The Twisted Tales of Spike McFang (Chou Makai Taisen Dorabochan in Japan) is a video game which was released for the Super NES, developed by Red Company and published by Naxat Soft. It was published by Bullet-Proof Software in North America. The game is the sequel of a TurboGrafx-16 game titled Makai Prince Dorabochan.

The game follows the adventures of a young vampire, the title character Spike McFang, who is set to battle with the evil zombie general Von Hessler, who attempts to invade his parents' and his friend Camelia's kingdoms. The game plays from a top-down perspective; the player encounters several enemies in the game and by defeating them, can gain experience points and increase his level. Spike's main weapons are his cape, that attacks in a short range (though Spike can extend its range at the risk of dizzying himself for a short time) and his hat, which can be thrown like a boomerang. He is also able to utilize magical cards with a wide variety of special effects, including, but not limited to:

  • Invisibility
  • Summoning angels and bats
  • Turning all foes into small, furry animals
  • Grabbing a balloon and floating to safety.
  • Elemental Attacks
  • Powered up partner
  • Recovering Health

The American release was edited to be more family friendly, replacing Spike's penchant for eating creatures' hearts to regain health with a hunger for tomatoes.
