Punch-Out!! is the twenty-eighth game played by Danny and Arin, and is the one hundredth game played on Game Grumps.

The game was sent into the show by Adam Nelson.

Playthrough[edit | edit source]

Danny plays the game for his first time. He uses his experience with the NES Punch-Out!! to beat his opponents. Though most of his opponents usually beat him first (especially later on), he still manages to come through and beat everyone in Contender Mode. After beating Mr. Sandman, Danny said he was going to stop and practice as he felt that he wasn't ready to take on Title Defense. Both Arin and Danny promised they would come back to Punch Out later on.

14 months later, they kept their word and returned to Punch-Out!! However, Danny found Title Defense more difficult than he expected, and decided to take another break of undeterminable length after defeating the first five opponents.

Danny's frustration with the game lead to Part 16 being one of the shortest videos on the channel lasting only 6 minutes, causing a minor controversy amongst fans.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The series started shortly before Nintendo announced that Punch-Out!! protagonist Little Mac would appear as a playable fighter in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS.
  • The grumps commonly make up delirious sayings for Little Mac when the game focuses on his fatigue, as well as making fun of Doc for his habit of eating candy bars during training and his often unhelpful advice.
  • So far, Danny has only won by Knockout or TKO, and has never had to fall back on winning by Decision.
  • Some of Danny's knowledge of the NES game is used in this playthrough.
  • Although Arin and Danny weren't paying attention, they could have gone to Exhibition to practice the fight with the current opponent as a hologram. This was mentioned in "Dancing King" By Doc when Danny lost to King Hippo.
  • This is one of only a few series that has been brought back after many months of absences, and one of three games that had an episode released over a year after the series initially began. The other games were Mike Tyson's Punch-Out!! and Pokémon FireRed.
  • Once Danny reaches the Title Defense portion of the game, he has a lot of trouble going up against the tougher versions of the boxers right out of the gate with no prior experience fighting their new and improved fighting tatics. He gets defeated by every opponent (including Glass Joe) at least once up to Bear Hugger, causing him to forfeit his championship belt repeatedly.
