Fallout 3
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.

WWE 2K22
In the files of WWE 2K22 can be found base dialogue and social media interactions for a scrapped female MyRISE storyline that would have seen Bray Wyatt possess Dana Brooke and turning her into “The Shiend”, to get revenge on his former associate Alexa Bliss. The storyline would have included a Hell In a Cell match between Alexa Bliss and "The Shiend", and a "Elimination Chamber of Horrors" match. A "Firefly Funhouse set" area can also be found in the game's files that would have presumably been used in some of this story's cutscenes.

This storyline was ultimately scrapped as Windham Rotunda (Bray Wyatt) was released from WWE on July 31st, 2021 due to "budget cuts".

Demon's Souls
Within the game's files is a gun with the model ID "WP_A_9999" that when loaded is revealed to bear an identical resemblance to the Lancer from Gears of War, originally released as an Xbox 360 exclusive. It's unknown why this weapon wasn't removed from the game considering how out of place it is with the rest of Demon's Souls, but the most likely theory is that it was leftover test data originally stemming from when From Software developed the Xbox 360 exclusive Chromehounds.

Although there are a total of 20 unused Mini-Cons in the game's data, most of them are just text strings. However, two were extensively worked on before being scrapped. The first one was called "Endgame" and would have summoned large "holes in the fabric of space" that would have sucked enemies and objects into them. The second dropped Mini-Con is called "Bug-Out" and would have called upon "Emergency Warp Gates". Although Endgame was scrapped, his model was reused for in-game Mini-Cons Discord, Twister, and Overwatch.

Shining Force II
According to the game's development team in an interview published in the Megadrive Fan Attack Special book in 1993, originally the Achilles Sword could cast Bolt, but if it was used against Talos, he would absorb all the damage and it would not hit the surrounding enemies. The team later changed this so Talos could not be targeted with magic at all.

Batman: Arkham Knight
If the player detonates explosive gel inside Penguin's vault, the stack of bombs turns into an unused destroyed Titan canister model that appears to have been carried over from Batman: Arkham City, although it is impossible to go back inside the vault to interact with it.

Ratchet & Clank: Up Your Arsenal
An unused unique type of crate is hidden in two locations in the final version of the game, but are invisible and can only be activated with the use of a level editor. Known as the "Upgrader Crate", the concept would have been to instantly upgrade Ratchet's lowest level weapon currently owned by one level upon breaking it.

According to Insomniac Games Developer Mike Stout, the concept was scrapped on account of detracting from the fun of using the weapons to gather XP and grind the levels/evolution into said weapon's evolved form.

The crates can be made to appear in Holostar Studios and on board the Phoenix during the rescue mission at the games climax.

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
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.

Resident Evil Zero
The idea of not having "item boxes" in the game was based on "Sweet Home". The team wanted to remove it, so that it would feel a lot harder to play.
