Morgan Freeman [South Park: The Fractured But Whole]
Probably one of the most ludicrous enemies ever appears in South Park: The Fractured But Whole — and this kind character only attacks if you provoke him too much. The godly-voiced Morgan Freeman is working at Freeman’s Tacos. Normally, the famous actor (who is very obviously voiced by Trey Parker) just exposits to you about your destiny, and helps you learn your fart-based superpowers.
To actually fight him, you have to punch him. One time isn’t enough — three times is too far. Morgan Freeman is completely optional as far as bosses go, and I know that I completed the entire game without setting him off. Why would you punch Morgan Freeman? But fighting him is hilarious, and he has a bunch of unique attacks — including the ability to charm any player character with his freckles. (It won’t work on any character that already has freckles, though.)
Pac-Man Ghosts [Wolfenstein 3D]
One of the earliest FPS Easter eggs comes straight from Wolfenstein 3D. Instead of shooting enemy soldiers and stopping the plans of the Third Reich, you can find a secret level detour to a Pac-Man themed maze. The maze is a recreation of the arcade classic, and even includes new enemies — the Pac-Man Ghosts!
Most of the ghost colors are off, so these aren’t exact copies of the four Pac-Man ghosts. They also don’t exhibit the same unique enemy behavior of the real Pac-Man ghosts, which each have a slightly different AI routine. These Ghosts just chase you through the levels, and they’re totally invincible. Somehow pixel ghosts become ten times more terrifying in first-person.
