WarioWare, Inc: Mega Microgame$ was originally made in secret by members of Nintendo R&D1. When they eventually revealed their project to management, they were given the okay to continue development.

The game wasn't originally going to star Wario, but he was thrown in on a whim because he "was very stupid and was always doing idiotic things."

The "hi-ya" in Funky Kong's theme from Donkey Kong Country is sampled from "The Pleasure Seekers" by The System.

This is probably more well-known trivia but Funky's Fugue is notably the only song in Donkey Kong Country composed by Robin Beanland (composer of Killer Instinct, Conker's Bad Fur Day, Sea of Thieves, etc.) instead of David Wise or Eveline Fischer, who are otherwise the only composers for the SNES DKC trilogy. This is because Funky's Fugue was originally a song written for Killer Instinct, and an early version can be seen in this KI promotional trailer.

So that's why he hasn't been in any later games.

Upon finding Terra in Zozo in Final Fantasy VI, your party will converse with Ramuh using generic scripted dialogue. If you make it to Ramuh with only Gau in your party, however, he will have his own unique dialogue that fits his odd way of speaking.

^That’s fascinating, especially because some of the generic script is still in there if the wording is simple enough.

Smash spoilers from the E3 Direct, in case you've somehow avoided them til now:

Apparently Japanese SSB fans have started calling Ridley "Captain America" because of his huge American fanbase getting him into Ultimate.

Octopath Traveler has a character who speaks with a type of Early Modern English, including a very consistent system of verb conjugation (I thinke, thou thinkest, they thinken, etc). The game also has no official Chinese translation. Because of these two things, some Chinese players have nicknamed the game “TEM-8 Traveler,” TEM being a standardized Chinese exam entitled “Test for English Majors.”
