There are plenty of fighting games with rosters worth remembering, and we all love a good crossover title that mixes things up, but there's something truly special about the fighting game cameo that gets me excited. Whether it's the non-canon explanations on how they got there, or the fish out of water quality that they bring to the aesthetic, there's something about bizarre characters showing up to beat down genre veterans that just can't be topped. There have been plenty over the years (heck, you could make a full game out of all cameos in Soul Calibur), but there are a few that stand out for being just a little more awesome than the rest. Whether they're better suited for the scenario, or just too cool to ignore, these are the best fighting game cameos.
