What about the "Hell Valley Sky Trees" of Super Mario Galaxy 2? Talk about out of place.

# 10 - Creepy, but can't find video for it, unfortunately.
# 9 - Wouldn't someone have asked a S.E employee about this?
# 5 - Oddly enough, some patch logs for Minecraft say "removed Herobrine".

This list/article was fantastic btw, a lot of them I never knew about.

The Minecraft patch notes that said "removed Herobrine" were just in-jokes by the devs. Herobrine was never actually in the game, not counting fan-made mods and such.

Yeah, I had a feeling that was the case, because my little cousin was showing me that the "removed Herobrine" line appeared about 3 times, in various patches.
