Name of Fighting game [Solved]

Can't think of the name of that arcade game you used to play? This is the place to ask!

Try with "Art of fighting", the fatso seems to be the second enemy, the asian guy in red sounds like Ryo Sakasaki.

I'm thinking along the same lines. The first character that came to mind from the new description of the fatso was Jack Turner, from Art of Fighting 1 & 2. Check him out:

Jack Turner - http://snk.wikia.com/wiki/Jack_Turner

There is also a boxer in Art of Fighting 1 & 2, Mickey Rogers:

Mickey Rogers - http://snk.wikia.com/wiki/Mickey_Rogers

It's also interesting that in the first Art of Fighting, if you played versus the computer you could only choose from two characters, Ryo or Robert.

The first straw hat guy I think of is in a different game, though, Sokaku Mochizuki from Fatal Fury series:

Thanks. Nope, not this one either... Remember this one too. I've tried all your suggestions, that's why I discard them. But I must say your knowledge in the subject is epic!

Thanks! :hello:

No worries, it's good to get some of these obvious games out of the way before casting around for the more obscure ones.

A couple more straw hat guys I remembered, both from The Last Blade series, Zantetsu and Genbu:

Zantetsu - http://snk.wikia.com/wiki/Zantetsu

Genbu - http://snk.wikia.com/wiki/Okina_no_Genbu

Probably not the game you're looking for, but it continues the process of elimination.

Thanks, but no. Not either of them. Perhaps I remember wrong. I 'm not sure about the straw hat. I know he had a long pigtail, black haired. A part of my memory sais he could use this pig tail as a weapon, but that might come from another game.

The Savage Reign series does have one fatso, Gordon Bowman, a police officer:

Gordon Bowman - http://snk.wikia.com/wiki/Gordon_Bowman

Not much else from those games fits the description, though.

A long, black pigtail reminds of Lee Rekka, a Shaolin monk from The Last Blade series:

Lee Rekka - http://snk.wikia.com/wiki/Lee_Rekka

The Last Blade doesn't have any fatso characters, though.

Both of those are weapons-based fighting games, too, which also doesn't seem to be fitting.

I haven't had time to do a proper search in MAME yet. Everything I've posted so far is from memory. My weekend is here now so I can dig a bit deeper over the next few days.

I don't think so. Fyfasen hasn't mentioned female characters in any of his recollections.

Hierophant suggested a lot of the things that came to my mind first. It's pretty famous so I hesitate to suggest this, but maybe Fatal Fury?

Beyond that, there's not much more to suggest. Your description is basically every late 80's to early 90's fighting game.
