Disabled on the list of animations found in the Izzy Test is the Death animation seen in-game. To view it, poke memory address FFFE7F with the value 17. Make sure to disable the code before leaving this screen, or else the game will crash.

Unused Sound

Hmmm...
To do:
Record sound and add code.

Disabled on the list of sounds found in the Sound Test is a strange warp sound.
