A virtual Easter egg is a hidden message or feature in an object such as a movie, book, CD, DVD, computer program, or video game. The term draws a parallel with the custom of the Easter egg hunt observed in many western nations.

Usually, such Easter eggs come in the form of a hidden character, scene or reference to something else outside the subjects area (for example a tribute to a series that is hidden in a secret area). Due to legal reasons, many companies invoked strict rules about Easter eggs, not only for copyright reasons but also due to the problems having something in the game that has not been announced openly.

The Different Kinds of Easter Eggs[edit | edit source]

Oda's name and "ONEPIECE" can be found on the spines of the books.

Oda is renowned for featuring many different kinds of Easter eggs in One Piece. The most famous and frequently seen kind of easter eggs are the joke characters (also known as easter egg characters). The most notable joke character is Pandaman who appears throughout the series, in several different guises and incarnations. Other kinds of easter eggs are the fictional brands like Doskoi Panda and Criminal, but also the slight references to Oda himself seen for instance on spines of books.

Easter Eggs on Volume Inside Covers (Back)[edit | edit source]

On Volumes 25-70 (with the exception of Volumes 63 and 64), there is a hidden easter egg series that follows the adventure of Pandaman.

The inside back covers of volumes 36-38 are blank after Pandaman gets eaten by a large fish on the inside back cover of Volume 35. However, a close-up shot of Pandaman on the inside front cover of Volume 38 (shown above) reveals that Pandaman had simply been underwater the whole time, hence proving that the easter egg series had been going on in these volumes despite no easter eggs being depicted on the inside back covers. Pandaman visibly returns on the inside back cover of Volume 39.

Other[edit | edit source]

  • Pandaman's face (possibly Pandawoman's) replaces Mansherry's on the alternate spine of Volume 78.
  • That is also the case on the inside cover of Volume 82 with Vivi's.
