Fighter's History Dynamite (known in Europe as Karnov's Revenge) is a 2D fighting game developed and released by Data East for arcades (running Neo Geo MVS hardware) in 1994.

It is the sequel to the 1993 arcade game Fighter's History (infamous for bringing Data East into court for being identical to Capcom's Street Fighter II), revamping the original's gameplay by adding more speed, new mechanics, two new characters (with playable bosses), and secret special moves.

The game was later released on April 28, 1994 for the home Neo Geo consoles (in Japan and Europe only) and the Neo Geo CD (in Japan only). It was ported to the Sega Saturn (in Japan only) on July 4, 1997, adding new control options and the option for an arranged soundtrack. The original game was later released for the Wii (via the Wii Virtual Console) on June 8, 2010 (for Japan) and December 27, 2010 (for North America) and for the Zeebo on April 23, 2010.

Much of the game's assets were reused for the Japanese-exclusive Super Famicom spin-off, Fighter's History: Mizoguchi Kiki Ippatsu!!


All of the characters from the original Fighter's History make a return, all with new special moves (including secret, powerful moves). While the character graphics were slightly modified for the new Neo Geo hardware, Karnov was the only character to receive entirely-new graphics. The bosses of the previous game (Clown and Karnov) are now playable.
