Ring Out Fighters

Health Based Platform Fighters
Health System Games; Ring Outs can still be possible with these types of games, but they should only deplete health or inconvenience players. As an example, if a game counts a Ring Out as an Instant Death, it is not a Health Based Platform Fighter

Hybrid Fighters
Health and Ring Out System; to reiterate, the difference between a Hybrid and a Health system with Ring Outs is that a Hybrid would count a Ring Out as an Instant Kill or a point, whilst a Health Fighter with RO’s will deplete a player’s health instead. It may count as a kill if a player has low enough health, but only in that instance.

Anime Platform Fighters
These titles seem to take after the Jump Stars series in that they’re primarily portable and have options for assists. Another element that separates them from regular Platform Fighters is the camera system; whilst it is likely due to the portable format, these titles tend to have cameras that follow a single player (rather than having a dynamic camera that attempts to show all players at once)

TMNT: Smash Up

Projectile/Item Focused Fighters
A unique type of Platform Fighter that has a focus on Projectiles and lacks the extensive movesets of other, Smash-inspired Platform Fighters. Despite the placing of Outfoxies on this list, most of the other games here are still more Smash inspired than they are by Outfoxies.
