Norimaro is a nerdish, cowardly schoolboy-type guy armed with a camera; who throws common school items, mini Akuma dolls, and plushies as projectiles. From time to time, he also attempts to ask for his opponent's autograph mid-battle. He uses the comical "Ultra Variety Private Memories" Super attack, where he throws a massive amount of school supplies and other objects. He is Japanese "otaku" and a big fan of the fighter Chun-Li. He is also well versed in Marvel comics characters.

Norimaro is an original character created and by Japanese comedian Noritake Kinashi in collaboration with Capcom. However, Norimaro is a character who represents neither Marvel nor Capcom and is considered a "guest" character in the game. Noritake Kinashi himself did some of the motion capturing used in the development of Norimaro's 2D sprite. He a playable character appearing only in the Japanese arcade and console versions of Marvel Super Heroes VS Street Fighter.

Norimaro is a very random design, yet he's pretty elaborate. In a nutshell, he's a hilarious Japanese otaku stereotype... with a man-purse... and his moves are downright epic. He animates incredibly well and has some insanely funny mannerisms & in-game facial expressions. I remember the first time I saw him being played in the arcade version of MSH VS SF... I was in utter shock. lol. It was disappointing that Norimaro didn't appear in MVC2 (especially when there were 2 damn Wolverines in the game). If I ever had any complains about MVC2... one would be the lack of Norimaro. :(

As a joke fighting game character design, he's gotta be one of the best of all time. And for the record, Norimaro was trolling before it was even called "trolling".
