''VideoGame/{{X-Men Vs Street Fighter}}'' was a huge hit, and in 1997, Capcom followed it up with '''Marvel Super Heroes vs. Street Fighter'''.

The Marvel roster retained Wolverine and Cyclops (and brought back Omega Red from ''[=CotA=]'') and was extended with CaptainAmerica, {{Spider-Man}}, [[Comicbook/DoctorStrange Shuma-Gorath]], Comicbook/TheIncredibleHulk and Blackheart. The ''StreetFighter'' side was pretty much left alone, with the exceptions of Cammy and Charlie (who were replaced by Dan and Sakura). The game also featured a number of hidden [[PaletteSwap character variants]], such as U.S. Agent, Mephisto, an armored Spider-Man, and a Zangief that couldn't block but was never hit-stunned - as well as Shadow (the result of Charlie being subjected to horrific experiments by Bison). The Japanese version also had an exclusive [[OriginalGeneration original]] character: Norimaro, a JokeCharacter [[NoCelebritiesWereHarmed based on]] Japanese comedian Noritake Kinashi.

The gameplay remained mostly the same as the previous game in fact even using the same backgrounds only remixed. Theres also the addition of being able to call your partner in for an attack without switching out.

Apocalypse is still featured as a boss fight, but instead of fighting your partner after defeating him, the final fight is now against Cyber-Akuma, a version of Akuma who appears to have been somehow transported from this continuity's Age of Apocalypse timeline after having been turn into one of his Horsemen.

Followed in 1998 with '''VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcomClashOfSuperHeroes'''.

!The game shows examples of:
* AGodAmI:
** M. Bison. His ending has him using the same technology used in Cyber-Akuma to make [[spoiler:Cyber-Charlie]], and Bison orders him to destroy everything at will. Also, one of his winquotes:
--> ''"I shall rule all in this pathetic world!"''
** Shuma-Gorath. His ending has him starting to multiply, taking the universe with him. There's also this winquote:
--> ''"I am the eye of the storm to come!"''
** In tone with his character, Apocalypse:
--> ''"I alone prevail... You cannot stop me!"''
--> ''"I am eternal. None can withstand me."''
--> ''"I am eternal. You did not stand a chance, fool!"''
--> ''"I create history your grandchildren will read!"''
--> ''"I was the first. And I alone will be the last!"''
** One of Blackheart's winquotes:
--> ''"I shall rule the universe with my power!"''
* AWinnerIsYou: None of the secret characters get a proper ending, at least in the English version.
* AttractMode
* AnnouncerChatter: '''WELCOME TO THE ADVENTURE!!!'''
* BadassBoast:
--> '''Akuma''': ''[[AboveGoodAndEvil There is no good or evil, only Akuma.]]''
--> '''Cyber-Akuma''': ''There is no greater power than me...''
* BigBad: Apocalypse.
* BloodKnight: Akuma. It gets worse with his Cyber-self:
--> ''"Kill... Destroy... That's all I know..."''
* BreakingTheFourthWall:
--> '''Norimaro:''' ''I've only got a quarter! ...Sorry!''
* ButForMeItWasTuesday: Omega Red's ending has [[spoiler:him killing Ryu offscreen, and Ken is kneeling next to his corpse]].
--> [[spoiler:'''Ken''': ''How many lives have you ended?'']]
--> [[spoiler:'''Omega Red''': ''[[Manga/JojosBizarreAdventure Do you count the number of breaths you've taken?]]'']]
--> [[spoiler:(Cue Ken's offscreen death)]]
* CallingYourAttacks: You'd expect this with the FightingGame characters, naturally. But it even extends to the Marvel {{Superhero}}es, among others.
** '''''[[MemeticMutation BEHOLD!]]''''' '''''[[Comicbook/{{X-Men}} OPTIC BLAST!]]'''''
** '''''[[CaptainAmerica FINAL JUSTICE!]]'''''
** '''''[[IncredibleHulk GAMMA CRUSH!]]'''''
** '''''[[Comicbook/{{Spider-Man}} WEB SWING!]]'''''
*** The [[LargeHam Announcer]] even gets in on the fun by announcing the Hyper Combos used to win a match. Hearing the announcer yell '''SHINKUUTATSUMAKISENPUUKYAKUUUU''' at the end of a match [[CrowningMomentOfFunny has to be heard to be believed]].
* TheCameo: Many characters from both universes make appearances in the endings and stages.
* CombatTentacles: The only plausible explanation as to how Shuma-Gorath made the cut instead of Doctor Strange.
* CombinationAttack: Double Supers.
** Notably, Ryu and Ken have a unique attack where Ken joins Ryu in performing a Shinkuu Hadouken. Zangief has two: if he's the point man, his teammate joins him in performing a Double Final Atomic Buster while in other cases he performs an enhanced Double Lariat.
* DeathFromAbove:
** Mephisto/Blackheart's Armageddon summons a meteor storm to the battlefield.
** The Hulk [[InASingleBound jumps into space]], and essentially pulls a passing meteor from space to drop it on his opponent.
* DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu: Almost literally, with [[EldritchAbomination Shuma-Gorath]].
* DudeWheresMyRespect: Dan's pre-fight against Apocalypse:
--> '''Dan:''' ''I will put the big hurt on you!''
--> '''Apocalypse:''' ''Who are you, posturing idiot?!''
* EverythingsBetterWithSpinning: Zangief.
* FireBreathingDiner: Mecha Zangief had a move where he spewed blue fire.
* ForGreatJustice: Cap's quips in his winquotes.
* GeniusBruiser: The Hulk, where he's in the guise of the Merged Hulk/Professor persona. (remember, The Green Scar from ''Planet Hulk'' and ''WorldWarHulk'' had yet to be created at the time)
* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: Averted. Norimaro was supposed to have a "Kancho" throw in the Japanese port of the game, but when Marvel found out about it, it was promptly removed. More details [[http://tcrf.net/Marvel_Super_Heroes_vs._Street_Fighter_(Arcade) here.]]
* GiantSpaceFleaFromNowhere: [[MemeticMutation And then suddenly, Cyber Akuma!]]
* HulkSpeak: Guess who?
--> '''(Against Apocalypse) :''' ''Hulk hates Apocalypse! HULK SMASH!''
** Parodied in one of his own winquotes:
--> ''"Hulk Smash! Smash! Smash! Only kidding..."''
* InstantAwesomeJustAddMecha:
** Mecha-Zangief, a cybernetic version of Zangief. While not a proper Mecha, this version of Zangief [[TheJuggernaut couldn't flinch and took reduced damage]] from pretty much any attack. He could also use a [[PlayingWithFire fiery]] [[BreathWeapon breath]] attack as Mech-Zangief, the Siberian Breath, similar to Dhalsim's Yoga Blast. The downside is his inability to block in this form.
** Cyber Akuma, (Mecha Gouki in Japan) a roboticized version created by Apocalypse, as the game's final boss. He's a more powerful and faster Akuma that possess the greatest attack and defense of any character in the game, and comes complete with mechanical wings and {{rocket punch}}es.
* IShallTauntYou: Dan, as always:
--> ''"Can you withstand the power of my Super Taunt?"''
* JokeCharacter: Dan (natch) and Norimaro.
* LargeHam: The [[LargeHamAnnouncer announcer]].
--> '''''HYPER COMBO FINIIIIIIISH!!'''''
* LethalJokeCharacter: Dan gets some of the biggest buffs in this game. These humilliating winquotes sum it all:
--> ''"Hah, you're weak! Just like me!"''
--> ''"It's more fun to mock you than defeat you!"''
* KamehameHadoken: The second part of the trope's name comes from the version of the Shinkuu Hadouken, which is the best known of many, MANY, '''MANY''' instances.
* KickChick: Chun-Li.
* MadlibsDialogue:
** Beat the game to get dialogue like this before the character endings: "We make a great team (insert name here)", "We shall meet again (insert name here)".
** It also has another form of it present via the [[CombinationAttack Team Hyper]] finishes: winning a match with one combines their names together which is then displayed in a huge font. The name is tweaked depending on who was the point character at the time. For example, performing a Team Hyper with Spider-Man and Ryu (in that order) is called the "Crawler Hadouken", whereas Ryu and Spider-Man's super is the "Shinkuu Assault." Works with most of them, although some of the time the end result is somewhere in the lines of "Shinkuu Miracle Treasure" or "Knee Press Star". Reaches its most ridiculous with Captain America and US Agent as a team, whose Team Hyper names combine into "Star Star".
** Subverted with the pre-fight quotes against Apocalypse, as every character has an unique one against him.
* TheManBehindTheMan: [[spoiler:Apocalypse, for Cyber-Akuma]].
* NinjaPirateZombieRobot: Cyber Akuma, a cyborg version of an evil BloodKnight who is also a {{Badass}}, and a martial artist, how does ''that'' not count? Oh, and he has a freaking ''ArmCannon'' as well as wings.
* OriginalGeneration: Norimaro. To a much lesser extent, Cyber-Akuma could count as well, being a variant created only for their sole appearance.
* PaintItBlack: Shadow, a roboticized version of Charlie.
* PaletteSwap: Mephisto, U.S. Agent, and any other secret character not called Apocalypse or Cyber-Akuma. They all have different properties compared to their regular versions:
** Armored Spider-Man trades speed for super armor.
** Mephisto has a few win-quotes exclusive to him while adding fire effects to some of his moves.
** U.S. Agent has different winquotes but has similar gameplay to Captain America.
** Dark Sakura fires the Shinkuu Hadouken forward and obtains some of Akuma's properties, including the Shun Goku Satsu.
** Mecha Zangief CANNOT be knocked down, but has the worst mobility in the game.
** Shadow is unique in that he is a palette swap of Charlie, who was not retained from his appearance in the first game.
* PantyShot: Sakura, thanks to the magic of recycled ''[[VideoGame/StreetFighterAlpha Alpha]]'' sprites.
* PoweredArmor: Apocalypse and Mecha-Zangief. Spider-Man's armored version is a lighter version.
* RocketPunch: Cyber-Akuma.
* {{Satan}}: Mephisto.
* {{Shotoclone}}: Aside from the 5 examples of Ryu and Ken, Spider-Man, CaptainAmerica, and Cyclops qualify for this.
* ShoutOut: Check [[ShoutOut/CapcomVsWhatever the page]].
* SNKBoss: Cyber-Akuma, a Shin Akuma variant based on Apocalypse either cloning or mechanizing Akuma.
* {{Stripperific}}: In the men's side, Hulk, Zangief and Dhalsim.
* SuperpoweredEvilSide: Sunburned Sakura (WhatIf Sakura chose to follow Akuma instead of Ryu?).
* SurprisinglyGoodEnglish: All Marvel characters are voiced by native English speakers.
* TagTeam
* TakeThat:
** Also, if Spidey's TakeThat against the Clone Saga in ''VideoGame/MarvelSuperHeroes'' wasn't enough:
--> ''"I'm not a clone! I'm the one and only!"''
** And this winquote from Zangief:
--> ''"No one can compare to me. [[FinalFight Not even a mayor!]]"''
* ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill:
--> '''''"HYPER COMBO FINISH!"'''''
* UnexpectedCharacter: Shuma-Gorath. Omega Red as well, as he hadn't been featured since ''VideoGame/XMenChildrenOfTheAtom.''
* YouWouldntLikeMeWhenImAngry: Again, the Hulk:
--> ''"Don't make me angry! You wouldn't like me..."''
* YourSoulIsMine:
--> '''Mephisto:''' ''Now I tell you a truth. Your soul belongs to me.''
