Top Ten Franchises That Need Fighting GamesFighting games normally have original characters, but every so often, an amazing fighting game with already licensed characters is released. With games like Super Smash Bros. , Marvel vs. Capcom, Playstation All Stars: Battle Royale, and Injustice: Gods Among Us, it's clear that licensed franchises are great subjects to fighting games. There are so many others that just NEED fighting games, and this list is dedicated to them (crossovers included).
The Top Ten
Street Fighter vs. Mortal Kombat may be overdue, but Marvel vs. DC is the next generation of overdue. These companies have been around with us forever, and since they've both been in fighting games AND COMIC CROSSOVERS in the past, there is no excuse... literally NO EXCUSE... for this not to happen. - PeterG99
If there was at least one game that had Hulk vs Superman, Spider-Man vs Static, Wonder Woman vs Captain Marvel, etc oh man that would be awesome.
Magneto vs. Polaris, Joker vs. Goblin, Bats vs. Iron Man. The list goes on. - SapphireDragon95
Hell Yeh! Just imagine. Deadpool vs deadshot. Batman vs iron man. Superman vs hulk. And a great chance for spawn to be dlc. And Thanos and darkseid as preorder dlc characters. Yess!
Something Like Indie Game Battle? - Devonchi
Do I even need to explain? Can you not imagine a fighting game with characters like Quote from Cave Story, Tim from Braid, Commander Video, Super Meat Boy, Shovel Knight, Shantae, Alien Hominid, the Castle Crashers, Hatty Hattington, Captain Viridian... JUST THINK ABOUT IT! And if they have all these companies pitching in, they don't even need a Kickstarter campaign! And you can probably be able to play it on anything! How can you not want this!? - PeterG99
Well Juan and The Drifter are in Brawlout
Super meat boy vs Sans. THINK ABOUT IT
Come on Ed Boon, this is way too overdue! With the releases of Mortal Kombat vs. DC and Injustice, it's clear that you love crossovers, but if you love your fans than you have to do this! For years now, we've awaited this, hoping that one day, Ryu and Scorpion could officially fight. If it actually happens, you can expect to see yourself bathing in money. - PeterG99
Since the 90's, we've been waiting for this...
So much characters! Basically super smash bros. Disney version, then everyone who wants Homer Simpson into smash would be happy.
Disney has been around since the 1930s, and since then, they've had lovable characters, amazing movies, and a dedicated fan-base. With the release of Disney Infinity, it's clear they understand crossovers, so why not a fighting game? Combine old Disney, new Disney, Pixar, and maybe even guests from Marvel, Star Wars, Kingdom Hearts, or even the Muppets, and you've got yourself a money-printing machine. - PeterG99
It should be a Disney Battle Royale
YES! You could settle grudge matches between your favorite characters to see who’s the strongest!
I understand that Star Wars has had several fighting games, but none of the games, and I mean NONE, were very good. Another attempt would be very welcome, and with the help of Disney, we'll surely be surprised. Seriously, Star Wars is one of the most famous, highest grossing, most beloved franchises of all time, and it needs a good fighting game! - PeterG99
That game was okay, but the series still has potential for a better fighting game, especially with Episode VII coming out. - PeterG99
There is a fighting game it is star wars battlefront 2
Star Wars Already had a fighting game it's called Masters of Teras Kasi - s646451
MAsTeRs oF tErAs kAsI exists. - RadioHead03
After seeing that Melee intro parody with Valve characters, I've been thinking... this needs to happen! Not only will it have a massive fan-base, but to have things like the Portal Gun and Gravity Gun in a fighting game would make for one of the most unique ever made. Plus, Team Fortress vs. Counter Strike. - PeterG99
Yes, I can just imagine: GLaDOS against Chell... That would be awesome. - username34
I just want to see the sentries and turrets fight each other. - IAmNotARobot
Morgan Freeman vs GLaDOS - MasterBeef
Especially so the spell casters can use some devastating moves that just annihilate the landscape. - MasterBeef
It appears someone has never heard of Dissidia
Final Fantasy is one of the most beloved video game franchises of all time with some of the most beloved characters of all time, so it makes sense that a fighting game happens, especially with the series failing is recent years. You can play as characters from all of the games, to make the Black Mage fight the White Mage or... better yet... make Aeris fight Sepiroth! Make him pay for all those tears! - PeterG99
What do you want?! A game like Smash Bros or Mario + Rabbids : Kingdom Battle or something?!
Not everyone is Mario though MasterCreepy. He means a Mario Fighting Game with ONLY Mario Characters.
You guys do realize the Super Smash Bros series exists, right? - MasterCreepy
You obviously haven't heard of Smash Bros - MarioBros11
@fwed it is a franchise and we need a fighting game with just zelda characters. Link, Zelda, Ganon, Gerudos, Zoras, Gorons, Midna, Fi, etc
Not a franchise, it is Nintendo and that has SSB what else do you want people - fwed
I'd love a fighter ala Soul Caliber but with just Zelda characters
Skull kid kill shiek
Nintendo and Sony have them, even Sega had one when they were still in the console business, why not Microsoft?
Microsoft should make a fighting game. They literally have EVERYTHING but a fighting game. - MarioBros11
Master Chief vs Banjo-Kazooie. All I'm saying. - MasterBeef
I believe this has been done. It was called Capcom Fighting Evolution (Capcom Fighting Jam in Japan). And before that, there was Pocket Fighter (aka Super Gem Fighter).
They already have Marvel vs Capcom, which is fun!
Capcom is the master of tournament fighters. The company has had PLENTY of crossovers in the past with Marvel and SNK, but to have a standalone Capcom crossover with the roster size of MvC3 would be amazing. Imagine a fighting game with all of the characters from all 3 MvC games, and more! - PeterG99
They have super brawl available on the browser nothing else to say but fun game to play but boring to tap two bottoms every fight until the special will get loaded to attack.
Cartoon Network had Punch Time Explosion, so why can't Nickelodeon have a shot at a fighting game? To combine the old, classic 90's Nick with the more modern Nick could give us the opportunity to battle with characters from SpongeBob, Ren and Stimpy, Danny Phantom, Invader Zim, and much more! Nickelodeon has made crossovers in the past, and now it's time for the ultimate one. - PeterG99
Nicktoons REALLY NEEDS a crossover console fighter. While we do have the Super Brawl flash games, they are as shallow as a kiddie pool. So a console game would be pretty cool. - KurisuTanoshidesu
This...already has one on Nickelodeon's website. Though, a MK or Smash style with good damage calculations would be better. Or even a pokemonshowdown modulator. - SapphireDragon95
Mega Man fighting game could have Mega Man, Proto Man, Bass, Duo, Roll, and a wide selection of Robot Masters as well as the Mega Man Killers, Genesis Unit, and Stardroids. You can get items from Eddie, or purchase them at Auto's Shop.
Story: Dr Cossack makes a tournament with a prize of 10000000000 Zenny. Each robot joined for there own reason. Mega man joins because Wily submitted the Mega Man Killer into the contest
It could be called Mega Man Clash or something - MarioBros11
Smash Bros exists
Okay, so Kirby has had 2 fighting mini-games, but there needs to be a full priced retail Kirby Fighters with MORE THAN KIRBY as fighters.
Did you forget Kirby Battle Royale exists?
Battle Royale is a thing
Super. Smash. Bros. Exists.
Sounds like someone never heard of Pokken Tournament.
It is the. Best
Pokémon has already had a fighting game
Bruh... pokemon is a fighting game...
Caillou Vs. Madeline. Enough Said. - Rainbowkid38
100% YES Family Guy vs American Dad vs Cleveland Show vs Rick and Morty - Zindondiddlybop
I mean come on the roster family guy versus aqua teen - SOUTHPARKFANHH
Peter griffin main in the making
Are you kidding? This would suck so... it has no poten... okay, this would be awesome! - PeterG99
You have over five hundred characters to choose from. It isn't that hard. - MasterBeef
Maybe then the "too much Fire Emblem in Smash" whiners will shut up
Just imagine it. Smash isn't big enough for this amazing series!
We be seen games based on there toys like transformers fall of cybertron. but I think a fighting with all there characters from there toys and board games would be the most fun. imagine all the crazy match ups and stages to do it in. cobra commander vs. Action man in ponyville. mr. Potato head vs Mr. Monopoly in candy land. maybe making it even crazier and adding summons like snake eyes and furby or using items like a super soaker. And maybe even but dlc for mattel so you can fight as he man or barbie. Just not in the. main game or but more dlc for stuff like playmates. it sounds crazy but think about if you want it. we thought so
Sonic made his fighting debut in Sonic Unleashed. And it was awesome.
Seriously, can't you people do any research? - MasterCreepy
Sonic the Hedgehog has had a few fighting games, and was even is Smash Bros, but to have a standalone 2D Sonic fighting game with an updated engine and better physics would give Sega so much money. This is also SEGA's chance to revive long-forgotten Sonic characters, like Tikal and the Tails Do... no, that's going too far. - PeterG99
Do you even remember Sonic the Fighters?
A really obscure one for this list, Garo is a Tokusatsu series created in 2005 by Keita Amemiya (who was involved in various shows, movies and video games designs such as Onimusha 2 and Shin Megami Tensei 3 ). The series currently has 5 seasons, a few films and an anime (with a second one releasing soon). With it's wide range of characters, you could play as either a Makai Knight, a Makai Priest or the many established villains and Horrors. This series only had one game, but I would love to see a fighting game based on this series.
This needs to be a thing! Also, imagine this, Sans vs Undyne.
Kill the ponies
If only Hasbro didn't cease & desist "Fighting is Magic" - in its final production stages, no less!
Yep! - SapphireDragon95
uhhh no... - MasterCreepy
I don't think Minecraft really needs any fighting because of how bad the physics and fighting style is (spam click) but since the 1.9 combat update is coming, maybe.
Except I hate watching Minecraft gaming videos. - IAmNotARobot
This is the dumbest thing I have ever heard
What? You mean like YouTubers fight? Like skydoesminecraft vs bajancanadia?
HELL NO - MarioBros11
I didn't see it earlier and so I put this on here myself, so my bad, but if you look at it, you'll see what I think. - AdamAlkynian
With great characters, settings and enjoyable fighting sequences I see no reason why this amazing series can't have it's own fighting game!
Yes! - SapphireDragon95
Imagine beating the hell out of your biggest enemy with a gigantic scythe that is also a GUN!
I'm a big fan of the series, and I would much love to see a 1v1 style game of this, but they do have crossovers with them. - AdamAlkynian
If this Danganronpa had a fighting game then it would be hilarious
Here's one franchise I can see working as an over the top fighting game, with it's colorful cast of characters, it would be fun seeing these characters interacting and duke it out. Maybe have some interesting finishers/executions depending if the player wants to spare them or not. Just throwing some ideas out there.
*facepalms* *smirks* *giggles* *laughs* - Gehenna
While Power Rangers technically did have a fighting game, I would like to see them make another one, this time with the other established Rangers from over the past 22 years.
Yes Yes Yes! Totally with you, Gumball vs Tobias!
If we could remake that one scene in "The Words" that would be awesome! Also imagine fighting a robot as a fairy! That would be the definition of creative! Plus it'd be the first stand alone TAWOG game on consoles!
YES - MarioBros11
Uh...it already HAS many fighting games... - MarioBros11
Well, in Nintendoland, there's a Metroid game, and there's a versus mode, so technically there is a Metroid fighting game. - MarioBros11
Yeah, so much characters, and a chance to use beast boy as a test dummy
It's a fignting game that nude franchise such as estival verses, deep crimson 2, skirting shadows etc. You suppose to fight with ninja girls when you face them with any outfits they wear. They have finishing moves, combat abilities and what the fighting has to offer. If you mean to make a crossover, well the gaming franchise should crossover with dead or alive series because are both nude fighting games. Senran kagura it's a fighting game with ninja weapons and dead or alive is a traditional fighting game. Also they have different type of games senran kagura peach ball which is a pinball game, bonappetit a music game which the plot of the game it's about facing opponents on a cooking challenge and beach splash a splatoon rip off that you shoot with coloured water to wet somebody's clothes to win.
Believe it or not, I saw this one coming for some reason.
This is a great idea! They have many gems with creative designs. SU may suffer from a villain problem, but maybe when the show ends, you can make the game with it's designated villain. - SapphireDragon95
STEVEN UNIVERSE IS AWESOMMMEEE! 1111one
To be honest, I'd like to see a ModNation Fighting game.
Yay we can beat those bitches up in a fighting game - MarioBros11
Whoever added this must've seen that one viral devArt image. You know the one.
I dunno, I just see it somehow. It's not exactly a franchise, but it works. come on, LET ME BEAT THE HECK OUT OF MY ENEMIES WITH STAR'S WAND!
