Trivia / Squirrel Girl

Go To

  • Urban Legend of Zelda: Many fans have been wishing for Doreen to be named as a playable character in Marvel vs. Capcom 3. In response, this doctored screencap began to float around. The creators openly decided not to include her because they liked the joke of Squirrel Girl and thought her inclusion—which would mean a balanced play style and a potential tier ranking—might ruin the joke.note 
    • Though she might have had a better shot of making it in that this would suggest, so long as you believe MvC3 producer Ryota Niitsuma. Niitsuma used Twitter to share the rationale for including or excluding certain characters from the game, and said this when he brought up Rocket Racoon:
      We were actually considering Squirrel Girl at the time, but when he was brought up it turned out we had way more raccoon fans than squirrel fans at the office, so we went with him.

  • What Could Have Been: She almost made the leap the to the Marvel Cinematic Universe via TV series, New Warriors, which would've been a more comedic entry in the TV side of the universe and had her leading the team. While a pilot was made and shopped around, the initial network that took it, Freeform, ultimately passed on it due to budgetary issues. The show ended up lingering in Development Hell for awhile with no news, until it was ultimately revealed it was quietly put into indefinite hiatus and seemingly cancelled. The only remnant of this was the casting of Milana Vayntrub to play her being retained for Marvel Rising.

How well does it match the trope?
