Unused Graphics

Default Unused
Octopod is a word I just noticed that this octopus only has four tentacles

The octopus has three alternate palettes that aren't called anywhere. These palettes are exclusive to the player object; they can't be used by enemy objects. Mysterious.

Used Full
💔 ♡♥💕❤

The hearts that appear after meeting the yellow octopus have four frames of animation, but only three are used.

Another thing that octopuses eat
An unused level obstacle. It's a clam or something. No graphics in the ROM for an open clam, though.
