Bank $00 fragments

Located in the unused space at SNES address $00FC9E-00FEF2 is a fragment from a prototype build. This corresponds to $00FA45-00FC9D in the final build. Within the fragment is a section that is 4 bytes shorter, as it's missing two commands used to skip and disable debugging (noted by the stars below).

Another fragment is located at SNES address $00FEF3-00FEFF, but it's only 13 bytes long and contains no differences from the final build.

Bank $01 fragments

Hmmm...
To do:
This needs more research, preliminary findings below
01FE0D-01FB2B is a fragment of ?
01FE2C-01FE2F is a fragment of 01FE28-01FE2B
01FE30-01FE52 is a fragment of 01FE09-01FE2B
01FE53-01FFFF (unused space)

Other bank fragments

Hmmm...
To do:
Other banks are likely to have fragments as well...
