Classic Mode: Very Hard
This graphic is found with the rest of the Interrupt Save graphics, as it was in Game & Watch Gallery. They still wanted to do a Very Hard difficulty for the Classic Mode, but alas, it was never finished.
Each of the five starting games will load a partially programmed Classic Very Hard mode. Only the save interrupt was implemented. It is still possible to display the graphic for each game by using the below GameShark codes, though all games will behave exactly like Game B.
Early Title Screen
An early title screen (likely a placeholder) is still in the game in all Game Boy forms, and can be accessed with Game Genie code 0C1-F7F-916 or the debug menu (see below). Pressing Start takes you to the normal title screen.

An extensive debug menu remains in the game, almost completely intact! Use GameShark codes 0101A6C0 0101A7C0 or Game Genie code 011-F7F-916 to access the debug menu. Be sure to turn the GameShark code off when you enter the debug menu.

This should set your score, but this doesn't seem to work.
Should set your miss count, but this doesn't seem to work either.

This should probably set the Music variable on/off, but it never seems to save a value either way.

Play music tracks. Hitting Left / Right will automatically play the track you select.
Changes the tempo of the current track. Ranges from 0-F, with 0 being the fastest and F being the slowest.
Normally inaccessible from the main debug menu, due to a bad pointer. However, by using Game Genie code 051-F7F-916, you can start at the Save Interrupt screen. Your current game and information is shown. You can erase the save interrupt by setting DATA CLEAR in the Save menu.
Starts your currently saved game.
TO THE MENU
Returns to the main debug menu screen.
Game Data management has two options, DATA CLEAR and ALL CLEAR. The former will erase your save interrupt status, while the latter will clear your game records, remove all of your unlocked games, and delete your save interrupt session.
A slightly corrupted screen showing statistic and information about the ROM. The palette was never programmed for the GBC mode; only SGB mode has a proper palette.
Super Game Boy Palette Masking
When Game & Watch Gallery 3 was localized to the US, the SNES controller's A/B-button palettes were not changed to reflect the US blue and purple buttons. Rather than update the palette completely, they forgot to update the attraction attributes, leaving the original code assigned to the palettes visible.
This can be seen by exploiting a palette glitch which involves clicking on the camera icon then waiting for the palettes to change. The easiest way to do this is to pause and exit Classic Flag Man, although it can be done using any game's Classic mode.
There are two unused Star icons and unfinished path.
There is an unfinished path that shows two inaccessible buildings and a few unused graphics. It is unknown what buildings or features may have been planned.
GameShark code 01??72C0 will display either unused star icon.
Early Title Screen
The early title screen has several unused graphics, and some very strange ones at that.
Much like Game & Watch Gallery 2, the copyright years for the international versions are that of the original Game & Watch games, rather than the actual release years for the compilation in the Japanese version.
Much like in the previous two games in the series, some museum panels in the Japanese version display the initial retail price information of the games that were released there. The international versions, meanwhile, once again exclude this information.
For the games that were not released in Japan, the Japanese version displays かいがいのみ ("overseas only") in place of the initial retail price information, while the international versions (obviously) display the Outside Japan only text.
In the Japanese version, Yasuo Inoue and Sachiko Nakamichi are credited as artwork designers while programmer Toru Fushimi's surname is spelt Fusimi. The international versions, meanwhile, replace the first two with translators Paul Rush and Bill Trinen.
Oddly enough, the only change that the international versions made was correcting the spelling of Luigi's name, as it was originally spelt "Luige" in the Japanese version. The other characters, meanwhile, retained their romanized Japanese names.
The 150 congratulations screen does not exist in the original Japanese version.
