The Tokyo Showdown is the first live album by Swedish melodic death metal band In Flames. It was recorded during their Japanese tour in 2000 at their show in Tokyo. During their performance of "Scorn" they incorporated the opening riffs of Slayer's "Raining Blood."

The album title was inspired by the action film Showdown in Little Tokyo.
