Re cut: This is a cut request caused by someone running afoul of The Problem with Pen Island and thinking that the small c version of the page is different from the big C one. Please don't cut it.

Yeah, since succeeding in the cut will effectively kill the real page.

This does give me an idea for a new entry on the Just for Fun subpage of TPWPI, though. =P

Cut declined. As noted, this was The Problem with Pen Island

What happened to the trope page? It just disappeared!!!

It's been properly namespaced.

Should we we include a fridge brilliance or trivia segment for more of the punny area levels, such as Peaceful Pier?

Why is Tiki Tong's name considered a spoiler? I realize the game obscures his appearance until you meet him, but the little information I could see a person gleaning from the name is stuff that they presumably would have expected. It becomes a weird sort of anti-twist where one starts expecting a bigger surprise as a result of all the spoiler tags.

Agreed, all the name would help you learn is that the leader is a tiki, which is readily obvious.

Excited for beating up Kremlings next time, aren't you, Donkey?

The article currently leaves it open to debate whether King K. Rool will appear. My impression was that Rare owns the IP for the Kremlings, REQUIRING Retro to come up with different baddies. Nintendo would own the IP for the Kongs, of course, so there's no problem with any of those characters.

Anyone know if a K. Rool appearance is truly a legal possibility?

Considering that King K. Rool and Kremlings have been appearing in several games since Rare left (even some of the Mario spin-offs), I'd say Nintendo owns them lock, stock and barrel. It's more like Nintendo just had no idea what Rare had been doing with the franchise (just look at Cranky's Character Derailment), and didn't properly follow up.

The game is out now, and he's not in. Sorry.

Maybe they'll get him off the mechanical island in the next game.

Dang it! Every time a page doesn't load, I have to press ENTER twice, resulting in a copy of that remark! So......yeeeeaaaah...

I'll remove Meaningless Lives soon - the game uses pretty much the same system as Mario Galaxy 1/2, having respawning lives just before hard sections. Any objections?
