The Legend of Dragoon
During development, Shirley was going to be an optional boss along with the other Dragoons in Vellweb. However, due to the White-Silver Dragoon's ability to heal 100% of its health while also having an unlimited MP supply, the boss was cut from the title as it was considered an unbeatable fight. The data for this battle can still be found on the game's disc.

Team Fortress 2
Within the game's files are unused models for a red version of the robots seen in Mann vs. Machine (except for the tank and sentry buster), which can mostly only be seen by modifying the game's files. However, the red model for the robot Spy is used when a spy disguises itself. This could imply that players were originally going to be given the choice as to which team they would play as in Mann vs. Machines matches.

WWF Smackdown! Just Bring It
In the "Ultimate Trailer" of the game, "DDP" and "Hurricane Helms" are shown as wrestlers in the game, but they do not appear in the final release. It's unknown why they aren't included in the final release of the game, but it's possible that they had been created in the Create-A-Wrestler mode.

BlazBlue: Continuum Shift
An unused placeholder character can be found in the coding of the arcade version of Continuum Shift 1. The character is named "Tubaki Yayoi" ("Tubaki" being a misromanization of "Tsubaki" as in "Tsubaki Yayoi", an actual character), her character select nametag is still written in the Calamity Trigger font and her main portrait is that of Nu's CT artwork with the head of Noel Vermillion's story portrait pasted on it.

In game her sprite is a static image of Nu/Lambda with "MU" written on it, meaning that Tubaki is aplaceholder for the character Mu-12, an alternate version of Noel.

Mario Party 7
Using Action Replay codes, it is possible to play as the Red and Green Koopa Kids. Their character models and behaviors are mostly broken as they are missing several animations, all voice clips (as they use Mario and Luigi's) and party board HUB sprites. There is a value for the Blue Koopa Kid as well, however using the code will make the game crash.

Mario Kart Wii
Petey Piranha, Paratroopa, and a Hammer Brother were all going to be playable in the game, as well as a third costume for Miis. The Chain Chomp item was going to return, but was replaced by the Bullet Bill in the final game. Several graphics supporting this appear within the game's data.

Castlevania: Symphony of the Night
There are two familiars that didn't make the cut during the transition to the Western market. These are the Half-Fairy and the Nose Demon. They are almost exact copies of the normal Fairy and Demon, but with different graphics. They are still programmed into the Western version, but their familiar cards are no longer available, and thus have to be activated using GameShark codes.

An unused enemy named "Mr. Friendly" can be found in the Half-Life's data. According to the book "Half-Life 2: Raising the Bar" Mr. Friendly's attacks included knocking Gordon's weapons out of his hand, knocking off Gordon's glasses (making the screen go blurry) and even raping the player. It was created by Ted Backman, and the design was because Ted "decided to go with something that elicits a homophobic response". The in-game texture is also signed by Ted.
