Cameos

Kazumi Totaka's Song

Kazumi Totaka's Song

In Mission 4, you have to rescue scientists from alien bases. Whenever you find a fake scientist they appear with their tongue sticking out and thank you. If you wait on this portrait screen for a few moments, a strange tune will play.

This is Kazumi Totaka's Song, a secret track hidden in nearly every game composed by the Nintendo composer. This is the earliest known appearance of the song in any game, predating the better known appearance in Mario Paint by 2 months.

To find out about all the known appearances of the song, check out the Kazumi Totaka's Song Guide.
