Alex Kidd:
Alex Kidd is a videogame character created by Sega. Alex Kidd appears to be an ape-like boy with huge ears, a red jumpsuit, and huge fists. In the original game you find out that he's an orphan who lives on the planet Aries (aka Miracle World) on a mountain. There he trains the so-called "Shellcore Technique" which allows him to alter the size and hardship of his fists by sheer force of will; he then is able to break rocks with his bare fists. Alex Kidd was the protagonist of several different games on many different consoles. His popularity was at its peak when the first game - Alex Kidd in Miracle World - was released in 1986. For a short while he served as an unofficial mascot for the Sega Corporation; as most of you might know, he was later replaced by Sonic.

During the rock-paper-scissors game, the loser in the censored International version is hit by a huge weight. In the Japanese version, however, the loser loses his clothes.
