This article is a work in progress.
...Well, all the articles here are, in a way. But this one moreso, and the article may contain incomplete information and editor's notes.
To do:
  • Add the data mined files for the DLC characters, and Jam's animations.

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?

Unused Graphics

To do:
Replace the uploaded Twitter-compressed JPG versions with the original versions of those graphical assets

Dragon Ball FighterZ leftovers

Guilty Gear Xrd REV 3 leftovers?

Located in the UI folder is a logo for a Guilty Gear Xrd3. Was there originally going to be another revision of Guilty Gear Xrd?

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 incase Order-Sol and A.B.A were to be added.

Unused Characters

To do:
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 (presumably Happy Chaos)
  • GLD (Goldlewis Dickinson)
  • JAM (Jam Kuradoberi)
  • JKO (Jack-O)

As part of the DLC season pass, Goldlewis Dickinson was released on 2021/07/27 and Jack-O was released on 2021/08/27.

Jam Kuradoberi

To do:
The source's account has been suspended. Are the tweets' contents available elsewhere?

GG Strive JamModel.png

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).

To do:
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 (and might become DLC later on).

Unused Models

Dragon Ball FighterZ leftovers

As if the leftover HUD elements weren't enough, there are also model leftovers from Dragon Ball FighterZ, including Android 16's severed head and Shenron.

Guilty Gear Xrd leftovers

Also found inside the files are leftovers from Guilty Gear Xrd -SIGN-, such as this model of Sol Badguy.

Unused Animations

Anji Mito

To do:
Maybe actually post GIFs of those unused animations if they aren't empty/dummied out

Anji has animations for against every Xrd character, even those that aren't playable in this game.
