  • 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.

Even right after reading The Shining, I didn't catch the reference to it in Super Mario Sunshine. Not only is there a haunted hotel, but it gets a visit from a ghostly "obscene manta", as mentioned very briefly in one of the later chapters of Stephen King's classic novel.

SHINE!

I never realized that in the Minus World, unlike 2-2/7-2, the midpoint starts Mario inside a pit.
What a ROMhack thing to do! (then again, it is a glitch level after all)

Gary's raticate and that gary was a orphan. I knew that the girl in his house was his sister but it never occurred to me he was a orphan. I read the manga to that says his parents died in a car crash but i forgot that until i saw the thing that he was a orphan. I also did not know everything above until i saw it on didyounowgaming.

on the box and promotional art for Super Mario Galaxy, shiny sparks on certain letters spell out sUpeR MaRio GalAxY, or 'U R MR. GAY'.

Bizarre.... but which letters had sparks on them got changed for SMG 2, heh heh

I always looked at that like a coincidence. Nintendo wouldn't do that. If they did it on purpose however...They are the ultimate troll.

I never knew that.

I would write some things I didn't know about certain games for years, but my mind's gone blank at the moment.

It took me years to figure out that in Melee you could play with teams hahaha. I stumbled upon it by accident.

A friend of mine showed me a little secret about the original Pokemon Red, in the intro sequence where a Gengar and a Nidorino fight.

Let it run once and notice the Nidorino's mouth is not visible in the last frame of the sequence.
Now, reset and pay attention at the intro:
If you press A on the exact moment the Gengar hits the Nidorino, the Gengar will be pushed back a little bit more, evidenced by the fact Nidorino's mouth is now visible in the last frame of the sequence. Were you to press A in any other moment of the sequence, it will cut the scene into the Title Screen.

In all my years, I certainly never knew it. Easter egg or not, I can't find info about it anywhere. Can anyone check it, I was quite startled by it, while my friend said he found it playing short after the game came out.

EDIT: We have experimented with it and apparently while Gengar dashes to actually hit the Nidorino, if you press A you can stop it's dash, making it look like Nidorino is jumping further. I can post pics but I don't know the guidelines.

Look at Super Mario Galaxy's 2 box. Now let's take the letters out this time: U R M I A Y. Now let's turn this sequence around: Y A I M R U. Now let's use our imagination to spell out a phrase: YA I M, R U (Ya, I am, are you?)? :3

I think developers get bored some time and just want to do something fun to see if anyone would notice

There is Cheese in Luigi's Mansion?!

I didn't know that until 3 years ago and I refused to believe it until I replayed the game last year.
