11 years later, Spyro got his shot to get revenge on Morrigan for the big upset in 2002, and back then it was our second ever match. It also coined The Jug Factor, so it's been a memorable upset since the dawn of our contests. Unfortunately, Morrigan got Marvel vs Capcom 3 since then. Spyro might have gotten something too, but who cares?
So that being said, everyone knew Morrigan was taking second place. She even got the benefit of early Sephiroth anti-votes to flirt with first place for a few minutes, but beyond that the match was standard and boring. The only exciting thing here was Zen's hilarious zoomed in Spyro picture that I was too dumb to save. I hope someone else has it <_<
My girl Morrigan shows up and just barely manages to avoid getting doubled by Sephiroth. There wasn't much interesting about this match except that Sephiroth really should blown these two out harder, but we all know about FF's fall by now.
It's funny to look at this result and then time travel back to the second ever match which had 30,000 more votes despite lacking Sephiroth:
Either Morrigan has fallen greatly or Spyro has risen significantly. They both managed to blow away the R1 fodder they were put up against in 2013, so it's hard to tell. Time has passed so much, but back in 2002 everyone on this site was super insecure about their maturity and they'd anti-vote all the kiddies and upvote all the tiddies. Things have changed since then, we now upvote both kiddies and tiddies. Sometimes Rikku, who is somehow both. For shame.
Also of note, Morrigan's last major appearance was Marvel vs Capcom Infinite. I love Morrigan and Ghost Rider, and they have this stupidly corny cutscene where they meet for the first time, and I absolutely loved it:
"Tell me, Rider, is it business that brings you here... Or pleasure?"
"Ah, a bit of both."
she just wants to get into his bone zone, incredible
not so incredible: everything else about Marvel vs Capcom Infinite
