* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: Although it's a arguable one, considering both ''Fire Pro Wrestling Returns'' as well as all [[Wrestling/{{WWE}} WWF]]-licensed games that feature [[SteveAustin Stone Cold Steve Austin]] have a T rating and still have the trademark taunt of the latter being shown. Most of the games have a single/double middle finger taunt being available for the created wrestlers, although it's not shown straight into the camera, so it's pretty hard to say whether it's really ''that'' finger or not. Nevertheless, the name of this taunt was bowdlerized for the overseas GBA releases, where the word "thumb" replaced the "middle finger".

* CharacterCustomization: The TropeMaker for the wrestling game genre, or ''Super Fire Pro Wrestling III: Final Bout'' for Super Nintendo, to be exact.

* LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters: The later games are known for their rather large rosters, considering that the amount of pre-made wrestlers and slots for the created ones were already over the top in the series' SNES days. The latest game in the series, ''Fire Pro Wrestling Returns'' currently holds the record, sporting a roster of 327 wrestlers plus 500 [[CharacterCustomization edit]] slots.

* UpdatedRerelease: Arguably every game is basically an expansion of the previous release. ''Super Fire Pro Wrestling 3: Easy Type'', however, is a straight case, being just an easier edition of ''Final Bout'' with Edit feature removed. ''Super Fire Pro Wrestling X Premium'' is another, being basically the same game as ''Super Fire Pro Wrestling X'' but adding more storage for edits (the original game allowed 20 edit characters, the updated one had 80) and support for the Turbo File Twin accessory. ''G'' might also count as one of ''6MEN Scramble'', although ''G'' was more of an adaptation for the less powerful console (which is, in this case UsefulNotes/SegaSaturn to PlayStation).

* ButtonMashing: Almost entirly subverted. Except in a couple situations, all button inputs are based on timing. However, it's completely played straight in Human's arcade game (and SegaSaturn port) ''Blazing Tornado''.
* CanonImmigrant: ''Blazing Tornado'' was initially a standalone wrestling arcade game from Human, though the move animations were the same as the ''Fire Pro'' games. When it was ported to the SegaSaturn, however, it was retitled ''Fire Pro Gaiden: Blazing Tornado'', officially adding the game to the series. The ''Blazing Tornado'' characters also found their way into ''Super Fire Pro Wrestling X Premium''.

** For some reason, the only game in the series on the [[SegaGenesis Mega Drive]] is titled ''Thunder Pro Wrestling Retsuden''.

* SpiritualSuccessor: To the NES classic ''Pro Wrestling'', featuring a very similar fighting system, as well as an assortment of wrestlers very blatantly intended to be existing ones.

** ''G'' has the names for the Japanese wrestling promos mostly changed up completely, but the US-based federations and stables are nothing much than a one-letter swap or replacement. {{W|CW}}WC, Wrestling/{{W|WE}}FW, [[NewWorldOrder FWO]], [[{{Wrestling/ECW}} EXW: Exciting Wrestling]], anyone?

* CaptainErsatz: All the wrestlers in the games look like their RealLife counterparts, the only thing different is the name. This was taken a step further in the GameBoyAdvance games, where all wrestlers under a contract with a US company (Wrestling/{{WWE}}, {{WCW}}, etc.) [[AdaptationDyeJob had their skin, hair, and outfit colors changed]], too.
