  • Normal Mode: This is the standard play which you play in the arcades and on the cart system.
  • Battle Mode: This is the two-player setting match, where you can pick your characters each time and the stage in which you fight. This also allows you to play the boss characters via code.
  • Time Attack:

Special items[edit]

When your character is knocked down, your opponent is knocked down, or a balloon goes flying across the top of the screen, items are dropped. They are listed below along with their effects :

  • Doll: Bonus Points
  • Coins: Bonus Points
  • Sandals: Speed Up
  • Scrolls: Magic Up
  • Sword: Offense Up
  • Skull Bottle: Dizzy
  • Food: Life Up
  • Armor: Defense Up
  • Bananna Peel: Slip Up


Go to "Battle Mode." On player one's controls, push Arcade-NeoGeo-B.png 12 times, then push Arcade-Stick-Right.png eight times. The screen should flash and you now have control of Manto Ape and Karakuri. The code works on the player two controls, but its effect is unknown at this time.

Color change code

After doing the codes above, do the following:

  • Choose Yagumo: Arcade-NeoGeo-A.png Arcade-NeoGeo-A.png (Arcade-Stick-Right.png+Arcade-NeoGeo-A.png) Arcade-NeoGeo-C.png. Her outfit will change colors to white if you did it right.
