Video Game: Gundam Wing Endless Duel
Gundam Wing: Endless Duel was a Fighting Game developed by Natsume and released for the Super Famicom in 1996 by Bandai. It was quite a technical achievement for the time as it included vertical scrolling (something that wouldn't be a standard for fighting games on home consoles for a few more years). Each player takes on the role of one of the various Gundams (or Tallgeese, Mercurius or Vayeate, or Epyon through a button code.)Though Endless Duel never left Japan, the same engine was used for another mecha-based SNES fighter, Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers: The Fighting Edition.
Gundam Wing Endless Duel contains the following tropes:
- Action Girl: Lady Une, Lucrezia Noin
- Cheat Code: Pressing LLLLRRRRLRLRLRLR while highlighting Tallgeese in vs. mode or trial mode allows you to play as Epyon.
- Final Boss: Epyon.
- Humongous Mecha: This is Gundam after all.
- SNK Boss: Epyon.
- Unwinnable by Design: Trial Mode will never end no matter how many fights you win...though the win counter stops at 99
