* EasterEgg: Many, but the most famous is a plug for ''SpaceQuest.'' The parser also accepts some raunchy input for those who are inclined. Considering [[VideoGame/LeisureSuitLarry Al Lowe]] worked on this game, this isn't that big of a surprise.

''King's Quest II: Romancing the Throne'' is the second game in the ''VideoGame/KingsQuest'' AdventureGame series. Graham, now king of Daventry, has recently come to a realization; without a proper queen by his side to produce potential heirs, his reign as king will be quite short. The MagicMirror he retrieved from the first game reflects an image a beautiful maiden from the land of Kolyma named Valanice, who is trapped in a stone tower by the evil witch Hagatha. Graham dons his adventurer's cap once more and resolves to rescue her. Along the way he must find three keys to access the land of Kolyma, help King Neptune, and kill Count Dracula before he can reach the island Valanice is trapped on.

** The Official Book of King's Quest points out; If you know mythology, you'll probably know what to do with the snake and a bridle... It further explains, that the reader might ask what kind of nonsense is this (thinking it odd); however, readers of Greek mythology would know that a winged horse, named Pegasus, sprang fully grown from the head of Medusa (a babe with snakes for hair) when she was slain. So there is a link between winged horses and snakes. The King's Quest Companion, 2nd Edition gives two explanations that "Graham 'accidentally' threw the bridle" while trying to use his sword (this a joke back at a similar situation in the KQ1 novel where he accidently throws a bucket of water at a dragon, when attempting to use a knife). The second explanation discusses the history and inspiration behind the puzzle Pegasus was born from Medusa, and Bellerophon was given a magic bridle by Athena in order to ride Pegasus.

* LastNoteHilarity: For the sillier deaths, you'll get the usual "funeral march" music, except the last note is replaced with a lighthearted comedic ditty.
