The following is a list of Easter Eggs in the original Manhunt.
Zapping Machine[edit | edit source]
At the beginning of Mouth of Madness, if you look through the glass door you can see a man strapped to an electric chair. The machine next to him reads:
‘High Tech Solid State 1500 Watt Zapping Machine. Please note: This really fucking hurts!’
Hidden Items in White Trash[edit | edit source]
A group of five Glass Bottles and a Knife are hidden together during the scene White Trash. They are located at the first locked off gate, near where you need to use a knife to cut the rope that is keeping the fence locked. The trainer is required in order for you to be able to jump there.
Beta Cash[edit | edit source]
The beta James Earl Cash can be found several times during the game.
- Inside the Darkwoods Penitentiary on an electric chair.
- On a cross like shaped tree outside of the entrance to Starkweather’s mansion.
Hidden Save Point and Painkillers[edit | edit source]
Piggsy's Corpse[edit | edit source]
Piggsy's Corpse can be seen in a abandoned building in the bonus scene Hard as Nails. The trainer is required in order for you to be able to jump there.
Several easter eggs can be found inside the apartment.
- A calendar with a photo of New York City on it. The calendar shows the month and year as being November of 2003 with a small smiley face drawn on the 19th. The 19th of November 2003 was the date Manhunt was originally released in North America.
- There is a hidden room with a pin board with various news clipping and images of the beta model for Cash.

Key[edit | edit source]
There is a second key at the end of Kill The Rabbit behind the asylum gate.
Cartoon[edit | edit source]
Once you have completed the game a short video clip plays that shows a robotic chef speaking backwards. Many suggest that the chef video is there to indicate that Lionel Starkweather has recorded over an old video that originally had a kids TV show recorded on it.
