Thunder Fox (サンダーフォックス) is a 1990 arcade beat-'em-up by Taito ported to the Sega Mega Drive in 1991. Terrorists capable of attacking on all fronts almost succeed in taking over the world, but the Anti Terrorism Team [sic], consisting of two fighters named Thunder and Fox, are here to save the day. You play as one of the two; they play identically.


A attacks with your knife. B jumps; Up+B jumps higher. Over the course of the game, you will come across collectible weapons; Down picks it up, A swings it like a club to attack, and C actually uses the weapon. Each of these weapons is only available in limited supplies, and you can only hold one at a time.
