Possible Future Fix Left & Right = what?

    When playing as these characters:
    Mario, Luigi, Link, Bill
    Try to hold both Left and Right buttons.
    The character will either always have a Slowing Down animation (Mario, Luigi), but not always.
    Or it will "walk" on the same place (Link, Bill). The same for walking in contact with the wall/pipe.
    Also (probably unrelated), if Mega Man or Bass are in contact with the wall/pipe (very close to it), attempting to go further will just move their leg one pixel, and then back (press some times the key which is relative to the wall/pipe's position and you will see).
    Note that it may virtually apply to all characters, but I only said what is visually noticeable.

    Well, NES games (and Game Boy/SNES games, for that matter) are never supposed to have an option to press two directions at once. Doing so on an emulator (or taken-apart controller) can cause all sorts of bugs. For example, in The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, you can press up+down to finish the whole game in just five minutes. Also, in SMBDX, doing that will cause Mario to skid to the right for ever.
    And about MM&B and the pipe, they have a little "step" before they run, just like in the original games. That was not a bug.
    *goes to test L+R in Contra*

    → D-pads. No joystick. o__o

    But yeah, you're lucky pushing both ← and → doesn't do more than that. :p

    Such a simple thing to implement, and console developers never included it.

    Also, when Mario is moonwalking, fireballs shoot at twice the speed.

    I don't blame them... they never had to, because it was never an issue.

    I remember there was a certain Wii hack involving pressing left+right on a wrecked Gamecube controller at a certain time during boot.

    No kidding. It enabled a certain 'factory mode' which would be enabled by a secret device connected to the gamecube port, which luckily, could be replicated by pressing L+R on a broken controller's D-pad.
