Mario & Sonic at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games is another Olympic video game title, this time Mario and Sonic go to the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and in the Wii U version, you take control of your Mii in the city itself as the main menu as you play constantly. Also, a Heroes Showdown mode pivots you in playing as Team Mario or Team Sonic as well as three Duel Events. At least this time they went to an event that actually got to happen on time, which is more than we can say for their 2020 outing together.

Victory Animations

To do:
  • Get either GIFs or videos of Jet, Toad, and Diddy Kong's Gold and Silver/Bronze medal animations.

In-game, Jet, Toad, and Diddy Kong's solo victory screens cannot be seen due to being exclusive to 4-person team events, which do not show the Gold or Silver/Bronze animations during the award ceremony. Because of that, their Gold and Silver/Bronze medal animations can only be seen by using the aforementioned debug menu.

Additionally, each character also has an animation that would play after getting first in an event. The animations that play when getting 2nd/3rd place play after beating a round of a tournament, while the 1st place animations are only used by Miis after getting a medal in a tournament (in the 3DS version however, every character's post-event 1st place animation can be seen). These animations can also only be seen in the debug menu.
