If the player equips the Ring of Sincere Prayer, the animation for casting Miracles changes from the default fists held together to the newer both hands open and thrown above the head. This pose reappeared in the next From Software game Dark Souls as the ever popular "Praise the Sun!" gesture.
The pose itself was almost never included in Demon's Souls, as according to director Hidetaka Miyazaki "When I presented the game to the rest of the company I showed them that pose and one of the higher ups told me it just wasn't cool enough. Of course I told him I'd get rid of it but I secretly kept it in the game."

A lot of the game was inspired by the anime Casshern, with a heavy emphasis on speed for gameplay. The background visuals were initially influenced by the movie Tristan + Isolde, but the staff ended up using a personal style.
Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare
On the campaign level "Throttle", it's possible to find an RPG Launcher by climbing to the top of a column and onto a glitched part of a building. The building can be located behind one of the turrets that the player needs to destroy. The RPG appears to be a leftover asset from previous Call of Duty titles, and was likely left by a developer by accident.
Tekken Tag Tournament 2
According to Katsuhiro Harada, he and his team wanted the Mushroom Battle mode to have many different items, similar to the variety of items in the Mario Kart series. However, Nintendo believed that this would've been too much of an extension to the game's standard gameplay, and so the plan never followed through.
