|First appearance||Arm Wrestling (1985)|
Kabuki is the second opponent encountered in the Arm Wrestling arcade game, a spin-off of the Punch-Out!! series. He is a sumo wrestler from Japan, and based on his name and appearance he is also involved in kabuki, a classical Japanese dance drama.
Kabuki bears a striking similarity to Street Fighter's E. Honda, and pre-dates the character by 6 years.
When he raises his left hand, he will try to put all his weight into his arm, if he does this too many times he will win.
