Hell Fighter details the time when a black belt got an endless supply of throwing darts and started attacking skeletons, hopping ghosts, and blue devils wearing white thongs, all while dying in one hit and breaking brick blocks like Mario.

Accessing this message is similar to accessing Guan-Her Chern's name. At the Sachen logo screen, hold A + B + Select on Controller 1 and A + B on Controller 2. Keep holding the buttons until the Sachen logo stops moving, and release every button except Select. While holding Select, press A, B on Controller 1, A, B on Controller 2, Up, Left, Down, Right, Start, Start, Start, Start, Start, Start, Start, Start, Start, Start on Controller 1, and then any other button. A scrolling message reading 蔡進茂, or Cai Jinmao, will then appear - but unlike Guan-her Chern, no one of this name appears in the game's credits.
