(SFC) Gekitou Burning Pro-Wrestling Player Modifier help

Hello everyone,

I'm trying to hack an obscure Super Famicom title called Gekitou Burning Pro-Wrestling.
Specifically, the second part of Gekitou's World Championship mode.

In the second part, the player must face 116 opponents consecutively to see the game's true ending.
The final opponent (on the left) is Tatsuki Mitusawa (Mitsuharu Misawa). The player's character
is always shown on the right. In the above example, the character I chose was Great Mumaroshi
(Great Muta).

Defeating Misawa leads to the game's credits.

After the above part of the credits, the player's character will appear on screen
with a two second taunt.

Each Wrestler has their own custom ending; which means in order to see all of the endings,
a player would need to complete Gekitou Burning Pro-Wrestling 117 times with all of the
characters and compete in 13752 matches.

Long story short, I'm hoping someone can help me figure out a player modifier code that
would allow me to switch out the character in the final match of World Championship mode.
Mainly so I could record all 117 endings ...without having to play through thirteen thousand-plus

A feat, as to my knowledge, no one else has done before.

For those who'd like to work with the rom directly, I attached a link that includes the game
and a Snes9X save state with part 2 of World Championship mode already unlocked. The save
file loads directly to the final match of the mode.


Whether locating the correct in-game address to modify players - or working with the rom
directly, any help would be greatly appreciated.

Eventually, I'd like to upload all 117 endings to Youtube.


I'm not 100% certain this is right, but try this cheat before the last screen:
306ff0=XX, where XX are all the hexadecimal numbers from 0x00 to 0x80 for a total of 129 characters?
Maybe there are duplicates, I haven't gone through all of them.
Hopefully the characters' animations are the correct ones.

Thank you, your code worked. I just had to return to the main menu. Now time to play through a match and see.


It seems I've come to another obstacle getting the final endings. The player modifier code only covers the
first 99 characters. Would you happen to have any idea of how to modify the ending for characters #100 - 117?

I've been messing around with coding. Replacing numbers with letters (such as 306FF09C) brings up this strange
additional character:

The unnamed character is a lightly-coloured (and barefoot) Mitsuharu Misawa. who just so happens to be wearing
purple trunks. Makes me wonder if this unnamed Wrestler was the original character template used to create
the rest of the Gekitou roster.

The 75th character modifier also brings up a palette glitch. The two legends that were most noticeably missing from Gekitou
Burning Pro-Wrestling were Antonio Inoki and Giant Baba. Could this be Antonio Inoki found in the game's code?!


I think I see the confusion. The last two digits in the cheat code are hexadecimal numbers, so
  • wrestler #0 would be 306ff000,
  • wrestler #16 would be 306ff010,
  • wrestler #75 would be 306ff04b,
  • wrestler #100 would be 306ff064,
  • wrestler #117 would be 306ff075,
and so forth.
A cheat code of 306ff09c would be wrestler #156.


Thanks to your help lightbulbsun, I managed to record all of the endings and discovered 14 additional Wrestlers
hidden in Gekitou's code.

Unexpectedly discovering the unfinished Wrestlers quite enjoyable. A process I'd like to experiment with a bit further. Wrestlers like Giant Baba,
Abdullah The Butcher, and even the original Tiger Mask were all strangely omitted.  Perhaps they too are locked away inside the game code...

With plenty of screenshots, I documented finding the first 14 hidden characters here:
