The Pro-1 is a third-party Sega Mega Drive control pad released by Chips do Brasil. It is the first of several controllers in the "Pro" series.

The Pro-1 is a relatively simple three button controller with very basic turbo features. Though billed as an Atari 2600 and Sega Master System controller, it is, like the majority of 2600 and Master System controllers, fully compatible with the Mega Drive, even sporting a C button which the aforementioned consoles lack. There is a switch on the back which toggles between "A", for better functioning on the Atari 2600, and "B", for the Master System.

Pro-1s are very common in South America, particularly in Brazil and Argentina. The controller was followed by the Pro-2 and later Pro-3, which are also very common.
