Secret Characters Edit
- Shadow - A darkened version of Charlie with powerful super moves that have incredible start-up lag. A version of Charlie that suffered harsh experiments at Shadaloo's hands, and now serves them. At the time the game takes place however, he has broken free of their control.
- Mephisto: A palette swap of Blackheart. His physical basic attacks ignite the opponent when they connect, but this is just an aesthetic difference. He is Blackheart's father in the comics.
- Mech-Zangief - A version of Zangief that can neither block nor be put into hit stun. Because Zangief can turn into this character in later installments of the series, many mistakingly called it "Evil Zangief".
- Dark Sakura - (Sunburnt Sakura in Japan) - A sunburned Sakura who throws fireballs horizontally instead of diagonally, and also has Akuma's Ashura Warp and can perform the Shun Goku Satsu (sometimes mistakenly called "Dark Sakura").
- Cyber-Akuma - A cyborg, amped-up version of Akuma created by Apocalypse. Also serves as the game's final boss. Called Mech-Gouki in Japan.
- Norimaro - Norimaro is a nerdish, cowardly schoolboy-type guy who is only available in the Japanese version of the game. He is armed with a camera and throws common school items, mini-Akuma dolls, and plushies as fireballs. He might even attempt to ask for his opponent's autograph mid-battle. But, despite this comic relief facade, he has some of the most powerful moves in the game. He is based on real-life Japanese comedian Noritake Kinashi.
- Armored Spider-Man - A gray version of Spider-Man that has limited armor, based on a metallic suit he wore in the comics as well as episodes later aired in the Marvel Studios animated series. He possess more resistance and sometimes no hit reaction to enemies attacks. He also has a slower walking speed and jumps slightly lower than before due to the heaviness of his armor. His damage from super combos is also reduced.
- U.S. Agent - Although a distinctly different character than Captain America in the Marvel universe, he is just a palette swap in the game. He has, however, his own winning quotes, which are very aggressive in comparison to Captain America's.
- Cody and Jessica from Final Fight can be seen in the background of one of the stages.
- There are several cameos of Rockman (Mega Man) in this game, in the mall stage, there's a cameo of a Rockman cut-out (perhaps someone in a Rockman suit), in relation to Capcom celebrating Rockman's "10th Anniversary" in 1997, they put a banner saying '10th Anniversary: Rockman' and in one of Norimaro's super combos, he does a cosplay of Rockman.
- Charlie, Gambit, Rogue, and Rose appear in the background in the 'Showdown in the Park' stage.
- Kei Chitose also appears at the beginning of matches when playing as Sakura.
- Despite being a Japan-exclusive character, Norimaro CAN be selected by hacking the game. Many of his graphics, when viewed, have English counterparts, hinting he was planned to be released in English versions of the game at one point.
