Video Game / Phantom Fighter

Phantom Fighter​ (霊幻道士, Reigen Dōshi?) is a video game released for the Nintendo Entertainment System in 1989 in Japan, and in April 1990 in the United States. The Japanese version is based on Mr. Vampire (Reigen Dōshi being the Japanese title of the film). As a fighting monk, the player must fight through eight towns filled with Kyonshi aka Chinese Vampire(each with a unique town boss). A small selection of items, and a large selection of fighting moves could be used on the enemy.

Tropes present in Phantom Fighter

  • Chinese Vampire: "Kyonshies" are found throughout the game, in all shapes and sizes.
  • Rapid-Fire Fisticuffs: After several power upgrades, you'll be able to attack with multiple punches with the press of a button.
  • Trauma Inn: The temple in every town serves as a healing point, once you get rid of any Kyonshies there.
  • Undead Child: A hidden character that makes the game much more difficult is a baby kyonshi or "Conshi" with a slightly sad back story.
