List Rules Games don't have to be console exclusive, as long as they were released for Nintendo DS at some point.

If you owned a Nintendo DS at any time during your life, then it's safe to say there were probably a few fighting games in your collection. With challenging combos and finishing moves to pull off, fighting games are some of the best multiplayer games you can get your hands on. Franchises like Street Fighter and Mortal Kombat made the genre famous, but today there are a plethora of others that are just as fun. With so many great options to choose from, there was never a shortage of games to play for fans of the genre. Since some games were much better than others, we've decided to rank the best Nintendo DS fighting games of all time.

This list will feature the most popular and best selling fighting games that were released for Nintendo DS. While many of these games were console exclusive, we're allowing non-exclusives to be a part of the list as well. This poll contains items like Bleach: Dark Souls and Jump Ultimate Stars. Vote for your favorite video games below, and feel free to add any that you think deserve to be on the list.
