A prototype of Mega Man X5 for the PlayStation.


The Cutting Room Floor research
  • Intro animation is unfinished.
  • Text reads Sample
  • Debug menu present
  • All 8 stages can be selected at the start
  • Cutscenes use very crude, MS-Paint style placeholder drawings
  • Practice mode is present at this point
  • Zero/Sigma stages are also present
  • Axel The Red (Spike Rosered) sprite is not in the boss selection sequence
  • Mattrex (Burn Dinorex) stage is present, but not the boss himself. However, all 8 bosses are in the rematch in the Sigma stage.
  • The Shadow Devil's theme doesn't play during its battle; it's instead the remix from the Rangda Bangda battle.
  • Sigma's pre-rendered image has a different pose in the final battle
  • Rockman X4's credits play instead and, oddly, the Shadow Devil's theme plays here instead.
  • Miscellaneous Notes:
    • Game is emulatable: Yes (as of April 17, 2021).
    • Game contains dongle protection: No.
    • Game contains debugging symbols: N/A
    • Dump was originally scrambled: No
