This page is out of date (v1.0.1).

This page contains all current and past Easter Eggs implemented into Melvor Idle.

Amulet of Calculated Promotion

The Amulet of Calculated Promotion (item).svg Amulet of Calculated Promotion was added in the Alpha v0.12 update and was the first Easter egg item to be added to the game. Twitch streamer witwix has promoted Melvor Idle on his stream by discussing the game with his community, leading to an increase in active players. The amulet was added as a response by the developer to show his appreciation for this promotion. The amulet is obtainable by name changing to "witwix" (case sensitive) and opening the Chest of Witwix (item).svg Chest of Witwix, which is dropped by Leech (monster).svg Leeches. The chest will always contain the Amulet of Calculated Promotion if the player's character name is witwix.

Clue Chasers Insignia

Bank layout to obtain Clue Chasers Insignia.

The Clue Chasers Insignia (item).svg Clue Chasers Insignia was added in the Alpha v0.14 update and was teased with a clue which requires metagaming to solve. The clue for how to obtain the amulet was left in the patch notes:

"The Numbers, mason, What do they mean?!"

The clue is a red herring reference to a cutscene from the game Call of Duty: Black Ops. The numbers important for solving the clue come from the TV show Lost, which uses the numbers 4, 8, 15, 16, 23, and 42, as a part of the show's mythology. The numbers correspond to the 'item ID' of items in Melvor Idle, 4 is Maple Logs, 8 is Redwood Logs, 15 is Raw Swordfish, 16 is Raw Crab, 23 is Herring, and 42 is Burnt Cave Fish. These items must be manually placed in the aforementioned order, so that the first 6 slots of the Bank contain them. The items must also have a specific quantity, which is discovered by reversing the number sequence. The correct order and quantity of items is shown below.

42 Maple Logs (item).svg Maple Logs, 23 Redwood Logs (item).svg Redwood Logs, 16 Raw Swordfish (item).svg Raw Swordfish, 15 Raw Crab (item).svg Raw Crab, 8 Herring (item).svg Herring, 4 Burnt Cave Fish (item).svg Burnt Cave Fish.

Once the items have been moved to the first 6 slots within the leftmost tab of the Bank in the correct order and quantity, the Clue Chasers Insignia will be automatically awarded. If the amulet is not awarded immediately, the player should swap two of the items and then swap them back into the correct order. If there is already a Clue Chasers Insignia in the bank, or if the order/quantity of items is wrong, the amulet will not be awarded. If the amulet is equipped, sold or lost, it can be obtained again using the same method.


Typing "8" into the Bank search bar will add a 8 (item).svg 8 to the player's Bank. On use, it has an 1/8 chance to add 8 new 8's to the bank, and has a sell value of 8. This Easter egg was added in the Alpha v0.15 update.


"69(lol)" is a Farming easter egg where "(lol)" is added next to every instance of 69 appearing on the Farming (skill).svg Farming page. Whenever any planted seed has 69 minutes remaining until grown, the information tile will read "Time Left: About 69(lol) mins" remaining. This Easter egg was added in the Alpha v0.12 update, which made changes to the Farming UI.

Yep, still undefined

The Slayer Cowl (Basic) (item).svg Slayer Cowl (Basic) had a description of "Yep, still undefined". This is due to a bug where the description was "undefined" for a period of time, but after the developer fixed it, the bug returned and so did the bug reports. In response, the developer decided to just change the item description to "Yep, still undefined" after that.

This description was replaced with a description of the item's passive effect as part of the Alpha v0.18.0 update.

Sell x6,969M

Prior to the Bank rework introduced in Alpha v0.17.0, changing the amount to "ALL" when selling items from the Bank would set the sell amount to 6,969M by default.


When changing the player's username, leaving the "New Desired Username" box blank will result in having the name "Insubordinate". This also occurs when creating a new game, and not setting a username.


Prior to patch version Alpha v0.13, some of the creatures were erroneously named Goblin, which is a creature from European folklore, used most commonly in fantasy settings today. Patch Alpha v0.13 changed all creatures named Goblin to Golbin, which is the developer's unique spin on the Goblin archetype.

Golden Golbin

The Golden Golbin (pet).svg Golden Golbin is a pet that can only be obtained by getting a Golbin (monster).svg Golbin kill count of 42069.


Using "wherearemylemons" to add Lemons to the bank.

Typing "wherearemylemons" into the Bank search bar will add a Lemon to the player's Bank. Lemon (item).jpg Lemon, Lemons (item).jpg Lemons, and Lemonade (item).jpg Lemonade are joke items added in the April Fools 2020 Event, patch v0.14.69.


Lemon (item).jpg Lemon is an Easter Egg item which was previously given to the player in place of an Aorpheats Signet Ring (item).svg Aorpheats Signet Ring piece, when the requirement of wearing a Gold Topaz Ring (item).svg Gold Topaz Ring was not met. This was changed to instead drop a Gold Topaz Ring in Alpha v0.16.3. See Signet Ring Half (a) (item).svg Signet Ring Half (a) and Signet Ring Half (b) (item).svg Signet Ring Half (b) for more details on how to find the Aorpheats Signet Ring.

Monster and Item Names

A possible early iteration of the art for Malcs, the Guardian of Melvor.

Malcs, the Guardian of Melvor, is a combat level 677 dungeon boss named after the developer of the game. Prat, the Protector of Secrets is a combat level 360 dungeon monster named after the "artist", writer, and Discord moderator of the game, Prat. The Cape of Prat is also named after Prat, with the flavour text, "You're more accurate when you're naked." The text is purely for flavour and has no mechanical impact. The text is a reference to an in-joke between the developer and Prat.

Pet Names

Many of the pets in the game are named after characters from popular culture or individuals/real-life pets.

Wandering Bard

The Wandering Bard (monster).svg Wandering Bard was introduced in the Alpha v0.18.0 update, and was described in the changelog as "A Hidden Easter Egg Monster". This monster cannot be encountered normally, as it does not appear within any Combat Area, Slayer Area, or Dungeon. Instead this monster may only be encountered randomly when the player obtains a new normal tier Slayer (skill).svg Slayer task.

Easter Egg

Easter Egg (item).svg Easter Egg is an item that was introduced during the Alpha v0.19.2 update, and could be obtained by successfully defeating a Chicken (monster).svg Chicken in Chaos.svg Chaos mode. In Chaos mode, Chickens always performed an unavoidable attack which would instantly kill the player, and so the only way to defeat Chickens was to obtain enough attack speed reduction (via the Chaos mode item corruption mechanic) such that the player's attack would occur before the Chicken could attack. Once defeated, an Easter Egg (item).svg Easter Egg would be added to the player's bank.

The Easter Egg (item).svg Easter Egg could only be legitimately obtained with a Chaos.svg Chaos mode character, and as of Alpha v0.21 cannot be obtained at all.

Cool Glasses

Cool Glasses (item).png Cool Glasses were introduced as part of the Alpha v0.21 update, in which a rewrite of combat (including support for the long-awaited offline combat) was introduced. The glasses are a tribute to the developer of the combat rewrite, Coolrox95.

The Cool Glasses may be obtained by petting the Cool Rock (pet).svg Cool Rock pet 95 times.

Red Herring

Red Herring (item).svg Red Herring was originally added as part of the Alpha v0.21 update, although could not be legitimately obtained until Alpha v0.22. This was done in order to reserve the item ID 1,000 for this item, making it the 1,001st item added to the game.

To obtain the Red Herring, the player must first meet all of the following requirements:

Once the requirements are met, the Red Herring will have a 1-in-10,000 (or 0.01%) chance of dropping while fishing for Raw Herring (item).svg Raw Herring.

Abnormal Log

Abnormal Log (item).svg Abnormal Log was originally added as part of the Alpha v0.21 update, although could not be legitimately obtained until Alpha v0.22. This was done in order to reserve the item ID 999 for this item, making it the 1,000th item added to the game.

To obtain the Abnormal Log, the player must first meet all of the following requirements:

Once the requirements are met, the Abnormal Log will have a 1-in-10,000 (or 0.01%) chance of dropping while pickpocketing the Lumberjack (thieving).svg Lumberjack.
