In the "A Wonderful Spring of Mickey Mouse" animated special on Disney+, a Keyblade can be found in the box Minnie is holding at the 17:43 mark. The Keyblade featured is actually the Kingdom Key D, the Key that King Mickey wields at the beginning of the Kingdom Hearts series. This is one of the incredibly rare instances of Kingdom Hearts being referenced in non-KH related Disney media.

Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land
In 11/2002 interview with the game's designer Teruhiko Suzuki & general director Masahiro Sakurai published in Nintendo Dream, Suzuki stated that his team began the game's development last summer, by making prototypes to decide if Kirby's sprite should look bigger or smaller than how he appears in Kirby's Adventure. Sakurai expressed uncertainty about the graphics, including the backgrounds. He wanted to improve them so "today's gamers wouldn't find them embarrassing", and the developers ended up redesigning the backgrounds from the ground up in CG. On the other hand, he felt confident that Kirby's new sprite looked "just as good as something you'd see in a modern game."

Around the time of the game's release, a picture of a mouse was found in the game's files, but its in-game location remained uncertain until 2022, when it was discovered that the mouse picture could be found hiding in plain sight in-between a pair of garbage bags near the start of the game.

In the original release of Chapter 2, Spoiler:the "WRECK", "PAUSE", and "SPEW" VCR icons that appear during Spamton NEO's ultimate attack only showed up during the hidden Weird Route, and thus were absent from his fight during the normal route. While this difference was initially interpreted by fans as an intentional artistic decision, in actuality it was the result of an oversight: Spoiler:the icons were coded to appear at certain coordinates relative to the room where Spamton NEO is encountered. Because the fight on the normal route moved Spamton NEO and the player far out of range, the icons were consequently left offscreen.

This error was eventually fixed in the v1.08 patch, with Spoiler:the icons appearing in the proper location on both routes instead of just one. The patch additionally adds a new smoke effect after Spoiler:Spamton NEO's ultimate attack ends on both routes.

Enabling No-clipping mode in Chicken Con Carnage and heading back to the starting point of the map will reveal an unused spawn point for the L.O.A.D. STARR. Presumably, the level was intended to have two different zones.

The player can drive on the overworld walls by driving up one of the outer ramps of the Thug Tug as fast as possible. Although the game will function normally when doing so, driving off it and into the void will crash the game. It's possible that this was an oversight by the developers.

Pokémon Heart Gold & Soul Silver
If playing on a counterfeit cartridge, attempting to play Voltorb Flip in either the Goldenrod Game Corner or Celadon Game Corner will crash the game. It's unclear if this is an Anti-Piracy measure, or if it's a mistake in the ROM of Heart Gold and Soul Silver.

Pokémon Platinum
In Platinum and HeartGold & SoulSilver, Bidoof's gender difference has more to it than in any other game. In Diamond & Pearl and every future game after HG/SS, Bidoof's gender difference is that the male has an additional 2 curls on the tail. However in these 3 games, Bidoof's patch of white around the face has a more pronounced bump in between the eyes on the male, with a more flattened bump on the female. Whether this is intentional or not is unknown, but due to the fact it was fixed later in Generation V, it's safe to assume this was a mistake.

Series: Pokémon
Daniel Espinosa, the director of the Superhero film Morbius, said he was unexpectedly inspired by the Pokémon franchise for the depiction and look of the title character's superpowers.

"I have a daughter who is six years old, and she was really getting into Pokémon, [...] And you know, I’ve watched Pokémon over the years. But I really adore how they use light and colors to express those powers. [...] When you watch Morbius he always has this trail of purple in the comic books and that normally is just lines that are made with a pencil, [...] But I thought maybe if we can take that kind of Pokémon-esque idea and translate that over to the psychedelic experience, I could create a new version of how to express powers."

Towards the end of the opening sequence, it displays the 3 Johto starters moving across the screen. Chikorita and Totodile use their in-game sprites. However, Cyndaquil uses a different sprite than what is actually in the game, and this sprite isn't used as Cyndaquil's sprite in any previous or future game, suggesting it may be a beta sprite.

Within the data for every version of the game is a semi-functionable no-clipping mode that allows the player to freely explore maps without being stunned by the sunlight. The mode can be enabled by changing the value from "weatherphase1" to "weatherphase0". No-clipping mode doesn't work on Roadside Destruction, the tutorial portion of Chicken Con Carnage, and Showdown with Omegaton. Additionally, the player won't be able to destroy objects that are within the sunlight.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons
Attachment
While New Horizons stands out from earlier games through the rebranding of male/female gender options as "styles," presumably to make the game more accessible for nonbinary audiences, the game still assigns hidden values to them that correspond to a gender binary. Specifically, picking the feminine style results in the player character bearing a dark stripe across their chest, apparently representing a bra. However, this cannot be seen in normal gameplay, as players of both styles wear a plain white tank top if they aren't wearing a shirt or a dress. At the time of the game's initial release, a glitch was present that allowed one to see the bra texture, but it's currently unknown if this can be replicated in later revisions of the game.

Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island
In a 1995 interview with Shigeru Miyamoto published in the September issue of Haou magazine, he was asked about how long it took to develop the game? He responded:

"The staff members who have been working on it the longest started around the time Super Mario World was released, so about 5 years. The first two years were mainly spent experimenting with different ideas. We had one idea where Yoshi would move around freely, and he’d support Baby Mario and lead him through the stage. Almost all of those early ideas came to naught, but the one that really stuck and bore fruit for us was the idea of a game where even though you hit enemies, you don’t die."
