Capcom vs. SNK: Millennium Fight 2000 (カプコン バーサス エス・エヌ・ケイ ミレニアムファイト 2000) is a head-to-head fighting game produced by Capcom. It was originally released as a coin-operated arcade game for Sega NAOMI arcade hardware in 2000, before being ported to the Sega Dreamcast later in the year. It is a fighting game crossover involving characters owned by Capcom and rival fighting game developer SNK, with an emphasis on their two flagship fighting game franchises, Street Fighter and The King of Fighters respectively.

Capcom vs. SNK: Millennium Fight 2000 Pro is an update to this game. It would later be followed by Capcom vs. SNK 2: Millionaire Fighting 2001.


In 2000, a special martial arts event is planned through a collaboration of the two most powerful world organizations: Garcia Financial Clique and Masters Foundation. The gala event – it is hoped by everyone – will ease the political conflicts between the two powers. The competition was named "Millennium Fight 2000".

Many renowned martial artists have registered for the tournament. People around the world focus intensely on the upcoming exhibitions, making long-awaited opening ceremony a huge success.


Capcom vs. SNK utilizes a "ratio" system, ranging from 1 to 4, which defines a character's overall strength. Teams of up to four can be assembled, but their combined ratios must equal and go no higher than 4.

The gameplay uses the SNK-style four-button format, although the player is also able to choose between two "grooves" which define how the attack meter will function. The SNK groove is based on Extra mode from The King of Fighters '94 to The King of Fighters '98, while Capcom groove is based on the gameplay system from Street Fighter Alpha.

  • In the options menu, in the middle of a song a voice can be heard saying in Portuguese: "Kaiser, uma grande cerveja. A cerveja dos momentos felizes." which translates "Kaiser, a great beer. The beer of the happy moments." Kaiser is a beer manufacturer in Brazil and this audio track was a rip from commercial insertion on Jovem Pan FM radio. The rip was claimed by and released on Napster in late 1999.
