Could the Toad Brigade be a Five-Man Band? I suppose we're used to band including the game's main hero.

I think making a different page for the sequel is unnecessary, the 2 games are already very alike.

Are the Wii-controlled minigames really Waggle? I personally didn't have trouble with the control and they don't have the shoehorned-in feel that a lot of Wii games have. Yes, Scrappy Mechanic is a Subjective Trope, but that implication irks me (not to mention I have a strong suspicion that people simply aren't patient enough to learn the new control scheme and thus blame the game for it).

Could someone please explain exactly how Rosalina is a Scrappy? As far as I can tell, she seems to be pretty well-liked.

To my knowledge, the only person here who is consistently added Rosalina as an example of The Scrappy is the user "Patrobotnik". Rosalina must be his/her personal Scrappy.

Rosalina? Scrappy?

Patrobotnik must've been high.

Really? She seemed to be hated by some people for apparently being a Mary Sue. Part of it must've been the Rosalina is God theory since a lot of people are tired of it. But I like her.

Removed these:

  • Crowning Moment of Awesome: Bowser laying siege on the Mushroom Kingdom and sending Mario into deep space. After an entire generation of gratuitous Villain Decay, seeing Bowser reverse it is refreshing.
    • Mario punching Bowser into the sun, grabbing the last Grand Star, and catching a falling Peach one-handed while flying ain't bad either.
      • In Galaxy 2, he punts Bowser into a black hole!
  • Crowning Moment of Funny: In Deep Dark Galaxy's purple coin mission, if you talk to the Toad Brigade captain before breaking any boxes, he'll say, "Scared? Don't worry, I'll protect you. If any ghosts come out, I'll send them running scared! Too bad I don't see any ghosts," then "No ghosts here! Too bad you don't get to see me in action." That's your cue to break open the box next to you and reveal the ghost and watch the Toad leader turn to jelly.
    • The ending of the sequel: As the baby Luma is reunited with Rosalina, he takes Mario's hat with him!
      • The fact that you can torment a miniaturized Bowser at one point in the credits.
  • Crowning Moment of Heartwarming: In the ending, when Rosalina appears to Mario, and explains the cycle of life in the universe, and brings him back to the Mushroom Kingdom, to be greeted with a homecoming from the cast.
    • One might almost shed a tear seeing The Lumas all jumping into the black hole.
    • If you get all 120 stars you can even see the Luma you had been traveling with waving at you from the new galaxy.
    • The ending of Rosalina's story falls under this.
  • Crowning Music of Awesome: The entire soundtrack.

Can we at least try to pick a single crowning moment for each of these before we add it back in?

not getting any answers, are you?
06:05:40 PM May 24th 2010
I think for the Crowning Music, we can just say both games' soundtracks were pretty spectacular, I don't know for the others. Why can't we just leave them in?
08:53:08 AM May 25th 2010
Because Komodin really really really really really thinks its all natter. And none of it will get on if he goes unopposed.
12:46:08 PM May 25th 2010
Uh, no. We shouldn't have to pick just one thing. They are all awesome, so they should all go in. The "single item" thing is for things like crowners and stuff. The idea that there should only be one hasn't been used in ages, despite being "Moment" not "Moments". I'm putting at least the music thing back in, I'll make it a little more specific though.
01:56:51 PM May 25th 2010
After thinking it over, yeah, you're right. I've added them back in the page, de-nattering them as much as possible.
04:52:33 PM May 25th 2010
Good, I think this works, de-nattering them was a good compromise.
08:31:01 PM Jul 19th 2013
Awesome: The introduction. Epic, epic, epic, especially compared to Sunshine's intro! Funny: Eh, nothing really comes to mind. Heartwarming: The stars sacrificing their lives in the end, sort of. Music: Gusty Garden Galaxy. Melty Molten in second. The finale level/boss battle in third.
