  • Donkey Kong and Vector are rivals in these games. What are the main enemies in the first three Donkey Kong Country games? The Kremlings, which are crocodiles just like Vector.
  • Why does Sonic simply not reach the finish line within seconds? He's only running at a fraction of his top speed so that everyone else has a chance of winning.
  • Bowser Jr. and Metal Sonic, who both became playable in Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games, have a few parallels.
  • The other two additional characters, Donkey Kong and Silver, share types with their respective franchise's antagonists.
  • The two Dream Events in Tokyo 2020 are based not only on Olympic Events, but also their home series. The Dream Racing event in Metropolis is Skateboarding meets Sonic Riders, while the Dream Karate in the Mushroom Kingdom is Karate meets Mario Party.
