Super Magnetic Neo, known as Super Magnetic Niu Niu (スーパーマグネチックニュウニュウ) in Japan, is a Sega Dreamcast platform game developed by Genki. It is similar to Crash Bandicoot in design, as it switches between 2D and 3D views.

The player controls a robot named Super Magnetic Neo who must save Pao Pao Park from baby Pinki. Neo has a large and powerful electromagnet attached to his head, and changing the polarity of this magnet can alter the environment.
