If you ask someone what the most striking and memorable thing about The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask is, they’d probably answer with the whole three-day cycle gimmick, Link’s many transformations or the creepy moon. But if you held a gun to their head and whispered “it’s Tingle” into their ear, they’d undoubtedly say it was this charming fellow. The life and legacy of Tingle isn’t extensively documented and leaves many unexplored questions. Is he human? Is he a fairy? Is he an offensive gay stereotype? But despite his mysterious nature, Tingle is a crucial character to the development of the Legend of Zelda series. In fact, there are no less than four different games out there with Tingle’s name in the title, which makes him just as important to the franchise as Link, whose name usually only appears as part of a lame pun. Just as the tale of the Hero of Time and the Triforce is constantly being retold, so too is the story of this unsung legend.

Well, this is certainly something! A NicoNico user going by the name “Wakou” has used the program Audio Pad to control Mario with sound. That makes him able to play Super Mario World with just his noise and a recorder.

Wakou uses the following commands to control Mario:

“Do” – up
“Mi” – down
“Re” – left
“Fa” – right
“Sol” – b utton
“Ti” – y button

Super Smash Bros. fans have come up with a new mini-game called “Falcon Potato”. It’s done with three players in Special Smash with a higher launch rate and timers-only. Two play as Mario (or Dr. Mario), and another plays as Captain Falcon.

After the match begins, you slow down time with an item, and start a Falcon Punch. The Mario players then use their “Cape” move to redirect the punch until someone gets hit.
