Another one from F-Zero.
Mr. EAD. Look at his belt. His face looks like Mario and EAD means Entertainment Analysis & Development. The same department that makes almost every Nintendo games. The creator of his ship “The Great Star” is Shiggs Mapone, they didn’t even try to hide the reference to Shigeru Miyamoto.
He is also present in the ultimate ending in F-Zero X. To see this ending, you need the 64DD and the Disk Drive Expansion and then win every cup in master mode with all 30 vehicles (thus 180 championships in the highest difficulty). After that, the regular ending on Joker Cup and DD2 Cup isn’t the usual one. It isn’t shown on the video but you can zoom, move and turn Mr. EAD with the pad. It’s been discovered in 2006, 8 years after the release.
Cacildo´s note: 8 years to find a secret. A 64DD is needed and you also have to beat every single cup with all the 30 vehicles. After all that you get a secret ending: MR EAD dancing. Man, if it was me getting through all this, i would be very pissed

Maybe not absolutely mind blowing, but I realized this yesterday, watching Mario Bros by the Gordon College:
In the original Mario Bros, Mario is breaking the blocks not with his head, but with his fist:
However, in SM 64, he doesn’t hesitate to endanger his life :
I dunno when the switch has been done. But trust me Mario, one day you’ll pay the price for crushing your neurons.

Don’t know if anyone else here remembers this from Zelda or not.
The original version of The Great Fairy did NOT look like that creepy cackling ugly …thing.
I had a magazine that had images of the original who was later dubbed Blue Fairy.
Here is a trailer with her in it.
And now a patch that shows she is STILL in the game code.
Also the Dragon in Ocarina of Time was programmed by directly importing an Arwing from starfox into Zelda’s code and editting it. This is also still in Zelda and can be brought out and fought usinga gameshark code.

Matt Cassamina’s head can be found on Perfect Dark on N64, you can play as him or shoot him.
Even Shiggy himself makes an appearance much like Matt except you can actually find Shiggy in the opening cut-scene to Pelagic II wearing something similar to what Mario would wear.
Cacildo´s note: Matt Cassamassina was IGN nintendo editor since the site was called IGN64. “Shiggy” is short for Shigero Myamoto, a person you obviously know. Perfect Dark used ramdom faces for regular grunts in the game, so it always felt strange, to me, that this particulary cutscene had the same face every time. It was a cameo and i bet most people never noticed it, since Myamoto´s face only became kind of popular in the west after internet exploded in the mid-00s

Speaking of Arwings, does everyone know about the Arwing you can fight in OOT with a gameshark? It’s not exactly part of the game, but I didn’t find out about it until a year or two ago
Cacildo´s note: Here´s a nice and small video of this in action
