About The Game

Martial Champion is an arcade video game.

Knock-Out The Competitions! 10 typical fighters battle against each other in a tournament to win the belt of world Martial Champion.

Trivia

Prior to release, this game was known as 'Yie Ar Kung-Fu 2'.

The character Jin is similar to the playable character of 'Yie Ar Kung-Fu'.

The last boss, "Salamander", has the same name as Konami's shoot-em-up.

Martial Champion's sprites were some of the largest used in a fighting game up to that point (1993).

Updates

In all non-Japanese versions, Titi is known as Chaos and vice-versa.

Tips and tricks

Some of the selectable characters as Goldor, Avu, Titi (or Chaos in the Japanese version), Mahamba and Zen fighting with their weapons : if they fall to the ground during the fight (example, after a throw), they lose their weapon, and it can be collected by the opponent (by the way, few characters can use weapons to hit directly the opponent) : the lost weapon can be even recovered by his owner.

Beat all the game without lose a round to see specials ending with the showcase of all the characters
