Talk:Oil Panic

From SmashWiki, the Super Smash Bros. wiki

"Bucket Braking should link to Momentum Cancelling as a whole instead of directly linking to the section about Oil Panic."

Aren't people who click the bucket braking link more likely to be interested in everything about bucket braking, rather than everything about momentum canceling? Mako Shark (talk) 14:23, July 13, 2010 (UTC)

The information about "bucket braking" on the momentum cancelling page is almost the same as the information about it on the Oil Panic page. However, the Bucket Braking section on the Oil Panic page does not explain what Momentum Cancelling is and the process. As such, it would be more beneficial for readers to see what Momentum Cancelling is and the process of doing it instead of almost the same information they were reading before. Redirecing to the Oil Panic section on the Momentum Cancelling is rather pointless, unnecessary, and more importantly, impractical as readers do not need to see the same information again. "Bucket Braking" is a type of Momentum Cancelling, linking to the whole Momentum Cancelling article makes much more sense as readers would need to see what Momentum Cancelling is and how to do it for the information about momentum cancelling with Oil Panic to be of use to them.

Maximum damage in Smash 4[edit]

When I watched 17 second smash 3ds I notice Mr. Game and Watch absorbs one Pikachu's Thunder and its Oil Panic maximum damage is 62%. I think we should recalculate the damage. 98.220.74.197 23:57, 4 October 2014 (EDT)

Confusing naming[edit]

It can get confusing if someone wants to look at the original game's article (which doesn't exist yet) but not the move. Can someone change the name?—Preceding unsigned comment added by 174.99.113.62 (talkcontribs) 15:43, September 24, 2020

There's no reason to change the name because that is literally the name of the move. The game Oil Panic likely won't get an article because it hasn't been made playable in Smash games (such as through Masterpieces). --CanvasK (talk) 16:43, September 24, 2020 (EDT)
It is very unlikely that we will have an article covering the original game, especially since this article has an “Origin” section which covers that quite sufficiently. If we did end up getting a full article for that, it will probably just be given a title like “Oil Panic (game)”. But again, we already have a coverage of the original game right here in this article. That’s all we need on a wiki about Smash. If someone really wants to know more, perhaps they should be looking elsewhere. Black Vulpine of the 🦊Furry Nation🐺. Furries make the internets go! :3 18:19, September 24, 2020 (EDT)
