As my first post since my hiatus...
Yellow Link. I don't have a picture right now, but if Link drinks the Great Fairy's Tears or Rare Chu Jelly, he turns gold as evidence that he's been vitalized by the juice. It's interesting, but like I said I don't have any ACTUAL evidence other than my word.
Less seriously, Old Manondorf is Christopher Lee. =P
I will more than likely need help writing up the Smash Bros. cameo pages for the main playable-character series. These will be treated as separate pages to the main lists of cameos, and will cover all three games. I'll have to put one together as an example, and then others can help out.
I guess the first one I'll do is Mario to get that out of your way. I've still got notes from a failed nostalgia guide too, plus CrappyCaptureDevice's new series- Mario is one of two character's he's done.

Alright, I've read through this entire thread and I don't remember anybody finding this costume.
So not to long ago, I was looking to buy a ROB off of Ebay (already bought and received one, actually) and I've run into this colored ROB in a few different auctions:
Compared to the yellow ROB in Brawl:
If you look at the real life yellow ROB, its arms are darker than the rest of its body. The same can be said about the yellow ROB in Brawl, but the Brawl yellow rob has two spots of the same color on the front of its base whereas the real life ROB does not. So, I dunno what that's about. And having some parts being black on the Brawl yellow ROB (that aren't black on the other costumes) isn't helping my case either.
The ROB in Brawl is obviously darker, but I believe the reason for that is to increase the difference in appearance among the ROB "costumes." If the yellow ROB in Brawl was actually designed like the yellow ROB in the above pictures, it would have looked too much like the grey ROB. So the designers might have darkened it up to make it look different, while still retaining the reference. (Just a theory, not saying it's actually what happened.)
Funny thing is, I don't ever remember reading about any yellow-colored ROBs being manufactured anywhere. It makes me wonder what the deal is with this yellow ROB.
At first, I thought that maybe it was a discolored ROB that had been sitting in the sun for the last 25 years, but that color doesn't look like the type of discoloration old plastic tends to get, not to mention the neck and part of the base are the same color as the regular American NES-colored ROB.

Another big weakness is that Gold ROB has orange arms, while real yellow ROB's arms are khaki. Not to mention that Gold ROB's base pole is the same color as the rest of him, while yellow ROB's is whitish. It's interesting, but it seems too different at least for me.
I always thought that the yellow R.O.B. was based on Diskun. He is black and yellow, too, you know. And most of R.O.B.'s palette swaps are usually based on Nintendo hardware. You have the Japanese R.O.B., and the American R.O.B., and the R.O.B. with American SNES colors, and the R.O.B. with Diskun's colors. The green one is from one of the R.O.B. enemies in the Subspace Emissary and the blue one is made-up because we need a Blue Team color.
Personally I would have loved to see a R.O.B. with Virtual Boy colors. R.O.B.'s head would practically resemble the console itself! Maybe in SSB4...

I'd have preferred a continuation of the console theme rather than what they seem to have done (like Diskun ROB, which was decent but meh, and that hideous blue ROB,) i.e., Wii ROB (a white and blue ROB, if you remember the hack you'll know what I mean,) GCN ROB (I'd go with violet and black here,) and maybe even make green ROB all motherboard-y.

Red ROB was Japanese ROB. Virtual Boy ROB would definitely be cool, but would probably work better as a sort of "Dark ROB" in the same sense as we have dark Pit, dark Zelda, and Blood Falcon.
It's definitely the right shade of yellow, at least for the arms, but what about the lighter body? I'm pretty sure the box wouldn't be the basis for that, so I'd need to see the console itself to determine that.
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.

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.
Jul 8, 2021 11:30:44 GMT -5
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.
Jul 16, 2021 10:38:22 GMT -5
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.
Jul 17, 2021 13:31:06 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Uh, I take that back. Atelier Firis has a lot of merits, but also a lot of drawbacks. It's extremely tedious for 100% completion, and there are all kinds of other flaws. Still good for the exploration aspect and certain plots like Liane's character events.
Aug 9, 2021 13:38:12 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: I don't know where I'd place it. A bit above Atelier Totori? A bit below it? I still think it's pretty good, at any rate. If only they could keep this game's engine but dial back its scale and make a traditional Atelier. Totally not foreshadowing anything.

Nester the Lark: I've finished Ys IX, so I'll be working on a detailed write-up and comparison with Ys VIII.

Spud: I try to keep up with here, but the proboard RSS feed suuuucks. And Thunderbird is barely passable as a feed aggregator. I feel like the internet was just better in 2007.

Nester the Lark: I may have a little time to catch my breath...

nocturnal YL: Game progress update: Atelier Lydie & Suelle DX — defeated Falgior, so it's about 1/3 done (about 1/4 if I count post-game item grinding); WarioWare: Get It Together! — played up to the staff credits (about 5%, I guess).

nocturnal YL: This pic is how I'd rate my games on Nintendo Switch so far (subject to change). Numbers are meant to show relative positions; like temperatures in °C and °F, absolute values don't mean much.
