When I had discovered the species of Biddybud, and assumed their role on the boards, I had originally mistaken the "biddy" in their name for "bitty" (small) like the itty bitty spider. It turns out Biddy means "annoying elderly woman". The name being a play on that they're based on ladybugs. Upon this realization I was surprised, but also humored and decided to continue using biddybuddy as my official username.

Koopa Shell noises in MK are meant to sound like the noises Koopas make
Wait...
Does that mean they're still in there?
YOU GOTTA TELL THE WORLD THAT KOOPA SHELLS ARE MADE OUT OF PEOPLE

That thing in New Soup where you can play as Luigi with a button combination? Someone just told me about it. But the last time I played through the game, I realised the easter egg is hidden in plain sight.

In Yoshi's Crafted World, Red Coins spin the opposite direction of normal coins. Haven't checked any other Yoshi games yet but I think it's unique to Crafted World.

That's not actually in a Mario game but it has something to do with Mario.

Most Fire Emblem games have two units you get very early in the game, both cavaliers, one in red armor, the other in green. They're partners, or know each other, and have some sort of friendly rivalry.

I just realized those two guys obviously reference Mario and Luigi. Maybe not character-wise but the rest is there.

Didn't notice how morally neutral Daisy is until I played Fortune Street.

In Speed Skating 500m in 2010 Wii, each character type requires a different number of perfectly timed swings in a row to perform a dash. Also Waluigi has a funny losing animation in this event where he falls over, but I can't find a video of it at the moment.

I'm certain this image isn't a render of a 3D model but a complerely 2D vector graphic with shadow effects and gradients

Mips is more a reference to Alice in Wonderland, or at least it kinda quotes it.

i knew that in Mario Kart SC , all characters have the JP version voices, but i didn't notice until now that Yoshi has his usual Kazumi Totaka ''Yoshi'' sounds instead of the Mario Party and Mario Kart 64 ''animal'' sfx.

I still wonder what the hell the foley guy used for those yoshi noises.

Aren't the percussion-like noises just altered orchestra hit noises?
