Marty Chonks IS a serial killer!
Okay, it was mentioned that Chonks is a serial killer in his article for ages and then it was edited out with no reason whatsoever. No justification. But it was a relevant part of his character and now I will explain a bit about why he is classed as a 'serial killer' so that someone doesn't edit it out again.
A serial killer is typically defined as an individual who has murdered three or more people over a period of more than a month, with down time (a "cooling off period") between the murders, and whose motivation for killing is largely based on psychological gratification. Other sources define the term as "a series of two or more murders, committed as separate events, usually, but not always, by one offender acting alone" or, including the vital characteristics, a minimum of at least two murders.
And who does Chonks kill?
- Two thieves. - His lawyer. - His wife.
Four victims. FOUR. So yes, he is a serial killer and it is part of his character. So it should be noted in the article. Don't just edit it out.
- I'm fully aware that Chonks is a serial killer and how serial killers are defined. That, however, should not be mentioned in the articles opening paragraph, which is just for basic information about the character at the beginning of each game. That is the only reason it was edited it out. It has now been added in the articles main text. A-Dust 17:16, 13 March 2011 (UTC)
