The Super Nintendo port of the original Genesis Donald in Maui Mallard.

Just as he is about to quit his job and spend the rest of his life as a silly and simple duck in sailor clothes, the detective who is also a ninja Maui Mallard decides to do one last mission: search and find the missing idol statue of Shabuhm Shabuhm before the island it protects explodes. But that won't be easy since everyone in the island wants him dead for whatever reason...

Debug Menu

At one time, Debug was available as the fourth option on the title screen. However, it was disabled, and now cheat codes are required to access the debug menu.

On the title screen, move the current selection to the invisible fourth option, and press Start.

Same directions as above, but after moving to the 4th selection, disable the code before pressing Start.

New Passwords

Here's some newly discovered passwords for special effects:

  • PLBVRQ
    • Infinite health - the counter will reach 0, but can still take damage from enemies.
  • FXFQHD
    • Press Select + Y + A to instantly advance to the next stage.

Unknown Passwords

Level Passwords

  • A A A - Shabuhm Temple

This level password was "removed" and made impossible to enter. Instead, use these Pro Action Replay codes and enter BBBBBB as the password.

00CDB842 00CDB942 00CDBA42 00CDBB42 00CDBC42 00CDBD42

According to the options menu, this password is supposed to take you to "Shabuhm Temple", which seems to be placed after the final level, Mojo Stronghold. Unfortunately, there doesn't seem to be any remains of this level, so the game sends you to a broken version of Test of Duckhood Act 1 instead.

Special Effect Passwords

The effects of the following passwords, if any, are currently unknown:

  • BTBMPH
    • Sets bit 20 in 7E1F55.
  • DCVQMQ
    • Sets bit 10 in 7E1F55.
  • TGVDRH
    • Sets bit 08 in 7E1F55.

Regional Differences

The game was released under the Maui Mallard in Cold Shadow title in North America, where Disney was concerned the Donald Duck name would hurt its commercial viability.[1] The European and Japanese versions thus use a different title screen to the one used in the US:

  1. "Disney's marketing dept. was kind of weird sometimes.. It was supposed to be Donald Duck as Maui Mallard, and after the game was ready to be shipped they suddenly started saying "Donald Duck isn't hip in the U.S.".. We need to change the title.. And they came up with Cold Shadow, and I was really disappointed in that."—Patrick J. Collins, "Remaking an Icon, the true story of Maui Mallard and Cold Shadow", 1UP
