Kung Fu Chaos (or Kung Fu Panic in Japan) is a 3D third-person platform game developed by Just Add Monsters and published by Microsoft Game Studios. It was released for the Xbox on February 25, 2003 in the U.S.A.
Plot[edit | edit source]
Kung Fu Chaos often breaks the fourth wall. The entire game is about the player controlling a selection of characters making a kung-fu film. The actions of these characters are then processed as films and the player can watch them. Although the game is centered around a classic kung-fu film, it has certain characters and levels that do not belong in a martial arts film (such as a city under attack by aliens).
Characters[edit | edit source]
- Master Sho Yu
- Ninja Fu Hiya
- A parody of the Monkey King from Journey to the West. Became immortal after urinating on the Mountain king's favorite tablecloth.
- A parody of blaxploitation heroes such as Foxy Brown and Cleopatra Jones. Prized possession is Babydoll, her shotgun.
- Xui Tan Sour
- A young female martial artist who seeks to avenge her parents, who were killed by members of a rival circus, parodying the idea that in martial arts films, the hero/heroine is avenging their families death from a rival, often a rival clan..
