Attachment
At any time during a battle when the player is selecting a command, pressing Right/Right/Left/Left/Up/Down/Up/Down/Right/Left will play a voice clip of Vyse sighing and remove his goggle for the rest of the battle.

Star Fox
Attachment
On the Continue screen, Fox can be seen standing alongside a grid display showing off the 3D model of an Arwing, which can be interacted with.

Controls:
•D-Pad = Rotates the model; pressing or holding down in one direction will cause it to move faster; doing so in the opposite direction will cause it to slow down; doing so in a perpendicular direction (i.e. pressing either left/right and then pressing either up/down, or vice versa) will not affect the speed of the model.
•X button = Stops the model's movement; moving with the D-Pad resumes it.
•L and R buttons = Zooms in and zooms out the model respectively.
•A button = Holding this button triggers a "drawing" mode where a still image of the frame where the render last appeared will trail behind it infinitely with each succeeding frame; this effect is similar to the "trailing/ghosting" glitch that can occur when dragging windows or dialog boxes on older computer operating systems.
•Plugging in a second controller = Every button except for L, R, X and A, will let you scroll through numerous models of enemies found throughout the game.

Little Nemo: The Dream Master
Attachment
Near the halfway point of Dream 2: The Flower Garden, if you use the Bee to fly over a large body of water, you will land on a platform that is blocked off by a small tunnel that can only be accessed while riding the Lizard. Flying back over to the other side will spawn a unique enemy that does not appear anywhere else in the game: a blue rabbit that throws green Easter eggs and will charge at you if you walk too close to it.

Developer: Viacom New Media
Attachment
"Hatman" is a recurring crude caricature of a Viacom New Media higher-up that the developers hated. Originating as paint graffiti of the person on a wall whose identity was disguised by putting a top hat on it, it soon made hidden appearances in the rest of the developer's output as an obligatory easter egg. The earliest known Hatman easter egg made for a game was a short CG animation for the game Beavis and Butt-Head in Virtual Stupidity.

Beavis and Butt-Head in Virtual Stupidity
On the End Credits screen, entering one of the following four codes without the quotation marks, "BOIDUTS", "YNNIF", "SKCUS", or "NAMTAH", will trigger one of four short videos:

The first video is a montage of video footage recorded at Viacom New Media featuring the developers playing around during development (including running around outside during a thunderstorm), showing off a production baby, and ending on Butt-Head saying "Dumbass!" while the word is superimposed over a picture of a developer.

The second video is another montage of videos and pictures recorded during development (including the team going swimming and posing on a couch with Beavis and Butt-Head statues) set to an original rock song written for guitar and sung by one of the developers. Hatman also makes appearances in this video.

The third video is a montage of video footage recorded during the making of the game's beta, which according to the video was completed on August 25, 1995 at 4:45 in the morning. The video prominently features the developers excitedly screaming "Beta" over and over again, before showing them lying in the hallway of the studio exhausted and ending with the quote "These kids are intense...." on screen.

The fourth video is a crudely-made CG animation of Hatman floating through space, and is believed to be the earliest instance of the easter egg made for a game.

NSFW - This trivia is considered "Not Safe for Work" - Click to Reveal
At the Veterans Hall, select the Foot and and click the top-left, top-right, bottom-right, and bottom-left corners of the building's sign in that order. A sequence will play out where the stuffed grizzly bear from the Insane Wing appears in front of the building and Butt-Head tells Beavis to "check in his anal cavity". Beavis then reaches inside the bear's anus and pulls out a red piece used in the puzzle game Zoop, which was also published by Viacom New Media around the same time as this game, before putting it back inside claiming that he felt something, but couldn't grab it, and then cutting to the game's title screen. Presumably, this sequence was scrapped from being used in the Insane Wing, but left in the game by hiding it in a different location.

Beavis and Butt-Head in Virtual Stupidity
Attachment
At the start of the game in the Classroom, select the Foot and use it on the top-left and top-right corners of the door and chalkboard respectively. This will trigger an animation where Beavis and Butt-Head walk to the chalkboard, and Butt-Head draws a picture of Hatman before cutting to the game's ending cutscene.

Hatman's existence in Beavis and Butt-Head in Virtual Stupidity was first revealed in a 1999 Chicago Tribune article on Hatman after Viacom New Media was integrated into Virgin Interactive in 1998, although it would take another 20 years for video footage showing this easter egg in action to surface online.

In the Slaughterhouse, selecting the Foot and using it on the bottom-right corner of the top-left beam holding up the building will cause the Foot to flash. Doing the same to the bottom-left corner of the top-right beam and then the bottom pixels of the two hooks on that beam from left to right will cause a short sequence to play out. Beavis will activate the slaughter machine, and a man wearing a cow mask will be killed in the machine instead of a cow. One of the game's developers who revealed the existence of this easter egg explained that this man was originally a caricature of a recognizable employee at Viacom New Media talking on a cell phone, but another employee suggested the cow mask be added to make the jab less obvious.

On the Podlink Farm, if you select the Foot and click on a specific spot on the top-left corner of the gate sign, the Foot will briefly flash. Do the same for the bottom-center of the sign and the top of the farm's silo, and a short animation will play of a nuclear missile launching out of the silo. One of the game's developers who revealed the existence of the easter egg explained it as being a "tiny juvenile rebellion" by Viacom New Media aimed at the Viacom managers they were sometimes at odds with.

Throughout the game, Theo frequently takes pictures of his trek for his "Instapix" (in-game replacement for Instagram) account called "TheoUnderStars". Ten months prior to the game's release, an actual Instagram account under this handle was created that posted pictures between April 4, 2017, and September 9, 2019, the release date of the Farewell DLC chapter. The account features artwork by concept artist Amora Bettany that took place before, during, and after the events of the game.

Batman: Arkham City
In an interview with Kotaku, Sefton Hill, game director at Rocksteady Studios, revealed that there was going to be a scene referencing the shark repellent from the 1966 film "Batman: The Movie" starring Adam West. At the part when Tiny the shark bites into Batman's raft, Batman would reach for a compartment on his Utility Belt labeled "shark repellent". Opening the compartment, Batman would pull out brass knuckles which he then uses to beat Tiny with.

"One of the ideas we originally had is the shark comes out and grabs the raft. And then Batman pulls out shark repellent and he opens it up, and inside the shark repellent was a massive knuckle duster. And he just smashes the shark on the nose. And then we thought: maybe the tone is going a bit wrong… then we thought we'd slip it in for New Game Plus. We decided not to."

However, a remnant of this idea is still on the final game. If the player loses against Tiny, one of the Game Over screens leaves the following hint: "Fight off the shark using Batman's powerful shark repellent: a flurry of furious strikes."

On the bookshelf located in the Fortress of Doom, there is a book titled "How to Comb your Mustache" by Cliffton M. Fischbach, the father of YouTuber Markiplier, who passed away due to lung cancer. The developers included his name as an easter egg in the game because Mark Fischbasch stated that his father got him into the very first game in the series.

Heretic
The game mocks Doom through the use of certain cheat codes. IDDQD, which grants invincibility in Doom, kills the player instantly instead, and entering IDKFA, which gives the player every weapon in Doom, takes away all of the player's weapons.

After reaching the lobby of Queen's mansion in Chapter 2, if the player backtracks all the way back to and interacts with the very first save point in Cyber Field, the accompanying flavor text will change, noting how the player has already seen this area before riffing on how their backtracking served no real purpose whatsoever.

Castlevania: Symphony of the Night
Attachment
Right before Richter fights Dracula, the two have a short conversation about his return and why humans summoned him back in the first place. In the original English localization of the game, Dracula says the line:

"What is a man? A miserable little pile of secrets."

This line was not in the original Japanese script nor was it written by translator Jeremy Blaustein for the game's English release. It originates from the 1967 essay "Antimémoires" by novelist André Malraux, France's Minister of Cultural Affairs at the time it was published.
