Talk:List of references in the Mario franchise
Hang on a minute... There's already a Cameos article similar to this, so this is pretty much a duplicate. I think this should be deleted (and at least have some info from here that isn't in the original to be merged). Mario JC
When I created this page I wasn't aware that the cameos page existed but if it comes down to a choice between the articles I think that this article has the most relevant title. Commander Code-8
Mario TV Epidodes
Many Mario episodes of the old TV shows were based on movies, such as Star Wars and Robocop, with a Ghostbusters crossover. Why can't they be mentioned?

- Basically, 2/3 episodes of every cartoon series are based onnce wh old film hits like Star Wars, I suppose it's because of that. TSUNAMI
Intentional or Not?
I don't know if it's intentional or not, but the tune that plays when a player ranks out in Super Mario Kart sounds exactly like a segment from Julius Fučík's "Entry of the Gladiators". If so, can we list it as a reference? Super Mario Kart - Ranked Out and Julius Fučík's "Entry of the Gladiators" Torey (talk) 04:16, 11 March 2018 (EDT)
- That's definitely intentional; "Entry of the Gladiators" is a famous song. It's already listed, though it said it only "sounds similar" to the song before I fixed it. Mario JC 05:19, 11 March 2018 (EDT)
In the original Donkey Kong, it sounds like the music that plays when Donkey Kong is climbing to the top of the construction site with Pauline was inspired by the beginning portion of the theme song of "Dragnet". Just listen to it, and tell me what you think. Torey (talk) 21:18, 11 April 2018 (EDT)
- Don't bump. This is not a forum. I still have topics that haven't been answered in half a year, you can be patient. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 06:21, 12 April 2018 (EDT)
- It's an iconic tune that's also made its way to a number of other games, too, so I'd say so. Mario JC 07:01, 12 April 2018 (EDT)
About the template for a rewrite: I don't think the article has to be rewritten, per se, but rather that speculation should be labeled as such (for example, "House of Boos from Mario Party: Star Rush is directly based on the Pac-Man arcade game" is speculation and should be labeled as it, while "The music that plays when the player begins Phase 1 is Mozart's Eine kleine Nachtmusik" is not speculation and should be kept as is).
