Ghosts 'n Goblins... one of my favorite arcade games when I was growing up. :) Arthur debuted in the fighting game universe as a really cool and unexpected assist character in MVC1. His role in MVC3 is pretty much a replacement for Mega Man. That said, he comes up a bit short (no pun intended), since those are some mighty big shoes to fill (literally)! lol. 

In MVC3, Arthur resembles his Ultimate G&G appearance, which in my opinion isn't as "cool" as some of his others. I really wish they would've made him look more like his MVC1 incarnation. I thought the MVC "re-design" was particularly badass, notably his proportions and the way his armor looks. Anyhow, in MVC3, he's still faithful to his original design and has tons of moves & mannerisms from G&G. It's also pretty epic how he can't dash in MVC3 and how his jumps are so "floaty". In some ways he doesn't seem to fit in with the MVC3 cast, but he does his job as one of the "height-challenged" character in the game. lol.
