DJ Boy (DJボーイ) is a 1989 arcade beat-'em-up by Kaneko running on Kaneko-designed hardware and distributed by Sega in Japan and American Sammy elsewhere. Sega and Kaneko ported it to the Sega Mega Drive in 1990.

You play as a kid on rollerskates beating up enemies in various auto-scrolling environments. A punches, B kicks, and C jumps, with a variety of combo moves in between.
