[[quoteright:170:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/170px-Captain_America_MvsC3-FTW_2821.PNG]]
-->Surrender is your only option.
-->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/BrianBloom

The sole recipient of the Super Soldier Serum, [[ComicBook/CaptainAmerica 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.

Cap's moveset is cut from a similar cloth as Ryu and Akuma (projectile via his shield, multi-hitting charge in place of a hurricane kick, rising uppercut), but distances himself with his shield toss move pulling opponents towards him and a special movement option to better avoid attacks. He also has an edge over them with his air game, with the aforementioned shield toss and his ''Ultimate''-granted double jump owing to more advanced air combos.

* AndThisIsFor: To IronMan, in regards to ''Comicbook/CivilWar''.
--> And ''that'' was for Comicbook/CivilWar.
* ApologeticAttacker:
--> (''When he wins against Spencer'') Doesn't exactly make me happy to take down a fellow soldier.
--> (''After performing an Assist'') Sorry, soldier!
* AsskickingEqualsAuthority: His DLC costume gives him his Director of SHIELD outfit.
* AvengersAssemble: He yells this when he is the first person picked on a team out of himself, Iron Man, Thor or Hawkeye.
** Amusingly, if you're doing a challenge that makes every enemy team three copies of the same character, he also says it if you fight three Iron Mans.
* BadassBaritone
* ButForMeItWasTuesday: In Ultimate, when facing off against Taskmaster, Cap doesn't seem to remember him and asks him who he is.
* CallingYourAttacks:
--> SHIELD SLASH!
--> CHARGING STAR!
--> STARS AND STRIPES!
--> FINAL JUSTICE!
--> For Freedom! [[PunctuatedPounding STARS! AND! STRIPES!]]
--> HYPER... CHARGING... STAR!
* TheCape
* CaptainPatriotic
* ComplimentBackfire: When he references the 1940's warplane, it seems to go over Zero's head, both being fast, fragile and prone to self destructive charges.
* {{Determinator}}
--> "Surrender" is not in my vocabulary, pal.
* DoubleJump: In ''Ultimate''.
* {{Eagleland}}: Flavor 1.
* EmpoweredBadassNormal: Well, he used a SuperSerum to become what he is now (he was once weak and limp), but what that serum does is just enhancing his overall power and durability to the peak of human performance.
* FightingYourFriend:
--> (''to Thor'') I never thought it would come to this, Avenger.
* FirstNameBasis: With Iron Man, Hawkeye, Nova, and Doctor Strange ("Tony!" "Clint!" "Richie!" and "Stephen!", respectively).
* GratuitousEnglish: In the Japanese version of the game, he uses a lot of English words in his winning speech bubbles, written in English script and all. This doesn't extend to his spoken dialogue, though, as there are no Japanese voices for the Marvel characters.
* HeroicBuild
* HumansAreSpecial:
--> (''when he wins against Thor'') You gods need to learn that the human spirit can accomplish anything.
--> (''in his victory image against him'') Sometimes men can do extraordinary things. Even [[DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu topple their gods]].
* JackOfAllStats
* LagCancel: He can cancel his dash with crouching and then dashing again, making it quicker to approach opponents.
* LuckilyMyShieldWillProtectMe: Unfortunately, the same can't be said for his opponents...
** ShieldBash: His Charging Star and Stars And Stripes (see "{{Shoryuken}}" below) specials, as well as their hyper counterparts. His Charging Star, in particular, [[InvulnerableAttack can go through projectiles.]]
** ThrowingYourShieldAlwaysWorks: His Shield Slash, which now also hits [[PrecisionGuidedBoomerang upon flying back]].
*** BoomerangComeback: Unlike in the previous games, his shield will automatically fly back towards him after being thrown.
* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname: Almost everybody calls him "Cap" when they tag out with him. Well, pronouncing his complete name would be too long.
** Subverted with IronMan: When he tags Iron Man in, he calls him by "Tony!", to which Iron Man responds in kind with "Steve!"
** Also subverted with M.O.D.O.K. and Rocket Raccoon, the only characters who fully call out "Captain America!"
* TheRival: M.O.D.O.K. After all, he started out as a strictly Captain America villain.
--> '''Cap''': There's only one way to deal with a maniac like you.
--> '''M.O.D.O.K.''': The ultimate battle of brains vs. brawn.
* RoleReprisal: From ''WesternAnimation/TheAvengersEarthsMightiestHeroes''.
* {{Shoryuken}}: His Stars And Stripes special. This also has a hyper variant, which resembles [[StreetFighter Ken]]'s Shoryuu Reppa.
* {{Shotoclone}}
* SpinningPiledriver: In his Final Justice hyper, which [[AwesomenessIsVolatile creates an explosion.]]
* SuperSoldier
* TechnicalPacifist[=/=]MartialPacifist
--> (''to Haggar'') A true leader would only use violence as a last resort.
* TechnicianVersusPerformer: Against Strider Hiryu.
-->All skill, no heart, no victory.
* TheHeart: It's subtle, but it's still there. The cinematic movies of the game begin [[{{LetsYouAndHimFight}} with Marvel characters fighting against Capcom ones]] (along with unexpected alliances like [[{{ResidentEvil}} Chris Redfield]] saving [[VideoGame/{{Darkstalkers}} Morrigan]], for example). Cap is the first hero to actually protect guys from other universe - thus switching the battle to a good guys vs bad guys mode.
* TrueBeautyIsOnTheInside: A variant:
--> (''to Spencer'') Metal parts don't make a man. It's what's inside that counts.
* WolverinePublicity: He appears in all "''Marvel''"-titled Capcom ''Vs.'' games (including ''VideoGame/MarvelSuperHeroes'').

[[folder:Deadpool]]
[[quoteright:210:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/210px-Deadpool_MvsC3-FTW_6077.PNG]]
--> Check [[SelfDemonstrating/{{Deadpool}} me]] out! I'm the ghost of Christmas Kick Your Ass!
-->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/NolanNorth

After a botched suicide attempt, Wade Wilson was drafted to a secret government training program where medical exams diagnosed him with over 40 cancerous tumors, that couldn't be removed without killing him. To fix this, he volunteered for the Weapon X program to give him a HealingFactor similar to Wolverine's, but it backfired as said healing factor ''accelerated'' the cancer and left him with a horribly disfigured face. He was deemed a failure and sent to Dr. Kilebrew, whose extremely cruel tendencies towards his patients drove him insane. He broke out of the Weapon X labs and became a mercenary, calling himself Deadpool because he always won a game he played with inmates over guessing who would die next.

Dark backstory aside, good ol' Deadpool is one of Marvel's most recognizable characters thanks to his humorous personality, craziness, wacky antics and fourth wall-obliterating tendencies. He's a complete WildCard, switching allegiances frequently and often talking to two voices inside his head. For his appearance in this game, he continues breaking the fourth wall, and generally jamming as much of his craziness into his moveset and quotes as possible.

Gameplay-wise, he's pretty good all-around, but he's really good at keeping enemies away with high-priority bullets and bombs. With good partners, he's also good at locking down the opponent using that strategy, and using "his" Shoryuken as a LauncherMove if they get close.

* AirplaneArms: How he dashes.
* AndThisIsFor: When he wins against Arthur, he drops this fourth wall-breaking gem:
--> And this is for lulling me into great side-scrolling adventures [[NintendoHard that were never possible to beat!]]
* AscendedFanboy:
** A somewhat socipating version of this towards the ''Franchise/StreetFighter'' characters. [[HilariousInHindsight Which is only natural]], since he already used a Shoryuken in his home comic.
--> (''to any'' Franchise/StreetFighter ''character'') Hey, I frickin' love ''Street Fighter''! Autograph your spleen for me?
** He's also an ''Franchise/AceAttorney'' fan, according to ''Ultimate''.
--> (''vs. Phoenix Wright''): '''Objection!''' Wow, that is so fun to say!
* AscendedMeme:
** He keeps the {{Shoryuken}} he used in his home comic. Unlike the usual Shoryuken, Deadpool's is used as a launcher, so it puts the opponent in a vulnerable position and has quick recovery, despite having has almost no horizontal range and very short vertical range.
--> '''Ryu''': You stole my Shoryuken? When did you...!?
** His win quote against Magneto references the infamous '''MAHVEL, BAYBEE!''' video:
--> [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qxAbRmOiqvo&t=03m23s I just beat Mag-freakin'-neto! Where yo curleh mustache at?!]]
** His intro quote against Magneto references the ''other'' notable Magneto line from the Creator/{{Konami}} [[VideoGame/XMen arcade game]].
--> [[EvilLaugh HAHAHA!]] Magneto! Welcome TO DIE!
%%* AudienceSurrogate: Due to my pancreas rapturing [[CloudCuckoolander awesomeness]], I essentially serve as a bridge between Marvel and Capcom fans (both old and new; heck, I'm currently petitioning for a Vulgus 2), while simultaneously referencing and mocking the ever-loving [[ComicBook/Marvel2099 shock]] out of you all.
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: He's goofy as hell to say the least, but extremely deadly regardless.
* EmpoweredBadassNormal: Previously a normal guy with terminal cancers (Although some versions of his past do describe him as a good mercenary), Weapon X made him even better.
%%** PopCulturedBadass: In part thanks to there being NoFourthWall for me.
* BloodKnight:
** He puts it best in his intro:
--> Who was I supposed to kill again? Heh, doesn't matter!
** When tagging in after one or both teammates are defeated, he also says "Yay! Now it's fighty time!" or "Blood blood blood!", which double as references to the moment he used a {{Shoryuken}} on Kitty Pride.
* BreakingTheFourthWall: Being one of his trademarks in the comics, he does it with gusto in this game as well:
** His Level 3 Hyper has him beat the opponent with ''the {{HUD}}''.
--> Health bar in your face!
** His winpose has him walking up to the camera in order to chew out the player, and several of my win speeches actually do the player:
--> Hey! Yeah, you! [[WhatTheHellPlayer I'm down here busting my ass while you sit on yours watching me jump around]]?! How is ''that'' fair?
--> (''[[GameplayAndStoryIntegration if he barely wins the fight]]'') ''You, with the controller! I won DESPITE you. You suck. [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking And you smell... really smell.]]
--> (''[[GameplayAndStoryIntegration if he wins via]] CurbstompBattle'') You ''were'' recording that, weren't you, player? No? Eheheh... [[FelonyMisdemeanor WHAT DO YOU MEAN YOU WEREN'T RECORDING THAT?!]]
** When he's KO-ed:
--> [[FamousLastWords YOU PRESSED THE WRONG BUTTOOOOOONNNNN!!!!!]]
** When he beats any Street Fighter character:
--> I get to be on the cover of the next ''Franchise/StreetFighter'' for this, right, Capcom? Right?
** He also tends [[MetaGuy to mock the nature of the other characters' series]], from the lack of a jump ability in the original ''VideoGame/BionicCommando'' to the [[NintendoHard sadistic difficulty]] of ''VideoGame/GhostsNGoblins''.
** His intro quote against Dante:
--> How did anyone ever enjoy these games without ''me'' in them?
** In his ending:
--> [[spoiler:I'd invite the player in front of the TV, but you got the Player Points for winning. That's all you need!]]
** And later in the ending:
--> [[spoiler:'''Reporter''': Police are looking to arrest Deadpool and [[TheFourthWallWillNotProtectYou his accomplice known only to the authorities as "Player".]]]]
** In the ''Ultimate'''s [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iP1XlPXMwVY opening movie]], he [[ImplausibleBoardingSkills surfs]] on Phoenix Wright's "Objection!" SpeechBubble!
** While his friend ComicBook/{{Cable}} didn't return for this game to the dismay of many fans, Deadpool did get a DLC "Cablepool" outfit in ''Ultimate''. When he dons it, he says:
--> "And you thought Cable wasn't in this game..."
* CallingYourAttacks:
--> {{SHORYUKEN}}!
--> KATANA-RAMA!
---> CHIMICHANGAS!!
--> IT'S CUTTIN' TIME! Laalaalalalalaa~
* CallingYourBathroomBreaks: When he tags out.
* CombatPragmatist: Pretty much all the fighters are this to a degree, but only he can level his opponents with the ''heads-up display''.
* CounterAttack: His Level 3 Hyper starts with him doing a SexyWalk (complete with [[HeartSymbol heart-shaped bubbles]] and [[BettyBoop "Boop boop bee doop!"]]), and if the opponent attacks him, he'll stun them before beating them with his lifebar and Hyper Combo gauge.
* DissonantSerenity: His "Cuttin' Time!" attack has him sing as he slices the opponent.
* EpicFail: When his health is low, using his teleport move can actually KO him, with the game cheering it with [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1CPIqVL3ZQ4 a Hyper Combo KO announcement]].
* EverythingsBetterWithSpinning: If his "Happy-Happy Trigger" hyper is done in midair, he'll spin while firing diagonally downward.
* ExploitingTheFourthWall: As expected of Deadpool, he can use 4th wall elements to attack - in form of his Level 3 Hyper and his taunt.
* ExplosiveOverclocking: In his ending, he throws a party to celebrate his victory over Galactus, and [[spoiler:accidentally ends up wiping Cleveland off the map because he attempted to add a Power Cosmic boost to the DJ booth.]]
* ExtremeOmnivore: He seems to think Shuma-Gorath looks like calamari.
* FightingClown: His fighting style is half regular attacks, and half fucking around.
* GangstaStyle: Overlaps with GunsAkimbo in one of his hypers, where he holds his guns this way before unloading several magazines' worth of bullets on them.
%%* {{Handguns}}
%%* HeroicComedicSociopath: Hero? Villain? Who cares! I kick ass right and left, and I absolutely LOVE IT!
%%* IaijutsuPractitioner: My Katana-Rama is a quick unsheathe-and-resheathe sword attack that fires off a short RazorWind.
* KatanasAreJustBetter: He dual-wields katanas in conjunction with his guns. He lampshades it in one of his win quotes:
%%--> Do I kill you with the sleek but impersonal firearm or go with the cool factor of a nice katana?
* LagCancel: He's unique in that unlike other teleporting characters, he can use his teleport to cancel his other specials. His limit is that said teleport will backfire and explode every third time.
%%* LargeHam
* [[MoneyDearBoy Money, Dear Girl]]: [[invoked]] In his win quote against Tron:
--> I've noticed you're filthy rich. Luckily for you, my services are available at a very high price.
* MoonwalkDance: Deadpool moonwalks whenever he walk backwards, as opposed to other characters.
%%* MoreDakka: [[SayingSoundEffectsOutLoud BANG! BANGBANGBANG! BANGBANGBANGBANG!]]
* NinjaProp: His health and super bars, in his Level 3 Hyper Combo.
* NoFourthWall: If the fourth wall ever existed with this guy, it's long been vaporized. The vast majority of his quotes directly adress the player or the fact he's in a video game. His level 3 Hyper Combo, appropriately named "4th-Wall Crisis", has him whack the enemy away ''with his health bar and Hyper Combo bar''.
* NoIndoorVoice: He doesn't recite his lines as much as he screams them.
* OwMyBodyPart: One of his damage quotes is "MY KIDNEYS!"
%%* PracticalTaunt: Hey, I didn't mean to taunt you, my lovely little yellow box just wants to talk with me! Sorry, but you get some minor damage!
%%** Ok, so I did mean to taunt you. After all, [[UpToEleven I can cancel into and out of attacks with it!]]
%%* PsychoForHire
%%* PsychopathicManchild
* RoleReprisal: From ''[[WesternAnimation/HulkVs Hulk vs. Wolverine]]'' and others.
%%* ScreamsLikeALittleGirl: Every now and then.
* SexyWalk: During his Level 3 Hyper. Attacking him while he does this launches the attack proper.
%%* ShamelessSelfPromoter
%%* ShootTheBullet: In my trailer video with Dante (who's pretty cool, but no patch on yours truly), we fired so many shots at each other that we ''were deflecting each other's bullets with our own ones.'' Oh yeah. We were freaking AWESOME. I loved being in that scene.
%%* SlideAttack
* TalkativeLoon:
** [[VideoGame/{{Okami}} Issun]] lampshades it in Ammy's victory quote against him:
--> '''Issun''': (''at the victory screen'') No more inappropriate pooper-scooper quips, I see.
** Comicbook/DoctorStrange also lampshades it.
--->'''Doctor Strange''': Now if only I had a spell that would shut you up.
** And so does [[VideoGame/{{Darkstalkers}} Hsien-Ko]]:
---> '''Hsien-Ko''': I am ''not'' talking to myself. I'm talking to my sister. What's ''your'' excuse?
* ThrowDownTheBomblet: The medium variant of his Ninja Gift.
--> Pineapple surprise!
%%* TrademarkFavoriteFood: "CHIMICHANGAS!!" And [[http://brokenteapot.deviantart.com/art/soryukey-s-MvC3-Team-B-200135467?offset=40 Dante thinks that his pizza can beat my lovely chimichangas.]]
* TrickBomb: His Level 3 Hyper Combo involves a [[BlindedByTheLight flashbang grenade]] to blind his opponent.
* TriggerHappy: To the point that he even has a special ''exactly named'' after this, and a hyper named "Happy-Happy Trigger".
%%* {{Troll}}: NO DUH!! I at least lay out a diss or two to like everyone! Good to be me, AIN'T IT!
* TeleportersAndTransporters: He can teleport, but [[TeleportSpam should he use it a bit too much]] -- [[RuleOfThree every third attempt, to be exact]] -- [[RuleOfFunny it'll backfire and explode]], just like in the comics.
--> BAMF!
%%--> Curses! Foiled again.
%%* TrashTalk
%%* TwitchyEye: When they got me to have a little awesome snapshot of me again for that improvement they call "Ultimate", they somehow got me doin' it! I was pretty sure I was going to wink instead! Curses.

%%* WrittenSoundEffect: They pop up whenever I health bar some poor sucker[[note]]The health bar makes a THWOKK! The special bar first does a BAAAM!, then when it's time to knock it outta the park, it goes SLAAAAMMMMM!!![[/note]]. What can I do? Those thingies love following me around!

[[folder:Doctor Doom]]
[[quoteright:246:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/246px-Dr_Doom_MvsC3-FTW_8051.PNG]]
-->To face Doom is to face one's end!
-->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/PaulDobson

Full name Victor von Doom, this EvilOverlord and MadScientist is the Fantastic Four's ArchEnemy, and one of Marvel's most famous villains.

He used to be an associate of Reed Richards (Mr. Fantastic), but when he helped Doom to open an interdimensional rift into hell to rescue the soul of his mother despite Richard's warnings, the portal blew up in Doom's face, scarring him. He [[DisproportionateRetribution blamed Richards for the whole accident]] and [[RoaringRampageOfRevenge swore revenge]], constructing an [[PoweredArmor advanced suit of armor]] that included [[CoolMask an iron mask]] to cover his scar, and became '''Doctor Doom''', then overthrew the previous ruler of Latveria and claimed it as his own. He repeatedly tries to TakeOverTheWorld as well, and with all of his knowledge and powers he could potentially pull it off, but the Fantastic Four always manage to stoop him.,

In this game, he strikes a BigBadDuumvirate with Albert Wesker to TakeOverTheWorld.

* AGodAmI: As he becomes [[spoiler:Cosmic Doom]], especially in his ending where [[spoiler:he successfully stole some of Galactus' Cosmic Power into his special armor.]]
** Also, these few quotes:
--> (''against [[PhysicalGod Amaterasu, Thor, or Shuma-Gorath]]'') It is Doom who should be worshiped!
--> (''upon [[DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu beating any of them]]'') Even gods fall before Doom's might!
* AntiAir: His Sphere Flame hyper goes straight up, multi-hitting the opponent. If it doesn't hit, the sphere explodes and multiple energy shots [[DeathFromAbove rain from above.]]
* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: The ruler of Latveria and a genius scientist with powerful technology.
* BadassArmFold: His IdleAnimation.
* BadassBoast: He has a few good ones:
---> I do as I choose, and I answer to no one!
---> Turn and run now, and I will mercifully pretend this never happened.
---> ''(against the X-Men)'' I'll make you wish you were facing Magneto!
* BadassBookworm: He's a powerful genius, and he loves to make sure everyone knows it.
* BadassCape: He's a badass supervillain, and has the cape to prove it.

* CallingYourAttacks:
--> PLASMA BEAM!
--> PHOTON SHOT!
--> MOLECULAR SHIELD!
--> SPHERE FLAME!
--> FOOT DIVE!
--> HIDDEN MISSILE!
--> HARD KICK!
--> PHOTON ARRAY!
* CoolChair: His throne appears in his intro, Level 3 hyper, and victory pose.
* CoolMask: It wouldn't be Doctor Doom without it. It has an angry expression to symbolize his wrath.
* DidYouJustScamCthulhu: Doom's ending has him [[spoiler:steal some of the Power Cosmic from Galactus]].
* DifficultButAwesome: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZIMP00W4Fjk According to Max in his]] [[AssistMe two-part tutorial on him]].
* DishingOutDirt: His Molecular Shield special.
* DivingKick: His "Foot Dive", which is ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin. He does this with both feet, by the way.
* ElectricTorture: His Level 3 hyper conjures up a cage that traps the opponent and electrocutes them, as he enters a SlouchOfVillainy to enjoy the show.
* EvilLaugh: He does this quite often.
%%* EvilSoundsDeep
* FantasticRacism: He doesn't think much of mutants, to say the least.
* TheFightingNarcissist: Best exemplified by this victory quote:
--> The applause shall continue for another hour. The first to stop clapping will be executed.
* {{Flight}}: He's capable of this for a short time thanks to his armor.
* FrickinLaserBeams: Either from his laser gun or from his hands. His Photon Array hyper takes it into BeamSpam territory.
* GroundPound: His LauncherMove.
* {{Hammerspace}}: He conjures up a lot of his weaponry from this, such as missiles.
* HomingProjectile: A variant - his Hidden Missiles will track the enemy's position while [[DeathFromAbove falling from above.]]
* InsufferableGenius: ''Holy crap is he ever''. He's a genius, and he loves to rub it in people's faces as often as humanly possible.
%%* InTheHood
* LargeHam: ''Oh brother''. He's very fond of delivering hamtastic lines in third person to exclaim how great he is and how much inferior to him his enemies are.
* LongRangeFighter: He's got just as many long-range projectiles as close-range attacks
* {{Magitek}}: He commands both magic and science, separately or together.
-->(''vs Doctor Strange''): Doom's mystic powers are more than a match for your own.
-->'''Doctor Strange''' (''winquote vs Doom''): You exist in two worlds, von Doom -- that of magic and that of science. You are master of neither.
%%* [[spoiler:MiniBoss: Galactus trapped me, gave me the Power Cosmic, and forced me to become his "herald". But that's only what he thinks -- in fact, he has fallen to my ''own'' trap. The result, I successfully keep some of the almighty Power Cosmic for my own, as seen in Doom's ending.]]
%%* MorallyAmbiguousDoctorate + DoomyDoomsOfDoom
* MyKungFuIsStrongerThanYours: More like My Technology Is Better Than Yours, in his intro quote against C. Viper:
--> (''To C. Viper'') You fight with primitive toys.
* NotBigEnoughForTheTwoOfUs: Exclaims this to Dormammu before a fight.
--> (''against [[DimensionLord Dormammu]]'') This dimension is not big enough for the both of us!

%%* ShockAndAwe

%%* SoundtrackDissonance: People think my soundtrack sounds "soothing".
* SpreadShot: His Photon Shot special and Photon Array hyper.

* TrashTalk: He's fond of doing this.
--> (''[[Comicbook/TheAvengers Iron Man or Captain America]]'') [[SquadNickname Earth's]] [[WesternAnimation/TheAvengersEarthsMightiestHeroes Mightiest Heroes?]] Bah!
--> (''to any of the X-Men, excluding Magneto'') I'll make you wish you were facing Magneto!

[[folder:Dormammu]]
[[quoteright:209:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/209px-Dormammu_MvsC3-FTW_9560.PNG]]
-->Who dares defy the Dread One?
-->'''Voiced by:''' Michael T. Weiss

A higher-dimensional energy being, and [[DimensionLord absolute god-tyrant of his own magical universe]], the "Dark Dimension". [[GodOfEvil 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 "[[UpToEleven 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.

* BadassArmFold: During his Dark Hole. He also does the arm fold when he floats.
* BadassLongcoat
* CallingYourAttacks:
--> POWER OF THE CREATOR!
--> POWER OF THE DESTRUCTOR!
--> METEOR SHOWER!
--> BURN TO CINDERS! CHAOTIC FLAME!
--> DARK DIMENSION! Welcome... To my realm...
* CardCarryingVillain
* DeathFromAbove: His meteor shower, which seems to be taken from Mephisto/Blackheart's Armageddon in the past games of the series.
* DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu: 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.
* DimensionLord[=/=]MultiversalConqueror
--> (''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, [[spoiler:he wants to conquer the Capcom world as well, aided by [[VideoGame/{{Darkstalkers}} Lord Raptor]], Wesker, Akuma, and [[VideoGame/GhostsNGoblins Red Arremer]].]]
* EldritchAbomination: 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?
* EvilLaugh: On occasion, when he summons his meteor shower.
* EvilSoundsDeep
* EvolvingAttack: 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).
* ExtremityExtremist: He only uses his hands for his attacks.
* {{Fireballs}}: His Stalking Flare hyper, which can slowly [[HomingProjectile home in on his opponent.]]
* FlamingSkulls: Felicia and Hulk also call him "Flame-head" when they tag out with him.
* {{Flight}}: He is capable of this, for a short time.
* GodOfEvil: He's a despot god who revels in the suffering of the people he governs.
* KamehameHadoken: His Chaotic Flame.
* LargeAndInCharge: Of his own dimension, no less.
* LargeHam: Typical for godlike villains.
* LongRangeFighter: His special moves and hypers are geared towards keeping his enemies at bay.
* MightyGlacier: a long-ranged version. While he moves slowly, his powerful zoning capabilities make sure approaching him is not a walk in the park.
* MiniBoss: One of several characters who can serve as Galactus' Herald.
* MonochromaticEyes: Simple shining orange eyes without pupils.
* PhysicalGod: of his own dimension.
* PillarOfLight: His Purification special.
* PlayingWithFire: Wields the Flames of the Faltine.
* PowerCreepPowerSeep: 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.
* PowerEchoes: His echoing voice is a sign of his power and otherworldliness.
* PowerGlows: His "Dark Spell: Creation" tints one of his hands blue and his "Dark Spell: Destruction" tints the other one red.
* RedBaron: The Dread Dormammu.
* RedHerring: Early trailers made it appear as if Dormammu was going to be the main villain and final boss.
* TheRival: Although he's Doctor Strange's oldest foe other than Baron Mordu, in ''Ultimate'' it becomes Ghost Rider.
-->''(Intro quote)'' Too long have you defied my influence, Blaze!
* SlouchOfVillainy: Like Doom, he greets his foes from his CoolChair.
* SpikesOfDoom: His "Dark Spell: Creation", if used 2 times and then you use Liberation, he can fire out spikes from the ground.
* SpikesOfVillainy
* SpiritualSuccessor: 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''.
* StuffBlowingUp: Using his Liberation after powering it up with "Dark Spell: Destruction" creates a screen-wide explosion.
* TeleportCloak
* ThisCannotBe: One of his K.O. quotes.
* TrashTalk: 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.
* UnrealisticBlackHole: His Dark Hole special.
* VictoryIsBoring: Oddly enough.
-->(''winquote vs. Doctor Strange'') Alas, the Dread Dormammu has defeated his greatest foe.
* YourSoulIsMine: His win quote against Ghost Rider:
--> Now your soul is mine, Blaze.

-->''[[HulkSpeak YOU MAKE HULK ANGRY!]] [[YouWouldntLikeMeWhenImAngry YOU NO LIKE HULK ANGRY]]!!!''
-->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/FredTatasciore

A genius scientist, [[ComicBook/TheIncredibleHulk 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.

* TheBerserker
--> '''Wolverine''': In our own ways, we're ''both'' monsters!
* {{Big Damn Hero|es}}: In the Episode 3 Trailer.
* CallingYourAttacks:
--> GAMMA WAVE!
--> GAMMA CRUSH!
--> GAMMA CHARGE!
--> GAMMA QUAKE!
--> GAMMA TSUNAMI!
* CharacterizationMarchesOn: After several games of using his [[GeniusBruiser Merged Hulk]] persona, he's back to his [[HulkSpeak classic]] Savage Hulk identity.
* DeathFromAbove: Gamma Crush. He [[InASingleBound jumps into space]] and essentially [[MeteorMove grabs a meteor]] to drop on his opponent.
* DishingOutDirt: He doesn't actually have the ability to conjure earth, but he can do it with his sheer power.
* DumbMuscle: Yet his bio gives him a high intelligence stat. Though that probably belongs to Bruce Banner, which is accurate.
--> '''Haggar''': Big muscles don't mean anything if you don't know how to use 'em, pal.
--> (''One of his winquotes'') Puny humans try and fight Hulk. [[TooDumbToLive And they say it's Hulk who's not smart!]]
* FirstNameBasis: Switch out him with She-Hulk, and he tags her in as "Jen". [[http://screwattack.com/videos/MvC3-Hulk-Funny-Sayings Averted with most of the other characters:]] Iron Man is "Metal Man", Felicia is "Cat Girl", Viewtiful Joe is "Funny Helmet Man", and Amaterasu is "Dog" (among others). And then, he still refers to most of the cast by their actual names like Spider-Man, Dante, and Chun-Li.
* GroundPound: In his Gamma Quake hyper.
* GutturalGrowler
* HeroicBuild: Exaggerated.
* HulkSpeak: He's the TropeNamer, after all. One funny thing to notice is that FredTatasciore uses it here, but not when voicing the same character in ''WesternAnimation/TheAvengersEarthsMightiestHeroes''.
* ImmuneToBullets: He mentions to Chris that all of his weapons do nothing against him.
* ImmuneToFlinching: His standing H is armored for 3 hits.
%%* IneffectualLoner
* LargeHam: Try to find a line in the game where he's not shouting. Justified because he's the Hulk; he's basically powered by UnstoppableRage.
* LikeBrotherAndSister: With his cousin Jen, aka She-Hulk.
* MegatonPunch: His ''Ultimate''-only move, Impact Punch, which wallbounces if {{charged|Attack}}.
* MightyGlacier: moves and atacks slowly, but hits very hard as you can expect
* TheNicknamer: As is typical of Savage Hulk, he's not too good with names.
* RoleReprisal: From ''VideoGame/TheIncredibleHulkUltimateDestruction'' and others.
* StormingTheCastle: In his ending, [[spoiler:he storms the ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil'' mansion along with Chris and beats the tar out of Nemesis.]]
* SuperRugPull: His Gamma Wave and its hyper variant Gamma Tsunami.
* TrashTalk
--> (''One of his winquotes'') Who's stronger than Hulk? No one! NO ONE!
--> (''One of his winquotes'') No one stops Hulk!
--> (''One of his winquotes'') Hulk smash! Hulk win! Hulk is strongest!
* UpToEleven: Invoked; he's strong already, but...
--> (''to Phoenix'') Hulk strong! Hulk wonder how strong Hulk get with Phoenix Force? Give Hulk Phoenix Force!
* WalkingShirtlessScene
* WolverinePublicity: He appears in all "''Marvel''"-titled Capcom ''Vs.'' games (including ''VideoGame/MarvelSuperHeroes'').
* WorthyOpponent[=/=]RivalsTeamUp:
** Chris. They fight in the Episode 1 trailer and, later, he pulls a BigDamnHeroes moment in Episode 3 to assist him, Arthur, and X-23 against Magneto and Wesker. In his ending, [[spoiler:he helps Chris to raid the Mansion and search for Wesker, beating Nemesis to a pulp along the way. ''Franchise/ResidentEvil'' never looked so easy]].

-->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/EricLoomis

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 IronMan, and has dedicated himself to protecting the peace since.

* AwesomenessByAnalysis
--> (''One of his winquotes'') Don't feel bad about it. My armor analyzed your weaknesses and calculated every possible attack.
* AvengersAssemble: He yells this when he is the first person picked on a team out of himself, Cap, Thor or Hawkeye.
* BadassBookworm: The man's the CEO of a weapons development company.
* BadassMustache: Not that you can actually ''see'' it under his helmet.
* {{BFG}}:
--> ''[[{{Hammerspace}} Here's the big one!]] [[WaveMotionGun PROTON CANNON!]]''
* CaptainPatriotic: His new DLC costume would ''seem'' to make him into this, but it's actually [[ComicBook/DarkAvengers Norman Osborn's Iron Patriot]] armor.
* CallingYourAttacks:
--> UNIBEAM!
--> REPULSOR BLAST!
--> SMART BOMB!
--> Target acquired! PROTON CANNON!
--> Unlocking Power Inhibitor! IRON AVENGER!
* ChestBlaster: As always, the Unibeam. Iron Avenger (his Level 3 hyper) is [[UpToEleven an even stronger version]] that deals a good ''50 hits of damage''.
* ChivalrousPervert[=/=]HandsomeLech: He hits on all the girls sans Amaterasu in his pre-fight and win quotes.
--> So, you doing anything after this?
--> Told you. A nice candlelight dinner would've been better.
** He also has a special win screen quote should he defeat Morrigan last:
---> I think we can sort out our differences over dinner. I'll have the best chefs flown in.
* DoubleJump
* FightingYourFriend: Against any of the other Avengers.
* FirstNameBasis: When he switches out with Captain America, he yells "Steve!". Also "Logan!" for Wolverine, [[RuleOfThree and]] "Clint!" for Hawkeye.
* {{Flight}}: He's capable of this for a short time.
* GlowingEyesOfDoom: In his Level 3 hyper.
* GroundShatteringLanding + ThreePointLanding: His intro pose. He also does the latter after his Iron Avenger hyper.
* {{Hammerspace}}: Proton Cannon, again. He appears to summon it out of cyberspace.
* HandBlast
* [[MyKungFuIsStrongerThanYours My Tech Is Better Than Yours]]
--> (''against M.O.D.O.K. or Doom''): Let's see who really has the better toys, shall we?

--> (''after beating Spencer'') Give me a call if you want an upgrade, son.
--> (''intro vs. Nova'') Nova Force power vs. Stark Tech, huh? Bring it, flyboy!
* OhCrap: When fighting The Hulk, he really wishes he had come decked out in the Hulkbuster Armor.
* PowerEchoes: He gets a bit of this, mostly due to robotic modulation for his voice while suited-up.
* PoweredArmor: The Poster Boy of this trope.
* RoleReprisal: From the ''Film/{{Iron Man 2}}'' [[LicensedGame tie-in game]] and ''WesternAnimation/TheAvengersEarthsMightiestHeroes''.
* ShoulderCannon
* SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rNNQBAj10n4 His theme]] is a remix of War Machine's from ''[=MvC=]'', which is at the same time a remix of Tony's theme from ''Marvel Super Heroes'', making it ''a rearrangement of a rearrangement''. This dates back to the first ''Marvel vs. Capcom'', where Rhodey took Tony's place due to legal issues (in ''[=MvC2=]'', the two underwent DivergentCharacterEvolution, and Tony's a one-man show again in ''3'').
* TrashTalk:
--> (''One of his winquotes'') A shame to waste the good armor on such an easy fight.
--> (''One of his winquotes'') You put up a good fight, but I had the superior tech, skills, and experience.
-->(''after beating Hulk'') What was that about 'Hulk Smash,' again?
* WolverinePublicity: He appears in all "''Marvel''"-titled Capcom games (including ''VideoGame/MarvelSuperHeroes'') sans ''VideoGame/MarvelSuperHeroesVsStreetFighter'' and ''[[VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcomClashOfTheSuperheroes MvC1]]'' due to legal issues (see "SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute" above).

--> Learn now... why they call me the "Master of Magnetism"!
-->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/TomKane

With almost complete control of magnetism, [[ComicBook/{{Magneto}} 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.

* AscendedMeme: One of his alternate colors is the one from the MAHVEL BAYBEE video.
* AntiVillain: He only wants what's best for mutantkind.
* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: The Island of Genosha says hi.
* BadassGrandpa
* BadassCape
* BattleAura: Apparently the power of magnetism lets you glow with purple electricity.
** In the sprite-based installments of the series, Magneto had a passive aura in his hands during his standing animation. This was later ''patched'' into later versions of ''Marvel vs. Capcom 3'' for RuleOfCool.
* CallingYourAttacks:
--> DISRUPTOR!
--> HYPER GRAV!
--> FORCE FIELD!
--> ATTRACTION!
--> MAGNETIC BLAST!
--> You have lost! MAGNETIC TEMPEST!
--> MAGNETIC SHOCKWAVE!
--> GRAVITY SQUEEZE! You are defeated!
* CoolHelmet
* CounterAttack: His Force Field.
* DifficultButAwesome: Much like in ''[=MvC2=]'', he still has his hard-to-execute loop combos.
* EvilLaugh: One of his win quotes and Delayed Hyper Combo quotes.
* FirstNameBasis: 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, including ''Nation X''.
* {{Flight}}: He's capable of this for a short time.
* GlassCannon: 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=]''.
* GroundPound: In his Magnetic Shockwave hyper.
* GravityIsPurple: Magneto's elemental attacks and specials are purple colored, and are far more focused on his gravitational abilities than his signature magnet powers.
* GravityMaster: First seen with his Hyper Grav special and Gravity Squeeze hyper. In ''Ultimate'', he gains the ability to further attract and repel his opponents.
* HumansAreBastards: Or at least what he thinks.
* InsistentTerminology: A variant; he references the Marvel Universe's definition of mutants [[note]]Mutants have their powers/genetic abnormalities from birth, mutates -- such as Spider-Man and Deadpool -- gain their powers from other sources but were born as normal humans; Wesker falls under the latter category.[[/note]].
--> (''to Wesker'') Mutants are born, not created.
* LongRangeFighter: Downplayed in that, while many of his specials are ranged attacks, he's often used to attack up close.
* OnlySaneMan: The only one out of the fighters who recognizes and prepares to battle Galactus in the ''Ultimate'' intro movie.
* PowerFloats: Instead of walking, he floats.
* PragmaticVillainy: [[spoiler:His ending has him opt for using Galactus' worldship as a safe home for mutants rather than conquering Earth.]]
* RedBaron: Magneto, the Master of Magnetism.
* RoleReprisal: From ''WesternAnimation/WolverineAndTheXMen''.
* SelectiveMagnetism
* SlideAttack
* SocialDarwinist
* ThinkHappyThoughts: He needs to learn to do this, according to Morrigan (when she wins) at least.
* VillainousRescue: In the Episode 3 Trailer. Fan speculation has him as either a DefectorFromDecadence or an AntiVillain playing for his own side.
* VisionaryVillain
--> (''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.
* WeCanRuleTogether
--> (''One of his winquotes'') I had thought to recruit you for my Brotherhood. Your performance has caused me to reconsider the offer.
* WolverinePublicity: He's only absent in ''VideoGame/MarvelSuperHeroesVsStreetFighter''.
* WorthyOpponent: Apparently sees Vergil as one.
-->(''winquote against Vergil''): Shame you're not a mutant. You'd make a good addition to my Brotherhood.
* YouRemindMeOfX
--> (''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.
* YouWillNotEvadeMe: 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.

--> If you think I've evolved beyond the joys of murder, you'd be wrong!
-->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/WallyWingert

Formerly just a regular human, George Tarleton was forced to become a living human experiment and was subsequently turned into ComicBook/{{MODOK}} (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.

M.O.D.O.K. has everything you could want in a keepaway-focused character: a barrier wall, lasers, flight in place of a jump, attacks that knock opponents away from him, floating bombs, and special cube traps that let him use enhanced versions of each.

* AmbidextrousSprite: Despite using 3D models for the game, his flying chair.
* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: Regardless of his [[ButtMonkey treatment]] here, one must remember that M.O.D.O.K. is the leader of A.I.M.
* AwesomenessByAnalysis:
--> By my calculations, you'll be dead within seconds!
* AxCrazy
* BadassBoast: A surprising one, delivered to ''Nemesis'' of all people.
--> I've had experiments like you, I call them failures.
* BeehiveBarrier: Whenever he blocks, these appear.
* ButtMonkey: As the Episode 3 trailer shows, he gets his cables cut by X-23's claws, then smacked into oblivion by the Hulk.
* CallingYourAttacks:
--> 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?
* CombatTentacles: The mechanical version, used for his [[ShockAndAwe Killer Illumination]] hyper.
* CoolChair: He ''is'' the chair.
* {{Crossdresser}}: He has an alternate costume that makes him appear as M.O.D.A.M, a make-up wearing female counterpart. The costume still uses his voice, though.
* DeflectorShields: He can produce one.
* DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu
--> (''to Amaterasu, Thor, or Shuma-Gorath'') Now I can add killing a god to my resume.
* DifficultButAwesome: 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.
* DudeLooksLikeALady: Sort of. One of his alternate costumes is patterned after his female counterpart, M.O.D.A.M. [[ViewerGenderConfusion but still looks and sounds like M.O.D.O.K.]] [[{{Gonk}} and is every bit as ugly]].
* EvilLaugh: Let's just say he does this many times.
** LaughingMad: One of his winquotes.
* EvilTastesGood: He's got a sweet tooth for murder, it would seem.
--> Death is like candy!
* EvilutionaryBiologist
* {{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.
* FauxAffablyEvil: He's genuinely evil and likes to kill, but he has a number of moments that make him look hilarious. He can also be AxCrazy or LaughablyEvil, sometimes both at the same time.
* ForScience:
-->(''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.
* HomingProjectile: 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 his opponent.
* IllKillYou
--> ''(intro vs. Rocket Raccoon'') You're cute. Time to die!
* MagikarpPower: How his Analyze Cubes work. Each time one successfully hits, his forehead gem begins to [[PowerGlows glow]] and his specials and hypers do more damage and/or gain new properties (his triangular energy barrier grows in size and his smart bombs [[InterfaceScrew 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.
* MirrorMatch: Lampshaded.
--> (''to himself'') Never again will I forget to lobotomize one of my clones!
* MonochromaticEyes
* PowerCrystal: On his head.
* RedEyesTakeWarning: In one of his alternate color schemes.
* TheRival: 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.
* RoleReprisal: From ''WesternAnimation/TheAvengersEarthsMightiestHeroes''.
* SoLongSuckers: Every time he tags out.
--> This isn't over!
* {{Troll}}: According to fans, at least, he could give '''''[[VideoGame/{{BlazBlue}} Hazama]]''''' a run for his money.
** [[AscendedMeme It even tends to show up in some of his quotes]]:
-->'''M.O.D.O.K. (before fighting Nemesis T-Type):''' I've had experiments like you. I call them failures!

--> You're about to deal with forces you can't possibly comprehend.
-->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/JenniferHale

Telepath [[ComicBook/XMen 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.

While Phoenix's health [[GlassCannon is about as strong]] [[FragileSpeedster as a wet paper bag]], she has more than enough power to stay alive, with strong damage and traps. And if she ''does'' get knocked out, having a full Hyper Meter gauge lets her revive as [[SuperMode Dark Phoenix]], with improved moves.

* AnimalMotifs: [[ThePhoenix Take a guess]].
* AscendedExtra: As Jean Grey, she appeared in several endings in the past games of the series, notably, ''VideoGame/XMenChildrenOfTheAtom''.
* BattleAura
* CallingYourAttacks:
--> TELEPORT!
--> HEALING FIELD!
--> I'm at full power! PHOENIX INFERNO!
* DifficultButAwesome: Her health is so low that some level 3 hypers or just a particularly good combo can one-hit kill her. Her damage output, mix-ups, hypers and special abilities mean that even getting in that combo can be pretty difficult.
* [[spoiler:FaceHeelTurn: During her ending, Dark Phoenix completely takes over, meaning that the Marvel and Capcom heroes are forced to fight her.]]
* FieryRedhead: Emphasis on "fiery".
* FightingYourFriend: Against any of her fellow X-Men.
* {{Fireballs}}: Her TK Shot special.
* FirstNameBasis: She calls her X-Men buds (Logan/Wolverine, Laura/X-23, Ororo/Storm, and Erik/Magneto) by name.
* FlashStep
* {{Flight}}: She's capable of this, for a short time.
* FragileSpeedster: She is this trope in both forms. She's still a good character, but until she goes Dark, she has to rely on her ridiculously good mobility and multiple angles of attack, because her health is sub-par.
* GlassCannon: Strong damage, but poor health.
* HealThyself: Her Healing Field hyper.
* HomingProjectile: The strong version of her TK Shot homes in on opponent.
* LongRangeFighter: Not so much for regular Phoenix, but definitely so for Dark Phoenix. Her teleports also help.
* NamesTheSame: [[invoked]] With [[Franchise/AceAttorney Phoenix Wright]] in ''Ultimate''. This is of course pointed out and lampshaded.
* NotSoDifferent
--> (''To Akuma'') We're more alike than I'd like to admit.
* PersonOfMassDestruction
* PhysicalGod
* PlayingWithFire
--> '''Thor''': Ye be a fiery woman with spirit to match the bravest Asgardian! Alas, your skills fell short.
* PowerGivesYouWings: Her Level 1 Phoenix Inferno.
* RoleReprisal: From ''WesternAnimation/WolverineAndTheXMen''.
* SayMyName: Her death quote. She cries out for Cyclops.
--> ''Phoenix'': Scott...
* ScarfOfAsskicking
* SlideAttack
* [[spoiler:SplitPersonalityTakeover: Her ending.]]
* SuperpoweredEvilSide: [[SuperMode Dark Phoenix]] rises!
--> '''Vergil''': There's a darker power that lies dormant in you. Why do you hesitate to embrace it?
** AnimalBattleAura
** BackFromTheDead: This mode requires her to be [=KOed=] while having 5 hyper bars.
** BeamSpam: Every normal attack that Dark Phoenix performs launches several wisps of fire at the opponent. Couple this with her other projectiles and... [[BulletHell You know the result]].
** DeathActivatedSuperpower: 100% Meter + 0% Health =

-->'''Sentinel''': [[AC:Threaten target!]] / [[AC:Undermine target's confidence!]]
* GivingSomeoneThePointerFinger: During its Sentinel Force (and its hyper variant).
* {{Hammerspace}}: Where do its Sentinel Forces come from? Well, besides Master Mold, obviously.
* HumongousMecha: [[NotDrawnToScale Smaller than (most of) its comic counterparts]] (especially with his full-sized brothers in the background in the ComicBook/DaysOfFuturePast stage), but still by far the second largest playable character, after ComicBook/{{Galactus}}. His leg even clips through other character models when he calls them in for an assist.
* HunterOfMonsters: A mutant-hunter.
--> (''against any of the X-Men, [[MyFriendsAndZoidberg Magneto, and Deadpool]]'') [[AC:Mutant entity detected.]]
-->'''Magneto''': Mutant-hunting abomination!
--> (''after beating any of them'') [[AC:Mutant entity eliminated. Operation successful.]]
--> '''Spencer''': Mutant genocide? Yet another failure of human engineering. Don't worry, it's not your fault, I understand.
* InvulnerableAttack: Its normal attack can disperse projectiles.
** Even more fittingly, Hard Drive is ''completely'' invulnerable throughout its duration. If two Sentinels do Hard Drive one after another, the one that did it ''second'' lands a hit or two only at the end.
* KillerRobot
* LagCancel: It can cancel its dash with crouching and then dashing again, making it quicker to approach opponents.
* LightningBruiser: Even after having its [[SuperToughness ample supply of health]] reduced in a patch, Sentinel still hits quite hard and can more than keep up with characters thanks to the aforementioned LagCancel. Most of his attacks are fairly slow, however.
* MachineMonotone: Being a robot, it speaks like this.
* {{Nerf}}: Received a severe health nerf (from 1.3 million to around 910k) with the March 22nd patch. He now only marginally outdoes Spider-Man, Dante, and several other {{Glass Cannon}}s and {{Fragile Speedster}}s. ''Ultimate'' brings him down even further to 900000.
** Even with his downgrades, many early tier lists have him placed at the top or close to it.
* OhCrap
--> (''to [[EldritchAbomination Shuma-Gorath]] and Akuma'') [[AC:Unknown entity detected. Proceeding with extreme caution.]]
* OminousLatinChanting: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YxD0dWMbO5I Its theme.]]
* PowerEchoes: Well, it's a robot.
* RedEyesTakeWarning: It has shining red robot eyes and is certainly a dangerous KillerRobot.
* RoboSpeak
* RocketPunch: One of its specials.
* RoleReprisal: From ''WesternAnimation/WolverineAndTheXMen''.
* SecretCharacter: Requires 4000 Player Points to be unlocked.
* ShockAndAwe
* StrongFleshWeakSteel: See {{Nerf}}.
* SphereOfDestruction: Its Plasma Storm hyper.
* TropeName: How its taunts work.
* ZergRush: Its Sentinel Force special. It also has a hyper counterpart.
* ZerothLawRebellion: Its ending. [[spoiler:Just like [[VideoGame/XMenChildrenOfTheAtom 17 years ago]].]]
** Even less happily in Ultimate, [[spoiler:with the Master Mold acquiring Galactus' worldship, it now has the ability to eradicate its targets in other planets and dimensions. The Sentinels themselves even take on an appearance more similar to Galactus himself.]]

Bruce Banner's (Hulk) cousin. After being gravely injured, [[ComicBook/SheHulk 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.

* AmazingTechnicolorPopulation
* AmazonianBeauty
--> (''One of her winquotes'') You just got pulverized by 700 pounds of lean, green muscle, sweetie.
* AscendedExtra: She was one of the frozen warriors in ''VideoGame/MarvelSuperHeroes''.
* AssKicksYou: One her Hyper Combos ends with an earth-shaking butt-drop onto the opponent.
* BoisterousBruiser
* BoobsOfSteel: Has a considerable rack and is the most physically-oriented female fighter in this game. She's also the female fighter with most health (at 1,150K), barring Tron's 1,200K (who brings a MiniMecha with her).
* BreakingTheFourthWall: As of Ultimate, she'll remind Deadpool that she's done this, too.
--> I can break the fourth wall too, ya know?
** Her win-screen quote after beating Deadpool:
--> You know, [[MythologyGag if this game were made in 1991,]] I'd be the one whacking ''you'' with a health bar.
** Ultimate also gave her a new victory quote against Deadpool:
--> If there's ever an [=MvC4=], I'll destroy you there too, Wade.
* CallingYourAttacks:
--> DROPKICK!
* CarFu: Her Level 3 Hyper, Road Rage (aka Sunday Driver), involves flattening her opponent with a nearby car. Sometimes she'll just let the car go straight, crashing into the enemy as it goes.
** EveryCarIsAPinto
* CompositeCharacter: Sort of. Every She-Hulk costume in the game is Jennifer Walters in personality, but only a few actually represent what she looks like. For the other costumes, Capcom chose Lyra (Hulk's daughter, wearing a Frightful Four uniform), [[ComicBook/UltimateMarvel Ultimate]] She-Hulk (Betty Ross), and Red She-Hulk (Betty Ross of the core universe).
* DistaffCounterpart: To Hulk, obviously.
* DoesNotKnowHerOwnStrength: Absolutely ''wrecks'' the judge's bench when given her own [[CourtroomAntics court show]], scaring the crap out of [[Franchise/AceAttorney Phoenix Wright and Miles Edgeworth]].
* DrivesLikeCrazy: Well, perhaps not She-Hulk herself. In her intro, she throws away a car that is covered in tickets. Oh, and there's a "no parking" sign stuck to it too.
* FingerlessGloves
* FirstNameBasis: When switched-out, she calls Hulk as "Bruce". Also "Tony" for Iron Man.
* FunPersonified
* GeniusBruiser: She's a very successful lawyer in her civilian identity, making [[Franchise/AceAttorney Phoenix Wright]] her [[WorthyOpponent main rival]] in ''Ultimate''.
* GoodBadGirl
* HairFlip: Does one after her new lamppost swing special in ''Ultimate''.
* {{Hammerspace}}: Her Level 3 special causes a speeding car to appear regardless of arena, which includes [[Franchise/ResidentEvil an underground Tyrant lab]], [[{{Spider-Man}} a rising platform in New York]], the [[AirborneAircraftCarrier SHIELD Helicarrier]], [[VideoGame/GhostsNGoblins a raft floating in a river of lava]], and [[ComicBook/TheMightyThor Asgard]].
* HelloAttorney
* ImprobableWeaponUser: A lamp post in ''Ultimate''.
* LastNameBasis: When switching out, Phoenix Wright calls her "Ms. Walters".
* LeotardOfPower
* LightningBruiser: Like Hulk, she hits hard. Unlike him, she has a special move to get a running start.
* LikeBrotherAndSister: With the Hulk.
* MartialPacifist
* MediumAwareness: She also realizes that she's in a video game, but leaves the [[BreakingTheFourthWall fourth wall-breaking quips]] and [[NonSequitur non-sequiturs]] to Deadpool.
* MoreDeadlyThanTheMale
--> (''To Hulk, who no like fighting girls'') You know what they say: The female is the deadlier of the species.
--> '''Hulk''' (''when he wins against her''): Girl Hulk stronger than Hulk thought.
* NotDrawnToScale: In a group render, they have her basically being the same height as Trish, Chun-Li, Jill Valentine, and Crimson Viper.
* NotSoDifferent
--> (''to Chun-Li'') You and I have more in common than you think. Maybe once you wake up, we can talk about it.
* OneWomanWail: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eKdxCFxKkYM Her theme.]]
* ShesGotLegs
* SlideAttack: That got {{Nerf}}ed in Ultimate.
* StatuesqueStunner: She isn't just the tallest of the ladies, she's one of the tallest characters in the game, ''period''.
* {{Stripperific}}
* WrestlerInAllOfUs: Compared to her cousin, she's more of a grappler than a bruiser. She also uses a clothesline, elbow drop, dropkick, and Senton Bomb.
* WrittenSoundEffect: Many of her special attacks produce them.
** Heavy Strike: CRAAACK!
** Runner's Start > Chariot > Clothesline: KRACK!
** Runner's Start > Catapult > Shooting Star: WHAM!
** Runner's Start > Catapult > Flying Drop Kick: WHUNK!

[[folder:Shuma-Gorath]]
[[quoteright:251:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/251px-Shuma-Gorath_MvsC3-FTW_5798.PNG]]
--> Embrace... CHAOS!
--> '''Voiced by''': Creator/PaulDobson

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.

* [[spoiler:AccidentalHero: In his ending.]]
* AffablyEvil: 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 [[MultiversalConqueror 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.
* AscendedExtra: 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.
* [[BadassArmFold Badass Tentacle Fold]]
* BadassBoast:
--> 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!
* BreakingTheFourthWall: His victory pose involves him running at the camera and jumping towards it, possibly strangling it with his tentacles.
* CallingYourAttacks:
--> MYSTIC STARE!
--> MYSTIC SMASH!
--> DEVITALIZATION!
--> HYPER MYSTIC RAY!
--> HYPER MYSTIC SMASH!
--> WELCOME TO THE CHAOS DIMENSION!
* CatchPhrase: His phrase "Waste of flesh" has stuck with him in each of the games he has been in.
* CombatTentacles: WordOfGod 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!
* ComicallySerious: one of his lines against Deadpool.
--> ''I do not appreciate being called calamari, and what is this "dipping sauce" you keep referring to?''
* DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu: 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.
* DownloadableContent: Initially, for the PS3 version. This caused him and fellow DLC character Jill Valentine to be TemporaryOnlineContent when Capcom's license with Marvel expired, but since then a PS4 port was released and announced with both DLC characters included by default, averting both tropes.
%%* EldritchAbomination
* EvilLaugh: Sometimes he introduces himself before a match with cackling laughter.
* EvilTastesGood: Since we're pretty much talking about Cthulhu, this might not be an overstatement.
--> ''I can taste your fear! And it's delicious!''
* ExtraEyes: For his Quoggoth costume.
* EyeBeam: As a regular attack, special move, and hyper.
* FantasticRacism: He seemingly despises Vergil for being a half-demon.
* GodOfEvil: He and Dormammu both fit this trope well, though unlike Dormammu, Shuma actually is a god.
* HeelFaceTurn: Shuma's ending involves him [[spoiler:becoming the unlikely savior of the Earth, even though he intended to conquer it. He eventually accepts this and gets his own game show.]]
* IllKillYou
--> (''Intro vs. Vergil'') I'll eviscerate you, half-breed!
%%* LargeHam
* MirrorMatch: Shuma doesn't seem to mind fighting himself. In fact, [[DistractedByMyOwnSexy he rather likes it.]]
-->'''Shuma-Gorath''': What a handsome devil you are!
** And when he beats himself:
--> An eye for an eye.
* MultiversalConqueror: 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. [[EvilLaugh Ha ha ha ha]]!
* NotDrawnToScale: 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}}
* OneShotCharacter: 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.
* PhysicalGod
* PowerEchoes
* PowerCreepPowerSeep: 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.
* PowerGlows: If you look carefully, there's a red glow underneath Shuma's body when he's on the ground.
* RedBaron: The Lord of Chaos.
* SmugSuper: 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 BadassArmFold or his [[FanNickname 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.
* TrashTalk
--> (''victory vs. Vergil'') You're an embarrassment to demons everywhere.
* UnskilledButStrong: 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 its maximum as well.
* WalkingWasteland: Wherever he steps, a small red aura is left behind.
* WolverinePublicity: Factoring out ''VideoGame/XMenChildrenOfTheAtom'' and ''VideoGame/XMenVsStreetFighter'', Shuma's only missed out on ''[[VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcomClashOfTheSuperheroes Marvel vs. Capcom]]'' so far.
* VillainousCrush: 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.''
* YouWillBeAssimilated: From his victory quote:
--> Everything in this world will be devoured by chaos and then become a part of me!

--> [[ThemeTuneCameo Look out, here comes the Spider-Man!]]
-->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/JoshKeaton

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 Franchise/SpiderMan. 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."

* AllWebbedUp
* ApologeticAttacker: Upon defeating Viewtiful Joe.
--> Sorry, little guy. Beating you up is like stepping on a kitten.
* BadassBookworm
* BitingTheHandHumor: InUniverse: 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.
* BuildingSwing: His Web Swing.
* CallingYourAttacks:
--> WEB BALL!
--> SPIDER STING!
--> WEB SWING!
--> WEB THROW!
--> ULTIMATE! WEB! THROW!
--> Crawler! ASSAULT!
--> Get ready! MAXIMUM SPIDER!
* ComesGreatResponsibility: He's the TropeNamer, 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.
* CutenessProximity: Towards ViewtifulJoe.
** Then again, he was probably entering his SarcasmMode to be condescending.
* DivingKick: His Maximum Spider ends with this.
* DownerEnding: His ending, PlayedForLaughs. [[spoiler: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.]]
* FirstNameBasis: Calls Wesker "Albert".
%%* FragileSpeedster
* FunPersonified: He's energetic most of the time, and likes moving around.
* GivingSomeoneThePointerFinger: Before his Crawler Assault hyper.
* MirrorMatch: Lampshaded.
--> (''to himself'') Was that [[ComicBook/TheCloneSaga a clone me]] or [[ComicBook/SecretInvasion a Skrull me]] I just beat? I can never tell sometimes.
* NamesTheSame: [[invoked]] 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.
* TheNicknamer: His special tag names for them: "Maggie!" - "Wolvie!" - "Shellhead!" (Iron Man) - "Doomsy!" - "Hulkster!" - "Tasky!" - "[[ComicStrip/DennisTheMenaceUS Mr. Wilson!]]" (Deadpool, albeit rarely)
* RapidFireFisticuffs: His Crawler Assault hyper.
* TheRival: Wesker and Taskmaster. There's even an achievement for winning an online match for beating the latter with Spidey (or the other way around).
** As of ''Ultimate'', Strider Hiryu seems to rival him once more, similar to the first Marvel vs. Capcom.
* RoleReprisal: From ''WesternAnimation/TheSpectacularSpiderMan''.
* {{Shoryuken}}: His Spider Sting. Unique in that he can follow up a Heavy version of it with a punch that knocks his opponent right back down to Earth.
* {{Shotoclone}}
* TrashTalk: 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 pretty much does this even when not fighting.
* WolverinePublicity: He appears in all "''Marvel''"-titled Capcom games (including ''VideoGame/MarvelSuperHeroes'').
* YouFightLikeACow: '''The''' staple for the character.
--> Dude, you suck!
--> Looooooser!
--> (''intro against Ryu'') You've got a black belt in ''stupid'' if you think you can beat me!
--> (''after winning'') I must admit, beating the living snot out of you was a great honor.
* YouRemindMeOfX
--> ''(winquote vs. Firebrand'') You know, you sort of look like the guy who [[Comicbook/OneMoreDay ruined my marriage]]. ([[Comicbook/GhostRider Mephisto]])
* YouWillNotEvadeMe: He can use his web strings to pull enemies in.

-->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/SusanDalian

Though she survived the ordeal, [[ComicBook/{{Storm}} 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 Franchise/XMen.

* ApologeticAttacker
--> (''to Phoenix'') I hated to have to do that to you, Jean. You are like a sister to me.
--> (''to Chris'') Rarely have I met a man with such a [[PillarsOfMoralCharacter strong moral compass]]. I regret that we had to meet in combat.
* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: Once the co-leader of the X-Men, she's now the queen of [[ComicBook/BlackPanther Wakanda]].

* LeotardOfPower
* LongRangeFighter: Downplayed; same case as Magneto.
* MamaBear
* MartialPacifist: Unfortunately, this being a FightingGame, she qualifies also for ReluctantWarrior.

-->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/CharlieAdler

Kl'rt is a genetically-engineered super soldier created by the Skrulls to defeat the ComicBook/FantasticFour, 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.

* AxCrazy
* [[BewareTheSuperman Beware The Super-Skrull]]
* BigNo: His death cry.
* {{Bowdlerise}}: His "He loves you!" line from Vanilla being removed in Ultimate supposedly due to religious controversy.
** OutOfCharacterMoment: The real reason it was removed, as the line is in reference to the secret invasion storyline, a religiously motivated invasion Super Skrull did not support (he is not overflowing with love for the Earth creatures).
* BreakingTheFourthWall: His winpose is stomping on the camera, [[ScreenTap causing the lens to shatter.]]

* ChronicBackstabbingDisorder
* DeathFromAbove + FlashStep: His Meteor Smash special involves him teleporting at certain range and then smashing his opponent from above with his rocky fist.
* EverythingsBetterWithSpinning: His Skrull Torch hyper involves him being WreathedInFlames and then spinning wildly forward like a torpedo, which is somewhat similar to [[VideoGame/StreetFighterII M. Bison]]'s Psycho Crusher (especially its super variant). However, Skrull Torch can actually be controlled.
* DoomedHometown: Tarnax IV, destroyed by Galactus. Making his final battle [[ItsPersonal personal]].

Tony Masters learned many moves by watching videos of heroes in action, and used his photographic reflexes to copy them and make them his own. Considering himself a businessman, ComicBook/{{Taskmaster}} opened a mercenary school for training criminals in the fighting arts.

** Brings Hawkeye's famed archery skills in tow.
** BuildingSwing: He perfectly duplicates Spider-Man's Web Swing.
** CoolSword: Courtesy of Black Knight.
** LuckilyMyShieldWillProtectMe: "Shield skills!" and "Just like Cap's!" In particular, his straight shield attack [[InvulnerableAttack can go through projectiles.]]

* CombatPragmatist: Doesn't have any scruples with shooting an opponent with his handgun when all else fails.
* CoolMask
* CounterAttack: As both a special (the heavy version acts more like a AttackReflector) and a hyper.
* CutLexLuthorACheck: [[spoiler:In his ending, he expands his training program, puts out a series of exercise tapes, and a line of health food products.]]
* DeathFromAbove: He can aim his shot upward, and then multiple arrows will rain from above. He can also aim his hyper version of the special upward, and it becomes a literal RainOfArrows. In midair, he can also aim his special and hyper versions downward.
* HeelFaceRevolvingDoor
* HeroicBuild
* InTheHood
* JackOfAllStats
* MalevolentMaskedMan
* MegaManning: This is Taskmaster's gimmick, just like in the comics. In game, he has Spider-Man's Web Swing and Captain America's Charging Star.
* MoneyDearBoy: {{Invoked|Trope}}
* MoreDakka: One of his hypers.
* TheMusketeer: He has both melee and ranged attack prowess with his weapons.
* OddOneOut: Of all the characters in the game that use an alias, only C Viper's and Taskmaster's (Anthony Masters) aren't used in the dialogue.
* OnlyInItForTheMoney: His entire motivation. Even referenced in his ending.
--> (''to [[BloodKnight Ryu, Akuma]], or Tron'') I do this for the cash, not for the thrills.
* PunchClockVillain: He does villainous things just because he's paid enough. In battle, he's quite friendly and talkative to the heroes.
* SecretCharacter: Requires 8000 Player Points to unlock.
* SoundtrackDissonance: He has [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PHZWZ7RzE-U a pretty heroic sounding theme]], despite the fact that he's a [[PunchClockVillain mostly]] villainous mercenary.
* SwordPointing: Does this in his winning pose, aimed [[BreakingTheFourthWall at the camera]].
* TwinkleSmile: Done during said winning pose.
* UnexpectedCharacter: Granted he was teased back when Zero was revealed when the creators claimed they initially planned to make Zero's in-game rival an unannounced mercenary character with similar abilities. Several fans guessed Anthony as he is another swordsman with PowerCopying.
* WorthyOpponent: The only person he really hates is Deadpool, and that's only because he's [[CloudCuckoolander so erratic]] that Taskmaster can't copy his style.

[[ComicBook/TheMightyThor Thor]] is the son of Odin, ruler of Asgard, the home of the gods. Known as the strongest warrior in Asgard, his prideful ways were reformed after spending time living as a human. Currently, he is a member of the Earth's mightiest heroes, the Avengers.

* {{Flight}}: He's capable of this, for a short time.
* FlyingBrick: Subverted for this game (see below).

* GivingSomeoneThePointerFinger[=/=][[SwordPointing Hammer Pointing]]: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gfwoLXEk9QI His command taunt]].

--> Behold, I am Thor, son of Odin, and defender of Asgard! If thou are foolish enough to challenge Thor, you will find Mjölnir powerful enough to ''BREAK YOUR SKULL!''"
* GroundPound: Done with his hammer in his Mighty Smash special and Mighty Thunder hyper.
* HeroicBuild
* LargeHam: So much that Haggar thinks he can make for a great pro wrestler.
* LetsFightLikeGentlemen
--> (''To Cap'') ''Because of my respect for thee, I shall end this quickly.''
* LetsYouAndHimFight: He believes that he's tricked by Loki when he encounters Hulk, Iron Man, or [[MirrorMatch himself]].

* ProudWarriorRaceGuy: A proud, fight-loving Asgardian man.
* RatedMForManly: And MIGHTY.
* RoleReprisal: From ''WesternAnimation/TheAvengersEarthsMightiestHeroes''.
* RousingSpeech: He literally has a power called [[LargeHam "Mighty Speech."]]
* ShockAndAwe: And he combines it with BlowYouAway for his Mighty Tornado hyper.
--> (''to Storm'') It is one thing to call the lightning. It is another to be its god.
* SlideAttack: His crouching H attack is one.
* SpinningPiledriver: His Mighty Hurricane.
* StabTheSky: In his Mighty Tornado hyper.
* ThemeNaming: All of his attacks have the word "Mighty" in them.
* WorthyOpponent: Aside from Amaterasu, there's also these:

--> [[CatchPhrase I'm the best there is at what I do.]]
-->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/SteveBlum

Beneath [[ComicBook/{{Wolverine}} 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.

* AudibleSharpness: You can hear sounds of metal scraping whenever he attacks with his claws.
%%* BadassBaritone
* BadassBoast: His quotes when against Ghost Rider:
--> (''start of line-up'') You really think your Hellfire's gonna scare the guy who beat the devil?
--> (''after winning'') I've been to Hell and back, bub. You don't stand a chance!
* BattleAura: During his Berserker Charge hyper.
* TheBerserker
* BladeSpam: His Berserker Barrage and its hyper variant, as well as Weapon X. As of Ultimate, he gains a new move named Berserker Rage.
* BloodKnight
* ButtonMashing: His throw, Berserker Barrage, and Tornado Claw can score more hits if the attack button is mashed.
* CallingYourAttacks:
--> BERSERKER BARRAGE!
--> TORNADO CLAW!
--> DRILL CLAW!
--> BERSERKER SLASH!
--> FATAL CLAW!
--> BERSERKER CHARGE!
--> WEAPON X!
* DivingKick: [[GameBreaker A rather]] [[TierInducedScrappy infamous one]], pre-''Ultimate'' anyway.
* FightingYourFriend: Against Phoenix:
--> It doesn't have to be like this!
* FirstNameBasis: Refers to X-23 by her first name, Laura, when switching out with her. Does the same for his fellow X-Men Phoenix (Jean) and Storm (Ororo), as well as Magneto (Erik).
* FlashStep: His Berserker Claw starts with this.
* GutturalGrowler
* HealingFactor
* HeroWithAnFInGood
* LightningBruiser: Subverted in that he only has decent health (900K).
* PrimalStance
* TheRival
--> (''to X-23'') No need to hold back, Laura.
--> (''to Hulk'') This time we ain't ending in a draw!
* RoleReprisal: From ''VideoGame/XMenLegends'' and others.
* {{Shoryuken}}: His Tornado Claw.
* ShutUpHannibal: When Magneto boasts about his magnetism powers, his response is basically this:
--> Sorry, Erik, you just ain't gonna win this.
* SuperMode: Berserker Charge.
* ToTheTuneOf: Wolverine's theme and the theme song of ''Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers''. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qF_Bd4J-xgw Compare.]]
* TrashTalk
--> (''Intro vs. Nova'') You're gonna need that bucket to carry around your severed head.
* WolverineClaws
* WolverinePublicity: He ''is'' the TropeNamer and it applies here as much as anywhere as Wolverine is the only Marvel representative to appear in ''every'' Capcom-produced Marvel fighting game, dating all the way back to ''VideoGame/XMenChildrenOfTheAtom''. He is essentially to the series what Ryu is to the Capcom cast (although he doesn't have a second version of himself in this game with a different moveset like he did in ''2'').
* WorthyOpponent: X-23.

[[quoteright:159:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/159px-X-23_MvsC3-FTW_8534.PNG]]
--> I'm the second best at what I do.
-->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/TaraStrong

Cloned from a damaged Wolverine gene sample, ComicBook/{{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 Franchise/XMen, with whom she now seeks to turn her life around.

* AudibleSharpness: Same as Wolverine.
* AwesomenessByAnalysis
--> Already identified seventeen ways to beat you.
* BareYourMidriff: She only wears a tank top that exposes her midriff for her upper body.
* TheBerserker: Downplayed; she only becomes one when in Trigger Scent (only seen in the comics). She's normally calculating and controlled during fights.
* BladeSpam: Her Weapon X Prime hyper where she does a lot of slashes with her claws.
%%* BloodKnight
* ChargedAttack: Her Neck Slice, Ankle Slice, and Decapitating Slice can be charged.
* DistaffCounterpart[=/=]OppositeSexClone: To Wolverine.
* DivingKick: Her Talon Attack special.
* FirstNameBasis: When she calls Wolvie in, she yells "Logan!".
* FlashStep
* FragileSpeedster: Has only 825,000 health but good mobility and very fast combos.
%%* HellBentForLeather
* HeroWithAnFInGood: Just like Wolverine, she tries to do good, but she's often hampered by her own issues.
* {{Invisibility}}: Her Level 3 hyper, which makes her a good character for mindgames for a short time (but the players themselves cannot see her either...). She also has a special grab when entering this mode, in which she reappears in the opponent's back, delivering a stealthy strike to the neck ForMassiveDamage.
* OperaGloves: She wears a pair of black ones.
* RoleReprisal: From ''WesternAnimation/WolverineAndTheXMen''.
* RollingAttack: Her Rage Trigger hyper involves her doing a rolling slash twice before doing a somersault kick.
* ShadowArchetype: Of Wolverine. She admitted herself as the second best there is at what she does and sought to be the #1.
* SlideAttack: A variant; she uses her both hand claws to do it.
* TrashTalk: This version X-23 is quite chatty and veers into outright PerkyGoth, as opposed to her [[{{Goth}} gloomy]] and [[TheQuietOne sullen]] comics self.
--> (''when winning against Wolverine'') So... Who's the best there is again?
--> (''vs. Nemesis'') I was gonna carve up your face, but it looks like someone beat me to it.
--> (''taunt'') Let me know when the fight starts.
--> (''winquote vs. Iron Fist'') Get a new act, dude. Kung fu is so 70's.
* UnexpectedCharacter
* WhatWouldXDo: When she activates X-Factor, she asks: "What would Wolvie do?"
* WolverineClaws
* YouRemindMeOfX
--> (''to Amaterasu'') So, any relation to Wolfsbane?
* YouWouldntLikeMeWhenImAngry
--> (''to all villains minus Sentinel'') Get out of here before I ''really'' get mad!

[[folder:Final Boss: Galactus]]
[[quoteright:210:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/6135574-10658564-thumbnail_6201.jpg]]
--> [[BadassBoast You are not unlike an ant fighting the Sun]].
-->'''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, ComicBook/{{Galactus}} feeds off the energy of living planets, which are located by his herald the Silver Surfer.

* AGodAmI: Defied:
--> If you can be a god... then what shall we call Galactus?
--> And you call yourself a god? Laughable.
* AboveGoodAndEvil: Galactus himself has acknowledged that it's all just rationalisations to quell his aching conscience.
* AttackOfThe50FootWhatever: He's so big all you see is his upper body.
* BadassBoast
--> I am Galactus and my power is absolute!
* BeamSpam: When his health gets about halfway.
* BigBad
* BlueAndOrangeMorality
* BreakingTheFourthWall: He makes his entrance by ripping apart the victory screen of the previous battle. And if you try again with another team after a game over, it's the "Hero Select" screen that he rips down.
--> "I remember your homeworld. It was ''delicious''."
* CoolHelmet: Lampshaded by M.O.D.O.K. This explains his ending.
-->'''M.O.D.O.K.''': I must admit, I had my eye on your helmet the entire time.
* CosmicBeing
* TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt: The titular fate of two worlds -- and he's out to cause it.
* EvilSoundsDeep
* EvilIsBigger
* EyeBeam: Which can deplete about 70% of the character's health.
* FinalBoss
* FingerGun: A shot from one of his fingers equals 30 hits. Taken UpToEleven when he uses all of his left fingers to [[BeamSpam fire multiple lasers]].
* FingerPokeOfDoom: His Snapback move.
* GiantSpaceFleaFromNowhere: The entrance mentioned above? That's the first you ever see of him.
* LeaningOnTheFourthWall:
--> ''This game is over!''
* NonstandardGameOver: If you lose to him and don't continue, you get a special ending sequence that doubles as Galactus's personal ending. You're also rewarded with some unlockable goodies related to him, such as his musical themes. Ultimate has rectified this so that you can get his ending and unlockables via Galactus Mode.
* OldSaveBonus: You unlock Galactus Mode on Ultimate straight away if you have data from vanilla [=MvC3=] on your hard drive. Otherwise, you have to obtain 30000 player points.
* OmniscientMoralityLicense
* OneHitKill: One of his attacks has him raise his hands slowly, charging a ton of energy before slamming it down on you. You can stop it by inflicting enough damage before he finishes charging, but if you don't, you can kiss your current character bye-bye.
* PersonOfMassDestruction:
--> I am a force of nature!
* PetTheDog: In a way.
--> (''to Thor, Shuma-Gorath, or Amaterasu'') I am not without mercy. You may serve as my herald.
* PhysicalGod
* PlanetEater: The dude has eaten Super-Skrull's planet, and now he threatens to eat both the Capcom and Marvel worlds.
* PowerEchoes: Standard for him.
* PromotedToPlayable: In ''Ultimate'', in a special Galactus Mode.
* ReminiscingAboutYourVictims: If Super-Skrull is leading the team in the battle against Galactus, he says this (specifically, about his planet).
* SoundtrackDissonance: If he wins the final fight, the same triumphant theme plays, even as the world is being destroyed. Played less straight if you watch his ending.
* SNKBoss
* ThirdPersonPerson: Several of his intro quotes do this.
* TrashTalk: He does this a ''lot''. Considering how powerful he is, though, [[SmugSuper he has every right to do so]].
* UnexpectedCharacter: [[http://kotaku.com/5850166/you-can-play-as-galactus-in-ultimate-marvel-vs-capcom-3 A special mode lets you play as him]] in ''Ultimate''.
* UnskilledButStrong: He has no real combat abilities (he telegraphs every attack by at least half a second, and his attacks are: Smash you, shoot cosmic rays, or fire more cosmic rays). But he makes up for this by every attack doing massive amounts of damage, even blocked, and being hard to or even impossible to dodge.
** [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] in his character bio, in which all of his stats are at Max Level, except for fighting ability.
* VillainProtagonist: In Galactus Mode.
* WellIntentionedExtremist: His main reason for seeking to devour the two worlds is partly because the villains on both of them teaming up would result in no doubt even ''worse'' havoc than him just doing what comes natural ever did.
