Final Fantasy IV
In the final battle against Zeromus, Edge can steal an item known as Dark Matter in the Japanese version of Final Fantasy 4. This item, long thought to reduce the damage of Zeromus's Big Bang attack, is actually a joke item.

There are two versions of the 6th stage. In the Japanese and PAL versions of the game, the stage takes place in hell. In the American version, the stage instead takes place on a volcanic island. Both stages have different graphics for Lammy, a different intro cutscene, and a slight change in lyrics in the first stage to remove any references to hell or the devil.

Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back
According to Jason Rubin, in the Japanese version of the game, a death animation of Crash being crushed and left with his head and feet was replaced. This was because the animation reminded Sony Japans of a serial killer on the loose in Japan who decapitated the victims and left their head with their shoes.

...we would always release a Japanese specific build. Whether it was giving Aku Aku pop up text instructions, or replace a Crash smashing "death" that reminded them of the severed head and shoes left by a serial killer that was loose in Japan during Crash 2's release, we focused on Japan and fought hard for acceptance and success.
