Twisted Metal: Black Easter Egg - Minion's Secret Message
First, you must make sure you have unlocked Minion. To do this you have to beat the game with every character including the hidden ones (Yellow Jacket, Warthog, Axel, and Manslaughter). When this is done you will see a movie of the destroyed pieces of Minion coming back together confirming that he is unlocked.
Now start a new single player game using Minion for your character (BTW, you can use the circle button to zoom in on the drivers' faces while you're selecting them and Minion's is interesting). During the beginning of each level there will be a loading screen with a bunch of numbers on it (all of the other characters have words instead). If you translate these numbers using the system of A=1, B=2, C=3 etc. you can translate hidden messages. This can be done for every level.
Also, I found it interesting that for the last level his message is something like: In the real world my name is Marcus Kane. This is most likely a reference to the character named Marcus Kane who drives the car "Roadkill" in Twisted Metal 2. In Roadkill's ending movie, when you beat the game with him, he wakes up from a coma to realize that the entire time he was dreaming (this probably has something to do with the "in the real world" part of Minion's message).
And, in the original Twisted Metal game the drivers of the cars "Yellow Jacket" and "Sweet Tooth" are driven by characters named Charlie Kane and Needles Kane. In the original Twisted Metal, Charlie and Needles are related to each other but I don't know if this has anything to do with Marcus Kane (I just thought I'd throw that last part in, incase anybody else has some input on this).
