This game is based on the inspired by the Alien vs. Predator crossover which started in Dark Horse comics. Many of the weapons, design styles and concepts from both films appear in the film. Xenomorphs designs similar to the versions in both Alien and it's sequel, Aliens, appear. The Major Dutch Schaefer character here is a reference to the hero with the same name who was played by Arnold Schwartzenegger in the original Predator movie. This Schaefer only vaguely looks like the actor. The cybernetic Smart Gun weapon in his arm could be a reference to mini-gun carried by Jesse "the Body" Ventura's character in that first film.

Linn Kurosawa is an original character who was created by Capcom just for the game. It is often mentioned that, despite being made by Capcom, her ties to this licensed game prevent her from appearing in any Capcom games. That hasn't kept Sylphie, the shopkeeper from Forgotten Worlds, from cosplaying as her in Namco X Capcom or a friend of Eliza Masters from dressing like her in Street Fighter Alpha 2. Sophie, the character who debuted in Capcom's Cannon Spike, shares many design elements with Linn.
