''Duck Hunt'' is a shooting game for the NintendoEntertainmentSystem; it came either on its own or as a twofer with ''VideoGame/SuperMarioBros'' (or as a threefer with ''VideoGame/SuperMarioBros'' and ''World Class Track Meet'', though that version is rarer than the others.) The game's concept actually began with a [[http://blog.beforemario.com/2012/09/nintendo-kousenjuu-duck-hunt-1976.html projector-and-light-gun toy]] produced by Creator/{{Nintendo}} before their video game-making days. Eight years later, it was made into the NES game as it's known today.

This game overall is widely remembered for a few reasons. One of the most prominent is that it was a pack-in for most releases of the NintendoEntertainmentSystem, for even more versions than ''Super Mario Bros''. Eventually the two were combined into one cartridge to be the pack-in game. It was also remembered for the Zapper Light Gun that was required to play, being perhaps the most popular light gun created. It set the standard for making home light gun games for ages.

* KillScreen: At Level 100, the ducks glitch around the screen; they're impossible to hit. And the dog thinks it's funny. Sometimes the ducks don't even show up and the dog laughs three or four times in a row. Averted with the clay pigeons that move really slow at that level. Why the duck moves so fast is up to speculation.

* AnthropomorphicShift: The dog goes through this where when first starting ''Duck Hunt'', you see him on all fours while sniffing around for ducks. After you miss a duck, he will snicker at you by standing on his hind paws while putting his front paws to his mouth. And, later in ''Vs. Duck Hunt'', during the bonus game, he hops around like Luigi from ''VideoGame/SuperMarioBros2'' and after you shoot him, he walks and stands on one hind leg while using crutches like a human would before [[WhatTheHellPlayer giving you a quick scolding]].
