And apperently getting 9999 Starbits in the Main hub world turns coconuts into watermelons. Need to confirm that one though
I just got 9999 Star Bits the other day and I can confirm it does change the coconuts into watermelons. Looks like the coconuts just get some watermelon stripes on them to look like watermelons and I don't think anything else happens.

With the new cameo system, here's one. Bowser Jr.'s little airship has Bowser panels from Mario party on them. Just noticed it and I thought it was kinda cool to see something from those games in a main title.
Alright, here's one that I'd need help from someone who knows Japanese and Japense Mario resources to confirm. The octopus enemy that works like an Octorok is apparently named オタロック (Otarokku) in Japan as a reference to Octoroks. I can't find a suitable non-Mario Wiki cite for this, though, because I frankly don't know any Japanese. I don't disbelieve it or anything- they work so similar I'd be very surprised to find out they weren't an intentional homage- but as the old saying goes, trust, then verify.
