The Genie Family
(Was originally in the game and got removed from the US release)

The Genie Family is about the adventures of a family of Genies.

A Genie and his daughter Akubi reside inside the bottle, an old bottle has found its way to a modern family. It is owned by a child named Kan. What he is unaware of when he finds the bottle is that whenever anyone sneezes, the Genie is brought out and must grant the wish of whoever sneezed. His daughter must do the same when anyone yawns. Getting these wishes granted may not be a good thing though; the Genie is extremely clumsy and usually messes up whatever wish he grants. Akubi is more capable than her father, but she’s mischievous and likes to twist the words and meaning of anyone’s wishes so that something bad usually comes of it.

The Father, Hakushon Daima?, joins the Tatsunoko cast in Tatsunoko vs Capcom, scaring the crap out of anyone who fights against him.

  1. Wow, so I DO know characters of this game! Battle of the Planets and Crazy Genie, as they’re known down here in Brazil.

  2. WHAAT?! They include these I’ve never heard of but leave out several that CAN fight easily without much help. The Samurai Pizza Cats would like a word with you Tatsunoko…

  3. Wow!!!! Thanks for the post Infendo. I’m a huge Street Fighter fan and love the Capcom Vs. series games. I will be getting this game and my only wish was that I knew more about the Tatsunoko characters. So to whoever wrote this one, You are mega dragon punch awesome!!!!!!

  4. Zachs, afraid it’s not that simple. Kyatto Ninden Teyandee was a joint effort, and the licensing for it is a mess, it was sadly never going to happen, same deal with Macross.

  5. Amazingly, licensing issues have actually worked in /my/ favor here as well, as I hate that Genie with the fury of a thousand Foreman grills and he’s been axed for local release, hurrah!

    Also thanks infendo, there were a couple here I wasn’t familiar with (polymar, yatterman & karas).

  6. Whoa! Great post, Will. I know stuff now.

  7. great post you filled in the gaps of the unknown characters for me. all i have to say though is i will never switch from karas if he moves like in the movie how can he be beat??? well maybe the golden zippo guy too

  8. Do they have the same guy singing all the intros or what?
