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.

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?"

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.

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.

NSFW - This trivia is considered "Not Safe for Work" - Click to Reveal
The Japanese version of the game contains downloadable maps featuring Japanese swimsuit model Yukie Kawamara that was only accessible via codes that were in specially marked boxes. In these maps, Kawamara's breasts are small bumps in the platforms that the player can roll on. This may have been deemed inappropriate for a kid-friendly game, which is why it hasn't been available in other countries for download since its release.

In the Battle for Azeroth expansion there is a Kingdom Hearts reference. Specifically, if the player goes to the Thresher's Wharf area of Stormsong valley and climb a tall structure they can find three Beleaguered Watchmen looking out dramatically at the water. The way they are positioned, dressed, and how the scene is choreographed, make them look like the three original human characters from Kingdom Hearts: Sora, Kairi, and Riku.

Strangely, only the NES port has an Easter Egg referencing ICOM Simulations' other popular adventure "Déjà Vu": In an out of the way corner of a late game labyrinth section, the player can find a tombstone of one "Ace Harding", the main protagonist of "Déjà Vu". Messing with the tombstone will cause a zombified Ace to appear, proclaiming he was once a famous detective, and all he wants now is to be left alone. Further irritating him results in one of the many instant in-game deaths.

Within the second level of the Clock Tower stage, there's a hidden exit which in the Japanese version when entered will feature a cameo by a Japanese personality accompanied with a secret message from them. If encountered on either easy or normal difficulty, idol Hiroko Nakayama will appear with a different message on each difficulty. When encountered on hard mode, Weekly Famitsu chief editor Hirokazu Hamamura will appear. Both personalities were hosts of the video game TV show Game Catalogue II which also mentioned the secret in the July 8, 1995 episode with behind the scenes footage shown in the July 22, 1995 episode.

In the Arcade version's Attract Mode, Rain can be seen fighting Shao Khan for about a second. Rain was not a playable character in this version but was added to stir up rumors of his alleged inclusion.

Upon closer inspection it can be noted that Rain's name within his health bar is copy-pasted in a different font than what is standard for character names during matches.

Rumble and Laserbeak can be found as hidden cameos in chapter two and if they are shot at they will retreat. Additionally Soundwave can be found the same way but disguised as a cybertronian light fixture and he will transform, taunt Optimus, and then retreat if the player focuses their aim on him.
