* 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''.

* 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 SegaSaturn to PlayStation).

* 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.

* NoProblemWithLicensedGames: The series ''is'' mainly known for a handful of renamed wrestlers from different federations worldwide thrown into one game, yeah, but some of its' installments are actually licensed and are spinning around one or two Japanese promotions. For the record, the first one was ''Fire Pro Women: All Star Dream Slam'' on SuperNintendoEntertainmentSystem, which featured actual female performers from All Japan's Women Pro Wrestling.

* ArtShift: ''Iron Slam '96'' attempted to use 3D polygons instead of 2D sprites. [[TheScrappy It didn't work out too well]].

** Also done in the Japan-only ''Fire Pro Wrestling G'': one of the voice samples reveals the words ''[[{{ECW}} E-C-fucking-W!]]''. Bonus points for getting the copyrighted material directly through the radar as well. Ditto for the [[Wrestling/{{Sting}} Sting Shout]] in ''Returns'' which is clearly called ''Spike Shout'' in the handheld localizations.
