In an update for the game released in November, 2020, two in-game podcasts featuring journalist Helen Lewis were replaced by Ubisoft after receiving complaints from concerned gamers. This was due to Lewis being known in the public for having transphobic views and writing a number of articles criticizing legislation which were in support of making gender transitioning easier.

Ubisoft told in a statement that the speaker profiles for the scripted in-game podcasts were chosen by an external producer that worked with the development team. They promised that in future they'd perform background checks on any future partners.

The Sombrero Guy from Autumn Mountain may have been planned to be a temporary party member just like Spike and Bone Goomba, but was left out. Altering the code through save file hacking makes the character fully functional and adds an otherwise unused graphic to the pause menu.

In March of 2018, a passive effect called "Sketchek’s Bequest" was added to the Pyro's weapon the Axtinguisher which granted the player a speed boost after killing a burning opponent. This was named in honor of the YouTuber known as Sketchek, a prominent Pyro player in the community, who in 2015 claimed in a video to have a "terminal illness" that was getting worse and had later presumably died. However in 2019, Sketchek returned and stated that he lied about dying because he wanted to retire from the game as it had "ruined his life" and he wanted to "go out with a bang." The effect was subsequently removed in an update.

Six of the game's cars (Audi, Cadillac, Mazda, and Volkswagen, and two Porsches) were planned to be usable in the game, but were cut due to time constraints. However, data can be found for said cars in the PlayStation 2 version.

Unused text in the European version of the game regarding the Nintendo 64's Rumble Pak feature suggests the game was originally planned to utilize the rumble feature in some way.

In the early stages of development, Pulseman was originally meant to play similarly to Magical Taluluto (based on the Shonen Jump manga of the same name), the first game directed by Ken Sugimori who was also the director for Pulseman.
For example, he originally had the ability to turn into a fighter jet and fly by pressing the jump button twice, but this was scrapped, as it didn’t fit his character.

20 of the villagers throughout the series were planned to appear in the game, but were cut. These villagers eventually made it into the "Welcome amiibo" updated re-release of Animal Crossing: New Leaf.

At one point there was going to be a secret truck in Monster Truck Madness 2, a yellow 68 Camero called "Chuck's Car," created by 3D modeler Chuck Carson. If one types "CHUCK" during a race, the game will still display the message "Restart the game to drive Chuck's Car." The vehicle was removed to avoid legal issues with Chevrolet.

Crash Bandicoot: The Wrath of Cortex
The original PlayStation 2 version of the game had long load times that averaged around 47 seconds. According to the founder of Traveler's Tales, this was a consequence of a small mini-game intended to be incorporated during development.

Originally, you could move Crash through hyperspace during his falling animation and collect Wumpa Fruit. Any Wumpa Fruit collected would be added to your totals when the level loaded.

Due to a fraudulent patent Namco had over loading screen mini-games beginning with Tekken's PlayStation port, it had to be removed. However, time constraints meant Traveler's Tales could not fix these loading times before release. The Greatest Hits re-release shrunk the loading times down to a mere 17 seconds.

By datamining a demo build of the game, an image of Donkey Kong Jr. can be found, suggesting that he may have been planned to appear in the game instead of Diddy Kong. Interestingly, Diddy Kong's internal filename in the final version is listed as "dk_jr," suggesting that Diddy's appearance may have been a later addition.

Jak II
"Construction Site" is a relatively unimportant level in the game, with only a cutscene being played there and little else for the player to do. It is very likely, however, that this level was at one point meant to have a bigger role in the game. The level has a lot of collision at places that are not normally reachable, and there are text entries for unused mission names, including "Climb Construction Site" and "Find Baron at Construction Site"

Jak 3

In a preview build of the game, it was possible to play as Jak from Jak II. Although this Secret is not present in the final version, it's still possible to trigger it by editing the game's memory, in the same place Secrets are kept track of.

In the prototype version of the game, Raidou is given an end card sequence, hinting that he would have been unlockable in the final version.

"After all, this is all it is."
A long time had passed since Raidou was expelled from the Mugen Tenshinryuu village. He had only hungered for power ever since. He fought all and every fighter and claimed his technique his own.
Even as he received the invitation to participate in the tournament, he felt this might sate his hunger for power.
However, it seems all was in vain.
Raidou called for thunder and disappeared into the mist...
