Mario Kart 64 has the best music in the series in my opinion. It may be that it's the first one I played extensively, but it has left an impact on me. Love the Credits theme, Koopa Beach, Rainbow Road, and the Title/Menu themes.
Those aren't mysteries, they're just a part of the game!
I can't tell if you're just trolling these forums, or if you seriously think you're being interesting and helpful but not "getting it"...
You've broken several forum rules, sent me an angry PM because I insisted you read the website before submitting cameos, and now you're posting basic parts of 25 year old games as easter eggs that everyone has known about since 1986... Hell, some of that info was in the instruction manual!
I don't want to ban you from the forums unfairly if you really are trying, but if you carry on like this I will assume you're trolling and you will be banned.

In a recent Iwata Asks interview for The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D, Takizawa and Iwata confirm that the way a Star Fox Arwing in Star Fox 64 moves is exactly the same as Volvagia's movements in The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, which may explain why the unused Arwing enemy exists within the game code. iwataasks.nintendo.com/interviews/#/3ds/zelda-ocarina-of-time/2/2
An example from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time is the boss Volvagia, which looks like a dragon. Iwata:
Yes. The boss in the Fire Temple. Takizawa:
Volvagia is a dragon, so it wriggles and undulates. I only gave Morita-san the dragon model parts, but he set it in motion immediately. It was mysterious how he could do that. Iwata:
You were impressed—like, "I don't get it, but wow!" Takizawa:
Yeah. I couldn't help but ask how he did it. He said it was the same as the programming for Star Fox 64. There's this scene when another fighter aircraft is tailing Arwing and… Iwata:
(jumping in) Oh, that? That's right! It's the same! Takizawa:
I should have known you'd pick up on it right away! (laughs) Haruhana:
Because he's a programmer, too! (laughs) Takizawa:
But when I heard that, I didn't quite get it. I just thought, "Wow, that's cool…" Iwata:
The way the fighter moves as it flies and Volvagia's movements are exactly the same. Morita:
I could do it easily by switching in the dragon for the fighter. Takizawa:
I was like "Whoa!" and "I see!" and had a great time every day marveling over it all.
It sounds like he's saying the movements are the same as an enemy in Star Fox, not the Arwing. He says it's the movement from a "fighter aircraft" that tails the Arwing in one scene. But I can't think of any long enemies that tail you in that game.
EDIT: Unless he's just saying that he applied the programming for the ship tailing you to each part of Volvagia's body to make them tail each other. That'd make sense. There are a few enemies that tail you throughout the game, and they follow along behind you the same way Volvagia's segments follow its head.

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.)
May 6, 2021 9:58:40 GMT -5
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.
Jun 12, 2021 1:38:16 GMT -5
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.)
Jun 14, 2021 10:18:41 GMT -5
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.
Jul 8, 2021 11:28:57 GMT -5
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.
Jul 8, 2021 11:31:13 GMT -5
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.
