The Revenge of Shinobi
In an interview with game's director and designer Noriyoshi Ohba, he was told about how popular the game's composer Yuzo Koshiro’s music was. He commented:

"Yeah, it’s really a collection of some of his most famous songs. The Chinatown stage theme, in particular, is amazing. I remember getting goosebumps when [...] I listened to a demo tape of the Chinatown theme for the first time. I was impressed by his work, and we worked well together, so I asked him to do the music for Streets of Rage the following year."

Ohba's sound effects would also be re-used in later titles such as the Streets of Rage games.

The main theme for "The Firefighter with Heroic Aspirations" sounds extremely similar to the main theme of the 1984 film, 'Ghostbusters'. The connection is likely a nod to the fact that the Ghostbusters' headquarters is located in a firehouse.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate
Jun Senoue, famous for being a lead music composer for Sonic Adventure 1 and 2, said he was insipired to write and arrange Super Smash Bros. Ultimate's "Mega Man 4 Medley" in the style of a Sonic Series composition after he came across a Sonic and Mega Man crossover comic that sparked his imagination. He chose to center his arrangement on the 4th Mega Man game because of fond memories that he had of playing the game at university.

Console: PlayStation
The iconic start-up sound of the PlayStation is actually a combination of three different clips stored in the system BIOS, which are then either sped up or slowed down to produce what is heard at the boot-up screen. These sounds also serve to check if the system is running normally and is OK to read games - errors within the system can lead to the startup sound becoming distorted.

Streets of Rage 2
In the Marukatsu Megadrive interview, the game's composer Yuzo Koshiro was asked about what music influenced the game. He responded: "I started writing the music last Spring, which was right around the time The Orb was coming to Japan, and everyone (myself included) was super excited about that. I was listening to Prodigy and Eon too, stuff with weird lyrics."

Mother 3
Mother 3+, the game's physical soundtrack, contains a remix of Big Shot's theme. This remix is heavily based on the theme used in the trailer for Earthbound/Mother 64. The track's name, "A Great Person Theme", instead of "Big Shot's Theme", suggests that this particular version of the song was created earlier in the game's development, possibly when it was still planned to be a 64DD game.

Mother 3
Mother 3's official soundtrack, Mother 3+, contains a remix of the song "Snowman". This remix was reused 2 years later for Super Smash Bros. Brawl. The 2 tracks are near identical, with the only major difference being the intro to the song. The Brawl version uses a choir for the beginning, while Mother 3+ uses a wind sound in its place. The Brawl version also adds a drumbeat to the song on its second loop.

Sonic Generations
The autotuned part of Escape from the City Act 1 is the same melody from Sonic the Hedgehog 3's Endless Mine level. In addition, Act 2’s theme contains elements of It Doesn’t Matter from Sonic Adventure 2.
Found within the game's data are unused themes of the mini-games "Let's Get a Move on" and "Pandemonium" from Mario Party 3 and 9 respectively, suggesting mini-games from Mario Party 3 and 9 that used those tracks were intended to be included in the game.

Hyrule Warriors
The "Under Siege" musical theme appears to be based on part of Gustav Holst's "Mars, the Bringer of War" suite from Opus no. 32 "The Planets", this is appropriate due to the heavy war theme of the game and the situation the characters are in when the theme plays.

The Legend of Zelda
Shigeru Miyamoto stated, in a developer interview, that he wanted to remake “Ravel’s Bolero” for the title screen as he thought it best suited the opening crawl seen in the final game. However, this was changed to avoid legal issues since the song was 1 month away at the time from entering the public domain.
