The page for Game Boy Gallery says the main character in its version of Ball is based on Mario, and calls him a "marionette" in the manual. The only manual I could find doesn't mention anything along those lines though:
And the only Mario-like traits I'm sure of are the overalls and gloves. The hat's completely different, the "moustache" looks more like an open mouth, the sleeves are too short and the legs are similarly bare.
Just saw a youtube video that showed the an Animal Crossing GCN e-Reader card for K.K. Slider will play the Totoka's Song in the background (when reading the letter from K.K. on the GBA). After searching the Cameos board before wanting to create a thread for it (and also verifying it in real life since I own the card), a search showed that Phil Bond found/posted about it in 2007 but it never got added to the Kazumi Totaka's Song Guide page.
Letter from K.K. Slider at 3:35
Also a addition/correction to the already known e-Reader card for Animal Crossing (P15 and P13) are from Series 4 of the card packs, so it should be seen as "Series 4: P13 and P15"

The recent GIGA leak has happened with a whole bunch of various prototype ROMS and other stuff from the SNES - N64 era including some high quality renders of 3d objects that would have appeared on boxart and instruction manuals.
Here's a high quality render of the OoT reference to the N64 Rumble Pak, the Stone of Agony item.

Shrikeswind: So, having said in my post in Dream Fighters what I've been spending my quarantine on, what about you guys? How are you hanging onto sanity?

Shrikeswind: Also I don't know that I've ever spent as long building a Smash fighter as I did with WG, and I'm going to hit this one hard here, it was all the costume work.

Shrikeswind: I'm reminded why I don't bother with that. I had the luxury of easy-to-grab screenshots and it still took literal hours to finish that post.

Nester the Lark: Let's not talk about me and sanity.

Shrikeswind: Very well, we shall talk of other things, like shoes and ships and sealing wax, and cabbages and kings, and why the sea is boiling hot, and whether pigs have wings.

Shrikeswind: It strikes me that perhaps I should not be mentioned in the same breath as sanity myself.

Boo Destroyer: RuneScape.... I haven't heard that name in a long, long time.

Shrikeswind: I still play. Matter of fact, I'm currently playing. It actually just came out with a new skill this past March, if you can believe it.

nocturnal YL: In a way, I'm glad I'm unrelated to those fan communities of the games I play. I just sit back and play games casually, not really caring whatever scandals or elitism or holier-than-thou attitudes going on.

Shrikeswind: I think I need to track down some horribly cursed Pokemon content now after that. You know, since that was such a heavy topic to drop in the middle of a quiet forum.

Nester the Lark: Also, I know YL isn't into speedruns, but he might be interested to know that RPG Limit Break is having a Gust marathon all weekend, including several Atelier games.
