DescriptionThe streets of Metro City are filled with criminals who are part of a gang called Mad Gear. Former wrestler and newly elected mayor Mike Haggar tries to do something about it, much to the displeasure of the Mad Gear Gang who kidnap his daughter Jessica. Only three people are brave enough to venture into the crime-infested streets and try to bring Jessica back.
Final Fight is a 2D side-scrolling fighting game. Taking on the role of either Cody, Guy, or the mayor Mike Haggar himself, you must advance through six areas of the city clearing out the gang infestation. You will have to cope with a variety of thugs, ranging from firebomb-throwing maniacs to behemoth wrestlers. To defeat these thugs, you have an arsenal of punches, kicks, throws, and jump kicks at your disposal.
SNES port offers only two playable characters: Cody and Haggar. It is also single player only. Later, Final Fight Guy was released in which Cody was replaced with Guy.

DevelopmentCapcom firstly designed Final Fight to be the sequel to Street Fighter named Street Fighter '89, but they changed their minds and decided to give the game a new name and start a new series.
- All home computer versions of Final Fight include a shot of the Mayor's daughter tied up in her underwear during the opening sequence, which was only seen in Japanese arcades (it was censored in Europe and America).
- The female gang members (Poison/Roxy, etc.) haven't had much luck appearing in the home ports of the game. All the Nintendo versions replaced them completely with male enemies (this includes the recent GBA remake, at least the US version) and while they appear in some rare ports they can only be found with edited clothing. Only the rare Japanese SEGA CD version shows them in their original form.
- In the Super Nintendo port, the names of some bosses were changed (Damnd became Thrasher and Sodom became Katana). The censorship also cut the whiskey from the list of power ups and took away all female enemies of the game, leaving only men.
- In the arcade version after destroying the car (bonus area), a character comes along and cries "Oh My God!". On the Super Nintendo this was changed to "Oh My Car!"
Wrestling connectionThe enemy Andore was based on a wrestler called Andre the Giant. The story of Mike Haggar also has a parallel with the story of former wrestler Jesse Ventura, who left the ring to become governor in Minnesota. Information also contributed by Depth Lord, Perfil Falso and Zovni.
