Super Nintendo World has all sorts of props relating to the Mario series. However, there’s one asset that may have been built by using a fan mod as a reference.

Newer Super Mario Bros. Wii is a mod created without Nintendo’s involvement. Fans developed the project with their own levels, bosses, music, and more. It also has original assets, including a particular type of cactus that has now been spotted at Super Nintendo World – flower and all.

The image included above is a photo taken at the theme park. For reference, here’s what the cactus design looks like in Newer Super Mario Bros. Wii:

Twitter user Meatball132, who shared the news, speculates that this was an innocent mistake:

The two designs do seem extremely similar, though some believe it’s just a generic-looking cactus. Even if they’re the same, it remains to be seen if Super Nintendo World will change up their asset in the future.

Thanks to Jake for the tip.
