The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask
Depending on what you name your save file, the name inputted will act as a seed that determines the position of the twinkling white stars in the night sky, while the blue stars and larger red planet remain in the same position. Since there is a character limit of 8 characters for a name, the number of possible variations is estimated to be somewhere under 5.3 billion, the key word being "under" as this cosmetic feature does not utilize all 127 characters available, so the actual number is bound to be lower.

In Chapter 4 'Cuckoo Clock', during the level section 'Gates of Time' players can find a river boat. If players get in the boat and ride along the track, they will come across a house on a pier. If a player enters this house inside they will find numerous blue pots with white stripes & large crates. The pots can be broken and inside them are green Rupees. This room is a reference to the Guard House of Castle Town from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, a location infamously used to easily farm Rupees. An Achievement/Trophy is also unlocked: 'Force Triangulated', with the description, "Breathe some wind into your ocarina, my skyward princess".

Super Mario Kart
The game has a secret CPU ghost mode which can be accessed under the Time Trial menu by pressing Start on a controller in port 2 while selecting a driver. This triggers a CPU cursor to appear, allowing the player to select a ghost driver to compete against. However, the CPU ghosts are capable of interacting with elements of a track's mechanics, like the ice blocks found in Vanilla Dome.

If the player allows the CPU to destroy these blocks, then drives over where the blocks were, then saves and race against their own ghost, a glitch will occur where the ghost will vanish when it touches the block that was supposed to have been destroyed and trigger a visual error where the player's tires will cycle between two frames of animation even while in an idle position. This glitch only occurs when the player and the ghost use the same driver.

Nintendo fans generally acknowledge X to be the first game to implement "Totaka's Song," a 13-note melody composed by Nintendo music veteran Kazumi Totaka.

NSFW - This trivia is considered "Not Safe for Work" - Click to Reveal
In the North American release, the game came with a pin-up poster featuring a blonde woman using the pole holding up a BMX bike cushion to pole dance on. The size of the pin-up varies with each port of the game, with the GameCube version's being double the size of the rest as the back side of it features a map of the game's first area, The Bronx, NYC.

However, that's not the only pin-up to come with the North American release of the game. The cover art is reversible, and if you flip it over to the back side you will find a pin-up of a redheaded woman in lingerie sitting backwards on a BMX bike, with tattoos of logos for the game and for the AKA Acclaim brand on each of her buttocks.

Tank Battalion / Battle City
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.


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
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 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.

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.

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
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.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt
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.

If the player enters the following names starting with the word "Krunk" as their profile name, hidden messages will appear:

Krunk: "You heard about the time I killed me a couple of Heroes?"

Krunki: "My hands are red with the blood of thousands."
Krunko: "You know I once burned down a whole village?"
Krunkn: "I once killed a White Balverine, I did. It's true."

Note that the last letter in each variation of "Krunk" spells "lion", in reference to Lionhead Studios.
