Street Fighter II
Chun-Li originally had a back flip attack, but it was cut due to being too strong and the team not having enough time to adjust it. However, sprites for the move still exist in the game's data, and it was later implemented in SFII: Champion edition.

American McGee's Alice
The symbols on Alice's dress have changed throughout promotional artwork and the several releases of the game.

In original promotional artwork, the symbols are the symbol of Neptune and the symbol of Jupiter. In game, the symbols are the symbol of Venus rotated 45 degrees to the left, and a sextile.

In the 2011 rerelease of the game, the symbols are the symbol of Eris, and the symbol of Jupiter. This makes the design fall in line with its appearance in the sequel, Alice: Madness Returns.

When American McGee was asked about the symbols he said "the difference in symbols might have to do with poor communication/planning and/or might have to do with the marketing department being overly sensitive about the symbols and their meanings. Too much time has passed for me to remember exactly what caused the differences."

Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U
The emulated NES demos featured in the "Masterpeice" collection seem to run NES games at a higher quality than the actual Virtual Console versions they are promoting. This is most evident in how smooth and clear these demos look against the comparatively blurry VC ports.

This is likely due to Nintendo's improved emulation abilities rather than them purposefully trying to mislead fans, as the NES Virtual console was released very early in the Wii U's lifespan and likely used a system similar to that of the Wii.

Mortal Kombat (2011)
Data for an unfinished version of Skarlet can be found within the game's data. This version uses Jade's stance and Mileena's profile picture as placeholders, along with an additional costume not seen in both the home console or PC versions' DLC. This costume would later be made available in the PS Vita releases of the game.

Mario Kart 8
In update 1.1 of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, one of the Inkling Girl's gestures was altered, as the original animation could have been interpreted as an offensive gesture in certain cultures.

At the end of the game's E3 2016 trailer, a Jiggy from Banjo-Kazooie can be seen in one of the character's drink glasses. This nod to some of the senior developers' previous series seems to be completely removed from the final game however, as Playtonic likely do not have the rights to use it.

The boxart for the North American Wii version of the game includes a spelling mistake on the back of the box, with the word "perform" misspelled in the line "and preform new moves".

Mario Party 2
In the Japanese version, Professor Fungi is constantly seen smoking a pipe. It was removed in the international releases.
Mega Man 8
The SEGA Saturn version of the game has a different theme for Tengu Man than in the Playstation version of the game.
Mario Party 6
In the Japanese release, the vegetable pulled in the mini-game “Garden Grab” is a Turnip. This was changed to a carrot in the international release.
Mario Party 2
In the Japanese version, the guns in the Western Land ending cutscene are revolvers. They were changed to Yellow Cork Shooters in the international release.
Sonic Adventure
Sonic Adventure had a limited edition release available two months before the release of the SEGA Dreamcast in North America. SEGA signed a deal with the game rental company Hollywood Video that let people rent a SEGA Dreamcast two months before the release of the console with a selection of games, one of those being Sonic Adventure Limited Edition. Although those copies were never meant to make it into the hands of the public, the copies that did make it to the public usually are incomplete or have a Hollywood Video sticker on the top of the disc.
Dragon Ball: Advanced Adventure
The music for both the title screen and credits are different in the Japanese and international versions.

In the Japanese version, the title screen featured an instrumental arrangement of the first series opening song "Makafushigi Adventure". For the in-game credits, an instrumental arrangement of the first series ending theme "Romantikku ageru yo" is played.

In the international versions, both songs were replaced with entirely brand new tracks.

Final Fight
In the Super Famicom (Japanese) version of the game, there is a small, dark dot on the forehead of Belger's character portrait, most likely as a result of shading. In the international release, Nintendo removed this dot for fear it would be mistaken for a bindi and thus make players think that they were beating up a disabled Hindu. On other platforms, the character portraits are too small to display such a minute detail clearly.
