One of the random title screen splash messages "Woo, /v/!", a reference to the dedicated video game imageboard "/v/" on website 4chan, was removed from the PC Java version of the game in update ver.1.17 released in 2021. It's unknown why it was removed, neither was it mentioned in the game's official patch notes, but it's presumably due to the controversial nature of the website which Microsoft may wish to distance themselves from.

During the game's early years, the game's creator Markus "Notch" Persson had heavily promoted the game on a number of websites including 4chan, which its success he partly attributed to the website.

The Hindu goddess Kali's design was initially more revealing, however during the game's beta, her appearance was changed to have her more clothed, in addition to new voice lines and updated abilities.

It's thought that her redesign was due to receiving backlash from practicing Hindus, who also objected to her inclusion. However, it's also possible this was done due to working with Chinese publisher Tencent to make the game more family friendly.

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.

In an update, more advertisements were added to the game which would appear during replay moments of matches. Despite the game already featuring advertisements, these additional ones received backlash from the community and were disabled from appearing again.

A member of EA's community team posted a statement via reddit:
"Earlier this week, the team turned on ad placements in EA SPORTS UFC 4 that appeared during the “Replay” moments in gameplay. This type of advertising inventory is not new to the UFC franchise, though we have typically reserved displaying ads to specific main menu tiles or Octagon logo placement. It is abundantly clear from your feedback that integrating ads into the Replay and overlay experience is not welcome.

The advertisements have been disabled by the team and we apologize for any disruption to gameplay that players may have experienced. We realize that this should have been communicated with players ahead of time and that’s on us. We want to make sure our players have the best possible experience playing EA SPORTS UFC 4, so ad integration in the Replay and overlay experience will not be reappearing in the future. Thank you for your continued feedback on EA SPORTS UFC 4."

World of Warcraft
In the Battle for Azeroth expansion there is a Kingdom Hearts reference. Specifically, if the player goes to the Thresher's Wharf area of Stormsong valley and climb a tall structure they can find three Beleaguered Watchmen looking out dramatically at the water. The way they are positioned, dressed, and how the scene is choreographed, make them look like the three original human characters from Kingdom Hearts: Sora, Kairi, and Riku.

There is an item in the game that was originally called "Switch". This item had it's name changed to "Light Switch" in a version 1.2.0. It's possible the name change came about so that players would not confuse the aforementioned item with the "Nintendo Switch" which is another obtainable item in the game.

When Octo was brought to the west, Octo's color scheme was changed. This may have been done to avoid comparisons to racist stereotypes of black people. Interestingly, when the game finally saw a Japanese release no GameCube, they reverted Octo's color sceme back. Wario Land 3 also retains his original appearance in all regions.
