CHICKEN LOVER

One unused item is referenced twice at 0x3FF5788 and 0x3FF4560.

MEGA-ZANTHAR

The item is a reference to the episode Mecha Streisand, the triangle of Zanthar being the item that turned Barbra Streisand into a mecha. The item had its own item box, most likely acting like the Pink-Eye pickup.

A list of objects contains some unused ones as well. At 0x3FF6198:

IntroMayor

The Mayor and her camera appear in the PC version before every race. Santa or the Four-Assed Monkey don't make any appearances.
