Mai Shiranui cameo?
Anybody who finished Samurai Shodown with Haohmaru or Gen-an might remember seeing Mai Shiranui in their ending sequences. She appears making a visit to our character's stages, and always ends up executing her Ryu En Bu attack. She seems to kill Gen-an with it, and the result with Haohmaru is unknown (the action freezed).
However, she might as w...

Majin Ve-cheata
Majin Vegeta is undoubtedly the toughest character to unlock in Supersonic Warriors 2. However, savvy players can play as him simply by a having both Super Saiyan Vegeta and Babidi on their team. Sure, it's not as thrilling as unlocking him yourself, and it takes up a team slot and support that you might have used differently otherwise, but it sure...

Marn's Shameful Adventure
Mr. N is a brutal caricature of FGC personality Martin "Marn" Phan. Most aspects of his story and behavior are based on events and scandals that involved (or are rumored to have involved) Marn.

Mr. N's outfit is based on the pajama/neck pillow combo Marn wore to the EVO 2009 finals. His friend Dustin Weinburger whom he "rides the coattails o...

Mexican or Japanese?

Applies to: Huitzil
Might as well have called it "Purr"
Before the western arcade release, the name "Roar" was trademarked an apparent attempt to make the title of Bloody Roar acceptable to soccer moms. The fact that they ended up going with "Beastorizer" isn't much better.
Applies to: Bloody Roar

Despite being officially deceased following the events of Advanced V.G. 2, @char=miranda_vag@ makes a cameo appearance in 2 instances: one in @char=masako_vag@'s stage in V.G.

Missed the Boat
Doto Kazahana was removed from the U.S. version of Naruto Ultimate Ninja 2 by Bandai due to assuming that nobody would know who he was, having an appearance only in the yet-to-be released Naruto movie.

Mother Superior Jumped The Gun
The Joker and Deathstroke both have Fatalities in which they shoot their opponent in the head with a pistol. Since Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe was destined to be rated "T for Teen", the ESRB would have none of this, despite that the same game features Jax shooting opponents to death with a machine gun, and The Joker and Deathstroke having non-fat...

Muppets vs. Capcom
Hidden in the sprites of Marvel vs. Capcom's arcade release is this fellow who looks an awful lot like Sesame Street's Bert.

Drawings of Tomichin also shows up in some marketing materials for the Marvel vs. serie...
