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.

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.

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".

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.

Ultimate Marvel Vs. Capcom 3
Within the game files is an audio clip for an unused special quote when pitting Dormammu against Doctor Strange where the former would say "Doctor Strange, let this be our final battle!". This quote is also in the files of the original release, suggesting Doctor Strange was a scrapped character from the original release that was carried over to Ultimate.

In 2012, Ken Balough announced that Big the Cat would be retired from the franchise (for the time being) as they could not find a good use for the character, and all things that they already tried didn't work out for him. This however did not stop Big from having a cameo in Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed, having a trophy in the 3DS version of Super Smash Bros. 4, and being playable in Sonic Runners.

James Bond 007: From Russia with Love
Attachment
The criminal organization in the game is called OCTOPUS as opposed to SPECTRE in the James Bond film series which the game is based on. It's possible this was due to the legal battle at the time between film production company EON and Kevin McClory, who the latter then owned the rights to SPECTRE and Blofeld.

Namco X Capcom
A title card for a “Chapter 47” with the same title as the game’s final chapter can be found in the game’s data. It's possible that either two prologues were originally standard chapters at one point of the development, or two more chapters were planned for the game but were scrapped.

It's possible to trigger one of three error messages at the title screen if you have attached a Nintendo 64 Disk Drive (N64DD), suggesting that an expansion disk for the game was planned at one point.

The three messages which can appear are:
*Error: 41 DEVICE_COMMUNICATION_FAILURE N64 Disk Drive or N64 Control Deck may not be connected properly.
*Error: 43 POWERONRESET_DEVICERESET_OCCURED N64 Disk Drive may have broken down.
*Error: 44 RAMPACK_NOT_CONNECTED Jumper Pack may be left in N64 Control Deck.

The Poison Mushroom in the Super Smash Bros. games is the only item borrowed from another series whose appearance does not stay true to its original franchise. In the Mario series, poison mushrooms have distinct colouring from other mushrooms, but in the Super Smash Bros. series, they look similar to Super Mushrooms in order to purposefully confuse players. The differences between the two items are nearly unnoticeable - the Poison Mushrooms are only slightly less red and have a meaner look.

Grand Theft Auto 2
There is some discrepancy regarding the year in which GTA2 takes place. The game is often stated as taking place in 2013, as this is the year marked in police records found on the official GTA2 website. However, Head Radio host Johnny Riccaro says "the millennium is coming" in one of his broadcasts, suggesting the game takes place in 1999 or just before it. The game's own manual claims that it takes place "three weeks into the future", and the official website containing the police records used to have a timer always set three weeks from the current date.

The date was perhaps left ambiguous on purpose, as the city the game takes place in is also called "Anywhere, USA".

Mathis Cronqvist is most likely named after Matthias Corvinus, the Hungarian king who was a tentative ally of Vlad Tepes', and once had him imprisoned in a royal tower.

Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 2
When Future Trunks is tagged out in a tag battle, he says "Back to the future" possibly in reference to the popular sci-fi film of the same name.

Paper Mario
Under the Smash Attack mini-game room, there are 10 unused Luigi sprites. Since the mini-game has Mario searching boxes for 10 portraits of Princess Peach, it's possible that the game's goal was originally to find Luigi in the boxes 10 times, and the developers simply forgot to remove the Luigi sprites.

Street Fighter III
One of Chun-Li's win quotes in the game is "Hey leave me alone. I'm a fighter, not a news reporter." This may refer to the Street Fighter live-action movie, where Chun-Li was portrayed as a news reporter.

The opera scene with Mettaton is likely a parody of "Aria di Mezzo Carattere" from Final Fantasy VI.

Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U
The image of Mario and Luigi carrying gifts for Bayonetta is a possible reference to Bayonetta 2, in which Enzo carries Bayonetta's gift boxes in the game's opening cutscene.

Undertale
In the game's demo as well as full version prior to patch v1.001, an unused song by the name of "grandpasemi.ogg" could be found in the game's files. This was likely intended for a cut character that could have been related to Sans, Papyrus, and possibly even W.D. Gaster, due to the name Semi being based on Semi Serif fonts. It is a short, slowed-down, and re-instrumentated version of the song Metal Crusher, which is used as Mettaton's first battle theme.

This same song is now used as of patch v1.001 when you deny feeding Temmie any Tem Flakes. It plays while Temmie makes a unique facial expression, with a text graphic appearing beside her that says "can't blame a BARK for tryin'...", immediately followed by Temmie trying to attack you with her extendable arm.
