Early placeholder animation of Wally in the torture chamber diorama.
Animated inventory items have 5 frames, but only 4 are shown in-game. The unused item frames:
|Fireflies||Lice||Maggots||Insurance money||Gold tooth|
Animation from the demo, like Guybrush crashing through a door after firing the cannon and Wally's tears (type actor 2 anim 30 in the ScummVM debugger near Wally), were also left inside the game's files.
|(Examine)||"It's a big, heavy-looking cast-iron cooking pot."|
|(Use)||"I don't think that would help."|
|(Eat)||"We all need more iron in our diet, but not like this."|
This was abandoned as a usable item. In the final version of the game, Guybrush automatically drags it down to the beach in a cutscene.
Type object 940 pickup in the ScummVM debugger outside the Goodsoup Hotel to have this in your inventory.
There are unused guest-room-mints which were intended for the skeleton in the Goodsoup Hotel guest room.
Type object 1047 state 1 in the ScummVM debugger while in the guest room and its graphic will appear in the skeleton's hand.
Audio for the unused object, /GRNZ342/mints.
|GRGT343.IMX||(Examine) "They must leave a mint on his pillow every night."|
|GRGT344.IMX||"Good thing, too or he'd really stink by now."|
|GRGT345.IMX||"It's an enormous pile of grog-o-mints, courtesy of this establishment."|
|GRGT346.IMX||(Pick Up/Taste) "The bed slammed up before I could reach them."|
|GRGT347.IMX||"I don't make a habit of eating things found next to corpses."|
There's an unused stage-floorboard-anim-object object in the Puerto Pollo Theater Stage area. While this is technically seen in the cutscene where a cannon ball lands on the floorboard, it was abandoned as an interact-able background object. In-game, the floor is back to normal after the show.
Other unused objects which may have been associated with this are: /SGNZ487/missing floorboard to /SGNZ491/.
Unused graphic objects: stage-missing-plank-1 to 6.
Audio for the unused object, /SGNZ483/missing floorboard.
|SGGT484.IMX||(Examine) "It's a hole where there used to be a floorboard."|
|SGGT485.IMX||(Pick Up) "There's nothing there to pick up."|
|SGGT486.IMX||(Talk) "Hello down there!"|
Partially Unused Audio
This line is heard in-game with a pitch effect after using the helium balloons. Here's what it actually sounds like:
|LGGT002.IMX||"That's made my voice sound funny."|
Goodsoup Hotel 1st Floor
After Guybrush downs the spiked drink, the following lines are heard in-game with a distortion effect. This is what they actually sound like:
|HBGT378.IMX||"In fact, I..."|
|HBGT379.IMX||"...in fact I feel..."|
Leftover development text found in the test room.
"MONKEY ISLAND 3, UNDER DEVELOPMENT"
Objects with nothing but a name.
RoD Snow Monkey
There are two unused objects in the Snow Monkey diorama area which suggest that there were supposed to be more pirates on the ride: pirate-sledders-object (left square) and pirate-skier-object (right square). Their intended locations can be seen in red. It's possible it was meant for an earlier version of the background.
When the "The Monkeys are listening..." screen appears, type script 2004 run and then script 2005 run in the ScummVM debugger and an unused subtitle will quickly play. Other language versions of the game will display a translated version of this subtitle by normal means.
|This needs some investigation.|
Discuss ideas and findings on the talk page.
On Rottingham's Ship, script 2005 will crash the game if you try to run it.

Voodoo Lady's Candles
There is a short, unused animation of the candles in the Voodoo Lady's room getting blown to the side by wind.
To see this, have the Voodoo Lady on-screen and type script 2011 run in the ScummVM debugger.
- The bananas on The Sea Cucumber are completely separate objects from the background image and can be removed with state hacking.
- Most candles in-game, possibly due to sharing the same graphic, have various animations of getting blown by the wind as well as becoming completely extinguished.
- The image for the bed of hay in LeChimp's quarters is named lc-qurtr-yeti-fur.
The song "A pirate I was meant to be" is not present in most if not all non-English versions, probably because it was too difficult to translate all the rhymes.
