As a die hard fighting game fan. You realize most of the tournaments are  one big death trap. so  i have listed 5 of the most dangerous tournaments.












the world fighting tournament  is definitely the safest combat tournament in Fighting game Lore.   all of the contenders are normal humans that use real martial arts styles. No competitors have died during the tournament and the most you will have to worry about is the gynoid super human you may have to fight at the end of the tournament.

4.The World Warrior Tournament ( Street fighter series)















Considering the cast of these tournaments are mainly varying degrees of fighters and killers, The Tournament itself is pretty tame. usually most of the fighters have some form of  vendetta to settle with another character.  More than likely if they settle their score before the finals the fighter may drop out the tournament. the only real dangerous element of this tournament is the varying host.  The second Tournament was held by a Dictator in  training with plans to rule or Conquer the world.  The 3rd tournament was held by a religious mad man.

3 King of the Iron Fist  (tekken)











The soap opera which is the “king of the iron fist” tournament.  Seriously if you looked at the character history for fighters in this game you would think you were watching a soap opera unfold. First off, the Tournament is always hosted by probably the most dysfunctional family in videogame history, The Mishima family.  It all starts with heihachi Mishima. In a effort to rid his son Kazuya of “weakness, Heihachi throws Kayuza into a ravine.Kazuya survivied by making a deal with the devil and returned to get revenge only to be thrown into a volcano. years later, Heihachi attempts to kill Kazuya’s son Jin  and  Kazuya himself who was brought back to life by scientist. Now Jin has control of the tournament and literally has caused World war 3 just for his amusement.

aside from the Mishimas, you would have to contend with Cyborgs, Ninjas, Mechs, Devils,and Angels . not to mention the 6th tournament is taking place during World War 3.  you are definitely better off sitting this tournament out.

2.EHRGEIZ Tournament (Ehrgeiz)












The ehrgeiz tournament is a fighting tournament that takes the saying NO-HOLDS-BARRED to a extreme. Everything and anything is legal in this tournament including All forms of martial arts,melee weapons(swords,axes,spears,) Magic spells,projectile weapons(Guns,Bazookas, grenade launchers,) Explosives.If you can carry it to the ring you can use it. I am sure their is a high mortality rate in this tournament. However, what is the prize in risking your life in this Tournament? a Ancient sword is your trophy and prize. Definitely not worth the trouble if you ask me.







1. The King of fighters( art of fighting,fatal fury, The king of fighters)








And Finally THE KING OF FIGHTERS.  Originally starting out as a small time Tournament held in the Fictional city of Southtown. The First K.O.F Tournament took place in Art of fighting 2(  although game wise it appeared in fatal fury first). The tournament has primarily been hosted by The most powerful crime boss in Southtown Geese Howard.  Later the Tournament would be handed off to Geese’s half  brother Wolfgang Krauser and then to Geese’s brother-in-law  Kian R. Heinlein.  Soon The Tournament would Become its own game series(The king of Fighters). This time around the Tournament would Adapt a team battle format. Which means you would have to go through All sorts of trouble to find suitable partners. The Tournments host would become increasingly more dangerous and powerful as Time goes on. The most powerful Opposition you will face in  a K.O.F is the Supreme deity Orochi. I definitely would not sign up for a tournament  that would  have you fight against a God at the end of it.
