* The ending theme for the ''Revenge of Meta Knight'' subgame in ''VideoGame/KirbySuperStar'' is a blatant parody of The Animals' rendition of "House of the Rising Sun". The Japanese name of this song even translates to "Friends and the Setting Sun".
** And the Game Over screen sounds quite similar to the chorus of Queen's "You're My Best Friend".

** The recurring Gourmet Race theme that makes its debut here is almost, but not quite, Hermann Necke's "Csikós Post", which is often played during sporting or racing events in Japanese media.

The other major recurring theme from "Ideal" sounds similar to [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KR0UjAQIX6E "Bloodlines"]] from ''VideoGame/CastlevaniaRondoOfBlood''. The theme to [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tNgeKGX6Fuk Chapter 3]] is a sound-a-like of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JbJbYFyklTg Hyrule Castle]].
