I'm looking for a breakout style game where the paddle was holding by a Chinese character, with red clothes. The character was on the holding above his head the paddle and he was running to not allow the ball to touch the floor. The game was an arcade game. I remember also playing it with MAME long time ago.

    In what sense are you 'looking for it'? Do you just want a name, an implementation, or what?

    @idspispopd: my guess would be the lack of detail. Linking to a web site or game video, including a description of the matching features, or adding a screen shot (if you have enough karma to add photos) would make it easier for the OP and others to determine if the answer was correct. ^another-dave: I believe you asked that on meta a couple of weeks ago: retrocomputing.meta.stackexchange.com/q/1218/56

Thunder & Lightning

Published in 1990 on arcade

Definitely a breakout type game

Different characters in the game. The description matches one of those shown in the following screenshot (stereotype Chinese character with a plait, red clothes, holds a paddle over his head).
