Tekken 3
Jun was planned to be added into the arcade version of the game, but was later cut some time during development. Her data still exists within the game’s code and can be accessed using MAME cheat files. When added back in, she uses Nina’s character model and Jin’s moveset. Her voice and portrait does exist, but there are assets taken from Tekken 2.

Mario Kart: Double Dash!!
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.

Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U
While battle damage is used for Little Mac in the Wii U version, data suggests that other characters were planned to have similar effects. This can be seen in unused textures for R.O.B. in the game's data which seem to show battle damage. This is a remnant to Super Smash Bros. Brawl in which characters were also planned to have battle damage, but were left out.

SoulCalibur II
There's data within the game's files for two unused characters, Wovama and Q.Takagi. When hacked into the game, both characters use Cassandra's model and will randomly pick a weapon and moveset. While the model and movesets for both character's were never created, their names do appear on the verses screen. But when used in game, Wovama's name remains blank under her health meter, and Q.Takagi's name will change to Spawn. Because neither character have models, it is speculated that they were cut very early in the game's development.

Sonic Heroes
All 12 playable characters have dialogue in the game that goes completely unused. The audio references an object that's referred to as an Omochao-themed gate. This gate would've been opened via the use of a nearby Omochao. However, no such "Omochao Gate" appears anywhere in the game, and Omochao himself does not physically appear in any level of the game either.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate
Files for Dragonite from the Pokémon series suggest it may have been planned to be summoned from the Poké Ball. While it does not appear as an assist character in the final game, it does appear as a background character in the Kalos Pokémon League stage. Two models for the character exist, with one more in line of those summoned by the player, featuring higher resolution textures.
