There's a hidden credit line in the SNES game's ROM which reads:
(C) 1992 Basement Boys Software

Basement Boys Software were a group famous for making hacking tools on the Commodore 64 in the late 80s, who had some members go on to Chip Level Designs, a company that used to provide sound programming for a number of SNES titles. The same credit appears in Bubsy.

Astal's spine did not feature the game's name, which may have lead to its poor sales in the US. Retailers would have had to display the case forward facing, rather than to its side as standard.

Shadow of the Colossus
Agro will occasionally ignore commands, as Fumito Ueda (lead designer) believed that "a real horse ... doesn't always obey. It's not like a car or a motorcycle, it won't always turn when you say 'turn!'"

He also admitted that the team had to work out a good balance of how often Agro would ignore commands to allow for playability over realism.

Pokemon Red & Blue
There is evidence to suggest that Ditto is a failed clone of Mew. Both Pokemon are genderless, weigh the same, their base stats are exactly the same in every respect, they share almost identical colors, and they're the only two Pokemon who learn Transform naturally.

Ditto can also be found commonly in the same cave as Mewtwo, as well as the mansion on Cinnabar Island, where experiments on Mew were said to take place.

There are 3 unused rune Crystals in the game's code:
Shrike crystal: Permanently attached to Kasumi and cannot be removed or obtained otherwise.
Falcon crystal: Same as the Shrike crystal but attached to Valeria.
Flame crystal: Its description reads "Bell's rune". This rune cannot be attached to any characters, and Ronnie Bell already has her own unique rune, the "Hate Rune".

As weapon levels increase, they are also sometimes renamed. Many characters are recruited with weapons already upgraded beyond early level names for their weapons, but these names are still coded into the game.

Viewing these names, we see that Clive's weapons all have a wind theme (Wind, Storm, Tornado) and Warren's weapons are all references to the Norse God Odin, though badly mistranslated. (Slavenil, Gunnigle, Odin)

This background music, when sped up to sixteen times its normal speed, is actually the intro jingle for the Famicom Disk System, a Famicom add-on released by Nintendo in 1986.
