- Awesome Music: The soundtrack of Final Fight CD, composed by T's Music. The Industrial Area's BGM, for example.
- Complete Monster: Blades and Famine from Streetwise.
- Contemptible Cover: The original SNES port features a cover that is naught but a blank background and an extreme close-up shot of Haggar and a burly Leather Man thug, possibly meant to be Abigail, eyeballing each other. It sends a somewhat different message of what the game is about than Capcom USA probably intended.
- Die for Our Ship: Due to Guy being shipped with both Rose and Ibuki as of Super Street Fighter IV, Rena, a very minor character, is now a major victim of this.
- Ensemble Darkhorse:
- Poison. Fans wanted her to cross to the Street Fighter series so badly, they kept asking producers to put her in the games.
- Epileptic Trees: Thanks to an official artwork of Lucia doing aerobics with Chun-Li, the fact that both are detectives, and the resemblance of her moves to Chun-Li's signature Hyakuretsu Kyaku, it's been implied that Lucia may have trained under Chun-Li or is even friends with her.
- Excuse Plot:
- Final Fight: The mayor's daughter is kidnapped by a gang. The mayor, an already retired pro wrestler, enlists his daughter's boyfriend and his friend, and kick ass and take names.
- Final Fight 2: The mayor's friend's fiancee and master were kidnapped by another gang, and he's joined by his friend's future sister-in-law and a martial artist. They kick ass and take names.
- Final Fight 3: A gang war erupts in the city. The mayor's friend is back, and they're joined by a cop and a mysterious drifter out for revenge. They kick ass and take names.
- Fanon Discontinuity: Streetwise, an attempt to capitalize on the Grand Theft Auto craze, was poorly received by fans and critics, and the series was discontinued itself.
- Hilarious in Hindsight: Mike Haggar... a former pro wrestler? Elected mayor? What's next, Governor?
- Launcher of a Thousand Ships: Although Guy is canonically married to Rena, he was paired with Maki (Rena's younger sister and Guy's rival for the Bushin-ryu succession) Rose, and Ibuki, among others.
- Magnificent Bastard: Father Bella.
- Memetic Badass: MIKE HAGGAR, THE MANLIEST FUCKING MAYOR OF ALL TIME. He will personally punch each and every criminal in the face.
- Nightmare Fuel: Pestilence.
- Porting Disaster: The SNES port of the first game was a borderline case. In terms of sound and graphics it was very close to what the arcade game offered (some even prefer the SNES soundtrack over the arcade original, which used rather harsh instrumentation). On the other hand, Guy (or Cody, depending on the version) was missing in action, there was no two-player mode, one of the levels was left out, and there were generally fewer enemies on the screen at any given time than there were in the arcade version, which messed up the game's balance somewhat. The bowdlerization didn't really help either.
- That One Boss: Abigail.
- The Woobie: Vanessa, after her brother is killed and her bar goes up in flames.
