Sad, now I will never know who cow man was, or why he exploded.
I too was compelled to discover this information, and I think I've figured it out.

Cow man is unoriginally named minotaur (mintaurosu unless my kana is failing as it often does) and he exploded because he got shot by the big robot. This may not be canon as he's still in the actual game and it seems like character death is permanent. The story of the game is that these twelve goofy monsters have to stop the robot invasion. Gameplay wise it seems like a very slow, combat-focused JRPG, and extremely tedious for such a batshit concept.

That opening theme kicks so much ass though.

So those guys are the heroes?! I had assumed the robot was the hero in a mech suit or something, killing mutants and demons. Now I'm even sadder it hasn't been translated and I could play a ROM of it from somewhere. Although if it's that tedious maybe I should just be happy it just exists as a testament to old school Japanese weirdness.

Edit: Well now, turns out there's an English translation patch for the NES ROMs...

Whatever, just wash your hands.

If I could play the piano with only a tenth of the skill of this guy I would be happy. (but to do that I'd need to spend less time playing video games and more time practicing so probably not going to happen.)

Some original composition, apparently they done work for devs lately also, so is all technically valid my lawyer said I can claim;
