[[WMG: Ghost Clock is the watch company that produces from the [[VideoGame/LuigisMansionDarkMoon Old Clockworks]].]]
After the Dark Moon fiasco, the residents of Evershade Valley built the old factory back up to the point they could start mass producing and advertising to the rest of the world. Naturally, they have their sponsor ad placed in a haunted mansion style track.


To try and get her competition out of the way permanently, she transformed Rosalina into [[TheScrappy Baby Rosalina]], to ensure that Nintendo would never choose to include her in another game, as per the fans' reactions to her. (And so that, being a baby, Rosie wouldn't be cognitive enough to recognize what had happened or communicate it to anyone else if she did.) This is why "Rosalina" in this game sounds like Princess Peach doing a poor Rosalina impression, and why Pauline was subsequently given a larger role in ''VideoGame/SuperMarioOdyssey.''

[[WMG: Rosalina is actually Pauline in disguise.]]
Pauline felt jealous over all the attention the new female characters were getting so, taking a page from [[Disney/WreckItRalph Turbo's]] book, she hacked the code of Mario Kart 8 while the game was still in development, where she managed to alter Rosalina's code and replace it with her own.

[[WMG: There will be ''Disney/WreckItRalph'' DLC to promote ''Wreck-It Ralph 2''.]]
* Mario is set to be a major character in ''Wreck-It Ralph 2'', and they already did a similar thing with Ralph in ''[[VideoGame/SegaSuperstars Sonic and All-Stars Racing Transformed]]''. New characters will include Ralph, Vanellope, and another Mario character variant. There will be a one-lap race track based off of Sugar Rush and a battle course based off of Fix-It Felix, Jr. The release date will coincide with the release of ''Wreck-It Ralph 2''.

Think about it: aside from [[{{VideoGame/F-Zero}} the obvious]], what do Mute City and Big Blue have in common? Both have been made into stages for VideoGame/SuperSmashBros. Port Town Aero Drive would be a logical follow up.

** Wouldn't that be a little...out of place in a Mario game? Even when you consider the crossover stages?

[[WMG: The Lunar Colony is based on the [[VideoGame/PaperMarioTheThousandYearDoor X-Naut Fortress]].]]
* This might be a stretch, but they do have similarities, mostly in that they're both highly advanced structures on the moon.

Added DiffLines:


[[WMG: There will be a fictionalized UsefulNotes/NaziGermany stage.]]
* Since there is a DLC kart based on a Nazi-era race car, why not?
