Jungle Lord is a 1981 pinball machine that was produced by Williams Pinball. It featured simple speech, a Tarzan influenced theme, a multi-level playfield and a magnetic ball saver (Magnasave). The Early Production of this game had a red cabinet (~100 made). The later ones had a blue cabinet and the tiger artwork was slightly changed.

Jungle Lord was the second of the four two-level System 7 games that Williams produced. (Black Knight, Jungle Lord, Pharaoh and Solar Fire)

In an unlikely cultural reference, American comedy rock band The Aquabats wrote a song called "Tiger Rider vs. the Time Sprinkler!" for their 2005 album Charge!!. In an interview, the band revealed one of the primary inspirations behind writing the song came from a poster for Jungle Lord's artwork which was hanging in the studio they were recording in.[1]
