Final Fight Revenge is an 1999 arcade game and the fifth release in the Final Fight series. Its tagline is "Violent Storm Rising". A Sega Saturn port was released only in Japan on March 30, 2000, where it was the second-to-last game officially released for the platform. The game was developed by the same American team that later produced Maximo: Ghosts to Glory and Final Fight: Streetwise.
Final Fight Revenge, despite its high collectibility factor (and hefty price tag), remains the least favorite entry in the series. Complaints ranged from "blocky" graphics, and players feeling like they were fighting each other in zero gravity.
Final Fight Revenge is very similar to Street Fighter with the same mechanics such as the "Super Bar" and the "Stun" mechanic (which is done by hitting the opponent multiple times successfully or getting hit by Belger's vomit attack once). What differs Final Fight Revenge from Street Fighter is Weapons which can be picked up and used against opponents for melee or ranged attacks. There are different types of weapons like the Poison Claw which increases rang in attacks and increases Poison's attack power, or the Freeze Gun that freezes opponents, the Bow Gun which launches fire arrows can be used for rang, or the War Hammer which can easily stun opponents. Some characters even start of the match with their signature weapon such as Sodom and his Katana, Edi. E and his Police Stick and Rolento and his Staff. But, if the character with a weapon is hit even if they're the character who starts with the weapon will drop it then the other character can pick it up and use it against them.

The plot of Final Fight Revenge takes place between the original Final Fight and Street Fighter Alpha 3. The Mad Gear Gang, wishing to reestablish themselves as a force of menace in Metro City, is looking to rebuild itself.

- This is the first Final Fight title to abandon the series' previous 2-D scrolling style, and instead featured polygonal models for the playable characters. However, the poor design of the polygonal models was one of the reasons that the game was generally not well received by fans.
