All of these Amazon Alexa Easter Eggs can be tried on your Amazon Echo, Tap or Dot and some of which have multiple responses/replies, have a laugh with these and let me know in the comments if you have any further easter eggs!

Super Alexa is one of the original jokes which a developer programmed into Amazon line of products.
It’s actually based on what is called a “Konami Code” which is an old school cheat code by the developer’s studio who believe it or not, are called “Konami”.
If you’re old school, you’ll remember this was on many titles such as Contra, Gradius, Castlevania, Metal Gear, Dance Dance Revolution (You’ll always catch me at the arcades playing DDR) and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles!
AI assistants are great for asking fun and silly questions, you’ll find that it burns an hour with anyone who’s not familiar with these devices, as a gamer myself I instantly flocked to the internet to share this out and about with everyone on Twitter and Facebook!
To confirm, this little joke doesn’t actually improve Alexa’s performance! This was simply a little nod towards the game and meme community who relish this humour.
The command is simply referring to the buttons you would press on the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) controllers in specific games to enable cheats or have a fun little trick. (source)
However, I may look into breaking her open and overclocking in the future in my DIY blogs!
