Skies of Arcadia
Exclusive to the GameCube re-release is a set of unlockable bonus content colloquially referred to by fans as "The Three Secrets". The requirements for earning this content is as follows:
•All discoveries need to be found and reported
•The number of opened Treasure Chests must be at 90% or above
•All Crew Members must be acquired
•All Moonfish need to be captured and given to Maria's bird Piccolo
•All Wanted Battle bounties must be found, beaten, and reported
•Beat all four optional battles with Piastol and finish her story
•Defeat over 2500 enemies
•Defeat all four Sky beasts
•Win 12 non-story Ship Battles

Upon meeting this criteria, The Three Secrets can then be acquired:
1. The Mystery Merchant will now sell the Sky Fang sword to Vyse.
2. A secret discovery can be found on a peak of a rocky overpass in High Sky just outside of Sailor's Island. This discovery is a Golden Hamachou, and does not appear in the Journal after it is found.
3. At Crescent Isle, a hidden boss Spoiler:Vigoro, who in the GameCube version became an Air Pirate following his third encounter with the main characters can be fought.

Star Fox
On the Continue screen, Fox can be seen standing alongside a grid display showing off the 3D model of an Arwing, which can be interacted with.

•D-Pad = Rotates the model; pressing or holding down in one direction will cause it to move faster; doing so in the opposite direction will cause it to slow down; doing so in a perpendicular direction (i.e. pressing either left/right and then pressing either up/down, or vice versa) will not affect the speed of the model.
•X button = Stops the model's movement; moving with the D-Pad resumes it.
•L and R buttons = Zooms in and zooms out the model respectively.
•A button = Holding this button triggers a "drawing" mode where a still image of the frame where the render last appeared will trail behind it infinitely with each succeeding frame; this effect is similar to the "trailing/ghosting" glitch that can occur when dragging windows or dialog boxes on older computer operating systems.
•Plugging in a second controller = Every button except for L, R, X and A, will let you scroll through numerous models of enemies found throughout the game.

Mega Man Battle Network 4
It was previously believed that the Z Saber Battle Chip could only be accessed by trading it into the game from Mega Man Zero 3, of which each copy of the game had only one copy of the chip. However, in 2022, an easier way to obtain the chip was discovered by entering the following hidden code at the Number Trader: 72794137. This code also works in the Japanese version of the game, causing its existence to baffle players as it has never been released in any of the game's official strategy guides. It's possible that the code was intended to be used during development as an easier way to access the chip without having to trade it across games, and that it was never meant to be found by players.

The game mocks Doom through the use of certain cheat codes. IDDQD, which grants invincibility in Doom, kills the player instantly instead, and entering IDKFA, which gives the player every weapon in Doom, takes away all of the player's weapons.

Super Bomberman 2
There are two Battle Stages that are hidden in the game. Both of these stages use the third Battle Theme, a track that can only be heard through normal play in Battle Stage 4. The official method of accessing these stages is to plug in a Hudson Super Joy Card controller, turn on the turbo-fire feature, and hold X for several seconds. On the other hand, both stages can be accessed using Pro Action Replay codes.

Version 1.2 of the game added secret alternate phases to three boss fights, two of which being ideas that were originally scrapped before the game's release:
•Botanic Panic!: Spoiler:By not attacking Ollie Bulb the onion, he will retreat back into the ground and skip to Chauncey Chantenay the carrot's phase featuring an additional mini-boss, a spinning radish named Horace Radiche who despite being completed before the game was released, originally went unused.
•Pyramid Peril: Spoiler:If the player shrinks into the mini-plane form just before the fourth phase of the fight, Djimmi the Great will scan the player and pull up a marionette featuring a dinosaur, a miniature version of Dr. Kahl's Robot and a stone statue, before tugging a longer string and pulling up a smaller version of Cuppet. This skips the fourth phase and goes directly into a harder version of the final phase where the smaller Cuppet will act as a turret firing at the player counter-clockwise to the spinning Eye of Providence pyramids.
•Dramatic Fanfare: Spoiler:By parrying off of the pink star projectiles, the player can land onto two hanging cherub props that control the chandelier in the background of the first phase. Standing on one will gradually lower it until a dinging sound is heard and the chandelier becomes slanted. Doing the same to the other cherub will cause the first phase to abruptly end and trigger an alternate storyline to the fight that was originally unfinished by the time the game was released. After both cherubs are lowered, Sally Stageplay's newlywed husband is crushed by the chandelier. Instead of changing the scenery to Sally's home, the second phase of the fight takes place at St. Timothy's Nunnery, implying that Sally became a nun. In place of Sally's husband worrying in the bushes for her is the Priest that oversaw their marriage, and a Nun takes the place of Sally's children to throw rulers at the player. In the third phase, a god form of Sally's husband accompanies Sally's goddess form and attacks by summoning a cherub, portrayed by Sally's son from the normal second phase of the fight, to push a spinning cardboard fireball towards the player. The fourth phase of the fight is unchanged from the normal path, but with the Nun appearing in the background in place of Sally's husband and children when on Expert mode.

Super Mario 64 DS
In the only instance of a character having a move exclusive to VS Mode, when Yoshi is wearing Wario's Cap, he can perform an additional move called the "Swing and Fling" by picking up a stunned Yoshi, spinning around in a circle and throwing him. This move is only mentioned in the game's manual. Wario's animations when using this move share similarities to the "Wild Swing-Ding" move featured in Wario World, although the Swing and Fling does not take over spinning automatically.

Super Smash Bros. Melee
Captain Falcon has minor gameplay changes based on which alternate skin is being used. Presumably a programming oversight, the character's Environmental Collision Box (ECB), a small diamond that prevents the character from falling through stage environments and walking through walls, differs slightly between skins, meaning they have very slightly different widths for dealing with stage collisions/interaction (although hurtboxes remain the same on all skins). Ranked from thinnest to widest, Captain Falcon's default skin has the thinnest ECB, while the Pink, Blue, Red, and Black skins have wider ECBs, with the Green skin coming out on top with the widest.

Kid Icarus
There is a hidden feature that allows Pit to haggle with Shopkeepers to lower the prices of items.

In the NES release, this is done by simultaneously pressing A and B on a second controller. In the Famicom release, haggling is instead done using a second controller with a microphone on it, by holding A on the second controller and speaking into the microphone to haggle. In the 3D Classics port for the 3DS, haggling can be done by simultaneously pressing the A button and either Start or Select.

The main catch to haggling is that the prices will only be successfully lowered if Pit's health is one point higher than the first number of the stage he is currently haggling on (i.e. Pit's health must be at 2 arrows when haggling in World 1 to successfully haggle). Otherwise, the Shopkeeper will raise the prices instead.

However if you fail to haggle, the prices will not change until the Shopkeeper's text finishes scrolling, creating a small window of time to buy something at its original price just before they increase.

Uncharted Waters: New Horizons
During Otto Baynes' campaign when meeting Ezequiel in the café, if you choose not to fight him, he will be ridiculed as a coward upon his return to England to inform the King they chose not to fight, and will be renamed to "Loser Baynes". Upon returning to Spain and accepting Ezequiel's duel, defeating him will cause him to express confusion as to why Otto backed out of fighting him the first time before proclaiming that he will never be called a loser again, changing Otto's name once more to "Winner Baynes".

Uncharted Waters: New Horizons
During Catalina's campaign before the final boss fight, there are two different scenarios that occur if you decide to attack either João or one of the ships in Ezequiel's fleet first (implying that she thinks they are still her enemy) that make the game unwinnable.

Upon attacking and defeating Ezequiel's fleet first, the ships following you will stop and instead travel around the overworld in random directions until they eventually disappear from the map. Despite this, João's ship will still follow behind her, and defeating him will cause his ship to disappear entirely.

If you attack and defeat João first, his ship will disappear and cause the rest of Ezequiel's fleet to scatter. In a fourth wall break, Catalina will point out upon attacking João that she chose to do this just to see what would happen, before he encourages her to reset the game so they can see the ending.

Uncharted Waters: New Horizons
Towards the end of João Franco's campaign, breaking the flow of the game's story by choosing to attack Catalina's fleet will prompt his crew and opponent to mock him for being spiteful against her, causing him to be renamed to "Spiteful Franco" and significantly reduce his stats, making the game unwinnable. Upon her defeat, Catalina will then appear on the overworld as a hirable vagabond sailor.

A similar situation occurs when attacking Ezequiel's fleet, causing João to be lambasted for making such a poor decision, renaming him to "Nitwit Franco", and dropping his stats to the same unwinnable level.

The Longest Journey
The Book of Secrets is a showcase of voice acting outtakes, unused music and concept art that can be unlocked by beating the game and is accessed from the title screen. However, there is a secret way to unlock it earlier on in the game.

Spoiler:In the hallway outside April's bedroom, a leaf from an Organic plastic plant can be collected. This leaf can then be used on the Flowerbed in The City Green, triggering an animation of April planting the leaf next to it which immediately sprouts a large flower. She will then comment about hearing a voice stating that a "Book of Secrets" was now open, unlocking the bonus content.

Rayman 3: Hoodlum Havoc
In 2021, a secret display mode for the PlayStation 2 version of the game was discovered that involves first setting the standard video output to 480p (through the "Progressive Scan Mode" option), and then starting a new game with the profile name "PSONE". Doing this will cause the game to lower the standard output from 480p to 240p and disable texture filtering, making it more closely resemble a PlayStation game. For unknown reasons, this mode is referred to as "Christian Slater mode" in the source code.

Rayman Origins
Exclusive to the PlayStation Vita version is a new collectible item called Relics that are gradually put together to unlock two mosaic cutscene rooms in the Snoring Tree. Each mosaic features origin stories for Rayman and Globox that contradict the originally planned origin story shown in the game's debut trailer. Rayman's origin story depicts him as Spoiler:originally having been bald and having a girlfriend with an afro, and showing the incident that gave him his hair. Globox's origin story depicts him as Spoiler:originally having red skin, and showing the incident that gave him his blue skin.

Sanctum 2
In several levels in the game, hidden areas with glowing blue codes can be found that could have been entered on a now-defunct website called Elysian Archives to access background story content, although each story page has since been preserved on the Internet Archive. Codes for each of the 8 archives can be found in Levels 1, 2, 4 through 8, and 10.

Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII
In the underground caves of Shinra Manor, several Coffin Keys can picked up from Sahagin enemies which can open four coffins found in the area. Three coffins contain more enemies, while the fourth coffin contains an unseen sleeping man who Zack decides to not disturb. This person is Spoiler:Vincent Valentine, who at this point in the Final Fantasy VII series storyline was Spoiler:in the middle of a long, dormant sleep after undergoing genetic experiments.

Mega Man ZX
Area N can be accessed from the Transerver room in Area M-3. In this area, while on Normal or Hard difficulty, you can obtain a Mysterious Rock after defeating either Spoiler:Omega (in his Zero form) from Mega Man Zero 3, or Spoiler:eight bosses with four each culled from Mega Man Zero 3 and Mega Man Zero 4. In order to access either set of four bosses in the latter method, you must be playing on an original DS or DS Lite, as the Game Boy Advance cartridges for either Zero 3 or Zero 4 must be inserted to gain access to them. In Mega Man Zero/ZX Legacy Collection, you can select either game to use for this bonus content via Link Mode before starting up Mega Man ZX.

After obtaining the Mysterious Rock, you can take it to Fleuve who will analyze and transform it into Spoiler:the Biometal Model O, allowing Vent or Aile to turn into Omega and use all of his attacks.

Far Cry 6
At any time before the story ends and when the entire map is unlocked, if the player tries to fly or boat out of bounds and away from the map they will trigger a secret ending. Spoiler:Specifically, when the player passes the boundary the screen will fade to black with "3 Months Later" displayed. The scene then cuts to one where Dani is lounging on a beach with a radio next to him where negative news involving the events on the island and around the world can be heard. The Radio then starts playing Congo by Gloria Estefan which continues into the game's credits. This is the only way to get the "Hidden in Plain Sight" achievement/trophy. However, all of this will not work if the player has beaten the main story.
