Final Fantasy VI
Attachment
There are multiple examples of art assets being censored in the North American release.
Esper Siren, Esper Starlet, Alluring Rider, Madam, The Goddess and Chadarnook's Godess part were all altered to be more acceptable to international audiences, mostly covering up more skin, or in Madam's case, removing smoking references.
Additionally, the Cafe sign originally read "Pub".
Many of these changes were kept in place in the Game Boy Advance port of the game.

Final Fantasy
Attachment
In the English version of the game, just outside the city of Elfheim/Elfland are three tombstones, one which reads:
"Here lies Erdrick
837-866
R.I.P."

Erdrick is referenced a lot during the game Dragon Quest, and is also the hero in Dragon Quest 3.

In the original Japanese version of the game, the tombstone is actually a reference to Link from the Legend of Zelda series. In later remakes of the game, the reference has been changed back to Link.

Wario Land II
Attachment
A penguin enemy in the English version throws bowling balls at Wario. If they hit, he becomes dizzy, burps, and needs to splash himself off with water to go back to normal. In the Japanese version, the penguin actually throws pints of beer. This explains the out of place animations and why Wario needs water. The beer was censored for obvious reasons.

Sonic Adventure 2
Attachment
In the Dreamcast version of the game, boxes in the Crazy Gadget area have green X's on them. These were changed to red X's for the Gamecube version of the game. It's believed that the change was made because the logo of Microsoft's Xbox is a green X.

Earthbound
Attachment
There is a section where Ness will enter his own subconscious. In this segment, the North American version of the game has Ness wearing his Pajamas, but in the Japanese version, Ness is more or less naked, wearing nothing but his hat.

Console: PlayStation
Attachment
In the North American commercials for Playstation, Sony hid multiple subliminal messages. The more obvious was "U R NOT E" - you are not ready (red "E"). Some were cheat codes for games, and another was "E NOS LIVES" meaning "Ready ninth of September", revealing the PS1's release date.

Super Paper Mario
Attachment
There was one change to the game's script between the two English localizations. In North America, Dimentio insults Luigi by calling his mustache a "shag", but as this doubles as a vulgar slang term in British English (a reference to the act of sex), it was changed to "pushover" in the PAL region.

Maniac Mansion
In the NES version of the game, despite heavy censorship, the scene where the player can put a hamster into a microwave oven was left in the game. Nintendo discovered this just as the first run was being shipped to retail, and stipulated that no more copies could be manufactured until that scene was censored.

In later versions of the game, including the PAL version, attempting to put the hamster in the microwave will only cause the game to respond "HOW SICK!"

The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening
In the German version, the Cukeman enemies' many phrases were changed to considerably more suggestive or vulgar phrases courtesy of Claude Moyse.
"Nie Ohne Kondom!"
which translates to "Not without a condom!"
and also "Gib Mir Deinen Saft, Ich Geb'Dir Meinen"
which translates to "Give me your juice, I'll give you mine." and "Irgendwelche Sorgen, Nöte oder Probleme?" meaning "Do you have any sorrows or problems?"
They will also shout "!STOP THE WAR! GIVE PEACE A CHANCE!!"

The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past
Attachment
There is a secret room, called the Chris Houlihan room, that is not accessible via normal means. It contains a telepathy tile and 225 Rupees and is used as an error handler if you fall into a hole but the game can't find a proper destination.

This room appeared as a result of Chris Houlihan winning a Nintendo Power contest and being promised an appearance in a Zelda game. Many of the glitches used to access the room were removed in the GBA port though, along with any mention of Chris.

Final Fantasy X
Attachment
At the end of the game Yuna will proclaim to Tidus that she loves him. However in the Japanese version Yuna will simply thank him. This change was to make up for cultural differences.

Sabrina The Animated Series: Zapped
There are a few unused tracks in the game that are accessible from a hidden Music Menu. "newdream4" is different depending on if you're playing the US or EU version of the game. In the EU version, it sounds like an unfinished remix of worlds 2 and 4's music. The other, "sbr_mall_grager" is a very short tune that sounds very unfinished. It could possibly have been a piece of music associated with a boss.

No More Heroes: Heroes' Paradise
Attachment
A Nintendo 64 can be seen very easily on a shelf in Travis' apartment during a cutscene after assassinating Dr. Peace in the original Wii version. However, in this title, the N64 is changed to a SEGA Genesis with a 32X, and SEGA CD attachments. This is likely because Nintendo would not want their console to appear in a game on a competitors' platform.
