[QUOTE="Carol of the Vals, post: 1615415, member: 30663"]The script for Sonic '06 ends the character description for Silver the Hedgehog with, "Essentially, think Trunks from Dragon Ball Z."[/QUOTE]
It's just too bad Silver doesn't have a jerkass father who actually cares(but barely shows it). I always wondered who were intended to represent Androids 17 and 18 if anyone. Metal Sonic is kind of blatantly Cell at this point, due to the constant absorbing of data and all. Best guess is the Sonic Adventure E-Series, with Gamma being as close to 18 as possible(due to turning good eventually. Arguably could also be 16 instead).
What's the matter, scared?

I thought their names were confirmed "Mario Mario" and "Luigi Mario." I think after the film Nintendo denied it but I seem to recall that much later they accepted it.

In Ocarina of Time, Dark Link's health in battle is a reflection of Link's: the number of hits Dark Link can take from the Master Sword before dying is equal to the number of Heart Containers the player has.

^ Beats me.

In the German localization of Ocarina of Time, a Gossip Stone states that Ganondorf's steed came straight from hell.

Does this also affect how many hits it takes to kill him with the Megaton Hammer? Because that's how I've always done it...

The dialogue at your first encounter with Romani Caravan as a full party in Tales of Symphonia changes depending on a) where they are and b) whether or not you met them first as just Genis and Lloyd. If you meet them on the Hard Path route they try to discourage you from going further North (probably to prevent new players from accidentally going to the area 5-10 levels above them). Also, if you had visited them as Genis and Lloyd, there's extra dialogue where Lloyd's like "AYY IT'S YOU" and Raine thanks them for helping her 2 dumb kids when they were on their own; otherwise Lloyd just barges in with the group and goes "who the heckie are you nerds"

I only played through ToS once a long time ago but hearing that makes me appreciate the level of detail they put into the game.

If you drop All-Purpose Bait on the ground during your battle with Puppet Ganon's third phase (the Moldorm one) in The Wind Waker, he'll go after it.

Long John Baldry, who voiced Dr. Robotnik in the Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog cartoon, was also a popular blues singer.

Clefairy was originally intended to be the mascot of the Pokémon franchise rather than Pikachu. Clefairy served as Red's Pokémon of choice in Pokémon Pocket Monsters, the first Pokémon manga series. It was intended to be the same for the anime, but Clefairy was swapped out for Pikachu at the last moment because the higher ups thought the more petlike Pikachu would appeal better to young girls. They also thought a yellow Pokémon would stand out more at a time when the only other popular yellow children's character was Winnie the Pooh. The extreme popularity of the anime and Pikachu's familiarity with fans resulted in Pikachu becoming the franchise mascot.

^Now imagine the alternate timeline where Clefairy is chosen as the Pokemon mascot and ends up receiving the same weight loss treatment that Pikachu did over time.

In the japanese version of Paper Mario, each NPC in Town Town has unique dialogue if you access the southern part of the town before Chapter 1 is completed. (so, sequence-breaking) What do they say? Variations on "this message should not appear."

So I had no idea that Steven Spielberg created the Medal of Honor series and wrote the first game.
