Easter Eggs You Missed In Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World: The Game

Remember Scott Pilgrim vs. The World? It was a totally awesome movie from the last decade that surprisingly bombed at the box office. Not only is it one of the most rewatchable comedy movies ever made, but it happened to have a great video game port worth playing as well.


Unfortunately, for a long time, you couldn't play Scott Pilgrim vs. the World: The Game because licensing complications took it off the digital market, and it never saw a physical release. The good news is it recently returned. Not only can it be purchased digitally again, but a physical port is coming to the Nintendo Switch and PS4 courtesy of Limited Run Games.

If you missed out on Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game the first time around, now is your chance. Though it's not the longest game out there, alternate endings, crazy cheat codes, and magnificent Easter eggs will keep you coming back for more.

In honor of its return to the small screen, here are some Easter eggs you missed in Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game.


Saving the animals

When Scott enters Ramona's backyard in Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game, he fights her fourth evil ex, Roxanne. You'll notice during the fight that she is able to alter her form — whether it's duplicating herself or turning into a log. It's when you defeat Roxanne, however, that her transformation skills get downright referential.


Following her K.O., she splits in half and turns into a bunch of adorable piggies, birds, and bunnies. You know what other video game series contains levels that end with little cute animals? Think Sonic the Hedgehog. There is one key difference, however. Instead of setting the animals free from captivity, which is the blue blur's objective, Scott collects them for cash. 

It's still a little worrisome that Scott is getting money for gathering up these innocent creatures. Whatever the case may be, fans of Sonic the Hedgehog are sure to be pleased by this little Easter egg. Just keep your fingers crossed that those piggies don't go to market!

A Mega Man 2 ending

Remember the iconic opening of Mega Man 2? That incredibly memorable music playing over an image of purple and pink skyscrapers. An even taller structure stands in the foreground, and the camera climbs its way to the top to reveal the heroic Mega Man standing tall and proud.


While it isn't quite as dramatic as the setup for Mega Man 2, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game has an ending sequence that looks to be a nod to the Blue Bomber's famous opening scene. Though it lacks the same musical accompaniment, it features Scott at the top of the tallest building, which is framed in the foreground with smaller buildings behind. 

Of course, there are a few key differences. For one, he's inside of the building, instead of on top. Also, it's daytime and you see a rainbow appear. Despite these details, it's very likely that the devs were thinking Mega Man when designing the game's end.

Something sounds familiar

Scott Pilgrim vs. The World is a movie that plays out like a video game. A video game adaptation of such a movie is a no-brainer, however, it's not just gaming that's an integral part of Scott Pilgrim. Music is another key ingredient to this story, which is why it's very appropriate that the soundtrack is peppered with little Easter eggs.


Christian Stridiron of Screen Rant pointed out a few examples. One track on the Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game soundtrack is called "Skate or Live," which is clearly a play on the classic NES title Skate or Die! Another track, "Twin Dragons," is very likely a reference to Double Dragon.

Another musical cue you may recognize plays right before Scott faces Envy and Lynette. As Stridiron suggested, the tune is highly reminiscent of the jingle that kicks off your final 100 "seconds" in Super Mario Bros. These are just a few examples of the musical Easter eggs you'll find in Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game.
