This ending is accessed if you fail to defeat Robot Y in Round 7 (A) before the bombs detonate.
We didn't manage to defeat him in time.
It's possible Adam found and defused the bombs.
But he didn't know where they were, Axel.
You may have defeated me, but I won't die alone! Sadly, you will not witness the result of my efforts.
He has activated the self-destruct sequence.
We've go to get out of here. Now.
We can't let Mr. X beat us now. Look for a way out everybody.
I can't find a way out- all of the doors are locked. Axel. Skate. Zan. What are we going to do?
Gulp. I think we've had it.
Hey, little brother. You don't think I'd let you die, do you?
Adam. Are we glad to see you. Get us out of here, fast.
A small animation then shows the factory exploding and the team flying back to the city.
After that the text below scrolls past over a black background (in Bare Knuckle III the city picture below is shown):
The Syndicate's headquarters and robot factory were destroyed in the explosion and the team managed to escape in Adam's helicopter.
But Mr. X succeeded in leaving his mark on the city.
The destructive force of the bomb explosions killed many people and wrecked many buildings.
It will take a very long time to repair the damage caused to the fabric of the city and the confidence of those citizens who trusted the forces of good to look after them.

This ending is accessed if you defeat Robot Y in Round 7 (A) before the bombs detonate, and is the full ending to the game.
I'm dying. Please help me.
Are you kidding?
Well if I die, you die. Good-bye.
This guy never gives up. Let's get out of here.
This place is going to blow up.
He has activated the self destruct sequence. We must hurry or we will die.
I can't find a way out- all the doors are locked. Axel. Skate. Zan. What are we going to do?
Gulp. I think we've had it.
Hey, little brother. You don't think I'd let you die, do you?
Adam. Are we glad to see you. Get us out of here, fast.
A small animation then shows the robot factory exploding and the team flying back to the city.
After that the text below scrolls past over a picture of the team:
The Syndicate's headquarters and robot factory were destroyed in the explosion.
Using Adam's police helicopter, the team managed to locate and defuse all the bombs planted by Mr. X.
Dr. Dahm informed the police of all the city officials who had been kidnapped wherupon their robot duplicates were destroyed and the real officials returned to their posts.
Dr. Dahm was placed in an asylum where he is said to be doing well.
Dr. Zan was pardoned by the city for his role in the overthrow of the Syndicate.
The team spent some time together in the city and then went their seperate ways.

Finally the end credits appear, which include pictures of what happens to each of the characters. Check out the cameo by Max in the final picture.

 



This ending is accessed if you fail to save the Chief of Police but complete Round 7 (B).
You've been defeated, you worm. Now tell us where to find the real Mr. X.
I will never tell you.
Mr. X! Listen to me, wherever you are. I will not allow your sick and evil mind to rule the city. I will find you and I will destroy you.
The scene then moves to a darkened room, where Mr. X is watching the events at City Hall. In his anger, he crushes a glass in his hand and the words "The End?" appear...

This ending is only seen in Western versions of the game, accessed after you defeat Robot X on Easy Mode.
All that effort and you only defeated my stand-in. You have not discovered the location of my hostage and while I have him, Axel is thought to be a criminal. You play this game like a beginner. You'll have to do better than this to defeat Mr. X.
We must try harder, friends. We can't let this maniac take control of the city.
The scene then moves to a mysterious darkened room, where Mr. X is watching the events unfold on a screen. In his anger, he crushes a glass in his hand and the words "The End?" appear...
