Top Ten Franchises That Need Fighting Games

Fighting 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
Marvel vs. DC

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.

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!

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.

This would be epic! Marvel vs Capcom is alright,but I'd prefer DC vs Marvel(I prefer DC to Capcom),but Marvel and DC are rival companies so not much hope.It'd be awesome if they did this as Injustice 3,and introduced a huge roster of Marvel characters and a few more DC characters.

Indie Games

Looks like people forgot about undertale and it's rpg fighting style (According to google, it says undertale is an indie game for some reason-)

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

Something Like Indie Game Battle?

Street Fighter vs. Mortal Kombat

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...

Disney The Walt Disney Company, commonly known as Disney, is an American diversified multinational mass media and entertainment conglomerate headquartered at the Walt Disney Studios in Burbank, California.

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!

Star Wars Star Wars Product Image

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.

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

The Legend of Zelda The Legend of Zelda Product Image

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

We need a fighting game with just Zelda characters. Link, Zelda, Ganon, Gerudos, Zoras, Gorons, Midna, Fi, etc

Valve Valve Corporation is an American video game developer, publisher and digital distribution company headquartered in Bellevue, Washington.

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.

I just want to see the sentries and turrets fight each other.

Yes, I can just imagine: GLaDOS against Chell... That would be awesome.

Morgan Freeman vs GLaDOS

Final Fantasy Final Fantasy Product Image

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!

Especially so the spell casters can use some devastating moves that just annihilate the landscape.

It appears someone has never heard of Dissidia

Mario Mario Product Image

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.


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.

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.

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.

The Contenders
Capcom Capcom Co., Ltd., or Capcom, is a Japanese developer and publisher of video games, known for creating multi-million-selling franchises such as Mega Man, Street Fighter, Resident Evil, Devil May Cry, Ace Attorney, and Monster Hunter, as well as highly successful games based on the Disney animated properties. more.

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!

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!

Mega Man Mega Man Product Image

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

Smash Bros exists

Microsoft Microsoft Corporation is an American multinational technology company headquartered in Redmond, Washington, that develops, manufactures, licenses, supports and sells computer software, consumer electronics and personal computers and services.

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.

Pokemon Pokemon Product Image

Sounds like someone never heard of Pokken Tournament.

Pokémon has already had a fighting game

Bruh... pokemon is a fighting game...

It is the. Best

Fire Emblem Fire Emblem Product Image

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 the Hedgehog Sonic the Hedgehog, trademarked Sonic The Hedgehog, is the title character and protagonist of the Sonic the Hedgehog series released by SEGA, as well as numerous spin-off comics, five animated shows, and an animated OVA.

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.

Sonic made his fighting debut in Sonic Unleashed. And it was awesome.
Seriously, can't you people do any research?

Do you even remember Sonic the Fighters?

I loved sonic unleashed. two words: werewolf sonic enough said

Adult Swim

Are you kidding? This would suck so... it has no poten... okay, this would be awesome!

I mean come on the roster family guy versus aqua teen

Peter griffin main in the making

Yes on so many levels.

Undertale Undertale Product Image

This needs to be a thing! Also, imagine this, Sans vs Undyne.

Yeah also Sans vs Undyne would be epic.

Persona 5 Persona 5 Product Image

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.

RWBY RWBY is an American 3D web series created by Monty Oum for Rooster Teeth. The show is set in the fictional world of Remnant, where young people train to become Huntsmen and Huntresses to protect their world from the creatures of Grimm.

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.

Imagine beating the hell out of your biggest enemy with a gigantic scythe that is also a GUN!

Clicker Heroes
Kirby Kirby Product Image

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

um we have kirby battle royale and kirby fighters 2

The Amazing World of Gumball The Amazing World of Gumball is a British-Australian-German-American-Irish children's animated television series created by Ben Bocquelet for Cartoon Network.

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!

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

Senran Kagura

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.
