Video Game: Shaq Fu
Shaq-Fu is a Fighting Game released in 1994. It was developed by Delphine Software International and published by Electronic Arts.

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 Big Bad Sett Ra, or else he will Take Over the World. 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 note , mainly because of a ridiculous plot and the Hitbox Dissonance. The Angry Video Game Nerd does a review on it in Part 2 of his "Yet Another Christmas Carol" episode, and there's even a website dedicated to finding all copies of the game and destroying them And another dedicated to finding all copies of the game and saving them.

An interview with Shaq himself at the 2014 CES show in Las Vegas has has him confirm that a Shaq Fu 2 is in the works. Here's the link to the IndieGoGoPage, and the first trailer here.
