    Re: All Easter Eggs in Pirate101!

    I looked through again and didn't see this one so...


    Captain Reynolds (shows up in a few spots in Cool Ranch) is supposed to be Mal Reynolds (Nathan Fillion) from Firefly. He even gives a quest to help a doctor (who has a strange crate of cargo) get to safety.

    It looked like there was some deliberation over whether or not the three horse singers were supposed to be the Three Amigos or just coincidence. Their name, collectively, is Dos Amigos y Uno (2 friends and 1...or 3 amigos).

    The great turtle in Mooshu (the one with the city on its back) bears a striking resemblence to the large, wise turtle from the Neverending Story movie.

    Throughout the Temple of Serenity there are a bunch of Masters with names like "Master Wa" Master Hao" Master Wen" ... allusions to Who, What, When, Where, Why and How.

    The Abe Pagoda is a tribute to Abe Vigoda, an old actor "Fish" from Barney Miller in the 80s.

    This game is just chock full of references. It really feels like pretty much everything has a reference to something. There truly are too many to list. We would literally be here for weeks just listing every little thing that this game "hides" within its world.

    Hey everyone! Sorry this thread hasn't been updated in awhile. I've been incredibly occupied with school work and whatnot. I'll be sure to have the thread updated and going by the end of Sunday.

    Madame Vadima could be loosely based on La Esmeralda from the hunchback of Notre Dome, more specifically the one appearing in Disney's version of the story(the movie).
    Here is a picture of Esmeralda from the movie and one of Vadima. They have similar color schemes and looks.

    Wyatt Earp (one of the Magnificent Seven) is a reference to Wyatt Arp Chrysler Dodge, a car dealership in Seguin, Texas.

    Actually, Wyatt Earp was a real person from the 'old west' of America. He fought in the gunfight at the O.K. Corral along with Doc Holliday and others. My guess is your "Wyatt Arp Chrysler Dodge" is based off of that Wyatt too.

    Most likely Wyatt Chirp(the name of the character in p101) is a reference to Wyatt Earp, real-life famous lawman of the wild west, who took part in the legendary "Shoot Out at the OK Corral".

    Re: All Easter Eggs in Pirate101!

    There are at least two characters in jonah town that are a reference to the 1980's tv show Murder She Wrote. Murder she wrote itself was a small fishing town in the state of Maine.
    Captain Ahab = Sherif Amus Tupper
    Robert Reyman = Doctor Seth Haslet
    Brody = may be a reference to Jessica Fletcher's nephew Grady

    And one of the early villains characters we face, Fin Dorsal, is based on the main character from the Pitch Black movies played by actor Vin Diessel.

    I also believe that the duo Tim & Perry, found in Jonah Town are based off of Jay and Silent Bob.

    Brody at Jonahtown is a reference to sheriff Brody in the Jaws movies. He needs a bigger boat.

    The Gortez story line comes from the movie Apocalypse Now and the book it's adapted from Heart of Darkness. Note the Dennis Hopper like character you first meet in that area with his 60's talk (yes, the frog NPC is named 'Hopper').

    I believe Captain Ahab is named for Captian Ahab from Herman Melville's classic Moby ****, about a great white whale.

    Tim and Perry are probably named for cartoon character's Tom and Jerry
