Bravoman, known in Japan as Chouzetsu Rinjin Beraboh Man (超絶倫人 ベラボーマン, lit. "Transcendental Ethical Man: Beraboh Man"?), sometimes referred to as Berabow Man is a 1988 platformer/beat-em-up hybrid arcade game developed and released by Namco for the arcades only in Japan. It was later ported to the NEC TurboGrafx-16 in 1990. This version was also released outside of Japan simply as Bravoman. In 2007, this same version was released on the Wii Virtual Console.
The game described by Namco themselves as a "comical action game", which takes a light and humorous approach to an otherwise trite theme, by using a lot of humorous elements, both graphics, plot and sound-wise, usually ridiculing or parodying stereotypical elements of Japanese tokusatsu and videogames, in a manner similar to the Konami game series Parodius.
The plot starts when Arnold (known in Japan as Hitoshi Nakamura (中村 仁, Nakamura Hitoshi?)), a typical insurance company salaryman (who is also a caricature of Namco's founder, Masaya Nakamura) encounters an alien name Alpha Man (α遊星人) from Planet Alpha (misspelled as "Alfa" in the English TurboGrafx-16 version). The alien tells Arnold that an evil scientist named Dr. Bomb (known in Japan as Dr. Bakuda (爆田博士, Bakuda-hakase?)) is planning to set an "End the World" weapon. Then the alien gives Arnold an odd metal rod, a fork and a coin, which turns him into Bravoman, a bionic tokusatsu hero who possesses telescopic limbs that can be used to fight against Dr. Bomb and his henchmen.
