Go To

Rumble Pack (Not to be confused with the Nintendo 64 add-on.) is a Freeware indie Fighting Game made by Studio Egg using M.U.G.E.N. The main aspect of the game is the Radix system, which allows players to select one of three different fighting styles for each character. The game has a cast of strange characters including a girl who fights with her hair, an anthropomorphic chicken who controls fire and wields dual knives, a vampire queen and more.


Tropes present in Rumble Pack:

  • Absolute Cleavage: Nadia's dress.
  • Batter Up!: Roy uses a branch as a makeshift baseball bat.
  • Bloody Murder: Charlotte's Blood Orb, Blood Strike, Blood Slash and Blood Storm attacks.
  • Cute Monster Girl: Pearl may have bright pink skin, pointy ears and two toes on her feet, but she is otherwise attractive.
  • Difficult, but Awesome: Binary style requires more skill to use, but mastering it allows players to do massive combos and use cinematic Overdrive attacks.
  • Funny Animal: Oliver and Badcat are antropomorphic cats, MC Supercut and Captain Jack are antropomorphic roosters.
  • Gainaxing: Charlotte, Nadia and Tsukiko have this.
  • Gratuitous German: MC Supercut's attacks have german names, and he calls his attacks.

  • Shock and Awe: Nadia fights with electric attacks and magnetic bracelets.
  • Stripperiffic: Pearl's "clothing" (If it can be called that) consists of magenta strips that barely cover her naughty bits.
  • Suspiciously Similar Song: The Elbe Dresden Night stage's background music is based off the theme from 12 Monkeys.
  • Theme Song Power Up: MC Supercut's Brennen Ultimatum causes the Japanese Dragon Ball Z theme to play.
  • Totally Radical: Or the more modern equivalent, swag, which is used on the combo counter.
  • Whip It Good: Sofie and Taeko have a whip. Tsukiko's hair could also count.
