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)

There is a Debug Mode code accessed from the Sound Test in the options menu that is inputted by playing songs in the order 01, 09, 09, 02, 01, 01, 02, 04. This is a reference to the North American release date of the game, which was on 1992/11/24, or November 24th, 1992.

Console: GameCube
The GameCube's BIOS menu has slow, seemingly random ambient background music.

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.

The Legend of Zelda: Four Swords Adventures
Attachment
Navi Trackers (originally planned as a stand alone game titled Tetra's Trackers) is only on the Japanese and Korean versions of The Legend of Zelda: Four Swords Adventures. In this game, multiple players, using a combination of the television screen and Game Boy Advances, search for members of Tetra's pirate gang to gain stamps from them, as many as possible within a given time limit. Unlike most other entries in the series, players can select their gender as well their name; however, they play as one of the Links regardless of this choice. Tetra and her pirate crew have full voiceovers in place of text-only dialogue, with Tetra also synthesizing the two-character name that each player inputs at the beginning of the session, possibly why this game was not localized for the English release.
