Famicom Jump: Hero Retsuden (ファミコンジャンプ 英雄列伝 Famikon Janpu Eiyū Retsuden?, the subtitle translates to "Heroes History") is an RPG developed by TOSE for the Famicom and published by Bandai in 1989. The game commemorates the 20th anniversary of Shueisha's manga anthology Weekly Shōnen Jump.

The game is set in a world that brings together many of the long-running titles, which include stories of the past and present at the time of their release, that had appeared in the magazine. The game consists of a main character wandering and encountering the many Jump heroes as they try to save the world from an alliance of many of the most powerful and evil of the Jump villains.

The game sold 1.1 million cartridges for the Famicom in Japan. It was the first title in the Jump video game series. It had a sequel, Famicom Jump II: Saikyō no Shichinin.

The 16 Heroes[edit]

One of the main objectives of the game is to recruit 16 notable Jump hero characters in order to use them to fight against the enemies in the game's overworld, which is divided into several different areas. Aside from the player character, the Jump characters that can be collected are:

  • Kenshiro (Fist of the North Star)
  • Nukesaku Aida (Tsuide ni Tonchinkan)
  • Son Goku (Dragon Ball)
