I love discovering “Easter Eggs” in tech devices and Super Alexa Mode is one of my favorites! It's a nice surprise for anyone who loves retro games and wants to see Alexa's sense of humor in action.
Sure, Alexa is great for checking the weather or getting the latest news, but sometimes it's fun to mix things up and see how she responds. Asking her to tell a joke or asking strange questions can lead to some hilarious responses.
And that's where Super Alexa Mode comes in! It's one of the many “Easter Eggs” hidden within Alexa's programming. Think of it like a secret code that unlocks a special mode where Alexa talks like a video game character. It's silly, it's fun, and it's definitely worth trying out!

The code used to activate Super Alexa mode is the Konami code. This code was created by a programmer named Kazuhisa Hashimoto, who was the head developer for a popular game called Gradius on Nintendo.
While developing the game, Hashimoto thought it was too difficult, so he made a secret code to make it easier for him to play. He was going to take the code out before they sold the game, but he forgot. Other people found out about the code and started using it in other Konami and Non-Konami games, such as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, BioShock, and Tetris Effect.
