* ''[[VideoGame/XMenChildrenOfTheAtom X-Men: Children of the Atom]]'' and ''VideoGame/MarvelSuperHeroes'': A couple of Creator/MarvelComics licensed fighting games. The former features characters strictly from Comicbook/{{X-Men}} (plus Akuma, also as a secret GuestFighter); while the latter includes characters from the whole Franchise/MarvelUniverse, such as Comicbook/{{Spider-Man}}, Comicbook/CaptainAmerica, and [[Comicbook/IncredibleHulk the Hulk]].

*** The ''[[VideoGame/SNKVsCapcom Capcom vs. SNK]]'' series is an even ''bigger'' MassiveMultiplayerCrossover, featuring characters from two different companies both known for their 2D fighting games. Although, the original ''Capcom vs. SNK'' and its upgraded rerelease ''Capcom vs. SNK Pro'' merely consisted of ''Street Fighter'' and ''VideoGame/{{The King of Fighters}}'' characters (with Morrigan from ''Darkstalkers'' and Nakoruru from ''VideoGame/SamuraiShodown''), the sequel ''Capcom vs. SNK 2'' contains a greater range of characters from both companies' fighting game catalog. Later on, Creator/{{SNK}} made their own title, ''[[VideoGame/SNKVsCapcomSVCChaos SNK vs. Capcom: SVC Chaos]]''. Unlike the other titles, the roster choices were a bit more... [[UnexpectedCharacter unorthodox]].

%%* DeathCryEcho

to:

%%* DeathCryEcho* TheDarkSide: A recurring theme in the series is that there are good reasons and methods for fighting and bad ones.
** The most famous example is the Satsui no Hadou, which is used by Akuma and opposed by Ryu and Gouken. It's explained that their fighting style started as an assassination style, and thus each move's true and original form was meant for killing. The Satsui no Hadou occurs when a practitioner of the style gives in to the desire to win at all costs, thus walking a path full of death and destruction.
** M. Bison's Psycho Power is stated to gain its strength from the suffering, fear and hatred of others. Bison himself embodies it and has become something no longer human (if he ever was human). Rose, on the other hand, embodies the good form (Soul Power) and is far weaker, but much kinder and more human (at least in appearance and behavior).
** Whatever mysterious power that Charlie Nash channels in ''SFV'' is speculated in-universe to be related to the Satsui no Hadou. Fittingly, Charlie himself has been consumed by a thirst for revenge.
* DeathCryEcho: Used ever since the very first game to indicate that a character is down for the count. Since ''IV'', however, the death cry doesn't echo unless it's the match-winning round.



* InvulnerableAttack
* KiAttacks

to:

* InvulnerableAttack
InvulnerableAttack: The most infamous example is the {{Shoryuken}}--most versions of which are invulnerable during at least the first few frames of startup. Most characters have at least one invulnerable attack that can be used for reversals. More powerful versions (such as EX or Super variations) may be invulnerable throughout most, or ''all'' of the attack.
* KiAttacksKiAttacks: The co-{{TropeNamer|s}} of KamehameHadoken, and one of the most famous examples of this trope. The stable character archetype of ''Street Fighter'', the ShotoClone, is able to throw some sort of energy projectile from their hands. Other characters can use Ki to enhance physical attacks (such as M. Bison's Psycho Crusher or Guile's Somersault/Flash Kick).



* MusclesAreMeaningless: Played straight and subverted at the same time. In a series where [[PintsizedPowerhouse petite]] and [[BadassAdorable deceptively adorable]] [[CuteBruiser women]] use [[ArtisticLicenseMartialArts implausible]] [[SheFu fighting]] [[WaifFu skills]] and many characters [[CharlesAtlasSuperpower possess]] {{supernatural|MartialArts}} [[KiAttacks abilities]] [[PsychicPowers able]] [[MindOverMatter to]] [[PressurePoint render]] [[FlashStep physical]] [[RubberMan strength]] [[PlayingWithFire null]] [[ShockAndAwe and]] [[RuleOfCool void]] or [[AppliedPhlebotinum have had their]] ([[ArtificialHuman possibly artificial]]) [[AppliedPhlebotinum bodies]] [[{{Magitek}} fundamentally altered]], characters like [[HuskyRusskie Zangief]] and [[LightningBruiser Alex]] ([[BadassNormal who rely almost completely on strength and deadly technique]]) are able to match them in most cases ([[GameplayAndStorySegregation tier rankings notwithstanding]]). In fact, [[SerialEscalation the increasingly absurd]] HeroicBuild doesn't just benefit the men; some of the ladies [[AmazonianBeauty are visibly ripped]] due to their training. [[MaleGaze Take a look at]] Cammy (her entire physique in general), Makoto's arms (in ''IV''), Juri (her abs, in particular), and Chun-Li (her ''legs'' in ''any'' game, as well as her arms in the ''Street Fighter Alpha'' series) for example.

* BootstrappedTheme: Every character, as early as ''II''. Back then, the music was associated to the stages, not to the characters, but since each of them had their own home stage, the music effectively extended to the character who were based in each stage. It went to an extent that the ''SFII'' music was remixed into the World Warriors' new stages in ''Alpha'' and ''Alpha 2'', and solidified by the time of ''IV'', as the concept of home stages had been ditched altogether.
