Music Monday #77 - “Theme of Mega Man” from Marvel vs. Capcom
You can’t lie. You know damn well when you saw Mega Man in Marvel vs. Capcom, you had the most hyped “what the fuck?!” reaction ever. Then hearing that “Mega Man 2 opening” remix as well?! Man!
Just like how you did it again in good ol’ Marvel vs. Capcom 3, right?! (Oh, wait…)
Mega Man is no doubt one of the most unique characters in fighting game history. He would’ve been even more creative if Capcom had given him more power-ups in Marvel vs. Capcom. (Power-ups from Megaman 2 would be good to go along with the theme) Regardless, Leaf Shield was the business!
A shame he couldn’t had been in three straight Marvel vs. Capcom games. I guess you really can’t think of any special attacks for him after being in the first two prequels, while having ten main games with over 75+ special abilities to choose from.
A Super where he fuses with Rush? Pffft… how stupid! It wouldn’t be as cool as Sougenmu!
It’s all good.
I still have the original Mega Man games and there’s even Street Fighter x Mega Man! Of course, there’s Marvel vs. Capcom: Origins and Marvel vs. Capcom 2 as well.
RIP in peaceHappy 25th Birthday, Cancelledman.
Maybe for your 30th birthday, you can once again show them how much you can kick ass in a future crossover fighter.

23. What’s your favorite Super attack?
It has to be Rogue’s “Goodnight Sugar” from the Marvel vs. Capcom series. The regular special move version is where my URL derives from but the super version she has in this series was always fun to pull off.
From the moment you hear her yell out “GIT REEEADY!!!” you know shit’s about to go down and when it connects she attacks with a relentless barrage of punches before launching you skyward and finishing you off with a kiss, which then for a limited time after she can use one of your special moves.
It’s always fun to finish off your opponent with this super move because it’s not until after the kiss that the screen goes all flashy and epic and it’s a bittersweet way to send off your opponent.
