At PAX Prime 2013, Naughty Dog showed off enemy characters that never made it into the game. One type of enemy appeared to be bald, fanged beats with stringy fungus growing off of their backs. Other early concepts looked like generic zombies with fungi like groups scattered across their bodies. The developers felt that these iterations didn't feel like still-living infected humans, which is why they were scrapped. Another enemy that was cut from the final game is an infected elephant. It had tendrils of fungus grow from it's legs and blooming mushrooms on it's head. A scenario in the game would have had this creature chasing Joel as he desperately scrambled away. Instead the team decided early on that they wanted to have zoo animals to roam freely in the game. This led to the giraffe scene. See more
