=============================================================================
1.0) Background
=============================================================================
  This is section of the guide is completely worthless, but may be 
entertaining if you are looking to learn about who the character is. In the
following sections I provide the little snapshot the game gives him and info
I know about him based on the games I've played.


------------------------------------
1.1) Game Profile
------------------------------------
(This came from the game, unless otherwise noted, so credit goes to the
makers of the game for this section.)

Real Name: Morrigan Aensland

Occupation: Head of the Aensland House

Abilities:
   The large wings on her back are able to transform as needed into tools
such as a jet booster, large sickle, drill, etc. She is also able to drain
her opponent's energy, and can create clones of herslef.

Weapons:
   In addition to powerful magic, she can also utilize her wings which are
composed of a collection of bats.

Profile:
   She is a succubus, a demonic creature able to seduce men. She is well
known for her voluptuous figure and her titillating clothing. Although she is
the head of the Aensland House, one of the three major houses of the demon
world, she often abandons her dull duties to go looking for excitement.

First Appearance: Darkstalkers (1994)


                    ACTUAL     
Intelligence      |  6/7     
Strength          |  4/7      
Speed             |  5/7      
Stamina           |  4/7   
Energy Projection |  6/7      
Fighting Ability  |  6/7     




--------------------------
1.2) Extended Profile
--------------------------
This part is all coming off my recollection of the character from the 
original stories he is apart of. Careful, there will be spoilers.


I'd like to start this off with an apology: I know next to nothing about
her, so her extended profile is going to be very, very short.

A succubus born as an S-rank demon, Morrigan's power was split into 3 
pieces (her, another succubus named Lilith, and the last part held by her
father) out of fear. Leading a life without knowing this she repeatedly
visits the human world in the search of fun, returning one day to find her
father dead. Having reclaimed a portion of her power she also takes over as
the head of her family's house.

Still seeking fun, she neglects her duties to continue visiting the human
world. At some point she comes across Lilith (the last third of her power)
and the two fuse together to restore her to full power.


--------------------------
1.3) Alternate Costumes
--------------------------

Costume 1 (X): Standard
  - The way she appeared in Darkstalkers and previous Marvel Vs Capcom games.

Costume 2 (Tri): Orange w/ Yellow Hair
  - The purple parts of her outfit are now orange and her hair is yellow.

Costume 3 (Sqr): Green w/ White Hair
  - Same general concept (alternate color scheme). This may be a tribute to
    Lilith.

Costume 4 (R1): Pink w/ Purple Hair
  - Same general concept (alternate color scheme)



--------------------------
1.4) In-Game Dialogue
--------------------------
This section contains notable dialogue the character says during battle. 
Things like him shouting a character's name is omitted unless he refers to
the character in a special way. Also, sayings directed at him by characters 
that are unique are also written down. If I'm missing any please let me know,
but make sure it's not like: Hulk while swapping mid-battle "Morrigan!"


Intros:
   "I hope we can have some fun."
   "You're in for quite a night."
   "Don't let me scare you."
   "Bad feels so good."
   "I want you, body and soul."
   "So... like what you see?"

To Tron - "Aren't you just the cutest."

To Magneto - "Allow me to help release your hate."

To Phoenix - "You need to strip off those prosaik morels."

Victory:
   "Let's play again sometime."
   "Is that all you got?"
   "Good's not bad, but bad is better."
   "I'll take good care of you."
   "Relax and let me do all the work."
   "Oh, we'll play more later."
   "Let's try that again."

To Tron - "[Laughter] Children should be sleeping at this hour."

To Magneto - "You need to learn to think happy thoughts."

To Phoenix - "Show me your true form. Let it out."

End-Level Dialogue Box:

   "I could use a nice plaything like you."

   "I'm so glad you wanted to take me on, but you didn't have what it takes
    to truly satifsy me."

   "I sense a strong power gathering. Looks like tonight won't be so boring
    after all!"

   "Mmm, that was fun. Let's do that again."

   "Mmm, that really did not satisfy my urge. I'm going to have to look for
    someone else to take care of me."

To Phoenix - "Strip away those inhibitions and let your true self out. 
            There is no shame in that."


Taunt: "Done so soon?" or "Fool."


Finishing Shower Activation - "Can you dodge this?"

Astral Vision Activation - [Hard to discern]

Shadow Servant Activation - [Can't hear last word(s)]

Darkness Illusion Activation - "You've been naughty."

HC Activation in a series:
   Middle - "Can you feel it?"
   Last - "This is all for you..."

  (hits 33 times on ground, 35 times in the air)



=============================================================================
3.0) Strategies
=============================================================================
  In this section I will cover what combos I have developed that
makes her a formidable character. The first sub-section covers specific 
combos I have performed that are either very flashy or incredibly devastating
or useful. The second section is meant to set up basic combos with her when
she is the only character you have left.


------------------------------------
3.1) Team Hyper Combos
------------------------------------
Morrigan has a deadly list of hyper combos in her arsenal, but only 3 of
them are comboable. Below is a compilation of some chaining for a lot of
damage.


Felicia (Dancing Flash) --> Shadow Servant
 - Cancel into morrigan anytime before Felicia takes the enemy into the air.

MODOK (Killer Illumination) --> Shadow Servant
 - MODOK's killer illumination hits 30 times before he throws the enemy onto
  the ground. The moment he spikes the enemy into the ground cancel into
  Morrigan.

Dante (Million Dollars) --> Finishing Shower/Darkness Illusion
 - Cancel into either of Morrigan's hypers after Dante's second to last
  shot (if he fires off the "Jackpot" shot both finishing shower and 
  darkness illusion will lose effectiveness).
  Note that Darkness Illusion works 100% of the time here.

Trish (Round Harvest) --> Finishing Shower
 - The moment Trish lets go cancel into finishing shower. The enemy will be
  too caught up in the spiralling sword to defend (just make sure to keep
   the enemy on the ground or Trish's move will force this combo to fail).

Hsien-Ko (Tenrai Ha) --> X-factor --> (Tenrai Ha) --> Finishing Shower
 - The moment Hsien-Ko's HC hits, X-factor and do it again. Like before, the
  moment the 2nd tenrai ha hits cancel into morrigan. The spiked balls will
  continue to fall after the initial hit lands.

Haggar (Rapid Fire Fists) --> Darkness Illusion
 - Cancel out of the last hit in Haggar's hyper combo to pull this off.



FANCY COMBOS
------------
 
Dante (Million Dollars) --> X-factor --> Million Dollars --> Darkness Illusion
 - L, M, H, S, air L, air M, air H, air 236+L, 214+L add H, Million Dollars
  two times and cancel into Darkness Illusion after Dante fires his second 
  to last shot. The enemy will helplessly tumble in the air until s/he hits 
  the floor and Darkness Illusion will hit 100% of the time. Can be done 
  ANYWHERE.
  NOTE: X-factor into the second million dollars BEFORE the second to last
  shot goes off. If the enemy gets popped up in between the two Dante attacks
  Darkness Illusion may miss given odd circumstances.

MODOK (Killer Illumination) --> Shadow Servant --> X-factor --> Darkness Ill.
 - When MODOK spikes the enemy into the floor cancel into the Shadow Servant
  and immediately X-factor into Darkness Illusion. The uprising blasts will
  carry the enemy, but you will catch up...

Amaterasu (Okami Shuffle) --> Darkness Illusion
 - Using Ammy, have her do L, M, H, 6+H, 2+H, 6+H, 2+H, 6+H, S, air M, air M,
  air H, air H, air H, 236+atk atk. While Ammy is comboing the enemy with
  fire, ice, and thunder get ready to cancel about mid-way through the
  thunder portion. If done correctly (or against a wall) the enemy will be
  floored into Morrigan's ultimate for massive, massive damage. 





------------------------------------
3.2) Solo Battle
------------------------------------

Morrigan can be a devastating character to fight. Despite having a small 
arsenal of normal skills she has one of the craziest combo potentials in the
game. Below are some combos I've discovered...


L, M, H (4 hits), S, air M, air M, air H, 623+M, (236 or 214 atk atk)

L, M, H (4 hits), 623+H, (236 or 214 atk atk)
 - NOTE: This specific combo does not work well in a corner!

L, M, H (4 hits), 6+H, 236+H, 623+atk atk

L, M, H (4 hits), 6+H, air M, air M, air S (3 hits), H (4 hits), S, air M,
   air M, air H, air 623+M, 236+ atk atk


Corner Only Combos

L, M, H (4 hits), 6+H, air M, air M, air S (3 hits), H (4 hits), S, air M,
  air M, air H, 214+S, air L, air M, air H, darkness illusion

L, M, H (4 hits), S, air M, air M, air H, 214+S, air L, air M, air H, 
   214 atk atk


=============================================================================
4.0) Missions
=============================================================================
In this section we tackle the missions (or at least the ones I can do).
Most missions are straight forward, but for some characters beating a mission
requires rediculously perfect timing and if I have completed them this 
section will be useful to those who are stumped.

Ones I've Completed: 1-10
Ones I have not completed: N/A


Mission 1 - Attack using Soul Fist
 Solution: 236+M

Mission 2 - Attack using Vector Drain
 Solution: 63214+L

Mission 3 - Perform a combo using a dash
 Solution: air M, air H, M, H, 236+M
 Strategy: double tap forward and Morrigan will dash diagonlly, allowing you
           to do air M, air H with no trouble.

Mission 4 - Perform an air combo
 Solution: 2+L, 2+M, 2+H, S, air M, air M, air H, air S

Mission 5 - Perform an air combo
 Solution: L, M, H, 2+H, S, air M, air M, air H, air S, 623 atk atk
 Strategy: This is a basic attack; an easy combo into the air, spike the
         enemy and follow up with her hyper combo.

Mission 6 - Perform a combo using a hyper combo cancel
 Solution: L, M, 2+M, H, 2+H, 6+H, 623+H, air 236+atk atk
 Strategy: Cancel out of the last hit of 623+H into the hyper combo

Mission 7 - Perform a combo using a crossover assist
 Solution: 2+L, 2+M, P2, 2+H, 236+H, 236+M, 623+atk atk
 Strategy: the trouble is knowing how the assist character works. What the
       assist character is supposed to do is juggle the enemy so you can land
       the 2nd soul fist and cancel into the hyper combo. The combo will 
       feel like 2+L, 2+M, 2+H, 236+H. Practice that until you can summon
       the assist in and finish the combo.

Mission 8 - Perform another air combo
 Solution: air S, 2+L, 2+M, 2+H, S, air M, air M, air H, 623+H, 236+atk atk
 Strategy: coming out of a jump press S to initiate the combo, follow up
       with a air combo and end with her upper cut canceling into her HC.

Mission 9 - Perform a combo using a crossover assist (corner only)
 Solution: air H, 2+L, 2+M, P1, 2+H, 236+H, M, S, air M, air M, air H,
          air 214+atk atk
 Strategy: coming out of a jump/dash hit H and follow up with the crouching
           L, M, H, soul fist combo into Tron's assist. With the enemy 
           unable to recover from Tron's attack until they touch the floor
           finishing the combo is cake.

Mission 10 - Perform a special combo (corner only)
 Solution: air s, 2+L, 2+M, 2+H, 236+M, X-factor, M, 2+M, H, S, air M, air M,
          air H, air 214+S, air L, air M, air H, air 214+atk atk
 Strategy: This is a helluva combo right here. Practice pulling off this 
          attack in parts and it becomes much easier. The major pain is
          continuing the combo after 214+S, but once you get the rythem of
          when you can start attacking out of it finishing the combo isn't
          too horribly difficult. For the x-factor cancel, doing it when or
          before the projectile hits works.
