"Wow! I love your claws!"
—Felicia, when first in line-up against X-23
Felicia is a video game character from Capcom's fighting game series Darkstalkers (or Vampire Savior in Japan.) She first appeared in Marvel vs. Capcom 2: New Age of Heroes and returms in Marvel vs. Capcom 3 alongside Morrigan, along with Hsien-Ko joining.
Felicia was raised by a Catholic nun named Rose. When Rose died, Felicia left her town hoping to be a musical star. During her travels, she met many other catgirls of her kind. With her newfound friends, she set out for her dream of being on stage. Eventually, she and her friends started a musical with Felicia being the main star.
Getting to stardom was an uphill battle for Felicia due to the increasing prejudice towards Darkstalkers in general. In her travels, she met up with Lord Raptor who was about to do a rock concert, but was stopped due to the audience being composed of hunters. Felicia and Raptor were forced to fight their way out and went their separate ways. She then met up with Jon Talbain, a werewolf not particularly fond of humanity. Felicia, with Jon's help, managed to save a town from an invasion of Huitzils, and she solemnly believes that Darkstalkers and humans can coexist, hence her dream to be a musical star to bridge the gap.
In her Darkstalkers story, Felicia was approached by an agent who made her dreams of stardom come true. She even makes a shout-out to Street Fighter, mentioning that she hopes to guest star Blanka in one of her shows.
In the events of Darkstalkers 3, she wondered about how she could make others happy. In her ending, Felicia founded an orphanage named "Felicity House."
Felicia is still working for coexistance between humans and Darkstalkers. She starts by trying to prove to Jon Talbain that humans aren't all bad by taking him to stay at her old orphanage she grew up in.
Felicia is known for her long blue hair, her cat ears and tail, and her white fur which barely covers her up to the point a bikini would cover her more. She also sports a curvy set of hips and breasts which are the largest of the Darkstalker ladies.
Felicia is a rushdown character relying on speed and combos to take her opponents apart. She is especially deadly when comboing on a cornered opponent.

- EX Charge: Felicia can manually charge the hyper combo gauge.

Felicia's Theme in Marvel vs Capcom 3 is a remix of her stage theme from Night Warriors: Darkstalkers' Revenge.
- Felicia has alternate color schemes based on her Night Warriors MP (blonde hair) and LP+MK (black fur, crimson hair) colors, and her Vampire Savior SK (red fur, but with her white hair swapped black) color. For Ultimate, she gets her Vampire Savior MP (dark skin, pink hair) color. Her DLC costume is based on Yellow Iris from the game Battle Circuit.
- Her ending sees her start up a musical act based on her adventures in defeating Galactus with Dazzler. What's the name of the musical? Cat Scratch Savior. As in "Vampire Savior". This also serves as a call back to her original goal to become a superstar singer in the first Darkstalkers.
- On the U.S. website of Marvel vs Capcom 3, Felicia was until recently the only character whose entire body was cut out (the same was more recently done to Morrigan as well), leaving just her head and right hand. This could be due to her body and might have forced the developers of the website to adhere to censorship standards. The same thing goes for Marvel vs Capcom 3's Facebook picture of her. Even in the game's intro, her body is cleverly censored most of the time. Her breasts aren't visible because she is piggybacking on top of Haggar, and her buttocks are hidden at one point by her foot.
- She was confirmed early May of this year in Game Informer's May 2010 issue, also featuring Captain America, Dante, and Deadpool.
- If she is defeated by Spiderman, as the last partner of an opposing team, he questions the coincidence of dealing with "cat" women named "Felicia". In the comics, he once dated a woman named Felicia Hardy, who is also known as the Black Cat.
- Apparently, Felicia had done a show in Metro City, as her win quote against Haggar has her comment about inviting him and Jessica to one of her shows.
- Felicia's ending involves her partaking in a musical tour with Dazzler of the X-Men called the "Cat Scratch Savior."
- Oddly, while she refers to her partners by their names in Japanese, she doesn't seem to know most of their names in English, and she's overall portrayed as far less intelligent (for example, calling Wolverine "dog man", even though wolverines are mustelids rather than canids, while in Japanese she simply calls him "Wolverine").
- Felicia's rival appears to be Captain America as they both seem to work well with others and both have dreams. Captain America has The American Dream while Felicia has a dream of becoming a pop star.
- Interesting to note is that all dark stalker characters to appear in mvc3 also appear in Super Gem Fighter mini mix as well as they are the only playable chacters from that series in said game.
- Her official artwork in UMvC3 is visually similar to that of her official artwork from Darkstalkers 1.
- Her profile in MvC3 seems to imply for some reason that her non-canon Vampire Savior ending was canon.
- The nighttime NY stage in UMvC3 plays a digital ad of Felicia and Dazzler's concert taking place in the concert hall.
- Felicia's win quote against Frank West is a nod to her plot in Pocket Fighter where she aspired to expand her musical career to film.
- Felicia is the only barefoot female fighter in all the Darkstalkers games, Puzzle Fighter, Pocket Fighter, Namco X Capcom, Cross Edge, and MvC2, She is later joined by Amateratsu in MvC3 and UMvC3. .
- Felicia's win quote to Dr. Strange is a nod to her goal of fighting for Darkstalker rights among humans.
