Fire Pro Wrestling is a long-running professional wrestling video game series originating from Japan, started in 1989 by Human Entertainment and continued by Spike in 2000.
- The Fire Pro Wrestling series of games distinguish themselves from other wrestling games by combining several unique features. One feature is the focus on a timing-based grappling control system, which encourages the use of complex strategy, built on working up to using increasingly powerful moves on your opponent.
- The timing-based system stands in contrast to the button-mashing tactics with which most 2D wrestling gamers are familiar.
- Another feature of Fire Pro Wrestling games is the inclusion of a large roster of wrestlers from different promotions around the world, representing many different styles of professional wrestling: from North American WWE style sports-entertainment, Mexican lucha-libre to various styles of Japanese puroresu: athletic junior-heavyweight style, realistic strong-style, womens' joshi wrestling, and violent hardcore wrestling, as well as different styles of shoot fighting and mixed martial arts.
