"There are two "overworld" themes in MOTHER: "Pollyanna," which plays when Ninten travels alone, and "Bein' Friends," which plays when he's in a group. When Ninten leaves the graveyard with Pippi, "Bein' Friends" plays for the first time. Once he drops her off and steps out into the street by himself, the tune reverts to the slower, somewhat less cheerful "Pollyanna," contributing an added weight of significance to Ninten's resumed solitude − a weight that would have been absent without this relatively minor detail."
"Chun-Li has been dressed in a Player-2 Palette Swap of her video game outfit (or, you know, close enough), and starts recounting her origin story while Bison walks in and changes behind a screen, next to a hatrack featuring his Evil Dictator chapeau in various style.

If only anything else in the movie similarly seemed to wink at video-game-savvy viewers."
