Sources[edit]

I think we add sources these beta elementsKnife (talk)

Good news everyone, I found a site with tons of images of Mario Beta Elements, among others. -- Sir Grodus

Since all the images on the page seem to be kind of, crowded together maybe a gallery should be made for them or something. -- Sir Grodus

Good idea. Paper Jorge

Super Mario RPG[edit]

I thought it's save space putting all Unused Enemies together instead of individual. Two new ones discovered, Juju and Chompweed. Chompweed was in the game, but as an obsticle and the game data shows it was going to be a enemy you fight.
The preceding unsigned comment was added by Rouge2 (talk).

Well, putting them all on one image makes the image smaller on the page Mr. Guy the GuyPickle.png Talk!E

That's where clicking on it works, I got some real good finds in it.

I recently discovered a Battle Stage not used in the game, but in the data.

Super Mario Sunshine[edit]

Is there really a different human girl or is someone getting Peach confused? If there is a girl, could someone please provide a picture or a link?--Aipom_Banana_2.gif Aipom 424.png--

There was a link to a video once. Someone removed it? Anyway it's not Peach. Paper Jorge

Is there any chance you could find it for me? I'm curious about what she looked like or if she was doing anything important.--Aipom_Banana_2.gif Aipom 424.png--

Nothing important she was just looking at Mario. But it's a video, so you need a good computer to see it. Paper Jorge

No one removed it. It's still there. Click where it says "Source". Paper Jorge

Wow! That was very missable! Thank you.--Aipom_Banana_2.gif Aipom 424.png--

You're welcome :p. Paper Jorge

Donkey Kong Beta Elements[edit]

Inspired by this page I decided to create a Donkey Kong Beta Elements page, check it out if you want[1]... and yes this is a small cry for attention. -- Sir Grodus

??? and the Laser Suit[edit]

According to the Super Mario World section of the article, there's a hidden level in Donut Plains called "???" and with it comes an item known as the "Laser Suit". It isn't that I don't believe that or anything, but its source is a broken link (probably just a mistake). It also sounds more like a game secret than a Beta Element, but I suppose I don't know exactly what the article means by "hidden level"... I suppose it could be a beta/test level featuring an unused item... I sort of want to know if it's legit, and, if so, get a good link to the source. --YellowYoshi398 21:54, 19 January 2007 (EST)

Well, it's definately not a secret in the final version of the game. I was wondering about this too. It seems pretty out there. -- Son of Suns

Beta Delfino pictures[edit]

I found tons of pictures of "Beta Delfino" but I can't add them. (Don't know why). Google Super mario beta images to find them. Guy who is NOT signing his comment on purpose. 14:47, 16 February 2007 (EST)

Is the flying screenshot actually beta?[edit]

I know for a fact that in multiplayer, everybody can fly. Klaus Kratchet

For which game?--Aipom_Banana_2.gif Aipom 424.png--

Whoops! Super Mario 64 DS. Klaus Kratchet

not like that. Max2 read the talk.

That picture is more like a promotional screenshot rather than a beta one. I would still consider it beta though. Confused

P.S. I've played Mario Circuit in MKDS (w/ Action Replay) It also has more Item boxes, and the Chain Chomp is gone. Max2 (talk)

Luigi's Mansion[edit]

I've heard that there are a ton of Beta things... but can't find a reliable source. Anyone know of one? I want to make a new section. Max2 (talk)

Fix Super Mario World![edit]

The Yoshi Shroom[edit]

Judging by a third sprite of the Yoshi Mushroom, I think it was going to be used as a parachute making falls alot slower. PP (walkazo's brother)

The Ladder Pixl[edit]

It seems to me like the Ladder Pixl might be a beta version of Carrie. After all, it does slightly resemble a platform and has Carrie's wings. While I know it isn't be possible to obtain Carrie at that time, Tippi is also in that same screenshot despite that she should be kidnapped. --Akruru

Idea[edit]

why miamoto don't use the unnameds kongs on DK Bongo Blast a rumor of DK Barrel Blast

Look in some games.[edit]

There could be beta elements just hidden around out of reach. Like the train set in Toy Time Galaxy.
The preceding unsigned comment was added by Rouge2 (talk).

I fixed the Glad and Calm Goomba Part.[edit]

Normal Enemies don't have HP in the game.

Glad Goombas would probably move around and bounced (or dancing as the glossary says about most Glad Enemies)

Calm Goombas would just sleep, until Princess Peach gets near them and act like a normal Goomba afterwards.

Mewtwo[edit]

Can anybody source the Mewtwo in original SSB romour? --HyperToad 14:07, 7 December 2007 (EST)

Mario Galaxy Note[edit]

I saw in a pre-release demo video for Galaxy that there was a hidden Life Mushroom at the beginning of Honeyhive Galaxy. In the game itself, though, it was a 1-Up Shroom. --Galvanic 08:09, 3 January 2008 (EST)

In Super Smash Bros. Brawl[edit]

When I play the Super Smash Bros. Brawl, It was Princess Peach that transformed into a trophy by Wario and Zelda and Kirby on the Warp Star. Does that count as a Beta Element? Star.gifGissyStar.gifSuper Azumanga RPG

No, cause this depends who you save from petey McWolf

Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door Music[edit]

Where it is said that a beta piece of music is probably a boss theme, the likelihood is that, in actuallity, is is a beta 'File Select Screen' theme. The name for the file in-game is 'sys_mmc1_32K'. The 'sys' denotes a pre-game sequence, such as Title Music, or the prologue, and I'm guessing the 'mmc' stands for memory card.

Has anyone solid evidence that the music is a beta boss theme?

BETA PARTNER?[edit]

can anyone tell me how to get this beta partner in paper mario the thousand year door? User:Mario rex33

I'd be willing to bet that no one really knows, since it isn't sourced and BLiZZ, who added it here [2] is inactive. Also, that was his/her only edit. [3] Furthermore, Google isn't giving me any results. I'm thinking this is fake, so I'm going to remove it ... Incidentally, there was a Beta Partner in the first Paper Mario. - 2257(Talk) BbQbf6g.png 17:47, 6 August 2008 (EDT)

Realy? add the info to the article(Paper Mario). -Nerdy Guy

64 Beta[edit]

I found this video of many Super Mario 64 Beta elements [[4]] Should we take note of the differences in the video? -Nerdy Guy

Go nuts, but be careful of Toad's Tool 64 users making fakes. (The first of those videos is an obvious fake, #4 and #5 also look pretty dodgy to me.) - 2257(Talk) BbQbf6g.png 20:27, 15 August 2008 (EDT)


Debug Rooms of PM[edit]

Could someone who has the info please add how to access the rooms? I assume it's only possible by hacking, but I don't actually know, and I don't want to add unsourced info. Thanks! BLOC PARTIER.

Super Mario Galaxy Beta Models[edit]

If you have any questions/issues about it, ask me here.

The Super Mario Sunshine model I found is exactly the same model in Super Mario Sunshine. The model in Super Mario Sunshine also has the tropical shirt, and it is removed from the model in-game- the shirt is not separate. Also in Super Mario Sunshine, FLUDD is separate from Mario in the models. And the Geniehand's blue color and yellow band is exactly the same as the Disney's Aladdin genie, and the name "Geniehand" is just common sense. UntitledTrans.gif Girrrtacos UntitledTrans.gif

Super Mario 64 Almost completely incorrect[edit]

While I'd like to say some of this is true, 80% is wrong, wrong, wrong. Now I'm no expert, so I need sources to back up these claims. Especially for the Luigi and the FX chip thing; those are really sketchy and probably incorrect. Notes:

textures with lava outside the castle instead of water; Never heard this one. Proof? two text-circles; Wtf does this mean? a leaf; leaves come off of trees, doofus! strange stars and moons symbols; these are found in the TTM slide... loads of unused wall and floor textures; more proof please? a strange unused palm tree; this one is used in SSL. I can't believe people are this stupid. And if it's different, pictures of TT64. an scary looking door with a bat alá Bowser; it has a jolly roger (skull and crossbones) on it. ;P and a beta tree; They already said this. Pictures? Quate 21:12, 19 September 2008 (EDT)

I've removed that. FINALLY. Also, the FX Chip and Luigi things IS correct. KingMario 16:13, 29 October 2008 (EDT)KingMario (talk)

SM64 DS Beta.[edit]

I found a beta element in Super Mario 64 DS, but I want to see what others think before I add it. When using my AR, I put in a code that makes all Goombas into Koopas. I went into Bob-omb battlefield, and some of the Koopas were red! They acted like the green ones when I first saw them, walking normally until you get close, but when I attcked on, instead of running franticly trying to find it's shell, it just kept on walking like normal until I got close. Also, you can't ride the red shell, if you dump on them or attack them, they roll in the direction you hit them in, killing anything in their path until they hit a wall.--Kirbychu 15:20, 14 October 2008 (EDT)

What code is that? - 2257(Talk) BbQbf6g.png 19:35, 14 October 2008 (EDT)

It must be something that Nintendo forgot to remove, or coulsnt remove. So I would say add it. Super-YoshiMust...eat...sig...Talk? C???

Super mario sunshine test level[edit]

Diddy Kong Pilot[edit]

Should we move the Diddy Kong Pilot section infromation to it's page, because the game was canceled and never released. So basicly, it's redunent to have info on a cancelled game on the Beta Elements page. Plus we have all the info we have on this page, on the Diddy Kong Pilot page, plus a screenshot of K. Rool we don't have on the Beta Elements page. This will also make room for futre games once they get relesed. Hi!!!Nerdy Guy (Let's do it!!! Please?)Click on the "y", please.

DK64 Glitch Reveals Beta Room?[edit]

Everybody pretty much knows how the under island glitch in DK64 leads to being able to find a secret room, but is that room beta?

Hi!!!Nerdy Guy (But does anyone else consider it beta?)Click on the "y", please.

Beta Mario Kart Wii Items[edit]

http://www.spriters-resource.com/other_systems/mkwii/sheet/23542 I think I just found some items from the prototype MKWii. Superjustin 19:06, 4 May 2009 (EDT)

Very strange. Someone should should also check this out.
The preceding unsigned comment was added by Onestop (talk).

I also found this: http://www.spriters-resource.com/other_systems/mkwii/sheet/23874 http://www.spriters-resource.com/other_systems/mkwii/sheet/23541 These were all made by Girrrtacos, and since he's a member of the wiki, i think he's the one we should ask about these, but they look all like beta stuff+ actual stuff combined (since are rips) MasterBlaster3000

In fact, the "beta items" you're considering (fireballs, wiggler and, possibly, chain chomp) are found in the game, although they appear only in a game mode, the tournaments (or hacking). Girrrtacos has added other characters on such sheet from other games.

The beta characters (Petey, Hammer Bro, etc) are beta, aswell as the Chain Chomp (That Japanese symbol pretty much means "beta"). -Girrrtacos

Beta Riverside Station Song[edit]

That first unused Thousand Year Door song, when its file name is translated, it says something like "train station". This could be a beta song for Riverside Station. Someone else should look into this
The preceding unsigned comment was added by Onestop (talk).

Indeed. The filename is "stg eki1 32k.stm", and 駅 eki means station. Riverside station's indoor areas are referred to with "eki" by the game. Outdoor areas get "hom" instead. The final riverside station theme is called "stg hom1 32k.stm". So, I'd guess that the music was intended to change to this when you moved indoors. ...I'm glad they didn't go with this music, it really doesn't fit.
Incidentally, the other unused music is "sys mmc1 32k.dsp", which I'd guess stands for "Memory Card. - 2257(Talk) BbQbf6g.png 17:32, 10 May 2009 (EDT)

Beta Super Mario World[edit]

This very large glitchy bush depends of type of level... (it's still a background but it's look other way)

I decided to list all of these effects (also - ignore these 1/2/3, this is because of SMW programming to make more objects):

  • Grassland: very glitchy bush
  • Castle 1: the middle of the Stone Block
  • Lineguide/Mushrooms: the background from lineguide fragment
  • Undergrounds: really glitchy background (this because it's use block reserved to "Castle 2", which isn't look good with Undergrounds)
  • Switch Palace: ???, this look with sense, even the blocks used by this background are unused. This really looks like BETA. It looks like net. It's depends of background color setting. (most of these "backgrounds" use foreground or shared colors).
  • Ghost House 1: Yes... it's background with sense... but the graphics of it are used... looks best with black backdrop. Maybe it has to be used in falling Sunken Ghost Ship because it look. But this falling part uses Castle graphics... strange... (it's sense because SMW vertical background bug). Wait... in the background levels take two screens... maybe it's use of this...
  • Castle 2: Fragments of canvasses
  • Forest: It's only bush fragment. Bushes looks glitchy in forest tileset, even through they can be inserted...
  • Ghost House 2: Tile used by this isn't meant to be used by foreground/background, but by sprites.

false characters[edit]

It said marth, mewtwo, ash ketchem, diddy kong, gooe (sic), james bond, mr. saturn, mew, ganondorf, wario, toad, banjo and kazooie, and sukapon were supposed to be in super smash bros. I removed them. Was I wrong? Plasma12 00:50, 25 July 2009 (EDT)

Questionable Paper Mario: TYD elements?[edit]

I saw the beta elements here and saw a whole bunch of unsourced beta elements. I can understand the explanation of the text and I've seen all the graphics before, but what exactly is this beta 9? Why are there more fights in this beta 9 (including Prince Mush!), and why aren't there tattles for this information? Is beta 9 in "circulation," because I've certainly never heard of it. Or is it like the Ocarina of Time "beta quest," which ended up being garbled data taken from cutscene codes?

With that out of the way, I have two contributions to this section. Firstly, I'm surprised the hidden badges aren't listed there in greater detail. You can actually unlock some unused badges with an Action Replay, including - believe it or not - a fully functional Debug Badge! It has no name and I don't believe it uses BP, but if you use it Mario (and I think his partners) will be invincible. Mario will always perform a timed hit and make the audience go wild for you. He will also always dodge an attack without taking damage. However, if you do that multiple bounce attack, he'll be stuck jumping on that enemy forever. I no longer have the Action Replay to look up the code, but I got it off GameFAQs a while back and I still have a save file with it if you want me to check it out again.

Secondly, there's a YouTube video I remember seeing sometime after the Japanese version was released. This seemed to be Japanese footage, but since this wasn't listed in any Japanese / English differences anywhere, so I'm assuming it's something that's a beta element. Do you know that empty house in the back alley of Rogueport, just north of the central area? The one with the flies in it and I think a Trouble Center fellow wanted to live in it? In this video, there was police tape in this house! Not that "do not cross" police tape, but that white police tape in the middle of the floor outlining the body in a crime scene, shaped like a human! The implication being that someone was murdered, obviously. Very un-Mario, but it was there, and that's why I'm wondering if this is a localization change (Japan generally finds more things acceptable than us sheltered folk) or something taken out entirely. I'm sure I can find that video if I tried. It qualifies for a surreal beta element... Probably just a mere aesthetic change and nothing important to the plot.

Anyway, that's all I have to say regarding Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door. Hopefully someone could tell me what this beta 9 is and verify the police tape thing. LinkTheLefty 13:55, 19 August 2009 (EDT)

Beta 9 is currently owned by one of our users, User:Stooben Rooben. You can talk to him for more info about it. Yes, it may be questionable practice to go on the word of a single person on the internet. As for why there's no tattles, keep in mind that the beta tattles that are present are unused data in the final game, not info from Beta 9 (This may not have been clear, sorry.) Therefore there doesn't need to be any correlation between the two. - 2257(Talk) BbQbf6g.png 14:35, 19 August 2009 (EDT)
And yes, it seems that some white marks removed from that room. Localization teams suck. - 2257(Talk) BbQbf6g.png 15:13, 19 August 2009 (EDT)
Ah, I see. Thanks for clearing that up. I just find it fishy that Prince Mush was programmed as a fully functional boss at one point (and is SORELY missing from the final game at that), yet in the final game no one seems to find any of these missing battle frames and yet we can reconstruct so much other beta material. But it's understandable in the end, I suppose. Also, now that I re-read the article, it seems that the same Debug Badge was also in the original Paper Mario, so I guess it may be a remainder of the original game (obviously edited for the applause actions). Lastly, the picture - it's actually kind of funny to me since I see now that it's a Toad, but there's also what seems to be dry blood on the floor that I don't remember being in the game! Interesting. Is this your picture, or know the person who took it? I really think it should submitted to The Mushroom Kingdom website for archive purposes. LinkTheLefty 15:05, 20 August 2009 (EDT)
I think that Batchiri Command / Right On! was actually something else. It's just that if it was intended to be used only for debug purposes, then several of its properties are inconsistent. For example, why make it use 8 BP? Why give it the flashing バッチリ sign? I think it was actually intended to be a real badge. But, since it makes gameplay trivial, and hangs when you use Power Bounce, it was scrapped. As for that image, I screencapped this. I guess I'll go ahead and submit it to TMK.
On a totally unrelated note (but still relevant to the page,) what's up with Kamek in Japan? - 2257(Talk) BbQbf6g.png 16:38, 20 August 2009 (EDT)
Oh, if you mean that Mario Kart 64 edit I made, I did that because, since Magikoopas are known as Kameks in Japan, the game is developed in Japan and there was a lone Magikoopa racer, it's pretty much a given that this was intended to be Kamek anyway (like the SMRPG Magikoopa). That, and at the time of the character's scrap he'd have been known as Kamek rather than Magikoopa anyway, based on these facts. But if you guys are opposed to that change for whatever reason then I won't argue with it. LinkTheLefty 20:10, 20 August 2009 (EDT)
I was really just interested personally, since I'd noticed that every Magikoopa was called Kamek, didn't know why. I think your edit's fine. - 2257(Talk) BbQbf6g.png 22:13, 20 August 2009 (EDT)

Rabbit[edit]

I'm beginning to doubt that the "purple rabbit" is real. Because I was playing my copy of SM64DS and the angle and shading of my DS screen made the pink rabbits that Mario has to catch appear purple in color. Besides, the picture appears rather distorted anyway so it could be a hoax. And if I'm wrong, and this was already in the coding then I'm wrong just let it go... MKwii Bob-omb.jpgElectrobomberWMOD SparkyWario.jpg

Title[edit]

Correct me if I'm wrong, but shouldn't this be called "Beta element"? (Singular form with a lowercase 'e'.) I don't recall "Beta Element" being a proper name, and we normally don't have articles with a plural title. — Stooben Rooben 15:28, 29 September 2009 (EDT)

I agree on the lowercase e, but why do you suggest to use the singular form? I mean, it just sounds strange to me since there are clearly several elements on this page ;) Time Questions 15:33, 29 September 2009 (EDT)
Well, that part I can concur with. I guess I just mentioned the singular form because I had my new proposal on my mind. :P — Stooben Rooben 15:49, 29 September 2009 (EDT)

Paper Mario 2 beta japanese element that is not translated[edit]

The first japanese text that isn't translated is an explanation of how to use the Ultra Jump... Is it really a beta element ? Koopalmier 02:59, 5 October 2009 (EDT)

Yes, it was in Japanese in the NA ROM, which has no capability to display Japanese characters. Therefore, it must be unused. Also, where did you get the translation you provided? - 2257(Talk) BbQbf6g.png 12:09, 5 October 2009 (EDT)
Uuuh... I translated it, I suppose ? Well, I used a translator. Koopalmier 16:54, 7 October 2009 (EDT)
I thought you can hack and toggle the Japanese back in, and vice versa? Though I might be thinking about Ocarina of Time... But isn't that more of a regional leftover than a true beta element? LinkTheLefty 12:08, 26 April 2010 (EDT)

Mario 64 original voice?[edit]

Mario vs. Donkey Kong info, and miscellaneous others (NSMB & SMS).[edit]

There needs to be a Mario vs. Donkey Kong section. We only have one for the sequel. There is actually more than enough unused material to warrant a new section. For instance, there is unused Bob-omb behavior in which they run whenever Mario picks up a hammer, but this never happens since they don't exist in the same stage. In addition, there are missing levels that appear to be unfinished working versions of the rare Japanese e-Reader levels, and - this is a big one - there is a fully functional level editor within the game's code, linking this game's development with the lost Donkey Kong Plus. This could all be seen on Unseen 64, which also had info on a leaked prototype of the sequel: http://www.unseen64.net/2010/03/13/mario-vs-donkey-kong-gba-beta-unused/

Also, there is much more to add in the New Super Mario Bros. (DS) section. For instance, there are a lot of unused elements and further code than never saw use in the finished game. There are a few glitchy or unfinished levels that have been found (five to be exact). Further analysis also shows that the early builds of the game also seemed to have ripped animations straight out of Super Mario 64 DS, such as Mario's idle pose, and his hat would fall down after him whenever he jumped like in Super Mario World: http://www.unseen64.net/2008/04/22/new-super-mario-bros-ds-beta/

Lastly, although development seems to have been abandoned, several unused models were found on the X-Cult forums regarding Super Mario Sunshine. One of these includes a version of one of the strange enemies ("Hinokuri" - I'm guessing that means "Fire Goom") seen in an early build (walking around town with long legs). It has a bunch of finished animations, such as a "hurt" one and so on, and it wore a mask that broke over time. There are a few more unseen things, such as loaded enemies and objects depending on the level (similar to Super Mario 64): http://forums.x-cult.org/topic/4929-mario-sunshine-leftovers-122509/

Just thought I'd bring this all to you guys' attention, it's noteworthy stuff. LinkTheLefty 16:16, 6 June 2010 (UTC)

Sorting[edit]

That little bar at the bottom of all the beta pages is really cluttered. We could sort it. By perhaps DK-Yoshi-Mario series? Or by console? Just an idea. --TimTamChimchar 01:02, 15 January 2011 (EST)

New Unreleased Game Discovered!![edit]

Hello everyone. Take a look at this announcement of two Mario titles in development for the CDi: cdimag.jpg

Of course, the article mentions Hotel Mario. What's interesting is that the other game is not Super Mario's Wacky Worlds - it's an unreleased edutainment (?) game called Mario Takes America. Supposedly a "Digital Video" title, it seems to be about Mario making a documentary using real footage. One would wonder why it was dropped after work was put into it, but it probably had to do with Nintendo thinking it was too realistic for Mario. As for the Hotel Mario section, it mentions that Yoshi has been kidnapped rather than the princess. LinkTheLefty 20:51, 11 May 2011 (EDT)

I wonder...could the information about the dropped game be added to the CDi article as trivia? For a source, we could cite the source of the picture.... Mario4Ever



(bangs head against wall) *sigh* This could've been a CDi version of Mario's Time Machine.

Super Mario Games' Beta ROM[edit]

Is it possible to get the ROMs for the uncompleted games, because there are many extra stories and campaigns that were removed from the final versions that many Nintendo players want to test.

If you know anything about the possible locations of where to test Betas or you know where to get them from please edit and state your comment below:

Anonymous - I heard that Nintendo have a entire Hard Drive full of Betas -- Some of which have been smuggled out and released secretly. But its only a rumour.

Masterworm2 - I really want to try out the Beta ROMs, especially Super mario Sunshine Beta (I wonder what that girl was doing in delfino plaza beta map?).
The preceding unsigned comment was added by Masterworm2 (talk).

Paperphailurethemariomonster99 - I heard there are some betas floating around on Ebay.
