    Just wanted to make a thread pointing out Easter eggs and references. If there is any I missed, comment to tell me.

    References:
    1. Hero's outfit - The Legend of Zelda
    2. Robot hat - Cave Story
    3. Archaeologist's suit - Indiana Jones
    4. Doctor's clothes - Doctor Who
    5. Santa Costume - Christmas
    6. Plumber's clothes - Mario
    Easter Eggs:
    1. You can move the sun and moon on the title screen.
    2. If you grapple to a doorknob and then open the door, it shoots you out. (this was originally a glitch which shot you across the map, but the developers decided to make it so it only shoots you a bit and kept it as an Easter egg)
    Other:
    1. Mythril (this was what Frodo wore that was as strong as a dragon's scale but as light as a feather. Idk if this is a reference because it appears in many other games as well.)
    2. Chaos Elementals (is this Rune Scape?)

    The door bug is not an easter egg... just a bug.

    do not forget the Marumasa being the name of a master swordsman. The Dao of Pow, being ying yang thingy. Many, and i mean to many to count, quotes from the characters (like the "i thought u would be taller" being a famous quote used in every hero movie)

    Giant bats are just a idea the devc had to make bats a little more powerful, nothing big there...
    Corrupt bunny is it because a bunny wouldnt be hallowed if it goes visit corruption
    Antlion are a actual real life creature that make traps in sand... and terrarias are nothing like hl2's

    You do realize that the moderators have nothing to do with the making of the game, yes?

    One of the Goblin Tinkerer's names is Dalek, a reference to Doctor Who's most iconic aliens.

    I'm still convinced that the wyverns are actually Falcor from the Neverending story, and I get mad that they don't help me :(

    I'm pretty sure oden/odin is a major god in Norse mythology.

    It is generic asian dragon. Haku nad Falcor are just individuals.

    Haku looks more like Wyvern cause its the same, the only con is it only has 4 legs instead of 6.

    The King Slime is a reference to Ninja Gaiden (I think...), which is why there is a ninja inside of it.

    It still looks like a lightsaber, and I don't think terraria would be sued over it because lightsabers are now everywhere.

    The WoF is a reference to a boss from a certain game... I forgot which one. Might be a refrence to the Corpse Ball from Castlevania: Something something something.
