The only Easter Egg I can think of is what happens when you get all 50 Red Jewels in Illusion of Gaia for the SNES. I won't post it here, in case I get banned for using spoilers to Troll.

OMG, I remember being deathly scared of Freedan's EarthQuaker attack. IDR why, though.

Now, raise your hand if, when you saw the scene for the very first time, you thought you were going to fight off the Jackal as he was burning to death in the Pyramid.

*raises his own hand, so does his brother, who has played the game*

I was like, "Oh, hell, a surprise boss fight. Great."
