* ''VideoGame/{{Ray|Series}}Storm'' had several changes made to it for the North American [=PS1=] port. First, this version raises the default difficulty of all stages from 2 (out of 8) to 4. This in itself isn't so bad. What makes this particularly sinister is that this version also introduces "Training Mode", which locks the player out of the second half of the game if any stage's difficulty is set below 4. This means you can't play on Japanese defaults and see the entire game, much like with ''VideoGame/StreetsOfRage 3''.

* ''VideoGame/BustAGroove'': Frida's second player hair color is changed from black to blue. Four songs were replaced with English re-recordings, with three songs retitled: "Knife of the Blue Skies" became "Bust a Groove", "Crack a Smile" became "Shorty and the EZ Mouse", and "The Rumored Capoeira" became "CAPOEIRA". Hamm's ganguro appearance is altered to avoid similarities to blackface. Hamm's song "I luv hamburgers" replaces the line "[=McDonald's=], Burger King, or any other place" with ""Hamburger lovers let me hear you say ho" and removes "nigga" from the end. Pinky's song "I know" has the line "Nigga move!" toned down in volume. Hiro-kun is called Hiro and is no longer smoking. Strike's hip flask is changed to a can of soda. Strike's song "Power" has references to alcohol replaced with instrumentals.

* The [=NES=], beloved and revolutionary game console though it may be, was noticeably inferior to its Japanese counterpart, the Famicom. Nintendo chose to redesign the system for its American release to implement CopyProtection and make it look less like a game console, because retailers refused to stock video game consoles in the wake of the Great Video Game Crash of 1983. This redesign, however, introduced many problems not present in the Famicom, such as reliability issues stemming from the complex VCR-like cartridge loader, and the inability to use sound chips in cartridges to improve sound quality.

** This is also frequently [[InvertedTrope inverted]], with later international releases often getting [[BonusMaterial bonus tracks]] that the initial North American releases do not. Niall Stokes writes about one such bonus track ("Fast Cars" from {{U2}}'s ''How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb'') in ''[[http://books.google.ca/books?id=VX9LPgAACAAJ&dq=The+Stories+Behind+Every+U2+Song&hl=en&sa=X&ei=oAD8ULr6HYOG8QSTyoCICg&redir_esc=y The Stories Behind Every U2 Song]]'': "''They needed an extra track in Japan. It's to do with release dates and the dangers of imported copies and so it's a tradition with U2 to give their Japanese fans something extra as a kind of bonus for waiting. The UK and Ireland generally get the benefit in this instance with the inclusion of 'Fast Cars' on the album release.''" [[note]]This example doubles as an example of a European band (or at least their record label) treating North America as a "domestic" release, and their home country (Ireland) as "international".[[/note]]

* PAL versions of PS2 games like Onimusha and Disgaea had their Japanese audio tracks removed to save space on the disc, or to fit it on a CD instead of a DVD.

* Film/{{Deadpool 2016}}: In many, many other countries with stricter censorship codes, the sex scenes (as well as scenes where anyone's penis were visible) were completely cut from the film, this despite the film already being rated to be for adults only to begin with. On the other hand, this is a better option compared to BannedInChina in many ways, and the excessive violence, expletives and crude humor are still left in uncut.
