Vs. Balloon Fight is one of a series of coin-operated video game platforms designed for two-player competitive play. It is the first game in the Balloon Fight series. The machines were popular in the late 1980s, where they could cheaply be installed to VS. UniSystem or VS. DualSystem arcade system boards. Other Nintendo Vs. Systems included titles such as Vs. Super Mario Bros and Vs. Ice Climber.

The machines were introduced in 1984, before Japan's official release of Balloon Fight for the Famicom in 1985.
