Punch-Out!! Discussion (Nintendo NES) [game]
8.73/10 from 20 user ratings

Welcome to the official discussion thread for Punch-Out!! on the NES!

To start, please add this game to your log, add it to your collection (if applicable), and (when you are ready) rate it using the link above!

After Mike Tyson was put away for rape, Mike Tyson's Punch Out!! was rereleased as Punch Out!! featuring Mr. Dream. I'm sure there are lengthy articles on the internet about whether Little Mac fighting Mike Tyson is canon or not.

Just bought for $.30. I've been playing this game for over 20 years but I've never gotten that far and now that I have it on Wii U and can easily play it both on TV and in bed, I'm going to finally take it down. I'd prefer to face Mike Tyson over Mr. Dream, but what are you gonna do.

After I'm done, I have Super Punch Out! and Punch Out! Wii, neither of which I've touched at all, ready to go.

Get down with your bad self. It took me a long time to tackle Iron Mike, but it was oh so satisfying when I finally did.

@Jargon I keep intending to finish this game too, and never do. Maybe now is the time?

I doubt it.

I forgot that it came out today. I beat Tyson once as a kid, and man it was tough. I'll definitely pick this up and try to knock out Mr. Dream. Save states will help a ton.

I think I beat Mike Tyson ONCE. Or maybe my friend did. I can't remember.

I'll be downloading this bad boy later. I've never finished a Punch-Out game, so we'll see how this goes.


I don't like the idea of abusing save states to finish a game. In my mind I feel like I've cheated, and can't say I've "truly" beat a game. Am I weird?
Posted: 03/20/13, 20:44:33
No, and I don't either...but this is a game I absolutely couldn't beat without them today. When I was ten and had all kinds of free time, sure. Heck, I beat Final Fantasy (NES) with four White Mages when I was twelve. I wouldn't have that kind of patience today.

So yeah...I'll just save state after fights if I have to, but I try not to abuse it. Still, Nintendo built it in, so it's not like I'm cheating ala Game Genie or something like that.

You can save (via password) after every 3 or 4 fights, right? Or is there a limited number of continues?
Posted: 03/20/13, 20:52:42

You get three continues, and the game keeps track of those continues via password. And yeah, it gives you a password every time you complete a circuit.

You can just reuse the passcodes. I used to have both the final circuit and Tyson's code memorized, but not anymore.

Name Code

Major Circuit 005 737 5423
World Circuit 777 807 3454
Super Macho Man 940 861 8538
Mike Tyson/Mr. Dream 007 373 5963
Another World Circuit 135 792 4680
Busy signal 800 422 2602 Nintendo's old customer service number!
See the credits 106 113 0120 Hold Select button and press A button+B button after entering the code.

Oh I know you can re-use passwords, it was more of a "if I used a continue in this circuit then finished it, the password would change to reflect my record and how many continues I had left" type thing.

What a horrible game.
Posted: 03/21/13, 00:58:42
Man, now I remember why I never beat this game. It gets really hard on the third circuit! After making short work of Piston Honda the first time, he completely wrecks me the second time.

On an unrelated note, I'm thinking of setting the Star punch to Y. More accessible than Start.
Posted: 03/21/13, 04:43:07
Save states will be a huge, huge plus for me. I probably won't beat it anyway, but at least it's more accessible now!
Posted: 03/21/13, 05:03:24
I'll probably end up buying this since it's only 30 cents. I already own the Mike Tyson cart and have it on Wii VC. But for 30 cents I think it's worth it for the save states. I can handle Piston Honda, it's that Soda Popinski that gives me trouble and I'm tired of fighting Honda just to get to Soda Popinski every time I lose to him.

Just blasted through the first two circuits undefeated (though Bald Bull came close to taking me down.)

Now comes the fun part. The furthest that I have ever gotten is I believe... Super Macho Man? Or was it Mr. Sandman? I forget.
Posted: 03/21/13, 06:56:20
C'mon, you guys can take down Tyson! It's one of the greatest achievements on the NES.

Heck, if you can spend a couple hours grinding in an RPG, you can do the same to practice on Iron Mike. It shouldn't take longer than that, at least.
Posted: 03/21/13, 16:20:36

Super Macho Man was the last fight before Mr. Dream. Mr. Sandman is before him, but that's a much harder fight from what I remember.
Posted: 03/21/13, 16:25:49
Thy should've put Mike Tyson in the Wii version. He's had kind of a resurgence with the Hangover and other things.
Posted: 03/21/13, 16:40:59

Presumbly they'd have to pay him again. And he's still not exactly family friendly.
