Trivia: Marvel vs. Capcom 3

For the Mythology Gags, check this page.

Deadpool almost didn't make it in due to a translation error placing him on Marvel's "no go" list. A Capcom translator asked Marvel why a fan-favorite shouldn't be in the game, and the mistake was fixed.
  • DLC was initially planned for MvC3 in the form of the Ultimate version itself (similar to Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition), but the tsunami and earthquake in Japan messed with the development schedule. As a result, the planned DLC and some other new additions were refurbished and packaged as Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 in a disc release.
  • There're also some lines from some characters which didn't make the cut into the game. For example:
    • Some of Deadpool's lines:
    "Look at me, ma! Hahahahahaha! LOOK AT ME!"
    "Hey, how come I don't get Scarlett Johansson?"note 
    "Hey, Spidey! Remember how your webbing can't touch windows? Just like how you couldn't touch me?"
    • Also, Deadpool was said to sing some lines of Michael Jackson's songs to match his moonwalking, but out of fear of being sued, the idea was cut out.
    • Deadpool had quite a number of zingers against Spider-Man, including how Spidey's fighting ability sucks almost as bad as his Broadway musical.
    • Spider-Man's pre-battle line for Ryu:
    "Hey, Karate Kid! Ralph Macchio called, he wants his look back!"note 
    • This can also be seen with earlier builds of the game. Many of Deadpool's quotes were revisednote , Iron Man's assist quote was originally "It's on you now." instead of "Excuse me!", Dormammu actually called out "Floating Bomb!" for his Stalking Flare hyper instead of "I summon the power!", and an exchange between Dante and Morrigan (which would have been a Mythology Gag to Nevan's "Well now, aren't you a handsome devil." line to Dante in Devil May Cry 3) was cut, among others. There are also a few unused voice clips found in the Sound Test (such as Zero's reaction to being K.O.-ed via chip damage or a light attack and an alternate victory quote for when Dormammu defeats Shuma-Gorath).
  • A stage based around Ōkami was considered, but was dropped due to clashes with the art style in the game. The theme for the stage was finished however, and is actually still in the game disc.
