  • The term 'Easter Egg,' refers to a hidden message or

  • joke or in the case of this list, scare in a video game.

  • It was originally coined by Atari, after they pointed out a secret message

  • left by Warren Robinett in the video game Adventure. In this list, most easter eggs,

  • are usually visual or triggered events that just add extra scares to the game.

  • They are not necessary to gameplay, but make for a spookier experience.

  • So here are the Top 45 Scariest Eastereggs In Games.

  • If you've played Star Fox,

  • you already know there's a secret black hole level.

  • However, it turns out there's another even more secret and downright creepy

  • level that isn't even shown on the map.

  • So most people will never know about it's existence.

  • To reach it, you must go to the hard asteroid belt stage and destroy a greenish gray asteroid,

  • that will release a giant space bird.

  • Now you have to fly into the giant bird. Once you do that, you will be thrown into

  • a warping and waving field of stars and planets. Planets with faces that are

  • grinning at you.

  • Apartment 3C is an easter egg

  • added by Rockstar Games, as a reference to the 1983 film 'Scarface;' as the film

  • takes place in Florida and has a mafia-like style. The bathroom in it, is

  • splattered with blood with a chainsaw pick up right next to it;

  • another nod to the film Scarface. The apartment plays no role in the

  • storyline whatsoever, but it was rumored to be featured in a beta mission.

  • The laboratory map is medium sized for ghost mode but

  • was also available for new death match in the past.

  • This map is pretty basic and loved by many players, but it still held a weird

  • and creepy picture of a baby near the blacklist spawn.

  • There's a door with a lot of sparks. If you look closely between the doors,

  • you will see a picture of a baby. There's been no indication

  • on whose baby it is, but many believe it's just a weird Easter Egg made by the

  • developers.

  • This creepy picture can be found in a vent in

  • the level 'Focal Point.'

  • From a distance, it appears the man has no pupils in his eyes.

  • But he does in fact have, 'eggs' for eyes; hence the pun Easter Eggs.

  • huh. see what we did there? This easter egg is also found in a toilet cubicle. The photo

  • of the person is one of the developers for Gearbox.

  • If not for the terrifying chord at the start, players found that several minutes in

  • strange, slow, demonic voices started playing. Among some analysis, many audio

  • experts started claiming that the voices were audition tapes for the character

  • Captain Ash, in the game that were slowed down.

  • It's clear that you wouldn't hear it the first time around, as you were more eager

  • to get back into the action.

  • Dead Island took inspiration from a number of horror classics, but buried in

  • the jungle was a cameo appearance by Jason Voorhees. If you can find the

  • machete wielding maniac,

  • you'll have a hard time killing him since he's one of the most difficult

  • enemies in the game.

  • His attack is a one hit kill, he can out run and chase the player all over the

  • level.

  • Yes, it's officially not the Jason, but his trademark hockey mask, disturbing bedroom

  • and trademark weapon, are proof enough.

  • In the last chamber of the Santa Maria, there is a pool.

  • Staring into the pool for 1 minute,

  • causes a Giant Squid to swim by.

  • If this process is further repeated, a cutscene plays and an enormous tentacle

  • comes out of the water.

  • What is it's purpose? and does it tie into the other games?

  • the answer remains a mystery.

  • There aren't many creepier feelings in the wide open ocean,

  • and one better way to make that fear even more scary, than my traveling out of

  • the playfield. A giant squid tentacle will attack the player and cause them to

  • be thrown back to their original position.

  • In the last courtyard, there is a loan health

  • pill in the middle right hand corner.

  • If you pick it up, you will activate a 'Secret Watcher.'

  • Look above, where you will find two eyes

  • floating in mid-air. Shooting them activates a "Secret Mighty Kamikaze,. Once activated,

  • the Kamikaze will explode itself in mere seconds and it has a huge explosion

  • radius so stand back.

  • The boss in the final level of Doom 2 is supposed to be

  • a giant horned demon skull head and if you listen closely,

  • the beast says in a distorted voice and demonic chant this.

  • Now, if one were to reverse the sound clip it will say this.

  • In order to find John Romero, you had to enable the no clipping mode. Walk through

  • the wall behind the demon head and then be confronted by the designer of

  • John Romero's head on a pike.

  • Lucas Arts, snuck this creepy little extra into the Western, shooter game

  • Outlaws. If you acquired some dynamite in the very first level, you could blow open

  • the 'Outhouse' and wander into a secret room with a UFO.

  • Opening the UFO window, reveals several aliens.

  • In the game jam sessions for the nintendo DS,

  • if you allowed the A6 guitar chord to ring out and not press anything afterwards,

  • a whispered voice,

  • that sounds very much like

  • After some investigation, it was apparently one of the recording artists

  • saying "next" in Japanese but the developers had forgotten to remove him.

  • The Psycho Mantis boss fight in Metal Gear Solid,

  • is renowned for having one of the most innovative player experiences.

  • Psycho Mantis is psychic and when he reads Snake's mind,

  • he's actually reading the memory card on your console which is still pretty creepy.

  • When he recognizes a game file he'll mention it

  • while demonstrating his abilities.

  • In one of the earlier test chambers of the game,

  • you can find an abandoned room hidden off to the side of the level.

  • Much like the rooms found in the original Portal. If you stand close enough to one

  • of the graffiti-covered walls, you can hear a kind of disturbing chanting.

  • Apparently this is a background character named 'Doug Rattmann,' who appeared

  • in a comic book set between the two games. He's the only survivor of GLADOS

  • and is responsible for all the graffiti and junk laying around the lab.

  • There was an anti-piracy message that was hidden in the game Sonic CD, for the

  • Sega CD. At the title screen you can activate the sound test by pressing "down

  • down down left and right." To see this message,

  • make sure the numbers read 46, 12, 25 After that, you will be taken to this screen.

  • Apart from the hellish music, what's more disturbing is the fact that the picture

  • was signed by the Devil.

  • The actual japanese text translates to:

  • Ghosts are paranormal phenomenon that are often featured as Easter Eggs

  • throughout the Metal Gear Solid games; and this ghost was one of the very first

  • scare frights players encountered. If Solid Snake photographs the second

  • projector screen in the Hold 2, then it will appear. If a player successfully

  • takes a picture of the ghost in Metal Gear Solid HD Collection,

  • they will earn a trophy achievement called "Who You Gonna Call?"

  • as a reference to the comedy Blockbuster film

  • "Ghostbusters."

  • The normal zombies you frequently encounter in the

  • game usually make some strange howling noises.

  • However, if you reverse it, it will sound like this.

  • If you play the game after 10:00pm in the evening,

  • the program will whisper your name at random times. It has a large collection of

  • whispered names and uses your game or windows profile name.

  • Definitely creepy for first time players.

  • In the Halo 2 song, 'Destroyers Indication,' in the

  • first meeting of the Mausoleum Suite, on the Halo 2 Original Soundtrack;

  • a mysterious voice chants. If this mumbling is reversed, a voice is heard saying:

  • There were more hidden Gravemind quotes in Halo 3's soundtrack too, and some appear

  • as a reference to Elliott's poem "The Hollow Men."

  • If you travel to another town and reset,

  • you won't get Mr Resetti, but one of your neighbors will say that they can't reload.

  • If you carry on playing, you will notice your character will have the 'Gyroid Face.'

  • Basically, Nintendo planned this into the game, to make sure you don't forget to save the next time you play.

  • In a game such as this,

  • you wouldn't even think for a moment that a stage would be haunted by the

  • Slenderman; but it is. At several parts of the level, you will notice him in the

  • background, standing motionless sometimes with tentacles protruding from his back.

  • If you reach the end of the level and not fire yourself at the target,

  • you were greeted to this.

  • In Super Mario 3D Land on Stage 4.4

  • when Mario reaches the end of the level, instead of jumping on the flagpole, run

  • behind it and stand at the gate for about a minute.

  • After a while, a ghostly figure will slowly materialize in the background. It resembles a tall skinny

  • sheet with a mask for a face. It doesn't do anything. It just floats in the background

  • creepily for about another minute before it disappears again.

  • Fans have referred to it as a 'Shy Guy Mask' or 'Kodama' or even a 'Hell Valley Skytree.'

  • This face appears on two levels.

  • World Of Warcraft takes place

  • in a truly massive universe, So there's a lot of room for weirdness in the dark corners.

  • In the town of Goldshire, for instance

  • if you're standing in the right spot at 7am, you'll see '6' children

  • running around in a pentagram formation before fleeing back into their home.

  • If you follow them, you'll hear some spooky

  • ominous music and find the kids standing completely motionless; still in their

  • pentagram configuration. They apparently disappear at 8pm each day only to

  • reappear the next morning.

  • When asked, Blizzard said that the children are homage to the Diablo Games;

  • a popular series also from Blizzard.

  • In the Fenix Rising DLC the Slab Map,

  • search for a recreation area outside. Find one of the thrash balls and kick it to a gate

  • that's blocking a hallway towards the electric chair.

  • Kick the Thrashball through the circular hole in the gate. A rat will exit the hole and a disturbing Locust laughs.

  • Once you perform the Death Row Laugh Easter Egg,

  • if you go to the top left door on the map where the footprints are and shoot it,

  • you'll hear the sound of a man groaning. In the showers on the right hand side

  • when looking down the stairs,

  • there's a knife stabbed into the wall.

  • The teddy bears have made many appearances
