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.

Alien Soldier
Alien Soldier’s credits tell the player the total amount of damage they took throughout an entire playthrough. Originally, some kind of reward was going to be given for beating the game without taking any damage, but the development team ran out of time before this could be implemented.
Muppet RaceMania
Attachment Muppet RaceMania has unused credits dialogue from Statler and Waldorf, commenting on different names and job titles. This includes Steve and Jamie Riding, two Traveller's Tales employees who were not credited in the final game.
Attachment On March 17, 2019, in response to a post on the Sonic the Hedgehog Twitter account celebrating St. Patrick's Day, YouTuber Jacksepticeye jokingly asked if he could voice "Irish the Hedgehog", to which the Sonic the Hedgehog Twitter account responded:


(We just need to create him first.)"

A year later, they made good on this promise, releasing a video titled "Irish the Hedgehog" on the official Sonic the Hedgehog Youtube channel. According to Sega, the character was designed by artist Mark Hughes, and the video included a "folksy" remix of the song "Escape from the City" from Sonic Adventure 2 made by Hyper Potions and Jun Senoue.

A few years afterwards, Jacksepticeye would return to the Sonic franchise to voice another character: the appropriately-named Jack from the "Sonic Prime" episode "It Takes One to No Place".

In February 1999, several members of Rare (specifically those who were part of the GoldenEye 007 and Perfect Dark development team) such as David Doak, Steve Ellis, Karl Hilton and Graeme Norgate, left the company to form Free Radical Design in Nottingham, England. TimeSplitters was the first project for the team, and its development was carried out by eighteen people, including Norgate as the composer. Development lasted sixteen months with a budget of £500,000 (around $630,050 USD).

Spot Goes to Hollywood
The credits for Spot Goes to Hollywood call the game Cool Spot 3, but it is unknown what game is supposed to be Cool Spot 2. It could either be counting Spot: The Cool Adventure (which was released in Europe as McDonaldland, despite the credits for Hollywood not changing in that region) as Cool Spot 2, or it could be counting the original Cool Spot as Cool Spot 2 while treating the Reversi game Spot: The Video Game as Cool Spot 1.

Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl 2
Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl 2 was the first Nickelodeon product where Korra from The Legend of Korra isn't voiced as an adult by Janet Varney, instead being voiced by Jacqueline Grace Lopez, while Nickelodeon Kart Racers 3: Slime Speedway was the last time Varney portrayed the character. The reason for this is that in 2022, a year before All-Star Brawl 2 was released and the same year as Kart Racers 3, Varney announced that she was stepping down from the role because she wanted Korra to be voiced by a person of color, much as Korra herself is, following the announcement of a new Avatar: The Last Airbender movie starring Korra to be released in 2025.

Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora
Paul Frommer, the developer of the Na'vi language, contributed to Frontiers of Pandora to ensure that the language remained accurate. He also provided names for the new flora and fauna introduced in the game.
Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth
The character Andre Richardson from Yakuza 3 is notorious for speaking in poor English despite him being American, with one line especially where he says:

"If you're looking for Daigo, Mine's taken him up to the roof."

In saying the line, "roof" is pronounced more as "ruff". This meme was referenced with his return in Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth, where in the English dub, after Ichiban spends a night at the bar he runs, he says the line:

"If you ever need a roof over your head-"

And during this line he says the word roof in a similar matter.

Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night
Attachment As a reward for contributing a $100+ donation to the game's Kickstarter campaign, backers could choose to join a clan of their choice to appear under in the game's credits. Six "Sword or Whip" Clans (connected to a vote on if Miriam's personal weapon should be a sword or a whip) were dedicated to voting on which Sword or Whip weapon would become the most powerful weapon in the game (the winner being Clan Katana with the Grand Izayoi sword), while the remaining eighteen clans were Community or YouTube Partner Clans, who would receive a code for a clan-specific item.

The Community Clans were represented by two Castlevania fan communities: the Dungeon clan (The Castlevania Dungeon forums), and the Operation Akumajo clan (a Castlevania Facebook group spun off from The Castlevania Dungeon dedicated to promoting the series following its 25th anniversary in 2011). The YouTubers and other companies who participated in the last clan group were associated with Fangamer, a video game merchandising company who managed the Kickstarter campaign for Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night. To unlock one of the Community/YouTube Partner Clan items, you must enter its respective code as the name for your save file, and as such only one clan item can be unlocked per save file. The participating clans and their codes include:

Community Clans:
•The Castlevania Dungeon: DUNGEONITE - unlocks the Dungeonite sword

YouTube Partner Clans:

However, Steve Vining does not reprise his role as the singing voice of Simon, with his role instead given to Ross.

Like a Dragon: Ishin!
When actor Rahul Kohli's likeness was used as a trooper card in the 2023 remake of Like a Dragon: Ishin!, he expressed a feeling that there were notable differences in corresponding with Western and Eastern game studios. In an interview with Digital Trends, he was quoted as saying:

"I definitely saw a difference between working with Western and Eastern studios. Our correspondence with Sega and RGG was so involved and sweet. They really cared, and it felt so much more collaborative. Nothing specific, but when I've been involved in other things, it's like, 'Just do the voice, mate," and then you never hear about it again. I never expected to have the back and forth of RGG constantly checking in to ask, "Is Rahul happy with this? Does he like the artwork?" I never said no to any of it, but I'm sure if I had any type of gripe, they would have obliged, so I felt very welcome and involved."
