The first in the series. The characters are presented with cel-shaded animation, looking almost identical to their manga counterparts.

Kinnikuman Generations / Galactic Wrestling: Featuring Ultimate Muscle (PlayStation 2, April 22, 2004, Bandai)

An expansion of "Kinnikuman Nisei: New Generation vs. Legends". Sold on the 25th Anniversary of Kinnikuman. The Story Mode and Choujin Creation Mode from the first game are removed. Features tag matches and additional characters. The slow loading time and Toshio Furukawa's portrayal of Kinnikuman (replacing Akira Kamiya from the first game) caused the game to disappointment many fans.
