In Professor Layton, when completing a puzzle, you can actually know whether you’re correct or not a moment before Layton or the boy says so. They flash closer to the screen three times, with “Correct” or “Incorrect” appearing the final time, but before that, they’ll either have a little grin or a little frown on their face, so that you know what’s coming.
I played through the entire game twice and never noticed this. My wife played for like ~20 minutes, and it’s one of the first comments she made.

I thought this was the most obvious thing in the world, but then I was playing the game with my girlfriend the other day and I’d comment “yes!” or “nooo!” just before the correct/incorrect came up, and she asked, “how’d you know??”
I guess it’s not common knowledge after all :lol

Nothing big or mind blowing, but it’s the only thing of interest I can think of right now:
The DS startup sound changes on your birthday.

That scared the shit out of me when it first happened with my now retired Phat. I turned it off and on again thinking there was something wrong and some minutes passed before I realized what was up, the poor thing was just trying to congratulate me.

There are tons in the Phoenix Wright series:
Luke Atmey (Look at me)
Phoenix Wright (Thinks he’s right)
Wendy Oldbag (Windy Old bag)
Will Powers (Will Power)
Dustin Prince (Dust in prints)
There are many more that I can’t think of at the moment, but they’re fun.

I just posted this in the “Lego”-Thread, but I think it fits even better in this Thread:
“Animal Crossing” is a blatant rip-off of Lego’s “Fabuland”:
Cacildo´s note: Well, its obviously not a “blatant rip-off” but they do share some funny similarities.
