Easter Eggs and references in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla are plenty but only those with a keen eye will be able to spot them, some characters have peculiar names while there are homages too directed at other RPG games of the past. If you’ve wanted to know about Valhalla Easter Eggs but still haven’t been able to find them, we recommend reading this guide until the end.
Best Easter Eggs and References In Assassin’s Creed Valhalla
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla has some of the best easter eggs and references that you can find, all plucked out of pop culture that has defined England not only as a historical place but a place of culture and diversity as well.
Dark Souls Bonfire
Dark Souls has been one of the best RPG adventures in recent years and fans have been obsessing over the difficulty and story of the game. It is certain that Dark Souls had a big influence on the developers of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla as they’ve added a small homage to the hugely popular franchise.
To find the Dark Souls Bonfire in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, all you have to do is travel to Mercia and get to the Ratae Bureau of the hidden ones. Just Southwest of it, you should be able to see an old and destroyed castle. Inside this place, you will get to see the Dark Souls Homage where a bonfire is lit with a sword embedded in it.

Lord Voldemort’s Horcruxes Easter Egg
While most of the game is set in England, the developers at Ubisoft couldn’t miss out on one of England’s biggest treasures and that is Harry Potter. You can find tiny tidbits about Harry Potter and his lore in Assassin’s Creed but nothing comes close to being as clear as all the Horcruxes being listed one below the other.
The heading of this mysterious page simply says, Stange List, but we’ve all been die-hard fans of Harry Potter to miss out on this one. This reference to Harry Potter has been our favorite outside Rowling’s works.
The thing that has crippled the world to a complete stop has made its way into the game. If you check out of the Animus and go to the laptop, you will find an email sent by Layla to Remy stating she does not have Covid and is isolating herself. This was a great little easter egg in our opinion.
It is a neat little thing that brings more realism to the game while keeping it up to date. While we’re all waiting for a vaccine, maybe there will be more about Covid in the coming DLCs or the next installment of Assassin’s Creed.
The band Prodigy of Essex England has a cameo with a character named after their lead singer Keith can be found near the Ruins in Essexe in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. While Electronica was far from being discovered during the Viking Era, Keith does sing a song titled, “Smack My Bishop“.
The developers at Ubisoft have carefully paid attention to every detail and have added elements that even casual fans of the franchise would love to see. This addition also makes one thing clear that the song Omen was trying to let us know about their involvement in the series even before Assassin’s Creed franchise begun.
This odd and amazing easter egg and references took us by surprise and when the song started playing, we could not help by chime in.
Game of Thrones Easter Egg
Most of the Game of Thrones was set in a land similar to England and it goes without saying that such a popular show would have a tiny reference in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. While though you cannot find the Red Keep or Winterfell, you can visit the Sky Prison that Tyrion Lannister was kept in.
The resemblance is uncanny and you cannot miss it in the game. It is a fun little nod to the world popular series and you can even read Tyrion’s dialogue written on a paper.
Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild
For anyone who’s played Breath of the Wild, you’ve known how ruthless and unforgiving the chickens in the game can be. They will travel to the ends of the earth to take their revenge on you and the same can be seen in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla.
If you happen to attack a single chicken, then a flock will descend down upon you and start attacking. Although they barely do enough damage to matter in the game. The relentlessness of these chickens has to be a reference to Legend of Zelda.
One Punch Man
One Punch Man is probably one of the biggest attractions in the anime world and we sort of have a character similar to him in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. Simply named as the Walloper, you will find a fellow Norse warrior in his retirement burdened by his title.
While the comparisons are true when you see him punch you, with one swift punch, the walloper can take half of Eivor’s health and cause serious damage. He surely looks like someone you’re not supposed to mess with.
Also wears a shade of Yellow, just to add more fuel to the fire.
Lord of The Rings
While LOTR has been in pop culture for over 50 years, we see J.R.R. Tolkien’s work get a reference in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla as well. In your travels, you will come across a Norse man who will ask you to get his lost arm ring from the ship’s wreckage.
Just as you get the arm ring out of the water, you can hear Eivor refer to the ring as “One worthy of a King”. This is a direct reference to the LOTR series where the one ring has to be destroyed. We’ve had tons of fun hearing this over and over again and are glad.
While this list is far from being complete, we’re still on the hunt for new Easter Eggs in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. Make sure to check out Gamer Tweak for more info about all the easter eggs and crazy references in the game.
