In addition to the already impressive amount of endings the game has, there are still a bunch of others that were never "tied into the game", according to programmer Chris Tilston. However, thanks to a text dump, they have been found. It is unknown what the conditions to unlock them were going to be. These are the unused endings:


Fulgore:

1) WITH ALL TASKS SUCCESSFULLY COMPLETE, FULGORE WANDERS FOREVER IN THE PAST, LOST AND DEVOID OF PURPOSE.

2) FULGORES FAILURE TO ELIMINATE ORCHID IS A FATAL MISTAKE, WHICH HE DOES NOT LIVE TO REGRET.

3) WITH FULGORES DEATH, ALL REMAINING TRACES OF ULTRATECH ARE ERASED. THE FORCES OF EVIL HAVE LOST THIS FIGHT.


Jago:

1) JAGO WILL FEEL FOREVER EMPTY, BUT ULTRATECH IS DESTROYED. HIS QUEST TO SMASH THE EVIL THERE IS OVER - BUT AT WHAT COST...?

2) TOGETHER THEY UTTERLY DESTROY THE REMNANTS OF THE ULTRATECH CORPORATION. THE FORCES OF GOOD HAVE WON AN IMPORTANT BATTLE.

3) JAGO IS DEAD, BUT AT LEAST HE STOPPED ULTRATECH - OR DID HE... FULGORE HAS A NEW TARGET - JAGO'S ANCESTORS. IF JAGO WASN'T BORN, HE COULDN'T DESTROY ULTRATECH. FULGORE WILL WAIT...

4) FULGORE SURVIVES AND REBUILDS ULTRATECH FROM ITS BURNING ASHES. JAGO AND ORCHID WILL RISE AND FACE THIS FOE AGAIN AS A TEAM.

5) JAGO AND ORCHID UTTERLY DESTROY THE REMNANTS OF THE ULTRATECH CORPORATION. THE FORCES OF GOOD ARE VICTORIOUS ONCE MORE.


TJ Combo:

1) USING THE GOLD FOUND IN THE PAST HE LIVES HIS LONG LIFE LIKE A KING, FINALLY DYING AN OLD AND HAPPY MAN.

2) NOBODY BELIEVES HIS STORY ON HIS RETURN, BUT HE CARES NOT. HE'S RICH, HE'S MEAN AND HE'S BACK.


Spinal:

1) NOT ONLY HAS SPINAL DEFEATED HIS HATED MASTER, HE HAS ALSO RECOVERED THE ARTIFACT USED TO SUMMON HIM. HIS DESTINY LIES IN HIS OWN HANDS.

2) BUT WHILE HIS DESTINY CAN BE ALTERED SPINAL'S FATE REMAINS FIXED AS A VENGEFUL ENEMY ARRIVES TO SETTLE A SCORE.

3) USING THE ARTIFACT, SPINAL BOLDLY RAISES AN ARMY OF UNDEAD WARRIORS. WITH FEW LEFT TO STAND IN HIS WAY, THE WORLD WILL SURELY FALL.


Sabrewulf:

1) BUT STUMBLING INTO THE ALIENS SHIP IS A FATAL MISTAKE. SEIZING THE CHANCE FOR REVENGE, THE ALIENS SHOW POOR SABREWULF NO MERCY.

2) WITH TECHNOLOGY RETRIEVED FROM GLACIUS'S SHIP, HE FINALLY DISCOVERS A CURE AND RETURNS TO HUMAN FORM FREE AT LAST OF THE BEAST.


Maya:

1) WITH THE LOSS OF THE EARTH GODDESS'S PROTECTION, THE NATION OF AMAZONIA IS LUCKY ENOUGH TO FIND A NEW GUARDIAN.

2) BUT WITH THE EARTH GODDESS NO LONGER WATCHING OVER THEM, ONLY MAYA REMAINS TO STAND ALONE AGAINST THE ENEMIES OF AMAZONIA.
