At the end of the third episode of Sirena Beach in Super Mario Sunshine, Mario and Yoshi must get into the pool area of Hotel Delfino by performing a Ground Pound to smash through a cracked tile in the vents above.
After they fall from the ceiling into the pool, if the camera is rotated around to view Mario’s face, it is revealed that the “eyes open” and “eyes closed” frames of his blinking animation have changed places. Instead of having them mostly open and occasionally blinking, Mario’s eyes are mostly closed and occasionally open for a moment. This lasts for as long as Mario and Yoshi do not perform any movement other than walking or jumping, and can as such even be seen in the Shine Sprite collection cutscene.
