Disney's Aladdin
A long-standing debate exists over which of the two Aladdin ports - one for SNES made by Capcom and one for Sega Genesis made by Virgin Games - is actually the better version. Game designer Shinji Mikami, who made the SNES version, actually claims the Genesis port is better:

"If I didn't actually make [the SNES game], I would probably buy the Genesis one. Animation-wise, I think the Genesis version's better. The Genesis version had a sword, actually. I wanted to have a sword."

Mikami cites other problems for the SNES port besides the lack of bladed weapons. The cover art also did not include the "Genie" character, who is the most iconic member of the cast. This upset a lot of fans of the movie. Mikami said:

"Originally, the front of the Super Famicom package had a genie on it. Disney said no to that, so we had to move the genie to the back of the package in a smaller size. But the Sega version, they had the genie on the front."

According to Polygon and game director Dave Perry, who created the Genesis port of the game, the lack of Genie on the front cover could have had something to do with actor Robin Williams and his annoyance at the way Disney was using his character's likeness in promotional materials, such as video games:

"That put the use of the Genie as 'sensitive' during those discussions."

Dave Perry was happy to hear about how Shinji Mikami felt about his port of the game. Ironically, his opinion was opposite of Mikami's about both Aladdin games:

"I'm really biased as we made the original game and got Disney to deliver the animation. So I'd flip the quote, 'If I didn't actually make the Genesis version I'd probably buy the SNES one'."

During one point of the game, some reversed speech can be heard. When played backwards it says:

"There's something I have to tell you: The Walrus is Paul."

This is a reference to The Beatles song "Glass Onion", which features the line:

"I told you about the Walrus and me man, you know we as close as can be man, well here's another clue for you all: The walrus was Paul."

Spoiler:Another possible connection between the song and the game is the fact that the line "The walrus was Paul" is seen by conspiracy theorists as a message that proves Paul McCartney actually died in 1966 and was secretly replaced by a look-alike (as walruses apparently symbolize death in some cultures). Because Bad Milk's story is an interpretation of reincarnation, this could be the reason the developer's chose to use that particular line.

A PSN player, Goron2000, received a temporary ban for sharing on Twitter an in game screenshot that showed a fully rendered and hidden vagina after accidentally discovering it. Ubisoft created a patch to cover the vagina of one particular NPC, but interestingly left penises in the game. The player's ban was eventually lifted after several gaming news sources attempted to contact Sony for comment.

Though largely unused in-game, the characters Hunnigan and Mike have complete character models that can only be seen through camera hacks.

Hunnigan appears in-game during her radio conversations with Leon, where only her head and shoulders are visible. However, moving the camera reveals that these conversation are simply full character models of Leon and Hunnigan sitting next to each other behind a radio texture. Additionally, Hunnigan's model contains multiple layers of clothing, including a layer for both her blazer and blouse. Digging through the game's files also reveals a texture for a white blouse with a black bra and skin clearly visible underneath it.

Likewise, Leon's pilot Mike is never seen outside of his helicopter in-game. Moving the camera into the helicopter during his scenes, however, reveals a full character model inside of the cockpit. Oddly, the character model has yellow eyes, a trait usually associated with the game's monsters.

Similar to the SNES Game Mario Paint, tapping the letters on the game's title screen will produce unique effects:

• Tapping the word Super will drop out 5 Invincibility Stars, followed by a random voice or voices calling out the name of the game.
• Tapping the M will make it flip upside down into a W, spelling "Super Wario Maker". Wario's voice will also taunt the player.
• Tapping the A will make a cluster of multi-colored stars rain out from the background, which will also defeat all enemies present on the screen.
• Tapping the R will stretch it upwards slightly, raining out a shower of coins.
• Tapping the I will make the little parakeet from the Nintendo DSi Sound app appear and sit on top of the letter for a short moment.
• Tapping the O will make a Koopa Clown Car appear.
• Tapping the 2nd M will make a Buzzy Beetle helmet drop down.
• Tapping the 2nd A will turn it into a rocket ship taking off, along with an intercom counting down before it takes off.
• Tapping the K will turn the screen into a sepia tone, and will also play an 8-bit version of the title screen theme.
• Tapping the E will drop down a Springboard.
• Tapping the 2nd R will either make a Goomba's Shoe or a Yoshi Egg appear, depending on the style featured.

In addition, tapping anywhere else will make different types of enemies appear, and carry Mario around.

WWF No Mercy
WWF No Mercy was notorious for a massive memory glitch that would delete all of the player's save data at any time. A fixed version was released almost a year later. The new version also had blood removed, although animations and "first blood" matches remained in the game.

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure
Performing a time stop with the characters Dio or Jotaro after an opponent has been defeated sometimes causes a glitch where the opponent remains frozen for several seconds into the next round. This virtually guarantees another loss for them, as even a single hit while frozen like this causes a large amount of damage.
