'Easter Eggs are hidden references, inside jokes or clues placed in-game by the development team. They may reference movies, development team members, beta testers, and community members, among others. These were first implemented in Classic WolfQuest as part of the Lost River (Classic) ame world, which currently holds the highest number of references and jokes.
Easter Eggs which only appear seasonally, often in correlation to real-world holidays and events.
Recurring seasonal decorations activated during seasonal events.

Development Team References (Classic)
Various references to the Development Team, which is composed of several Eduweb and Minnesota Zoo employees; most (but not all) of whom are WolfQuest Team Members. This also includes the Community Team and volunteers such as moderators and beta testers among other special mentions.
Beta Tester References (Classic)
During extensive play-testing, the following references pay homage to members of the closed beta testing team and participants from the community moderator team.
Cinema Art (Classic)
Clean rip of the cinema building's Easter eggs. The following are showcased:
- In Amethyst Mountain, there is a dead or barren tree found in a clearing not far from the campfire human impact. This is based on a real tree that has supposedly been struck by lightning.
- This same tree received the name "moon" tree by some earlier players of the game.
- The "bunny flower" in Amethyst Mountain is also believed to be an easter egg, due to the change of music that occurs when the player is near it. This has not been confirmed, even when the question was directed at Cana.
- Prior to the 29-Feb-2016 patch, Beary Angry and Don't Feed the Bears were not initially featured posters shown on the cinema.
- SlothQuest is likely a reference to a joke Michelle made when it was suggested that they make another AnimalQuest game in the future.
- The black cat that appears in Lost River is a reference to one or both of Susan and Dave's cats, Sophie and Stuart, as shown by the WolfQuest Team via social media- Facebook • Twitter • Instagram
- The bugged moose occupying the BCE Facility grounds is not a bug. She is fully intended.
- A small selection of buildings in Lost River have exact duplicates.
- Geo Schaller has two buildings. One can be found adjacent to Kip's Arcade, while the other is directly north-west of Dave's Bowl-o-Rama.
- Tommi Hortanna's building can be found in two locations in Downtown. One can be found with the moderator and beta references closest to Hank's Ditch and sits adjacent to Wagner's Laundry. The other can be found directly north-west of Dave's Bowl-o-Rama.
- Steve Wagner's building can be found in two locations in Downtown. One can be found with the moderator and beta references closest to Hank's Ditch and sits adjacent to Tommi's Household Goods. The other can be found directly north-west of Dave's Bowl-o-Rama.
- Nagel Market can be found in two locations in Downtown. One sits close to Hank's Ditch beside the $$$tore building. To the north, slightly north-west of the first building, the other can be found close to Tank Town.
- The $$$tore is another duplicated building in Downtown. One can be found closest to the moderator and beta references to the left of Wagner's Laundry, while the other can be found across the road from Town Hall.
- The skeleton and ghost are the first holiday decorations to emit audio.
- It is likely that Dave and Susan provided their voices to each respective prop.
