Wild Woody
subdirectory_arrow_right Shady Lewd Kart (Game)
On April 1st, 2024, Shady Lewd Kart added Wild Woody from the game of the same name as a free DLC character. Notably, it was revealed in a comment on the DLC's announcement trailer that Sega did not actually own the rights to the Wild Woody IP, instead being owned by the original creators. This was further emphasized on the DLC's Steam page, which includes a disclaimer that Shady Corner Games was in no way associated with Sega, and that they were given permission to add Wild Woody to the game by the creators of the IP. Wild Woody's original voice actor Joseph Kerska also reprised his role for the appearance and a story campaign, and that despite the date it was released, the DLC was not considered an April Fools joke.

Inverse Ninjas vs. The Public Domain
Felix the Cat, the new playable character announced alongside the Kickstarter campaign for the game's story mode DLC RULE of Inverse Ninjas, was decided through a Twitter poll. The other three characters on the poll were The Continental Op (a private investigator character created by Dashiell Hammett in 1923 whose copyright expired in 2019), Gnorm Gnat (an insect character created by Jim Davis prior to Garfield who entered the public domain as a result of his original comics not having a copyright notice), and Tarcis the Lover (a joke slot seemingly originating from a dating simulator made by this game's co-developer Trainwreck Studios, and that voting for was actively discouraged by the developers).

BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle
Prior to release, Arc System Works announced that the game would feature twenty characters as paid DLC for the game's first season, meaning that the game would launch with only half of its planned roster. This prompted backlash from fans, who pointed out that the game reused assets from past fighting games and that half of Team RWBY would be sold separately while the other half was in the base game. In response, Toshimichi Mori announced that the remaining Team RWBY members (Blake Belladonna and Yang Xiao Long) would be free of charge, and that the costs for the characters would not exceed that of the game's base retail cost.

Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana
The PlayStation 4 version of Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana only had a few DLC costumes, which included the Silver Armour for Adol, the Eternian Scholar for Laxia, and the optional colour changes that Alison would prepare for the characters at a certain chapter in the game. The costumes themselves are references. Adol's Silver Armour is a reference to the default look he has had, most notably in the first and second Ys games and Ys: The Oath in Felghana, while Laxia's Eternian Scholar is directly based on the Eternians from Ys VIII itself.

For the Nintendo Switch port, more costumes were added for the 6 playable characters. All characters received the "Deserted Pirate" costumes, which follow on the theme of Pirates that were often mentioned up until the fight against Captain Reed in Ys VIII, while Adol, Laxia, Ricotta and Dana all receive "Tropical Swimwear" attire, which gives them swimsuits of various designs.

Final Fantasy VII Rebirth
In an interview with the game's co-director/designer/programmer Naoki Hamaguchi published in The Washington Post on July 2nd, 2021, he reflected on the evolution of Final Fantasy VII Remake's battle system, which drew inspiration from the original game's Active Time Battle (ATB) system. Hamaguchi expressed satisfaction with its current form "in which the strategic element of the command-based battle from the original co-exists with the real-time, action-oriented battle". Additionally, the "Intermission" episode featured in FFVII Remake Intergrade introduced combo moves where Yuffie and Sonon team up, which Hamaguchi stated he wanted to try leveraging along with other elements from "Intermission" as he worked on what would become Final Fantasy VII Rebirth.
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate
Sephiroth's inclusion as a DLC fighter was apparently so top secret that even certain members of Square Enix had not known that the villain was going to be included in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate until the corresponding show-stealing announcement at The Game Awards 2020 was made. Even Square Enix employee and Final Fantasy VII Rebirth director Naoki Hamaguchi was quite shocked and stated:

"[...] it was actually extremely confidential that he was even going to be in it, [...] So, none of the dev team knew, including myself. So it was more like when the whole world knew it, and that's when we knew it like, 'Oh, I had no idea!'"

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate
subdirectory_arrow_right Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl (Game)
When it was announced that Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl's paid DLC characters were due to be revealed, it was with a tweet reading "Back to the lab again". Some theorized this was a tease for either Jimmy Neutron or Jenny Wakeman, both highly-requested characters with a technology theme. However, this seems to actually be a reference to a livestream by Super Smash Bros. Ultimate YouTuber GimR from two days earlier. GimR advertised the livestream for days prior, promising a new technique that would change the game's competitive scene, only to fail to actually start the stream due to technical issues. During the time he was live, he played a looping intermission animation depicting him as Dexter from the Cartoon Network series Dexter's Laboratory and playing the song "Back to the Lab" by Prince Paul and Wordsworth for over an hour. This mistake would become a meme within the Super Smash Bros. community for a short while afterwards. Ultimately, Jenny, Rocko and Hugh Neutron, the latter two not being related to technology, were revealed, and GimR would separately reveal the promised new technique, the "Slingshot", two days after the failed livestream.

Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed
Attachment When he was first released as DLC, General Winter's All-Star move effects had communist motifs. However, following complaints from the Russian populace about the portrayal of the USSR military as under-equipped in his source game Company of Heroes 2, and a voluntary recall of said game from Sega in that region, an update in 2013 would replace the hammer & sickle with a generic red star in all regions.

Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Dual Destinies
Game designer Yuki Nakamura, who was in charge of writing the DLC episode "Turnabout Reclaimed", used the concept of "lighthearted fun" to set it apart from the episodes in the base game. The episode featuring an orca and taking place in an aquarium was the first thing she decided on, but she struggled to come up with the rest of the story. One scrapped idea had the orca stealing treasure from the aquarium and attacking people by the shore as it escaped to sea, with the mystery involving the reason for the orca's behavior. The draft for this version of the episode opened with Bobby Fulbright and some guards vaguely referring to somebody escaping. This was intended to mislead players into thinking that they were referring to Simon Blackquill, before it was ultimately revealed to be the orca.
Dark Souls
The Artorias of the Abyss DLC for Dark Souls was notoriously convoluted to access for newer players, requiring them to quit and reload their game in a cove at Darkroot Basin behind the Hydra boss to even start the sequence to get to the DLC levels. However, returning players had a better idea of how to access the DLC before it released by discerning the location where the levels are accessed through the DLC’s trailer and certain NPC dialogue.
Five Nights at Freddy's AR: Special Delivery
Attachment On February 1, 2024, Illumix made a Reddit post announcing that the game would be delisted from app stores by the end of the following day, and that the game would be sunsetted on March 14. For the final six weeks that the game would be online, Illumix started an event called "Final Delivery," which would give every user the chance to do anything the game provided for free by translating all the purchasable items into Faz-Coins, including the game's DLC, "Dark Circus: Encore!". The event rewards would provide large amounts of parts, Faz-Coins, Remnants, and other items for the player to use freely.
Postal III
On January 29, 2024, the Steam version of Postal III received a large content update adding various features and improvements originally made by the developers of the Zoom Platform version of the game as well as fixes and content by the series' fan community. The update notably included streamlined mod support, a high quality release of the official soundtrack, several bug and graphical fixes pointed out and contributed by players, updated versions of the game's official German and Japanese localizations, three new localizations in Portuguese/Brazilian, French and Polish translated by fans, and worldwide access to the previously Russian-only Fart Gun DLC.
Bubsy: Paws on Fire!
subdirectory_arrow_right Bit.Trip (Collection)
Bubsy: Paws on Fire! attempted to raise funds for DLC with a Kickstarter campaign before its launch, which would've added new levels with new themes, mini-games, costumes, and Commander Video from Bit.Trip as a guest character. The Kickstarter was heavily criticized for the confusing structure it had, where the funding goal would merely add extra one-liners and two costumes for Bubsy while the stretch goals were individual parts of a short extra world, known as the "Impossible World". The campaign did not reach its base goal, and Paws on Fire! recieved no DLC.
Mortal Kombat X
On the day of the game's release, the character Kung Jin was confirmed by writer Dominic Cianciolo to be the first homosexual character in the Mortal Kombat series. This was notably hinted at during a conversation with Raiden in Story mode:

Raiden: "Go to the Wu Shi Academy. Join the Shaolin, like Kung Lao before you."
Kung Jin: "I can't. They won't... accept-"
Raiden: "They care only about what is in your heart. Not whom your heart desires."

When Tanya was added as a DLC character, one of her prefight interactions with Jin also references his lack of interest in the opposite sex:

Tanya: "Quite a handsome Shaolin."
Kung Jin: "Barkin' up the wrong tree, sister."

In the DLC update, Ninja Gaiden Black, Ayane's kunai messages featured fully voiced dialogue, which was not a feature in the original version. In Ninja Gaiden Sigma, the text and dialogue that explained the controls were changed to reference both PlayStation 3 controls and altered mechanics.

Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin
According to the game's producer Tetsuya Nomura in a livestream on Square Enix's YouTube channel on January 26, 2023, he hinted that a sequel to the game was possible if word-of-mouth about the game spread through the DLC's completion and proves that it's a title that has "really resonated with everyone". However, it is important to note that Square Enix largely bases its new games on what will make money, so the odds of a sequel would still be unlikely even if it spread through word-of-mouth.

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: All Star Battle
In 2023, the character Leone Abbacchio was added to JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: All Star Battle R as a DLC character over ten years after the original game’s release. Despite being a main cast member of the fifth part of JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure, he had never had a playable experience in any game even when the other cast members were also playable, due to the developers having trouble trying to make his ability Moody Blues, which causes his opponents to replay their moves, viable for combat. This led to him becoming a very highly-requested fighter for the game before he was eventually added.
Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle
Attachment In the files of the Donkey Kong Adventure expansion, there are unused files for Rambi the Rhino as a party member, including a model; menu icons; and skills. He would have taken up two spaces on the board and been able to charge through any destructible terrain that enemies are using as cover and destroy it instantly. In the final DLC, Rambi would not appear physically in any form, but would have a gun made in his image. Rambi's model looks closer to his appearance in Rare's Donkey Kong games than his appearance in the Paon and Retro Studios Donkey Kong games, a design change that would also be carried over to Super Nintendo World's iteration of the character after Donkey Kong Adventure's release.
