References to other games[edit]

  • Mario Party series - Many minigames from the London Party Mode resemble minigames from many past installments, and London Party resembles Mario Party games in general.
  • Mario Kart series - Moo Moo Meadows from Mario Kart Wii appears as the stage for Dream Equestrian. The countdown sound effect at the start of a race is also used in London Party, and if there are three seconds left until the end of the Dream Events. Also in Dream Fencing, players can come back as a bomb balloon similar to a Mini Bomb Kart in Mario Kart 64.
  • Paper Mario series - The HP replenish sound is used for a Skill character's special move in Badminton and Beach Volleyball.
  • Yoshi's Story - Rail Lift appears in a Dream Event.
  • Super Mario Sunshine - Gooper Blooper is the last obstacle for Dream Rafting. A remix of the boss music is also played here.
  • Super Mario Galaxy - Sounds from this game are used in Dream Space Walk. Planets from the Good Egg and Gateway appear in the Dream Spacewalk event. Dino Piranha is a rival. His boss theme is used. There is also the bee suit. Also used in Dream Space Walk, a track called "Into the Sea of Stars". The Battlerock Galaxy is also used as a Dream Event location. Also, Mario's spin move is used as his super dash, as well as an attack in the Dream Space Walk event.
  • New Super Mario Bros. Wii - Sounds from the game are used in Dream Rafting. World 4 is the location for the event. The Super Star music from this game is used in Dream Hurdles. There are Koopaling, Penguin and Propeller suits that the players can use.
  • Super Mario Galaxy 2 - Dream Space Walk takes place at the Sky Station Galaxy (named the "Synchro Battle Galaxy" in this game). Various planets from this galaxy are also seen.
  • Mario Sports Mix: Dream Fencing greatly resembles Smash Skate.
  • Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games - All the Mario series and Sonic series songs return as well as the rival themes. Also, the Miis have the same animations as this game. In the Wii version, the voices of the Mario characters and the announcer were ripped from this game, while a few others are new. The Sonic characters have a few similar voice clips as this game, but they were revoiced.
  • Super Mario Bros. 2 and Super Smash Bros. Brawl Peach's special speed boost animation (in which she floats, leaving a trail of hearts) during running events is nearly identical to her floating animation pose from Brawl.
