The Mega Pad (メガパッド) is a third party control pad released in the early 1990s for the Sega Mega Drive manufactured by ASCII. It was licensed and distributed under Competition Pro branding in western regions as the Professional Control Pad.
The Mega Pad is a fairly bog-standard three button controller with turbo features. This one also has a slow motion mode which effectively a turbo feature added to the start (pause) button.
In the west, the controller was "followed" by the Professional Control Pad Series II and Professional Control Pad Series III.
