So very stubbly.
This page is rather stubbly and could use some expansion.
Are you a bad enough dude to rescue this article?

In Scribblenauts, you play as a boy named Maxwell who can summon physical objects via a notepad. In addition to the main puzzle mode, the game also features a sandbox mode and a level creator, where you can summon tons of different objects to mess around with.

To do:
Unused music.

Unused Graphics

Merit Icons

Scribblenauts UnusedMeritIcons.png

Eight Merit icons go unused. How they would have been unlocked is anyone's guess.

Female Maxwell

Scribblenauts-Female Maxwell.png

This unused character, who resembles a female Maxwell, can be found in the game's data. Her graphics can also be found in the sequel, Super Scribblenauts. There is no known way to summon her in-game. In Scribblenauts Unlimited, the girl version of evil Maxwell resembles her.

Scrapped Bonus Level Menu

Originally, there was a third option in the Shop menu between the Avatar and Music options that would enable the player to purchase an additional 30 levels with Ollars. The button is invisible but can be seen by tapping the light yellow square on the bottom left, right next to the back button. A blue arrow can be seen, and if the player taps it again, it will glitch up and the menu will scroll very quickly to a blank menu before switching back. If the player taps the button a few more times, the game will freeze. It should be noted that a few other squares (located to the far and bottom right) will freeze the game immediately if touched, likely because the actual buttons and their functions were deleted entirely.

Regional Differences

To do:
Find out if there are any other Konami characters in the game.

In the Japanese version of Scribblenauts, several Konami characters can be summoned via the notepad. They include:

Scrib vic1.pngScrib vic2.pngScrib vic3.png

Vic Viper (Gradius). Maxwell can fly it; tapping anywhere on screen will make the craft drop fireball objects in a trajectory similar to missiles in the Gradius series.
