Chun-Li from Street Fighter has a number-one fan in Norimaro, a secret joke character in the Japanese version of Marvel Super Heroes vs. Street Fighter. Norimaro supposedly snuck his way into the fighting tournament to photograph his lightning-kicking idol.

An otaku (Japanese for a nerdy, overenthusiastic fan), Norimaro is scrawny and excitable. He survives in combat by throwing objects such as stuffed animals and drafting compasses at his opponents. His super combos have names such as "Ultra Variety Private Memory" and involve bizarre patterns of attack, one of which being Norimaro dressing up as a host of various Capcom characters like Mega Man.

Norimaro was created and voiced by comedian Noritake Kinashi. He was removed from all non-Japanese versions of the game due to Marvel Comics's reluctance to associate itself and its characters with him.
