** Not quite; we have to mention the {{egregious}} example of ''MortalKombat Deception'' and ''Armageddon''; MK, being a fond believer of this trope already, took it to the ludicrous extreme when they added in {{death trap}}s, which ''killed your opponent instantly'' if you threw them into it...but if you haven't ''won'' the Three Round Deathmatch, the next round starts with the opponent suddenly un-deadified and back to full health.

** The otherwise forgettable ''VideoGame/BloodStorm'' allowed characters to dismember each other mid-fight in addition to the Mortal Kombat-style death traps. Even if a fighter was missing both arms, their entire lower body, and had just been impaled on a huge stalagmite, the game would just move on to the next round if it wasn't two losses for them. All their missing viscera would be returned as if nothing had happened.

** Let's be honest, ''[[FuunSeries Kizuna Tag Encounter]]'' was [[OlderThanTheyThink Urier-than-thou]] in this case. And yes, you're still screwed, should only you lose ONE fighter.

** ''VideoGame/DragonBallFighterZ'' puts a unique spin on ''Marvel vs. Capcom''[='s=] format. The match as a whole stays true to ''[=MvC=]''[='s=] format where everything takes place in a single round tag-team battle and the last team with a fighter still standing at the end is declared the winner. However, when a team loses a fighter, the replacement fighter rushes into the battle and clashes with the opponent in the center of the stage before both characters leap backwards and are given a neutral start. Thus, with each fall, the match is divided into "pseudo-rounds" in order to avoid a CycleOfHurting where the victorious opponent can mix up the incoming replacement and potentially give their opponent a much worse start.

* Likewise with the first ''{{Touhou}}'' fighting game, ''Immaterial and Missing Power''. Both players get a second to position themselves after a "knockdown" but there's no reset. This fits well with the single player story mode, where all of your opponents will have multiple stages anyway.

** Played with in that fighters aren't ever "knocked out" in the traditional sense - just sent flying offstage and, rules permitting, returning to the fight on a hovering platform. The trope is averted if the rules are set to give fighters traditional HP, which means either a RingOut or running out of health removes that fighter from the match completely.

* ''PrimalRage'' gives you a choice of one, three or five rounds.
* Justified in ''TheLastBlade'', where the opponent sits up and recovers after the first loss, only going down (or dying) when the match point is scored.

** The same applies for ''VideoGame/MortalKombat9'', [[BloodierAndGorier only moreso]]. In addition, when a round ends, the defeated character gets back to their feet (some even have special ways to do so - Noob Saibot, for example, drops himself through one of his portals and lands upright) to start the next round.
* ''VideoGame/KillerInstinct'' uses a variant. Each character gets two life meters. When the first runs out, the character stands back up, the two face off, and the battle continues.

round. ''VideoGame/XMenChildrenOfTheAtom'' and ''VideoGame/MarvelSuperHeroes'' predate ''Mortal Kombat 9'' with a similar round segregation (no wipe, just having the defeated character stand up and both energy meters refill).

* Examples of the "team battle" aversion include ''VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters'' (since the first game), ''VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom'' [[CapcomVsWhatever and]] ''[[SNKVsCapcom Capcom vs. SNK]]''. ''[=KoF=]'' and ''[=CvS=]'' end rounds whenever a fighter falls so a fight can be as short as one round (in ''Capcom vs. SNK 2'' if your opponent only opted to use one ratio 4 character) or as many as seven (in ''[=KoF=] 2001'' if neither you or your opponent opted to use Striker characters and battled to the final character on each team). The tag-team gameplay of the ''[=MvC=]'' games (and by extension ''Tatsunoko vs. Capcom'') are isolated to single-round, "last team standing" format (''[=KoF=] 2003'' and ''XI'' also use this format).
