Own a duck to use in duck races
After the cutscenes when you've finished catching leaves at the temple for the first time, go back and try it again.
If you catch 4 leaves all together (not in a row but actually all at the same time), you will hear a 'quack' and a feather will drop from the tree. Catch it (be ready because it's fast!) and Ryo will notice a duck in the tree.
Choose 'catch' from the selections that appear and then watch a funny (if not incomplete) cutscene.
The duck will then be yours for use in the duck races.

100 Missiles In Afterburner
Get to the third level and press Left + X. Your missile count will increase by 100.
To get the bad/alternate ending, you must play the game up until June 31st, 1987. At the end of this day Ryo will get into bed and it will occur. A good way to quickly get it is to keep failing the QTE at Zhangyu Barber's.
Clear Pause Screen

Video of Shenmue on Saturn
Beat the game and after the credits you'll be able to watch a video of Shenmue back when it was a Saturn game before it was switched to DC from the arcade section of the Shenmue Collection.
