Two unused icons:
- The first one is for a wounded unit. According to the game manual, this icon is used for a unit that is incapacitated and must be healed. In actual gameplay, a wounded unit has 5HP and is neutral until a player's unit is brought close enough to rescue it, even if healed from a distance.
- The only instance of wounded soldiers are found during Human Campaign Mission #4. Wounded soldiers have their own unique unit (ID# 0x10) with an Archer portrait, but no command lists. When rescued, they become Archers. The only one that is not changed is Lothar who uses his own name and icon, regardless of condition.
- The second one is very basic.
There are some hidden dev/build text (file listings) in DATA.WAR. Entries 393 and 394 in the data file contain what appears to be MS-DOS directory listings.

Attack 0x0B is a fireball. It is located between melee (0x0C) and the Water Elemental's attack (0x0A). It may have been intended for the Daemon or Fire Elemental at some point during development.
Units 0x14, 0x1D and 0x1E appear to be placeholders, but have sufficient data to be used in the game, albeit they cannot do very much.

On a related note, the Keep and Spire have the same command lists as the Human and Orc Town Halls (Peasant, Road & Wall).
