On April 27th, during the protagonist's date with Saki, one of the places they can go to is a cinema to see a movie, specifically a film version of the game Policenauts. The protagonist struggles to follow the film's plot, and finds more interest in watching Saki watch the film. Afterwards, Saki quizzes the protagonist on various parts of the film's plot that she didn't notice or didn't get. This reference was added most likely because this game runs on Policenauts' engine, and that its creator Hideo Kojima was also this game's director.

Pressing L2 & R2 and L1 & R1 on the title screen will trigger two secret variations of the opening animation.

The second features Lolo running just behind Klonoa, with the sound of her tripping and falling taking the place of Klonoa's "Wahoo!" in the title screen song.

Sonic Frontiers
Once you defeat Spoiler:the Supreme Titan on Easy and Normal difficulties, the game's final boss Spoiler:"The End" will end up being defeated automatically in the final cutscene. However if you defeat Spoiler:the Supreme Titan on Hard difficulty, you will actually have a boss fight with Spoiler:The End before it's defeated in the cutscene.

Both endings are essentially the same except for said boss fight, and the ending song either being "Vandalize" by ONE OK ROCK on Easy or Normal, or "One Way Dream" by Nathan Sharp on Hard.

In rare instances throughout the game, characters that didn't appear in Sonic Frontiers are referenced in passing, such as Cream, Shadow, Rouge, Blaze, Jet, Omega, Yacker the Wisp, and Zavok of the Deadly Six. However two of these voice lines reference Sticks the Badger and Tangle the Lemur, two characters who have not appeared in the mainline game series at all. While Sticks previously had a character page among other mainline characters on the Japanese Sonic Channel website, she has so far only appeared in the spin-off series Sonic Boom, while Tangle has so far only appeared in IDW Publishing's Sonic the Hedgehog comic book series. Thus Sonic's name drop of them in this mainline title essentially establishes the characters as canon to the Sonic game series. This Easter egg may have come about due to the fact that Sonic Frontiers' writer Ian Flynn is also a co-writer of the IDW comic series.
