Double Dragon II Characters
This is a list of characters that appear in the NES/Famicom versions of Double Dragon II: The Revenge. The list also applies to the PC Engine version of Double Dragon II, except for the fact that the Right Arm and Ninja sub-bosses are missing in that version (except in the game's hidden sprite view mode). However, the PCE version has a brief appearance by Big Boss Willy near the end of the game, which more than makes up for it. Most of the enemies' info here (including their names) are taken from the Japanese Famicom version's and PC Engine version's manual, while information about the main characters (including the Phantom Doubles and the Last Boss) are taken from several facts presented in the game and Japanese manual.
