I Have No Mouth, and I Must Scream
In the French and German releases of the game, the character of Nimdok and his chapter as a whole was removed. The chapter was remove because it was based around a Nazi camp. The removal of the Nimdok chapter made the "best" ending unachievable.

Final Fantasy VI
There are multiple examples of art assets being censored in the North American release.
Esper Siren, Esper Starlet, Alluring Rider, Madam, The Goddess and Chadarnook's Godess part were all altered to be more acceptable to international audiences, mostly covering up more skin, or in Madam's case, removing smoking references.
Additionally, the Cafe sign originally read "Pub".
Many of these changes were kept in place in the Game Boy Advance port of the game.

Wario Land II
A penguin enemy in the English version throws bowling balls at Wario. If they hit, he becomes dizzy, burps, and needs to splash himself off with water to go back to normal. In the Japanese version, the penguin actually throws pints of beer. This explains the out of place animations and why Wario needs water. The beer was censored for obvious reasons.

Maniac Mansion
In the NES version of the game, despite heavy censorship, the scene where the player can put a hamster into a microwave oven was left in the game. Nintendo discovered this just as the first run was being shipped to retail, and stipulated that no more copies could be manufactured until that scene was censored.

In later versions of the game, including the PAL version, attempting to put the hamster in the microwave will only cause the game to respond "HOW SICK!"

Spider-Man 2: Enter Electro
When you put an incorrect phrase into the cheat menu it will simply reset. However, when you input a foul word as a cheat, Spider-Man will appear and change it into something nice like flower, puppy, or spice.

Spider-Man (2002)
If you put in the cheat code "girlnextdoor" you can play the game as Mary Jane Watson. At the end of the game, where Spider-Man and Mary Jane usually kiss, Mary Jane will kiss herself. This code was removed from later versions of the game, presumably because of the lesbian kiss in an E-rated game.
