** Double might even be an intentional use of this; her intro animation starts with a shapely maid, shortly before she splits in half and turns into a giant flesh monster not unlike ''Film/TheThing''.

** Also one for GuiltyGear and Franchise/BlazBlue, though with the addition of 'Capcom Vs'-style team mechanics.

** Not even the voting for the two DLC characters is immune. When Round 2's survivors were announced, many fans cried FanDumb due to hopefuls like Marie, Umbrella, and Scythana being out-voted by Minette. Beowulf winning the second contest was met with revulsion, claiming he had the least interesting design of all the males and didn't make it to the top 4 in the first contest.Many fans are not happy at Big Band taking Umbrella's second DLC character spot, especially as she lost in the fan voting soon after. What probably caused the most resentment was Alex Ahad's explanation that it would be impossible to add True Story Mode until Marie, Umbrella, and Black Dahlia were playable characters. You can imagine the rage that erupted when ''none'' of them won.

* SpiritualLicensee: One of the few modern games considered to be a worthy successor to ''VideoGame/{{Darkstalkers}}''. It was also considered the closest there was to a fourth ''Marvel vs. Capcom'' installment until the ''actual'' [[VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcomInfinite fourth installment]] was announced (and, in fact, is the most popular ''MarvelVsCapcom'' {{expy}} [[GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff in Japan]]).

** While the game touts an infinite prevention system (to, you know, prevent [[GameBreaker infinites]]), the game's combo system is free and open enough to allow skilled players to knock out other characters in a single, nonrepetitive combo. The core competitive players love this, the rest not so much.
*** As of the later patches and Encore, this is no longer the case due to the addition of the Drama mechanic.
** The same applies to Mike Z's conservative approach to balance patches. Mike believes that you cannot make changes off a limited amount of play and prefers to let the game grow before he and the team make any balance changes. This obviously appeals to older fans and fighting game veterans who are used to seeing most early [[GameBreaker Game Breakers]] eventually find counters. However, newer players, especially those new to the genre in general, are not so happy with this.
** Some of the same newer players are also somewhat put off by the influences from ''VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom2'', specifically on the utility of the assists.

** Lab Zero being forced to change the default palette of Valentine amongst other smaller examples to avoid any possible copyright issues issues with Red Cross for the Japanese PSN release has been met with hatred. Most of it stemming from the red crosses on her being changed to a shade of purplish-pink to avoid any red crosses on white backgrounds.
** Eliza's blood mechanic - her ''main draw as a character'' - was confirmed dropped due to technical issues. As to be expected, many fans aren't looking forward to her very much anymore.
*** This has faded with time as Eliza now has a few bodyguards and a skeleton stance to keep her character unique.
** Beowulf's story mode milks Annie for all she's worth, and consequently loses Beowulf screen time ''in his own story'', obviously upsetting many Beowulf fans who do not care about Annie.

* DudeNotFunny: Averted in two instances.
** Peacock's bomb assists are now known as [[Literature/OfMiceAndMen Lenny and George]]; the dev team decided that it wasn't worth the risk of trying to sell the game in Japan with those characters' original names intact -- 'Fat Man and Little Boy'', the codenames for the nukes dropped on Japan in World War II.
** Filia's [[WhatCouldHaveBeen original]] time-out animation showed [[http://skullgirls.wikia.com/wiki/File:Filia_unusedtimeoutanim.gif Samson ripping her shirt open, exposing her breasts while Filia barely covers herself up]]. Like all the other time-out animations, [[BlackComedyRape this was]] PlayedForLaughs. It ended up unused due to objections from the dev team, this trope being the reason.

* BestKnownForTheFanservice: The game has a rather cool art style, a good story for a fighter, some interesting characters with personalities that shows they actually have more depth to them then just their looks, and is an overall fun and solid tournament fighter. Unfortunately, many people who haven't played the game for more than 10 minutes, if at all, often [[AudienceAlienatingPremise get stuck on]] what they perceive as blatant fanservice. Though [[FanDisservice this diminishes]] [[ComeForTheXStayForTheY really fast]].
