Most fans know Peter Griffin as the main protagonist of the popular adult animated series Family Guy. His wife, Lois Griffin, and his children, Stewie, Meg and Chris Griffin also play major lead roles on the sitcom. Furthermore, Peter also harbors a clever dog name, Brian.

In fact, Fortnite has a long-running unofficial connection to Family Guy, which started in 2021. Epic Games decided to troll Fortnite data miners by adding a gif related to the series in the game files. Unsurprisingly, the data miners fell for the trap and the company’s motive was later revealed by an informant.
