Common themes in classic fighting games

After the incredible success of Street Fighter 2, many developers released one-on-one fighters using Capcom's flagship series as a model.

Over the years, gamemakers added their own innovations to the genre, but never strayed too far from Capcom's winning formula. Let's take a look at eight common features found in many popular fighting games.

The story is too old to be commented.

Okay, since so many classic fighters share these common themes, why not...mash them all up. I wanna see these screenshots made into a real game. None of this one on one or three on three. I want every character vs. every character all the time, I want it to be balanced so there's no unfair combination of fighters. THIS IS ALL POSSIBLE, RIGHT?

Which fighting game introduced super moves? I know it wasn't Street Fighter 2.

Art of Fighting. You needed to complete a bonus round to be able to use the super though. I think Super Street Fighter 2: Turbo was the first to have the super bar though.
