Unused Sprites in SMB3 and SMW (extra SM64 content)

Postby [Egg]Egg » Thu May 14, 2015 2:56 am

SPOILERS: THESE ARE UNUSED IMAGES IN SMB3 AND SMW. THEY ARE NEVER USED IN GAME.
There are actually unused sprites in SMB3, and Super Mario World.. * means that it is used in SMBX.
Golden Cheep Cheep and Green Para-Beetle:
Image
Image
Wheels and Spikes:
Image
Beta Castle?
Image
Unused Mario Sprites*
Image
Unused Propellers:
Image
Unused parts come up! :D
Koopas hosting the item mini-game:
Image
Hammer Bros hosting mini-game:
Image
Unused Mario Sprites (mini-game wise)
Image
Early Ideas:
One powerup was to turn Mario into a Centaur (half man, half horse), though was rejected before development.
Objects:
The game's graphics reveal an item-sized Toad icon among some of the game's suits; it makes no changes to gameplay when granted to Mario. Later, this has been proven to actually be a Hammer Suit with palette errors, and it appears clearly in a "?" block in 7-8, giving Mario the Hammer Suit. There is also a powerup that acts like a Goomba's Shoe and also looks like a glitched one.

A set of blocks, with a large "?" block surrounded with smaller "?" blocks was also a scrapped object. This may have been something used in a bonus game/area.
Super Mario World :D
Super Mario World was going to be called Super Mario Bros. 4.
Red Coin (worth 5 for some reason)
Image
Golden Mushroom (is a flying one and worth 1-up)
Image
Some of the unused sprites in SMW (features early small mario and has Raccoon Mario)
Image
Early level, possibly Yoshi's Island 1...
Image
Early Map Images:
Image
Image
Unused Platform:
Image
Purple Swoopers (they were intended to replace the boos, looks like Super Mario 64 Variant) and, also there is half of a purple spiny top... That's an unused sprite.
Image
Unfinished Piranha Plant:
Image
Small Door: (is actually half a regular door but who cares)
Image
No Yoshi Sign:
Image
Glitched Background:
Image
Unused Translucent Mode (seen in early photos)
Image
Dino Rhinos Breathing Fire:
Image
Unused "Switch Palace 2" tileset header:
Image
Unused sprites on overworld:
On the Map Screen, there were four sprites that were never used in the final game. All of them are accessible via certain hacking programs.

A Lakitu which circles around Mario's head on the overworld map.
A Blue Jay which flies around Mario's head like the Lakitu, but will follow him to the submaps, sans Vanilla Dome.
An animated Piranha Plant.
A Koopaling that doesn't look quite like any of the real Koopalings. It can force Mario to enter a level, like the Hand Traps of Super Mario Bros. 3. It ambushes Mario on the overworld. Because it was not finished, it corrupts Mario's position on the overworld map, and thus makes the game unplayable except for level 0, which is a never ending bonus game. Three copies of this sprite were actually used in the game. However, due to the specific setup of the overworld, players will never see them on an unmodified copy of Super Mario World.
Image
Debug functions

Using the Super Mario World ROM and a hex editor, players may access debug functions that were left in the game. These include:

The ability to cycle through Mario's different forms using +Control Pad up + Select Button.
The ability to place Mario anywhere in a level using L + A Button. This can also be performed using a Game Genie code.
The ability to play in slow motion.
The ability to win a level with Start Button + Select Button.
The ability to have infinite star power.
The ability to change Yoshi's colors in the Overworld with Select Button.
Extra:
Yoshi was going to be playable on the NES, but it had to be saved up for the SNES due to the NES' limitations.
Image
So yoshi was going to be a pterosaur... :/
SUPER MARIO 64 :mrgreen:
Yoshi egg:
Image
Trampoline (top)
Image
Trampoline (side)
Image
Cactus (unused, possibly took 1 wedge away every time the player touched it)
Image
Unused Flower in Lethal Lava Land:
Image
Unused Key:
Image
Unused Small Bully:
Image
Cracked Ice:
Image
Beta Shells (note that there is a red one)
Image
Beta Bowser Fight:
Image
Unused "U" texture:
Image
Meaner Looking Thwomp (wouldn't it be better if they weren't blue?)
Image
Early LLL (Lethal Lava Land)
Image
Eartly DDD (dire dire docks)
Image
Early screenshot of Super Mario 64:
Image
Blargg (the texture is unfinished)
Image
Early Penguin:
Image
Early Pokey Sprite (MOVE FASTER, POKEY!)
Image
Early Peach's Castle:
Image
Early lethal lava land part 2:
Image
Early Bomp:
Image
Early Whomp's Fortress:
Image
Mario with key counter:
Image
Yoshi Egg in Motion:
Image
Key Icon:
Image
Unused Boo Key (say it fast and it sounds like "Spooky)
Image
Early Ideas:
32 courses were initially planned for the game, but only 15 of them made it into the final product. In some sketch-ups of the game's early development in Super Mario History, Mario is seen jumping on a piano with the phrase ピアノの上よく(Well on the piano). He is also seen climbing a ladder, swinging around a pole, pushing a door and a block of ice, and crushing a rock with his head.
Luigi was also going to be playable but due to hardware limitations he was left out. But with Toad's Tool 64, type in L is real 2401 and it lets you play as Luigi. He has no gameplay changes. But, he was finally playable in Super Mario 64 DS, along with Yoshi and Wario. His stats are identical to Yoshi, except that Luigi has a bit of power.

Also if you don't know one's gender, use "they" or "them" instead of "he" or "him". In this case I sexually identify as an egg.

Is this Image what I think it is
Nintendo, you sneaky dogs, you.

Aside from that, anybody who doesn't already know about SMB3's unused sprites has been sitting in the dark.

This topic just gave me an idea for a new topic, "Unused/Beta Content in Video Games." We could share information about unused content in video games, and since theres a lot of unused content in a lot of games I think the topic could get pretty interesting.

I don't have the time to make a new topic at the moment but I encourage someone else to create one, theres a ton of unused content I'd love to share with you guys.

Sorry if this comes off the wrong way, but we already know about most of this stuff. Hell, Squishy Rex turned most of them into Smbx Gfx and even recolored most of 'em。

That is not true. I can even prove it myself. Go download the NES SMW Rom on Freeroms, and Get nestopia.

I'll provide some screenshots now.

The purple swoopers are actually part of the unfinished Bat ceiling, which is similar to the Boo ceiling.

Please don't make those sorts of posts either. If you have something to add to the discussion, then please do. Saying hi to bump a topic is also against the forum rules.

Nintendo didnt make SMW NES. It was made after SMW SNES, by someone else without Nintendo design documents.

Yes. It was actually made by Taiwanese pirate developers Hummer Team.
