I picked up an old hint guide I got from the front of a magazine during the N64 era. It contained a couple of little hidden things in Majora's Mask.
Easter Egg 1: One involved going to Romani Ranch at night, standing on a box near the back and looking up at the sky. You can see a horse constellation in the sky.
Easter Egg 2: If you go to the sword training house on the last day, it will be locked, but after midnight the door will mysteriously unlock to an empty house. Go to the back of the building and smash something to find a secret passage. The sword master can be found inside cowering from the impending doom.
Nice little secrets you're not likely to come across if you just play through normally. However, I doubt this is all that Majora's Mask has to hide. It's a big game with a lot of character interaction. Does anyone know of any more (aside from the Dolphin cameo, of course)?

That second one is something I'll have to definitely check out. I'm currently on a re-play-through of MM (as part of my Zelda marathon run through the entire series from start to end).
I find the game so atmospheric, and that's what makes it great I guess. You really feel that impending doom towards the latter half of the 3-day cycle.
Anyway... easter eggs and such...
1. There's that little Deku type tree at the start, but I guess that's been analysed to death before. But, for those that don't know, he's the son of the Deku butler, and your Deku mask contains his soul. Hence, butler guy is seen mourning next to the tree at the end of the game.
2. If you take that hotal room and look at the crack in the wall at 9.30pm on day 2, the apparently you hear a conversation between Anju and her mother... apparently...
3. If you use the telescope and look at the tall pillars between the observatory and Clock Town, there's a man standing on one waving his arms up and down (like those guys that you rescue from being Skulltulla's in OoT) - I can't seem to find this man without the use of the telescope... mysterious...
Nester the Lark: Here's an archive of results from the Everybody Votes channel. I found my poll question in the US English section for September 1, 2009.

nocturnal YL: Do you consider yourself to be more of a ... Romantic: 39.1% Realist: 60.9% This one, right? So… what's your own vote to that question? (I'd have picked realist.)

Nester the Lark: ^ At the time, I think I picked romantic. Not sure what I'd pick today. I feel like I'm somewhere in between.

Nester the Lark: Lately, the forum feels more like "Nester & YL's clubhouse."

nocturnal YL: Looking at the other members' last online date, I can safely say that this place is pretty much inactive by now.

Nester the Lark: Looking at an old post I wrote two years ago, I noticed I misspelled "threw" as "through," and now I'm angry at myself.

nocturnal YL: …Why am I still seeking gaming news when I have 7 games yet to complete and at least 2 more that I plan to get? (EDIT — Oh right, Ys IX has a confirmed release date. That makes at least 3 games I'll get later.)

nocturnal YL: My current plan is to play Atelier Firis DX now, which online guides suggest is long. Atelier Lydie & Suelle DX will likewise be long (longer than the original too, due to DLC, DX additions and I'll make the best items). I'll maybe play Ys Origin after.
Jun 14, 2021 10:28:43 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Not sure about what I'll play after. Another Atelier game will probably be out by then, either completing the Secret series or giving us Arland 5. Either way, I'll probably play those before going elsewhere. Dusk will have to wait for quite a bit…

Nester the Lark: Wondering if I should get Mario Golf at launch or wait a couple of months. I have so many other things to play that my gaming (and wallet) might need a little breathing room.

Nester the Lark: The problem with playing Hyrule Warriors and a modern Ys game at the same time is that even though the combat feels somewhat similar, the controls are completely different, and I get confused.

Shrikeswind: Yeah I'm here, but kinda vaguely. Sorry, I haven't had too much to say lately.

Shrikeswind: By the way, I don't know if you guys have been keeping up with OCR on YouTube, but apparently they're dropping an album for a game I grew up on, Jet Force Gemini. Really pumped; I'll post a review when they finish.

Shrikeswind: Or at least when my Top 3 from that game are on the Toobz. Just one more song to go.

Nester the Lark: I feel like I've been neglecting the forum more than usual lately. Been distracted by other things. I'll try to post something when I get the chance.
Jul 16, 2021 10:38:22 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: I don't have time to make posts. Atelier Firis DX takes forever to play. When I'm not playing, I'm in a read-only mode, reading guides and watching (unrelated) videos.
Jul 17, 2021 13:25:38 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: On that note, I'll probably make a review on the whole trilogy, so it will be a while until I talk about these games in details here. I can say Atelier Firis DX has far exceeded my expectation and has taken over Totori as my 3rd fav.
