I'm probably slow, but...

Okay, so I might be the last person in the world to notice the similarity between The Legend of Zelda's recorder and Super Mario Bros. 3 whistle, but today I finally realized that they are the same basic item.



Despite their small differences in appearance, they both play the same tune, and they both summon a whirlwind that transports the character to a different location.  But like I said before, I might be the slowest person in the world (betting Captain Obvious and Slowpoke beat me as well), but I thought I'd share this bit of info for other slow gamers out there.

  3. They made the whistle in SM3 as a tongue-in-cheek joke from Zelda. The programmers said "MAGIC WHISTLE!" and they all groaned...

  8. It could mean that Mario world and Zelda world are one and the same, just different parts of their history.

  9. I guess it makes sense. Back then when memory was very limited you tend to reuse a lot of code. In that vein, in Mario Bros. the trees in the background are just clouds painted a different color.

  10. The Rod of Seasons in Oracle of Seasons look like the kings' scepters in SMB 3.
