Nobody has mentioned it, but there is a dog walking around named Gordon Sumner. This is the bithname of rocker STING.

In the new Winterbane Gauntlet bundle, in the housing dungeon is a Boss named Jokul. A reference to being a "Joe Cool"?

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.
First of all, Harry Houndini was an escape artist, not a magician. Secondly, you copied mine. Meanie.

I've seen several references to classic band album and song titles, for example a quest in Celestia is named after the Pink Floyd album, "Dark Side of the Moon". And if I remember correctly, one quest is named after a Beatle's song, Here Comes the Sun. This just goes to show KI has great taste in music. I am truly loving all the references.
There is also for Forest Lord (level 58 life quest) Act Naturally, Norwegian Wood, and A Taste of Honey.
For Ra (level 58 balance quest) Here Comes the Sun, Good Day Sunshine, and Sun King.

The Beatles are so great, it even influenced the names for quests in Wizard101.

Ok, one reason why I really like wizard 101 is the same reason why i like the game pokemon. They dont just randomly come up with names, either they are underused words, or they are spinoffs. I know that there are probably hundreds, but I can only think of two that really stuck out: Hannibal OneTusk, a clever reference to Han Solo, and Morganthe's name is like Morgan Le Fay, the sorcerer. Oh yeah, one more, King Artorius in Avalon for king arthur, and if you look up avalon on wikipedia, it is an island that in the legend of king arthur, he hides on it to recover. It is off the coast of Britian.

I know that Professor Greyrose has this, but...
With Persistence, victory is assured...
If you are reading this Greyrose, i really like your quote.

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."
ROFL!! I recently watched this move and cracked up! The black Knight part mostly! and the evil bunny!

In Crab Alley, Doctor Zigmund say the lines "What could possible go wrong?" and "Get things back to normal" during his quests "For Science!" and "Error of His Ways". This references the show Fairly Oddparents where main character, Timmy Turner, will constantly say these words in almost every episode.

Grizzlehiem isn't anything in particular (At lest i don't think) I always thought it was a fort in North America before better places were made. Correct me if I am wrong. It would explain the bears.

Well, I don't know if this is so easter egg-ly, but in Wysteria the rabbit up in the Aerie is called Lapin something :P
(Lapin is French for rabbit)

Here is a Wizard101 easter egg from their other game Pirate101. I saw some treasure cards on a table on a island named "isla de los muertos".

Mar 12, 2013
I just did White Fire Pyramid last night and was cracking up over Skurkis Screaming Moon's quip:

"Who is this irresistible creature with an insatiable love for the dead?"

Straight out of Rob Zombie's Living Dead Girl. Still wondering what the original source is for this sound clip - Vincent Price maybe? An old Hammer Studios horror movie?

Anyway, it made me smile. Then I proceeded to get mauled almost to death by this life-mastery-having crusty old theropod.

Living dead girl indeed!

All of Zeke's quests are rock n roll bands:

1. The Smiths- Popular British Indie rock band from the 80's
2. The Yardbirds- 1960's British Blues/R&B band with psychedelic leanings, featured three of rock's greatest guitarists: Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, and Jimmy Paige.
3. The Stray Cats- American 80's band from New York that led the rockabilly rivival of the time.
4. The Lounge Lizards- Another (fairly unknown) 80's band from New York that created "fake jazz with pop and avant-garde rock tendencies."
5. The Stone Roses- short lived British 80's/90's band that merged classic 60's psychedelic rock with an 80's dance beat. (These guys are great!)
6. Blue Oyster Cult- The very first band I personally fell in love with. Though still around today, this New York based thinking man's heavy metal band flourished during the 70's and 80's, having hits like "Don't Fear the Reaper" and "Godzilla"
7. The Troggs- 1960's Bristish Proto-punk band that was best known for it's song, "Wild Thing"
aww you took it before i was going to write it :P

Not sure if this has been posted before, but the last of the three badges for killing goblins is apparently called 'Napoleon Complex'.

Jul 01, 2013
Dunno if anyone has stated it yet but there is what i believe to be a "Doctor who" easter egg in marleybone. We have "The Professor" and his telegram box :P Which is like Dr. Who and his phone box XD

May 30, 2009
has no one noticed one very cool easter egg! In MarleyBone in front of the entrance to Scotland yard roof there is a telegraph and someone named the professor standing next to it! Ring any bells? if not let me spell it out for you.

Telegraph- TARDIS

The Professor- The Doctor

Still not ringing any bells? This is a reference to Doctor Who!

There are several references to Indiana Jones:
(1) In the Island Getaway house, there is a room which features a rolling boulder that falls over a hallway. This refers to the scene where Indy must outrun a giant bolder that chases him through a temple after he recovers a golden statue.
(2) The Krokotopia dungeon, Throne Room of Fire, features a map room and Staff of Krok that refer to an identical map room and staff in Raiders.

Though this isn't in Wizard101, I feel this is a easter egg OF Wizard101 in another game. In Pokemon Black and White, there are a set of locations called, Dragonspiral Tower (how coincidental that the tower is named after the world of towers :-o ), the GIANT Chasm (Grand Chasm), and the Celestial Ruins (or something like that).
For your information those are only in pokemon black and white 2. Also they play a major story line role the fusion and controlling of the pokemon black or white kyurem depending on which game you have. I have pokemon white and brother has black. Yes they are easter eggs and i'm not sure why i posted this i'm just a picky little nerd like that.

PS i found an easter egg myself, there is a TV show called doctor who about a man called the doctor who travels around in a blue british call box. And i quote from the zafaria quest that involves the professer " Intellect and joy will always triumph over brute force and anger" This is one of the Doctor's main philosophies. Also the fact that the professer is an exact dog look alike to the 10th doctor, except the professer says he's traveling in a red british telegraph box. Sure whatever you say. But thats my easter egg

Jul 25, 2009
The one's I've noticed is The Professor in front of the police station in Marleybone. He's next too a phone box.(Doctor Who, anyone?)
Also, there's a name of a quest for ice wizards called "Winter is Coming". It's a reference to a show.
