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 (where Morrigan has usually been a playable character since ''[[VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcomClashOfSuperHeroes Clash of Super Heroes]]'', and various others such as Felicia, Anakaris, Hsien-Ko and Jedah joining in the [[VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom2 second]],[[VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom3 third]] and [[VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcomInfinite fourth]] games). 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=].

Added DiffLines:

* InformedAbility: Officially, Darkstalkers are capable of easily destroying even small armies of humans in an instant. This would hold up just fine if B.B. Hood didn't exist, as she is a normal human who fights with perfectly mundane guns and explosives (ie: the things an army would use), but can keep pace with the rest of the cast, both in gameplay and in story. If anything, she should be ''easier'' for a Darkstalker to kill than an army, as she is only one person, and not a group. So the idea that Darkstalkers could easily wipe out armies without fail is firmly this trope.

* DoubleStandard: Somewhat. Demitri's power of turning males into [[AttractiveBentGender females]] does not go the other way around for the females. They just change into cuter or sexier woman. This makes sense in character, though.

* AfterlifeExpress: ''Darkstalkers 3'' featured a playable stage called Iron Horse, Iron Terror, which not only has numerous body parts but is also driven by a skeletal engineer.
* AllThereInTheManual: Like ''Street Fighter'', ''Darkstalkers'' has a surprising amount of depth and background stories for a fighting game.

* 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.
