DK Rap (Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair)
Yooka-Laylee is heavily (and obviously) inspired by Donkey Kong — both in 3D and 2D incarnations. To drive that point home even harder, there’s a hidden ear-gauging secret from Donkey Kong 64’s embarrassingly bad DK Rap hidden in the latest game.
This time it’s a total joke. By stepping under a certain spot in the playground area of the overworld that looks a lot like the starting area of the original Yooka-Laylee, you’ll be able to listen to a full DK Rap parody with lyrics celebrating the game’s success. Really, this thing is just hilarious — but any reminder of the truly terrible DK Rap is enough to make me run for safety.
I AM ERROR (Cadence of Hyrule)
‘I AM ERROR’ returns in Cadence of Hyrule, the toe-tapping spin-off game mixing Zelda with Crypt of the Necrodancer. Instead of moving your character like normal, your character (Link or Zelda) must follow a never-ending beat, carefully maneuvering around randomly generated Hyrule to save the day from a new orchestral villain.
So, where does I AM ERROR come in? In the desert village, pushing a crate to a specific spot allows you to access a mysterious house that sells a unique item that allows you to move without following the beat. This character even spews the famous ‘I AM ERROR’ line — originally, that was a bugged bit of text from Legend of Zelda 2: Link’s Adventure.
