Maestro was conceived as a tie-in to Tubular Bells 2003, a re-recording of English progressive rock musician Mike Oldfield's 1973 debut album, Tubular Bells, for its thirtieth anniversary. The game was originally titled The Tube World because of this, and snippets of the re-recorded album are featured as part of the soundtrack.

The first Yakuza game features a recording of the Christian hymn "Amazing Grace", and Yakuza 2 features the Christmas carol "Silent Night, Holy Night". Each song is played during their respective game's end credits. Both games were set around December which is probably why the songs were chosen.

Attachment High Boo's Thought Peek quote, "*sigh* ♪Stomp, stomp, clap. Stomp, stomp, clap.♪", references the 1977 song "We Will Rock You" by English glam rock band Queen. The song famously features a percussion section consisting of two stomped eighth notes followed by a clapped quarter note. Uniquely, this reference is a new addition to the remake; in the original SNES version, High Boo (known there as Li'l Boo) says "Beep pa doodle-dee!♪"

Yakuza 3
Yakuza 3 features an unused remix of a song called “Bruise” in the game files, originally intended to be used in tag battles in the Coliseum. This song would later be used in-game in Like a Dragon Gaiden: The Man Who Erased His Name in 2023.
Attachment The first two versions of Pengo use "Popcorn" by Gershon Kingsley as the background music, in the third and fourth, they were swapped for an original tune.
Yakuza 3
Yakuza 2 features a side story called “The Enka Life” where an NPC sings a song titled "The Moonlight Snows of Kamurocho". In Yakuza 3, this song would go on to be one of the songs Kiryu can sing in the karaoke minigame under the name “Kamurocho Lullaby” and would continue to be used in select future entries.

Super Mario Bros. 35
While Super Mario Bros. 35 removed the intro portions of music from the underground and underwater levels in the original Super Mario Bros., they (along with sped-up versions that play when there's not much time left) can still be found in the game's data.
Super Mario World: Super Mario Advance 2
The Western version of the music that plays in the cutscene after clearing all 96 exits has a portion that contains the level clear theme from the original Super Mario Bros..
Disney's Donald Duck: Goin' Quackers
The Nintendo 64 version of Donald Duck: Goin' Quackers uses a midi version of the original Windows/Dreamcast soundtrack. However, these MIDI downgrades have many errors, such as missing or overly quiet instruments, instrument samples that are in the wrong key for the sequences, and background instruments being played too loud.
Franchise: Metal Gear
On December 23 2022, Cam Clarke, the voice actor for Liquid Snake in the English language version of Metal Gear Solid, uploaded a video entitled “Cam Clarke & David Hayter "Liquid Grinch" Parody - Metal Gear Solid”. In the video, he and David Hayter, the English language voice of Solid Snake, sing a parody of the Christmas song “You’re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch” by Thurl Ravenscroft in the personas of their respective characters from the Metal Gear series.
Mario Forever
Attachment Mario Forever, between versions 3.5 and 4.4, used an audio track that was a "fart version" of the Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island castle theme as the Hardcore World 1-4 music. Prior to its addition, some versions of the game had an unused version of the fart castle theme with Luigi impressions by developer Michał Gdaniec non-melodically interspersed.
Star Fox Adventures
Attachment The music track that currently plays in Dragon Rock in Star Fox Adventures was originally intended for the Walled City in Dinosaur Planet.

Dragon Rock originally just featured eerie sounding ambience for background music in Dinosaur Planet. In Star Fox Adventures, Walled City now shares the same stage music with LightFoot Village.

PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale
Attachment When Hades appears in the Polygon Man boss fight, there is a rare chance that he will perform a dance akin to a cowboy swinging a lasso. This dance originated from the 1995 episode "Viva Lost Wages" of the TV series "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air", where Will and Carlton are forced to enter a talent contest to win money to return home from Las Vegas. During the talent contest, they performed a dance set to The Sugarhill Gang's cover of the Jerry Lordan-penned instrumental song "Apache", with added lyrics turning it into the song "Jump on It", and the dance in question was originally improvised by Will Smith and Alfonso Ribeiro prior to the episode's filming backstage. The cowboy portion of this dance would later be popularized around the time of PlayStation All-Star Battle Royale's release through an appearance in the music video to "Gangnam Style" by Psy. It is not known if there is any way to intentionally trigger this Easter egg.

Crash Twinsanity
Attachment Every single song in the Crash Twinsanity soundtrack is fully acapella, regardless of its genre or tone, with no instrumental backing, using human voices for every single instrument, including electric guitars.

The scat group behind Twinsanity's score, Spiralmouth, would return for Crash Tag Team Racing, but the tracks in Tag Team Racing had proper instrumentals with acapella vocals.
