In this paper, the terminal falling velocity of the character Mario in Super Smash Bros.

This information is used to calculate a value of gravity g = 0.33 ms^(-2), and a radius of 338 km for the planet, which is used to deduce tectonic activity, a magnetic field and a sea of potentially N2O4 on the planet.
