Decap Attack was a weird Platform Game released for Sega Genesis/Megadrive in 1991, and probably the only game in existence which starred a headless mummy. However, it began its life as a totally unrelated Japanese game called Magical Hat Flying Turbo Adventure, based upon the animeMagical Hat. It received a total uplifting before coming to US and Europe, and became a wacky horror adventure set in an island shaped like a human body.The story is, as always, pretty simple: the demon Max D. Cap emerges from the underworld and breaks Body Island into seven parts. Mad ScientistFrank N. Stein creates a headless mummy named Chuck for the sole purpose of trying to defeat Max and rescue the island.Decap Attack was adapted into a long-running comic strip in British magazine Sonic the Comic, which brought the zaniness of the game Up to Eleven.
Cephalothorax: Chuck isn't completely headless, it just doesn't sit above his shoulders; he has eyes and a mouth in his torso. However, there is a powerup that places a skull where the head normally would be, which is thrown when you make a punch.
Chain Reaction Destruction - How are bosses destroyed? By having multiple small red explosions cover their nonexistent body after flashing a lot.
Punny Name - Almost every name in this game is a pun of some sort. Main character is called "Chuck D. Head" ('coz he kills enemies by throwing a head at them!), his creator is named "Frank N. Stein" and the Big Bad is "Max D. Cap". The names of the various locations are all puns on the name of the body part they resemble, such as "Armington", "El Beau (elbow) Island", "Tibuland" and so on.
Skippable Boss - You can avoid the second boss altogether after having found the object, by jumping on certain platforms.
Our Zombies Are Different: Some people call Chuck a zombie, others peg him as a mummy. Regardless he doesn't hunger for human flesh...in fact, he's quite fond of cheese.
Periphery Hatedom - invoked In universe example in the comics. Chuck kept a bunny rabbit, who wrote cutesy stories about himself, locked in a tower so he wouldn't read any more. This backfired, when Chuck finally released him he'd used the time to write hundreds more.
