In 1985, Miami-Dade Police Department detective Kung Fury and his partner Dragon apprehend a red ninja in a back alley, but Dragon is sliced in half by the ninja while Kung Fury is suddenly struck by lightning and bitten by a cobra, giving him extraordinary martial arts powers that enable him to defeat his foe. The day after defeating an arcade machine robot, Kung Fury quits the force when he is assigned to partner with Triceracop, fearing that he would lose another partner in the line of duty. Meanwhile, Adolf Hitler, a.k.a. “Kung Führer”, enters the timeline and remotely guns down the entire precinct through a mobile phone. Intent to avenge the precinct, Kung Fury has computer whiz Hackerman “hack” him back into Nazi Germany to kill Hitler. A glitch in the system, however, sends him back into the Viking Age. After Kung Fury meets the Viking babes Barbarianna and Katana, the Norse God Thor sends him to Nazi Germany for him to finish his job.
Upon his arrival, Kung Fury singlehandedly mows down hundreds of Nazi soldiers with his martial arts skills, but is gunned down by Hitler using a Gatling gun from inside his podium. Suddenly, Thor, Hackerman, Triceracop, the Viking Babes, and a Tyrannosaurus hack into the timeline and kill the rest of the Nazi army while the dinosaur squares off against Hitler’s robot bird. After being revived back into health by Hackerman, Kung Fury squares off against Hitler before Thor drops his hammer on the Nazi leader and his robot bird. Seeing his mission as accomplished, Kung Fury returns to his timeline.
Back in 1985 Miami, Kung Fury once again battles and defeats the arcade machine robot, but notices a Swastika sticker on it while Hitler and his robot bird enter the timeline, vowing revenge on Kung Fury.
David Hasselhoff‘s music video of the theme song “True Survivor” debuted on April 16, 2015. It begins with an altered scene from the trailer where instead of the police car exploding in mid air, from thug gunfire, Hasselhoff turns the tables and fires back at the thugs from the airborne police car. The video features Hasselhoff singing alongside a white Lamborghini Countach replica, clips from the film, as well as an end scene of himself and Kung Fury (Sandberg) riding a Tyrannosaurus; Hasselhoff replaces the Viking Katana (Helene Ahlson), who appeared with Kung Fury on the Tyrannosaurus in the original trailer.
