Talk:Non-playable character

From SmashWiki, the Super Smash Bros. wiki


The various bosses should be listed simply as "bosses"; not that I don't feel that each of the bosses could be listed, but certainly not in bold face or anything; just as the adventure mode enemies are addressed. Zixor (talk) 19:30, 26 August 2008 (UTC)

Giga Bowser[edit]

Why does it have Gig Bowser as an unplayable character if giga bowser is playable (as bowser's final smash)?--MỸŠŦЄЯỸЊӘҒҒ TALK 04:13, 27 January 2009 (UTC)

Not really the same thing. The page is talking about the Giga Bowser that can be harmed and defeated in Melee. GutripperSpeak if you are worthy


what about that weird giant diddy and dark bowser?Lucas-IV- Paper TosserLucas kirby.jpg 09:28, 19 May 2011 (EDT)

Giant Diddy is playable via mushroom, and what Dark Bowser? MegaTron1XD:p 10:18, 19 May 2011 (EDT)
Dark Bowser = from the SSE.--Wolf rulez! Yes he does! 10:19, 19 May 2011 (EDT)
Huge dark weird diddy kong = from SSELucas-IV- Paper TosserLucas kirby.jpg 10:21, 19 May 2011 (EDT)
Both would be considered under the Subspace Army. If you want, you can make a False Characters section. MegaTron1XD:p 10:24, 19 May 2011 (EDT)

I strongly support this move. Not only is the term Non-Playable Character more commonplace, it also makes more sense to use than Unplayable Character. Berrenta (talk) 09:51, 21 October 2014 (EDT)

I also strongly support the move. I've never heard "unplayable character" outside of SmashWiki, only NPC/non-playable character. PikaSamus (talk) PikaSamus 10:23, 21 October 2014 (EDT)
Strong support. Per above. Unknown the Hedgehog 12:14, 26 October 2014 (EDT)

Melee Stage Hands[edit]

I added in a section about this, but it was removed for not being the "kind of stuff we're talking about." I would like to submit that there isn't another article talking about these characters and that we already include "common enemies" on here which are basically items. In addition to stage hands and common enemies, I think this list of non-playables should include item characters such as Mr. Saturn and all of the Pokemon. JiffyD (talk) 18:38, 19 April 2017 (EDT)

Every stage that has these characters has a section on them (or at least mentions them). Most of them even have their own articles (I ran out of words, but here's more). I think that's enough, really. This pages' scope is mostly for fully controllable (by use of debug tools or hacks) characters with full, fleshed out movesets. This is why SSE and Smash Run enemies aren't here (SSE does have a link to a better article for it, but eh whatever). Serpent SKSig.png King 19:26, 19 April 2017 (EDT)
Oh okay that makes sense. Its weird that the "common enemies" would be included though. JiffyD (talk) 02:04, 20 April 2017 (EDT)
