King of the Monsters 2 Premise

Three years after the great event, the King of Monsters massacre, three monsters have survived and mutated. Now a new threat has arisen, a powerful alien monster called King Famardy who wants to be the King of Monsters. Players must travel the seven levels to defeat the seven bosses, including King Famardy. Depending on how fast players defeat King Famardy’s remnants, there is a good ending and a bad ending.

There are 7 bosses in the game, one for each level. They are:

  • Huge Keal or Huge Frogger
  • Horn du Out or Eifflelyte 
  • Yam a Mordon or Clawhead 
  • Kili-Kili or Beetle Master 
  • Sack Eyes or Aqua Slug
  • Eat Wow or Lavicus
  • King Famardy or Famardy

King of the Monsters 2 Main Characters

Players have three different playable monsters to choose from. Each one is from the original game, King of the Monsters, but with modified bodies, powers, and names.

  • Super Geon: Geon returns from the first game, now mutated and appearing more dragon-like after consuming the radiated meat of defeated monsters. Super Geon has Sonic Jump, Rapid Growth, and Fire Breathing.
  • Cyber Woo: This cyborg was originally a gorilla, known as Woo, that fought in 1996 to save Japan from rogue monsters. The government later took his brain and put it into a giant cybernetic monkey body to turn him into a living weapon. His three abilities are Woocopter, Transformation where he turns into a gatling gun, and Rocket Arms.
  • Atomic Guy: Astro Guy returns from the first game now more powered up and with a new costume. He is likely the one who has gone through the most amount of changes, going from old scientist to wrestler to an irradiated with almost no intelligence or humanity. His powers are Megaton Thunder and Ki, but he also has several wrestler-fighting moves like dropkicks and backbreakers.

Players can also have two friends join them with other controllers to help fight.
