*Diddy Kong's title "Hey Little Buddy!": Something DK has been known to refer to Diddy as in the Donkey Kong Country TV Show, which has also been used in some of the games as well:

I've now decided to post about this after all, of which is now as we speak currently in my Pending Submissions queue, assuming noone else has such a submission about Ultimate's Classic Mode titles in their own Pending Submissions queue already.

Seeing as a place that actually lists the Classic Mode titles in Ultimate might also be needed to help this sound more convincing, I've decided it would be a good idea to place this in as well from a place that's not one of the forbidden sources: https://www.elecspo.com/games/super-smas...d-by-leaks

There's also this, which is a playlist of all the fighters' Classic Mode playthroughs in Ultimate: http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLh...voVXmVH60z

If it be wise to also include some of these fighters taking on Classic Mode as well to help get an understanding of some stuff I mentioned, here are those with titles that reference the opponents faced:

It seems as if GameXplain has started doing videos talking about each fighter's classic mode. I still wish to use this trivia evidence piece though for good reasons when it comes to making such a submission about Classic Mode title references in Ultimate.

As stated before, I'll be adding in DLC Fighters to this Trivia Evidence piece that still hasn't been approved of if any of their classic mode titles contain references/easter eggs to something, which has recently applied to Piranha Plant:

It's classic mode title "New Bloom" seems to reference how Piranha Plant is one of the new fighters in the game, and that each of it's opponents are the other Newcomers (except for those DLC Fighters arriving after Piranha Plant).

Any questions about my mentionings in this Trivia Evidence piece or mentionings of things I forgot to mention, feel free to leave a reply about them. I mean if this trivia does not get accepted it would atleast be worth posting a reply explaining what it could use to get accepted, I'm always happy to keep searching the internet for easter eggs like these.

Based on how these quoted previous threads to the Trivia Evidence pieces are causing the page to barely load, I decided to take them out, so nothing will have to be read of more then once. The thing is when replying to threads on the form for more info, they leave a previous thread in a quote box, which I'm sure has a good reason to be there.

This is supposed to be a Trivia Evidence piece for the Classic Mode titles in Ultimate that contain easter eggs and references, of which needed to sound convincing, videos were required, what else was I supposed to've gone with?: https://www.vgfacts.com/forums/thread-4411.html

Either way I spoke with fellow VGFacts Contributors like Zpacej0k about this, posting a Trivia Evidence piece about all the Classic Mode titles in Ultimate that contain easter eggs and references is no different from a Trivia Evidence piece that's about the Boxing Ring titles that contain easter eggs and references, of which got accepted on VGFacts fine: https://www.vgfacts.com/forums/thread-21...oxing+Ring
