Egg type: list at nybble 10: 0=Normal,1=Rolling. 1 is used when the equivalent unused Lakitu setting is used.
Spawn as: list at nybble 11: 0=Default,1=Spiny Egg,2=Shell,3=Upside-down shell. 1 is used by Lakitu and Lakithunder.
Faster: checkbox at nybble 9 with mask 1. Unused.
Unknown 8: list at nybble 8: 0=Normal,8=Unknown 8,9=Unknown 9. 8 and 9 are used by Lakitu and Lakithunder respectively. This is possibly a "bounciness" setting. Or maybe nybble 5 (if it exists) is that,

PyroPodoboo (rev. 9)

Item: list at nybble 9: 0=Nothing,1=Coin,2=Mushroom/Flower,3=1-Up,4=Coin,5=[See comment],6=Coin,7=Mushroom/Flower,8=Mushroom/Flower,9=Mushroom (weird),10=Mushroom,11=Coin,12=Mushroom/Flower,13=Mushroom/Flower,14=Flower,15=Coin. 5=Star (weird) [US]; Flower [JP]; Mini Mushroom [EU]; Blue Shell [KS]; Mushroom/Flower [CH]. 0, 4 and 5 are unused.
Brick Head: checkbox at nybble 10 with mask 1. Makes Blockhopper a bit like the Pile Driver Micro-Goombas in SMB3. Same behaviour as far as I can tell. Unused.
Height: value at nybble 11. Higher values will slow down the game. There is a limit, of something.
