Okay... one has a period, and the other has an exclamation point... Uh...... I don't know what to say about this... Is one in the original, and the other in the collection? Was is it an issue with the pixels shifting? What is even real? But seriously, what should we do with these?Read more >
Merry Christmas everyone! It's been a really good year for The Drawn to Life Wiki, and I hope everyone had a really amazing year! The wiki looks very beautiful with all of the snow falling down. In fact it kinda feels relaxing. (Keep up the good work Manere!) May everyone have aRead more >

TO ALL MODERATORS:
So, I've been on this forum for about a month now, and I want to shoot for a chat or content mod position. Are those spots open? If so, please inform me if I am eligible for either.Read more >
So recently I've been on a pretty big nostalgia trip, and along with digging up old screenshots of games that I played years ago, I stumbled across the Drawn to Life series again, and realized how much of an impact they had on my creative thought.
As a result, when I found this Wiki and read through it a bit, I decided "You know what, I might as well try my hand at this!" I've never done much Wiki work before, but I'm pretty competent at the games, as well as having a fairly good memory of what happened in the story.
So far I've worked on expanding some Article Stubs I've seen, namely the weapons from the first game, and I have a few questions for those willing to answer them, mostly referring to the as of yet unfinished Manual o…Read more >

So, I'm playing Drawn to Life 2 again, and I just reached the first level of lavasteam, where you get the blob transformation. I personally favor the spider transformation, but I wondered, what would people like to see added as a transformation? A wolf? A bird? Post your answer in a comment!Read more >

I'm on a mission to continue our beloved game's story. The story never has to end, but it does end when no one tells it. So we must continue the story in some manor, but also make the story from the games availbe in more than one format to make it last longer(won't be forgotten). Fan stories/games are as canon and if not meaningful as the stories that started it all, but the stories must connect and move forward, rather than repeating itself.
- What happened to the Raposa after Mike left?
- What's the difference between the creator and player?
Character Location(Last seen)
Player ...(The player's last scripted action)
"Creator" ...(The creator's last actions and words)

Hi guys! I've been wondering what we are going to do with quotes category wise. So far, the only category we have for quotes is . The only page I imagine we're keeping on there is the Generic Raposa Characters/Quotes page. Aside from that, there are only 3 images there. I don't think this category should be removed, but I do think that we should add more images to the category. On top of this, I have an idea.
I'm thinking about making a 'Quote' category with 'Character Quotes' and 'Creation Quotes' as subcategories. What do you guys think?Read more >
Hi everyone! I can't believe it's Halloween already! Soon Christmas music will be playing... But before that happens, let's celebrate the time of year for SHADOW! How are you guys enjoying Halloween so far?

The wiki looks kinda freaky doesn't it? The shadow must've taken over... Or maybe it's haunted? Either way, I wouldn't wander around the wiki at night... *shivers*
Hey guys! There are so many different sprites from the drawn to Life games! Do you know what this means? This means that many of the sprites on the wiki look... kinda silly. So what are the silliest and craziest sprites you have seen on the wiki? And what makes them so funny to look at? Tell me in the comments! :)Read more >
Hello everyone! Blogs are back! I've brought them back a while ago to look back at them. That was quite a while before I knew the forums were being replaced, but if you REALLY don't like the old forums you can use blogs instead! It might not be any sort of forum, but hey! The more ways to communicate, the better! I can't wait to see all of your future blogs!Read more >
Okkkkkayy. So I think we need to decide what to do with character statuses. This blog post is continued from my previous blog titled "character statuses". So you should read that one first.
And following that I think we should decide once and for all whether or not we should have the character statuses in the raposa pages at all.
I think this is what we should do:
Go onto all the character pages and get rid of the status sections. Then just leave it as that.
However im sure many other users probably want them to stay. So I think we should take a vote. Whichever side wins the vote:
Side one: keep the statuses
Side two: get rid of them
Is the action that is taken.
However if anyone disagrees with my idea of a vote I'm willing to reconsider.
Please …Read more >
I'd like to bring back the discussion of the character statuses on the wiki. Where it says their status "alive deceased or unknown" most of the Raposa are on "alive".
Now I understand everyone's reasons. I get that its quite a big part of the character pages and its a huge spoiler, but regardless the fact still remains that the Raposa are dead.
By putting them on alive we are more or less lying to the readers.
The fact of the matter is on the wiki we should have true information, not false information.
And in the games the Raposa are dead at this current point in time.
Ok to keep it short the point is the Raposa are dead and even if it is a spoiler if we put their statuses as "alive" it is false information on the wiki. And readers will begin …Read more >
Does anyone know the specific date 505 Games bought the rights for Drawn to life off THQ? I've looked on google and can't really find it, but I'm sure it has to be somewhere, does anyone here know?Read more >
Post opinions in comments.
505 Games bought the rights to all the drawn to life games, that includes the wii version. Most of us probably already know that the original has been ported to iOS by 505 Games and WayforwardTechnologies. However, will the ds sequel be ported as well? And what about the wii version? After all that one was bought by 505 Games as well right?
The main problem with the wii version is that you use the wii remote to draw. So your creations come out all scribbly and rather messy. If the game was ported to iOS that problem would be solved, therefore the game may be a lot better if 505 Games did port it to iOS devices.
On the other hand the story was rather bad.... the twist with Circi was alright I guess but still.Read more >
Just out of curiousity,
In your opinion, who is the most memorable character in the Drawn to Life series?
According to Manere , BenDingo, Crystal Lugia, and Touli
- Crazy Barks
According to BenDingo,and Crystal Lugia
According to Crystal Lugia
And Who is the least memorable?
According to BenDingo

According to Manere, and Crystal Lugia

Please state your reasoning.

or not...And i…

Last November a poll was held concerning new admins being elected to help out with the maintenance work around here. After a week, and when everyone has voted, the poll was shut down and the results were counted. It's been a few months since then, and BreGee and I have have posted a request to adopt the Wiki based on the results of the initial poll.
The main purpose of this blog post is to update everyone on this change and to ensure that us adopting the Wiki sits well with the majority of the editors here. We'd like to hear everyone's input on this, so please leave a comment with your feedback.Read more >

I've just been scanning over the wiki and looking at quotes within articles, and the quote pages themselves.
Now, I'm sure you know this, but we shouldn't try to include every single thing that a Raposa says!! That would end in disaster! It would be crowded, we'd here half of conversations, and it would take forever! Instead, we just need quotes that really show the personality of a Raposa, things like, thoughts on the festival, thoughts on Bosses, thoughts on Zsasha and Wilfre! Not things like "Okay" or "Hi!".
The Mayor says things like "Let me place it back in the book of life" and "Hrmmm there we go, just like before!" Over and over again, so things like that can be included.
I don't mean to sound rude in any way at all and …

There was a third game all along just nobody noticed it? Each and every member of the dtl fandom was completly unaware of the fact there was a third game but most gamers outside the fandom knew about it? That is why there is no record in the fandom of a third game. It had TV, radio, magazine AND PUBLIC adverts just the Drawn To Life Fans never noticed them where as the people outside the fandom all realized it and assumed we all knew?Read more >
Hello everyone! So first I'll introduce myself. I've been lurking around this wiki for like, forever! I then, up till now decided to make an account and take about this underrated series. If I describe my childhood in one sentence, it'd be Drawn to Life. Nostalgic and everything. I have so many thoughts and questions about this game. I suppose I shall start.
Spoiler: DO NOT READ IF YOU HAVEN'T COMPLETED OR PLAYED THE GAME AS IT TALKS ABOUT THE ENDING AND STORYLINE.
1. Why is this so underrated? So I started replaying this the other day and wanted to go for a Google search. I was so surprised in seeing that the DTL fandom is so small and the amount of fan art is disappointing. But it's completely fine, as it is an older series and not many pe…

Okay to be honest, for most of these guys, I'm unsure what to call them...
We all know this is a RapoGirl. Although while in one message it's one word, another has them two seperate words.
In the wiki, we call this little guy a 'RapoBoy' However,At one point this little guy is called A'Young Rapo'
This is also what we call the adult rapo. However we shouldn't call him this because the game calls RapoBoy this.Nobody likes to be confused.
The Old Rapo, doesn't seem to have anything wrong with his name...yet.
As for the other 2 generic female rapos, I honestly think calling them the same thing as their male counterparts and adding '(Female)' to it is... (I don't know how to describe it but it just feels wrong to me...) It's just a shame that they …

Should there be a new infobox made? One specialy made for characters with Official Art... Or have images that aren't sprites! Think about it! Not only is it all there, but there wouldn't be any need for galerys!

Hello fellow Wiki members, I have been examining various articles on this wiki, and I have noticed that there is a variety of ways of getting there story across. In my opinion it is best to have a story heading, and two sub headings for DTL and TNC under the heading. Examine this
Brief description/back story. In DTL: He was saved from a Whaleecopter and resides near the lighthouse. In TNC: He is saved from the Galactic Jungle and becomes best friends with Kaine. Fate: Is swallowed by a shadow walker. Fades away once Mike wakes up and remains in the Raposa world*.
Please note this example is from a character not in the drawn to life series.
*This is another point I wanted to raise, in my view the Raposa did not die once Mike woke up, the Rapo…

I don't rememer how I thought of this, but today I remembered a story I learned in elementry school. It was Indian folklore that explained why there were earthquakes. I thought it might've inspired Turtle Rock...

What do you guys think?Read more >
So, I own a small little DTL forum that's been sitting around in the WIP stage for several years, mostly because there aren't a lot of DTL fans active anymore. But now that there's been a sudden influx of activity here, maybe it's worth finishing and opening to the public, if people are interested.
And you know I complain about fanon / fan theories being posted on the Wiki, well a forum like that would be ideal for those kind of discussions and people would no longer have to post them here for any reason.
I would also be looking for moderators, not just users, if enough people are interested. That means people not only to help me moderate the forum itself but also to make decisions on ways to improve it.
This isn't meant to be a shameless adv…Read more >
I've noticed that the current active users seem to be focusing on adding images and media to articles (this isn't a criticism - you're doing a good job!)
However, most if not all of the character pages are currently suffering from a lack of information and in some cases too much bias. Those pages need to be expanded and possibly rewritten completely to fit the ideal standard of quality. In their current state, character pages are opinionated and seem to have too much fanon (that means fan interpretation of the characters) for a Wiki entry. This Wikia is supposed to be informative, not speculative, and the pages need to reflect that.
I think I'm going to take up this task myself, and solely focus on improving those pages. Of course, anyone is…Read more >
For those of you who aren't familiar with the concept, "A leitmotif or leitmotiv // is a "short, constantly recurring musical phrase" associated with a particular person, place, or idea." -Wikipedia
So basically, there are short musical stanza in music that recurs throughout multiple songs. A lot of these are present in Drawn to Life, and I will be trying to categorize songs by ones they use. If anyone would like to help me in my 'quest' to do so, it would be greatly appreciated. That's it for now.

Have any of you guys wondered this as well? I've been trying to figure it out but it's kind of hard when the only proper/official things I've got to go by are his sprites... what do you think he actually looks like when he isn't shadow? I mainly mean, what do his clothes look like.
I've seen various pictures (fanart of course) and he's always wearing either a blue shirt or jacket (always longsleeved), sometimes with a white collar and sometimes also having yellow parts on them. Beyond that most of the pictures have him with either a black shirt (under a blue jacket) or black tie on (some have both). Personally I thought he had a tie on at first but when I look at the sprites I'm not as sure...
I'm trying to work it out and thought that s…Read more >
This isn't particularly important, but I was going to draw a DTL Christmas picture for everyone, and along with certain game characters I was going to put in Rapo-versions of us in it too, but I don't know what you'd want yourself to look like. (Also, when I say everyone, I mainly mean Manere, BreGee, and BenDingo, because they're the people on here the most [at least when I'm on as well]. And the picture would be running out of room as well if too many more people were in it.)
So, could you guys post either a picture or a description of what you'd like yourselves to look like below? Thanks : )
BTW if you want to roughly know who's in the picture and what's kind of happening as well, just ask, I don't mind telling you.Read more >
I noticed that we've only got the front walking sprites for everything we've got sprites for, but there's also side and behind walking sprites that we could make and upload. Is there a reason for only having the front walking sprite, or can I go ahead and make the other side and behind walking sprites too?
Just wondering : )Read more >
I'm often editing in the afternoon, and I never see any of you guys... because you're probably in bed.
I don't know what time zones everyone's in, but when I was on a live chat with Manere the other day, he said it was night where he was but where I was it was actually in the morning. I've figured out for myself that I can get on when you guys are still on but only if I'm early enough. I'd also have to stay up late to still be on when you log in.
I thought that it would be good if in the comments we could share what time zone we are in, and also what the current time is (what's the time when you're posting it). Just so that we have a better idea of when we're actually going to be on the Wiki at the same time as each other.

I'm not sure how to delete something if I accidentally make it... what should I do? How do I get rid of it?Read more >
I posted about this before, I know, but since some people are new I'll post it again.
The reason why the seperate, type-specific Baki pages were in deletion was because there's not much of a page you can make for a single kind. It would be a lot more efficient and logical to condense all the different kinds of Baki into one page - I see no reason why they should all have their own articles.Read more >
Please read the entire post before replying. Well, it's been a week and all of the active members have voted. The poll is now closed. The results will be tallied and sent to MagicalChez. Thanks for your participation! Currently, the only active admin we have is MagicalChez. With the high amount of maintenance this Wiki needs, whether it's expanding Stub articles, adding missing images, reverting vandalism, removing pages, or updating pages to fix styling issues and grammar mistakes, it's too much to expect one person to be able to take care of it all by themselves. This is especially true considering they have a life outside of this Wiki. As they have stated in another thread it's probably best to elect two more admins to help out when the … Read more >
