Easter eggs are unexpected or undocumented features found within media, such as video games, movies, and television series, and are included as bonuses or references to something else. Listed here are the numerous easter eggs found throughout the InFamous series.
- In The Neon District, there is a sign outside the cinema saying "Sly 4" and another one for "Honor Among Thieves" which is another Sly Cooper title. The Sly 4 sign was most likely a joke at the time it was put into the game, as Sly 4 wasn't announced until Sanzaru announced it in the Sly Collection, which was released in 2010. There is also a joke movie poster for a fictional movie called "Alone In The House Of Blood," which has rather unfavorable reviews for it on the poster. This was likely a poke at the amount of "terrible" horror movies being released for the time.
- Sly Cooper
- The Chinese drinks on the card table on Zeke's roof in the Neon District have the Panda King's face on them. The Panda King is a character from Sly Cooper, another game series by Sucker Punch, the developer of this game.
- Cole's backpack has a Sly Cooper Logo on it. This is also featured in InFamous 2.
- There is a trophy named "You're so Sly."
- While Cole stretches out his powers, Zeke Dunbar can be seen reading Atomic Lead, a comic book published by Sucker Punch.
- There is a cafe named Atomic Lead Cafe. This is a reference to Atomic Leads.
- There is an ad for Mid-Life Cycles. This is a direct reference to the actual market, but also a play on the term "mid-life crisis".
- There is an ad for the Empire City Airlines with the headline, "Come fly with me." This is a reference to the song by Frank Sinatra.

- The iconic "Lincoln's Toe Tuck" appears in-game.
- On the TVs in the city, an advert sometimes plays, saying "another social networking site. That's all we offer. Nothing more, nothing less. That's all we have to offer. Delusionbook."
