* AWinnerIsYou:
** A mild case with the first arcade game, which just had a short text message congratulating you on saving whichever DistressedDude appeared in your region; not a great ending, but also not too out of the ordinary for the time.
** The NES port of the first game, on the other hand, has one of the more notorious 8-bit endings out there. You defeat the final boss (which, to the port's credit, is a much more worthy final battle than the arcade original), then the game rewards you with the following message:
-->YOU HAVE ACCOMPLISHED THE MISSION. YOU ARE THE VERY PREVAILER THAT PROTECT RIGHT AND JUSTICE. I WOULD EXPRESS MY SINCERE. THANKS TO YOU. TAKE GOOD REST! -GENERAL KAWASAKI
** The second NES game practically qualifies as having NoEnding; after you defeat the final boss, the game immediately cuts to a very abbreviated staff list, then after ten seconds or so kicks you back to the title screen.

This classic ShootEmUp by SNK featured two ''{{Rambo}}''-esque commandos, Ralf Jones and Clark Still[[note]]who for some reason, were renamed "Paul" and "Vince" in the U.S. versions until their presence in ''VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters'' series[[/note]], who fight their way through hordes of troops, tanks, mines and helicopters to reach the village of Ikari. The arcade game featured a rotary joystick, which could be turned to have the hero fire in eight directions, while moving in any direction the player likes.

Though the series itself died, it's heroes live on: Ralf and Clark themselves eventually got a redesign and were included in the then-MassiveMultiplayerCrossover ''VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters '94''. They've stayed on that series as recurring characters, then in 2006, they returned to their Run-n-Gun roots when they joined the ''VideoGame/MetalSlug'' series.

Two direct sequels, ''Victory Road'', where our heroes are TrappedInAnotherWorld, and ''Ikari III: The Rescue'', where they were sent on a mission to rescue the president's daughter, were developed, but neither caught on as the original game did.

* CheatCode: In the NES version of Ikari Warriors, you could press ABBA after dying to resurrect yourself. This could result in game breaking though as you spawned where you died which occasionally meant you might spawn inside a building sprite and be unable to escape or die.

** Ralf and Clark's commander, General Kawasaki, was renamed Colonel Cook in the US arcade version. General Kawasaki was named after Eikichi Kawasaki, the founder and president of SNK, while Colonel Cook was named after Leland Cook, the co-founder of Tradewest, which distributed the game in the US.
