With the introduction of the Character & People Database Guidelines the following entries will be affected:

These characters will be merged as they are multiple personalities:
- Hallelujah Haptism --> Allelujah Haptism
- Nyu, Kaede --> Lucy
- Inner Moka --> Moka Akashiya
- Dark Riho --> Riho
- Hollow Ichigo --> Ichigo Kurosaki

These characters will be separated into two separate entries:
- Dorii & Guraa
- Hansel & Gretel
- Maru & Moro

In regard to the animals in Naruto, some of them are staying, others are going. Those that are staying have had at least a significant presence in the series.

So for the Naruto entries, the following should stay:
- Kyuubi
- Katsuyu
- Fukasaku
- Akamaru
- Pakkun
- Gamaken
- Gamabunta
- Gamakichi

The rest obviously have to go. In my opinion, Kakashi's ninken should be a combined entry since they have had a significant role in two of his fights.

In regard to Nyan Koi, I believe cats appearing in more than one episode/chapter should stay. Noir and Josephine should stay. While in the anime their roles may not be as presenting, their appearances in the manga should justify their position in the database.

In regard to cameo characters, they are allowed. I believe this also covers characters that are narrators.

In regard to the One Piece entries, some of them should go.

Going Merry, for instance, has been personified in both anime and manga, and has been characterised by the Strawhats to be a member of their crew. It also plays a significant role in the story. But it is an inanimate object, so I'm not sure about this particular entry.

I would consider the deletion of Hattori, Chou-chou, Gombe, and Carue. I wouldn't delete Pappug though.

As for Gantz, we know its role in the story is a significant one. So it should stay.

Ah you added more, lol.

For narrators, I think it depends. The narrator in Hayate, for instance, should stay. The One Piece one should go. But yeah... I'll let someone else deal with them.

Arthur, from Code Geass, should stay. There were one or two episodes that focused on him. Plus there was that pivotal moment when he saved Suzaku. Not sure again. It's debatable.

As for the Pokemon, I think they should be tagged with their owner's name. Mudkip, for instance, should be changed to 'Brock's mudkip,' albeit using their Japanese names. Something like what Bulbapedia uses to tag particular pokemon:
http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Ash%27s_Monferno
http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Ash%27s_Pikachu
http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Ash%27s_Corphish

They also have their own set of information, so I think they're more relevant in that way - as opposed to simply having a generic description of the pokemon species. Also, I'm not sure why you linked to Shizue since she's a character, lol.

The guidelines doesn't seems to be very clear regarding policy about adding various groups of peoples as one entry in people section. Personally I was always finding strange having there such companies as Type Moon and Key especially when Kinoko Nasu and Jun Maeda already having own entries.

Thanks for reminding me. These groups you mentioned are creators and not producers and as such belong in the people DB. As for the people themselves, it depends on how they're credited in the anime/manga adaptations. If the story credit goes to Key and not Maeda Jun, then Key should only be credited etc.
It's identical to the band rule, if the band is credited then the band gets credit on MAL and not the individual members.
Guideline clarification will happen soon.

About Pokemon: I think most of the should go but I'll leave it up to somebody who knows which ones are important and which ones are just cannon fodder or glorified weapons. The few episodes I've seen seem to indicate only Pikachu and that cat thing should stay.

The following are all multiple personalities of Kozue Aoba:

Akasaka, Saki
Kanazawa, Nanako
Konno, Natsume
Midorikawa, Chiyuri

I don't think this falls under the spoiler exclusion principle.

I went ahead and requested removal for all of those pokemon. As you said kuro, they all are pretty much glorified weapons who make cameo appearance every 100 episodes or so and aren't important mainstay characters in the series.

I disagree with Pandaman and Carue going. Carue was not a cameo at all. He also had an important role in the story.

Besides Rei's grandfather and Motoki's girlfriend all of the characters are one shots (or two shots in the case of the five other youma.) Since they are all so unimportant everything about the characters we find out in the episode we first meet them.

The character article all already spoil the transformations anyway and it's not like there is anything else to write about them.

Yoru should be merged with Sora Hashiba as he is his split personality. I watched the anime a couple years ago, but for what I remember this should not be spoilery...

Yes, we look down on such a picture. However, there is no other image available for that character. As such, that screenshot was accepted for the reason that having a picture is better than having none at all.

I've also noticed you submitted a picture for that character. I will default that and delete the other.

Both of these are actually pseudonyms of Nakumura Yoshihiro. I've changed one of the entries to this name and have merged them. Thanks.

Still going through the initial posts after the guidelines' release. All should be taken care of in the next day or two.

@Sobzob: Removed.

@Fahlaine: This spoiled me, lol. I didn't even realise they were drawn similar at all ^^; As they even have entirely different VAs, at this time I feel they should be left as separate characters. Hmm... mixed up these characters with other ones. However, my decision still stands to keep them separate. Angela is the character seen most in the anime and is an anime only character. Ash appears in both the manga and the anime. It doesn't make sense to not have an Angela entry for the anime, nor does it make sense to not have a Ash entry for the manga. Thus, I will leave them as separate.

@firefistace01: Done.
