Mystical Fighter (JP: Maou Renjishi, or "Demon King Renjishi") is a side-scrolling brawler on the Sega Genesis with a Japanese mythology theme, integrating characters from kabuki theater. The game's two protagonists are lion dancers, which is what the Japanese title refers to by Renjishi: a famous kabuki dance involving two lions.
The magic/scroll system is reminiscent of the Golden Axe games, in that the player will spend all currently held scrolls when using magic but can produce greater effects with a larger stockpile. Players can also search the background of stages for hidden entrances, which leads to bonus areas with extra scrolls/health to collect.
