Saints Row IV
Due to the game's content, it was the first game to be banned for sale in Australia after the introduction of the R18+ classification. A censored version of the game was created, removing the content that was deemed inappropriate and later approved for release by the board.

Final Fight
The second boss of the game was named Sodom in the Japanese version, which sounds similar to the biblical city of the same name, as well as the sexual activity of sodomy. This resulted in Sodom's name being changed to Katana in the west.

Shadow the Hedgehog
The game was originally intended to be more graphic than the final release, with the initial goal being to earn a T Rating by the ESRB. However, part way through the game's development the ESRB introduced the E10+ Rating, so the Development Team decided to aim for that instead, resulting in some of the game's content being censored. This included changing the Black Arms' blood from red to green, editing scenes of GUN Soldiers' deaths, cutting out Maria's death, and censoring some pieces of dialogue.

Final Fight
In the Super Famicom (Japanese) version of the game, there is a small, dark dot on the forehead of Belger's character portrait, most likely as a result of shading. In the international release, Nintendo removed this dot for fear it would be mistaken for a bindi and thus make players think that they were beating up a disabled Hindu. On other platforms, the character portraits are too small to display such a minute detail clearly.

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Eyes of Heaven
Originally Stroheim's default outfit was his Nazi uniform, with the cyborg one being his alternate. The Nazi costume was completely removed in the western releases, thus making his default outfit the cyborg one.

Final Fight
In the Japanese game's intro, Jessica appears in a bra on the T.V. screen for a few seconds before Damnd does. However, in the US and international versions, Jessica is never shown. Damnd's face is always in the monitor, but you can hear Jessica screaming in the background. In the Sega CD version, however, Jessica can be seen in the intro wearing a red dress.

The final boss of the game, Belger, is seen sitting in an electric wheelchair, though he is perfectly capable of walking without it. The exact reason why he needs the wheelchair is unknown. Some players theorize that Belger uses a wheelchair to trick his enemies into thinking that he is frail and helpless, or to discourage them from attacking him, as it would look uncivilized or cowardly to physically assault a "disabled" person.

In order to avoid the associated controversies, the wheelchair was digitally redesigned into an executive office chair during the game's transition from Japan to the rest of the world. The international version also adds new frames of animation for Belger walking, just to make it clear that he isn't disabled. In the Japanese version, he has no walking animation and merely hops around the room.

God of War III
The Japanese version of God of War III censored some of the game's more explicit violence and nudity:

• Poseidon's Princess, Aphrodite, and her handmaidens had their breasts covered up.
• The graphic wounds that Kratos gives to Hercules' face were removed during his death scene.
• When Kratos chops off Hermes' legs, his protruding bones were removed during his death scene.
• The scene where Kratos removes Helios' head with his bare hands takes place off-screen.

One of the TV commercials for the game featuring Heidi Klum is based on the well-known underwear dance scene from the film Risky Business. This commercial was later pulled and replaced by a censored version with camera angles that exposed less of Heidi Klum's crotch. A buttoned-up shirt was also added to her outfit.

In the Japanese version, Wonder Pink's trophy had a different pose, and her legs and underwear were shaded to make it appropriate for the CERO rating.

Pocket Card Jockey
In the Japanese version, a button with an image of a whip can be used in the final turn to speed up the horse. In the US version, the image of the whip was replaced with a green "Go!" button. This was likely changed to avoid complaints over animal abuse.

F-Zero GX
In the Japanese version, if you ask Roger Buster during the post-game interview what he would do with one billion credits of prize money, he will say he would get a nice cold beer. However, if you ask him the same question in the English version, he will instead say he would get a nice cold drink.

Dark Souls III
NSFW - This trivia is considered "Not Safe for Work" - Click to Reveal
In the fight with Spoiler:Oceiros the Consumed King, Oceiros goes through the first half of the fight holding what appears to be nothing in his hand, giving the impression that a baby named "Ocelotte" is either invisible or simply does not exist and is just a delusion in Oceiros's mind.

However, there are several files still in the game data (including model, model-skeleton, textures and sound files) that show at one point, there was indeed a baby held in his hand. The most likely reason the baby was removed in the final game is because it would have been considered "too graphic" for various game-rating boards, as the baby is killed mid-fight in a very explicit manner.

In the NTSC-J and PAL versions, "Erel Plowse" originally wears no leggings, exposing her legs. In the NTSC-U version, she wears pink leggings, and has an altered camera view when she performs a grab move that focuses less on her crotch.

Final Fight 2

Won Won wields a meat cleaver in the Japanese version of Final Fight 2, but this was removed in the English version. Despite this, the artwork featured in the manual still has him holding the cleaver, and the text warns to "be careful not to get too close to him or he'll slice you up". While no official explanation for the change has been given, it was likely due to Nintendo's censorship policy, since characters could bleed when hit by it.
