Like Jump Ultimate Stars or J-Stars Victory VS, Dengeki Bunko Fighting Climax is a mega-crossover fighting game filled with famous characters from many popular Japanese anime.

In fact, Fighting Climax sports a total of 37 characters (14 playable, 23 assist) from across 21 different series. But what characters you may ask?
