Silent Hill: The Short Message
2
Throughout 2022, there were several leaks in regards to the existence of Silent Hill: The Short Message. First, screenshots were leaked of a playable teaser for the game, where it was known under the working title "Silent Hill: Sakura". Then, in both September and December of that year, the game received age ratings in both South Korea and Taiwan, respectively. Additionally, when Konami began hiring for upcoming projects based on Silent Hill, one of the projects was an unannounced in-house game, which would later turn out to be Silent Hill: The Short Message.

Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts
2
The vehicle-building gameplay of Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts has been claimed by many Banjo-Kazooie fans, often with an underlying anti-Microsoft or pro-Nintendo console war motive, to have been a corporate mandate from Microsoft to Rare, who supposedly wanted to make another 3D platformer like the previous games in the series. However, this is a complete lie as the only known influence on Nuts & Bolts from Microsoft was that they wanted Rare to make games aimed toward a younger demographic. Otherwise, the creative decisions made with Nuts & Bolts were entirely on Rare's development team, which was burned out by 3D platformers and genuinely believed that vehicle-building was a natural evolution of the genre.

Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS
subdirectory_arrow_right Super Smash Bros. for Wii U (Game)
3
On August 18th and 19th, 2014, several weeks before Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS launched in Japan, one of the most influential leaks in the series occurred. Footage of the gameplay and the roster (including fighters who were not announced by Nintendo at the time) were uploaded to 4chan, and then YouTube. The legitimacy of the leaks were brought into question by fans (such as the consistency of the rosters compared to the one that was shown at E3 that year), with some speculating that the leaks originated from an employee connected to the Entertainment Software Ratings Board (ESRB), leading fans to refer to the leak as the ESRB leak. It was not until Nintendo took down the YouTube videos very shortly after they were uploaded when they were confirmed to be legitimate. Days later, Shulk would be revealed for the game in a Japanese Nintendo Direct, confirming the rest of the game's unannounced roster.

In 2023, it was discovered that the leaker was a child of a Nintendo of America employee. According to a DidYouKnowGaming? video researching the history of various video game leaks, the employee recorded footage of the game in action, which would be sent to the ESRB for review. The child gained access to it and shared the footage with his friends, before spreading out of control. Nintendo of America fired the employee shortly after word got out.

Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door
subdirectory_arrow_right Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door (Game)
1
Both the original GameCube release and the Nintendo Switch remake are rated E by the Entertainment Software Ratings Board (ESRB), but the GameCube version's rating was simply given the descriptor "Mild Cartoon Violence". The remake’s ESRB rating was updated to replace it with the descriptors "Mild Fantasy Violence" and "Mild Suggestive Themes". These "Mild Suggestive Themes" most likely refer to flirtatious dialogue (i.e. "Aren’t you a fine specimen of a man"; "Perhaps if I…grabbed you and gave you a little sugar") and a character with a large chest/exaggerated proportions, referencing Madame Flurrie.

Sonic Classic Collection
2
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.
Yoshi's Story
subdirectory_arrow_right Mario (Franchise)
1
Yoshi's Story was the first Mario series game to be rated E for Everyone instead of K-A for Kids to Adults due to the changeover by the ESRB from the previously used K-A rating in 1998.
Donkey Konga
2
The US version of Donkey Konga contains a cover of the song "Stupid Cupid" by Neil Sedaka. However, the reference to "loving lips of wine" is left uncensored despite the game being rated E for Everyone by the ESRB.
Donkey Konga
2
In the US version of Donkey Konga, a cover of the song "Rock This Town" by Stray Cats is featured. However, a reference to "Whiskey on the rocks" remains uncensored despite the game being rated E for Everyone by the ESRB.
Donkey Konga
4
The European version of Donkey Konga contains a cover of the song Tubthumping by Chumbawamba. The lyric "Pissing the night away" is censored as "Kissing the night away", but "He drinks a Whiskey drink, he drinks a Vodka drink. He drinks a Lager drink, he drinks a Cider drink" remains uncensored despite the game's 3+ rating.
My Stop Smoking Coach with Allen Carr
1
Despite being themed around tobacco addiction, My Stop Smoking Coach with Allen Carr was rated E and regional equivalents. The back of the UK and Australia boxes specify that the game is not suitable for children despite its rating.

Despicable Me: The Game
1
Despite being based on a children's movie and not being any more violent than its source material, Despicable Me: The Game recieved a 12 rating from PEGI in the UK for "violence". This could be because Gru's adopted daughters don't appear in the game, therefore he stays a villain for the entirety of the game and the violence could be seen as more questionable than if the game directly followed the film's plot.

Pooplers
1
Upon its initial release, Pooplers was, despite its young target audience, given an M rating by the ESRB for "blood", likely because one of the selectable poop colors in the game is red. Despite this M rating being featured in the game's trailer, the game would eventually be re-evaluated to an E10+ rating for merely "mild blood".

LittleBigPlanet
1
The description for the level "Frying Saucers" contains the only use of profanity in the series: "Face the big alien boss, and kick his big alien ass." As such, this is the only game in the series to receive an E10+ rating from the Entertainment Software Ratings Board.
