    Over the years (!) lots of familiar, vaguely familiar and downright obscure games featuring the wonderful (or not so wonderful?) lady's now known as zako have been discussed. This discussion usually focuses on identification, literal content, different versions (if available) which is then supported by video, screenshots and hopefully fan art.

    Whilst there are have been a reasonable number of games which feature zako in one way or another over the years, they still remain a varied and valuable commodity. Wouldn't it be great if there was one place everyone could use to see every (or almost every zako) in existence, listed by title, systems and criteria, Excel style?

    For example -

    Title: Streets Of Rage / Bare Knuckle
    Systems: Mega Drive, Master System, Game Gear
    Genre: 2D Fighting Sidescroller
    Zako:uniform-dominatrix-escort
    Frequency: Common (or uncommon, or rare criteria)
    Attacks / Attributes: Whip strike, 'fake crouch' move, unique movement & high health
    Notes: Palette swaps by stage, strength and rarity

    Title: Die Hard Arcade / Dynamite Deka
    Systems: Saturn, Arcade, PS2 (Remake)
    Genre: 3D Beat 'Em Up
    Zako: Criminal-thug-punk, jumpsuit-uniform, performer-lingerie
    Frequency: Uncommon
    Attacks / Attributes: Complex, varied and strong attacks including grabs, throws and prone. Use of pistols and knives, clawed variant
    Notes: Taunts frequently (also while player engages other enemies), health regeneration on zako winning prone if would be depleted, zako are arrestable, more zako with 2 players.

    And so on! I hope such a project would be of interest to others. Even if only a small amount is covered, over a long period of time, it's better than nothing. I'm sure there are those of us here who could cover a lot of ground.. Because not only is watching videos and looking at screen shots is good, the unique experiences of meeting these zako in game is something special. Plus there might be the bonus of more exposure, and more fan art!

    Maybe creating a wikia site is more access-able to everyone?

    Nice find! :) This looks like a very nice Zako game! It appears to be all shooting for combat mostly...wish it had hand to hand fighting too. The game has outfit customization too, but looks really limited. Aside from those items, it looks great!

    I watch some gameplay videos and there is a kick option. Not really a hand to hand, but there is always senran kagura series. For me the bad thing is girls disappear too quickly. If this was for pc they would stay much longer and there would be much more enemies.

    Thanks for mentioning senran kagura! I had not seen this one before. I watched some examples on YouTube and like the premise, but the game seems too crazy fast.

    For Banzai Escape, the Zako enemies only appear in two or three levels, and are few and far in-between.
