* Ryan "Filipino Champ" Ramirez: An up-and-coming player who is infamous for being quite polarizing within the community. While his skill is commendable, his attitude is sometimes viewed as uncouth, to put it lightly. In addition, his character choices have also come under criticism, as he is also infamous for playing Dhalsim and Phoenix, who are already well-established as being extremely annoying and difficult to deal with. Ironically, he is also given flak for sticking with characters that do poorly in certain match-ups, most notably against [=ChrisG=]. Sponsored by Panda Global, and the head of the FGTV crew.

* Naoki "Nemo" Nemoto: Japanese player who made a name for himself in 2013 as one of the few players from that country to play ''Marvel vs. Capcom 3'' on a serious level, traveling to the United States to participate in tournaments and (more famously) defeat a number of top ''Marvel'' players in money matches, including [=ChrisG=], Filipino Champ and Fanatiq, among others. His success (particularly in the aforementioned money matches) has led to a number of American players to imitate his team of ComicBook/{{Nova}}, ComicBook/DoctorStrange and [[VideoGame/BionicCommando Spencer]]. In late 2014, he decided to shift his focus from Marvel to Ultra StreetFighterIV, showing off what [[VideoGame/FinalFight Rolento]] is capable of. Currently sponsored by Alienware Japan.
