Hmmm...
To do:
Search both the complete game and prototype to find if content shown in the game's official site, like debug features and enemies, are still present (like the ones found). Also, check the PC port as it might have a few differences, like the images in the credits.
And you were just a scroll away from being fired too...
Oh dear, I do believe I have the vapors.
This page contains content that is not safe for work or other locations with the potential for personal embarrassment.
Such as: Naked model of Sera

Mega Man Legends 2 (sort of) picks up where the first game left off, delivering more action, more digging, more unanswered questions, and a cliffhanger that will never, ever be resolved.

Notes

Unused Areas

The game has two unused areas that appear to have been used for debugging.

Debug Room

The first area is a large grassland populated with a giant Roll doing her animation of fixing the Parabola Gun, a big Tron with changing face expressions, a Servbot lying near Tron, a naked Sera that moves her eyes, an invincible Amistal Reaverbot that doesn't release miniatures, four squares in the floor that inflict the freeze, burn, paralyzed and energy leak status when stepped upon, an incomplete building, the barrier from Calinca Ruins, and two invisible ramps between Roll and Tron, noticeable by the different floor. Pressing the Left and Right directional buttons on joystick 2 changes Sera's motions, some being the same as Roll's in the opening scene.

This debug room can be accessed with the GameShark code below. Just boot up the game and start a new game.

30078FC5 0000
(US) GameShark Codeː
30078D1C 0000
30078D1D 0000

Sulphur-Bottom Junk Shop

The second area is a modified version of Sulphur-Bottom's Junk Shop. It is missing some content, like the device hanging on a rope. Some parts of the room have different colors, the conveyor belt and the panel in the wall are animated, and it has a 3-wheeled car in the middle of the room. When using the code to enter, the best way to reach the junk shop is to use the air walker code as well. Hit X as soon as it loads, and rotate slightly to the right. Then jump forward and air walk again when you see the room. Then jump and walk up to it. Alternatively, set MegaMan's position in the map to X 522B (21035), Y 0, and Z FE40 (-448).

Alternate Used
Welcome to mah Junk Shop! Today's special offer is... parts from a broken car! Sorry, the car parts are sold out, except for the motor hanging there.

Unused Playable Characters

Hmmm...
To do:
Check if they work on the PSP version, which appears to lack the files from other playable characters.
Bon Bonne

With the use of codes, it's possible to change MegaMan Volnutt's appearance to that of the characters Roll, Tron, Bon, Glyde, Gatz, and Matilda, as well as MegaMan wearing an apron. The reason for this is explained on the game's Japanese site, which states that some characters were originally planned early on to be playable (specifically mentioning the first five above, by name) in certain events, but the plan was scrapped because the gameplay and motion data were already tailored for MegaMan, making all of them act like him, and changing it would inconveniently take more time in the game's development.

Unused Graphics

MegaMan vs. giant Inmii?


MegaMan's textures have a hidden image of the mobile suit MA-04X Zakrello from the Gundam anime series talking with an unknown character (which is possibly RX-78-2 Gundam combined with B part of G-Fighter, appearing in an iconic scene together with Zakrello, with the beam rifle on its right and the shield on its left, after messing with the palette). The mobile suit says "Leftover space. Hmm... What should I do." "Why not draw something?" is the unknown character's response.

Roll is now building mobile ride suit armors.


Roll's main texture contain a hidden image of the mobile suit RGM-79 GM from the Gundam series.

Barrell is the pilot?


Like MegaMan and Roll, Barrell has a mobile suit figure hidden in his textures, this one being MSM-04 Acguy. The Japanese text says "bibibibibi" (Japanese onomatopoeia for the sound of current pulsing between the mobile suit's two poles).

Chef Man's secret recipe


The faces of MegaMan with apron from the opening scene contain the text 空き地 ("vacant").

Why I could not be a playable character?


Glyde's playable version has a crying face.

All of them are cardboard cutouts? No way!


Unused version of the 2D reporters from the opening scene, possibly meant for when Matilda causes a ruckus, one of them saying ウソ ("No way!"). All 2D reporters disappear after the Kattelox reporter reveals that Matilda is not a real reporter.

It's a microphone, not someone named Mike.


Matilda's textures contain the word マイク (mike) near her microphone, indicating its purpose.

MML2 Matilda Calbania.png


Matilda's faces from Calbania Island have a "(0.20)" note under them. Bluecher does not appear in this part.

Now that the storm ended, we finally got some light here!


Gatz's faces from Forbidden Island have a small doodle that appears to have the kanji 光 ("light").

What? Is there something on my face?


The face in Joe's main texture has text on it in the Abandoned Mine. The text reads "つかってないカオ" ("tsukattenai kao") which translates to "unused face" (literally, "face that is not being used").

Geetz in the form of nano-machines cheering for Sera?


Mini people under Sera's faces from the scene Geetz takes control of the Sulphur-Bottom.

Carbons, I love all of you! Let me demonstrate it by resetting everyone!!


Sera with heart eyes, which is uncommon for her. The face was shown as a joke on the game's official site.

glasses


Geetz wearing glasses. He wore glasses on his concept art.

Aki


The Guildmaster's texture has the text あき ("free space").

Around and around


The Guildmaster with his eyes spinning.

Kekeh!


HUD textures contain a hidden doodle of a Birdbot.


They appear in blue, yellow, red, and drill?


The texture from the large refractors have the two drills found in the Shala-Kun Ruins in The Misadventures of Tron Bonne.

A wild Slime appeared!


Fingerii's texture contain a small picture of a Slime from the Dragon Quest series.

ブ


The blank space in Shubafun's texture contain the message "ブランク 永井です 「チバレイ」で今..?" (roughly "Blank I'm in Nagai now with 'Chibarei'..?").

Cacti speak Japanese.
...But what does it mean?
This game has text or audio that needs to be translated. If you are fluent with this language, please read our translation guidelines and then submit a translation!
Notes: "yomikomi" below. And a check in the ones above?
MML2 Saul Kada sand.png


Text in the sand from Saul Kada Island: アニメ用 ("for animation"), ヨミコミ元 (?), and アニメナシ ("no animation").

SATO


Sera's second form contain the word "SATO" on the textures from her faces. Like The Misadventures of Tron Bonne, this probably refers to Satoh Fuminori, one of the persons that worked on the game's textures.

X


This small texture from Saul Kada Island has a big X.

5380


This texture from the Gemeinschaft and three textures from the Sulphur-Bottom have a small "5380 C0LB" (or COLB), "ST3D 20B", "ST3D 30B", and "ST3D 50B" note on them. The first part matches their map ID, the Gemeinschaft being on ST 53 and the Sulphur-Bottom on ST 3D (they also appear in other maps, this suggesting that 3D is the origin). The purpose of the other symbols in the Gemeinschaft are unknown, but the other symbols in the Sulphur-Bottom match their positions, being the 2nd, 3rd and 5th texture from the map's file, the 0 supposedly being switched?

map 24 texture 4 and map 25 texture 4


The Manda Island maps ST 24 and 25 02 have more of them: "2420 C0L7" (or COL7, ditto for the following), "24402540 C0L5", "24502550 C0L5", "2460 C0L7", "2470 C0L7", "2520 C0LA", "2530C0LA", "2570 C0L6". Likewise, the first and second digits are the ST, and the third and fourth digits the texture's position. The two textures with eight digits appear in both maps and are the 4th and 5th textures. In the one pictured, the 4th texture from map 25, the symbols appear twice, and it has a small difference (missing a piece) on map 24.

Demo Elements

Cacti speak Japanese.
...But what does it mean?
This game has text or audio that needs to be translated. If you are fluent with this language, please read our translation guidelines and then submit a translation!

The files SELECT, G_OVER01 and G_OVER02 have demo elements. G_OVER01 and G_OVER02 respectively have the messages of the full game coming soon and the Rockman DASH (The Best) being released, both appearing in the Episode 1 demo. SELECT has content from the mission selection screen, having three missions. The giant Reaverbot mission was used in the English Trial Version included with The Misadventures of Tron Bonne, but the other two didn't appear in any know demo.

oink oink!


Also, the pig's texture kept the apple and icons used in the Episode 1 demo.

Unused Items

Besides the three card keys found in Glyde's Base, the game has a "Door Card Key 4" that cannot be obtained. Maybe Shu was planned to give her card to MegaMan or drop it during their escape from the base?

The game also contains multiple "blank" items that have no name and description, with one of the Key Items having a Refractor icon. In the Japanese version two of the unused Key Items have the description キーアイテムについての説明がひょうじされます (roughly "A description of the Key Item will be given").

Unused Dialogue

Japanese

Two unused variations of the scene when MegaMan "accidentally" sees Roll in the bathroom.

Voice clip Transcription Translation
キャー!入ってこないでよ!! Yikes! Don't come in!!
キャー!エッチ!出てって!! Yikes! Pervert! Get out!!

A slew of instructions provided by Roll on how to use the controls. Presumably, these would have been heard in the Tutorial mode.

English

Hmmm...
To do:
Finish adding the rest so i can get rid of the youtube video 2=There's a ton of Japanese Audio in the XA, are these from unused lines?

The English version seems to contain all of the unused Japanese tracks, while adding some of its own:

Audio Transcript
Eek! What do you think you're doing!?
It looks like you didn't get all the fires, MegaMan.
I don't think that's where the fire started, MegaMan.
The roof won't last much longer! You've got to stop the Bonnes!
Why did you do that?
File:MML2- It's dangerous on the ground, get up on one of the platforms!
File:MML2- GET LOST
File:MML2 NOOO, MEGAMAN!!!

Various clips include Tron screaming for MegaMan, and some instructions and comments made by Roll.

Unused Text

If the world map is accessed before the time it's supposed to be or during Nino Island's defense, the current objective is shown as "WARNING: The Flutter cannot be entered!".

The newspaper that Roll can subscribe has an entry that goes unused as it changes after Joe's rescue, but the Flutter's repairs will never be completed before accessing Forbidden Island:
"Von Bluecher's Flying Ship Attacked!
Sulphur-Bottom attacked by an unidentified object in skies over Forbidden Island
Authorities fear for safety of passengers
"

Crash Handler

System error

It's possible to make a crash handler screen appear by causing an error in the debug room with a cheat device. You could also crash the game by enabling a cheat code to moon jump far out of land to the point that all land is not visible and see the surface start to flicker; at that point, keep going until you see the handler. The second controller shows additional values.

Regional Differences

Hmmm...
To do:
Compare the credits themes and title screens and the mayor's house.

The ending credits of the Japanese PlayStation version shows ten fan illustrations that were removed overseas. The Japanese ending theme "Naite ii Yo" by "Fumina Hara" was changed to a different track overseas.

漢検

In the Japanese PS1 and PC versions, the mayor's house in Pokte Village is a Kanken (漢検), having the real life Kanken symbol in three parts of the house and in the walls, and the three women inside give Kanken questions with two to four choices. In English, the Kanken symbols were replaced by a question mark, the symbols in the walls were removed, and the women's questions are a trivia quiz, all having four choices.
The PSP version adopted the English changes, the Kanken symbols being replaced by different content (the bigger one being their symbol and the one above the board resembling a diploma or certificate) and removed from the walls, the questions became a trivia quiz, and all questions have four options. Except for the language and their positions, a few of the questions are identical to the English version.

In the Japanese version, donating 100 zenny (the minimum amount) in the cathedral does nothing, with only higher donations having an effect. In the English version it was changed to increase the "karma" value by 4 and Roll's affection by 1.

Revisional Differences

Hmmm...
To do:
Much more, like the PSP's underwater movement speed and the PC port. The PC's staff roll shows different illustrations from the Japanese PS1 version? And check why Jinnan Studio was present and later removed.
  • The original prices for Special Weapon upgrades were reduced in the Japanese exclusive PSP version.
  • The game's speed does not go down in the underwater areas in the PSP version.
  • Jinnan Studio, Kanken and the ten fan illustrations were removed from the staff roll in the PSP version, the latter probably being done to open space for the PSP port staff without making it longer.
