** ComicBook/{{Magneto}}: Capcom pretty much gathered every single power (except PsychicPowers) Magneto has ever had since his debut, so yeah, in the hands of [[DependingOnTheWriter some writers]] the Master of Magnetism indeed ''was'' capable of creating [[BarrierWarrior Force Fields]] that were not limited to deflecting just metal; attacking with [[KamehameHadoken Beams]] and [[KiAttacks Energy Blasts]] that were said to be just a [[RePower Second Mutation]] of his already powerful control over magnetism. Simply put, Magneto isn't shown to have all these powers in the [[AlternateContinuity same continuity]].

** Wolverine is the only character to have appeared in every single game, all the way from ''X-Men: Children of the Atom'' to ''Marvel vs. Capcom 3''. ComicBook/{{Deadpool}} [[LampshadeHanging lampshades]] this in ''3'' upon beating him.\\
\\
In ''Marvel vs. Capcom 2'', he gets two different versions (Adamantium and Bone claws).\\
\\
''Marvel vs. Capcom 3'' has only one Wolverine, but it also includes ComicBook/{{X 23}}, although her playstyle and moveset (by virtue of being a KickChick) are quite different.
\\
''Infinite'', however, broke the streak, as Marvel's decision to keep the Marvel characters for whom Fox owned the movie rights (at the time) out of the game means no Wolverine in the game.

* AlternateUniverse: Marvel acknowledged the continuity of these crossovers (alongside ''X-Men: Children of the Atom'' and ''Marvel Super Heroes'') enough to assign them to their own official Marvel universe. Originally this reality was labeled "Earth-96169", but this was only found in the [[TheWikiRule Marvel Wiki]] and since no proof of being official was ever provided, the wiki eventually removed and replaced it with an unofficial "Temporary Reality Number" ([=TRN177=]). This was changed, however, when Marvel finally provided the official designation of this universe ([[http://marvel.wikia.com/Earth-30847 Earth-30847]]) in "Spider-Verse #2", alongside [[spoiler:the death of this universe's Spider-Man... Until it was retconned in ''Infinite'']].
