The Arcadian is the name of two arcade sticks with basic turbo features manufactured by KBM for the Sega Mega Drive in North America. Two versions were created - a three button variant (with three turbo buttons) and a six button version.

Several Arcadian arcade sticks were produced around this period although all lack documentation; the "Arcadian SN" was released for the Super Nintendo, and The Arcadian Dual covers both systems.
