On orders from Hauptmann Fry himself, here is a topic about Mario Party cameos. There is bound to be some more in this series that hasn't been touched on yet.
The one I know of and what spawned this thread if Face Lift, which is a minigame in the first two games that is pretty much the Mario Face from 64 as a minigame.
The series is in many respects a repository for things from the main or other side series. See: The first reappearance of the dolphins from SMW in the first time in a decade in MP4, or the pirate shy guys and spear guys from MP1. Feel free to suggest extreme cases like these, even if they don't end up counting.
Fry Edit: Fixed the topic title.

Yes, due to the surprising LACK of cameos in Mario Party, I would like to hear about all the in-series cameos. Try to keep it reasonable... A stage based on Luigi's Mansion or Super Mario Sunshine may be worthy of mention, for example, but a stage featuring Princess Peach's Castle wouldn't (as that's just a general Mario series location rather than a specific location from a particular game).
Eh, it's complicated. Post whatever and I'll sift through it

In Mario Party 1:
Mario's Rainbow Castle board is themed after Super Mario 64 levels such as Rainbow Ride, Tower of the Wing Cap and Wing Mario Over the Rainbow. In the title screen corresponding this board, Mario is seen flying with a Wing Cap.
Musically, some cool detail that I remember is that certain mini-games featured songs from Super Mario Bros. 3 maps.
Platform Peril: The Sky / Sky Land (ground section)
Pedal Power, Ghost Guess: Iced Land / Ice Land
Skateboard Scamper: Bowser's Castle / Castle of Koopa / Dark Land
And Yoshi still uses his original whistle voice ;D
In Mario Party 5:
A toy similar to Mecha Bowser from Super Mario Sunshine is in the Toy Dream board.

Hearing about your escapades rocks my soul! It sure does! Click! ...... ......
The duel minigame Slammer is pretty much Judge from Game & Watch.
The Poochy Pal might count. Poochy hasn't appeared since Yoshi's Story, and the game is specifically designed to look like Yoshi's Story.
Honestly, a lot of weird, obscure characters are in this game. The Huffin Puffins, Naval Piranha, SMW Goombas, the Dolphins form SMW, Bob-Omb Buddies, Petal Guys, Hoot the owl from SM64. It's really strange that they appeared in this game of all games.
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.)

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.

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.)

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.

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.

Shrikeswind: Or at least when my Top 3 from that game are on the Toobz. Just one more song to go.

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.

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.
