In the "Day at the Races" minigame in Mario Party 2, each racer has three possible animations that can play prior to selecting them. The faster the animation, the better the racer will perform. The exception is Thwomp, which almost always performs poorly.

A unique death tune for the K. Rool battles is present in Donkey Kong Country 2's data. Due to a programming oversight, however, the regular boss death tune is used for the K. Rool battles instead.

The only Chain Chomp in Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island is found near the beginning of Sluggy the Unshaven's Fort. It cannot be defeated with normal attacks, but certain items like the POW Block can destroy it. Doing so will reveal a hidden message block that gives you a code to play Mini Battles anytime you want.

The roars of Dogadon from Donkey Kong 64 are stock clips of Ted Cassidy voicing Godzilla from the eponymous Hanna-Barbera cartoon.

From the same game, Mad Jack's chatter comes from stock clips of Clarence Nash voicing Donald Duck.

Riesz in Trials of Mana has a tragic keepsake of her mother, her ribbon.

The remake especially does a good job of showing that this is her hair ribbon. However, if you class change, the colour of her hair ribbon changes. Wow, you jerk.
..wait a minute, look at Riesz's left hand. Yep. No matter her class, she has her mother's ribbon around her wrist.

Not sure if this counts as Trivia, but the shoppers in Hyrule Castle Town are actually a single model of a horrifying flesh mass

The Houndeye from Half-Life was originally envisioned as a friendly character that would follow Gordon around like a guard dog, but this behavior was dropped because playtesters would invariably shoot this thing as soon as they saw it.

Tony Rosato, the voice of Luigi in the Super Mario Bros. 3 and Super Mario World cartoon, also voiced Nemesis in Resident Evil 3.

Ah voice actor trivia. It's kind of amusing when you look to see who did who.

For example.

Same voice actor.

The PC port of Sonic & Knuckles has radically different music for Carnival Night, Ice Cap, and Launch Base than the Genesis version. For a long time, fans assumed this was due to licensing issues as the music for these three zones was composed by Michael Jackson and members of his sound team. However, a Sonic 3 prototype uncovered last year also features these alternate tracks, suggesting that they were in fact the originals and were later replaced by Jackson's music.

That also changed popular opinion on the S3K Collection tracks, I've noticed. Before that revelation, most people thought "ew replacement music" and never really cared about it, but now you have people who say that the prototype tracks are actually better than the final versions. Just thought that was interesting.

I didn't play much of Sonic 3, unfortunately. I only had the first two and 3D Blast as a kid, so I don't have a bias for any particular versions. I think they're both fine.
