* NonstandardGameOver: Lose to Geese and out the window you go. Though if you win, you get to do the same to him.

Added DiffLines:

* VersionExclusiveContent: The SNES port replaces the arm wrestling mini-game with one using the fighting engine where you kick tires that bounce towards you.

The roster includes the following:
* '''Playable characters:''' Terry Bogard, Andy Bogard, Joe Higashi.
* '''CPU opponents:''' Michael Max, Duck King, Richard Meyer, Tung Fu Rue, Hwa Jai, Raiden, Billy Kane, Geese Howard.


Added DiffLines:

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: Since this game was in development before ''VideoGame/StreetFighterII'' took the whole world by storm, it shows:
** There are only three playable characters: Terry, Andy and Joe. The rest of the roster are all unplayable outside of console ports[[note]]and even then, the SNES version restricted the other characters to player two, while the Genesis version omitted Hwa Jai and Billy Kane to save on ROM space[[/note]].
** Terry sounds more different than what he would become.
** Every few stages will put you in a bonus round with an arm wrestling machine. It also doesn't use the game's fighting engine.
** Veterans like Mai Shiranui and Kim Kaphwan are nowhere to be found. They wouldn't be introduced until the next game.

* YouKilledMyFather: Terry and Andy's goal to beat Geese Howard is to avenge the death of their father, Jeff.


* SNKBoss: The TropeCodifier. The original battle against Geese Howard is notoriously difficult. He's armed with a projectile that can cut off a third of your health, has incredible priority on his attacks, and a counter-throw he can use against any attack he chooses (even when you simply jump at him he can grab you out of the air with said counter-throw), setting the boundaries to be later broken by [[VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters94 Rugal in KOF]]. The AI can't block on the first frame of standing up, so getting even one knockdown guarantees you the round if you spam a special that knocks him down on contact. The challenge is getting that one knockdown in the first place.

The first installment of the ''Franchise/FatalFury'' series.

The game has three playable characters, and an interesting mechanic in which a second player joining in the middle of a fight will join the first player in double-teaming their present opponent before facing each other.
