Firebrand is a red arremer that made his first appearance in Gargoyle's Quest. While at worst the Firebrand from Gargoyle's Quest could be considered an Anti-Hero, Firebrand in the Marvel vs. Capcom universe is a different story. He made his fighting game debut in Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, representing the Ghosts 'n Goblins franchise alongside Arthur.
Firebrand is manevolent and cunning, only fueled by patriotism to his own realm and it's people. He loves stopping would-be heroes like Arthur, however he also enjoys stopping tyrants from taking over the realms
Long ago, a mutant gargoyle with red scales went on a quest to defeat Breager so that he didn't take over the Makai. He collected artifacts to make him stronger and stronger, until he was able to take down the king of destruction. That was Firebrand's ancestor, when Breager returned to take over the demon realm again, Firebrand rose up to defend his home land and destroy Breager. Firebrand would then find element themed crests to later take down Phalanx in some kind of revenge fueled quest. Then he threw the crests away out of pride of his own strength. Eventually he would join Jedah alongside Dormammu in the Dark Kingdom.
- Despite never appearing in Ghosts 'n Goblins the first game usually listed as his first is Ghosts 'n Goblins instead of Gargoyle's Quest.
- This could be because the Marvel vs. Capcom version of Firebrand is more based on the Red Arremer enemy from Ghosts 'n Goblins instead of the actual Firebrand.
- His Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 theme is remix of the opening theme in Gargoyle's Quest
