Mortal Kombat 3
There are a lot of unused sprites of Motaro left over in the game's memory, including:

• Motaro raising up his front legs.
• Motaro doing his teleport move.
• Motaro performing an arm lift as if he were going to throw the opponent over his head.
• Motaro raising his arm, along with moving mouth sprites that suggests this would be some sort of taunt.

There is also an unused win screen for him that would not show up until Mortal Kombat Trilogy. This evidence suggests that Motaro was probably going to be a playable character at one point.

Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3
Before the game came out, President Hiroshi Matsuyama was asked in an interview about "jutsu clashing", which had been removed in Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 2.

He said "Jutsu clashing using the repetition of the O button can be seen in the free battles of Storm 1 is not available in this game, but the jutsu clashing using button inputs that can be seen in the single player boss battles of Storm 2 exist in this new installment."

Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars
There is an unused status ailment in game. When forced to appear, it behaves similarly to the "Berserk" status effect featured in many RPGs of the time; the victim of the status effect will be uncontrollable and attack random targets until it either wears off or they fall in battle.

Frogger: He's Back!
Two pieces of game footage that play during the end credits contain material that don't actually appear in the main game. First, the baby frogs don't burst when Frogger approaches them. Second, the barrels from the Sewer Zone don't explode when hopped on. It's possible that the footage was recorded before these features were removed later in development.

Kirby: Squeak Squad
The game contains an unused ability, "Block". It appears to be similar to the Triple Star ability, and is entirely functional beyond being intentionally disabled by making Kirby immediately lose the ability.

Freedom Planet
The developer originally wanted to add alternate outfit colours for the characters that would have been unlocked gradually through play, there was even going to be an option to customise both Carol's scarf and motorcycle colours.
But a problem with the software used to develop the game meant that swapping the colours of the characters at runtime caused graphical glitches, so it was ultimately cut.

Super Mario Sunshine
During the development of Super Mario Sunshine, the team planned for a multiplayer mode. One player would play as Mario and the other would play as Shadow Mario. When the players moved away from each other the camera would move out. There was even a function in the game's code to determine if a map belonged to the multiplayer mode of the game, entitled "SMS_isMultiplayerMap".

An unused Spell icon was seen in a screenshot of the game, probably implying that spells were going to be used in the game.

World of Warcraft
There is an unfinished instance that lays just north of Stratholme. It can be seen on the world map but is otherwise inaccessible without the use of glitches or exploits. It contains segments of Stratholme that are inaccessible through normal play including an untextured model of Naxxramus.

Through the use of glitches in 5.4.2, it was possible to fall out of the Naxxramas dungeon in Northrend, walk to a glitched instance of Stratholme, past the unused portal in Stratholme to find the unfinished model of Naxxramas.

The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask
An unused fishing mini game can be found in the game's data. It would have been similar to that of the fishing in Ocarina of Time. Fish and the owner of the fishing mini game can be spawned into the game by modifying the data, but using the fishing rod will frequently cause the game to crash.

Gods Eater Burst
A cutscene featuring Shio grabbing Alisa's breasts was removed in the North American version of the game. However, the English audio clip for the scene can still be found within the game's files.

Shenmue II
In the Dreamcast version, it's possible to transfer save data from original Shenmue to Shenmue II. However, as to be expected, this was not an option in the Xbox release.

Sonic Classic Collection
Originally, the games Sonic Spinball, Sonic 3D Blast and Dr. Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine were to be included as part of the collection, however, they were cut from the game during development.

This would explain why sprites from Sonic Spinball and Sonic 3D Blast can be seen in the game's credits.
