To do:
  • Unseen buried castle in Carrie's good ending map (map ID = 0x1C, entrance ID = 0x03). Also present in Legacy of Darkness.
  • Unused smiley face. Appears in International Soccer 98.
  • Unused vampire actor variables, including vampires with human design and unused dress color.
  • Possibly unused Player damage type
  • Unseen red arrows out of bounds (with collision) in Forest of Silence.
  • Renon's boss fight takes place in the Room of Clocks map
  • In some revisions of the game, like USA v1.0, the text that is displayed after the credits end (and the player has obtained a Special2) refers to Reinhardt as "Schneider", which is how he was originally named in early versions of the game. This was corrected in EUR.
  • Unused and duplicate map spawn points
  • The clock seen in the Gameplay HUD has unused code to close itself. A bug is present where the minute marker doesn't disappear once it's closed.
  • Unused variables in the Entrance Map Name Display object.
  • Some maps have unused text in their assets file with only the following: "YES\n".
  • The Cerberus have an unused default life value (50)
  • Oddity: It's more likely to get items dropped from enemies during the night.

More commonly known as Castlevania 64 and the first game in the Castlevania series to be in 3D. It's often considered the black sheep of the series, with its wonky camera and controllers, but it makes up for it with its moody and spooky atmosphere similar to Super Castlevania IV.

Unused Areas

"Test Grid" Debug Room

This is a testing map that only consists of a big, empty room with a checkered texture. When sorted by ID, this is the last map on the list of maps in the game (ID 0x1D). A string left in the ROM shows that this map is internally known as TEST GRID.

This map can be accessed using the GameShark codes below. While in gameplay, press the Gameshark button to warp to this map:

This room appeared in a prerelease screenshot from the Konami Magazine, vol.7 (May 1998), where Malus was playing his violin.

Unused Characters

Cornell and Coller Leftovers

Originally, the game was meant to have 4 characters: Reinhardt, Carrie, Cornell and Coller. Cornell didn't make it into this game, but eventually appeared in Legacy of Darkness, while Coller was completely scrapped.

Pause Menu Text

Interestingly, the names for both characters are still present in the pause menu text data, and can be seen by enabling the Gameshark code below, and pressing the GS button during gameplay. These strings could be seen in an early screenshot showing the player selection screen.

The "XX" value is:

  • 02 = Cornell
  • 03 = Coller

Unused Coller Strings in the Gardener's Code File

It's very likely that Coller was reworked into the Gardener enemy, given the strong similarities in design between this enemy and Coller's concept art.

The file at 0xA253B6-0x0xA2945C (compressed, size = 0x40A6) in a USA v1.0 ROM contains the code and data associated with the Gardener. Said file contains unused strings at the end with animation filenames, and all of them are preceded with "(coller)":

(coller) mk_nutral
(coller) mk_teisi
(coller) mk_standup
(coller) mk_ikaku
(coller) mk_walk
(coller) mk_dash
(coller) mk_damf
(coller) mk_damb
(coller) mk_out
(coller) mk_attackl
(coller) mk_attacklm
(coller) mk_dashattack
(coller) mk_sewa

This list matches up with the list of animations for the Gardener in the final game:

Name Translation Description ID
mk_nutral MK - Neutral Idle 0x00
mk_teisi MK - Coming to a halt Taking heavy damage 0x01
mk_standup MK - Stand up Waking up after taking heavy damage 0x02
mk_ikaku MK - Intimidating Charging chainsaw 0x03
mk_walk MK - Walk Walk 0x04
mk_dash MK - Dash Run 0x05
mk_damf MK - Damage - Front Low damage (front) 0x06
mk_damb MK - Damage - Back Low damage (back) 0x07
mk_out MK - Out Dead 0x08
mk_attackl MK - Attack - L Attack (vertical) 0x09
mk_attacklm MK - Attack - LM Attack (horizontal) 0x0A
mk_dashattack MK - Dash attack Attack (running) 0x0B
mk_sewa MK - Sewa Gardening 0x0C

(Translation: Torentsu)

The official Castlevania 64 website for Europe shows a description of every character. The description for the Gardener enemy shows a render of Coller.

Unused Text



The strings above would have been displayed in menus. The options and file select screens use similar strings, but those are stored as images instead. USED MEMORY is unique in that there's no option in the final game to see the used memory.

Forest of Silence

The bike is burning...
Was it attacked by
a beast?

The Forest of Silence map does not have any bike laying burned in the ground. The only bikes present are the ones used by the Skeletons in the final King Skeleton battle, but this string does not show up there.

Castle Center

A large wooden box
prevents you passing.
You must go round...

This string is intended to appear when checking out the boxes in the room where the player gets the Nitro. However, its trigger is actually misplaced out of bounds, and thus it's impossible to read it. The place Carrie is in the above picture is where the text trigger can be found.

Button Config

Change view

This string would have appeared in the Button Config menu, most likely for switching between Action / Normal / Battle view. The string that is used instead is "Change camera".

Unused Graphics

Unseen Faces

To do:
This is just the player's regular face texture with the vampire palette applied, both of which are used. No evidence has been found that the developers ever attempted to to showcase the normal face with the vampire palette
CV64 Carrie VampireFace 1.png
CV64 Carrie VampireFaceTexture.png

This face is used after being transformed into a vampire and depicts Carrie with make-up, giving her a more mature appearance. However, it is overlayed by the eyeless vampire face, which requires this face to be set first. It is unknown where and in what context this face could have been used.

Version GameShark code
All 81350B06 0001

Reinhardt has even more facial issues. While the two post-transformation vampire faces do match the actual status and skin color change, they suffer from a graphical issue which makes the teeth somewhat blue. When setting both the face and overlay to 0x01 before the transformation, the correct overlay face is shown. But as soon the transformation is complete, it reverts to the "After V" or "After V+P" face, oddly keeping both values unchanged at 0x01.

Debug Font

CV64 debug font.png

An unused font, present in some N64 Konami games, such as Mystical Ninja Starring Goemon. This font could be seen in prerelease footage.

This is the second file referenced by the ROM compressed files table (at 0x95C3C-0x9642C in a USA v1.0 ROM). The file itself is located (compressed) in addresses 0x6F3CB6 to 0x6F4070 in the ROM, and has a size of 0x3BA bytes. The game loads this file into memory on boot, but nothing has been found that references it in the code.

KCEK logos in Title Screen

The file that contains the UI textures for the Title Screen (0x9D0AEA in the USA v1.0 ROM, compressed) contains three unused textures (mostly identical between each other) showing the KCEK logo without the "Konami Computer Entertainment Kobe". It's unknown where they would have been displayed on the Title Screen. In the image above, the "Castlevania" logo was replaced with the unused logo for showcase.

Segment addresses of the display lists within file 0x9D0AEA (decompressed) that contain the KCEK logo texture:

  • 0x0600C900 = Edges look slightly white
  • 0x0600CD58 = Shown in the screenshot above
  • 0x0600D1B0 = Logo is completely dark (probably intended for transparency?)

Unused Enemies

King Skeleton Warrior

This enemy uses the King Skeleton model, but behaves similarly to the regular Skeleton Warriors, plus it's biped (though its feet are slightly buried in the ground).

It's larger than the Skeleton Warriors (though smaller than King Skeleton). Its animations play slower, has a large health value, and does not have a voice.

Actor ID Code entrypoint (RAM) Assets file ID Overlay file ID
0x20AA 0x0F000104 0x26 0x8C

Unused Models

3-Head Wolf

To do:
Attempt to take better pictures, with the lower yaws. Try to see if the whole model can be reassambled.
Head (Left side) Head (Center) Head (Right side)
CV64 unused wolf head 1.png
CV64 unused wolf head 2.png
CV64 unused wolf head 3.png
CV64 prerelease wolfs.jpg

File 9 of the Nisitenma-Ichigo table (the table that references most files in the ROM) contains an assets file for an unused enemy: a wolf-like enemy with 3 heads. A gray variant of this enemy appeared in a prerelease screenshot, in the Forest of Silence map.
In the final game, the Cerberus enemies, which appear in the Villa's front yard area, are similar to this enemy in that it's a dog with three heads. In fact, the assets file for the Cerberus is located right after the one for this unused wolf.

While the file contains many model parts, it is unknown how they were supposed to be "assembled" exactly, so knowing what each body part each model piece corresponds to can be a bit difficult. However, the way this enemy's display lists are structured is very similar to how the Cerberus's display lists are, so it's assumed that the early enemy's hierarchy would have been very similar to the Cerberus's.

Head texture (Blue) Head texture (White) Head texture (Gray)
CV64 unused wolf head texture 1.png
CV64 unused wolf head texture 2.png
CV64 unused wolf head texture 3.png

The file also contains three palettes for three different color variations of the enemy: blue, white, and gray, but the textured display lists only reference the blue palette.

The file can be found in the ROM between offsets 0x705DCE-0x709292 in USA v1.0 (it is the first enemy-related asset referenced in the Nisitenma-Ichigo table). It doesn't seem to have any associated code in the final game.


Malus's assets file in the ROM (0x7604A0-0x764A48 in the USA v1.0 version, compressed) has two unused models. These are loaded, but appear invisible.

  • Bow: Near the end of the game, there's a cutscene where Malus shoots an arrow to the player. However, he is off-camera when he shoots, and even if the camera is turned around with hacks to view Malus when this happens, a bow cannot be seen. This display list starts at 0x00007188 within Malus's assets file (segment address = 0x06007188).
  • Sword: An unused sword model. It's unknown where Malus would have used a sword. This display list starts at 0x00007600 within Malus's assets file (segment address = 0x06007600).

Unused Animations

Malus shooting an arrow

In the beginning of the cutscene where Malus shoots an arrow to the player near the end of the game, he shoots from off-screen, so he can't be seen until the camera turns around.

However, he does perform an animation for shooting the arrow, which cannot be seen normally without the use of hacks to turn the camera to Malus at the beginning of the cutscene. Curiously, Malus assets file in the ROM has an unused bow model (see above).

Gardener getting hit (back)

Name Translation ID
mk_damb MK - Damage - Back 0x07

The Gardener enemy has an unused animation for getting hit from its back. In the final game, only the animation for getting hit from the front is used.

The following virtual addresses are for the Gardener's overlay (file ID 0x74):

  • - Translation data virtual address: 0x0F004258
  • - Rotation data virtual address: 0x0F004288

Carrie death animations

To do:
[Reindhart also has both impaled animations]

Carrie has three additional death animations that are unused. These show Carrie dying in grotesque ways, so it's understandable that the developers ended up scrapping them.

Use the Gameshark codes below to view each animation (for USA v1.0, press D-Pad Up). The RAM start address for each animation (both its translation and rotation data) are shown as well.

Unused Music

Sequence 0x62 Sequence 0x67

There are 2 songs in the game that are unused. It is unknown where these would have been played. Sequence 0x67 is Renon's theme with a different intro.

The addresses below are for the USA v1.0 version of the game.

Sound ID ROM start address ROM end address
0x62 0x6658D0 0x665FB0

Unused Cutscene

Video Prerelease
CV64 prerelease cutscene 1.png
CV64 prerelease cutscene 2.png

There's one unused cutscene in the game, whose ID is 0x32. The cutscene shows a close-up of Death first, and then the camera zooms out as he does an attack that releases 8 scythes.

This cutscene cannot be skipped, and it's programmed to start over once Death does his attack. The scythes that are already present on-screen are not removed before the cutscene is started again, so after a couple of minutes, the game will start lagging because of many scythes being present on-screen.

This cutscene appeared in some prerelease screenshots.

Unused Status Effects

To do:
Do the "unused" Status Effects affect the gameplay at all?

There are several unused Status Effects in the game, a few of which are unnamed. Most of them do not visually change anything, nor can they be healed using the "Healing Kit", as it only checks for Poison and Vampire.

One status effect, STO (Stone), seems to be the most developed status effect, as it's the only one that displays itself in the player's HUD when enabled with the GameShark code below. It was likely cut because there is only one area where you can be petrified, and having a separate status effect just for that didn't make sense.

Version GameShark code
Japan 80389C88 0004
USA 1.0 80389C88 0004
USA 1.1 80389C88 0004
USA 1.2 80389C88 0004
Europe 80389C8D 0004

As the variable for Status Effects is a 8-bit bitmask, each bit has its own status effect, which can be combined. Along with STO and combinations that feature it, this reveals 3 more unused status effects. They seem to be empty however, and have no real effect when applied and can't even be removed with the Healing Kit. Whether they were other cut statuses or simply placeholders/dummies is unknown.

Unused Save Jewel Candle Drop

Nintendo Power scan Video
CV64 nintendo power save jewel dropped from candles.png

Page 20 of volume 116 of Nintendo Power (January 1999) contains an interesting statement regarding how saving worked in a prerelease build of the game:

The torch in the ground floor inside the tower conceals a White Jewel.

In the final game, none of the save jewels are found inside candles. However, there are remains of this behaviour still present in the final game.

At 0x80189dd0 (USA v1.0), there's an array of 30 entries, one per map. Each entry is a pointer to a second array where each entry contains an item that will be dropped from the candle, and the bitflag it sets in the save file.

The first parameter of the candle actor controls which entry in that second array is going to be selected for the candle. Essentially, it determines what item should be dropped from the candle.

Almost all maps have at least one entry that makes the candle drop a save jewel, and even have the "bitflag" field set as the appropiate save jewel number.

In the video above, the first parameter of one of the candle actors at the beginning of the Forest of Silence map was changed to 0x12 (it was originally 0x00, which drops a Red Jewel (L)). 0x12 drops a save jewel whose save number is 2, which makes it save in the third save jewel of the map (as seen at the end of the video).

Unused Film Reel Effect

This game's cutscenes have an unused setting for a "film reel" effect like what Castlevania III: Dracula's Curse did for its opening.

There exists both a fullscreen and a widescreen variant of it, which are "effect setting" 1 and 3 respectively. In all of the cutscenes' settings, the only effects that are used are 0 and 2 (fullscreen and widescreen both with no film holes).

The following code previews this film reel effect (widescreen variant) in the opening cutscene at Forest of Silence (USA v1.0). Change the last value in the code from "3" to "1" to view the fullscreen variant:

Ending Message

Normally, the game ends prematurely on the Castle Center level if playing on Easy mode. But if the stage select code is used to jump to the last stage in Easy mode, and finish the game that way, then after the credits are over the following message will be displayed: "One adventure is over. But the truth remains in the darkness... Clear NORMAL to discover the truth!".
Presumably, the game was originally going to let you play through the entire game in Easy mode.

(Source: Torentsu)

Unused Pillar of Bones Damage

The Pillar of Bones enemy has an invisible collider that is attached to its head.

Curiously, this collider was originally supposed to be damagable upon contact, since the game assigns a damage value of 5 in the initialization function for this enemy (at 0x0F000ACC). However, this goes unused because the collider is not set to deal damage, since the initialization function does not call function 0x800408E8 (which assigns properties to colliders / hitboxes) with the 4th argument (A3) AND'd with 1. Instead, A3 is assigned to 10, which results in the collider not dealing damage. To deal damage, it should be, for example, 11.

In the case of other enemies, if the colliders they create aren't set to be damagable, they don't bother to assign a damage value to it.

Developer Text

The ROM and most overlays contain a lot of unused development strings. The reason why they appear in the final ROM is probably because the devs ifdef'd them out.

USA v1.0

The lines "ND3EA4" and "KCEK CastleVania the Apocalypse" are written to the Memory Pak. "ND3EA4" is the game's ID (USA version), while "CastleVania the Apocalypse" is the Japanese name of the game.

Room of Clock's contract event flag

The contract in Room of Clock is meant to set event flag 0x01000000, but goes unused because there's code that prevents the contract from settings event flags.


In the European version, the translators did quite an interesting number on some of the items, mostly the unused ones.

While the "Engagement Ring" and "Incandescent Gaze" was blanked out in the German localization, "The Contract" was properly localized. On the other hand, the German localization for the "PowerUp" is completely out of the window, translating back literally into "Load Items". Why they even partially localized some unused items and went out of their way to blank out others is unknown.
