I don't do overtime, and I don't particularly like rematches, either. So would you mind accepting your loss and going home.

Nick Fury shows up at her darkened apartment just as she's getting home and offers her a job in working for S.H.I.E.L.D.


Viper is a rushdown type character, employing the use of mixups, feints, and baiting. Viper is the only character in MVC3 that has EX moves that cost 1 meter per use, making her heavily meter-based. She can also perform eight-way angled air dashes for good mobility. She has a Focus Attack from SF4 that can be used as a close range counter attack and can combine her Seismic Hammer and new Optic Laser attacks to control space and force her opponent to come to her.

Theme Song[]




  • Capcom themselves stated that C. Viper can be considered an expy of Captain Commando, especially, since it's commonly speculated that her abilities were inspired by Captain Commando in the first place.
  • Her pre-fight quote against Chun-Li references their rivalship in Street Fighter IV ("It's an Interpol agent. Don't worry, I'll take care of her.")
  • She is apparently aware of the existence of the organization A.I.M. and its leader - M.O.D.O.K.. This might suggest that, in the game's story, C. Viper is sent to hunt M.O.D.O.K. down as another objective.
  • Her new Optic Laser move is based on Cyclops's move Optic Blast from previous games in the series. The Japanese name of the move further supports the reference: "Optic Bright" (オプティックブラ, Oputikku Buraito?) is one kana away from "Optic Blast" (オプティックブラ, Oputikku Burasuto?).
