Added DiffLines:

* SidelinedProtagonistCrossover: Zigzagged with ''Franchise/MegaMan''. There were no playable characters bearing the name "Mega Man" but the playable representatives, [[VideoGame/MegaManLegends Tron Bonne]] and [[VideoGame/MegaManX Zero]], were the main characters of their own SpinOff games.


* ImprobableWeaponUser: There is a ''lot'' of this going on in this game. Most notably would be [[VideoGame/DeadRising Frank West]] and [[Franchise/AceAttorney Phoenix Wright]]. Wright especially, since at least Frank's weapons could theoretically be weapons. Wright uses "evidences" that he can either throw (for weak damage) or present on his hand which inexplicably fires different kinds of beams at his enemies. He even weaponizes his own speeches and CoutroomDrama (which, in his games, is shown to actually "hurt" people).

* DifficultButAwesome: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CqNfNarLSEE Plinkdashing]] is a bit more difficult than standard wavedashing. That said, the latter, more simple wavedash only really works with forward movement (unless you learn a slightly altered input for backwards dashing), as opposed to the advanced version, which is omnidirectional.
** Many characters also play like this, such as Phoenix Wright, Dormammu, Doctor Doom and Vergil.

His gimmick is that he must collect three pieces of good evidence before being able to go into his stronger Turnabout Mode. Once he does however, he turns into one of the most powerful fighters in the cast, gaining access to extremely oppressive moves and the second most damaging level 3 hyper, only behind Vergil's.


* {{Nerf}}: and Buff: Several characters have been nerfed and/or buffed in the ''Ultimate'' version. [[http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showpost.php?p=29565096&postcount=7093 This is the complete (not final) list.]]

* NonLethalKO: As standard for a fighting game, enemies are simply knocked out, not killed (you can even see the prostrate fighter still breathing). However, the dialogue options for some villains suggest that it becomes the Lethal version shortly afterward -- or [[FateWorseThanDeath worse]].

* TroperCriticalMass: When the game was announced, every example of it went into the VideoGame/CapcomVsWhatever page. It eventually grew so big, (even with all the sorting--as in, subjective tropes to [[YMMV.HomePage YMMV]], etc.--) that halfway it had to be cut into three other pages (''Marvel vs. Capcom'', ''[[VideoGame/SNKVsCapcom Capcom vs. SNK]]'', and ''[[VideoGame/TatsunokoVsCapcom Tatsunoko vs. Capcom]]''). And ''then'', the ''Marvel vs. Capcom'' page became SO big, with half of it being ''[=MvC3=]'' examples... so it had to be cut again. Cue this same page. The best part? ''The game wasn't even on the shelves yet''.

* SceneryPorn: The stages look like they were lifted straight from a comic book, with the Asgard and [[UsefulNotes/NewYorkCity Daily Bugle]] stages standing out.


* RoleReprisal: Quite a few:
** From the '90s ''WesternAnimation/FantasticFour'' and ''WesternAnimation/TheIncredibleHulk'' cartoons: Richard Grieco as Ghost Rider.
** From ''VideoGame/XMenLegends'': Creator/SteveBlum as Wolverine.
** From ''VideoGame/TheIncredibleHulkUltimateDestruction'': Creator/FredTatasciore as the Hulk.
** From ''WesternAnimation/FantasticFourWorldsGreatestHeroes'': Creator/PaulDobson as Doctor Doom.
** From ''WesternAnimation/HulkVs'', in addition to the Hulk himself and Wolverine: Creator/NolanNorth as Deadpool.
** From ''WesternAnimation/TheSpectacularSpiderMan'': Creator/JoshKeaton as Spider-Man.
** From ''WesternAnimation/WolverineAndTheXMen'', in addition to Wolverine himself and the Hulk (and had Season 2 happened, Deadpool): Creator/JenniferHale as Jean Grey, Creator/SusanDalian as Storm, Creator/TaraStrong as X-23, Creator/TomKane as Magneto, and Creator/JimWard as the Sentinel.
** From ''WesternAnimation/TheSuperHeroSquadShow'', in addition to Wolverine: Creator/CharlieAdler as the Super-Skrull (albeit, sounding more like [[WesternAnimation/GIJoeResolute Cobra]] [[WesternAnimation/GIJoeRenegades Commander]]).
** From the ''Film/IronMan2'' tie-in game: Creator/EricLoomis as Iron Man.
** From ''WesternAnimation/TheAvengersEarthsMightiestHeroes'' in addition to Iron Man, Hulk, and Wolverine (and had he not been redubbed, Spider-Man): Creator/BrianBloom as Captain America, Creator/RickDWasserman as Thor, Creator/ChrisCox as Hawkeye, and Creator/WallyWingert as M.O.D.O.K. This went both ways, as Creator/LorenLester and Creator/GregEllis reprised their respective roles from this game as Iron Fist and Rocket Raccoon in ''EMH''.
** From ''VideoGame/StreetFighterIV'': Creator/KyleHebert as Ryu, Creator/LauraBailey as Chun-Li, Dave Mallow as Akuma, and Creator/MichelleRuff as Crimson Viper.

** From the ''VideoGame/DeadRising'' series: T. J. Rotolo as Frank West.
** Also, most Capcom characters' Japanese voice actors (those that had any Japanese voice prior to this game, that is) reprise their role here.


* TheUnfavorite: Invoked by WordOfGod. A [[Website/{{Twitter}} tweet]] by one of the devs cited the targeting of overseas markets as the reason ''Franchise/BreathOfFire'' will once again be absent from a Capcom crossover game, despite that the series ''has'' received localized ports.
** However, ''Breath of Fire'' characters do show up in the Heroes and Heralds mode. As power-up cards, but at least it's something.

* ExcusePlot: Unlike the previous installments, it actually has something of a plot, but it's mainly "Wesker and Doom team up to gather villains to take over both realities".
** The lack of the expected story mode makes this a much straighter example than some would have hoped.
** Though there's more than a bit of AllThereInTheManual too, as there's quite a bit going on, but only in the supplemental materials and WordOfGod. Let's see... the two worlds are converging-likely caused by Dormmammu. This leads to the usual "heroes from both worlds waste their time fighting each other." Meanwhile, Wesker and Doom are attempting to use the chaos to their advantage, but the portals between the two worlds are unstable and they decide (due to an idea by the Super Skrull) to attempt to use energy from Galactus' ship. Though they are confident they can do it without the big guy knowing, they are wrong, and the enraged PhysicalGod then comes to earth to exact his vengeance. Doom's ending suggests he attracted the big guy's attention on purpose; Wesker's ending suggests he was surprised but just rolled with it.
** As seen above, the "Heroes and Heralds" mode in ''Ultimate'' has its fair share of this.

* BraggingRitsCharacter:
** After professional player Combofiend pulled off an extremely flashy comeback during a tournament, ending with Nathan Spencer's famous [[MemeticMutation "BIONIC AAAAAARRRRRRRM!"]] super, Spencer became one of the most anticipated and applauded characters in the game, with crowds usually shouting along with the aforementioned move call-out.
** Iron Fist is a character considered to be quite a low tier scrappy, but with very impressive and hard-hitting combos if a player could actually pull them off successfully. Since his combos typically involve a lot of stance-changes and FunnyBruceLeeNoises, fans always had a blast calling them out along with them.
** Dante is ''the'' combo-based character in the game, with an incredibly long moveset, with moves that cancel into other moves, cancelling into other moves, and into yet more moves. And he's also a WalkingArmory utilizing virtually his entire arsenal from ''Videogame/DevilMayCry3DantesAwakening''. When Dante is played in the hands of an expert, or even a mediocre specialist who has created their own unique combos, fans are typically eager to watch.

* CardBattleGame: ''Ultimate'' adds a new "Heroes and Heralds" mode for [[DownloadableContent DLC]] that takes the classic ''Marvel vs. Capcom'' fighting gameplay and applies ability cards to the mix. To be exact, the player chooses their favorite three Marvel or Capcom heroes ([[DesignatedHero or villains]]) and fight against heralds of Galactus (read: a team of other characters who have the chrome color scheme of the sub-bosses) to defend and save the Earth. The cards in the game give status buffs to stuff like combo ability, X-Factor, vitality and others.

* ArrangeMode: ''Ultimate'' features the Heroes and Heralds mode, where you choose between the team of Heroes, who protect the Earth from Galactus, and the silver Heralds, who work for Galactus to destroy it. You participate in fights to gain territory for your team, collecting cards and completing "hit lists" along the way. Cards can be obtained and equipped, which give abilities ranging from invisibility to additional combo strings. Hit lists are arranges in a bingo-like board, and completing a line will unlock a harder bonus stage with rarer cards.
