Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door is the sequel to the original Paper Mario game, which was released for the GameCube. As big as the success was with the previous game, the follow-up is considered to be the best of the spin-off franchise by fans, due to it expanding on what was settled in the original such as bigger maps, improved graphics and details and a brand new post-game quest.
The game has appeared to have undergone a wealth of balance changes and scrapped enemies, along with some unused characters and items that never appear in the final game! There's also a bunch of overlooked and unseen oddities, considering the amount of detail this game had received during development.

Before the release of the Mega Drive/Genesis, Sega wanted to make sure that their new console would sell as well as the NES. To do so, Sega held a competition throughout all of its branches to create a character that would end up replacing Alex Kidd as the mascot of the company.
Eventually, it came down to four designs created by Naoto Ōshima, who had previously worked on the Phantasy Star series.
It was decided that the hedgehog character was the best of the lot, and was redesigned into Sonic the Hedgehog. Some of the other designs were reused later: this fat, pajama-wearing man based on Theodore Roosevelt became the basis for Dr. Eggman/Robotnik's design.
