Unused Music

Two unused songs can be found within the Super Scope Test bank.

Super Scope Test

A completely original song, purpose unknown.

What appears to be an early version of "Mole Patrol" from Super Scope 6.

Unused Jingles

Still, there are several unused jingles scattered about.

Controller Mouse Test

Three unused jingles are present in the Controller/Mouse Test bank.

Super Scope Test

Six unused jingles are present in the Super Scope Test bank.

Unused Sounds

There's quite a few of them, actually.

Controller Mouse Test

Four unused sounds are present in the Controller Test/Mouse bank.

Sound Module Test

Three sound effects that aren't heard anywhere in the Sound Module Test/Burn-In Test.

Super Scope Test

Six unused sounds are present in the Super Scope Test bank.

Unused Voice Sample

Present in the Super Scope Test bank, it says "すみませんね", which means "I'm sorry." The voice may be that of Akito Nakatsuka.

Early Super Mario World Graphics

Much like the SNES Test Program, the ROM contains a handful of early Super Mario World graphics. Only the Small Mario, Bullet Bill, Podoboo, Star, Mushroom, Fire Flower, and OBJTEST sprites are actually used for the Burn-in Test.
