There's a curious connection between Super Mario Bros. 2 and The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening. Two characters in the games are actually the same; Mamu in Link's Awakening and Wart in Mario 2. It should be noted that Wart's Japanese name in Mario 2 is Mamu. Both games are revealed to be dream worlds at the end, with Mario 2 taking place in Subcon (short for subconscious) and Link's Awakening taking place on an island created by the Wind Fish's dreaming.
