* CanonWelding: The two series are shown to take place in roughly the same setting.

* CanonWelding: The two comic book series are shown to take place in roughly the same setting.setting, but neither are canon to the games of either franchise and take too many liberties regarding the lore and the characters' personalities.



* ContinuitySnarl: The previous ''Darkstalkers'' comics, whose events are acknowledged as canon in this comic, show that [[BrokenMasquerade the existence of monsters is public knowledge]]. This crossover treats the Street Fighter characters just finding out their existence now.

This crossover treats the Street Fighter characters just finding out their existence now.



* Many covers also show Morrigan as a friendly succubus and getting along with the other characters, such as Chun Li. That's the closest she's is to being portrayed right, since in the comics themselves she is depicted as an evil demon, and Chun Li is her main enemy from Street Fighter.



* TheDragon: Just like in ''Darkstalkers'', Lilith serves Jedah as his most important minion, since she is the one tasked with capturing all the warriors and bringing them to the Majigen. However, she abandons him when she reunites with Morrigan and agrees to help her stop him if they [[FusionDance become one being once again]].

* TheDragon: Just like Unlike in ''Darkstalkers'', ''Darkstalkers'' where she only followed him out of innocence, here Lilith serves Jedah as his most important minion, since she is the one tasked with capturing all the warriors and bringing them to the Majigen. However, she abandons him when she reunites with Morrigan and agrees to help her stop him if they [[FusionDance become one being once again]].



* KissOfDeath: How the succubi drains men's souls. Lilith tricks a group of monks into letting her into their circle, draining one dry before killing the rest with her wings. Morrigan does the same to an unsuspecting archaeologist before killing his friend for trying to interfere. Later, in order to convince Akuma to help her, Morrigan shows him a vision by kissing him. This means that being kissed by a succubus doesn't necessarily mean instant death, since she admits that she'd claim Akuma's soul if she didn't need his help.

This is one of the many mistakes with their portrayal in the comics, if not the biggest one (aside from being evil demons).



* StealthSequel: Who thought that they'd adapt [[VideoGame/{{Darkstalkers}} Vampire Saviour]] as a merger of both the Street Fighter ''and'' Darkstalkers comic timelines?



* WoundedGazelleGambit: Morrigan uses this tactic on a duo of archaeologists in Brazil, by taking the form of a female explorer that twisted her ankle and is completely helpless. As soon as she has one of the men in her grasp, she completely sucks him dry.

Added DiffLines:

The comic didn't sell well and it became a failure.


Added DiffLines:

* TheBadGuyWins: Given that the comics portray Morrigan and Lilith as evil scumbag, they reuniting and Morrigan being crowned queen of Makai is certainly this.


* KarmaHoudini: Infuriatingly, Morrigan gets away with tricking and killing countless innocent people, having coomplete freedom to keep draining innocent people's souls. Lilith as well, as she helped Jedah with his plan, killed innocent people through the story (even attempting to kill Elena) and never truly realized that helping Jedah was wrong, only helping the heroes to fuse with Morrigan. Not only they get away, but they achieve their goals and get a happy ending (Morrigan gets her power restored and is crowned queen of Makai whereas Lilith gets her true body back).

Added DiffLines:

* MoralMyopia: This version of Morrigan is an amoral Darkstalker who has no problem taking advantage of and killing humans, but it's completely enranged when she finds out about Jedah's plan and her kingdom is threatened. She even has the nerve to ask Donovan and Anita for help, having previously killed innocent people before.

* WhiteMagicianGirl: Except for [[HeroesFightBarehanded fighting barehanded]], Elena could almost certainly qualify for this trope due to her HealingHands, [[WomanInWhite wearing white]], having MysticalWhiteHair and her kind and gentle personality.

* KarmaHoudini: Morrigan and Lilith. Neither face punishment for all the innocent people they've tricked and killed before and during the events of the comic. Lilith in particular, unlike her canon counterpart, was completely aware about Jedah's plan all along, but still helped him anyway (originally, she only followed him cause he tricked her).
