Nested in among flavor text, minion quotes and even the Finding Opponent screen, Hearthstone is full of hidden references, waiting like easter eggs to be found by sharp-eyed (or -eared) players. These references transcend the boundaries of the game's lore, touching on real life culture ranging from well-known films and music to popular memes within the Hearthstone community and beyond.
The list of in-game references within Hearthstone is extensive, and this page represents a work-in-progress attempt to compile them in one place. For references not listed here, see individual card pages and Trivia sections.
