At the player number selection menu, hold at least one B on any controller along with at least one Down on any controller, then press Start once. Do not hold Start for too long, or you'll skip the warp menu.

You can also instantly clear any room by holding at least one A on any controller along with at least one Select on any controller before entering the room. Continue holding the buttons until the room completely scrolls into view. If done correctly, no enemies will appear, and you can collect items or proceed to another room through any of the available exits.

Unused Items

Hmmm...
To do:
Find a way to plant these items in-game.

This could either be the smart-bomb, another deleted item, or just a dummy.
