Talk:Waddle Dee Army

From SmashWiki, the Super Smash Bros. wiki

I made this article. I do not now how to sign my work, or put an image in. Can someone do the latter of which for me? --Oxico 06:51, December 6, 2007 (EST)

Tell Me how[edit]

How is this Final SMash Used in the SE? I don't recall any cutscence that had Dedede whistle and then have 50 some Waddle Dees run around in every direction like if they were on fire.--User:Mudkipz (talk) 12:48, 18 December 2008 (UTC)

Well, no, but he did summon countless Waddle Dees to cart away Wario so Dedede could steal his Cargo. Technically, it was a Waddle Dee Army. -- JacktonTALK 12:54, 18 December 2008 (UTC)
Then speak no futher than "Well, No". It doesn't matter if it is simalar (Which I really don't think it is). If there wasn't a whistle then Waddle Dees and Doos running around in every Direction like If they were on Fire, It didn't appear.--User:Mudkipz (talk) 20:21, 18 December 2008 (UTC)

Gordo frequency[edit]

"While in general the frequency of each minion type is the same as the Waddle Dee Toss, Gordos are slightly more common (having a 11.8% chance to appear, instead of a 8.2% one)." This sentence negates itself. If Gordos have a different frequency, then either the Waddle Doos or Waddle Dees or both must have a different frequency. – SmiddleT 16:43, 10 July 2011 (EDT)

This doesn't belong in the trivia section, by the way. – SmiddleT 16:45, 10 July 2011 (EDT)

Big Gay Dance[edit]

Is it okay if I write that the dance has been dubbed, " the Big Gay Dance in a machinima, and has become memetic?King KirbyD KirbyHeadSSBM.png 01:06, 13 April 2012 (EDT)

Well, if it can be noted on Egg Lay that it was given a nickname that I personally find disgusting, I don't see why not. RickTommy (talk) 01:34, 13 April 2012 (EDT)
Its not really appropriate since the name came from someone else other than Nintendo, so I don't really think it will be necessary. ..... The StarCraft NintenNESsprite.png 09:10, 13 April 2012 (EDT)
We take note of names like Sparta Kick, and that name is certainly popular. I'll leave it up to seomeone else to decide. Toast Wii U Logo Transparent.pngltimatumTransparent Swadloon.png 09:22, 13 April 2012 (EDT)
Coming from Nintendo or not is irrelevant. Notability is what matters, and I would consider this nickname to be notable. Clarinet Hawk (talk · contributions) 09:42, 13 April 2012 (EDT)
I have to question the notability of the joke; Know Your Meme does not recognise the joke as a meme, and comments in the entry state that there has been little spread of the joke (which itself prevents it from being a "meme" in the first place); a Google Search also only gives afew results directly or indirectly pertaining to the meme, with the Video results being mostly clips from Brawl Taunts. Compare to the Wombo Combo, which has significant spread outside of the Smash Bros. scene, as seen with the multitude of variations of the joke in videos; comments also say that the meme has gained prominence in other games, with Team Fortress 2 particularly outlined.
tl;dr Big Gay Dance is a line from a dumb video, not a meme of notability. If someone can provide proof that the joke is used extensively in the Smash community, such as on SWF or similar sources, then I guess it can stay. --- ReiDemon, Author Extraordinaire, 18:35, 13 April 2012 (EDT)
Unlike regular wikipedia, we shouldn't need third party notability so know you meme is less important. Also, if we held everything to the womb combo standard, well we'd miss a good amount... I do remember this being something that I saw often when the game first came out, mostly in reference to the video in question. Clarinet Hawk (talk · contributions) 19:50, 13 April 2012 (EDT)
I would have to agree with CHawk here. This isn't a meme as it never spread outside Smash. That however, doesn't mean the name itself isn't a notable nick name of the move inside the Smash community, which is really all that matters to get a mention. A whole article devoted to it on the other hand, would need to be something of Wombo Combo status. Omega Tyrant TyranitarMS.png 22:08, 13 April 2012 (EDT)
