5 Funniest Easter Eggs in South Park: The Fractured But Whole

1 of 6

The South Park franchise is based entirely on references to other media, so it's no surprise that there are tons of Easter eggs in The Fractured But Whole. Many of them are insignificant and reference background characters, while some are full-blown references that you don't want to miss.

If you want to see what the five best Easter eggs in South Park: The Fractured But Whole are, then this guide will show you how to find them. Most of them can be seen during the main campaign, but others involve getting into side quests.

In any case, grab your popcorn and make your way through all of them!

Skip the Intro Easter Egg

One of the funniest and most unexpected Easter eggs in South Park: The Fractured But Whole appears right at the beginning of the game. When the intro cutscene starts, you are given the choice to skip it. 

But it's not as simple as it seems because whenever you try to skip the intro, Cartman starts bashing you and trying to persuade you to keep watching the cutscene, because it's "important."

If you keep pressing the skip button, Cartman's loses his patience and he makes you suffer through the entirety of the end credits, which lasts for about five minutes... but this time, you won't be able to skip them.

Tom Brady Easter Egg

You'll learn a simple truth early in TFBW: Cartman will never leave you alone. Consequently, there are plenty of Easter eggs involving Cartman, and this one is no different. As you progress, you'll come across a secret code to Cartman's basement, one that has to be entered on a numberpad in order to unlock the doors found there.

If you cheat (as most people do) and find the code online ("307"), you can just try entering it on the numberpad when you first come across it. However, the game will know if you cheated, and Cartman's avatar will appear on the screen dressed in a New England Patriots' jersey, shaming you for cheating and mirroring Tom Brady's deflate-gate controversy.


Rubik's Cube Eeaster Egg

Cartman's basement is a dangerous place that collects all sorts of mysterious artifacts. One such artifact can be seen under a glass dome -- the Rubik's Cube.

If you try to pick up the cube, Cartman will warn you to never touch it -- or you will die. If you keep trying to break the glass, Cartman will go on explaining that it's the most dangerous weapon in the galaxy, so don't ever touch it.

But who cares? Keep on hitting the glass until it breaks, and... everyone dies, just like Cartman said. 

Canada Easter Egg

Unlike The Stick of Truth, Canada is only slightly present as an Easter egg in the South Park sequel. It's not that easy to find it either, so here's where to find it in The Fractured But Whole.

When you arrive at the organic foods vendor, he'll move in front of you, blocking the way that leads to the Canadian border. To get past him, you need to pick up a basket of Memberberries and use it to block his path.

Once you do so, you'll find the Canadian border via a short cutscene. Unfortunately, there is no gameplay involved with this Easter egg once you pass the vendor. Hopefully, a separate Canada DLC will come out soon enough and fill in the gap.


Gay Fish Easter Egg

One of the side missions in The Fractured But Whole involves an infamous gay fish, which references Season 13, Episode 5 of the South Park TV show titled "Fishsticks." In the episode, the gay fish refers to the famous rapper Kanye West and his inability to understand jokes.

If you play the gay fish side quest, you'll find the Kanye-fish doesn't get the joke at the end of the mission. It's a truly hilarious Easter egg that will leave you breathless.
