Things you didn't notice before in Mario games

I didn't realise that the opening of Super Mario Advance is designed to highlight the resolution increase from GBC (160 x 144) to GBA (240 x 160). Basically the darker portion is the resolution absent from the GB(C) but is used in the GBA. (Thanks, Jeremy Parish!)

In Captain Toad, the titular character will clap when he is near Blue Toad (the bespectacled one), and will sleep when he's near Yellow Toad (the sleeping one).

Thank you for reading.
 

Kat Gravity Rush

That's her. She's the Gravity Rush!
In Mario Kart Tour, doing the same rocket start technique from previous games, then releasing the screen when GO! appears results to an even longer boost (3-ish seconds).

There are car parks on the detailed Touch Screen map of Koopa City in Mario Kart 7.

Drums are played when Mario (or any character) rides on Yoshi until I have seen that there are two variations of the soundtrack.

Drums are played when Mario (or any character) rides on Yoshi until I have seen that there are two variations of the soundtrack.
Technically speaking, in New Super Mario Bros. U, the drums part of the soundtracks from riding on Yoshi is simply overlayed on top of the original track, in a multi-channeled music file. It's similar to the first-place instruments in Mario Kart 7 and Mario Kart 8, or the extra effects in Music Park from Mario Kart 7 like the piano, xylophone, keys, etc.

Fiery bird with great firepower
The island tilts in Bombs Away in Mario Party 1 even if cannonnballs only hit the water. I always thought the island tilted due to having 4 characters on it at once
 

Princess of Tennis

the one that hearts a lot
This just came to my news feed

Tbh I did notice this apparition while playing through the game, as I take my time and sightsee everywhere, didn't think much of it though I find the internet hype take entertaining.
