In Mario Kart 8/Deluxe, the Water Park track contains Wario and Waluigi branding, meaning the park is likely owned by them. This suggests that the name could be a subtle pun; "Water Park" starts with "Wa", a syllable often used to refer to Wario and Waluigi. https://t.co/7C7DpcR7YE
The Chinese beverage company Wahaha Group uses an unlicensed edited version of Super Mario World artwork for their "Wahaha Vitamin A&D and Calcium Soft Drink" featuring their mascot. The mascot and original Super Mario World artwork are on the right for comparison. https://t.co/VOaHpwakI8
In Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door, if Ms. Mowz joins the party early through exploits, the game is playable normally. However, if Ms. Mowz eats the poisoned cake in Chapter 3, instead of playing a cutscene of getting poisoned, she will simply disappear completely (right). https://t.co/IsF89jy9kH
In Super Mario Maker 2, if a Giant Mechakoopa is placed into a pipe, it will assume a unique front-facing sprite for a few frames while emerging from the pipe. Here are the front-facing Mechakoopas in all four game styles where they are available. https://t.co/eZV2EyKe71
Stage Debut was a GameCube game shown at E3 2003 and then cancelled. It revolved around creating a virtual version of the player with a camera peripheral, which could then interact with Nintendo characters. The game was planned to include Mario, Luigi, Peach, Bowser and Wario. https://t.co/SBsOcJ4p2y
As part of a promotional event for Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, Nintendo of America's official Twitter account was temporarily taken over by Cranky Kong. During this, Cranky Kong posted four image macros attempting to make jokes relating to Internet culture. https://t.co/t86VYmhkHG
Paper Mario contains mipmaps of some textures, or low-resolution versions meant to speed up rendering of faraway objects. However, these are never used; the high-resolution versions are displayed at all times, likely due to the simplistic graphics making optimization unnecessary. https://t.co/o0p0qnkNIv
In Super Mario Odyssey, the Crazy Cap guide brochures for most kingdoms include those locations' average temperatures. Here are all the temperatures laid out in a chart. https://t.co/omTUP5sHrU
In a 2012 interview with Shigeru Miyamoto, he suggested that Dr. Mario may "not necessarily" be a legitimate doctor. While no official statement has been given, this raises the possibility that some or all of the many doctors featured in Dr. Mario World are illegitimate as well. https://t.co/inG7fPLjsP
In the first turn of the opening Bowser battle in Super Mario RPG, Peach is actually present as an enemy with a Speed stat of 255. If Mario is hacked to have matching speed, he can target (left) and attack her (middle). Peach has 10 HP and awards a coin upon defeat (right). https://t.co/UlZnLJZpPX
In pre-release footage of Donkey Kong 64, the Mad Jack boss is based on a human clown (left). A smaller, regular enemy version of that design is still found, unused, in the finished game's data (middle). The final Kremling-based design in on the right for comparison. https://t.co/7yytVEx1lx
In a 10-Man Smash as Yoshi in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS, a Giant Yoshi is fought. If the Egg Lay move is used on him, he will emerge from the egg slightly larger. This can be repeated until he is so large he touches the upper KO boundary, self-destructing immediately. https://t.co/lkkKJ9uMcM
In Super Mario Galaxy 2, when Mario talks to NPCs while riding Yoshi, Yoshi will look at the NPC (left). However, if B is pressed at any point during this, Yoshi will open his mouth and continue looking at the NPC with his mouth open until the conversation ends (right). https://t.co/BRcEGIRs1j
The flight action game Ace Combat: Assault Horizon Legacy+ for the New Nintendo 3DS contains unlockable aircraft based on Mario, Luigi, Peach and Bowser, as well as additional designs for them only unlockable with their respective amiibo (marked with "amiibo" in the image). https://t.co/OMyYHzQWGM
The RC car operator is the only human Mario can capture in Super Mario Odyssey. Normally, he is only seen from behind during this. However, by precisely positioning Mario beforehand, there are a few frames where is possible to get a closer look at the man's face while captured. https://t.co/Dz6enn1o6U
In Super Mario Maker 2, Spikes do not throw Spike Balls if the enemy part limit is reached. P-Switches are part of that limit; thus, by maxing out the limit, it is possible to have a Spike not attack until a P-Switch is pressed, giving the impression of it "guarding" the switch. https://t.co/9LfZ3rluLK
The Stache stat in the Mario & Luigi series represents the impressiveness of Mario and Luigi's mustaches, though the games' graphics do not reflect any change in their appearance as it increases. A Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga manga shows Mario's mustache at different stats. https://t.co/Juvdq53NHb
Concept art for the Skeleton Suit from the Art of Super Mario Odyssey book, detailing Mario's individual bones and offering various options for the appearance of his eyes. In the finished game, Mario has no eyes and his nose and mustache were added to the design (right). https://t.co/MuZUBaFQD1
In a 2009 interview with Henk Rogers, founder of the Tetris Company, and Alexey Pajitnov, creator of Tetris, Rogers expresses regret over ever giving Nintendo permission to release Tetris Attack under that name; however, both of them agree it was a good game. https://t.co/usrNGxIZPg
In Paper Mario, Albino Dinos are NPCs that are encountered only in one room in the Crystal Palace as part of a puzzle (top left). However, the game's data contains a fully functional unused enemy encounter with them. The Tattle and attack animation are provided below. https://t.co/z7xVsTw97O
