Amingo from Marvel vs. Capcom

Amingo is a…fighting Cactus.

He debuted in the crossover fighting game Marvel vs. Capcom 2 (2000) and never returned beside in a little Cameo-Form (via a Poster in one stage) in Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom (2012) . Super little is known about Amingo himself beside that he was searching to end this mysterious wind caused by Abyss which destroyed any plant-life.

There were rumors about Amingo being planned as a Darkstalkers character before who did not make it into Darkstalkers 3, other rumors say he was supposed to be a main protagonist in an own game..but nothing of that was ever confirmed..but both theories seem pretty plausible.

In the game he fights super unorthodox like many of the Darkstalkers characters.
