In the "Day at the Races" minigame in Mario Party 2, each racer has three possible animations that can play prior to selecting them. The faster the animation, the better the racer will perform. The exception is Thwomp, which almost always performs poorly.

A unique death tune for the K. Rool battles is present in Donkey Kong Country 2's data. Due to a programming oversight, however, the regular boss death tune is used for the K. Rool battles instead.

The only Chain Chomp in Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island is found near the beginning of Sluggy the Unshaven's Fort. It cannot be defeated with normal attacks, but certain items like the POW Block can destroy it. Doing so will reveal a hidden message block that gives you a code to play Mini Battles anytime you want.

The roars of Dogadon from Donkey Kong 64 are stock clips of Ted Cassidy voicing Godzilla from the eponymous Hanna-Barbera cartoon.

From the same game, Mad Jack's chatter comes from stock clips of Clarence Nash voicing Donald Duck.

Riesz in Trials of Mana has a tragic keepsake of her mother, her ribbon.

The remake especially does a good job of showing that this is her hair ribbon. However, if you class change, the colour of her hair ribbon changes. Wow, you jerk.
..wait a minute, look at Riesz's left hand. Yep. No matter her class, she has her mother's ribbon around her wrist.
