Hotel Mario
The music used in the game's opening cutscene, main menu/map screen, and end credits is taken almost note-for-note from Max Steiner's "Polka Melody", featured in the 1933 film adaptation of the novel "Little Women".

A secret message can be found on the title screen of the NES version of the game with the use of two controllers. At the title screen, select "CONSTRUCTION" on the menu. Press Start on Controller 1 to enter the mode, then press it again to return back to the title screen. Repeat this seven times. After the seventh enter-and-exit, hold Down on Controller 1 and press A eight times on Controller 2. Then, hold Right on Controller 1 and press B twelve times on Controller 2. Finally, press Start on Controller 1 to activate the message featuring an animation of a green droplet falling.

"THIS PROGRAM WAS
WRITTEN BY
OPEN-REACH
WHO LOVES NORIKO
....."

The most likely person as to the identity of "Open-Reach" is Tomcat System's founder and programmer Ryoichi Ookubo because of the similarities between "Reach" and "Ryoichi". It should be also noted that his name is hidden twice in the game's ROM, and from one fact pointed out by a Russian LiveJournal user, that the name Open-Reach appears as "OPR" on the title screen of another game Tomcat System developed, the 1991 Famicom game Castle Quest published by Hudson Soft.

As for Noriko, her identity remains unknown. In the comments section of the sourced video, one commenter claimed that Noriko was Ookubo's daughter who was three years old at the time of the game's development, while the aforementioned LiveJournal user claimed that Noriko was a romantic partner, claiming her to be a former Namco graphic designer named Noriko Ikegawa (whose name would later appear in the credits for the Nintendo game Animal Crossing as a model designer), but there is no substantial evidence to support either of these claims.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 3
Attachment
In the spawn area of the Zombies map "Der Eisendrache", there is a complicated Easter egg first discovered in 2019 that can be executed. When you spawn in, do not open any doors and allow the Zombies to break down the five barriers in the spawn area and enter the map. Once most or all of the Zombies are in the map, kill them for points. This should be done by the start of Round 2 and it is important to leave one or two Zombies alive and roaming the map so that you do not progress to Round 3. Once Round 2 starts, you need to go to every barrier and attach exactly two boards to each one, then go purchase the RK5 pistol. Next, you need to go back to every barrier and add two more boards to each for a total of four boards on each barrier, then go purchase the Shieva assault rifle, replacing the RK5. After that, you need to go back to every barrier one more time to attach one more board to each for a total of five boards on each barrier, then go and purchase the RK5 again replacing the Shieva. From the moment you purchase the RK5 again, you need to race to the fenced-off door to the east of where you first spawned in in under five seconds. If you get there in time, you can walk out onto the deck and find a heart-shaped arch spinning on a platform in mid-air. Inside that arch is a picture of developer Drew Marlowe and his family.

Pitting the Wrexham AFC against either the Liverpool or Stockport football clubs will trigger hidden commentary between actors Ryan Reynolds and Robb McElhenney, who in November 2020, bought the Wrexham football club for £2m ($2.5M) due to British comedian and writer Humphrey Ker explaining to the BBC how his lunch habits led to McElhenney having an interest in the sport:

"I'm laying claim to the fact (Rob's) interest in football derives from several years of teasing me for watching football during our lunch breaks at work. Until eventually, just by pure osmosis, I got him interested in the game to the degree that he decides to buy a football team. Where with a lot of people the journey would have ended with he and I exchanging text messages and me saying 'Ha ha, sounds great, I'd always said I'd do that if I won the lottery, but then within a month's time we had Ryan on board, we had found a football brokerage team in New York and we were in the process of trying to find a football club."

Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3
In the PSP version of the game, players can talk to an NPC at Club Escapade at night simply called "Man Drinking Alone". If you talk to him, he'll tell you about a dream where people die if they don't wake up before they reach the bottom. If you talk to him enough times, he'll turn around to reveal himself to be Vincent from Catherine.

When the player's character leaves their house for the first time, they will get assaulted by two thugs. One of them says "I need your clothes, your boots, and your motorcycle!". This is a reference to the 1991 film Terminator 2, where Arnold Schwarzenegger says that to one of the biker gang menbers.

In the King's Mausoleum, there is a very dark room you can go to that has several stone faces hanging from the ceiling, and a stone pedestal in the center of the room that can be set on fire to brighten it (to better hear this Easter egg, you should not light it, and turn off the music). If you stand in front of the pedestal, several distorted voices can be heard throughout the room. Reversing them reveals that they are actually audio clips of the Radio Operators from the English dub of Armored Core 2: Another Age.

In the Seraphic Gate, there is an optional boss fight with Spoiler:Brahms featuring a fourth-wall breaking message from an unknown developer on the game before the fight when talking to him:

"...While this game was being developed, I gleefully told another person on the team that once this game was finished, I was going to join another company that had made me an offer. I could tell my words stung him deeply in his heart.

The reason I am here today is to show my gratitude and regret to that good man.

Forget everything. Try and fight me! Yessss!!"

The game's first PlayStation release came bundled with a bonus disc containing "Making of Lunar: Silver Star Story Complete", a 30 minute documentary on the development and localization of the game. At any time the documentary is playing, pressing Up/Down/Left/Right/Triangle/Start will trigger a secret minigame produced by Timon Marmex Trzepacz from the game's North American publisher Working Designs. The game, titled "Lords of Lunar: Silver Star Story", is a clone of the 1980 Atari arcade game Warlords that can be played with up to 8 players through two PlayStation Multitaps.

Street Fighter III
Attachment
There's a sprite of popular anime character Doraemon hidden in the background of Gill's stage. To actually see the sprite in-game, first the player has to perform a glitch to get Alex and Chun-Li onto Gill's stage. Right after that they have to do several glitches including one involving Alex and Chun-Li's throws to get the latter at an unnaturally high point. If Chun-Li stomps on Alex she will fly up into the air and the background will eventually loop vertically, revealing the Doraemon sprite.

Pokémon Sun & Moon
If you go into your Poke Finder and take a picture of a large body of water, there's a chance you'll get a comment that says: "7.8/10 Too Much Water." This is very likely a slam at IGN's review of Pokémon Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire for criticizing the later half of that game for having to use water-based HMs like Surf a lot.

In the Blood and Wine DLC, you cannot access Mount Gorgon in Toussaint by normal means. However, there is a small grassy field on the summit of the mountain that can be accessed using mods. If you teleport Geralt there, you can find a blank canvas with a red blotch on it sitting in-between two columns. Using Witcher Sense to view the canvas will reveal a completed painting: a group picture of the game's developers at CDProjekt Red.
