Non-Playable Characters

The infamous Umbrella Corporation has long worked on creating Bio-Organic Weapons, experimenting on humans with all manner of biological agents to create unstoppable killing machines. With the Convergence, A.I.M.brella has taken B.O.W. research even further with the introduction of an alien symbiote that can turn mere men into violent and nigh-unstoppable super soldiers.
  • Body Horror: Their upper bodies look like they actually lack skins, with their muscle tissue exposed and covered in symbiote.
  • Combat Tentacles: The can grow tentacles to attack their enemies with.
  • Composite Character: A combination of the B.O.W.s from Resident Evil and the symbiotes from Spider-Man.
  • More Dakka: One of their moves involves pulling out a machine gun and firing recklessly in front of them. This has a Hyper version where they fire a lot more bullets and follow up with a rocket-propelled grenade.
  • Mook: They serve this role for the A.I.M.brella chapter of the story, appearing in pairs of 6 in 3 battles.
  • Wolverine Claws: Some of their moves involve slashing at their opponent.


    Dah'ren Mohran 

Dah'ren Mohran

A massive Elder Dragon, inhabitant of Valkanda's great desert. During story mode, it is infected by the Sigma Virus carried by the Ultron Drones and, in its frenzy, starts attacking Valkanda.

  • Brainwashed and Crazy: Being infected with the Sigma Virus causes it to go into a destructive frenzy.
  • Cutscene Boss: After Ryu and Hulk fend off the Ultron Drones near the Royal Gate where the monster is rampaging, a cutscene shows the two dealing with the monster and ultimately defeat it.
  • Kaiju: As an Elder Dragon, it is a truly gigantic beast dwarfing all other characters in size.
  • Sand Is Water: It's pretty much a sand crocodile in look and how it "swims" in the sand dunes. It even performs flips around like a dolphin.
  • Timed Mission: The Dah'ren Mohran appears in the last battle of the Valkanda chapter attacking the royal gates in the background, and the player has to defeat a number of Ultron Drones before the beast can break through.



Voiced by: Alicyn Packard

The physical incarnation of Death in the Marvel Universe, who is the target of Thanos' admiration.

  • The Bad Guy Wins: A downplayed example. With the Marvel and Capcom universes permanently fused due to the damage done to the Reality Stone, all the people killed during the events of the Convergence remain deceased. In a way, Death still got what she wanted - the deaths of countless beings in order to bring balance to life and death in the universes.
  • Big Bad Duumvirate: She and Jedah are the collective cause behind Thanos' - and subsequently Ultron and Sigma's involvement in the plot.
  • Cosmic Entity: She is the embodiment of death, decay and destruction, having been born at the moment the Marvel universe was born.
  • Greater-Scope Villain: Serves as this alongside Jedah in a Villain Team-Up. Thanks to Jedah's suggestion of bringing equality between life and death (and his ultimate plan to do so), Lady Death used Thanos' love for her to convince him to change and merge the Marvel and Capcom universes together. However, unlike Jedah, Death only appears in two scenes and has no direct involvement with the plot.
  • Walking Spoiler: She only appears at the plot's most critical moments, where many plot twists are revealed.

    Doctor Light 

Doctor Light

Voiced by: Michael Mislove

One of the most famous scientific minds of the twenty-first century, Dr. Thomas Light helped to revolutionize robotics technology with the creation of robots that looked and acted like humans. His ultimate creation, Mega Man X, is the first robot to be able to think, feel, and act on his own intuition, and the one who laid the framework for the genesis of an entire race of intelligent robots known as Reploids. Although he has long since passed on, he continues to aid X and his allies through special capsules containing his memories, personality, and holographic likeness.

    Grandmaster Meio 

Grandmaster Meio

"Bear witness to the death of your world."
Voiced by: Adam Harrington

A cruel, enigmatic being with godlike powers. He has long opposed Strider Hiryu in his quest to eradicate all life from Earth in order to manipulate and reshape it in his own twisted designs. Here, he's the master of Knowmoon, a fusion of Knowhere and his personal space station Third Moon, assisting Ultron-Sigma's plan; it's where the Power Stone is situated.

  • A God Am I: His usual MO.
  • Arch-Enemy: For Strider Hiryu. For at least a thousand years, apparently.
  • Ascended Extra: Went from a Heroes and Heralds card in Ultimate to one of the villains in the story mode of Infinite.
  • Bald of Evil: Actually averted, unlike in his origin series. Looking closely, he appears to have receding white hair.
  • Born-Again Immortality: Implied, based on Hiryu's comments about their eternal struggle and Meio claiming death to have "no dominion" over him.
  • Boss Banter: He has something to say every time he throws an attack.
  • Body Horror: He's pale, covered in red veins, and instead of legs, he has a flat, wormlike body with intestine-like tubes coming from the back of it.
  • Brainwashed and Crazy: He has rewritten Zero's programming, effectively turning him into part of his forces.
  • Creating Life: One of his primary powers, Hiryu instead refers to it as "corrupting life" for the sake of his own goals.
  • Cutscene Boss: He's personally killed by Hiryu and Gamora in a cutscene after Nova and Cpt. Marvel fought him and the Ultron Drones.
  • Depopulation Bomb: He has turned the Gravitron Core into this: a Sigma Virus-charged bomb capable of turning all biological life on Earth into mechanical forms.
  • The Emperor: He's called the "Imperator" of Knowmoon.
  • Evil Laugh: Gives one when confronting Nova and Captain Marvel.
  • Energy Ball: One of his signature moves as a boss character in his series, he can be seen charging one in his hands during trailer 2. He also uses it to assist the mooks that battled Cpt. Marvel and Nova.
  • Evil Old Folks: The man has been killed and come back alive again for a thousand years, as Hiryu noted.
  • Flunky Boss: He's never fought directly. Instead, he sends minions out for the player to fight, while he throws projectiles from the background.
  • In the Hood: Always seen with a black hood.
  • Kill All Humans: One of his goals is to kill off all life on Earth.
  • Mad Scientist: He uses his knowledge to transform the Gravitron Core into a transport for the Sigma Virus able to spread it worldwide.
  • Misanthrope Supreme: He really hates humanity, and even confess to Nova and Marvel that he's actually content to see their kind suffer.
  • Shock and Awe: His other attack is to send a pillar of electricity from his hands.
  • Shout-Out: One of Meio's lines during his "battle" is cribbed from his famous line in Strider, "All Sons of Old Gods, Die!"
  • Power Floats: Something of a necessity for him, given he lacks legs.
  • Teleport Spam: He teleports around if moved off-camera.
  • The Unfought: They really tease it with his introduction dialogue, but he's just there to chuck projectiles at the player.
  • Villain Team-Up: The only villain who has joined Ultron-Sigma to assist on their plan to eradicate all biological life, since it falls in line with his own desire for Earth's life to be eradicated.



Voiced by: Wally Wingert

George Tarleton was a mild-mannered technician until he was kidnapped by wayward scientists from Advanced Idea Mechanics (A.I.M.) who performed cruel experiments upon him, changing him into the Mental Organism Designed Only for Killing: MODOK. A wretched cybernetic mutant madman, MODOK has gone on to be a menace to the Avengers, and Captain America in particular. Since the Convergence, he has become the leader of A.I.M.brella, experimenting on creating Bio-Organic Weapons enhanced by otherworldly means. He's holding the Mind Stone that our heroes are looking for.

  • Assist Character: He assists Nemesis and the B.O.W.s in the story mode by using the Mind Stone.
  • Boss Banter: He speaks, laughs and gets angered depending on what's happening on the battle.
  • Cephalothorax: A giant (more than usual in this instance) head on a rocket chair.
  • Demoted to Extra: Went from being a playable character in the previous game to a background cameo with a minor role in the story mode.
  • Flunky Boss: He fights the player with Nemesis and a hoard of B.O.W.s while sitting in the background throwing lasers and powering up his minions.
  • Mad Scientist: Works in a biological research laboratory creating mutated monstrosities out of human soldiers.
  • Mad Scientist Laboratory: He's found deep within an underground A.I.M.brella laboratory.
  • Not Drawn to Scale: MODOK appears in the background of the A.I.M.brella stage, and he is absolutely gigantic. He takes up a good quarter of the entire backdrop for the stage.
  • Role Reprisal: Like in the last game, from The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes!.
  • Status Buff: He can throw two orbs which restore life or increase meter for the B.O.W.s/Nemesis.
  • Super Mode: His use of the Mind Stone's Infinity Storm grants the B.O.W.s and Nemesis with unlimited meter for its duration. Fortunately, the AI rarely makes good use of it.
  • Talking Is a Free Action: Averted, Spider-Man swipes the Mind Stone from him when he's chatting it up.
  • Villain Team-Up: He's developing a symbiote for Jedah to use. He also has Nemesis under his control.
  • Villain with Good Publicity: His company A.I.M.brella enjoys a positive public image, despite the reputation of the companies who merged to form it.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: He's never even mentioned again after his chapter ends.



The Klyntar, better known as the symbiotes, are a race of amorphous inorganic aliens that possess the ability to symbiotically bond with other lifeforms, enhancing their hosts' physical capabilities to great heights. Normally the klyntar seek worthy hosts to create noble warriors, but can become corrupted into vicious monsters if they bond to an evil, unworthy host. Spider-Man crossed paths with one such symbiote, which became a new costume for him until he realized its plan to permanently bond with him, forced it off of himself, and tried to destroy it. Jedah has captured a corrupt symbiote and enhanced its power with the Soul Stone through the sacrifice of a million souls, transforming it into a gargantuan monster.

  • Asteroids Monster: Pieces of its biomass were used to augment A.I.M.brella's B.O.W.s, and a piece blasted off overtakes Spider-Man in the story mode.
  • Demoted to Extra: Venom was consciously omitted from the third game after being a playable character in the first two, but the symbiote — or at least a symbiote — returns to the series... as a boss monster in the story mode. However, Venom is Promoted to Playable as a DLC character.
  • Eldritch Abomination: Jedah's plan involves turning the symbiote into one, using the Soul Stone to imbue it with the power of a million human souls. He plans on feeding it as many as it takes to make it powerful enough to overthrow Ultron-Sigma, and succeeds in making it powerful enough to shrug off attacks from both universes' heaviest hitters. The thing is only defeated when the heroes uses the Time, Mind and Power Stone together to blow it up along with the falling Gravitron Core.
  • Healing Factor: The thing simply regenerates from all attacks the heroes throw at it.
  • Kaiju: The symbiote takes this form during the Story Mode, as seen in third Story Trailer.
  • The Symbiote: The symbiote Jedah captured is a member of a species of amorphous symbiotic extraterrestrials that empower their hosts and act as Bio-Armor. Rather than have a host, this symbiote is augmented by the Soul Gem and transforms into a giant monster.
  • The Unfought: For all the buildup the giant Symbiote has, it ends up being background material for one battle, and then killed in a cutscene.
  • Villain Team-Up: The symbiote appears in the story mode being used as a power-up for A.I.M.brella's and Jedah's demon army.

    Ultron Drone 
Ultron has created a massive army of drones to aid him in his quest to exterminate organic life. While not as strong as their creator, each drone shares Ultron's abilities and make up for their frailty with overwhelming numbers, as well as being empowered by Sigma Virus.

  • Assist Character: For Ultron.
  • Hand Blast: They can fire lasers from their hands.
  • Mecha-Mooks: They serve as Ultron-Sigma's main muscle throughout the Story Mode.
  • Moveset Clone: They share many of Ultron's moves.
  • Zerg Rush: During the final chapters. They often appear in large numbers in other chapters too. This is usually represented in gameplay with battles facing up to 6 drones together, 2 at a time.



"Do you think... you can... defeat us!?"
Voiced by: Jim Meskimen (Ultron) & Chris Tergliafera (Sigma)

The evolved version of Ultron-Sigma, who's fought as the final boss of Arcade Mode.

  • Above Good and Evil: "Good, evil... We have transcended such... limited concepts."
    X: "Yeah? Well, transcend THIS!"
  • Cephalothorax: They're the giant head of Sigma with the top half of Ultron poking out of his forehead, with two pairs of hands floating beside them.
  • Damage-Sponge Boss: Has a lot of health, and their attacks can take off half of yours.
  • Defend Command: Sigma can sometimes put his big hands in front of his face to defend against your attacks. Doing enough hits on it will make them break out of it.
  • Energy Ball: Sigma can fire one from his eyes that slowly moves forward. They also have the Reality Stone's Infinity Surge, but they fire 3 at a time instead of just 1.
  • Final Boss: Of both the Story and Arcade modes.
  • Floating Limbs: Have two pairs of hands floating beside them, one for each half of their fusion. Sigma has a pair of strong hands used for punching and grabbing, while Ultron has sharp claws used for slashing and firing lasers. When they're down to low health, they can merge them for stronger attacks, including a new grab Hyper Combo.
  • Flunky Boss: Can periodically summon Ultron Drones to assist them.
  • Frickin' Laser Beams: Ultron can fire a spread of lasers that carry the opponent upward. Ultron's giant claws can also fire lasers that crumple you.
  • Mechanical Abomination: This is essentially what they are after they draw out their full power after the Soul Stone rejected them for having no actual soul.
  • Mythology Gag: He is highly reminiscent of the more monstrous forms Sigma took on in the PlayStation-era Mega Man X games, primarily X5. Additionally, the Ultron portion of him resembles Ultron-6. Nova even outright compares him to when Ultron merged with the Phalanx Virus in Annihilation Conquest.
  • One-Winged Angel: He is this for Ultron-Sigma.
  • Power Echoes: Fitting for a final boss of their size and strength. This is on top of the Voice of the Legion that they have.
  • SNK Boss: Their health pool is nothing short of absurd, with most supers taking off maybe 1/20 at best. Meanwhile, their own attacks can shred through your own health bars like wet tissue, and take up large portions of the screen. They have both the Reality and Space Stones, and while the latter isn't much of an issue since you'll generally want to be in their face anyway, the former is superior to the player's version because it sends out multiple homing shots at once instead of just one. They also can go offscreen and not come back until you defeat some Ultron Drones, which aren't too much of a threat but love to block and waste your time as Ultron-Omega harasses you with energy blasts that force you into a crumpled state. Perhaps their worst aspect, or at least most annoying, is the fact that when Sigma decides to put of their guard, they are completely invulnerable. This wouldn't be so bad if it wasn't for the fact that not only does he guard for an obnoxiously long time, but they're considered to be "guarding" the moment the animation starts, long before his hands are actually in front of Sigma's face. It is far too common for your supers and Infinity Storms to end up wasted because you were a frame too late and Sigma had already begun his guard animation.
  • Villainous Breakdown: They're more-or-less the personification of one. Not only are they literally breaking down (as shown by the cracks on Sigma's face), but their speech has become much less sophisticated than it was as Ultron-Sigma.
  • Wave Motion Gun: Sigma has one in his mouth, so it also doubles as a Breath Weapon. He uses it in two of their Hyper Combos.
  • You Will Not Evade Me: They possesses the Space Stone, which they can use to keep you close or confine you in a cube.



"We had a dream: our two diseased realities united towards a new purpose."
Voiced by: Jim Meskimen (Ultron) & Chris Tergliafera (Sigma)

By the power of the Infinity Stones, Sigma and Ultron have fused together to form Ultron-Sigma. With their might combined together, and the Infinity Stones at their disposal, they seek to conquer both of their universes.

  • A God Am I: "Will you not bow before your god?"
    Thanos: You are no god.
  • All Your Base Are Belong to Us: Takes over Asgard in the story.
  • Alternate Company Equivalent: Could be seen as one to Dark Kahn, given the similarities to their dimension hopping, Fusion Dance origins and status as The Corrupter. The big difference is that Ultron and Sigma willingly join forces, unlike Dark Khan who is created by accident. It's also worth noting that this isn't the first time Ultron has fused with someone, either.
  • Badass Cape: An aspect retained from Sigma. Comes complete with a High Collar of Doom.
  • Big Bad: One formed from the Big Bad Duumvirate, no less.
  • Blade Lock: in one cutscene they briefly got locked in this with Dante, and then they push him away.
  • The Coats Are Off: Ultron-Sigma, deciding to personally greet their opposition, are seen dramatically removing their cape moments before they begin casually mowing down the heroes left and right during the story's first chapter. They also do it before fighting Thanos in Avengers Tower, and during the heroes' raid of their palace during the climax.
  • The Corruption: Enhanced by the Infinity Stones, the Sigma Virus now infects and corrupts machines and organic lifeforms alike. They've used it on the Asgardian warriors, and we're shown them doing it to two hapless Asgardians, turning them into their mindless servants on the spot. Thor also falls victim to the Sigma Virus early on, and later Dah'ren Mohran.
  • Death from Above: One of their hypers has them summon multiple lasers falling from the sky.
  • Energy Ball: Like Ultron, they can perform this as a special move. And also the Reality Surge.
  • Evil Sounds Deep: Thanks to Ultron and Sigma's already deep voices being combined into a Voice of the Legion.
  • Exactly What It Says on the Tin: He is Ultron and he is Sigma. This does match with Ultron's general "Ultron-Number" and Sigma's general "Prefix Sigma" naming schemes, though.
  • Extra Eyes: Has a second set of eyes located on their chest, possibly meant to represent Sigma (as they're blue, much like Sigma's, and are surrounded by purple streaks of paint that resemble his iconic scars).
  • Facial Markings: Have Tron Lines vertically intersecting their eyes, which symbolize Sigma's eye scars.
  • Final Boss Preview: In the story mode's first chapter, you'll fight them in the end. They have an obscene amount of health/defense, most attacks will not graze them, they've got a combination of Sigma's and Ultron's special moves, and they can use 2 Infinity Stones. You're not supposed to win this battle — even if they don't defeat you outright, the fight automatically ends when their health reaches 30% and leads to the exact same cutscene of them overpowering the heroes.
  • Fusion Dance: Ultron and Sigma use the Infinity Stones to combine with each other. The beginnings of the fusion is when Sigma purposefully lets Ultron attack his body, causing him to contact Sigma Virus, merging their minds together in Ultron's body and boosting their power, enough to beat Thanos.
  • Gameplay and Story Integration: True to the story, Ultron-Sigma uses 2 Infinity Stones at once in gameplay, Reality and Space.
  • Godzilla Threshold: You know he's bad when the heroes are willing to solicit help from Thanos.
  • Hand Blast: They can fire purple shots from their palms, a carryover from Ultron.
  • Hannibal Lecture: They tend to be fond of giving out condescending speeches.
    Ultron-Sigma: Commander Redfield, do you have something you'd like to add?
    Ultron-Sigma: That's it? Some banal cliché? It's fitting that those would be your final words!
  • Laser Blade: Unlike Sigma, whose saber is colored green, Ultron-Sigma's is purple.
  • Lightning Bruiser: It comes with the territory of being a boss character - not only do they have a lot of health and very powerful attacks, but they've inherited both effective movement options (Ultron's flight and Sigma's teleports) as well as special moves that complement each other very well (Ultron has a variety of long-ranged specials, while Sigma has primarily melee attacks).
  • Mechanical Abomination: He's an absurdly powerful robot fusion corrupter created and powered by two of the Infinity Stones. Powerful enough to go One-Man Army on both brands' heroes. Case in point: they once No Sells Mjolnir, an officially divine weapon. They're also the reason behind the two universes merging.
  • Mouth of Sauron: They can speak through their Ultron Drones and whoever the Sigma Virus infects, including Thor.
  • No-Sell: The story trailer demonstrates Ultron-Sigma's threat level and sheer power by showing them shrugging off every attack the assembled heroes throw at him, including X's Nova Strike and Mjölnir itself.
  • One-Winged Angel: Wouldn't be a Marvel VS Capcom game without this trope. After their failed use of the Soul Stone, he manages to evolve himself to transforming into Ultron-Omega.
  • Power Crystal: Keeps Sigma's red forehead gem, though in this case the gem is none other than the Reality Stone. Additionally, the "face" on their torso has the Space Stone embedded in its "forehead."
  • Royal "We": Ultron-Sigma refers to himself with plural pronouns like "we," "us," and "our(s)," owing to their origins as two separate beings now inhabiting a composite body. Ultron-Sigma also ends up taking over Asgard at some point during the story, making him (technically) royalty.
  • SNK Boss: Moreso in Arcade Mode than Story Mode - they can use two Infinity Stones vs the player's one, plus they have a wide variety of effective special moves and movement options. Additionally, being an AI opponent, they're better at blocking than nearly any human player would be. Somewhat Justified by the fact that they are an AI in-universe.
  • The Soulless: As a machine, they possess no soul. Which means they can't use the Soul Stone.
  • Spikes of Villainy: Wears spiked bracelets and boots, yet another carryover from Sigma.
  • Teleport Spam: Teleports a lot even without the Time Stone.
  • Voice of the Legion: Sigma and Ultron's voices are both layered over each other's in this form.

Infected with the Sigma Virus, the soldiers of Asgard have been mutated into techno-organic slaves of Ultron-Sigma. They no longer possess any free will of their own, and are now forced to turn their blades against Ultron-Sigma's enemies.

  • An Axe to Grind: One of the two variant Xgardian wields a small axe.
  • Brainwashed and Crazy: The Sigma Virus has caused them to lose their free will and become violent.
  • Composite Character: They are Asgardian warriors from Marvel infected with the Sigma Virus from the Mega Man X series.
  • Dash Attack: One of their moves is a quick shoulder tackle.
  • Immune to Flinching: They have limited super armor: once they start, it will take more than 1 hit to stop them. Only attacks that knock them off their feet (like a Launcher Move, sweeping attack, etc) will break through the armor.
  • Mook: Serves as Ultron-Sigma's secondary muscle in Xgard-themed chapters.
  • Zerg Rush: Like Ultron Drones, they appear in large numbers during the Xgard-themed chapters, and gameplay-wise can fight in teams of up to 6 Xgardians, fighting the player 2 at a time (or alongside Ultron Drones).

Example of:
