Please post your screenshots for cameos that are already on the site here.
A few guidelines:
High quality PNG screenshots are requested where possible.
Where possible, please submit your screenshots as PNGs. If you have BMP files, but no method of converting them to PNGs, then email them to me or Zip them up and post them somewhere so I can download them.
Low quality screenshots are useful for proving cameos, but they will not be used on the site.
JPEGs may be acceptable so long as the compression isn't too high.
For screenshots taken with a TV Card, some loss of quality will be acceptable.
Please do not edit or crop your images yourself. I will handle that at my end if required.
01 is nothing special, but maybe someone could find something important in those symbols? 05 is Popple saying "I'll remember this, which is what Birdo says when you beat her in Super Mario Advance. Birdo and Popple eventually become "a couple" in this game. 06, 07, and 08 are from a book in Beanbean Castle Town that makes mention of the Gamecube controller. I think it's just mentioning that if you play this game on your Gamecube, you can find hidden items... 09 is a ghost from Luigi's Mansion. Whenever these ghosts appear, they only bother Luigi and chase him around. 22 is also nothing in particular, but this painting only appears in this area of Hoohoo Hooniversity (as well as some battles) so maybe it's an inside joke? Who knows. 24 is a part of the barrel jumping minigame. Luigi seems to take the place of Pauline when he yells "Heeeallp!!" 25 are just crabs. But given the cameo in 49, I think they were meant to be Sidesteppers. 26 is the Toad Express. The plane from Super Mario Sunshine. 27 and 28 show Luigi with the Poltergust, another reference to Luigi's Mansion. 29 shows the Super Poltergust 3001 which is rideable. This could be a lead in the the Poltergust 4000 which Luigi rode in Mario Kart DS. 32 is the arcade with the D-pad A-B scheme on top. I looked all over to a reference to WIN-tendo (as you have listed on the site) but I couldn't find it 34 and 35 is the Koopa Clown Car. 36 and 37 show a flagpole outside of the hospital in Little Fungitown. If Luigi (or Mario later in the game) jumps on it, he slides to the bottom and then jumps off. 40 and 41 is just Luigi being gay XD 49 is a Sidestepper that will randomly appear during the battle with Hermie. 50 and 51 show Boddle turning into an egg and performing the throw move (with himself) from Yoshi's Island. 53 is a secret cave. In these caves, whenever you touch something the death music from Super Mario Bros. plays (in 8-bit) and your character falls off the screen. 54 and 55 is just a character that looks like Petey Piranha. 57 is during the battle with Popple and Birdo. If you beat Popple first, Birdo says "That's as far as you go!" which is also what she says in Super Mario Advance.
The Koopalings' intros reflect their personality and sometimes how they were fought in previous Mario games. Iggy is shown to be hyperactive (especially in New Super Mario Bros.) so what he does is spin around the Bros. super fast to make them dizzy (59 and 60). When Morton was fought in past games, he would climb up the ceiling and jump down. Here he does the same but also creates shockwaves (61). In Super Mario World, Lemmy would hide in a pipe and sometimes a fake would pop out while he attacks. Here he creates three fakes and you have to find the right one (63). Whenever Ludwig had been fought, he would slide around in his spiked shell. Here he does the same and so Mario and Luigi have to make timed jumps to dodge him (65). Roy would also jump up and try to stomp on the Bros. He was also in charge of the sky in Super Mario Bros 3. Before you fight him here, he jumps up into the air for quite some time, then lands on the Bros. because they think he left (70). In Super Mario World, Wendy would pop out of random warp pipes. Here she does the same and you have to whack her with a hammer (71). Strangely enough, Larry is the only one who I can't figure out. He hits a fireball to a Bob-Omb with a tennis racket, trying to blow up Luigi...unless that's the same racket Bowser uses in Mario Tennis...I don't see anything stand-out here (72). Additionally the battle order is the same as Super Mario World.
64 is the Mecha-Koopa from Super Mario World. 66, 67, 68, and 69 is an area in Bowser's Castle where Mario crosses a bridge and jumps on the axe. Then the bridge disappears and the fake Bowser is dropped in the lava. 73 appears to be taken from the ending of Super Mario Sunshine but with Luigi added.

Shrikeswind: Just woke up and within like a half an hour my brother-in-law sends me two pics of the little rapscallion. Not sharing because I don't believe in posting baby pics on the Internet, but I will say he's clearly going to be a genius.
Aug 31, 2022 3:49:29 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: His name is Elliott, btw.

nocturnal YL: Good to hear! Best of wishes to you and to your sister's family.

Nester the Lark: Congrats again, Uncle Shrikes!

Nester the Lark: The Japanese voice actor for Adol (of the Ys series), Yuji Kaji, will be making an appearance at Konami's TGS presentation to "represent the fans." In the past, Konami has showcased Falcom's games at TGS. I wonder if there will be more to it...

Nester the Lark: I'm reluctant to do spoiler discussions because if people are playing the game, they wouldn't want spoilers, and if they're not playing the game, they wouldn't be interested anyway.
Sept 3, 2022 9:00:36 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: I'm… not sure if I'll read your spoiler discussions. I don't think I'll get the chance to play this, but at the same time, I'm not entirely sure I won't, either.

nocturnal YL: I have yet another pile of games waiting to be played. Due to various circumstances (I'm busy at work, this month's weekends are filled with family events, and Project DIVA Mega Mix just got new DLC), I'm not able to play them yet.
Sept 4, 2022 11:30:56 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: I'm currently at 34 Switch games played. I've been thinking about my Switch review videos and I'll make another at 36 or 40 games. Leaning towards 36.
Sept 4, 2022 11:38:00 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: I actually wanted to remake the older ones as well. I didn't notice that the 2nd video had volume issues in the audio until I have my current PC.

Nester the Lark: If you're thinking of playing Xenoblade Chronicles 3, then definitely *don't* read the late-game spoilers I posted.
Sept 4, 2022 19:04:34 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: So I assume everyone here's heard the news but for those who haven't, Queen Elizabeth died today.
Sept 8, 2022 14:50:28 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: I learned on the way home from work today - I stopped in at a McDonalds for lunch, was checking the news in line, and...well, there it was.
Sept 8, 2022 14:51:39 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: I knew it was serious when I heard the whole royal family dropped whatever they were doing to be by her side.
Sept 9, 2022 8:49:46 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: I'm not British, but there's never not been a Queen of England during my lifetime (and indeed, most of a lifetime before that), so even though I knew it had to happen eventually, it still feels a little weird.
Sept 9, 2022 8:50:55 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: I guess there is still the "Queen Consort," but I'm talking about how there's a King now.
Sept 9, 2022 9:13:49 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: Well, a lot to take in there. I'll post my impressions either later or tomorrow.
Sept 13, 2022 9:47:11 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: The English lip sync in Xenoblade Chronicles 3 has spoiled me. I was hoping Fire Emblem: Engage would have it, too, but comparing the English and Japanese trailers, it doesn't seem to be the case.
Sept 19, 2022 8:44:03 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: Wondering if I should create a thread for Fire Emblem: Engage, or just talk about it in the general Fire Emblem thread...
