|Power Joy Classic TV Game|
|Included games||10 (built-in), 84 (PJ-008 cart), 64 (PJ-001 cart)|
|Alternate name(s)||Power Joy, Power Joy II|
The consoles came with a Famicom multicart and 10 built-in games, mostly graphical hacks of NES games utilizing the NES Zapper.
Two different versions of the cartridge exist, a "PJ-008" 84-in-1 version and a "PJ-001" 64-in-1 version. The version with the PJ-008 cartridge was marketed as the "Power Joy II", but the "II" never appeared on the packaging or the console itself. Most of the included games are pirated NES/Famicom games, and as usual for pirate cartridges, the company logos and copyright details were removed.
The game selections on each cartridge are similar, although the PJ-001 contains some repeats. There are also two known variations of the PJ-008 cartridge with a slightly different selection of games despite the identical label and product number.
The console was first manufactured around 2001, and its UK distributors claimed over 1 million sold by 2004. However, the Power Player Super Joy III was much more ubiquitous in North America.
- The player 1 controller features a cartridge slot that supports most cartridges designed for the Famicom.
- Most have a battery pack. It takes 4 AA batteries, which are not packaged with the console.
- It comes with an AC adapter (center-negative DC9V mA350).
- It has composite and audio outputs.
- It is able to run unlicensed NES/Famicom games.
- It only comes in one color (white).
- The player 1 controller resembles a Nintendo 64 controller with a cartridge slot for most Famicom games.
- It comes packaged with a second controller. It has a similar button layout to a standard Playstation controller.
- The first controller has a light gun built into it. The trigger is the shoot button.
- Unlike its successor, the joystick on the first controller is functional.
- Although the Power Joy's button layout is identical to that of the Nintendo 64 controller, the buttons have been mapped differently. The C buttons of the N64's controller function as A and B on the Power Joy, the A and B buttons of the N64's controller are Start and Select on the Power Joy, respectively. Finally, the N64 controller's Start button is the Reset button on the Power Joy.
- It can run off of a 9V battery (negative tip) or 4 AA cells.
A number of other consoles were released in the Power Joy line following the original unit. These include:
- Power Joy III aka Power Joy Crusader - featured an LCD "brick game" built into the controller
- Power Joy Supermax - similar to the original, but with built-in rumble and 90 original games included
- Power Joy Navigator - joystick-based with 50 original games, released in both wired and wireless versions
- Power Joy Solo

Trump Grand still uses the brand name "Power Joy" on many of its current products.
