In "The Delicious Last Course" expansion, there is a puzzle on the map for Isle IV involving a trio of contest winners towards the back of the Isle and a set of 9 gravestones towards the front of the Isle. Completing this puzzle will unlock Spoiler:a secret boss fight that takes place in a dream world held up by the skeletal remains of the Devil (seen in claymation), where you fight angel and demon variants of the Devil on both sides of the stage that change back-and-forth every time you turn left or right. This boss fight was originally designed as a second phase for the Devil's fight in the main game, but ultimately went unused until the release of the Delicious Last Course. A primitive version of the phase can be found in the game’s data. This boss cannot be refought after beating it. Beating it will unlock the Cursed Relic as a charm as well as the achievement "A Horrible Night to Have a Curse", a reference to the text box seen during the day-to-night transition from Castlevania II: Simon's Quest.

A prototype version of this game contained an item, called "Flametrail", which is not present in the final release of the game. It is theorised this item would use the jet engines of the ship as a means of damaging other ships.

An unused set of Enclave Power Armor can be found in the game files and spawned in-game, utilizing console commands.

The stats differ and the armor set carries the file name, "Robo-Thor Armor", evidently a reference to Marvel Comic's Thor, as the armor helmet has a unique design reflective of Thor's own signature helmet.

The Elder Scrolls II: Daggerfall
There is a questline that was accidentally left out of the final game due to a misnamed file. "A Test of Determination" is a questline for the Vampire Clan where the given objective is to confront a Daedra in the local dungeon where it lives over the control the player's bloodline has in a given region. The binary file is named P0B1XL08.QBN and the text-file is named P0B10L08.QRC. As a result of this oversight, the player can never get this quest unless you change the name of one file so that it matches the name of the other.

PaRappa the Rapper
Attachment
In 2022, Rodney Greenblat uploaded a VHS rip to YouTube of the very first animation test of the game's opening cutscene, recorded directly from a Macintosh video output in 1995. The VHS, apparently a Christmas gift, is bookended by messages to Greenblat from Matsaya Matsuura, has no music, and features placeholder voice acting by Ryu Watabe. The cutscene features an early design for Katy, sporting a grass skirt, a yellow bra and dark blue and white fur, as well as a temporary stand-in design for PaRappa as his main design had not yet been finalized. This placeholder depicts him as a blue man sporting a red jacket and dark green shorts.

Um Jammer Lammy
Attachment
In 2022, Rodney Greenblat uploaded a VHS rip of the earliest beta versions of the game's cutscenes to YouTube. These cutscenes feature very little music, placeholder voice acting by Ryu Watabe, and an early pinker character design for Lammy which Greenblat thought made the character appear more lamb-like, but was rejected in favor of the final red-haired design.

This VHS rip also notably features two unused cutscenes that were changed significantly in the final game:
•An early intro cutscene showing the rest of Milk Can already backstage and waiting for Lammy to arrive, featuring the Jet Baby movie playing on TV rather than in theatres and an advertisement for Milk Can's show that night.
•A silent cutscene that appears to be an early version of the Joe Chin Museum Ma-san cutscene. In this cutscene, she is seen reading in a library rather than a museum, specifically a magazine featuring two disco dancers about to kiss. Ma-san, presumably irritated by the male dancer who appears to be the only one talking before this, begins drumming rapidly on a reading desk. Her drumming causes the library to shake, making books fall off the shelves and causing the male dancer to have a profuse nose bleed as they are kissing. The female dancer slaps him away, causing another stream of blood to shoot out of his right nostril, before cutting to a smiling Ma-san.

Alongside all the available playable characters (minus Bubble), Matilda and Hal have unused voice clips, suggesting they were to be added to the roster as well.

Two unused pigs that may have been planned to be playable at one point can be found in the data, one being a minion pig, and the other a “Moustache Pig.” It’s unclear how they were planned to be programmed into the game.

Final Fantasy IV
In a 1991 commentary with the game's composer Nobuo Uematsu published in the FFIV Minimum Album Liner Notes, he stated that the unreleased track "The Sea of Silence" was planned for the Moon overworld map, but the scenery didn't exactly match so it got scrapped, much to Uematsu's dismay as he was fond of the song.

Final Fantasy IV
In a 1991 commentary with the game's composer Nobuo Uematsu published in the FFIV Minimum Album Liner Notes, he stated that in early plans for the game, the team wanted to use the unreleased track "Rosa o Sukue! (Save Rosa!)" aka "Restless Moments" for a scene where you had to save Rosa within a time limit or a game over would occur; this scene would appear in the final game in the Tower of Zot without this song.

Final Fantasy IV
In a 1991 commentary with the game's composer Nobuo Uematsu published in the FFIV Minimum Album Liner Notes, he stated that the unreleased track "The Origin" was the first song he composed for the game, and described the song as setting the tone for the rest of the pieces that came after. He also stated that it was originally intended to be the opening introduction theme, but "Red Wings" was chosen instead.

Sonic the Hedgehog 2
In the January 1993 interview with the game's programmer Yuji Naka published in the Beep! magazine, he commented on the game's 3D-stylised special stage, stating that it was conceived at the start of the game's development and was eventually implemented despite Naka being forced to work with rougher image quality. He also stated that the camera-view behind Sonic's spiny back running towards the Chaos Emerald in the final game was something that he was hoping to add. Him and the team also thought of having more "cliffs and valleys" in the special stage, but this idea was scrapped.

Sonic the Hedgehog 2
In the January 1993 interview with the game's programmer Yuji Naka published in the Beep! magazine, he was asked when development began. He responded:

"It was around November of last year. At that time, it was just me and one other programmer. Then we added a third person, and after that we gradually increased the team size. However, like always, I feel like I’ve left something out of the game. There’s still so much I want to add. For Sonic 2, we had to remove so much due to memory limitations. We actually made about five more zones, but in the end, we had to cut them all. We actually cut one zone at the absolute very last minute. Even though it was basically complete, we couldn’t use it because of a lack of memory. There just wasn’t enough space."

Dead Rising
In the August 2006 interview with the game's assistant producer Yutaka Haruki published in the XCN (Xbox Community Network), he stated that the team had considered allowing players to upload photos they had taken in-game to the Internet, but they were ultimately unable to implement it into the final game.

The model for Pac-Man when walking around the Museum Hub contains 8 different face models. Only 3 of these are used in the final game, with another 3 appearing to be placeholders, and the last 2 resembling the hurt and dying animations from Pac-Man World. In addition, an unused idle animation used in Pac-Man World can be found in the game’s files, depicting Pac-Man juggling and then eating pellets.

Within the data for Chapter 2 are alternate graphics for the chapter's final cutscene, in which Spoiler:Kris creates a Dark Fountain within their living room. Most of these graphics go unused; one set is repurposed for the film that plays in the theater in Queen's mansion, showing Spoiler:the Knight creating a Dark Fountain, but it's cut off at the top.
