YMMV: Marvel vs. Capcom: Clash of Super Heroes
  • Critical Research Failure: About the default colors for some of the Marvel characters:
    • Light blue Venom. It may have been a mistake or stylistic choice, given that his alternate color is in fact black, like the one in Marvel Super Heroes. However, has anyone seen a light blue Venom outside of Marvel vs. Capcom and Marvel vs. Capcom 2?
    • Orange and blue Spider-Man. (Likewise, his actual palette is available as an alternate color scheme.)
  • Ear Worm: Captain America's theme.
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: Captain Commando, Jin Saotome, and especially Strider Hiryu and Venom. The latter has the distinction of topping character fan polls for MvC3 DLC (alongside Gambit, himself a darkhorse), even long after the dev team stated that his fluid animations weren't compatible with the game's engine, whereas Hiryu (who skipped out on MvC3) had an inordinate amount of fan clamor which singlehandedly forced Capcom to work out a deal with Moto Kikaku in order to get him into Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3.
  • Freud Was Right: Morrigan's Eternal Slumber secret move. Complete with suggestive silhouettes and boudoir music.
  • Game Breaker: Duo Team attack (which allowed you to have both our characters on screen at the same time) when used with certain teams plus the Colossus assist.
    • Or for that matter the Colossus assist itself. Totally invulnerable, multiple hits, good damage, and gives ample opportunity to do any sort of combo you want it if hits. Psylocke, who has many of these same properties, is also quite popular. And once you learn the trick to get any assist you want, you'll have no reason to use anything else.
    • Any team involving Spider-Man, Strider Hiryu or Wolverine, at least in the right hands.
    • Gold War Machine/War Machine together on the same team is this, to the extent where if they do a Duo Team Attack and both perform a War Destroyer, the graphics start to glitch until the moves end.
  • Memetic Mutation: Some of Spider-Man's lines, such as, "One for J.J.!" and "Do your job!" (or alternatively, "DO YOUR GODDAMN JOB!") are minor memes in the community.
  • Narm: Chun-Li's ending in Marvel vs. Capcom: Clash of the Superheroes, where Charlie saves Chun-Li, but the way he kicks Bison off-screen looks more funny than dramatic. The other endings have varying degrees of Narm too, just watch.
  • Porting Disaster: The PS1 port omitted the tag team gameplay due to the system's limitations.
  • Tier-Induced Scrappy: Roll.
