Added DiffLines:

* MainstreamObscurity: Has a cult following over the years, but is solely known for Morrigan Aensland, the [[SexGod sexier-than-sex]] [[HornyDevils succubus]] who has [[WolverinePublicity appeared in more crossover games than her own]]. Good luck finding someone who can name any other characters besides maybe Lilith, her {{moe}} sister or Felicia, a near-nude CatGirl. Possibly Hsien-Ko as well due to her appearance in ''VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom3''. They probably won't know anything about the gameplay either. The series is BestKnownForTheFanservice, and not much else.

** As well as [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v2xxrs8i2bM this song]] from ''Chronicle''. Quite somber.

** Demitri's a bit of an interesting case. Originally, he was the main protagonist of the series, but was later forgotten in favor of [[BreakoutCharcter Morrigan]]. Nowadays, however, he seems to be picking up a bit in popularity, mostly thanks to his [[MemeticMutation infamous]] [[GenderBender Midnight Bliss]] attack. Made it into ''Capcom Fighting Evolution'', ''Cross Edge'' (where [[spoiler:he's actually mocked at one point by his fellow Darkstalkers for losing his protagonist status]]), and ''Project X Zone'', where he's teamed with [[Franchise/DevilMayCry Dante]] of all people.

** Lord Raptor/Zabel Zarock: his rock star nature and hilarious, [[LargeHam hammy]] yet brutal quotes and fighting style have made him very popular amongst Western fans, many who want to see him in ''Marvel vs. Capcom 3'' as DLC. He made it into ''Namco × Capcom'' and ''Project X Zone'' as one of the villains.

** Demitri: Somewhat more popular in Japan than the West, but still notable for being one of the few truly badass vampires in the age of ''Literature/{{Twilight}}''. [[GenderBender Midnight Bliss]] helps.

* HarsherInHindsight: Several of the show's staff commented how they felt like this show was going to be the next best thing like ''Film/{{Ghostbusters}}''. The show proved very unpopular and didn't last [[ThirteenIsUnlucky 13 episodes]].

Added DiffLines:

* SeinfeldIsUnfunny: The Darkstalkers series often comes across as "just another 90s fighting game" to those who first experience it now, likely because so many of the new things it brought to the table such as [[{{Combos}} chain combos]], guard cancels, air blocking, ES specials, [[AwesomeArt improved]] [[DerangedAnimation animation]], and a cast full of something other than the same old martial arts archetypes have now been copied by so many other fighters (including its own predecessor, StreetFighter.)

* [[GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff Americans Love Jon Talbain]]: For many a year, fans have been clamoring to get this guy into one of the ''[[VideoGame/CapcomVsWhatever Vs.]]'' titles (it works for Americans, who view werewolves and Creator/BruceLee to be awesome things). Point in case: Ryota Niitsuma, the producer of ''Marvel vs. Capcom 3'', [[http://iplaywinner.com/news/2010/10/23/niitsuma-disconfirms-characters-for-mvc3-but-gives-some-hope.html notes that he wanted to add more characters from this series to the game, but couldn't due to time constraints.]] ''[[WhatCouldHaveBeen Jon would have been his pick.]]'' Unfortunately...
** [[AmericansHateTingle Japan Hates Gallon]]: Or, more accurately, Capcom Japan seems to, if their complete refusal to do ANYTHING with him is any indication. So they'll never pick up on all of the hints we've been giving them. [[YankTheDogsChain Sadly]], even despite Niitsuma's preference for him, Talbain STILL didn't make the cut for ''[[UpdatedRerelease Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3]]'' (aside from a skin for [[VideoGame/{{Okami}} Amaterasu]], which admittedly isn't much, but...)

* SnarkBait
* SoBadItsHorrible: Fans, critics, and even people who just watched the show for {{Narm}} humor all commented how this was the worst cartoon based off of a videogame to ever exist. ''Games Radar'' even stated that this cartoon was terrible as an adaptation ''and'' as a stand alone story. It's even said that it wasn't as entertaining as the [[{{Narm}} narmy]] ''WesternAnimation/StreetFighter'' or ''WesternAnimation/MortalKombatDefendersOfTheRealm''.

* DracoInLeatherPants: Lilith is very well liked despite being a villain in the series. Mostly because she has a sympathetic backstory.



** [[TheBadGuyWins Jedah's ending]]. The villain successfully massacres all life throughout the universe and his specially designed fetus awakens. We hear [[TheVoiceOfLegion a baby's cry]] as the [[TheFourthWallWillNotProtectYou fetus looks straight at the screen]].

** Queen Bee's ending involves her taking over the world with an army of insects.



* TooCoolToLive: [[spoiler: Victor]] ends up KilledOffForReal after performing a HeroicSacrifice.



* UnintentionallySympathetic: Lilith gained a lot of fans who felt sorry for her, despite being TheDragon to Jedah.
* UnintentionallyUnsympathetic: Dimitri is not exactly the most sympathetic character, but he was originally meant to be one of the ''heroes''.



** Lilith. Just take a look at her backstory. Played straight in her ending (Morrigan's ending, despite Lilith losing, offers a more satisfactory conclusion [[spoiler:as Morrigan welcomes Lilith back into her body, resulting in a win-win situation for both of them: Morrigan's power gets exponentially multiplied (possibly reaching full level), and Lilith's sense of existence is assured]]).
