Fridge / Final Fight

Fridge Brilliance
  • The GBA versions of the first game have the Street Fighter Alpha versions of Cody and Guy as secret characters. They are commonly known to break the game based on how better they are compared to the original heroes. This makes perfect sense for two reasons: Alpha Cody and Guy hail from the future, making them more experienced, and they are taken from a franchise which has helped expand their movesets beyond their original forms.

Fridge Horror
  • In the first Final Fight game, the Mad Gear gang kidnapped the mayor's daughter, and in all three installments, if they defeat the heroes, they don't kill them immediately, instead tying them to some sort of Death Trap or another. Horrific already, but in a somewhat cheesy way... until you realize that in the first game, if you lose, they're still holding the Mayor's daughter and have no further use for her as a bargaining chip, and the later games have female protagonists too. And then you realize that just because they've tied your character to a Death Trap, it doesn't mean they did it immediately, and that has very unpleasant implications for both the female and male heroes...

    • So the heroes end up raped?
