Fun fact:
In The original Paper Mario (N64), during the cutscene where Peach's Castle gets pulled from the ground and up to the heavens, you can actually barely see Goombario running away from the castle.
Here's a picture btw:

The term "Megavitamin" is hardly used in the Dr. Mario games. In every manual or tutorial for every Dr. Mario game that I can find, it's either "vitamins", "capsules", or "vitamin capsules". The modern games even used "capsule". The only time Megavitamin is ever used in the series is in Dr. Mario 64, which only appears in Story Mode. We likely took this for granted, because (1) Super Smash Bros. series widely used the term to refer to the capsules, and (2) the Mario Wiki used this term to refer to the capsules at the official page. Super Smash Bros. is even the more popular series, so it's probably why people assumed they are called Megavitamins.

Thank you for reading.

That article absolutely should be moved to capsule, that's the term Dr. Mario World uses and that's the most recent entry.

As far as Mario games go, Dr. Luigi is the only game that celebrates Year of Luigi, and somebody on Discord joked that a 100 years later, historians would only know it existed from this game. I believe that this is universal across all localisations. Here are a few segments where it is acknowledged:

(The first image is one of the splash screens, after the game loaded)

Also, in Operation L (the mode with L-capsules), clearing a line will cause Luigi's cap (as depicted in Year of Luigi) to pop up. The higher the chain, the larger the hats are:

I love how the easy CPUs act completely braindead in this minigame when they're the ones shooting the cannon lol.

Wario had a bad experience at a Target store and now he seeks to search and destroy all targets.

I mean SURGE AND DESTROY.

There is a series of videos where Mario has to save Luigi from falling in the lava, by answering the quiz correctly. Here's one:

There are two other possibilities, where Mario got the wrong answer once...

And another where he got the wrong answer twice, resulting in Luigi getting scorched.

The music of the Cups in Mario Kart Arcade GP 2 that also appeared in the first game actually differ in both games. As an example, the beat in Mario Cup changes from a kick to a faster more breakbeat-like sound, and a section is added at 1:26 before looping.

Koopa The Quick might be based on either we wouldn't expect a turtle to be "quick" or the classic The Tortoise and The Hare story, especially considering they were considering his role to be taken by a rabbit in development
