The Marvel vs. Capcom series is a series that consists of fighting games developed by Capcom involving Marvel's characters fighting Capcom's characters.

The Term

Marvel vs. Capcom often abbreviated MvC, in M.U.G.E.N is a term (in this case also a format) used to describe any character that has similar gameplay mechanics to the game even if they were not a member of it. These traits include but are not limited to:

  • A super jump that is so tall that the stage needs to be about two times taller than normal to see them.
  • Super special moves that require 2 punch or 2 kick buttons to be pressed to activate.
  • Chain combos that escalate from light to heavy attacks and can be done so rapidly
  • Air combos, which can be started with a launcher or meeting an opponent in the air, which function similarly to ground combos.

They also often feature Marvel vs Capcom effects like the "First Attack" or increased air mobility with air dashes and dodges. However, this is not mandatory.
