Forums: Index Proposals Include voice actors on specific games' character articles' infoboxes
Checkmark.png This is a closed discussion about an accepted proposed change on SmashWiki. It remains for archival purposes.

Strange title, I know, but I couldn't really come up with a better one. Anyways, an issue I noticed with specific game articles for characters is that they lack voice actors. I had never noticed they were missing. Voice actors are only mentioned through the respective character's general article. (Ex: Ganondorf instead of Ganondorf (SSBM)) I searched around and I haven't found any discussion pertaining to this issue, so I figured I might bring it up here. Currently, on specific games' character articles, voice actors are only ever mentioned in trivia points regarding the voice actor itself, which are extremely uncommon. A problem that could potentially be brought up is that infoboxes would become too large, however, that doesn't really apply here. There is a ton of space available below these infoboxes that adding voice actors wouldn't really present a size issue.

tl;dr: Character article infoboxes are missing voice actors. We should add them. Pokebub (talk) 04:12, 16 October 2018 (EDT)

Support Never really understood why they haven't had them. VoqéoT 05:16, 16 October 2018 (EDT)
Support Where the information is known I see no reason not to add it. That said, do different regions/languages have different voice actors? – Emmett 06:51, 16 October 2018 (EDT)
Some do. Mostly characters that have dialogue, like Sonic in Smash 4. VoqéoT 07:14, 16 October 2018 (EDT)
Absolutely! How is it nobody thought of this before? Black Vulpine of the Furry Nation. Furries make the internets go! :3 07:28, 16 October 2018 (EDT)
Support I'm surprised it wasn't there to begin with. — NokiiSigH.png Nokii (T·C·L) 09:39, 16 October 2018 (EDT)

Eh, weak support. It wouldn’t hurt anything, but I see no reason it needs to be. 08:02, 16 October 2018 (EDT) Blueflame105

Support as long as it's contained to only the Smash series Some characters have many VAs outside of smash, and I don't want the list to be over long and pointless like that. Serpent SKSig.png King 09:45, 16 October 2018 (EDT)

Of course. Outside voice actors would be outside the scope of the wiki and wouldn't make sense to include on specific game articles anyways. Pokebub (talk) 12:09, 16 October 2018 (EDT)

Let's go for it! I support this one and I love character articles with voice actors like Master Hand (Xander Mobus), Sonic (Roger Craig Smith), and Bowser Jr. (Caety Sagoian). Dragonfirebreath25 (talk) 10:39, 16 October 2018 (EDT)

Support. This is such an ubiquitous thing that it's honestly surprising that it hasn't been implemented yet... DryKirby64 (talk) 16:18, 16 October 2018 (EDT)

Adding a quick note that I implicitly meant that with the same caveat as Serpent King as well. Sniffnoy (talk) 02:58, 26 October 2018 (EDT)
