Jackie Chan in Fists of Fire is a 1995 arcade fighting game by Kaneko. It is the sequel to Jackie Chan: The Kung-Fu Master. It features nine characters, three of whom are variations of Jackie Chan from his various films. Fists of Fire features digitized graphics similar to Mortal Kombat or SF: The Movie The Game.

The community plays on Fightcade 2. More info can be found by joining the Discord in the info box.


There are 4 regional versions of Fists of Fire, all of which are accessible from the arcade board's service menu. (video)

  • USA/Europe: The "default" version for the purpose of comparison and the version that is used in Fightcade.
  • Japan: Adds a copyright warning at the beginning, but otherwise identical.
  • Southeast Asia (SEA): Jackie Chan speaks Chinese in the voiceover. Otherwise, it is identical to the USA/Europe version.
  • Korea: Uses the SEA voiceover, and has a universal damage increase of about 15% compared to all other versions. This damage buff applies regardless of which damage setting is chosen in the game configuration. Also, the Kaneko logo is changed to KA + a picture of a cat (a pun referencing "Neko", the Japanese word for "cat")

Changes from The Kung-Fu Master Jackie Chan

The following list outlines major changes between Kung-Fu-Master (KFM) and Fists of Fire:

Visual/Aesthetic Changes

  • Different colors
  • Different HUD (timer, character portraits, health bars, added Super meter)
  • Stages change color/lighting between rounds
  • Removed Mortal Kombat-style "Finish Them" screen--taunts in KFM change the opponent into an animal
  • Changed how arcade mode progression is done

Gameplay Changes

  • Timer: round length significantly reduced
  • All 3 versions of Jackie Chan became playable
  • New attacks given to every character
  • Properties of old attacks changed (especially projectiles, which were largely removed)
  • Added a Super meter, removing the old "desperation" attacks (essentially Supers that could be done repeatedly while at low health)
  • Overall gameplay speed significantly slowed down (walks, jumps, move animations)
  • Added a limited juggle system
  • Added rolls and invincible attacks on wakeup
  • Added OTG (off the ground) attacks on knocked down opponents, who gained the ability to mash for faster wakeup
  • Added many command normals (including an overhead for each character)
  • "Rapid-Fire" normals changed to conform to the standard chain system (no longer able to chain 2LP > 2LK > 2LP, for example)
  • 5LP no longer a proximity normal, now leads to Autocombos
  • Added enhanced "mashed" special moves (formerly, only Kim-Maree's HP Throw had this)
  • Removed knockdowns from sweeps, significantly changing their utility
  • Added "spike" property to many air heavy normals
  • Changed properties of High normals vs crouching opponents, making hitbox interactions much more consistent (overall a nerf to high attacks)
  • Charge moves changed no longer require charging (Thorsten)
