Hello, I love unused content and I love Majora's Mask so I want to share my knowledge with you.

For now, there are 5 unused things which are presented, I would add others over time.


1/ Unused Actor - Donut Blocks
[+] Spoiler
As soon as you come in the room, it will begin to crumble, you must be quick.

Actor: 0114
Object: 00ED
Variable: Undefined

Video made by me

I think this is an adaptation of platforms from Mario for Zelda, by the way Donut Blocks is the name used in a Mario game but the real filename of this actor is Chikuwa and coincidences or not, the Japanese name for Donut Blocks is Chikuwa.
2/ Unused Variable - Rusted Switch
[+] Spoiler
The switch looks weird but it works perfectly, he can only be activated by Goron Link.

Actor: 93
Object: Dungeon object
Variable: X01 (X = Switch Flag)

Video made by me

As seen in some pictures, Goron Link was able to use a hammer in the past, so I think this is because of that the attack of Goron Link can activated the switch.
3/ Unused Actor - Bumper
[+] Spoiler
If you touch the bumper, you draw back, if you strike the bumper, you draw back... I think you understand.

Actor: 0106
Object: 014F
Variable: Undefined

Video made by me

That works exactly like the bumpers in A Link to the Past, so perhaps it was intended to be used in a narrow place or in high place.
4/ Unused Actor - Whirlpool effect
[+] Spoiler
In Deku Link form, it makes you instantly drown no matter how deep,
You can drown in Hylian Link and Zora Link form but it must be deep.

Actor: 00B8
Object: 0106
Variable:
0000 - Tall and narrow
0001 - Short and wide

Videos made by me:

Tall and narrow
Short and wide

This is a leftover from OoT.
5/ Unused Room Behavior - Heat timer
[+] Spoiler
The timer is exactly the same in OoT but there is no text in MM, strangely, Goron Link die due to fire.

Header Commands, Room Behavior: 08~~0000 0000~~03

Video made by me
I hope you find this topic interesting.
