Please see here. You seem to be sure the trivia note is relevant, while per wiki policy it's only considered relevant if we can demonstrate that it's intentional. Please justify your reversion on the talk page, thanks!
Oh, well if that's how it is nevermind then. I don't agree with that but I'm too lazy to oppose wiki policy.
But this wiki policy confuses me a little. Should trivia notes like "scarecrows being based upon oogie boogie" or "Faust and mephisto's true form resembling earwigs" be removed? I'm not saying I don't agree with those (Scarecrows actually look like oogie boogie :3) but I want to know what the demonstration of that being intentional is, and if so, how to research later if the cheshire cat trivia note is relevant or not.
Probably, yes. If you look at sites like tvtropes, you can tell that if we listed everything that can be said to be similar to a detail of DMC, we'd spend more space listing similarities than actually covering the series. If it's not on purpose, then the similarities aren't really informative -- for example, saying "tomatoes are red, like how firetrucks are red" is meaningless, since clearly tomatoes being red has nothing to do with firetrucks being red. Lot's of things are red, and listing them all is very meaningless.
If we can demonstrate that the similarity is intentional, then listing it is actually informing the reader of something relevant. We can do this a few ways -- either the similarity is so exact (like the Monster Hunter bit) that it's ludicrous to assume it's a coincidence, the similarities are between works by the same author so we can reasonably assume they are reusing their earlier work, or we can actually point to a note in the concept art or something from a twitter post or really anything where the creator points out the link.
In short, "if it's not relevant, then it's not relevant".
For the Scarecrows, yeah, it should probably be removed unless the trivia note cites any such thing as mentioned above. For Mephisto and Faust, those aren't so much references as simply describing what the character is -- there are few ways to describe their true form without referencing insects, if any. And honestly, that could very much be your out -- instead of putting in a trivia note which alleges a link that may not exist, you could simply add to the main article, in an appropriate location, that when Bael/Dagon fade out they do so with a wikipedia:Cheshire grin, which fades away after their body does.
Hmm okay that sounds convincing enough. I'll try to rewrite that bit about bael and dragon in the appropiate section of the article tomorrow (if I find that appropiate section that is; if not, the bit can be completely erased for all I care).
And well I believe I should also try to see if the trivia about scarecrows has some basis, and if it does not, I guess it should be put in their description somewhere, according of what you said about relevancy. Same for mephisto/faust, and others I didn't mention.
