''Pulseman'' is a platforming game released for the Sega Genesis by the Game Freak company in 1994. The titular protagonist was born from the union of Dr. Shakuei Yoshiyama and the "C-Life" (abbreviation of Computer Life) form Dr. Yoshiyama created (specifically, Dr. Yoshiyama created the C-Life form, fell in love with her, and entered the computer world to be with her; their union then resulted in Pulseman). Pulseman is ''half'' C-Life, and this means Pulseman can freely travel between the real world and the computer world. This comes in handy when the world is attacked by a mysterious evil organization called the "Galaxy Gang", led by the evil Dr. Waruyama, a megalomaniac who plans to rule the entire galaxy. It's up to Pulseman and his girlfriend, Beatrice (who used to be a member of the Galaxy Gang, but was then rescued by Pulseman) to stand up against the evil intentions of Dr. Waruyama. This game was only released in Japan, but there is an English "patch" available that turns the subtitles into English, and the menus are in English as well.

!!This game includes examples of:
* FinishingMove: If Pulseman is electrically charged, he can use either "Slash Arrow" to destroy enemies at a distance, or turn himself into a ball of lightning and charge around the room in a move called "Volteccer".
* TheHero: Pulseman.
* IntrepidReporter: Lisa Hatfield, a beautiful woman and competent reporter who provides news on Pulseman's adventures.
* LargeHam: Dr. Waruyama comes off as this when you hear his voice clips, all of which are in English despite this being a Japanese game. For example: "Water will destroy Pulseman!"
* LoveInterest: Beatrice.
* MirrorMatch: Veil, described under The Rival below, fights like a copy of Pulseman, complete with his own Volteccer attack.
* TheRival: Veil, the C-Life form that Dr. Waruyama creates to oppose Pulseman (although Veil, unlike Pulseman, is fully C-Life and can only "substantiate" in the real world thanks to Dr. Waruyama's EUREKA system). In the game, Veil is the Stage 5 boss.
* [[TakeOverTheWorld Take Over The Galaxy]]: Dr. Waruyama's goal.
* WarmupBoss: The boss of Stage 1 is just a random criminal from the Galaxy Gang. His goal is certainly heinous enough; he wants to control people using electromagnetic waves from the TV station. But he's easily beaten: Pulseman first has to go into the computer system and defeat a giant floating wireframe hand (which only attacks by moving around and punching through blocks), but then he simply comes out and slashes the criminal's computer, creating explosions that defeat the criminal.
* WeaksauceWeakness: If Pulseman enters water, he can no longer use Volteccer, Slash Arorw, or even use his basic electric slash (though contrary to Dr. Waruyama's hammy voice acting, water will not actually ''destroy'' Pulseman, but it's pretty dang inconvenient anyway).
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: It is never explained what became of either Dr. Shakuei Yoshiyama or his C-Life wife after Pulseman was born.
