''Capcom Fighting Evolution'' (a.k.a. ''Capcom Fighting Jam'' in Japan and Europe), released in 2004, is a MassivelyMultiplayerCrossover between some of Creator/{{Capcom}}'s popular fighting game series, including ''VideoGame/StreetFighterII'', ''VideoGame/StreetFighterIII'', ''VideoGame/StreetFighterAlpha'' and ''VideoGame/{{Darkstalkers}}''. Of special note is that this game represents the second chance North American players have had to play as characters from the arcade-only ''VideoGame/RedEarth'' (Tessa the Witch was playable in ''VideoGame/SuperGemFighter'').

''Evolution'' is a standard one-on-one fighting game with a semi-tag function allowing players to change their current character after a round, with four characters each from their respective games, along with [[OriginalGeneration newcomer]] Ingrid (who was to appear in a 3D fighting game called ''Capcom Fighting All-Stars'', which was eventually cancelled) and FinalBoss Pyron from ''VideoGame/{{Darkstalkers}}''. All characters fight using the rules from the games they came from - the ''VideoGame/StreetFighterII'' characters use the single [[LimitBreak Super Move]] meter from ''Super Street Fighter II'', the ''VideoGame/{{Darkstalkers}}'' characters have the stacking Super Move meters, etc. Like most Capcom crossover games, there is no overarching storyline (although each character does have their own ending cutscene) - fight several opponents, then the final boss, and then watch the end credits.

* TheWorfEffect: [[VideoGame/StreetFighterIII Gill]] gets beaten down in M. Bison's ending.
