Multiple early "black box" NES releases' cartridges produced during the console's US launch in Winter 1985 didn't use NES ROM chips, but rather Famicom ROM chips with a built-in converter. The 15 NES launch titles, and the only games known to have these chips, are:

10-Yard Fight
Clu Clu Land
Duck Hunt
Hogan's Alley
Ice Climber
Kung Fu
Wild Gunman
Wrecking Crew

All of these games would eventually be reprinted with regular NES chips.

Bubbles' original name in Japan was Gloopy, and a defined gender was not given for her. It is very likely that Bubbles was made a female character by Nintendo of America, as her design lacks the common cartoon gender signifiers (such as a pink coloration or eyelashes) that Nintendo's character designers typically used at the time for female characters whose genders weren't intended to be a surprise reveal.
