*** Recently, Dragon Coins have become "Dagadons".
** "Necro Boom-Boom" for the glitchy Boom-Booms in Mario Adventure [[note]]If there are more than one Boom-Boom on the screen, and one is defeated while the other is flying, the flying Boom-Boom turns into a bizarre glitchy mish-mash of Dry Bones sprites.[[/note]]
