Takahashi Meijin (高橋名人, literally Master Takahashi), real name Toshiyuki Takahashi (高橋 利幸, Takahashi Toshiyuki, born May 23, 1959 in Sapporo, Hokkaidō), is a former executive of Hudson Soft.

16 shot per second[edit]

Takahashi became famous for his fast trigger finger speed of 16 shots per second during the 1980s and is particularly known for his use of this skill in the game Star Soldier and the Family Computer version of Star Force.

Later on in his life, his trigger speed was reduced to 130 presses per ten seconds. In the 2005-12-8 edition of Yaguchihitori show, he was only able to fire 12 shots per second. During the Star Soldier R challenge event in 2008-3-28, he fired at 12.3 shots per second.

In various fiction featuring Takahashi Meijin, the "16 shots per second" milestone became a key plot element.


Video games[edit]

He also appeared as a character in Hudson Soft's Hudson's Adventure Island series. In the USA and Europe versions of the games, Takahashi's character was renamed "Master Higgins".

The Adventure Island character was also turned into an animated series titled Bugtte Honey.
