Nui Stone as Toa Tool

Someone proposed adding the Nui Stone under Tuyet's tools list, which I find to be a sound and sensible idea. After all, the Nui Stone is one of the most important things about her, and you can hardly say that she doesn't use it as a tool. Now, Dorek deleted it from the page because (and I quote) "Eh, then we'd have to do that for a lot of things". I don't have anything against you, Dorek, but I disagree with you on that count. No one is suggesting that we add "satchel" to Gresh's tools list, or "Karzahni root (briefly)" to Nokama's. I would only suggest that we add the Nui Stone as Tuyet's tool -- since Tuyet simply isn't Tuyet without it. (We could also possibly add Golden Armor to Tahu's tools, though I'm hesitant on that one, since it was a one-use sort of thing.) So whaddaya say, BS01? Should we add it or not? --Angel Bob (talk) 01:51, 16 March 2014 (CET)

I think the "Tools" section on the Toa Template is about Toa Tools, items used to channel Elemental Powers and also as combat items. The Nui Stone doesn't really fall under either of those categories. It is more in the same category as the Nuva Symbols, an external power battery. As to the Golden Armor...meh. It certainly is a combat item and contains particular powers (now), but it isn't a Toa Tool. As to mentioning that she wields the stone, it is mentioned in her Abilities and Traits section. It might be wiser to change the template itself to clarify what kind of tool is being listed in that particular template slot...assuming that can be done without making the template code super complicated somehow XD ζω·τωμαναExternal Image
It really does have to do with the way we define "tool", and I think that it really is a fine line that can be blurred pretty easily; look at all of the crazy things Takua has used in his career, each arguably "important". I understand that the Nui Stone is a big part of her story, but it's not exclusive to her nor is it defined to be "hers" in any way; she just currently happens to be the one holding on to it. If Teridax had succeeded in his effort to recreate the Nui Stone (assuming it hadn't been a fake), he would be the owner right now, or whoever. It's not even a part of her armor anymore.
On the Golden Armor note, I would be more inclined to add that to Tahu's template; it's a weird middle point between Tools and Objects. -- I AM THE DOREK do not truffle with me 01:04, 17 March 2014 (CET)
