* ''VideoGame/{{Dota 2}}'' shows one of these before every match starts as of patch 7.00, with the Radiant heroes along the top and the Dire heroes along the bottom... even though actual gameplay has the Radiant heroes at the south end of the map.

Somewhere on this splash will be the word "vs" or "versus". Sometimes "and" will be used to indicate team-ups. While these are secondary to the actual image, the presence of these small words is still a hallmark of the trope. Sometimes, a voice will announce the confrontation as well, and if so, expect the announcer to be a LargeHam.

* A non fighting game example, the VideoGame/BlackRockShooter game has it while Rock has to fight bosses, it's quite unique in this medium, being an ActionRPG, TurnBasedRPG Hybrid.
* The TropeCodifier is ''VideoGame/StreetFighterII'', where at the beginning of each match-up after stage selection, a screen would flare up with profile shots of the two battling characters before switching to the actual fight. It predates that game, including use in the original ''StreetFighter''.

* Despite ''VideoGame/{{Skullgirls}}'' having plenty of {{Shout Out}}s to other fighting games (and more), this trope is notably averted; instead there's just a long loading screen between character select and match start. The development team cites technical difficulties (i.e. even more loading) as their rationale.

Compare JuxtaposedHalvesShot (where half of two characters sides/faces are juxtaposed to or beside each other), MirroredConfrontationShot (a similar but conflict exclusive trope), and SuperMovePortraitAttack.

* ''Money Idol Exchanger'' has a bizarre double-vision pre-battle versus screen also used for character selection in two-player mode. The captioned {{Character Portrait}}s, with "VS" popping up between them in rainbow letters, are positioned above sprites of the same girls that are also not the SuperDeformed ones players actually control.
