Mystical Fighter, called Maou Renjishi (魔王連獅子) in Japan, is a 1991 Sega Mega Drive beat-'em-up by KID. During development the North American version was known as Kabuki.

Gameplay

The game is a typical beat-'em-up — whatever story is behind the game is not in the game itself. A attacks, B jumps, and C performs a magic ability, with several combination moves in between. You can pick up and use weapons like in Streets of Rage by pressing A while near one.
