The Combatribes is the spiritual successor to Renegade. Its atypical combat engine lacks a jump button and emphasizes dashing for crowd control. It's the only brawler with the brutal "pavement kiss" attack. Its art style is defined by its vibrant urban setting and bobbleheaded characters.
Combatribes is the only brawler that lets you bang a grounded opponent's head against the pavement.
Combatribes was ported to the SNES, with certain features such as weapons, kicking grounded opponents, and tower part of stage 2 removed. However, it added story to the franchise, revealing that the Combatribes are cyborgs who fight against a criminal organization also headed by cyborgs.
Combatribes is a phenomenal follow-up to Renegade. It expands the movelist even further, adds a ton of personality, and has an unforgettable OST. Slamming grounded enemies' heads against the pavement is the most satisfying attack I've ever experienced, and only Combatribes has it. However, its challenge makes it inaccessible to all but hardcore players.
