Time to wear your boxing gloves, to sharpen your sword or to load your gun, be ready to fight, it's too late to give up. Thoughts are powerfull, every battle starts in the mind. Show that you have a tough mental attitude by knocking your enemies out fast and hard.
In a fighting game, you control a character who will face one fighter at a time in a closed space (boxing ring, arena,...). It generally refers to combat sports such as martial arts (kung fu, judo, karate,...), boxing or wrestling.
Nevertheless, your character may be in very different situations, in which he must have to deal with an excessive number of enemies, what would be the case in zombie games for example. He may then pick up items and fight using special skills. Chain together combos to score as many points as you can and don't let your enemies take over.
