* CashCowFranchise: Capcom has two of them: ''Franchise/StreetFighter'' and ''Franchise/ResidentEvil''. ''VideoGame/MonsterHunter'' too has established itself as a huge moneymaker, although this is mostly limited to Japan. In the past, ''Franchise/MegaMan'' used to be this, but in recent years, a steady decline in sales for this series made Capcom cancel several of its entries and put it on the backburner.
* CreatorBacklash: Many people that have been fired, have at one point collaborated or quit from the studio, like Creator/PlatinumGames (formerly Capcom's Clover Studios), Creator/{{Suda 51}}, and Creator/KeijiInafune have come to despise a lot of Capcom's policies. A lot of them were especially upset when ''VideoGame/MegaManLegends 3'' was canceled, to the point where Creator/CyberConnect2 wants to take over said project.
** [[AvertedTrope Averted]] however, with Creator/PlatinumGames founder Creator/HidekiKamiya, who despite issues with Capcom back when he was there, has gone on record saying that he would love the opportunity to work with Capcom again, with him considering it his old home and having a lot of respect for the company.
* CreatorKiller: Python Anghelo's rumored ''Zingy Bingy'' project (which never made it past the prototype stage) was this for Capcom's pinball division. According to Creator/MarkRitchie, and composer Bryan Hansen, ''Zingy Bingy'' was a pornographic-themed pinball game.

*** [[TheBusCameBack Making his return]] since ''[[VideoGame/StreetFighterAlpha Street Fighter Alpha 2]]'', Guy's master Zeku appears in ''Street Fighter V''. He is an elderly ninja that can [[DualAgeModes shift his age at will]]. In his younger form, his garb resembles that of [[VideoGame/{{Strider}} Strider Hiryu]]. This is because Zeku is the founder of the Strider organization. The ''Strider'' games take place in the distant future.
