DuckTales: Remastered
Attachment
Within the game's files are a number of unused images referring to Shantae, another character created by WayForward. It's possible that Shantae would have appeared as a playable character at one point during development, but was later cut. This is speculation, but it is evident that Shantae was at least used as a placeholder during development.

An unused speech bubble appears in the data for the "Ragged One" enemy which translates to "I'll steal your money!". This never appears in the game, and remains untranslated in NTSC and PAL releases.

F-Zero AX
A graphic entitled "Rainbow Road" can be found in game, and seems to be the original name of the course "Phantom Road". "Rainbow Road" was a course in the previous F-Zero game, F-Zero X, which itself was a copy of Mario Kart 64's Rainbow Road.

Sonic the Hedgehog
In early screenshots of the Genesis game, a UFO could be spotted, but was not present in the final game. Yet when Sonic the Hedgehog was released in 2005 for mobile phones, the UFO sprite was found hidden away in the files, but still unused.

Final Fight
Attachment
Guy's name was originally spelled "Gay" in early development versions. As director Akira Nishitani put it, the development team wasn't "really aware of English spelling and pronunciation conventions." An unused graphic with the names "Gay, Haggar and Cody" can still be found in the game's code.

Adventure Time: Hey Ice King! Why'd You Steal Our Garbage?!
Attachment
The game's files include an unused Fionna Button which is stored with the rest of the menu buttons. It's possible that it was intended for the game to allow the player to use her as a character. The game also includes an unused Boss Rush Mode.

Super Mario World
Attachment
The Japanese box art of Super Mario World uses the subtitle, "Super Mario Bros. 4". Even though the subtitle isn't used on the Japanese title screen (or anywhere else) there is a graphic for the subtitle in the game's ROM.

Diablo
The Butcher originally had a pre-rendered cinematic that would play when first encountered. It is left on the disk, but goes entirely unused.

Super Smash Bros. Brawl
Attachment
Characters were originally going to visually show battle damage. You can see some of the injured player textures in the game's files.

According to Masahiro Sakurai this would have tied into a mechanic where a characters armor and other equipment would be damaged during the fight, putting them at a disadvantage.
The system was never implemented due to time constraints.

Suikoden II
If Jowy is hacked into the party during the game, neither the "King" version, or "Best Friend" version will appear in the HQ anywhere. They can both be removed and added to the party with unique (and different) dialogue, despite these never normally being accessible through traditional means. "Best Friend" Jowy can also be awarded the statue that appears at the top of the castle for obtaining the most kills, even though he is never a part of the party's team after the events that lead to the castle being accessible.

Deus Ex
Deus Ex was released on June 26 2000 and is set in the year 2052. It has sections of the game where New York's skyline is visible, and the Two Towers of the World Trace Center are missing.

The Twin Towers exist in the game's data files, but were simply left out by mistake..

During development, the game's developers justified the lack of the towers by stating terrorists had destroyed the World Trade Center earlier in the game's storyline. This was over a year prior to the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
