Darkstalkers, known as Vampire in Japan, is a fighting game series produced by Capcom; its first entry was produced during the fighting game craze of the 1990's. In contrast to the martial arts-themed fighting games of the time, the game's characters are (mostly) based on classic literary or film monsters — including Frankenstein's Monster, the Wolf Man, and the Creature from the Black Lagoon — and boast zany combos and attacks to help set the game apart from others.
In the first and second entries, the Darkstalkers are attracted to the human world and face the powerful alien demon Pyron who intends to add Earth his collection of planets to devour. After Pyron's defeat, they contend with the actions of the mad Makai noble Jedah Dohma who intends to remake the Makai by wiping out all life to create it anew.
Power of the Verse
The verse has plenty of planet busters, star busters and even galaxy level characters. It also has soul hax and massively faster than light speed. In the Japanese version, the denizens of the Makai are marked by class that rank their overall power. The Darkstalkers themselves range from Class B+ to Class S, the latter rank reserved for High Nobles of the Makai like Jedah Dohma and Morrigan Aensland at her full power.
