Kevin Green has more troubles than your average 
teenager. A successful product of genetic experimenta¬ 
tion, Kevin has access to a source of amazing power 
locked within his youthful frame. A power he barely 
understands courses through his system waiting to 
be unleashed as PRIME! 

Although his grasp on super-heroics is new, Prime 
answers the multiple Ultra Human challenges with the 
fury of a man possessed! (Okay, a teenager possessed...) 
But hey, what he lacks in fighting skills he more than 
makes up for in brute strength! 

Which is a good thing, seeing as how his girlfriend Kelly 
has disappeared from her recent trip to the mall. As 
Prime investigates, he notices a group of powerful thugs 
hanging around the scene of the crime. With the fate of 
his girlfriend at stake, Prime becomes a human juggernaut 
and wades into battle with the gang of hoods (who 
picked the wrong day to be the bad guys!)

ter that's going to stop you!

the Change Options screen. 


in the fighting mode, Prime can perform a variety of spe¬ 
cialized attacks against the bad guys. Use these special 
moves to take out the enemies with more style (and raw 
power!) To do most of these moves, walk towards an 
enemy while holding Button A and grab an opponent. 
Then press Button Awhile holding the D-Pad in a direc¬ 
tion to perform a special attack. 

GRAB - Prime's grip is so strong that he can literally lift an 
opponent off the ground and suspend him in his grasp! 
From this position, Prime has a number of options in 
dealing with the enemy that he is holding. Note: Don’t 
wait too long to deal with the guy you're holding or he 
may squirm out of your grasp. 

DOUBLE GRAB - Since Prime has two huge meaty paws, 
he can grab two villains simultaneously. This immobilizes 
them and sets them up for (see below).

bad guys are prone to a head bash. Press the attack but¬ 
ton when you are doing the Double Grab to quickly

away from you for a thunderous shock to his system! This 
is a challenging move to execute repeatedly.

enemy into the pavement head first. This move does 
major damage to the opponents! 



Prime takes to the skies in a couple of levels for high¬ 
flying action! Although the controls are similar, there 
is a slight difference in handling his movements while 
he is airborne. 


BIG BURST - The ambient energy within Prime can be 
used as an explosive weapon itself! Prime elevates him¬ 
self above the enemies, concentrates on harnessing this 
energy, then erupts into a powerful blast that stuns not

as well. This move can only be done when Prime has a

PRIME - Before he was born, Kevin Green's parents 
worked with an organization (funded by the U.S. mili¬ 
tary), in an effort to increase their chances of fertility. 

After several operations, Kevin’s mother became preg¬ 
nant, and nine months later delivered a healthy baby boy. 

Fast forward to fifteen years later (present day), and we 
have the Green family living normal, ordinary lives. Until, 
that is, the long-term effects from the experiments that 
affected Kevin's birth surfaced. A powerful metamorpho¬ 
sis transforms the average, slightly built Kevin Green into 
the super hero - PRIME! 

Perhaps the strongest Ultra Human of the modern age. 
Prime has powers and abilities that separate him from the 
rest of humanity. These include: super strength, incredible 
endurance, and flight. Although he has no formal training 
as a fighter (remember, Kevin is inside this guy). Prime 
handles himself well in a scrap through his brute strength 
and determination. Many’s the time he’ll conquer an 
opponent by reminding them (and himself), "Prime is the 
strongest of them all!” 












Kelly Cantrell - Kelly Cantrell is the thirteen-year-old class¬ 
mate of Kevin Green/Prime and the cutest girl in the 
eighth grade. Kevin has a crush on Kelly, but she tends to 
keep him at arm's length because of the perception her 
friends have that Kevin’s a geek. However, Prime’s another 
story, she thinks he’s the greatest! She’s thrilled to be 
flown into the air by this hero, awestruck as he battles 
crime for her benefit. 


However, she tends to feel a little uncomfortable around 
Prime because he has referred to her as his "girlfriend." 
When he brings her home in the evenings and says ner¬ 
vously that he wants to see her again ... she feels 
strange. She tells a friend, "I think Prime ... likes me." 
"You mean, he likes you?" "I think.” "But isn’t he, like, 
thirty years old, or something?" "He looks it." “Weird." 
"Yeah, real weird.” As time passes, she slowly begins to 
suspect Prime is Kevin Green, It's a secret she may soon 
find the answer to. 


Not to be underestimated. 
Make sure to put his snout 
out of commission. 


"I’ll crack you over the head 
with my stick if you don’t stay 
off of my turf. Prime!
