Not only did Nintendo's little purple box of joy come with its strong lineup of amazing first-party games, but it also featured a ton of unique and sometimes innovative titles from third-party publishers across a wide variety of genres. Speaking of genres, fighting games didn't get a ton of love on the GameCube.

The GameCube software library features one of the greatest, most competitive platform fighters of all time, which counts for something! Now join us as we take a look at the 14 best fighting games on GameCube.
