Codex Gamicus

C-2: Judgement Clay, also known as Clay Fighter 2, is Interplay's 1994 sequel to ClayFighter. This game was not as well received as its predecessor. Its name is a parody of Terminator 2: Judgment Day.


C-2 revolves around the town of Mudville, where the clay meteor crashed in ClayFighter. Learning of the spectacle that took place in "Clayland", the evil Dr. Generic Kiln* flies in on his aircraft containing the residue he collected from the meteor and spreads it to the rest of Mudville in order to create more fighters. He declares himself grand master of Mudville after the fall of N. Boss, the ending boss of the original ClayFighter. He holds the C-2 tournament to see who can become next grandmaster of Mudville.

  • This Character is only mentioned in the booklet and doesn't make a physical appearance until ClayFighter 63 1/3 for Nintendo 64.


Bad Mr Frosty - Frosty, the main character of the original ClayFighter, returns with a new look, wearing a backwards baseball cap instead of a top hat. Just released from prison, where he was incarcerated for beating up Santa Claus, he has a slightly lighter attitude this time around. His arena is the North Pole.

Tiny - Tiny, the champion of the first game, is a dumb musclebound wrestler. He has strong attacks such as the medicine ball. It's worth noting that they simply re-used Tiny's Clayfighter sprite with no changes — all the other returning characters were re-animated for the sequel. His arena is the foyer of a castle.

Blob - Blob is a mass of clay that can turn into anything he desires. He returns from the original Clayfighter, but he has more forms this time around, and a much busier tongue. Before the match he is seen morphing into a thumb and pointing it down replying that he is saying "You're goin' down!" His arena is a green clay-covered city street.

Nanaman - Nanaman (or simply "Nana", as he is called in-game) is a cool, laid-back banana with a Jamaican accent. He spends his days chillin' in the shade and sipping icy cold drinks. He's got that care-free Jamaican attitude, he is also known for saying "Go to the air, mon!" during his rising kick attack. His arena is a jungle temple.

Octohead - Octohead (called "Octo" in the actual game) loves to party all the time, and is now putting all that energy into winning the tournament. Octo attack with acrobatic cartwheels, as well as move that resembles a headspin in break dancing. His arena is the ocean floor.

Googoo - Googoo is a huge baby. He's a bad dude who plays pool, loves women, and chills with his posse in "The Crib". He has a spiked rattle that he uses for almost all of his attacks. He also hurls his bottle at the opponents from a distance. His arena is a street outside a toy store.

Hoppy - Hoppy, the "Battle Bunny" was once a normal little rabbit, until he got ripped by talking to his muscles. Now that he's all diesel, aside from ravaging his neighbor's garden, Hoppy can mop the floor with the other clayfighters to become grandmaster of Mudville. Hoppy is a spoof of the title character in the Terminator film series. His arena is a cliff side military camp.

Kangoo - Kangoo is a boxing kangaroo who usually is too nice to her opponents and hates hurting people, despite being the World Clay Boxing Association champion. She wanted to retire, but her fans threatened to lynch her if she did, so she enters the tournament. Her arena is a boxing ring.

Evil Counterparts[]

Along with the 8 standard characters on C-2, each one had an evil counterpart that could be unlocked. These act as the "final boss" for their counterparts, and for themselves. Although they have the same sprites as their regular counterparts, they have different attacks (normal and special), different fighting stances, different colors, different win quotes, different poses at the start of matches, different mugshots, and different endings, making them play almost like entirely different characters.

Ice - Ice is Frosty's evil twin. Not much has changed about him, except his battle stance is a boxing stance and he wears a brown hat. His body is slightly darker than Frosty's. He believes that he is better than Frosty. He is seen frowning with angered eyes. Ice stole Frosty's Sneaky Punch from the first ClayFighter game, although it works a little differently this time. When he wins, he says "I'm bad!" twisting his cap.

Butch - Butch, unlike Tiny, has a suitable name for his appearance. Like Tiny, Butch is big, but dumb as a brick. He will not only punch opponents but fart at them too, as a somewhat unconventional projectile attack.[citation needed]. His battle stance and skin color is different too. He is seen moving his lower jaw hanging open. When he wins, he says "Wimp!" posing.

Slyck - Slyck's the evil twin of Blob. His battle stance consists of what looks like he is breathing heavily, plus his eyes are yellow with green while he has yellow teeth. He is seen with his mouth open with closed teeth and glaring, he turns into different objects than Blob, but they fight similar. When he wins, he says "I'm number one!" glaring.

Dr. Peelgood - A spoof of the Mötley Crüe song "Dr. Feelgood," Peelgood's a laid-back dude, just like Nana. No difference beyond physical ones are ever really shown. He is purple with green arms, and his battle stance has a slower pace. He is seen looking around suspiciously while frowning. When he wins, he says "Woot mon!" doing the "V" sign.

Jack - Jack is the opposite of Octohead. Rather than loving company and partying, Jack wishes to be left alone and do pretty much nothing. He wants the whole sea to himself. His stance is different from Octohead's, and he's purple and pale flesh rather than light purple and white. He is seen moving his lower lip and looking downwards. Jack eschews Octo's fighting style, and attacks very differently, which makes him stand out among the evil characters. He is very direct in attacks, utilizing a charging bite move, and a sneaky slide kick. When he wins, he say "Goodnight!" flipping around.

Spike - Spike isn't too different from his counterpart, Googoo, except he wears lavender, he has darker skin color, and he is much meaner. He is seen frowning with his eyes glaring and shining. When he wins, he makes a thumb sucking noise while sucking on his thumb.

Sarge - Sarge, unlike Hoppy, got his muscles from hard military work. Sarge is a loud-mouthed sergeant, and like Hoppy, rides around on his "Thundering Chopper" motorcycle. His battle stance moves in a faster pace than Hoppy's. He is grey and wears yellow. He is seen growling with his mouth open, but teeth closed. When he wins, he says "I beat ya!" hopping up and down.

Thunder - Unlike Kangoo, Thunder loves nothing more than beating someone senseless. She loves inflicting pain on all opponents. She is also dark colored but still with red gloves. Her child in her pouch also attacks, unlike Kangoo's child. She is seen glaring and growling with her mouth open, but teeth closed. When she wins, she laughs along with her child either holding it up or posing with it.


Lucy - Lucy, a gorilla, was originally planned to be a playable character in the game but final version she was replaced by Nana Man in the last moment.

Ickybod Clay - This ghoul was originally planned to be a playable character in the game with his sprites reused fro the first ClayFighter but he was replaced by Tiny in the last moment.
