  • Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

 "This battle is about to explode!"

"This is gonna be a match to remember!"

- Capcom vs. SNK 2's announcer before a fight.

During the height of the Fighting Game popularity, one of Capcom's biggest competitors was SNK, creators of the Neo Geo console and arcade system, who challenged Street Fighter's dominance with a wide array of linked and standalone games and series, culminating with their own Massive Multiplayer Crossover, The King of Fighters. Naturally, in 1999 and 2000, the inevitable happened, and the two companies came together to both make separate Fighting Games based on the concept.

The fighting games of this series, so far, are these:

SNK also developed three card battle games based on the concept, the most recent for the Nintendo DS ending the SNK series as a whole and notoriously containing a Game Breaking Bug.

Examples of the series in general:
  • Demoted to Extra: Characters such as Robert Garcia, Mature, Daimon, Yang and Andy get only passing mentions, assist roles, or cameos, in the entire Capcom vs. SNK series. This is very noticeable in the SNK side, because most of the Ko F teams (sans the Women Fighters Team) are incomplete in the games. for example, the Art of Fighting Team lacks Robert, the Fatal Fury Team lacks Andy, the Japan Team lacks Goro Daimon, the Villain Team lacks Billy Kane, and so on. Chang also shares his moveset with Choi in Capcom vs. SNK 2, but Choi got into SVC Chaos with Chang only getting cameos.
  • Dialogue Tree: The games are full of this, with stuff like Geese throwing a Reppuuken at Bison to blow his cape away.
  • Loads and Loads of Characters: The Card Fighters games. Of course, being digital trading card games, the characters themselves don't appear per se.
