Crash Bandicoot 3: Warped
Remaining idlr on the game's title screen will cause a Demonstration Mode to play. When the third Demo plays, if the player holds down triangle as the screen fades to black, they can then control Coco during her flying stage. Should the player then pause and select the Warp Room option as if to exit a level early, they will skip the introduction cutscene and immediately begin a new game with all five power ups unlocked from the start.

It is unknown if this is an elaborate hidden cheat, a potential debug function Naughty Dog utilized during development, or just simply an mistake within the game's code.

Alternatively, completing the "level" as normal will spit Crash back out into Warp Room 4. Due to the gate being locked without standard progression the player is now stuck, only able to access those five respective levels.

In the PAL version, this same feature is performed with Start instead of Triangle.

Mario Kart: Double Dash!!
Attachment
By datamining a demo build of the game, an image of Donkey Kong Jr. can be found, suggesting that he may have been planned to appear in the game instead of Diddy Kong. Interestingly, Diddy Kong's internal filename in the final version is listed as "dk_jr," suggesting that Diddy's appearance may have been a later addition.

Jak II
"Construction Site" is a relatively unimportant level in the game, with only a cutscene being played there and little else for the player to do. It is very likely, however, that this level was at one point meant to have a bigger role in the game. The level has a lot of collision at places that are not normally reachable, and there are text entries for unused mission names, including "Climb Construction Site" and "Find Baron at Construction Site"

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.

The special ability for the Mini Toads, reducing their size to get under tight spaces (the Small Crawl), is possibly a reference to how the Mushroom power ups from the Mario franchise move around. The Mini Toads while doing so even slightly resemble Super Mushrooms.

Outside of Sirchester there is an NPC who states that he swam from the Kalos Region (from Pokémon X & Y) to the Galar Region. If what he says is true then this confirms that the two regions are in close proximity to each other just like their real-world European counterparts of the United Kingdom (Galar) and France (Kalos), which, in real life, are very close but separated by the English Channel.

In the Nintendo Switch version, there is unused data. This includes text and button icons for the Wii U controller, that may suggest a Wii U version was planned at some point.

An unused CD graphic exists in the game's files. It is theorised that this belongs to an unused song, "Addicted To Bass", since there is a reference to it in the files.

The Legend of Zelda
In the publication "The Legend of Zelda Encyclopedia" by Dark Horse Comics, it was strongly suggested that the entirety of the first legend of Zelda game actually takes place on Death Mountain. Furthermore there are a lot of similarities between the entire map of The Legend of Zelda and the Death Mountain portion of the overworld from The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, giving more credence to the claim.

The Conner android has several possible references to the Terminator film franchise. Conner is an "RK800" model, just as Arnold Schwarzenegger's character from the films is a "T-800" model initially. The name of the robot from the game is "Conner" which is very similar to the surname of two central characters from the films: Sarah Connor and John Connor. The Trophy for letting Conner die every way possible is called "I'll Be Back" which comes from Schwarzenegger's icon line from the first Terminator film.

Animal Crossing
In an early announcement trailer for the Nintendo Gamecube, Animal Crossing was called (or at least promoted as) "Animal Forest for Nintendo Gamecube", outright referencing the original Japanese title of the game (Dōbutsu no Mori or "Animal Forest" in English). This suggests that either the English localizers were thinking of keeping the game's original title, albeit translated, or the title "Animal Crossing" was not yet finalized.

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 Baby Yoshi seen in an egg half hatched on the game's Japanese title screen has an unused graphic of it's full body, suggesting that the game was originally intended to show Baby Yoshis both fully hatched and half hatched.

When Miis speak the word "Direct", they'll do the pose that Satoru Iwata was known for having done in Nintendo Directs when saying "Directly".

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate
Attachment
Solid Snake's series logo was changed from the FOX emblem that was used in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, to the exclamation point seen when being caught in most Metal Gear Solid games.

This is likely because the FOX emblem (which first appeared in Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater) is also commonly associated with series creator Hideo Kojima and his company Kojima Productions, a former subsidiary of Konami. Kojima left Konami in 2015 and the removal of the FOX emblem to represent the series is likely a biproduct of the split.

There's an unused sprite of Mario and Pauline sitting after the rescue in the NES version of the game, suggesting that there was to be different sort of ending.
