* UrbanHellscape: ''Videogame/DoubleDragon'' takes the same premise as ''Videogame/FinalFight'' but also adds in TheApunkalypse. Civilization has collapsed, making martial arts dojos the only law left in the world. Thus the twin brothers Billy and Jimmy Lee fight to clean up the streets of New York. In some version, however, Jimmy is also secretly the Shadow Boss that controls the most powerful gang in the world.

''Double Dragon'' was followed by two arcade sequels and numerous home versions for various platforms. The three NES versions (along with the first two Game Boy games and the SNES-exclusive installment) were actually developed by Technos themselves, while most of the other versions were licensed out and developed by other companies. The series died out after Technos went out of business in 1996 (long after the beat-'em-up boom ended), despite attempts to adapt it into a FightingGame format. The series was revived when Million Corp., a company founded by former Technos staff members, bought the IP. The IP was later bought, alongside other Technos properties by Creator/ArcSystemWorks. While the series is nowhere near as prevalent as it was back in the day, it still gets an occasional new game once in a while.

** ''The Mysterious Warrior'', an [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin enigmatic]] figure introduced in the second NES game as the BigBad, appears in Double Dragon Advance as right-hand man to Willy. He is still BadAss, though.

** [[http://www.gamengai.com/bn_inf.php?id=512 The character illustrations]] drawn for the first Famicom/NES game makes Billy and Jimmy Lee look like clones of [[FistOfTheNorthStar Kenshiro and Raoh]]. While Billy was depicted more or less the same way in subsequent games, Jimmy's resemblance to Raoh was toned down considerably [[http://www.gamengai.com/bn_inf.php?id=513 after the first game]].
