Knuckle Heads (ナックルヘッズ?) is a 1993 weapon-based fighting arcade game developed and published by Namco. It was created during the fighting game trend of the 1990s that began with Capcom's 1991 hit, Street Fighter II.
The player's character fights against his or her opponent in best two-out-of-three matches in a single player tournament mode with the computer or against another human player; however, when both are knocked out simultaneously in the first round, one of them will win the second round. The player has a character roster of six fighters to choose from, each with their own weapons and special techniques. After the player knocks out five different characters, the player will fight against two characters at once instead of one. The most notable features are the jump button and multi-player that allows up to four players to play simultaneously.
There are six playable characters and no bosses.
- Rob Vincent (ロブ・ビンセント?) (voice actor: Nobuo Tobita) - The protagonist of the game. Uses dual tonfas.
- Takeshi Fujioka (タケシ・フジオカ?) (voice actor: Toshiyuki Morikawa) - Uses a kusarigama.
- Blat Vaike (ブラット・ヴェイク?) (voice actor: Takashi Yanagihara (柳原孝安?)) - Uses a hammer.
- Christine Myao (クリスティン・ミャオ?) (voice actor: Megumi Hayashibara) - Uses a quarterstaff.
- Gregory Darrell (グレゴリー・ダレル?) (voice actor: Nobuo Tobita) - Uses dual axes.
- Claudia Silva (クラウディア・シルバ?) (voice actor: Kotono Mitsuishi) - Uses steel claws.
