...Well, all the articles here are, in a way. But this one moreso, and the article may contain incomplete information and editor's notes.
Mankind knew that they cannot change society. So instead of reflecting on themselves, they blamed the unused content.
Guilty Gear -Strive- marks the final chapter of Sol Badguy's story. Do YOU know the smell of the game?

Dragon Ball FighterZ leftovers
Found within the files of this game are leftover HUD elements from an older build of Dragon Ball FighterZ, another fighting game developed by Arc System Works. Said lifebars also mention "Jinzouningen #20" or Android 20/Dr. Gero, who wasn't in FighterZ in any fashion.

Thank You For Playing
Guilty Gear Xrd REV 3 leftovers?
Unused Accent Core Icons
In the Gallery folder, there is an unused banner for XX Accent Core songs with an unused icon being present in the Stage Select folder. These were probably made for future-proofing in case "Keep The Flag Flying" was to be added.
Check if the other unused characters have any unused files
Listed among the playable cast are 5 characters that are actually not playable. Those are:
- ASK (presumably Asuka R. Kreutz)
- COS (Happy Chaos)
- GLD (Goldlewis Dickinson)
- JAM (Jam Kuradoberi)
- JKO (Jack-O)
As part of the DLC season passes, Goldlewis Dickinson was released on 2021/07/27, Jack-O was released on 2021/08/27, Happy Chaos was released on 2021/11/30, and Asuka was released on 2023/05/25. DLC 4, Baiken (Released 2022/01/28), and DLC 5, Testament (Released 2022/03/28), are not on this list however.
The source's account has been suspended. Are the tweets' contents available elsewhere?
One of the unused characters, Jam, actually still has files left in the game. First up is her model, which is actually brand new and not a leftover from Guilty Gear Xrd, yet goes completely unused (the Story Mode staff roll uses pre-rendered images instead).
Post gifs of the animations themselves
She also appears to have special interactions with Nagoriyuki, Giovanna, and Anji, further giving credence that she was intended to be a playable.
Dragon Ball FighterZ leftovers
Guilty Gear Xrd leftovers
VS Xrd Characters
Nagoriyuki, Giovanna, Anji Mito, and Goldlewis all have unused animation folders for fighting every Xrd character, even those that aren't in this game. However, there are no animations inside these folders.
Xrd Sol Badguy Animations
Sol has leftover animations for when he's hit by an opponent Sol's Instant Kill (including the Dragon Install version), as well as camera animations for his Instant Kills. Additionally, the camera animation for his Xrd intro is leftover. All of these assets appear to be lifted directly from Xrd, with no modifications to fit Strive.
Amongst the narration/announcer voice lines is this destroyed call. This isn't from a previous game, could this mean insta-kills were considered for Strive?
Roman Cancel Announcement
Additionally, there are unused narration/announcer voice lines for Roman Cancel, like in the XX series.
