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

Linn Kurosawa is an orginal 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.
