If you cast your mind back, Nintendo Database used to have icons for Information, Cameos, Easter Eggs and so on. Information was a SMW Info Block, Easter Eggs were Yoshi Eggs and so on.
I was never happy with the cameos, which was an Exclamation Block.
I am going to be using some icons on the site, and I want some ideas for cameo appearances. So far my fave ideas include a pixellated Samus helmet or Mario head, probably from one of their many cameos.
But I'm not totally sure... so please help me come up with better!

How about some blend of icons of the series that are crossed over?
EDIT: I think what you're meaning is something that symbolizes cameos, no matter of what game A in what game B. In that case, I'll borrow a bit from both Nester's and Teev's ideas and suggest "Kirby wearing a Mario hat" ;D
Wait, what are all the categories? I think it'd be cool if the icons were animated, like info could be the Info Block from Yoshi's Island...opening his mouth or whatever when the mouse hovers over it...
I do. Wasn't that based on my old old projects where the series list used icons too? ;D
These icons are being used for information across the site, rather than for individual series. At least that's the plan for now. There's a reason. I'm playing with a few different things at the moment to make finding information on the site easier, and icons will be incorporated into that.
For now, the categories are:
Information (info block) Release Data (?) Cameos (?) Easter Eggs (Yoshi egg)
There may be more in future, but for now that's all I'm worrying about.

Shrikeswind: Sidebar, I never thought I'd see the day where staying up to ungodly hours was a sign of health. Covid be wild.

nocturnal YL: Remember NinDB Top 25? My list would have been slightly different now, even if I keep the series composition: (24) Ys VIII → (18) Ys Origin; (9) Atelier Totori DX → (8) Atelier Firis DX.

nocturnal YL: Random trivia time: in Super Mario Galaxy 1, it's possible to swim in lava. The reason is that the overlapping water allows the Ice Flower to make platforms. www.youtube.com/watch?v=fUmJLqo8kWg
