Not sure how to ask this tactfully...

I broke out Knights of the Round on my SNES console recently, and that reminded me of something I'd forgotten from years ago. All animal sprites are Disneyfied, as is common practice to this day...with the sole exception of the Mad Tiger enemy, whose "stunned" frame reveals anatomically correct male organs. Since said parts don't appear in any of the enemy's other frames, and the frame usually isn't on-screen for long, it seems likely this either was an easter egg or something an artist snuck in to the arcade version (that was also left in, or at least not caught, in ports). Realistic animals don't justify the red "vapors" banner, but as there's no confirmation it's an easter egg I still wasn't sure it belonged on the page (or was even wanted on the page) and wanted a second opinion from someone more experienced.

In my opinion, it doesn't belong here because it's not unused and not really an easter egg since it's not a secret that tigers have testicles. It's an interesting trivia bit, although it's not the only time there has been "nudity" on SNES games and they don't get mentioned here (such as the Secret of Mana nude cherub).

Good point - I had forgotten about the cherub (and the other instances such as the dryad). I hadn’t considered that the definition of an Easter egg requires it to be unused in the normal course of a game: that definition clearly precludes this. And this wouldn’t even qualify as nudity - just an artist being accurate. So trivia it is. Thanks for clarifying! Jtrevor99 (talk) 16:54, 17 June 2022 (UTC)
