I'm going to be somewhat childish and stump for Blazing Knuckle 3
, with its inclusion of one of the most hilariously stereotyped character designs I've ever seen. If you don't like Ash, then you're a po-faced misery guts!
And to claw back some respectability: there are secret characters to unlock, characters can run, and Axel isn't ridiculously overpowered in this one. I found the way weapons could be used to be particularly neat. Having said that, after being spoiled by SoR2
's fantastic presentation BK3
is definitely something of a backwards step. Where have the nice, chunky sprites gone? And the music is fairly bland. Shame!

SOR3 is utter gashpap of the highest order
What he said. The US and European versions of the third in the series are shockingly poor, and seem to have difficulty settings appropiate only for superhuman gamers!
