Fatal Fury Special is a clone of Fatal Fury 2 with a few but important improvements:
  • a very effective knock combo system was implemented, which then characterized all the subsequent chapters of the saga;
  • the shots have been weakened, and therefore more shots are needed to bring down the opponent;
  • the game is faster than Fatal Fury 2;
  • it is possible to select the wrestler among 15 different characters, and for each of them there is a clone with different colors; the four bosses of Fatal Fury 2 are now also selectable, as well as three characters retrieved from Fatal Fury and adapted graphically, namely Tung Fu Rue, Duck King and Geese Howard.
The game is very long because to finish it you need to defeat all fifteen selectable characters, including the clone of your character. If you win all the challenges without ever losing a round (you can lose a match and then continue with a new credit) you will enter a further meeting, a Dream Match where the player will face Ryo Sakazaki Art of Fighting: is the first reference at the intersection of the plots of the two videogames, where the events narrated in Art of Fighting precede those of Fatal Fury. If you end the game without ever continuing with new credits you will see a special ending that involves all the characters in the game.
