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.
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.
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?
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!?
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.
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.
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!
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
MAsTeRs oF tErAs kAsI exists.
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.
Yes, I can just imagine: GLaDOS against Chell... That would be awesome.
I just want to see the sentries and turrets fight each other.
Morgan Freeman vs GLaDOS
Especially so the spell casters can use some devastating moves that just annihilate the landscape.
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!
@fwed it is a franchise and we need a fighting game with just zelda characters. Link, Zelda, Ganon, Gerudos, Zoras, Gorons, Midna, Fi, etc
I'd love a fighter ala Soul Caliber but with just Zelda characters
Not a franchise, it is Nintendo and that has SSB what else do you want people
Skull kid kill shiek
What do you want?! A game like Smash Bros or Mario + Rabbids : Kingdom Battle or something?!
You guys do realize the Super Smash Bros series exists, right?
You obviously haven't heard of Smash Bros
Not everyone is Mario though MasterCreepy. He means a Mario Fighting Game with ONLY Mario Characters.
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!
two TV shows that are alike
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.
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.
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.
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.
It could be called Mega Man Clash or something
Smash Bros exists
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
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.
Master Chief vs Banjo-Kazooie. All I'm saying.
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...
100% YES Family Guy vs American Dad vs Cleveland Show vs Rick and Morty
I mean come on the roster family guy versus aqua teen
Peter griffin main in the making
Are you kidding? This would suck so... it has no poten... okay, this would be awesome!
You have over five hundred characters to choose from. It isn't that hard.
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!
Sonic made his fighting debut in Sonic Unleashed. And it was awesome.
Seriously, can't you people do any research?
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.
Do you even remember Sonic the Fighters?
Yeah also Sans vs Undyne would be epic.
This needs to be a thing! Also, imagine this, Sans vs Undyne.
sans Vs. OMEGA FLOWEY
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.
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.
This should be good and I look forward to using Darwin and that one eyed robot to destroy the city
Yes Yes Yes! Totally with you, Gumball vs Tobias!
Yay we can finally beat the hell outta 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!
With great characters, settings and enjoyable fighting sequences I see no reason why this amazing series can't have it's own fighting game!
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.
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.
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.
