This picture of Hulk's face can be found in frontend/art. It's not referenced in any scripts of the game and looks completely unused.
Some unused frontend backgrounds and loading screens are left in the p3d files of frontend folder:
There are also some temporary menu Hulks from promo arts:
Also there's one unused tazer inventory picture left near other inventory pickups from Chemical Effect level. Looks like Bruce could get a weapon on that level! Even the official manual in the files of the game says there is such ability to equip weapons found on levels.
You can create args.txt file in the root folder of the game and put the following arguments there (hyphen symbol is required) to use some hidden possibilities of the game:
Soak and supersoak make the game load _soak versions of the level scripts instead of _scenario ones. It makes Hulk and Bruce teleport from one point of the map to another literally completing the levels for you. Hulk also uses his rage powered ground slam attack after these teleports, but takes damage from them. The game also starts levels for you so you don't need to press a confirm button. However, soak makes the game load the first level instantly and it doesn't let you to go back to menu using "quit" button in the pause menu. It also makes Hulk resistant to enemy damage. Supersoak on the other hand unlocks everything (cheats, bonus materials), but not challenges. Fesoak suddenly unlocks everything including the challenges, but loads normal _scenario versions of the level scripts. Maybe because FE is for frontend, so it only breaks the main menu. Maybe some additional side effects of these arguments are yet to be noticed.
Framerateicon makes some weird green rectangle appear in the upper left corner of the screen, but it doesn't show anything.
Lang argument gives you an option to change the language of the game. Put one of these languages codes after the -lang parameter (and don't forget the space): de, en, es, fr, it. Example: -lang de (it will make the game load the deutsch language).
And level actually works almost like soak, but it loads the required level instantly and doesn't do anything "else". To load the level you need - put the code of this level after the argument. You can see the codes of every level in Art\Levels folder. For example, -level C2L5 will load the Savior level.
Also fmvvol can be used to change the volume of the cutscenes. For example, fmvvol 0 will make the cutscenes silent.
Some more arguments can be found in Hulk.exe, but it's unclear what they do:
- -window (it doesn't make the game load in windowed mode, what's then?)
- -nofilenotfound (maybe it disables some error, but it's not like you even get it during the gameplay)
- -lighthack (it freezes the game on level loading, because it requires lighthack.p3d file in art folder. However, there's no such file and if you create one - the level will load, but no changes will be seen)
- -drawcode (it doesn't draw anything at all...)
- -pal (no idea. Maybe it changes the region to pal. But what for?)
- -nosound (the sound still plays)
- -firewire (absolutely no idea...)
- -nocd (maybe it disables the CD requirement for the game)
There's many unused cheats referenced in frontend\lang\ files. I'd say there's much more unused cheats, than actually used ones. Here's the list:

It's unclear if these functions are still in the game or not. Working cheats in frontend\fe_real.txt call function "DoUnlockable" with the value, for example "7" is for Grey Hulk unlock. There are 50 values in use and values from 8 to 32 are used for the cutscene viewer. I tried to create my own cheat pages and buttons with values from 50 to 120 and it was a success, but sadly nothing happens withing the game after enabling cheats with these values. These cheats might be either protected by something, or just completely removed, but at least now it's clear, that the game could have much more interesting possibilies.
