LEGO Ninjago: Spinjitzu Smash is pretty much a complete ripoff of the Mega Man Battle Network series.

Battle Network Leftovers

In the first release of Spinjitzu Smash (v0.0.1), it was discovered that gameplay wasn't the only thing ripped off: several Battle Network assets were included as well! After the findings were released on Protodude's Rockman Corner blog, LEGO quickly revised the game and removed the files - though not quickly enough that v0.0.1 wasn't saved for posterity:

Found within the v0.0.1 SWF were these sprites:

MegaMan.EXE

The iteration of Mega Man from the Battle Network series was used in-game as a placeholder character before being replaced by blocky ninja dudes.

Mettool

Everyone's favorite Mettaur made it into the game as well as a placeholder enemy.

Unused Text

There are several cases of placeholder text in the Spinjitzu Smash SWF, mostly the generic Lorem ipsum placeholders found in many developer programs.

 Some popup text.
 It's poppin' fresh!
