wrong in a lot of areas in that section, but Mario murdering enemies isn’t completely innocent, and just because the other characters do it doesn’t make it excusable for them either. I added some of my own counter evidence if you want to see it). MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 21:57, February 18, 2023 (UTC)
You did bring up some valid points, while that is true I was trying to say that he's definitely not up there with like The Joker or Hannibal Lecter, it's still not innocent either. The video I showed you however, the guy did bring up some valid points, I was trying to say the points he provided in Number 5 could be used for literally any video game (although I do agree with the part on Whacka (despite hitting him being optional), that's often why I never hit him whenever I play PMTTYD (I just can't do it)). Other than that, the video was decent. Also, the link you provided didn't link to the blog post. The RPG Gamer (talk) 22:41, February 20, 2023 (UTC)
Yeah I didn’t say that Mario was on the same level as actual serial killers, but he is certainly a murderer and the ghosts of the enemies he killed in the past hating him and Mario going to hell that one time further proves my point. I will admit, Mario isn’t a complete heartless monster, and he has done a few good things, but that doesn’t excuse all the murders he commits on occasions. Someone like Sonic on the other hand is an absolute heartless monster as he has absolutely zero remorse for the badniks he murders, barely gives a crap about the animals he saves (and he can literally feed the animals to Chao in Sonic Adventure), literally admits to enjoying destroying badniks and treating them nothing like toys (especially later on), and in Sonic Prime (which is canon by the way), SONIC LITERALLY DESTROYS THE ENTRIE UNIVERSE BECAUSE OF HIM BEING AN EGOTISTICAL MANIAC AND BASICALLY KILLING EVERYONE IN HIS MAIN UNIVERSE, AND DESPITE THIS HE IS NOT PUNISHED WHATSOEVER AND THE SHOW TRIES SO HADD TO MAKE YOU FEEL SYMPATHY FOR HIM. In Sonic the Comic (and most British media), Sonic literally doesn’t care about anyone else but himself and loving to destroy badniks and insulting them just to boost his ego. Sonic nearly killed an innocent Roller in issue 75 and made incredibly false statements about the badniks just to justify his horrible atrocities, and in issue 99-100, Sonic literally sends a black asteroid to Mobius so that the explosion it causes could destroy every single robot on the planet (which is literally on par with someone intentionally sending the metro to kill all the dinosaurs). Yeah Mario has done horrible things, but Sonic is honestly a heartless monster who only cares about himself and murdering countless robot lives and is genuinely an actual horrible person. At least with Mario, he never boasts about all the enemies he murdered in the past, and he at least feels a little remorse for when he kills them. Meanwhile, Sonic just loves destroying robots and making unfunny remarks because he is an actual psychopath. Sorry for that long rant, I just wanted to explain why I hated Sonic so much and why I think he is an absolute irredeemable monster. Do you mind checking Dr. Wily’s other enemy history videos and explaining anything he got right or wrong in it (though can you do the Monty Mole and Rocky Wrench ones first, since I want to hear your take on those videos (I can explain my reasonings after yours though, regarding anything you missed or stuff I wanted to add in))? MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 23:25, February 20, 2023 (UTC)
Anyways, what is your take on the whole stupid Undergrunt misconception? MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 06:35, February 24, 2023 (UTC)
Sorry for the late reply, yeah Sonic is very brutal and heartless, heck he's even a jerk to Amy Rose half the time. Donkey Kong has also had his fair share of brutal moments like in Donkey Kong Country Returns where he brutally beats the bosses to get the final blow presumably killing them. The worst part about this is all the game's bosses (except the final boss) aren't inherently evil but they've been hypnotized and possessed by the Tiki Ghosts into destroying the Kongs. The brutalness fully resides with Mole Miner Max, Mangoruby, and Thugly which just before DK scores the final blow, their eyes can be seen swirling meaning that they're hypnosis is wearing off (thereby regaining sense) but DK still manages to get the finishing blow on the boss especially with how brutally he beats Mole Miner Max in World 4. As for the Undergrunt misconception, they're 100% not Monty Moles nor are they even related. I mean it was bad enough the Super Mario Wiki initially stated that they're the same species but prior to 2010, they literally claimed that Undergrunts ARE Monty Moles (not a sub-species, not a relative but an actual Monty Mole redesign) despite there being no indication that they're the same (not even the Japanese names match), Nintendo Power, Prima, and even the game itself simply referred to them as Moles (they weren't given the name "Undergrunt" until Super Mario Galaxy 2 although Undergrunt Gunner was used in the first game). I mean for the Bats, it is possible that at one stage they were intended to be Swoopers given the Japanese name (much like how the SMG Bullet Bills were called Cosmic Bullet Bills in the beta but became regular Bullet Bills in the final build) but became a separate species in the final build, the Undergrunts share no design similarities to the Monty Mole, everything down from the eyes to the core design and behavior, nothing matches, to think that they say that Undergrunts are related to Monty Moles yet treat the Rocky Wrenches (a true relative of the Monty Moles) as a completely separate species is just... WHAT?! The RPG Gamer (talk) 09:27, February 24, 2023 (UTC)
Yeah Sonic is a genuine monster, and I hate how both the series and fans try to justify his horrible actions and treat them as heroic (especially with the comics). I understand if the badniks were just enemies and nothing else, Sonic would have probably been like around Mario levels of evil, but the fact that the badniks have been shown to be sentient, that Sonic barely cares about the animals he "saves," Sonic insulting his own friends and treating himself and his horrible actions as heroic, and literally getting actual amusement and enjoyment from his robot destruction is the reason why I think Sonic is genuinely one of the most evil video game characters out there. As for what you said about Donkey Kong, yeah it is pretty brutal how Donkey Kong still kills the bosses without any remorse, even when they were regaining their conscience. I think the same applies for the origami enemies in Origami King, as Mario just mercilessly kills them, despite them only attacking Mario since they were brainwashed by King Olly. The worst part is that the origami enemies still have sentience (as a few cutscenes show some of the origami enemies speaking regular dialogue and them being aware of their surroundings), so Mario is just killing these brainwashed enemies instead of actually helping them. To a degree, this also kind of applies with the Fawful enemies in BIS, but this more applies with Bowser (especially considering how he had no remorse for killing the Monty Bros. which were his former employees). What do you think about these examples? Yeah I absolutely agree with what you said about the Undergrunts, they do not even have anything in common with the Monty Mole species, so it is likely that they were just a one-off mole enemy species meant for the Galaxy games and nothing else. Also, can we rant about how the other Dr. Wily enemy history videos are extremely bad and poorly researched (but can we start with the Monty Mole and Rocky Wrench videos, and then the other enemy history videos)? MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 10:06, February 24, 2023 (UTC)
Also, what do you think of Monty Mole’s appearance in Robot Chicken (Its covered on the Monty Mole page on this wiki)? Also, someone suggested that Metal Mawful Mole might possibly be robots that are exact replicas of regular Mawful Moles. What do you think about this theory? MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 06:10, February 27, 2023 (UTC)
I think the examples you provided were pretty solid, sure we can rant about those Dr. Wily videos, you can start. I haven't seen the Monty Mole's appearance in Robot Chicken but I will check it out, that's kind of strange, I always pictured the Metal Mawful Moles being more similar to how Metal Mario is. The RPG Gamer (talk) 21:40, February 27, 2023 (UTC)
I was hoping you could start the Dr. Wily rant, since I wanted to hear your perspective on the videos first (including the Monty Mole and Rocky Wrench one). However, I would likely help with the rant after I hear what you said. Also, I am unsure if Metal Mawful Moles were meant to be robot recreations of Mawful Moles, or just Mawful Moles that Fawful made to be much stronger. Tell me what you think? MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 22:40, February 27, 2023 (UTC)
Also, can you tell me all the issues and wrong information you can find in this video (since I want to see how you think on what this video said about Monty Mole, no offense to the person who made the video of course)? MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 22:58, February 28, 2023 (UTC)
I could find a couple errors in the video, a few of these include him treating the Monty Mole from Super Mario Sunshine as a separate species although most likely the case is as far as I can tell, that was a redesign for the Monty Moles in said game (similar to how Bob-ombs look different as well), he merely states that Mega Monty Mole is just a stronger version of the regular Monty Mole whilst ignoring the abilities he demonstrates in his boss battles, he even states that Mawful Moles are brainwashed Monty Moles despite them most likely being a creation of Fawful or a different (Fawful-like) species (as the status is referred to as "Fawfulization") entirely especially as we see the Monty Bros. who were most likely brainwashed but didn't become Mawful Moles, additionally, he even lists Major Burrows as a Monty Mole despite him not being a Monty Mole but rather an Undergrunt (which aren't even related to Monty Moles). The RPG Gamer (talk) 01:11, March 1, 2023 (UTC)
Yeah, I don’t get why he treated the Mario Sunshine Monty Mole as a different variant, since it was clearly just a redesign (Super Mario-kun volume 31 even kept the Monty Mole with the modern design from the manga, while just keeping their hat). Mega Monty Mole is clearly unique too, as he has his own hot air balloon, can throw bombs, and even has explosive duplicates. Was the video implying that Mega Monty Mole was on the same level as big Monty Mole. I am pretty sure Mawful Moles (and Metal Mawful Moles) are likely just a variant of Monty Mole that Fawful created to be his minions. Also what you said about the Monty Bros. being brainwashed is partially wrong, as it is stated by the dialogue of the Monty Bros. that they were basically bribed by Fawful to join his company and sell Project K to him so that they can get a lot of money. And finally, we already know why stating Major Burrows there is just extremely stupid (since Major Burrows isn’t even a Monty Mole species). As for my opinion on Dr. Wily’s bad Monty Mole and Rocky Wrench video, I still want to hear your opinion first, and then I will say how I feel. As for other things, do you think Monty Mole will appear in that upcoming Mario movie trailer, and do you mind telling me if Monty Mole did or didn’t appear in that trailer? Another thing, could you help make that Rocky Wrench model misconception and provide images as well? MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 05:45, March 1, 2023 (UTC)
Also, you agree that people saying that the Badniks from Sonic are "non-sentient" (which is mostly said by the Sonic News Network users and most of the IDW pages for the Badniks) is on par with the dumb enlarged enemy merges that the Super Mario Wiki does (since it is a wrong statement that the wiki refuses to correct due to bias)? Also, I was wondering if you can see if the other Dr. Wily enemy history videos have extreme errors like the Monty Mole and Rocky Wrench ones (and also I want to hear your perspective on those two videos as well)? MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 22:51, March 1, 2023 (UTC)
I agree that it's definitely on par with that, it's almost as if they're making Sonic seem less bad than he really is (when we know he is actually pretty darn bad (probably Pure Evil but I'm not too sure)). Also, I checked out the Dr. Wily's video. In the opening monologue with the slideshow, he makes his first major mistake by including Major Burrows on the slideshow of Monty Moles (he even includes the Monty Mole from Super Mario Sunshine too despite not being different), worst of all, he includes the Undergrunt Gunner here as well. Thankfully he doesn't mention anything about Undergrunts being related to Monty Moles in the video (aside from the slideshow at the beginning) however someone in the comments did claim that he forgot the mention the Undergrunts in the video. As for the Rocky Wrench video, in the SMB3 chapter, he laughably claims that because the Rocky Wrenches have shells like the Koopas, that Rocky Wrenches must be related in some way despite no official indication that Rocky Wrenches are Koopas. It's only been stated that they were some sort of turtle-mole hybrid but not a Koopa. For the SMG part, I could not've cringed harder if I tried. He outright claims that the Rocky Wrenches "look different" in this game once again stating that they're a full mole rather than a Koopa (despite them never being Koopas at all). He also claims that this is a major appearance and a huge return for the Rocky Wrench and makes absolutely no mention that it is a completely unrelated species that was most likely inspired by the Rocky Wrench, he even claims that SM3DL is their SECOND 3D appearance due to his SMG misconception with the Montys also get a load of these comments on the Rocky Wrench video, the first got one thing wrong and the other partially right and for the second batch of comments, tell me what you think. Yeah we could rant about his other evolution videos too. The RPG Gamer (talk) 09:59, March 2, 2023 (UTC)
The funniest part about the badniks being "mindless drones" in IDW misconception was that IT WAS LITERALLY DEBUNKED IN ISSUE 58, since the badniks actually showed a stressed emotion right before they get killed (most prominently the group of Caterkillers and Batbrains that Sonic brutally murders). Funny enough, that same issue has one of the sadistic characters (Lanion) claim that the badniks "destroyed her home," but it just shows the Death Crab walking past her and not even noticing her at all. I am pretty sure she just lied about this claim so that she can make the badniks seem more evil (even though she is the evil one, and same goes with most of Sonics allies). I am pretty sure this badniks not being sentient thing was only made to justify Sonic’s sadistic atrocities and nothing else. Also, as someone who has seen what Sonic does in both the games and comics, I can agree that (especially in the comics) Sonic is pure evil, as he barely takes anything seriously and trust everything as a sick twisted game, and he only cares about himself and committing mass genocide against the badniks (he barely even cares about the animals he "saves," as shown in the Chao Garden from Sonic Adventure). As for my input for Dr. Wily’s videos, all of what you said is true (including the Rocky Wrench Koopa thing, which I totally agree with you on), but there were some things you did miss out. Something I hate about both of the videos is the absolutely terrible footage seen in the older games (cause it is blurry and stretched). For the Monty Mole video, something interesting was that the video actually showed Ragumo in the opening slideshow (making it one of the only Monty Mole species history videos to do this), which makes the inclusion of Major Burrows and the Undergrunt Gunner even more stupid, as he clearly had to have looked at the Monty Mole species list to include Ragumo (since they are pretty obscure), and I did check on if the Super Mario Wiki treated the Undergrunts as Monty Mole species during this time period (and sure enough it didn’t). I really have no idea where Dr. Wily is getting his research from (probably just skimming through the main series appearances and calling it a day), but the fact he even knew Ragumo was a relative to Monty Mole shows that he did do some research, so I don’t get why he made the error. That opening slideshow I am also pretty sure forgot to include Monty Mole variants from the spinoffs (such as Mawful Moles), which is likely because of laziness. Speaking of which, Dr. Wily kind of just pretends the spinoffs are not as important and barely mentions them in his videos (besides like a very brief mention towards the end). The Monty Mole video does thankfully not have a Mario Galaxy section (which would have likely been extremely cringe), but he does skim past the games after New Super Mario Bros. Wii and just vaguely says that they have Monty Moles acting like their past (which is kind of true for some of the games, but not all of them like with 3D Land). Speaking of which, he basically just skims over 3D Land by making a Rick and Morty joke with Morty Mole (which is ironic, since Rick and Morty came after Super Mario 3D Land) and that was about it. He didn’t even really go in-detail about Morty Mole or Monty Mole’s behavior, even though the latter actually has a unique behavior in 3D Land which is worth mentioning. He also just skims past New Super Mario Bros. U and Super Mario Maker (besides a very brief mention at the end for the former), despite that just kind of defeating the purpose of a history video if he just skipped random appearances (which is more stupid since Super Mario Maker was shown in the Rocky Wrench video if I remember correctly). In the brief spinoff mentioning part, he had Mario & Luigi: Dream Team as the Mario & Luigi game representative. While that game did have Monty Moles, it was only like a very minor appearance in the secret Bowser Jr. boss, so it was weird how that game was the one that was meant to represent their Mario & Luigi appearances (I would have chosen BIS instead, since that game had a more major role for the Monty Mole species than Dream Team). He also had the first Mario Party in that spinoff section, despite Monty Moles not even appearing in the Mario Party series until Mario Party 3 (and appearing in every single subsequent Mario Party (including the handheld ones) starting with Mario Party 5). At the end of the video, he also shows three games that "Monty Moles additionally appeared in" (being New Super Mario Bros. U, Super Mario Galaxy, and Super Mario 3D World). Only New Super Mario Bros. U had Monty Moles, and we already know why Super Mario Galaxy has no Monty Moles. But my real question is why Super Mario 3D World was included there? Super Mario 3D World didn’t even have any mole species at all (not even an unrelated one like the Mario Galaxy games), so I have no idea why the hell Dr. Wily included 3D World to begin with. My best guess was that he just blindly assumed Monty Moles were in that game because they appeared in 3D Land, but that is still a stupid reason. I also seen this misconception being done with Rocky Wrench, and it makes just as little sense. The Rocky Wrench video you were pretty spot on with. Like, Rocky Wrenches being called turtles doesn’t automatically make them Koopas (cause not every turtle in the Mario series is a Koopa), it just likely means that they could be turtles unrelated to Koopas. Also Rocky Wrenches being moles is true, as it was stated in the 3D Land Prima Guide that they are moles. I think that it is very likely that Rocky Wrenches are both moles and turtles, but not Koopas (because being a turtle doesn’t automatically make you a Koopa, it would be like if someone said every mole in the Mario series was related to Monty Mole). Yeah I agree the Super Mario Galaxy section was extremely cringe worthy and hard to watch, as it was basically Dr. Wily treating SMG Monty as 100% the exact same as Rocky Wrench with no differences whatsoever (even with stupid claims that they are "space engineers," which is stupid since Rocky Wrenches never even appeared in space as of 2023), despite that not being true at all. I also remembered him making a brief remark that the SMG Montys were a different species, but it was like one sentence and every part of that video tried to make it out like SMG Monty was 100% a Rocky Wrench (and as someone who researches Monty Mole lore, the part where he said Super Mario Galaxy was a "major role" for Rocky Wrench genuinely made me cringe the first time I saw it (and it still does make me cringe)). He also treats the airships returning in Mario Galaxy like it 100% means Rocky Wrenches came back in that game to be in them, which is stupid since Rocky Wrench isn’t even in Mario Galaxy, and the SMG Montys (which he treats like they are 100% Rocky Wrenches) never even appear in any of the airship levels at all, so even if they were Rocky Wrenches (which they obviously aren’t), his claim doesn’t even mean anything, as the ""Rocky Wrenches"" never are seen with the airships. Dr. Wily also treats Mario Kart DS as just some small minor role he throws at the end of the video, which is stupid stance that game was literally Rocky Wrench’s first appearance in a (non-remake) since like 1992. Yet Mario Kart DS is treated as this insignificant game, while Super Mario Galaxy was treated as this "major appearance and return for Rocky Wrench" (which even for the main series is false, since New Super Mario Bros. Wii was clearly the actual proper return for Rocky Wrench, since it gave them their current design and attack patterns that they would keep since). Yeah, we could rant about the other Dr. Wily history videos (though I do not hate Dr. Wily as a person, I just think these vidoes were pretty poorly made, especially that abysmal Rocky Wrench video). Also, mind uploading the goggless Rocky Wrench models and the skeleton Monty Mole model from Mario Strikers Charged soon? One additional thing was me wondering if we could do a rant on this old website (which haven’t been updated since 2013) called Mario Monsters, and talk about the wrong stuff it said on the Monty Mole species pages (believe me, there is a lot, and it is insanely cringe worthy). MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 23:38, March 2, 2023 (UTC)
Good news, I removed most of the inaccurate personality sections from most of the IDW Badnik pages (mainly the ones that said that they were "mindless drones" with no proof whatsoever, which was like most of them). You agree that misconception was really dumb, and was like on par with some of the dumb stuff the Super Mario Wiki did (like merging the enlarged enemies)? MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 18:47, March 5, 2023 (UTC)
Nice work! That is a major misconception that is quite on par with the merges the Super Mario Wiki did, I remember reading the Mario Monsters site years ago, they seem to specialize in fanart. The Monty Mole page is a total mess because it claims that the Undergrunts are Monty Moles without considering anything else, like it's not a mere redesign, they two separate Mole species, it's even worse with Rocky Wrench because they again claim that the Montys are Rocky Wrenches, it even calls the Podoboos "Podobos" (missing the second "o" at the end), they claim that Pyrospheres are Podoboos despite them factually being a stronger variant of them in SMRPG, the site even claims that the "Podoboo" spelling actually debuted in Super Princess Peach when it was actually in Super Mario Bros. (this being because they claim it was spelt as "Podobo" before then) although I will admit the theory they came up with about the eyed Podoboos being a more advanced variation of them is a clever one at that. On the Mecha-Chomp sector, there is a lot of unconfirmed information as they were most likely created by Cackletta (or even Fawful) to aid them in their conquest, also, the Woohoo Hooniversity wasn't closed as it can be accessed at anytime after it is completed (unlike some other areas like Guffawha Ruins). There are more, if you want, I could list them. The RPG Gamer (talk) 22:43, March 5, 2023 (UTC)
Thanks for complimenting my work on me removing that cringe badnik misconception. As for some errors that the Mario Monsters page had that I noticed, the Super Mario Sunshine Monty Moles weirdly have their own page called "Mole Cannon" (which isn’t an official name, but whatever). The page also says that the cannons are related to Bob-ombs and Blasters (the Bullet Bill cannons), which is weird since the cannons have nothing to do with Bob-ombs (besides the Monty Mole throwing them), and it is not really confirmed if they are related to Bill Blasters or not. As for the Monty Mole page, I find it weird how Monty Moles are noted to being rodents (even in some official media), despite moles irl not being rodents. The Super Mario Sunshine section calls the cannon a "tank" (despite it not being a tank), and the page heavily implies that Super Mario 64 DS (along with Yoshi’s Touch & Go) has a similar behavior for Monty Mole as Super Mario World, despite Monty Moles in Super Mario 64 DS attacking the exact same as the original Mario 64 (and not Super Mario World). The Mario Galaxy section is completely false, and the page literally admits that the Undergrunts (which they confuse for Monty Moles) are much more different, both visually and functionally (which basically proves that they aren’t Monty Moles). Not to mention how games like Mario Strikers Charged and Mario Party DS (which are referenced in the cameo appearances) came out the same year as Mario Galaxy, and those games have standard Monty Moles, which further proves that Galaxy just had a different unrelated Mole species. The cameo appearances thing also misses several games (like a good chunk of the Mario Party games and literally every Mario Kart game), not to mention how they list Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga (which is generically referred to as Mario & Luigi here) in the cameo appearances, despite that game featuring a different species of Monty Mole named Presenter (and Monty Moles themselves only appeared in the remake as a replacement for the Presenters, and not the original game). Speaking of the cameo appearances, a lot of those games listed there had pretty notable roles for Monty Mole (like them being playable in Mario Superstar Baseball and Mario Strikers Charged for example). The worst offender is New Super Mario Bros, which not only is a main series title, but the game LITERALLY HAS BOTH A MONTY MOLE BOSS AND MINIGAME THAT HAS MONTY MOLES AS THE MAIN FOCUS, yet New Super Mario Bros. is treated as just a "minor cameo," while Super Mario Galaxy is treated as a more important role (despite the Monty Mole species never appearing in Mario Galaxy period). The Major Burrows page is honestly just repulsive. Not only does it treat Major Burrows as a "huge Monty Mole" (despite that obviously not being true), but it goes as far as to imply that Major Burrows is the leader of the Monty Moles (which is also false, as it was literally disproven by the early Sticker Star beta and the fact Major Burrows never appeared outside of Mario Galaxy (besides the Super Mario-kun adaptation)). For some reason, the Undergrunt Gunner page treats Undergrunt Gunner as a close relative to Major Burrows, despite Undergrunt Gunner clearly just being a variant of Undergrunt. Also the irony with Undergrunt Gunner is that they are clearly called an Undergrunt, yet the Major Burrows and Monty Mole pages insist that the Undergrunts are 100% Monty Moles. The Mega Mole page says that they were outcasted by Monty Moles for their large size, despite that never being shown or even implied in any media Mega Mole appeared in (and in the manga, this is nowhere near the case, as the manga has several moments of both Mega Moles and Monty Moles interacting just fine). What further disproves this is that many Japanese sources state that Mega Moles are the bosses of Monty Moles, which shows that they are in a higher position and not an outcast (not to mention other enlarged Monty Mole species exist like big Monty Moles and Morty Moles). And now, we get to the worst page (from what I seen), the Rocky Wrench one. Where do I even begin? First of all, the page blames Rocky Wrenches for not giving their tools to Bowser and his minions, leaving to a wrench shortage and them being kicked out. This was never really shown or implied in any pieces of media that had Rocky Wrenches in them, and it is very likely that Rocky Wrenches have a lot of wrenches that they store. Also, nobody else in the Koopa Troop uses wrenches besides Rocky Wrenches, so I don’t see why Bowser would get mad at Rocky Wrenches for doing what they do. I also highly doubt Rocky Wrenches were ever kicked out of the Koopa Troop, as really the only reason why they rarely appeared for decades was likely cause airships didn’t make a major return until Super Mario Galaxy (but they wouldn’t make a more traditional return until New Super Mario Bros. Wii), so that is likely why Rocky Wrenches never made a non-remake appearance for a very long time (with the only exception being Mario Kart DS). The page also says that Rocky Wrenches were only forgiven during the events of Mario Galaxy, which is completely untrue as Rocky Wrenches appeared in Mario Kart DS prior and still seem to work for Bowser there, not to mention how Rocky Wrenches didn’t even appear in Mario Galaxy at all). It also says that Rocky Wrenches were used in grassland areas cause they were Monty Moles, which is dumb since Rocky Wrenches came before Monty Moles (making them relatives and not the exact same), and didn't really fully resemble Monty Moles until their redesign in New Super Mario Bros. Wii (which likely came after when this page was written). Rocky Wrenches were also never shown to even be in any grassland areas (excluding the manga) until Paper Mario: The Origami King, which came way after this was written, so I have no idea where the hell they got Rocky Wrenches being in grassland areas from. The page also says Bowser gave Rocky Wrenches "wrench-making machines," which were never shown or implied to ever exist in any piece of official Mario media. The page also says Rocky Wrenches learned new tactics, but this never was shown in the games until Super Mario 3D Land (which came way after this page was written). Finally, the evolution section is complete garbage, as it treats SMG Monty as the exact same as Rocky Wrench and says that the only difference was the bandana (which they didn’t even say what the right color was, since they said the bandanna was red, when in actuality it was blue). It seems like they only saw like a singular video of SMG Monty and assumed that they were the exact same as Rocky Wrench (both visually and functionally), despite SMG Monty looking not even anywhere close to what Rocky Wrench looks like (with literally no design similarities between the two of them). It is clear as day that SMG Monty is just an entirely different unrelated mole enemy, yet the page makes them out to be the exact same as Rocky Wrench, and tries to treat Super Mario Galaxy as a massive moment for them (like the bad Dr. Wily video), despite the fact that Rocky Wrenches never appeared in Mario Galaxy at all, and the page pretending Mario Kart DS never existed just to get their point. Anyways yeah, we can do more rants on bad Mario Monsters pages. What do you think of what I said? MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 00:35, March 6, 2023 (UTC)
Oh and also, what about the Super Mario 64 movie and Mario timeline video that ConnertheWaffle made? Also I am genuinely curious on your opinions on the stupid "Super Mario Bros. 3 actually being play" theory that Myamoto for some reason confirmed to be canon (despite it originally not being canon at all in the first place)? MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 02:19, March 7, 2023 (UTC)
No Problem! Yeah the site seems to be incredibly unreliable as it has a lot of incorrect content on it and you pretty much proved all the Monty Mole claims incorrect, I can't believe they too made that stupid misconception on Major Burrows. Those two videos were incredibly poorly done, as for that one, I honestly can't believe he made that canon. I'm not sure if he was referring to the original or the All-Stars/Advance remake of the game or both but yeah, it seems like an act of fan service to me. I have no idea why it was done, but yeah, I was thinking of ranting on those as well as another Dr. Wily video that came to mind. The RPG Gamer (talk) 12:30, March 7, 2023 (UTC)
I agree, and the things said on the Rocky Wrench page felt like extreme speculation. Also, I felt like the play thing Super Mario Bros. 3 did was only for a stylistic choice (like what most Yoshi games do for example), rather than it ACTUALLY being a play. Super Mario World is also a literal direct follow up to Super Mario Bros. 3 (and the Sunken Ghost Ship is also confirmed to be a personal Airship Bowser took after the events of SMB3). I don’t see how it would be fan service by saying that a game that was established to be real in the timeline is just now all of a sudden a play. Personally, I am pretty sure Super Mario Bros. 3 is still canon and not a play, and what Myamoto said was just a stupid retcon. Also sure, we can rant about those things, you go first. MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 22:45, March 7, 2023 (UTC)
Same here, I don't think that SMB3 was quite literally a play, I've always believed that the curtains and such were merely for aesthetic effect. Anyway, for Dr. Wily's video, I found two and decided to cover both, the two in question are the Piranha Plants and Cheep-Cheeps so here we go, to start off, I saw a quite a bit wrong with his video on the Cheep Cheeps, up until SM64, he got quite a bit right however he started making errors in that sector, while Cheep Cheeps do appear in Super Mario 64 DS, they are completely absent from the original with Bubs in their place instead. Additionally, he refers to the Bubba as a Boss Bass despite it being a completely separate species, heck the Boss Bass doesn’t even appear in the remake instead the Big Bertha appears in his place. In the Super Mario Galaxy section, he seems to claim that the Kingfin is a Fishbone and that his Bonefin minions are 100% Fishbones even though they're clearly not, what I find even more ironic is he calls Kingfin a "Cheep-Cheep boss" even though he isn't even related to them in any way". For the Piranha Plants, he got a lot wrong in this video, to start off, he claims the SMB3 was the first game to create variants of enemies, this is actually false as SMB had Paratroopas, a variant of Koopa Troopas and SMB2 had Kūchū Gessōs which are variants of Bloopers (or Bloobers as they were called prior to SMB3). To start off this side of the rant, he refers to the Venus Fire Traps as Fire Piranha Plants (despite this name never being used for them in this game and that name only really applying to the black and orange variant which debuted in Super Mario 3D Land), he also refers to the Piranhacus Giganticus as "Big Piranha Plants" (a name for the Super Piranha Plant used in the NSMBU Prima Guide) despite the two being a completely separate species of large Piranha Plants with different behaviors (not to mention their Japanese names being different (similar to the Big Monty Moles and Mega Monty Mole)) and in the middle of all that, for the SMG section, he literally treats Dino Piranha and Peewee Piranha as being 100% the same and dismissing the egg shell as a mere design change despite their clear differences in behavior and names, not to mention that Dino Piranha LITERALLY APPEARS in Super Mario Galaxy 2 as a separate boss. But yeah, those are those two videos, what did you think of this? Any Mario enemy-related errors or misconceptions on YouTube, we could rant about those. The RPG Gamer (talk) 23:31, March 7, 2023 (UTC)
Yeah those two videos also seem pretty damn inaccurate (and ironically enough, both have a misconception that involved the Super Mario Galaxy games, like what is it with Super Mario Galaxy and enemy misconceptions). I think the Kingfin and Dino Piranha misconceptions are also extremely stupid, since unlike Monty Moles, Cheep Cheeps do appear in Mario Galaxy, so what he said with Kingfin is incredibly stupid (and like you said before, Dino Piranha is already in Galaxy 2, which basically confirms that Peewee Piranha is a different character). Yeah we can rant about more crappy Mario videos (I was thinking the two bad videos that ConnerTheWaffle made about the Mario timeline and Mario 64 being a "movie"), though something I do want to rant about is how some people treat the Airships being in Mario Galaxy as automatic proof that SMG Monty is 100% the exact same as Rocky Wrench (such as Dr. Wily and that Mario Monsters website). Not only is it clearly obvious that SMG Monty is a completely different Mole enemy that has no connections to Rocky Wrench besides a vaguely similar attack pattern, but SMG Monty doesn’t even appear in any of the Airship levels at all. So even if SMG Monty was theoretically a Rocky Wrench (which is extremely false), their point still makes no sense since SMG Monty doesn’t even appear in any of the Airship levels. It is very likely that Mario Galaxy wanted to bring back the Airship levels and just forgot to bring back Rocky Wrench (which they would later fix in New Super Mario Bros. Wii). Tell me what you think? MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 01:33, March 8, 2023 (UTC)
Also, what do you think of the Perfect Ban Mario Character Daijiten‎ basically confirming that Monty Moles (alongside every other enemy in the beast clan category) were "Animals that have been magically turned into monsters." How would you interpret that? MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 03:38, March 8, 2023 (UTC)
Also is Monty Mole (or any other Monty Mole species member) FINALLY confirmed to be in the Mario movie yet (since a new trailer recently dropped? MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 00:06, March 10, 2023 (UTC)
I watched the trailer just now, we saw some Goombas, Spinies, and a Sledge Bro. but unfortunately, I didn't see any Monty Moles (hopefully they appear in the full movie however). I did think that was a bizarre discovery, maybe you could add that to the Iceberg. I agree with that, it's incredibly dumb how some people claim that Montys are Rocky Wrenches merely because of Bowser's Airships being in the game despite them not appearing on any Airships. Your point is much more solid than theirs. What did you think of the new trailer? The RPG Gamer (talk) 05:17, March 10, 2023 (UTC)
Yeah I might add that discovery to the iceberg later. Also yeah, I agree my point is way more solid evidence, since the Airships in Mario Galaxy are nothing like the Super Mario Bros. 3 ones (and not because they are in 3D, since Super Mario 3D Land had traditional Airship levels). I wasn’t too big of a fan of the final trailer, since it just showed mostly stuff we already knew about the movie instead of focusing more on what species will appear in it (which makes me worried that they will only show generic enemies). Do you still think Monty Mole (or even Rocky Wrench) has a good chance of having a decent role in the actual movie (even if they weren’t in the trailers)? Speaking of which, if you go see the movie, mind telling me if Monty Mole or Rocky Wrench is in it? Anyways, wanna go rant about the two bad ConnerTheWaffle Mario vidoes (the Mario 64 movie and Mario timeline one)? MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 07:38, March 10, 2023 (UTC)
Also why does the Super Mario Wiki have one of the German names for Undergrunt Gunner being the same as Monty Mole’s (despite the two being separate species)? Was this an error on the wiki’s part, or was this an accident made on some sort of German source? Either way, is this likely a mistake and not proof of the two being related? MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 08:15, March 11, 2023 (UTC)
It's probably an error on their part (the SMW), even if the German name did use it, this further limits the two being related as it isn't an actual connection it's just something that the German Nintendo translators came up with (much like how in the French version of Rosalina's book, her father was stated to have a mustache (something that wasn't mentioned in neither the English nor Japanese versions)). When getting a source from another language, it's usually best to go with the Japanese version as that is what is what the creators actually intended (and since the Japanese version makes no connection between the two, they're not related). Sure we can rant about those, you start! The RPG Gamer (talk) 21:47, March 11, 2023 (UTC)
Yeah I agree, it is likely untrue. Anyways for my rant on the timeline video, for some reason the video treats the original Super Mario Bros. as the first part of the Mario timeline. While it might be early in the timeline, it is untrue since there are plenty of games that take place in the far past (like most of the Yoshi titles, the early arcade titles, the live action segments in the Super Mario Bros. Super Show, and probably the upcoming Super Mario Bros. Movie). I am pretty sure I heard that Super Mario Bros. 2 likely did happen and it wasn’t just a dream, though I am unsure on how true that is so let me know more on that one. Anyways, Super Mario Bros. 3 is where the video gets ugly, as he treats that game as nothing more than just a "stage play for Mario to share his dreams." However, the events of Super Mario Bros. 3 are real, as Super Mario World is a direct followup and the kings returning in some of the manga (mainly the 4koma ones). The whole stage play thing is likely something that was meant to be an aesthetic choice (mainly for the opening) and not the events of the game being an actual stage play (especially since the two remakes mostly had less of the stage play aesthetic besides the opening). I know Myamoto said it was a stage play all along, but I think that was likely just a lousy retcon made by the fan misconceptions, as I am pretty sure none of the guidebooks or instruction manuals even implied that it was a stage play (and if anything, likely implied more that it was real events). Also the Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3 clearly has the events of SMB3 being canon and it virtually has nothing to hint that it is a stage play (besides the opening curtains for each episode, which is likely more of a reference to SMB3 rather than it being a stage play). The video then claims that Super Mario Bros. 3 being a play was successful and that Super Mario 64 is a direct followup movie. This is even more stupid than the Super Mario Bros. 3 being a play thing, cause at least there was some evidence there, but there is literally no proof of Super Mario 64 being a movie. The video also puts Super Mario 64 before Super Mario World, despite YOSHI BEING A 100% REWARD (and him remembering Mario after the events of that game), and not to mention enemies from Super Mario World (like Monty Moles, Wigglers, and Swoopers) returning. The Lakitu Bros. having cameras was likely just a cute way to personify the in-game camera, and not imply the game was a movie. Also games like Super Mario Sunshine, Super Mario Galaxy 2, and Super Mario Odyssey have references to Super Mario 64 and treats the events of the game like they actually happened and weren’t just a movie. Super Mario 64 is clearly real and not a movie (even less than Super Mario Bros. 3 being a stage play). The video then treats Super Mario Sunshine as coming before Super Mario World (though it coming after Super Mario 64 is true), despite YOSHI BEING IN SUNSHINE AND ENEMIES FROM SUPER MARIO WORLD APPEARING IN THAT GAME AS WELL (like Monty Mole and Wiggler). Also I don’t think the events of Super Mario Sunshine happened because the "movie" was a success, but rather Mario is likely really rich due to him being a national hero in the kingdom, and thought that going on a vacation again (like what they did in Super Mario World) was a good idea. Also the video states the entire Yoshi’s Island series and Paper Mario series are nothing more than children’s books that he written, which like I said, is just him assuming an art style is literally what the game is meant to be like. Starting with Yoshi’s Island, there is literally nothing implying that those games are books, and rather it is just styled to be like a book to make the game pop-out more (and this could explain why Woolly World and Crafted World are also visually distinct). Also, the events of those games are canon to the main series, as characters like Poochy and Kamek do reappear in later titles (and Kamek also reappears in Mario Galaxy, which is shown later in the video, so how did he completely forget that)? The video then claims EVERY SINGLE MARIO SPINOFF is nothing more than just what Mario does due to being rich from his "fake" adventures, which is really stupid, since those games are more like what Mario and his friends (and enemies) likely due in their free time after doing the main adventures. MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 04:35, March 12, 2023 (UTC)

Sorry, I have to continue my rant here since I was lagging, so hope you are cool with that. Anyways, a lot of those spinoffs (like post-2008) also have references to Super Mario Galaxy (most notably being Rosalina appearing in a lot of those spinoffs, despite her not meeting Mario until Super Mario Galaxy), yet the video acts like ALL OF THOSE SPINOFFS came before Super Mario Galaxy. The video then says that Super Mario Galaxy was the "full return of the real Bowser from the original Super Mario Bros." despite like NEARLY ALL OF THESE GAMES HAVING THE REAL BOWSER IN THEM. Most notably, Super Mario Sunshine had Bowser trying to sabotage Mario’s vacation, and that game was treated as real. Not to mention all the games he left out (which I will get back to later) and the spinoffs having Bowser in them, so Bowser was still around. Super Mario Galaxy is likely just another Bowser kidnapping Peach plot (just more edgy) and nothing more than that. Also the video constantly treats Super Mario Galaxy like it was the first time Mario fought Bowser since the original Super Mario Bros. despite all the other games existing. Speaking of which, Conner left out a lot of mainline Mario games like all the Super Mario Land and New Super Mario Bros. games, Super Mario World, Super Mario 3D Land and 3D World, among many more. I think he left out those games just to fit his extremely shallow narrative to make it seem more plausible, despite those games basically debunking a lot of his claims (especially the Bowser claims), and excluding these games causing a lot of plot holes (mainly Super Mario World, since that game introduced Yoshi and yet he completely forgets that 64 and Sunshine have Yoshi as well). The video also implies Mario meets Rosalina in Mario Galaxy, which ironically debunks his claims of every single spinoff coming prior (since Rosalina was in most of those spinoffs after Mario Galaxy). Also he implies that Super Mario Galaxy 2 is Bowser’s canon death, despite Bowser constantly surviving stuff like that (like in 3D Land when he fell into lava while getting hit in the head with debris), and Bowser comes back after Galaxy 2 anyways. Then Hotel Mario is treated as the last thing in the timeline as a joke, but that was pretty damn stupid (since Hotel Mario likely takes place as an in-between adventure). At least in the end of the video he admits the timeline was stupid as hell (which I can see why, since it had a lot of plot holes and contradictions and treated everything besides Super Mario Bros. and the Super Mario Galaxy games as being completely fake), so I will give points for him admitting that. Anyways, did I miss anything or do you want to add more to the conversation? Also, mind uploading the Rocky Wrench goggleless and Monty Mole skeleton (from Mario Strikers Charged) models to this wiki so I can see them for myself? MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 04:54, March 12, 2023 (UTC)

Oh and also the Monty Tank model as well? MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 22:19, March 13, 2023 (UTC)
From what I can see, the Instruction Manual, nor the three guides relating to the game make any indication that SMB3 is a stage play, his reasons for putting SMW after SM64 are incredibly flawed for the reasons you said combined with the fact that it's been constantly implied that SM64 takes place after SMW. Lakitu's camera I feel was merely for aesthetic effect and not to imply that the game was a movie. And that part on Yoshi's Island and Paper Mario being children's books is complete bs as Yoshi's Island is constantly referenced in later games. Him leaving out games is an extreme case of cherry picking and that is obviously not how good theories are made. Also, did the guy even watch the ending of SMG2, Bowser is shown alive and well in the credits (although tiny he's still alive). Also sorry that I haven't got around to that yet, I've been busy with many projects in real life but I will look around when I get the chance! The RPG Gamer (talk) 00:18, March 15, 2023 (UTC)
I wasn’t even thinking about the ending of Super Mario Galaxy 2, but it makes the theory even more flawed. Conner at least admitted the theory was flawed as well, but it makes the whole theory pointless when you really think about it. Also the Super Mario Wiki treated Egg Pawn and Flapper as variants of Eggrobo and E-123 Omega as a notable member of Eggrobo (despite there being no confirmation that those badniks are related to Eggrobos). You agree that is pretty damn stupid? Also, wanna do a rant on this website right here? MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 02:24, March 16, 2023 (UTC)
Also, what do you think is the origins for Mawful Mole and Metal Mawful Mole? MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 02:20, March 20, 2023 (UTC)
Also, also, what do you think about how Mario is treated this year so far (I am personally concerned to say the least)? MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 21:58, March 22, 2023 (UTC)
Sorry for the late reply, I'm hoping we get some announcements after the Mario movie but I am concerned as well as we got absolutely nothing this Nintendo Direct (I can't believe some people even claim that it was the best Nintendo Direct ever as literally the only good thing that's not DLC we got that entire direct was Tears of the Kingdom (maybe Metroid too but I've personally never really been a Metroid guy) everything else was merely just Anime simulators and other stuff that literally nobody cares about that Nintendo seems to think that everyone is going to be jumping up and down for but Miyamoto did say this so that's comforting... I guess but again that was just one statement). Sure we can rant on that site, also, I'd say that the Mawful Mole and Metal Mawful Moles may've been a mutated version of Monty Mole of some kind that works alongside Fawful (possibly), there could be Metal variants of Monty Moles (like Metal Mario in SSB) but who knows. Also, yes I agree that that SMW misconception is stupid, we should add it to the list (I also added two more a couple days ago as well). The RPG Gamer (talk) 02:43, March 23, 2023 (UTC)
Yeah I am hoping that they will announce a new Mario game sometime after the movie releases (and I also hope the Mario movie is actually good). Also yeah I agree, the new Nintendo Direct was pretty bad (especially for Mario, since the only thing they announced for that besides the returning GBA games was a singular Mario Kart track). Also another misconception you should add is the Super Mario Wiki treating the sole name for Monty Moles in Super Mario Kart being "Gophers." While they were called gophers in the instruction manual, Monty Moles literally had their regale names being said by Nintendo Power and even the files of the game, so it seems like the Gopher name is most likely just one of those other names Monty Mole is called sometimes and not the name that is 100% given for them in Super Mario Kart. Also, we never really seen any metal Monty Moles, so my best guest is that Metal Mawful Moles are just either an upgraded or further mutated version of the regular Mawful Moles. Also Mawful Moles being a mutated Monty Mole species that Fawful somehow created makes some sort of sense, since the Monty Bros. never became Mawful Moles when joining Fawful and just remained as regular Monty Moles (and this was still kept in the remake as well). I will likely rant about that Monty Mole Fan website later, but what do you think is the most unreliable unofficial Mario source (I wouldn’t say Super Mario Wiki though, since that wiki is more just inconsistent (though it has been slowly getting less reliable as the months go by)). Also, do you still think there is a high chance the Monty Mole species will appear in the Super Mario Bros. Movie (since I am concerned that they won’t include them since they didn’t appear in any of the marketing)? MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 04:04, March 23, 2023 (UTC)
Thanks for the misconception idea, that is a dumb one, I could also add the other instances where they use instruction booklet names as well because there are a few but that one sticks out the most, I also fixed that misconception on the Nintendo Wiki which also included it, as for the least reliable Mario source, I would probably go with the English Mario Portal as that literally took names from the Super Mario Wiki and used incorrect names for a lot of enemies calling them by names that weren't used in the game in question or giving enemies names of a completely different enemy. The English Super Mario Bros. Encyclopedia also has it's issues but I feel that the English Mario Portal has just as much wrong with it as the English SMBE if not more but yeah, I agree that the SMW is becoming less reliable with them treating the EMP as a reliable source (despite it's insane number of errors) being one of the reasons, what do you think is the least reliable source for Mario? The RPG Gamer (talk) 10:59, March 23, 2023 (UTC)
Yeah sure, feel free to write those misconceptions down when you get the chance. Also I agree, the Mario Portal is just completely unreliable and it made just as many (if not more) errors as the English Super Mario Bros. Encyclopedia, yet the Super Mario Wiki treats the Mario Portal like it is 100% reliable (like they seriously thought that the Mario Portal incorrectly calling Monty a Rocky Wrench was just an alternate name for them, despite it obviously being an error since the two are completely separate species). I know that some of the names aren’t as bad as others, but I don’t think we should trust an unreliable source like the Mario Portal, cause of all the errors and misinformation makes it feel too inconsistent to even trust anything there. As for what I think is the most unreliable source, I would probably say the Mario Monsters website, as it literally makes up stuff that isn’t true (like Mega Moles being discriminated, or Rocky Wrenches being fired for doing their attack method), or just gets stuff that is blatantly wrong (like saying the Undergrunts and Montys are 100% the exact same as Monty Mole and Rocky Wrench, despite the pages literally having contradictory statements that prove that they aren’t related or the same). Wanna go check out that website and tell me what other crap it got wrong (or add fuel to the fire on telling me which Monty Mole species page they got the most wrong and why)? Also, do you still think there is a chance that the Monty Mole species will appear in the Super Mario Bros. Movie (since I am concerned that there is a chance they won’t, since none of the marketing showed any member of the Monty Mole species)? MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 21:56, March 23, 2023 (UTC)
Anyways, how likely do you think it would be for Monty Mole (or Rocky Wrench) to be in the Super Mario Bros. Movie? MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 21:48, March 27, 2023 (UTC)
Sorry for the late reply, I do believe that there is a fair chance we may see Monty Moles appearing in the movie, but yeah, it is very stupid how the Super Mario Wiki treats the EMP as being reliable, heck, they did the same thing with Mecha-Bowser where they listed "Mechakoopa" (his name on the EMP) as an alternate name for him despite Mechakoopa obviously being a false name that was most likely lost in translation. The RPG Gamer (talk) 04:31, March 29, 2023 (UTC)
Alright, once the movie does release, do you mind telling me if the Monty Mole species appears in it? Also, is the reason why the Monty Mole species not being shown in any of the marketing was likely because of them wanting to focus more on the main cast rather than most of the other species for the marketing (and does this apply for other Mario games)? Also Mecha-Bowser having Mechakoopa being listed as an alternate name is pretty damn stupid, since they clearly aren’t a Mechakoopa (it is like if you said Big Montgomery was just a regular Monty Mole). Also, has there been any confirmation that the Micro Mecha-Bowsers are related to Mechakoopas or not? Another stupid thing the Super Mario Wiki did that was similar to your example was when they treated Monty (from Super Mario Galaxy) being incorrectly called Rocky Wrench in the Mario Portal like it was an alternate name for them (despite it obviously being a mistranslation or an error, as the SMG Montys share no connections to Rocky Wrench besides their comparable attack pattern). Also, do you think that Monty having a similar attack pattern to Rocky Wrench was likely just them being loosely inspired by Rocky Wrench, but still being an unrelated and separate species not affiliated with the Monty Mole species? Anyways, can I rant about the Monty Mole Fan website next? MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 05:34, March 29, 2023 (UTC)
Sure! Also, I checked out the Mario Monsters site, man is there a ton of errors. First of all, it outright claims that King Kaliente is a Blooper, even though he clearly shares no resemblance to them (although his beta name was King Magma Blooper, the game's final build cut out any relation to Bloopers he may've once had). Next, they claim that the Bats from SMG are actually Swoopers even though those Bats look nothing like Swoopers. There's many more. Yeah I was aware of that, there are heaps more example like they even renamed the Silver Chomp to Homing Chomp due to the latter being used on the English Mario Portal despite the Silver Chomp name LITERALLY BEING USED IN THE GAME. I would believe that the Monty's attacks are likely inspired by the Rocky Wrench but the two obviously have no connections whatsoever. Also, sure you can rant about that. The RPG Gamer (talk) 07:59, March 29, 2023 (UTC)
Yeah the Mario Monsters site calling King Kalliente a Blooper is really stupid, what is with Super Mario Galaxy enemies and stupid misconceptions? As for the Monty Mole Fan Website, yeah there is a ton of errors. For some minor mistakes, it says the Monty Mole’s cannon in Super Mario Sunshine is a tank (despite it never being referred to as such), and both the Mario Kart 8 and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe sections fail to mention that Monty Moles also appeared in Donut Plains 3, not just Moo Moo Meadows. The Mario Party 10 section also uses weird edited art of Mario Party: Island Tour instead of the actual box art, and the section also fails to mention that the Monty Mole in that game is named Mega Monty Mole and is a notable member and not just a generic member of the species. The Super Mario 3D Land section should have also mentioned Morty Mole as well, since that is a pretty notable thing from that game. Outside of those smaller errors, there are two extremely major errors the website made. First of all, the website forgets a ton of the spinoffs that Monty Moles appears in, like literally every single Mario Kart prior to Mario Kart Wii (and also Mario Kart 7, but that game only had Monty Mole as a cameo role excluding the fact Rocky Wrench appears in that game), every single Mario Party except Mario Party 10 and Super Mario Party, the first Paper Mario (despite Origami King being listed on the page), literally every single Mario & Luigi, Yoshi, and sports title, among probably some other examples I forgot to mention. The second and worst error is unsurprisingly something to do with Super Mario Galaxy. The site treats Major Burrows like he is THE EXACT SAME as a regular Monty Mole (not even a notable member, just a standard Monty Mole) and only says that their difference is the name (as the Super Mario Galaxy 2 and Super Mario 3D All Stars sections literally call Major Burrows just a Monty Mole). Not only is this completely stupid (as Major Burrows shares literally nothing with Monty Moles besides them both being moles), but he forgets to mention the other Undergrunt species and treats Major Burrows like the only mole in the entire game (which is also false). I feel like this person just looked at a few youtube videos and did some quick research on more of the recent Monty Mole appearances (which explains why he treats Major Burrows as a regular Monty Mole and forgets a ton of spinoff appearances), and did not do any deep research at all besides the very basic info. I don’t hate this person or anything, but for a website made by a Monty Mole fan, it is very poorly made and researched. Anyways, what do you think about the website? MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 22:03, March 29, 2023 (UTC)
The site seems like it’s full of errors and misconceptions, it’s crazy how they made a Monty Mole fan site but yet don’t know basic information about the Monty Mole species, I would like to see the site as well to see how wrong they are, do you have a link? The RPG Gamer (talk) 03:49, April 2, 2023 (UTC)

Monty Mole in Super Mario Bros. Movie?

I found this weird cast listing for the Super Mario Bros. Movie right here and I was wondering if this is actually real or just some fanmade one (since this listing does list Monty Mole in it)? MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 04:47, March 31, 2023 (UTC)

IMDB isn’t really a reliable source so I’m not 100% sure as anyone can edit the site, for one example, for this show I watch on Nickelodeon, a bunch of different characters and cast members were added to a then-unreleased episode (one of which hadn’t appeared since Season 1, said character is the one used on my profile picture on Wikia/Fandom). None of them ended up appearing in the episode but yeah I could check it out and determine the legitimacy. The RPG Gamer (talk) 03:49, April 2, 2023 (UTC)
I think it is a good idea to check if that source is reliable or not (and regardless of its legitimacy, do you still think the Monty Mole species has a chance to appear in the movie)? Also, here is the link to the website, so if you see any other errors please let me know. Some good news though is that I talked to the creator of the site, and they might improve it, so I hope that does eventually happen. I still don’t get why the creator was so insist on Major Burrows being a Monty Mole cause other people said it, the reason why crap like that is a misconception is because of people spreading misinformation of a certain topic and people thinking the misconception is the truth (and the Undergrunt species is the perfect example of this). Nintendo never made a single official connection between Major Burrows and Monty Moles, and Major Burrows is clearly the leader of an entirely separate unrelated mole species, so Major Burrows being a Monty Mole makes litterally no sense whatsoever. Anyways, what do you think of the site? MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 04:21, April 2, 2023 (UTC)
I just checked the site now, I think it’s incredibly silly how they claimed Major Burrows is 100% a Monty Mole and treats Mega Monty Mole as a generic Monty Mole, some sections are also incomplete and lack information such as the SM3DL section. I also find it mind boggling how they included every game (even a stack of ports) but they couldn’t include SM64DS despite Monty Moles having a role in that game as well (this might be silly but I do get triggered when others practically ignore SM64DS's existence all while treating FULL ON PORTS like they’re 100% games that are apart of the series despite SM64DS having more to offer than an average port and even getting it’s own Wikipedia page (something most ports/remakes don’t get)) but yeah hopefully he makes those improvements. Yeah that can be the case sometimes, when someone tells a lie or an assumption and repeats it over and over, people eventually start believing that lie/assumption as the truth (in some cases, even the messenger may believe it themselves). Major Burrows is definitely not the leader of the Monty Moles as he’s the leader of the Undergrunts (an unrelated species), I even saw some erroneous page (I think it was on deviant art where someone did a graph of all the enemies and their respective leaders and they put Major Burrows for the Monty Moles (despite that obviously being false and get this, for the Swooper, they put Antasma despite him being an entirely unrelated Bat species). The RPG Gamer (talk) 22:14, April 3, 2023 (UTC)
Yeah I don’t get why Super Mario 64 DS is treated lesser. Personally, I think that game is on a similar level to the Super Mario Advance tetralogy or Super Mario All-Stars, where it is still the same game, but with updated graphics and additional content or extra changes to make it stand on its own. Stuff like New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe and Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury (besides the Bowser’s Fury stuff) feel more like just glorified ports with a few extra things tacked onto it. I don’t get why something like Mario Kart 8 Deluxe (which was barely any different from the original Wii U version until 2022) is treated more than a full on remake. Yeah, I do agree that the 3D Land sections is extremely unfinished, since it should at the very least note Morty Mole’s existence or something. I do hope that the person does eventually improve these sections to actually make them good. Also, the fact someone said Antasma was the leader of the Swoopers was extremely stupid, cause Antasma shares nothing with Swoopers whatsoever. Also, the stupidest thing about Major Burrows being called the Monty Mole leader is that we already technically have a Monty Mole leader, even if it went unused (and this beta for Paper Mario: Sticker Star was likely developed at least a few years after Super Mario Galaxy released, so they likely knew Major Burrows was a completely separate mole species and instead made an actual Monty Mole king). Also, what do you think of this video and what errors did this video have (I know one, but I will let you find out that one yourself). MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 22:37, April 3, 2023 (UTC)
I watched the video just now, one error I found was that it referred to the Bubba as a Boss Bass despite them being two separate species (hey, at least it doesn't make the error of claiming that the Mega Cheep Cheep is a Boss Bass). Another error I spotted was that Major Burrows was in the Monty Mole section even though he's clearly not a Monty Mole. Also, I noticed that the video took a whole stack of names from the Super Mario Wiki (some of which were from the NSMBU Prima Guide but hey, at least it didn't use names from the English Mario Portal (mostly because the video was uploaded before the EMP)). The RPG Gamer (talk) 01:10, April 4, 2023 (UTC)
I am surprised there wasn’t more errors, but the fact they put Major Burrows in the Monty Mole section is completely stupid (like if you wanted to showcase a powerful Monty Mole boss, show the one from Sunshine or Monty Tank, not a completely unrelated mole boss that looks or acts nothing like Monty Mole). Anyways, do you know any other really stupid Monty Mole species misconceptions like the Undergrunt one? Also, what do you think about the fact that the Presenters from the original Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga were treated the exact same as Monty Moles for years, and then the Monty Moles in the 3Ds remake were treated as a redesign of Presenter (despite Play Nintendo clearly calling the ones in the remake ad Monty Moles)? Also, since the Super Mario Bros. Movie is coming out soon, tell me how likely you think the Monty Mole species will appear in it (since they were not seen in any of the marketing for some reason)? MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 04:41, April 4, 2023 (UTC)
Anyways, since the Super Mario Bros. Movie likely has came out when I wrote this thing, does the movie have Monty Mole species in it? MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 04:16, April 5, 2023 (UTC)
I just watched the movie today, I hate to be the bearer of bad news but the movie didn't have a single Monty Mole or Rocky Wrench in it. They weren't the only enemies to not be in the movie, Podoboos didn't appear in the movie either (despite there being heaps of lava in the movie, not a single Podoboo was seen either), aside from King Boo, no Boos were seen in the movie, Fuzzies didn't appear in the movie, unless I'm missing something I don't think Chain Chomps did either. Swoopers weren't in the movie but rather the Bats from Super Mario Galaxy Lakitus, Buzzy Beetles, Spike Tops, Wigglers, Pokeys, Thwomps, Scuttlebugs, Whomps, Amps, Broozers, Fishing Boos, Urchins, Venus Fire Traps, and more weren't in the movie. The enemies that did end up appearing were, Goombas, Koopa Troopas, Paratroopas, Bob-ombs, Spinies, Piranha Plants, Bats, Shy Guys, Snifits, Dry Bones, Bullet Bills, Banzai Bills, Biddybuds, Bramballs, Cheep Cheeps, Bloopers, Blooper Nannies, Baby Bloopers, a giant Maw-Ray, King Bob-omb, and King Boo. Yoshis didn't really appear much either aside from a couple cameos but other than that, I actually really enjoyed the movie (maybe we will get the Monty Moles in a potential sequel). I agree with that, it's silly how people thought that Presenters were the exact same as Monty Moles, I mean they could've given them a separate page but nope (hell, this was before the remake, in the original, they hardly look like Monty Moles). I honestly don't get how we're the only ones that've seen that Play Nintendo confirmation. It really goes to show how oblivious some people are and that they don't do any research. Like they do the same with many guides where they never source it being completely oblivious of the source's presence. The RPG Gamer (talk) 11:15, April 7, 2023 (UTC)
I know Chain Chomps and Buzzy Beetles did appear in some of the marketing, but they must’ve had either an extremely minor role, or were not in the actual final movie. Yeah I knew the Monty Mole species was sadly not in the movie (like, was there really any cave or mountain area at all), and the fact that all those species couldn’t appear kind of feels lazy (like how can you have lots of lava but no Podoboos). There was only like four species in the entire movie that felt like obscure and interesting picks (Bramball, Biddybud, the Mario Galaxy Bats, and Maw-Ray), the rest just seems like the typical generic enemy affair with nothing interesting besides overusing Koopa Troopas, Goombas, Piranha Plants, and Shy Guys, rather than including a variety of species. I kind of felt like they really only did that just for marketing and laziness (hence why most of the references and species are generic or overused). The Mario movie had a lot of potential to be creative, yet they just chose the generic route (they could have even had obscure long lost enemies like Mega Mole or Blargg return). I am also confused on why King Boo is in the movie, but not any regular Boos (which is dumb cause Boo is a well known species), and from what I heard, King Boo (alongside King Bob-omb) don’t really do anything besides appearing because reference. The bats from Mario Galaxy are also extremely weird to put in the movie, since not only is it a species not even some Mario fans recognize, but it kind of breaks the continuity (cause it is implied that most Super Mario Galaxy enemies are completely different due to exclusively living in space or other far away regions, but the bats appearing instead of Swooper just makes no sense, it would be like if Undergrunts appeared in the movie instead of Monty Mole). Speaking of continuity, from what I saw, I am pretty sure this movie breaks a lot of the pre established continuity the Mario series had (if you want, you can list some examples). Also Yoshi being regulated to minor cameos and a post credits scene is kind of stupid, since Yoshi is literally one of the most recognizable Mario characters. I guess the positive is that this might mean the sequel will be like Super Mario World, which has a lot of potential, instead of just being scattered shot with random areas from the series. As for the Presenter stuff, I still don’t get how people for years thought Presenters were the exact same as Monty Mole (they were only referred to as just moles in the two English guidebooks). Obviously they were a variant of Monty Mole, but they weren’t the exact same (hell, they look way more like Mega Mole than Monty Mole). Also, I didn’t even know about the Play Nintendo thing until I just searched Monty Mole in Play Nintendo and found that massive lore drop lol (and due to most games by the Superstar Saga 3DS remake’s time not getting guidebooks, I think this might be our only confirmation. Hell, I could not even find a Japanese guidebook from what I researched). If you were wondering, the other Play Nintendo stuff on the site didn’t have as much Monty Mole species lore drops outside of that particular one for the Superstar Saga 3DS remake. I still don’t get why the Super Mario Wiki constantly treats unreliable sources like Mario Portal and even sometimes the English Super Mario Bros. Encyclopedia (the latter they know is unreliable), yet they can’t look at Play Nintendo to find out that the "Presenters" in the 3DS remake of Superstar Saga are just regular Monty Moles that replaced them (similar to the generic enlarged Koopa Troopas replacing Ankoopas in the remake). The Monty Moles in the Superstar Saga remake aren’t even redesigns of Presenter like what the Super Mario Wiki treats them as (unlike Mawful Mole (and their metal variant) in the BIS 3DS remake, since both the original and remake of BIS had both regular Monty Moles (in the form of the Monty Bros.) and Mawful Moles in the exact same game, unlike Superstar Saga, where the original had an entirely new Monty Mole species, and the remake just had generic Monty Moles instead). Considering the Super Mario Wiki, it is very likely that they will just say that the "Presenters" in the 3DS remake being called Monty Mole is just an alternate name for them (like when they thought SMG Monty being incorrectly called a Rocky Wrench by the English Mario Portal was just an alternate name for them). MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 14:26, April 7, 2023 (UTC)
Does the Super Mario Bros. Movie contradict and retcon the preexisting Mario lore (and is it even canon or just an AU)? Also what about I said previously as well? MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 22:03, April 10, 2023 (UTC)
Sorry for the late reply, sure you could list some examples. Also, yeah, guidebooks have kind of been dying down in general over the past several years in fact, the Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Prima Guide was the first Prima Guide since Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U in 2014 (so to think that Prima never released a new Mario guide in almost three years (despite a couple coverable games being released in between September 2014 and April 2017) is just crazy. I don't get how they couldn't've come to that conclusion, they know the Ankoopas and Gargantua Koopa Troopas are different yet they treat the 3DS Monty Moles as a mere redesign to Presenters. It's honestly ironic how they treat those as reliable sources now whilst ignoring several Prima Guides, Nintendo Power, in-game names (one was with Super Princess Peach with the Vibe Crystals) and the aforementioned Play Nintendo as well. Yeah, the points you brought up were very valid however the Super Mario Wiki usually tends to twist logic and create some form of an inaccuracy. Also, yeah, King Boo and King Bob-omb mainly made a minor cameo in one key scene (which I won't spoil in case you haven't seen the movie) but yeah, them claiming that "Rocky Wrench" is an alternate name for Monty is incredibly stupid as it's obviously an error and not an official alt. name for the enemy. The RPG Gamer (talk) 12:54, April 12, 2023 (UTC)
Yeah it makes no sense why the Monty Moles in the 3DS remake of Superstar Saga are treated like a redesign for Presenter on the Super Mario Wiki, meanwhile the enlarged Koopa Troopas in the same remake are considered different from Ankoopas. The reason why it is obvious that Mawful Mole had a redesign in the BIS remake and wasn’t just replaced was because they still had the green Fawful-like cap thing, and regular Monty Moles (in the form of the Monty Bros.) do appear in BIS. I am really not a fan of the Super Mario Bros. Movie, as it just feels kind of generic and basic and it overuses generic enemy species, has references for the sake of references with no substance, and contradicts stuff established in the games for no reason. Should we rant about all the continuity errors the Super Mario Bros. Movie made? Oh also, originally, the Super Mario Wiki said that Monty Mole Patches looked exactly like the Monty Mole jumping sprite seen in Super Mario World, but it literally doesn’t (especially since Monty Mole Patch uses the modern Monty Mole design), you agree? Also, wanna write more misconceptions in the misconception page? MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 22:36, April 12, 2023 (UTC)
Also, you agree that [this decision made right here was extremely stupid and it felt like the Super Mario Wiki team not reading the manga and making assumptions? MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 05:18, April 14, 2023 (UTC)
Sure! I've got a couple ideas ready. Also, I honestly think that it's stupid that they treat the King Monty Mole as an implied character as he is literally shown in the comics. I honestly thought that page was reserved for characters we NEVER see but now they're using it for these reasons. They just get dumber and dumber, in fact I heard that if stuff like this keeps up, the SMW will get so unreliable that it will be viewed as a joke that people don't take seriously. The RPG Gamer (talk) 03:10, April 17, 2023 (UTC)
The Monty Mole king wasn’t shown in the comics, just briefly mentioned once in Super Mario-kun volume 5, but I still get your point. This is likely just the Super Mario Wiki being stupid once again, like them merging Petey Piranha’s sludge balls with Glorpedos and the generic pushing platforms in Tick Tock Clock with Bomps (despite neither of them having any connections whatsoever). Yeah, it seems like if this crap keeps piling up, the wiki will just become more and more unreliable (since the Super Mario Wiki is literally hypocritically using names from the Mario Portal, which has a crap ton of errors, as well as the English Super Mario Bros. Encyclopedia (which they know is unreliable) for no reason). Anyways, I was thinking of any other wikis that are bad due to strict and corrupt higher ups or low quality info (like the Super Mario Wiki)? Oh also, is the Super Mario Bros. Movie an AU, cause that movie has a crap ton of continuity errors and overall just feeling like the people didn’t know the story of Mario and instead just cramming in as many surface level references as possible (like why are Super Mario Galaxy elements here when Mario hasn’t even seen stuff like Lumas yet, and why are King Bob-mob and King Boo here if they do nothing but just further retcon established info and be in the background of a scene only for a reference and nothing else)? Sorry, I just absolutely loathe the Super Mario Bros. Movie (due to how generic and play it safe it is, as well as it having an incoherent plot, bad voice acting, forgettable humor, little enemy variety and overusing the same few species, cheap and shallow references only there to make the movie seem better than it actually is, ruining and retconning established Mario lore, everything feeling like an absolute slog of nothing but random crap happening for no reason just cause, among other problems I have with the movie), though I don’t mind if you enjoyed it, but I am wondering if you agreed or disagreed with any of my criticisms here? MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 04:28, April 17, 2023 (UTC)
Also, what is with Super Mario Galaxy and having more enemy misconceptions than any other Mario game (stuff like people saying the Undergrunts are species of Monty Mole, despite there being little to no evidence on that being true). Also what are the top five worst Mario Galaxy enemy misconceptions? MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 15:50, April 22, 2023 (UTC)
Also, wanna help add more misconceptions soon? MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 23:26, April 26, 2023 (UTC)
Yeah I agree, like they recently renamed Prince Froggy to Froggy (which is actually a nickname and not his actual name, I remember it was renamed once before in early 2015, I ended up changing it back not long before the final ban but it seems as though they changed it back almost as if they can’t understand the concept between a full name, a nickname, and a new/old name). I do feel the movie could’ve added more enemies (although aside from that I enjoyed it), maybe we will see some more enemies in the sequel. That'd have to do with the Super Mario Wiki thinking everything is oddly connected for some reason. Like they claim Undergrunts and Monty Moles are connected despite no evidence suggesting this, the worst would have to be the Undergrunt/Monty Mole one that was mentioned, they claimed that the Spiders in the game are Scuttlebugs, oh oh and we can’t forget the Bats being Swoopers. Initially, they also had the Crabber page merged with the generic crab page as well (this is understandable as they were simply known as "Crabs" in the first game and the Crabber name debuted in SMG2). The RPG Gamer (talk) 23:09, April 30, 2023 (UTC)

King Choropū

How do you feel about the fact that the Super Mario Wiki treated the King Choropū’s mention in volume 5 of Super Mario-kun as just them referring to Bowser, you think it is just another moment of Super Mario Wiki not understanding the manga? MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 20:08, April 29, 2023 (UTC)

I think that it is a dumb mistake on their part. Like they really don’t understand basic translations. This reminds me of the time where they thought that the Fire Chains mentioned in the MK8D Prima Guide were the Rings of Fire despite the fact that the guide was actually referring to the Firebars (with Fire Chain apparently being an alternate name for them). The RPG Gamer (talk) 23:09, April 30, 2023 (UTC)
I feel like the point of the different Super Mario Galaxy enemies was likely due to them wanting to make different unrelated enemy species instead of just using the established ones (for example, the Undergrunts were likely made to be just a separate mole enemy specifically for the Mario Galaxy games with no real major connections to the Monty Mole species (unlike something like Ragumo, which is a confirmed relative to the Monty Mole species)). However, I feel like people on the internet, plus the wikis at the time really wanted to insist that these Mario Galaxy enemies were either related or the exact same as the established species (that is why that stupid Undergrunts being Monty Moles misconception exists). Yeah, it seems like the Super Mario Wiki loves merging stuff for the sake of it and trying to act like it is the exact same as an entirely separate thing (this is most prevalent with the Glorpedo and Bomp pages, since the wiki insists that these generic objects are the exact same as named enemies from the exact same game). Any other examples you can think of the Super Mario Wiki not understanding simple stuff like this (and the King Choropū stuff)? Also, I found this German Mario guide on Internet Archive that I think says Rocky Wrench is a Koopa? here is a link to it, just tell me what this guide is trying to say (you could use a translating app and copy the text down if you need to) and tell me what you think about it. MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 00:33, May 1, 2023 (UTC)
Here's the translation, I'm not sure what it's trying to get at since the Rocky Wrenches literally have shells in the game (and the artwork): "Ever since he lost his shell, this koopa tortoise has been throwing wrenches. Bowser likes this!". Anyway, one example I can think of is that they still cite the English Mario Portal as a reliable source without realizing that about over half the names used on there were taken from their site (yet they immediately picked up the English Super Mario Bros. Encyclopedia doing just that and disavowed them for it). I also hate how they literally favor the NSMBU Prima Guide above every other source despite it being the most dubious of the Prima Guides, heck, for the Lava Rocks, they use the "Volcanic Debris" name from the NSMB2 Prima Guide as their name despite that only being used in said guide, and them not resembling debris in most games (such as SM3DW, MKW, MK8, MK8D, etc. where they're called Lava Fireballs). For the MKSC section, they referred to them as Lava Boulders (as stated in the Prima Guide for that game) yet referred to them as "Volcanic Debris" in the MKW section (refusing to acknowledge the MKW Prima Guide) despite them never being referred to as such in said game, don't get me started on how they messed up all the large Cheep Cheep pages by merging each and every one with different types (the timeline for this goes way down) and the whole Spinner VS Ball 'n' Chain thing which I've mentioned hundreds of times, their renaming tendencies are no better, I could go over a whole list of examples. The RPG Gamer (talk) 03:11, May 1, 2023 (UTC)
Yeah those are some pretty bad examples of the Super Mario Wiki being really stupid. I also hate how hypocritical the Super Mario Wiki is for being so dumb to not realize how unreliable the Mario Portal is and prioritizing it over any other source (like remember what happened with Snuffit and Swoopin Stu). I also seen that the Super Mario Wiki is hypocritically having pages being named from the English Super Mario Bros. Encyclopedia despite them knowing how unreliable that source is. I think one of the dumbest things that the Mario Wiki did for Mario Portak was treating stuff like it incorrectly calling the SMG Monty as Rocky Wrench as just an alternate name for them (despite them calling out the English Super Mario Encyclopedia for calling them a Monty Mole), and treating the Mario Portal reusing the Japanese names for enemies (mainly from Super Mario Land 2) as the 100% official English names for those enemies (despite the English Super Mario Encyclopedia doing the same thing and getting called out for it). Oh also, should the German Super Mario Power guide be sourced as an official piece of media that actually referred to Rocky Wrench as a turtle, and if so, mind putting it as a source in the Rocky Wrench and updating the list of misconceptions page to note this fact (though it is weird how the German Super Mario Power guide acted like Rocky Wrench lost their shell in SMB3, despite them not really losing their shell until New Super Mario Bros. Wii. There is also the minor continuity error on it saying that they started throwing wrenches AFTER they lost their shell, despite Rocky Wrenches throwing wrenches in most media that also depicts them with their shells. What do you think about that minor continuity error)? MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 04:53, May 1, 2023 (UTC)
Mind helping add the Rocky Wrench being related to Koopas info from the German Super Mario Power guide to both the Rocky Wrench and Koopa pages? MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 00:28, May 3, 2023 (UTC)
Sure! I do think it is a strange error as at the time, they had Shells in all official media, unless the author of the guide somehow has psychic powers, I'm not sure. The RPG Gamer (talk) 23:47, May 3, 2023 (UTC)
Maybe it was likely just a minor mistake that author made, but I am still pretty sure the book is still most likely reliable and canon (unlike the Mario Portal). Anyways, good luck with adding the Koopa info to the Rocky Wrench page. Also, what is your opinion on the Badniks from Sonic? MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 00:06, May 4, 2023 (UTC)

idk when i'll get around to continuing but

Hopefully soon I can resume getting this wiki up to speed again. I know it's designed after classic Super Mario Wiki, but if you think about it, this wiki has more in common with the MarioWiki on Fandom. :P Bawitdaba (talk) 13:57, May 5, 2023 (UTC)

So hopefully you will be able to update these pages faster? Oh also, aren’t you going to get those Tower of Yikk screenshots soon? MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 22:06, May 5, 2023 (UTC)
I can't because DS emu not working, sorry Bawitdaba (talk) 22:48, May 5, 2023 (UTC)
Aw, okay. Also, anything I can do to help improve more Monty Mole species pages? MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 23:04, May 5, 2023 (UTC)
I think you did pretty good thus far. Bawitdaba (talk) 23:37, May 5, 2023 (UTC)
It'd be good as a combination of both. Yeah, I’ve been needing to ready some pages for a while now. The RPG Gamer (talk) 04:08, May 6, 2023 (UTC)
Yeah I agree, also mind helping add the Super Mario Power source to the Rocky Wrench and Koopa page to source that Rocky Wrenches are related to Koopas? MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 04:30, May 6, 2023 (UTC)
You agree that the Super Mario Bros. Movie is not canon (due to the many contradictions and lore it breaks, unlike the DiC cartoons and the manga)? MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 22:05, May 11, 2023 (UTC)
Sorry for the late reply, yeah sure! Also, I believe that the Super Mario Bros. Movie takes place in a separate universe to the Mario games not only with the contradictions to the lore but some of the personality differences (like for example Bowser is close to being a pure evil in the movie whereas in the games, he wasn't as extreme), the characters looking strikingly different, and more. For this wiki, I am in favor of creating separate pages for the movie incarnations of the characters (like how Mario Wikia has done it as well as the Heroes and Villains Wikis). The RPG Gamer (talk) 02:48, May 16, 2023 (UTC)
I agree with what you said, though I still think the movie incarnation characters can still share the same page. Also, mind helping with that German Super Mario Power guide Rocky Wrench source that said that they were related to Koopas? MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 03:03, May 16, 2023 (UTC)
Here is the link to the source I was talking about. MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 03:38, May 16, 2023 (UTC)

Misconception continuation

Wanna help continue the misconceptions page? MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 21:09, May 23, 2023 (UTC)

You agree that this wiki has not had any substantial edits as of recently (likely due to the mediocre-bad Mario products in recent times)? Also, this video right here at the 8:08 mark for some reason says that this random painting is meant to be a stylized picture of Monty Mole. Is this true or just a weird assumption this guy made? MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 02:32, May 28, 2023 (UTC)
That is fair to say, also looking at it now, the painting bears very little resemblance to a Monty Mole, also, sure! I'd be down for that, sorry if I haven't been as active here lately, I've been wrapped with other projects. The RPG Gamer (talk) 04:32, May 28, 2023 (UTC)
Yeah that is why I questioned it. If anything, it could also be a painting of a dog or something, as Monty Mole doesn’t even make any physical appearance in the movie so it would be weird if that one random painting in the real world was just a picture of a Monty Mole. Anyways, thanks for helping out with the wiki, do you mind also trying to add some extra stuff to the Monty Mole species pages as well? MontyMoleLoreMaster (talk) 04:43, May 28, 2023 (UTC)

New sorting method

Hello! I've sprung back into action here. If it's okay with you, I updated the style guide here to say that Mario franchise appearances are covered in History section (Mario takes priority because this is first and foremost a Mario wiki) whilst the others go into their respective sections (Yoshi appearances, Wario appearances, Crossover appearances, so forth). Check the Rex, Goomba, and 1-Up Mushroom articles as an example. It just has really begun to bug me when people try to call it all Mario.

I also gave this section of the Mario franchise page a bit of an update, and you'll notice I said that Donkey Kong is "partnered" as Mario Bros. for Game & Watch is the real first game with Mario in the title, but Donkey Kong arcade game is his first starring role as protagonist. Alongside Donkey Kong, you will also see The Legend of Zelda. I feel incredibly proud of what I typed up, so I'll relay it here for you:

"The The Legend of Zelda franchise is closely related to the Mario franchise, although its relation is more subtle and different than with the Donkey Kong franchise. The Legend of Zelda began in 1987, with the release of the titular game of the same name. The game was developed concurrently alongside Super Mario Bros., and since then, a mainline Super Mario platforming game has often been developed concurrently with a The Legend of Zelda game, such as Super Mario 64 with The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. Sometimes, Mario concepts were originally intended for The Legend of Zelda, such as Fire Bars. Mario enemies such as Chain Chomps, Bob-ombs, and Thwomps have commonly appeared throughout the 2D The Legend of Zelda games. Furthermore, variants of Mario enemies exclusively appear in the The Legend of Zelda franchise, such as Manhandlas, a large Piranha Plant variant that debuted in the first The Legend of Zelda, comparable to how Pouncers, a Thwomp variant in Wario Land: Super Mario Land 3, have not appeared outside the Wario games. Similarly, Octoombas, a variant of The Legend of Zelda's Octorok, have not appeared outside the Mario franchise. The Legend of Zelda can be considered one step away from being a Mario spinoff, and it even had an animated television show included as part of The Super Mario Bros. Super Show!."

Yoshi games introduced many Shy Guys, such as Fly Guys and Lantern Ghosts (latter hardly appears outside the Yoshi games), Pouncers only appear in the first Wario Land, Manhandlas and similar are recurring throughout The Legend of Zelda but not Mario, Octoombas do not appear in Zelda games. Literally the same situation between the few. I'm not trying to convince, it's just that I'm just ranting because the similarities between Mario and The Legend of Zelda connections are just like Mario to Yoshi and Wario each. The Donkey Kong series and its continued Mario vs. Donkey Kong series also takes elements from Mario franchise at times.

Hope you like these improvements! Bawitdaba (talk) 18:52, October 23, 2023 (UTC)
