E2 is filled with oddities. Mostly the noders. But there are also a lot of nodes that deserve special acknowledgment; some of these are run-of-the-mill superdocs and features, but some of them are virtually unknown and unused. Naturally, there is no ultimate list of Easter eggs, as the whole point of Easter eggs is that you have to search to find them. But here are a few of the better known ones to whet your appetite.

Podcaster: The E2 podcast. Requests go to Read Me.

And that's just the nodes. There are also some imaginative things that can be done with the /egg command, and if you play around with the /roll command in the chatbox you can get some interesting effects. There are more levels than you might expect at The Everything2 Voting/Experience System. And there are all kinds of interesting bits embedded in the site's code.

If you've found something interesting that you think deserves to be common knowledge, let me know and I'll add it. But keep the coolest ones to yourself -- there need to be a few surprises left for people to dig up on their own.

* Some of these may be Editor-only features. If you can't see a given node, /msg me, and I'll put it in italics.

Everything2 Easter Eggs has had a long history, as people have over time found easter eggs, posted them, and then had their posts assimilated into ever larger and more comprehensive lists. While many of these noders have been lost in the depths of time, ariels and yclept were the most recent to have writeups here, and yclept had the honor of making the first true Easter Egg Metanode, which this writeup humbly replaces.
