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:
A bevy of unused and cut content, including models, cutscenes, and developer's tools.

Little King's Story is an action-adventure lifesim RTS-RPG hybrid brimming with personality, created as a passion project by a collaboration of developers and companies including Yoshiro Kimura and Yasuhiro Wada.

Unused Audio


The wake up music isn't technically unused, but only a few notes play in-game. Slightly more of the track plays in the PC version.


Appears to have been intended for an alarm clock.


Resembles other music from Mr. M.



Amecomi translates as "American Comic". This music is from one of the channels that appears in TV Dinnah's cutscene, featuring a superhero saying "Love and Peace". This channel has a full looping track in the game's files, as with the other channels in the cutscene, so was likely intended for the TV Dinnah battle.


From another channel in TV Dinnah's cutscene, specifically the one where a man says "Because I love you!" Likely intended for a similar purpose as M22_Amecomi.


Possibly an unused castle music, which is heard in some unused events.


Possibly an unused Ripe Kingdom theme.


From an unused cutscene where Corobo is playing in his house and gets lost in a forest after chasing the rats.



Similar to M45, and seems like it would be used when talking with a princess.


A strange sound.


Unused Onii sound.


An Onii saying something like "Yoshi".



An ominous sound.


Unused Text

Several letters from Omelet exist, which hint at a side-plot about his relationship with Shizuka. Despite being unused, these are still referenced by the Alpokian Eggan:

After much deliberation, 
I decided to write this
letter. Shizuka, how are
you? If you can fathom
his mysterious charm,
I will present you with
a golden egg... I think.
-Indecisive Omelet.
After much deliberation,
I decided to write this
letter. Last night, I saw
your dog John trying to
dig up my golden egg.
I'm not mad, because it's
a gift for you, Shizuka.
-Indecisive Omelet.

Note: an unused event is related to these letters, where we can see Shizuka's dog, John, digging something up in the Worrywart Kingdom.

A letter from God saying that Corobo and Him are the same, and they should have fun together until they grow old. This was likely removed to make the ending chapter more mysterious and keep the twist hidden from the player. However, it is also possible that this was intended for a scrapped post-game.

To the king,
You are me.
I thought I was the
only me.
Let's play together until
we turn into old men!

A letter from Long Sauvage after his defeat, stating that he has kidnapped hikers:
