The 7 Weirdest Fighting Game Endings

Bossed it

It must be hard enough making just a handful of endings for your game, just look at how badly Mass Effect 3 stuffed it up. With fighting games boasting rosters of up to 40 characters, all of whom need their own little arc to string together the beatings, that's a lot of endings to write. Perhaps that's why fighting game ending sequences are so frequently completely, unashamedly mental. Hit the jump for the seven weirdest.

Tekken appears to the biggest repeat offender, with characters being kicked into space, hosting semi naked pool parties and hanging around outside orphanages at Christmas. But there's also weird nonsense in Street Fighter and Mortal Kombat ending movies too. Perhaps it's because if there was ever a fighting game that took itself completely seriously, it'd be a nauseating horror show of broken limbs and pulverised faces.
