The Binding of Isaac
As recently as the game's third update, the passive item "Money=Power" contained a typo that made it appear as "Monkey=Power". This would be patched out in a future update.

The Elder Scrolls II: Daggerfall
There is a questline that was accidentally left out of the final game due to a misnamed file. "A Test of Determination" is a questline for the Vampire Clan where the given objective is to confront a Daedra in the local dungeon where it lives over the control the player's bloodline has in a given region. The binary file is named P0B1XL08.QBN and the text-file is named P0B10L08.QRC. As a result of this oversight, the player can never get this quest unless you change the name of one file so that it matches the name of the other.

The game's smoke texture, labelled "gas_b5" in the source code, was intended to be much more detailed in appearance, but ended up corrupted in the final game due to being encoded in the RGBA16 format rather than the intended IA16. While the glitched texture would theoretically look like a swarm of multicolored pixels as a result of this error, it instead appears as a clump of black pixels due to the game displaying it without any colors, resulting in it not looking out of place. Modifying the game's code to convert the texture to the IA16 format results in it properly displaying.

NSFW - This trivia is considered "Not Safe for Work" - Click to Reveal
On April 22, 2015, Nintendo of America uploaded a tweet with an image of a Waluigi plush doll riding a Wiggler plush doll, with the caption:

"Reply "WAAAA" for #WaluigiWednesday. Reply "🌼" for #WiggerWednesday."

Someone at Nintendo of America forgot to spell-check Wiggler's name, because the term "wigger" describes a white person who emulates the behaviors of African-Americans.

Shortly after finding the mistake, Nintendo of America took it down and apologized for the error.

Despite the game portraying heavy usage of violence, blood, and sexual content, the game is still considered to be family-friendly based on the Commodore CDTV version's box cover.

The WWE 2K20 SmackDown! 20th Anniversary Collector’s Edition would normally come with a "Legend Autographed Plaque" of either Edge, Kurt Angle, or Rey Mysterio. However, many fans would receive a plaque without a autograph. While 2K had remained silent about the issue for days, Adam Copeland (Edge) would respond via Twitter about the issue telling fans they could mail their plaque's to his P.O. box, and he would sign each of them after returning from his movie shoot.

In the original release of Chapter 2, Spoiler:the "WRECK", "PAUSE", and "SPEW" VCR icons that appear during Spamton NEO's ultimate attack only showed up during the hidden Weird Route, and thus were absent from his fight during the normal route. While this difference was initially interpreted by fans as an intentional artistic decision, in actuality it was the result of an oversight: Spoiler:the icons were coded to appear at certain coordinates relative to the room where Spamton NEO is encountered. Because the fight on the normal route moved Spamton NEO and the player far out of range, the icons were consequently left offscreen.

This error was eventually fixed in the v1.08 patch, with Spoiler:the icons appearing in the proper location on both routes instead of just one. The patch additionally adds a new smoke effect after Spoiler:Spamton NEO's ultimate attack ends on both routes.

The player can drive on the overworld walls by driving up one of the outer ramps of the Thug Tug as fast as possible. Although the game will function normally when doing so, driving off it and into the void will crash the game. It's possible that this was an oversight by the developers.

Pokémon Platinum
In Platinum and HeartGold & SoulSilver, Bidoof's gender difference has more to it than in any other game. In Diamond & Pearl and every future game after HG/SS, Bidoof's gender difference is that the male has an additional 2 curls on the tail. However in these 3 games, Bidoof's patch of white around the face has a more pronounced bump in between the eyes on the male, with a more flattened bump on the female. Whether this is intentional or not is unknown, but due to the fact it was fixed later in Generation V, it's safe to assume this was a mistake.

Towards the end of the opening sequence, it displays the 3 Johto starters moving across the screen. Chikorita and Totodile use their in-game sprites. However, Cyndaquil uses a different sprite than what is actually in the game, and this sprite isn't used as Cyndaquil's sprite in any previous or future game, suggesting it may be a beta sprite.

The Wii version of the game doesn't support widescreen. As a result, when the aspect ratio is set to widescreen, it will result in the display being stretched out.

Rather than making it playable using a disc, the PC version was playable using a plug-and-play controller which could connect to Konami Live. Konami Live eventually went down in July 2012, taking “Frogger: Ancient Shadow” along with it. As of right now, a company called “Highway Frogs” is currently attempting to restore the game.

Final Fantasy VII
Attachment
In the very first Japanese release of the game, at the bottom of the well in Corel Prison, a rare debug enemy that was accidentally left in the game on its initial release can be randomly encountered known as "Test 0". This encounter does not require cheats or hacks to occur, although GameShark codes can be used to access every other debug enemy battle in the game. This battle was removed from all future releases of the game. "The Completely Unauthorized Final Fantasy VII Ultimate Guide" by Versus Books, released in 1997, features an entry on this enemy (note that the HP listing in the guide scan is incorrect; Type 0 has 30000 HP).

It is possible to grab and throw Nimbus with the tornado via modding. Since he doesn't have a death animation, his model will be stuck in an A-pose.

The Xbox 360 version was created exclusively for use with HDTV. Players using the game on a standard TV expressed concern with the dark image of it. As a result, Ubisoft recommended players play the version created for the original Xbox until a patch was released.

In the Japanese version of Trauma Center: Under the Knife and its remake Trauma Center: Second Opinion, the patient Linda Reid is 14 years old, and was aged up to 17 in the North American localization of the game. However, the English localization team forgot to account for this detail when localizing Trauma Center: Under the Knife 2, as Reid is also 17 in that version of the game when she should actually be 20 as the game takes place three years later.

In Room 209 of Blue Creek Apartments, there is a pre-determined once-per-playthrough chance of hearing a whisper after walking into the room. For years, it was unknown what this whisper was saying with fans who analyzed the audio clip speculating that it had to do with Spoiler:James reflecting on killing his wife Mary and leaving her body in his car at the beginning of the game, while one of the game's English localizers Jeremy Blaustein believed that it was a clip of one of the English voice actors practicing their lines in the sound booth, and was mistakenly added in by the Japanese developers who would not have known what it meant otherwise as it was unscripted. However, it was discovered in 2015 that the whisper was actually a snippet of a pre-existing stock sound effect of a man whispering gibberish.

Despite having an idle animation in-game, Nimbus' talking animation is used for both an idle animation and a talking animation. His actual idle animation is partially unused since its only used properly in the final level, Showdown With Omegaton.
