Huh, E. Gadd would make for a decent princess.

Peach Battle is a sponsor that appears in Mario Kart 7. Although exactly what the sponsor does is unclear, it appears to have some relation to Princess Peach and battles.

Quote
Princess Peach is Princess Peach's racing team

In fact, our current lists of sponsors pages are home to (presumably) fantastically deep lore.

Quote
The 1-Up Mushroom Car Insurance Group is one of the sponsors that appears in Mario Kart 8 and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. The company presumably acts as an insurer for the Karts, Bikes and ATVs in the game, and probably uses 1-Up Mushrooms to regenerate any damaged or broken vehicles

Quote from: Bob-omb Plugs
The company produces plugs which resemble Bob-ombs, but replace the fuse with the plug pin itself.

Means of Advertisement
Graffiti

Quote from: Chain Chomp Racing Chains
The company presumably produces racing chains from the chains on the back of Chain Chomps for the racers to use.

Quote from: Green Service
Presumably, the company manages the plants around the courses, specifically the lawns, and appears to use Munchers to do it

Quote
Larry Lights is a sponsor that appears in Mario Kart 8 and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. Presumably, the company produces lights and is run by Larry Koopa.

Quote
It is presumably a painting company run by Ludwig von Koopa, which is most likely responsible for the graffiti in Super Bell Subway.

Quote from: Mario Automobile Association
Presumably, the company is an insurer for the vehicles used in the game, and uses Fishin' Lakitus to recover the Karts, Bikes and ATVs.

Quote from: Morton Construction
The company is presumably run by Morton Koopa Jr. and carries out construction work and provides construction equipment and tools.

Quote from: Paratroopa Airlines
The company, presumably run by Koopa Paratroopas, appears to run flights to some of the courses in the game, so presumably transports the racers to these locations for the races.

Quote from: Super Marine World
Presumably, the company is run by Dolphins and sells diving equipment, including the goggles that they wear.

I knew about Kuriboh being a Yu Gi Oh monster first so knowing the Goomba Japanese name made me go, "wait, isn't that the name of that duel monster?"

The bee didn't replace him. Waluigi would've been a midheavy weight if he got in. Who's the newcomer midheavy weight?

I think it has to do partially with the cutscene in Mario Tennis. Luigi taunted at Waluigi. Looks like their rivalry was already there, though. Maybe Wario spread nasty lies about Luigi to try to get Waluigi for his cause to make the rival pair miserable and Waluigi is just a proud, arrogant guy who doesn't like similarly named guys especially if they beat him at tennis. Many times.

True. I think you have a point ultimately. I just learned that MarioWiki had an odd amount of Smash Bros. Coverage long before we drew the line (when MarioWiki covered Banjo and Conker) and created policy page. This was also before SmashWiki used to be wikia (if I recall correctly) and didn't join NIWA, that Smash Bros. gap in NIWA that MarioWiki used to cover is kinda moot.

We should not keep the information just because we do it better than the real Smash Wiki. While this sounds selfish we should try to focus on ourMario content, and they should focus on their Smash content. If people only want to edit Smash articles, wouldn't it be better to have all of the NIWA Smash content on the Smash wiki, to bring editors that want to edit Smash there to make it overall higher quality? Hosting a mini smash wiki is like having one Mario Wiki and one that half-covers the franchise. Honestly, having so many articles on stuff that is unrelated to Mario is a bit too comprehensive still. As for the main game page articles I want them to remain roughly the same, listing the gameplay modes, and stuff, with the only difference being that on the pages' lists of characters, items and stages we will only include the Mario ones.
I can't agree with you here. Aside from simply appearing we're more focused on our mission, I'm not really comfortable on gutting a lot of (mostly small) articles on the wiki only because they're somewhat tangential from the Mario series, but still arguably relevant to the Mario franchise. As for people wanting to edit only Smash articles, having interests in Mario and Smash can overlap; people have accounts both here and on SmashWiki, probably editing similar information. I don't see the problem with that either? I don't think MarioWiki has a "mini Smash Wiki" as much as Mario has a "mini DK wiki". Tou have to answer, why do we cover DK games if they're only tangentially related to Mario, maybe less tangential than Smash but it's still not Mario; question is easy to answer regarding DK's relationship to Mario series. We already don't cover Smash as we comprehensively do DK per that DK has a stronger relationship with Mario and stronger relationships get more coverage and vice versa.

ewwwww...... very ugly picture.... I'm afraid these mp pics are getting worse.... It's is a bad portrayal of Mario's style. All of the characters are either doing something extremely boring, or they look weird. And the mountain that their standing on looks just like the n64 graphics, which not only looks bad, but makes too much unneeded contrast. OMG!! what is with these bad MP pictures!!! This one has to be one of the most demented yet!!!

remember featured images?

All I see is Baby Peach with eyes open, Baby Peach with eyes half-open.

I don't see the overall problem in having only some Smash information in a MarioWiki. It helps our wiki appear complete, but not overly comprehensive. So Mario fans who already are in the wiki can continue surfing in the wiki and following links. We already have short articles on Smash exclusive characters and have links to more in-depth articles to SmashWiki. Also, I don't think "wasting" editors time is a valid argument either, since as BBQ Turtle said, it's a volunteer job and people don't seem to mind uploading images and making big tables. I also don't think it "distracts" editors or readers either; isn't having people stick around to read our articles a good thing?

But there is a point to be made there, that other NIWA wikis don't cover Smash Bros. as comprehensively as we do. Nookipedia, for instance, just uses in-line links to the appropriate wikis. I'm not sure if it's just that NIWA wikis are generally smaller than MarioWiki, but even Bulbapedia, one of the bigger wikis, does this. But on the other hand, how MarioWiki handles at-a-glance information for an individual article Smash Bros. is better than even SmashWiki (a lot of information in SmashWiki is just linked to other articles), I think actually unmatched in other wikis. I don't know how you want to handle the main articles for each Smash Bros. game as other NIWA wikis don't seem to be a really good example to follow. I think how we do general information for Smash Bros. articles might be partially the reason we cover Smash Bros. information so more thoroughly than the average NIWA wiki.

I'm pretty agnostic on the Smash Bros. coverage, but I'm like middle guard who's accustomed to the coverage and it didn't seem to be much of a problem until we kinda creeped, but we already scaled back on it.

DK's even more barely looks any different.
