Marvel vs. Capcom 2 Tiers, Popular Teams and Character Rankings

Keep in mind that tier listings have been and always will be subjective. They never tell the whole story, but they do help tell a part of it.

As such, it's best off to play the characters that you like, people who match your own personal style, instead of playing characters, "just because they're high tier."

That is why I never play this game and never will. Seldom do I see a a team without Magneto, Storm, or Sentinel.
Every team has one of two out of the three... Or all three...
Top tier whores.

Ooh. My preffered team did not do so well. Blackheart is pretty high up there, but Shuma-Gorath and Thanos both got the royal shaft.

this is the most chaotic and unbalanced fighting game i have ever played...

...and I love it.

lol Roll tier

klyz806 said on March 8, 2012 at 7:29 p.m.

i use hayato , magneto , iron man . hayato is fun and although slow does nice damage . and if he fails i still have 100% combos with magneto with iron man assist for only 2 meters . ( 80% with one meter)

alalexex said on April 9, 2012 at 9:15 p.m.

i use sakura.felicia and shuma goroth pretty good damage.

BruceWayne said on September 6, 2012 at 3:54 p.m.

Dhalsim , Rouge , Ken , Cammy , Jill , Ryu is my top team mix. Assists ruin this game when people spam the shiz out of them especially with comanndo , blackheart and psylocke.....oh and tronne

darthvenom said on February 3, 2013 at 12:10 p.m.

I just realized my team(as far as tiers go) sucks. Captain America,Venom and Akuma are all really low. But I really like them, Wolverine, Psylocke, and Captain Commando.

TAcexOniwing said on October 31, 2014 at 3:37 p.m.

rouge, doom, and Cyclops... Super nutty together

I wonder why Rey Jimenez voice was never heard by the community, when he said "infinites are a mistake of the game, we don't like them (at capcom)".
