* The WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic FanFic [[http://www.fimfiction.net/story/152876/a-glimmer-of-hope-in-the-black A Glimmer of Hope in the Black]] has several. The most prominent one being invisible text at the end of the story that can only be seen by highlighting it with your mouse. The text itself is gibberish and must first be run through a cipher to reveal a message from a character who has apparently broken free from the virus and is trying to alert the reader of a new plan to stop it from spreading.

Originally, "Easter Eggs" was the term for the 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 {{Nintendo 64}} version of the game has a lot of funny lines in the skippable intro. One of them, ''"Clan Warsong is da bom"'', is an obvious reference to ''VideoGame/{{Warcraft}} II''.

* The music player program on the Nintendo [=DSi=] and the Nintendo3DS has various sound effects you can play with the L and R buttons and one of them is the iconic coin sound from ''VideoGame/SuperMarioBros''.

** The CD version of ''Off The Deep End'' has ten minutes of silence after the song You Don't Love Me Anymore, followed by screaming. Al admitted he did it to troll anyone listening and forgot to turn off their CD player.
** If ''Running With Scissors'' is played on a computer, you can go into the CD and watch an condensed version of his 1996 going home special for the Disney Channel.

* In Season 2 of ''Series/{{Castle}}'', the episode "[[HalloweenEpisode Vampire Weekend]]" has a few {{Shout Out}}s to {{Series/Firefly}}, the television series that made NathanFillion famous.
** The easiest one to spot is the opening scene. [[NathanFillion Castle]] dons his old Browncoat for a Halloween Costume. HilarityEnsues when his daughter [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Q3pdj9p6yI spots him.]]

** One mission in Jak 2 involves Jak fighting Krimzon Guards who launch explosives out of their blasters. If you look closely, the projectiles look just like the precursor explosive that knocked Daxter into the pool of dark eco in the first game.

* The {{webcomic}} ''{{Narbonic}}'' has an entirely separate text story, written in two-word segments, hidden in the filenames of each strip (of all places). The story continues into the DirectorsCut version.

** The community-made campaign Suicide Blitz 2, while fan-made, deserves special mention due to having an amazing and well hidden Easter Egg. There's a garden gnome in the first leg of the mission, holding it prevents you from using any weapons or items and using it for melee attacks does partial damage. If you carry it to the last leg of the mission, you can place it in an alcove in an out-of-the-way room to gain access to an [[VideoGame/{{Portal2}} Aperture Laboratories testing facility]].
