The fighting system (somewhat reminiscent of ''VideoGame/FightingVipers'') is a basic 3 button layout with a punch, kick and beast change. The special thing about this franchise is the ability to (as the story suggests) morph into different animals and become stronger and have access to different attacks and special moves, while also providing two health bars (One each for human and beast form). They can also heal while in beast form. The games combine 2D fighting game elements with 3D elements, complete with jumping by holding up and side stepping.

The fighting system (somewhat reminiscent of ''VideoGame/FightingVipers'') is a basic 3 button layout with a punch, kick and beast change. The special thing about this franchise is the ability to (as the story suggests) morph into different animals and become stronger and have access to different attacks and special moves, while also providing essentially two health bars (One each bars, one for human regular health and a second one for beast form). They can also heal while form. The latter is charged with damage dealt and received when in normal form, then takes over for most damage received when in beast form, the difference being that depleting the beast meter simply brings that fighter out of beast form. The games combine 2D fighting game elements with 3D elements, complete with jumping by holding up and side stepping.

* AmazingTechnicolorWildlife: In ''Bloody Roar'' and ''Bloody Roar 2'', if one selects most characters in their alternate costumes and watches them transform into beast mode, it will be noticeable that some of their beast modes' coloration will not be found on their real-life animal counterparts ie. One costume of Gado's in ''Bloody Roar''has him turn into a bright blue lion with an orange mane. This has been averted starting with ''Bloody Roar 3'', where their coloration is closer to real life, with the notable exception of Shenlong, who turns into a violet-purple tiger and a scarlet-red tiger in his alternate costume.

* DivergentCharacterEvolution: Oddly, a clone of Gado gets his moves while ''he himself'' gets this. Same deal with Yugo, whose fighting style changed dramatically from the second game on, and Fang, who got Yugo's first-game moveset, in ''Primal Fury/Extreme''.
** Long and Shenlong have a weird way about this: Shenlong in ''2'' has Long's moveset from the first game, while Long's own moves are changed. Then, in ''3'', Long gets most of his old moves back and Shenlong gets a new unique moveset.

*** An OlderThanYouThink example: Xion has been accused of being similar to Dante from VideoGame/DevilMayCry, although Xion has been around a little longer before Dante was born.
** In-universe, Yugo gets one in the form of [[http://bloodyroar.wikia.com/wiki/File:Fang;_Wolf.jpg Fang,]] a character exclusive only to the worldwide versions of ''Extreme'' and ''PF'' and a CanonImmigrant from Maruyama Tomowo's two book tie-in manga, ''[[NoExportForYou Bloody Roar: The Fang]]''. He looks and acts just like Yugo (even sharing most of his moves from the first game), a rabbit girlfriend (Mashiro), and [[WeaponOfChoice beast form of choice]] (the wolf). He acts as a PaletteSwap for Yugo. WordOfGod confirms that the parallels were intended.

** Ironically ''2''[='=]s greatest strength and ''4''[='=]s greatest weakness. The moves have always been simple to use, the game emphasized tactics and mind games over long, complicated moves. Thus in ''2'', a new player could be an expert if they used their head and out thought opponents. In ''4'', it's pointless working hard to understand the game; just use the cheap and broken stuff to get easy wins.

* WeaksauceWeakness: Ryoho is an obnoxiously cheap SNKBoss. He's got a bunch of extremely easy-to-hit moves with high damage and can chew your life meter out in a few seconds, giving you a game over when you lose. If you're using Uriko, on the other hand, all of his attacks will go over her head and he will be completely vulnerable to all of Uriko's moves, making this the biggest [[AnticlimaxBoss anticlimax of a boss]] since Shang Tsung in the first ''Franchise/MortalKombat''. Apparently, Catgirls > dragons.
** Said catgirl is hinted at throughout the series as being, possibly, the strongest character in the series (maybe even stronger than Uranus, though that's only hinted at in Uriko's final scene in ''Primal Fury'') this may be... well it's still a bizarre way of showing it, but what can you do?
*** Considering that Uriko's beast form in the first game (where she was the FinalBoss) is similar to that of Uranus, this isn't altogether unsurprising.

** ''Bloody Roar 4'' featured a mechanic which allows you to recover the beast gauge while sacrificing your life gauge. This proves to be a ScrappyMechanic due to stripping away your health and removing some of the benefits that came with the beast mode, such as disabling the health regeneration. Unless you play as Ryoho & Mana, in which Mana uses the beast gauge, and recovering it ''never drains Ryoho's health!''

** This is a counterbalance to Cronos' Phoenix form, which can bite off ''chunks'' of your health almost instantaneously, but only can maintain the transformation for about 15 seconds.

Added DiffLines:

* BlatantLies: The advertisement for ''Bloody Roar 4'' claimed to have 18 playable characters. This counts Ryoho and Dragon Ryoho as different characters, and singles out Mana, even though she fights exclusively with Ryoho. It also claims that there are 8 game modes, which is stretched thin since training and sparring are virtually the same (the difference is that the AI opponent will fight back), and Com Battle is considered a "game play" mode.

Added DiffLines:

** Ironically, ''4'' fixed an issue that was common with the AI in previous entries: They are susceptible to being thrown the moment the match starts, and they are unable to properly register when you do a side step.


Added DiffLines:

* ArtificialStupidity: The AI will never counter throws, at least not in the beginning of the match where you can get close before the match begins, and get a throw in as soon as it starts. They are also unable to catch up to side-stepping players in time to change their strategy, allowing savvy-players to dodge their attacks with ease.
** ''4'' did fix these for the most part, but created one more glaring issue: The opponents will drain their health in favor of refilling their beast gauge so they can go into their beast form more constantly. Even if they did this with the intention of using their beast drives, said beast drives don't even inflict much more damage than a regular combo string. Basically, [[TooDumbToLive they're killing themselves just to become a beast more often, even though they're diminishing their life for doing this.]]
** In the case of Dragon Ryoho, whose health bar is almost depleted when faced as the final boss, he will happily use beast drives, which cost him parts of the beast gauge. To put simply, he is able to turn himself into a [[OneHitPointWonder one hit point wonder.]] It seems that the best way to balance this out is to make his beast drive really powerful, but that can be dodged.

Upon facing Long, the man he is based on, he [[GoMadFromTheRevelation goes mad from the revelation]] to accept that he is a clone. Since then, he went on to live a life for himself, enjoying life more, and appears to be on good terms with Long and Yuriko, and becomes more rational with each game.
** ''Gado'' as well. He goes from a BloodKnight in the first game who loves to start fights in honor of his fallen comrade, Yugi. In later games, he takes a more passive role of representing Zonathropes in talks of them co-existing with humans, having apparently eliminated his violent tendencies.

** Yugo did enjoy a good fight and held a career as a professional boxer, but he demonstrated that he is perfectly capable of running an agency to help Zoanthropes, and is not one to back down from destroying an artifact that is the cause of trouble in ''3''. By ''4'', he is portrayed as a DumbJock, demonstrating his clumsiness and being too head strong.
