Wikipedia doesn't have an article for, for example, every single Simpsons character. So why do we need entire articles for characters that only appear on a single trophy or sticker? I say unless said characters have a huge storyline and/or impact on their games, such as Midna, there's no reason they can't simply be merged to the game's page or the universe's page. It's really ridiculous to make an article that's a mere two sentences long, half of which simply describes sticker effects. The same should go for many background characters. The Fish article was merged to Summit, I don't see why Pidgit should be much different. - Gargomon251 (talk) 02:57, 3 July 2008 (UTC)

I agree with you 100%. Trivial articles should be merged or deleted. - GalaxiaD (talk) 03:25, 3 July 2008 (UTC)

Well, I still think The Fish was too cool to be merged, but I do agree with you. Clarinet Hawk (talk · contributions) 03:25, 3 July 2008 (UTC)

Well the individual articles on stickers arn't really needed, but we could merge trophy articles based on how their catagorised in the game, but we may need multiple pages for the longer lists. Learner4 (talk) 15:57, 6 July 2008 (UTC)

Because if we did that then the Smashwiki would only have less than 1000 articles and very rarely would new articles be added.Besides trophies and stickers are features of the smash series implanted into the game thus making them vital. - Hatake91 (talk) 00:55, 10 July 2008 (UTC)
