The King of Fighters '98: The Slugfest (known as 'The King of Fighters '98: Dream Match Never Ends in the Japanese version) is the fifth game in The King of Fighters series. The game was released for the Neo-Geo and later ported to the Sony PlayStation and Sega Dreamcast. The Dreamcast port of the game was titled The King of Fighters: Dream Match 1999. A remake titled The King of Fighters '98 Ultimate Match was released in Japanese arcades on March 18, 2008 and later on the PlayStation 2. The original game was then released on the iOS on July 25, 2014.

In terms of plot, the game does not have a story and was developed as a "dream match" for characters from all previous King of Fighters games, including killed-off characters. The series' canon storyline would resume in The King of Fighters '99.
