Bad Ending

The Japanese version has two bad endings, which are triggered if you let one of the last bosses escape. These were removed for the North American version. However, the translation for these endings can be found inside the ROM of the North American version.

Bad Ending 1 Bad Ending 2
If you let Pandora escape. If you let Osaru escape.‎
The earth is in great peril.
Don't give up.
You still have one chance
to save mankind.
Now the world is in 
great danger from
the gorgonzula.
You are the world's last hope.
You have one more chance
to save the world.
(Discovery: ReyVGM)


In the Japanese version there's a second loop when you beat the game once, while in the North American version you go back to the title screen instead. Each loop had a different ending, which were combined into one for the North American release.
