The entire user folder is chock-full of tests, early versions of minigames, and of course, unused graphics, most likely from an internal developer wiki.
user\kiuchi\cuttingPuzzle\layout.arc has graphics of various pixelated things leftover from the DS game.
There's also some silhouettes of various objects.
In user\kiuchi\shooting, there's what seems to be an early version of Speed Spotting, with many pictures. A few remain in the final, but many are only found here.
In user\masuda\NandTest, there seems to be graphics left-over from a NAND memory test. The text corresponds to the filenames of the images.
In user\masuda\NigaoeTest, there's something involving using books from all angles, possibly a portrait test judging by the filename (Nigaoe (似顔絵)).
In user\masuda\SaveBanner, there's a early version of the save banner, along with a little drawing of Dr. Lobe.
In user\ogawa\layout_test, there's a bunch of numbers and... space.
The Japanese text translates to "Total" (合計), suggesting that this is from some sort of calculator.
In user\ogawa\ogawaTest, there are buttons and a very strange picture of an aquarium that looks like it's from the DS "prequel". user\waken\buttonTest also has these exact same files.
In user\ogawa\test\designer.arc along with some other places, there's some early graphics.
The first graphic is present in losehakari.bti and shows Dr. Lobe with a tear in his eye and a white flag in his hand.
The second graphic is present in winhakari.bti and shows Dr. Lobe with a trophy in his hand.
The third graphic is present in winlosehakari.bti and is similar to the second graphic, but the trophy Dr. Lobe is holding in this graphic is shinier.
Present in user/kando/dbController/layout.arc/layout.brlyt, a debug controller.
user\ogawa\sample has two TXT files. test.txt
The other one is in director.arc. aaa.txt
