Anime/Cell-Shaded Fighting games
These fighting games that feature Cell-Shading mostly falls into the anime category. Even though anime falls into this category of cell shaded fighting games, there are some anime games that are 2D and use sprites(Examples are Dragonball Z for the Super Famicom). With this said, most anime games are played mostly the same. Normally having one button for each action (Ex. 1 button for attacking, using projectiles, using specials, jumping, blocking, etc.). This is most likely due to the games being more player friendly for the kids who like the shows. Even though Super Smash Bros. series has the same game play scheme, it is exempt from this Cell- Shaded feature.
