GraphicsIcon.png This game has unused graphics.

This is what happens when you take characters from Street Fighter, Darkstalkers, and Red Earth, squish them down into super-deformed versions of themselves, and have them fighting to collect colored gems while changing into wacky over-the-top costumes. It's Super Gem Fighter Mini Mix! Also, there's Capcom character cameos in the stages too!

Hmmm...
To do:
  • Unused graphics, such as unused mini faces for every character when they are being possessed by Ibuki's Flash Combo throw, and unused objects and effects for some of the playable characters, such as leftover sprites from Marvel vs. Capcom for Ryu's Shinkuu Hadouken.

Regional Differences

Continue Screen

Hmmm...
To do:
Add screenshots. Also, add a table comparing the Japanese quotes + translations and their English ones.

The Japanese version contains tips and tricks at the bottom of the screen to help improve your skills during gameplay, but this part was made empty in the international versions.

Additional Story Dialogue

Hmmm...
To do:
  • Rip and upload the Japan-only story cutscene voices that were unused in the International versions.

The Japanese version has some extra voice dialogue for every character's story cutscenes. These go unused in the international versions.
