* AIBreaker: Walls that can be climbed. The computer is completely unable to jump on top of other platforms, and it becomes way less aggressive against a player walking on them. One easy way to handle many foes (even bosses!) is to climb up a wall, attack while jumping down, and get back onto the wall to repeat while your foe is down. If the wall is sufficiently short, Alex and Ryan can even hit their foe without jumping down, allowing the player to just stand up there and win. Kept from outright breaking the game by having several of the more challenging fights (including most of the Zombies as well most of River City High) lacking these convenient platforms.



* VillainForgotToLevelGrind: If you fight Benny and Clyde the first time near the river, they'll come back later in the game next to the sauna for a rematch. However, they have the exact same stats as they did when they first appeared. If Alex or Ryan have a maxed out attack stat and the skill books that give that attack RapidFireFisticuffs (which is pretty easy at this point), the two will go down in one or two blows.

Also possible if an early- or mid-game gang spawns near River City High - when you're regularly dealing with The Internationals or The Cowboys and suddenly The Mob or The Home Boys show up, it's a bit of a breather as you're suddenly facing off against a pack of nine enemies that's just as strong as when they were hanging out in their usual early-game locations.

* NoExportForYou: Despite the cult following of ''River City Ransom'', none of the later Kunio games were localized with the exception of ''Nintendo World Cup'' and ''Street Challenge''. An attempt to bring several ''Kunio'' games under the ''Crash 'n the Boys'' banner was made, but only the aforementioned ''Street Challenge'' (''Bikkuri Nekketsu Shin Kiroku!'') was released and plans to release ''Ice Challenge'' (a localization of ''Ike Ike! Nekketsu Hockey Bu'') was canceled. This includes ''Downtown Special'', which plays the same, but takes place in historical Japan and is less linear.



* PaletteSwap[=/=]OnlySixFaces[=/=]CastOfSnowflakes: Simultaneously! The first is the most prominent, as all the guys have the same basic body, differentiated only by the color of their shirts. Secondly, all the gangs share the same nine faces; fight all nine members of a gang and you'll always see a Glasses Guy, a Sunglasses Guy, a Big Forehead Guy, a Scruffy Haired Guy, etc. in each of the gangs. Finally, all of the boss characters have unique faces that sometimes resemble but are notably different from the nine generic gang faces.

Another remake, ''Downtown Nekketsu Monogatari SP'', was released in Japan in 2016 as part of the franchise's 30th anniversary celebration. [[http://youtu.be/cGRgnc-JWNk These]] [[http://youtu.be/gP4jNATFekI trailers]] pretty much tell it like it is. Time will tell if it will see an English localization. That same year ''River City Tokyo Rumble'' saw a release in America.

A remake, ''River City Ransom EX'', came out in 2004 for the GameBoyAdvance, which added more moves, more gangs, more weapons, more characters (some of them from later ''Downtown Nekketsu'' games), and the option to have up to three allies fighting alongside you. However, it lacked a proper 2-player co-op mode and while the English version featured an Americanized script like its NES counterpart, the characters were still drawn with their Japanese school uniforms.

* TrueCompanions: A feature added to the GameBoyAdvance version, defeated bosses could follow you around and fight on your side. Most of the time it required a high reputation (an invisible stat the game keeps track) but sometimes it required talking to certain characters or choosing not to play with both Alex and Ryan. The best examples are the Zombies and the Generic Dudes, because none of them really wanted to work for Slick or Thor.

Added DiffLines:

* BullyingADragon: Benny and Clyde, in their rematch fight close to River City High. They couldn't beat Alex and/or Ryan back at the first mall, when the two hadn't had a chance to improve at all. They then come after the heroes near the end, after they've had nearly the whole game to buff out. Oh, and Benny and Clyde [[VillainForgotToLevelGrind didn't get any stronger in the interim]]. They deliberately come looking for payback against the two and pick a fight against two guys they literally couldn't beat on their best day... and that best day has long since past.

* BossBanter: Though in text rather than spoken dialog, the bosses all had a lot to say during their fights.
