Do you count returning cameos in remakes? Kirby Super Star Ultra still has the Stone ability transformations in the original. Don't know if you will count the HAL logo cameo as well.
Also with Kirby Ultra, if you count the HAL block cameo in Kirby's Adventure, Ultra has it as well.
Tell me if you need more info on these.
...More to come!
- One of its soundtracks in Fire Emblem 11 is taken from FE9. Having never played the game though, I cannot tell where it takes place. (Track 33 here: Serenes Forest FE11 track listing) - FE12 has the same FE8 music in the same places (arena and training grounds), having reused many of the FE11 things. The FE9 battle music did not return. - In the same manner, FE8 has FE2 and FE4 music (FE8 arena battle = FE2 player phase battle, FE8 areana prepatation = FE4 prologue map theme). (I would view FE cameos to be too in-series, seeing that picking music from previous games, as well as recurring characters like the fourth wall-breaking Anna and the Ike-loving Aimee, are a series-wide tradition) - You mentioned the G-ZERO cameo also in Star Fox Command in X-Scape, but you did not mention G-ZERO in the Star Fox Command page.
Here is not the place for posting changes or new cameos. Please do that in the cameo board.
Also, YL, I sent you a request for more details on the KSS and KSSU HAL room to your private messages a couple days ago, as you mentioned they were there, but never actually said where (at least, you didn't in the cameos board or in an email).

I know it's been on the site since before the update, but I absolutely love how Nester's cameo in NES Play Action Football says, "Submitted by Nester." It's like he submitted his own cameo, which of course is exactly what Nester would do! I hope that's what people think if they see that.
Adapting old cameos (e.g. WarioWare: Twisted) with people's modern forum names was weird. I had to keep checking to make sure I had the right one.
Theq... not to be confused with The Qu. ;D
The Qu... Your contribution has not gone unnoticed. Several members have been meticulous in their cameo hunting over the years, and I feel I have been letting you all down. Hopefully, this goes someway towards making up for that!

Just wondering, if I did mention the fact that Capsule J in Kirby Super Star has been based on Konami's Twinbee, is it a cameo? Twinbee just was quite hot stuff around kids in that time, so it's no wonder they used him as the base on Jet-ability's helper.
I would like to know if it was based on Twinbee, or it was later decided that it looked too much like Twinbee and so they'd better change it.
I've been wondering about this one for a while... Not sure if it's supposed to be a cameo or not...
And The Qu... I'm not sure it was about time. I've nearly abandoned the site a few times, but I keep coming back. I was starting to think I was never going to manage it. I'd still like to know if I'll ever get the Smash Bros. cameos up! ;D

None confirms this, but seeing how popular Twinbee was back in 90's (Twinbee Paradise and such), it might be no wonder. It could've been a tribute to Twinbee, but later Nintendo decided to play safe and change the character design.
Maybe it could be worth of mentioning that, though?
I have done a big ol' overhaul of the Nintendo 3DS game pages, including all packaged, downloaded and included software, and then slipped all the cameos in.
The pages are also showing off a new style that I've been working on. Why? Because this style makes it easier to cover multi-game miniseries titles (e.g. the DSiWare "Express" games, which have been a problem in the current design). It also forces me to write a short intro. I will be rolling this out, starting with 3DS, Wii and DS, so I shouldn't fall so far behind.
Nester the Lark: Hello, NinDB world! Post your shouts here! (But be careful not to wake the neighbors. )

nocturnal YL: Guys, guys! I can't believe what I found in Zelda 1! The game features an Elimination Mode that for some reason not many talked about! I wonder if it's fun? (Don't actually try it.)

nocturnal YL: Hey, I can edit shoutbox posts! This is already better than Twitter!

Nester the Lark: It seems like Cadence of Hyrule should be more popular than it is. Are people put off by the rhythm aspect? Or the randomly-generated maps?
Jul 24, 2020 14:01:59 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: ↑ Might warrant its own thread, but I think mixing rhythm and other genres usually resuls in gameplay too difficult for many. I can't handle it well either, judging from my scores in Dedede's Drum Dash.

nocturnal YL: ↑ For me personally, it simply hasn't been considered. It's a download-only game (until now) from a series I'm unfamiliar with and didn't feel like trying out.
Jul 24, 2020 23:02:40 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: Ironically, I did create a thread for Cadence of Hyrule, but then deleted it thinking there wouldn't be any discussion on it. Maybe I'll go ahead and make a new one.

Shrikeswind: Something to bear in mind about the shoutbox if you’re not already aware: It doesn’t show up on the mobile version of the forums. This shouldn’t be a major problem, but it can make it difficult to get into discussions for mobile visitors.
Jul 26, 2020 1:40:18 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: Also the more obvious character limit issues, and the format not really being conducive to longer-term discussion. It’s useful but limited; threads definitely still have their place.

Shrikeswind: (Honestly, Proboards mobile is pretty bad in general, but...)
Jul 26, 2020 1:46:07 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: Not sure if this works on all devices, but you can force the desktop version of the forum by scrolling all the way to the bottom and clicking the "Desktop" link at the lower right.

Shrikeswind: I’m aware. I’m typing this from my phone. I’m just pointing out that, for people who aren’t aware or who may be casually checking in on their phone, the shoutbox won’t be visible on

Shrikeswind: Is there a Discord for NinDB, by the way? It’s very popular with them there young’ns these days, so it might help activity.
Jul 26, 2020 22:07:47 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: There is no NinDB Discord. There was a brief discussion of it a few years ago, but nothing ultimately came of it. I rarely use Discord, myself.
Jul 27, 2020 8:58:28 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: Hm. Seems like it might be a good idea if activity picks up. Not to be a pessimist but I do have my doubts that'll happen though.
Jul 29, 2020 3:00:10 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: Okay not a Nintendo topic but I kinda need to talk about this because I just learned it and it's a thing so bleh.

Shrikeswind: You remember Disney's Hunchback of Notre Dame, right? So apparently, 5 year old me was incapable of discerning male and female in non-humans, because *apparently* there's a female gargoyle, and the goat's a boy.
