Added DiffLines:

* CriticalHit: Occasionally your attack will land on enemies with WrittenSoundEffect "SLASH!" or "CRASH!", which will deal great damage on them (and is usually a fatal blow on most normal enemies).


Added DiffLines:

* LargeHam: The voice acting is generally this. Notable one is this speech from Christopher every time he gets up after knock down:
-->'''Christopher''': You caught me off guard!

''Night Slashers'' is 1993 [[UsefulNotes/ArcadeGame arcade]] [[BeatEmUp beat 'em up]] developed by Creator/DataEast, and it's notable for two reasons: 1) It's one of the few beat 'em ups that deliberately utilize campy horror tropes, featuring all-favorite monsters such as zombies, werewolves, and psychotic killers. 2) Although beat 'em ups are never far from violence and blood, ''Night Slashers'' is surprisingly graphic, not afraid to show intestines spurting out as the enemies fall down. These made ''Night Slashers'' a class of its own, and became one of the most sought Data East games after years.

It's been three months since the city became overrun by monsters, mutants and the walking dead. With armies overwhelmed and supplies running low, it seems the humans are running out of hope... It's only up to three brave hunters to stop this madness once and for all.

* BalancePowerSkillGimmick: Christopher Smith is JackOfAllStats, Jake Hunter is MightyGlacier, and Zhao Hong Hua is FragileSpeedster.
* {{Bowdlerise}}: For those not too fond of the gore, ''Night Slashers'' offers optional dipswitch setting to replace them with tamer version, which paints the blood to green and simplifies the gory animation.
* CarFu: The first game opens up with the gang storming into a horde of zombies.
* TitleDrop: The opening during the demo.
-->'''Hunters''': It's safe in here. Leave the rest to us!
