* AudienceAlienatingPremise: The general idea of combining ''Tekken'' and ''Street Fighter'' in one game raised an immediate eyebrow from fans of both, because it was ''extremely'' unlikely that either Capcom or Namco would be able to faithfully combine the two vastly-different mechanics. This game, naturally, leaned more heavily toward SF mechanics, which meant that ardent fans of ''Tekken's'' saw no reason to buy outside of brand loyalty. Further, the fact that the SF character models and game engine were recycled from ''Videogame/StreetFighterIV'' meant that people who disliked that game and its engine immediately knew to give this one a pass, and even those who liked it had grown a little fatigued with it by that point. And last, but certainly, not least, we have Gems, which the developers flat out ''admitted'' were introduced as an attempt to bring a ''TabletopGame/MagicTheGathering'' style of fun to fighting games. Except, tabletop gamers aren't typically fond of the execution ceiling of fighting games, and fighting game players don't particularly like the unpredictability and "pay-to-play" requirements of tabletop games, leaving just about ''everyone'' confused as to who this game was for.

* DesignatedHero: Kazuya is the character most seen representing Tekken in official promos, and stands up against [[TheHero Ryu]] as his rival. However, Kazuya's motives for Pandora and battle quotes are ObviouslyEvil. Not helped by the fact that he hasn't been in a heroic light since the first Tekken game, [[BaittheDog and even then it was a hoax]].
** DesignatedVillain: Jin serves as the penultimate boss for StreetFighter characters and his counterpart is none other than [[BigBad M. Bison]]. However, he has a much more noble reason to go after Pandora than both Bison ''and'' Kazuya. Not to mention the fact that he has served as the main representative for Tekken in [[NamcoXCapcom other]] [[ProjectXZone crossovers]].

* DudeNotFunny: Early development win quotes against [[Transsexual Poison]] included:
** Ryu's "I'll be careful not to fall into your trap"
** Chun-Li's "I felt like I was fighting a guy"
** Kuma's "You smell like a man"
** Then an LGBT group complained and these were replaced. The only remnants are Craig's more postive "I don't care, you're attractive anyway" and her MirrorMatch quote about trying to remember the song "[[Music/MichaelJackson Man in the Mirror]]"

*** The 2013 patch has been Capcom's attempt to pull a RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap. Whether this is successful remains to be seen but initial reception is positive.

** The teaser of Mega Man had fans enraged. Partially because of the character getting passed over for the roster of ''Marvel vs. Capcom 3'', but mostly because the teaser image was the "Bad Box Art" version of the character from the old [=NES=] games as opposed to the actual character himself.



*** Then is the fact that the {{PlayStation 3}} and {{PlayStation Vita}} owners will be the only ones getting guest characters had {{Xbox 360}} fans in an uproar ([[VideoGame/MortalKombat9 again]]), since they are getting zilch, something further compounded by the fact that the 360 version [[http://www.eventhubs.com/news/2012/jan/24/sfxt-xbox-360-could-have-had-master-chief-and-marcus-fenix/ lacks any exclusive characters whatsoever]]. And, after the release, hackers discovered that [[http://www.destructoid.com/crapload-of-dlc-found-on-street-fighter-x-tekken-disc-223138.phtml all the exclusive Sony stuff is on 360 disks.]] Xbox owners feel spat on.

** Remember when hackers found the data for, and actually used, Mega Man and Pac-Man on 360? ''The data is going to remain locked'' Capcom announced that those two are PS3 exclusive and will never, ever, come to the 360.
** ''Street Fighter X Tekken'' will be returning for EVO 2013. And it's the patched version coming out at the end of January. Needless to say, a lot of people who felt that there were more "worthy" games to choose from are pissed.

to:

* IKnewIIKnewIt: Asuka was teased back in a cinematic shot where she was obscured, so it was simply a matter of when they would announce her.
* InternetBackdraft: Whilst fans were pleased when it was revealed that Elena, Sakura, Blanka, Dudley, Cody, Guy, Lars, Alisa, Lei, Jack, Bryan and Christie made it into the game, this reaction died down once it was learnt that they would be DLC on the home consoles. And then the fandom exploded in outrage after early copies of the Xbox 360 version of the game were hacked and it was learnt that all 12 characters were already fully completed ''and on the disc'' for release (with Mega Man and Pac-Man also being on the 360 disc) and Capcom had locked them out to charge for them once the Vita port (which has all 12 unlocked out of the box as a selling point) was released ''in the fall.''
** Don't even get to the backdraft that 360 owners have been doing, with having no exclusive characters to begin with (despite the fact that both Mega Man and Pac-Man are on the 360 disc), and a lack of local four-player support.
*** Or worse still, the reveal of Mega Man in his "Bad Box Art" form, especially after the back-to-back cancellation of several ''Mega Man'' games.
* {{Mondegreen}}: Many of the defeat quotes. Balrog still wants his bike money. Dhalsim seems to want Hugo to help him. Rolento recommends {{Dinotopia}}.
* NightmareFuel:
** The Pandora's Box stage, more specifically the "2nd round" version. The corpses of Mishima Zaibatsu soldiers flying around and glowing? A Pandora-infused Tyrannosaurus Rex, accompanied with the Pandora-infused wooly mammoth from the "Antarctica" stage? The fact that you're fighting [[SNKBoss Akuma or Ogre]] on this stage in arcade mode, and you're probably going to have to use a lot of continues and see this creepy stage again? Oh, sweet Jesus.
** The Antarctica stage. You are facing a pair of Pandora-infused characters while the aformentioned Pandora-infused wooly mammoth is chasing the hovercraft you are fighting inside. To add on top of that, some of the dialogue from the opposing team is downright disturbing, like Xiaoyu willingly giving in to Pandora to help Jin. (of a 2 minute intro) dedicated to him acting goofy amidst the more serious fights did not help.
** Everything about Pac-Man. His intro makes him sound like an embodiment of HorrorHunger, his confrontation with rival VideoGame/MegaMan has him giving the latter a rather creepy stare, ''giggling'' when his ally sacrifices themself to power Pandora Mode and [[spoiler:his ending has him almost mindlessly devouring trees in a city after growing several feet tall!]]
** Bryan Fury's Super move involves him slamming his opponent into the ground, and then [[TheFourthWallWillNotProtectYou the camera switching to the opponent's POV]] as Bryan repeatedly ''stomps their face in''. And the whole time, Bryan is [[EvilLaugh maniacally]] [[LaughingMad laughing]] in a way that sounds [[TheJoker a little too familiar]]...It doesn't help that one of Bryan's alternate costumes is, basically, a {{Monster Clown}}.
** The SlasherSmile Bison makes in his trailer appearance.
* TheScrappy:
** Rufus. When he was revealed at the 2011 New York Comic Con, he was outright booed by part of the audience. They also booed him because he was confirmed as Zangief's tag partner, which upset a lot of people, particularly the R. Mika camp.
*** The fact he got a full 15 seconds in the intro. Not much until you note how short the intro was in the first place.
** Bad Box Art Mega Man.
** The game ''itself'' could be considered this for the ''Vs.'' series due to all the flak it's gotten.
*** The 2013 patch has been Capcom's attempt to pull a RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap. Whether this is successful remains to be seen but initial reception is positive.
* SongAssociation: Plenty of examples:
** ''Music/BlackTide''[='=]s "Honest Eyes" became the main song for everything ''[=SFxT=]''-related.
** ''Music/HollywoodUndead''[='=]s "My Town," for everything ''VideoGame/FinalFight''-related.
** ''Music/RiseAgainst''[='=]s "From Heads Unworthy," for the Jin/Xiaoyu vs. M. Bison/Juri trailer.
* TaintedByThePreview: Bad Box Art Mega Man.
* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: The trailers provided more nonsensical stories than the actual game which suffered from ExcusePlot and IdiotPlot. The Cinematic Trailer 5 is arguably the most complex storyline Capcom has ever made in a crossover. There we learn that Jin wishes to capture Ryu who is instead being targeted by Jin's father, Kazuya, for an unknown reason. The promotional song appears to focus on the complicated relationship between Jin and Kazuya with the former becoming the target of none other than Bison. Instead, Jin ended fighting the cops.

** Bad Box Art Mega Man was apparently suggested by Inafune himself, but his unveiling came right off the heels of Inafune leaving, two cancelled ''Mega Man'' games, and Mega Man getting shafted ''twice'' in ''Marvel vs. Capcom 3'' (he did make an appearance in the form of a cameo, however). What could have been a good-natured ribbing on the character was made [[DudeNotFunny rather unfunny]] due to the preceding events, which puts this squarely into this category.
