The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword Save Data Update Channel certainly takes the cake for the longest Wii Channel name. It's used to fix a bug in The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword that would make it impossible to progress in the game.

The fact that they had to make an entire channel for this shows you that the Wii didn't exactly have the best online infrastructure, to say the least.

Leftovers from Animal Crossing: City Folk

For some reason, the channel shares quite a few assets with Animal Crossing: City Folk. It uses the same cursor, and even the Channel theme on the Wii Menu is an alternate version of City Folk's Wii Menu theme. This also includes a couple of unused assets, a few of which aren't even present in City Folk itself!

Patterns and Palettes

Everything in Item/item.arc/Res/ and Item/item.arc/dsnPltt.brres contains patterns from the game, plus color palettes.


AddItem/addItem.arc contains 256 items. Notably, it contains 3 DLC items that were never distributed by Nintendo - blue Pikmin hat, yellow Pikmin hat, and green headgear. A red Pikmin hat and red headgear were released, so it's a mystery as to why the others weren't, though they would later be featured in Animal Crossing: New Leaf.
