Usually the battery. However, turning the system on and off repeatedly
is also known to cause battery-saved info to erase (it's how I used to
have to clear my Romance of the Three Kingdoms 3 info from the cart,
since it didn't have a memory clear function). It's also why NES games
told you to hold reset while you powered the system off.
