Virtua Fighter Kids (バーチャファイター キッズ) is a spin-off of the Virtua Fighter series. It features a cast of super deformed Virtua Fighter 2 characters and was released for Sega Titan Video arcade hardware in 1996 before being ported to the Sega Saturn.

In Japan, the original version of the game was titled Java Tea Original Virtua Fighter Kids (ジャワティオリジナル バーチャファイターキッズ), and featured advertisements for Java Tea. These were removed in later versions of the game and international releases.

The Kids versions of Akira Yuki and Sarah Bryant are unlockable characters within Fighters Megamix.
