Dark Edge (ダークエッジ) is a 1993 fighting game by Sega for the Sega System 32.

It uses sprite scaling to simulate a 3D playfield, meaning it predates Virtua Fighter as a 3D fighter by about a year (though the 3D in Virtua Fighter isn't simulated, but rather true rendered 3D graphics). You can play as either warriors or monsters, but otherwise this is a typical fighting game with a dedicated jump button (as Up moves back). Although the title screen reads "1992", the arcade game was first sold in early 1993.

While the game was not ported to home consoles, developer Sega AM3 received a lot of fan mail requests for it to ported to the Sega Saturn. In 1995, AM3 manager Hisao Oguchi said he was "considering it".[2] It was officially released for the first time outside arcades on the Astro City Mini.
