"The Trouble Man," also written in all capitals as "THE TROUBLE MAN" is a song that was performed and composed by Japanese singer Eikichi Yazawa (矢沢 永吉, Yazawa Eikichi). The song was featured as a b-side on the single Aozora (青空, Aozora) and was released in 1995 under EMI Music Japan, Formally Toshiba EMI. The song was written by Andrew Gold.

Most notably, "The Trouble Man" was used for the intro of the Japanese PlayStation port of Darkstalkers: The Night Warriors as well as a commercial promoting the game. The song would later be reused as the ending theme for both the US cartoon, Darkstalkers and the Night Warriors: Darkstalkers' Revenge OVA.
