Astro Boy: Omega Factor
The game went through massive changes when it was ported from Japan to the US. The Japanese version only has Easy and Difficult difficulty settings. The International versions removed these in favor of Normal and Hard, with Normal as a re-balanced version of the original Difficult. The international versions also add a health meter for the bosses, language selection, a couple new enemies, adjusts some of the level layouts, and fixes some of the slowdown.

Shenmue II
The Jet Cola vending machines found in the US and European versions of the game were originally Coca-Cola machines. Sega only acquired the rights to use the brand name in the Japanese release, so the vending machines had to be changed for the others versions.

Dynamite Headdy
After defeating a boss in the international version, the player has to collect 13 continue icons in order to get a continue. In the Japanese version, however, only 10 continue icons are needed. In addition to this, the international version starts the player with no continues, while the Japanese version starts with two.

The Adventures of Bayou Billy
The Adventures of Bayou Billy is much harder than Mad City, the Japanese version of the game:

• Enemies in the beat-em-up stages move faster, deal twice as much damage, and take twice as many hits to kill.
• The optional alligator fights in the first few levels of Mad City are mandatory in Bayou Billy.
• The amount of ammo available at the beginning of the shooting stages is cut down from 150 to 50.
• There is less fuel for the car in the driving stages.

Pocket Card Jockey
In the Japanese version, a button with an image of a whip can be used in the final turn to speed up the horse. In the US version, the image of the whip was replaced with a green "Go!" button. This was likely changed to avoid complaints over animal abuse.

Super Mario Sunshine
In the Japanese version, Isle Delfino is named Dolphic Island. However, both the English and Japanese release use the same English voice acting, so in the in-flight infomercial still mentions Isle Delfino in the Japanese version.

Faceball 2000
Faceball 2000 is a port of an earlier first person shooter maze game called MIDI Maze for the Atari ST. The game constructed multiplayer networks using the MIDI interface, and up to 16 computers could be networked in a "MIDI Ring" by connecting one computer's MIDI-OUT port to the next computer's MIDI-IN port.

The Game Boy version of Faceball 2000 retained this networking capability, and is the only Game Boy game capable of supporting 16 players simultaneously. It did so by connecting multiple copies of the Game Boy's Four Player Adapter to one another, so that each additional adapter added another two players up to the maximum. Seven such adapters were needed for a full 16 player experience. It currently holds the Guinness World Record for "Most players on a single Game Boy multiplayer session".

Mario Party 6
In the European and Australian versions, the four luck-based minigames "Same Is Lame", "Trap Ease Artist", "Pitifall", and "Trick or Tree" are not featured in the Endurance Alley game mode due to the unavoidable possibility of the player being forced to break their win streak.

Rayman 3D
Though the game's North American boxart is nearly identical to the original Rayman 2's Nintendo 64 boxart, the PAL boxart instead features Rayman holding a Yellow Lum and smiling to the camera. This boxart is also mirrored in the German release, most likely to prevent the rating label from obscuring Raymans face.

The Amiga port uses a different piece of classical music as Frederick II's theme. Bach's "Goldberg Variations, 4th Variation" is normally used as the theme for Frederick, while the Amiga version uses Mozart's "Rondo Alla Turca" instead.

Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land
The color on the game's PAL boxart is noticeably darker than the North American boxart. Because of this, Meta Knight's cape is hard to discern against the cover's background. Kirby and the game title are also a darker shade of pink, and the Nintendo Logo is next to the game's rating box rather than underneath it.

Mega Man 8
In the Saturn version, Cut Man and Wood Man from Mega Man and Mega Man 2 make appearances as mini-bosses in Duo's mini-stage and Search Man's stage respectively. The former is optional, while the latter is mandatory. A remix of their themes also plays while battling them.
World of Warcraft
The Chinese version of World of Warcraft is censored to hide instances of blood, gore, and death, and replaced instances of bone or gore with other objects such as sandbags and bread. Undead creatures have also been edited to remove any graphic or gory details.

The Wii U Virtual Console release has all World-e levels unlocked by default, due to the Wii U's lack of e-Reader support.
