Unnecessary trivia

Since the episode itself already explains that Climbing Silver is a move in shogi, I believe the trivia explaining it once again is redundant and unnecessary, and as such should be removed. It would be like having a trivia bit explaining what the Sharingan is on the episode page for the episode that first explains what the Sharingan is. Can we agree that this is unneeded? To put it into persepctive, if this is considered relevant and important trivia, then logic would follow that we should also add trivia explaining what things are to the page for the first episode that anything appears and gets explained in. First episode that says the word "kunai" and shows a kunai knife? Explain what a kunai is in the trivia for that episode. First episode that uses the word "ramen" and shows them eating ramen? Explain what ramen is in the trivia for that episode. I hope others can see how stupid this is and why we should eliminate this piece of trivia from this page.

Couple of things:
  • The trivia point is there because it explains the title, not to repeat the in-episode explanation.
  • If information were removed on the grounds that the same information can be gleaned from watching the episode, the summary itself would be removed, would it not?
  • We do not explain Sharingan or kunai in the episodes they first appear in, but we do link to articles dedicated to those topics in case readers want them explained. Since we don't have an article for shogi moves, we've nothing to link to and, therefore, must provide the explanations within the episode articles if they are to be provided anywhere.

Fair enough, that makes sense. Thank you for your courteous, thorough explanation. EBsessed (talk) 15:56, April 21, 2015 (UTC)
