Nominating the Article for deletion[edit]

Since Shadow the Hedgehog is not a relevant subject for a wikipedia article. I dispute it's usefulness as a source of credible information. After all much like the sonic the Hedgehog Article it smacks with Fan Fiction unrelated to the video game franchise, and if the Sonic Article was not semi protected I would nominate that for deletion to!

P.S. To the writers of this Article, you need to grow up and lay of the weed because it's clearly slowed your mind! 96.2.110.63 (talk) 01:38, 5 June 2013 (UTC)

Oppose - While I have had virtually no involvement in the writing of this article, I will ask you to bear in mind WP:Civility and refrain from making personal attacks on other editors. That said, I agree that this article needs some work, and I just made an edit to reduce some of the fluff (in particular, the "Shadow Androids" section seemed non-notable); however, I do not agree that this article should be deleted or with your assertions. In all honesty, I do not see how your explanation validly supports deletion under any of the criteria stated in Wikipedia's deletion policy. For one thing, video game characters from numerous franchises have Wikipedia articles, and it is generally accepted that major characters are notable subjects worthy of inclusion on Wikipedia, (see, e.g., Mario, Wario, Link, Midna, Master Chief), so your desire to remove characters like Shadow and Sonic for not being "relevant subjects for Wikipedia" falls flat under Wikipedia's notability guidelines and is likely to be dismissed by most editors. Also, what portions of this article are derived from fan faction? I do not see any from my review of it, though I haven't read it entirely thoroughly; but either way, perhaps a better solution would be to remove those pieces of information than to delete the entire article. For the most part, the information in this article appears to be sourced to reliable sources. Perhaps you can elaborate on your position some more, but at this time, I am unconvinced that any reason for deletion under Wikipedia's deletion policy exists (nor do I see how fixing the article's current shortcomings isn't a better solution). –Prototime (talk · contribs) 04:36, 5 June 2013 (UTC)
Oppose - Article is full of 3rd Party Reliable Sources giving both Verifiability and proving Notability. The need for cleanup of is noted. CIGraphix (talk) 01:03, 7 June 2013 (UTC)

Phase 2 The New Approach[edit]

I was not surprised that my efforts to have the article deleted failed. So if I can't have it deleted then I shall re-construct it so that it better educates the reader about the game franchise. What does alot of the glorified fan fiction in the article have to do with the game's marketability or impact on the user in general?

As always I expect the typical resistance from other writers but they should carefully review the revised article and see for themselves, the obvious difference.

One should not think that they can somehow bully me out of the system. I do not and will never recant o the statements I made about the individuals who crafted the article and my continued efforts with the "Shadow The Hedgehog" Article shall speak for themselves.

Thank You! 96.2.110.63 (talk) 15:50, 7 June 2013 (UTC)

Wikipedia always needs passionate and knowledgeable editors to improve its articles with verifiable information, so your contributions are more than welcome; by all means, you should not view disagreement with your views in Wikipedia's consensus decision-making process as bullying—disagreement is a fact of life on Wikipedia for all of us editors. Thus, hopefully you will not perceive other editors who disagree with you as bullying you, and likewise you will strive not to personally attack editors whose edits you disagree with. Good luck with your edits! –Prototime (talk · contribs) 16:15, 7 June 2013 (UTC)
You recently removed verifiable material from the reception section and replaced it with "The character and it's related games and comic books have seen modest popularity in the past few years, but has had an adverse mental health effect on it's less stable fans. It has caused some rioting in a few small Texas towns that have led to various acts of rape, murder, and cannibalism as reported on CNN August fifth 2006", sourcing it to a non-existent CNN link. Is this some sort of joke? I have restored the reception section to its previous status; if you don't have some sort of legitimate source to back up this wild claim, it will be treated as vandalism. –Prototime (talk · contribs) 21:55, 7 June 2013 (UTC)

Shadow Loves Guns!?[edit]

Okay, so I know this is totally irrelevant to Shadow himself, but I've seen so many things about Shadow having closets full of MK60's! I completely disagree with this. He may have a gun in the Shadow the Hedgehog game, but that doesn't mean he loves it. It's probably the most effective way to kill the Black Arms except Black Doom. Although, I'm not so sure since I never played the game XD. Basically, guns can be more efficient, and unlike chaos control and all those other moves, guns don't require energy, except aiming and pulling the trigger and reloading. Other than that, no physical force for the wielder whatsoever. I personally agree with his chaos abilities being the most powerful. But seriously guys, an MK60 for a wife?! Really!? It's so stupid! And YES, I have seen such articles about that! — Preceding unsigned comment added by Omega Yagami (talkcontribs) 00:46, 20 October 2016 (UTC)
