Unused Models

Shun Akiyama

Akiyama's model from Yakuza 6 reappears here. While the character himself goes unused in Like a Dragon, his suit reappears as a DLC outfit for Joon-Gi Han. It's unknown why Akiyama's full model is present.

Judgment Map Models

To do:
Grab screenshots of these.

The map for present-day Kamurocho appears to have been lifted from the earlier side game, Judgment; with areas such as Genda Law Office and Yagami's office both being present in full. While you cannot enter these rooms in normal gameplay; they are fully furnished as they would've been in Judgment itself.

Removed Playable Characters

There is a total of 3 removed characters still present in the game's database. Given that 'Ayaka' was the name used for Saeko in the April Fool's video (still referenced in her textures and for Eri Kamataki), it's possible these are the three characters that appeared in aforementioned video.

The only information left in the files about these characters are their internal names:

- sakaida
- hoshino
- ayaka 

Removed Attack and Resistance Types

Leftovers in the game's database indicate that weapons and equipment could have poison damage and resistance, respectively.

Female Characters

There are no female enemies in the game.

Dummy Characters

Faulty Character Renders

Kiwami Action Characters

Characters without fights

The following characters cannot be fought at any point in the game.

Unused Item Icons

The PS4 demo and initial Asian release version of the game (Japanese, Korean and Chinese) contain render icons for many props and NPC weapons.
This kind of icons is normally used for inventory previews.
