The 43 character cameos of Marvel vs Capcom 3

Hulk and Chris tear ass through what appears to be the original Resident Evil mansion, only now RE3's Nemesis is among the house's many denizens. Too bad Nemesis isn't anywhere near Hulk's power level...

Viewtiful Joe's ending begins with him and Captain Blue apprehending Alastor and Jet Black, all while throwing out a Phoenix Wright reference. But then...

... turns out they're just starring in a show put on by X-Men villains Mojo and Spiral! The former is an obese, ratings-hungry monster who rules the Mojoverse, and the six-armed latter was actually a playable character in Marvel vs Capcom 2.

Magneto's ending has him taking over Galactus' sun-sized spaceship, which he then uses to create a new home for Mutantkind. This final scene shows several muties flying to freedom, including non-playable characters like AngelExodusBansheeSunfire and Aurora , plus what appears to be a flying Iceman and Nightcrawler.

Morrigan finds the seediest of seedy bars, which is filled with demonic Marvel baddies like Satannish and Mephisto, whose son Blackheart was playable in prior Vs games.

Capcom's ultimate fighter, Ryu, squares off against The Immortal Iron Fist in his ending, which is one of the best matchups in the whole game. Notice how the background also references Ryu's American counterpart Ken as well as Marvel's Mr X.

Sentinel's ending shows an army of cosmically powered robots taking over the world, headed (as usual) by Master Mold.

She Hulk (aka lawyer Jennifer Walters) gets her own courtroom show alongside Phoenix Wright and Miles Edgeworth (ace attorney and pro prosecuter, respectively). A lovely fit!

Storm heads back to Wakanda to be with her husband (and Avenger) Black Panther, who's actually about to take over Daredevil duties from Matt Murdock in the Marvel Universe (don't ask).

Trish (from Devil May Cry) continues her demon hunting ways and ends up hunting poor Nightcrawler in the process. That's two cameos, but still not playable. Could he be the next DLC character?

    Might've been Mentioned, but in Haggar's ending, when he starts running for President. Tony Stark is his VP according to the newspaper

    Not a great power if you want to hurt someone? Urm, Dazzler shoots lasers, has punched through mountains with her photons, creates energy weapons and recently nuked Psylocke's face... That aside, ya know, thanks for posting the cameos. LOL

    Dust (Marvel/Hellions) makes a cameo in Deadpool's ending

    CAMEO ALERT: Go back to sentinals ending, 2nd picture, one of them is holding Dan Hibiki. I rushed here as soon as i saw it!

    I want to believe that with this game increasing the awareness of the Mega Man Legends universe, that we might see a third in the series come to light. Capcom? Oh, and Nightcrawler needs to become a playable DLC.

    would love to see a judge dredd/judge death camo, mabey dredd aprehending one of the villans who excaped to his universe, or death encountering deadpool or wolverine, but struggles to kill them due to there healing factors

    @Corn Fuuuu I knew that! I even had the screen taken and forgot to include it in the article. As for @mattdark's pointing out of Teisel and Bon Bonne... well done! I admittedly know little of the Legends world, so I did indeed miss those.

    I'm pretty sure Poison is in the "Metro City" stage, my apologies if someone has already mentioned this.
  • philipshaw - February 18, 2011 1:24 p.m.

    Thanks for posting these because I don't think I would finish the story that amount of times to just see the different endings
  • mattdark - February 18, 2011 7:29 a.m.

    Surprised you didnt mention Tron Bonnes brothers Teisel and Bon Bonne, who sit right in the background of one stage, along with a bunch of Servebots, and the Bonne's ship flying around occasionally.

    If Daredevil is prosecuting Wesker, why does it matter if he knows Wesker is evil?
  • Robusken - February 18, 2011 6:16 a.m.

    Some of these cameos just make me a sad panda, they could have been in here instead of having cameos! Whine whine whine. I really do enjoy the crossover endings though.
  • Ridureyu - February 18, 2011 3:51 a.m.

    I'm sure there are more cameos in morrigan's ending, but iut's hard to see - is that Satanna in there? Damien Hellstrom? more random demons nobody remembers?
  • LBD_Nytetrayn - February 18, 2011 3:44 a.m.

    I believe that the regular 616 universe version of Nick Fury sometimes uses the Samuel L. Jackson look as a disguise. He's done it at least once, anyway. And, of course, the current Avengers toon and the recent movies have been doing the same, so it makes some sense. Not like any of this is canon to anything, anyway, right?
  • GorditaSlim - February 18, 2011 3:27 a.m.

    I love that they use these cameos to include characters who couldn't make the roster. I want to play it so bad! Curse being so poor!
  • Corsair89 - February 18, 2011 3:24 a.m.

    Well, that's one way to get Phoenix and Edgeworth into MvC3...
  • DontMessWithMeImRunningOutOfPlacesToHideTheBodies - February 18, 2011 2:40 a.m.

    I hope they keep the cameos coming...with more levels. Seriously there's only like 10 levels in the game.
  • NightCrawler_358 - February 18, 2011 2:28 a.m.

    I love all these cameos, they make me feel so smart! Also, what you said about Nightcrawler making 2 cameos and possibly being a DLC really brightened my day. I hope he will, hes perfect for it, and everybody loves him! Great game, it's been a while since I've been so hooked on a fighting game!

    Dan is in the second screen of the Sent ending.
