Fighting games that have one round, but multiple health bars for each character?

So yeah recently, I've been playing some DBZ: Budokai and watching some Injustice: Gods Among Us videos and looking at the gameplay of those make me wonder, what other games have the "one round, multiple health bars each" method?

As DBZ and Injustice are my only examples, here's what I mean:

In DBZ: Budokai (I think this is in it's sequels as well), every character has up to three health bars, going from being colored green, to orange, then red before that character loses, while in Injustice, there were two going from a white-ish gray to red.

Are there any other fighters long before any of these that use something similar? Just curious and those are the only ones I can think of that do.

Marvel vs Capcom, although that might have rounds. You could probably set it to 1 round though.

All of those spawned from Samurai Shodown and Last Blade. Those are the originators of multi-health bar single round fighting games.

Okay thanks. Every time I think of that system, the earliest I can think of is DBZ: Budokai, as I wasn't too heavily invested at fighters at the time.

Darkstalkers and Naruto games as well.
