|File Name||Track||Sound.Wz Data||Notes|
|Elfwood||Bgm03/Elfwood||Acoustic guitar version of WhenTheMorningComes, the BGM in Ellinia. According to some Korean pages, it was originally the BGM of the Ellinia Magic Library where Magicians went to job advance. According to Southperry.net user PirateIzzy, it was Maple Island BGM in JMS (Japanese Maplestory) before Big Bang.|
|Hana||BgmJP/Hana||Alternate version of the Yume background music used in Showa Town with a different, cheerier sounding intro.|
|WCSelect||BgmUI/WCSelect||Used in the world and character select screen from early beta, as evidenced in this video.|
|WhereTheBarlogFrom||Bgm01/WhereTheBarlogFrom||An enigmatic track that sounds similar to Nightmare, the BGM in Perion. According to some Korean pages, it was originally the BGM of Perion Warriors Sanctuary, where Warriors went to job advance. Notably, that particular job instructor is named Dances With 'Balrog'.|
There's a lot more.
These NPCs exist in the data of GMS, but have yet to make an an appearance outside of the Japanese version where they originated.
Kerning City Internet Cafe
There's maps, as well weapons and "PC" versions of enemies exclusive to this area, get the data for them and incorporate them into the page.
A feature that was exclusive to some Asian versions of the game. If you were playing at a PC Room that had a deal with Nexon, you got access some training maps that were godly in the early days of the game, as well alternate versions of weapons that were much stronger and with lower level requirements than their regularly obtainable counterparts. GMS never officially released this and likely never will considering how antiquated it is post Big Bang, but some of it still exists in the data.
Land Of Divination
The NPCs of this years Lunar New Year "Land Of Divination" event still exist in the files despite being unused after the event's end in February.
This guy was apparently an exit for an unknown jump quest.
Characters from the TaiwanMS and ChinaMS exclusive "China" region.
Yuyuan PVP Ranking Board
Yuyuan Makeup Lady
Finish this content, many more of these TMS NPCs are in the files.
Removed Map Data
Beta Free Markets
During the GMS Beta, certain towns had a Free Market area where players could trade. However when the game officially released these areas were removed, and when the Free Market returned it was condensed into a single set of universal areas that could be accessed from any town, rather than having town specific ones. The original entrance maps are pretty much gone, but the graphics of the rooms were recycled.
In the Korean servers, there was an event area dedicated to the Coca-Cola® company, likely under sponsorship, in an event called CokePLAY. The area never has and most likely never will appear in GMS, but parts of it exist in the data, most notably in monsters and NPCs. There is no map data whatsoever in GMS aside from a background effect and strings referencing the map titles, which are fully localized.

Look for pieces of the first login screen.
These graphics are from the first version of the UI, which was used in the Korean beta and shortly after release, as well as from the first few Japanese versions. Nexon apparently forgot about Omok and Match Cards when they decided to scrap this UI, and so they use this insanely old style of graphics even today.
Was likely never used. Unknown what purpose it would have served.
A movement item buttons for the item movement menu.
Buttons that cancel movement of items.
Close buttons from menus and such.
Cool looking buttons.
A minigame table.
Appears to be a tournament roster.
A big ol' notice.
This used to be displayed in the corner during the GMS beta.
Skill Name Graphics
Graphics for a scrapped feature where using a skill would show the name of it above your character. They only exist for up to 2nd job skills, so they were likely removed when the UI was redone, but despite this they've been in the GMS data since launch. Example in-game.
Japanese New Years Content
A graphic showing a Torii, presumably an accidental copy over from Japanese Maplestory. The file name indicates it was from a New Years event, this one being from 2014.
Another Torii graphic, this time for 2015. Compared to the 2014 image, it has some additional detail and does not have any dithering.
A third New Years graphic from Japanese Maplestory, depicting a Kadomatsu.
Nexon Game Card Promotion
Graphics from a promotion for the launch of the Nexon Game Cards in various stores.
A graphic of a a Rite Aid storefront with an animated "SALE" sign. It's also the only storefront to feature any animation. It once resided in Amoria with it's representative, Alex The Rite Aid Guy.
A graphic of a Duane Reade storefront, which once resided in New Leaf City with it's representative, Kate The Duane Reade Girl.
A graphic depicting a CVS Pharmacy storefront, with grass on top? Odd. Once resided in Amoria with it's representative, Nicholas The CVS Guy.
A graphic depicting a boxy Best Buy storefront. Once went with it's representative, Jill The Best Buy Girl.
A graphic depicting a boxy little 7-Eleven storefront, even with a little vending machine to the side. It once resided in Henesys with it's representative, Barry the 7-Eleven Guy.
A graphic depicting a small little Target storefront with a large open front design. It once resided in Henesys with it's representative, Andy The Target Guy.
Crudely drawn graphics representing portals for use in Nexon's map editor.
"Caffe Maple" (appears to be) a cross promotion event with the Korean Caffe Bene chain. Despite being KMS exclusive, some of the files found their way to GMS.
A loading graphic presumably.
The logo for the event
A puzzle of a.... viking pelican?
Posters of various anniversaries of Maplestory's existence.
A poster for Maplestory's 4th Anniversary. It's also in Korean, so most likely wasn't even used in GMS during the 4th Anniversary.
A poster for Maplestory's 5th Anniversary, it's also in Korean.
A poster for Maplestory's 6th Anniversary.
A poster for Maplestory's 7th Anniversary, also in Korean.
A poster for Maplestory's 8th Anniversary. The main text is English but there's the "MapleStyle" thing in the corner is in Korean, so I don't know.
A poster for Maplestory's 9th Anniversary, in Korean again.
A poster for Maplestory's 10th Anniversary, once again language confused like the 8th Anniversary poster.
A poster for Maplestory's 11th Anniversary, in Korean as well.
A poster for Maplestory's 10th Anniversary
