There are a good amount of anime fighting games, but which truly deserve to be called the best? Let's find out by ranking the best anime fighting games of all time, with the help of your votes.

One of the most popular anime fighting games right now is Dragon Ball FighterZ. Fans of DBZ had been dying for a traditional 2D fighter for years, and Bandai Namco finally delivered with this breakout hit in the beginning of 2018. Another new anime fighting game is Naruto to Boruto: Shinobi Strikers, which lets two teams of four fight in an insane eight-person online battle. What kind of anime fighting game should you play if you're a fan of all shonen anime? Check out Jump Ultimate Stars, a game that pits many fighters from Jump manga against each other, including characters from Naruto, One Piece, and even Death Note.
