Minecraft

The feature to feed parrots cookies to breed and tame was removed in a patch due to outcry from the Minecraft community. In real-life, chocolate cookies can kill birds if fed to them and people felt that children who played the game would try to copy this. The feature was changed prior to the release of patch 1.12.

Feeding cookies to parrots was also a subtle reference to the song "Polly" by the band Nirvana.

The Poison Mushroom in the Super Smash Bros. games is the only item borrowed from another series whose appearance does not stay true to its original franchise. In the Mario series, poison mushrooms have distinct colouring from other mushrooms, but in the Super Smash Bros. series, they look similar to Super Mushrooms in order to purposefully confuse players. The differences between the two items are nearly unnoticeable - the Poison Mushrooms are only slightly less red and have a meaner look.
