The plot is as follows: Long ago, in a parallel dimension known as the Second World, ruled a powerful sorcerer known as [[BigBad Sett Ra]]. Planning to conquer Earth, he created a loyal servant from his own shadow, Beast, who murdered the Pharaoh, allowing Sett Ra to take his place. The Pharaoh's son, however, was not deceived, and sought the help of a powerful group of wizards, who managed to banish Sett Ra back to the Second World, weakened and imprisoned. A thousand years later, Beast finally managed to free his master from imprisonment ; to put an end to his banishment, Sett Ra must now perform a ritual upon the Pharaoh's descendant, a child by the name of Nezu.

On Earth, Shaquille O'Neal is doing some sightseeing in Tokyo, as he is to compete in a basketball game for a charity event later that night, when he decides to stop by a kung-fu dojo. Inside, he meets an old martial artist named Leotsu, who informs him that he is the Chosen One destined to defeat Sett Ra. Shaq thus enters a portal to the Second World, in the goal of defeating Sett's battalion of warriors and rescuing Nezu.

The plot is as follows: Shaquille O'Neal heads to a basketball game in Tokyo for a charity event and decides to stop in a gift store. A wise old man notices him and tells O'Neal it's his destiny to save his grandson from the BigBad Sett Ra, or else he will TakeOverTheWorld. To do so, O'Neal must step through the mirror and enter the dimension known as the Second World.

''Shaq-Fu'' is frequently seen in "Worst Games of All Time" lists, mainly because of a [[ExcusePlot ridiculous plot]] and the HitboxDissonance. WebVideo/TheAngryVideoGameNerd does a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l7XIbwtMl4Y review]] on it in Part 2 of his "YetAnotherChristmasCarol" episode, and [[http://www.shaqfu.com there's even a website dedicated to finding all copies of the game and destroying them]] [[http://www.saveshaqfu.com/ And another dedicated to finding all copies of the game and saving them]].
