Kendo Rage, known in Japan as Makeruna! Makendō (負けるな!魔剣道, "Do Not Lose! Kendo Magic"), is an action video game for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System/Super Famicom by Datam Polystar. Seta U.S.A. published the English version.

The original Japanese version of the game stars a girl named Mai Tsurugino (剣野 舞 Tsurugino Mai). A spirit detective named Doro (ドロ) finds Mai and asks her to help him attack monsters. In the English-language version of the game, an American girl named Josephine "Jo" goes to Japan to attend a summer kendo school. Her personal trainer, Osaki "Bob" Yoritomo, asks her to fight monsters on the way to school.
A fighting game follow-up titled Makeruna! Makendō 2: Kimero Youkai Souri was released for the Super Famicom and PlayStation. A role-playing video game titled Makeruna! Makendō Z was released for the PC-FX. An anime OVA series, Makeruna! Makendo, closely follows the original Japanese version of the game, featuring both Mai and her younger sister Hikari (the main character from the second game).
