King of the Monsters 2 is a fighting/beat 'em up game released by SNK for the SNES. It is a sequel to the game King of the Monsters. In this game three of the previous game's surviving monsters return and battle across the Globe against giant alien monsters that threaten the Earth. The Neo-Geo version of the game has been re-released for the Wii Virtual Console and Nintendo Switch Arcade Archives.


Players choose one of 3 monsters for battle, and two players can join forces to fight the monsters together. Unlike the previous game, this game features side scrolling levels in areas around the world which ends in a boss battle. During the boss battle the same kind of button mashing that was featured in the first game to win grapples returns. The game consists of 7 total levels which takes place in areas around the World. The game begins in American City followed by French City, Grand Canyon, Desert, Sea Bed, Lava Zone and ends in Enemy Hideout. After the player(s) clear the first 6 levels, they then enter the final stage where they must fight all the bosses again before encountering the final boss of the game. After the final boss is defeated the player(s) must destroy his small remnants within a time limit. If the player(s) fail to do so, the game has a "bad ending", but if the remnants are destroyed within the time limit the player(s) receive the "good ending". Outside of the levels the game features 2 bonus stages as well as a ranking at the end of the level according to how well the player performed such as "Miraculous", "That's Strong" "Nice Going" "Very Good" etc. This will correlate with the number of points the players receive as the end level bonus.
