Also known as: Saru Puncher (JP)
Pretty much the best title for a game ever.
Located at 0x2C51 is a string that may refer the game's early working title.
Both the European and Japanese (Saru Puncher) versions contain graphics for a menu with the options "GAME START", "DEBUG MODE" and "ANIME". The code to display these options was removed from the final game.
The debug menu can be accessed from the title screen via the Game Genie code 032-C4B-E62.
Options: BGM will play background music. SE will play sound effects. キャラ (Chara) will select a character. アニメ (Animation) will display the selected animation.
Navigation: Use Up/Down to navigate to each option. Use Left/Right to change the numbers for each option. Use A to use selected option. Use B to get back to the start menu.
Use Game Genie code 152-A9F-E6A, then start the game.
Navigation: Use Select to switch between page 1 and page 2. Use A/B to increase/decrease numbers. Use Up/Down to change between stats. Start would return to the last menu if the menu was accessed the correct way.

The current text bank and number will be displayed in the top left box after you changed it at least once.

Use Game Genie code 0C2-C4B-E62 to access some kind of unused scene from the title screen.
This might have been the "Anime" option on the title screen, as this character looks somewhat different in style than other stuff that is used in game.
Navigation: Use A or B to return to the previous menu.
Use Game Genie code 0E9-C9B-91A, then navigate to System → Comm. to access this scene.
Hey, Kenta, how are ya? In monkey boxing, strength is everything! Well, there's nothing left but training, so do your best...
This scene might be an early version of the introduction of the Hero's uncle, as the usual text after the uncle showed up the first time is shown after this scene.
