A quick look at MvC3's character-specific interactions

Going into Marvel vs Capcom 3, we knew it'd be chock full of references to classic games and decades-old comic heroes. Just yesterday we rattled off more than 40 cameos (in addition to the already robust roster of characters), but as a brief follow-up to both of those topics we wanted to point out the very cool addition of character-specific taunts and grudge match smack talkin'.

For example, before each match, the lead fighters on both teams will spout off some kind of one liner. Most are generic "let's fight!" fare, but several character combinations yield specific exchanges.

Above: Iron Man hits on every female character in the game and Deadpool references the world's most famous Marvel vs Capcom video

That's just the tip of the iceberg. With 36 playable characters talking to 36 playable characters, that's 1,296 possible interactions. The same goes for their post-battle trash talk:

Above: Akuma beats Wolverine and references a time when X-Men villain Apocalypse made Wolvie his horseman of Death

Above: Chris Redfield puts MODOK down once with fists, then with even more hurtful words

Above: When Dante tackles Dormammu, he wonders if the flame-headed demon could be related to other DMC characters

Above: Hsien-Ko begs Chris to stop shooting her, as no, she is NOT a zombie

Above: MODOK acknowledges his own massive head in this taunt directed at the loud-mouthed Viewtiful Joe

Above: Ryu, noticing Phoenix's inner turmoil, relates to her by referencing his own "Evil Ryu" persona

Again, this is just the beginning. So many possibilities that didn't have to be in the game in the first place. Very cool. Seen any that made you chuckle?

    Ryu to Deadpool: "Huh? You stole my shoryuken? When did you-?"

    Tron Bonne takes Dr. Dooms armor and steals his throne. Also, Sentinel calls Tron Bonne an inferior model.

    Felicia vs. Amaterasu is one of the best. "AWWWW! COME HERE, PUPPY!"
  • Robusken - February 19, 2011 3:38 a.m.

    This might be my favorite part of the game.

    If you beat Spencer with Deadpool, dead pool says "You were cooler without the dreads, but the game's easier since you can jump now."
  • Phazon117 - February 19, 2011 2:42 a.m.

    Awesome! I love how far and obscure Capcom and Marvel get with their own canon.
  • GhostbustTyler - February 19, 2011 2:30 a.m.

    I hope there's one with Deadpool and the Mango Sentinel
  • kermit1986 - February 19, 2011 1:52 a.m.

    Hulk has one for She-Hulk, I can't quote it, I only saw it once, but it was then that I realised that there was these interactions... I presume She-Hulk has one for Hulk also.

    one that i liked that i saw today playing was when ryu beat deadpool and says "hey you copied my shoryuken, when did you...?" haha great reference..
  • BishopofHippo93 - February 18, 2011 10:16 p.m.

    Deadpool's was definitely the best, but I also liked the Marvel Civil War reference between Iron Man and Captain America. By the way, Cap would totally kick Iron Man's ass.
  • juicenpancakes - February 18, 2011 10:12 p.m.

    Deadpool fan for life.
  • GillaMobstaYBD - February 18, 2011 9:37 p.m.

    I really like the Hsien-Ko and Chris one.
  • xXxBattousaixXx - February 18, 2011 9:36 p.m.

    I like when Iron Man taunts Spencer when talking to him about his bionic arm prematch. He tells him something along the lines of "only the arm? You couldn't afford the whole suit?"
  • Hullonotna - February 18, 2011 9:35 p.m.

    These are amazing, can you post some more. Please
  • AngryScotsman - February 18, 2011 9:22 p.m.

    Pahahahaha! Brett Elston... welcome to DIE!
  • CancerMan - February 18, 2011 8:48 p.m.

    My personal favorite is when Deadpool references Magneto's "Welcome to die!" line from that X-Men arcade game.

    Evil Eyu? Should be Ryu.
