Bangai-O Spirits/Unused Stages

Jump to navigation Jump to search

This is a sub-page of Bangai-O Spirits.

Unique

These stages are completely original, baring no resemblance to any other stages in the game.

Map Info
BangaiOSpirits-charaga stg.png
Stage Name キャラが
Translated Charaga
File Name charaga_stg.bin

This stage is based off the arcade game Galaga. It would have fit right in with the other stages that are based on classic games, such as Pac-Man, Super Mario Bros., and R-Type. The stage may have been omitted due to its simplicity and easiness. It can be completed within a couple seconds by simply aiming an EX attack upwards.

Map Info
BangaiOSpirits-matenrou stg.png Stage Name まてんろう
Translated Skyscraper
File Name matenrou_stg.bin

The player must quickly worm through the path and take out the three target buildings before the blocks fall, locking them out of the second half. Each building also has explosive blocks behind them, slowing the player down if they collide into them. The player must then plow through the towers of buildings, which each have F.Laser turrets behind them; the rightmost ones hiding F.Homing turrets.

Map Info
BangaiOSpirits-nakai30 BlackSquare.png Stage Name
File Name nakai30_BlackSquare.bin

A fairly straight-forward stage with no gimmicks. The stage has no name, but the file name suggests it would be called Black Square.

Map Info
BangaiOSpirits-nakai31 BlockWorld.png Stage Name
File Name nakai31_BlockWorld.bin

Another somewhat straight-forward stage. It also has no name, but the file name suggests it would be called Block World.

Map Info
BangaiOSpirits-posurassyu stg.png Stage Name ぽすらっしゅ
Translated Boss Rush
File Name posurassyu_stg.bin

This stage contains four different rooms, each with their own target boss inside. The player must quickly defeat each boss before the explosive trail reaches the falling blocks, locking them out and preventing them from completing the stage.

Modified

Hmmm...
To do:
Get final maps for a few of these, including DLC stages.

These stages appear to be early/alternate versions of stages that were included in the game.

Boost!
Stage Number

Treasure's Best 014
File Name
dassyu_kai_stg.bin dassyu_stg.bin

An alternate version of "Boost!" with alternating H.Cannon and H.Laser turrets. The H.Lasers fire automatically, destroying the wall between you, forcing you to deal with them before reaching the Cores. Judging by the "kai" in the name, this was supposed to be a "revised" version of the stage, likely meant to be included along with the original.

Stage Number

File Name
sumartoball_stg.bin maegawa4_stg.bin

Appears to be an early version of the Japan-exclusive pachinko stage, of which it shares the same name. It shares a similar idea, but the execution is very different. In the final version the baseballs are used to destroy the targets, while in the early version the soccer balls just fall in the holes without much purpose.

DLC

Downloadable stages were made available on the game's official website. Three of them were created for V Jump magazine (one being playable at Tokyo Game Show). Variations of these stages are included in the game's data.

Copies

These stages appear to be identical to other stages featured in the game.
