    A lot of people think that the Beast Fang is one of the only things hidden in Cave Story, because it's the most obvious. In reality, there is a lot of unused script that was only intended for those testing the game before its release, as well as other text in the game unused for who knows why. After looking at the decoded TSC scripts for a long time, I have noticed interesting things here and there that I hope to share in this post. Warning: This page does contain some spoilers.


    - First of all, let's look at some script in the Egg Corridor:

    That's awesome. XD Yeah, I noticed how the Gaudi in the shop makes that snarky comment if you talk to him wearing the Mimiga mask... I made it a point at one time to go through as much of the game as possible wearing the Mimiga Mask to see if anyone changes their commentary towards you... but all I found was the fight with Misery (well-documented), talking to Booster (who needs better glasses), and that Gaudi. Oh, and Curly if you talk to her with the mask on before recovering her memory...but I never saw that personally, I just read about it.

    Some of those are great. I wish he'd left that Igor quote in, though.

    It says "0640:First Arrival
    0641:Open Door
    0642:Life Capsule"

    Flags of some sort, I figure.

    This is slightly meaningless but this is the only place to say how annoyed i am about this. I had a little look around the scripts for changed mimiga mask scripts. One of my favourite minor characters, after malco (malco's great), would have to be numahachi, the statue carver. On the tribute site it says he hasn't got much to say to humans (note the word humans) so i thought he'd be a bit like the shovel brigade and is not allowed to talk to humans. I was really annoyed that he didn't say anything new when i checked the scripts because i thought he might have something interesting to say. Oh well

    Yeah, sorry to say, but you just bumped a thread that was three years old just so you could say something that has already been said.

    I didn't know that plus it is not mentioned on this thread.

    Off-topic: What does "bub" mean?

    Watch where you push blame. The thread was bumped by Uncy Dave, not by Jcys.

    my bad it isn't mentioned sorry ok Not.

    As for the word bub... Pretty much what The Joker linked. My neighbour started calling my brother a bub for the lulz and it just rubbed off on me and my bro.

    Then we came up with more slang hat has no meaning like bubbed.

    That is so weird. I have read the whole thread and save it as a document file yet never noticed it was already mentioned. Maybe I was tired that time. I love this thread.
    My dictionary tries to correct it to boob which does mean idiot (The other meaning is from a slang so watch out). But as what does the free dictionary says, it does mean so close to "mate" for me. Thank you two The Joker and jcys810.
