'''Fighter's History''' was a short lived FightingGame series by Data East. This game is remembered for being '''THE''' ''VideoGame/StreetFighterII'' ripoff. [[SerialNumbersFiledOff Capcom filed a lawsuit against them,]] but they lost, and the game was successful enough to get a home port to the SNES, a sequel titled ''Fighter's History Dynamite'' (a.k.a. ''Karnov's Revenge'') and a spin-off Super Famicom game titled ''Fighter's History: Mizoguchi Kiki Ippatsu!!''[[labelnote:Translation]]''"Mizoguchi's Moment of Crisis!"''[[/labelnote]] No new entry to the series has been made since Data East filed for bankruptcy in 2003 aside from a Japan-only crossover with ''VideoGame/FatalFury'' for cellphones made by Creator/{{SNK}}.

** Zazie is a Kenyan, more serious Dee Jay. He also vaguely resembles [[VideoGame/VirtuaFighter Jeffry McWild]]. Furthermore, his stage features a woman in the background (his wife? a female relative?) cheering him on, much like Sari would do for her husband Dhalsim in ''VideoGame/StreetFighterAlpha 2'', ''Alpha 3'', and ''[[VideoGame/StreetFighterIV SSFIV]]''.

* [[SurprisinglyGoodEnglish Surprisingly Good Everything]]: Every character except Marstorius, Zazie, and Yungmie speaks in their native dialect. This is something ''Franchise/StreetFighter'' and the other big-name franchises ''still'' haven't done even halfway well.

Only ''VideoGame/{{Tekken}} Tag Tournament 2'' would ever get to do that, nearly ''two decades'' after this game came out.

* RubberBandAI: Once the computer recovers from being dizzied after their weak spot is exposed and knocked off, there's a good chance you've already lost the round regardless of how well things were going beforehand.

* AttackItsWeakPoint: Subverted. Attacking a certain part of the body will cause an article of clothing to be knocked off, such as Ryoko's headband, [[FridgeLogic the lightning bolt on Ray's shirt]] or Fei-Lin's breastplate (don't worry, she ''is'' wearing something under it). At this point, the character becomes dizzy for that round. The first game also had your characters take more damage when it was removed.

** Yungmie is more or less a Korean Chun-Li, although how explicitly varies from appearance to appearance. Feilin is another Chun-Li wannabe.
