There's a thread for geography oddities on a geography site I got to, so I made a thread here for video games. I'll start off with a few Mario related examples.

  • Buzzy Beetles are the only SMB1 enemy to never appear in a 3D Mario game, and Buzzy Beetles and Lakitus are the only two SMB1 enemies not in Super Mario 3D Land even though it has Spinies.
  • Dry Bones is playable in Mario Kart DS but not Koopa Troopa. Koopa Troopa wasn't playable in a handheld Mario Kart until Mario Kart 7.
  • The only numbered SMB3 level the Angry Sun appeared in was 8-2. The Sun level in world 2 had it's own icon.

I keep these Nintendo Life threads updated: Missing 3DS VC and Wii U VC between regions, Full of list first party Game Boy, Game Boy Color, and Game Gear games missing from the 3DS VC, and Full of list first party Game Boy Advance, Nintendo DS, and Wii games missing from the Wii U VC.

@SRArter: I didnt know that about the Buzzy Beetle I could have sworn I saw them in SM3DL, but I could be wrong. Interesting stuff indeed. You might want to post those odd facts in this thread http://www.nintendolife.com/forums/retro/things_you_didnt_kno... I am sure some of the people there would enjoy it.
