So very stubbly.
This page is rather stubbly and could use some expansion.

Unused Graphics

An animation of Expresso from Donkey Kong Land.

Killerinstinctgb Nintendo Logo.png

An unused Nintendo logo that is stored in the same compressed block as the Rareware logo. Was likely to be displayed alongside it, but was more than likely scrapped in lieu of the much larger "Nintendo Presents" screen that precedes it. This Nintendo logo would later be used in Donkey Kong Land 2.

Arena Select

Only for 2-players mode (either via Game Boy link or in SGB mode with second controller), at versus screen, hold Up or Down and press one of the non D-Pad buttons to play a particular arena rather than the arena assigned to the current opponent. A full list of combinations are in the table below. Note, the Eyedol arena (index 2) is inaccessible with this cheat and just skipped in code. Also note, the Secret Arena is a special 10th hidden arena for 2-player mode and can be accessed only via this cheat.
