Hello, readers! I'm your Spotlight manager and Pipe Plaza Director, Yoshi876. Welcome to Retro Feature, a section in which I delve deep into the archives to bring you the best blasts from the past. This time I bring you a section from a previous Editor-in-Chief, Beanbean (talk), and for the first time since I started writing this section, it isn’t her first one!

Beanbean joined the MarioWiki on 12th February 2007. Beanbean made her 'Shroom debut during Issue VII in the main team. Beanbean’s first section was Mario Knowledge a section that had never been featured in The ‘Shroom before, she originally wrote this section with Superchao (talk), however this was only for the first section. She wrote the second section solo, and the third one with Xluidi (talk). Beanbean would write Mario Knowledge a further two times. She would go on to contribute two further sections for the Main Team, both being special sections, and she also submitted a section for Fun Stuff. As well as being a contributor to The 'Shroom, in Issue X, Beanbean became the Editor-in-Chief, although this was only for this issue.

However, you’re not here to learn about the history of Beanbean, you’re here to a view a classic section from issues gone by, so without further ado here is Beanbean’s Trivia section from Issue X.

Hey, this is Beanbean (talk), giving you the ‘Shroom Issue X’s trivia about the Marioverse! Ready? Let’s start!

  1. The Sammer Guy called “The Negative One”’s name is a reference to the Word -1 glitch from Super Mario Bros.
  2. “Noki” translates into “shell” in English, which is what the Nokis wear.
  3. When the Sledge Bros. say “Tag, you’re it” in the ‘’The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3 ‘’ episode Tag Team Trouble, their, mouths don’t move while saying it.
  4. The enemy from ‘’Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island’’ called Piro Dangle looks very similar to another enemy from the Mario series called a Spark from Super Mario Bros. 2.
  5. In the Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3 episode “Reign Storm”, Kooky can be seen at Bowser’s crowning, but he is still supposed to be in Hawaii.
  6. Stop & Go Station, the ninth level of Donkey Kong Country, is the first level the Klaptrap enemies appear in.
  7. Squeaks are the first enemies to appear in ‘’Wario's Woods’’.
  8. ‘’Super Mario Strikers’’ is the first game that Donkey Kong has worn something other than a tie since ‘’Donkey Kong Jr.’’.
  9. After Microsoft bought Rare, Timber’s hat had the Nintendo logo on it. But in the artwork in the Diddy Kong Racing DS manual, the emblem was changed to the Nintendo DS logo.
  10. The Doot-Doot Sisters make a minor cameo each time a cup is won in ‘’Mario Kart: Double Dash!!.
  11. One scene where everyone on the Doomship is dancing in “Do the Koopa” includes many mistakes: Big Mouth dancing but his feet never touch the ground, Hop’s hair appears yellow, Kooky’s whole face is orange, Hip’s hair is blue, and Hop is dancing next to Cheatsy in two of the shots while in the one following he is seen dancing next to his twin brother.
  12. Rockrocs are the only type of Kremlings from ‘’Donkey Kong Country’’ that have never appeared in the Donkey Kong Country Animated Series in any shape or form.
Ok, and that’s all, folks! Thanks for reading! ^-^

Thanks for reading, and I’ll see you next month for another trip back in time.
