The stage takes place in an unknown forest area, in front of a large golden statue of Buddha. The area is surrounded by a dense forest, with a large pagoda (presumably the "temple of fists" in the stage's name) visible in the distance. At the left side of the screen lies a small outdoors restaurant, while there's a lone tree and a smaller Buddhist statue on the right of the Buddha. Two deer in the background observe the battle taking place.In Marvel Super Heroes vs. Street Fighter, the stage received some notable changes. The palette was brightened a bit, setting the stage at early in the morning rather than at daylight. A second tree was added replacing the small Buddhist statue on the right, and it and several of the ones in the distance feature cherry blossoms. The pagoda in the background is now fully golden in color, and the outdoors restaurant appears closed. Finally, the deer appear resting instead of standing up.
