Firebrand / Red Arremer


One of the main antagonists from Capcom's classic 2D side-scrolling series, Ghost's & Goblins, and long time nemesis to Arthur. He's also known by the names: Firebrand, Red Reamer, and Red Devil in the English localizations of the Gargoyle's Quest series, Super Ghouls 'n Ghosts, and Ultimate Ghosts 'n Goblins respectively. 

There are three different incarnations of Red Arremer. The original Red Arremer (the one featured in SNK VS Capcom) is known as Red Arremer Ace. Red Arremer King is the the second incarnation of the character, appearing in Ghouls 'n Ghosts. Red Arremer Joker is a larger version of King who serves as the leader of the other Red Arremers and produces other Arremers... he debuted in the Game Boy Advance version of Super Ghouls 'n Ghosts & also appeared in Namco X Capcom. Lastly, Dark Red Devil appears in a duo before the final battle in Ultimate Ghosts 'n Goblins. Note that the names of the Red Arremer family follows a playing card motif. Red Arremer also makes a cameo in Soki's Tatsunoko VS Capcom ending.

Originally, I never thought that a Ghost's & Goblins monster would ever appear in fighting game. This bastard was pretty damn hard to beat in the original Ghost & Goblins, and he's also incredibly difficult to beat in SNK VS Capcom when controlled by the computer! As a design, he's a pretty cool-looking demon I suppose... yet, he also kinda has a certain "cuteness" about him as well. lol. His facial structure (in some artworks) kinda reminds me of a few characters Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. lol.

Firebrand didn't exactly fit in with the SNK VS Capcom Chaos roster, and doesn't really fit into UMVC3's roster either. He's just so odd of a design.... I think the only game he'd actually fit in with, is Darkstalkers (but I doubt that would ever happen). In fairness, he made a pretty decent MVC3 character.
