Why is it called Happy birthday?


#1

Been hearing it for since the orginal marvel 3 came out and never question it but why happy birthday ?<br><br>Because hitting 2 chars is like a  present or something ? Don’t quite get it.<br>

During my birthday a few months ago I got a present and when I opened it up it was two dead characters.

I believe Noel Brown was the first to call it a “Happy birthday.” <br><br>And yes, it’s because the opponent gave you a gift, so Happy Birthday!!

Back in at least MvC2 we talked about the free character you got when you made certain attacks (randomly getting a double snap or picking up a surprisingly called assist with a super or otherwise surprisingly killing someone).  I think you’ll find both me and Matrix talking about how “wow, it’s my birthday?” for the free gift character that they’d given us.  I feel like that’s something Isaac would have said too.  But there’s thousands of hours of footage, and I for one am far too lazy to track that kinda stuff down.

I believe it originated during a match with PR Balrog and someone else, PR caught the assist of his opponent, and I think Noel Brown, said “happy bday” it was also PR’s bday at that time.<br>
