Donkey Kong and Mario got their start together. He isn't a spinoff of the mario series. If anything Mario is a spinoff of Donkey Kong. They Coexist. Not a sub franchise people.
That's true but they don't want to change it I suppose.
- You could also argue that Yoshi is part of the Mario series, but it doesn't matter. The wiki follows what the smash symbols do. Nothing else. Mr. Anon (talk) 05:29, June 10, 2010 (UTC)
If that's true then DK shouldn't be counted as a Sub-Universe since it has it's own emblem. I think it would be better if it was just counted as a Co-existing Universe rather then a Sub-Universe which suggests that DK's series was a spinoff of Mario's series. When in actuality it was the otherway around.
