Fist of Fury
Composer Azusa Hara, Hiroaki Yoshida
Released 1988-04-??
Title Origin Translation
Loops Yes

Fist of Fury plays in Bad Dudes in each of the game's stages where you're walking across the ground (1, 3, 4, 6, and 7), as opposed to when you're riding (2, and 5) which play Lightning Speed.


The official title come from the Deco History: Data East Game Music Scene One album where the song is named 怒の鉄拳 (Ika no Tekken) which directly translates to "Iron Fist of Anger," but was probably meant to match the Jackie Chan Kung Fu film, "Fist of Fury (怒りの鉄拳)."
