You may be wondering how the character walk speed data was gathered. First off, all of the characters were captured at 60 frames per second starting at the max distance possible and then having them walk forward.

Each clip was placed on the frame right before the fighter's walking animation begins. The clip was then advanced 75 frames and a screen shot was taken. This way all of the characters started at the same time and advanced the exact same number of frames — so no one got a head start.

The order the characters are listed in — from fastest to slowest — was decided by overlaying all 36 images and using the grid lines on the training stage as a points of reference. Because some of the characters stick out random appendages and generally all have different stances while they're walking, their bodies couldn't accurately be used to judge the distance traveled, instead going by how much the camera had or hadn't panned proved to be much more accurate.

Who gives a f*ck about walk speed? I can't even remember the last time someone walked in this game, you're either in the air or dashing.

@4 Walk speed could leave a player zoned out that's why.

Bigger DOES NOT ALWAY EQUATE slower.

Grow 20 feet and see how fast you can get around town by walking.

Hulk being faster than 1/3 of the whole cast is pretty f***ing scary especially when you remember that that 1/3 includes charaters who have no way to cover their retreat like:
22. Captain America
22. Hsien-Ko
28. Ryu
32. Chris Redfield
32. Haggar
32. Thor

all the others have good enough keep away game or teleports or moves that the hulk can't hit unless timed right

^ Obviously MALDA sucks at MVC3.

Every character is broken in some way, that's what makes it great. And in some ways, that's what makes it balanced.

Whatever man.

The list is so wacky, who would've thought? And if anything, Akuma is gdlk in walking! Thats the Satsui no Hadou for you guys.

MadnessFamilyguile
what do you mean whatever? If Chris were too shoot a gamma charge would cancel it and Hulk would be CLOSER, same thing with Hadouken, and Even thunderbolt, Haggar would be the only one person to be scared of when running in on

Capcom Really?
Sentinel is #3 in speed his health was 1.3mil right under X-23

And hits hard and can take alot of hits and has deadly easy combos and has horrifying normals. This why your games get Pirated!

Did you guys not read or see that Sentinel is like a Tin Can to most of the A-Class Mutants. Wolverine, Cyclops, Rouge, Storm, Hulk, and ofcourse Magneto, LAUGH at Sentinel when he approaches.

BTW Joe's health is about right but Ammy's is way too low. She was REALLY string in her game!

Should I say "bump"?

This guide needs an update now that it's already 2-3 weeks ever since UMvC3 came out.

@19

Exactly, i want to see if anyone is faster than Akuma, which i highly doubt, but its fun to Kno that i can out run more than half the cast when they are in X-Factor mode :D

I love how Thors bio in the game says he's really fast when in reality he has a pathetic walk speed and dash.
