Ruby Heart

Ruby Heart is a French-speaking pirate captain with a prominent reputation across all seven seas. Traveling across the world with her crew onboard a flying ship known as "Partenaire" (French for "partner"; mistranslated as "Pare-Tonn're" in English, a misspelling of the French word for "lightning rod"), she's always on the lookout for objects with hidden magical powers to add to her personal collection. In battle, she can be seen manipulating several of these objects, which includes a water-manipulating book and a haunted chest containing hostile ghosts. She's also good at hand-to-hand combat and employs weapons like anchors, sabers and a whip.

While seeking out a way to steal the fabled "Armor of Erosion" from ancient times, Ruby Heart sees herself involved in the crisis brought about by Abyss' awakening and its devastating effects on the land. Unable to defeat Abyss alone, Ruby assembles the strongest heroes from the Marvel and Capcom universes. After Abyss' defeat, the heroes take a travel back on Ruby's ship, as she inspects Abyss's core, its true form. She briefly contemplates adding it to her collection, but seeing it has been cracked and is now devoid of power, she finds it worthless and cast it into the seas below.
Fun Facts:
Ruby Heart was going to star in a Capcom mobile title called "Dai Koukai Frontier" as one of the game's main characters. The game was planned for a 2014 release, but was indefinitely delayed and likely canceled. Capcom's Yoshinori Ono also revealed that Ruby Heart was a rejected Darkstalkers character.

Originally when MVC2 first came out... Ruby Heart was the "Oops, I didn't mean to pick you" character. (The real ones know.) This is because the curser on the MVC2 character select screen starts on Ruby Heart's icon. lol. As a competitive MVC2 player for 2 decades now, I can attest to accidentally picking Ruby Heart a handful of times. ^o^ Nonetheless, in fairness... Ruby Heart is a mysterious yet cool and stylish Capcom character design.

For a 2D fighting game character, Ruby Heart is surprisingly fleshed out. She has all kinds of interesting projectiles, props, and even an entire pirate ship that fills the screen during her super move. If you give her a chance in MVC2, she even has a pretty interesting play-style and pretty cool combos to try out. Interestingly, Ruby Heart was actually a rejected Darkstalkers character... and I can see it! If Darkstalkers 4 ever happens, you know Ruby Heart will be making her series debut! On that note, Amingo would also fit perfectly into Darkstalkers.
