Namco × Capcom
Actor Allusion: That Rom Stoll shtick Reiji pulls off, he starts it off here. Well, to be exact, Xiaomu says it then tells Reiji to do it. Sadly, he doesn't (in this game at least)
Hey, It's That Voice!: See here for yourself. You're bound to recognize a few names. And just as examples:
Sabine and Wonder Momo's VA was Ayako Kawasumi, also known as the voice actress of Akari Kamigishi and Saber. A ditzy Saber.
Kikuko Inoue voices Valkyrie. She is what happens when Belldandy becomes a full-fledged Lady of War, COMPLETE with armor.
Arisu Reiji is voiced by Kazuhiko Inoue. In and beyond, he becomes a walking Endless Frontier Shout-Out to Rom Stoll.
Strider Hiryu and Strider Hien are both voiced by Kosuke Toriumi, who you probably have heard as Kiba and ( in the most spectacular aversion of type-casting ) ever Szayel Aporro Granz.
Hideyuki Hori as Shou/Ginzu. He's voiced a ninja or two in the past.
Jenga is Nobuyuki Hiyama. You can hear his Viral voice.
Most of the cast reprises their roles, such as Cammy, Juni, Juli (all of them by Akiko Komoto) Ryu/Evil Ryu ( Street Fighter Alpha 3 Toshiyuki Morikawa), Akuma, M. Bison, (both by Tomomichi Nishimura) Karin (Miho Yamada), Ken, Guy ( Tetsuya Iwanaga), and Rose ( Michiko Neya). Atsuko Tanaka reprises her role as Chun-Li by virtue of .
Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike Marth Debuted in Smash Bros.: So far, the only (legal) way to play a game with Reiji and Xiaomu in it is .
Endless Frontier No Export for You: It was said that the game was originally going to be released in the US, however Namco backed out at the last instance because a lot of their characters being unknown. Their loss. Moreso if you consider the fact that they threw in Bravoman for the Virtual Console. However, a group defied this trope by releasing a patch which translated the whole game into English.
Still a moot point if you don't have a Japanese or modded PlayStation 2.
The Other Darrin: A few characters have undergone seiyuu changes (such as Ryōtarō Okiayu as Captain Commando, taking over from Takashi Nagasako in the games, or Marvel vs. Capcom Yuka Imai voicing Lilith instead of Hiroko Konishi), but a good number of the pre-voiced characters retained their respective VAs. In fact, some characters hailing from series where voice changes were a frequent event (i.e. ) actually brought Street Fighter back some of the past seiyuu for reprisals.
Talking to Himself: Many examples of this, due to the size of the cast.
