* UnexpectedCharacter: While ''VideoGame/RedEarth'' is incredibly obscure, the game's heroine, Tessa, appeared in ''VideoGame/SuperGemFighter'' and ''VideoGame/SNKVsCapcomSVCChaos''. For whatever reason, she didn't make the cut in Evolution.
** [[VideoGame/StreetFighterII Ken]] is one of Capcom's most popular characters, one of only two (along with Ryu) to appear in every mainline installment of the series but doesn't show up in Evolution.
** [[VideoGame/{{Darkstalkers}} Morrigan]] is well-known from her extensive appearances in [[VideoGame/CapcomVsWhatever crossover]] games, but Capcom opted for different representatives from ''VideoGame/{{Darkstalkers}}''.

''Capcom Fighting Evolution'' (a.k.a. ''Capcom Fighting Jam'' in Japan and Europe), released in 2004, is a MassivelyMultiplayerCrossover between some of Creator/{{Capcom}}'s popular fighting game series, including ''VideoGame/StreetFighterII'', ''VideoGame/StreetFighterIII'', ''VideoGame/StreetFighterAlpha'' and ''VideoGame/{{Darkstalkers}}''. Of special note is that this game represents the second chance North American players have had to play as characters from the arcade-only ''VideoGame/RedEarth'' (Tessa the Witch was playable in ''VideoGame/SuperGemFighter'').

''Evolution'' is a standard one-on-one fighting game with a semi-tag function allowing players to change their current character after a round, with four characters each from their respective games, along with [[OriginalGeneration newcomer]] Ingrid (who was to appear in a 3D fighting game called ''Capcom Fighting All-Stars'', which was eventually cancelled) and FinalBoss Pyron from ''VideoGame/{{Darkstalkers}}''. All characters fight using the rules from the games they came from - the ''VideoGame/StreetFighterII'' characters use the single [[LimitBreak Super Move]] meter from ''Super Street Fighter II'', the ''VideoGame/{{Darkstalkers}}'' characters have the stacking Super Move meters, etc. Like most Capcom crossover games, there is no overarching storyline (although each character does have their own ending cutscene) - fight several opponents, then the final boss, and then watch the end credits.

In 2002, Capcom began development on ''Capcom Fighting All-Stars.'' All-Stars was a 3D fighting crossover that featured characters from games like ''VideoGame/StreetFighterII'', ''VideoGame/{{Darkstalkers}}'', ''VideoGame/{{Final Fight}}'', ''VideoGame/{{Rival Schools}}'' and several [[OriginalGeneration new characters]]. In 2003, the game received limited beta tests in London and Japan. Unfortunately, it crashed right into the PolygonCeiling, and the game was canceled that year.

However, Capcom decided to do what they could to salvage the remains of All-Stars, and released
''Capcom Fighting Evolution'' (a.k.a. ''Capcom Fighting Jam'' in Japan and Europe), released in 2004, 2004. It is a MassivelyMultiplayerCrossover between some of Creator/{{Capcom}}'s popular fighting game series, including ''VideoGame/StreetFighterII'', ''VideoGame/StreetFighterIII'', ''VideoGame/StreetFighterAlpha'' and ''VideoGame/{{Darkstalkers}}''. Of special note is that this game represents ''VideoGame/{{Darkstalkers}}'', and the second chance North American players have had to play as characters from the obscure, arcade-only ''VideoGame/RedEarth'' (Tessa ''VideoGame/RedEarth''.

Unlike All-Stars, Evolution is completely 2D. It dropped most of All-Stars' original characters, with
the Witch was playable in ''VideoGame/SuperGemFighter'').

''Evolution'' is
lone exception of a standard one-on-one fighting mysterious schoolgirl named Ingrid. Each franchise gets four characters, with Pyron from ''VideoGame/{{Darkstalkers}}'' serving as the final boss. The game with operates on a semi-tag function allowing system while players to can't swap in and out during a battle, they can change to their current alternate character after a round, with four characters each from their respective games, along with [[OriginalGeneration newcomer]] Ingrid (who was to appear in a 3D fighting game called ''Capcom Fighting All-Stars'', which was eventually cancelled) and FinalBoss Pyron from ''VideoGame/{{Darkstalkers}}''. round.

** The game suffers from the same problem as ''[[VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom2 Marvel vs. Capcom 2]]'' and ''[[VideoGame/CapcomVsSNK2MarkOfTheMillennium Capcom vs. SNK 2]]'', in that the use of more recent and higher quality sprites for certain characters (such as Ryu and M. Bison's redone sprites from ''VideoGame/{{Capcom Vs SNK|Millennium Fight 2000}}'') makes the older ones from the mid-nineties look even more jarring by comparison.
