Wait, are the examples supposed to be about debates? Why would we even want to document wars like that?

I removed this from the article due to the Natter going on. Paste it back if you must. Oh, and this is in regards to whether or not the spinoff games of the Super Mario series are canon.
  • "This is contradicted by Professor E. Gadd's appearance in Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time, making reference to Luigi's Mansion, as well as references between Super Mario Sunshine, Luigi's Mansion}}, and Super Mario World. Also, a Hammer Bro in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door mentions his grandfather being in World 7-1 of Super Mario Bros.''
    • A character in a spin-off who was also in a main game doesn't make the spin-off canon. If that was true, Mario would be the most obvious indicator, not E. Gadd. The Hammer Bro mentioning World 7-1 doesn't make the game canon either. It's like saying PM is canon because one of Mario's main attacks is jumping on enemies like he did in the canonical games."

As he pointed out, a character appearing in the main games and the spinoff games does not really make it canon. Neither do references to past games. Still needed to be removed because of the Natter, though.
