These pages are starting to overlap the Anime and Manga sections devoted to cards in them. Do we want to ditch those sections and merge them into here, and dedicate coverage of them to the Anime and Manga pages and remove them from these ones? ie - Dark Magician, Blue-Eyes, etc.
Also, it got no attention on another page, but do we want one page for all prominent anime and manga cards, or perhaps one page for each series like the original series has now?
Given the sizes of the other pages, I have reservations on any merge between them.
I have to ask: why the sudden decision to delete characters and archetypes deemed not notable enough? Sort of came out of nowhere, and seems a bit unilateral.
Many of the ones I removed are archetypes of only a handful of cards, like the Malicevorous or Lightrays, or like Behemoth and Dark Blade are cards with no story behind them and no importance to the anime, manga or TCG/OCG. That's mostly how I decided on what should go — little importance to anime or manga, small archetype, no significant card backstory. Ggagagigo and Freed may be small archetypes too, but they have an extensive and detailed backstory, so they're more notable than something like Dark Blade.
The reason is the pages are already huge, and in time will only get bigger as more archetypes are created and old ones expanded. There's no need to give every single monster that appears on card art a section.
I am really sure that minor characters have his place in character pages.
But there's a difference between a minor character and a character that doesn't exist. Behemoth King of All Animals isn't a minor character, as a character he doesn't exist. He has no backstory, no significant role in the anime or manga, he is not a particularly powerful or noteworthy card in real life, and he appears in a handful of card art. St. Joan and the Roboyarus are more notable than Behemoth, and they are not notable.
A card like Kozaky or Gagagigo on the other hand have detailed card stories, appear in a lot of art, and have numerous cards related to them as a small archetype. The Divine Dragons and Elemental Lords have no backstory, but their cards are notable and there's several of them.
I'll also list here the cards I'm looking at for removal from the remaining pages (not right now, but if you wanna discuss them for the future I'm open).
I'll note for others why I kept them when you may think I wouldn't.
A lot of the cards have stories despite not being part of the anime though (see Inpachi).
......you don't pay attention do you? -_-
Think we should create a subcategory for Spellcaster Synchros, including Tempest, Arcanite, and Explosive Magician?
Done. I think that section needs some revisions.
