After Conker's Pocket Tales, Rare decided to take their "adorable little squirrel" N64 game Twelve Tales: Conker 64 (which was in development at the same time), scrap it, and recycle some concepts in an M-rated adventure game called Conker's Bad Fur Day.
There's a lot more, like all this and this too.

Would also have been for the SHC squirrels.
A typically boggle-eyed bag of corn which would fit perfectly in the Barn Boys chapter. A possible scrapped character, and judging by its unpolished look and lack of mouth, a minor one.
Bug Catching Net
A bug-catching net that seems to fit best in the Windy or Hungover chapters.
Table Candle Stick
Judging by its look, this would have been used in Count Batula's mansion.
Twelve Tales Crate
This crate was seen as a background object during development of Twelve Tales.
Experimenting Cutscene Leftovers
An animation of an Army squirrel laying down and cut open is in the game's data, along with an animation of a Tedi surgeon. Both were originally intended for a cutscene in the It's War chapter that was cut late in the game's development cycle at Nintendo's request; however, the scene was intact in the ECTS Demo.
Other Cutscene Leftovers
Unused variations of existing cutscenes exist in the ECTS Demo:
- In the cutscene where you first encounter Rodent, there are two tied-up squirrels that aren't present in the final. They were reintroduced in the Xbox remake, as seen here.
- The Great Mighty Poo's intro is different. In the final, he rises with a corn tooth on his hand.
Unused Conker Animations
This video shows some animations of Conker doing some things. An unused jumping animation, a Conker farting idle animation, and a tail punch attack (possibly a leftover from Twelve Tales). Some of these animations are of him petting Pikachu from the unused Pikachu cutscene.
Crash Debug Menu
Explain in better detail.
A debug mode can be enabled by entering the cheat code "XFYHIJERPWAL_IELWZS" (where "_" is a space). When the game crashes, it will display a crash debug menu. Press A to enter the menu. While in this menu, a version number and build date can be seen. Selecting HOSTDEBUG will exit the menu.
Press D-Up to enable it.
All of this is used by the debugger, usually loaded at RAM location 802D0000 whenever the game crashes unless it's a severe sound error.

Present at 0x801551EC in memory is some unused main menu text which indicates that additional languages were planned at one point as well as a widescreen setting. Several strings of dialogue imply a Japanese release was considered at one point, but ultimately scrapped.

Some debug related cheats that were used in the prototypes. Only the second cheat can be entered which enables the crash debugger. The rest of them appear to be disabled in the final game as trying to enter one results in a "wrong cheat" message.

Some placeholder cheats also left over from the prototypes. These are unenterable due to the lack of an asterisk in the game's cheat entry keyboard.

Provide ways to see these graphics in-game. Grab the required GameShark codes and ROM pointers and update this section as necessary.
A handful of textures from this game went unnoticed during the transition to Bad Fur Day. Most of them have been left opaque to preserve the details.
A bunch of dancing/singing flowers and plants. The majority of these were seen in this 30-minute gameplay video of Twelve Tales. The above guesses on how they would be animated may not be 100% accurate.
A logo saying "Conker 64" along with Conker's head to the left.
A green-yellow colored fence, seen in Twelve Tales footage.
Textures for the outside of some of the houses.
32x32 sized controller buttons. The A and B button graphics were used in the ECTS Demo.
Bird wing textures, in both green and blue colors.
A brick texture.
Crow wings and face textures. Crows can actually be spotted in the ECTS Demo of Bad Fur Day, though whether they use the same textures is unknown.
An animation for a dirthill or something falling apart.
An animal nose. It looks similar to a texture used for a boss in Twelve Tales, K.O. the Cat, except this one is more blue. It's not known where this would have been used.
Unlit/lit wall textures.
Textures for a Roman building. A Roman-themed world (or at least close to it) is in Bad Fur Day, but none of these textures are used there.
Small 16×16 controller button icons.
The only Twelve Tales-related texture of Conker left in the ROM. It is actually used on Conker's fifth model when he is far away from the camera, but the texture remains unseen because of this.
Conker's Bad Fur Day/Other
Textures for an unused "!" barrel. The bottom texture cannot be seen because the bottom of the barrel doesn't seem to be modelled out.
Two faces of Berri showing expressions not normally seen on her. They actually belong to Poppet, the little girl from the experiment, who seems to share a few of Berri's textures. None of Berri's models display them normally, though they can be seen via hacking.
A rather possessed-looking version of Conker's normal eyeball image. Conker has two (likewise unused) expressions where the texture gets used, which are impossible to see without hacking.
Seems to be some texture for showing when Conker is pissed off? Regardless, it remains unused.
Textures of arm plaster cast with funny faces on them. Possibly a inside joke by the developers.
Hidden Stone Wall
Hidden outside of the Windy area is what appears to be a stone wall that never appears during normal gameplay.
Unreachable Chocolate Piece
In Poo Cabin, there is an area blocked off by a set of bars close to the very top of the cabin. Despite being in plain view, the player can never get behind these bars at any point during the game, even when the cabin has been flooded in "Sewage Sucks".
Using the GameShark moonjump code, however, the player can levitate to the very top of the cabin, go out of bounds, and land behind the bars. The player can then obtain the chocolate bar piece behind it, but that's all that's there. Despite what it looks like, there isn't a loading area behind the chocolate bar piece. A director's commentary (NSFW) confirms that there were plans to create another section for the alcove, but director Chris Seavor states that he left the anti-gravity chocolate in the game because "[he] knew it would fuckin' annoy people."
This unreachable chocolate piece is also present in Conker: Live & Reloaded.
In the Beach level, about northeast outside of the area is a tile of water just...floating there, inanimate. As the level is very dark, this tile can barely be seen unless cheats are used to brighten it up. The level layout might have been different at one point, and the designers probably forgot to delete this tile.
Fun thing: you can swim in it, only to end up drifting away, falling off of it, and into the bottomless space. The water is static, and doesn't wave up and down like the normal water at the start of the level.
Near the start of the dinosaur themed world is an inaccessible cave closed off by a grate. Using cheats to enter it reveals that there's nothing inside of it.
Partially Unused Music
I need to find the original names for both songs in Josh W.'s rip for reference, since I renamed them.
This is used in the very beginning of the game, when the milk falls from the table in Panther King's castle, but the first 32 seconds are cut and only the last four seconds remain. The full music is an alternate version of the song that plays when Conker first meets the Tediz inside their base in It's War chapter. This version is much shorter, does not loop, and has a high-pitched violin-like instrument near the end that slowly picks up in volume.
It was used in an ECTS prototype in the first cutscene of the Casuality Dept. subchapter.
Another unused song with a similar sounding instrument used in the song mentioned above. It was probably meant to play right after it, but isn't used. Rather freaky sounding, and loud.
And lots of small unused character speeches in particular as well.

Camera Sfx 2
Conker's Bad Fur Day
Add the unused character sounds.
- The European version added a screen adjustment to the options menu.
- In the hungover chapter, when Conker hits the gargoyle with the frying pan, he makes a sound when he begins to stands up. This sound was removed in the European version.
- During the fight against the bull, when you get the first cow out by having the bull ram into the target, Conker makes a “Swoosh” sound as he “punches” before saying something about taking control of the bull. Again, this sound was removed in the European version.
- In the US version, the collision for one of the walls above Berri's cage in Rock Solid is somewhat broken. By jumping into this wall at a certain angle, you can clip through the wall and land inside Berri's cage. The collision for this wall was fixed in the European version.
Rare Replay Differences

|This page or section needs more images. |
There's a whole lotta words here, but not enough pictures. Please fix this.
- All mentions of Nintendo were removed from the credits.
- The startup sequence is much shorter.
- All N64 button prompts were changed into Xbox One button prompts. The voice clips weren't updated, so characters will still refer to the N64 buttons.
- The blur effect on the pause menu was removed.
