  • Record: 4-12 (2 KOs)
  • Height: 6'3"
  • Weight: 210 lbs
  • Age: 20
  • Birthplace: Brooklyn, New York, USA
  • Description: The disco king, AKA dancing boxer. He won too many trophies in the dancing competition (probably why he's stuck in the minor leagues).
  • Difficulty: **
  • KO Count: 3
  • Attacks:
    • Boxerciser: Disco Kid steps to the side and launches a Sucker Punch.
    • Sweeper: Disco Kid sweeps his fist across, so dodging left will still get you hit.

He's a bit harder than Von Kaiser since dodging left is out of the question. So keep ducking his attacks and you'll be fine. He'll also leave his body wide open, so attack there if you have a chance. His taunt is when he poses and his teeth shine, so wait for that "poker face" to appear and strike there.

Star opportunities
  • He has two star poses. First occurs at the start of the round, and another can occur during. Time your punch for when he flashes gold each time.
  • Counter his two punches.
  • If you dodge a punch, follow up with a combo. As he recovers, hit a hook from the side of the screen he's on with good timing.
Knockdown opportunities
  • When he taunts, try a Star Punch instead of a regular punch.
Challenges
  • Land a 3 star punch and win the match.
You do not have to score the final blow with that punch, simply connect with one at least once in the match and then go on to win. See Star Opportunities for techniques on earning Stars, then be sure to connect a Three-Star at least once. Still using a Three-Star for the final blow allows for his humorous special KO animation.
  • Discover 5 different ways to earn stars.
See Star Opportunities above for the techniques involved.
  • TKO Disco Kid using only 6 punches.
This is another Challenge that calls for a plan. The key to this is that Disco Kid taunts very often. The first punch is to hit him as soon as he taunts at the start of the round to get a Star. Then, as Knockdown Opportunities notes, smacking a Star Punch on him when he taunts again results in a knockdown. After that, counter one of his punches, then wait for another taunt to smack him with it. Repeat a third time to complete the challenge.
