I just noticed: there's no Waluigi love! Nobody was chomping at the bit to do a Waluigi bio
BUT, with that in mind, I noticed on the first post that you didn't like speculations in the bios. What, then, is done with characters, like Waluigi, whose backgrounds are pure speculation? Do we just go "He plays Tennis, hangs out with Wario, really whiny"? I ask because I added a little non-canon stuff in the Kamek bio I wrote, and was wondering if A. that's enough to discredit it, and B. how far is enough?
Erm... well... if it's really wild and out-there then it will discredit it, and I shall either not use it, or edit bits of it out.
Remember, though, if there's very little to say about a character - don't say too much at all. Keep it as concise as possible... sometimes that means it will be really long, sometimes really short. Never feel like you're not doing a character justice by writing a short piece - if it's written well then it's all good.
Read my Fox McCloud N-Stars piece for an idea of how far is enough. I embellished on Fox's early years in that one... which reminds me... I should probably add Starfox Assault's story as well.
Edit: Oh, and Waluigi RULES. I'll do his written piece AND his artwork... unless someone beats me to it.

I would love to see it become a full character database as well. I'm putting the finishing touches to the Samus story, and it should be up by tomorrow. As if by way of fate, Channel 4 was showing the film "Alien" tonight... ahh, lovely.
Eh, I'm feeling bored, and I feel like doing something for this section other than revising the DK bio. How's a Mother Brain bio sound? It'll be a snap. I may also do bios for Ridley and Kraid, as well as Ganon/Ganondorf.
Sorry all... I was stolen away all day today to do things like shop for food. All of my plans went out the window... especially when I ended up taking screenshots to fill in the holes in the site (more of them to come, by the way)
But hopefully more Stars will be with us very shortly.
The Mother Brain was created by the ancient Chozo race to control the autonomic functions and monitor the environment of the planet Zebes. However, it grew sentient and betrayed its creators. The Chozo were forced to deactivate Mother Brain and seal it away in the depths of the planet.
Years after the Chozo abandoned Zebes, it was discovered by the Space Pirates. They found the remnants of Mother Brain while exploring the planet, and reactivated it. The re-awakened Mother Brain joined the Space Pirates, becoming one of their leaders, and the continued to serve as the nervous system of Zebes, now the pirate’s home base, in the subterranean domain of Tourian.
When the Space Pirates started reproducing Metroids to serve as weapons, they were attacked by the bounty hunter Samus Aran. After defeating Kraid and Ridley, the head Space Pirates, Samus entered Tourian for the final showdown against Mother Brain. After destroying Mother Brain’s life-support systems (the Zeebetites), Samus attacked cracked open the glass container that housed Mother Brain. It’s tried to defend itself with a series of automated lasers, but in the end, Samus was able to destroy Mother Brain. Afterwards, a self-destruct sequence for Zebes was activated, and Samus escaped before the planet exploded.
Some time after, the Space Pirates were somehow able to rebuild Zebes and Mother Brain, who once again became the planet’s core. The Space Pirates proceeded to steal the last living Metroid, and once again tried to create an army of Metroids. Samus, again, intervened and after defeating the rebuilt Ridley and Kraid as well as two other major Space Pirates, traveled to Tourian to battle Mother Brain. The first part of the battle was a carbon copy of their first encounter, but after Samus seemingly destroyed Mother Brain, it revealed that it was attached to a large, mechanical body. Mother Brain proceeded to pummel Samus into submission with lasers and bombs from it’s, and a devastating blasts of psychic energy. But just when it looked like Mother Brain would finish Samus for good, the stolen Metroid (mutated to monstrous size due to Space Pirate experimentation) latched onto it and leeched a large quantity of energy, subduing Mother Brain. The Metroid then began giving the energy to Samus, who it viewed as its ‘mother’. Mother Brain recovered, and then destroyed the Metroid. Before it died, the Metroid gave Samus a massive power boost, allowing her to finally destroy Mother Brain for good. Once again, a self-destruct sequence was activated upon Mother Brain’s termination, and Samus escaped before the planet exploded.
Interesting Facts *On the Captain N: Game Master cartoon from the 80s and early 90s, Mother Brain was the leader of the main villains. It was different from the game version, as it had a humanoid face and was from the planet ‘Metroid’. It was voiced by Levi Stubbs of the famous Motown group The Four Tops. *There has been an ongoing debate on whether Mother Brain or Ridley is the true leader of the Space Pirates. In the first game, because Mother Brain was the last boss and Ridley was only a sub-boss, it was assumed that it was the leader of the Space Pirates. This was supported by first Metroid, the in-game intro of Super Metroid, and the Nintendo Power Super Metroid comic. But, according to Super Metroid’s manual, Metroid: Zero Mission and it’s manual, and both official comics, Ridley was the leader of the Space Pirates. Some fans say that a bad translation in the first game’s manual and Super Metroid is the reason for the misclassification of Mother Brain’s position.
Nester the Lark: Also, I know YL isn't into speedruns, but he might be interested to know that RPG Limit Break is having a Gust marathon all weekend, including several Atelier games.

nocturnal YL: Ah… Bad timing. I didn't read this until now, when it's almost over.

Nester the Lark: Well, if you're still interested, they'll be uploading the replays to their YouTube channel later this week.

Shrikeswind: I like that Mayles put her back in her kneepads. What's the last game they were in? One of the Kongas? It was a good look for her, albeit very 90's.

Shrikeswind: The jokes call to me, their siren song a temptation I can hardly bear, yet I must stay my tongue. Confound my dirty sense of humor.

Nester the Lark: The replies I see to anything Nintendo posts on Twitter are probably an indication as to why they abandoned Miiverse and decided that social media should be someone else's responsibility.

nocturnal YL: As mentioned in Twitter, I'm currently playing Atelier Meruru DX. I'm thinking about writing reviews for the Arland series afterwards, as well as making a second Nintendo Switch review video after I finish either this or my next game.

Nester the Lark: ^ I would be interested in seeing your reviews of the Arland games.

Nester the Lark: So, there's been Hyrule Warriors and Fire Emblem Warriors. But guys, how about this: Punch-out Warriors! It's like Punch-out, but you fight all of your opponents at once!
Nov 12, 2020 12:12:00 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: Sounds punchy, but unless it's a real knock-out I don't think it'd be a hit.

Shrikeswind: You know, you'd figure eventually I'd get a hang of the whole "personal tradition" thing. You'd figure.
