Battletoads (Windows, Xbox One)
This game has unused graphics.
Battletoads is a semi-reboot of the Battletoads series released in 2020 for the Xbox ONE and PC through Steam, 25 years after the last game. It opts for a more saturday morning cartoon style and a bigger focus on the story compared to the semi-serious punk style of the original, something that gave it a mixed reception among fans of the originals while being more favorably received among new players.
This is also the first original Battletoads game not developed by Rare, instead being developed by indie Dlala Studios.
A group of NPCs who would ask for autographs of the Battletoads in the first stage, conveniently named "Autograph Seekers" in the game's files. They all have full animations of waiting in line, receiving their autographs, and walking away. Only the animation of them already holding their autographs is actually used in-game.
Notably, the alien guy inside the large space suit doesn't appear anywhere in the game.
A single-sprite enemy named "Thief Ship" in the game's files, which would have appeared in one of the space levels.
