Welcome to the former forums for DidYouKnowGaming?! In March of 2013, VGFacts was launched and this community was merged into the new forums there. These forums were originally taken offline at that time but I brought them back as an archive while transferring sites to the new server. Registrations and all interaction (posting, editing, moderation, etc.) are disabled but everything can still be read. If you're interested in joining the community, head on over to https://www.vgfacts.com/forums/ and join there but I've always thought it was important to preserve a site's roots so these forums will forever be available in this read-only state.

Secret "Anti-Super Nintendo" Screen in Trouble Shooter/Battle Mania
In JPN version of Vic Tokai's Battle Mania (known as Trouble Shooters in US) for Genesis, if one holds the C button on Controller 2 while the game's started up, it displays the protagonist Madison stomping furiously on a console which closely resembles an SNES.

The story goes that the director/producer was annoyed that the budget and team members he needed for this game were mostly taken by another in-house project for the SFC/SNES and thus got his own back by putting this little gem into the game.
The upshot of this was that Sega sent a fax to all its developers warning them not to deface other companies' characters or trademarks in their games.

Also an animation to show this from close:

This one seems pretty legit. Worthy of a DYK post.
