One of the random title screen splash messages "Woo, /v/!", a reference to the dedicated video game imageboard "/v/" on website 4chan, was removed from the PC Java version of the game in update ver.1.17 released in 2021. It's unknown why it was removed, neither was it mentioned in the game's official patch notes, but it's presumably due to the controversial nature of the website which Microsoft may wish to distance themselves from.

During the game's early years, the game's creator Markus "Notch" Persson had heavily promoted the game on a number of websites including 4chan, which its success he partly attributed to the website.

Concept art featured in early design documents of the first Kingdom Hearts game shows a world clearly based on Disney-Pixar's Toy Story franchise that, for reasons that have not officially been stated, does not appear in the final release. A Toy Story world would, however, appear in Kingdom Hearts III

The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion
Upon first entering the Market District, a notice will appear on the screen reading "New Topic: Do you need couriers?". However, this topic cannot be discussed with any NPCs. This may be a leftover from a scrapped quest or questline in which the player would deliver letters to NPCs. The string of text's file name is "ImpExWork", with "ImpExDeliveredLetter" and "ImpExGiveLetter" also existing in the game's files.

An unused "Darkness" spell exists in the files, but ultimately goes unused. It acts oppositely to the "Light" spells in the game, making an area darker (most likely to make it easier to sneak and remain undetected). Similar to the unused "Lock" spell it contains many "DO NOT USE" warnings.

An unused "Lock" spell exists in the files (as well as Easy Lock and Average Lock), but it goes unused in the final game. It would have locked containers and doors. The files include several warnings which read "DO NOT USE". "Lock" existed as a spell in TES III: Morrowind.

In "The Siren's Deception", the player would have only been fought by 2 of the women in Gweden Farm, with the third, Faustina, fleeing to the basement. There, the player would have had multiple dialogue options with her, and ultimately been able to spare her. In the final game, you must fight all 3 women on the first floor with no option to spare any of them. These lines were found in the German version of the game.

There are unused lockpicking animations for NPCs that would have been used when NPCs lockpick locked chests or doors. This is a rare occurrence in-game and when it happens, the NPCs simply use the "activate" animation. There exists animations for locked chests on the ground as well as doors.

Sonic Adventure
In the E3 1999 demo of Sonic Adventure, Knuckles had a very different voice. This was the same voice actor, but they re-recorded nearly all of his lines before the game's release. Surprisingly, voices for his entire story were included, even though the demo only had two stages for Knuckles.

Unused voice lines for NPCs exist mentioning "Hearts Day" and "New Life Festival". These are both holidays that existed in The Elder Scrolls II: Daggerfall. It's possible Bethesda meant for the holiday system and these specific holidays to return in Oblivion, before being cut. Additionally, Pete Hines mentions in an interview that these holidays were to be present in an unreleased DLC.

During a demo at E3 2016, the Shiekah Slate had the ability to reveal an enemy's Hit Points. To do so, the players would hold the Wii U gamepad up to the screen and hold the cursor at the enemy who's Hit Points they want to see. This was removed because of how cumbersome it was and how it was almost no help in helping players on how to analyze enemy camps.

There is an unused model for the "The Ring of Khajiiti", a Daedric artifact associated with both Meridia and Mephala. However, it goes unused as both Daedric Princes reward different items. The Ring of Khajiiti was present in The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, so the developers may have intended for it to return.

The second playable character was originally an unnamed black cat with blonde hair. However, the games creator Stephen Diduro got permission from Ziyo Ling (the original creator of Lilac, Carol and Milla) to use Carol and Milla in the game. Afterwards he drew Carol over the old character's sprites.

Aretha Franklin’s “Respect” was once planned to be added to the Xbox 360 version of the game. Some of the graphics and pictograms are still within the game’s files, including a 9 second clip of the planned choreography. It's unknown why the song was dropped during development.
