The secrets and jokes hidden inside video games can sometimes venture into very bizarre territory. These are nine such easter eggs.

In the Intellivision version of Dig-Dug is a remake of another Intellivision game: Tron Deadly Discs. By pressing 4 and 7 on both controllers and pressing Reset, the game loads Tron Deadly Dogs, which replaces the enemies in Deadly Discs with the hotdogs from Burger Time.

At 4:44 AM in the Japanese version of Harvest Moon: Friends of Mineral Town, check the television. The TV’s screen will be static, but a dialogue box will open and close displaying the number 4.

It’s meant to be a bad omen as “4” and “death” are pronounced the same way (shi) in Japanese.

Select the “Run” option while playing the RPG mini-game. Once in a while, a photograph of a face (selected from three photos in the US release) will be displayed, only the image is seemingly vandalized with the text “Who are you running from?” appearing at the top. Given the system’s graphical limitations, the end result is insanely creepy.

By following a series of strange steps the player will warp to the hidden course “Out of this Dimension.” The final boss is a giant slot machine; the player must shoot its lever so that it displays three sevens in a row, causing it to self-destruct.

However, this doesn’t return the player to the main game. Instead, they’re given a never-ending mini-game and must reset the game.

5Pokemon Wants To Go For Help

In Pokemon X and Y Lumiose City has a train station. If you go behind the notice board and push A, this message appears: “I’m going to go for help. Wait in the usual place.” No one has found any other reference to this in the game, but fan theories abound.

4Luigi Wants Luigi Dead

A room on the third floor in Luigi’s Mansion has three phones. When the power in the mansion goes out, go to this room, answer the middle phone, and wait.

When lightning strikes you’ll see Luigi’s shadow suspended off the floor with his arms hanging at his side. Players have argued that this is Luigi hanging himself. Whether or not it’s intentional or a graphical glitch is debated, though.

3Trails Want You to Find Treasure

A hidden song in Trials Evolution contained Morse code which led to a website which displayed a series of images which revealed the coordinates of four treasure chests in the real world.

Each chest contained a key and a clue alluding to both a fifth key and another treasure. The catch: said treasure will only be available in 2113. Elaborate hoax or hidden riches? We’ll likely never know.

It translates as “Fun is infinite with Sega Enterprises. Majin.” Majin can be translated as devil or demon which, combined with the creepy image and music, makes everything seem very sinister.

However, Majin is actually the nickname of Masato Nishimura, who worked on the game. This only takes a little of the weirdness away.

1Kirby Wants a naked Lady

In the hidden level, Red Canyon boxes are arranged that suggest a naked woman, including breasts and pubic area, though it’s easy to miss if you don’t look at all the pieces at once (which you can’t do on the Gameboy screen). But a strategy guide printed the whole image, making it perfectly clear.
