About the split request[edit]

This article is currently undergoing a nomination for featurement, so we'll have to deal with this as quickly as possible. Apparently AwsomeKirbyStarAllies (Talk) requested that the article be split into Waddle Doo (anime), Waddle Doo (Epic Yarn), and Parasol Waddle Doo. Here's my views on that:

-We have Parasol Waddle Dee, so it would only be consistent if we had an article on Parasol Waddle Doo. I support this.

-Waddle Doo (anime) is a unique character who, while covered just fine on this page, would benefit from having his own article. I also support this.

-Waddle Doo (Epic Yarn), while stated in-game to be fakes of the real thing, are not unique characters, behave the same way as the real thing, and the real thing doesn't appear in that game at all. That's covered just fine on this article, and I do not support it being split.

So, that's my views on this. How about you guys? -YFJ (talk · edits) 17:32, 28 April 2019 (UTC)

I suspect there is no need to split this article per se. That said, feel free to make those extra pages if you want to, and link to them from the Waddle Doo page. --Fubaka (talk) 18:24, 28 April 2019 (UTC)
I too think we should split it. Obsessive Mario Fan (talk) 23:35, 1 May 2019 (UTC)
Which ones do you think should be split, and why? -YFJ (talk · edits) 01:15, 2 May 2019 (UTC)
As I said, there isn't really any need to remove content from the Waddle Doo page as it is now, but I do support the creation of those extra pages, where the information can be expanded further. Feel free to do so at any time. --Fubaka (talk) 02:58, 2 May 2019 (UTC)
I just created the Parasol Waddle Doo article. It's quite tiny and could use a lot of editing, but it's at least there. I might add more to it later. Obsessive Mario Fan (talk) 17:05, 18 May 2019 (UTC)

Also, Waddle Doo in the anime is a unique character who needs its own article. How about you? AwsomeKirbyStarAllies (talk) 01:44, 9 May 2019 (UTC)

If a page is made for Yarn Waddle Doo, should there also be a page made for Yarn Waddle Dee? JRJ007 (talk) 15:11, 9 May 2019 (UTC)

Yeah, that would be going down a rabbit trail that I really don't want to follow. That's best covered on the main articles. -YFJ (talk · edits) 16:07, 9 May 2019 (UTC)

At this point, anime Waddle Doo and Parasol Waddle Doo have been split, so the only one left would be the Epic Yarn one. Personally, I think that this last one shouldn't be split; giving Dedede and Meta Knight separate pages for their yarn designs is already pushing it, but to give a yarn design of a generic enemy who behaves identically to the normal design a separate article seems like regurgitated info and nothing more, and there's no real benefit to splitting it. That's my two cents, anyway. Any final thoughts on this, or should I go ahead and remove the split tag? -YFJ (talk · edits) 04:42, 12 June 2019 (UTC)

I think that makes sense. If a Yarn Waddle Doo article was made, so would a Yarn Waddle Dee, Bronto Burt, etc. When they all are the exact same as their normal counterparts except for them being made of yarn. --JRJ007 12:16, 12 June 2019 (UTC)
I think none of the yarn variants should be split. That could also open a can of worms splitting clay characters from Kirby and the Rainbow Curse, too. Obsessive Mario Fan (talk) 20:41, 12 June 2019 (UTC)

Final check before feature[edit]

I notice there was some hullabaloo regarding whether this page needed to be split or not, but I see no remaining tags for improvement on this page. Are we clear to feature it, or is there some more work you would like done? --Fubaka (talk) 20:42, 13 June 2019 (UTC)

With the split tag gone, it's all clear for featurement! -YFJ (talk · edits) 20:47, 13 June 2019 (UTC)
Alrighty. This article will have passed the 8 week wait period on the 17th. I will put it up then. --Fubaka (talk) 20:48, 13 June 2019 (UTC)
