Added DiffLines:

*** Adding to that, she might not even HAVE a granny. Girl is nuttier than squirrel poop.

Added DiffLines:

*** Fanfiction, art, crossovers and comics are all non-canon, and these are the only confirmed moments of Morrigan molesting anyone. Despite her suggestive dialogue, there's nothing in the canon confirming that she's truly 'molested' anyone, as she does NOT need sex to survive; only excitement. Morrigan could hypothetically survive entirely on fighting. Lastly, the whole idea that Morrigan's bats are the souls of people she's defeated/seduced is NOT true; it was invented entirely in non-canon comics, and is even classified as an aspect of her that's exclusive to the comics, according to many sources. So as for the original question; no.

*** It seems to come from that in Donovan's Vampire Hunter ending, the grown up Anita is seen wearing the exact same outfit that Rose did in the Alpha series. (Coincidental, it was most likely just Capcom making the same JoJo Reference twice over)

** That's only in [[CapcomVsWhatever crossovers]], and is therefore not canon.

** The official explanation is that on the day Donovan meets Anita, she has a prophetic dream/nightmare of the events to come. Donovan is absorbed into that dream during his meditation. Also Dee was planned to be a Demitri headswap from the beginning, what you see in the PS2 collection was mostly finished back in 1997, just left unused.

Added DiffLines:

** I like to think that in-universe, she's essentially an even more unhinged {{Franchise/Batman}}, and while they can't show it in the context of a 1-on-1 fighting game, she comes into the fight having already prepared the area to her advantage, and every weapon is customized to attack the weakness of her current for, and she doesn't just stand there, but use cover, misdirection, and otherwise fight a one-woman guerilla war against far more powerful foes.


* Why does Marvel vs Capcom 3 even bother having Morrigan speak with a Scottish accent if she was raised in the Makai from infancy and thus shouldn't have it, has never been portrayed with an accent until this game {and don't be a smartass and say "She had a Japanese accent before!" because Yayoi Jinguji only spoke the lines in Japanese}, and her actress doesn't even hold it for half her lines anyway?

** Nearly all of the characters in this series have a "nationality" a la ''StreetFighter'' (the game's sister-series), because they are based on the legends found in or based in various diverse countries. Morrigan herself is named for a Celtic war goddess, and Scotland is her earthly dwelling of choice, and has been listed as such since her debut, so it stands to reason that if she communicates in the earth-realm, she would do so in the accent of her locale. What accent should they give her? Generic "American" would make even less sense.


* Does ''Darkstalkers'' take place in the same universe as ''StreetFighter'' and ''FinalFight''?

Added DiffLines:

** Darkness Illusion is a combo where she does attacks automatically, while Astral Vision keeps her under player control. You could say, then, that she casts Astral Vision as a part of Darkness Illusion.

Added DiffLines:

* What's the difference, if any, between Morrigan's [[DoppelgangerAttack Astral Vision and DarknessIllusion]] attacks? Both create Dopplegangers, and one is probably stronger from an in-game perspective, but beyond that, in universe, is there any functional advantage to using one over the other?


*** Perhaps the "darkness in her heart" does the real work and the bullets are just superfluous? That doesn't explained why she should fast enough to catch or avoid anything from Pryon, who casually travels between galaxies or bother the robot Huitzil or...you know what? GamePlayAndStorySegregation. The same reason character who hover above the ground can slip on a dropped banana peel. The same reason Donovan bothers with fighting at all instead of letting his flying sword and summons do all the work.

*** As for Dark Hunters in general, not all of the monsters are from Makai and not all of the Makai monsters are actually that strong. The most numerous are the D class, who are roughly human in ability and while the C and B types would be harder to defeat, it would be theoretically possible. Add some game play and story segregation and there you go.


** It varies based on the game. In darkstalkers he becomes a damsel in distress looking woman, while in CFE he becomes a young sorcereress looking girl with bats flying around her I think. In SVC, I think he becomes a spiky haired woman.

Added DiffLines:

** Morrigan having an "Scotirish" accent is not without precedent, the terrible American cartoon and some of the dubs of the anime have used it too. Presumably turning her name [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Morrigan into a reference]].

Added DiffLines:

*** Can you really call people writing a ''succubus'' as being sex-driven taking something to the level of "memetic molester", though? I mean if anything, adding a more sexual component to her behavior is more just sensible than anything else, considering that Capcom seems to have taken "succubus" to mean "sexy female demon that really really enjoyed '''fighting'''".
