Bad Dudes, also known as Bad Dudes vs. Dragonninja is a scrolling platform beat-em-up by Data East, originally released in the arcade, but later ported to every major platform of the late 1980s. In the game, the president has been kidnapped by ninjas, and the players, who are martial arts experts, must beat the crap out of seven stages of ninjas, each with a final boss, to rescue the president.

The game's ridiculous plot made the game famous and it appeared in the movies Parenthood and RoboCop 2, as well as having a popular Internet meme. Despite the game's popularity, a sequel was never produced.
