Thanos is a supervillain from Marvel comics who first debuted the 1970s and gained prominence through the Infinity Gaunltet arc of the 1990s. In fighting games he debuted in Capcom's Marvel Super Heroes based on the aformentioned comic storyline as that game's final boss, with the further appearance in Marvel vs. Capcom 2.
Few mugen authors have taken on converting the character from various appearances, with Splode and CPOC being the first to convert the chacater on 2001, and Alucard making a custom version of the character in 2008. The_None has notably released a mostly acurate hybrid conversion of the character in 2016 that uses his MVC2 appearance as a base while bringing back some of the moves that were exclusive to MSH, and is as of this revision the most acclaimed conversion of the character.

Command and Special Moves
- Unusually for The_None - an author known for custom characters - his Thanos is a rare case of the author going for the nigh-perfect accuracy with relatively little custom content inserted in.
- In fact, the author went for accuracy so far he went to replicate the infamous Power Ball Glitch, which in MVC2 is done by making a Delayed Hyper Cancel before his Power Orb would leave Thanos's hand.
- The Gamma Crush finish on The_None's intepretation of Mind Gem super is a subtle nod to Thanos and The Hulk being voiced by the same voice actor, Andrew Jackson.
- Kamekaze was about to make a pure MVC2-centric conversion of Thanos, only to give up when he couldn't figure out how the Soul Gem would be programmed.
