Scrapped ideas for potential characters included Howard the Duck (cut because the director felt Norimaro already filled the gag character role in the series and the failure of the Howard the Duck movie), She-Hulk (cut because the fourth-wall shenanigans wouldn't fly in arcades and she'd be a slightly-worse Hulk otherwise) and Spider-Ham (who Capcom USA suggested instead of Howard the Duck. He was cut for the same reason as Howard). She-Hulk later appeared in Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds.
