This question has been driving me crazy for years now. Anyone seen or heard about this before? When finishing off a Koopa Kid at the end of their ship, the magic wand would fly up into the air and then fall to the floor in the middle of the screen straight up. But I swear I've seen it land on it's side (kind of at a 45 degree angle) a couple of times. Everyone I tell this to says I'm crazy or dreamed it. I've also tried showing people, but the darn thing always lands straight up and down. I've tried several different ways to defeating the Koopa Kids (with fireballs, hammers, Tannookie suit) but can't reproduce this phenomenon. Anyone have an idea?
