Cool Spot
Attachment According to an Electronic Gaming Monthly preview article, Cool Spot was originally a Reversi clone like Spot: The Video Game, titled Spot II - the graphics used in Cool Spot seem to have been reused from cutscenes in the cancelled game.
Batman: The Video Game
Attachment Sunsoft's NES Batman originally had cutscenes using the comic book iteration of Batman, but these had to be scrapped and replaced with digitized renditions of Micheal Keaton's live-action Batman as the game's artist was not aware that the Batman comics and movies were separate licenses. The Joker, however, was always depicted as Jack Nicholson's portrayal, even in prototypes using the comic version of Batman.

Sonic Classic Collection
When Sonic Classic Collection was rated by the British Board of Film Classification, they rated three pieces of content not present in the final game:
•A trailer for Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood
•A "history of Sonic" documentary video
•An unknown item titled "GAMEPLAY FOOTAGE", which was most likely a video. However, all other non-interactive elements in the game such as the credits and aforementioned videos have a runtime, which GAMEPLAY FOOTAGE does not.
Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl 2
Attachment Patrick's Super move was originally going to feature a unique squashed model for each character - these were ultimately scrapped for unknown reasons, with Patrick simply slamming down his rock on the opponent without any transformations or unique animations attached.

Suikoden II
Attachment In the Demo ending, other than the dialogue used in the skit, there is unused dialogue present suggesting some parts of the ending were scrapped:

”I think that‘s a wise decision.”
”The normal ending is about to start.”
”The best ending is about to start.”
”You‘re wrong, brother Mukumuku. I heard that it‘s not done yet.”

It's worth noting that Mukumuku is silent in the demo while Mekumeku just doesn't load, but is present in memory. Whether it was scrapped or is still unlockable is unknown.

Also in the room, there are 4 maids surrounding Riou just out of bounds at the bottom of the screen. After some testing, it was found to be a developer trick, wherein the player is always in control of Riou, and when interreacting with any of the maids, the demo will end early.

3D Pocket Pool
Attachment 3D Pocket Pool was at one point pitched to Nintendo as a Wario game titled Wario Pool. Developer Nick Pelling's website contains a GIF featuring the intro to the would-be Game Boy title, showing Wario sitting in his castle from Wario Land: Super Mario Land 3 and watching a sports newscast late at night. He then gets a telephone call from a reporter asking if he will be competing in a pool tournament the next day. Wario declines, saying he does not want any more "meaningless victories", until two new challengers appear on the newscast: a pair of literal pool sharks who insult Wario while being interviewed, motivating him to join the tournament and claim their heads as a trophy.
Also Appears On: Wario Pool (Game)
Toy Story 2: Buzz Lightyear to the Rescue!
When the PlayStation 2 was revealed in Japan, a demo was shown off of a fountain of spark particles. When this demo was shown to Jon Burton, founder of Traveller's Tales, he coded an identical tech demo for the first PlayStation as a joke. This tech demo would ultimately end up in the files of Toy Story 2: Buzz Lightyear to the Rescue!, unused, by accident.

Tak and the Power of Juju
A graphic designer named Eyad Arabi was commissioned to make several logo animations for THQ. One of these animations that didn’t make the cut involved a rhinoceros being scared by a bunch a flowers in the shape of the THQ logo.

This logo animation can be found on his portfolio YouTube page with the game’s title, suggesting it was intended for use for Tak and the Power of Juju.
Bob the Builder
A video of the Bethesda Softworks logo can be found in the files of Bob the Builder for PlayStation 2. Bethesda is not known to have had any involvement in Bob the Builder, so it unknown why the video is in the code.
