South Park: The Fractured But Whole is stuffed with easter eggs and clever references to some of the show’s classic episodes, but some of these are hidden rather well. For those that would like to see some of the best easter eggs in South Park: The Fractured But Whole, we’ve put together this guide to help them on their journey.
Please note that while these are arguably the most relevant easter eggs in the game, it’s possible there are more to be discovered. After all, South Park: The Fractured But Whole is like a love letter to the TV series it’s based on, and as a result, has plenty of nods that only the most hardcore fans of the show will recognize.
Without further ado, here are the best easter eggs in South Park: The Fractured But Whole and where to find them.
One of the most memorable moments from South Park: The Stick of Truth is when players travel to Canada, which looks like a classic JRPG overworld. Unfortunately, Canada is not accessible in South Park: The Fractured But Whole, and it’s because of the massive wall Canadians have built to keep out Americans.
Players can actually see the huge wall for themselves, though it’s only accessible late in the game. Once players have achieved the TimeFart ability that allows them to pause time, they can get by the farmer located at the Memberberry plantation in the far right corner of town. Simply pause time and then walk around the farmer, following the path northward to the Canadian border.
This is one of the more obscure easter eggs in the game, but it’s worth pointing out nevertheless. For those that don’t know, Damien is the demonic son of Satan, who moved to South Park in the show’s first season from the seventh layer of Hell (no, not New Jersey). While Satan went on to have a rather prominent role in the show as well as the feature film South Park: Bigger, Longer, and Uncut, Damien sort of fell off the face of the Earth, relegated to occasional cameos and never seen in a speaking role again.
That is, until South Park: The Stick of Truth, which allowed players to find Damien ripping on Rob Schneider at the local movie theater. Unfortunately, Damien is nowhere to be found in South Park: The Fractured But Whole, but there is a “Missing” poster for him on the bulletin boards in town, indicating that this rather obscure character has left town for good, perhaps to live with his father in Hell.
Morgan Freeman has made a number of appearances on South Park over the years, and also played a role in South Park: The Stick of Truth. The heavenly-voiced actor returns in South Park: The Fractured But Whole as the owner and operator of Freeman’s Tacos, a shop that sells various crafting items to players.
As it turns out, players can actually fight Morgan Freeman in the game by going behind the counter and hitting him three times in a row. However, we don’t advise actually doing this until players have over 800 Might and are done with all the other quests. Morgan Freeman is by far the most difficult enemy in the entire game, and will only be defeated by those that have fully mastered it.
Mr. Hankey the Christmas Poo, everyone’s favorite holiday hero, is back for South Park: The Fractured But Whole, albeit in a reduced role compared to his Stick of Truth appearance. Both Mr. Hankey and his alcoholic wife can be found in South Park, and in both instances, players have to find them by using Toolshed’s Sandblaster ability on pipes.
Mr. Hankey can be found in the women’s restroom of the South Park Community Center. Players will notice that the toilet here is covered in a massive pile of feces, but it can be blown away using the Sandblaster ability. Simply move the trashcan, destroy the glowing portion of wall, and then send the New Kid’s powerful farts through the pipes. The force of the New Kid’s farts will destroy the pile of dung, freeing Mr. Hankey in the process.
After taking a selfie with Mr. Hankey, players may also want to see what his alcoholic wife is up to. Mrs. Hankey is found in a similar manner as Mr. Hankey, but this time players have to unclog the toilet at Stan’s house. The pipe they need to use the Sandblaster on is found in the upstairs hallway at Stan’s house, though we must warn that the resulting mess from unclogging the Marsh’s toilet is not for the squeamish.
South Park: The Fractured But Whole is typically a 10-15 hour adventure, unless of course players raise the difficulty by playing as a black character, in which case it will likely take even longer to beat. However, it’s actually possible to “beat” the game and see its end credits within minutes.
In South Park: The Fractured But Whole, players have the option to skip most cut-scenes. However, if players try to skip the opening scenes and credits, they will be chastised for doing so. Try to skip the opening credits too many times, and the game will give in, taking players directly to its secret ending and end credits sequence.
Speaking of the game criticizing players, South Park: The Fractured But Whole also rips into fans if they attempt to “cheat” by looking up the codes to the various locked doors in town. If players input a code without first finding the document that reveals it to them, Cartman will appear dressed New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick, yelling at players for not playing the game properly.
It’s possible that there are even more easter eggs hidden in South Park: The Fractured But Whole that have yet to be discovered, and the upcoming Casa Bonita DLC pack will likely feature some secrets of its own. For now, though, these are the biggest easter eggs fans have discovered so far in the game.
South Park: The Fractured But Whole is available now for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
