Collection: Pajama Sam
A pilot was made for a Pajama Sam television series that was pitched to PBS Kids, where Sam was aged up but inexplicably retained his onesie pajamas, and had a generic school bully as a nemesis. It supposedly had a high budget, and Humongous animator John Michaud, who revealed its existence, claims that it was fortunate it wasn't picked up.
Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl
In an interview with competitive Super Smash Bros. player Hungrybox, the developers of Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl claimed that the game would feature cross-play in a future update. Cross-play was eventually finished for the game, but was not able to be released due to Nintendo's strict guidelines on cross-play. On March 3, 2023, the game was released on the Epic Games Store, and cross-play between PC and Switch was accidentally added without announcement, but was removed shortly after, though cross-play between Epic Games and Steam players would continue to exist in the game.

Cross-play would eventually be included in the base game of Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl 2 for all consoles and generations.
El Tigre: The Adventures of Manny Rivera
El Tigre: The Adventures of Manny Rivera was intended to be developed over a span of 12 months. However, due to the cartoon being abruptly cancelled the game was developed over 2 months instead, with a greatly reduced budget, and a planned Wii version being cancelled.
Drill Dozer
An internal "last updated" date in the files of Drill Dozer shows that the European localizations of the game were finished in 2006, 10 years before their first release on the Wii U Virtual Console.
Kingdom Hearts III
Attachment Grand Chef, the Ratatouille keyblade in Kingdom Hearts III, has two bottles of champagne attached to its handles - the artwork on these bottles originates from a poster briefly seen in the movie, but is more commonly associated with a controversial cancelled Ratatouille-branded wine that was intended to be sold in Costco in 2007, but pulled before it could hit shelves due to concerns relating to underaged drinking. While the iteration in the movie shows red wine, the iteration on the wine bottle shows an olive tone of wine - the Grand Chef keyblade features both colors for the wine.
Also Appears On: Ratatouille (Franchise)
Tails and the Music Maker
Attachment There exists an unused version of Tails & the Music Maker's cover art where Tails plays a piano instead of standing on a giant piano.
Dark Deception: Monsters & Mortals
On September 18, 2023, it was revealed on the Dark Deception: Monsters & Mortals Twitter account that a pitch had been made for a DLC pack based on Catherine: Full Body by Atlus, but that said plans never materialized. A mockup trailer was also released, suggesting that said pack would have featured Vincent Brooks as a playable character and would have released in 2021, had it been accepted.
Also Appears On: Catherine: Full Body (Game)
Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl
Attachment Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl was originally intended to feature alternate palette swaps for every character on the roster, but this was rejected by Nickelodeon, who only wanted costumes that reference the shows directly. The only known planned recolors are for SpongeBob that were based on other characters from the show: Squidward blue, Patrick pink, and Mr. Krabs red.
Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl
Attachment Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl was intended to launch with a deluxe edition that would contain extra alternate costumes, much like the deluxe edition made for Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl 2 - this never came to be due to the alternate costumes not being finished in time for launch, with the game eventually receiving a free update to add one costume per character.

Franchise: Donkey Kong
Attachment Dutch electronics company Philips planned to release a Donkey Kong game for the CD-i as part of the deal with Nintendo that led to the release of Hotel Mario, Link: The Faces of Evil, Zelda: The Wand of Gamelon, and Zelda's Adventure. The Donkey Kong game's existence was alluded to in two "Gaming Gossip" articles by Electronic Gaming Monthly as well as a trade ad which depicted Donkey Kong exiting a limousine alongside Mario, Link, and Zelda. However, more concrete evidence for the game's existence didn't emerge until former Riedel Software Productions employee Adrian Jackson-Jones included a post on his LinkedIn page stating that he programmed the engine for it (the LinkedIn post incorrectly cites Australian visual effects studio Rising Sun Pictures due to them sharing initials). This information was then brought to public attention in 2022 by the LostMediaWiki, a website which documents searches for lost or otherwise publicly unavailable works.

An investigation by Time Extension led to writer John Szczepaniak getting in contact with both Jackson-Jones and Riedel Software Productions owner Michael J. Riedel. Both parties have little memory of the Donkey Kong game due to the amount of time that passed and the company's habit of erasing their data for cancelled projects. Additionally, Jackson-Jones revealed that due to a memory disorder, he recalls little about the game other than his direct experiences programming it. Despite this, Jackson-Jones was able to confirm his involvement with the Donkey Kong game, stating that one of the biggest difficulties during development was the CD-i's memory limitations, which were circumvented by only loading in assets that would be visible on-screen, using the player's movement to determine what to put into memory.
Reckless Rufus
Reckless Rufus was originally titled Awesome Dude.
amiibo Tap: Nintendo's Greatest Bits
amiibo Tap: Nintendo's Greatest Bits contains two unused ROMs in its code: Mario Bros. for NES and Super Mario All-Stars for SNES. Notably, Super Mario All-Stars never had a Wii U Virtual Console release. (though it was playable on the console through the Wii disc, Super Mario All-Stars Limited Edition)
Roy E. Disney, the nephew of Walt Disney, was not informed that The Walt Disney Company's licensing department had granted Sega the rights to develop a Fantasia video game until after its release. He had previously promised Walt before his death that merchandising deals would not be made for Fantasia, resulting in the game's withdrawal from sale after roughly 100 days.

Following the release of the BBC Micro, independent branches of rival free-to-air channel ITV initiated plans to brand a microcomputer by Transam Computers with the ITV name, selling at the same price as the BBC Micro. This was ultimately vetoed by the Independent Television Companies Association due to ITV being prohibited from sponsoring products at the time, alongside potential conflicts of interest with ITV's own advertisers, which included other microcomputer manufacturers.

Wreck-It Ralph
In late 2018, a trailer for the film's sequel "Ralph Breaks the Internet" premiered on TV as part of Disney Channel's "Movie Surfers" series. The first half of the trailer used almost 40 seconds of cutscenes from the 2012 Wii game based on the first movie, and used unreleased higher quality renders of these cutscenes rather than the compressed footage released in the game. This trailer also features a noticeably bad, ad-libbed narration from an unknown actor portraying Ralph; this actor does not sound like the original film's actor John C. Reilly, nor the soundalike actor used in the Wii game and commercials Brian T. Delaney. Considering the overall confusing cheapness of the trailer, it's not known why the show's producers chose to use unreleased HD renders of these cutscenes instead of footage from the first film which they had to have had access to and would have matched the visual quality of the film's sequel better.
Bubsy 2
The working titles for Bubsy 2 were "Bubsy 2: Still No Pants!" and "Bubsy 2: Lost in the Amazatorium".
