In Tales of Symphonia, immediately after the animated cutscene that commences after you fight Luna and Aska, there is a short in-engine cutscene featuring the denizens of several Tethe'alla cities running around startled by the commotion. In Sybak, you can see a dog that is flitting about the square in confusion. However, you can also see in the same cutscene that same dog still sitting in front of the inn. There is an extra dog here. The extra dog is never seen again before or since.

Well it looks identical to the Pepe from the Balacruf Mausoleum which gets destroyed at a point so no one can prove that this dog isn’t just an escaped Pepe.

This Twitter account is basically dedicated lately to lost, rejected, or evolving pokemon designs. Some really interesting stuff being unearthed, like this originally planned stage 1 of the Zubat line.

The descriptions for the accessories in Super Mario RPG are terrible at explaining what the items actually do. One can play through the game multiple times without ever realizing that:
  • The Amulet and B'tub Ring halve elemental damage.
  • The Safety Badge prevents all status ailments. (The description only says "Prevents Mute & Poison attacks", which is technically true.)
  • The Attack Scarf and Jinx Belt prevent instant death attacks.
  • The Safety Ring nullifies elemental damage, prevents all status ailments, and prevents instant death attacks.
  • The Troopa Pin gives you the Attack Up status (same as the Energizer/Power Blast items, or Geno Boost) at the beginning of every battle.
  • The Ghost Medal gives you the Defense Up status (same as the Bracer/Crystalline items, or a timed Geno Boost) at the beginning of every battle.
  • The Quartz Charm gives you the Attack Up and Defense Up statuses at the beginning of every battle, and prevents instant death attacks.
The Lazy Shell and Super Suit also nullify elemental damage and prevent status ailments.

In the original Japanese version of Super Mario RPG, Midas River is named "Wine River". Hence all the barrels.
