Fight King (also known as Fight to the Fight in Japan and Special Rivals in Europe and Australia) is a crossover fighting game produced and released by Lunatic Entertainment.
Its name is not intended to connect it to The King of Fighters series any greater than its connection to other fighting games.
Fight King has a large selection of fighters, and takes two characters from every franchise (with the exception of large franchises such as Mortal Kombat, Street Fighter, and Dragon Ball, which each feature four), with one character being male and the other female, when applicable. Not all fighting game franchises are supported, but a large number are.
Notably, each character plays like they do in their original franchise, with special attributes from each franchise such as fatalities, destroys, power stone transformations, et cetera, still being an option; however they are only usable for characters from those franchises. Also, in certain cases their HP and strength are tweaked to make characters more equal in battle. The game also took very minimal liberties with some of the characters: For instance, because of the actual size of Primal Rage characters in relation to regular-height humans (being Daikaiju similar to Godzilla), they are instead shrank down to a more manageable, size, being referred to as "Son of ____ / Lil' ____" instead, and while being exactly like the original characters are technically a new one due to this.
Because they created the game, Lunatic Entertainment slipped in characters from their own fighting games, as well.
Fight King was well-received among fans, with the inclusion of some more obscure series being praised. It received a nomination for "Best Third Party Crossover Fighting Game, Q1 2015".
