Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds is the third installment in the series of crossover fighting games created by Capcom, in which characters created by Marvel Comics appear alongside Capcom's own characters. It features Dante and Trish as playable characters. The game's expansion, Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, released in November 2011, also added Vergil as a playable character. Both versions run on MT Framework, the same engine used for Devil May Cry 4.
Dante is now a playable character in the series, wielding Rebellion, Kalina Ann, Ebony & Ivory, Cerberus, Nevan, Beowulf, Coyote-A, Artemis, and Agni & Rudra. The character design for Dante is based on his Devil May Cry 3 appearance, with the "Hyper Mode" in the form of his Rebellion Devil Trigger. Dante's voice actors are Reuben Langdon and Toshiyuki Morikawa, reprising their roles in English and Japanese, respectively. Dante's theme song is a remix of Devils Never Cry from the Devil May Cry 3 Original Soundtrack.
Dante's rival in the game is Deadpool, a Canadian mercenary with whom Dante shares similarities. Both Dante and Deadpool master an arsenal of guns and swords, possess superhuman abilities, and use a lot of trash talk in battle. They can be seen in the Episode 1 trailer fighting in a bar named after them, until another character, Morrigan Aensland of the Darkstalkers fighting game series, pricks Deadpool in his rear end, thus ending the fight.
Dante's talkative personality also makes the transition. Many of his audible battle quotes show that he doesn't take fights too seriously. His special conversations retain his flippant personality as well. In the tie-in 12-page comic packaged with the game's special edition, Deadpool and Dante trade sarcastic remarks as they fight one another (Deadpool: Where you from, pretty boy? The planet of the Fabios? Dante: Jealousy will get you nowhere.). Dante later remarks on Galactus' appearance, stating that he would only be short of a cape and a cane to being "the biggest pimp I've ever seen".

Dante's theme in MVC3 can be found through this link:
One of Trish's alternate color schemes is based on Gloria, with a white shirt color, even the skin tone. The other is based on Dante's color scheme on DMC. Trish's English voice actor is Danielle Burgio, her Devil May Cry 4 English voice and mo-cap actress. Her Japanese voice actor is Atsuko Tanaka, who reprises her role from the anime. Her battle theme is a vocal remix of the DMC1 second battle theme Lock and Load, remixed with female vocals.
During her flight mode, she gains a glowing gold aura around herself similar to the one she had in Devil Trigger in Devil May Cry 2 though there is no dramatic increase in power.

- Round Trip: Vergil charges the Force Edge and throws it on the opponent, making the sword to spin around them.

- Rapid Slash: Dashes across the screen and past enemies with the Yamato, leaving behind a trail of multi-hitting slashes in his wake. Possesses invincibility frames.
- Air Trick: Vergil can teleport to various parts of the screen depending on the opponent's location. Unlike Dante, Vergil can teleport in three ways; in front of the opponent, behind them, or above them.
- Dimension Slash (Level 1): A screen covering hyper where he dashes about, filling the screen with Judgment Cuts. Can be executable in the air.
- Spiral Swords (Level 1): Glowing blue swords appear rotating around Vergil, which damage the opponent upon contact. Vergil can also stop them and set them to hover around him pointing forward, or hover over the opponent pointing downward, and fire one at a time as projectiles at the cost of 1 hyper meter.
- Devil Trigger (Level 1): Increases Vergil's strength and attack speed for a limited time and gradually heals red health. His attacks also become enhanced (i.e.; larger Judgment Cut) and he gains an air dash. Vergil does not build hyper meter while this hyper combo is active. He can only use his level 3 hyper while in Devil Trigger mode.
- Dark Angel (Level 3): While Devil Trigger is active. Vergil slashes the opponent various times, while creating floating blue swords. Vergil then turns his back as he returns to human form and has the swords come down on the opponent.
Vergil's battle theme can be heard through this link:
Lady only makes a brief cameo in her Devil May Cry 3 design as an ability card during Heroes vs Heralds mode.
- Primary: The length of instant attacks will be increased [Lv. 2], priority of shot attacks will be strengthened.
- Secondary: The length of instant attacks will be increased [Lv. 1]
