Unused files in the game suggest Willie Wumpa Cheeks from Crash Tag Team Racing, Ripto from the Spyro series and the Sorceress from Spyro: Year of the Dragon were once planned to be added to the game as playable characters.

LittleBigPlanet
The game was intended to have a feature where players could import photos from the PlayStation 3's hard drive and use them as Stickers in-game. It was intended to be added in an update, possibly version 1.02, but was never released due to fears of players importing explicit content using it. The Image Import Tool was fully completed and functional, and can be hacked back into the player's Popit.

Early graphics for the song "TRANCE DE JANEIRO (SAMBA DE JANEIRO 2002 Epic Vocal Remix)" by BELLINI exist within the game's data. Interestingly, these early graphics lack the remix subtitle and merely referred to the song as "TRANCE DE JANEIRO".

Still logos for n-Space, THQ and Nickelodeon exist within the game's data, all of which differ from the animated ones used in-game. Interestingly, the unused Nickelodeon logo would be reused in other Rugrats games.

Dance Dance Revolution 3rd Mix
Banners and backgrounds for three songs, "FOLLOW THE SUN (90 IN THE SHADE MIX), "IT ONLY TAKES A MINUTE (Extended Remix)", and "XANADU" appear in the PlayStation version's data, despite not appearing on a home console release until Dance Dance Revolution 4th Mix.

In an update for the game released in November, 2020, two in-game podcasts featuring journalist Helen Lewis were replaced by Ubisoft after receiving complaints from concerned gamers. This was due to Lewis being known in the public for having transphobic views and writing a number of articles criticizing legislation which were in support of making gender transitioning easier.

Ubisoft told in a statement that the speaker profiles for the scripted in-game podcasts were chosen by an external producer that worked with the development team. They promised that in future they'd perform background checks on any future partners.

The Sombrero Guy from Autumn Mountain may have been planned to be a temporary party member just like Spike and Bone Goomba, but was left out. Altering the code through save file hacking makes the character fully functional and adds an otherwise unused graphic to the pause menu.

Crash Bandicoot: The Wrath of Cortex
There are three unused levels still present within the game; an Airship Level, an unfinished version of Fahrenheit Frenzy, and a Warp Room that was presented at E3 2001. Out of the three, the Airship level is the most finished.

The E3 Warp Room is an area containing 5 warp pads, all of which have no collision and will not warp the player anywhere. Interestingly, each warp pad has a hologram of their respective levels overlaid on the pads. This feature isn’t used anywhere in the final game.

The Airship level and the E3 Warp Room can be accessed through Action Replay codes on the North American GameCube versions.

In the PC version, there are several unused animations stored in the game’s files. These include animations carried over from Generations for Classic Sonic, a goal post animation from Generations, a “seek” motion for The Egg Pawns, a damage animation for Silver, early boss fight animations for Metal Sonic, and hand motions for The Golems from Capital City.

Tekken 3
Jun was planned to be added into the arcade version of the game, but was later cut some time during development. Her data still exists within the game’s code and can be accessed using MAME cheat files. When added back in, she uses Nina’s character model and Jin’s moveset. Her voice and portrait does exist, but there are assets taken from Tekken 2.

Sonic CD
Attachment
Originally, the Special Stages were going to have Sonic navigate a rotating maze, building upon the framework of Sonic 1's Special Stage. Although similar, Sonic CD's Special Stage was planned to have two rotating layers that the player switched between.

According to BEEP and Marukatsu MegaDrive magazine interviews, with game's planner Hiroaki Chino, the developers thought the Special Stage was very slow, so they decided to redo it to make better use of the Sega CD hardware.

Super Mario Sunshine
Attachment
At one point in development, Pinna Park was meant to function as another hub area. This is evidenced by the fact there are four unused "gate" objects found in the stage's files. These include a ring of manta rays, a shell containing a portal to Noki Bay, and a portal that goes to Pianta Village. The stage also has a MarioPositionObj, which controls where Mario ends up after leaving a course. The only other stage in the game that has gates and MarioPosition objects is Delfino Plaza.

Team Fortress 2
Attachment
In March of 2018, a passive effect called "Sketchek’s Bequest" was added to the Pyro's weapon the Axtinguisher which granted the player a speed boost after killing a burning opponent. This was named in honor of the YouTuber known as Sketchek, a prominent Pyro player in the community, who in 2015 claimed in a video to have a "terminal illness" that was getting worse and had later presumably died. However in 2019, Sketchek returned and stated that he lied about dying because he wanted to retire from the game as it had "ruined his life" and he wanted to "go out with a bang." The effect was subsequently removed in an update.

Castlevania: Symphony of the Night
The development team's first idea for the game was to use the story and setting of Vampire Killer, and make the final Belmont vampire hunter the enemy. Another idea was to make Quincy Morris the person who defeated Dracula. They were also ordered by the "section chief" to make the “Ultimate Dracula” game. No one really knew what “ultimate” meant, but all the developers had talked it over, and the result was Symphony of the Night.

There exists an icon for the Dark Brotherhood rank of "Executioner", but the game forgoes it, promoting the player from "Assassin" to "Silencer".
