TRIVIA
 
Released in November 1993.

This game is known in Japan as "Kyukyoku Sentai Dadandarn".

Monster Maulers reflects a Japanese tradition of TV series featuring teams of brightly-suited martial artists called Super Sentai, 'sentai' meaning 'task force' or 'squad'. The best known of these series in the West is 'Kyouryuu Sentai Zyuuranger', which was made into the Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers.

The bosses Brainy, Red Dragon and Moai Head are originally enemies and bosses from the "Gradius"/"Salamander" series, also by Konami.

King Records released a limited-edition soundtrack album for this game (Kyukyoku Sentai Dadandarn - KICA-7627) on 01/01/1994.
