** After the success of their ''Street Fighter'' toys, SOTA announced plans to produce a ''Darkstalkers'' action figure line. Prototypes for figures of Morrigan, Lillith, Demitri, Anakaris, Donovan, Lord Raptor and Jedah were produced, but the line never officially made it into production.

* UnCanceled: Yoshinori Ono of ''VideoGame/StreetFighterIV'' fame is pushing to invoke this with the series. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q_skngJlTDg A teaser trailer was released affirming the possibility of it happening]], but he said it will only be greenlit as long as enough fan demand gets through to the higher-ups. This is part of the reason ''Darkstalkers Ressurrection'' was announced, though that only resulted in extremely poor sales and the teaser was never followed up on. As of [[https://www.destructoid.com/there-s-still-hope-for-a-new-darkstalkers-347008.phtml March 2016]], Ono is ''still'' trying to invoke this, and at the very least, [[http://www.capcom.co.jp/ir/english/news/html/e161205b.html Capcom has shown some interest in reviving their forgotten franchises]], bringing some hope for this series.

* FranchiseKiller: The hastily-released [[NoExportForYou Japan-only]] arcade [[UpdatedRerelease updates]] ''Vampire Savior 2'' and ''Vampire Hunter 2'' are widely regarded as having heavily damaged public interest in the series. On top of being [[CapcomSequelStagnation slightly modified versions]] of ''Vampire Savior'' (and said modifications being largely disliked), [[OneGameForThePriceOfTwo the roster was split between two separate games due to hardware limitations]], and the ''Vampire Hunter 2'' [[NeverTrustATitle title was misleading]] due to the original ''Vampire Hunter'' being a fairly different game gameplay-wise. Even the fact that three previously dropped characters were brought back into the mix wasn't enough to counter all the negatives, and series' remaining fans quickly abandoned these versions in favor of previous entries. Every ''Darkstalkers'' release since has been some kind of port of the existing entries in the series.
** ''Darkstalkers Resurrection'', a decently-featured but still overpriced port of Vampire Hunter and Vampire Savior. [[BoxOfficeBomb It failed to meet its projected sales.]] Unfortunately, Capcom took that as a sign that interest in the franchise was overestimated, and as a result decided against making a new ''Darkstalkers'' game.

* DivorcedIntallment: The original game was supposed to be a licensed Franchise/UniversalHorror fighting game, much like how ''VideoGame/StarGladiator'' was going to be a licensed ''Franchise/StarWars'' fighting game.

** The original game was supposed to be a licensed fighting game starring monsters from the Franchise/UniversalHorror franchise, but the deal fell through. The game's original premise can still be glimpsed in certain characters who were obviously modeled after Universal monsters (Demitri = Film/{{Dracula|1931}}, Jon Talbain = Film/{{The Wolfman|1941}}, Victor von Gerdenheim = [[Film/{{Frankenstein 1931}} Frankenstein's Monster]], Rikuo = [[Film/CreatureFromTheBlackLagoon The Creature from the Black Lagoon]], and so on).

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: There were plans for a fourth title in development for the CPS-III system. It is said that Vampire Ace (or Vampire Soldier as it's been called in some places) would have had the core gameplay of Vampire Savior with CPS-III fluid characters. The reasons for the cancellation are unknown.
