** ''VideoGame/{{Tekken}} 7'' (Akuma was included in the home release as a GuestFighter. Geese Howard from ''VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters'' was later brought in through DLC, indirectly reviving the Capcom and SNK rivalry.)

Well, kind of. A few days before the American release of ''Tatsunoko vs. Capcom: Ultimate All-Stars'', Capcom teased at a new title for the {{Xbox 360}} to be revealed on the release date of said game, [[http://kotaku.com/5454429/capcom-announcing-title-for-xbox-japan with the teaser banner]] "Capcom x Microsoft." The game turned out to be a 360 port of ''VideoGame/MonsterHunter Frontier'', thus irrelevant to this page...

* CostumeEvolution: Certain characters change outfits as the series progresses, most notably Iron Man, Hawkeye, Wolverine and Storm. The Hulk's The Professor/Merged Hulk incarnation was also used in the earlier games, before reverting to the more iconic Savage Hulk persona from ''3'' onward.

** The Capcom-produced installments of ''VideoGame/SNKVsCapcom'' fared better in this regard. All the SNK fighters had to be redrawn in the more anime-inspired Capcom style, in addition to Capcom characters who'd never appeared in 2D fighting games, such as [[VideoGame/RivalSchools Kyosuke]] and [[VideoGame/FinalFight Maki]]. Capcom also went a step further and did brand new sprites for characters returning like Ryu, Chun-Li, Akuma, M. Bison, Dan and Yun, which served to make the blatant recycling of sprites from the early-to-mid '90s games look ''even more'' blatant by comparison.

** The ''VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom''series: Most of the sprites came from ''VideoGame/StreetFighterAlpha'', ''VideoGame/{{DarkStalkers}}'', ''VideoGame/XMenChildrenOfTheAtom'' and ''VideoGame/MarvelSuperHeroes''. The characters who got new sprites were generally ones who hadn't appeared in any prior 2D fighting games, such as Comicbook/{{Rogue}} and Comicbook/{{Gambit}} in ''VideoGame/XMenVsStreetFighter'', VideoGame/MegaMan and VideoGame/CaptainCommando in ''VideoGame/{{Marvel Vs Capcom|Clash Of Super Heroes}}'', and [[VideoGame/ResidentEvil Jill]], Comicbook/{{Cable}}, [[VideoGame/StarGladiator Hayato]] and the OriginalGeneration characters in ''[[VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom2 Marvel vs. Capcom 2]]''.

* VideoGame/NewWorkRecycledGraphics: A hallmark of the pre-3D installments. This began to become an issue as time went on and the arcade hardware and home consoles running the games started to get more and more sophisticated. Examples include:

** This goes all the way back to ''VideoGame/XMenChildrenOfTheAtom'', the unofficial start of the ''Capcom Vs Whatever'' franchise. Akuma just reuses his more realistic-looking ''VideoGame/StreetFighterII Turbo'' sprite, which clashes badly with the anime-style sprites used by the X-Men characters.

* ''VideoGame/StreetFighterOnlineMouseGeneration''



Yes, this actually happened. In 2008 Capcom made a [[NoExportForYou Japan-only]] PC game called Street Fighter Online: Mouse Generation, which sadly got discontinued in 2009. Among the regular Street Fighter fare, it also featured characters from VideoGame/RivalSchools, Manga/{{Cyborg 009}}, and several Louis Cha novels, as well as [[Franchise/MetalHeroes Gavan]] and [[Manga/DetroitMetalCity Johannes Krauser II]].

* OddballInTheSeries: ''VideoGame/ProfessorLaytonVSAceAttorney'', aside from being a crossover between [[Franchise/AceAttorney a Capcom franchise]] and [[Franchise/ProfessorLayton a series from another company]], has absolutely nothing in common with the other games listed here.

* SpotlightStealingCrossover: In almost all Capcom Vs games expect Street Fighter to be the most prominently featured series. In the Marvel Vs games there will always be more X-Men then any other hero group.Though it was toned down in Marvel vs Capcom 3.

* SpotlightStealingCrossover: In almost all ''X-Men'' and ''Street Fighter'' characters usually tend to dominate the cast, with ''Marvel vs. Capcom Vs games expect Street Fighter to be 2'' being especially infamous in this regard (with over half the most prominently featured series. In the Marvel Vs games there will always be roster being more X-Men then any other hero group.Though it was toned down in Marvel vs ''Street Fighter'' and ''X-Men'' than anything else), though ''Marvel vs. Capcom 3.3'' and its ''Ultimate'' update toned things down a bit (only four ''Street Fighter'' characters, and while there were still a considerable amount of ''X-Men'', there were plenty of other characters as well).
