No offense, but this seems a lot like a mix between Super Mario Wiki's article and Smash Wiki's article... - BattleFranky202 20:42, 4 April 2009 (UTC)
- Well, there's not like we can write about something completely different. I thought a list of moves would be good, and I used Smash wiki as one of my sources. The subspace scene can’t really be written much different. I haven't copied anything, but if you think you can make it better, give it a shot. Preceding unsigned comment added by Ville10 (talk)
- I have no problem with using other sites as sources. The only thing I do have a problem with is copying and pasting. I went to a few major Wikis, including both that were mentioned, and found nothing wrong. What was placed in the article may've been similar to what was place on the other Wikis, though that's like saying that two competing encyclopedias have the same information, but just worded differently - if it's fact then that doesn't mean you shouldn't add it to the Wiki since it's already on another one. There's not much history behind the character, so it's not surprising that the three articles may be similar. Talk
Mr. Game & Watch is not from Game & Watch
I think this article is very misleading in saying that Mr. G&W is from classic Game & Watch games: he's not. He's an original Super Smash Bros. character designed to look like the generic Game & Watch character, but he's not from any game. It'd be as if they made an "Atari Man" designed to look like a generic person in Atari 2600 graphics, and then we started saying that every person from every Atari game ever has always been Atari Man.
Mr. G&W borrows moves from many Game & Watch games, but those games always had their own unrelated protagonists, like a juggler, an exterminator, and even the Mario Brothers! And this article itself points out how the characters from the games never look the same!
Do we want to say that retroactively Super Smash Bros. revealed all those characters to be Mr. G&W assuming different forms? Maybe. But it should be explained: that is just SSB doing its thing, adding details to the characters' backstories and tying various games together, it's a retcon. Like in the Soccer Ball trophy that says it appeared in Soccer and Super Mario Strikers: nobody goes around saying that when they made Mario Strikers they used the same ball from Soccer!--Kombatgod (talk) 01:34, January 18, 2018 (UTC)
