* The Japanese version of ''VideoGame/SandsOfDestruction'' opens with [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zm7CKpq88h0 "Crash"]] by Music/{{AAA}},[[note]]They also did the AnimeThemeSong "Zero" (which was unchanged, [[TheSongRemainsTheSame even in the English dub]]), and the two were released on the same album[[/note]] while the English game opens with [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zc7z88ABlzs "Time's Arm"]] performed by Music/CzechPhilharmonicCollegium. The words are not in English, however; they're in [[AltumVidetur Latin]], making it also a ForeignLanguageTheme.

* ''VideoGame/ThiefIITheMetalAge'' provides a peculiar example in its German (and only German) localization. The [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qVawf1l5zc0 credits video]] for the game and a few ambients in certain in-game locations [[https://youtu.be/M6sDJ5fDadI?t=61 use]] the song "Accingite Vos", by the German band Subway to Sally. Weirdly, all other versions of the game ''don't'' include it, to the point that even in the English language version, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p1bdfx4fP24 there is]] ''no background music in the credits video''. The lenghth of the credits video and how well it syncs with the song seems to indicate it was originally planned to be released as part of the non-German versions too (including the original English language one), but some last-minute copyright issue probably prevented that. Some surviving [[http://www.ttlg.com/forums/showthread.php?t=123254 online news releases]] from the time of the game's development indicate this might have been the case, as there was no mention of the band contributing music only to the German language version of the game.

** ''[[VideoGame/TalesOfDestiny Destiny]]'', ''[[VideoGame/TalesOfEternia Eternia]]'', ''[[VideoGame/TalesOfSymphonia Symphonia]]'' (and [[VideoGame/TalesOfSymphoniaDawnOfTheNewWorld sequel]]), ''[[VideoGame/TalesOfPhantasia Phantasia]]'' (GBA and iOS) and ''[[VideoGame/TalesOfLegendia Legendia]]'' all had its vocal theme songs replaced by original orchestral compositions. ''Symphonia'' (and sequel)'s and ''Legendia'''s compositions are special in that they were actually composed by series composer Motoi Sakuraba for the international release. The GBA version of ''Phantasia'' simply replaced the song with its overworld music, while the iOS version used an orchestral song synced to the video of the PS1 opening FMV.
