This is a list of licensed Famicom/NES games that have been pirated and go under a different name; whether the game's title was actually hacked (and nothing else major changes about the game) or only the cartridge art uses a different name.

NOTE: If you're adding a title to this list, also make a redirect page with that title that links back to here.

Games whose titles were changed in-game Edit

Original Game Alternate Titles Links Notes
1942 Star Wars: Episode I [1] Shows up on the 200 in 1 Super Game multicart.
Donkey Kong 3 Gorilla 3 Name likely changed for copyright reasons.
Ghostbusters II Ghostbusters III
King's Knight Lord of the Ring Shows up on the 9 in 1 Super Game multicart.
Mario Bros. Mr. Mary Name likely changed for copyright reasons.
Pac-Man Goblin Name likely changed for copyright reasons.
Super Mario Bros. "2" [2] Title has no real name, just a poorly drawn picture of Mario next to a castle, and the number 2. Single cartridges with the game often feature no game title on the front.
Super Mario Bros.:The Lost Levels. (also known as Super Mario Bros 2. in Japan) "3" Sequel to 2, modify the tittle screen with sprites from Mario, Luigi, Peach, Bowser and 2 Cheep Cheeps. Some graphics are a bit glitched and the name of Mario is changed to Rambo
Super Mario Bros. 2 (also known as Super Mario USA in Japan) Super Bros. 2, Super Bros. 5 [3]


Appears to be based on the PAL version rather than the NTSC version. Super Bros. 2 changes the copyright to "CTC". Super Bros. 5 changes the copyright to "ECE" and changes the year to 1991. Super Bros. 5 is often found under the Super Wonderful Mario label.
Blaster Master Back to the Future IV
