* BalancePowerSkillGimmick: ''Final Fight 3'' puts Guy as a slightly faster JackOfAllStats, but Haggar, who is a MightyGlacier, is the main character. Lucia is the FragileSpeedster of the crew. Dean is slow and not as strong as Haggar, but he specializes in ranged grabs.



** Starting with [[UrExample the first one]] that has Cody Travers[[note]]His last name is given after ''Final Fight: Streetwise'' decades later[[/note]] (balance), Guy (speed) and Mike Haggar (strength). In an interesting example, Haggar is PlayingAgainstType, since he's TheProtagonist and TheHero of the series, later reusing this formula with another Capcom character: the barbarian-turned-lion [[VideoGame/RedEarth Leo]].
** The {{sequel}} ''Final Fight 2'' has Cody and Guy being replaced by Carlos Miyamoto (balance) and Maki Genryuusai (speed), with Haggar still on the lead.

* BalanceSpeedStrengthTrio: The series uses this trope in most of its games:

** In ''Final Fight 3'' and the Arcade Mode of ''Final Fight: Streetwise'', there's [[BalancePowerSkillGimmick a fourth character added to the mixture]] which have different abilities than the aforementioned trio (Guy becomes this in the former, with Lucia and Dean being the speed and balance respectively; and Cody in the latter, leaving the balance to his brother Kyle), but the pattern is still there.

Added DiffLines:

* GameplayAndStorySegregation: All of the enemies are named and have their own unique bios and personalities, but at the same time, this doesn't mean you won't see two or more of the same person onscreen at once.

** The location of the Statue of Liberty in relation to it, the Bay Area, seems to place Metro City specifically in Staten Island.

The game's development contains some interesting tidbits: The people in charge of Capcom at the time requested a sequel to ''VideoGame/{{Street Fighter|I}}''.[[note]]This was more than a year before ''VideoGame/StreetFighterII''.[[/note]] As such, the game was originally known as ''[[WorkingTitle Street Fighter '89]]'', but had its title changed before release when the game ended up becoming a side-scrolling beat 'em up and not a competitive FightingGame. The ''Final Fight'' universe was later folded over into the ''Street Fighter'' canon when characters from ''Final Fight'' started to appear in the ''Street Fighter'' series.[[note]]Up to 2017, the list is as follows: Guy (''[[VideoGame/StreetFighterAlpha SFA1, SFA2, SFA3]], [[VideoGame/StreetFighter4 SSF4, SSF4AE, USF4]] and [[VideoGame/StreetFighterXTekken SFXT]]'' plus ''VideoGame/CapcomFightingEvolution''), Sodom (''[[VideoGame/StreetFighterAlpha Alpha]]'' series only), Rolento (''[[VideoGame/StreetFighterAlpha SFA2, SFA3]], [[VideoGame/StreetFighter4 USF4]] and [[VideoGame/StreetFighterXTekken SFXT]]''), Cody (''[[VideoGame/StreetFighterAlpha SFA3]], [[VideoGame/StreetFighter4 USF4]] and [[VideoGame/StreetFighterXTekken SFXT]]''), Hugo Andore (''[[VideoGame/StreetFighterIII SF3:2I, SF3:3S]], [[VideoGame/SNKVsCapcomSVCChaos SVC Chaos]], [[VideoGame/StreetFighter4 USF4]] and [[VideoGame/StreetFighterXTekken SFXT]]''), Maki (''[[VideoGame/CapcomVsSNK2MarkOfTheMillennium CvS2]] and the [[UpdatedRerelease Upper and Max]] versions of [[VideoGame/StreetFighterAlpha SFA3]]''), Poison (cameo in ''[[VideoGame/StreetFighterIII SF3:2I, SF3:3S]] and [[VideoGame/SNKVsCapcomSVCChaos SVC Chaos]]'', and playable in ''[[VideoGame/StreetFighter4 USF4]] and [[VideoGame/StreetFighterXTekken SFXT]]''), Haggar (''[[VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom3 MVC3, UMVC3]] and [[VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcomInfinite MVCI]]'') and Abigail (''[[VideoGame/StreetFighterV SFV]]'')[[/note]]

The ''Final Fight'' universe was later folded over into the ''Street Fighter'' canon when characters from ''Final Fight'' started to appear in the ''Street Fighter'' series beginning with Guy and Sodom's appearance in the original ''VideoGame/StreetFighterAlpha'' and up to Cody and Guy's return in ''Super VideoGame/StreetFighterIV'' and Poison's debut in the ''Street Fighter'' universe as a playable character in ''VideoGame/StreetFighterXTekken''.[[note]]She had a cameo beforehand as Hugo's manager in ''[[VideoGame/StreetFighterIII Street Fighter III 2nd Impact]]''.[[/note]]

While Capcom produced several beat 'em ups for the arcade after ''Final Fight'', the game itself was only followed by two [[DirectToVideo straight-to-home console]] sequels for the SNES before fading out completely. Two attempts to revive the series in [=3D=] were made by Capcom USA: ''Final Fight Revenge'', a [[GenreShift 3D fighting game]] featuring characters from the original game, including a zombie version of Belger, for the Sega Titan hardware (which saw a [[NoExportForYou Japan-only]] home port for the UsefulNotes/SegaSaturn as Capcom's final game for the system); and ''Final Fight: Streetwise'', a DarkerAndEdgier attempt to cater to the ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAuto'' crowd.

''Final Fight'' is a belt-scrolling beat 'em up by Creator/{{Capcom}}, originally released for the arcades during the very end of 1989. As one of the earliest games for Capcom's CPS hardware, ''Final Fight'' helped popularize the beat 'em up genre during the early-to-mid 1990s that was previously established with the likes of Irem's ''Kung Fu Master'' and Technos Japan's ''Renegade'' and ''VideoGame/DoubleDragon''. It was ported to a variety of gaming platforms such as the UsefulNotes/{{S|uperNintendoEntertainmentSystem}}NES (in two different versions), the [[UsefulNotes/SegaGenesis Sega CD]], and the UsefulNotes/GameBoyAdvance, among others.

* SuperDeformed: ''Mighty Final Fight'' is essentially the original ''Final Fight'' converted to the 8-bit NintendoEntertainmentSystem with [[RPGElements an experience points system]] and chibi characters and a more humorous plot.

Added DiffLines:

* DynamicDifficulty: The arcade version adjust its difficulty based on the player's performance, becoming harder as play time is accumulated or easier every time you lose a life or use up a credit. This is why the game has two difficulty options to adjust: one that determines the overall difficulty and a second one that determines the rate in which the difficulty is increased or decreased. The SNES version uses a similar system, but it can't be exploited to the same degree due to the limited credits in that versions, which is why the later ''Guy'' version discarded it and featured standard settings instead (easy, normal, hard and expert).

Added DiffLines:

* CrissCrossAttack: Unarmed examples are the "street ninjas", Guy and Maki, in their fighting game versions (''VideoGame/StreetFighterIV'' and ''VideoGame/CapcomVsSNK2MarkOfTheMillennium'', respectively). If well they have {{Meteor Move}}s in which they slash the opponent in air to then finish it with an IzunaDrop, none of them use sword or any cutting weapon in their attacks (or in general as characters).

Added DiffLines:

* UrbanHellscape: The game is built on this premise, with crime running so rampant that even the mayor himself has to step out of office and take to the street to beat the thugs with his own two hands. Naturally, the criminals are all punk-styled and have little in the way of characterization (granted, the heroes don't either, but still).
