Ay.

Found this on some Nintendo site. Dunno if it's already been posted, but I haven't seen it in any other topics.

I'm not gonna tell you what happens, that'd spoil it. I'll just say Link faces off against an enemy you would never expect (no, it's not Mario). Just download and watch, it's only 3MB.

If you have a Gameshark (its UK equivalent is Action Replay Pro I think), you can use these codes to get the same results.

(the secret enemy replaces the guy trying to lift the rock in Kokiri Forest)

Taken from the gamingw message board. Great stuff here.

Yep.. Cendamos/JayTheHam found the code quite some time ago. We've had the actor replacement method for a long time, but finding what variables did what and stumbling across this was, nothing short of amazing.

Actor and arena replacement is quite easy in OoT. :)

This gives you an insight into the mind of a Nintendo progger, I guess. haha
Miyamoto must of had a good laugh at this. I would have loved to be there the day they were messing with this. Did anyone ever find any text pertaining to this discovery using the memory editor? Perhaps there's hints to the intention, or when it was added. would be nice to find out more.

When it was added.. well, judging by its appearence in the ROM and it working perfectly with the final version, probably since the engine has been finalized. There are quite a few objects in this ROM that most likely don't load because said object was from a different engine revision. I was pretty shocked when we stumbled on the Arwing.. It's funny how much data they crammed into this, and keep it a nice 256Mbit. I'd say why it hasn't been discovered until now, but that would cost me my life. ;)

What was it for? It was apparently was little more than part AI test, part joke. There's no text giving an obvious answer in ROM. Even if there were, it'd be either Yaz0 compressed and illegible, or Japanese script and illegible (not in the sense that it can't be read due to a language barrier, but because it's nonstandard and not interpreted by ASCII viewers). I can tell you now though, that there isn't, compressed or otherwise.

Here's the Arwing in some other locales (MQ ROM):

I've no way of knowing without actually loading those objects into RAM. None of my mapped out models list are those. There may or may not be, but guessing values is the only way to load models and it's a long process.
