This is the first game in the Art of Fighting series. For other games in the series see the Art of Fighting category.

Art of Fighting (known as Ryuko no Ken in Japan, which translates to "Fist of the Dragon and Tiger") is a trilogy of competitive fighting game titles that were released for the Neo Geo platform in the early 1990s. It was the second fighting game franchise created by SNK, following the Fatal Fury series and is set in the same fictional universe. The original Art of Fighting was released in 1992, followed by two sequels: Art of Fighting 2 in 1994 and The Path of the Warrior: Art of Fighting 3 in 1996. While no sequel has been produced since the third game, the characters have survived through their inclusion in the King of Fighters series.

It was the first fighting game by SNK to feature the character designs of former SNK illustrator (and current Capcom illustrator) Shinkiro, who would go on to do the character designs for the later Fatal Fury and The King of Fighters games.
