Plenty more, including unused death quotes, unused items, and many more unused graphics.
Quest for Glory: Shadows of Darkness is darker than the previous three games. However, thanks to Sierra forcing the game out for the holidays, it also suffered from more bugs than the previous three combined. It was mostly patched up for the CD release, at least.
Most of the debug material is intact, but only in the floppy version. Extract 18.scr and 18.hep  out of the game, then put them in the same directory as the game's executable. Upon starting the game, the player will be greeted with a prompt asking them which level they want to go. Warping to a point in the game besides the title screen will make your character a Fighter with 200 on all stats.
Then, after jumping into the game, the following (working) controls will be available:
|Alt + A||Show cast (info about all on-screen objects).|
|Alt + B||Change amount of money.|
|Alt + C||Learn a new spell.|
|Alt + E||Show ego information & free memory.|
|Alt + G||Set/Clear flag.|
|Alt + H||Set hour of the day.|
|Alt + I||Get item.|
|Alt + K||Set one of the ego's skills.|
|Alt + M||Show free memory.|
|Alt + R||Show room info.|
|Alt + S||Shift user alterego.|
|Alt + T||Teleport.|
|Alt + U||Return user control.|
|Alt + X||Set all the ego's skills.|
|Alt + Left Mouse Button||Instant movement/placement.|
|Ctrl + L||QA Logger.|
|Ctrl + S||Play sound.|
|Shift + /||Help for the debug mode.|
Sound cue 472 contains a tune intended for the gypsy camp. Composer Aubrey Hodges said it would have been for the wolves' attack or the burning.
Message file 810 mentions two enemies that don't appear in the final game - Tentitite and Nastimost. These appear to be the only mentions of them in the code.
Room 510 (Borgov Crypt) contains a cut enemy called Crypt Wraith. It can actually be revealed and fought with (by meddling with the left bottom sarcophagus) via a fan patch, but the combat's background is borrowed from the similar enemy Castle Wraith.
