Despite this, Capcom hasn't really "forgotten" about it: ''Darkstalkers'' has gotten representation in crossover games such as ''VideoGame/ProjectXZone 2'' (which features Morrigan and Demitri as a pair unit, and Felicia as a solo unit) and the ''VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom'' series (in which Morrigan is a playable character). Yoshinori Ono is [[https://www.destructoid.com/there-s-still-hope-for-a-new-darkstalkers-347008.phtml still very adamant about reviving the series]], and a ray of hope has spawned from a recent [[http://www.capcom.co.jp/ir/english/news/html/e161205b.html press release]] from Capcom stating that, after the release of ''VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcomInfinite'', they'll be interested in potentially reviving some of their dormant [=IPs=].

Despite ''Darkstalkers'' being one of their most underrated and underutilized [=IPs=], it's notable that Capcom still hasn't really "forgotten" about it, since it otherwise wouldn't keep getting representation in crossover games such as ''VideoGame/ProjectXZone 2'' (which features Morrigan and Demitri as a pair unit, and Felicia as a solo unit) and ''VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcomInfinite'' (in which Morrigan is a playable character).

* FinishingMove: Some attacks leave the opponent mutilated if they're used to deplete their last health bar. Finishing every opponent with such an attack in ''Vampire Savior'' is one of the prerequisites to fight [[BonusBoss Oboro Bishamon.]]

Added DiffLines:

* PolygonCeiling: The reason why most of the characters haven't shown up in 3D games. While some of them have been able to make the jump to 3D models just fine (Morrigan has shown up in ''VideoGame/TatsunokoVsCapcom'', ''VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom3'', and ''VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcomInfinite'', with ''Marvel vs. Capcom 3'' in particular also featuring Felicia and Hsien-Ko), many of the characters such as Lord Raptor (whose attacks include chainsaws sticking out of his feet and turning opponents into basketballs), Demitri Maximoff (whose Midnight Bliss would necessitate making different models for every character, which would be out of the question unless they went with a generic model a la Anakaris' Royal Curse in ''VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom2''), and Jedah (whose attacks involve tearing himself apart and bleeding heavily, which would be both difficult to animate ''and'' possibly require some {{Bowdlerization}} depending on the game) would be difficult to animate in 3D, let alone animate and make it look good.

* LighterAndSofter: Demitri and Morriganís interaction in most of their crossover and guest appearances has been brought down to a much lighter note than originally portrayed in their home series; Demitri wants Morrigan to be his mistress, he hasnít been shown to be really in love with her, he admires her beauty and strength but all Demitri wants to have is the Aensland household under his thumb, getting Morrigan with it is just an welcome bonus to his harem; Morrigan on the other hand is a free spirit and isnít particularly interested in Demitri nor does she want to become a submissive mistress, to the point she would rather let herself turn into stone than become Demitriís mistress in his ending for Vampire Savior. Come their later appearances and in some of them Demitri and Morrigan seem quite close, with Morrigan teasing Demitri and calling him by nicknames and the guy actually getting embarrassed, being composed in her presence, not wanting to make her his plaything.
