Round Select, Extra Lives & New Difficulty SettingsHighlight Options on the menu screen. Hold A+B on Controller 2 and press Start on Controller 1. The Options screen now includes round select, the ability to start with up to 9 lives, and access to the secret Very Easy and Mania difficulty settings. Very Easy is pointless, as you will walk through the game in 5 minutes. Mania however, is great. The number of enemies jumps up, and they are now very intelligent and strong. It is almost impossible to complete the game from the start on this setting but it is very fun for anyone who finds the game too easy.
Note: This cheat is displayed during the ending when you beat the game on Hardest.
Play same characterOn the title screen hold Right+B on Controller 1 and Left+A on Controller 2. Press C on Controller 2 and hold until the menu appears. You will now be able to choose the same character in 2 Player mode.
Number of KOsSmall tip - on the high score screen press A to reveal how many punks you took out.
In Bare Knuckle II you can view your number of KOs at any time by pausing the game and pressing A. Cheers to Turbokiller for this.
10,000 Point Bonus PunksKilling certain punks within the game gives you a 10,000 points bonus. Up until now it was unknown exactly which punks gave these bonuses. I've discovered which punks do by looking in the ROM. Here's how it works: if you look at the punk names in the ROM, you will notice that all the punk clones are placed together eg. all the Galsias' names are found next to each other. Certain punks are listed at the end of the names away from their clones; these are the bonus punks.
Below is a list of where to find the punks in question, compiled by Anton Berglin:
