Trigon (トライゴン), released in America as Lightning Fighters is a 1990 arcade game by Konami. As a scrolling shooter it is commonly compared to Raiden, though the two games were released very close to each other, and they were both meant to compete with the works of Toaplan.[citation needed]

Development[edit]

The three composers for the game were also working on the music for the Famicom title Crisis Force.[1]

It was released in arcades in May 1990.[2]

Legacy[edit]

Though Trigon has become an obscure arcade-only title, Konami has referenced it multiple times over the years. Gradius Gaiden features a boss modeled after the ship and weapons from the game, and Yu-Gi-Oh! cards such as "Trigon", "Delta Tri" (based on the mentioned Gradius Gaiden boss), and "Dragon Laser" also represent the game. It runs the same hardware as the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles arcade game.
