Top 50 Most Wanted Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 Characters

Several months ago I skimmed through three major sites (Capcom Unity, GameFAQs, Shoryuken) when they were voting on characters they would like to see added as DLC for the original Marvel vs Capcom 3. I added up the tallies from all three sites and posted an article here showing which characters were in demand. Well I’ve done it again, but for Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 this time.

While the three sites conducting DLC polls are still running them for another few weeks, this post is a good indication of where public demand seems to rest. I took the fifty most voted for characters and compiled this list so that folks can check out how voting is going without having to wait until the eventual DLC poll results. Since this is a mashing together of the results of all three sites, it gives a pretty good idea as to what the universal demands are for this game.

So, let’s get to it! Here are the fifty most wanted characters at the moment.

Interesting Tidbits

Anti-Venom?
I’m sure the white Eddie Brock symbiote as the fourth most requested character threw off a few readers. What I did was take all votes that were for Eddie Brock’s Venom, as well as votes that didn’t specify which Venom incarnation the voter was asking for, and simply threw them into the tally for Anti-Venom. So, the 248 votes for Venom are comprised of people who wrote the following in their requests:
A) Anti-Venom
B) Venom (Eddie Brock)
C) Venom

Why did I do this? Because you Venom fans are NEVER going to get Brock’s Venom. The issue is more than just the character not being relevant anymore. Brock’s Venom does not even exist anymore as a character. The symbiote was removed by Brock long ago and has taken on several different hosts since. Recently, Brock attained a new symbiote (remnants of the original Venom symbiote hidden in his white blood cells) which is essentially the same as Venom only, well, a lot more badass. Anti-Venom is the same ol’ Eddie Brock, almost the same ol’ Venom… Just with a new name, new look, and awesome new powers. All of you Brock Venom demanders should really stop wishing for the original to return. He won’t. Ever. MvC3 is a marketing exercise for Marvel, and they would gain absolutely nothing from allowing an irrelevant character that no longer exists into the game. Anti-Venom, however, very much exists. Anti-Venom is what you all want, believe me.

The other Venoms?
I counted ten votes for Flash Thompson’s Venom and three votes for Mac Gargan’s Venom. Clearly they are not very popular.

Breath of Fire
The franchise that Capcom seems to desperately ignore these days managed to muster up about 150 votes at the time of my counting. Nina and Ryu amassed most of those votes, while Fou-Lu (BoF4) and Rei (BoF3) each hovered around the 10 vote mark. Momo, Scias, and Ursula all managed to snag one a few votes each.

Voting Tendencies
The majority of Sigma’s votes came from Shoryuken. They have long had a confusing Sigma fetish and desperately want him included. I’m not exactly sure why, but I won’t complain since I like Sigma myself.

GameFAQs voting was pretty much all over the place with no clear tendencies, proving that their votes are perhaps the most diverse of the three communities (at least in the early stages of voting).

NeoGAF definitely had it on for Emma Frost much more than the other communities. Close to a third of her votes came from NeoGAF. They also gave Roll a nice push and, without them, Ryu (mute dragon Ryu, not homeless fighting Ryu) would have been several places lower.

As for Capcom Unity, they were hot and heavy over Mega Man X (naturally) and, surprisingly, Ms. Marvel. The sole reason Ms. Marvel is so high is because of the Unity voters. If it hadn’t been for them (they had her two votes away from breaking even with Gambit at one point) then Ms. Marvel could possibly have ended up with less votes than Psylocke.

It’s worth noting that all four communities seemed to want Gene quite a bit. Capcom Unity, NeoGAF, and GameFAQs did not seem to favour Psylocke much this time around, with the majority of her votes coming from Shoryuken.

Don’t like something you see? Have an opinion you want to share? Feel free to sound off below.

Final Note: I would not advise anyone to add up the data from all three sites by themselves, as it is very time consuming. It took me roughly seven hours to do in total, which I decided to do bits of while I was at work (yes, I have a very quiet job). Unless you have LOTS of time and are somehow restricted from doing anything productive, then don’t even bother torturing yourself.
