Easter Eggs

Tributes to other super hero media...sneaked into the game.

City hall: The mayor has no name, he's just "The Mayor" and he's really short with a giant handlebar mustache.
His secretary is statuesque, but her hairdo totally obscures her face.

A shoeshine boy is a bipedal dog.

at night in the clouds the city will shine the bat signal, but there is never a bat...its always a range of other logos...including the Thundercats signal

a green lantern ring is on the sidewalk...but no one can pick it up.

Speaking of Green Lantern

Speaking of Green Lantern Easter Eggs, there was a command or something that gave you a little force bubble around your hand like a GL might have. I never found out what it was, and I suspect it was a secret command of some sort never made public for just that reason.

With green, white, and black, and capital phi, you could approximate a costume, but those guys under Atlas that one day, what was that ring bubble command?

All Easter Eggs with copyrighted materials would first need a written OK from the rights holder(s) ... Not that I think they would mind too much if asked nicely. All they would reply is yes or no. ...

Not if you change them

Not if you change them slightly. Maybe give them a different name.
Then it would be fine. Marvel and DC parody each others characters all the time that way.

I think most of it could be handled under 'Homage' and 'Parody' laws? Always been a little fuzzy on those.

Like Diggler's Dirk in Diablo 2. Or the Dragon Age Origin random encounter with the farmers that find a baby in a meteor crash site...

A little nonsense now and then, is relished by the wisest men.

I liked both the Warmachine and Superman "cameos", Still my favorite was in the tech lab with everyone asking about the TDS reports.

A design similar to the Zentradi or ED and the complete lack of METAL GEAR in his name to keep it from being too obvious and ip safe..

Name the chicken walker E

Name the chicken walker E-Walk and we're all good.
Out by the docks there is a small room built into a stack of shipping containers and inside is a pool table, a pinball machine, and lit by a blue star made of neon lights.
In the City there is a Gym. The sign for that Gym is in tall bold blue letters S-T-E-E-L.
There's a woman outside a hospital. She has red hair and wears pale green scrubs. When prompted she asks you "Where am I?" "Who am I?" It's like she has lost her mind.
A temporary sidekick for a mission or series of missions never stops and never slows down. Never sticks with you so long as an enemy is standing in sight. They just keep on fighting health and endurance be damned, they just keep fighting.
In a lab a scientist is stuck in a suit that is stuck to a metal wall. When you get close he pulls one arm free of the wall reaching for a dial on his chest and says, "If I can just adjust the gauss setting I could...ugff" and his arm snaps back to the wall.
A Villain scoffs as you walk in, "Who do you think you are? Some sort of super man? You think you're faster than my bullets?" Then starts shooting. Bonus points for including a Locomotive, a model of a tall building, a plane, and a blue and red bird in that same room.
In a dark alley near a theatre two chalk outlines are drawn on the ground. A black cat sits on a nearby trash can. A single bat hangs from a fire escape overhead. A penguin stands in the shadows behind a dumpster. A deck of cards is scattered on the ground, all cards are wild.
Near a sewer entrance sits a rat next to an empty pizza box. Spray painted on the wall are four brightly colors psychedelic turtles. Purple Orange Red and Blue.
In the forest an arrow is embedded in a tree, split in twain by another arrow.
I'll need some time to think of some more easter eggs.
(edit) Moar!
Sky pirates on death should have a chance of saying, "You can't take the sky from me"
A old victorian home currently operating as an Senior Citizen home has 5 notable residents. A pair sit on the porch, one wears a white shirt with an orange ascot, the other wears a purple dress. A third sits on a bench reading a book, she wears and orange sweater. The final 2 are an old man with a green shirt and red pants, and a large dog. If you get to close they stop and the old man says: "Oh! You scared me...I'm hungry" On dark nights a ghost glows faintly in an attic window.
In a small neighborhood in the early evening a teen named "Ronny" whispers at a second story window, "Julia"
A skinny blonde girl carrying a little dog complains "It's hot"
When SWAT is standing around a member stands off to one side facing the wrong direction holding a door breaching ram. His name is "Leroy"
A man in a black fur coat occasionally says, "Winter is coming"
When a humanoid alien dies it has a chance of saying, "I die for Aiur"

I'd be tempted to exchange my exploration badge for an easter egg like this, but it'd probably get way out of hand in terms of coding.

Isn't that, like, all of them?

I'd look at him and say, "Well, there's your problem. We use teslas these days." And keep walking.

A Gauss is a mTesla. And more people are familiar with Gauss as a unit related to magnetics. Where as if I had said "Tesla setting" I think more minds would have gone towards the electric arcs created by one of his other invention, the Tesla coil. Perhaps I didn't give my audience enough credit.

That is...not exactly what I had in mind and I thought I was pretty blunt with that Egg. Bonus points for creativity?

Yes, many of us considered the flying blaster with horror... until we met the ghost-shooter who aggroed on things that weren't there and insisted on Meleeing with them. Tomb Raider, she was not.

Be Well!

Oh, her! I forgot about her. Though I'd probably nominate the non-super military guy who was along on some Vanguard missions and was just crazy about charging in a room and aggroing everyone with that stupid pistol he had.

And a Gauss is 0.1 mT. One of the many things that sucked about CGS.
