* DownloadableContent: The Like other games on Sega's last console, ''Fire Pro Wrestling D'' on Dreamcast was an early adopter of add-on DLC. Besides offering updated wrestlers in saves available through Sega's "Dream Passport" service, Spike animated several dozen new moves for the game for about a year after its launch, allowing for authentic versions of popular wrestlers from 2001, especially [[Wrestling/KeijiMutoh Keiji Mutoh]]. Besides that, the Steam version of ''Fire Pro Wrestling World'' allows players to upload their custom wrestlers to the Steam Workshop and these can be downloaded like mods. Invariably, several RealLife wrestlers have been uploaded already.


''Fire Pro Wrestling'' is a series of [[ProfessionalWrestling pro wrestling]] [[WrestlingGame games.]] The games were made by Human Entertainment from 1989-2000, and then by Spike from then on. The series is very well-known for having rather large rosters of characters [[CaptainErsatz based on]] real-life superstars as well as having the most customizable AI for created wrestlers than any other game.

* DarkerAndEdgier: ''Super Fire Pro Wrestling Special'' had a story mode that got very dark very quickly, featuring a TraumaCongaLine in which TheHero's closest friends die [[spoiler:and a DownerEnding that ends with him DrivenToSuicide]]. This game also featured the directorial debut of [[Creator/GoichiSuda Suda 51]], which goes a long way to explaining the plot's dark nature.


* LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters: The later games are known for their rather large rosters, considering that the amount of pre-made wrestlers and slots for the created ones were already over the top in the series' SFC days. The latest game in the series, ''Fire Pro Wrestling Returns'' currently holds the record, sporting a roster of 327 wrestlers plus 500 [[CharacterCustomization edit]] slots.

** The paid edition of this trope came into play with the [[Wrestling/NewJapanProWrestling Yoshihiro Takayama]] DLC which added said wrestler to the game along with his Spirit Punch Rush move. All revenue from this DLC was donated to the Takayamania Charity Foundation, which was formed to support Takayama and his family after he was injured in an in-ring accident on May 4th 2017.


** The newest entry, Fire Pro Wrestling World in 2017, contains the phrase "rip the [[ForeignCussWord fucking]] mats off" in the entrance theme "Queen of the Planet". However, you'll only be able to hear it clearly if you turn the sound effects (ie, crowd noise) all the way down.

* CaptainErsatz: All the wrestlers in the games look like their RealLife counterparts, the only thing different is the name. This was taken a step further in the GameBoyAdvance games, where all wrestlers under a contract with a US company (Wrestling/{{WWE}}, Wrestling/{{WCW}}, etc.) [[AdaptationDyeJob had their skin, hair, and outfit colors changed]], too.

* ArtificialStupidity: Mostly averted, but the game still has some issues, such as the fact that if count-outs are disabled and the wrestlers both end up out of the ring, they will stay out until there's a lucky Irish whip that sends one of them in and the other follows back in before the former's CPU logic makes him come back out. If you sim a hardcore match, we hope you like neverending outside brawls.
