Capcom Fighting Evolution
Originally, there was going to be a group of characters representing the original Street Fighter. It consisted of Retsu (in what was meant to be his playable debut), Eagle (in his Capcom vs. SNK 2 incarnation), and a redesigned younger version of Sagat without the chest scar. Due to time constraints, all three were cut from the game

The feature to feed parrots cookies to breed and tame was removed in a patch due to outcry from the Minecraft community. In real-life, chocolate cookies can kill birds if fed to them and people felt that children who played the game would try to copy this. The feature was changed prior to the release of patch 1.12.

Feeding cookies to parrots was also a subtle reference to the song "Polly" by the band Nirvana.

At the end of the game's E3 2016 trailer, a Jiggy from Banjo-Kazooie can be seen in one of the character's drink glasses. This nod to some of the senior developers' previous series seems to be completely removed from the final game however, as Playtonic likely do not have the rights to use it.

Super Mario 64 DS
In the European and American versions of the game, King Boo has an empty text box displayed when he is confronted by Yoshi in Big Boo's Haunt. This means Yoshi could have originally entered Big Boo's Haunt without the requirement of selecting Mario, Luigi, or Wario.
