!! The Original Games
* From ''Streets of Rage 3'', throwing an enemy into one of the BottomlessPits in Stage 3. You just lose a large amount of health if you fall into a pit. Enemies on the other hand, ''[[OneHitKill die instantly]]'' no matter how much health they had remaining.
* The climatic battle in ''3'', against a hovering robot and racing against the clock to beat it. Given the higher default difficulty for non-Japanese versions, you WILL feel awesome when you get the good ending (by beating the boss before time runs out).

!! Meta
* The [[FanRemake fan remake]] ''VideoGame/StreetsOfRageRemake'' deserves mention here, as much effort has been put into it, and it is generally praised as a worthy successor. Even Sega gave it a subtle thumbs-up, seeing as how they issued the cease-and-desist order only after allowing the remake to circulate around the Internet for some time.
