** I like to think that in-universe, she's essentially an even more unhinged {{Franchise/Batman}}, and while they can't show it in the context of a 1-on-1 fighting game, she comes into the fight having already prepared the area to her advantage, and every weapon is customized to attack the weakness of her current for, and she doesn't just stand there, but use cover, misdirection, and otherwise fight a one-woman guerilla war against far more powerful foes.

* Why does Marvel vs Capcom 3 even bother having Morrigan speak with a Scottish accent if she was raised in the Makai from infancy and thus shouldn't have it, has never been portrayed with an accent until this game {and don't be a smartass and say "She had a Japanese accent before!" because Yayoi Jinguji only spoke the lines in Japanese}, and her actress doesn't even hold it for half her lines anyway?

Morrigan herself is named for a Celtic war goddess, and Scotland is her earthly dwelling of choice, and has been listed as such since her debut, so it stands to reason that if she communicates in the earth-realm, she would do so in the accent of her locale. What accent should they give her? Generic "American" would make even less sense.

* Does ''Darkstalkers'' take place in the same universe as ''StreetFighter'' and ''FinalFight''?

** Darkness Illusion is a combo where she does attacks automatically, while Astral Vision keeps her under player control. You could say, then, that she casts Astral Vision as a part of Darkness Illusion.

* What's the difference, if any, between Morrigan's [[DoppelgangerAttack Astral Vision and DarknessIllusion]] attacks? Both create Dopplegangers, and one is probably stronger from an in-game perspective, but beyond that, in universe, is there any functional advantage to using one over the other?

*** Perhaps the "darkness in her heart" does the real work and the bullets are just superfluous? That doesn't explained why she should fast enough to catch or avoid anything from Pryon, who casually travels between galaxies or bother the robot Huitzil or...you know what? GamePlayAndStorySegregation. The same reason character who hover above the ground can slip on a dropped banana peel. The same reason Donovan bothers with fighting at all instead of letting his flying sword and summons do all the work.

The most numerous are the D class, who are roughly human in ability and while the C and B types would be harder to defeat, it would be theoretically possible. Add some game play and story segregation and there you go.

** It varies based on the game. In darkstalkers he becomes a damsel in distress looking woman, while in CFE he becomes a young sorcereress looking girl with bats flying around her I think. In SVC, I think he becomes a spiky haired woman.

** Morrigan having an "Scotirish" accent is not without precedent, the terrible American cartoon and some of the dubs of the anime have used it too. Presumably turning her name [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Morrigan into a reference]].

*** Can you really call people writing a ''succubus'' as being sex-driven taking something to the level of "memetic molester", though? I mean if anything, adding a more sexual component to her behavior is more just sensible than anything else, considering that Capcom seems to have taken "succubus" to mean "sexy female demon that really really enjoyed '''fighting'''".

** Hmm aren't there normally TWO grandmas? ^^ Isn't it possible that one of them got killed and now she is doting on the other?
