Always thought it was some random red haired karate dude in the middle of a flying kick. Which makes no sense now that I look at it, since the pose would be extremely awkward

See their legs?
Legless pilots can handle more Gs than their legged bretherin. When gravity forces blood from the brain to lower extremities, it causes the pilot to black out. But if you have no legs to force blood to, more blood can stay in the brain, and it's easier for the heart to pump blood back to the brain.

Their legs were probably voluntarily amputated as these are all trained pilots. Their futuristic society allows for prosthetics that allows them to walk and run normally so there's no loss in performing these amputations.
my mind was blown, not sure if this is common knowledge or not

Also checked it in Starfox Adventures. You can't see it on Fox, because he wears normal shoes and long trousers over his mechanical feet, but Slippy clearly has mechanical feet.

Looks like boots to me. This is probably only canon to SNES SF since SF64 has G-Diffusers in the arwings to reduce the amount of Gs on a pilot.

This makes me sad

It's because they actually are hand puppets.

This makes me happy again

I thought the Morton Koopa Jr was in reference to Morton Downey Jr. I don't think they really thought it through that they it would imply that Bowsers name was actual Morton. Seems to be a music theme going on with most of the Koopa child.
Yeah. Morton Downey Jr. was still pretty big at the time when SMB 3 came out. His show was new and started the Jerry Springer-esque trashy talk show format.


FAKE EDIT: Looking it up, it appears that the koopalings were named after various music and talk show talents, with Morton being named after someone who was both. (I mean, Ludwig and Lemmy, duh. But otherwise...)

They're also, phase-for-phase, copied into Oracle of Ages or Seasons if you link a completed save with the other game and beat it again. They're the last boss there. I imagine this is unknown to a lot of people since most didn't play the linked game.

I just found this out. Kotake and Koume from Zelda have their names written on their headbands in katakana.



The writing on his sword says "Zubora Gabora", the blacksmiths from Majora's Mask.

Also, DAMN at the Star Fox one.
EDIT:
Stranger still is that the Hylian used is the one commonly found in Wind Waker and not OoT.
It's Katakana not Hylian.

Very simple Halo fact I noticed earlier today.

This was the best picture I could find. While it's obvious that when you kill someone, it'll say "You killed X," and vice versa when you're killed, the HUD will actually differentiate between enemies killing allies and vice versa. When a teammate kills an enemy, it says "X killed Y," while when one of your teammates gets killed, it says "X was killed by Y." Just something minor I noticed.
