A secret character who is hinted by people like the River Person is W.D. Gaster. According to clues scattered throughout the game, he was the royal scientist before Alphys and was responsible for creating the core, but he fell into the creation (which is implied to be the core, but could be the strange machine in San's secret workshop) and his life was cut short, disappearing from existence, but his consciousness is still present. Other than minor hints, trying to find W.D. Gaster and direct references to him can't be found playing the game normally, but can only be found if you edit the game's files and fun values. Also, if you go to your save file by editing the game files as well, you could also get a message from W.D. Gaster himself in the WingDings font (which is who he is named after), which he talks about his research, and then the game will crash.

Wario was originally going to be a playable fighter in Melee but wasn't added due to time constraints. He even had one of the highest potentials of being in the game according to the Smash 2 polls. Sakurai even stated that he would've been included if he had time.

Naming your Eevee either Sparky, Rainer or Pyro will allow it to evolve into either a Jolteon, Vaporeon or Flareon, respectively.

This appears to be a reference to the characters Sparky, Rainer and Pyro; the Eevee Brothers from the original Pokémon anime series.

After the cancellation of Earthworm Jim PSP, another attempt for a new Earthworm Jim game was made, a sequel that went by the name of Earthworm Jim 4. Not a whole lot of information was given about the game other than series creator Doug Tennapel returning to work on the game as a 'creative consultant'. Rumors began to arise that the game was going to be developed for the Nintendo Wii.
Doug Tennapel later commented;

"I need some real press source to straighten out these rumors. I read the initial post by the guy who put up the drawing I did for him and almost NOTHING in the post he wrote was true. I'm getting piles of letters asking me to confirm or deny the post and from what I've read it's total disinformation. Interplay actually wants to do the game right! We've been talking about a game now for two years. They want me to be involved, but times in games are tough right now for everyone. They have to raise a lot of money to fund the game properly... In our early discussions about the game, we had tentatively brainstormed ideas for the Wii. That is NOT a confirmation like the guy posted. We haven't presented the idea to Nintendo. As with anything in the gaming industry, the whole thing could turn on a dime and many of the facts can change about the game. What these fans don’t understand is how squirly things are at the beginning of the game. It would take at least two years to bring out the game and that’s after we’ve confirmed the budget and platform. The game could just as easily go away, get moved to the Iphone or become a Jim Tetris knock off as come out as a game on the Wii. People don’t understand how unstable game design is at the start.''

In 2012 at a Develop conference, David Perry (Lead designer for the first Earthworm Jim game) explained a possible premise for the fourth Earthworm Jim title, as well as confirming that it would be a 2D game.

"The thing we had talked about in the past is Jim had been in retirement...So, he's been sitting at home watching movies and eating popcorn. He's grossly overweight now. The plan was to start with him literally getting off the sofa, and it's a disaster because he just hasn't done anything since. But he's got to get back into action again."
In 2015 in an interview with Nick Brunty, he revealed that a new Earthworm Jim game was talked about, but the rights couldn't be obtained, as well as stating he wouldn't do it without anyone who worked on the first game.

"Oh man. A new EWJ game with the original team almost happened about 5 years ago but a deal with the IP owners couldn't get worked out. I think everyone would be up for it sometime. Feels like unfinished business but hard to align everyone. I wouldn't do it without the key players."

In 2006 a new Earthworm Jim game was announced. Going by the name of Earthworm Jim PSP, it would have been a complete 3D remake of the first game for the PSP. Despite 80% of the game being completed, the game was cancelled due to budgetary reasons with Shiny entertainment.

In the level "Highway", a billboard of Arin Hanson, popular YouTube animator and co-host of the web series Game Grumps, with the tag line "Face In The Game!!" can be seen passing by. Anyone who had pledged to the game's Kickstarter $2,500 US or more could have a 2D representation of their face somewhere in the game. Arin also appears in the game's credits as 'Mighty No. 12226'.

Oyu is an alias for Oichi who is based off her namesake, Oda Oichi. Oichi was Oda Nobunaga’s younger sister and was forced to divorce her husband and be married to Azai Nagamasa to broker an alliance between the Oda and Azai clans. After the Azai betrayed the Oda and were subsequently defeated, Oichi was honorably returned to her brother where she was remarried to her first husband.

Kotaro’s character is based off a renown ninja of the Hojo clan, Fuuma Kotaro, the leader a group of ninja from Sagami province. Unlike the Kotaro of the game who appeared to be a young novice ninja, Kotaro was supposedly a forty-year-old ninja leader when Onimusha 2: Samurai’s Destiny takes place around 1573.
Although in all likelihood, as Kotaro was a name accepted by numerous heads of the Fuuma family, this Kotaro could have been intended as the son of the aforementioned man, especially considering his character arc's ending.

Magoichi’s character is based off one of the warlords to have held the name Saiga Magoichi, namely the second, Suzuki Shigehide. Shigehide was the son of a warlord from Kii province, Suzuki Shigeoki, and he led arquebuse units in defense of the warrior monks of the Honganji.

Ekei’s character is based off a combination of his namesake, Ankokuji Ekei and the monk-warrior, Hozoin Inei. Inei was a warrior monk and founder of the Hozoin style of spear fighting.
Ankokuji Ekei was the abbot of Ankoku Temple and served the Mori clans. Unlike his in-game caricature he was small-framed and had very little combat training; he was sometimes referred to as "Motonari's Little Monk" by his contemporaries.

Many of the characters in Onimusha are based off real people. Most obviously Oda Nobunaga, Toyotomi Hideyoshi, and Akechi Samanosuke (Hidemitsu) either return or are referenced from their actions in Onimusha: Warlords.
The main character, Yagyu Jubei, is based on the swordsman and small-time warlord Yagyu Muneyoshi, founder of the Yagyu Shinkage-ryu style of swordsmanship.
