Other leftovers

Every staff has assigned hit and weight stats. However, they are not used by the game at all. It is possible that staves could originally miss like in Thracia 776. Status staves can still miss, but they use all use a hit of 30 rather than the staves' assigned hit rates. Staves also had weight in Thracia 776, which was used for stealing.

Classes

There are unused female versions of the Mercenary, Cavalier, and Paladin. The Cavalier and Paladin's map sprites are unfinished and have an improper palette, with the standing-still and cursor-hovering map animations being those of the Fighter. Of the moving animations, which are complete (aside from the palette), they are edits of earlier versions of the male equivalents, but with a ponytail instead of a helmet. While the next two GBA games would introduce female Paladins and Cavaliers, they would simply use the same map animations as the male ones.

There are separate Fire Dragon and Divine Dragon classes. Their moving map animations are seen when a Manakete attacks with battle animations turned off, but their stats are unused, and their non-moving map animations are unused and unfinished, featuring only the head.

Miscellaneous

Character battle sprite palettes

Several bosses (namely Damas, Debias, Dory, Erik, Ruud, and Slater) erroneously have their battle sprite palettes set to be used when they are in an advanced class, even though they are in a base class. This results in them using the generic enemy palette. Note that Debias and Slater's palettes are identical.

Character Palette
Damas Bs fe06 enemy damas fighter axe.png
Debias Bs fe06 enemy slater knight lance.png
Dory Bs fe06 enemy dory brigand axe.png
Erik Bs fe06 enemy erik cavalier sword.png
Ruud Bs fe06 enemy ruud knight lance.png
