** Actually uses as a plot point: in [[Recap/DoctorWhoS29E10Blink "Blink"]], the Doctor hides a message for the future in Easter Eggs in 17 unrelated {{DVD}}s. Appropriately, the message became a real-life Easter Egg on the Series 3 boxset.

* The cover art for ''Literature/TheHitchhikersGuideToTheGalaxy'' books contains an odd and seemingly out of place 7 by 6 grid of spheres. It was a [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phrases_from_The_Hitchhiker%27s_Guide_to_the_Galaxy#42_Puzzle puzzle]] created by author Creator/DouglasAdams in response to fans attempts to find significance and hidden meaning in the work. It went completely ignored until he finally revealed that the number 42 was the answer to 6 different questions about the grid.

* ''Film/{{Elysium}}'': Look very closely during the final montage of the joyous citizens of Earth welcoming the medical shuttles. There's a blink and you'll miss it shot of Johannesburg... with the alien ship from District9 still hovering over it.

** Speaking of Music/{{Rush}}, the intro to the song "YYZ" is the same rhythm as the Morse code for the actual letters YYZ.

* In [[UsefulNotes/{{UNIX}} Arch Linux and its derivatives]], it's possible to enable a VideoGame/PacMan progress bar instead of the default one with hashes (as they use the Pacman '''pac'''kage '''man'''ager).

** Also, Act III Scene XIII gives us Cyrano trying (and managing) to delay Count de Guiche in order to allow Roxanne and Christian's wedding to proceed. The way he does it - disguising himself, climbing up on a tree and falling at the Count's feet, then pretending to come directly from the Moon and finally detailing the many ways to climb up to the moon from the Earth - seems like some funny, tongue-in-cheek moment from Rostand, almost a BigLippedAlligatorMoment... Until you remember that the play is loosely based on the life of the [[HistoricalDomainCharacter real Cyrano de Bergerac]], who, among his plays and scientific studies, happened to write something called ''Comical History of the States and Empires of the Moon and the Sun''.

* ''Creator/{{Mattel}}'' did a easter egg in their ''[[Franchise/AmericanGirlsCollection American Girl]]'' magazines. In one of the "The World According to Aggie" comic strips, there is a hidden message written by a 11-year-old girl in Toledo, Ohio (known as "Hannah C.") which said "Follow Your Inner Star" (the official tagline of the product brand), along with the official A (Star) G logo (as these are written in invisible white ink) on one of the visible comic panels [[spoiler:because you need a flashlight to see the tagline and logo during the evening]].

Originally, "Easter Eggs" was the term for little bits of stuff programmers left behind in the software. They're secrets, intended to tickle the fancy of those who discover them. Programs far too numerous to mention have included Easter eggs -- everything from Microsoft Office to ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAuto: [[VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoSanAndreas San Andreas]]''.

The first Easter Eggs were inserted by programmers for companies whose policy forbade them from receiving individual credit for their work. The earliest Easter Eggs were mostly credits pages, possibly to allow the programmers themselves to prove authorship to friends. For security reasons (and concerns about malicious programmers inserting undocumented and destructive code), most companies don't allow Easter Eggs to appear in their software any more, but as individual programmers now receive full credit for their work, it's a moot point.

An article on why Easter Eggs exist (focusing on ''TabletopGame/MagicTheGathering'', but applicable to all games) is available [[https://web.archive.org/web/20071017003006/http://wizards.com:80/default.asp?x=mtgcom/daily/mr257 here]].

Some Easter Eggs can be found with a RocketJump or a well-timed DoubleJump. You can also find some if you use the bunny hop trick. [[labelnote:.]]See? Here's an example of one! Why did you click this anyway? Maybe you should look at the above quote...[[/labelnote]]
