Are you a bad enough dude to
Animal Crossing: Wild World is Nintendo's DS sequel to the surprise 2001/2002 hit Animal Crossing. This is the game that would become the basis for every following game in the series, replacing the top-down, grid-scrolling view with a front-facing, log-scrolling one, and adding a slew of new features that would become commonplace in later games (among other things, you finally have hair). As a result, it and later main-series entries provide a vastly different experience compared to the N64 and GameCube entries.

Some of these need some elaboration.
While they are popularly referred to as "seeds", the internal names for these items are usually garbled characters. They are not unused per se, as the game uses them internally when creating the town layout. However, they are normally not obtainable outside of Action Replay cheats, and for good reason.
When dropped from the inventory, they usually spawn a landscape feature: a tree, a house, a structure...and even townspeople, depending on the nature of the seed. You need to enter then exit a house to see the changes, which can't be reversed once saved.
While used by many people just to customize their own town layout, some used them during Wi-Fi visits in other players' towns to create game-breaking layouts that may trap players irreversibly...or worse, cause the game to crash by overloading the system and rendering the game useless if it crashes on the title screen (as the Erase File option can't be accessed).
Nook does sell these, but the paint goes straight to your roof without ever touching your inventory. Strangely, they're found in the player's guide.
In Animal Crossing: New Leaf, this can be obtained normally.
Sold Out Sign
Come in sets of 2, 4, and 5. While being unused items, their graphics are used for neighbors moving in or out.

Incorrectly uses the leaf graphics when you are inside your house, but uses its normal graphics outside.
Two of these are programmed into the game, in fact.
Unused Floor/Wallpaper Sets
There are four unused flooring and wallpaper sets for Nook's Cranny, Nook 'n' Go, Nookway, and Nookington's upstairs.
Some testing text can be found under /script/ENG/message/Other/test_.bmg. Most of the entries test various text commands.

This game has a crash debugger triggered similarly to the one in The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. This one is a bit less technical and more informative, but a lot less in-depth.
To access the crash dump screen, first crash the game. Then, hold L + R + A + Left, let go, hold Down + B, let go, and finally hold Start + Select. This screen also exists in Super Mario 64 DS and New Super Mario Bros.
Present in the file data/BUILDTIME.

document other changes and glitch fixes made in version 1.1 of the game (ex. Talk On Chairs being fixed in version 1.1)
A revision of the game was released in Japan and US as Version 1.1, and it fixed a few glitches present in Version 1.0 of the Japanese and US versions.
Gulliver's UFO Glitch
When the player has hit Gulliver's UFO out of the sky with the slingshot, the UFO will always be bound to crash land somewhere in the topmost signposts of the town. When those sign posts are already occupied by some villager's house, the crash landing noise will be heard, but the screen will never fade out and the game will softlock.
Virtual Console Changes
When Animal Crossing: Wild World got a digital re-release on the Wii U, the player cannot visit other towns, making the Katie Set or the Mario Series unobtainable without hacking. Although, Nookingtons and Shampoodle can still be unlocked.
