    So this time instead of MAME I opted for playing on my Rygar arcade (PCB) machine.

    Bank 2 dipswitches set to 100,000 extra life only (dipswitches 1 & 2 on) and Difficult1 setting (dipswitch 5 on)

    Difficult 1 (PCB) = Normal (MAME) as Mame doesn't follow the PCB naming conventions (it should have)

    Rygar is still a hero. Without it, there would be no game. And most people would think Rygar is who you play in the game. Thanks for pointing it out so that now everyone knows. "Click bait" ... :)

    I remember hogging this game in the 80's with my 15 yo friend, a 2-player game would last about 1.5-2hrs on 40 cents. We even hide one of the other players bike at school so we could get to the machine first after school finished... hahaha :)

    The operator turned the game up to the maximum setting (or one pretty high anyway) to try get more money from the game but that just made the enemies come faster and made us better when we hit a machine on the normal setting.

    I swear back then we probably had the TG records but didn't know what TG was.

    35 years later and I finally bought an original Rygar PCB and 80's upright cabinet. Now I relive my childhood every day.

    Love it. Amazing game, the graphics, the sound, the game mechanics were all WAY ahead of it's time and one great adventure. My favourite game of all time.

    Only the side art to go and one day... a new control panel with proper graphics.

    What.. !! I wonder if you did not see the End of Rygar Playstation2 version where we come to know about Rygar that his real name is "CAESARION" And he is Son of " CLEOPATRA".. !!

    That is definitely not the Rygar arcade story. Each game probably has it’s own storyline. I wonder what all the others were like NES. Might go looking tomorrow online.

    Ok wow, the story is extremely confusing. When we were kids we always assumed the warrior was Rygar. In the original Japanese version, Ligar and Rygar are one and the same... but... it seems that in the exported version they refer to the warrior as Rygar and then after that in new games. It does make more sense that the game should be named after the warrior.

    Ao I guess depending on which version and how you translate the original story, Rygar is either the evil Ligar boss or the warrior.

    What the sense is working here.. The game should have the name of Hero not the Villon.. The Latest version of Rygar PS2's story of game i like it...

    Ok in the arcade manual for America it definitely says the warriors name is ‘Rygar’

    But... the original Japanese version he is ‘The warrior of Argus’ and the evil boss is Ligar (Rygar) so for the MAME US version he is definitely called ‘Rygar’.

    Found this...

    “It is interesting to notice that the original Japanese title for the game is Argus no Senshi which can be translated as "The Argus Warrior". Maybe I'm looking too much into this, but in the Japanese manual, the bad guy is called ライガー(Raigā, which was translated as "Ligar" in the American version). So, it seems that the name Rygar is in reality the name of the evil baddy in the game, and not the name of the warrior controlled by the player who is always referenced as Senshi (warrior) in the Japanese manual. Sounds like yet another name that got 'lost in translation'.
