Main Menu

File 7, which contains the title screen assets, also has a leftover "Free Play" graphic from the game's original arcade release.


There is also a graphic for a "Check" button, which is related to a debug function that has since been removed.

Placeholder Character

Found many times within the game's filesystem is a placeholder character which solely consists of sprites from the character HAMANOV [1]‍ '​s 5P palette, as seen in the new song The tyro's reverie, but marked with an X. The first instance can be found in File 268.


Placeholder Portraits

File 45 contains a placeholder portrait featuring a grayed out version of Rave girl [7], the character of the song Ending theme of pop'n music 6.


There are also two more placeholder portraits found at Files 56 and 57, which are simply the portraits of the character PEPPER [6] (who is unavailable in this game), but labeled as "ダミ" (Dummy).
