Several Monty Python and the Holy Grail easter eggs in Avalon
"I require... a shrubbery!"
Black Knight: "None shall pass"
Black Knight: "It's not that bad, I've had worse"
annoying rude frenchman
one of the sacred words that causes unbearable pain sounds like "knee"
Sir Robin Bravely and his minstrel song
Friar Nolan: "The difference in flight speeds between a Zafarian and Marleybonian swallow is considerable
Knight of the Sacred Words: "Before i go, i must retrieve my coconuts"
And of course, from the book of armaments, "let this, thy blessed pomegranate blow thy enemies to tiny bits in thy mercy" and when you throw said pomegranate "three shall be the number thou shalt count, and the number of the counting shalt be three. once the number three be reached, lobbest thy pomegranate towards thou foe, who shall snuff it."

No one has gotten the fact that the main villain in Marleybone is named "Meowiarty" obviously a reference to Moriarty from Sherlock Holmes.

Additionally, the Ravens in GH are also an Easter egg in themselves. Huginn and Muninn are the, "eyes and ears" of Odin.

Another possible Easter Egg might be that the Raven's Helm of Unkindness is based off of Hades' Helm of Darkness

So how many easter eggs has anyone found in Wizard101? i think this is an exciting comment since there are so many in each world. Some examples is a side quest in Azteca where a bird tells you about the many eggs they have. He shows you the room of eggs only to discover one is missing. You track the egg down and discover that a green pig has stolen it. This is an easter egg referring to Angry Birds!

Another is the knight in the pet pavilion that runs the cannon game. His name is Phillip Jagger. As some of you may know Mick Jaggers' real first name is Phillip.

Lastly, a possible one that is conflicted in the world of Wysteria. Some say it was like Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire in which many schools came together to compete in magical tournaments. Although, there are not much other similarities between the book and world, some still say it was a copy.

There are many more easter eggs that i can go on about but please list more easter eggs you have discovered while playing Wizard101 (explaining world and reference to what it is) THANKS!

Almost everything in KT and Balance Magic is based off of Egyptian mythology (as stated above: Alhazred, Krokonomicon, Judgement). Krokopatra? KROKHOPTEP? (can't quite remember what that one is but I know it's some reference.) The creators of this game are geniuses.
well they were going well with that until they reached Chimera and Sabertooth- the chain stopped at Ra (egyptian god of sun)

Let's face it - Wizard101 contains a LOAD of references to books, other games and whoknowswhat. And then there's just these little utterly brilliant gems that crop up here and there. So, let's collect those!

However, let's keep it to the little details that most people pass by without a second glance, and which you usually only pick up on the third or fourth run past. Dorothy wanting to visit Toto and Tin Man and gives out Red Slippers for a reward, for instance, is a very obvious reference and thus isn't exactly a hidden gem.

A gem would be Montgomery in the Science Center - who has a scottish accent if you listen to his voice file. His character design is based on an Aberdeen Terrier. The Aberdeen Terrier is generally known as the Scottish Terrier.

So, what gems have you located that you often had to explain to your friends before they understood your sudden amusement?
Krockanomicon = Necronomicon (Or Book of the dead)
The spell chant in Zafaria from a shaman "Oh-E-Oh-Ah-Ah-Ching-Chang-Wadda-Wadda-Bing-Bang" = From a witch doctor type song.

Here's a couple that other people may have missed, and dealing with Indiana Jones.
In Indiana Jones and and the Raiders of the Lost Ark, they say that Indiana's archeology proffesor is named DR. RAVENWOOD. Obviously the map room quest in krokotopia is taken from the map room in this movie, but the well of souls is also taken from the same movie. The well of souls is where the ark is hidden.
I'm watching Raiders of the Lost Ark right now and I'm not sure but isn't his enemy's name BELLOQ? Remember him from Azteca and Zafaria? And he's wearing a white suit, except he's not an elephant. I'm like a third of the way through the movie but I think they mentioned the Well of Souls already and they already talked about Dr. Ravenwood. When I heard that I'm like 'I have got to post this on the Easter Egg forum!' Because I was telling my mom about the Easter Eggs earlier today.

K, bye!

By the way, I'm sorry if someone else posted the Belloq thing.

in Zafaria there's a zoo keeper by the name of Jorton Whoghard. When you finish his final quest, he says of the gobbler "a person's a person no matter how strange."

This comes from Dr. Seuss'. Horton is an elephant in Horton Hears a Who.

Let's break it down:
Jorton (pronounce the J as if it was an H) that gives you Horton
Whoghard = Who Guard

Horton Who Guard

Horton sits on a bird egg and guards it while the mother bird is gone for a very long time.

Caerleon is a real place in Wales.
Caliburn is a reference to Excalibur, the sword in the stone.

I was helping someone with some nonsense in Stormriven Hall the other day and he pointed out that a lot of it seems to be loosely based off H. P. Lovecraft horror classics, especially Call of Cthulhu. (Cuthalla and Yogash, anyone?)

The high incidence of large Myth bosses may be a tongue-in-cheek reference to the old Mythos collectible card game that was based on the monsters in the book, many of which were "colossal, sanity-warping god-entities with many tentacles that lay dormant in the depths of the oceans; ready to awaken at the summons of their secret society of cultists."

When you first enter Stormriven, watch the fissure directly behind the diving platform. You will see a massive tentacle rising out of it. Follow the tentacle to its source and then up the wall nearest the fissure. The above description is pretty accurate for what you will see beyond that fissure.

I definitely agree with you there sir, there are an awful lot of easter eggs in Wizard 101.

I think that I may have found another one.

If you look behind Reed Treever in Regent's Square in Marlebone, you will see a poster. On the poster, there is a picture of a shadow of a dog wearing handcuffs, and the name Hairdini above the dog. Harry Houndini was a famous escape artist, who's nickname was Harry "Handcuffs" Houndini. :D

Didn't see it mentioned in the thread so far, maybe missed it

For Storm Lord spell quest, the eccentric engineer whose blueprints you need to fetch from his flat in the Labyrinth is called Pitter Daybreeze, which is a take on Piter de Vries, the evil mentat genius who served Baron Harkonnen in Frank Herbert's Dune series.

Just in case you miss it prima facie, Zan'ne tells you he left town muttering something about the "dunes" which is sort of a dead giveaway.

At the elevator to Scotland Yard Roof , behind you is a poster of Hairdini. It is a reference to Houdini who is quoted as the most famous magician of all time.
