Lightning Legend: Daigo no Daibouken (ライトニングレジェンド 大悟の大冒険, lit. "Lighting Legend: Daigo's Great Adventure), is a 1996 3D-based fighting game developed by Konami Computer Entertainment Tokyo and published by Konami. It is the first 3D-based fighting game created by Konami. It is also a straight-to-console release, without an arcade counterpart.


It is a 3D fighting game, which features 8 playable characters. There is also a story mode with role playing game elements.[1] Story mode includes short anime cutscenes and dialogue between battle. Defeating enemies in this mode rewards players with up to 200 potential unique items.[2]

There are several gameplay modes:

  • Story Mode: The player moves across the world map as a chibi character and, upon encountering CPU characters, the scene transitions into a battle. After knocking out the last boss, Dragless, the player receives a separate ending.
  • VS Mode
  • Time Attack Mode (Hidden)
  • Collection Mode (Hidden): This is the so-called special feature mode of the game. In this mode, the player can gain access to hidden costumes and stages by collecting various items from replaying battles. The items can be acquired through completing specific requirements (such as winning under 1 second, performing a general attack as the finishing blow, and double KO the CPU opponent) or by completing the collection of all 208 items.


Default Fighters (can be used across all modes)

Imposter Fighter (that disguises as a subordinate of Dragless)

  • Risa Atago (愛宕理砂)(Risa Atago is Misa's wild older sister) (Voiced by: Yuri Amano)

Secret Fighters (Upon satisfying certain requirements in the game, these fighters become usable in all modes, with the exception of story mode.)


Weekly Famitsu gave it a score of 25/40.[1]
