Red Dragon on the Emerald Isle should has his name set as Morcarack, but due to a bug it's swapped with simply "Red Dragon".


The Megadragon in the Dragon Caves in the Land of the Giants was going to have fortified statistics and a special animation, however probably due to a bug this features were cancelled. In the game files one can find his full animation, that was later reused for all of the dragons in Might and Magic VIII: Day of the Destroyer.

Super Vampire

Used to be a resident of the Wine Cellar in Tatalia in M&M7 1.0. Killing him was a quest objective, but somehow it was broken and mission was impossible to accomplish. Thus he was removed from the game in later patches. He had the same stats as Elder Vampire, except for his weaker mind immunity - average Vampire is immune to mind spells, while Supervampire has only 30 points of immunity. He was also probably an owner of Vampire's Cape that is described below, but it never found it's way to the final release.

Small Trolls

The game files contains fully animated smaller version of a Troll. It's statistics are not present in monsters.txt and thus it can't be placed on a map, but they were found in a Dwarven Barrows in the March 1999 prototype of Might and Magic VII.

There were plans to add a bit of life to the cities by placing there cats, dogs, small rats and chickens, they even have full animations of walking in all directions and dying.

Unused Cinematics & Locations


Eofol Tunnel Entrances

Most of the tunnels connected to Eofol / Thunderfist don't have any entrance cutscene (in the release version of the game). The ones that have use the Thunderfist Mountain cutscene.

Temple of the Light

Due to restrictions of the game mechanics it wasn't possible to add transition screen to a dungeon with entrance inside house or institution - and because Temple of the Light is inside Celeste Temple, it lacks this beautiful cinematic.

The Temple of the Light is one of the most beautiful and serene places in the world.  Any follower of the Light can feel their troubles slipping away as they walk in these hallowed halls.

Temple of the Dark

The same as above applies to the Temple of the Dark.

The Temple of the Dark is still in use by the forces of evil.  Sacrifices are held monthly, and foul rites are performed routinely on the front steps.

Breeding Zone

Not sure why it wasn't used, Walls of Mist cinematic in Celeste works just fine.

Traitors and prisoners of war are frequently thrown in this horrible pit as object lessons in cruelty.  All Necromancers must also enter the pit and escape before they can complete their apprenticeships.

Mount Nighon

Warlock Stables

There're no stables at Nighon therefore it is unused.

M&M7 icons npc776.png

Warlock Leader's Throne Room

Warlocks were going to play much bigger role than we've seen in a final release. In 2Devents.txt one can find a name of dead and burried Warlock Castle:

Castle Deadwood

Warlock Bank

M&M7 icons npc927.png

Warlock Alchemist

M&M7 icons npc771.png

Warlock Town Hall

According to videos names, Necromancers' Town Hall was primarily used for Nighon, but videos were swapped when developers decided that Nighon will be a smaller city. There is also unused Warlock clerks voice - game uses Necromancers clerk voice.

Houses Cinematics

Human Poor House 3

Dwarven Rich House 2

Armsmaster House

His portrait was used for a human banker.

Unused Case of Soul Jars M&M8 icon item352.png Alternatively coloured Case of Soul Jars, apparently not present in-game. Looks like blue version was going to be placed in Castle Gloaming and green in Thunderfist Mountain.
Unused spell book M&M7 icons item194.png
Unused long dagger artifact of Elf/Human slaying M&M7 icons item222.png Every type of weapon in the game has at least one powerful artifact. Except for a long dagger, so this is probably the lacking artifact. Placeholder entries in Items.txt tells that it was going to be "of Elf/Human slaying".
Another unused rose M&M8 icon item360.png
Unused Ore M&M icon item359.png M&M8 sprite obj359.png

Dagger with Broken Palette

This dagger with broken colours was left for some reason among adventure map graphics of items:

M&M7 Sprites OBJ015.png

Vampire's Cape

Looks like it belongs to a Super Vampire from Wine Cellar, but it doesn't appear in the in 1.0 version of the game nor in the official patches. Internally it's set as "of the Moon" enchantment, thus it would give + 10 to Intellect and Luck.

M&M7 VampireCloak.png

Unused Quests

Events.lod contains these peculiar strings:

Killed specific monster (Armsmaster GM quest) - important for Bob
Completed fountain quest (Water Magic GM) - important for Bob

Both grandmaster teachers don't require finishing these quests to teach heroes new skills. However it looks like the first mission was scrapped on late stages of development, because Armsmaster Grandmaster has unused unique cinematic of his house and in the Dragon Caves there is a special Megadragon that could fulfil requirement of being "specific monster".

Developer Dungeon

Like in the preceding and the following games, there is a hidden dungeon that resembles the offices of New World Computing, the studio behind the game, populated by characters referencing the development team.

To get there, go to the Shoals, and look for a sunken pirate ship in the middle-right side of the map. Behind some rocks at the bottom of the ship is a chest with a Temple in a Bottle item inside. Use this item to get warped to The Strange Temple.

To do:
Add information on any interesting sights there.

Right image is taken from 15.IV 1999 IGN preview, but it's also true for a vanilla 1.0 version.[1] This was altered in patch 1.1.
