Tony Hawk's Underground 2
Attachment
Within the debug menu of T.H.U.G 2, there is an option to instantly grant the player a score of five million points.

When this debug function is activated, the text near the bottom of the screen in which the name of a trick performed during a combo would appear, instead the phrase, "You cheat like Kurt" fills in.

References to "Kurt" are a running inside joke within Neversoft, with numerous respective instances occurring in both Tony Hawk's Underground 1 as well as Underground 2 as Easter Eggs.

Gex
There is a secret portal located towards the upper-left corner of the level "The Project". Going in it will take Gex to a hidden room with a unique enemy blocking an exit to the level; a random man walking towards Gex. Hitting the man will cause him to vomit, and his kill animation shows large amounts of blood shooting out of his neck before dying. It's unknown who this person is, though it could be a self-insert by one of the game's developers.

Minecraft
Attachment
While the Evoker Illager is not engaged in combat and "/gamerule mobGriefing" is set to "true", it can change the color of the wool of any blue sheep within 16 blocks to red. It signals the spell by producing orange particles and making a "wololo" sound. This is a reference to the Priest special unit in Age of Empires who after making that sound can turn enemy units into friendly units, thereby changing that unit's color. Mojang's developers first noticed the similarities between the Priest and the Evoker in the latter's spell-casting animation when it holds up its arms, and because Age of Empires and Minecraft were both owned by Microsoft, they were able to use the same "wololo" audio clip from Age of Empires for the Evoker in Minecraft.

Rock Band 2
Attachment
In the "Game Modifiers" menu, one of the cheat options is called "Awesomeness Detection". Its description states that it "Lets Harmonix know that you are awesome!", and Harmonix claimed that high-level players should play the game with this option turned on without actually revealing what it does, causing confused players to speculate on what it did. The Official Harmonix Podcast confessed in their 11th episode on February 26, 2010 that it did nothing.

Uncharted 4: A Thief's End
Attachment
Neil Druckmann snuck in several easter eggs which directly referenced The Secret of Monkey Island, including the likeness of its main protagonist Guybrush Threepwood. Naughty Dog later received permission from The Walt Disney Company to leave these references in the game.

In Chapter 11, a slightly burned portrait resembling Guybrush can be found that Nathan and Sam will comment on, not recognizing him among the other pirate founders of Libertalia they do know. This is hinted at further during the sigils puzzle in the same chapter, one of which is that of a monkey. A statue of the Guybrush figure can be found among statues of the founders during Chapter 12, with Nathan again conveniently forgetting his name. Spoiler:A more intact version of the painting can be found later in Chapter 15, but with the word "THIEF" painted overtop its subject as are the rest of the portraits found near it, and a barely legible plaque underneath revealing his name to be "Guy Wood". In Chapter 18 while in Thomas Tew's mansion, Nathan and Elena stumble upon a dinner table surrounded by the corpses of the founders. Guy Wood's corpse appears among the rest, with a monkey sigil found close to him on the table.

Two more references to The Secret of Monkey Island can be found in the game's dialogue, including one moment where Nathan comments "That is the second biggest cistern I've ever seen." This references a running gag from the series where Guybrush would commonly remark that something is the second biggest version of that thing that he's seen. The second piece of dialogue refers to Monkey Island itself with the line "Big, skull-shaped island? What?"

Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic
In the Xbox version of the game, by connecting a first-generation controller (A.K.A. "The Duke" controller) into the fourth port on an original Xbox console, the pitch and speed of all dialogue in the game can be shifted higher and faster using the White action button, and lower and slower using the Black action button.

Mischief Makers
Attachment
When you first start up the game, it asks for an age between 00 and 99. Spoiler:This age choice does not refer to the player, but to the main protagonist Marina Liteyears, and has an effect on one frame in the true ending of the game. If Marina's age is set to 15 years or younger, her true human form will be physically closer to that of a child. If her age is set to 16 years or older, her true human form will be closer to that of an adult.

Sonic Adventure 2
Attachment
At the start of the Dark Story when Dr. Eggman releases Shadow, a message can be seen on the edge of the pit where Shadow was held that reads:

"ASTRONOMERS ARE CONCLUDING THAT MONSTROUSBLACKS"


This message could be an early or unrealized hint at the existence of the Black Arms, the antagonists of the spin-off game Shadow the Hedgehog, or something similar that went unused in Sonic Adventure 2.

Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty
During the Tanker mission, if Snake saves his game, Otacon will try to recite proverbs like Mei Ling in Metal Gear Solid, except he will always mess them up. If you save your game and listen to Otacon's increasingly disjointed advice 13 times, a final codec call will be shown where in the middle of Otacon reciting a proverb, Mei Ling will enter the call via an audio-only transmission and interrupt him, try to correct him with a misplaced "cheat sheet" she made for him, and then scold him for losing the sheet and butchering proverbs with his own interpretations. Mei Ling will then tell Snake the correct meaning of the proverb, tell Otacon they have unfinished business, and leave the call. This is Mei Ling's only appearance in the game.

Minecraft
Attachment
One of the random title screen splash messages "Woo, /v/!", a reference to the dedicated video game imageboard "/v/" on website 4chan, was removed from the PC Java version of the game in update ver.1.17 released in 2021. It's unknown why it was removed, neither was it mentioned in the game's official patch notes, but it's presumably due to the controversial nature of the website which Microsoft may wish to distance themselves from.

During the game's early years, the game's creator Markus "Notch" Persson had heavily promoted the game on a number of websites including 4chan, which its success he partly attributed to the website.

Kingdom Hearts III
When using the Classic Tone keyblade's Shotlock, Sora actually turns into the same exact cartoony monochrome form that he had donned when he was in the retro Timeless River world in Kingdom Hearts II. In addition, the 'portals' he comes out of and goes into during the Shotlock are extremely similar to the doorways that lead to different areas of the world that are used by the characters in Timeless River's story.

During a scene with the character Demyx, he spouts the line "Yes, Demyx time!" This may be a reference to the web-series "Demyx Time", which released in the late 2000's and followed a cosplayer dressed as Demyx going over Demyx's daily life and events inside Organization XIII.

Kingdom Hearts III
The team behind Square Enix's Einhander helped develop the expansive Gummi Ship aspect of Kingdom Hearts III. They even included references to Einhander, including an unlockable Gummi Blueprint obtained by scanning a constellation in the Misty Stream area that greatly resembles Einhander' Endymion ship. One of Einhander's bosses, the Schwarzgeist, also cameos as a boss in Kingdom Hearts III, and a remix of Einhander 'Thermosphere' plays when the boss is fought with most Gummi ships. However, if the boss is fought with the Endymion blueprint, then the original PlayStation 1 version of the Thermosphere theme will play.
