Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 (Genesis)
Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 is back and buggier than ever.
This handler is still present, thankfully. This game definitely needs one.
Other error handler text:

The sound test from Mortal Kombat 3 is still present. Press A, C, Up, B, Up, B, A, Down on the main menu to access it.
Chameleon was planned for the console ports of Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3, but due to cartridge constraints he remains unfinished, to access him use Pro Action Replay code FF0127:19 (note: the code can crash the game)
Other than having his own life bar and win text, he has no combos other than some simple two-hit jump-ins, no special moves or fatalities, though he borrows Scorpion's Stage Fatality and Friendship, his bio screen and ending are damaged and his Battle Plan portrait is Kano's. In certain actions, such as performing one of the one-button finishers cheats, he turns into Rain.
Chameleon would make his debut in Mortal Kombat Trilogy (except in the Nintendo 64 version).
Unused Bio Screens
Use the PAR Code FF021F:XX to see these screens in the demo mode. XX is the character ID. Alternatively, use the Bio Screen option in the same menu as the sound test above.
Smoke's bio hasn't been changed from Mortal Kombat 3. Human Smoke and Classic Sub-Zero's bios are just placeholders, and Chameleon's bio is glitched (he doesn't have a bio name like the other characters).
The "-MOTARO-" text (0x59226) from Mortal Kombat 3 is still present, though there's still no Motaro bio. Shao Kahn's bio is damaged, and it crashes the game.
Animalities were removed from the Genesis port of Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3. However, whoever was responsible for removing them was probably easily distracted, because they accidentally left in Kabal's Animality's input command. If you try and perform an Animality with Kabal, he loses his head and some very strange things can happen.
Along with some new text, most of the unused text from the previous Genesis port is still present, still unused.
A build date and password (which unlocks the Cheats, Secrets, and Killer Codes menus) are found at 0x05D834:
VERSION: AUGUST 4TH 10:30PM PASSWORD: ADALARCUL
The last line from the game's ending is never actually seen in-game. This doesn't appear in the arcade version either. Ending text is at 0x057174:
SHAO KAHN IS NO MORE YOU ARE THE ULTIMATE MK3 CHAMPION YOU DONT SUCK
Game Info Text

This is the last chunk of Kombat Kode text in the ROM. They're still not implemented.
Sheeva's health bar name (0x052528) and win text (0x055074) can be found in the ROM. Sheeva was cut from this port, this is what remains from her.
Like Sheeva, Chameleon's health bar name and win text can be found in the ROM (0x5258C and 0x5510E).
The Endurance Mode from Mortal Kombat 3 was removed, but inside the ROM you can still find the words "Endurance Mode" twice (at 0x525A8 and 0x65774).
Still unused and located at 0x584AE are the following names:
MIKE, LISA, PRUDENCE, JOYCIE, FELICITY
This can be found at 0x5514E and is still unused.
