A side-scrolling BeatEmUp by Creator/DataEast for the UsefulNotes/{{arcade|Game}}s and ported to the NintendoEntertainmentSystem. The plot, [[ExcusePlot such as it is]], goes as follows: There are rampant ninja-related crimes these days, and the White House is no exception. A guy who [[Creator/ArnoldSchwarzenegger looks like he could be]] VideoGame/DukeNukem's uncle informs you that the President has been kidnapped by {{ninja}}s, and asks you if you are a bad enough dude to rescue the President. The correct answer is to [[ConservationOfNinjutsu beat up an army of ninja]], and shout "I'M BAD!!!", then repeat until the President is rescued. Said President thanks you for your troubles, and suggests burgers for lunch. That's the whole plot.

[[http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/pinstripegames/bad-dudes-2 There was a crowdfunding campaign for a sequel.]] (Un)fortunately, it never reached its funding goals.
