GraphicsIcon.png This game has unused graphics.
DebugIcon.png This game has debugging material.
RegionIcon.png This game has regional differences.

Brawl Brothers is the sequel to Rival Turf! ...in Japan, anyway. For whatever reason, Jaleco decided that Jack Flak and Oozie Nelson weren't cool enough to star in their own sequel in the US, and replaced them with a couple of identical clones named Hack and Slash.

Color Test

Taste the rainbow~

While the Jaleco logo is fading in or out, press any button, then press Down eight times. A color test screen will appear after the logo fades out. Press Start to exit the color test and proceed to the title screen.

Dieter Icon

Vant to tach my icon?
An unused Vs. Mode win icon of final boss Dieter. He actually can be played in any mode by using the Pro Action Replay code 7E09200A, but this may suggest that he was only to be playable in Vs. Mode. Interestingly, if you use Dieter in Vs. Mode, this icon still isn't used, instead using Hack's icon.

To do:
Game Genie code? That one by Hackwiz (DC6C-3F95) doesn't work...

Other changes

The US version, on top of having a completely different story, also removed the credits and the character introduction featured in the attract mode. While the story is only told through short dialogues before and after boss encounters, it was heavily changed for the USA version, such as having the last boss ask about "having time to get his nails done" after you defeat him. In addition, the Drain (Stage 3) and the Airshed (Stage 9), while linear in the Japanese version, were changed to mazes with multiple paths and dead ends before you could reach the exit. Also, the names of two of the main characters were changed from Rick Norton and Douglas Bild to Hack and Slash for the US version.
