I'm sure several of us on these forums are fans of Rygar for Nes. In Ligar's palace at the end of the game, all the enemies you encounter there are all completely covered in gray, giving them a shadowed look. One of the shadow enemies is clearly one of the game's bosses Drago, so I got to wondering if the other two shadow enemies actually had normal graphics if they were to change their palette somehow.

I don't know if anybody ever bothered to look into it, but I looked at Rygar in a tile editor and actually found those two enemies' graphics in the rom.



I'm not sure if I put together the spider's left/right graphic correctly. Anyway I thought this was interesting.

I wonder if it was a last minute decision to shadow them out in the programming stage? maybe they were running out of time to release it?

it would be curious to see them reinserted into the rom.

Very cool. Now, besides Drago, did any of the enemies in Ligar show up anywhere else?

Wait, these enemies have names? How is this known?

The Official Nintendo Player's Guide had a section on Rygar and it had a page showing most of the enemies in the game. I don't know if the names they had were 100% accurate, though there isn't anything else to go by.
