Double Dragon is a beat 'em up video game that was released in 1987. The game focuses on the twins Billy and Jimmy Lee as they go against different opponents. The game is presented in a pseudo 3D perspective, where the player can move in four directions, but the character is always facing either right or left. At the height of its popularity, the game resulted not only in an animated series, but even a live-action film adaptation.

Kunio-kun is a series of games, with the first release being Nekketsu Kōha Kunio-kun for arcades. The game has players take control of Kunio as he goes against different gangs. An international version, dubbed as Renegade, offered new graphics along with dubbed voices to give it a more western feel. The plot was changed as well and instead of Kunio avenging his friend, he was now fighting the gangs to save his girlfriend.
