Running Man Makes a Secret Cameo

Nintendo is very well known for placing cameos in their games, from the Mario enemies in Link’s Awakening to the sleeping Link and Samus in Super Mario RPG. But there are some cameos that very few people know about. For example, there is a particularly unknown cameo of a certain character from Ocarina of Time, Majora’s Mask, and Twilight Princess which most people have never noticed. Make the jump to see this mind blowing cameo!

Super Mario Sunshine was a great Mario game even for being the oddball of the Mario series. You ran around with your trusty pal FLUDD who helped you clean the graffiti off the island of Delfino. Throughout the game you eventually run into a masked man named Il Piantissimo who wants to race you. Sounds familiar doesn’t it? Well if you hack the game via GameShark you will be given the privilege of taking off Piantissimo’s mask, and the result is nothing short of epic.

Seeing this cameo left me speechless. I was absolutly stunned and my respect for Nintendo shot up somewhere around 9000%. Nintendo is truly spectacular, I mean I truly never thought to myself and said, “This guy reminds me of the running man from the Zelda games.” Cameos and Easter Eggs are what make games more interesting than they already are and now when I see the running man, I will be reminded of Nintendo’s awesomeness. Do you know any more interesting cameos in Zelda games? What do you think of this cameo? Let us know in the comments below!
