I want to thank whoever it was at Capcom that insisted on including this obscure Lovecraftian horror in their Marvel fighting games who only appeared in three stories in thirty years.

I would like to know though, who was it at Capcom that knew about him? Did they have somebody deliberately go look for nonhumanoid Marvel characters? Or was somebody at Capcom a hardcore Dr. Strange fan?

If I recall a few of the weirder deep cut characters was just because the dev team thought they'd be fun to do

Capcom also introduced me to X-23 with MVC3 and she has since became my second favorite Marvel Character. Capcom did that for a lot of people it seems

The reason was "haha tentacle monster go shllurp".

the way shuma emotes in that game is fucking amazing

Iirc the majority of the cast was human shaped and they wanted to mix things up a bit. One dev saw a wierdo tentacle monster in a Marvel reference book and was like "that guy."

Shuma-Gorath at this rate owes any and all popularity he has to Capcom.

Do you think any of us would care about the Game and Watch as much if Melee didn't have Mr. G&W?

Justice League / Unlimited are how I learned about like 90% of the DC characters I know

Same. Then I watched Batman: Brave and the Bold, which covered the other 10%.

Samus. I first learned about her through original Smash Brothers, she was my main. I got into Metroid proper when Prime and Fusion both released.

If it wasn't for Heroes of the Storm, I would never know the Zerg now had waifus and husbandos.

Daggoth was a thing since the beginning, the best cerebrate by far. Not picking him is heresy

I didn't really play Jacky or Sarah until Dead or Alive. Sure I knew they existed, but why not go for Wolf, Kage, or Jeffery?

Probably Devilotte De Death Satan IX

Oh fuck, there's totally a reference to this in (super vague spoilers)a space game (less vague spoilers)Seriously, don't click if you don't want it spoiled, it's a multiplayer space exploration game and the reveal is super worth going unspoiled (spoilers)Pulsar.

It's a random event, so one of your jumps might just pop you into this thing's lair, and its eye opens, which is 10x bigger than your ship, and you can actually fight it. It's super cool. Highly recommend Pulsar if you have 4 friends to play it with.

Had no idea it was a reference until just now.
