Rapidshare is the 12th most popular site on the web according to Alexa, and Megaupload isn't far behind at 14th place. So it's only fitting that a search engine be devoted solely to unearthing the files that have been stored on these two services.
That service is FileCrop, which claims to have more than two million Rapidshare and Megaupload links stored in its index with more added regularly. It also searches 4Shared and Badongo.
For example, after doing a search for "Halo 3", FileCrop returns 404 results arranged in a familiar Windows Explorer-esque table. The table helpfully shows you what type of files you're dealing with (RAR, MP3, JPG, etc.) and also tells you their size and where they're being stored.
You can also do advanced searches and limit your search to specific file hosting sites as well as file sizes.
