Super Mario OdysseyEdit

Origin: Japan
Studio(s): Nintendo
  • If the player tries to scan any of the Drillimation Amiibo into the game, it will simply not scan and give a humorous message mentioning the character's personality. The following list below is a list of messages that appear:
    • Susumu Hori - What's this? I don't think I have seen that pluckly driller who sounds nearly like Mario.
    • Wataru Hoshi - What's this? I don't think I have seen this astronaut who sounds like Luigi. C'mon, let's cross the stars!
    • Konata Izumi - What's this? I don't think I have seen this blue-haired lottie - who just looks like Princess Peach, in terms of her outfit. Wait a minute, wrong one.
    • Leopold Slikk - What's this? We've never seen this hacker who pounds keyboards and hacks into computers.
    • James Rolfe - What's this? An angry nerd? That reminds me, we need to replay some of the past.
    • Susumu Takajima - What's this? The president of another gaming world? Man, wonder how he's doing.
    • Kagami Ochiai - What's this? A rainbow-haired girl who loves to sing? I hear that she now has blue and purple hair - or perhaps a queen I may say!
    • Reimu Hakurei - What's this? I don't think we've seen this shaman from centuries past. I haven't played that game in years - wonder how my reflexes are doing?
    • Marisa Kirisame - What's this? A witch from the same time period? Sure, she can give Mario stars, but they're probably dangerous, as much as a bright beam.

Wario: Master of DisguiseEdit

Origin: Japan
Studio(s): Suzak, Nintendo
  • Terrormisu's human form has her wearing nearly the exact same gown worn by Konata in the anime, with the exception of her long yellow gloves.
