* ShoutOut: World 5-2 is based on the very first ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaI Zelda]]'' game, complete with the iconic "puzzle solved" jingle, since it's that franchise's [[MilestoneCelebration 25th anniversary]]. It gets even better when you realize that since the previous level introduces the BattleBoomerang powerup, you'll probably enter the level armed with a weapon that Link is famous for using.

* EasterEgg: A very similar figure to the infamous Hell Valley Sky Trees from ''VideoGame/SuperMarioGalaxy2'' appears at the end of every ghost house if the players waits for some time near the flagpole. The creepy thing is that unlike the Hell Valley Sky Trees, it appears just behind the fence rather than far away, bears a striking resemblance to [[Franchise/TheSlenderManMythos Slenderman]], and silently ''screams'' at you before it disappears. Another creepy EasterEgg in the same game is a UFO that can be seen if player looks into the binoculars in World 1-3 and quickly looks to the top-right.

''Super Mario 3D Land'' is a 3D [[SuperMarioBros Mario platformer]] that came out in November 2011 for the Nintendo3DS (retail version; as of 2012 the game is available from the Nintendo eShop as well). Unlike earlier 3D Mario games, the style of ''3D Land'' is essentially a blend between 2D and 3D Mario: Many elements, from linear level structure to Super Mushroom-based health to old-school power-ups like the Tanooki Suit, have been implemented into the 3D games for the first time. It's best described by Creator/ShigeruMiyamoto [[WordOfGod himself]] as "...more like a 3D Mario that plays like a 2D Mario game."
