Rockman EXE's Obscure Cameo

A couple of years back, Protodude reported that Rockman EXE made a cameo of sorts in this obscure Japanese manga game called Zettai Zetsumei Dangerous Jiisan DS - Dangerous Sensation. Today I decided to look into it and see if I could figure out where Rockman shows up.
Starting off with some simple screen hacks, I made a cheat that allows you to skip to a level select screen. It's probably the debug menu but I can't be too sure. Use this AR cheat and hold select while transitioning screens. I think you need to make a save file first.

That should take you to the map select screen. To unlock the story-viewing modes, use this cheat and press Select, then change the map.

D8000000 00000000
D1000000 00000000
D0000000 00000000

All the modes should be unlocked. The Rockman cameo is on the second part of map 3. Click the white "rocket" shape. Here is the scene where he technically appears.
It's not much and I expected more. Duel Masters got a much bigger part in the game. There could be some minigame portions but most of them are unplayable. If the custom Huffman encoding could be undone, then the rest of the games graphics could be seen for another potential cameo.

That's disappointing. Thanks for looking, though!
