The Flying Dragon series, maybe more properly called the Hiryu no Ken series since nearly all of the games in the series were only released in Japan, started in 1985 with Shanghai Kid, an arcade fighter that had a unique gameplay system that prioritized attention to detail over button mashing with a target star that would highlight weak points on the combatants.

After Shanghai Kid, some RPG elements were added, and most Flying Dragon games are straightforward remakes of that very first hybrid action-rpg-fighting game with small differences in gameplay and new graphics, though some offshoot games in this list are straight fighting games with no RPG elements.
