I sense a strong power gathering. Perhaps tonight won't be so boring after all.Morrigan's winning quote.
Morrigan Aensland is the main protagonist of the Darkstalkers series by Capcom. She is a succubus and a powerful monarch of the demon realm Makai. She has an obsessive fascination with the human world.
She has appeared in every game in the series since Marvel vs. Capcom: Clash of Super Heroes.
Morrigan has moves based primarily on Ryu and Ken from Street Fighter. Morrigan's Darkness Illusion was the first super move to use the button press sequence (LP, LP, F, LK, HP) that is now commonly associated with the Shun Goku Satsu. In Marvel vs. Capcom 3, Morrigan gains a more distinct style of fighting. She has plenty of options in the air, unlike Ryu or Ken, and is significantly faster than Ryu or Ken. One of the many running jokes (and points of criticism) among fans is that she has had the exact same sprite set as far as Capcom vs. SNK 2 (2001) as she did in the original Darkstalkers (1994). Her sprites look especially out of place in the Capcom vs. SNK series as they gain a black outline in the borders. Obviously, in Marvel vs. Capcom 3, Morrigan has a new character model in 3D.
Theme Songs Edit
- Morrigan's ending in Marvel vs. Capcom: Clash of Super Heroes has her and Ryu playing Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo, a super-deformed Street Fighter-related game whose title pokes fun at the various pseudo-sequels of Street Fighter II; it also featured characters from the Darkstalkers series and the game Cyberbots: Fullmetal Madness, Morrigan included.
- She was one of the first six characters to be included in Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds.
- Morrigan was shown alongside Iron Man, to match the theme of both craving constant attraction from members of the opposite sex. In Morrigan's case, she is a succubus, a demon who feeds off the lust of any males who fall to her seductions.
- The winning screen in Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 for Morrigan depicts her lying on her stomach on a bunch of bats, similar to her sister Lilith's winning pose from Vampire Savior/Darkstalkers 3.
