Reference in Super Mario Galaxy?
Can anyone else hear the intro to Tubba Blubba's battle theme in Super Mario Galaxy's fire flower music?
I'm not sure if this is just me, or if I should add this to the page or not. Does anyone else hear it and think it should be mentioned? --126.96.36.199 15:33, 18 April 2013 (EDT)
- I don't hear it. Mario4Ever
The Davy Jones of his Species?
- Paper Mario was released six years before Pirates of the Caribbean brought up Davy Jones's heart, so nope, it's not a reference. - Walkazo 19:33, 12 March 2016 (EST)
This might be a bit of a stretch, but...
...are there references to Jack and the Giant Beanstalk in Chapter 3 of Paper Mario? To begin, the gulch where all the brown Boos live is reminiscent of the dry plains area in which Jack lived in the story. Yakkey seems to be a parallel to the goose that lays golden eggs, and like the goose, it makes noise when found, which wakes up Tubba Blubba. Lastly, everything in Tubba Blubba's castle is gigantic (Tubba Blubba himself is a giant Clubba, the same way the giant in the Beanstalk story was a giant man). Lastly, when Mario is escaping the castle, Tubba Blubba chases him in a fury and destroys parts of it to facilitate capturing him. In the Beanstalk story, the giant chases Jack out of the castle (also destroying parts of it) before falling to his doom. I'm tempted to add this to the trivia section but I don't want to speculate too hard. Blue Ninjakoopa (talk) 10:22, 30 March 2017 (EDT)
- Certainly some interesting parallels, but this does sound like coincidence. For one thing, where's the giant beanstalk? Kinda hard to make a reference to something when you leave out an important plot detail ('course, a beanstalk does appear in Chapter 6...). It sounds interesting, but it also sounds coincidental to me. 10:50, 30 March 2017 (EDT)
