    Kabuki Warriors (known in Japan as Zan Kabuki) is a historical-fantasy 3D weapon-based fighting game developed by Genki (in conjunction with LightWeight) and published by Crave for the Xbox in North America on November 19, 2001. It was later published in Japan by Genki on February 28, 2002.

    The game features a heavy kabuki theater theme, as players control kabuki actors fake-fighting on stage in kabuki theaters. The game is known for its use of a single standard attack button and a "performance meter" which shows how much they are "winning the crowd" (increasing the amount of money earned in Tour Mode).

    The game's signature feature is its Tour Mode: a campaign mode where up to four players play through a series of three-on-three matches with their troupe of actors as they make their way across ancient Japan (from Edo to Kyoto) and earn money (which can be used to navigate the world faster). The winner of each match can force a trade with the losing team, potentially gaining better warriors to help tackle tougher teams.


    In Tour Mode, players start with three Shirokos in their troupe.

    • Sadakuro
    • Gonroku
    • Danjo
    • Sukeroku
    • Kikunosuke
    • Tadanobu
    • Goro
    • Ukon (has an alternate character, named "Sakon")
    • Shiroko (common)
    • Haiko (common)
    • Kuroko (common)
    • Kagekiyo
