In Tomato Adventure, the victory theme resembles Super Mario RPG's victory theme. What I mean is that both of these are songs that are played after you win small battles in both RPGs.
In Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga, there is some crab-looking creature with a Christmas Tree on top of it. This creature came from the sunken ship place in Tomato Adventure as an enemy.
A couple of Tomato Adventure soundtracks were found hidden in Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga after people dumped its entire track list into GSF files. Their quality is similar to the sound of Game Boy Color music, which probably means that they are the tracks used in the Game Boy Color prototype of Tomato Adventure, Gimmick Land. They were perhaps also used in Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga for testing its audio.

Huge necrobump, but I haven't seen this cameo mentioned on the site. It's a rather minor one but comes in the game rather lately.
When you get outside Hanzou Lab 6 (links Soy City with Balsami Dome; it's the bottom left one on the map) it's a small dump site with several objects partially buried in the ground. Two of these are Game Boy Colors (well they look like Game Boy Colors but they have buttons like this "+---"), the top left one is a red Game Boy Color and the bottom right is a purple one. They both have smashed screens.
I only have played through a real Tomato Adventure cartridge so unfortunately can't get any good screenshots at the moment.
Shoddy 3DS Camera placeholder screenshot:
Also, I think Parrothead mentioned this somewhere else on the Internet. The overworld map in Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga is reminiscent of the one in Tomato Adventure (with Bowser's Castle in the centre replacing the Gimmick Palace).
edit 1: Also, I don't know what to make of this but one of the in-game sound effects (e.g. when one of the Hanzou brothers makes you a new Gimmick) sounds really similar to one of the horrible static noises when you pull a GBA cartridge out of the console when the game is still running. I manually pulled out Tomato Adventure but the sounds don't match, and since Koto Battle was GBC I don't know what to make of it, though maybe I should try it with Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga later <
Nester the Lark: Here's an archive of results from the Everybody Votes channel. I found my poll question in the US English section for September 1, 2009.

nocturnal YL: Do you consider yourself to be more of a ... Romantic: 39.1% Realist: 60.9% This one, right? So… what's your own vote to that question? (I'd have picked realist.)

Nester the Lark: ^ At the time, I think I picked romantic. Not sure what I'd pick today. I feel like I'm somewhere in between.

Nester the Lark: Lately, the forum feels more like "Nester & YL's clubhouse."

nocturnal YL: Looking at the other members' last online date, I can safely say that this place is pretty much inactive by now.

Nester the Lark: Looking at an old post I wrote two years ago, I noticed I misspelled "threw" as "through," and now I'm angry at myself.

nocturnal YL: …Why am I still seeking gaming news when I have 7 games yet to complete and at least 2 more that I plan to get? (EDIT — Oh right, Ys IX has a confirmed release date. That makes at least 3 games I'll get later.)

nocturnal YL: My current plan is to play Atelier Firis DX now, which online guides suggest is long. Atelier Lydie & Suelle DX will likewise be long (longer than the original too, due to DLC, DX additions and I'll make the best items). I'll maybe play Ys Origin after.
Jun 14, 2021 10:28:43 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Not sure about what I'll play after. Another Atelier game will probably be out by then, either completing the Secret series or giving us Arland 5. Either way, I'll probably play those before going elsewhere. Dusk will have to wait for quite a bit…

Nester the Lark: Wondering if I should get Mario Golf at launch or wait a couple of months. I have so many other things to play that my gaming (and wallet) might need a little breathing room.

Nester the Lark: The problem with playing Hyrule Warriors and a modern Ys game at the same time is that even though the combat feels somewhat similar, the controls are completely different, and I get confused.

Shrikeswind: Yeah I'm here, but kinda vaguely. Sorry, I haven't had too much to say lately.

Shrikeswind: By the way, I don't know if you guys have been keeping up with OCR on YouTube, but apparently they're dropping an album for a game I grew up on, Jet Force Gemini. Really pumped; I'll post a review when they finish.

Shrikeswind: Or at least when my Top 3 from that game are on the Toobz. Just one more song to go.

Nester the Lark: I feel like I've been neglecting the forum more than usual lately. Been distracted by other things. I'll try to post something when I get the chance.

nocturnal YL: I don't have time to make posts. Atelier Firis DX takes forever to play. When I'm not playing, I'm in a read-only mode, reading guides and watching (unrelated) videos.
Jul 17, 2021 13:25:38 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: On that note, I'll probably make a review on the whole trilogy, so it will be a while until I talk about these games in details here. I can say Atelier Firis DX has far exceeded my expectation and has taken over Totori as my 3rd fav.
