** In ''VideoGame/PhantasyStarOnline'', there is a weapon named Rika's Claw. ''VideoGame/PhantasyStarUniverse'' has a weapon named Falclaw. Both weapons look identical... because they reference the same character, a Newman named Rika in English versions of ''VideoGame/PhantasyStarIV'' and Fal in Japanese versions. Similar, but less severe, violations include the weapon named Sato in ''PSO'' which is named Shato in ''PSU'', and the enemy named Gigobooma in ''PSO' and Jigo Booma in ''PSU''.

** Ganon's name was written as "Gannon" in every version of the [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaI original game]] released before the 2003 ''Collector's Edition'' compilation came out for the UsefulNotes/NintendoGameCube in 2003. The whole mess spawned [[FandomBerserkButton its own meme]].

* The ''VideoGame/LegacyOfTheWizard'' manual names the mother, son, grandmother and grandfather "Meyna," "Roas," "Jiela," and "Douel" respectively (though the mother is "Mayna Worzen" in the credits), whereas the intro screen for the UsefulNotes/{{MSX}}2 version (''ideoGame/DragonSlayer IV: Drasle Family'') names them Maia, Royas, Geera and Dawel. The English version changed the name of the FinalBoss to Keela, but in Japan its name was either Dilgyos or Dilguios.

** Special notice must be given to foreigner Maribel/Mariber/Maeriberii Hearn/Haarn/Haan (mix and match as you will). As she only appears in the music [=CDs=], not the games, there is no official Romanization of her name. This is even [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] by her (most definitely Japanese) friend Renko Usami, who can't even pronounce her full name, and always calls her "Mary." Even ''that'' can be Romanized as "Merri," "Merii," or "Merry" instead. The poor girl just can't get a break. [[FutureMeScaresMe It is hinted, however]], [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lafcadio_Hearn that the correct one is Hearn]].
