Merge

There is plenty of room in the Kill Bill article. This does not need to be addressed in a separate article. --Blanchardb-MeMyEarsMyMouth-timed 04:14, 2 January 2008 (UTC)

Considering how many characters there are, and how long the main article already is, and how much other editors will probably add to this list, I'd say it should be a separate entity. I think it's a good idea to have this as it is, especially as an alternative to a dozen articles on characters not nearly notable enough for their own pages, but I certainly wouldn't be strongly opposed to a merge. -- Mike (Kicking222) 04:48, 2 January 2008 (UTC)
The main article is currently 34k long. Wikipedia guidelines state that you have to bring it up to 40k before you consider splitting it. See WP:LENGTH. --Blanchardb-MeMyEarsMyMouth-timed 11:38, 2 January 2008 (UTC)
Currently the two articles concerned total about 39k in size, but this includes images, refs etc. which "don't count" as part of the description for "readable prose" - the main underlying criterion for questioning whether or not an article is too large. 40k is still Wiki's arbitrary guideline cut-off point, above which size authors may consider splitting an article. I support merging the articles as there is still leeway in terms of adding more info for those who feel the article warrants it. Even if the article eventually reaches (say) 42k it will still be okay in terms of size because we will have a definitive "Kill Bill" article rather than a more fractured series of articles.AirdishStraus (talk) 13:31, 2 January 2008 (UTC)
Eh, then go for it. Like I said, I'm not that opposed to it- I'm just happy to not have individual articles for Johnny Mo and Rufus and all of these other characters that have three lines and appear on-screen for forty-five seconds. -- Mike (Kicking222) 16:53, 2 January 2008 (UTC)
It should be MERGED. In fact, much of it should be deleted. As it stands, this a thoroughly in-universe article, lacking any citations, references or critical commentary, & containing the kind of character bios that belong on a fan site rather than Wikipedia. It repeats much of the information that is already in the plot synopsis, which is the proper place for anything about these characters which can be considered encyclopedically notable.

Closed, lack of interest/process, both pages have changed much since, and topic has been dead, initiated in 2008 in Jaunary and last discussed in July, but only on this page. Why was there no tag for {{Mergefrom}} entered on the reciprocal page? WurmWoodeT 17:03, 23 August 2009 (UTC)

Also, there are at least two male characters missing from this list:

  • the male nurse in the hospital/nursing home (owner of the "Pussy Wagon") where Bride wakes up after a mosquito bites her
  • and the john who presumably has paid to have sex with the comatoze Bride only to find that she is not comatoze anymore.
  • signed: 86.92.173.184 (talk) 19:34, 8 May 2010 (UTC) Aw shit, I used to have an vicky account. You can reach me at uncyclopedia, my nick is [diMario]. Uhhm, just my two cents, not trying to start a war or something.

I think there should be a section for Buck

Because "He Likes To F**k." :D But seriously, He is a character in the movie, and with a movie that dosen't have many characters, I believe he is valid. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 216.209.119.105 (talk) 00:35, 29 November 2010 (UTC)

Level of Detail

Being somewhat of a Wiki newb, please forgive me if I'm out of line or out of place, but it seems that the majority of the descriptions under each character is excessively detailed. It isn't really necessary to present such a detailed play-by-play of the characters' interactions with The Bride, is it? Crimson667 (talk) 02:51, 22 January 2011 (UTC)

Hi I'm basically a wiki newbie too, and totally agree since many articles are so overly detailed... however, I was reading O-Ren Ishii's section and found the complete opposite was true... important info was left out (as in who the Bride defeated in the club). I managed to insert important scenes and a quote without bulking the article up too much. Xzoevx (talk) 07:29, 14 July 2011 (UTC)

PoV

Most of characters are described from some viewers personal point of view. Many events can be interpreted in different ways, but only one way is presented here as a fact. Also some stuff is clearly wrong (i.e. O-Ren apologized only for ridiculing Bride earlier ("silly Caucasian girl likes to play with samurai swords", not for what she had done to her in the past). I'd say original research and/or POV banners are appropriate here. --Windom (talk) 17:32, 13 April 2011 (UTC)

I agree. Elle Driver being presumed dead is inaccurate (except from the in-film POV). It has been suggested several times in the real world that she is not - Estoy Aquí (talk) 01:18, 26 May 2011 (UTC)

The interpretation over O-Ren's apology to The Bride was clearly wrong... I removed that misinformation and improved it with the correct quote and response. Also scene descriptions were not altogether very good and were missing key interacting characters. However, as discussed above... do the chapter breakdowns have no place in character descriptions? Should the bulk of the story be told in the plot synopsis? I just felt that if the information was there it should at least be written well and correctly. Xzoevx (talk) 07:47, 14 July 2011 (UTC)

Karen Kim

"Karen Kim" is the false name that Lisa Wong gives to The Bride at the door of her hotel room before her attack. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 99.180.3.236 (talk) 03:18, 22 August 2011 (UTC)

XIIV

did tarentino actually say that? there are 2 problems, one major.if the original hattori hanzo was 18th century, the current version would not be, well , whatever that number is. my great-great-great grandfather was born in 1790.if we had all been of the same name, i would only be the sixth. the bigger problem is that that is not a proper roman numeral. XVII would be alright, and would be 17. XIV would be alright, and would be 14. XIIV doesn't exist. or is this just a typo?Toyokuni3 (talk) 20:46, 12 August 2012 (UTC)

Common name for characters

I've reformatted the main characters sections by their common name as listed in the closing credits of the Kill Bill Vol. 1. The a.k.a.'s are listed in the Kill Bill Vol. 2 credits, but are anchored for the purposes of this character list. AngusWOOF (barksniff) 15:52, 29 June 2017 (UTC)
