Numerous easter eggs and references to various books, movies and other games are one of the staples of the Fallout series. These are instances where something or someone from pop culture or the real world is referenced in the game itself, e.g. Fallout 2 has an encounter with King Arthur.

Mythic Easter Egg on Sandbox
A virtual Easter egg is an intentional hidden message or feature in an object such as a movie, book, CD, DVD, computer program, or video game. The term draws a parallel with the custom of the Easter egg hunt observed in many western nations.

This practice is analogous to hidden signature motifs such as Diego Rivera including himself in his murals or Alfred Hitchcock's legendary cameo appearances.

Bungie has a long history of easter eggs, starting in Marathon, going on through to Myth, and finally its more recent games in the Halo series.

An Easter egg is hidden content intentionally inserted by the creators. With respect to Lost, such content may be:

  • hidden inside either the episodes themselves, where they range from personal jokes, to foreshadowing or development of a plotline or;
  • integrated within the retail DVD interfaces as hidden functions, interface behaviors, and full videos, where Easter eggs have become an expected part of this product industry.

The solutions to the code puzzles on the back of the Lost jigsaw puzzles may also be considered a form of Easter egg. Also, other media content such as comics and other television programs occasionally make allusions to Lost, which may also be considered Easter eggs.

The actual term Easter egg derives from the traditional Easter egg hunt, a Western holiday tradition where children search for Easter eggs which have been hidden outdoors. An Easter egg in the figurative sense is hidden content that creators of certain media, have decided to place within their creations, for reasons that may be personal, novelty, or in the case of DVDs, marketing reasons.

Season 1 Easter eggs

1x15: "Homecoming"

  • Charlie asks Lucy Heatherton where her father is and she replies "I think he's off buying some paper company up in Slough". This is a reference to the UK version of The Office, of which JJ Abrams is a fan.

1x17: "...In Translation"

  • When Jin arrives at Byung Han's house to deliver the "message", Hurley can be seen on the television in the background.

1x18: "Numbers"

1x22: "Born to Run"

  • When the screen shows Kate changing her license plate from Nebraska to Ohio, the county on the plate is listed as Shelby, its only city being Sidney, a reference to Sydney, Australia.

Season 2 Easter eggs

2x02: "Adrift"

  • As Sawyer and Michael cling onto the broken raft, a shark with a DHARMA logo visible on its fin swims past. This was confirmed as an Easter Egg rather than a plot clue (although it was later referenced jokingly when Jack was in the aquarium).

2x04: "Everybody Hates Hugo"

  • In Hurley's dream in the pantry, he takes a drink from a milk carton. On that carton is Walt and he is labeled as a missing child.

2x09: "What Kate Did"

  • When Kate visits Sam Austen there is a TV screen in the lower left hand corner. On TV, Sayid is getting arrested.

2x14: "One of Them"

2x15: "Maternity Leave"

  • The paintings hanging in the Staff OR for Claire's OB/GYN procedures are Georgia O'Keeffe's 1923 "Grey Line with Black, Blue and Yellow" and 1919 "Music: Pink and Blue II". O'Keeffe is known for paintings of flowers rendered to resemble female genitalia. These paintings were also visible in 3x16 "One of Us"

2x16: "The Whole Truth"

2x18:"Dave"

Season 3 Easter eggs

3x01: "A Tale of Two Cities"

3x03: "Further Instructions"

3x04: "Every Man for Himself"

3x07: "Not in Portland"

3x08: "Flashes Before Your Eyes"

3x13: "The Man from Tallahassee"

  • In a flashback, Locke can be seen watching an episode of Exposé while eating his dinner.

3x14: "Exposé"

  • During the scene of the filming of the Exposé TV show, the clapper board and directors chair show the name Stephen Williams, who was the actual director for Exposé.
  • Dr. Kincaid, the man who tended to Locke when he first became paralysed, is also mentioned in the episode "Exposé" when Paulo reads the description of the director he and Nikki had just killed. One of the shows it was said the director had been the mastermind of was "Dr. Kincaid Esquire".

3x16: "One of Us"

  • The waiting area of Herarat Aviation is seen. Herarat is an anagram of Earhart, which has led people to believe this references Amelia Earhart.
  • The paintings hanging in the Staff OR for Sabine's failed OB/GYN operation are Georgia O'Keefe's 1923 "Grey Line with Black, Blue and Yellow" and 1919 "Music: Pink and Blue II". O'Keefe is known for paintings of flowers rendered to resemble female genitalia. These paintings were also visible in 2x15 "Maternity Leave"

3x18: "D.O.C."

  • In flashback, when Sun went to visit her father at his offices, the company contained Korean script translating to Paik Heavy Industries. Moments later, Sun entered Mr. Paik's office, interrupting a conversation. This was the only Korean in the episode not subtitled. It was found that the individuals in the room were discussing forged shipping documents, and explicitly mentioned The Hanso Foundation (providing a hidden link to the Lost Experience).

3x19: The Brig

  • When Locke's father bites Locke in the hand and Locke withdraws and looks at the wound, you can briefly see the name "Alex" appear on Locke's arm. Probably a reference to the role Alex, Ben's daughter, will play later on.

3x20: "The Man Behind the Curtain"

3x21: "Greatest Hits"

  • During Charlie's flashback at the pool, someone in the background says "come on Desmond" Desmond is one of the main characters in season 3. This flashback is from when charlie was a young boy.

3x22: "Through the Looking Glass"

  • The name of the funeral parlor Jack goes to, "Hoffs/Drawlar," is an anagram for "Flash Forward".

Season 4 Easter eggs

4x01: "The Beginning of the End"

  • The letters H and O show up several times in this episode. "H" is the 8th letter of the alphabet and "O" is the 15th, together this makes 815.
  • When Hurley is talking to Abaddon the chalkboard behind them shows a drawing of a ship, an island, and a shark.

4x02:"Confirmed Dead"

  • The helicopter's marking is N842M.
  • Charlotte was said to be born on July 2, 1979. Amelia Earhart was pronounced missing on July 2, 1937; exactly 42 years earlier.
    • This is almost certainly a coincidence as Charlotte is clearly a small child in 1974 when the Survivors enter the DHARMA camp. The producers have stated that this was a production error; because the actress playing Charlotte was so much younger than they had originally intended, they used her real birthdate for that of the character, forgetting that this would contradict the rest of the story to come. Or, Ben was just lying.
  • While Miles kneels over Naomi's dead body, whispers can be heard. When the audio on the scene has been reversed, slowed down slightly, and cleaned up, the phrase "You gotta see it through" can be heard.

4x04:"Eggtown"

  • As Kate is entering the courtroom, a bearded man yells at her. When the audio is reversed, it is clear he is saying "We hate you!"

4x06:"The Other Woman"

4x07:"Ji Yeon"

  • Sun is watching a dubbed Korean version of the season 4 finale of Exposé before she switches off the TV and calls an ambulance as she is about to have her baby. Nikki and Mr. LaShade are briefly visible for a split second.

4x08: "Meet Kevin Johnson"

  • Kevin Johnson's passport number: HNSO12153 references Hanso (HNSO) and two of the Numbers 4 and 8 (1+2+1=4 and 5+3=8).

4x09: "The Shape of Things to Come"

  • Hurley and Sawyer played Risk. Sawyer twice rolled the dice, which read 16.
  • At the Sonar Fence, Alex pushes the Numbers 1623.

4x11: "Cabin Fever"

  • A Geronimo Jackson poster and photograph of Sir Richard Burton, explorer are visible in teenage Locke's locker.
  • The second protocol Keamy grabs from the safe has the same DHARMA symbol that Ben's parka had in "The Shape of Things to Come".

4x12:"There's No Place Like Home, Part 1" This was later revealed to be a significant part of the plot.

  • Membata, the name of the Island Oceanic claimed the Six lived on, is Indonesian for "doubt" or "uncertainty", linking to the lie.
  • A Geronimo Jackson record jacket can be seen near the DJ at Hurley's party.
    • As we see the Geronimo Jackson record, a kid, with the number 42 on his jersey comes in and out of frame. Another child has a jersey with the number 23.
  • What can be seen of Ben's mirror message, interpreted in Morse code, translates to "seise" [1]. The reply was "sii" [2] (although there may have been another letter after the "s" while Locke was raising his binoculars).
  • On the enhanced version, Jack revealed that Boone, Libby, and Charlie are the other 3 (in the cover up story) that died on the Island. These three characters are the only characters that have appeared in prominent visions of other characters after their demise: (Boone appearing to Locke, Libby appearing to Michael and Charlie appearing to Hurley).

4x13:"There's No Place Like Home, Parts 2 & 3"

  • As the Oceanic Six arrive on Sumba, the blocking and set dressing of Sumba's shore is similar to Elliott's second flashback from Lost: Via Domus.
  • The people in the Searcher speaking Portuguese are the same people seen in Live Together, Die Alone. The bizarre accent is the same heard in that episode, still neither European nor Brazilian, although closer to the latter. A list of countries speaking Portuguese may be found at [3]. The transcript goes:

(The castaways see the Searcher, Jack realizes they will have to lie)

- Aponta, lá adiante! Lá! (Point it there! Right there!)

- Uma jangada cheia de gente. São oito deles. (A raft filled with people. There are eight of them)

- De onde eles vieram(?)? De onde eles vieram? (Where did they come from(?)? Where did they come from?)

- Ei, aqui! Dá uma olhada aqui! (Hey, here! Take a look here!)

- Depressa! (Hurry!)

- Pega uns cobertores. E a caixa de primeiros socorros. Traga para aqui agora! (Get some blankets. And the first-aid kit. Bring them here now!)

- Uma jangada com pessoas, Ms. Widmore! Ms. Widmore, venha à proa! (A raft with people, Ms. Widmore! Ms. Widmore, come to the front of the boat!)

(Penny speaks)

Jigsaw puzzles

Main article: Jigsaw puzzles

Between July 2006 and August 2007 a series of Lost themed jigsaw puzzles were released. Although seemingly each one a 1000 piece puzzle based on a particular theme, each puzzle when completed holds several secret messages when viewed in the dark. Gregg Nations, part of the Lost production and writing team, has cited information gained from the Easter eggs in this series of puzzles as canon[4].

Overview

"Easter Egg" is the slang term used to describe a hidden message or feature in an object such as a movie, CD, DVD, computer program, video game, or other computer related product. The "City of" franchise has many easter eggs hidden within it.

Many of what at first seem to be Easter Eggs are infact Ingame References and can be found there.

Visual References

  • A photo of the beta city of heroes design team can be found behind the nurse's counter in most hospitals.
  • In Mercy Island prior to the launch of the Black Market, a suspiciously familiar 1980's Freightliner cabover semi could be seen parked, at location 2078.5 239.1 990.5; it has since been replaced by the standard Black Market truck, which is colored blue (like Powered Convoy), has a changed license plate that no longer begins with "OP," and lacks the stripe on the closed side of its trailer. Note that the trucks parked at Wentworths in hero zones have the same new cab as the Black Market trucks, but retain the striped trailers of the original.
  • In Grandville, deep in the tunnels under the zone, can be found a Developer's Dungeon, with cubes for most of the design team.
  • In the Northwest part of St. Martial there is a skeleton that appears as if it is being hanged from the large tree. If the camera view gets too close, the skeleton disappears.
  • In Wentworths' back storage room, there are pinball machines with the City of Heroes splash page on the back.

Powers

Sometime before April 2005, a couple of powers were added to the pigg files. Based upon Positron's post regarding the 2006 Jester badge image, they were probably just added as an April Fool's joke on the people who went looking into the pigg data files.

Toy Bat Minor Smash damage (Special)
This bat is covered with a soft foam-like material cushioning its impact. The toy bat does Trivial damage to villains, but can also be used against allies for no damage. And lets face it, some of your 'friends' deserve it. Damage (Villains Only): Trivial, Recharge: Very Fast.

Badges

The Jester badge image was added to the pigg data files around the beginning of March, 2006. The image led to much talk about the possiblility of an April Fool's event. After April had come and gone, Positron revealed the joke by saying:
April's Fool never being gettable IS the joke. It was put into the files as a joke badge that was never going to be given out. There is no honest way to get this badge, and there was never anything planned, either. The only way to get the badge is to be a dev and use a special command, and even then, it doesn't last upon zoning.
The Egg Hunter Badge can be found inside the Cryptic Lounge, a small room hidden in Faultline.

Emotes

The dice7 emote is unlocked by earning the Burkholder's Bane Badge for Heroes.

The ListenStolenPoliceBand emote is unlocked with the Outlaw Badge[1]

Mercedes Lackey Books

There is a shelf of Mercedes Lackey books downstairs at the back of the university library in Croatoa. Lackey is a regular player in the game and this object acknowledges that as well as the good relationship between Lackey and the game development team. Lackey has contributed to COH mythos by writing a short story for an online COH publication. The "Secret Worlds" stories apparently grew out of a group of friends that played with Lackey. Lackey reports that she tends to play almost exclusively hero side; disliking the idea of being a villain.
