Bobo (talk - history - links - logs - delete)[]

As is already abundantly clear on the page itself, "Bobo" is merely an alternate name used for Darth Sidious in a wildly inaccurate tale told by Vilmarh Grahrk. Current Wookieepedia rules state that aliases should only be their own pages under specific rules such as it being used by multiple people, which this page abundantly does not qualify for. The information here should be merged into Sid's Legends page and the page then deleted. SilverSunbird (talk) 06:07, 18 November 2021 (UTC)

  13. Per SilverSunbird. To me this situation really doesn't feel that much different from the alias one. I see no reason why the Palpatine article couldn't just cover this fictionalized version of the character. Imperators II(Talk) 08:47, 19 November 2021 (UTC)
  14. FWIW, I think it would've been best if the page was redirected to Palpatine/Legends and then a new article was created over the redirect OOM 224 15:10, 19 November 2021 (UTC)

Move to Bobo (fictional character)[]

  2. Gotta disagree with SilverSunbird. SorcererSupreme21 (talk) 23:49, 18 November 2021 (UTC)


For the record, turning it into a redirect is not an option because there already exists a new canon subject by that name whose page has yet to be created (see here). SilverSunbird (talk) 06:07, 18 November 2021 (UTC)

The talk page contains a discussion that brings up an interesting point: "Bobo" is less of a nickname/alias and more of a made-up character based on Palpatine. Does this not distinguish it from being a nickname/alias? SorcererSupreme21 (talk) 12:23, 18 November 2021 (UTC)

  • I would say not. I mean, the other characters of The Devaronian Version are given wildly different characterization than the norm, but they didn't get separate pages because the story uses their real names. Just because Palpatine was given a fake name by the narrator of the story doesn't mean its version of him is deserving of a separate page altogether. SilverSunbird (talk) 21:19, 18 November 2021 (UTC)
