November Quiz - Clues #1

The fists and kicks and sparks are flying - Thirty people are already eagerly dishing out in this end-of-the-year skirmish! In the November round, many of the most famous this genre has to offer are already out in the first row, exclusively world-famous series with considerably more than a handful of games, all of them million sellers.
So let's get into the ring, round 2: After all, the month is already more than half over...

Here come the first clues:

1) Number 4 and number 5 are famous fighting games from Namco's portfolio.
2) In game #7 only animals fight, in #8 and #10 only women fight - all in 2D.
3) #12 is a 90s title where polygonal robots compete (on PC & Playstations).
4) In #15 you see the N64 entry of yet another well-known fighting series.

Deadline is Wednesday the 30th November, enter via http://www.retrogamequiz.com/.

Here's the quiz again - round 2, fight: https://i.imgur.com/UooGCWA.png

Okay because of hint 4 I now know what the game is, but ... I still don't see a game in that blurry abstract amalgamation of a screenshot If you tell me that's Mario Kart, I would believe you.

Yea that's on me... I have never played the series, but this "abstract amalgamation" is something I will always recognise because I saw it on printed screenshots in magazines back then... but that might very well have only been me, it's just a background object.
Answer rate is at 38% though, up from 25% before the hint. So I'm not completely alone!

November Quiz - Clues #2

Attention, the last days are dawning.... next Wednesday, the final round of 2022 will end! Just about fifty people are playing, including two from here. Join now, don't let your fellow forum users handle this one alone!

So then, once again hints - but after that you'll have to manage without my help:

1) Just ten games in this quiz use 3D graphics for the player characters.
2) In game 14, the characters can only fight with their legs, not their arms.
3) Five games from the 80s, nine from the 90s, five again from the 2000s.... plus three each from the 10s and 20s.
4) In this round you see SIX games that were released for the C64. All but one are in the bottom two rows.

Deadline is Wednesday the 30th of November, enter via http://www.retrogamequiz.com/.

Here's the quiz again - round 3, final: https://i.imgur.com/UooGCWA.png

November Quiz - round ends soon!

Woah, what a spectacle: almost eighty people are competing in this, it's a full on mass brawl! Also three players from here. But watch out: on Wednesday night the fight is over, so all the remaining observers don't have much time left. Come on people, get in the ring?

@Nobby & Havie: It's not impossible! You will know by the end of the week.

By the way, about #6... have you ever noticed that the same fighter appears as the protagonist in several fighting games on this platform? First in the original, then with a tan, then with a headband... that's why I'm friendly when it comes to the answers, but I won't just wave through every lowres Karate dude in a white bathrobe either!

See for yourself:

(these are all the answers that came in for #6)

But don't wait any longer, because the deadline is already tomorrow, Wednesday the 30th of November.
Participation as usual via http://www.retrogamequiz.com/.

Just one last time, the quiz:

#23 was by far the hardest entry, under 10% answer rate! So don't feel too bad.
