    Captain America 
Surrender is your only option.
Voiced by: Brian Bloom

The sole recipient of the Super Soldier Serum, Steve Rogers' deep love for his country and his unparalleled sense of justice make him one of the most respected heroes today. He has also been the long-time leader of the Avengers, a group dedicated to keeping the world safe from harm.

    Deadpool 
Check me out! I'm the ghost of Christmas Kick Your Ass!
Voiced by: Nolan North

Yup, that's right peeps, the "Merc With A Mouth" is back in action once again, and I know you've been aching to see me! ...Oh, don't try to hide it, I saw, and heard, your reactions when I was announced, and I can't really blame you, either... For those poor little vego twerps who don't know me, note  here's a short introduction: Originally, I was probably Wade Wilson (but in the "sequel" I really am good 'ol Double Dubya), an all around awesome guy who had money, power and chicks rolling off my fingertips. Life was good, and it got even better after Rob Liefeld was replaced with not quite so pocket obsessed writers, like Joe Kelly and Gail Simone... But before I knew anything about them, I realized something was missing me. Or rather, I had an excess of something... FRICKIN' TERMINAL CANCER!! So, I volunteered to come to The Oprah Winfrey Show and cry a little, but they wouldn't have me, so I volunteered to participate in the Weapon X Project instead, because those percent sign, ampersand, asterisk, dollar sign tards promised to cure me! However, the regenerative process was unstable. My cancer tumors disappeared, only to come back again, and again, and again, and again, and again, and again, and again, and-OH, A FOUND A HIGH-PENNY!! This is a good day! Uh, where was I again? Oh yeah, my cancerous tumor disappeared and came back in an endless cycle thanks to my regenerative ability, and eventually the constant flux between destruction and regeneration of my brain turned me into Susan Boyle...it also made me aware of the man with the typewriter and the yellow boxes. The end result: Former awesome McPimpin' I-think-I-was-Wade-Wilson became the Handsome, Crazy Awesome Badass who could completely obliterate the 4th wall! Talk about taking a level in badass, huh!?

I'm a pretty good all-around kind-of-guy, but boy do I know how to Troll the scrubs online! My special talent is staying in my cozy little corner and turtling, showering the enemy with bullets and bombs that have really good priority. If I've got some good partners I'm really good at locking down the opponent using that strategy. Once they try taking my spot, I can just Shoryuken their asses to the Milky Way! In case you couldn't tell, that was a God Hand reference. If you own a PS2, BUY THIS GAME FROM A BARGAIN BIN OR SOMETHING! IT'S ALMOST AS AWESOME AS ME!

    Doctor Doom 
To face Doom is to face one's end!
Voiced by: Paul Dobson

I, Victor von Doom, am the undefeatable main enemy of that blasted Fantastic Four, as well as the rest of the Marvel superhero community and the greatest Evil Overlord and Mad Scientist that ever lived (and would always be - Doom is immortal, and not even gods or other so-called "higher" beings can trump me).

I was an associate of Reed Richards (Mr. Fantastic), but when he helped me to open an interdimensional rift into hell to rescue the soul of my beloved mother, because he either is incompetent or he wants to sabotage me because he's so jealous of me (perhaps both), the portal blew up my magnificent face (not even that masked, single-clawed Spanish ninja would ever be as attractive as I was). note 

And so I blamed Richards for the whole accident and swore revenge. Then I constructed an advanced suit of armor that included an iron mask to cover my single scar horribly damaged face, and ever since then I showed myself to the world as Doctor Doom. I overthrew the previous ruler of Latveria and claimed it as my own, becoming the new and righteous ruler of my country, and I could easily Take Over the World with all of my knowledge and powers beyond comprehension... If not for that... Blasted... RRRIIIICCHHAAAAAAAARRRRRDDDSS!!!

And in this world that you people called "Marvel vs. Capcom 3", Doom has appeared once again, this time working with Albert Wesker, to Take Over the World. Doom hopes that he does not disappoint, or foolishly attempt to betray Doom. And if you think Doom got beaten so many times in those videos (including the one in which Doom got "beaten" by Wesker, or Phoenix Wright. Doom will have him guilty in Latveria soon), those were just my Doombots. Doom will never put himself in such situation on purpose. And Doom is disappointed because those Capcom ilk used the Super Skrull instead of any of that cursed Fantastic Four, because apparently they cannot be implemented because of various reasons. HA! Who cares about that! Those accursed team or family of Richards are just useless, and apparently Capcom know about it! LOOK WHO'S LAUGHING NOW, RICHARDS!!

    Dormammu 
Who dares defy the Dread One?
Voiced by: Michael T. Weiss

A higher-dimensional energy being, and absolute god-tyrant of his own magical universe, the "Dark Dimension". He wants to conquer all life and afterlife, exterminate any opposing conceptual forces, and rewrite the laws of nature to turn it all into a never-ending torture-camp set up to celebrate the glory of himself.

Due to actually possessing sufficient power and knowledge to potentially pull it off, Dormammu is considered to be "something worse than a demon", and is the archenemy of the hero Doctor Strange, who constantly somehow manages to thwart the entity's chilling mad ambitions.

  • Badass Arm-Fold: During his Dark Hole. He also does the arm fold when he floats.
  • Badass Longcoat
  • Calling Your Attacks:
    POWER OF THE CREATOR!
    POWER OF THE DESTRUCTOR!
    METEOR SHOWER!
    BURN TO CINDERS! CHAOTIC FLAME!
    DARK DIMENSION! Welcome... To my realm...
  • Card-Carrying Villain
  • Death from Above: His meteor shower, which seems to be taken from Mephisto/Blackheart's Armageddon in the past games of the series.
  • Did You Just Punch Out Cthulhu?: Justified in that it takes a long time for him to manifest, for much the same reason as Shuma, and initially he isn't anywhere near as powerful.
  • Dimension Lord/Multiversal Conqueror
    (one of his intro quotes) I will rule this world!
    (to Thor) ''Now Asgard shall fall to me.
    (to any villain except Shuma-Gorath) This planet is mine and now you will die!
    (to Shuma-Gorath) Fair warning... I'm coming for the Chaos Dimension next.
    • And in his ending, he wants to conquer the Capcom world as well, aided by Lord Raptor, Wesker, Akuma, and Red Arremer.
  • Eldritch Abomination: He's a billion-year old immortal member of a race of higher-dimensional mystical energy beings and possesses power enough to threaten the existence of entire universes.
    • Referenced in his fight against Thor, possibly referencing their fight in the game's opening video:
    Not even the power of Asgard can humble the Dread Dormammu.
    • Averted against Shuma-Gorath.
    Ancient One, what is thy will?
  • Evil Laugh: On occasion, when he summons his meteor shower.
  • Evil Sounds Deep
  • Evolving Attack: His Liberation. Depending on how you use your Dark Spells: Creation & Destruction, the resulting attack will change (1 red-1 blue is different with 2 reds-1 blue, for example).
  • Extremity Extremist: He only uses his hands for his attacks.
  • Fireballs: His Stalking Flare hyper, which can slowly homes in on opponent.
  • Flaming Hair/Flaming Skulls: Felicia and Hulk also call him "Flame-head" when they tag out with him.
  • Flight: He is capable of this, for a short time.
  • God of Evil
  • Kamehame Hadoken: His Chaotic Flame.
  • Large and in Charge: Of his own dimension, no less.
  • Large Ham
  • Long-Range Fighter
  • Mighty Glacier: a long-ranged version.
  • Mini-Boss: One of several characters who can serve as Galactus' Herald.
  • Monochromatic Eyes
  • Physical God
  • Pillar of Light: His Purification special.
  • Playing with Fire
  • Power Creep, Power Seep: Canonically, all of the regular characters combined shouldn't even be able to make the guy notice their attacks. He's a higher-dimensional entity. If the game didn't do this, Shuma-Gorath, Dormammu, Phoenix, Galactus, Doctor Strange, Amaterasu, and Morrigan would basically slug it out with the galaxy wiped out around them.
  • Power Echoes
  • Power Glows: His "Dark Spell: Creation" tints one of his hands blue and his "Dark Spell: Destruction" tints the other one red.
  • Red Baron: The Dread Dormammu.
  • Slouch of Villainy: Like Doom, he greets his foes from his Cool Chair.
  • Spikes Of Doom: His "Dark Spell: Creation", if used 2 times and then you use Liberation, he can fire out spikes from the ground.
  • Spikes of Villainy
  • Spiritual Successor: To Blackheart, apparently. Both are heavyweights who mainly focus on long-range attacks. Also worth noting though is that both made the jump on to the main roster of their games before their rivals, Ghost Rider and Doctor Strange. Strange and Ghost Rider were added to the playable roster in Ultimate.
  • Stuff Blowing Up: Using his Liberation after powering it up with "Dark Spell: Destruction" creates a screen-wide explosion.
  • Teleport Cloak
  • This Cannot Be!: One of his K.O. quotes.
  • Trash Talk: In some of his win quotes.
    (to Dante, win quote) Mwahahaha! As if your insignificant abilities were worthy of my notice!
    (to Dante, win screen) As you can see, not all demons are created equal. Stick to fighting Mundus, boy.
    (to Trish, win quote) Ha-ha-ha-ha! You wield power ineffectively.
    (to Trish, win screen) Ha-ha-ha-ha! You are but a demon's toy and do not deserve the freedom you have.
  • Unrealistic Black Hole: His Dark Hole special.
  • Victory Is Boring: Oddly enough.
    (winquote vs. Doctor Strange) Alas, the Dread Dormammu has defeated his greatest foe.
  • Your Soul Is Mine: His win quote against Ghost Rider:
    Now your soul is mine, Blaze.

    Hulk 
Voiced by: Fred Tatasciore

A genius scientist, Bruce Banner accidentally absorbed huge amounts of gamma radiation during a bomb test. As a result, when his anger or negative emotions reach a boiling point, he transforms into the green-skinned Hulk, complete with incredible power that sets the standard for strength.

    Iron Man 
Battle mode initiated.
Voiced by: Eric Loomis

Captured by a terrorist group in a war-torn region, Tony Stark created a battle suit to help him escape. Afterwards, he improved the battle suit to become Iron Man, and has dedicated himself to protecting the peace since.

    Magneto 
Learn now... why they call me the "Master of Magnetism"!
Voiced by: Tom Kane

With almost complete control of magnetism, Erik Magnus Lehnsherr, birth name Max Eisenhardt, is one of the most powerful mutants alive. A survivor of the Auschwitz concentration camp during World War II, he developed the idea that genetically superior mutants should be the ones to rule over mankind. Fighting for the sake of mutantkind, he is a calculating character who stops at nothing to achieve his goals.

  • Ascended Meme: One of his alternate colors is the one from the MAHVEL BAYBEE video.
  • Anti-Villain: He only wants what's best for mutantkind.
  • Authority Equals Asskicking: The Island of Genosha says hi.
  • Badass Grandpa
  • Badass Cape
  • Battle Aura: Apparently the power of magnetism lets you glow with purple electricity.
    • In Marvel vs Capcom 2, Magneto had an passive aura in his hands during his standing animation. This was later patched into later versions of Marvel vs Capcom 3 for Rule of Cool.
  • Calling Your Attacks:
    DISRUPTOR!
    HYPER GRAV!
    FORCE FIELD!
    ATTRACTION!
    MAGNETIC BLAST!
    You have lost! MAGNETIC TEMPEST!
    MAGNETIC SHOCKWAVE!
  • Cool Helmet
  • Counter Attack: His Force Field.
  • Difficult but Awesome: Much like in MvC2, he still has his hard-to-execute loop combos.
  • Evil Laugh: One of his win quotes and Delayed Hyper Combo quotes.
  • First Name Basis: He calls the X-Men by first name, as a nod to their relatively close association. Magneto has even joined the X-Men more than once, includingNation X.
  • Flight: He's capable of this for a short time.
  • Glass Cannon: He has a pretty low 850,000 life, but his loop combos do pretty good damage and he retains much of his speed from MvC2.
  • Ground Pound: In his Magnetic Shockwave hyper.
  • Gravity Master: First seen with his Hyper Grav special and Gravity Squeeze hyper. In Ultimate, he gains the ability to further attract and repel his opponents.
  • Humans Are Bastards: Or at least what he thinks.
  • Insistent Terminology: A variant; he references the Marvel Universe's definition of mutants note .
    (to Wesker) Mutants are born, not created.
  • Long-Range Fighter: Downplayed in that, while many of his specials are ranged attacks, he's often used to attack up close.
  • Only Sane Man: The only one out of the fighters who recognizes and prepares to battle Galactus in the Ultimate intro movie.
  • Power Floats: Instead of walking, he floats.
  • Pragmatic Villainy: His ending has him opt for using Galactus' worldship as a save home for mutants rather than conquering Earth.
  • Red Baron: Magneto, the Master of Magnetism.
  • Role Reprisal: From Wolverine and the X-Men.
  • Selective Magnetism
  • Slide Attack
  • Social Darwinist
  • Think Happy Thoughts: He needs to learn to do this, according to Morrigan (when she wins) at least.
  • Villainous Rescue: In the Episode 3 Trailer. Fan speculation has him as either a Defector from Decadence or an Anti-Villain playing for his own side.
  • Visionary Villain
    (One of his intro quotes) Allow me to share my dream for this world.
    (One of his winquotes) The time for subtlety is passing. Now is the time for change.
  • We Can Rule Together
    (One of his winquotes) I had thought to recruit you for my Brotherhood. Your performance has caused me to reconsider the offer.
  • Wolverine Publicity: He's only absent in Marvel Super Heroes vs. Street Fighter.
  • Worthy Opponent: Apparently sees Vergil as one.
    (winquote against Vergil): Shame you're not a mutant. You'd make a good addition to my Brotherhood.
  • You Remind Me of X
    (to Dante) Brash. Arrogant. Rude. Even a white head of hair. You remind me of my son (Quicksilver) in many ways.
    (to Vergil) Your appearance reminds me of my son. Let's see if you boast his speed in battle.
  • You Will Not Evade Me: His Hyper Grav, if it successfully hits the opponent, will drag him/her closer to him. Also, one of his Ultimate-only moves ("Attraction") involves him regularly pulling his enemy closer to him, wherever they may be.
    • His Level 3 (Gravity Squeeze) can hit the opponent wherever they are. Fortunately, it still can be blocked.

    M.O.D.O.K. 
If you think I've evolved beyond the joys of murder, you'd be wrong!
Voiced by: Wally Wingert

Formerly just a regular human, George Tarleton was forced to become a living human experiment and was subsequently turned into M.O.D.O.K. (Mental Organism Designed Only for Killing). Calling himself the Scientist Supreme and using his vast intellect and psionic powers, he annihilated all those who were involved in his experiment.

  • Ambidextrous Sprite: Despite using 3D models for the game, his flying chair.
  • Authority Equals Asskicking: Regardless of his treatment here, one must remember that M.O.D.O.K. is the leader of A.I.M.
  • Awesomeness by Analysis:
    By my calculations, you'll be dead within seconds!
  • Ax-Crazy
  • Badass Boast: A surprising one, delivered to Nemesis of all people.
    I've had experiments like you, I call them failures.
  • Beehive Barrier: Whenever he blocks, these appear.
  • Butt Monkey: As the Episode 3 trailer shows, he gets his cables cut by X-23's claws, then smacked into oblivion by the Hulk.
  • Calling Your Attacks:
    PSIONIC BLASTER!
    ANALYZE CUBE!
    BODY ATTACK!
    JAMMING BOMB!
    LIMIT BURST! Don't move!
    KILLER ILLUMINATION! Hold that pose!
    Kill! Kill! HYPER PSIONIC BLASTER!!!
  • Cephalothorax
    Arthur (when tagging in M.O.D.O.K.): Pumpkin Head!
    Hulk (when tagging in M.O.D.O.K.): Big Head!
    Wesker: I do so look forward to dissecting that ridiculously large brain of yours.
    Deadpool: So... basically, I just beat up Humpty Dumpty in a rocket chair, huh?
  • Combat Tentacles: The mechanical version, used for his Killer Illumination hyper.
  • Cool Chair: He is the chair.
  • Crossdresser: He has an alternate costume that makes him appear as MODAM, a make-up wearing female counterpart. The costume still uses his voice, though.
  • Deflector Shields: He can produce one.
  • Did You Just Punch Out Cthulhu?
    (to Amaterasu, Thor or Shuma-Gorath) Now I can add killing a god to my resume.
  • Difficult but Awesome: His moves are unorthodox, but he can be a deadly fighter once you master him. As many fans said, his powers are equivalent to trolling.
  • Dude Looks Like a Lady: Sort of. One of his alternate costumes is patterned after his female counterpart, M.O.D.A.M. but still looks and sounds like M.O.D.O.K. and is every bit as ugly.
  • Evil Laugh: Let's just say he does this many times.
  • Evil Tastes Good: He's got a sweet tooth for murder, it would seem.
    Death is like candy!
  • Evilutionary Biologist
  • Flight: MODOK has the longest flight in the game. And where other characters need a special input in order to activate their flight, MODOK can activate his own if you simply press up.
  • Faux Affably Evil: He's genuinely evil and likes to kill, but he has a number of moments that makes him look hilarious. He can also be Ax-Crazy or Laughably Evil, sometimes both at the same time.
  • For Science!:
    (after defeating Rocket Raccoon) I defeated a raccoon! SCIENCE!
  • Gonk: Though it's not as ratcheted up as in the comics, in all fairness.
    Chris: I've seen some God-forsaken monsters in my time, but you are by far the ugliest.
    (Victory screen vs. Shuma Gorath) And they call me odd looking.
  • Homing Projectile: Subverted with his Balloon Bomb, which is just semi-homing (it will stop moving after some distance), but played straight with his Jamming Bomb which slowly homes in on opponent.
  • I'll Kill You!
    (intro vs. Rocket Raccoon) You're cute. Time to die!
  • Magikarp Power: How his Analyze Cubes work. Each time one successfully hits, his forehead gem begins to glow and his specials and hypers either do more damage and gain new properties (his triangular energy barrier grows in size and his smart bombs mess with your controls, among others).
    • Also, a Hyper Psionic Blaster fully charged through this method (after 9 hits from Analyze Cubes) can inflict massive damage.
  • Mirror Match: Lampshaded.
    (to himself) Never again will I forget to lobotomize one of my clones!
  • Monochromatic Eyes
  • Power Crystal: On his head.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: In one of his alternate color schemes.
  • The Rival: Cap (see his section above) and surprisingly, Crimson Viper.
    C. Viper: [on her phone] I've found M.O.D.O.K., the leader of A.I.M... Understood.
  • Role Reprisal: From The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes.
  • So Long, Suckers!: Every time he tags out.
    This isn't over!
  • Troll: According to fans, at least, he could give Hazama a run for his money.
    M.O.D.O.K.(before fighting Nemesis T-Type): I've had experiments like you. I call them failures!
  • Unexpected Character
  • Use Your Head: His Battering Ram special and its hyper variant.
  • Wave Motion Gun: His Hyper Psionic Blaster.

    Phoenix 
You're about to deal with forces you can't possibly comprehend.
Voiced by: Jennifer Hale

Telepath Jean Grey became the vessel for the powerful Phoenix Force, which grants Jean near god-like powers when it becomes fully active. When she can no longer control her powers, a split personality, the Dark Phoenix, awakens. The Dark Phoenix lives only for destruction, and its thirst will never be quenched.

    Sentinel 
Attention: cease and desist.
Voiced by: Jim Ward

A robot mutant hunter developed by Bolivar Trask, a scientist who felt that mutants were becoming a threat to mankind. Without developing their own artificial intelligence, Sentinels dutifully obey their orders, no matter who gives them.

    She-Hulk 
Voiced by: María Canals Barrera

Bruce Banner's (Hulk) cousin. After being gravely injured, Jennifer Walters received a blood transfusion from Banner which allowed her to transform into She-Hulk. Her transformation extends as far as her personality, going from meek and mousy to strong-willed and confident.

    Shuma-Gorath 
Embrace... CHAOS!
Voiced by: Paul Dobson

God of another dimension. As he will assume the form of whatever it is that people fear, he has no true form. Having taken a liking to Earth, he has tried to rule over the planet many times since the prehistoric age, but has usually been thwarted by a shaman or magic user, such as Doctor Strange.

  • Accidental Hero: In his ending.
  • Affably Evil: It seems that's the general opinion Capcom has of him and implements it in the games, after his debut in the series, in which his ending was fitting of his status, almost all of Shuma Gorath's subsequent endings consists of him doing something not evil to outright good; and in this installment things were no different, with him becoming a Japanese game show host.
  • Ascended Extra: Has been one since the Marvel Super Heroes days: Shuma-Gorath's pretty much better known to gamers than to comic-readers, as he seldom appears in the comics.
  • Badass Tentacle Fold
  • Badass Boast:
    How would a creature like you stand a chance of defeating the Infinite?!
    • Ultimate added a new hint of aggression towards Dormammu.
    You stand no chance of defeating me, hellspawn!
  • Breaking the Fourth Wall: His victory pose involves him running at the camera and jumping towards it, possibly strangling it with his tentacles.
  • Calling Your Attacks:
    MYSTIC STARE!
    MYSTIC SMASH!
    DEVITALIZATION!
    HYPER MYSTIC RAY!
    HYPER MYSTIC SMASH!
    WELCOME TO THE CHAOS DIMENSION!
  • Catch Phrase: His phrase "Waste of flesh" has stuck with him in each of the games he has been in.
  • Combat Tentacles: Word of God states that this is why he got into these games in the first place, as well as explaining why he made the cut over Doctor Strange (Capcom Japan wanted something more creative than a "guy with a cape").
    Hsien-Ko: Woah, I don't even want to touch that!
    Haggar: Doesn't look like an arm lock's gonna work on you. Whoa!
  • Comically Serious: one of his lines against Deadpool.
    I do not appreciate being called calamari, and what is this "dipping sauce" you keep referring to?
  • Did You Just Punch Out Cthulhu?: Almost literally. However, much like Dormammu he has problems entering lower planes, as fully manifesting would automatically wipe out any surrounding galaxies from aura pressure alone. Even Doctor Strange is extremely pressed against him, and the most powerful known demon lords are supposed to be as mice in comparison. In his home dimension, and in many of his comic appearances, he's humongous. His size change for the game could be explained by his lower level of power based upon what dimension he is in.
  • Downloadable Content
  • Eldritch Abomination
  • Evil Laugh: Sometimes he introduces himself before a match with cackling laughter.
  • Evil Tastes Good: Since we're pretty much talking about Cthulhu, this might not be an overstatement.
    I can taste your fear! And it's delicious!
  • Extra Eyes: For his Quoggoth costume.
  • Eye Beam: As a regular attack, special move, and hyper.
  • God of Evil: He and Dormammu both fit this trope well, though unlike Dormammu, Shuma actually is a god.
  • Heel-Face Turn: Shuma's ending involves him becoming the unlikely savior of the Earth, even though he intended to conquer it. He eventually accepts this and gets his own game show.
  • I'll Kill You!
    (Intro vs. Vergil) I'll eviscerate you, half-breed!
  • Large Ham
  • Mirror Match: Shuma doesn't seem to mind fighting himself. In fact, he rather likes it.
    Shuma-Gorath: What a handsome devil you are!
    • And when he beats himself:
    An eye for an eye.
  • Multiversal Conqueror: Just like how Dormammu threatens this when he beats Shuma-Gorath, he returns the favor:
    (winquote vs. Dormammu) I'll come for your dimension next!
    (winquote vs. Dr. Strange) With you out of the way, this dimension finally belongs to Shuma-Gorath. Ha ha ha ha!
  • Not Drawn to Scale: In the Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 intro trailer, Shuma-Gorath is shown to be huge. Big enough to break through an entire building. Big enough for one of his tentacles to be able to completely flatten Chris. Big enough for Felicia to look like an insect on his head. In-game? He meets eye to torso with most of the cast. The size presented in the intro is far closer to the size he is in the comics.
  • Oculothorax
  • One-Shot Character: Shuma-Gorath's inclusion in the franchise has always been odd, considering that he's almost never seen in the comics. Aside from a few classic appearances in Doctor Strange back in the day, Shuma-Gorath is barely known outside the games.
    • Coincidentally (or perhaps intentionally) he made a reappearance in the comics in the same month vanilla MvC3 was released.
  • Physical God
  • Power Echoes
  • Power Creep, Power Seep: Canonically, he would likely be the most powerful playable character in the game, above even the Phoenix Force or a fully powered Galactus, and being the only Doctor Strange enemy who likely exceeds Dormammu. Shuma's only weakness in the comics is being magically banished by high-level beings. Any punch or kick to him he would scoff at. His power (and size) is also limited directly by how much influence he holds over that dimension. He doesn't hold much sway over Earth's dimension, so it's very possible that he's already at his full strength.
  • Power Glows: If you look carefully, there's a red glow underneath Shuma's body when he's on the ground.
  • Red Baron: The Lord of Chaos.
  • Smug Super: Even with only one eye and no other facial features, you can tell he's a smug bastard. He's the only character who seems to go out of his way to strike poses after he attacks, whether this be his Badass Arm-Fold or his B-Boy stance.
    (to Haggar) You govern, but without any real power!
    (to Ghost Rider) The power of Hell is no concern to the Lord of Chaos.
  • Trash Talk
    (victory vs. Vergil) You're an embarrassment to demons everywhere.
  • Unskilled, but Strong: If his bio's statistics are to be believed, at least. His fighting ability is very low, while strength, speed and stamina are maxed out, with energy projection being one bar away from it's maximum as well.
  • Walking Wasteland: Wherever he steps, a small red aura is left behind.
  • Wolverine Publicity: Factoring out X-Men: Children of the Atom and X-Men vs. Street Fighter, Shuma's only missed out on Marvel vs. Capcom so far.
  • Villainous Crush: Seems to have at least something along those lines for Hsien-Ko, considering this...
    As bride of the old one you would be given many dimensions as a dowry.
  • You Will Be Assimilated: From his victory quote:
    Everything in this world will be devoured by chaos and then become a part of me!

    Spider-Man 
Voiced by: Josh Keaton

While attending a public science exhibit, young Peter Parker was bitten by a radioactive spider; this granted him special abilities, and he became the hero Spider-Man. When his beloved uncle was killed by a criminal Peter could have apprehended but chose not to, he swore to live by the creed of "With great power there must also come great responsibility."

  • All Webbed Up
  • Apologetic Attacker: Upon defeating Viewtiful Joe.
    Sorry, little guy. Beating you up is like stepping on a kitten.
  • Badass Bookworm
  • Biting-the-Hand Humor: In-Universe: in his intro against the demonic Firebrand, Spider-Man asks if he has any relation to JJ.
    • He also appears to ask Ghost Rider if he'd be interested in harvesting JJ's soul.
  • Building Swing: His Web Swing.
  • Calling Your Attacks:
    WEB BALL!
    SPIDER STING!
    WEB SWING!
    WEB THROW!
    ULTIMATE! WEB! THROW!
    Crawler! ASSAULT!
    Get ready! MAXIMUM SPIDER!
  • Comes Great Responsibility: He's the Trope Namer, after all. He tries to teach it to Wesker.
    You've got great power, Albert, but you're not very responsible with it.
    • Also spoofed in one of his intro quotes:
    With a great power comes a great beatdown.
    • And one of his standard winquotes:
    Sometimes with a great power comes the great responsibility to beat the bejeezus out of somebody.
  • Cuteness Proximity: Towards Viewtiful Joe.
    • Then again, he was probably entering his Sarcasm Mode to be condescending.
  • Diving Kick: His Maximum Spider ends with this.
  • Downer Ending: His ending, Played for Laughs. After risking his neck to fight Galactus, something he shouldn't be able to do, he tries to sell the pictures to JJJ, who promptly shoots it down because it makes Spidey look heroic, causing him to question why he even bothers to save people if he doesn't even get respect after saving two different worlds nearly single-handedly.
  • First Name Basis: Calls Wesker "Albert".
  • Fragile Speedster
  • Fun Personified
  • Giving Someone the Pointer Finger: Before his Crawler Assault hyper.
  • Mirror Match: Lampshaded.
    (to himself) Was that a clone me or a Skrull me I just beat? I can never tell sometimes.
  • Name's the Same: Upon winning against Felicia, he lampshades her similarities to sometimes-ally-sometimes-enemy Felicia Hardy aka Black Cat.
    What is it with me and cat women named Felicia? Jeez.

  • Shotoclone
  • Trash Talk: In almost all of his quotes.
    (after beating Doctor Strange): So now you're, what? Sorcerer Kinda-OK-ayish?
    (win screen quote versus Strange): Jeez... next time maybe you should cast a spell that'll make you not suck.
    (versus Deadpool): Hey, Mister WIIIIIIIIIILLLLLLLLSON! You suck.
    Wolverine (when he wins): That sure shut ya up, now didn't it, punk?
  • Troll: The one and only. He's pretty much does this even when not fighting.
  • Wolverine Publicity: He appears in all "Marvel"-titled Capcom games (including Marvel Super Heroes).
  • You Fight Like a Cow: The staple for the character.
    Dude, you suck!
    Looooooser!

    (after winning) I must admit, beating the living snot out of you was a great honor.
  • You Remind Me of X
    (winquote vs. Firebrand) You know, you sort of look like the guy who ruined my marriage. (Mephisto)
  • You Will Not Evade Me: He can use his web strings to pull enemies in.

    Storm 
You now face Storm of the X-Men.
Voiced by: Susan Dalian

Though she survived the ordeal, Ororo Munroe's parents died when a plane crashed into their home. Being buried under rubble proved a traumatic experience that would leave her with severe claustrophobia. Orphaned, she became a street thief in order to get by. She was later recruited by Charles Xavier, and decided to put her powers to use for good as a member of the X-Men.

    Super-Skrull 
There's far too much trash in the universe.
Voiced by: Charlie Adler

Kl'rt is a genetically-engineered super soldier created by the Skrulls to defeat the Fantastic Four, who stopped their invasion of Earth. His pride and tendency to look down on others is not unique to him, but a characteristic of the Skrull race in general.

    Taskmaster 
You're the asskick-ee, I'm the asskicker!
Voiced by: Steve Blum

Let yon battle be dedicated to Odin, the Allfather!
Voiced by: Rick D. Wasserman

Voiced by: Steve Blum

Beneath James "Logan" Howlett's gruff and crude exterior lies a noble spirit who genuinely treasures his comrades. However, in the face of his enemies he is merciless, often employing extreme measures in his methods.

    X- 23 
I'm the second best at what I do.
Voiced by: Tara Strong

Cloned from a damaged Wolverine gene sample, X-23 (baptized Laura Kinney by the scientist who looked after her) was created for one reason: to be the perfect killing machine. For years, she proved herself a notable assassin, though a series of tragedies eventually led her to Wolverine and the X-Men, with whom she now seeks to turn her life around.

    Final Boss: Galactus 
Voiced by: Jonathan Adams

The sole survivor of the universe before the Big Bang, Galan was recreated into a "galactic ravager" by the sentience of the previous universe. In order for the giant-sized goliath to survive, Galactus feeds off the energy of living planets, which are located by his herald the Silver Surfer.
