Marvel vs. Capcom series
In Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite, due to the convergence of the Marvel and Capcom universes caused by Ultron-Sigma, causing the two universes to marge, Wakanda is merged with Val Habar, a playable location from Capcom's Monster Hunter franchise, to form Valkanda, a playable stage in the game. Black Panther remains as the king of the merged nation, and he gains a loyal female Monster Hunter as his ally. Black Panther and Monster Hunter are non-playable characters in the story mode, but they later became playable characters in arcade mode as downloadable content.
