* SameContentDifferentRating: Both ''ZoE'' games on the Playstation 2 received M for Mature ratings in the US, despite having precisely one bloody scene each between the two of them, no profanity, and no sexual content. When the HD Collection came out in the US, the version without the Metal Gear Rising demo received a somewhat-more-sane Teen rating.

* HeyItsThatVoice: In the Japanese version ''Dolores, i'':
** James Links was [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam Slegger]], and later became [[Anime/HaloLegends Master Chief]] and [[Anime/PantyAndStockingWithGarterbelt Masculimus Surprise]]!
** [[Creator/YoshikoSakakibara Dr. Rachel Links]] is [[Manga/{{Hellsing}} Alucard's master]]!
** [[Creator/NarumiHidaka Noel Links]] was [[Anime/MobileFighterGGundam Allenby Beardsley]] and [[Anime/TheVisionOfEscaflowne Eriya]].
** [[Creator/HoukoKuwashima Dolores]] once competed with [[Manga/AzumangaDaioh Sakaki]] in high-school, became a [[MsFanservice sexy]] [[VideoGame/DeadOrAlive ninja]], played as sexy archer that traveled with [[VideoGame/EternalSonata Allegretto]], and an [[VideoGame/CastlevaniaOrderOfEcclesia emotionless vampire hunter]].
** The games' English cast famously seems to be on the obscure/no-name side of the voice acting world. There is one exception, though -- Elena, who is voiced by Debra Rogers ([[Franchise/DotHack Mia]], [[VideoGame/{{Tekken}} Anna Williams]], [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamThe08thMSTeam Karen Joshua]]).
** Nohman is, surprisingly enough, [[WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls Mojo Jojo]]. On the other hand, Lloyd is [[TwistedMetal Sweet Tooth.]] [[OneOfTheseIsNotLikeTheOthers And Dingo is the PA Announcer from the NBA 2K series.]]

* NoExportForYou: Prior to HD Collection's version of ''Zone of the Enders: The 2nd Runner'', a [[UpdatedRerelease Special Edition]] of game was released in Japan and Europe, but strangely never to North America. The Special Edition featured some graphical and frame-rate improvements over the original game, new difficulty levels[[labelnote:*]](the Japanese version has an Extreme difficulty and a Super Hard difficulty in-between [[HarderThanHard Very Hard]] and [[NintendoHard Extreme]] mode, whereas the European version only gets the Extreme mode)[[/labelnote]], new cutscenes and battle sequences, an expaned Extra Mission mode, and sub-weapon tutorials for the VR Training. This changed though as the HD Collection includes the European version of the Special Edition of ''The 2nd Runner'' for the North American release.
** And there's the two [[LimitedSpecialCollectorsUltimateEdition premium editions]] for the Japanese version of ''Zone of the Enders HD Edition'', which has ''two'' books instead of one from the Western release, and a Blu-ray re-release of the ''[[TheAnimeOfTheGame Zone of the Enders: 2167 IDOLO]]'' [[OriginalVideoAnimation OVA]] with the most expense of two packages.

* PreviewPiggybacking: The first ''Zone of the Enders'' was widely known for its inclusion of the highly-anticipated ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid2SonsOfLiberty'', which was the biggest reason many ''Metal Gear Solid'' fans bought the game. History repeated itself in 2012 with the HD Collection of the series, this time bundling a demo of ''VideoGame/MetalGearRisingRevengeance''.
