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.
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.

nocturnal YL: Ah… Bad timing. I didn't read this until now, when it's almost over.

Nester the Lark: Well, if you're still interested, they'll be uploading the replays to their YouTube channel later this week.

Shrikeswind: I like that Mayles put her back in her kneepads. What's the last game they were in? One of the Kongas? It was a good look for her, albeit very 90's.

Shrikeswind: The jokes call to me, their siren song a temptation I can hardly bear, yet I must stay my tongue. Confound my dirty sense of humor.

Nester the Lark: The replies I see to anything Nintendo posts on Twitter are probably an indication as to why they abandoned Miiverse and decided that social media should be someone else's responsibility.
