Looking for a list of the best Android fighting games that you can play on your phone or tablet? Look no further, here is a list of 25 top fighting games.

Wanna fight? Of course you don't. We're all civilised people of poise and restraint here, and we'd rather not get our trousers dirty.

But do you wanna play a fighting game? Of course you do. If you're anything like us, the invitation to wreak virtual violence on another entity is difficult to resist.

Working out your frustrations by introducing digital fist to pixellated face is a time-honoured coping mechanism. And we could all do with some of that old school stress release right now.

The following list of fighting games is surprisingly diverse. We've got scrolling scrappers, single-screen beat-'em-ups, arena brawlers, and plenty of other stuff that slips into the gaps in between.

They're all fighting games, though, and they can all be played on your Android phone or tablet. Can't see your favourite? Pick a fight in the comments section below, if you think you're hard enough.
