Punch-Out!! Secret Discovered After 29 Years

Its been nearly three decades since the last secret in Mike Tyson’s Punch-Out!!, otherwise known as simply Punch-Out!!, was discovered and yet over the past few days a brand new secret has been discovered.

Discovered by reddit user midwesternhousewives the game offers a clue of when to attack honda in order to achieve a one punch knockout. It’s been known for decades that honda could be knocked out within a single punch but during this time frame players had to guess, or memorise, honda’s movements in order to pull it offer however with this new visual aid players are able to knock out honda each and every time.


The secret is that a spectator in the background, who has a beard, remains static throughout the entire match however when honda is about to pull his special move the bearded man ducks and thus this is the players cue to dodge the attack and strike the opponent.

As midwesternhousewives discovered this secret can be done on every round of the match and so far has had a 100% success rate. Ironically enough its not the only visual clue in the game; as a spectator in the audience who flashes his camera during a final fight is another visual aid to help the player in defeating a strong opponent.

In any event seeing this new secret has inspired us to go out and play the game; of which we can do on the Retron 5 console.
