GioGio's Bizarre Adventure: Golden Whirlwind
The game was originally going to have an international release, but the heavy usage real-life musical names for certain characters and a number of their "Stands" (such as Giorno Giovanna's "Gold Expeience", Narancia Ghirga's "Aerosmith" and Trish Una's "SpiceGirl") would have caused copyright problems in the west. Series creator Hirohiko Araki refused to change any of the names in order to avoid lawsuits, so the game was ultimately slated for a Japan-only release.
Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U

Contributed by G-Haven
There are a number of references to the Star Trek series in the game;

• A Goblin Doctor known as "Doc" found in Area 52 will say "Damnit Boots, I'm a doctor not a priest!" after turning in the quest "That Little Extra Kick." This is in reference to Dr. McCoy from Star Trek :The Original Series.
• Also in Area 52 are several Goblin NPCs working on a rocket, all wearing Gold Shirts and Black pants, in reference to the Engineering crews of Star Trek: The Next Generation. Chief Engineer "Trep" is in reference to Chief Engineer Charles "Trip" Tucker from Star Trek: Enterprise. "Trep" also has a quest named "Report to Engineering" in which the player must deliver Etherlithium Matrix Crystals to him, referencing the Dilithium Matrix Crystals which regulates the anti-matter flow for the ships in the Star Trek series.
• In the Exodar Holographic Emitters, there are five NPCs by the names of Curzon, Tobin, Torias, Emony, and Audrid. All five of these are in reference to Dax's previous hosts from Star Trek: Deep Space Nine.
• The camp "Bash'ir Landing" may be another reference to Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, namely to Julian Bashir the Chief Medical Officer of Deep Space Nine.
• Warden Treelos, a lone-surviving Druid near Cenarion Thicket will randomly yell "There are four lights!" This is a reference to Captain Picard from Star Trek: The Next Generation, specifically from the two-part episode Chain of Command.
• In Gadgetzan, there is a Gnome Engineer wearing a gold shirt and black pants with the name "Jhordy Lapforge", in reference to Geordi La Forge from Star Trek:The Next Generation.
• Another gold-and-black Gnome Engineer can be found in Blade's Edge Mountains by the name of Smiles O'Byron, in reference to Chief Miles "Smiley" O'Brien from both Star Trek:The Next Generation and Star Trek:Deep Space Nine. The NPC even specializes in Transporters, much like the Star Trek equivalent did.
• In Stormwind City, there is an NPC by the name of Lenny "Fingers" McCoy, in reference to Dr. Leonard "Bones" McCoy from Star Trek:The Original Series.
• Nogg's Machine Shop found in Orgrimmar is named after the Engineer-savant Ferengi called Nogg, from Star Trek: Deep Space Nine.
• Two Goblins named Scooty and Sprock are in reference to Montgomery "Scotty" Scott and Spock both from Star Trek: The Original Series. Scooty in particular wears a white shirt and black vest, much like what Scotty wore in his later years.

Tales of Phantasia
The original name of the game was simply "Tale Phantasia" and the developer was originally Wolfteam, creators of El Viento. The game was originally based off of programmer Yoshiharu Gotanda's unpublished novel, also called "Tale Phantasia".

The main cast originally had much different designs that ended up changed late in development when it was decided to have the characters designed by manga arist Kosuke Fujishima. The change was so late in development that the SNES version's character sprites are still based off of the original concept designs (i.e Mint looking far younger and wearing blue as opposed to her more mature look, wearing white in her current design.)

Brambart was also originally planned to be playable.
Tales of Phantasia
The original SNES version of the game did not feature Suzu Fujibayashi as a playable character, lacked Dhaos' third form and had absolutely no special artes for Chester.
Tales of Phantasia
In the PSX version of the game, Lilith Aileron, Stahn's sister from Tales of Destiny can be battled in the game's coliseum. When beaten, she gives the player the "S.D" weapon, AKA "Swordian Dymlos", Stahn's main weapon/talking sword from the same game.

This weapon also allows Cless to use the "Final Fury" arte as well.
Sleeping Dogs

In the ending of the Sleeping Dogs DLC, "Nightmare in North Point", Not Ping Spoiler:agrees to finish her date with Wei Shen. As they walk away from the cemetery, she looks at the player with flashing light blue eyes and the laughter of the antagonist, Smiley Cat, is heard. This is a nod to Michael Jackson's "Thriller", in which Michael takes his girlfriend home and then looks at the audience with his werewolf eyes along with the laughter of the song's scary narrator being heard in the background.

The patriots had named Raiden after the plane and later let him know that, just like his name, he was simply a weapon, a tool to be disposed of once it completed its purpose.
