Messing around with debug mode and camera hacks, I found that it made for some interesting finds. The stages are quite large and some hidden items can be explored that normally cannot be seen in the game. Apologies to whoever reads the text because I have not played any of the Nintendo games that make cameo appearances or references here!

The very big test stage. The picture fills the entire camera. This means if you look behind the stage you would see a different part of the picture. Similarly, if you look up or down you would see different parts of the picture. It is isn’t very interesting though so I will not post it.
Fountain of Dreams
Fountain of Dreams is home to two large flowery star-like items that grow and move in the sky above the stage. The purple mist below the stage looks very cool and reminds me of documentaries which demonstrate the beginning of the universe :-p
The stage is more or less circular.
Behind the action.
The actual stadium is big compared to the stage. The city of Kanto dwarfs this though.
The transition which contains the windmill.

Birds Eye-view of the entire stadium with parts of the surrounding city of Kanto.
The entire Pokemon stadium stage surrounded by the city of Kanto. The stage is octagonal in shape. You will see that most stages contain octagons.

Looking up. Underneath the main stage area.
The entire stage of Peach’s Castle. Complete with waterfall background, and the three paths to the castle in the foreground.
Boundary of the foreground area.
Looking up at Bullet Bill.
Bird’s Eye-view of the castle with bullet bill in the middle.
Far away Bird’s Eye-view.
Underneath a floating platform. Nice lighting and detail, although you will rarely see it in-game.
Behind the castle. The developers didn’t bother to complete the back of Peach’s castle. You’ll see this a lot in other stages.
Kongo Jungle sports the classic waterfall and a rainbow effect. I always wondered what is inside the cabin in the background. It turns out it is empty!
Brinstar far away view.
Entire stage. The stage is inside a cave area.
Monster faces on the blocks in the background.

Behind Great Fox ship. The separate parts of the scenery can be seen here. The left most panel is blank.
Front View. Looks like the Venom stage.
Small jet plane.
High angled view. The buildings are present on the ground below.
The other side of the ship.
Yoshi’s Island takes place in a room and the stage appears to be hand-made from cardboard and other household items.
The walls of the room can be seen as well as the ‘taped’ string. The main column is also unfinished and the raw cardboard type material is exposed.
One of the islands in the background.
Another island in the background.
Bird’s Eye-view of the main area. The shy-guys are 2D.
Side view of the main stage. The cardboard and openings for Randall are exposed.
Wide view of the Onett neighbourhood.

Wide stage view. This stage is super wide. It goes farther but the details of the main begin to disappear.

Cranky Kong inside the cabin.
Behind the stage.
Klaptrap at a different angle.
Bird’s eye view of the main area with Klaptrap jumping out of the water.
Home to the Four Giants and a turtle.
The flooring of the inside the building.
Behind main area. Birds can be clearly seen.
The Four Giants wait behind the scenery.
Four Giants catch the evil moon and push it back to the sky.
Wide view. This stage is fully rendered. It’s also massive. Interestingly, that light-brown rectangle in the top-right corner is actually a prop. It’s just a huge light-brown rectangle that acts to ‘fill’ the scene.
Other side of the ship.
Behind the ship.
Wide view. The blue rectangle is the scene filler type object that was present in a light-brown colour in Venom. The track is loaded piece-by-piece as the vehicles progress forward.
Wide view of up-hill track.
Quite interesting. This stage uses two different types of blizzard to create the ‘thick blizzard’ that appears in the main area. You can see the the boundaries of the two different blizzard layers.
Entire top region.
Yoshi’s Island 64
Entire stage. It’s also circular.
Orb at the bottom-center of the stage.
Underneath the main stage. The patterns on the transparent platforms are quite cool looking. You have to view the full-size image to see these details.
Bird’s-eye view. Symmetrical.
