* BlueOniRedOni: Nick Fury and The Punisher respectively. Fury behaves like a ByTheBookCop who's would rather keep the collateral damage and body count to a minimum if possible. Frank Castle on the other hand is more than happy to blast cannon fodder point blank once [[PerpSweating he's satisfied with any information and leads he's given.]]

Added DiffLines:

* GameGourmet: To heal yourself, you'll come across flan pudding, cheese, pizza (both slices and whole pies), hot dogs, roast chickens, and barbecued ribs.


* DummiedOut: A second bonus stage taking place in an airplane. More info [[http://rq87.flyingomelette.com/RQ/PP/PUN/1.html#Unused Stage here]].

"WAI-YAH!" and Frank and Nick's "MRARAARRRRRUGGH!" when performing their specials.
* MartialArtsUniform: The male karate mooks (Saxon, Hawke and [[Creator/StanLee Yan Lee).Lee]]).

Added DiffLines:

* CastFromHitPoints: Just like ''Final Fight'', pressing both attack and jump performs a "Megacrush" that knocks down everyone around you at the cost of your health. The Punisher does a [[SpinAttack 360 sweep kick]], while Nick Fury [[PistolWhipping swings his holstered gun around himself]]. If performed in mid-air or at low health, however, both characters will instead chuck a grenade as long as they have one left.


Added DiffLines:

* HumanHammerThrow: You can do a [[CastFromHitPoints Megacrush]] while holding an enemy, and the result is this trope.


Added DiffLines:

* PistolWhipping: In a variant of this trope, Nick Fury can wield his holstered pistol as a weapon, swinging it by the belt for his [[CastFromHitPoints Megacrush]] attack.


* NeverFoundTheBody: After defeating the Kingpin, Frank waits for Fury to leave then drops a grenade by the Kingpin's body before destroying his penthouse. The police dug up the rubble but could find the Kingpin anywhere.

The first of many Creator/{{Capcom}} games to be based on a Creator/MarvelComics license, ''The Punisher'' is a ''VideoGame/FinalFight''-like BeatEmUp, in which two players can have ComicBook/ThePunisher team up with S.H.I.E.L.D. agent ComicBook/NickFury. (The two characters are identical in gameplay, though they have different dialogue when played alone.) Originally a 1993 ArcadeGame, a port for the UsefulNotes/SegaGenesis developed by Sculptured Software was released in 1994.

Added DiffLines:

* InCaseOfBossFightBreakGlass: The robot boss has some glass panels in its head but those go first and breaking them is no impediment - you have to literally punch the thing into scrap to win (It somewhat resembles the car-wrecking bonus stage in ''VideoGame/StreetFighterII'' - the thing keeps losing more and more parts as you beat it up.)

Added DiffLines:

* JoustingLance: Available as a throwing weapon that will pierce and knock over anyone in its way without stopping until it hits a wall. You can find it either by itself at random, or in the hands of a destructible suit of armor (mostly found in the Kingpin's building).

* ThouShaltNotKill: NickFury chews out The Punisher quite a bit for cranking up the body count more than necessary.

Added DiffLines:

* GameOverMan: Of a sorts. The Continue screens have at least someone related to Frank or Nick trying to bring them back to life: David "Microchip" Lieberman tries to revive Punisher, whilst Alexander Pierce tries to revive Nick, with an anxious Kathleen Neville watching in the background.
