If we're counting one-on-one beat-'em-ups:

Streetfighter II, Alpha and Third Strike
Streets of Rage
Bloody Roar (for the turning into animals gimmick)
Double Dragon
Altered Beast

Streets of Rage is probably my favourite.

Two games escaped my brain last time:

King of the Monsters (SNES) - scrolling beat-them-up with an unusual setting: you get to control a giant hero similar to Godzilla, Ultraman etc. and get to trash proportionally small cities and fight crazy monster bosses

Super Punch-Out (SNES) - defeat Bruce Lee in a boxing ring
