Juri Han from Street Fighter IV was inspired by Jolyne Kujo/Cujoh from the manga series JoJo's Bizarre Adventure, aspects of Juri's design, such as her hair and chestwear, are resmincent of Jolyne. Along with this, Juri has a spider motif and cleaves a butterfly in her official artwork, while Jolyne has a butterfly motif and spiderweb-patterned clothes, her Stand also turns her body into threads and webs. Both characters also use the same "ora ora ora" battle cry.

Rose from the Alpha series was inspired by Lisa Lisa, a character from the manga series JoJo's Bizarre Adventure. Rose's outfit is almost identical to Lisa Lisa's and both share a similar fighting style that consists of channeling energy into a scarf. In addition, Rose's stage in Street Fighter Alpha 2 is Venice, which is the same city where Joseph Joestar meets Lisa Lisa in the story.

World of Warcraft
The Crypts of Karazhan, though incomplete, are very developed and detailed with multiple locations. It is unclear why they were made inaccessible through normal means, but it may have been due to the gruesome nature of the area.

A Banjo-Kazooie game was in development for the Game Boy Color, under the name 'Banjo-Kazooie: Grunt's Curse'. It would have featured Gruntilda putting a curse on Kazooie, and carrying her in a backpack, similar to Banjo.
It's unknown why the game was canceled, but some of the ideas would later be reworked into Gruntilda's Revenge for the Gameboy Advance.
