Interesting way to use Megaphone Card

Recently a tweet surfaced in which a Twitter user @Pedri64_ accidentally speaks in his Wii U gamepad mic. In the tweet, Megaphone Card picks up his voice to replicate in the game to play it even louder. On further research into this, we found out that, talking on the gamepad mic amplifies the input soundturning a whisper into a shout, and a shout into an explosion of noise“.

Not just it increases the damage but it also changes the animation from using the Megaphone card the normal way. If this is performed, the Megaphone will play your input sound as it spins constantly. At last, it blows away your foe with a loud sound wave. In this case, Mario looks at the camera and gives you a thumbs-up instead of shrugging.

Tip: You need to shout/scream/blow into the game mic as soon as it starts playing rock music.
