*** [[WildMassGuessing It can be argued]] that Capcom themselve supports ButtonMashing. At least one of the SegaSaturn ports of the vs. games (been a while since I've played, I forget which one(s) in particular) have an "Easy Mode" where you can enter special moves by simply hammering the buttons rapidly (no controller motions required).

** Also, easier controls for performing special moves can sometimes come with losing other moves: [[MarvelVsCapcom3 Marvel vs. Capcom 3]] is an obvious example. In order to give space it assigns all of the "normal" moves you can typically access at will to a single-button auto-chain, meaning that you effectively lose the other moves unless you chain into them. Essentially, with limited buttons and a whole bunch of moves, some of them naturally have to be relegated to alternate motions.

* Who's [[SarcasmMode bright]] idea was it to put in more Darkstalkers characters in VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom3 than Mega Man characters? I mean...what? The worse is that instead of trying to put in somebody other than VideoGame/MegaMan Classic...they just left him out. Likewise, why Hsien-Ko out of the other Darkstalkers? Morrigan is the main character. Felicia is the main hero in the Cartoon series. Hsien-Ko...is just a demon hunter. Note that VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom2 had loads of characters, so including some from other series wasn't a problem, but she just...doesn't have a reason to be there except for a very odd kind of fanservice.(she's undead, folks)

** {{Boss fight}}s are fun [[SNKBoss (we hope)]]. [[TheUnexpected Unexpected cameos]] are fun. Those two elements are more important to these crossovers than compelling plotlines.

*** Hsien-Ko brings more than just "fanservice", she brings more variety with her unique moveset than Megaman would. Plus, I highly doubt that being the heroine of the cartoon would justify putting Felicia in the game, seeing how both Capcom and Darkstalkers fans pretend that it doesn't exist (unless to make fun of its cheesiness), and the fact that Hsien-ko was a main character/deuteroganist in the far more well-received anime. The reason Felicia made it in was because of her popularity as a character, and the same reason applies to Hsien-Ko, as though it may not be big as Mega Man's, she does have a fanbase who wanted her to return to a game for quite some time. Though to be honest, even I'm surprised that she made it over Megaman.
*** Headscratchers is definitely not for discussing that kind of things, but I'll give my opinion on that. First, smaller roster compared to ''[=MvC2=]'', for the sake of the balance which previously was broken to the memetic extent. Second, the quantity of the Megaman installments compared to the Darkstalkers' (might be the reason why Jin is in [=MvC1&2=], even though the series are more popular in USA and Cyberbots were not quite a hit game there): Megaman got like three or four universes, each having about ten parts (and that's ''not'' ciunting spinoffs); Darkstalkers limited itself with three parts, extended only with updates. Third, Hsien Ko and Felicia also have a considerably big fanbase and weren't showing up as actually playable characters for a long, long time.
