Super Circuit is a kart racing video game in which the player races in a kart against other teams in different courses. The game screen indicates the current standings in a race, the current speed of the player's kart and incoming weapons. Like in the previous installments, players can pick up item boxes to receive a randomly selected item and use it to impede the opposition and gain the advantage. Some items, such as shells and bananas, allow the player to hit others to slow them down, while other items, such as the star power-up, render them temporarily invincible to attacks. This is the second Mario Kart game to include coins, which increases the top speed of the karts.
In Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon(pictured), the first letters of each mansion, possessor, and bonus mission, in the order of the story, make out the word "ghost." If ScareScraper is included, it will also spell "ghosts". The trick is left intact in the German and Dutch translation. The first letters make out the words "geist" in German and "spook" in Dutch. In Dutch it only works with the first letters of the possessors and bonus missions, however. In the French translation, the first letter of each bonus mission in order read "Luigi".
In Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door, Gloomtail's room is similar to the spike room in Hooktail's Castle; if the player uses Bobbery at the right end at the wall, a room will open and an Ultra Shroom and a Jammin' Jelly can be collected.
In Rolling Gizmo Galaxy, at the first area, if the player goes right next to the still upright bridge without the Star Ball and goes into first person view, they see a lot of blue Star Bits. If the player gets on top of the bridge (by backflipping off a block and wall-jumping off of the bridge) and goes into first person view on the edge of the bridge and looks down, it is revealed that the group of blue star bits is in the shape of a Rupee (currency in The Legend of Zelda series). Knocking down the bridge makes the star bit cluster disappear.
In the Shindou Edition re-release version of Super Mario 64, at the "Press Start" screen, if the player presses Z, the background will be filled with images of Mario's face. This is taken from the frame buffer, so the faces move alongside the modeled Mario face.
Megahammer was originally going to be called Mallettoid.
