Skies of Arcadia
Exclusive to the GameCube re-release is a set of unlockable bonus content colloquially referred to by fans as "The Three Secrets". The requirements for earning this content is as follows:
•All discoveries need to be found and reported
•The number of opened Treasure Chests must be at 90% or above
•All Crew Members must be acquired
•All Moonfish need to be captured and given to Maria's bird Piccolo
•All Wanted Battle bounties must be found, beaten, and reported
•Beat all four optional battles with Piastol and finish her story
•Defeat over 2500 enemies
•Defeat all four Sky beasts
•Win 12 non-story Ship Battles

Upon meeting this criteria, The Three Secrets can then be acquired:
1. The Mystery Merchant will now sell the Sky Fang sword to Vyse.
2. A secret discovery can be found on a peak of a rocky overpass in High Sky just outside of Sailor's Island. This discovery is a Golden Hamachou, and does not appear in the Journal after it is found.
3. At Crescent Isle, a hidden boss Spoiler:Vigoro, who in the GameCube version became an Air Pirate following his third encounter with the main characters can be fought.

Castlevania: Symphony of the Night
Attachment
Right before Richter fights Dracula, the two have a short conversation about his return and why humans summoned him back in the first place. In the original English localization of the game, Dracula says the line:

"What is a man? A miserable little pile of secrets."

This line was not in the original Japanese script nor was it written by translator Jeremy Blaustein for the game's English release. It originates from the 1967 essay "Antimémoires" by novelist André Malraux, France's Minister of Cultural Affairs at the time it was published.

Dobutsu no Mori e+
Dōbutsu no Mori e+ is the only version of the original Animal Crossing to not be packaged with a promotional memory card (even the N64 Dōbutsu no Mori included a themed Controller Pak). This is because the game's extra content expands the maximum file size to 72 blocks: 57 for town data, 5 for saved letters at the post office, 5 for saved patterns at Able Sisters, 1 for NES save data, and 4 for travel data. While GameCube memory cards were officially available in larger 251-block and 1019-block sizes, all first-party cards bundled with games were manufactured exclusively in the minimum 59-block size.

Deltarune
Within the data for the itch.io Mac 1.00 version of Chapter 2 is an early version of "Faint Courage", written in a lower key and lacking certain instrumental tracks compared to the final arrangement. The filename for this rendition is "audio_menu.ogg", implying that it was originally written for the Chapter 2 main menu before being refitted for the game over screen. The released game instead uses "Faint Glow" (which is replaced with "Before the Story" after completing the chapter), titled "menu.ogg" in the game's files, for the main menu. All other releases and revisions of Chapter 2 remove this unused song from the game's data.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate
With the Shadow Moses Island stage making a return, Snake's exclusive Codec Call Smash Taunts also return (which are triggered by rapidly pressing the down-taunt button once as Snake on the stage). However, no new codec calls were recorded, meaning it will only work for characters that were previously playable in Super Smash Bros. Brawl. In fact, all but one of the old Brawl codecs were kept intact so they now contain many awkward slights and inaccuracies.

These include Brawl still being directly namedropped by the Colonel and Otacon instead of Ultimate during Jigglypuff and Sonic's codecs respectively, Mei Ling and Snake still discussing Sheik's transformation move that she no longer has as of Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U as well as the two also referring to Lucario as having his old "purple flames" instead of his new "blue" ones, and Pokemon Trainer still being referred to with male pronouns despite having a new female alt in Ultimate among other things.

The only codec that was edited for Ultimate was Link's, where the Clawshot was excluded from the list of weapons Otacon reports to Snake, as Link's redesign based on The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild removed it from his moveset.

Tapper
The bonus stage music that is used in Tapper is a slight variation of the song "Here Comes the King", a jingle written to promote the alcoholic beverage Budweiser which was the first sponsor of Tapper and featured the drink's logos plastered on multiple screens in the game. After Anheuser-Busch ended their sponsorship and the game was revised as "Root Beer Tapper", some song names needed to be changed to avoid legal trouble.

Back 4 Blood
In Back 4 Blood's Beta there was an unintentionally defective ladder in a warehouse section of the game that accidentally caused the players character to die upon using it. The game's devs decided to poke fun at this, after fixing said glitch in the final release of the game, by adding graffiti on the wall adjacent to the ladder that tells player to use caution when using it. They also had Mum comment on the "suspicious" ladder when she approaches it by telling the other characters to be careful on it.

Marvel vs. Capcom 2: New Age of Heroes
In the home console release, the clock in the Clock Tower stage is linked to the console's own internal clock and therefore shows the actual real-world time during matches.

Outside Merlin's House in Traverse Town in Kingdom Hearts, the likeness of an owl can be found on the broken archway in front of the house as well as in the form of several small statues surrounding the building.

Outside Merlin's House in Hollow Bastion/Radiant Garden in every subsequent game, this owl's presence is reduced to an emblem hanging over Merlin's front door.

These owls are a reference to Merlin's pet owl Archimedes, a character from Disney's 1963 film adaptation of the T.H. White novel "The Sword in the Stone", who does not appear in the Kingdom Hearts series.

Devil May Cry 3: Dante's Awakening
According to the game's character designer, Hiroyuki Nara, the model for Dante was repurposed data for Trish from Devil May Cry 2.

"The characters' speed in the backup data was completely different from how it was in the retail release. The final motions had also been programmed in separately by the software guys, so in order to replicate them, I had to place a television running the original game next to my work monitor and eyeball it. (laughs) So the Dante in "DMC 3" was actually made using Trish's data from "DMC 2". (laughs) We had all sorts of problems with that damn backup data from "DMC 1"... "

Street Fighter IV
Attachment
In Super Street Fighter IV, Hugo from Final Fight can be seen in the background in the Metro City stage, 'Skyscraper Under Construction'. When the Ultra Street Fighter IV announcement trailer was released, two Hugos could be seen together both in playable form and in the background. This was later fixed in the final version, if the player selects Hugo to play in 'Skyscraper Under Construction', the other Hugo in the background is replaced by a different character.

Dead or Alive 5
Critical Bursts were not originally going to be featured in the game. The staff did not see them as a priority at the time and did not add them to the demo. However, the game's director, Yohei Shinbori, thought they were an interesting idea and added the mechanic into the game's E3 playable build. After receiving positive feedback, an improved version of Critical Bursts became part of the final product.

Originally in the game's demo, Power Blows could be executed multiple times in a match. Since it was too easy to hit the opponent with Power Blows, they were limited to once per round in the final game.

The original cover athlete is former Green Bay Packers quarterback Brett Favre. Five days before the game was released in North America, Favre had been traded to the New York Jets. Rather than recalling all copies, EA allowed fans to print out a brand new cover featuring Favre now in the New York Jets uniform.
