* DummiedOut:
** There are a few unused tracks in ''Evolution Worlds'', including all of the dungeon tracks from ''World of Sacred Device'', either as leftovers or an indication that those dungeons were meant to be in the game at one point. In the final game, the dungeons in the first half use the Blaze Ruins theme from ''Far Off Promise''.
** Additionally, there are (dubbed!) voice clips for the [=NPCs=] of the Pannam Port and the [=KronPrinz=] [[spoiler: including lines for the various {{Mooks}} from the BattleshipRaid in the original]]. Given the fact that the first game didn't even have voice acting outside of the occasional battle grunt/phrase to begin with, the presence of dubbed voice clips, much less anything clips at all, could be an indication that the first game was meant to be preserved more closely [[AdaptationDistillation than it ended up being]].
