So basically, this is Dragon Warrior III Re-Remix.

Debug Menu

GameShark code 920095C2 will start both Japanese and United States versions in a debug menu.

  • Second Menu: Load the JP version, then activate the code 920C95C2. More details here (in Japanese).

There are various options for warp, message test, monster test/viewer, sound test, flag edit, a no-clip mode...

Unused Text

Normally, the condition for fighting the hidden boss GranDragn is to collect the first 155 bronze and silver Monster Medals to open the doors to his lair. However, unused dialog found at 1BF3F9 suggests a little something extra...

Humans… Here… Quite remarkable. 
I am Gran Dragon, the master of this temple.
If you wish to challenge me, then
gather the gold Monster Medals.
All of them.
Until then, I will wait right here.

Unused Graphics

In addition to the medals for the Dragon Warrior III monsters, the game also has Monster Medal graphics for all the monsters of Dragon Warrior IV. These cannot be seen normally, and why they're here at all is a mystery.

An amazing amount of wasted effort.
